Key features

Real cars

Every vehicle has been digitially recreated in remarkable detail. From the internal structure of the headlights to the stitching of the seats, the team at Polyphony Digital Inc. have set out to infuse every vehicle with same passion that drove its original designers.

The full line-up consists of over 174 vehicles, including both competition and production vehicles that deliver a mix that caters to all driving enthusiasts.

Original cars

Vision Gran Turismo allowed the world’s auto makers to design fantasy road cars and bring them to life in the virtual world of Gran Turismo 6. This project will continue in Gran Turismo Sport.

Driving

In the same way you drive a real car, you will be able to control the vehicle represented in the game with increased depth to the controls. While it’s based on the principles of the very first Gran Turismo, the new physics engine has evolved significantly, making it suited for beginners and experts alike.

From basic skills such as hitting the brakes and how to turn into a corner, fundamentals can be learned from the bottom up, which will prove invaluable for newcomers to driving games.

Tracks

Building on the popularity of the many racetracks featured in previous Gran Turismo titles, including the Nürburgring Nordschleife (North Loop), there will be a number of new tracks in Gran Turismo Sport appearing in the series for the first time ever. These include the legendary “Tokyo Expressway” and the half-mile oval dubbed the “Northern Isle Speedway.”

A total of 17 locations with over 40 courses feature in Gran Turismo Sport, taking drivers everywhere from the Japanese metropolis to the Mexican-American border.

EXPLORE THE CAR CLASSES

Car category showroom

From commercial vehicles to concept and race cars – each of the automobiles in GT Sport can be divided into six categories. 

Gr. N

Stock condition vehicles including commercially sold automobiles and concept cars. This category is subdivided from the N100 to N1000 class, according to engine power.

Gr.4

Race cars with basic modifications, including the addition of safety equipment and weight reduction. These are equivalent to the real world FIA GT4 Class cars.

Gr.3

Race vehicles with full race modifications, including wider bodies and aerodynamics improvements. These are equivalent to the real world FIA GT3 Class.

Gr.1

These are ultra-high performance racing vehicles with specially developed bodies and engines. This category includes real world prototype sportscars.

Gr.X

These are extreme vehicles that do not fit in any existing race category.

Gr.B

These are rally cars modified for driving on dirt, with reinforced suspension and higher ride heights.

Presented in 2017, the Lexus’ beautiful modern coupe features flowing lines emerging from its elegant front fascia. The powertrain consists of a five litre V8 engine producing 477ps, combined with a direct shift 10-speed automatic transmission – the first for any passenger car to date.

As an addition to the 2nd generation model of the Cayman type 981C engine, this high performance racer is powered by the 3.8L horizontally opposed six cylinder engine of the Porsche 911 Carrera S. Many parts, such as the front suspension and brake system, are also carried over from the 911 GT3. 

Peugeot Vision Gran Turismo

This impressive machine was born from the ‘Vision Gran Turismo’ project, in which various automobile manufacturers around the world designed a sports car for the series. The monolithic shape, which only stands 1.04m above ground, creates a look that differs greatly from other sports cars, while this competition model is modified specifically for Gr. 3 category racing.

Toyota’s direct rival to the Porsche 919, this Prototype car boasts a hybrid powertrain combined with a turbocharged 2.4 litre direct injection V6 with a Motor Generator Unit (MGU).
