New track, cars, & features arrive in GT7

At long last a major patch has hit GT7, here are the Gran Turismo 7 Udpate 1.26 patch notes!

This month’s update brings the usual three new cars, but there are plenty of extras for players around the world.

Let’s dive in!

Gran Turismo 1.26 patch notes

The expected three cars are the BMW M2 Competition ’18, Ford Sierra RS 500 Cosworth ’87, and Nissan Silvia K’s Aero (S14) ’94.

The Ford & Nissan are available at Used Cars, while you can get the BMW at Brand Central.

The World Map has a celebratory feel as the GT World Series World Finals are happening and the 25th Anniversary approaches.

There is also a FREE bonus car for players, the Gran Turismo Red Bull X2019 25th Anniversary. This can be claimed from the banner at the top of the World Map, but only until January 3.

Along with all those cars, Road Atlanta has finally arrived in Gran Turismo 7 too. The new track is immediately available, and includes a 320,000 credit 30-minute race.

While not quite an elite credit-grind option it still has a pretty good reward, so there is reason to try it out!

Along with all that players can now, finally, sell cars. This option is found under the “Car Valuation Service” in Used Cars and unlocks after clearing Menu Book No. 39.

Don’t expect to get masses of credits for your cars though. Right now the Audi Quattro Pikes Peak is in Legend Cars for 2,125,000 credits, but you can only sell yours for less than half that. Ours is currently worth 979,110 credits. That’s not bad, but it’s still quite the depreciation!
