So very stubbly.
This page is rather stubbly and could use some expansion.
Are you a bad enough dude to rescue this article?

The first numbered entry in the Real Driving Simulator in nearly a decade, Gran Turismo 7 is a return to the classic Gran Turismo experience. With new RPG-style elements, the return of three legendary tracks, and a passive-aggressive instructor, the game includes elements from the past, present, and future of the series. According to Kaz, at least. Notably, it was also the first game in the series to be released on two consoles: the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5.

Unused Cars

Paint Sample Cars

The paint sample versions of Toyota GR Supra RZ '20, Lancia Delta HF Integrale '92, and Volkswagen 1200 '66 are coded as proper, unique cars (separate from the regularly drivable versions), just like the wheel and car color samplers from Gran Turismo 5. The cars can be seen on the Esteban Ocon vs Julien Fébreau event stream, where the stream's organizers were given access to all cars for the stream.

  • All of these cars use brakes from Toyota FT-1 (the original concept car) and drivetrain, engine (S65B40A-M3), and gearbox from BMW M3 Coupé '07, as well as a standard 1.5-way rear LSD as used on the E92 M3. Each cars' chassis is taken from the source cars; as such, the weight reflects that of the respective cars.
  • All of these cars are equipped with Sports Hard tires by default and include a fully customizable suspension pre-equipped, but with stock values applied. No other tuning parts are available for them.
  • All of these cars are listed under the Gran Turismo manufacturer.
  • Only the Delta can actually be driven by the player if it is forcibly added to the player's garage; even then, it lacks an engine sound. The other two cars cause a softlock when used in a race. Below is a video of the paint sample Lancia Delta HF Integrale being driven

Revisional Differences

To do:
Lots to document, including the infamous 1.07/1.08 payout changes and other things that can be found on GTPlanet's Undocumented Changes thread.

Failure Message

Version 1.02 and earlier Version 1.03 and newer
You nearly had it! Now take a deep breath and try again! Good work! Take a deep breath and try again!

In versions 1.02 and earlier (only accessible for players who received their physical copies early), the message the player receives when they fail a license test, mission challenge, or a Circuit Experience is "FAILED". This was replaced with "TRY AGAIN!" in later versions.

This change applies to both British and American English languages.

Paint Colors

To do:
Version 1.42 changed the Ocellus Teal paint chip; document how the old and new one looked.

Several misplaced paint colors (as purchasable from GT Auto) were moved in version 1.06, with one more change in version 1.11.

Paint Name Old Manufacturer New Manufacturer Version
Championship White Abarth Honda 1.06
McLaren Orange BMW McLaren 1.06
Gran Turismo Silver Mercedes-Benz Gran Turismo 1.06
Jeep OliveDrab BAC Jeep 1.11

Additionally, two paint chips were renamed later on:

  • The WRX Gr.3 FIA GTC Blue color (belonging to the variation livery of the Subaru WRX Gr.3) was renamed to WRX Gr.3 GTC Blue in version 1.15, likely due to the suspension of the FIA partnership for the Gran Turismo World Series esports championship.
  • The AMG GT3 EVO '20 Orange color (belonging to the Mercedes-AMG GT3 '20) was renamed to AMG GT3 '20 Orange in version 1.42, disacknowledging the unofficial "Mercedes-AMG GT3 Evo" name.

Performance Points Calculation

Starting from version 1.15, the calculation of Performance Points now disregards the current gear ratio being used (a behavior previously used in Gran Turismo 5 Prologue), instead using the car's default settings depending on the transmission part being used. This was intended to stop PP manipulation exploits involving gear ratios, mostly for purposes of entering the SRT Tomahawk X Vision Gran Turismo to high-paying, PP-restricted events.

Version 1.23 expanded further on this, as suspension setup and limited-slip differential settings were also ignored in PP calculation, primarily targeting an AFK Remote Play script, as well as PP manipulations involving the Alpine A220 Race Car '68 and the Tomahawk X using Comfort Hard tires.

Another PP recalculation occurred in version 1.31, as part of physics-related changes in that version. This change also affected several lap time requirements for certain missions, license tests, and Circuit Experiences, resulting in leaderboard resets for them.

Duplicate Opponent in Gr.1 Prototype Series

Version 1.21 fixed an issue in the Gr.1 Prototype Series events where Angel Inostroza (one of the series' esports players turned an AI opponent) could appear twice in a grid, driving both the Toyota GR010 HYBRID '21 and the Hyundai N 2025 Vision Gran Turismo Gr.1. This was done by renaming the latter driver to T. Hoshino (who previously drove the Hyundai Genesis Gr.B Rally Car in the World Rally Challenge events).

World Touring Car 600 at Tokyo Expressway - East Clockwise

The tire wear for one of the four "money" races in the game, World Touring Car 600 at Tokyo Expressway - East Clockwise, has been adjusted twice since it was originally added in version 1.11. Originally, the event had 9x tire wear. The tire wear was increased to 15x in version 1.25 (along with removal of wall contact penalties) and later to whopping 25x in version 1.31.

BMW M2 Competition '18

Version 1.26 added the BMW M2 Competition '18 as one of the new cars. The car originally came with wipers placed on the right-hand drive position, despite the car being a left-hand drive car; this was quietly fixed in version 1.29.

AMG Mercedes CLK-LM '98

Version 1.31 changed the manufacturer of the AMG Mercedes CLK-LM '98 from AMG to Mercedes-Benz; the car was also renamed to Mercedes-Benz CLK-LM '98 in the process. Curiously enough, the car was listed as a Mercedes-Benz car in some of the Behind The Scenes pre-release videos.

Fuji International Speedway

Version 1.32 updated some of the track's surroundings, including the addition of the Fuji Speedway Hotel near the final turn.

Offline Time/Drift Trials

Prior to version 1.35, it was possible to use the player's garage car in the pre-race menu when in offline mode's Time Trial or Drift Trial, with caveat that custom liveries will not be loaded, and certain variation liveries may not appear properly. This option was removed in version 1.35.

MAZDA3 '19 Capitalization

Version 1.38 capitalized the name of Mazda3 '19 to all-caps, rendering it as MAZDA3 '19.

Opening Movie

Version 1.40, branding itself as a Spec II update, includes a new opening movie. Unlike the previous Spec II updates in GT5 and GT Sport, there is no way to watch the previous opening movie once the update is installed.

Version 1.39 and earlier Version 1.40 and newer
