Gran Turismo 7 finally welcomes the Kenmeri Nissan Skyline GT-R

Gran Turismo 7‘s October update has dropped, bringing four new cars to the game including the beloved Kenmeri Skyline GT-R. With the addition of the KPGC110, the game now has every GT-R generation. And as the release video shows you can do things with it in the game that no one would dare attempt in real life with one of just 197 Kenmeri GT-Rs built. Definitely not drifting it on a track like a common S13 with original bias-ply tires shrieking in protest.

The Skyline gets interior detail as well, but even in 1973 no Kenmeri’s fit and finish ever looked this tight. As good as the graphics are, you can tell it’s a computer generated image because the lines are too crisp and the lines too uniform. There’s amazing texture detail on the door panel though.

The other cars in the update include a 1980 Maserati Merak, a Mazda Roadster NR-A (a Japanese track-ready variant of the ND that comes with roll cage, tow hooks, and Mazdaspeed seats), and a 2018 R35 NISMO GT3. All are fantastic additions to the game and prove that you don’t need gimmicky graphics or celebrity appearances to make a car game fun.

      Don’t bother, the game is a microtransaction loaded grindfest that is not worth your time.

        That’s not true. It was problematic in the first month but that has been solved long ago. There are no microtransaction in GT7. The only thing is that it’s possible to buy in game credits for real money (up to 2’000’000 cr.) in the PS Store if you want. This is not especially advertised in game, nor encouraged. Considering that legend cars cost up to 20’000’000, it’s financially more interesting to gring in game than actually buy the credits. It took me around 100h to finish the game 100% (gold everywhere, races, missions, licenses, etc) and get all the trophies and honestly it was worth it all the way. Also the great point is that they still update it every month to bring new stuff, for free.
