Gran Turismo 7 March Update: 5 More Cars, New Nürburgring Layouts!

The following is a rundown of everything you can expect to see in the March 30, 2023 release of Update 1.31 for Gran Turismo 7.

Most important features

The update primarily focuses on updating the game’s mechanics, which includes the tires, suspension, aerodynamics, and assists.

Highlights include alterations to tire wear and temperature, the basic settings for suspension on racing cars and select road vehicles, and the modification of the relationship between drag and downforce and ride height. Several vehicles’ Performance Point totals will be recalculated as a result of these modifications.

The levels of sensitivity of active stability and countersteering help have been changed, and the eagerness with which traction control, active stability, and countersteering aid intervene have all been modified. Presets in the Advanced and Professional levels also include adjustments to the default values.

Because of the ripple impact on handling, numerous mission objectives, including Circuit Experience and Licensing Exams, have been adjusted. While this means that the leaderboards have been cleared, you will not lose any of your previous achievements, nor will you receive any bonus points for posting a new record.

Steering and force feedback for controller users have been enhanced as well.

Two new layouts for the RING

This month, the “Nürburgring” in Germany will receive two new track layouts. The “Endurance” circuit is 23,864 meters in length and is a hybrid of the “Nordschleife” and “Grand Prix” configurations. This difficult and tricky track has been used in events like the Nürburgring Endurance Series. It bypasses the Grand Prix portion to get back to the Nordschleife more quickly (NLS.)


The 120Hz option is now available for the PlayStation 5, allowing users to take use of a 120Hz display. This version now enables the previously unsupported Variable Refresh Rate (VRR), which can only be used with a VRR-capable display.

Those who stream races can benefit greatly from the new live replay option, and players who have a keyboard attached can use it to adjust cameras during lobby races.

Starting with Season 4 of the as-yet-unannounced Exhibition Series, changes will be made to the online championships, including increased entry slots for GT2 (DR B) and GT3 (DR C and below) Leagues and revised penalty settings and race regulations.

New to Scapes is the “Cherry Blossoms” collection, with twenty-eight spots decorated in the style of Japan’s national flower, the sakura tree.

Legends Cars have been dynamically priced using data from Hagerty’s pricing guide. New cars arriving at the dealership after today’s update will have revised prices in effect.
