Gran Turismo Sport car line-up revealed

Gran Turismo Sport car line-up revealed

A total of 162 cars form the starting grid for Gran Turismo Sport ahead of its October 18 launch

PORSCHE will join the Gran Turismo racing sim for the first time as part of a 162-car line-up making up the new Sport edition launching later this month.

The small number of cars pales in comparison with the 1200-odd that feature in the game the Sport version is based on, Gran Turismo 6. It is expected that more models will be added in updates and as players open up new segments.

As its name would suggest, the latest version focuses purely on sports and race cars, and six competition classes: Group N is for stock road cars; Group 4 for GT4 cars; Group 3 steps up to GT3 and Group 1 covers full-blown prototype, LMP1 machines and access to some of the vehicles that have featured in the Vision Gran Turismo series of concepts. The Group N class is further divided in to 10 segments according to power output.

Rally stages and vehicles return in the Group B class, which brings back the magic and peril of 1980s Group B rallying, while participants can have a laugh at some of the outlandish hardware featured in the Group X class, which is for fantasy concepts that you probably won’t see on real-world tracks any time soon.

Players will be able to progress through a number of “sport mode” racing categories including daily races for building and honing skills against other players online. The main event in sport mode is the FIA Gran Turismo Championships, broken into manufacturer series and the Nations Cup.

Virtiual competitions with other meatspace players will be on an even playing field thanks to Advanced Match Making, which uses driver and sportsmanship rating indexes to pitch similarly skilled and mannered drivers against each other.

Race fairness will also be maintained with an automatic “Balance of Performance” (BoP) function that adjusts the weight and power output of each participating vehicle regardless of its variety or class where compatible.

Here is the full list of exciting cyber-hardware to keep you eagerly anticipating Gran Turismo Sport ahead of its arrival:
