Famous Racing Track Makes Remarkable Transition to Gran Turismo 5 DLC

October 15, 2011 Written by Jonathan Leack

It’s been a long time coming, but Gran Turismo 5‘s first avalanche of downloadable content is now only days away. We know the details, but is it good enough to bring players back to the world of Gran Turismo?

We’ve gotten our hands on more than a dozen screenshots of GT5‘s upcoming DLC, and surprise is the first word that comes to mind. The two new tracks can be see in the ingame images, and to put it lightly, Spa Francorchamps has made a remarkable transition to GT5‘s engine, and is set to eclipse the level of detail found in the original map set, which have remained the bar to beat since the game’s release a year ago. Check them out for yourself:

Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps is located in Belgium, and features some gorgeous scenery similar to Nürburgring. It’s roughly a 4.3 mile long track, and has been a favorite for several famous racing drivers over the years due to its inclusion of some highly advanced turns and high-speed points which allow for highlight-worthy moments of takeover.

Gran Turismo 5‘s DLC will be available on Tuesday after the weekly PlayStation Store update. You can read more about what it will entail as well as pricing in our announcement article.
