Late last night, Polyphony Digital brought out patch 1.12 for Gran Turismo 6, which brings along new cars, Quick Match, Sierra Time Rally, and more.

Check out the full list of patch notes below (click the links for more info):

Vision Gran Turismo

  • The “Toyota FT-1 Vision Gran Turismo” has been released. The design concept FT-1 is honed to perfection in this rendition to enhance its features and designs required for pure racing competition.
  • The car can be purchased in the “Vision Gran Turismo” section after the update, but you can also acquire the car by completing a full lap in the limited time seasonal event, regardless of the lap time achieved.

Sierra Time Rally

  • The “Sierra Time Rally” has been added to [Special Events]. In the first original long course “Circuit de La Sierra” modeled after the Ronda region of Spain, players will attempt to complete a lap around the course within the allotted time.
  • Time will be extended by passing the checkpoints, and your score will be calculated according to your distance driven. Overtaking other cars will raise your combo level, and there are other possibilities of raising your score based on your driving skills. We invite you to check it out.

Quick Match

  • [Quick Match] has been added to [Online]. When the event is selected, players will automatically be matched to other players around the world for a quick and easy online race.

Additional Cars

  • The following cars have been added to the [Dealerships]. You can also access these easily from the [Recommended Cars] section: Toyota FT-1 graphite, Nissan GT-R NISMO ’14 (players who participated in the “GT Academy 2014” Online Qualifiers will receive this car free of charge).

Additional Gauges

  • [Additional Gauges] have been added to [Custom Parts]. You can select instruments to add to three gauge slots, selecting from boost meter, water temperature gauge, oil temperature gauge, tachometer, speedometer, oil pressure gauge, and fuel pressure gauge.

Steering Controller

  • Official compatibility has been added for the Thrustmaster T300RS. It is possible to reassign keys from [START] – [OPTIONS] – [STEERING CONTROLLER]

Force Feedback

  • [FORCE FEEDBACK] that could only be adjusted from [START] – [OPTIONS] – [STEERING CHARACTERISTICS] before can now also be adjusted from the [DRIVING OPTIONS] displayed in the [QUICK MENU] before driving.
  • Also, the force feedback that was only adjustable under [FEEDBACK STRENGTH] can now be adjusted in [FEEDBACK MAXIMUM TORQUE] and [FEEDBACK CENTER SENSITIVITY] sliders. Now it is possible to set the steering sensitivity near the centered position, and the strength of the feedback during extreme cornering independently.
  • Force feedback can now be adjusted on 200 degree lock-to-lock type controllers such as the GT FORCE RX.

Other

  • The motor assist control for the Toyota TS030 Hybrid ’12 has been changed. Because the motor assist only works when the car is at full throttle (over 80%), the motor no longer comes into effect during partial throttle positions while cornering.

There have been issues reported with Quick Match and other features after updating to 1.12, so don’t be alarmed if you encounter problems after installing the patch.

Will you be playing Gran Turismo 6 today?
