Gran Turismo 6 Update 1.17 Adds New Cars, Fixes Issue With B-Spec Mode

Earlier today, developer Polyphony Digital pushed live update 1.17 for Gran Turismo 6 on PlayStation 3, which adds some new cars and fixes an issue found in update 1.16:

Vision Gran Turismo

  • The LEXUS LF-LC GT “Vision Gran Turismo”,“Alpine Vision Gran Turismo” and “Alpine Vision Gran Turismo Race Mode” have been released.
  • After the update has been installed, the cars can be purchased from the [Vision GT] option within the [CARS] section in “My Home”. Alternatively, it is also possible to obtain the cars by completing a lap (regardless of the lap time) in the new Seasonal Events, available only for a limited time.
  • The “Alpine Vision GT” racing suits and helmets have been added to the [Special Outfit] page of the [Racing Gear] option within the [TUNING & MAINTENANCE] section, accessible from “My Home”. The suits and helmets can also be obtained through the corresponding Seasonal Events, available only for a limited time.

Resolved Issue

  • The issue discovered within Update 1.16 regarding resuming a “Championship” race after suspending progress while playing in “B-Spec” mode has been addressed.

If you missed it at the end of last month, update 1.16 for Gran Turismo 6 made the event races of Career mode compatible with B-Spec, where the AI drivers race for the player:

You can use B Spec for races you might find difficult to complete such as some of the longer endurance races, or when you just want to watch the race. You can select [B-Spec] from the quick menu displayed before the start of event races.

Do you still find yourself playing Gran Turismo 6? Do you hope we get Gran Turismo 7 this year?
