New Gran Turismo 5 DLC This Tuesday: Car Pack 3, Speed Test Course

+ Posted by Brian Gauld // Media Partnerships Specialist, SCEA

Hey, GT fans! I’m happy to announce our third batch of premium downloadable content coming to Gran Turismo 5 next Tuesday, January 17, along with some updates to the game itself.

The first piece of content is Car Pack 3 for $5.99, featuring six new cars from both past and present. Download Car Pack 3 to get your hands on Lamborghini’s latest flagship model, the Aventador, along with the Jaguar XJR-9 LM racecar, Aston Martin V12 Vantage, the 66′ Volkswagen 1200, Mini Cooper S Countryman, and the new Nissan Leaf.

The second piece of new DLC is the Speed Test Course Pack featuring the Route X test course, which will be available for $3.99. If you caught the PDI-made promotional trailer for the new Acura NSX Concept vehicle (that’s right, the NSX is back!!), you’ve already seen a sneak peek of this new track. Route X is a massive oval with giant banking corners, allowing you to test your vehicles’ maximum speed and performance, plus some beautiful vistas to rush by at 200mph. You’ll be able to use this track online, and in Arcade and Practice modes.

And since the Speed Test Course Route X is the perfect proving ground to test the performance of your vehicles and all of the custom tuning and modification you’ve done, we’ve gone one step further and made that even easier for you. You’ll be able to track things like your mile and quarter-mile time, acceleration and g-force.

Also coming next week is the XL Edition of GT5 for $39.99, along with a minor update to Gran Turismo 5 via free downloadable patch. Check here for more details on the new improvements coming in next week’s patch.

If you’ve missed the first two DLC drops in October and December, check here for more information about all the great new content available for Gran Turismo 5, including the new car and track packs.

Finally, GT Academy USA winner Bryan Heitkotter is gearing up to take on the 24H Dubai endurance race this weekend, taking turns with fellow GT Academy Europe winners. Follow GT Academy on Facebook to find out how they do in this grueling 24-hour race.

Heh, I was thinking I'd take the Leaf for a gentle jaunt around the Nordschleife .

Can't wait to paint the Lambo matt black to give it that stealth look.

Good stuff!

I seriously look forward to the Beetle '66. As already said, an RM version would be just awesome

Aston Martin, Lambo, Jag (though already a std car), good good good!

Since PD seems to release everything asked, yeah that's true; a testing track, more Pre cars, cockpit for all the std cars...

I'm gonna say my wish, a DLC that unlock more RM for already existing cars.

Everyone can dream!

hahaha....your remote controller's batteries will die before the "green" car can finish one lap at  the "green hell".

"in world news today, a Nissan leaf was found "expired" on the final caroussel at Nurburgring's Nordschleife today. Witnesses say it stumbled and bogged, and a tree branch, bare of its foliage was found hanging out of the exhaust pipe. experts from japan are on their way to germany as we speak with a 4 mile long extension cord to try to "zap" the car back to life."

Dont be silly, just give it a jump off your ipod. Or get a balloon clip the jumpers to it and rub it on your head to build up a static charge

Good news, maybe in a future DLC we could get the Seattle City race track!

You mean like a new variation track of Seattle Circuit?

I'm pretty sure that all '66 Beetles were 1300cc engines (42HP too, IIRC)

Anyway, Anyhow, Anywhere!
