Gran Turismo 7 Update 1.26 Includes Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta

Added three new exciting cars

BMW M2 Competition ’18
A cool FR that hides the power of a demon in its compact body.

The BMW 2 Series Coupe is popular as a high-performance rear-wheel drive compact car. The BMW M2 Competition is an extreme machine, powered by a 3.0-litre twin-turbocharged S55 inline-six engine from the M3 and M4. What you will notice first is the charming bodywork. The winged appearance is the epitome of speed. Although it is only 4475mm long, it is about the same size as the E36 M3. Whether in the city or on winding country roads, the car offers an incredible sense of control, as if the drivers’ own nerves have reached the furthest corners of the body. The S55 engine develops a maximum power of 404 hp. with a maximum torque of 56.1 kgf. Even with BMW’s long history of peak performance inline-six engines, this model revs exceptionally high and explodes as boost increases.

Ford Sierra RS 500 Cosworth ’87
Tuned Cosworth masterpiece that dominated touring car racing

The Sierra was a relatively standard family car with an aerodynamic hatchback body produced by Ford Europe from 1982. But in 1985, the impression of motorists about the Sierra changed dramatically. This was because the famous Cosworth added the Sierra RS Cosworth, affectionately referred to as the “Cossie” by enthusiasts, to the selection. The Sierra RS Cosworth was powered by a 203 hp 2-litre inline-4 engine. with DOHC and turbocharger. The chassis has been strengthened and the exterior has been enhanced with fender flares and a large rear spoiler. A year later, its power was further increased to 223 hp and a limited edition Sierra RS 500 Cosworth of 500 units was added to the lineup, with an engine strengthened for racing use and improved aerodynamic details. And, of course, all these improvements were developed for touring car racing. From 1988 to 1990, Sierra won several Group A international titles in countries such as Germany, Great Britain, Australia, Japan and New Zealand.

Nissan Silvia K’s Aero (S14) ’96
The top-of-the-line S14 adds a rear spoiler and a leather-wrapped steering wheel.

The S14 Silvia debuted in October 1993 as the successor to the hugely successful S13, and with a new large body, Nissan hoped to continue its previous success. The width of the S14 is 1730mm compared to the 1690mm of the S13 and the track width has also been increased. The new model is also 30mm longer (4500mm) and 5mm taller (1295mm) to increase body dimensions. However, the softer lines of the body design most emphasize the car’s width. The K-class model also had 16-inch wheels as standard. The engine is a retuned version of the S13 SR20 series. The top-of-the-range K model is equipped with an intercooled turbocharger and produces 14 hp. more than the previous generation at 216 hp/28 kgf/m, while naturally aspirated Q and J models produce 157 hp/19.2 kgf/min. The basic suspension design has also been carried over from the S13, using A-pillars with a multi-link system at the rear. The car was also available with Super HICAS electronic rear wheel steering. In 1996, Nissan released an updated model with an extensive redesign. The mild appearance of the exterior has been lifted up with gloomy headlights and a large real spoiler for a sharper and brighter appearance.
