Gran Turismo Sport Update 1.57: Patch Notes - Toyota Supra makes its return

Rumours of Gran Turismo 7 being released alongside the PS5 are plentiful.

For now though, we've still got GT Sport, which is receiving regular patches and updates from Polyphony.

Details of the latest patch have been unveiled by the developers, so what's can players expect from Patch 1.57?

The return of an icon

For those that are old enough to remember, the Toyota Supra was an elite sports car back in the early 00s. The Supra was driven by Fast and Furious' Brian O'Conner and one of the most popular cars during Need for Speed's heyday.

The Supra ceased production in 2002 but is back with a vengeance in the roaring 20s.

THE WORKS: This new car comes with a full interior for added realism

Chief Engineer at Polyphony Tetsuya Tada, described his in-game rendition of the new Supra:

‘Numbers are one thing, feeling is what matters. Optimally balanced with a 50:50 weight distribution and a low center of gravity, it provides powerful acceleration with a twin-scroll turbo. The quick handling enabled by the wide-body and short wheelbase is a result of a pursuit to achieve an ideal sports car, and its glamorous and elegant form and straight-six engine sound combine to give it an aura that is unrivaled by others."

The best way
to experience the car though, is to take it for a spin yourself, it won't
disappoint!

There
haven't been any tweaks to the gameplay, nor any bug fixes.

Update 1.57
is available now for all GT Sport players.
