Lamborghini Aventador, “Route X” Circuit, & More in Reported GT5 2.03 Details

Apparent information about Gran Turismo 5’s third round of DLC has appeared here in GTPlanet’s forums. According to “Space Empire”, GT5’s 2.03 update will be launched on January 18th, and will include a few of the following new changes and features:

  • New themes for My Home in GT Mode.
  • An option for tire wearing in Pit Strategy (B-spec).
  • Simulates regenerative braking on electric cars.
  • Chaparral 2J Race Car ’70: Fan down force option.
  • Fixed unintended pit stop error in the final lap of a B-spec race.
  • 12 new colors and 12 new wall papers for My Home theme.
  • Electric cars run slowly without applying acceleration.
  • Regenerative braking affects the cruising distance.

New downloadable content packs will, reportedly, also become available. The “Speed Test Pack” will include the new “Special Stage Route X Oval” revealed in the recent Honda NSX Concept video, and Car Pack 3 will include the following new vehicles:

  • Nissan Leaf G 2011
  • Aston Martin V12 Vantage 2010
  • Volkswagen [Beetle] 1200 1966
  • Jaguar XJR-9 LM Racecar 1988
  • Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 2011
  • Mini Mini Cooper S Countryman (R60) 2011

As always, until this information is officially announced and verified, things could change, so you’d be wise to temper your expectations. Regardless, this appears to be legitimate information, so stay tuned for further details as they develop.

Edit: This information has now been confirmed by the Asia/Hong Kong official PlayStation site, with the car pack (Car Pack 3) priced at approximately $5 (47HK$) and the “Speed Test Pack” containing Route X priced at approximately $4 (31HK$).

Special thanks goes to Space Empire for discovering and sharing this material, and thanks to Carlos Fandango and diegorborges for making me aware of it on such short notice!

    Loving the Aventador!! just 1 problem with it!! has anyone else had the problem with it sliding around on Daytona after about 4-5 laps in? i’ve tried to find a setup to fix it but still no luck!! only happens online. Also its fully upgraded with racing medium!! if anyone could help i would appreciate it thx!!! psn is iceman_989

  2. breezy23d

    i think they should have more premium supercars in the next DLC or update for Ex. Bugatti veyron SuperSport & Grand Sport, Lamborghini murcielago roadster, mercedes benz SL series, the 2012 dodge charger,BMW M6 cuope & convertible, Ford Shelby GT500 & the GT500 supersnake, Audi R8 convertible, Pagani Huarya and Cinque, and some more manufactures wouldnt hurt either like SSC, Marussia, Hennesy,etc.

  3. Dominic Toretto

    2 cars that we already have but now premium, SUPRA next PLEASE!!… Beetle lame, why a nissan leaf? if someones gonna use a hybrid they’ll use the CR-Z , I like the Aston (although every late Aston is basically the same thing, engine, chassis etc) & the Lambo is really kool & so many cars & they chose a mini & btw an UGLY 1 & $4 for only 1 track is kinda stupid… oh well lets see the next DLC (I know its hard to keep up with millions of fan demands but Kaz IS a racer & he has to know what ppl really like)

    1. spikeyhairdude

      I think they had to put a nissan in because polyphony is connected with nissan if you know what i mean. i like the leaf. it different and can use it in hybrid/electric races so it fun. not all of us like fast cars. Think about the game as a whole and not just for your sake. people like driving it while others dont

    2. GT5 X1

      Your opinion is not a fact. I like hybrids, but that doesnt mean EVERYONE likes them. Same with everything you listed.

  4. 2012GT325

    OMG! I’m totally speechless. This is exactly what I’ve been wanting since the start. In fact, just the other day, I was talking to my brother about how cool it’d be for PD to add new Aston Martins and a test track.

  5. RoadRocket77

    The LAMBO AVENTADOR. SWEET!!!!
    I just HATE the fact that I JUST bought Forza just to drive this car…Bye bye forza, hello gamestop trade-in counter. Gonna use my trade money to buy the DLC.
    I need the XJR-9, so.. WOO.
    and the V12 vantage… V12!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I got me a few new fast toys to tune up. The leaf is staying in the truck, but the rest of these cars are cool. The old volkswagon might be an interesting drive if it’s premium.
    That test track will be a godsend to topspeed tuners like me… Redbull/Veyron anyone?

  6. dudekilla8

    My biggest GT5 dream is to drive the Lamborghini Diablo and McLaren F1 GTR Longtail Road Cars on the Autobahn as a track. GT5 not GT6.

  7. deadinmeat

    I would like to see the “favorite” car list extended in the next update, cause for me 100 cars in the favorites is few.. Someone send this idea to polyphony digital, i apreciate it. Thanks

  8. SEIDO463

    PD, great mixture of car in this pack and Route X looks exciting ( hope it is fully functional online)

    Thanks to all at PD for the hard work.

    Hey 70hemi, the CTS-V isn’t the fastest sedan in the world. That title belongs to the Porsche Panamera Turbo!!

  11. paracefan2002

    Hey 70hemi, the CTS-V is NOT the fastest sedan in the world. That title belongs to the Porsche Panamera Turbo!!! 7:56 at the ‘Ring, compared to the CTS-V’s 7:59. BTW, 0-60 in under 3 seconds. Ben Folds sums my point up by saying “why you gotta act like you know when you don’t know….”

  12. Watain

    i honestly see every DLC as a bonus, each time more content comes into the game I am more then greatful, has anyone noticed how the DLC seems to be getting better (in a way) each time? i honestly see the next DLC being even better!
    in my opinion, the aston martin, aventador,and the Test Track, are absolutely amazing, and I literally cannot wait to get my hands on them. i recently got a DFGT so things are even more exciting for me.

  13. MOV Games

    Hi, first ever comment here.
    Ive been a GT fan ever since i first got GT2 back back in 2000, still occasionly play it today.

    I indeed liking this update, a test course is nessecery in GT, and the Aventador, v12 Vantage and VW Beetle are great!

    The fact that the XJR9 is now premium made me want to list the cars i think are a necessity to become premium;

    Bugatti Veyron, an obvious choice
    Audi R8 LMS (both versions)
    Lamborghini countach lp400 and 25th
    Lamborghini diablo NOMAD GT, surprised it returned after GT3
    Mazda Furai concept
    Wonder what 2.04 will have?

  14. rocketcaron

    This is very cool downloadable content if you ask me… I mean, a new track is already awesome and then 3-4 cool cars is just BONUS!

    Oh, also, stupid Forza illiterates who don’t know a thing about that game but keep bashing it, get a f****ng clue!!! If you guys think FM4 sucks you don’t know a thing about driving and thats a FACT! Sign in for a trackday and get educated by an instructor.

  15. moxlox

    Jordan – this news article seems to crash on an (my!) iPad a few seconds after the page starts up. Happens on both the GTPlanet app, and when accessed through the Safari browser. Not sure why – it was doing this even before the number of comments got to a high count here. All other articles work fine.

  16. Vinura

    What i really want to see in a DLC pack is the option to choose our wheel size, offset, and width. PLEASE PD MAKE THIS HAPPEN!

  17. Scuderia Paul

    This is fantastic DLC! It is beyond comprehension how some people are being so negative. I cannot wait to get my mitts on these new cars and to cane my fastest cars around RouteX.

    My previous 2 comments would not display so hopefully this one has…

  18. Super_Colossal

    You know, I just thought…I hope we can actually do arcade and online races in addition to speed tests.

  19. amine787

    That’s good news for only those who have monry. That’s suck, we have to pay for that, I already paid the game and they want me to pay more ? Fk that sht..

    1. 70hemi

      Oh yeah, big time! Cuz I actually own one of the same year! It’ll be exciting to test how similar it is to the real thing!

    1. 70hemi

      I agree dgar, Especially the CTS-V, That car needs to be in a future DLC… Why wouldn’t you want the worlds fastest sedan?

  20. 70hemi

    YEEEEESSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I CAN FINALLY HAVE MY REAL CAR IN GT5!!!! THANK YOU PD FOR THE ’66 BEETLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    One problem though, pretty sure in 1966, and ’66 only, they were 1300’s, not 1200’s… But Still, i can just paint it and I’ll have my real car! I can’t wait!

  21. GMW

    I usually dont comment but I just signed in so I could say: Lamborghini Aventador!!!! At last! And a new track, test track at that! Wow!! I am excited!!!

  22. Kino321-X

    OH MY GOD. OH MY FREAKING GOD.

    XJR-9 Premium? Test Track? Aventador?

    Polyphony Digital, thank you. Thank you so much!

  23. CorvetteConquer

    The only car I dislike is the countryman. I am assuming Mini wanted that car added more than anything else. Anyways, a decent DLC. FINALLY!

  24. HKSBro92

    Wow last month was the 2012 GTR, this month we get the Aventador AND a V12 Vantage (yippie)….I wonder whats in store for the next DLC…

  25. Buzz17091991

    I want some cars from Audi and Mercedes -.-
    Some SL, SLK, the SLS AMG 2011 and Audi A1, A3, A5, S5, R8 Spyder, Q5 and Q7 :D

    1. GMW

      Hey crcn11, I want More Mercedes and Audi too! The 2012 C63 with Perfomance Package coupe and sedan, the 2012 C63 Black Series, The E63 and CLS63 AMG with 550hp performance packages, the new 2013 SL, 2012 SLK, 2010 SL 65 Black Series, the 2008 CLK63 Black Series and more. From Audi I’d like the new 2012 RS5, 2007 RS4, RSTT, and the R8 GT.

    2. Meatwad67

      Totally agree with your car list GMW! Also, as I mentioned on my last post, I’d like to see the new 2012 C-Class Coupe, Audi A5 and BMW M6 DTM race cars!

  26. Foxiol

    Nobody said this but…amazing the amount of Volskwagen in the game now with these 3 new cars. I believe in a future DLC we´ll see the New Beetle form the 21st century.
    I like to see the beetle because my grandpa had one (skyblue colour) and i´m going to make it look like that.

  27. G35US

    Sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeet! Plus a Free (most likely, just as the Toyota 86) NSX Concept!!!! Lets start burning some rubber.

  28. raybould1345

    I love the look of this DLC and will defo be buying it. As I know they are putting classic cars in like the Beetle. I hope to see the Classic Mini in soon as premium. :)

  29. moxlox

    Only last night I was just thinking I wonder if they’d ever bother changing the colours and wallpaper in GT Life as I have got bored with it…..and then thought nah, waste of time they’d never do that. Now they have, how freaky. Its not high on my wish list by any respects, but quite glad they have.

    …and that VW Beetle is ace!

  30. chrishan

    Damn can’t wait. This is going to be awesome.
    When we are talking about electric cars already..
    I want the FISKER! :D

  31. gtpsuper24

    Finally a balanced DLC package. Little bit for everyone, I think i’m most happy over the XJR-9. Although I would have prefered the Toyota GT-One, Nissan R390GT or CLK GTR if they were going to go back and redo a standard car. I betting this will be the best selling DLC out of all of them.

  32. Blood*Specter

    The NSX Clip right away told me there was something cooking with the Special Stage. I was hoping for Route 11. But having a high speed test track will be nice. And a Jaguar XJR-9 LM Racecar 1988? Conversion of standard to premium, here we come!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)

  33. Fryto

    Don’t understand it either. There’s something for everyone in this DLC. And the track and cars are separate packs, so you only need to pay for what you want.

    Both sets are great in my opinion and they both provide stuff people were crying for to have them :-)

  34. RemyKock

    ‘You’ve got to be joking, an Aventador!?’ That was my first thought, the V12 is gonna be awesome, but, why they’re putting another XJR-9 in the game, will the Standard-one stay?
    Love the track, maybe something for the next DLC
    – More Maserati’s?
    – The 2011/2012 F1 Cars?
    – In-game car changing when your in menu’s of Practice or something
    Just thinking, Porsches?

    1. jah24car

      Hey RemyKock can’t have Porsches EA took the title so Forza had to drop it, and every game could drop it but sims online have it too but EA has it more we have to deal with RUFs atleast make new RUFs for GT5!

  35. Doober

    That lamborghini was the most asked for car. that test track was asked for a lot also and it includes a 400m for accurate 1/4 mile dragging. I think this proves PD is really taking in these fan request.

    1. jah24car

      I think next PD needs to get some new Paganis and some real tracks next like Watkins Glen, BUT BATHURST BE FUN TO DRIVE ON!!!

  36. panjandrum

    Wow, this looks really nice. I love that they are including non-japanese non-modern cars in the car pack. Obviously I’m most excited about the Beetle. (Gotta say though, that they really need to include a Beetle or Ghia new enough to have the 1600 dual-port engine in it, and the research the upgrades properly: That’s the engine everyone builds up in the VW world, and 200+ hp of usable street power and a car that weighs as much as an Elise would be incredibly fun. But that’s nit-picking. Having a premium ’66 will be wonderful too.)

    I’m impressed and can’t wait to download it. (Now, if we could only convince PD to RELEASE A PACK OF ALL THE CLASSIC TRACKS!! Every single GT5 player I know plays GT4 more than GT5, because of the old tracks. El Capitan, Seattle, Costa di Arria, George Paris whatever it is: these tracks we all love and miss, and unfortunately there are no real equivalents to them in GT5. I don’t care if PD doesn’t even upgrade them in terms of graphics or physics or anything; I just want to be able to drive the tracks I love!)

    1. jah24car

      not really buddy I don’t the tracks are all right on GT4 but GT5 offers way better cars and the tracks yes I agree with you on the tracks but El Capitan sucks, Seattle awsome, costa di arria no, and paris no, I want Infenion back and a new track like Watkins glen road course to be in gt5 more

  37. nick98

    my own notes 4 the DLC
    Aventador: EEEEEEEEEEPPPPP!!!!! AWESOMENESS!!!
    Beetle: it shall be fun! XD
    Leaf: Meh.
    Aston V12: Jeremy Clarkson shall be stunned lol
    XJR-9: Castrol livery or Silk Cut livery? And is it going to be Premium? i just don’t get it!
    Route X: it will be AWESOME with an X2010 or X2011!

    1. jah24car

      WELL LOOK THE XJR-9 FINALLY A PROPER RACE CAR I DON’T HAVE TO RACE MILLIONS OF CREDITS ON AND ITS PREMIUM!!!

  38. Meatwad67

    Does anybody else see see the potential with this DLC that I do? Test Course+Nissan Leaf+Beetle=Epic drag battle LMAO!

    Cars I would like to see in future DLC:

    500 Abarth (still!)
    Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Black Edition Coupe
    ANY DTM 2012 car
    Mini Countryman WRC
    Peugeot RCZ
    Any Shelby/Dodge FWD (Omni/Charger GLH-S, Lancer, CSX)

    1. 70hemi

      I’d like to also see some smaller, more, “Underappreciated”, shall we say, American Cars, Such as a Gremlin, just for fun.

  39. Hypergolem

    Wow!!! Amazing, can’t wait for the Aventador, the Leaf, the Aston Martin but especially i love the new track! Hopefully it would give us some options for drag racing.

  40. Scuderia Paul

    I had a crisis on my way to work this morning when reading this. Fantastic DLC which I am so excited for. I cannot wait to try the cars and the 1/60s Photomode phtots should be crazy at 500kmh in an X2011 at RouteX.

  41. Scuderia Paul

    I had a crisis in my underpants when reading this heading into work. Fantastic DLC and I for one am over the moon. Cannot wait to try the cars and the Photo Mode 1/60s photos should be crazy at 500kmh at RouteX in an X2011.

  42. crcn11

    I think this is one of the most positive responses to a DLC / spec upgrade. If PD keep this kind of work up, I’ll be very happy. Thanks PD and please keep going in this direction.

  43. xzeroracer

    Koenigsegg CC8S
    Koenigsegg CCR
    Koenigsegg CCX
    Koenigsegg CCXR
    Koenigsegg Trevita
    Koenigsegg Agera
    Koenigsegg Agera R

    …damn. they prefer the Bettle.

    1. jah24car

      Forza and EA has Koenigseggs, so why not GT but whatever Koenigseggs are Murders on wheels, AND it be good but the Bettle technically is a Porsche 911 xD

  44. TokoTurismo

    They are purposely hating on the DLC for no reason like COME ON step up your attitudes! Everyone wanted the Aventador and here it is which Most of us are super happy about hehe, and yet still they whine? If you’re so angry GO USE THE FREAKING FEEDBACK SETION! That’s why it’s there! And don’t even come up to me and say “Well I did and they are totally ignoring it, sniff.” Then be patient BIG BABIES!

  45. NaganoRN

    AVENTADOR?????????? HEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEELYEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  46. Rphilip

    THANK YOU KAZ! THANKS YOU PD! THANKS YOU ,YOU THE FANS FOR LETTING YOUR VOICE BE HEARD!

    Lets keep the ball rolling all the way through 2012 and until GT6 comes out!

    Like the other voices on this forum said, more European cars , more muscle cars, more Mustangs, more famous race cars, more tracks, more rims, more RM for the cars, just more of everything!

    We support you KAZ! As we know you support us!

    Thanks again!!!! A very appreciative car enthusiast off and in the game!

  47. tika

    Really good news the upcoming DLC I love the Car pack, well three out the six. I didn’t buy the last car pack 2 DLC for those where no cars I would drive, but this upcoming DLC is great news. Now I only have one wish and that is that PD shut work our take a look at Jay Leno garage and put some of his cars in the game we already have his tank car so way not some more cars from his car collection…

  48. Elitekilla29

    This game just keeps on getting better and better and better every time a DLC comes out. Excellent job pd. The only track im going to be on route x for the first couple of days or so. And the new Lambo looks amazing.

  49. JIBU-R

    So…Premium Beetle…Niss…aaarrrggghhhh!!!… Where is my Premium Supra, Hachi… Aventador and Vantage are nice, what brings me to DB9S, Diablo, 360 Modena, 355 etc. i don’t get it…

  50. mdaley1

    Amazing stuff PD! Just keeps getting better. I would love to see the following cars in future DLCs..

    2012 Camaro zl1
    2012 Shelbly gt500
    2011 BMW m5
    Premium version of 2010 Jaguar xfr

    On a side note, has anyone else noticed a gliche in the engine sound for the Jaguar xfr since the last update. The sound has been replaced by that of some kind of bus or truck now. But all in all great work PD cant’t wait for this new content.

    1. seanchump

      Wait.
      The dates says 18.
      This will be released on January eighteenth of the year two thousand and twelve.
      JORDAN.

  51. Nfin1ty

    Lets hope that i can get the beetle either on black or gray, my dad has a black 1967 beetle and had a gray one from 66.

    Now i want to compare the real life one with the GT5 one…

    Thanks PD!

  52. NoonenF1

    New tracks are always good, but I wonder about the Jaguar XJR-9 LM… We already have the standard version, will the premium versions come the Castrol livery perhaps?

    Good news all-around!

  53. forzaazzurra

    Great DLC! We’re getting hot new cars, electric and racing!
    And I can only imagine the next DLC with the Ferrari FF. I already see myself drifting in Chamonix with it :)

  54. RoarOfZonda

    AVEEEEENNNTADOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOORRRRRRRR!!!!
    YESH!
    NOW THIS IS A PROPER DLC PD! THANK YOU! PLEASE INCLUDE EXOTICS IN ALL YOUR UPCOMING FUTURE DLC’s!!!!!
    F50, Testarossa, 250 GTO, 250 TR, 250 GT, koenigsegg, Aston Martin DBS, Virage, just MOAR MOAR MOAR EXXXOTICS!

  55. SAVoxleitner

    Hmm…the Chaparral fan feature looks interesting. Yes, I’m excited about the Avendator, but I’m more excited about having a second premium Aston Martin, me saving 4 mill plus on getting a Jaguar XJR-9 at the UCD or, if it’s updated, OCD, and a genuine track to test cars on.
    But the most important thing here, is HERBIEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

  56. Turbo-Kai

    the prices for the DLCs are adequate…
    It is good to have the choice to buy the track but not the cars, or the other way round, or both or nothing…
    I bouight the first DLC pack but not the second.
    This next one I will buy because of the tracks for sure and because of the Lambo I guess….
    but I would love more to have new licences!!!
    So long…C U

  57. a100_sausages

    BBBBBBBBBBBBBBBEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEETTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  58. Ecchi-BANZAII!!

    Hmm the new Lambo, nice… Beetle??? OMG OMG OMG!!!

    That Beetle will get the number 53 and I will pwn the X1 drivers.

  59. kregore610

    Ok im happy for this DLC but what if the Aventador is bad as the other lamborghinis?. I swear to god i will be pissed

    1. ROYALEFATALE

      supposedly the real-world Aventador is more tame than the other lambos, much easier to drive according to Top Gear, who knows how it will be in GT though

    2. GT6mebe

      The only lamborghini that I find physically hard to drive in GT5 is the countach the only one that tries to kill me.

    3. Lambofanghini

      The Countach is my favorite car to drive in the game. I guess I’m a glutton for punishment. You have to really be in the mood to drive when using this car or it will destroy you. I’ve beaten many a drive on the ring online with it, and nothing to me looks better in replays. My murc isn’t bad at all though since I’ve tuned all the kinks out of it. Drives like a dream now.

    4. CarBastard

      I agree.

      Both the Murcielago and the Gallardo are terrible compared to their counterparts. Maybe it’s the tires, I don’t know but they really don’t feel at all like they match the “It has so much grip and you never go near the limit, but when you do it kills you” description that JC gave on his “Supercar Showdown” DVD. The Murcielagos on GT5 are alway on the limit, always so nervous and so over/understeery and too unstable for a 4WD car with such enormous tires. The car just doesn’t feel right. It could be due to the Sport Hard tyres, but then again cars like the SLS AMG and the F430 use the same tyres and they feel controllable, great, they aren’t all over the place.

      Please PD, a reality check for some of your models would be dearly appreciated :D

  60. Frozen

    I want the possibility to sell the cars you buy as DLC!! If you do sell them and then want them back, you can just buy them in the dealership, so why don’t let us do what we want with our cars?

  61. Dude27

    Some car choices are really dull… I would give a lot for an Ariel Atom, an Audi S5, a Peugeot RCZ, a Ferrari 308 GTB, etc… but inbetween awesome cars (Avantador, Vantage, jaguar LM), we get a slow leaf, a slow beetle and a slow Mini….

    6-8 months of dev painfully spent on a slow wasteless car… what a (stupid) waste! Really!

    1. HKSBro92

      If you want a game with nothing but fast cars men buy when they suffer from mid-life crisis…get a need for speed game. We’re getting an AVENTADOR and yet you still want to complain because you didn’t get an Ariel Atom or an old Ferrari that no one cares about? If you don’t like the DLC then don’t buy it.

    2. Dude27

      Seriously,
      1/ How much time will you play with that leaf before it takes dust in your garage? Anyway, cars like the Leaf are just here for MARKETING purpose, like a big ingame commercial (GT86, new NSX, etc…) they should be free!
      2/ if you had the choice, would you go for the leaf or for an Audi S5 to play and tune in GT5? answer is easy…

      I love the Avantador and the Vantage, theses are cars that you want to play in GT5…

    3. counter345

      And who are you, to decide what everyone else would like to drive? I know the Ariel Atom, Ferraris seem “cool”, but why don’t you stop, and think to yourself; “Hmm… Maybe not everyone else will have the same opinion as me! And I’m not the most important person in the world!”

    4. GT6mebe

      dude that is not what GT is about….and that Beetle is by far my favourite car in that list do you know how fun it is going to be put some dirt tyres on that and just driving.

    5. Lambofanghini

      Thank you PD for diversifying our DRIVING experience. GT has always had real world poor man’s cars and super cars alike, you should be used to this variety by now. I like lambos, but am also interested in what the new countryman drives like. I enjoy my basic cars just a much as I do my extreme race cars. How about you?

    6. Watain

      dont forget, there is also tuning…..
      also, some of the best and most fun online races have been with cars around 100hp, small short course, such as Tuskuba and everyone in the race had a blast doing such races for literally over an hour
      one of my most favorite cars in GT5 is my 90hp Fiat 500 (the old one, dont remember the year)
      i love the fact that we are getting faster cars, and slower cars – they too are needed to make a good game
      if you want all cars to be fast maybe go play another game thats more arcade like

    Would be cool we can purchase cars 1 by 1 instead of the whole DLC. I appreciate Nissan Leaf as a zero emission car but I’m NOT interested to use it in a videogame, and I couldn’t care less about the VW Beetle really. I rather buy new DLC cars in this way than waste money on stuff I don’t care and won’t use. I know, not much money but that’s not the point.

    1. erik1127

      The enviromental greenies like to tell you zero emissions. What about the coal power plants which produce the electricity. Whats that coming out of the smoke stacks. Smoke?

    2. occasionalracer

      ^^ Ya which is why it would be nice to see all countries in the world shifting high focus on wind turbines and solar panel implementation so that you can come home, plug into the car and let completely cleanly generated electricity charge it up. I bet you are from the US were NOTHING has been done in this regard…. shame on such a neglect for our world from a SUPPOSED world power! Germany is creating 40% of it’s electricity consumption from renewable sources…

    3. erik1127

      Comparing Germany to the United States is apples to oranges. Germany is about the size of Michigan. If we were to build solar and wind farms it would take up two thirds of our land to produce forty percent renewable. Anyway I see you have bought into the global warming hoax.

    4. HKS racer

      I’m for the best possible way to produce energy without polluting, whatever it is, I agree we don’t need smoke or nuclear power plants, there are other ways… BUT that wasn’t the point of my post, nor to compare countries. I was just talking about a better way to purchase DLCs. Buy just what you want. We have 3 interesting cars now the Aston, the Jag and the Lambo, I just wanna buy these + the test track. I don’t want the other two.

    5. occasionalracer

      What a bright young man you are erik… let’s compare the apple to the orange shall we…

      USA total land area: 9.600.000 square kms vs Germany’s 360.000 square kms
      USA Population : 310 million vs Germany”s 82 million

      OR relativly looking : USA has 32 people per sq. km vs Germany having 230 people per sq. km….

      Now you tell me what your arguement is here? Why shouldn’t USA with the vast amount of land it has come up with anything to feed it’s hunger for energy? The reality is Sad! The U.S is stuck in the industrial revolution and can’t seem to take any initiatives to get off the liquid drug. I guarantee in 10 years the US is going to be the laughing stock of the developed world.

      Now if you’re having any doubt about this little “hoax” that these silly silly environmentalists are throwing out there, you can always go into your mommys garage and turn her Dodge Caravan on and just chill out for a bit. Don’t worry, you’ll just be getting a healthy dose of a combination of neurotoxic fumes that are sure to wake you up to the reality.

      I’m not being a smart@$$ am I ?? Nissan Leaf for the win!!

    6. erik1127

      First of all, I am sure I am older than you. The infrastructure would cost a few trillions. When it is economically feasible and money can be made by the private sector than it will be done. I am all for nuclear by the way, however our enviromental policies are agaist it. Drill baby drill. Sounds like if you had it your way, GT6 would be called “THE REAL PEDAL BIKE SIMULATOR

    7. HKS racer

      Ok erik you like nuclears huh? You should go on holiday at fukushima, inside the reactor, breath some “fresh air” get some radiations, come back in the forum tell us how you feel and die a couple of years later. I rather have a mountain bike than cancer.

  63. AuToNoMy

    hurrah see PD do listen thank you it is the top two things i wanted the lamborghini and a high speed oval and you delivered thank you soooo much kaz and the PD team Gran Turismo 5 is now officially the best racing game ever now :)

    and i can’t wait to get my spec II in feb :)

  64. canieaturchikn

    How about instead of the nissan leaf we get the NSX concept,hello PD stop teasing us! And yes I am complaining and I don’t care.

  65. pauloSandar

    YES! I’m sure I’ll love the new track, and I’ll buy the DLC for sure! I’m not loving the Beetle and the Leaf, but that Aventador…

    1. Lambofanghini

      I’m still trying to get this car. Now I must have it. Didn’t have the credits the one and only time I noticed it there, but now with B-Spec racing credits being through the roof I seem to have too much cash on hand. Come on UCD, show me the car, nowwww!

  66. leigh991

    New Cars Should Make Anyone Happy For Wat They Got, In This Case Getting. So Save Ur Strength For Playing Not Complaining

  67. XXI

    So, I’m hearing all this has been confirmed at Playstation.com (Asia)

    I’m sure there are numerous Forza fans that drop in from time to time to dust some crops, try to get you excited. Don’t take the bait.

  68. Chad D.

    You know, the X might stand for 10, so Route 10 maybe…………but then, Route X sounds pretty awesome on its own.

    1. nick98

      “Route X sounds pretty awesome on its own.”
      (chuckle), yup! it’s got that feeling i can’t get any words to describe it!

  69. dazman

    Am I the only person more excited about the vantage v12 than the aventador. Still looks like a tasty update/dlc bundle. Om nom nom.

  70. TheKitten

    You made my Day PD And KAz it keeps geting BETTER AND BETTER, i cant wait but im not on my ps3 this weekend im not on ifve been of a 2 weeks i cant wait ill i get back on this im looking FOrward now i can break in my cars without braking yayayayayay. im loooking wd to the Aston Martin and maybe the Lamborghini im not fan of that but More FERRARIS PLS F50 but Very happy

  71. fureddo

    Oh oui, excellent!!!! Seems Xmas ain’t over yet!!!
    Aston Martin Vantage, Lambo Aventadorrr!!!… Can’t wait to learn more about it!

    1. A_Higher_Place

      What about the Aston? One of the most beautiful models by them coming to the game!! And they’re always big for power!

    2. nick98

      RACECAR: “You sure you don’t mean the Huayra or are you reffering to the Tricolore?”
      i want both! i <3 Pagani!

  72. Florin85

    We want more europene cars like the new bmw series , audi’s , mercedes , ferrari.. this game just gets better and better.

  73. Rphilip

    WOW ! What a dream come true! Thanks KAZ!

    Please add some new Mustangs in there too!
    A Boss 302 track edition
    GT500
    And some American Super cars would be nice as well like the SSC.

    Once again thanks!

  74. TurboProp

    Super cool! Didn’t see this one coming…I hope we can put a turbo on or at least get 200 HP with engine mods on the Beetle. Now that would be fun…

  75. caseycar5

    Premium beetle!!!! And a aston Martin v12 but wheres the American cars ? I like everything exept Russian cars

    1. Tidselbak

      Actually I think, it could be pretty cool, to have a communist championship (like in Top Gear). Let us get some really crappy cars. “It’s not hard to drive fast in a fast car, but in a slow car, it’s much different”

  76. SolidS2k

    Hopefully they will be making more of the LeMans cars premium from now on :D what an update…one of the best by far. Can wait!!!

  77. Foxiol

    I screamed a little…YEAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!
    That track is beautiful, those cars are outstanding…wow…wow i mean WOW!!!!!

    Yesterday i was excited for rFactor 2 because of the realistic physics and i am a PC user and have tons of racing games and sims but you know what? Gran turismo 5 is the best racing and simulator in the market HANDS DOWN PEPLE.

    This game is beautiful and is getting better and better and one year far from the release of it…tell about a game that gets better and better with time…there is non…

    Amazing PD just AMAZING!!!

    1. Foxiol

      You can race in that track and test the cars in different modes!!! ‘The test course “Route X” and a mode where you can test the machine’s performance will be added.’ Comfirmed by PlayStation . com Asia

    2. nick98

      yeah! that will be awesome! racing in Route X with my X2011 (maybe a 5 lap race) will be a real joyride! and probably i will put as BGM a hard rock (probably Metallica) or K-pop (surely Super Junior… yeah, Korean music in a Japanese game…unfitting.) song!

  78. xR0ADRASHx

    How about fixing the online lobby issues before giving us more stuff we don’t need. Wake up PD this game is falling apart. Everyday another league shuts down due to the horrible conditions we have online

  79. DrTrouserPlank

    It’s not really a track though is it? not in the sense that you will be able to race on it, or that it would be any good to race on.

    It’s better than nothing, but driving in a straight line or around some weird random corners doesn’t appeal much.

  80. mister dog

    They can wait with GT4 until PS4 for all i care, if they give us updates cars and circuits we WILL be playing GT5 in 2 years from now and be happy about it. Thanks PD for the commitment shown towards us fanatics.

  81. Lambob

    I’m afraid I am going to throw money down on a Thrustmaster T500RS upon reading this fantastic news, so soon.

    1. Jacobmurer

      I have the t500rs (modded w/ handbrake) +playseat A1 GT and th8rs shifter… In my opinion one of the Best buy’s ever made.

  82. ChevyMikeGT

    I like all the extras and cars but I don’t want to keep paying for DLCs for only one track! I would like to see a real track pack mabe 3-5 tracks every few months! Only one track at a time is kind of silly…but what ever cuz I’ll still buy it…!

  83. CromaTurboIE

    the Jap have really fed up!
    instead of the old clunker VW Beetle, could not put the new Alfa Romeo Gulietta and Grande Punto Abarth?
    They enter 2 cars UGLY Nissan Leaf and VW Beetle old mah!

    1. sporkafife

      I’m pretty sure that the comments section is covered by the GTP AUP. I’m pretty sure that for most of that comment you just mashed your fists into the keyboard without thinking about grammar, and actually making the comment readable. By the way, the second word in your comment is actually a very offensive racist term.

  84. creati

    what would be cool is for pd to task fans to design a fantasy circuit, provide a bit concept art a sketch here and there detailing corners, camber etc. that would great.

    1. A_Higher_Place

      See I thought of this too, EXCEPT using the course generator we have. Find a track layout you like and submit it in a contest. Then the winners track would be rendered into an environment (city, forest, race way, etc)

    1. kollosson

      Can’t believe people are actually finding a reason to complain about this DLC, any DLC for GT5 is a reason to celebrate as far as i’m concerned because the premium cars in this game wipe the floor with any other, its as close to the real thing you can get. The Lamborghini Aventadore is as exciting as it gets in terms of new cars, i’m so buzzing about having the chance to tame that beast and standard to premium is very exciting because it means there is more to come. Love the original beetle and the XJR-9. The new Test Track looks awesome, this game just gets better and better. Stop complaining and enjoy.
      ( i do wonder sometimes if the complainers are Forza fanboys, more than likely methinks )

      1. MadmuppGT

        I dont get it either, I mean theyve got some truly fantastic cars, a legendary race car and some interesting ‘normal’ cars (which in my mind are the bread and butter of any GT game… and on top of this brilliant car pack as test course that looks like it doubles up as a drag strip and even a few rumours skipping around about a skid pan… all this will no doubt come in for way under 10 bucks. Frankly I’m over the moon, but I guess I’m easily pleased… oh wait sorry I meant to say ‘not ungrateful’

      2. Lambofanghini

        Yeah, I know what you’re talking about. It’s like Boooooo, the DLC sucks, Boooooo, the little dinky car sucks, Boooooo, the fake track sucks, Boooooo, what I wanted aint in there. And they came all the way here to say it too. Makes you wonder.

      3. Biombo3

        That’s right m8! A aventador, beetle, xjr9, a fabulous track, and some people r not grateful. Go on and play need for speed!

      4. jah24car

        yes man makes me wonder if you don’t like gt5 so much go play need for speed or modnation racers seriously or don’t play the game at all, this is making me over joyed!!! MY FIZZY IS HAPPY THAT WE GET ADVENTADOR!!!

      5. jah24car

        Hey Kollosson i play GT5 (alot when i first got it) but after you play Forza 4 theres things on there (car and track wise) I want for GT5 i mean seriously the Adventador is finally here on GT5, and I still wish PD gets Infenion back on GT before 6!!!

      6. TokoTurismo

        @jah24car Maybe they’ll appear in GT6 cuz Kaz did say he’s saving content for it. But we may have to wait and see I guess…

  85. Rios

    Hellz yes! They heard my plea, Lamborghini Aventador just like I wanted, well me and like a million other people, but I’m still gonna take credit for it like they did it just cause I asked for it. : )

  86. creati

    I was always under the impression people buying signature edition would get all dlc free… was mentioned by amar 212. dont get me wrong its great there adding stuff… but unashamedly gt is turning into a bit of a dlc milking machine. wont mind if classic tracks are free or cheap.

  87. aronh17

    This is great! I don’t like Lambo too much because I’m a Ferrari guy, but that Aventador looks exciting. No NSX concept? That sounded nice. As many complaints there may be just ignore them. I mean, it’s true Forza has a better car list but in my opinion GT5 has the better physics so I enjoy it more. Just got a Driving Force GT as well and that’s coming in about 4 hours so perfect timing! To verybody that is excited and appreciates the work they put into the game, have a nice day! To the rest of you… Don’t buy it.

  88. eugene2023

    PD please add signature edition stealth cars as dlc many people will buy them for collection!!! it will cost you nothing to do really!

    1. Foxiol

      No! We Signature Edition owners has that right because we paid tons of money for that exclusive content. Stealth and Chrome line are mine…lol
      Really if they release a DLC with those cars (already in the game at least the models not the layers,not too much important) it will be a cheap option because now we are getting new cars and if they do that we’ll get cars that we already have. No sense at all.

    2. Gerarghini

      I’ve said it once and i’ll say it again. YOU GUYS GOT MORE THAN THE STEALTH CARS! They did that with the Classic WaW Zombie maps for Black Ops. I think that after this much time, it should be released. Spending $100+ just for the stealth cars, rediculous.

  89. numbnuts70

    great effort pd.very nice track and some of the cars but all this stuff shouldve been in the original game.
    why dont you reward your gt5 fans with free downloadable content instead of squeezing more money out of them?
    Haven’t you made enough money off of gt5 worldwide sales?

    1. greggypoos

      “free downloadable content”? What about all the free updates? This is the best-supported game I have ever known of! I am more than happy to give them a bit more money here and there – even if I don’t particularly want the content – because they deserve my support in return for theirs.

  90. Photo

    Dear Kaz, Why is the test track DLC. Oh and for god sake, please dont let the Bugatti Standard>Premium conversion be DLC!

  91. RedBaron

    Thank you very much, PD. This is one wonderful DLC :o)

    Please next time try to fill the PORSCHE gap, really use that contract with RUF and model every generation of RUF premium starting with Yellowbird. Then GT’s car portfolio becomes very complete, only few legends will be missing (60’s Ferraris + F355, some BMW M’s, Audi Quattro S1 and few more). Thanks in advance.

    1. aronh17

      The Porsche license it being let go at the end of this month from EA, Porsche could be next month’s DLC. They can model the cars in the game already, they just can’t release them. If not, RUF premiums would be nice! Whatever comes out, I will continue to support the game by buying the DLC. The amount of content I have received in updates would mostly be released in a new game for other companies.

    2. nick98

      w-what? EA-Porsche contract ends in Feb? if so, why not asking PD for the Carrera GT and the 918 (both Spyder and RSR)?

  92. ZDUPH

    OMG My dad had a ’66 Beetle! Good times drifting that bad boy. and the first standard to premium conversion is the XJR-9?! HELL YEAH!

  93. sgllocal

    PD is going backwards with this new dlc. crappy cars and crappy oval track too. way to go pd. back to battlefield 3 i go

    1. GT6mebe

      Backwards? Everyone here thinks it going forwards. Route X is not just an oval its a test track for cars. Oh well guess you cannot please everyone especially the clinically insane.

    2. TokoTurismo

      Go back to BF3 and stay there… I can’t believe some people are hating on this for no reason whatsoever. Kaz and PD are doing their very best to keep everyone happy, and yet still they hate. Just shut up and get over it already…

    3. Foxiol

      As much as i love BF3 i still have time for my beloved GT5 and i´m buying every DLC and i think this game is getting better and better every time they upgrade it.
      No game gets better with time…it gets boring. But GT5 being a racing game is one of the unique that keeps you playing by the years. And trust me i have tons of games collecting dust. GT5 is in the box of BF3 and when i am not playing BF3 i play GT5.

    4. ttfn

      like i said earlier……if you dont like it dont buy the bloody thing…..stay among the minority whilst the majority has more fun than just “oooo look, damn im dead again”

  94. 37kazzmark

    wait…. did he say where he got this info? yes I know you can see the pics, etc but maybe someone is quite good at photoshop and making up PD style info ;) I’m 80% this is legimate but with no telling’s of sources, I’m left guessing..

  95. tika

    Great news the Lamborghini is coming to GT5 and the Aston V12 Vantage as well to. Plus A new track wonderful.
    And finely A great race car in premium.
    And good that they fix the problems .
    Now I hope they fix the you can’t sell our you can’t delete this car from you’re garage for the DLC cars as well , because I want to be Able to delete these DLC cars from my garage.
    Still don’t like the way PD sells there DLC in car packs inn want to buy one car at the time, so that I can buy the Lambo and the Aston so that I don’t have to buy A silly mini our Nissan leaf.
    Those are cars I don’t care for and I don’t want them.
    The same with the colour pack the last time the give us paint you will never use I want to be able to choose which color scheme I want.

    PD, WE WANT FREEDOM OF CHOOISE IN THE DLC….!!!!!

  96. gordongt

    Why oh why bring the Nissan Leaf into it???? And a second XJR-9??? Its abit poor this one although the lambo and SSRXO has me exicted!!!!

    1. leigh991

      @Robert If The NSX Is Involved It would Probably Be Within The Update Not The DLC Like How They Did With The GT 86

  97. Elconio

    Woow GT5 is still getting better and better after more than a year. The disc didn’t leave my PS3 for months and now even a few more months i guess > with this awesome DLC.

    1. DaihatsuDriver

      I stopped playing other games for a long time earlier this year because i didn’t want to take my GT5 disc out

  98. Quakebass

    As soon as I get this track, I’m gonna try to reach the supposed 501 MPH top speed of the X2010. :D I REALLY wanna find out the banking degree of the banking – it looks about 45-60 degrees, which is just INSANE. Even my classic Scalextric slot car banks don’t even go that steep! I’d love to get a Daihatsu Midget with low-stabilty tuning to it’s suspension, and laugh as it tumbles down the banking.

    I wonder how the “Electric cars run slowly without applying acceleration” will work… I don’t want my Tesla to go wandering off in a car show room!

    We need a paint shop, for paint collectors, and for DLC paints. This would allow people who downloaded the Paint DLC to purchase single or multiple DLC paints, and wouldn’t pay so much for them. Also, if a livery creator/editor was implemented, you could share your liveries, and there could be “Liveries of the week/month/year”. PD could also make livery DLC or “Seasonal liveries”, kind of like seasonal events…

    1. nick98

      “As soon as I get this track, I’m gonna try to reach the supposed 501 KMH top speed of the X2010.”
      HELL YEAH! I’M GONNA TEST MAH X2011 IN THAT TRACK TOO! soz for all caps, it’s simply overreacting agreeing! if you don’t get it, it’s just that i’m too excited!

  99. FishyJuice

    This is fantastic. I don’t want the Aventador, but the Leaf, VW 1200 and especially the XJR-9 is an absolutely fantastic car. And the best part is that they “upgraded” (guess it’s actually an all new car) a standard car (sure the Beetle is in the game, but it isn’t exactly that one, is it?). That means they are open to re-model cars already featured in the game. Just fantastic news. :D

  100. cypp

    nice update

    i would love to see bmw dlc pack with new m5 and oldschool mcars, e46 premium – amazing and e30, oh myyy :-)

  101. 37kazzmark

    What about the Acura NSX Concept? I suppose it’s too early for it to be modelled, Amazing content from PD aside. Releasing the Beetle shows that they are willing to do older cars aswell, some people won’t like this but, future DLC maybe EG Civic, Supra and Nissan Pulsar GTI-R :) I’d love that.

  102. Zamado75

    The Beetle does look good, but come on! Out of all the cars in the game, they upgrade the Beetle. Next it’ll be the 2CV, whilst the Veyron still remains standard.

    1. 37kazzmark

      Thats not an upgraded beetle, the standard beetle in the game is one of the first ones every made, while that DLC one is more of the famous one.

    2. MadmuppGT

      Which could very well be the case for the Veyron, we could have the standard car being…err standard, while the Super Sport should come in a DLC pack soon no doubt!

  103. HeXoSKEL3t0n

    Would be nice to have a lightweight car pack… with newer caterhams, ariel atom v8 or mugen, ktm x-bow and the radical.Another exige v6 would also be nice perhaps?

  104. Toyinster

    Great news, really looking forward to this pack (I haven’t used all the toys in the last one yet).
    Great cars, Lambo and Aston! I always wondered why Aston Martin were not better represented in GT5 with the likes of the DBS, DBRS and Vantage with its race cousins.

    Where’s the NSX Concept?

    One other thing: Mini Countryman?

  105. SavageEvil

    I still think that PD should allow the TGTT airstrip and the RedBull airstrip to be used as drag strips as well. This looks like good DLC, I didn’t get the second pack because I have no need of those cars yet. But I want the test course though.

  106. MaStAxKiiLLa

    If GT5 would of had all this things before it was released, it would of destroyed forza on rating. I play both but i love my GT5 :)

    1. topdrive

      I think I will have to buy an X360 and FM4 just to look at the Fiat Coupe (new Jalopnik car pack) in Autovista..

    2. topdrive

      God damn! Really? Still it would be a blast to take a nice drive in that sexy thing! :) Had one (16vt) for a couple of years, loved it, going to buy another one (20vt) as soon as by budget will allow it ;).

    3. hardvibes

      yep….there are 20-24 cars in autovista.
      Before the game came out I thought all cars were going to have autovista. This is just a let down.

    4. MadmuppGT

      I have the Fiat Coupe turbo in GT5… sure its a standard but you still get all the fun of the fair by driving the baby Ferrari… I was going to buy one a few years ago until my brain screamed at me about the reliability issues :(

      I got a 7th gen Toyota Celica instead in red… probably the closest I could get to a Ferrari, which is sad :(

    5. topdrive

      MadmuppGT, the 20 valve versions are really reliable! That Delta engine (16 valve) was terrible because of to low oil pressure (issues occur when driving with low oil temp or low on oil). When driving the car hard it could cause defects to crankshaft bearing, besides that all is great! :)

  107. Zamado75

    ^^Forgot to add, it’s really good they are A) Premium and B) Available as an Update and not DLC.

    Now, PD, let me change the wheels on my Veyron, so I can paint them orange. (SuperSport!)

    1. Chad D.

      @ttfn at this point in time, no, you can’t, which isn’t the end of the world. The rims on the veyron aren’t as bad as some other cars, it just keeps you from making your car, different. Oh well, I don’t use the veyron much anymore.

  108. GTP_Versatile

    Don’t you guys get it!?!?! PD is LISTENING TO US! As many people said they wanted somewhat of a “Test Course” and the infamous “Aventador” We’re getting it! YOU GUYS ROCK!

  109. zlays

    Jaguar XJR-9 LM Racecar 1988 premium :)))) now bring other racing machines to premium and we will be so freaking happy :)
    Bentley Speed 8 premium,R8 Team Playstation prems,Sauber Merc C9 prems,CLK-LM prems…

  110. HKS racer

    LAMBORGHINI AVENTADOR PREVIEW JUST AFTER RFACTOR 2 BETA RELEASE.
    I can’t say they didn’t learn how to marketing their stuff
    not many people was expecting this

  111. Mattycakes

    I…I…dear god I can’t form a sentence after this news. The news about the Lamborghini took my breath away. The news about the Aston made my head explode. And the jag is the cherry on top. I know it’s not official yet, but I’m just as excited as I was for 2.0.

  112. arsenal1992

    A new Aston and Lambo! I love u PD!
    Hopefully they will give the premium treatment to more standard Lmps, classics and supercars:).
    I wonder if this will be on the gt5 XL edition?!

    I’m still hoping for more photomode locations though.

    1. FdkVeilside

      i know, i was saying how GT is getting past the licenses that prevented them from having Ferrari (Microsoft) and the Aventador(NFS Exclusive) licences

  113. Miklad

    Wowsers – great news. This game just gets better.

    Could it be that PD actually READ this forum? Thanks if you do!

  114. Dazmeister22

    I like the sound of this DLC. The last one was a bit disappointing in my opinion.I’m looking forward to the Aventador & Aston Martin but mostly the Jaguar XJR-9. I just hope it handles better and is faster than the standard one that is already in the game, which is one of the slowest Grp C/Lmp cars, if real world racing were anything to go by, it should be one of the fastest Grp C’s in the game.

  115. ohnoitsmeagain

    Afew of the cars look good, glad to see another aston, keep up the brilliant work PD ;)
    But is there any word if black screen problems are going to be fixed? seems worse then ever, very frustrating v2.02 :(
    Thank you for the tyre wear tho, been able to tweak my style around it, being smooth pays off ;D

    1. Lambofanghini

      If you’re talking about the logo screen then you’re going to have to use the unplug ethernet or sign out trick until they fix it. I know, it does kinda suck but GT5 usually signs me back in automatically once I am on my way. Woot, new content. Bring on the new new. :)

    1. Lambofanghini

      Here’s hoping that 71 Camaro that last years GT Awards Best In Show will make an appearance in GT5 soon. Trust me, more classic muscle is comming.

  116. GTi_16v

    Amazing news if it’s all legit :) shame that the leaf isn’t the touring car version I saw at goodwood in 2011 as tbh that look mean as f#ck

  117. Crowood

    Has it begun?

    Are those really 2 standardcars that became premium? (Beetle/Jag)

    Great times and i HOPE the Lambo and Aston got propper engine + exhaust sounds =)

  118. Stephanos82

    Did you notice the “Max G-Force” tab. Are they actually giving us a place to run skid pad tests? Because if they are, they we can finally find out the true tire correspondents for each car by taking the closest from real skid pad tests! It will make the work of svc_calan (I think) the guy who created the GT5 tire calculator, much much easier and the calculator will be way more objective.
    PD is moving at the right direction. It’s time for my other loved one F4 to step aside and let me return to my 1st love the GT5! :)

    1. FdkVeilside

      from what im guessing that second green figure 8 button beside the standard start race-like button is probably the skid pad we can use with that track

  119. avgtuner

    Did anybody notice the “Speed Test” where it said “0-400 m”. We may finally get an official drag track that we can use. And an actual track where we can truly test the top speed of all our cars. If this track is for real, we will finally have all of what GT5 should have came with when it first came out. Too bad we will have to pay extra for something we should of already had. Every other GT game came with everything they were supposed to have. I understand it wasn’t finished, but why do we have to pay extra to get everything the game was supposed to have to begin with? I am more so talking about the track that is going to have our Acceleration and Top Speed Runs held on it. The new cars should still be purchaseable DLC as the cars are new in real life too.

    1. wavetool

      It is for me.

      …And by the looks of it, for a majority of excited GTPlanet posters as well!

      Too bad you can’t be excited for the the new content.

    2. TokoTurismo

      I’ll respect peoples opinions, but I’ll disrespect their attitude. Loonycrazyone, smarten up and quit pretending to dislike and complain.

  120. Chad D.

    Wait……….what’s that figure 8 symbol next to the drive symbol on the left of the first screen? 0_0 demolition derby? Top gear Test Track-esc? What could it be?

  121. Chad D.

    “……………….no………..words………..should of sent……………..a poet…………” -Peter Griffin

    lol, The Aventador, a new track, plus 4 new premiums (AND A BEETLE! I know most people could care less about the beetle, but I love that thing [Thanks alot Disney, you and your Herbie films -_-, lol]) I hope this becomes available within the month. :D

  122. Master_gamer438

    Whats with DLC? I dont think we should pay for something that should have been released with the game…SMH.

    1. TokoTurismo

      Tell that to the November Speed Pack for forza 4. Think before you moan, like always… You should be thanking Space Empire mainly.

  123. GT6mebe

    OH HELL YESSSSS
    ASTON MARTIN VANTAGE
    LAMBORGHINI AVENTADOR
    JAGUAR XRJ9 LM CAR
    AND a nissan but its not a GTR

    Tap yourself on the backs PD you are fricking the best racing developer ever
    Route X looks amazing.

    1. Lambofanghini

      Gotta remember, there were a lot of undisclosed changes with the 2.02 update that were discovered by us fans and listed here on GTPlanet, so there is sure to be more to this update. We’ll just have to wait and see. Now bring on the new new.

    2. NJ72

      i’d like them to bring back the ‘used rims’ from GT4… i liked cutting around in a ford with audi rims on or what-have-you, there are some awesome rims that have already been modelled on premium cars that we could surely put on others?

  124. ADDiCT3D_2_BASs

    ahhhhhhhhhhhh the V12 and the bug, gotta make a herbie lol

    Can we have some more hot hatches soon as well

    Focus RS
    Mazda 3 MPS( A must have)
    Megane RS
    Seat Cupra R etc…

    M1 Beemer
    M3 e36

  125. marktyper

    AHAHAHA GOOD WORK PD and KAZ as always!!! I know my comment could be read but in the same time, my comment could just be ignored but since we’re now playing our “dream game” in it’s 3rd DLC pack, I would like to consider some of the cars that I know will be a potential for GT Fans…

    Mercedes Benz C63 AMG Black Edition Coupe
    Spoon Civic Ek9 (K20 swap)
    J’s Racing cars ?….
    Ferrari 599 GTO
    Mugen Civic RR

    What else? Yknow something worth it for European, American, or Japanese fans :) THANKS!!!

    VIVA GranTurismo!

    1. Flaco13

      Ugh, I see so many posts in here u guys keep sayin the same thing. The way I see it PD is doin what they can to fix every single problem! Should be thankful 4 that!
      Now should have been this should have been that…
      They didnt invent a time machine yet, tho. So why dont you just get over it???

  126. Quakebass

    Well, so much for “won’t be making any standard cars premium”!

    And also, whats happening with the NSX Concept? I mean, they have it modeled in a promotional video, but it isn’t listed on the 2.03 update or DLC car list…

    1. ADDiCT3D_2_BASs

      This isnt confirmed so if you give it chance to be confirmed you might find the NSX is in the update :)

  127. blah blah blah

    No GT R :O but will definatly be checking this.out. Looks like a machine test style thing from GT3 if I’m not mistaken.

  128. JRayWRX

    So, based of the 2 screenshots of “Route X”, can we assume its both dynamic time and weather? Second pic looks like it’s night with some weather rolling in.

  129. GT Pro

    About time. :)

    However, it would be even better if it were like GT5P where online records for each individual car/track combo is made available.

  130. Ben78

    The car I want to drive the most with the interior view is the Volkswagen 1200 1966.

    And Route X will be where I’ll spend all my time now. Goodbye online ! ;-)

    1. Ben Rogue

      That will probably end up like the FT-86, being added in the update. Its probably because PD gets paid to make the car for promo purposes so its added in game updates as the marketing alone would pay for itself.

  131. Guimengo

    I love the bit with the Jaguar XJR-9 Prototype! I of course would prefer to see Polyphony convert those Prototype cars in the game from Standard to Premium but that’s a start.

    1. Carlos Fandango

      No to that Sagaris and the GT90, yes to the XJR-15. There are so many great cars in existence that it seems a shame to regurgitate old concept cars.

    2. Nuuj

      I’ve been waiting to see a XJR-15 in GT, it’s one of the most beautiful and well built machines Jaguar ever created, and extremely underrated–which is why I still think it will show eventually, PD likes to include vehicles that share those qualities..

  132. iridegravity

    Can I just get the Aventador for a buck please? Feels like I am paying to have my standards upgraded. Besides the leaf, which no one cares about, the Lambo’s the only thing not in the game already more or less? What’s up with that? Scirocco was the only car I cared about in the last offering so I skipped that one like I will this one. Will miss the Lambo though :(

    1. TheeFrogmanlego

      -.- yea man lets cut out half the Ferrari’s too… and all the Subaru’s and evo’s any car that has anything remotely similar … oh and we dont want the track we already have an oval kaz..

    2. NJ72

      Are you being a muppet? the jag is the ONLY car that is already in the game from this update…

      V12 vantage is new (there is only the old scabby one which is standard)
      Mini Countryman is new (im not overly fussed by it, but it is still new)
      Leaf is new (obviously)
      Beetle is new (We had an older version with a smaller engine in it, so this still counts as a fresh car)

      so in actual fact you’re full of rubbish… just because you dont like them doesnt mean they aren’t new

    1. Austin864

      I’m sure Yamauchi will forgive you in time.

      Yamauchi, we all appreciate the hard work you put in to GT5. Thank you so much.

  133. BanditRa101801

    I am happy that this is going to be the next DLC and hope the official announcement is soon. But, if the Jaguar XJR-9 is going to become premium, should/will the standard version be left alone or should/will it be replaced with the premium once the pack is downloaded?

  134. BWX

    Hey Kaz / PD, thanks for cars and tracks, now can you make an extended A-Spec DLC that I WILL BUY, so we can make use of all these DLC cars and tracks? How hard could it be to extend the XP level to 80, the cr level to 40 million, and make a big fat list of off-line A-Spec races and championships to ust the new DLC with? It would be easier than making a car or track, and I’ll pay you just as much for it!

    1. iridegravity

      People would be throwing their money at PD/Sony if they ever get this figured out. How about a tire model to go with them that matches the endurance event length’s. I would pay for those implementations. We have plenty of cars and tracks. Its the events to compete in them that are lacking.

    2. Flaco13

      +1 I think Tocca TCC had something like that! I enjoyed setting up a startin grid that I find interesting, making sure the cars match and all that. Then u would only have to be able to set each AI drivers lvl ( O – 40 maby?) and create whole championships. That would keep me busy till GT6 Release!

  135. LR-MR-Cole

    Yes, this is good. I like the Lambo LP700 and I know we could use more but I would rather have the v12 Vantage if not both. But I would love to have both

    1. Nuuj

      I’m just happy Aston Martin is getting a little attention, 1 premium was kind of annoying and sad, the Aventador shocked me–I wonder if we’ll see a Reventón before long though..

  136. Witblitz_ZN

    PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE

    make the BMW 1M !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  137. terminator363

    I’m slightly disappointed in the fact it’s another oval. I’m wishing for more real tracks, not ovals and SSR7s to add quantity to the game.

    Quality > Quantity.

    1. ttfn

      how many other ovals are there in GT5? none, so theres nothing to complain about…….you want curves make your own tracks like i did

    2. TokoTurismo

      ttfn does have a point. Theres something called “Course Maker” if you for gotten. This track is perfect for drag racing, and with the new cars even better.

    3. GT6mebe

      have you seen the track its not an oval its a massive track with loads of roads form what I see with an open space too….like a mini city and test grounds.

  138. v13esim

    YES NEW AVENTADOR just the car I’ve been waiting for since Lamborghini revealed it. Just need a premium supra, ridiculous supra, and ebisu and this game is perfect for me.

  139. PorkyTheRacer

    I’m excited for the 66 volkswagon and the v12 vantage the lamb is cool but Italian sports cars aren’t my forte

  140. TokoTurismo

    My first time behind the wheel of the Aventador in the brand new track. :’) Sniff, I’m so happy, Thank you so much Kaz and PD. :D They were listening to us all, so very happy. I can’t believe I’m gonna say this, but TAKE THAT FORZA. DX I’m better now. :)

  141. Ben Rogue

    OMG! OMG! OMG! Lambo!

    Speed test circuit looks fun, I hope they bring back a few more classic tracks with a bit of a refresh!
    Next DLC cars should be the Focus RS and new Mustang models, as well as a few other facelift models. It would be easy work, only a few days of modelling and just a slight update to physics. Maybe a few more new cars from Detroit Auto Show, like the new Mondeo/Fusion. GT5 needs more beautiful Fords and maybe some more British sports cars; TVR’s, Jags and Aston Martins!

    1. Flaco13

      2012 Vauxhall Astra GTC VXR alongside with the Focus RS would be nice… I see a Race of the latest Hatches chasing or beeing chased by Golf R’s and Scirrocos !

  142. richiem2282

    Elbow of the top ropes to Forza, 14 months on and STILL THE DADDY!!!! Ask me again why I own a PS3 and not a crapbox??? GT5, THE ALWAYS EVOLVING SIMULATOR ….

    1. Lambofanghini

      Now now, I have a crapbox, for Halo, Gears etc. Dont knock it so hard cause it’s good for something, but PS3 is the king. Way to go PD.

    2. MaStAxKiiLLa

      I have a crapbox too. I also play forza but the only thing it has good is car sound everything else SUCK! GT5 made forza…… King GT5 :)

    3. MyFavoriteGame

      its good for a lil more than that now isn’t it?….I mean where else can I put Huey and Riley Freeman on my 370z with Grandad on the hood? lol….I wont know much about the sound tho, since i hardly ever drive in Forza 4, just design

    4. jah24car

      Well mate i own the Xbox and it isn’t that bad with some features both have its ups and downs, but I’M SO HAPPY GT5 GETS A ADVENTADOR SO NOW I CAN DO SOME DAYTONA TESTING WITH IT AND PHOTOMODE WITH STIG!!!

  143. themartlab

    Holy cow! The Nissan Leaf! omg i’m so stoked. Not but since there’s more, it’s okay but I think I will keep my Leaf 0/0/0 so it will keep a good resale value.

    I’m glad i still have a 50$ psn card. Plus the voucher i will have with gt5 xl.

  144. NEPALII

    Man, am I dreaming? PD sure knows how to get people hyped up. NSX’s trailer yesterday and now this info today. :)
    One thing is puzzling me, though, is the Jaguar XJR-9. This car is already in the game so why pay for it? Yes it’s being converted from Standard to Premium but we need to pay for that? Not complaining, but I don’t see why we paying for a Standard to Premium upgrade.

  145. paracefan2002

    YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HELL YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  146. Andy Voong

    Look out world, Herbie is making a comeback! Eat your heart out Nascar. I’m going to my local 7-Elven, to purchase a brand new PSN card and wait till the day comes :D.

    1. MadmuppGT

      If the game had a livery editor how many Herbies would be knocking about? haha

      I’d have one thats for sure

    2. iLex

      One more beetle and they need to get engine swaps in the game :D We can’t get a Porsche engine, but I’m sure RUF can provide some powerrrrr.

    3. jah24car

      If it was like Forza with livery editor I’D DO SUCH A THING, but me sad it don’t I mean seriously I’d recreate Kyle Busch’s M&Ms Pretzel car for the Camry body if GT5 had the livery thing forza does BUT I CAN DREAM RIGHT

  147. xx666Kris666xx

    There can never be enough GT-R’s in GT

    Can’t wait for new DLC even if there aren’t any new GT-R’s been watching this story all day…..

    Very interested to see if it’s an oval or a triangle kinda shaped track… Just give it too us now FFS it’s clearly done, get your asses onto the next lot and we will all pay for that too more tracks more tracks more tracks…

    w000t

    1. ttfn

      i got mine at midnight at launch and my father got me a logitech wheel too!!!! and yeah it keeps getting better and better….it just ROCKS!!!!

    1. MadmuppGT

      Shes a beaut, Youre lucky to have owned one, Ive always had a soft spot for them, and would get one myself if the decent ones didnt cost more than a Porsche and the rest are rusted death traps :(

  148. barkeep

    Yes!! The Aventador!! Route X is going to be insane, now that we can legitimately max out the cars top speed in virtually a straight line, and of course, 0-60 tests, and 1/4 mile drag race.

    Keep these DLC packs coming! :D

    1. Blackex99

      You never lied there’s always somebody complaining and crying.I say go play Forza and stay the hell off GT Planet.

    1. recca

      i htink the best way to find that out is to actually test drive it…gt probably won’t give you the most accurate reason

    2. Big Ron

      You will not find out in GT5, why everybody drives a Leaf. If you tested other electric cars in the game, you should know, that they are slow, boring and ugly and don´t submit any feeling of exitement.

    3. TokoTurismo

      @BIG RON Stop trying to ruin everyones liking to the Leaf. Like, why would you want to waste your energy on hating one car like back off dude NOT COOL!

  149. eminembeastfan2

    F**K yes i can’t wait for more dlc already got the 2 dlcs and now a 3rd 1 is coming out and i am getting the 3rd one so 3 pack dlc that i bought from gran turismo :D can’t wait for this 7 more days!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    1. eminembeastfan2

      FASTER DAY GO BY FASTER SO I CAN BUY ME MY DLC!!!! I WANT IT NEW TRACK :D AND NEW CARS I DON’t want the leaf though but also no race car :P except the jaguar

    2. MadmuppGT

      While the leaf isnt the stand out car of the pack its no doubt an important car… Its a proper useable electric car, possibly the first one that people wouldnt mind being seen in either!

      Plus I think its nice to let the wee chap share the lime light with some truely big guns and famous names.

      Let it have its moment in the sun….

      …. Oh god, I’m already bonding with the damned Nissan Leaf, HELP ME!

    3. NJ72

      as long as i can make it go EXTREMELY fast then i dont mind the leaf… although im wondering if it has a tweaked battery life because the production leaf only has the power to do about 75 miles under cruising conditions…

    4. Flaco13

      In the US people aren’t allowed to go faster than those 75mph, as far as I know? So at least as 4 the average citizens no one complains about it. Except 4 the minority of crazy a## car enthusiasts and racing fanatics like us, 75mph isn’ that bad! jk

      But what always makes me laugh is when I host an online lobby ( with low pp) n they come in instantly complaining about the low pp, now after a race or 2 some keep complainin so I higher it to say 600, THOSE whining loudest about how slow it is are the 1s who wander off track in the very 1st curve! I love when that happens, it makes me wanna open xmb menu and msg them (but I dont do, I’m nice!) And I must think about an old adv. slogan by a Tyre Brand saying: “Power is nothing without control”!

  150. PS3LUV3R

    I didn’t even read it. I saw the Aventador.

    Thank you a million PD. You guys really listen to what we want. So many updates and content!

    I LOVE YOU PD!

  151. ttfn

    to quote Clarkson……”Eat my exhaust fumes Forza!!!!”

    This is awesome news…..cant wait till next week now!!!!

  152. Snaeper

    I think that’s a great and varied list of cars.

    Lets remember that this is GT and GT is as much a textbook as it is a game… so this is the kind of list we should expect. Good job PD, I’m a happy customer for sure!

  153. X-TeNDeR

    So, basically this “Route X” in an Online flavor is a Drag Strip?
    Oh I sure hope so! (Let the tweaking BEGIN).

  154. Quakebass

    I DID NOT expect DLC so soon… I REALLY hope the “January 18th” release date isn’t a typo. I wonder what the price of the DLC will be – I’ve got $4-$5 on my PSN account, and if its more than that, I WILL get more into it, no matter the cost!

    …Oh yeah, and AVENTADOOOOOOORRRRRR!!!!!!!

    1. Big Ron

      I think, the car package will be 5$/€ and the track could be around 3$/€. How much was Spa-DLC standalone? Expect the same price.

  155. blue night

    Aventador and XJR-9 makes up for the fact that PD is stupid enough to but a f#cking Leaf in this game. Anyway, those tracks and cars are the first ones that make me want to get DLC.

    1. Quakebass

      Well, I don’t mind the leaf, (although it is the most dull car added to the game so far) but I don’t think that it makes the DLC worse. And anyways, PD is heavily sponsored by Nissan. (Hence the massive amount of GTR’s and GT academy, ETC.)

    2. Big Ron

      The Mini Cooper S Countryman isn´t any better than the Leaf. We got the S Coupé-version last time, which is cool. So what the hell adds the Countryman to the game we already haven´t?

    3. TokoTurismo

      I know Big Ron, we “haven’t” gotten the Countryman yet. >:) Which I’m really happy to have see come in GT5.

    1. MadmuppGT

      I got excited by the Aventador, and gave a ooooh yes… then I saw the beetle and had a wee heart flutter and was actually more speechless with excitement.

      This DLC is going to be hard to beat by future DLC surely… its almost too good to be true

    1. BroncosXR8

      Same, and then I read further and the rest of my body exploded! haha

      Seriously though, these are the 2 updates I wanted the most, Aventador and a Test Track… and look at all those tests!!!

    1. MadmuppGT

      Tell me about it, 6 cars and that awesome track, which with the looks of it will allow drag racing and such! Brilliant, truely brilliant, plus hasnt it only been 1 month since the last DLC, what happened to every 2…. Not a complaint, just an observation

    2. PIGBOY

      The stealth Mazda 787B and Audi R10 are great too and can be bought on ebay as i have.the mazda makes more power and the R10 has 50kg less.$50 for all 6 stealth cars

    3. ironbru86

      How is being charged for a premium version of a standard car that is already in the game (in this case the Jaguar XJR – 9 LM Racecar 1988) a good thing when the car (like all the cars) should have been premuim in the first place?

    4. Doober

      @madmuupGT well actually they said roughly every two months. so perhaps this could have been an exception to general 2 month dlc. This is still good news

    1. Lambofanghini

      What’s my signon say? Yes I can has be a Lambo fan. Had a hunch this car would be added soon and a test track is comming too???!!! PD is officially the greatest developer ever. Way to keep us in the drivers seat PD. :)

  156. TokoTurismo

    I fully believed Space Empire and he was completely right. :D Thank you so much my friend. :) You’re the best ever. ;)

    1. N99GT

      i would mind as much if it was the leaf nismo rc!!! but out of those i would only use the lambo, the aston and the jaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaag! the others….well really?!

      cant we just have a ‘pix and mix’ selection with multibuy discounts?!

    2. Foxiol

      They put the Nissan Leaf because it is the car of the year in Japan. “Japan’s 2011-2012 “Car of the Year””

    3. TokoTurismo

      @Foxiol Now that is understandable. :) Thank you buddy. ;) The whiners towards the car should get that through their thick heads. lol

  157. LogiForce

    I wish they would come up with a proper implementation of tire grip. Since the last update it sucks even more then before. I would like to see something along the lines of GTR Evolution for example.

    Ah well… as long as they keep working on it.

    1. caasimun_18

      you know that moment in anime when the character smiles soo hard and a love heart is drawn on the tongue…..yeah thats me right now

    2. DaihatsuDriver

      Sweet Heyzeus, I can’t wait to go searching for all the little changes that PD doesn’t tell anyone about and all the new bugs from things they break XD

      The new cars are awesome by the way.

    3. Big Ron

      How, sweet. This three little chaps over me are not answering to the post of LogiForce. They just positioned to be on top of this page….oh man.

    4. pasigiri

      THE NEW DLC INCLUDES A VENT AND A DOOR?????? PD, quit pulling my leg.

      Seriously, I am COMPLETELY stoked about the Lambo Aventador. The Aston Martin V12 Vantage is awesome too. The new is icing on the cake. As for the NSX Concept, will we be getting that too or is that something later?

    5. Eric W

      I’m thrilled to see the Aventador, Vantage, and Jaguar XJR-9 LM Racecar but I really wish that PD would just release a separate Supercar pack and Race car pack instead of a mixed bag.

    6. TheBuG

      Gt5 is rewarding like minecraft is rewarding =) you are pleased with the original game but the creators just keep pumping out new stuff and updates. You might think “why isnt this included allready in the game? seems like a unfinished game to me”. I dont care if its unfinished as long as its playable and when you get new stuff every month its so much more fun. whats next month? Ariel atom v6 500 hk premium? =D

      What PD should do is download.. i mean buy the hole top gear uk series and make all the cars they have on their leaderboard into premium and the reasonably priced car for top gear test track x)

      Love updates! Thanks for sweet site Jordan =)

    7. JBanton

      Definitely buying this when it releases in the UK, this game has entertained me for countless hours and I will happily support PD. I shall thoroughly enjoys driftint the V12 Vantage.
