If you’re anything like us, you’ll have spent much of this week poring over the finer details of everything coming out of PlayStation’s special Gran Turismo 7 State of Play. We certainly have, and you can find out everything we know to date in our Ultimate Guide to Gran Turismo 7.
However, one of the key things revealed during the event was an almost complete car list for day one — or at least it was if you were looking closely enough!
We’ve been hearing about GT7’s launch day car list for a little while, with the most recent figure being 428 cars — as shown in a Behind the Scenes video on an in-game screen. With State of Play divulging more than 400 cars from the list, we’re now at roughly 420 vehicles accounted for.
Of those, the overwhelming majority are coming straight from Gran Turismo Sport, which means 338 cars migrating over (although the Fittipaldi EF7 is curiously absent right now). Thus far we’ve learned the identities of another 84, including some that are entirely new to the series and some that make a return after being absent from Sport.
The All-New Cars
Just about 60% of the cars added to GT7 are brand-new to the series, with a mixture of derivatives of familiar models and some that have simply never been seen in a GT game in any form.
Perhaps the most obvious of these are the three new Vision Gran Turismo cars — with a fourth model we’ll touch on later. Lamborghini’s “Lambo V12” made its debut at the 2019 FIA World Finals in Monaco, but has had to wait more than two years to join the game, and it’ll land alongside Porsche’s new Vision GT car and the updated SV version of the Jaguar VGT.
In fact Porsche has the most brand-new cars of any manufacturer, largely by virtue of never having been in GT before Sport. Included in its nine newcomers are two of its greatest ever road cars — the 911 GT1 Street Version, and the Carrera GT — along with classics like the 550 Spyder, 356 hardtop, and 917K race car.
There’s space for a couple of Pebble Beach Gran Turismo Award winners too. The Ferrari 500 Mondial won the competition in 2012, so it’s been waiting for a decade to appear, while the Mercedes Benz S Barker Tourer hits GT7 after just over four years. Oddly, another Pebble Beach car, the overall 2008 champion Alfa Romeo 8C 2900B Touring Berlinetta, looks to be joining them, rather than the 2019 GT Award-winning 8C 2300 Zagato.
Along with the Ferrari 500 there’s a slew of new models from Maranello, including the F8 Tributo, F12berlinetta, and the classic Testarossa. The FXX K will also make its debut, upgrading on the FXX which appeared in GT6.
Among the most curious additions to our eyes are “touring car” variants of the Honda Civic EK Type R, the Nissan Silvia S15, and the Suzuki Swift. These ready-made racers are similar to the Mazda Roadster Touring Car, but given the extensive tuning on offer in GT7 — which includes widebody and aero mods — we’re not quite sure how they’ll fit in just yet.
It wouldn’t be a GT game without historic curios, and there’s some new ones coming in. They include the Willys MB — the classic World War II “jeep” — the special order Nissan Fairlady Z Z432, De Tomaso Mangusta, two versions of the 3.0 CSL (with the 3.0 and 3.2 engines), and the pocket rocket Abarth 695.
Classic race car enthusiasts might be sated by the Alpine A220 and the Mercedes W194 300SL, while those looking for track day toys need only settle on the UK section of Brand Central, where BAC and Radical both make their GT series debuts with the Mono and SR3 respectively.
If you like your classic GT games, then the addition of some more ordinary fare to tweak will come as good news. The Ford Focus RS Mk3, current-gen Honda Civic Type R, updated Subaru BRZ STI, Suzuki Swift Sport 2017, Mazda RX-8 Spirit R, and Mk5 Volkswagen Polo GTI all make their first GT appearances.
One question mark at the moment hangs over the Genesis brand, which is also set to make its debut as the standalong marque rather than the Hyundai sub-brand. After the initial announcement, these three cars — a Gr.4, a Gr.3, and a Vision GT car — haven’t been seen in official GT7 media, and may not make launch day.

The Returning New Cars
Just over 30 vehicles are coming back from previous GT games having skipped out Gran Turismo Sport, and they do include some old favorites and versatile rides.
We obviously can’t start anywhere else but the Castrol Tom’s Supra. It’s an iconic car from the series, strangely absent from Sport, considering that it’s a racing car, but thankfully back for GT7 — along with the Alfa Romeo 155 Touring Car and Nissan Pennzoil GT-R.
These classic racers will be joined, or rather rejoined, by the Mercedes CLK-LM, the BMW-branded McLaren F1 GTR, the GT4 cover car version of the Ford GT LM Race Car, the flying fridge Chaparral 2J, and a rallying great in the shape of the Peugeot 205 T16 Evolution.
Tuner favorite Amuse returns with the tweaked 350Z from previous titles joining the S2000 GT1 which was curiously under the GT brand in Sport. There’s also the return of the Shuichi Shigeno Edition Sprinter Trueno, which packs considerably more firepower than its ordinary AE86 sibling.
We know the watching meme fans won’t have missed the reappearance of the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution V, and it’ll be joined by the Evo VI with which you could complete pretty much half of Gran Turismo 6.
There’s plenty of regular cars in there too, with the VW Scirocco R, Nissan 370Z, and Nissan Silvia S15 and SilEighty returning. And of course no GT game would be complete without different model years of similar cars, so a younger Civic EK Type R and an older Integra Type R are welcome returnees too!
