A new piece of content has been confirmed for Gran Turismo 6's forthcoming 'Ayrton Senna Tribute' update: the Brazilian racing driver's Formula Three racing car.
Featured for the first time in an 'Ayrton Senna Tribute' preview trailer, the single seater in question is the same one in which Senna won his first and only British Formula Three Championship title in 1983 in his debut season, before being signed on by Toleman to compete in Formula One the following year.
The Toyota-powered, Ralt-designed Formula Three car will be accompanied in the Ayrton Senna Tribute update with Senna's DAP Racing Kart and Lotus 97T Formula One car, along with new versions of Monza and Brands Hatch which resemble the circuits as they were in the 1980s.
An analysis of the above trailer's in-game footage doesn't appear to showcase either of these two new locations, however, nor is there any suggestion that other tracks will be included in the Ayrton Senna Tribute update.
Gran Turismo 6 players will be able to exclusivley access this commemorative content in Gran Turismo 6, when the update is released in just under a week's time on May 27th.
I'm looking forward to doing some time trials with the content in this, why would you get rid off your ps3?
Great to see this partnership with Polyphony working out.
Just a shame I no longer have a PS3 to play this content with. :(
Those tyres on the Lotus are really not suited to the extremely wet track, lol.
Surely SMS can kit it out with some wet weather rubber?
I'll look forward to it and for once I'm not bothered wether its DLC or not because in terms of racing sims, Assetto Corsa is definitely more friendly on your pocket - free multiplayer etc. I hope that doesn't change when it leaves early access.
Its nice to see that they're not using lens flare, it really annoys me when its used in cockpit view because cockpit view is often for a more realistic driving experience yet it can be ruined by lens flare which is an effect only present on lenses (unsurprisingly). *ehem* Next Car Game *ehem*.
Yes this certainly has huge potential and mixing bikes with cars could be a good thing in terms of investment. Bike games have often been a mixed bag in terms of reception, so perhaps we'll see some bikes in GT7 and then if that works out, a full blown Tourist Trophy 2 further down the line.
I'm not going to get my hopes up because there have been too many rumors for far to long. But after GT6 the only thing that would make me buy another GT title would be the addition of bikes (and a good selection of those at that).
In regards to Tourist Trophy, that game still holds up today. Not perfect (bikes a tad to floatly) but over all it gave me the closest sense of how it feels to...
