Game: Gran Turismo 6

Platform: PS3

Publisher: Sony Interactive Entertainment

Release Date: 05/12/2013

The latest update for Gran Turismo 6 has been released, adding the much anticipated "Ayrton Senna Tribute" content to the PS3-exclusive racing game.

Arguably the most eagerly awaited aspect of GT6 V1.08, the latest version of the game allows players to get behind the wheel of three racing cars driven by the late Ayrton Senna over the course of his career in motorsports, ranging from his humble racing kart to his championship-winning Formula Three single seater and the Lotus 97T he used to secure his first ever pole positions and race wins in Formula One.

Players will be able to acquire the three cars through the new "Ayrton Senna" category in Gran Turismo 6's in-game car dealerships, as well as through participating in a series of 'Ayrton Senna Tribute' special events.

Three new Senna racing suits for the in-game avatar to wear – the 'Ayrton Senna 1980', 'Ayrton Senna 1983' and 'Ayrton Senna 1985' – are also available for players to acquire, and accompany the 'Ayrton Senna 1988' outfit that's already available in Gran Turismo 6.

Finally, Gran Turismo 6 V1.08 marks the unexpected arrival of a new Vision Gran Turismo car in the game: Mitsubishi's Concept XR-PHEV Evolution Vision Gran Turismo, a hybrid competition car that pays tribute to Mitsubishi's links to the World Rally Championship and the Dakar Rally.

As with previous Vision Gran Turismo releases, the new Mitsubishi design study can be acquired either through the 'Vision Gran Turismo' section in Gran Turismo 6 with in-game credits, or collected for free by participating in a new Seasonal Event.
