The Nissan GT-R Nismo sports car will "mark a significant swelling" of of Gran Turismo 6's GPS Data Logger feature, according to GTPlanet.

As stated in the article, the high performance coupe – which features the GT6-compatible NissanConnect NISMO Plus" interface system – will see the tracks you can use this feature to expand upon the three circuits currently supported.

Reportedely, Nissan has mapped Data Logger information on 178 circuits across the world, 17 of which are already featured in Gran Turismo 6 and have been listed below:

  • Ascari Race Resort
  • Autodromo Nazionale di Monza
  • Brands Hatch GP Circuit
  • Circuit de la Sarthe
  • Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps
  • Daytona International Speedway
  • Fuji Speedway
  • Indianapolis Motor Speedway
  • Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca
  • Mount Panorama Motor Racing Circuit
  • Nurburgring Nordschleife
  • Red Bull Ring
  • Silverstone
  • Suzuka Circuit
  • Tsukuba Circuit
  • Twin Wing Motegi
  • Willow Springs International Motorsports Park

Furthermore, Nissan will also allow data from Michael Krumm's record-breaking run in the Nissan GT-R Nismo at the Nurburgring Nordschleife will be made available for owners of the real car to compare themselves against. Presumably, this will also make it possible for Gran Turismo 6 players to compare their in-game times against Krumm's at some point, though no official announcements on this likelihood have been made at time of writing.

Gran Turismo 6's GPS Data Logger feature is – according to developer Polyphony Digital – "allow users to view and compare variations" in lap time telemetry data of real-life cars on real-life tracks, by "analys[ing] the data stored on a replay file". To date, only Nissan and Toyota have released cars with GT6 Data Logger compatibility.
