Gran Turismo 6 1.07 Update Brings BMW Vision GT Concept Car

Polyphony Digital has released version 1.07 of Gran Turismo 6, bringing a new car to the PS3 racing title. The car is a rather special one though: The “BMW Vision Gran Turismo” is a compact road racer engineered specifically for GT6. Harkening back to BMW’s 1970’s touring car pedigree, the Vision GT blends hallmark BMW design with meticulous precision, to create an ultimate driving experience. A 3.0L twin-turbo I6 engine generates 541 horsepower, and is connected to a 6-speed sequential gearbox.

The 1.07 update also includes some minor updates to the online multiplayer, as well as the replay interface. For a full list of updates, check out the changelog below.
