It will be available at the Legend Cars dealers on July 29.
This is also where you’ll find the Skyline, although it will appear as an AI car in GR3 races and you can even borrow it Current Gr.3 Daily Race very. It should come as no surprise that this beast appears in the Gr.3 category, as it packs over 550hp and doesn’t weigh a ton. a fan favorite from Grand Touring 2 Days, it’s been over 20 years since we last saw the R30 SSS in a new GT game.

Update 1.19 Scapes
Two new Scapes locations have been included in the 1.19 update, adding another 45 locations to photograph your vehicles, although one of them is actually pretty awkward.
The first is Shikoku, the smallest of the four islands that make up Japan, which sits in a gulf formed by Honshu Island to the north and east, and Kyushu to the west.
Famous for its 88-temple shrine, Shikoku has only 12 original palaces remaining in Japan, three of which appear as landmarks. All four of the island’s prefectures – Ehime, Kagawa, Kochi and Tokushima – feature numerous landscape shots and an oddly high number of submersible bridges.
The other scapes location is the first one which is not strictly real. Possibly inspired by the title sponsor of the R30 Skyline Super Silhouette, Tomica Town is a model city made up of Tomica scale model cars, buildings and streets.
These places are scaled down to fit any car you put in, and it sure produces some unique images – like tilt-shift without tilting or shifting.
Update 1.19 Major Changes
There are a number of significant changes that mainly affect multiplayer, with the lobby, meeting place and sport mode all subject to improvements, as well as custom races in single player.
Importantly, players will now be able to save and load race settings in both custom race and lobby modes. This means those who drive a regular racing series, or have a particular favorite custom event, can now quickly set them up without having to go through the menus every time.
Players can save up to 50 different settings in either mode, and can name the settings with up to 32 characters. They can also be overwritten or deleted.
Plus, you can now pick up parts for garage cars at any event directly from the Race Shop quick menu, instead of having to go to a tuning shop. Various tire grades, as well as power restrictors and ballast, are available here.
Interestingly, there appears to be an update to Balance of Performance, along with new BOP settings for the tracks “High-Speed”, “Medium-Speed” and “Slow-Speed”, although this isn’t entirely clear. That’s how it’s implemented at this point.
lobbies still support GT Sport-Classic message template, allows you to quickly enter messages with varying levels of passive-aggression – or “Let’s have a clean run!” To let everyone know quickly that you are a crappy driver.
Now you will also be able to mute individual players, and this function will be invoked automatically if you use the report function.
Update 1.19 Other Changes
The update has addressed several issues and adjusted other items for general quality of life. This includes changes to milestones in My Page, shared items in the Showcase, player wishlist, and counter-steer assistance and fixes to problems with the Logitech G923 wheel.
However, one thing that hasn’t been added yet is the ability to sell cars. Players are still waiting for this much-awaited feature, which also appeared on the game’s roadmap published in march — and the game’s official store page — but will need to wait until at least the end of August.
