You can now drive the Toyota GR 86 in Gran Turismo

By topgear, 09 July 2021

We’re yet to drive Toyota’s new GR 86, and anticipation is building greatly for the brilliant GT86’s successor. It now looks as though our first experience behind the wheel may happen digitally, though, because Gran Turismo has announced a free July update that adds Toyota’s new sports car into the game.

Yep, having introduced the GR Yaris through an update back in November last year, GT Sport has been quick to scan in the GR 86 too. Looks good in pixel form, no?

The 86 is literally all you’re getting from this latest update – there’s no new circuits or any other changes – but it’s nice to see Gran Turismo Sport hasn’t been forgotten about whilst the next instalment is delayed. 

The all-new Gran Turismo is now scheduled for a 2022 release date on PlayStation 5. More as we have it…
