Developer Polyphony Digital’s Gran Turismo racing simulator series has always been known to include a massive amount of cars from all corners of the automotive industry, and it looks like Gran Turismo 7 is no exception when it hits PS4 and PS5 next year. According to Polyphony, the upcoming game will include over 400 cars.
PlayStation recently posted on social media that Gran Turismo 7 would include over 400 cars “including fascinating models from automotive history.” The clip posted with the announcement provided a closer look at many of the unique vehicles from generations of the automotive industry, making it a car collector’s dream come true.

While 400 cars may seem plentiful, many genre competitors such as Forza Motorsport and Forza Horizon boast an equally impressive amount of vehicles in their franchises too. However, Gran Turismo 7 seems to be catering more towards the die-hard car enthusiast, collecting vehicles from many eras across the automotive industry’s extensive history.
Unlike Forza Horizon 5 which is an open-world arcade racer, Gran Turismo 7 is one purely for the racing simulation fans, largely focusing on visual fidelity and closed-circuit tracks over large sandboxes.
Gran Turismo 7 will make the seventh mainline instalment in the series since Gran Turismo 6, which launched all the way back at the end of the PS3’s life cycle. The last generation, PS4 players were treated to Gran Turismo Sport, a spin-off from the mainline series that put an emphasis on competitive online multiplayer. However, Gran Turismo 7 promises to be a balance of both the single-player and online elements. We’ll find out just how well they integrate this when the full game launches on 4 March 2022 for PS4 and PS5.
