‘Gran Turismo Sport’ has added the Toyota GR86 to its lineup

Just this week, the Playstation-exclusive racing powerhouse “Gran Turismo Sport” has pushed its 1.66 update live. It’s a free update that includes an exciting new addition for fans: The Toyota GR86. You can read about the real-life GR86 right here, but in general, if you’re familiar with the Subaru BRZ, you probably have a pretty good idea of what to expect with this car. The exciting thing about its inclusion in “GT Sport” is that the GR86 isn’t due to go on sale until the end of this year, which means that if you’re a “Gran Turismo” player, you’ll have the opportunity to “drive” the car before anyone else. It looks pretty great in-game, so if you’re already a “GT” player, make sure you snag the update as soon as you can. If you’re not, you can check it out in the video below.
