The Mk1 GTI is Coming to Gran Tursimo Sport!

Polyphony Digital is preparing to introduce six new cars that don’t matter and the 1983 Volkswagen Mk1 Golf GTI to Gran Turismo Sport.

The update is the latest in an ongoing series that periodically introduce new vehicles to the game and that have somehow, up to this point, neglected to add the Mk1 GTI.

The meaningful car is joined by the meaningless 2017 Ford GT, Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Safety Car, the Renault Megane RS Trophy Safety Car, the slightly more interesting 2013 Toyota Crown Athlete G and Crown Athlete G Safety Car, and the 1995 Porsche 911 Carrera RS Clubsport.

All will now be able to race a new track. Another glaring omission from the GT Sport lineup, Laguna Seca now joins the track list.

Not only is Laguna Seca a great track, but it also holds a special place in Gran Turismo as the first real track to appear in the series in Gran Turismo 2. This update comes just a week after GT2’s 20th anniversary, so the timing is perhaps less than arbitrary.

The reasoning behind the timing of the GTI’s release, meanwhile, is less understandable. But let’s choose to celebrate the addition of something excellence rather than the wanton lack of it.
