Gran Turismo 6 Red Bull Update Brings a New Challenge, Cars

Gran Turismo 6 has today released a free update, featuring cars and a challenge from motorsport team Red Bull Racing.

According to the Playstation Blog, there will initially be two new cars with another two more coming later, here’s what the press release says:

“Owners of GT6 will have the opportunity to select the first two of four new Red Bull cars. The Red Bull Racing Kart and Red Bull X2014 Junior will arrive in dealerships in-game via the update, while the Red Bull X2014 Standard and Fan cars can be expected to join them at a later stage. All of the new Red Bull X2014 cars have been designed for GT6 in conjunction with Infiniti Red Bull Racing’s legendary Chief Technical Officer Adrian Newey.”

President of Polyphony Digital Kazunori Yamauchi has said on this Red Bull/Polyphony deal:

“We are very grateful to Adrian Newey, Sebastian Vettel, and Infiniti Red Bull Racing for providing this special gift for Gran Turismo fans. To be taught how to drive downforce cars by the best racing driver in the world is very special, and the new Red Bull X2014 cars are another exciting addition to Gran Turismo 6. This is the latest update for the game, and there are more to come” 

Finally, Formula 1 world champion Sebastian Vettel had some high praise for the series:

“I’ve been playing Gran Turismo since I was 12, so to appear in the game myself as a mentor is great. I hope everyone enjoys the game.”

Everybody likes free updates! I haven’t heard about many people playing GT6 but I have heard that it is much better than the last entry in the series, it’s a shame that the launch of the PS4 has overshadowed this game, I have no doubt that we will be seeing another Gran Turismo pretty soon on the new console.

Let me know in the comments if you have this game, is it worth playing even though people now have their new shiny PS4?
