A new update for Gran Turismo 5, version 2.06, has just been launched and is now available for download
The download weighs in at a hefty 475MB in size (that’s nearly half a gigabyte!), leading many to suspect it may contain a bit more than what’s outlined in the official list of changes. With Twin Ring Motegi having already been confirmed as part of the GT Academy 2012 mini-game, fans have good reason to be optimistic.
For now, here’s the official list of changes according to Polyphony Digital:Updates and New Features
-It is now possible to adjust the race BGM and sound effect volume from “Quick Options” during a race.
-A save data backup feature has been added.
-Compatibility for the sequential shift mode of the Guillemot “TH8 RS” gear shifter has been added.
-A “Performance Difference Adjustment” has been added to the rewards for seasonal events (Applies only to seasonal events held after this update).
-Force feedback for the “Driving Force™GT”, “GT FORCE®Pro”, “G25 Racing Wheel”, ” G27 Racing Wheel”, and ” T500 RS” steering wheel controllers have been improved.
-A car with racing modifications applied are now categorized as a Racing Car (previously Tuned Car).
-The off-track shortcut penalty has been tweaked.
-The GT5 Photo Stream service has just been launched for all players worldwide. To view the latest images taken and shared in the game are now available here.Bug Fixes

As of writing, Polyphony Digital has not released any official list of changes, and no obvious changes have yet appeared in the game. Keep an eye on this blog post and GTPlanet’s Gran Turismo 5 forum for more information as its released.
Chevrolet and Polyphony Digital formally announced their special collaboration on the next-generation C7 model corvette today at the Los Angeles International Auto Show.
First spotted in Gran Turismo 5 by GTPlanet community members earlier this month, the heavily camouflaged prototype will be drivable in the game “today” by downloading the car as free DLC from the PlayStation Store.
According to the press release, Polyphony Digital paid careful attention to every detail in the creases and wrinkles in the soft camouflage, used to disguise the prototype while its driving characteristics are currently being tuned and refined ahead of the vehicle’s official debut in January.
“Until now, only the most skilled drivers on the Corvette team have been authorized to push the test prototypes to the limits on some of the most challenging track surfaces in the world,” said Chris Perry, vice president of Chevrolet Global Marketing. “Through this unique collaboration with Gran Turismo, Chevrolet is able, for the first time, to give performance car enthusiasts access to such an exclusive driving experience.”
“Gran Turismo has had many firsts and we’re excited to partner with Chevrolet for yet another – bringing the first-ever Chevrolet prototype vehicle into a racing game,” said Kazunori Yamauchi. “As car enthusiasts, we’re thrilled to give fans this extraordinary level of access to the seventh generation Corvette that otherwise would not be possible.”
Chevrolet will formally reveal the 2014 Corvette prototype on Sunday, January 13, 2013. More information on the announcement will be available at One13Thirteen.com.
