Brian Dunn's Avatar + Posted by Brian Dunn on Jan 12, 2012 // Associate Product Marketing Manager

Hey, GT fans! I’m happy to announce our third batch of premium downloadable content coming to Gran Turismo 5 next Tuesday, January 17, along with some updates to the game itself.

The first piece of content is Car Pack 3 for $5.99, featuring six new cars from both past and present. Download Car Pack 3 to get your hands on Lamborghini’s latest flagship model, the Aventador, along with the Jaguar XJR-9 LM racecar, Aston Martin V12 Vantage, the 66′ Volkswagen 1200, Mini Cooper S Countryman, and the new Nissan Leaf.

The second piece of new DLC is the Speed Test Course Pack featuring the Route X test course, which will be available for $3.99. If you caught the PDI-made promotional trailer for the new Acura NSX Concept vehicle (that’s right, the NSX is back!!), you’ve already seen a sneak peek of this new track. Route X is a massive oval with giant banking corners, allowing you to test your vehicles’ maximum speed and performance, plus some beautiful vistas to rush by at 200mph. You’ll be able to use this track online, and in Arcade and Practice modes.

And since the Speed Test Course Route X is the perfect proving ground to test the performance of your vehicles and all of the custom tuning and modification you’ve done, we’ve gone one step further and made that even easier for you. You’ll be able to track things like your mile and quarter-mile time, acceleration and g-force.

Also coming next week is the XL Edition of GT5 for $39.99, along with a minor update to Gran Turismo 5 via free downloadable patch. Check here for more details on the new improvements coming in next week’s patch.

I agree with those that say that these dlc are too expensive. $1 per car is outrageous, and 1 track for 4 bucks is just wrong. I really like this game but until the dlc actually seems worth it, I will not buy any of it.

the general theory is the same people love some of the dlc , hate it , wonder why they gave us not enough cars or why we never get any old tracks much less why they charge so much , here lately . people have been asking why we got a game thats unfinished and having to pay a bunch of money for dlc that ha hardly anything in it .it i over prices for the dlc , i wish there was a car pack with cars we didnt have already & everyone is crying for tracks but we got 1 this time & now after this 1 well have to wait 2 more months if u ak me i wish we didnt have to wait 2 months for a tiny bit of something . but thats just me.
we enjoy playing this game just want the most out of it . to me were just not getting enough content for the price , they could be doing a better job with the dlc and there not .

What we would need now is a classic pack… the old cars and tracks we had back in the other GT games. For the most nostalgic fans… like me!

So many hours spent on that game and still having a great time
