Welcome back to another edition of First Look XL. We have a treat in store for you as we take a look at the new downloadable content that is now available for the PlayStation 3’s flagship racing title, Gran Turismo 5.
The first of the two packs is called Speed Test Pack which features a brand new oval racing track with banked corners to allow you to test your car’s top speeds. You can access this track in Arcade mode and GT mode. In the latter mode, you have a speed test function on your home page and when selected, it will take you to the new track and leave you with two options. You can either test your favorite car’s top speed over a 1km distance, or test your acceleration times and G-Force over a 1 mile stretch. These functions will allow you to test your car after you have tuned them, ready for when you have that next competitive race.
The next downloadable content is Car Pack 3 which features 6 brand new cars. These are the VW 1200 1966, the Nissan Leaf electric car, the Mini Countryman S 2011, the Aston Martin V12 Vantage 2011, the Jaguar XJR9 race car and the Lamborghini Aventador. All of these are premium cars so you cannot sell them but you will be able to tune up the majority of these cars to your liking.
So if this has you interested, take a look at the footage and the screenshots and keep an eye out on GodisaGeek.com for further news, reviews and video footage. Enjoy!
Gran Turismo 5 Speed Test Pack and Car Pack 3 are available to download now via the PlayStation Network.
