Gran Turismo 5 developer Polyphony Digital will release a free update for the game and put three downloadable cars on the PlayStation Store next Tuesday, September 25th.

The three new cars — the Nissan GT-R N24 GT Academy '12, Subaru BRZ S '12 (seen above), and Honda Weider HSV-010 (Super GT) '11 — will each cost $0.99 on the PlayStation Store. The patch, which will bring Gran Turismo 5 to version 2.08, includes a bunch of minor improvements such as the following:

  • Now possible to select "Disable collisions" in the [Event Settings] of online races.
  • ID’s are now shown above cars when watching online races.
  • Response of the clutch pedal when using the steering wheel controllers "G25 Racing Wheel", "G27 Racing Wheel", "T500RS" and "TH8RS" has been adjusted.
  • Rate of tire wear in endurance races has been slowed (excluding formula cars).
  • Amount of air resistance change when altering aerodynamic wing settings has been increased.
  • Autopilot has been adjusted to prevent colliding with the wall when exiting the pit lane on the Tsukuba circuit.
  • Adjusted the changes in control characteristic when altering vehicle height from standard height. (Vehicle height can be changed by adjusting ride height, either by installing a suspension kit or adjusting a full customizable suspension kit.)

The XL Edition of Gran Turismo 5, which comes with all the updates through v2.0 and $20 worth of DLC, launched this past January for $39.99.
