Music meets racing in Music Rally and Music Replay
New with Gran Turismo 7, Music Rally is a new casual way to enjoy driving where music meets racing.

Another exciting new feature is the Music Replay system, which automatically generates camera positions and cuts during replays to fit the music. Enjoy watching back your favorite races with your favorite music.
New improved physics simulation model
With more than 25 years of development, this title sees the greatest advancements yet in Gran Turismo’s physics simulation model for cars. Using computational fluid dynamics, the game is able to recreate the changes in downforce due to front to rear height changes, as well as effects to handling due to wind direction and air turbulence. As well as pursuing realism in physics, feedback has been collected from various sources including our advisor Lewis Hamilton, our technical partner and global tire manufacturer Michelin, and the best drivers of the FIA GT Championships to create the most natural driving feeling possible.
Time and weather changes based on global data
As you drive under wide open blue skies, dark clouds begin to form and pour down torrential rain before clearing up to blue skies again. Start driving in the middle of a starlit night and see the morning sun light up the sky with orange as you cross the finish line. Just as in real life, in Gran Turismo 7 the environment is constantly changing. These time and weather changes are made possible by a simulation model that utilizes extensive climate data taken from each track location. The result is a breathtakingly realistic and beautiful recreation of our sky.
Weather changes can alter the course of a race
Rain falls upon the track surface changing from dry to wet. Although rain conditions have been featured in previous versions, Gran Turismo 7 evolves this system even further, with more accurate simulations of the road surface as it becomes wet and dries out. New expressions of natural phenomena are now possible. Even within the same wet track, puddles can form in some areas, and as more cars pass over the racing line, the road dries out faster. Experience dramatic and dynamic races where anything can happen.
Sport mode expands the scope of e-motorsports
As well as offering a wealth of car entertainment, Gran Turismo 7 is also designed to support Esports comprehensively. In Sport mode, anyone can easily take part in races with players from around the world with Daily Races, or the official Online Championship which has been running every year since 2018. This championship includes not only online races, but also features live events open to the top ranked players of the year. The action from all the races happened so far can be watched on Gran Turismo LIVE. Some of these top players even feature as characters within Gran Turismo 7.
