As the Gran Turismo 5 spec 2.0 release is congesting the PSN while millions of gamers try to download it at the same time, Sony detailed today the contents of the upcoming Gran Turismo 5 DLC packages, that will be released on October the 18th.
Four DLC packs will be released, one dedicated to tracks, one to cars, one to racing gear and the last to paint options:
The Course pack will be priced $4.99 and will include the circuit of Spa-Francorchamps and a quirky and beautiful neon-lit kart track.
The Racing Car Pack will cost $7.99 and will include 11 custom-designed touring editions of cars like the Mazda RX-7, Subaru Impreza, Mitsubishi Lancer Evo X, Dodge Challenger SRT8, Nissan GT-R, Honda CR-Z and Toyota Prius, among others. In addition to that it will grant you access to three new racing karts and the Red Bull X2011 prototype, the evolution of the design of the X2010 originally included in Gran Turismo 5.
The Racing Gear Pack ($2.99) features 90 between racing suits and helmets, some original and some reproducing those of star drivers like Sebastien Loeb and Peter Solberg.
Finally, the Paint Pack ($1.99) will include 100 new colors to customize your cars, including new shades of matte, chrome and aluminium colors.
A bundle option, costing $11,99 will also provide a cheaper chance for those that want to purchase all the packages and PlayStation Plus subscribes will also be able to take advantage of a time-limited discount for a month after release.
