Gran Turismo 5 developer Polyphony has revealed that the game is set to get some new DLC cars and an update to version 2.08 next week.

Update 2.08 will bring several balance tweaks and bug fixes to the game, the most significant one bring the ability to disable collisions in head-to-head multiplayer. The three new cars are the Nissan GT-R N24 GT Academy ’12, the Subaru BRZ S ’12, and the Honda Weider HSV-010 (SUPER GT) ’11, each will cost $.99. The DLC will be available September 25 in the U.S. and September 26 in Europe.

Patch 2.08 should be made available next week and includes the following changes:

  • 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.)
