Polyphony Digital and Sony have confirmed the official track and car list for Gran Turismo 6, and also shared some details about the game’s GPS Visualizer feature.

The game will feature 1197 cars at launch–124 are first time additions to the franchise–and 29 tracks, including Mount Panorama, Silverstone, Goodwood Hillclimb, and Brands Hatch. A post-launch update to the game will add the GPS Visualizer feature, which uses a player’s phone or tablet GPS functionality to recreate tracks based on real-life routes in the course creator–which will also be added post-launch.

“Drivers will be able to record real GPS data from their own car and then recreate the route as a track in the game. The ‘GPS Visualizer’ also utilizes GPS coordinate data from a real car on the real-life versions of the GT6 circuits. The data can then be imported into GT6 to create a ‘virtual’ replay image of your laps in the game,” Sony explains.

Gran Turismo 6 is set to release December 6 exclusively on PlayStation 3.
