Crazy used car prices
And now a feature you might find as depressing as it is delightful. Yes, we’ve known the used car auction house has been due to make a return for a while. What we now know is that it will contain around a quarter of the cars on the game. More importantly, we also now know that prices will reflect real-world numbers. Meaning? Well, in Gran Turismo 7, a clean twin-turbo Mk4 Supra with a manual gearbox might just set you back more from the used car lot than a new one from a dealer, as it would in real life.
“At the Used Car Dealer, players can purchase cars for more affordable prices” Yamauchi continues.
“However, some very popular used cars may be sold at an even higher price, than when they originally came out.”
If you think about it, this is nothing new. The Ferrari 250 GTO wasn’t tens of millions of dollars when new, as it has been on many games for the last few years. But a used car dealer that reflects the real world as completely as GT7 seems to, we’ve not yet seen. It could prove very interesting indeed.
Speaking of the 250 GTO, it and cars of this ilk aren’t exactly “used car dealer” fodder. As such, on GT7, you’ll find it in the Legendary Car Dealership alongside other “certain iconic cars” that “have marked their names in the history books”. Everything from the Willys Jeep, to the Porsche 917 and Mercedes CLK LM are visible in this section.
