Polyphony Digital has confirmed that Gran Turismo 6 will feature up to 1200 cars and 100 track layouts.
The PlayStation 3 exclusive introduces new circuits to the series, including Mount Panorama, Ascari, Silverstone and Goodwood.
Meanwhile, a post-launch update will introduce a new GPS Logger feature. This will use the player's phone or tablet GPS functionality in order to recreate tracks based on daily commutes in the game's Course Maker.
In the words of Sony's press release:
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 utilises 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.
The Course Maker will also be made available post launch, though no date was specified.
Gran Turismo 6 will release December 6 exclusively for PS3.
Pressed on whether the installment will eventually be released for PlayStation 4, series creator Kazunori Yamauchi said that Gran Turismo 7 will instead release for the next-gen console in "a year or two".
