has announced news of two new Gran Turismo 5 PS3 DLC packs incoming today, namely Twin Ring Motegi Pack and Scion FR-S 12.
To quote: The online portion of GT Academy 2012 may have ended, but that doesn't mean you should stop playing Gran Turismo 5!
Hitting the PlayStation Store update this week are two new exciting DLCs - The Twin Ring Motegi Pack and Scion FR-S 12.
Twin Ring Motegi Pack (2 tracks, 4 layouts)
The Twin Ring Motegi is a racing circuit located in Japan that has both an oval and road course. The 2.4km oval 'Superspeedway' is mainly used as the stage for American motorsports, while the 4.8km road course is used for races like the Super GT and Formula Nippon.
In addition to these two tracks, the Twin Ring Motegi Pack also includes the West and East courses that are formed by separating the first and latter half of the road course, letting you enjoy the different technical layouts of the Motegi Track
Scion FR-S '12
The long awaited compact FR (front engine, rear wheel drive) sportscar from Scion carries a 2-liter horizontally opposed engine that gives it a very low center of gravity and great weight distribution, and the car is specifically designed throughout to provide driving pleasure.
The car is a brother of the Toyota 86 sold in Japan, and its front engine-rear wheel drive layout makes it perfect for learning sports driving techniques. Put one in your garage!
