Ever since the release of Spec 2.0, Gran Turismo 5 has been receiving a number of premium downloadable updates. Today, GT fans can buy two more packs. First up is Car Pack 3. Available for $5.99, the DLC collection includes six cars: the Lamborghini Aventador, Jaguar XJR-9 LM, Ashton Martin V12 Vantage, 66' Volkswagen 1200, Mini Cooper S Countryman, and the Nissan Leaf.
Available for $3.99 is the Speed Test Course Pack which features the Route X test course. According to the PlayStation.Blog, Route X is a "massive oval with giant banking corners." The track is playable online, and in Arcade and Practice modes.
Both DLC packs are available just in time for the XL Edition of Gran Turismo 5 and update 2.03--neither of which will be included on the updated Blu-ray disc. The updates featured in 2.03 are minimal, such as new theme colors and wallpapers for the My Home section. Electric cars have also been tweaked to have regenerative breaking.
