The transition to the next-gen of PS5 has had a lot of impact on Gran Turismo 7. With 400+ cars and 90+ tracks to race around with at launch, there’s already a ton to do. Sony and the developer have also committed to adding more content over time. The new online system for GT7 puts players into two groups. With more defined segregation between casual and competitive play, both modes get their own modes to mess around with. There are also a lot of cars that you can tune. And with all of that tuning, comes a literal mountain of options to mess with.
How to customize your driving gear in Gran Turismo 7
You obviously want more than just your car to look great out on the track. You can even tweak the look of your driver and their wearable kit on the track as well. So if you like a custom color scheme for your driver, here’s how to customize your driving gear in Gran Turismo 7.
You start the game with a pretty drab white outfit on as your driving suit. But as you get deeper into the game, you unlock color options that can be swapped around. When you get a few hours into the game, you unlock GT Auto Mode. This will add various options to the main menu, including an option to change your driving gear and look. Look on the bottom-right of the overworld screen for the option you want. GT Auto has three main functions for you to use:
- Maintenance & Servicing – Here you can fix and repair your car to keep it in the race.
- Customize Cars – Wheels, paint, liveries and many other cosmetic changes to your car are done here.
- Driving Gear – Use this to customize the colors and decals on your driving suit.
Getting this mode unlocked is part of story progression. Once you unlock the Mini-Cooper S ’65, you will be asked to complete a race with it. Simply finish in a podium spot while driving this vehicle to unlock GT Auto Mode.
There are many other things you can customize as well. Your livery on your cars can obviously be tuned to your liking. There are also a lot of cars that you can tune and upgrade.
