Brembo engineers and the game designers have collaborated constantly throughout recent years in order to ensure that the new version of Gran Turismo would have an unprecedented level of realism, even in braking! The use of Brembo braking components has an impact on braking distance and how cars corner and this aspect was also considered and faithfully reproduced in Gran Turismo 7.
In addition to sharing their know how, Brembo also provided the software engineers with all the drawings and dynamic characteristics of their products so that the ones presented in Gran Turismo 7 would be identical digital counterparts to the braking components that can be purchased in real life.
Even the sequence and the available braking system upgrades are not by chance but reflect the typical path that is followed in real life by those who choose to tune the braking system in their cars. You normally begin by changing the brake pads, then you opt for higher performance discs, followed by a complete braking system upgrade in the various options of increasing performance.
This aspect comes to life in the aforementioned Tuning Shop, which is made up of 5 submenus, each corresponding to a different level of tuning. From lowest to highest, the first is “Sports”, followed by “Club Sports” and then “Semi-Racing”, “Racing”, and finally, the absolute tuning pinnacle, called “Extreme”.
