In the behind the scenes video, Polyphony Digital CEO Kazunori Yamauchi discusses updates to the franchise’s livery editor, which has been used to create “several million” liveries since its introduction in 2017’s Gran Turismo Sport.
“Liveries have been applied to racing cars ever since the 1970s,” he says. “These liveries have become iconic, inextricably linked with people’s memories of certain races.

“I believe that using the livery editor turns a car into a blank canvas, a medium of expression. It’s essentially a place where players can express themselves.
“So, our main goal for us in creating the new livery editor is to improve usability and the ease of use for the gamers.”
Sony recently detailed Gran Turismo 7 pre-order items and the game’s 25th Anniversary Edition, which costs $90 / £90.
