Polyphony’s gone live with the Spec 2.0 update for Gran Turismo 5, as well as confirming the first details of DLC for the racer.

Spec 2.0 weights in at 1192Mb, with a handful of big changes onboard for the update, some of which include cockpit views for standard cars, a new intro movie, improved online lounge and, as previously detailed, the ability to save during endurance races.

Get the full list of additions over at GT Planet.

Over on the US Gran Turismo website, the first bits of DLC have been announced, priced and dated.

The Course Pack will feature a weather-customisable Spa-Francorchamps in Belgium, as well as a night-time kart track for $4.99.

The Racing Car Pack will feature 15 cars for $7.99, including Red Bull X2011 Prototype ’11, which is currently being offered as a free gift in-game for one week thanks to Sebastian Vettel winning his second Formula One world championship.

The Racing Gear Pack, which will feature new helmets and overalls, will set you back $2.99, while the Paint Pack that will introduce new colours – shock – will be $1.99.

Get the whole lot in one single pack for $11.99. All of the content releases next week, October 18.

This is the first batch of DLC for Gran Turismo 5 since its worldwide launch in late November last year.
