Bad news for fans of the Playstation’s premier racing game: Gran Turismo 7’s release has been pushed from 2021 to 2022.

The revelation came during an interview with Jim Ryan, Sony Interactive Entertainment’s CEO, conducted by GQ. The magazine asked about the game’s release date and had a PR professional jump in to deliver the following statement.

“GT7 has been impacted by Covid-related production challenges and therefore will shift from 2021 to 2022,” wrote Sony in a statement. “With the ongoing pandemic, it’s a dynamic and changing situation and some critical aspects of game production have been slowed over the past several months.”

As for an exact release date, Sony provided no further information than that it will be released next year. Indeed, Gran Turismo’s developers aren’t the only ones grappling with the pandemic. Several high-profile video games were delayed due to the same reason, like Deathloop, Far Cry 6, Halo Infinite, and more.

Gran Turismo 7’s first trailer was released in June as part of a Sony livestream event. The game is the first in almost seven years given a number and a place in the canonical Gran Turismo series. Although Gran Turismo Sport came out between games 6 and 7, its greater focus on e-sports meant that it was considered more of a spin-off than the numbered series.

Indeed, Kazunori Yamauchi, the CEO of Polyphony Digital who’s responsible for developing Gran Turismo, suggested in an interview earlier this month that the new installment would take a step away from GT Sport and return to the more familiar gameplay style of earlier entries into the series.

Rugged pickups are a hot commodity and Shelby American is responding by introducing their 2021 F-250 Super Baja.

According to Shelby American President Gary Patterson, “The astounding capabilities of the Ford Shelby F-150 … led to requests for a three-quarter ton truck that delivered maximum towing capacity and serious off-road capabilities.”

The company has delivered as the F-250 Super Baja features a 6.7-liter Power Stroke turbodiesel engine that produces 475 hp (354 kW / 482 PS) and 1,050 lb-ft (1,424 Nm) of torque. It’s connected to a ten-speed automatic transmission and a standard four-wheel drive system.

Shelby says the truck has best-in-class towing, but they declined to elaborate. However, the Ford F-Series Super Duty has a maximum conventional towing capacity of 24,200 lbs (10,977 kg) and a maximum fifth-wheel towing capacity of 32,500 lbs (14,742 kg).

On the styling front, the truck has been equipped with a ventilated ram air hood, heavy duty bumpers and a chase rack that can hold two spare tires. The model also sports LED auxiliary lights, power retractable side steps and additional body color accents. Rounding out the highlights are a spray-in bed liner and 18-inch wheels wrapped in 37-inch BFG KM3 tires.

That’s just scratching the surface as the model has a Fox suspension which gives the truck a “higher ride height, more travel and improved off-road handling.” It features adjustable upper control arms, custom front radius arms and a Fox 2.0 dual steering stabilizer. There are also front coilovers with Fox 2.5 adjustable reservoirs and 2.5 Fox Factory Race adjustable rear shocks with piggyback reservoirs.

Last but not least, there’s a sportier interior with Shelby branded leather seats and faux carbon fiber trim. Customers will also find billet pedals, special gauges, embroidered floor mats and a serialized dash plaque.

Production will be limited to 250 units for the 2021 model year and pricing starts at $125,805 including the base F-250 Lariat 4×4.

McLaren’s new Artura, the car that’s meant to herald a new age for the British automaker, has finally arrived, and along with it comes a list of firsts for the company. The supercar has only been out for less than a week but we were able to get a look at not only the first one in the United States, but also one of the first in a setting other than a professional studio.

The car was at McLaren North Jersey at the time of our visit last week, but right now it’s currently visiting another dealership in Connecticut. It’s worth noting that finding adequate space to take photos of the car was somewhat of a challenge, but we tried to capture it as best as we could.

The first thing that immediately stood out was the stunning Flux Green launch color. The paintwork was incredibly rich and deep, and it had a very nice color-shifting quality to it, appearing as different mix of yellow and green tones depending on the lighting. The interior was also in the same color scheme as the launch car, with a black dashboard, white seats and door cards, and green accents throughout.

The overall exterior design, while all-new, is quite familiar for a McLaren. It’s certainly more evolutionary than revolutionary, but you can definitely tell what’s new, especially in person. Things like the recessed headlights and new side intake design are a welcome addition to some of the cues that we’ve become accustomed to on other McLaren models. Some other interesting things to note are the lack of cut lines on top of the rear end and the surprisingly decent amount of trunk space.

Unfortunately, this was a demo car, so we couldn’t get to hear it fire up or see it drive, but the Artura’s specs speak for themselves. It boasts 671 hp (680 PS / 500 kW) and 531 lb-ft (720 Nm) of torque, a 0-60 mph (0-100 km/h) time of 3 seconds, and a top speed of 205 mph (330 km/h). Combine all of that with the striking design, the all-new platform it rides on, and the fact that it’s both Woking’s first V6 and plug-in hybrid car, and you begin to understand why the company touts the Artura as “the full force of McLaren”.

Special thanks to Venetia Katsihtis and the rest of McLaren North Jersey for making this happen
