The November update of PlayStation's Gran Turismo Sport is due out Tuesday and it will include nine new cars in addition to Spain's Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya, more commonly known as just Catalunya.

Formula 1 fans and drivers alike should be mighty familiar with that track given that it not only hosts the Spanish Grand Prix but also happens to be the official venue for pre-season testing. Featuring 16 corners over 2.9 miles, Catalunya is the latest real-world circuit where GT Sport players can test their Mercedes-AMG F1 cars, Nissan Skylines, and whatever else they happen to have in their virtual garages.

Speaking of filling garages, the nine new vehicles coming to the game include three Italian exotics, three Japanese Super GT racers from 2008, an E-Type Jag, the R53 Mini Cooper S, and the 22B Subaru Impreza WRX STi. 

Here's the full list:

  • Ferrari 288 GTO '84
  • Maserati GranTurismo S '08
  • Pagani Zonda R ’09
  • Honda EPSON NSX ’08
  • Lexus PETRONAS TOM'S SC430 ’08
  • Nissan XANAVI NISMO GT-R ’08
  • Jaguar E-Type Coupé '61
  • Mini Cooper S '05
  • Subaru Impreza 22B-STi Version '98

This month's update also brings in a small handful of singleplayer events including a Mini Coopers-only "Mini Challenge", a one-make series of races for the game's fantasy X2014 race car, and a "Circuit Experience" tutorial mode for Fuji Speedway. A number of autumn-themed backdrops have also been added to the game's "Scapes" photo mode.

Gran Turismo Sport is available now exclusively for PlayStation 4.
