Gran Turismo 5 Spec 2 is confirmed for launch in Japan on 2nd February 2012. We're checking with Sony Computer Entertainment Europe now on a UK release.
Developer Polyphony Digital's Japanese website (via Andriasang) reveals a new cover, with the Red Bull X2011 on it.
It also mentions Spec 2 includes Gran Turismo 5, all of the content from the 11th October version 2.00 update, and a download code for the Complete Pack, which launched in Japan on 18th October.
In October Martin Robinson returned to the racing game for Eurogamer's GT5 2.0: Why You Need To Go Back feature.
"If you're looking for a diversity of driving experiences, then Gran Turismo's always been the best," he wrote, "and now it's that little bit better too."
