Gran Turismo 5's first paid for downloadable content is coming nearly a year after the game first released - and it's bringing with it Belgium's famed Spa-Francorchamps circuit.

The downloadable content will be available in numerous packs, and while pricing's yet to be announced for UK the US official site reveals they cost between $1.99 and $7.99 when they launch next week, with the complete set coming in at $11.99.

A course pack introduces Spa's Francorchamps circuit, a legendary 4.352 mile run through the Ardennes forest that will be available in various weather conditions. A night-time kart track fills out the pack, which will be drivable in numerous configurations.

It's to be joined by a car pack which will bring with it a Red Bull X11 - a new iteration of the outlandish imagined car designed by Adrian Newey in the original game - and various currently unspecified others.

There's also a driver pack, which introduces new overalls and helmets for the player avatar, with several of them modeled after existing WRC and NASCAR outfits. Last and most certainly least is a paint pack that introduces 100 new colours to the game.

The downloadable content follows immediately in the wake of Gran Turismo 5 Spec 2.0, a free update that went live earlier today. It updates the physics, introduces a new, simplified cockpit view for standard cars and adds new photo modes among other things. We'll bring you fuller impressions in the near future.
