** Pretty much any road car in the games (especially in the earlier games) due to ''very''-limited visual customization; you can be able to tune a car into a ''rocket'', but you aren't able to turn a car into a RiceBurner.

* MyRulesAreNotYourRules: Try entering your [[DiscOneNuke Cadillac Cien]] or Volkswagen W12 Nardo in the ''4'' Supercar Festival. Encounter the blinking red "Production Cars Only" (Meaning concept cars like the aforementioned examples are banned). Find that the AI ''can'' enter the Cien or the Nardo. RageQuit.

* MyRulesAreNotYourRules: Try entering your [[DiscOneNuke Cadillac Cien]] or Volkswagen W12 Nardo ** Another example is the Japanese 80's event in ''4'', where a ''1991'' model Toyota Celica would appear as an opponent. ** Additionally, due to brand localization in the ''4'' Supercar Festival. Encounter American version of the blinking red "Production Cars Only" (Meaning concept cars like same game, the aforementioned examples are banned). Find that opponent can, but the AI ''can'' enter player cannot, use Scion [=xB=] in the Cien or Japanese Compact race, because Scion is considered as an American brand. The Toyota [=bB=] - the Nardo. RageQuit.source car for the [=xB=] in other regions - can be entered perfectly fine in other versions of the game.

** Faded Marlboro chevrons (with a picture of an F1 car in place of the Marlboro text below the chevron) used to exist in Monza in ''=5='' and early versions of ''6''; these were later removed in an update for ''6''.

** The TVR Speed 12 in 2. Probably the most uncontrollable car in the entire series, it can't look at a corner without spinning. If you buy all the kit, like Traction Control, Limited Slip Diff, Supersoft tyres and Racing Mods for down force, then seriously jack all the car's settings, you ''might'' just get a LethalJokeCharacter out of it. *** SelfImposedChallenge: Try doing Laguna Seca 200 Miles with it. 90 times through the Corkscrew? It's bloody terrifying!

** ''6'' adds Fisker Karma and Tesla Model S, as well as Tajima E-Runner Pikes Peak racer (yes, it is an electric car) and later the Toyota TS030 Hybrid. Furthermore, some of the Vision GT cars, such as those from Mitsubishi, Subaru, Nissan, and Toyota have hybrid capability.

** Other useless joke cars include the Fiat 500F, the Honda Life Stepvan, the Subaru 360, the VW Beetle 1948, and many other classic cars. Some of these can't even be driven in races. [=GT2=] had a few of these as well.

*** Not entirely; the recommended route is to get a Chaparral 2J, which pays for itself. It's inconvenient, but gives you an excuse to buy the best value-for-money car in the game.

** ''[=GT5=]'' throws in the [[NazisWithGnarlyWeapons Volkswagen Kübelwagen]] (a Nazi army vehicle) and the Volkswagen Sambus (a van), though they're used in the ''TopGear'' Test Track challenges. It still gives you the Subaru 360 and the like as (unsellable) prize cars, however.

** In ''3'', the Endurance League manages to be ''shorter than Professional League and even Begginer League''. The Begginer League is very long due to the game lacking the short version of alot of the tracks, thus having to race 100-200 horsepower machines on track like Grand Valley Speedway or Test Course, of all the things and Professional League has no excuse other than it's massively long. Several series, 5 to 10 laps, tire wear, numerous 7-10 race Championships and to top it all off, Test Course 20 laps on Like the Wind and Formula GT. The Endurance races feel shorter on this game compared to this, doesn't it?

** There's another layer to this idiocy; you can't actually obtain the Nardo yourself until you win the "Like the Wind" event in the Extreme Hall. To unlock the Extreme Hall, you need to win all events in the Professional Hall... including the Supercar Festival.

** ''GT 1'''s North American and PAL releases had "Everything Must Go (The Chemical Brothers Remix)" by the Manic Street Preachers. ** ''GT 2'' used "My Favourite Game" by The Cardigans, while a remixed version was used on the PAL version. The song itself is about how much the band loved playing the first game on their bus while on tour. In addition to this, the name of the album where it comes from is also ''Gran Turismo''. ** ''GT 3'' had a remixed version of "Are You Gonna Go My Way" by Lenny Kravitz on the North American version and "Just a Day (Alan Moulder Mix)" by Feeder on the PAL version. ** ''GT 4'' had "Panama" by Van Halen play after the series theme in the North American version. The PAL version used "Reason Is Treason (Jack Knife Lee Remix)" by Kasabian instead. ** ''GT 5'' uses "Planetary (GO!)" by My Chemical Romance. ** ''GT 6'' goes back to original score with "All My Life" by Daiki Kasho.

There is no Amateur League in Gran Turismo 4. There is Beginner, Professional, and Extreme, but not Amateur.
* DifficultySpike: In ''4'', there's the Gran Turismo World Championship that's only available after beating the Beginner, Amateur, and the rest of Professional Hall. You go from racing with tuned cars and touring racing cars to Le Mans Prototypes. That costs over 4 million credits.

* LethalJokeCharacter: The Renault Espace F1 in ''2'' -- a ''racing minivan'', except this thing is no joke: It [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eaW_35KPDBY actually exists]] and will kick the ass of any other minivan ever created. A shame it has only been driven once. In the game, it is competitive with the highest tier of racing cars.
