** Also mentioned above on ThoseWackyNazis, the Auto Union Streamline is [[{{Zeerust}} wacky and aerodynamic for a 1935 racing car.]] It's [[NazisWithGnarlyWeapons somewhat useless]], but if you can tune it correctly, it can even operate like StupidJetpackHitler, outperforming all Le Mans race cars on speed-based race events.

** ''[=GT5=]'' throws in the [[NazisWithGnarlyWeapons Volkswagen Kübelwagen]] (a Nazi army vehicle) and the Volkswagen Sambabus (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.

** The third dropped it down to around 150, thanks to the longer time it took to render a car on the more powerful PlayStation 2.

* EasterEgg: In [=GT5=] if you go into cockpit view in the High End Performance G37 you will notice a PS3 in the back.

** Ironically, it is reversed in the hardest licence of them all - the final one on ''4''. In the NTSC-U (American) and PAL (European) versions, the test consists of a DTM touring car on a lap of the full Nurburgring (the one that Jackie Stewart christened the "Green Hell"). In the Japanese version, the test is changed to being a lap of the Nurburgring in the Sauber Mercedes C9, the winner of the Le Mans 24 Hours in 1989. Obviously, it's more difficult.

** As of 2015, the Seasonal Events in [=GT6=] have the replayable Beginner, Intermediate, and Expert Racing Challenges for players to earn quick cash as a consolation from the previous game's Seasonal Events and tedious grinding of the offline events.

Added DiffLines:

** Several Toyota race cars, such as the Castrol Supra and more recently the [=TS030=], includes minor sponsorship from ZENT, an operator of pachinko parlors in Japan (which is gambling). Apparently the company also have real estate operations, hence why the ZENT logos were never removed from the game.

* JokeLevel: ''[=GT6=]'' features at least one challenge involving racing a moon buggy around the Apollo 15 landing site. Although the zero-gravity environment means it is an actually a lethal one.

* MarathonLevel: Endurance races. Taken UpToEleven in the fourth game, which added THREE 24 hour races to the event list, along with a couple 4 hour races, an 8 hour race and a 9 hour race.

** The real life Nurburgring Nordschleife (20 kms) and it's combined circuit (25 kms) make an appearance, but are notably not the longest tracks. ''6's'' Circuito de la Sierra (27 kms), a high-speed technical mountain circuit based in Spain's Analusia region, and Special Stage X (30kms), two 10km straightaways with 5km turns separating them, take the cake.
