* 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.

The game has been challenged by Microsoft's ''VideoGame/ForzaMotorsport'' series of games, which use the same basic formula but adds in custom paint jobs and car damage at the expense of a huge car list.

** The Special Stage Route 11, one of the twistiest courses in the entire series, deserves a shout out to ''Initial D'' as well.

** Performing a racing modification on Lotus Europa in ''2'' allows you to select a white body with red stripes, straight out of a 70's racing manga called ''Circuit no Ōkami'' (''The Circuit Wolf'').

Added DiffLines:

** 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.

Added DiffLines:

** 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 American version of the same game, the opponent can, but the player cannot, use Scion [=xB=] in the Japanese Compact race, because Scion is considered as an American brand. The Toyota [=bB=] - the source car for the [=xB=] in other regions - can be entered perfectly fine in other versions of the game.
This list shows the last 10 events of 196. Show all.
