** In ''6'', the Red Bull X-cars, the Formula Gran Turismo and Ayrton Senna's Lotus 97T. They are all insanely fast (taken UpToEleven in the case of the Red Bulls, which are [[DifficultButAwesome nigh impossible to use to their full potential]]), but the game's improved balance makes these former GameBreaker vehicles collection models at best: their performance ratings are so high (from high 800s to low 900s) that there are ''literally no events in which you can use them'' outside of Arcade Mode.

You can zoom around even the tightest hairpin at 300 km/h and break every lap record on every circuit there is, but that doesn't help towards paying the seven figure price tags.

** The Auto Union Streamline racing car is the StupidJetpackHitler example of this. If properly tuned, it can comfortably reach speeds of over 470 km/h (quite impressive for a modern car, even more so for one made in ''1936''). However, its design philosophy of extreme streamlining has a crippling flaw in a total lack of downforce, which makes it impossible to control in any way that isn't going straight.

** Normal business has been resumed with ''6'', where the credits are more lacking than ever before and the cars are more expensive than ever before,

** Normal business has been resumed with ''6'', where the credits are more lacking than ever before and the cars are more expensive than ever before,before, even if they are all readily available as opposed to ''5'', where 80% of the cars were stuck behind the Used Car Dealership RNG.

** Sometimes, during races at La Sarthe in ''[=GT6=]'', the AI will simply forget to brake coming out of the Mulsanne Straight. It can become a CrowningMomentOfFunny when you see a high-end LMP crash into a wall ''at over 320 km/h'', casually reverse and continue on his way.

** The [[GreenAesop Toyota TS030 Hybrid]] in ''6''. It being a hybrid makes it a joke in some drivers' eyes, and its awful stats (such as a measly 530 hp engine while most of the cars in its class have well over 700) seemingly cement it as a terrible car. To boot, it costs ''two million credits'' in a game [[AdamSmithHatesYourGuts infamous for having a merciless economy]]. However, it's surprisingly stable (any half-competent driver will have no problems [[CrazyAwesome running the Nordschleife in full wet conditions]] ''[[UpToEleven on slick tires]]''), it conserves its tires very well, to the point of not actually needing to change them (if they're hard compounds) at all in the endurance events, and its hybrid system uses braking force to charge a second electric engine, giving it bursts of ''830 hp'' coming out of corners, which makes most other super race cars look like VW Beetles as you overtake them. And as if that wasn't enough, ''you can take it to events featuring cars a whole tier lower than it'' due to its performance rating being so low. Assuming you have a 200% credit booster, it pays itself off in roughly 2 hours.

** The NTSC version of ''4'' had an entire JGTC car sent down the drain because its livery's main sponsor, ESSO, does not exist in the US, and therefore could not be licensed. It was only in the Japanese release of ''4'', and was deleted altogether from following releases.

*** In [=GT2=], The AI could possibly enter the 305 hp Ford GT40 in the Historic Car Cup race at Rome, which has a 295 hp limit. It will get a huge lead, with the other AI cars mostly having under 200.

*** The German Touring Car Championship in [=GT4=] is known for having the CLK-GTR (the prize car of the championship, but as a [=GT1=] race car is naturally not on the list of allowed cars) chime in on the entry list randomly. Needless to say it will outperform the DTM cars that are actually allowed and would threaten even an upgraded-to-the-max DTM car. Luckily, you can just quit and rejoin until the CLK-GTR is not on the list.

** 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.
