** [[TokyoXtremeRacer Kaido Battle]] series is also a rival to Gran Turismo series due to similarities, [[spoiler: such as the vehicle rosters]]. Except [[spoiler: you're on mountain roads instead of race tracks]].

** In ''3'', the [=McLaren=]-Mercedes [=MP4=]/13. Inaccessible without hacking, the Formula One racer was a test model for open wheel cars (since the game was the first to have that type of car), and for that reason any concerns with licensing or even the radar were completely thrown out of the window as the car sports its original West livery, save for the side pods in which it says "Test".

* JackOfAllStats: Clearing the first license on the fourth game nets you a Pontiac Sunfire, still a normal sedan but also a well-balanced starter car. The first game, meanwhile, is way easier if you start with the [[InitialD AE86]].

** A big selling point in ''6'' was the collaboration of PD and the Ayrton Senna Institute of Brazil. Speculations flew wildly as fans wondered if they would be able to drive the legendary three-time world champion's red and white [=McLaren=]-Honda, or get tracks from his time period. Come the game's release... and there is literally nothing but the opening cutscene. A series of challenges involving Senna, complete with a 20 minute unlockable documentary, two '80s layout tracks (Brands Hatch and Monza) and three of his cars (a go-kart, a British F3 car and his 1985 Lotus 97T) would only arrive later via free DLC.

** The unlockable documentary in ''5'', ''Ayrton's Wish'', censors out the Marlboro name in all archive photos shown during it, but retains the chevron. This is all thrown out of the window whenever Senna's sister Viviane appears on screen, sitting in the background is Senna's 1990 McLaren Honda with absolutely no attempt made to hide the full Marlboro branding!

*** Somewhat justified, as the legendary car is a priceless museum piece and national symbol for Brazil, and to try and censor out the logos would be sacrilegious at best.

*** Similarly, the Chaparral 2J, one of the most famous cars in the franchise. It has amazing downforce and cornering speed owing to its extreme ground effects technology, while not sacrificing straight line performance. Those two factors ensure it as a competitive car almost regardless of opposition, so long as it's in broad daylight.



*** Somewhat averted for the Formula GT: you can detune it to below 750PP and use it in the few races that allow cars of that level to enter. It pretty much only maintains its cornering ability, and will struggle in circuits with long straightaways due to the lower power and extra weight.



** 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.

** Some of the Vision GT cars included in [=6=] are indeed this. The SRT Tomahawk X is the epitome of this trope, boasting 2000+ horsepower and requiring the drivers to wear a G-suit. The GTS-R and S models are also available that are nerfed for general racing and road, respectively.

The X version, especially, is so bat-shit crazy fast, it ''can outrun the in-game racing line's rendering speed'' when it approaches its top speed.



** Averted in ''6'': there is a hidden event in the International A section, rather than the S section.

** In an odd play of the trope, the Toyota RSC Rally Car in ''4''. The first one you get is more of a DiscOneNuke. However, it's very easy to get more of it (in fact, you can use the first one you got), and it sells for a great price, especially in the early game. When players need money, expect this car to be sold en masse.

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: Before the series started, the development team worked on another Playstation racer called ''Motortoon GP'', which can be best described as a ''MarioKart'' clone with realistic driving physics (as contradictory as that may sound). It was this physics system that they ported over to ''Gran Turismo'''s more realistic concept.
