** In ''6'', the Fisker Karma and the Tesla Roadster and Model S. Yes, they're electric cars but their single greatest advantage compared to combustion engine powered cars is their single-gear transmission, which doesn't tax the engine and the car's speed. In straightaways, they lose their effectiveness because they can only go so fast as their motor allows them to and electric motors do not have a customizable transmission; however, in the corners, because of their single-gear transmission, they can actually outrun even sports cars (provided that they are not of supercar level), and these electric wheelers make surprising contenders for first place because of that advantage.

In RealLife, they're {{Lightning Bruiser}}s in their own right.

* [[TheTonightShow Jay Leno]]: He's a ''brand of car'' in ''4,'' as his unique hot rod with a Sherman tank engine is a bonus vehicle.

** [[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]].

** A few cars were also shafted, such as the Lancia Stratos and an actual Porsche 911.

** 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.
