Added DiffLines:

** In 5's seasonal events, due to difficulty scaling on the prize payout, you could enter a hard race with a joke car, finish dead last and still end up with nearly a million credits, especially if you'd been playing 5 days in a row. If you bought the Academy Edition you also get a download code that adds all the DLC up to that point, including the lethally broken X2011, which adds the car straight into your garage, not just the game, as early as you want.

** For what it's worth, some of the later games like ''5'' and ''6'' are home to a lot of soothing jazz and lounge music, perfect for background music at any occasion. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8b3xyfJWuh0&list=PLCLeSTzz6trZMZKfxExXDmRJcyYggOWry Here's a sampler.]]

** Also notable is the [[CrowningMomentOfFunny Crowning Music Of Funny]] license test fail tune from the fourth game. The second game, whenever you failed, played the same upbeat music as when you passed, quickly leading to controller-throwing anger. The third game played a slightly sympathetic slower tune, but which eventually it felt as though it was mocking you. Realising they couldn't prevent feelings of anger from the player, in the fourth game they went with [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6jJkdRaa04g "Oh Yeah" by Yello]].

* SugarWiki/NoProblemWithLicensedGames: Anonymously, but ''Gran Turismo'' is well regarded for having this with ''Manga/InitialD'', for having Takumi's [=AE86=] (albeit with no decals) and Impact Blue's Sileighty (stock form) included throughout the series. Even the later games mention this as well.

** A big reason for the rivalry with ''Need for Speed'' is because it is to blame for Ferrari, Lamborghini, Porsche and [=McLaren=] vehicles not appearing in the first four ''Gran Turismo'' games; Polyphony was unable to secure licensing rights for them because at the time all four manufacturers had the licensing rights for their vehicles exclusively signed over to Electronic Arts. Today, EA still has the Porsche license and they've only shared that license with ''Forza'', with ''Sport'' finally adding the manufacturer's cars to the series.

However, due to problems circulating this (notably Dieselgate problems that affected Porsche as well), this was turned into non-exclusive licensing rights allowing other game developers to use Porsches freely, with ''Sport'' finally adding the manufacturer's cars to the series.
