Get More Parts with this Duplicate Parts Trick

This is a neat little cheat where you can easily get a load more parts.

1. Buy two cars that are the same, then purchase all of the parts that you want for one of the cars. These are the parts that we'll be looking to duplicate.

2. Now view all of your new fitted car parts in the garage.

3. Select the duplicate car that you have no parts for, and view it's parts list. It should be empty.

4. Stay in this 2nd car and enter a spot race.

5. Now when qualifying, select Machine Parts, and Change Parts, you should be able to fit all of the parts that you purchased for the original car.

That's it, now both cars should be fully stacked with all of the parts that you originally purchased for the first car.

This cheat will not work on cars that have been awarded. Only items available in the Change Parts menu can be duplicated.

Easy Money Cheats

Get $20k easily by racing the qualifier for the all-nighter. You'll need to qualify to get the cash. We recommend doing this with the GTO special edition or similar as long as it has good acceleration, top sped and handling. This may not be something you can do early in the game so you may need to unlock a decent enough car first to do this easy money cheat.

Another way to get some easy money in Gran Turismo is to get a car capable of winning the Normal Car championship - so no tuning. This is a good event to grind out credits as for each race in the championship you'll get 50,000 credits for each win, and if you can be first in the overall championship you can get another 100,000 credits on top of the race win prizes. A good car for this even could be the Dodge Viper GTS.

If you have already accumulated 1,000,000 credits then possibly the Turbo Car Cup in GT mode could be a grinding option for you. Purchase a 180SX and the win you'll get 300,000 credits and a R33 drag car.

Licence Completion Tip

If there is any licence that you are having trouble getting, head to the replay theater where you can view the demo videos. This shoudl give you some clues and help on how to complete each of the licences.

While in the replay mode, hitting circle will toggle the view setting and square will toggle the camera distance (while in the car view mode). X toggles replay data.

Select the trade option and insert your card to slot two when prompted.

Once the card has fully loaded, select the concept car from the garage.

The concept car should be costing you 0 credits, and you should be able go back and do this 100 times.

Best Cars in Gran Turismo

Here are some of the best cars in Gran Turismo, we'll start with some of the fastest, then look at a good option for when you are starting out in the game.

Fastest Cars in Gran Turismo

The GTO Twin Turbo is the fastest or one of the fastest cars in the game. You'll need to fully equip it to make it the fastest though. You should be able to get it to 930hp with some tweaking.

Another super fast car in Gran Turismo is the Mitsubishi 3000GT and is another car that you can get to about 930 hp with parts and tuning. Handling is also incredible with this car.

For something a bit more spicy, try the Supra RZ. While it's acceleration and top speed is some of the highest in the game, the handling is not fantastic and it does have a tendency to spin out because it is a FR car.

The highest horsepower car however when fully tuned is the Nissan Skyline R33 GT-R and you can get it to a whopping 955 HP. Tune this bad boy to perfection to get the best top speeds, the only problem is finding a track that will let you reach those levels.

Overall however, we think that the Purple Concept Car is the fastest car in the game. Like all top cars, it will need a fair bit of tuning to get it at it's best but should be the other cars mentioned above in most three lat races.

Other notable mentions for fastest cars in Gran Turismo include the Toyota Supra RZ which can also reach over a 900HP when correctly tuned.

Good Starter Car

The Honda Prelude 94 Vtec is a great car to use early in the game, it's reasonable priced but still powerful. Don't forget to get the most out of it by upgrading the car and adding stuff. It should be really useful early in the game while you are building up your cash.

Another great starter car is the Toyota MA70Supra. It's fast but not as easy to handle watch it doesn't spin out and don't overspin the back wheels.

Unlock High Resolution Option

Get to play Gran Turismo in a higher resolution with this unlock. You can either complete all arcade mode tracks on the hard difficulty setting or get yourself the International A license and win all gour cups in the GT League.

Bonus FMV sequence

This FMV bonus sequence will take some grinding to get, but if you can win the race of all tracks, including bonus tracks and in all 3 class modes and on normal or higher difficulty, then head to Bonus Items, where you should now be able to see the Staff Video. Good luck finding it on YouTube!

Entering a race with a higher horsepower car

If you car is a little over powered for the race you want to take. Head to the test track and make some adjustments to your car to lower the HP. You should then be able to use it for the race.
