Selecting series awards:
Series awards [i.e., cars] are not purely random. Press
X when a silhouetted car has the large black circle flashing
under it to cause that car to be selected as the award for winning
the series. Timing is crucial, since the large black circle only
appears under a car for less than half a second. If you are too
slow, the next car to get the large black circle will be selected.
You can get unlimited F1 cars by playing endurance races, as you
can win prize cars from those races unlimited times. To select
a prize car, hit X when the black circle is under the
car of your choice.
To get the series car of your choice, just race all the races
in series mode, not single. Save before the last race. Do not
exit the series -- use the save function shown after the race
is done. Then, start and quit the last race. If you have enough
points from previous races you should still win the series, then
continue to where they award the series prize. If you get a car
you do not want, just exit the game, go back to the title screen,
then load. The game will start from the last race you saved at.
Quit the last race then continue onto the series and repeat until
you get the desired car.

the series to get a lot of money. The car that you win [Acura
RSX Type S] can be sold for 7,500 credits. Note: This car cannot
be bought in the game so you may want to keep one.
Hints: Polophony Racing Car:
Finish an endurance race, a Professional League race
[one of the races is called the Dream Car Championship], or get
100% of the game completed A good car to use is the Nissan R390
GT1 LM Edition. You can put a turbo stage 3 on it to boost the
car to 1180HP.
Hints: Controlling MR tire grip:
When you tune a MR [Mid Engine/RWD] car for absolute
power, the rear tires heat up very quickly. Put a less expensive
tread on the rear tires [for example, medium on the rear and super-soft
on the front] for better grip and control, and less tire wear
in a long race.
Hints: Tuscan Speed 12:
Complete the Tuscan race in the Professional League.
It is the bottom car -- the rest are Griffith 500s.
Hints: Corvette C5R:
Complete 50% of the game.
Hints: Tuning drive trains:
To get the most speed out of your car you have to get
the most horses, however sometimes the transmission will keep
you from getting to use all of it. Buy the Full Customization
transmission. Now go to the settings either right before a race
or at home. Change the settings of the last part of your transmission
[the bar that has Sports on the left and Wide on the right] to
all the way left. This will move your individual gear ratios.
Next, go to the 'Final' bar and move it as far right
as it will go. Then, go to the next bar up and move it as far
left as it will go. Do that to the remaining bars. When racing
you will notice that your gears will shift extremely quickly,
however, the bad starts will lead to every single horsepower being
used. This is really only needed in high-powered cars that exceed
650 horses and should not be used in short races with competitors
having equal power to your own.
Hints: Trial Mountain II: Shortcut:
This trick requires an average car that is lightweight,
such as a tuned Mazda Miata. Choose the Trial Mountain II race
and take off. Get to the left side of the track and stay in about
fourth place. At the first left turn, turn sharply and early.
If you aimed and timed correctly, you should hit a small rise
in the corner of the track, fly over the other cars, and land
on the other side of the track in first place. You can continue
to race or quit and watch the replay.
Drive into the pit. While in auto drive, tap R1x2 then
hold R2 for about a second. If done correctly, your car
will appear on the track again with perfect tires. This is useful
for endurance or pro races.
Hints: Glitch: No yellow markings:
Note: This was done while driving the Polyphony 001,
but should work with all the cars. Race on the Test course and
go to the first person view. Look in the mirror and you will notice
that you cannot see the yellow road markings on the inside of
the corners, except on the bend nearest to the finish line.
Hints: Mini Cooper 1.3i:
Win the Lightweight K Cup in the Beginner League.
Save the Mini Cooper 1.3i that you win at the Lightweight K Cup
in the Beginner League. You will need it for a race later, and
you cannot buy that car at the dealership.
Hints: Mitsubishi 3000 GT Twin Turbo: Easy
Hints: Shelby Cobra:
Win the Spider & Roadster Championship in the Professional
Hints: Glitch: Super speed on test course:
Use the following trick to go over 1400 mph on test
course. Make sure your GT-One race car has all the upgrades, the
stage 4 turbo kit, super-soft tires, and a fresh oil change. Next,
go into the vehicle settings for the car and make the following
changes: Spring rate 4.0 Front/ 4.0 Rear, Ride Height 55 Front/
55 Rear, Shock Bound/Rebound 1 Front/ 1 Rear, Camber/Toe Angles
0 Front/ 0 Rear, Brake Balance 9 Front/ 9 Rear, Limited-Slip Initial
Torque 60, Limited-Slip Accel 60, Limited-Slip Decel 20, Downforce
.45 Front/ 1.25 Rear, ASM 10, TCS 5. Here is the important part
-- go to the Gear Ratio Settings screen and change the final gear
to 5.499. Change the Auto Settings level to 47 and then to level
48. Do not change the settings for the individual gears [i.e.,
1st through 6th] -- they should now be set to specific levels.
Now, change the final gear back to 2.900, and do not forget to
accept the changes. Go to the Max Speed Test. Make sure to do
a 180 [turn completely around] to go the opposite direction around
the track. Otherwise, you will be stopped and given your max speed
at the other end of the track. As you go around the first and
second corner, stay in third gear by holding R2 [if using
an automatic transmission]. As soon as you come off the second
corner heading down the straight-a-away, release R2 after
you reach a speed of 243 mph. The front end of the GT-One should
lift up and you will start to go very fast. It is possible to
set a max speed record of 1455 mph or better by changing the time
at which you release R2.
Alternately, use the following settings with the Toyota GT-1 Race
Car [TSO20] to get over 1250 mph on the max speed test. Use a
manual transmission for best results. Spring rate Front- 0%, Rear-
0%,Ride height F- 0%, R- 0%, Shock bound F 7, R 7, Shock rebound
F- 7, R- 7, Camber 0, Toe 0, Stabilizers 0%, Limited Slip initial
torque F 0, R 5, Limited Slip Acceleration F 0, R 5, Limited Slip
Deceleration F 0, R 5, Gears 1st- 2.572, 2nd- 1.613, 3rd- 1.125,
4th- 0.829, 5th- 0.646, 6th- 0.489, Final- 3.964, Downforce Front-
0%, Downforce- Rear- 100%, ASM 0, TCS 0.
You can attain a speed of over 5000 mph on the test course if
you do the following. Set up the Toyota GT1 race car for the 1300
mph glitch in the game. Then, get a friend and set up the arcade
mode for at least 15 laps and choose the test course. Have both
players choose the GT1 race car which is set up for the top speed
glitch. Have one person get on the bumper of the other person's
car and start going around the test course drafting the entire
way. You must make sure you keep drafting, because you will slowly
start to carry more and more speed out of the corners until you
reach a point where you can stay in sixth gear coming out of the
corner. Once you have perfected this, the cars are able to attain
over 5000 mph by this drafting method. Note: The game will sometimes
lock up because it cannot handle the figures the cars start to
Hints: Mercedes SLK 230 Komhitor:

Hints: Nissan Silvia K's 1800cc:
Win the FR Challenge in the Beginner League.
Hints: Glitch: See through walls:
At the Super Speedway, on any of the turns, scrape
the car onto the turns without braking. Look on the side of the
bleachers, and you will see through them.
The following settings will get your Supra going up
to 258 mph. In the drivetrain part of buy parts, only buy the
full-racing transmission and do not buy any of the stability control.
Go to the max speed test and go to the settings and set the following
Spring Rate: Front 13.7, Rear 6.5
Hints: Recommended tires:
Ride Height: Front 100, Rear 100
Shock Bound: Front Level 7, Rear Level 7
Shock Rebound: Front Level 7, Rear Level 7
Camber Angle: Front 2.0, Rear 1.0
Toe Angle: Front 0.0, Rear 0.0
Stabilizers: Front Level 3, Rear Level 3
ASM: Level 10
TCS: Level 5
For any normal non-endurance race, select super soft
race tires. They do not wear out on the track unless you see a
tire meter on your screen. For endurance races, use the cheapest
race tires. Though the screen says they have the least traction
they will have enough after about two laps to keep you going quickly.
Despite being the cheapest, they are in fact race tires and work
much better than any street tire. You will benefit more by getting
extra laps on a set of cheap tires then getting a few faster laps
on the expensive tires, which will need more frequent changes.
This will also save money.
Hints: SS-5 Wet Route: Easy win:
Pace along side of the car in the SS-5 Wet Route track.
Just before you drive by the pit stop, push him over so that he
will run into the end of the wall that divides the pitstop and
track. If done correctly, you will stop the car from doing anything.
He well be stuck there for the rest of the race.
Hints: Super Speedway 150 Miles [Endurance]:
The Super Speedway 150 Miles endurance race can be
won without being in control or the car. Use a rubber band to
hold X [accelerate] and Analog-stick to the Right
[slightly]. You should use a semi-fast car, but the other drivers
will be going into the pit while you will not -- time will be
made up in this way. Having the Analog-stick in that direction
prevents you from going into the pit and never exiting. This is
an easy way to make 200,000 credits. You will win a very expensive
car, one of which is the F090, which is one of the best cars in
Get the Escudo and ride the walls around the turns for the entire
race. It is possible to finish the race in 45 minutes by doing

Hints: F/094-S Indy car:
This car is acquired when you complete 100% of the
game. This includes gold medals on all races, arcade mode completed,
and new records set on all challenges. If you are a very skilled
racer and spend nearly a year on the game, you will be unbeatable.
There are six different F1 cars throughout the game.
This is the best Indy car in the game. You can get it by completing
the Polyphony Digital Cup races. Use the TVR Tuscan Speed 6 with
racing slick tires to win the Polyphony races. It is the best
unmodified car you can use. Make sure you save the game before
the last race so you can try multiple times to get it at the end.
Once you get it, you can beat all the Formula GT races relatively
This is the best F-1 car in the game. It has the best acceleration,
handling, and top speed.
This car is strong in everything.
Hints: More horsepower:
To make your car gain about 25 to 150 hp, take it to
the test track and do a Max Speed Test. Keep it floored the entire
time. After a couple of times, stop, change your oil, and check
your new hp.
When buying or acquiring a new car that you want to race, run
it at one of the tracks under 'Run and Setting' several
times after adding upgrades, instead of entering it immediately
into a race. The engine needs to be broken in before racing. Your
horsepower will improve, depending on your upgrades.
If you own a car thats worth enough to change the high speed,
go to settings at the Test Track. Go to the transmission section,
move down to the gear ratio and change it as wide as possible
by going to the bottom and bringing the bar to wide instead of
Hints: Volkswagen New Beetle 2.0:

Hints: Deutsche Tourenwagen Challenge [Amateur
Hints: Better cornering control:
Tap the emergency brake [default is Circle]
just before a sharp turn and let the car go into a sort of neutral
gear state. This will keep the tires from spinning due to downshifting.
Using the momentum of the car and a little braking, you should
make it through a tight turn without getting turned around or
fishtailing most of the time. This is especially helpful on the
Laguna Seca Track in the 'corkscrew' turns. This turning
technique is also helpful sometimes in a rally race. It can usually
induce a slide for tight cornering.
If you want precise cornering and acceleration, go to options
menu and set the gas to the Right Analog-stick going Up
and Down. If you use the buttons too much, they just wear
out. Never use automatic transmission; manual is way better if
you know what you are doing.

Hints: Quick start:
At the beginning of a race [except for Endurance, Super
License, and others without a countdown], do not rev your engine
by holding X. Instead, wait until the countdown reaches
'1'. By the time it says 'Go', you will have
no white smoke from your wheels, no wheelspin, and a boost of
about 0.2 seconds, which may make the difference in earning the
Gold Trophy in a license test, or a quick head start as the CPU
cars do not do this.
Hints: Honda NSX Type S Zero:
Win the MR Challenge in the Amateur League.

Hints: Panoz Esperante:
One of the best cars to start the game with is the
Panoz Esperante. In arcade mode, there is a time attack mode that
is basically like the license tests, where you are required to
set the fastest times. If you complete this mode, it will give
you the Panoz Esperante in you simulation garage. You can now
get your licenses easily and dominate.
Hints: Arcade mode tracks:
To unlock the arcade mode tracks, simply complete each
area [A, B, C, D, and E].
Hints: Not finishing Machine Test Run:
When you select Machine Test, go to maximum speed.
Chose any desired car and when you get to the race screen, go
to race. If your car never gets to its maximum speed by the end
of the session, just turn around 360 degrees. You should now be
heading the other way on the track. The game will not stop when
you get to the rendezvous point. When your car does go full speed,
you can just turn the car around and finish or exit. Your speed
will still be recorded.

twelve times and get the Mustang.
Hints: Toyota Celica SS-II:
There are two different models of the Celica SS-II
['99 model and '97 model]. Both can be won in the Altezza Race
in the Beginner League.
Hints: Big air:
Take a fast car that can go at least 230 mph on the
Test Course. Start the race and go around the first turn, trying
to pick up speed. As you get to the second turn, stay to the inside
until the yellow line pops up. At this time, keep the gas floored
and make a hard right until you hit the wall. If done correctly,
your car should go flying up in the air.
To get a lot of air and do a 360, buy a fast car such as a souped
up Skyline, with about 1040 hp. Go to the Test Course and floor
it all the way around the first turn. Floor it to the second.
When the railing appears on the second turn at the top of the
banking hit Circle for the emergency brake and turn right.
The car will get massive air, do a 360, and land back on the road
going about 140 or 150 mph. Note. You must be going about 220mph
around the turn to do this.
Hints: Toyota MR-S S Edition:
Win the MR Challenge in the Beginner League.
Hints: Toyota Celica GT-Four: Easy money:

Hints: Toyota GT-1 Race Car [TSO20]: Easy
Hints: Subaru Impreza LM Race Car:

Hints: Mazda MX-5 Miata [80's]: Good start:
Buy the Mazda MX-5 Miata [80's] as your first car,
or get all Golds in the B license to get the Mazda Roadster MX-5
[Miata] as an award. Use this car to easily win the Sunday Cup.
You will win the Toyota Sprinter Trueno GT-Apex. Sell it for extra
money. After the Sunday Cup you can try the Clubman Cup. If you
have any troubles with the Clubman Cup go back to the Sunday Cup
and race until you have enough money to buy yourself the second
turbo kit. After the Clubman Cup you can sell the Mazda [MX-5]
Eunos Roadster that was given as an award. After that you can
use your Miata to win the 80's Race. Always keep upgrading your
Miata along the way. If you keep going you should try to go or

One Championship in which you will be racing formula one cars.
This is very difficult to complete. Use the F/688 that can be
obtained in the endurance race Passage To Colloseu.
In professional mode, the last race is the Formula Cup. You will
need an F090/S, F094/H or /S, F088/S, F087/S or F086/m to compete.
Hints: Gran Turismo All-Stars [Amateur League]:
Hints: Use other cars when turning:
You can use other cars as 'turning devices'.
As you know, you have to brake a lot on certain turns. If there
is a car that is also turning directly next to you, put your car
on the side of them and keep driving. If done correctly you will
not have braked [except sometimes for timing], and the other car
may have hit a wall.
Hints: Glitch: Break through track barriers:
As in Gran Turismo 2, it is possible to break
through some barriers. One of the best places to do this is on
the Seattle track. Directly behind the start line [to your rear],
you will notice a sharp corner. Drive straight ahead [not to the
corner behind the start line but to the first turn with traffic
cones], turn completely around, and head for the sharp 90 degree
corner behind the start line. Then, ram directly into the corner
at an angle to break through to the other side. The best car to
do this with is the Escudo PPV. It is also possible to do this
on other tracks with sharp curves. You can use this trick on the
Cote d' Azur track to shave time off your lap record.
Hints: Suzuki Escudo Pikes Peak Version:
Win all Golds in Rally mode.
Hints: Suzuki Escudo Pikes Peak Version:
Hints: More speed by drafting:
The following trick can only be done effectively on

Vitz RS 1.5.
Hints: F 090/S Formula 1 car:
When first starting the game, buy a Mazda Miata that
is worth 16,900 credits. Then, put in a racing chip and do an
oil change. Next,try to raise about 38,000 to 48,000 credits.
Then, buy a Mustang SVT Cobra and tune it to the max. Note: Do
not do an oil change, as it will decrease your horsepower. Then,
go to Super Speedway 150 miles in the Endurance races. When you
win, you will be able to choose one of four prize cars. Do not
touch anything to win the Corvette CO5. Then, tune that car and
race at the Grand Valley 300 race. When you win, once again do
not touch anything at the prize car screen to get the F 090/s
Formula 1 car.
Hints: All four bonus cars with memory card:
Use the following trick to get all four bonus cars
and all colors after racing a series only one time. Two memory
cards and enough money to buy all the cars at the resale price
are required. Save to memory card one at the end of the second-to-last
race with enough points to skip the last race. Skip the last race.
Press X when the black circle is under the desired car.
If you do not get the car you desire, reload card one and try
again. Once the desired car is chosen, save to memory card two.
Reload card one, skip the last race and choose the desired car.
Go to trade without saving in the home menu. Load card two in
the trade menu. Buy the previously chosen car, then overwrite
and save to card two. Reload card one, skip the last race, choose
the next car, then go to trade again. Load card two in trade.
Next, buy all previously chosen cars, overwrite, and save to card
two again. Repeat until all desired cars and colors have been
acquired from only one series.
Hints: Tommy Kaira ZZII:
Win the MR Challenge in the Professional League.
Win the Seattle Endurance Race. It is located just before the
Hints: Horse power boost:
When you get a car, change the oil. It will boost the
horse power by at least 10 and only costs 250 credits.
You do not have to purchase all of the turbo kits to get maximum
hp. You just have to purchase the last one available.
Note: This trick requires a car with 230 hp or more.
Go to Seattle Curcuit 2 and drive over to the part of the road
which goes down. Accelerate fully all the way to the last drop.
Release the gas. When you are about to go down, slam on the gas.
You should do a wheelie.
Hints: Easy money with memory card:
Two memory cards are required for this trick. After
you have earned about 200,000 credits, purchase a car, such as
the Mitsubishi 3000 GT. Upgrade it up to the max. This will leave
you almost broke. Go home and save this car memory slot two, then
return to the title screen and load your last game from memory
slot one. This will give you your money back, and you can now
go home and trade from memory slot two. That car that you just
spent all those credits on will only cost you retail price.
Two memory cards are required for this trick. Whenever you buy
a new car, you may notice that the value is much less than what
you bought it for. Save your game to both cards, then, make sure
you have enough credits to buy whatever car you want to get rid
of at the dealership price. Go to the home garage and go to trade.
You can then sell your car to yourself at full value. Then, if
you want to do it again, save the game in memory card one but
not on card two. You will then get back whatever money your card
two lost when buying the car. This can sometimes triple your profits
over what you would get by selling them back to the dealer at
Two memory cards are required for this trick. Start a new game
or resume a current game. Save the data to the second memory card.
Then, go to trade and take all of the car[s] from the second card
and continue saving on it. Once satisfied with the amount of cars
you have on your regular game, sell the extra cars to get some
quick money. This can be repeated as needed.
Hints: Impreza Rally car:
Win the Tahiti Maze II in Rally.
Win rally mode and get the Suzuki Escudo Pikes Peak
Version. Upgrade it as much as possible, then go to the Professional
league. Select the Gran Turismo All Stars, and the Test Course.

auto final to widest, and your final to 2.260. Keep the gas button
held and you are free to do whatever while you earn 50,000 credits
for each race.
Hints: Nismo GT-R LM Roadcar:
Win the Seattle Endurance Race. It is the top left
Hints: Saving money:
Do not waste money on upgrading the first few cars
you have in the game. Instead, practice being a better driver.
Wait until you win a car with some real potential until you upgrade.
For example, start out with a Mazda Miata, but do not upgrade.
