Gran Turismo has become a household name among racing fans thanks to the addition of a wide variety of cars. In all the Gran Turismo games, some of the cars are prestigious in the sense that they rarely appeared in the games’ car lists. They are extremely valuable and having some in your collection meant everything in the world.
So, with that in mind, here are 10 of the rarest cars to appear in Gran Turismo history.
Light Car Company Rocket ’07
The Light Car Company Rocket is an open cockpit roadster that only appears in Gran Turismo 6† It was designed by the legendary designer Gordon Murray. This car appears to have been modeled after a 1950s Grand Prix car. Behind the driver’s seat you’ll find both the horizontally mounted 4-cylinder engine that comes standard on the Yamaha FJ1000 motorcycle and the sequential shift transmission.
Venturi Atlantique 600 LM
The Venturi Atlantique is a supercar that appears in Gran Turismo 2† It is definitely a pleasure to drive. In addition, it was the GT1 variant that took part in the actual 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1995. Although he did not finish the race and was not classified. Since it’s only seen in the second game, it definitely deserves a spot on this list of rare cars in Gran Turismo history.
Gillet Vertigo ’97
The Gillet Vertigo is a favorite among Gran Turismo fans for its sleek design and color scheme. The unique thing about the ’97 version of the car is that it only appears in Gran Turismo 3 A spec† It can be purchased from the Gillet dealer for over 1 million credits. It can also be won as a prize by winning the Passage to Colosseo endurance event or the European Championship.
In addition, the 2004 version of the car appears from GT4, so the ’97 version is certainly rare.
Lister Storm V12 ’94
Equipped with a Jaguar V12 engine under the hood, the Lister Storm is a beautiful car that only appears in Gran Turismo 2† In addition, the body is made of an aluminum honeycomb monocoque with a carbon composite roof to finish it off. This street car variant is unique in that it does not appear in any other GT game. The racing version of the Storm will be released from Gran Turismo 3.
Suzuki Escudo Pikes Peak Version ’96
The ’96 Suzuki Pikes Peak is a great hill-climbing rally car that appears in Gran Turismo 2† With a pair of turbochargers, the mid-mounted engine produces a peak power of nearly 1,000 horsepower. Many Gran Turismo 2 players are familiar with this rally car as it can easily outperform any other car on any track.
Lunar Roving Vehicle LRV-001 ’71
Now you may be thinking, a lunar craft? At Gran Turismo? To answer both questions, absolutely. Boeing was responsible for the construction of this vehicle, which was used as the primary means of transport during the Apollo 15 space mission. This only appears in Gran Turismo 6 In the series. Even in that case, you can’t buy or own it, because the Lunar Exploration game mode is the only place where it can be controlled.
Fittipaldi EF7 VGT
The EF7 VGT is a concept supercar designed by two-time F1 World Champion Emerson Fittipaldi and designed by Pininfarina. In fact, it is the only VGT car to be sold in real life. The supercar was produced in limited numbers and production is rumored to have ended around 2018.
The car only appears in Gran Turismo Sport currently. But it can appear in Gran Turismo 7 although it is highly unlikely.
The Vector M12 has an impressive appearance thanks to the fact that it is powered by a Lamborghini V12, and it is also a lot of fun to drive. A five-speed manual transmission, which is attached to the Vector’s mid-engine, is responsible for delivering power to the vehicle’s rear wheels. This car only made its appearance in Gran Turismo 2†
Additionally, Gran Turismo 3 was going to include it, but it never made it into the game. So it is definitely a rarity on the list.
The Ford GT90 is a name that probably sounds familiar to you if you’re a fan of 90s supercars. It is a breathtaking sight to see, both because of the beautiful ice white exterior and the blue interior. Since it was only a concept car, it was never actually put into production. The ‘New Edge’ design philosophy made its debut in the automotive world with the Ford GT90, the first car to incorporate it.
It makes its only appearance in Gran Turismo 2 and even then you can’t buy it. The GT90 can be unlocked as a prize by winning 100 miles on the Seattle Circuit.
Nike One ’22
The last car on our list is the Nike One ’22, making its debut in Gran Turismo 4† It is the only one of its kind in the game. Nike and Polyphony Digital even collaborated on this concept vehicle that looks like something out of science fiction. In addition, it was equipped with an eight-speed transmission and had a maximum speed of 230 miles per hour.
Of Gran Turismo 7 released this year, fans hoped it would appear in-game. But until then, it belongs on this list of the rarest cars in Gran Turismo history.
