There is now no bigger racing game than Gran Turismo® 7, and we mean it literally and figuratively.
Not only is it popular – it tops the latest sales charts and dominates social media – but its scope is huge.
This isn’t a racing game judged by the number of tracks alone, but rather an elaborate, rhythmic single player experience that will guide you through the cacophony of car culture and racing strategy.
Gran Turismo® 7 is more complex than it first appears. Much more. With that in mind, here are our tips and tricks to help you maximize your time with Polyphony Digital’s latest addition.
Think of Brand Central as your new car supermarket. Here, all vehicles come with a showroom sheen and an extended warranty — most likely.
For those unaware, all the cars here are from 2001 or later, so the classic racing cars are missing out. However, it is where you can buy the latest supercars, Vision Gran Turismo concepts and contemporary racing cars.
Some luxury cars, such as the Aston Martin Vulcan or the Porsche Carrera GT, cannot be bought from Brand Central without an invitation, even if you have the money.
It simulates the real world, where even if you are rich, you should be chosen to buy some of the most exclusive cars.
At the start of the game, you will receive an invitation to purchase a random exclusive car once you advance through the cafe, but other invitations must be won in roulette with a four-star ticket or higher. We’ll talk about that later.
Beware, invitations expire after a certain date, so you’ll miss out on your chance to buy if you don’t act fast.

Here you will find only five rare and exclusive cars, all at high prices. You won’t find them in center brands with generic cars, oh no.
Again, stock changes daily, so if you’re looking for an elusive McLaren F1 GTR you should keep checking and saving some money in the meantime.
This agent has a sponsor, Hagerty – a combined auto insurance provider and auto media company. A limited stock warning means something is about to go off, and a blue or red arrow next to the vehicle’s price indicates a change in value based on Hagerty’s actual price assessments.
So far, it is worth noting that cars that were worth 20,000,000 credits in the GT Sport are now within everyone’s reach. For example, at the time of this article’s creation, the ’67 Ford Mark IV race car was a credit 4,000,000 with just 5,455 miles on the odometer on Gran Turismo 7.
Do those daily miles
Simply drive any game mode over 26,219 miles, the length of a marathon, each day to complete a daily workout. For this, you will receive a roulette ticket.
Activate the ticket and you will get a reward. It can be in-game currency, a tuning part, or even an entire car.
These tickets have a star rating, six being the maximum. A six-star ticket brought us 500,000 points, while a two-star ticket brought us only 5,000, for example. Chance determines the level of ticket you will receive for daily training, but it is still worth starting the game and driving at least once a week. Something to get one.
You don’t have to use it right away, but we recommend it. Open it up in your garage space.
You’ll get a taste of those roulette tickets by completing the cafe menu books as well, as some of them are prizes, and here the stars rise depending on the difficulty of each challenge.
Multiplayer mode must be unlocked.
If you’ve just started playing Gran Turismo® 7 and are looking for split races or online competitions, you won’t find it.
This is because the multiplayer must be unlocked.
He will appear after completing the cafe menu book #9 – Tokyo Highway Championships in the top three overall.
Next, the “Multiplayer” suite will appear on the world map, containing split screens for players and online lobbies. A separate suite for the Sports mode, the online competitive section, will also open at this point.
Don’t fall asleep in circuit experience challenges
You’ll find one of these in Café Menu books – #24 in particular – but remember to use it independently.
If you are having trouble with a particular circuit, or need more money, visit the Global Rings area. Select any circle and there will be an option “Experience Circle”.
Here you will drive a borrowed car in sectors of the circle counterclockwise. Beat the target times to earn money and also learn the site. Once you have completed the segments, you are ready to perform the One Turn Attack, which will allow you to earn additional credits.
Some are just a fun way to discover new cars, like the Radical SR3 SL in the Brand Hatch or the Audi R18 TDI ’11 Gr.1 in Sardinia. Gold is also hard to earn, so if you think licenses are easy, give it a try.
Drive clean, get rewarded
For every race you take, whether in single player or online multiplayer, if you stay on the track and don’t bump into your opponents, you’ll receive a clean race bonus that adds 50% to your winnings.
This encourages you not to bump into walls, cut corners, and use your opponents as mounds because it hurts your wallet and may mean you can’t stand the big rims.
