You won’t have to cycle around in Corvettes and Lamborghinis anytime soon Gran Turismo 7. Instead, you’re given a limited number of used cars to choose from – cars your parents may have picked you up from school. While you are free to upgrade these low PP cars to give them a bit more horsepower, there are still some ways to unlock better cars early. Gran Turismo 7. What if we told you there was a way to unlock some of the best cars in the game before you hit the World Circuit races?
Now, “best cars” in a game like Gran Turismo 7 depending on personal preference. Currently, there are no “meta” vehicles required for use in World Circuits or online. Furthermore, the different races come with certain limitations, making the “best car” in the European campaign useless in the United States. To get the most out of the early game, players need a set of rides to switch between depending on where they’re racing. Here are the best starter cars in Gran Turismo 7 and how to unlock them.
To unlock the best starter cars in Gran Turismo 7, go to the licensing center and complete all five licensing stages. There are 50 time challenges/lessons to complete and all you have to do is win bronze for all 50 challenges. Any qualified driver can obtain the first four license classes. However, the super license proves more challenging, especially the S-7 where you will be driving the SP19 Super Formula / Honda ’19. They haven’t taught you how to drive F1 cars up to this point, so you’ll do it yourself. Know that they pop a dime, so you’ll have to readjust your braking and turning technique. Do not overcompensate.
Completing the last three license lessons will unlock the following cars:
- International race car B: GR Supra ’19
- International racing car A: 86 Gr.B
- Super: R8 LMS Evo ’19
Now that you have these three cars, go to the menus and start tearing through them. As long as the races you play have no type requirements, you can use these three cars to suck up the competition. Unfortunately, some races restrict you to road cars, thus excluding these three race class cars.
Cars with the best early menus
The best way to unlock more road cars is to complete the menu for Luca in the cafe. The menu makes up the loose career mode in Gran Turismo 7And they’re the key to unlocking new cars and features like multiplayer, Scapes, and challenge tents. While the menus don’t reward you with new cars, the rides you earn by completing them are pretty good to get you started. What’s more, because the menu cars come from different regions and come in a variety of makes, classes and powertrains, you’ll always have the right vehicle for any event.
Here are some menu cars that we’ve really enjoyed and when you’ll unlock them.
- MINI Cooper S ’05: Roll menu 7
- Mustang GT ’15: The 14 . Menu Book
- Camaro SS ’16: Roll menu 15
- Nissan Fairlady Z ’07: 18 . Menu Book
- Alfa Romeo 4C ’14: Roll menu 23
The first car you get on Gran Turismo 7 will come from the used car dealer in the top right of the underworld map. Here you can buy used cars with savings. However, you are limited to what Andy, the used car salesman, has in stock. To be honest, we have never bought another car from our second-hand lot after our first. There are so many cars to unlock by completing menus, permits, and challenge events in the tent that dropping thousands of credits on a used car seems counter-intuitive.
For our first car, we bought the Honda Fit Hybrid ’14. It got us through the first few preliminary races and the initial menu book. However, after we got our driver’s license, we never set foot in Honda again.
The only advantage to the used lot is that you cannot get these cars from Brand Central. The selection also rotates, so you can check periodically to see what’s available. If you see a car you like but can’t afford, add it to your wish list. When that vehicle reappears, you’ll see a message in the old batch that says, “Vehicle available for purchase.” You will also see a red flag on things that have been used in the underworld.
Brand Central is the place where you will buy the brand new car of your dreams. You are free to explore brands from all over the world, but remember: New cars cost you a considerable amount of credit. We don’t recommend investing in a Center Brand car until you’ve upgraded some menu bonus cars in the tuning shop. That way, you have enough cars to race without investing all your credit in the Lamborghini you’ve always wanted. That being said, here are two “affordable” cars from Brand Central that we drove:
- Camaro ZL1: 79,500 credits
- Ferrari F8 Tributo: 330,500 credits
Although Ferrari is expensive, we couldn’t help ourselves. Meanwhile, the Camaro is a solid choice, with a few upgrades in the Tuning Shop we’ve become a viable American racer.
You’ll notice offers in the Brand Center that grant you the opportunity to purchase unique cars as they become available. Sadly, these offers spit in your face when those cars cost over 1 million credits. It’s best to ignore invitations when you’re just starting out.
