Gran Turismo Sport
Not just an iconic video game, but an icon in its own right. Gran Turismo tailored a generation, leaving many petrolheads lusting after legendary cars such as the Nissan Skyline and Toyota Supra. With the latest version - Gran Turismo Sport, which features the aforementioned legends, along with many other examples of the world's most sought-after cars, after our resident petrolhead played the game for a considerable amount of time, it got us all thinking...
How much would it cost to purchase a quality example of each road car in the game, in real life?
To determine an accurate value, we have found cars for sale which match the specific car's year in the game. For example; 2007 BMW M3 - out of those for sale, we went for a relatively low mileage, clean and tidy example. The most desirable without going over the top. As with most cars, cheaper examples are available of course, but tend to be poor condition with high miles or imperfections, so we have stayed away from those when producing a value.
In some cases, we have used premium auction history or Hagerty insurance values, as some of the cars in the list are ultra-rare and can't be found on websites such as AutoTrader/PistonHeads etc.
With that in mind, discover below how much it would cost to buy each road car in Gran Turismo Sport. It's worth noting some road cars in the game are modified special editions or concept cars, which of course won't be included.
500 (2009) - £6,000
We start in alphabetical order, meaning the entertaining little Abarth 500 is first up. Often referred to as a Fiat 500 on steroids, this pocket-sized hot hatch has developed quite the following. Enhanced looks, power upgrades and various special editions have meant that the Abarth 500 is a hugely tempting used buy, especially at this price.
Abarth Total = £6,000
Mito 1.4 T Sport (2009) - £3,000
This smart little Italian hatchback is in some respects very much like a more mature Fiat 500. Thanks to chic Italian styling and of course the sophisticated Alfa Romeo badge, it's a lot more grown-up and can be purchased for not much money at all.
4C Launch Edition (2014) - £44,000
The saying goes, 'You're not a petrolhead until you've owned an Alfa'. The Alfa Romeo 4C is a stunning addition to Alfa Romeo's history and looks like a baby supercar in every sense. Prices continue to float around the £30-40k mark with the 'Launch Edition' being the most sought-after, with a slight premium over regular Alfa Romeo 4C models.
Alfa Romeo Total = £47,000
A110 1600S (1972) - £70,000
Born in the '60s, the Alpine A110 1600S is our first classic in this list. It also appeals due to its rallying success, winning multiple races in the '70s. With textbook '60s style and flair, a nice well-kept example from the model's later production in 1972 is not as expensive as some classics in our list. However, £70,000 for a rare, bona fide, motorsport inspired classic car is quite reasonable, when compared with other classics you'll discover throughout this list.
A110 Première Édition (2017) - £48,000
A modern day reincarnation of the original A110 mentioned previous, this new generation A110 gives other sports cars like the Porsche Cayman something to think about, whilst perfectly executing the original A110's fine lines. The Première Édition is available for considerably less than the original, that doesn't mean it's a lesser car however, as it has many admirers due to its fine driving experience.
Alpine Total: £118,000
One-77 (2011) - £1,500,000
An ultra-exclusive flagship Aston Martin revealed at the Geneva Motorshow back in 2009, with only 77 made. Unfortunately, only 76 examples exist today after one of these glorious cars was sadly written off. The sheer exclusivity means prices are comfortably into seven figures.
V8 Vantage S (2015) - £80,000
With a glorious V8 engine, along with compact, muscular looks, the reign of this particular generation of Vantage lasted for well over a decade. With such a legacy, the Vanatge will always be lusted after and still fetches strong money despite a newer Vantage succeeding this generation.
DB11 (2016) - £98,000
An achingly beautiful super sports car, which can now be had for under six figures. The DB11 sounds glorious, as is the case with every Aston Martin. In the DB11, this is thanks to the orchestral V12 engine.
Vulcan (2016) - £2,500,000
Bound to cause controversy, but as some examples have been made road-legal, we have decided to include it. We were easily persuaded thanks to the Vulcan's uniqueness, presence and it's fitting name. Along with the fact that it is just an incredible thing to look it and appreciate from an engineering aspect. And if you had the money, what better way to make a statement.
Aston Martin Total: £4,178,000
TT 3.2 Quattro (2003) - £5,000
The first-generation Audi TT was nothing short of stunning, and most certainly one of the most iconic car designs of the last two decades. The 3.2 Quattro is not as popular as the 1.8-litre 20 valve turbo version, but what it lacks in popularity, it gains in noise and character.
R8 (2007) - £34,000
The first-generation TT was stunning, but the first-generation R8 reached even greater heights upon launch, its design was extraordinary and still looks ultra-futuristic despite being introduced back in 2006. Early 2007 models can even be had for the price of a brand-new hot hatch. If you were to apply a private plate on a first-generation R8, many people could well think the car was a brand-new model.
TTS (2014) - £22,000
The Mk3 Audi TTS is the final edition of the iconic TT. The TTS may not be the range-topping RS model, but it's still impressively quick and comes with Audi's superb Quattro all-wheel drive system, along with the awesome 'Virtual Cockpit' instrument display.
Audi Total: £61,000
BMW E30 M3 Sport Evolution (1989) - £105,000
When we think of performance cars, BMW M cars are some of the best available, and have been for many generations. Especially the first ever M3; the E30, and none more so than the Sport Evolution, of which there were only 600 examples built for homologation rules. Today six figures is the norm for a well-sorted E30 M3, especially a Sport Evolution.
BMW Z8 (2001) - £210,000
Built to pay homage to the legendary BMW 507, the Z8, like the classic 507 is a gorgeous looking automobile. It also is famed for being James Bond's personal car in The World Is Not Enough - which for any car, is always going to do it no harm being an official Bond car. It's also a possibility as to why values have substantially appreciated over the car's original selling price.
BMW E46 M3 (2003) - £20,000
The E46 is another hugely celebrated generation of the legendary BMW M3. It's n wonder that the car is slowly starting to appreciate too, if you can find a clean, well kept example that is. That is a lot harder than it sounds though. The distinct howl of an E46 M3 is a harmonic treat for any automotive or BMW M enthusiast.
BMW E92 M3 (2007) - £17,000
A glorious sounding straight-six engine appeared in the previous E46 M3, so with the introduction of the E92 in 2007, BMW went a tad crazy and decided to fit one of the most iconic engines on the planet - the V8. What's more, it was naturally-aspirated meaning the E92 didn't disappoint M car enthusiasts. The value above represents a well sorted, clean, cherished example.
BMW M4 (2014) - £27,000
A new model in the BMW M lineup? Yes, and no. The M4 is essentially a coupe M3, as the M3 version of this generation has four doors. The M4 also features a new turbo engine, meaning greater economy and more power. Proving change is no bad thing, as the M4 is still a bona fide M car.
BMW i3 (2015) - £15,000
BMW are one of the world's most recognised and most successful manufacturers, so it comes as no surprise that they offer a full-electric car in the form of the i3. This futuristic looking model can usually return between 80-100 miles, although newer models have enhanced range capabilities as well as slightly enhanced styling details too.
BMW Total: £394,000
Bugatti Veyron (2013) - £1,000,000
Arguably one of the most significant cars of recent times. The Bugatti Veyron is essentially a Concorde moment for cars. Launched in 2005 it was the fastest road car in the world, reaching a ultra-impressive 253mph. It was also voted as Top Gear's Car of the Decade (2000-2010).
As the world's fastest car (once upon a time), the world's most popular racing game couldn't leave it out. Ensuring we can all experience what it feels like maxing a Veyron out on the Circuit de la Sarthe, and then probably crashing it into the armco. At least you don't have to worry about the repair bill on Gran Turismo...
Bugatti Total: £1,000,000
Corvette Stingray (1963) - £75,000
An epic looking original Corvette from an era when style was everything. Although this was the second-generation Corvette, you could argue it was better looking than the first, thanks to its iconic split rear-window.
Camaro Z28 (1969) - £50,000
The first-generation Camaro. Such an iconic start to this muscle car legacy, and a supremely cool one too. The Camaro still exists today, and is still battling it out for top spot with the guys over at Ford and Dodge.
C3 Corvette Stingray Convertible (1969) - £40,000
The great grandfather of the C7 Corvette and the successor to the Corvette Stingray from '63. It's arguably not as pretty as the older generation, but its no-nonsense look and excellent power means these were popular cars, and a fine part of the Corvette bloodline.
C7 Corvette Stingray (2014) - £46,000
With the C8 ready for 2020, the C7 was the last generation which ran from 2014 to 2019, and featured the familiar rear-wheel drive, front engine layout. The long bonnet, central quad exhaust pipes and multiple versions of this high-powered, high-performance sports car have seen it continue to 'annoy' those in more expensive supercars.
Camaro SS (2016) - £35,000
One of America's most popular muscle cars, and a sinister looking on at that. For some time now it has been going wheel to wheel with the equally iconic Ford Mustang and Dodge Challenger. The Camaro comes with a V8 engine, naturally - anything less wouldn't really cut it...
Camaro ZL1 1 LE Package (2018) - £50,000
The regular Camaro mentioned prior is a bit of a beast, and if you've ever driven one, you don't really think, 'I like this but it needs more power'! Anyhow, the guys at Chevrolet still produced the ZL1 - and for that, we applaud. This range-topping track focused monster is nothing short of excessive, but in a good way. A 6.2-litre V8 producing 650bhp means 62mph is dealt with in just 3.5 seconds, along with lots of tyre smoke for good measure!
Chevrolet Total: £296,000
Citroen DS3 Racing (2011) - £7,000
The clue is in the name. The DS3 Racing is the fastest version of this chic and stylish supermini. With brightly coloured highlights including bold orange wheels, you know this little Parisian pocket rocket has got a trick or two in its 1.6-litre, 204bhp engine.
Citroen Total: £7,000
Copen (2002) - £2,500
Kei cars and ultra-compact cars are ideal for Japan's tight roads. The Copen is indeed a Kei car, and this cute little sports car is perfect for zipping round city streets, or more challenging country lanes. You can pick one up for a bargain too!
Daihatsu Total: £2,500
Pantera (1971) - £115,000
Born in the '70s, the De Tomaso Pantera had all of the foundations needed to be supercar success. Italian born, super sleek lines, a V8 engine and the all-important pop-up headlights. Today, you'll need over six figures to find a fine example of this unique alternative to the more mainstream classic supercars. Has nothing to do with Tomatoes if you were wondering...
De Tomaso Total: £115,000
Challenger R/T (1970) - £85,000
The first-generation of the legendary Dodge Challenger, a car which has gone wheel to wheel with legendary American muscle cars such as the Ford Mustang and Chevrolet Camaro, showing no signs of backing out of the trio of muscle, generation after generation. We approve.
Superbee (1970) - £30,000
A low-priced Muscle Car from the '70s. The words low-priced and Muscle Car are a match made in heaven, and the Superbee is yet another old-school Muscle Car that is highly sought-after, as it should be.
Viper GTS (2002) - £50,000
Viper, yet another iconic nameplate in American car history. The GTS from 2002 was a beast, with an 8-litre V10 engine and signature 'Viper Stripes' running along the centre of the car.
Viper SRT10 (2006) - £45,000
Another somewhat crazy version of the Dodge Viper. The SRT10 was an enhanced version of the GTS that launched in 2002, with over 500bhp and more polished looks and feel.
SRT Viper GTS (2013) - £70,000
Over time the Viper GTS became even more of a beast, which is really saying something. This 2013 model is a lot more polished, and easier to live with. Take the word "easy" with a pinch of salt, as the 2013 version features an 8.4-litre heart and is capable of over 200mph.
Charger SRT Hellcat (2015) - £60,000
A more practical muscle car thanks to its four-door layout. This rear-wheel drive, 6.2-litre supercharged V8 saloon can hit 62mph in just 3.5 seconds. With a name like Hellcat, you wouldn't expect anything less.
Dodge Total: £340,000
250 GT Berlinetta SWB (1961) - £7,400,000
One of the most valuable cars in the world. Why? Take one look at a GT Berlinetta and it soon becomes obvious. The '60s design is nothing short of glorious and a car of this rarity (only 176 made) was always going to be hugely sought-after and therefore extremely valuable, especially being a Ferrari too.
Dino (1961) - £350,000
Named after Enzo Ferrari's late son, Alfredo 'Dino' Ferrari, the Dino was always destined to be a great Ferrari. The mid-engined V6 version from '71 is another example of superb Ferrari design, which will continue to be hugely sought-after. A fitting tribute to a Ferrari family member for sure.
365 GTB/4 (1971) - £550,000
Styling in the '60s and '70s was arguably one of the best eras for car design. The 365 GTB/4 was yet another iconic Ferrari featuring achingly beautiful lines and a stereotypical long bonnet - a trait of many exclusive sports cars from this era. It wasn't just for style purposes though, as it housed a glorious Ferrari V12 engine. It made for an epic recipe.
512 BB (1976) - £240,000
BB is short for Berlinetta Boxer, and featured a radical change for a Ferrari which included a longitudinally-mounted flat-12 engine. Interesting, as the name suggests the car may feature a Boxer engine, although it is technically a 180 degree V12. One thing that is for sure are just how cool the pop-up headlights are, as who doesn't love pop-up headlights?
288 GTO (1984) - £2,100,000
The Ferrari GTO name is legendary, and the cars that bear the name are ultra-sought-after, for good reason. The 288 GTO is no different, after being born in 1984 to meet homologation rules for racing. Only 284 were made, meaning this is another exclusive and rare prancing horse, taking after the original Ferrari 250 GTO and the later Ferrari 599 GTO.
F40 (1992) - £1,000,000
Produced between 1987 and 1992, the Ferrari F40 was an '80s icon. Coining the phrase poster car, young car lovers almost always had an F40 taking pride of place on the bedroom wall growing up as a kid. The legendary boxy shape and large rear spoiler are the textbook supercar look - a legend in automotive history and unsurprisingly hugely sought-after.
F50 (1995) - £1,800,000
After the legendary Ferrari F40 came the successor, the Ferrari F50. Only 349 were made, meaning this particular Ferrari is a lot rarer than the F40, and therefore unsurprisingly more expensive to buy. The F50 features an incredible V12 that was actually developed from an F1 engine.
Enzo (2002) -£1,800,000
After the iconic F40 and unbelievable F50, the next halo Ferrari model had to be something special. Named after the legendary Ferrari founder, Enzo Ferrari, the Ferrari Enzo is the perfect tribute. Only 400 were produced with incredible F1 inspired body styling and design, married with a 6.0-litre V12 engine, propelling the car to 62mph in just over 3 seconds and onto a top speed of 221 mph.
458 (2009) - £120,000
The Ferrari 458 is a bargain when compared to the other Ferrari models featured on Gran Turismo. It doesn't mean it's any less amazing though, taking the heritage and history of its ancestors and ensuring a text book supercar experience.
LaFerrari (2013) - £2,100,000
With a combined output of 950bhp, this ultra-special, state-of-the-art Ferrari is a hybrid-electric hypercar. To go along with the electric motor is a naturally aspirated V12. Performance is mind-bending, with 62mph occurring from a standstill in just 2.4 seconds, and go onto over 217 mph.
Ferrari Total = £17,460,000
500 (1968) - £9,000
The original Fiat 500 is the epitome of Italian cool. Once a common site in the busy streets of Turin, this Italian classic is now much rarer. Of course, the modern remake is a common site on UK roads, but you know what they say, you can't beat the original.
Fiat Total = £9,000
GT40 (1966) - £3,400,000
The car that was built to beat Ferrari at Le Mans - a goal which it achieved, cementing the Ford GT40 as one of the greatest Ford models ever made, if not one of the greatest cars ever made. Road cars are extremely rare and we had to use the Hagerty valuation tool to get an accurate value of this stunning car. Unsurprisingly, the GT40 isn't cheap, but then it was never going to be considering its legendary racing past.
Mustang Mach 1 (1971) - £18,000
Another legend in the Ford model history, make no mistake that the Mustang is a iconic American Muscle Car, and the Mach 1 is a legendary version born in the late '60s. What is quite surprising is the fact you can pick one up for under £20k!
Ford GT (2006) - £230,000
Built to honour the original GT40 - the legendary Le Mans winning racer, the Ford GT kept all the ingredients to make it look uncannily similar. It manages to look modern, whilst not losing any of the original GT40 looks and flair.
F-150 SVT Raptor (2011) - £45,000
Built for the ever-popular US truck market, some have been imported to the UK, and we salute those who like to live their lives at petrol stations filling it up, as it's rather thirsty. They do look mean though, and have unbelievable road presence.
Focus ST (2015) - £14,000
A popular hot hatchback, especially in the UK, and for good reason. The Focus can do it all, and when you give it more power and of course the ST badge, it makes for a textbook hot hatch recipe. With 5-doors and a big boot, who said you have to ditch practicality for fun?
Mustang GT (2015) - £28,000
The latest edition (excluding the face-lift) to the legendary Mustang. It still features a glorious V8 engine and line-lock, for doing smokey burnouts...where safe and legal, of course.
Ford GT (2017) - £1,000,000
The latest generation of the Ford GT - and just like the original GT40, this latest model has won its class at Le Mans, naturally. Originally they cost around £500,000 on launch, but as with most ultra-exotic, sought-after cars, its has appreciated. It is the ultimate Ford, with scissor doors, lightweight materials and unbelievable aero. It is a serious car, at a serious price.
Ford Total = £4,735,000
S800 (1966) - £26,000
A sharply styled '60s sports car from Honda, the S800 went head to head with the likes of the Austin Healey and Triumph Spitfire.
Beat (1991) - £7,000
Rear-wheel drive, mid-engined and two seats - the Honda Beat is another clever and compact kei sports car, launched in the early '90s. It still looks ultra-funky today and can be had for not an awful lot of money.
NSX Type R (1992) - £190,000
A car which received development input from arguably the greatest Formula 1 driver ever; Ayrton Senna. Therefore, you already know the NSX isn't going to be a disappointment, especially in Type R spec too. The Type R version is also more sought-after and rarer, hence the inflated hike in price over a regular NSX.
Civic Type R (EK) (1998) - £8,000
The first Civic Type R - which was based on the 6th Generation of the incredibly popular Honda Civic. With 170 bhp, in the late '90s this was plenty of power for a hot hatch!
Integra Type R (DC2) (1998) - £10,000
The first Integra Type R model, and what a car it was. Famed for its fine handling and sweet VTEC engine, the Integra Type R is a JDM legend. White with a contrasting red interior is the textbook choice, and if you get one, go for the JDM spec with the much more sinister looking headlights, they just look better than the round headlight versions.
S2000 (1999) - £12,000
Just before the millennium Honda unveiled a new convertible sports car - the S2000. It was produced to celebrate Honda's 50th anniversary and values for good examples still remain strong today. Sharp looks feature a long bonnet, in what is still a fairly compact sports car, that can rev to an incredible 9000 RPM.
Honda FIT Hybrid (Jazz) - £11,000
Honda FIT in Japan, Honda Jazz in the UK. This economical compact hatch is another car that won't get petrolheads excited. In real life the Jazz is for the more mature driver, but you just know it will be modified in the game for the fun factor.
Civic Type R (FK2) (2015) - £18,000
Fast forward to 2015 and the Civic Type R became a lot more hardcore. With over 300bhp and looks that certainly make it stand out against the competition, the FK2 takes the safe hot hatch rule book and rips it up.
S660 (2015) - £12,000
Another Japanese kei car, but this is a sports kei car and on looks alone, it looks brilliant and is almost identical in size to the Honda Beat mentioned previously.
NSX (2017) - £90,000
A new generation of the legendary Honda NSX was introduced in 2016. Radical new looks and hybrid power were certainly cutting-edge, as was the car's 573bhp total power output. The legend lives on.
Honda Total = £384,000
Genesis 3.8 Track (2013) - £17,000
Unavailable in the UK, we found one for sale in the U.S quite easily. With Track in the name, it's obviously powerful and with a 3.8-litre V6 engine pushing out almost 350bhp, it is! It takes just 5 seconds to hit 62mph.
Hyundai Total = £17,000
E-Type (1961) - £130,000
The legendary E-Type - furthermore proof that '60s car styling is incredible. And the Jaguar E-Type is one of the most beautiful cars to come from this era, even Enzo Ferrari said so...
F-Type (2014) - £30,000
A modern day E-Type for sure. The Jaguar F-Type is a perfect evolution of the gorgeous Jaguar sports car DNA, and looks sensational. Not as elegant as the legendary E-Type but with more power and a naughtier engine note, the F-Type is a sports car that will bring a smile out of those who drive it, and those who cast their eyes over it.
Jaguar Total = £160,000
X-BOW R (2012) - £55,000
A car built for the racetrack, which is also road legal. It looks as crazy as it seems and has the textbook driver focused recipe comprising of a six-speed manual gearbox and rear-wheel drive. With a smidge under 300bhp and weighing just 790kg, the X-BOW R is a riot on the road for sure.
KTM Total = £55,000
Miura (1967) - £1,000,000
Hailed by many as the first true supercar, the Lamborghini Miura is another classic car legend. Its truly stunning looks are the epitome of '60s design perfection. The car famously appeared in The Italian Job film and today values can command double the £1,000,000 price we found a nice example at, it all depends on condition and history.
Countach LP400 (1974) - £950,000
The original Countach, and proof that Lamborghini are masters of creating cars that look out of this world. Being the original Countach means prices have always been strong, appreciating as expected. And like they say, you can't beat an original...
Countach 25th Anniversary (1988) - £300,000
Perhaps a more familiar example of the Countach, and the one with more aggressive styling, and of course the famous huge rear wing. Made famous also by being plastered all over bedroom walls in the '80s, the Countach is an icon for sure.
Diablo GT (2000) - £690,000
A track oriented version of the Diablo, the GT looks every bit as menacing as it should. The body was made using carbon fibre which was nowhere near as common as it is with today's supercars. Just 83 Lamborghini Diablo GT models were made.
Aventador LP 700-4 (2011) - £170,000
Fast-forward eleven years and Lamborghini are staying true to form, creating epic supercars and hypercars. The Aventador features the classic Lamborghini scissor doors and features a sweet-sounding 6.5-litre 690bhp V12.
Veneno (2014) - £5,000,000
When Lamborghini turned 50, you didn't think they'd mark the occasion lightly, did you? With only 13 made, this ultra-exclusive Lamborghini of epic proportions is a 740bhp hypercar that can hit 221mph and hit 62mph in just 2.9 seconds from a standstill. It looks every bit as unbelievable as a multi-million pound Lamborghini should.
Aventador SV LP 750-4 (2015) - £330,000
Standard Aventador not enough for you? With the Lamborghini Aventador SV you get 740bhp (50 more than the standard Aventador) along with a suitably large rear wing and even more hardcore Lamborghini styling.
Huracan LP 610-4 (2015) - £140,000
The so-called baby Lamborghini. With 610bhp, 0-62mph in just over 3 seconds, we are not sure Lamborghini understand the term 'baby', but we love them for it either way.
Lamborghini Total = £8,580,000
Delta Integrale 'Evoluzione' (1991) - £55,000
The Delta Integrale was a road-going rally car. Which made sense really, as it was created to compete in world rallying, and it did just that winning multiple world rally events. Its boxy arches are forever celebrated and, ensuring this was one of Lancia's greatest cars.
Stratos (1973) - £400,000
Long before the Integrale, the Stratos was again created as a road-legal rally car, again achieving great success in world rallying. Only 492 were made and original cars fetch a pretty penny. Therefore, many kit car companies make kits of this legendary rally winner, so spotting a real one is not easy.
Lancia Total = £455,000
LC500 (2017) - £50,000
Lexus design became a thing of beauty around 2017, launching the stunning LC500. This 2+2 grand tourer is nothing short of stunning -and features a proper amount of GT power, housing a 5-litre naturally aspirated V8, producing a silky 470bhp. Amazingly, it can be purchased for a somewhat reasonable £50,000.
RC F (2014) - £28,000
A Japanese take on the muscle car? With a 5.0-litre naturally-aspirated V8 petrol engine, it has the ingredients to be just that. The RC F is a superb looking car too, without being over the top. Subtle beauty with a hint of muscle for good measure.
Lexus Total = £78,000
GranTurismo S (2008) - £30,000
With a name like GranTurismo, it would of been a crime not to include this particular Maserati. The GranTurismo S is a fantastic looking car, with true sports car performance and pedigree. You can get the Maserati cheaper, but with a car like this, you have to be careful.
Maserati Total = £30,000
Eunos Roadster (1989) - £3,500
The original MX-5, proving massive power wasn't needed if you wanted a sports car that can put a smile on your face. Today you can get an MX-5 for under half of this price, but for an '89 in good condition you'll need around £3.5k.
RX-7 GT-X (FC) (1990) - £11,000
A rotary powered sports car, and the second-generation of the RX-7 sports car. The rotary engine was an interesting concept but it sure worked for Mazda. Typical '90s sports car styling in motion.
RX-7 Sprit R Type A (FD) (2002) - £20,000
The third generation RX-7 is a lot more polished and curvaceous. The iconic wankel engine was still used and most of these cars were heavily tuned - most probably the fault of the Gran Turismo franchise...but that is certainly no bad thing, unless you're a purist of course.
Roadster S (ND) (2015) - £12,000
The MX-5 as it is more commonly known in the UK is still selling rather well, and it's no surprise. The original philosophy of lightweight and just enough power means the MX-5 is still a fine, highly capable sports car. Less is sometimes more.
Atenza Sedan (Mazda 6) (2015) - £10,000
Not the most sought after car in all honesty, but the beauty of Gran Turismo is of course buying regular cars, and tuning them, making them a lot more appealing, and who doesn't love an underdog afterall?
Demio (Mazda 2) (2015) - £9,000
Again, another fairly normal car appearing in a racing game. The Mazda 2 is a good looking supermini, but it won't be setting lap records on the Nurburgring, that's for sure, unless you are a tuning wizard on the game of course, but it's asking a lot from this car.
Mazda Total = £65,500
F1 (1994) - £12,000,000
Once the world's fastest car, the McLaren F1 is certainly one of the most iconic cars ever made. Hypercars today are impressive, but most haven't got nothing on this old school McLaren. Powered by a BMW V12 engine - lined with Gold, the F1 can hit over 240mph, and unbelievably came out back in the early '90s. Because they are so iconic, the F1 takes the crown of being the most expensive on our list.
12C (2010) - £75,000
As McLaren concentrated on Formula 1, McLaren Cars didn't produce another road car until 2010, when the 12C arrived. In true McLaren fashion, the 12C is another ultra-fast car. It's not McLaren F1 fast but with a 0-62mph time stated at 3.3 seconds (some have tested it faster) and a top speed of 205mph it's still incredibly quick. Considering you can pick up a 12C for less than 1% of the value of an F1, it's some what of a bargain, well, for a McLaren anyway.
650S (2014) - £100,000
A logical progression from the 12C, the 650S is a sharper, more polished McLaren and still ridiculously fast, being a tad quicker than its predecessor. Being newer it's also 25% more expensive that the 12C, but again still somewhat of a bargain in comparison to the legendary F1.
McLaren Total = £12,175,000
SLR McLaren (2009) 2006* - £300,000
Gran Turismo Sport features a late 2009 model. We have based our price on the latest model we could find, which is at the top end of the SLR models for sale. This was such a special car, as it was built in partnership with McLaren, who at the time were 40% owned by Mercedes-Benz. The car's design is nothing short of stunning and can hit over 200mph.
SLS AMG (2010) - £160,000
This car is the result of when Mercedes-AMG get to make a car entirely from scratch. It is the first model not to be based on a regular production Mercedes. The result is a beastly sports car, housing a 6.2-litre V8 with 563bhp. The SLS AMG looks phenomenal with its signature 'Gullwing' doors, a nod to the legendary Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing.
A 45 AMG (2013) - £22,000
A hot hatch Mercedes-Benz? The A 45 AMG is just that, and upon launch it was one of the quickest hot hatches on sale. With four-wheel drive, the A 45 AMG could unleash all its power without hesitation too. Standard, the A 45 AMG almost looks subtle, but with the 'Aero Kit', it more than gives clues to its high performance.
AMG GT S (2015) - £66,000
The AMG GT is the second sports car to be developed entirely in house by Mercedes-AMG, thereby not using a Mercedes-Benz model as a basis. In textbook AMG fashion, the AMG GT S is a stunning sports car has been given a number of enhancements over the standard AMG GT both cosmetically and in the engine department. 0-62mph takes just 3.7 seconds, with a top speed of just under 200mph.
Mercedes-Benz Total = £548,000
Mini Cooper S (1965) - £40,000
The original Mini, in Cooper S guise no less. Undoubtedly one of the world's most iconic cars and perhaps the most iconic British car ever made, it's no wonder it made its way onto Gran Turismo. Prices have of course appreciated and decent examples like the one we found exceed £30k easily.
MINI Cooper S (2005) - £4,000
The R53 Mini Cooper S was the first S model to be made since BMW relaunched the MINI brand back in 2000. With a 163bhp supercharged 1.6-litre engine, it featured bags of character and kept the iconic MINI handling, as well as featuring unique retro styling that ensured the MINI return was a sales success for BMW. It seems crazy that you can now pick one up for just 10% of the original Cooper S.
MINI Total = £44,000
GTO Twin Turbo (1991) - £10,000
Pop-up headlights? Check. Twin turbos? Check. Exotic looks? Check. The Mitsubishi GTO Twin Turbo was the epitome of '90s cool and featured everything that was great about Japanese cars from this era.
Lancer EVO IV GSR (1996) - £10,000
Born in the early '90s, the Mitsubishi Lancer EVO has enjoyed ten generations of being a high-powered, all-wheel drive saloon car. Essentially, the EVO is a road-going rally car and this version from '96 received a completely new platform, and featured Active Yaw Control, PIAA front fog lights, OZ Racing wheels and a few more cool enhancements over previous generations.
Lancer EVO Final Edition (2015) - £60,000
We miss the days of the Mitsubishi EVO battling it out with the Subaru Impreza. The EVO Final Edition is a nod to the legendary EVO legacy which began in 1992. The Final Edition came about in 2015 with only 1600 examples being made. With 300 ponies, the EVO was textbook quick and being a final edition of an iconic car, this EVO is unsurprisingly sought after.
Mitsubishi Total = £80,000
Fairlady Z 300ZX (1989) - £8,000
In the UK, we called this the 300ZX, but in its home of Japan it is known as the Fairlady Z. Introduced at the end of the '80s, the 300ZX is a low-slung sports car that looks every bit as late '80s/early '90s as you'd expect. It was fast too, with a 3-litre V6 ensuring the Z was not just all show and no go.
Silvia (1990) - £10,000
The S13 generation of the Nissan Silvia came about in the late '80s and continued Nissan's sports coupe offering. It won the prestigious 'Car of the Year' award upon its introduction in 1989, in its home country of Japan. It was also the first Nissan to feature four-wheel steering.
Skyline GT-R V Spec II R32 (1994) - £35,000
Although the Skyline GT-R was originally born in 1969, the PlayStation era of GT-R was undoubtedly the R32 GT-R from 1989. Thanks to racing success, the R32 inherited the name 'Godzilla', after this was the name it was given to by the local press after the car won the Bathhurst 1000 race. Such an iconic GT-R Skyline means prices have appreciated with a standard, unmolested example becoming near impossible to find, as these cars can be tuned to deliver huge power. How very Gran Turismo.
Skyline GT-R V Spec II R33 (1997) - £34,000
As you'd expect, the successor to the R32 GT-R came with more power and more mind-numbing technology, which helped it produce a sub 8 minute time of the infamous Nürburgring Nordschleife.
Skyline GT-R V Spec II Nur R34 (2002) - £120,000
If you take a look at R34 GT-R prices in comparison to its predecessors, you'll soon realise that the R34 is the unicorn of the lot. Especially this particular version, in which only just over 1000 were made, with only a handful coming to the UK via specialist importers.
Fairlady 350Z (2007) - £11,000
The successor to the Nissan 300ZX, the 350Z came to the UK circa 2003 and was a continuation of the legendary Nissan Z cars, started by Datsun in the '70s.
GT-R Premium Edition (2017) - £60,000
Born in Japan in 2007, the Nissan GT-R quickly developed a reputation for embarrassing more expensive supercars, thanks to its unbelievable performance. The GT-R Premium (2017) houses a 3.8-litre, 542bhp engine cable of destroying the 0-62mph sprint in a phenomenal 2.7 seconds. Top speed is just shy of 200mph.
GT-R Nismo (2017) - £135,000
The fastest Nissan GT-R ever made for road use, and considering the Nissan GT-R is a beast as standard, means the Nismo version is basically a road-legal rocket ship.
Nissan Total = £413,000
Huayra (2013) - £2,100,000
Named after a Quechua wind god, the Pagani Huayra (pronounced 'Why Rah') is an Italian hypercar, built in extremely low numbers since 2012. Since then just over 200 have been made. The car is the definition of hypercar, and looks absolutely incredible. It uses a 6-litre, twin-turbocharged Mercedes-AMG V12, with a handful of special editions being made for some ultra-wealthy clients.
Pagani Total = £2,100,000
208 GTI (2014) - £7,500
Peugeot have a knack for building awesome little hot hatches. You only have to mention the 205 GTI for proof of that. The 208 GTI carries on the legacy, offering a smidge over 200bhp from its 1.6-litre turbocharged engine. That's a lot for a compact car that doesn't really weigh much. The 208 is naturally good looking, as is the case with many French hot hatches.
RCZ GT Line (2015) - £8,500
A stylish French coupe that isn't famed for throwing round a track, which is much better suited to the GTI mentioned previous. However, as an everyday car, the RCZ is striking coupe that looks the part and is more than enough as a sporty daily driver.
Peugeot Total = £16,000
Firebird Trans AM (1978) - £20,000
The '70s gave birth to some iconic things, including Burt Reynolds and his legendary moustache in the film Smokey and the Bandit. But what car did he drive? A Pontiac Trans AM of course, in black with the gold Firebird on the bonnet. '70s movie cars don't really get more iconic, and these cars can be had for somewhat of a reasonable sum, despite the movie connection.
Pontiac Total = £20,000
356 A/1500 GS GT Carrera Speedster (1956) - £995,000
A regular Porsche 356 - the first Porsche sports car usually ranges between £100-300k. However this isn't a regular 356, it's the super rare 356 A/1500 GS GT Carrera Speedster version, and therefore goes for a whole lot more. No surprise as rare Porsche models will always be hugely sought-after, especially fine examples of the first ever Porsche.
911 Carrera RS Clubsport (993) (1995) - £265,000
Porsche RS models are the definition of hardcore, and the 993 Carrera RS Clubsport is no exception. Only 213 examples of the Clubsport were built (according to RM Sotheby's) of this road-legal racing car, as the car was built to comply with homologation rules.
911 Turbo (930) (1981) - £100,000
When we think of Porsche, we think of the 911. After all, it is the world's greatest sports car. The formula has stayed the same since the first 911 from 1963, however the 930 Turbo from '81 was a totally different beast featuring a huge rear wing - another iconic '80s exotic car for sure.
911 GT3 (996) (2001) - £60,000
Introduced two decades ago, the 996 variant of 911 gave the world the very first GT3 - and we continue to thank Porsche for giving us such a delicious sports car. It loves to be revved, handling was razor sharp, and even at first glance looks like a properly sorted 911. Sure, people say they all look similar, but why change such an iconic silhouette?
911 GT3 (997) (2009) - £100,000
If a GT3 RS is too savage for your liking, then the GT3 is more usable everyday, but can still go to the track, put in a epic lap time, and then effortlessly drive you home again in perfect harmony. And if you are after a supreme drivers' car, the textbook answer has always been a GT3.
911 GT3 RS (991) (2016) - £160,000
The 991 GT3 RS is the definition of extreme. It uses some parts from other hardcore Porsche models such as the wheels and tyres from the 918 hypercar, along with having carbon body panels, a magnesium roof and a massive rear wing - ensuring downforce is just 20% behind that of a GT3 racing car. It ensures this Stuttgart beast is most definitely 'Schnell'.
Taycan Turbo S (2019) - £140,000
The newest car in our list, and if you were to buy one from Porsche, you would need around £140,000. To say this is the first ever totally electric Porsche sports car, which offers unbelievable speed, that's not a bad price if you are in the market for such a premium electric sports car, with phenomenal power and performance. And this isn't the entry-level version; this is the range-topping Turbo S. Interesting, as it doesn't feature a turbo, or engine as it's fully electric. The Taycan Turbo S will do around 240 miles on a full charge and hit 62 mph in just 2.8 seconds!
Porsche Total = £1,820,000
Clio V6 (Phase 1) (2000) - £30,000
Bring back the days when manufacturers went a little crazy and made cars like the Clio V6. Renault took the humble Clio, gave it a wide body and fitted a monstrous V6 engine in it. The thing is, it wouldn't fit in the engine bay so they put it in the middle, just behind the driver and passenger. The end result was absurd, but in a good way. It gave this particular Clio an exotic factor which is bizarre and brilliant all in one.
Megane R.S. Trophy (2011) - £17,000
Renault Sport know how to build a proper hot hatch. Their history of creating ultra-popular, capable Clios and Meganes speaks for itself, and the Megane R.S. Trophy is no exception. It is also yet another car in the Gran Turismo Sport list that has Nürburgring Nordschleife fame, smashing the record for front-wheel drive cars when it first came out, cementing its place as a sought-after hot hatch.
Sport Clio R.S. (2015) 2014* - £12,700
The Clio IV RS (200) EDC received a facelift in 2015, but the 2015 Clio in the game is the pre-facelift - as around the world, model years are sometimes slightly different. Anyhow, the Clio IV R.S. did away with the manual gearbox, which was a shame for many R.S. fans, but the automatic box ensures the Clio R.S. isn't slow, and sounds awesome for such a compact hot hatch. It looks great in the iconic liquid yellow too.
Sport Clio R.S. (2016) 2015* - £14,000
So, here we have the facelifted version, which is almost identical. The easiest way to tell the difference is the daytime running lights, in the lower front bumper, which look a lot like a chequered flag, whereas the pre-facelift mentioned above are simply a horizontal light display on each side of the bumper.
Renault Total = £73,700
CTR3 (2007) - £925,000
RUF make cars using unmarked Porsche chassis'. They do look rather similar to Porsche models, but are in fact different. Take the CT3R for example. This is the first car to feature a body designed by RUF, although it does use body styles from the Porsche 911 997 Turbo and Porsche Cayman 987 - which is no bad thing as the end result is epic.
The car is also ridiculously fast with a shade under 700bhp and 62mph dealt with in just over 3 seconds. Rarity and RUF bespoke nature mean the CTR3 is unsurprisingly approaching £1 million.
RUF Total = £925,000
Cobra 427 (1966) - £750,000
Only 348 of these iconic classics were made. They are ridiculously hard to value too, and many, many replicas are available at around £30k due to originals being so expensive. The real value of an original Shelby Cobra 427 is around £750,000, according to trusted insurers Hagerty. Cars are sometimes hard to value as the Shelby Cobra is all about history - cars with sought-after history and originality will always command stronger values.
G.T. 350 (1965) - £287,000
Only 562 of the G.T. 350 were built, and again like the Cobra, there are many replicas out there, using standard Mustangs as a platform with Shelby bits/style added to make you look twice. Original examples again depend on history, like one we found which had gone under the hammer at auction.
Shelby Total = £1,037,000
22B (1998) - £100,000
This isn't your average Impreza, this is the most iconic Impreza ever made. The 22B was built to celebrate a trio of consecutive World Rally Championships, along with celebrating forty years of Subaru - with only 16 built for the UK, it's a unicorn car for sure. And let's not forget, the 22B is a road version of the world rally car Impreza made famous by rally legend Colin McRae.
Impreza WRX Type R STI Version VI (1999) - £18,000
The Type R is another 2-door Impreza which is becoming increasingly sought-after, as later Impreza models were all 4-door. The Type R Impreza came at a time when Subaru and Mitsubishi dominated the World Rally scene thanks to their giant-killing four-wheel drive capabilities. Although nowhere near as rare or special as the 22B, finding a well sorted Type R is not easy.
WRX STI Type S (2014) - £18,000
Sold only in Japan, the Type S was similar to a regular UK STI with the same BHP, only the S had a bit more torque. Being the forth generation model means it has 4-doors rather than the more sporty two door 22B and Type R built previous.
BRZ S (2015) - £15,000
Developed with the Toyota GT86, you may think the BRZ is just a Toyota with a different badge. However in reality Toyota designed the car and the direct injection, whilst Subaru did everything else. No matter the birth, the BRZ S is great to drive thanks to its back to basics approach. The only downside is some believe the BRZ/GT86 needs more power - which is easy enough to do on the game, it's just a little bit more expensive in real life of course.
Total Subaru = £151,000
Swift Sport (2007) - £4,000
£4,000 doesn't buy much these days, but it does buy a great little Suzuki Swift Sport, which is an excellent junior hot hatch. Smart 17-inch alloy wheels are complemented by a subtle bodykit, enhanced dampers and uprated springs. The Swift Sport is underrated, but by being on Gran Turismo Sport surely only raises its profile as a great used buy.
Total Suzuki = £4,000
Model S (2012) - £35,000
Tesla have made the electric car cool. Elon Musk, founder and CEO or Tesla has been key to ensuring Tesla cars are desirable and of course cool. The success lies in the cars offering a decent electrical range, which always seems to be lacking in many electric cars. The cars are also ludicrously fast - and the Tesla Model S is no exception. At £35,000, a used Tesla is a seriously tempting proposition, especially when they are just over £80,000 new.
Tesla Total = £35,000
Sports 800 (1965) - £40,000
Toyota's first production sports car, the Sports 800 was also one of the first cars to feature a targa-style roof. The engine produced a minuscule 45bhp, but its small proportions and light weight (580kg) meant it could deliver over 70mpg. Not bad for a 'sports' car.
2000 GT (1967) - £500,000
Japan's first supercar, and also a Bond car. Although Toyota never actually made a convertible version which appeared in the film. Instead two were specially made for the Bond film 'You Only Live Twice'. This all ties in with the back story of such a cool car. Only 351 were ever made, contributing to its high value.
Sprinter Trueno 1600GT APEX (AE86) (1983) - £15,000
Almost identical to the Corolla Levin, the Sprinter Trueno features the '80s must have - pop-up headlights. The Sprinter Trueno also has a cult status, appearing in the Initial D street racing manga series.
Corolla Levin 1600GT APEX (AE86) (1983) - £13,500
Front-engined, rear wheel drive fifth generation Toyota Corolla. This particular model of the AE86 became popular thanks to its driver focused set up and its ease for modification.
Supra 3.0 GT Turbo (1988) - £7,500
The third generation Supra, another product of the '80s, and therefore another sleek looking sports car with the classic sports car style of the decade - yes, it's that feature again, pop-up headlights.
Supra RZ (1997) - £30,000
The '90s saw the birth of a Japanese legend, the fourth generation Toyota Supra - which ensured more emphasis on serious performance. This was thanks to the iconic engine choices, which included the naturally-aspirated Toyota 2JZ.
MR2 GT-S (1997) - £10,000
Toyota were one of the pioneers of the driver focused mid engine, rear-wheel drive set-up. A set-up more commonly found in supercars. Talking of supercars, the MR2 always looked like a mini exotic. The sleek body, pop-up headlights and bulletproof reliability meant the MR2 was always a popular choice.
Crown Athlete G (2013) - £15,000
If you've probably guessed from the somewhat odd name, we don't sell the Crown Athlete in the UK. However, over in Japan, the Crown Athlete is a pretty sophisticated looking Toyota, with the actual Toyota logo removed and replaced with a Crown logo - if only on the front of the car. Quad pipes give and executive styling give it a somewhat sinister look, along with a front end that looks like many top end Lexus models.
GT86 (2015) - £15,000
In 2012 the latest Toyota sports car was released, the GT86, in a joint venture with Subaru. Although power was seemingly low with a 197bhp boxer engine, it was mounted as far back in the front end as possible for near perfect weight distribution (53% front, 47% rear). Team this with skinny Prius tyres and a purist 6-speed manual transmission, the GT86 soon had people commending it, for its pure, back to basics driving approach.
GT86 GRMN (2016) - £40,000
GRMN - Gazoo Racing Masters of Nürburgring. As you can tell, it is very Japanese, and that's what we love about Japanese cars. The GT86 GRMN got a marginal power increase, as well as shaving 100 lbs over a standard GT86. Changes to the suspension, new 17-inch wheels and non-Prius tyres are used too. A carbon fibre bonnet and plexiglass windows also come on this special Japan-only edition.
GT86 Limited (2016) - £16,000
The GT86 'Limited' is a Japan-only model, with slight enhancements over the regular GT86. Essentially, in the UK it is similar to that of a face-lifted GT86.
Tundra TRD Pro (2019) - £35,000
Another vehicle not sold in the UK. The Tundra is a truck that fits right at home in the US, due to its massive size and chunky looks. A suitably large engine comprising a 5.7-litre V8 is also on hand.
GR Supra RZ (2019) - £54,000
The legend returns after 17-years away. The new Toyota Supra looks incredible and offers high-performance staying true to form. The car looks typically Japanese on the outside, but on the inside it's typically German, as the car shares features with the BMW Z4. One thing is for sure, the Supra is back, and that's got to be a good thing for petrolheads.
Toyota Total = £791,000
Tuscan Speed 6 (2000) - £26,000
TVR have been off the radar for many years, but back in 2000 the Tuscan Speed 6 was flying the flag for unique British sports cars. It was sleek, it was ultra-cool and it came with unique flip paint colour choices. Driving them wasn't easy though, which of course added to the appeal for keen drivers.
TVR Total = £26,000
Sambabus Typ 2 (T1) (1962) - £70,000
Pretty much the coolest MPV/Van ever made. Sometimes called the Camper Van, this practical bus can be converted to be a mobile home from home, as well as being a cool commercial vehicle. But the bus is essentially a practical people mover, but a iconic cool one at that. Prices are based on condition, and vary, but £70k will get you a really nice example. You could even go over 6 figures if you really wanted to...
1200 (Beetle) (1966) - £12,000
An automotive icon, the VW Beetle is one of few cars that is known nearly all over the world, and certainly has an interesting story to it for sure. Famed for its affordability, the VW Beetle was loved by many and even became adopted by the hippy movement, thus adopted as sign of peace and love.
Golf GTI Mk1 (1983) - £14,000
Our third Volkswagen, our third icon. Volkswagen have a knack at producing iconic motors and the Golf GTI is yet another one. It is also one of the first 'hot hatches', or the first proper hot hatchback if we are honest.
Golf GTI Mk7 (2014) - £14,000
Now in its seventh generation, the Golf GTI is still iconic. It has a skill of being able to blend in everywhere and not look out of place. Whether it's the commute, outside a five-star hotel, at a race track, or doing the weekly shop at the local Sainsbury's, the Golf GTI can do it all, and do it all perfectly. It's quick, comfortable, refined and good-looking. You just can't go wrong with a Golf GTI .
Total Volkswagen = £110,000
So, just How much would it cost to purchase a quality example of each road car in the game, in real life? Chances are you have probably skipped to this very section, but with a total of 147 cars from 42 different manufacturers, we can't really blame you. If you however did read it all, maybe you'll have learned a thing or two, or maybe you've realised a dream car of yours maybe more attainable than first thought.
You may even just really fancy having a go on the game yourself or are an avid fan anyway. Either way you'll need a cool £58,961,700 to purchase all 147 cars from the 42 manufacturers.
Toyota offers the most road cars in the game with 13, whilst several manufactures such as Abarth, Bugatti, Citroen, Daihatsu, De Tomaso, Fiat, Hyundai, KTM, Maserati, Pagani, Pontiac, RUF, Suzuki, Tesla and TVR offer just 1 car.
