An enthusiast’s dream

The race cars featured in Gran Turismo Sport are classified into categories based on real-world motorsports and tweaked to provide equal conditions during competition. For example, this means that if you’ve always wanted to see GT3 versions of your favourite cars compete with others on the track, this is the place to be. 

Vision Gran Turismo

Want to see the world’s premier auto makers, such as Bugatti, Peugeot and Volkswagen, design their own fantasy machines? We can go one better – Vision Gran Turismo not only lets you see these wondrous cars come to life, you can also race them in-game.


Explore the car classes

Car category showroom

From commercial vehicles to concept and race cars – each of the automobiles in GT Sport can be divided into six categories. 


Stock condition vehicles including commercially sold automobiles and concept cars. This category is subdivided from the N100 to N1000 class, according to engine power.


Race cars with basic modifications, including the addition of safety equipment and weight reduction. These are equivalent to the real world FIA GT4 Class cars.


Race vehicles with full race modifications, including wider bodies and aerodynamics improvements. These are equivalent to the real world FIA GT3 Class.


These are ultra-high performance racing vehicles with specially developed bodies and engines. This category includes real world prototype sportscars.


These are extreme vehicles that do not fit in any existing race category.


These are rally cars modified for driving on dirt, with reinforced suspension and higher ride heights.


Porsche Cayman GT4 Clubsport

As an addition to the 2nd generation model of the Cayman type 981C engine, this high performance racer is powered by the 3.8L horizontally opposed six cylinder engine of the Porsche 911 Carrera S. Many parts, such as the front suspension and brake system, are also carried over from the 911 GT3. 

Toyota TS050 - Hybrid (Toyota Gazoo Racing)

Toyota’s direct rival to the Porsche 919, this Prototype car boasts a hybrid powertrain combined with a turbocharged 2.4 litre direct injection V6 with a Motor Generator Unit (MGU). The TS050’s settings for its inclusion in GT Sport were chosen by Kamui Kobayashi, the driver who set the new course record at the real life Le Mans, using this car.

Lexus LC500 / (N500 engine power)

Presented in 2017, the Lexus’ beautiful modern coupe features flowing lines emerging from its elegant front fascia. The powertrain consists of a five litre V8 engine producing 477ps, combined with a direct shift 10-speed automatic transmission – the first for any passenger car to date. 

Peugeot Vision Gran Turismo

This impressive machine was born from the ‘Vision Gran Turismo’ project, in which various automobile manufacturers around the world designed a sports car for the series. The monolithic shape, which only stands 1.04m above ground, creates a look that differs greatly from other sports cars, while this competition model is modified specifically for Gr. 3 category racing.

Honda Project 2&4 powered by RC213V

Refusing to be defined by any existing race category, this new driving experience is a collaborative effort between the Honda Design Team and Gran Turismo. Fusing motorcycle and car, its power to weight ratio is an impressive 1ps:1.88kg, with an aluminium-carbon composite frame powered by the Honda RC213V-S motorcycle’s compact V4 engine.
