Hi Guys,
I collect Gran Turismo builds and have published the GT3 Store Demo Vol.1 (PCPX-96311) and the GT5 UK 1609 Build. I also captured these builds on real hardware and publish the videos on Youtube. I want to create some sort of archive of Gran Turismo builds on Youtube.

DUMPED SPECIAL BUILDS (Publicly available)

There are some interesting builds of Gran Turismo Concept that have already been dumped to the public. I have published videos of these builds, which I would like to present to you. I am not allowed to share download links for the builds, otherwise I will violate the guidelines of GTP. (Even if it is a demo build) But the builds are very easy to find

Gran Turismo Concept 2001 Tokyo Store Demo Disc | PCPX-96624 | Dec 9, 2001 (Thanks to GT.Collector, for providing the dump)

NOTE: No video, because the store demo is exactly the same version as the retail version from Tokyo 2001

Gran Turismo Concept Copen Special Edition | SCPM-85301 | Mar 25, 2002 (My Dump)

Gran Turismo Concept - Nissan 350Z Edition | SCUS-97219 | May 1, 2002 (Dumper Unknow)

Gran Turismo Concept Mitsubishi Airtrek Turbo Special Edition | PAPX-90504 | May 16, 2002 (Thanks to @Double H for providing the dump)

Gran Turismo Nissan Micra Edition | SCED-51352 | Oct 4, 2002 (Thanks to GT.Collector, for providing the dump)



UNDUMPED SPECIAL BUILDS (Not publicly available)

There are at least three other builds of GTC that are undumped, but may have some GT collectors. There are just a few screenshots of them.

Gran Turismo 4: LUPO CUP Training 1 & 2 (April 2003 Builds) | PAPX-90508 & ????????
NOTE: First appearance of Tsukuba and Fuji 90s on the GT series with GT3 hud. No Videos exist

UNKNOWN SPECIAL BUILDS
there are other builds that we don't know about at all. PD created a list called "Notable Gran Turismo Collaborations". In this list you can see all demos that were presented between 2000-2008. Below you can see an excerpt with all GTC demo builds. Some builds are unknown and no information can be found on the internet. I have marked these in yellow

These demo builds are:
2001 October: 東京モーターショーで日産GT-Rコンセプト デモ版を公開 | "Nissan GT-R Concept" Tokyo Motorshow Demo Version
2001 October: 東京モーターショーでホンダ デュアルノート デモ版を公開 | "Honda DUALNOTE" Tokyo Motorshow Demo Version
2001 October: 東京モーターショーでトヨタ pod デモ版を公開 | "Toyota pod" Tokyo Motorshow Demo Version
2001 October: 東京モーターショーでスズキ GSX-R/4 デモ版を公開 | "Suzuki GSX-R/4" Tokyo Motorshow Demo Version
2002 December: ボローニャ カーショーでALFA ROMEO 147GTA デモ版を公開 | "ALFA ROMEO 147GTA" Special Edition Demo : Torino Motorshow

I don't think a GT collector has these builds. Probably only Sony and PD own these builds and will probably never own anyone outside of the named companies...

... but never say never ;)



My question. Does a collector have one or more of the missing builds and could send me these dumps so that I can make gameplay videos of them and then "archive" them on Youtube? These builds are difficult to get or very expensive. It would be an incredible relief to have these treasures. Please contact me privately. Unfortunately, I cannot offer any money because I only do as a hobby and I offer my dumps for free.

Hi Guys,
I collect Gran Turismo builds and have...

Hey, I'm working on a pretty major mod for GT3, so I have to ask you; Could you contact me if you ever find/receive a new demo/proto of PS2-era GT's (GT3 beta, GT3, GTC, GT4P, GT4) as they can very likely contain data, that could be used for the mod? This includes new cars, courses etc.
Here's my channel, where you can see a couple of teasers for the mod in progress.

I think the lost GTC builds are the most important ones to find, as they could still have a GT3-style data format, which would mean that the cars have their night/eve models as well, which GT4P builds lacked, thus porting GT4P cars to GT3 can't be done properly at the moment.

Hi!
This is a very informative post. Thanks to pez2k I know the existence of these Gran Turismo Concept builds:

- Nissan GT-R Concept Tokyo Motorshow Demo Version
- Honda Dualnote Tokyo Motorshow Demo Version
- Toyota pod Tokyo Motorshow Demo Version
- Suzuki GSX-R/4 Tokyo Motorshow Demo Version
- Alfa Romeo 147GTA Special Edition Demo: Torino

Also, there is a little wrong information about the Lupo Training Version. There was two versions: the first had Tsukuba and other one had Fuji Speedway

Great news!
Big thanks to GT.Collector, who dumped the GTC 2001 Tokyo Store Demo Disc (PCPX-96624) for us. It turns out that the store demo is exactly the same version as the retail version from Tokyo 2001.

Here A Scan of the disc!

I'm in contact with another GT Collector. Another build is coming soon, stay tuned! :)
