    No. It's credits, not dollars, and you can buy the 15,000,000cr Shelby Cobra Daytona.

    Interestingly in the rival cars section, the AI can drive some much cheaper cars that aren't permitted for the player like the C3 Corvette, Mustang Mach and 2000GT.

    The only one not available to race is the 15 million credit Lamborghini because it's not in the Gr.x class. But Famine is right the 15 mill Daytona is the cheapest one to enter with.

    You will a very difficult time beating the Ferrari 330 at Monza so you will need to upgrade the power on that Daytona as well.

    I was lucky enough to get the XJ13 in the wheel of Fortune a while back. Hopefully it'll get the job done.

    I think hardest is Mulsane straight, the 330 is there a beast if you don't have it...

    It does easily on Monza without tuning.

    on La Sarthe i had to maximize aerodynamics and use the hard/soft tire combination...still easy

    So the cars take a unskillful, mind numbing grind to unlock, but once you’ve put in enough “work” (read: rubber bands) to unlock them, the actual races you can do with them are super easy.

    Yup, sounds about right.

    When I clicked on it, it allowed a lot of cars.. there’s just a age and N400 class restriction.

    That's the wrong one. There's one in Amateur that's N Class and one in Professional for the Gr.X ones.

    Guess I'll never win those races then...:indiff:
    And once again, what the hell PD!? The 15-20Mio. price-tags itself are outrageous enough, but locking people out of races because of this? I havent even done the F1 races, because I couldnt save up to 2Mio. :scared::lol:

    I have a Ferrari 330 P4, which I won, so will be doing those events. However, if I didn't own the Ferrari I would never get to try those races as I will never build up Cr20m for a car. But that's OK with me as I don't see the problem with a rare prestigious event as it makes it feel special should you be lucky enough to be able to afford your own entry car.

    Personally not losing out as I don't care for single player on a multiplayer game. But for those hours do, bummer.

    If you can't get a car for this event, consider just ignoring it. You won't get anything unique for completing GT League - nether trophies nor prize cars.

    My mind immediately goes to thinking that this is a way for PD to sell credits ever since they introduced microtransactions.

    There you go, PD. My only hope is to get one of these cars in the Daily Russian Roulette, because I won't grind for them.
    Free DLC my :censored:.

    Especially considering all of those cars are available in GT6. So its like a total waste.

    Yeah better graphics and sound blah blah. I can only grind to 6 million credits. No more, no time and motivation to do so.

    Also rather insulting that the Shelby Daytona in GTSport are 3.5x more expensive than GT6. No joke.

    Some of us like to complete every event. And now the only way we have of completing everything is by having a lot of luck or making some ridiculous grinding.

    ...MTX can't help you here, those cars are in its own league...

    BTW, I was choosing between 5 cars, and used either 330 or GT. Would be nice to get those cars in their own group now...

    One more thing, this is new meta for grinding, 7minutes for 240k credits... Even beats BMB Premium Longue, although you need a 20mils car for it :)
    But considering races are 7 minutes long and there is much less stress regarding power and for clean race it is easier here to get one...

    The 330 is definitely the fastest but I think the Ferrari 250 GTO is absolutely the most fun to drive.

    For GT League
    Upgrade the power to max then upgrade weight to drop it and then put a good tune on it and it will win every race in GT league.
    I really want the new Daytona and I think it could possibly be the best one of them all.

    You'd have thought they'd at least allow the GT40 MkI for this event.... :indiff:

    Daytona cannot win sadly, especially if 330p is on pole... I mean, it could potentially win but it's pace is far off 330 and Jag.

    Fastes opponent that I had was driving 330p4 and did race in ~6:48.




    Clean times that I got with each car max tuned and with setup

    330p4 ~3:19
    Mark IV ~3:21
    XJ13 ~3:23
    Cobra Daytona Coupe ~3:38
    250GTO ~3:42
