Can anyone tell me what track that is in the background? I thought it was maybe the old Super Speedway but I'm not sure.

Beta HUD, the info on the top right uses a different font, and the position is missing the shadow effect behind it.

It seems Polyphony took some shots from the NTSC-J version of the game, as the description of the highlighted game mode is in Japanese, and "Clear Status" is replaced with "Goodies".

Super Speedway's demo video was different, and the track name is written in a different font on the menu.

I have never seen a Retry button in the game.

Beta Sim / GT Mode menu. It had some extra text underneath the large "GRAN TURISMO MODE", and it also originally said "welcome to the GRAN TURISMO MODE", while in the final the "welcome to" part was removed.

Beta Go Race icon. The text underneath the icon was originally black, but was changed.

Beta Go Race screen, just thought I would show this off since I think it looks weird without any of the leagues being highlighted, and none of the images appearing next to the league list. Also, notice how "Professional League" is simply called "Pro League" here...
I also found some weird things in the credits...

The Honda Prelude is listed in Honda, a car that I don't recall being in GT3. Could it have appeared at one point?

It appears there were going to be a lot more Shelbys in GT3 than what we got...

In Toyota, "Corolla" is listed... I've never seen any shape or form of Corolla in GT3. However, the Sprinter Trueno, which is basically the Corolla Levin's twin brother, does appear. So was the Corolla Levin, likely the AE86 model, meant to appear?

In Vauxhall / Opel, a "Vectra" is listed... In GT2, a Vectra does appear, so does this mean that Vectra was planned to return for GT3?
Bonus: I also found out what that Data Logger thingy is called in the US version... Analyzer!

Tanner D92 has ripped the menu background videos from the OPS2M demo.
I have never seen that first set of clips in any demo, however the rest are the normal videos you see on the car and track selection screens. For some reason, the car selection background has two videos, one looks more squished than the other.
Just a correction: The hidden 156 Touring Car isn't the Maxiturismo, but an ETCC/WTCC car.
Actually, it's neither ETCC or WTCC, it's Romana Bernardoni's car from the 2000 European Super Touring Cup. Just a normal Class 2 car in specs.Noted.
They didn't even get in legal trouble by sneaking a Porsche, a small tobacco promo in a test car wouldn't hurt...Holy crap, I can't believe they got away with using the West cigarettes logo on the McLarens.
Well...I guess the McLarens didn't reach consumers, so I guess that's why they could do it.
975kg excluding driver, 1055kg including driver, 2.0l i4 pushing out around 300bhp at 8250rpm.
