All The Free Prize Cars in Gran Turismo 7

With credits seemingly a little on the scarce side in Gran Turismo 7, and more things than ever to spend them on, finding an efficient way to fill up your dream garage has never been more important.

The 424-car launch day roster of GT7 includes cars from more than 90 years of motoring, and some stretch into the eight-figure price range (and may vary, day to day). That means players won’t want to be spending too much money on the more ordinary fare, especially with tuning, painting, wheels, and body upgrades all costing a packet (as will the optional credit top-up microtransactions).

Still, you’ll need plenty of cars to be in with a fighting chance in Daily Races and, when it arrives at the end of March, the official championships.

Fortunately, the single-player mode is not shy about throwing cars at you over the course of your progress. In total it’s possible to pick up almost 100 unique cars completely free, as prizes for your achievements and racing skills — or nearly a quarter of the car list.

To save you from splashing out on cars you’ll get without wasting a single credit, we’ve put together this “small” guide to all the cars GT7 gives you for free.

GT Cafe

The overwhelming majority of the cars given away as prizes in GT7 come from the GT Cafe.

In several of the “Menu Book” missions, the Cafe’s owner “Luca” will set you the task of collecting cars of a certain type. To achieve this he’ll give you access to various races and championships which give you most of the cars you’ll need.

There are occasions where you will receive a car as a bonus for completing a championship, choosing one of three cards (laid face down, of course) to pick your reward. In most cases the others will all come from placing in the top three finishers of a specific race, but there are five occasions where a car only appears as a prize in that pack. Cards are only awarded the first time you successfully complete the championship.

Also note that any car you have previously bought or won before or during its corresponding Menu Book won’t appear with a compass pointer, but you can still win it as a duplicate prize car.

Aside from having to pick buy one of the three Menu Book 1 starter cars from the Used Cars dealership to get the game underway, and the purchase of a truck for Menu Book 26 (we’d recommend the Toyota Tundra, as you’ll subsequently win the Ford F-150) you’ll be able to complete this list without buying any additional vehicles.

License Center

There’s a total of 15 cars available in the License Center, with ten through the normal license — two for each of the five grades — and five for the Master License. That said, they’re not entirely easy to pick up!

You’ll get a free car if you manage to achieve at least a bronze time on each of the ten tests within each normal license grade, with an additional car for passing all ten with a gold time. That means that if you score gold first time on all the tests, you’ll automatically get both cars.

One oddity on the list is the National B car for bronzes. It also appears as a prize in an early GT Cafe event, which means it’s possible to own two of them or, by completing your license first, skip out the race in which you’d need to win it.

The License Center was expanded in November 2023 to include a new Master License section with five grades and five further prize cars — one for all-gold at each grade. You will need to complete the basic licenses first, at least to Bronze, to gain access to these.

  • National B License, Bronze – Renault Clio RS220 Trophy ’16
  • National B License, Gold – Mitsubishi GTO Twin Turbo ’91
  • National A License, Bronze – Volkswagen Scirocco R ’10
  • National A License, Gold – Subaru BRZ STI Sport ’18
  • International B License, Bronze – Toyota GR Supra Race Car Gr.4 ’19
  • International B License, Gold – Porsche Taycan Turbo S ’19
  • International A License, Bronze – Toyota 86 Gr.B Rally Car
  • International A License, Gold – Alpine A110
  • Super License, Bronze – Audi R8 LMS Evo ’19
  • Super License, Gold – Gran Turismo Red Bull X2019 Competition
  • Master National B License, Gold – Ford 1932 Roadster ’63
  • Master National A License, Gold – Mercedes AMG GT Black Series ’20
  • Master International B License, Gold – Lexus LFA ’10
  • Master International A License, Gold – Porsche 962C ’88
  • Master Super License, Gold – McLaren MP4/4 ’88

Missions

As with the License Center, there’s a pair of cars available as prizes for completing each block of missions. You’ll pick up one for passing all eight missions within a set with at least a bronze, and an extra car for beating the gold marker in all eight.

These are also not particularly easy feats, as the missions get progressively harder until the final group of the events at launch — The Sun Also Rises — which is set as a “five chilli” event; that’s broadly equivalent to Professional difficulty in previous GT games.

More Missions are set to come through game updates, with The Human Comedy already added post-launch, so we’ll likely see more bonus cars added to this list in the future.

  • The Magic Mountain, Bronze – Volkswagen Sambabus Typ 2 ’62
  • The Magic Mountain, Gold – Jeep Willys MB ’45
  • Beyond the Horizon, Bronze – Honda Civic (FK8) Type R LE ’20
  • Beyond the Horizon, Gold – Mazda RX-7 (FC) GT-X ’90
