First earn the A, B, International A, B, & C Licenses. The Super License
will now be available.
Event Synthesizer Race
After earning the Super License (see above), you will be able to unlock the
Event Synthesizer Race.
This game is very different than GT, you don't win Cups anymore, you have to
race tracks one by one. Also, most of the races are limited to a certain HP.
The first races you should take are the Sunday Cup and the Clubman Cup. Buy
a used R32 Skyline and tune it enough to have a lot of HP. Race all of the
races and keep gaining money.
Money and Cars
First, you must have at least 300,000 now and an I-A license. Buy a
Mitsubishi 3000GT MR-Twin Turbo and tune it to the max. Go to Special Events
and enter the No#1 Tuned Turbo Car World Cup. All the races here pay 50,000,
but are quite hard. Pick the one with the Test Course. The cars here are
unforgiving so make sure you tune your car to go to at least 210 MPH. Race 3
consecutive times and you will win the second ultimate car the HKS R33 Drag.
Which sells for 250,000.
Ultimate Driving Machines
After you have established at least 4 million, buy the Suzuki Escudo Pikes
Peak Version which sells for 2,000,000.This car is monstrously powerful and
quite easy to handle at high speeds. If you drive well enough, you can race
any race and defeat all your opponents. This car will whip the competition
in the GT World Cup so have fun.
Win the 4WD Challenge at Laguna Seca to receive a 618 hp custom car. Take
that car to the Tuned-Turbo Challenge and enter the Test-Track race. You
will win $50,000 and a car worth $30,000 for each 3-lap race that is won.
The secret to winning on the Test-Track is in the corners. Stay smooth and
off the walls/grass to pass the faster cars. Do not let them block your car,
and drive defensively once in the lead. You will also need licenses to race.
Get a brand new Nissan
Skyline GT-R Vspec (R34.J) '99 and tune it to the max. Then, get an
International A licensee. Go to Special Events, go to Line Up 4, choose
Tuned Turbo Car No.1 Race at the Test Course. Finish in first place to get
$50,000 and a Skyline that is worth $30,000. Repeat this until you win a
250,000 Mine's HKS 180 SX (racing modified). Repeat again until you win a
13,750 Mines Lancer V (racing modified). Note: You do not have to use a
Nissan Skyline, just a powerful and fast car.
to get a viper GTS-R
Start game and win enough to get a car with 591 horsepower and then go to
endurance races and go to Apricot Hill 200km. You must have International B
licence and win 1st place and you will receive $500,000 and the viper GTR.
At the main menu on simulation mode go to the last selection (Transfer or
Communication). You can load your licenses from the original Gran Turismo
first place in arcade mode
Purchase a "special" model car on the simulation mode disc, which
costs approximately 500,000 to 1,000,000 credits. Save the game. On the
arcade disc, choose to load the simulation mode game. When choosing the
class of car in a race, choose "home garage" and use your new car.
If you are having trouble getting past the License tests, watch the
demonstrations. These demos are much better than the ones in GT so watch the
speed and the turning and braking times. This should make your license woes
Your Cash and Garage Space
It is understood that your garage in Gran Turismo 2 only holds 100 cars at a
time. Lets say you have 100 cars and $10 million credits Save your game play
twice on two different memory cards. Use one card as your primary garage and
one as your secondary garage. Now take the first card and sell off all the
lower cars then safe again. Now take the secondary card , load up and sell
all the higher cars then safe again on the secondary card. Keep your best
race cars on the primary and all others on the secondary. You have now
double your garage space to 200 and have doubled your credits with 10
million in each , plus what you got for the sold cars for a total credits of
20 million plus whatever earned on sold cars, split between the two garages.
If you need to transfer a car from one garage to the other, use the data
transfer mode off the main menu by buying the cars off each other You will
never lose the money for you own both garages. When one garage fills up, do
HP in HP limited races
On the simulation disc you can use a car with up to 5 more HP on the races
(with limited HP). Go buy a item such as race mufflers or computer, but do
not equip them on the car. Before the race go into settings and equip the
item. The computer will allow around 5 HP more than posted.
the elusive Lancia Stratos
To get the rare and very futuristic looking Stratos, despite that it was
made in the 80's, you must beat the 200KM Apricot Hill Endurance Race. You
may also get a [R]Viper GTS-R.
If you haven't already, get a good used car to start with, win a few of the
easy $3000 and $4000 races and soup up your car so that it runs at just
under 295 Horses. I chose the '94 Mitsubishi FTO GR(J), won some of the easy
special events and souped it up a bit. Once you have a semi-decent car, and
after you have aquired your B licence, heed back over to the Special Events
and enter the FF Challenge. From there, choose the Tahifi Road Race (A purse
of $5000 if you win). Now, you'll have to race this several times, but if
you keep winning, once you get around $40K saved, you will notice you get a
"Bonus Car" awarded which is Mugen Accord SIR-T(J). This car can
sell for about $7000. If you race the same race again and win, you get
ANOTHER one. Keep on racing and collecting these cars.. that makes a total
purse of about $12000 per race which ain't to bad for a 2 lap "B"
license race. It may help you build up some cash to totaaly supe up your old
car, or buy that elusive new car you have always dreamed of.
Race and win the last of the "Midship Challenge" races (Special
Events - first page, bottom left corner - the last race with a 591 hp limit)
with any high powered car of the "MR" type. You'll get a [R]GT40
Race Car. If you enter the same race once more with this new car of yours,
you'll notice that you can't be beaten (Well, almost. Strictly speaking, you
can loose with any car).
The beauty of this scheme is
that, as I've explained, once you've won the race once, you're sure to be
able to win again. And you'll get a new [R]GT40 Race Car every time. Did I
mention that the race is only 2 laps? And that a [R]GT40 Race Car sells for
250,000? You see my point, I'm sure.
First get your international B license. Then buy an Audi S4 and max it out.
Make sure you only have the stage 3 turbo equipped. The stage 3 turbo gives
your car 534hp. Then go to the GT Euro League. All of these races are a
591hp limitation so you will be alright. There are three races and each one
gives you 10000 for first. Since the Audi is 4wd you should have no trouble
winning. As you win each one you recieve a race vehicle ie: Zexel Skyline.
Each vehicle is worth 250,000 credits when sold. Each race is three laps but
if you win all three and sell the cars, you can make 780,000 credits in one
a lot of money
Go to race with a rally car, go to rally events and choose tahiti road. Then
you take the 2nd race mode and you dont have to take a really fast car but
you always win. You get the price of 10.000 every time you race (be sure you
have dirt tires).
Cash for real
First go buy the Suzuki Escudo Pikes Peak Version if you haven't already
bought. Then go to the GT all stars Red Rock Valley race. When you win the
race you get 50,000 credits.the car you get is a TVR speed 1 which is worth
500,000 keep on repeating and win some big bucks.
Get a decent car with under 390HP, I chose a Chevrolet Camaro SS 97' with
311HP then race it in the Wagon Showdown in the super speedway race. Its
easy to win and as well as the $6000 prize, you get a Mugen Accord Wagon
worth $6250, making a total of $12250 for a race which should take under 2
I used the RUF CTR2 on the Grand Touring Car Trophy Entry, Midfield raceway.
For first place you will receive $30 000 plus a car worth $250 000. In about
3 or 4 of these race you will get well over $1.000.000.
Start the arcade game. Goto to time trial. Select "Motorsportsland"
(it doesn´t matter if you select reverse). Start driving the track and you
will notice a small hill in the left side of the road (if you selected
reverse it will be on your right). Stop your car to the U-bend. Accelerate
towards the hill so that the "wrong way" sing appears (if you
selected reverse the "wrong way" sign will not appear). You must
have 50 mph speed (app. 80 kph). Repeat this few times and your car will go
trough the hill instead going over it. The "out of course" sign
appears. Now you can drive as fast as the car allows you to, there are no
walls so you can drive off the screen. My personal record is 312 mph (app.
money AND cars
First, Buy a cheap 207hp used car. Go to the special events. then go to
historic car cup. Race at Tahiti road. Finish first ten times and get a free
car. Sell all ten free cars and you should end up with around $100,000.
Get 100,000 credits and go to the Mitsubishi part of the east city. Buy a
3000GT VR-4 Turbo. Go to tune and go strait to Turbo and get turbo kits. Go
strait to stage 4 and buy it. Your horse power will go up to around 620hp.
Then, go to Special Events Races. Go all the way over to the Tuned Turbo Car
NO.1 Cup. Go to the test course, finish first twice and you now get 100,000
credits. NOTE: to get the 100,000 credits to start with, Follow "Easy
Money and Cars."
Something About the Licenses
Have you done all the races and still the game says your completion is about
98%? Well, the license tests count as races too. It sound impossible, but
you must get gold for every license. you don't get money, but you win some
excellent race cars (like a FTO LM edition, Chaser LM edition, Del Sol LM
edition, and two others) When finished, the game should have a 100%
Note: Earlier versions of the game have all gold for every license to unlock
Drag Racing, found after the Event Generator option at the GT series.
to get 550,000 In 5 minutes
First, you must have the crotch rocket also known as the Escudo and an IA
license. Enter the All-Pro Special Event and go to the Red Rock Valley race.
Next, before the race go to car settings. Lower the Escudo as far as it will
go, and drop the suspension rate between 4.0 and 8.0 for each wheel. Also,
put the downforce to 53 in the front and 85 in the back. It sounds
insignificant, but this helps the car blast around the first hairpin at 220+
mph, warning, the Escudo will slam into the wall, dropping the speed to
about 160-180, and may induce a spin. Another note. if you're racing against
a Lister Storm, make sure you don't rear-end it. It is as slow as molasses
compared to you. After the race, you win a TVR Speed 12 (which sells for
500,000) which you can fully upgrade to annihilate any race with an
unlimited HP requirement.
My personal record for Red
Rock Valley is firstname.lastname@example.org mph for the lap record and 4min, 52.211 for the
You don't have to sell the TVR Speed 12! Instead you can use it to win the
N/A Tuned races easily. the cars are horribly slow compared the Speed 12.
(for example, you have 807 HP to the rear wheels, or about 3X as much power
they have). The races pay 50,000 a pop, plus about 11,000 for the cars. A
note about the Speed 12, downforce, zero camber, and big gears are its and
your friend.put a lot of downforce, tire on the road, and top end to keep
the car rear in check.
Are For Dirt
You don't need an Escudo
for super speed and road race dominance. Go to Toyota and buy the GT-One
Road Version. Tune it to the max. You now have a 975 HP Japanese car that
can smoke an Escudo in top speed and handling (the escudo's handling can be
unpredictable, while the GT-One drives like a 4WD car; very stable) Also,
the best part, you save over 600,000 credits!
It seems the rally car all have 295 HP. Not! for example. Buy a
"295" HP Subaru Rally Car, then check you garage. choose the
Subaru. To your delight the car now produces over 400 HP! essentially every
rally car (and new car for that matter) increases in HP after purchase
an 101 % effort
You may often read that one of gt2's glitches is that you cant complete
100%, untrue. If you have successfully completed all the races, including
the manufacturers cups, won all the races from easy to expert on arcade mode
disc, and also you must have obtained all the licences inc special you
should be sitting at about 98 %. Now save and restart the Playstation, when
it asks you which language click German/Deutch, this changes Vauxhall
dealership to Opel, now simply complete the manufactures cup and you should
have over 100%.
On both the Laguna Seca and Motor Sports World tracks you can drive in an
open void. To do this on Laguna Seca head down the home straight coming up
to the hairpin, head straight towards the thin strip of concrete and hit the
wall about where the blue and white tyres meet the wall, if done right you
should be able to worm your way left and right until you are off the track
completely. But if you want to get a 500 km top speed I suggest doing it on
the Motor Sports track. Do a lap and when coming to the last hairpin cut it
on the grass and head down the home straight, it should come up with
"wrong way' or 'off course' head straight at the wall at the end of the
straight and you should go right through it.
135,000 in one race
First you need a 394 hp car then you need to go to 80s sports car cup. Then
you go to Tahiti road and get 1st place. You will get a car worth 125,000
and all you have to do is get a couple more cars and you will have
