Gran Turismo 7: Slowest Cars

Here's your list of the slowest cars in Gran Turismo 7.


“The Real Driving Simulator” Gran Turismo has always been about winning races to gain credits and cars. Generally, this means your aim is to obtain the fastest cars of each category to emerge victorious in all races. However, there are also some rather slow cars in Gran Turismo 7, generally there as pieces of history and with their own races.

The list below will be based purely on horsepower. While horsepower isn’t everything when it comes to the speed of cars, it plays a substantial role. Note that one entry on this list is actually rather quick for its class, but pales in comparison to most cars in the game.


Another important note that is a slight change to Gran Turismo 7 from previous editions: Brand Central is for vehicles produced this century (2000-present). To purchase vehicles from 1999 and prior, you must rely on the rotation in Used Cars.

If you want to gain the slowest cars in the game, read below. They will be listed with their model names and horsepower (HP) to indicate just how little power they possess.

Why would I want to purchase and win slow cars?

There are interconnected reasons. One, slower cars tend to be the cheapest in the game. If you’re wanting to quickly build up your collector level to unlock more aspects of Gran Turismo 7, then purchasing many slow cars would be a quick way to do this.

Two, there are a few trophies for you trophy hunters out there related to the amount of cars in your Garage (two trophies) and one for purchasing the same car ten times. If you want any of the three trophies, saving credits by purchasing the cheapest cars will be the quickest way to pop the trophies.


A third less important reason is that usually, these cars will are specifically for cups and races involving them. However, with the change to Gran Turismo 7’s layout and progression system, this doesn’t come into play if you streamline Luca’s missions from the Café.

Lastly, if you’re a completionist, then your goal is to have every vehicle in the game. As of the game’ release weekend, the Vehicle Registry has a total of 424 cars to register.

1. 500 F ’68 (16 HP)

Make: Fiat
Country: Italy
Price: Variable (Used Cars rotation)
Performance Points: 81.16


This speedster roars into the top spot with 16 total horsepower. The 1968 500 F compact car, as with many in Europe, was made to navigate the narrow and smaller streets compared to the more wide and bigger streets in the United States. As such, it was not made for high speeds and mainly for local use.

You will obtain the 500 F as part of completing Menu Book 3: European Classic Compacts from Luca in the Café. If you put off the Café missions, the car can be purchased from the Used Cars menu on the World Map. However, Used Cars has a rotation of cars and prices, so it may not be there when you access the menu. In this case, come back the next day to see if it’s in the rotation.

2. 1200 ’66 (33 HP)

Make: Volkswagen
Country: Germany
Price: Variable (Used Cars rotation)
Performance Points: 177.02

The 1200 became a collector’s and auto enthusiast’s since its release worldwide under its more popular and colloquial name, the Beetle The 1200 might be iconic, but it’s also slow.

It more than doubles the horsepower of the 1968 Fiat 500 F, but still doesn’t make it to even 35 horsepower. In previous editions of Gran Turismo, one of the more riveting – and slow – sets of races involved both the 1200 and the next entry on this list.

Menu Book 3 and its collection of cars.

You will obtain the 1200 as part of completing Menu Book 3: European Classic Compacts from Luca in the Café. If you put off the Café missions, the car can be purchased from the Used Cars menu on the World Map. However, Used Cars has a rotation of cars and prices, so it may not be there when you access the menu. In this case, come back the next day to see if it’s in the rotation.

3. typ2(T1) SambaBus ’62 (33 HP)

Make: Volkswagen
Country: Germany
Price: Variable (Used Cars rotation)
Performance Points: 209

The other iconic Volkswagen on this list, the SambaBus has a distinct body (like the 1200). While distinct, it doesn’t make for the best turning radius. Then again, with only 33 horsepower, it’s not as if the vehicle can take fast, sharp corners anway.

The SambaBus is available through the Used Cars menu on the World Map. However, Used Cars has a rotation of cars and prices, so it may not be there when you access the menu. In this case, come back the next day to see if it’s in the rotation.

4. Racing Kart 125 Shifter (49 HP)

Make: Gran Turismo
Country: Japan
Price: 10,000 credits
Performance Points: 587.15

The vehicle with the most PP on this list, the Racing Kart 125 Shifter is a series staple. In games past, the Kart had its own series, some games even forcing you to do the Kart races first to unlock the rest of the game.

While the Kart only has 49 horsepower, for its class, it’s rather quick. It’s light weight helped in part by not having a real frame gives the Kart a burst of speed that standard vehicles with similar horsepower just cannot match.

The Kart is available through Brand Central. It costs ten thousand credits.

5. Copen ’02 (62 HP)

Make: Daihatsu
Country: Japan
Price: 18,000 credits
Performance Points: 279.66

The sleek 2002 Daihatsu Copen makes the list with a low 62 horsepower. While its Vision Gran Turismo version packs more of a punch, this version was made for local driving in the busy and narrow streets of Japan. As such, it’s a good fit for races against similar vehicles along the Tokyo Expressway with the narrow track and many curves.

The 2002 Copen is available through Brand Central. It costs 18 thousand credits.

6. S660 ’15 (63 HP)

Make: Honda
Country: Japan
Price: 19,800 credits
Performance Points: 331.23

The most “racecar” looking of the entries on this list, the 2015 Honda S660 carries 63 horsepower, belying its look. Like the Copen, it was made for narrow and busy streets. Along with the Copen, they are the only two cars on this list with Turbo Aspiration.

The S660 is also the most expensive of the cars listed (depending on the prices in Used Cars). It costs 19,800 credits in Brand Central.

7. 500 1.2 8V Lounge SS ’08 (65 HP)

Make: Fiat
Country: Italy
Price: 17,000 credits
Performance Points: 267.65

The more modern version of the 500 makes the list with the 2008 500 1.2 8V Lounge SS version. It carries nearly 50 more horsepower than its predecessor, making it seem blazing compared to the 1968 model. Still, it’s a laggard compared to most cars in the game.

The 2008 500 is available through Brand Central. It is the only car under Fiat’s offerings. It costs 17 thousand credits.

8. Mini-Cooper “S” ’65 (68 HP)

Make: MINI
Country: Germany
Price: Variable (Used Cars rotation)
Performance Points: 365.67

Another iconic car, the 1965 Mini-Cooper “S” is the fastest of the slowest cars. It carries a whopping 68 horsepower, creating a difference of 53 between number one (1968 500 F) and number eight (1965 Mini-Cooper “S”) on this list.

You will obtain the Mini-Cooper “S” as part of completing Menu Book 3: European Classic Compacts from Luca in the Café. If you put off the Café missions, the car can be purchased from the Used Cars menu on the World Map. However, Used Cars has a rotation of cars and prices, so it may not be there when you access the menu. In this case, come back the next day to see if it’s in the rotation.

Now you know which cars are the slowest in Gran Turismo 7 and how to obtain them. Will you liven up the livery of the SambaBus and post photos in Showcase for all to see? Will you actually race with one?
