The wait is finally over. After a long five years since Gran Turismo Sport, and an even more grueling nine years since Gran Turismo 6, drivers can grab their gloves and strap in behind the wheel again with the release of Gran Turismo 7 on PS4 and PS5. With its release comes new tracks, cars, and mountains to climb as drivers strive for greatness. And what better way to reach it than the “fastest” way possible?

Gran Turismo 7 has a wide array of speed demons to choose from and uses a credit system for purchasing vehicles. Unsurprisingly, the best of the best cost a pretty penny. So drivers who can accumulate the most capital can dominate the raceways. When you first start off, you have a workable pocket of credits. And as you continue to win and show your strength, you begin to forge your path and destiny to become the fastest on the track. 

The list below primarily ranks cars by Brake Horsepower (BHP). Simply put, BHP is the engine power and determines the top speed and acceleration of the car. In the case of a tie, Performance Points (PP) were used as a tiebreaker.

With that said, here are some of the fastest cars in Gran Turismo 7 that players should consider when they’ve come up with the credits.

10) Jaguar VGT Roadster

  • Max power: 1,004 BHP
  • PP: 748.40
  • Drivetrain: 4WD
  • Weight: 1400 kg (3,000 lbs)
  • Aspiration: Electric Vehicle (EV)
  • Displacement: N/A
  • Car Price: 1,000,000 credits

Jaguar speed is one way to dominate the track. Coming in at a 1,004 BHP rating, the VGT Roadster was a uniquely created concept vehicle for the Vision Gran Turismo Project. This 4WD electric monster dominates the track with its speed and tough physical appearance. Players can purchase the VGT Roadster for the hefty price of 1 million credits.

9) Jaguar VGT Coupe

  • Max power: 1,004 BHP

Another Jaguar part of the Vision Project, the VGT coupe concept car comes in at No. 9 with its near-identical stats to its Roadster version. But the Coupe gets the slight edge over the Roadster with its two additional Performance Points (750.81 to the Roadster’s 748.40). It also has a beautiful sci-fi look that would turn most heads. 

While there’s not much of a difference, the main choice between these two cars comes down to the driver’s aesthetic preferences with the slight physical differences between these two road titans. Players can also purchase this Jaguar VGT for 1 million credits.
