Gran Turismo 5 Race Modification Car List

Gran Turismo 5 Race Modification Car List

If you can believe it, only 17 out of the 1000+ cars in Gran Turismo 5 can be race modified. However, to save you from going out and buying every vehicle or slowly checking all of your current cars to see if they can be race modified I decided to compile this list.

You’re still able to tune the cars after they’ve been race modified and they all come out painted in white after you’ve spent your big bucks to do this. I will say that these horsepower and torque numbers could be off by a bit since the dealership and garage numbers can vary. Always change the oil even if the car is new. I’ve seen in some instances that it’s raised my horsepower by 8-12 on some of my new cars.

Please comment if I’ve missed anything! Perhaps someone can tell me what the specs are after race modifying the Corvette ZR1.

  1. Half the time I don’t even bother with race modifying my cars. I much prefer to fine tune them my self by hand. Usually get better results that way too.

    • mike

      you can do both

  2. Bobby

    This was so helpful! I tell u what, GT5 really messed up on this, not even so much as a separate part of the menu at least letting you know which cars to modify! Instead we’re left to pay all this money on cars that we really don’t need after all. In any case though, it’s still a cool option. Again thanks alot! You saved me alot of time and money!

  3. maze

    The vette zr1 specs are HP 879 MT 806 ft lbs weight 1100 kg

    • Co1e

      Ya i did it to and i finally won the american muscle challenge!! Extreme!! All i had to do was buy medium racing tires and i pwned so worth the amount of money

  4. Believelander

    Specs on the Race Mod ZR1 without any other mods:
    Max hp: 694hp/6800
    Max torque: 627 ft-lb/4300
    Weight: 1100 kg

  5. douch69bag

    you all know that, a short list like that makes the game a little less interesting!!! I hope updates change this :(

  6. Ron

    Well, you saved me a chore and a half (and then some) so thank you very much for posting this.
    To date I’d only found five of the damned things.
    To above, you can still tune the Race Modified Cars – but you can’t quite get that paint job, can you. You can also change the ‘base’ colours to what pleases your eye too.

  9. 69stinger

    well the Z06 slightly out-performs the ZR-1 after mods so save some money u dont need theZR-1

  10. snakebacon97

    well who cares if there’s only 17, there all great fun and there’s dlc for another 13 touring cars (which are almost the same)
    Prius
    Cr-Z

    R33 GTR

    R35 GTR
    Challenger Srt8
    Mx5
    Rx7
    Evo X
    Impreza

  11. NineMileBurner

    So i guess after the race modification, these cars no longer qualify for races with restriction for ‘non race cars’?

  12. saagar

    Thanks dude

  13. Nice work. This is a huge time saver for me. Sure seems like it would have been a good idea for GT5 to put some sort of a race mod icon on the cars that can be upgraded.
    Thanks!

  14. Kevin

    Does anyone else’s Z06 (C6) RM ’06 make more HP every time it’s driven?!

  15. Navi

    not even a trophy…
    that sucks

  16. Red Bull

    I won a 98 – 02 camaro that can be rm, so there might be others you can win. It was painted kind of like the 06 z06. I thought that i could repaint it and that the white would be the only color to change. I painted it yellow and the whole car was yellow, still had the racing number and other sponser decals but was no longer two toned. Also the the headlights are yellow after the rm.

  17. Red Bull

    Ok i was wrong about the 98 – 02 camaro being an rm car, i just thought it was because it was painted like the vette. Its a racing version car but not rm.

  18. davidguire

    as a reminder… all those cars listed are stock before oil change… and the race mods specs are before oil change miles and tuning… GL with that zr1 rm handling, it may be fast but its handling is crap compared to real life.
