Gran Turismo 2 is the second game in the Gran Turismo series of racing games exclusively for the PlayStation. The racing game features 20 tracks and over 400 vehicles, an arcade mode and a simulation mode, and also supports two-player split screen racing. It's the first GT game to feature rally racing (even though it's like a time trial).

Gran Turismo 2 PlayStation Nothing but open road. Unlike many racing games, the first person view is just as useful as the third person. In fact, you get more sensation from the dips and banks in the roads in this mode.

In a rush to release the game, the creators got careless and left a few glitches. One of them was when you finish the game and get everything you can, your percentage says 98.8 It teases you and makes you go insane because you think you finished.

The other glitch was that no matter what, even if you saved your game, cars can disappear from your garage.


One of three games to be emulated on the short-lived bleemcast! PlayStation emulator for Dreamcast.


Early releases were produced with a scratch and sniff coating on the blue GT Mode disc. A gentle rub with the fingers or a soft cloth will release the fragrant scent of grease, oil and burnt rubber.


According to developer Polyphony Digital, Gran Turismo 2 sold 9,370,000 copies worldwide since its original release.
