Why you should sell cars in Gran Turismo 7
Selling a car will provide you with in-game credits that in turn can be spent on other cars, parts, tyre or modifications.
There are now several ways of earning big credits relatively easy, especially through the new content delivered in the November update, but those big-ticket cars from the Legendary Cars pavilion are still a herculean challenge to save up for.
Selling a few prizes possessions may help you achieve a goal.
What is the Car Valuation Service in Gran Turismo 7?
The Car Valuation Service in Gran Turismo 7 is a tool to provide you with a used car price. You can see how a model you won has depreciated or appreciated over time and decide if to sell for credits or not.
Where is the Car Valuation Service in Gran Turismo 7
To access the Car Valuation Service to sell cars in Gran Turismo 7, visit the Used Cars pavilion from the main World Map.
Then, at the top right of the screen above the cars on sale, you will see a Car Valuation Service icon. Select this to access the tool.
You must complete Café Menu Book No. 39 World GT Series before you can sell cars
In order to unlock the ability to sell cars in Gran Turismo 7 using the Car Valuation Service, you must have played through the Café Menu Books and completed No. 39 – Championship: World GT Series.
This is the main ‘career’ mode in the game. If you have not completed No. 39 yet, the chances are you won’t have a huge garage of cars anyway, so this is something to aim for and is well worth completing.
It’s worth noting that post-release, further Café Menu Books have been added, but you only need to complete the 39th to trigger the ending movie and unlock the ability to sell cars.
Car Valuation Service information
Once selected, you will be presented with a list of all cars that you currently own. This can be organised by selecting the ‘Sort’ icon at the top right: Variation rate, Valuation amount and car manufacturer can be selected.
In the table, you will see the car make and name, a visual icon for each model, it’s current valuation and its increase or decrease in value.
How valuations are determined
The value of, or the amount the game will pay out for, your cars is broken down into two main areas:
The worth of the car itself before modifications and after usage. More miles could reduce this valuation, along with engine wear, oil quality and structural condition. Also, market trends, such as the Hagerty valuations, also contribute to fluctuations. These changes are represented in graph form.
The worth of tuning parts added to the car to improve performance.
The final appraisal is a combination of the Body Valuation and the Tuning Valuation.
How to spot duplicates
As you scroll down the list of cars sold, if you see a small round number icon to the left of a car’s picture, that means you have two of the same car.
This is handy if you’d like to earn in-game credit for cars you own two or more of.
Same car, different valuations
Let’s say you do own two or more of the same exact car, you can individually appraise each one.
Select a car that you won multiple examples of, and a sub-menu appears listing each one in your collection. You can then dig deeper into each car’s valuation – one with tuning parts may be worth more than another, or one with high miles on the clock may be worth less.
Can you sell prize or gift cars?
Yes, you can sell cars using the Car Valuation Service in Gran Turismo 7 if you have received them as an in-game gift such as Mission completion or Roulette Ticket rewards.
Can you sell cars Manufacturers Cup?
No, you cannot sell cars in Gran Turismo 7 loaned to you by signing up for the Sport Mode Manufacturers Cup. This is because you do not on them, rather borrow for the period of the competition.
Can you sell cars received as pre-order bonuses?
No, you cannot sell cars in Gran Turismo 7 that came via download codes for the 25th Anniversary Edition or Launch Edition of the game.
Can you sell cars you’ve spent real money on?
Yes, if you’ve purchased in-game credits with real-world money, and then used those credits to purchase a car, these can still be sold.
Can I sell more than one car of the same model on the same day?
No, you cannot sell more than one of the same specific car model every 24 hours.
Once the time period passes, you can then sell another one. This only applies if you have two or more of the same car.
You can sell an unlimited number of different cars every 24 hours.
