Welcome to GTData
Welcome to GTData. This is a database of the statistics of cars in Gran Turismo 5. The aim of this site is to provide an accurate,
comprehensive reference with a completely flexible search mechanism to filter the cars. You can save these searches, and then paste
the filtered lists into your website.
Want a list of Japanese production cars that can be tuned to 400 hp and reduced to 1200kg (assuming unlimited power limiter and ballast use)?
Click here. All European touring cars? Click here. Cars that actually drove the 24 Hours of Le Mans? Click here. Or anything else you might like to search for.
You can also use GTData to store your tunes and lap times. These can be shared with other users, or kept private for your own records.
This is a live resource, and all visitors are encouraged to enter new data or adjust inaccuracies. As such, on every car’s information page there
are links to submit data about that car. If you notice a missing or incorrect car, please
This project stemmed from the efforts to create online racing events with evenly matched cars in the
and DriverSports organisations. Without an accurate resource, this task was made very difficult.
We used a consistent methodology to account for engine break in and wear in GT5, to make this resource as meaningful and accurate as possible
You can store your tunes and lap times at GTData. Share your tunes with others.
tunes and times.
Create events. Collect and organise qualifying times, event registrations or run a time trial. Distribute suggested or required builds or
tunes. Link to your own (offsite) event information page or forum. Embed submission or event results forms in your website. Entrants to your
events do not require GTData accounts, but GTData users can add their submitted times to their GTData. Explore to see the many ways that you
can organise events.
Updates GT5 v2.11 un-update
As Polyphony Digital has decided to rollback the PP values to their pre GT5 v2.10 values, the values entered for 2.10 are being rolled back at GTData to match. Likewise, the warnings about unconfirmed 2.10 data have been removed; at least until PD decides on a different different PP formula. These values of the ~100 odd cars that we got v2.10 data from will be backdated by the end of today. In the meantime, submission of car data is disabled, to make avoid mistakes on the database side.
More details on v2.10 update
The largest effects of the v2.10 game update on PP seem to target rear wheel drive cars, typically lowering them.
The PP of cars with installed aero has changed, but only often at max and min aero, and then just by 0-2 PP. Typically the min aero value is higher, and the max aero value is lower than prior, narrowing slightly the range of PP available by tweaking aero. To editorialize, that hardly seems enough of a change to warrant the effort on their part. The change in aero calculation means that all the maxed PP values recorded prior to 2.10 will differ, although for cars with low aero this is typically a change of just ~1 PP.
Notes on the car information pages have been made to inform of the magnitude of probable deviations.
GT5 Version 2.10 Changes PP Values
The Performance Points (PP) values for many, but not all cars were altered by the GT5 version 2.10 update. As such, many PP values in GTData will now be out of date. Changes like this, especially to PP by Polyphany Digital were forseen when the database was created, so the version that performance data were curated at has been stored in the database since its inception.
Thus, I have provided a warning on each car's information page if the PP of that car has not been validated. I have updated the submit page to provide a checkbox to indicate that a car's PP is accurate in GTData as of the current GT5 version.
You can search for cars on the basis of what game version their data was collected at, and view this value in a column for all search results.
I encourage anyone with time to check the
list of these cars against their garages for the accuracy of their PP values, and if possible update stock and maxed pp values by following the links to submit data on the car information pages. Please also submit data for any cars that have not changed their PP on this list, using the aforementioned checkbox on the submit form.
As always, remember that cars need to have been driven between 200 and 6000 miles, and have an oil change before the data can be considered accurate for GTData.
Comments on cars has been revised, in order to attribute the comments to the users that submitted them. Combined cars comments can now always be shown as a column in any car search results table.
Event updates, bug fixes.
Clarified event submission options, including the option for events requiring registration without time submission and/or car selection.
Several bug fixes. For instance, discovered that switching between 'official' and 'course maker' tracks did not work on some pages. Events without car or track selection did not work properly.
Event submissions now require captcha, if not logged into GTData, to prevent spam.
Updated events and times to reflect the new settings available for tire wear and fuel consumption, as of GT5 version 2.09
Thanks for your patience. All is operational again now after an unplanned month down, due to Sandy.
GTData will be down for ~ 3 days while new hardware is installed, from 10/24/12 until 10/27/12. Apologies for any inconvenience.
Search Similar Cars
"Search Similar Cars" is now an option when viewing a car. This performs a search for cars with the same body style (coupé, roadster etc.), engine type, seat count and drivetrain, and with similar (+/- 5%) engine displacement, power, weight and PP.
Exclude Dummy Tunes
More small changes. Refresh your cache, to get the new CSS files.
Formatting changes to view_event, including a slightly wider width to accommodate wider submissions table content. Dates added to mouse-over in tune ancestry. The auto-generated "dummy" tunes for events can now be excluded from a tunes/times search and are not shown on each cars main data page. These place-holder tunes are created so that a user can record their submitted time with their GTData without the rigmoral of creating a real tune. An event creator might edit these "dummy" tunes to have an accurate representation of the performance and parts present on the car of a driver submitting a time for their event, but by default the dummy tune can be almost blank, and thus may not be of much interest when searching for tunes and times. When submitting a time for an event, you can choose to associate that time with any tune for your selected car. Previously, you could only choose one of your own tunes. Small updates
Bunch of small changes and bug fixes:
Added an iframe link for posting events in external sites
Renamed event "results" to "submissions", as the former was confusing to those using the submitted times for qualifying or event registration.
Added/updated boost, tire and drivetrain preferences to the GT5 online room regulations, to better reflect the in-game options.
Fixed a problem where searching cars on fuel type was not returning hybrids.
'Remember me' option for login was made somewhat more robust and reliable. Permanent Login
Provided a range of medium and small improvements:
Long requested, but now available: permanent login.
If only one car in event, don't have to select a car before submitting a time.
Toggles for event related iframes.
"Tuning Prohibited" has an explicit button in GT5 room settings, is better annotated.
Explicit links can be provided to a given user's events. This can also be provided as iframe code, for implementation on sites that allow inline HTML.
Fixed an unclosed div element in "Your GTData" that was causing wonky formatting in the PS3 browser. Surface Water
Surface water has been added as an option for lap times.
Car Search Results Improvements
To exclude a car from search results, you just click on the [x] next to the car. Exclusion happens immediately. You can edit the list of excluded cars with a "modify" link, as with other search criteria. As a result of this re-formatting, 'enter' and 'escape' keys now work intuitively when annotating search results (previously they may have induced an unwanted page reload).
I've made few minor tweaks and improvements here and there. A cache update may be necessary for live filtering of tables to work correctly.
I added a table of all your times to your user home page. This might be handy for people that record a lot of times on other's tunes.
2.03 Cars Available for Data
I have inserted the names of the cars for the version 2.03 DLC Car Pack, as well as the Special Stage X track. Add your data about those cars.
I also fixed an issue with total aero, where some cars with "0/0" aero did not have their max aero values calculated correctly.
Filter User Tables
Updated with a few bug squashes, and the ability to filter tunes, searches etc on user_home pages
GTData's DNS host has been experiencing a Denial Of Service attack, so access to GTData has been intermittent over the past day. The host reports that they are getting on top of the attack, and access is returning to normal.
Performance data for all cars, broken in, in stock and max modified states is almost complete. Some of the remaining cars are Chrome-Line or Stealth pre-order bonus cars that not everybody has access to, or Karts.
I have added the ability to add your own notes next to a car in the car search results, to help with making custom lists of cars for events and event postings. These notes are specific to a particular car in a particular search only, and will not be copied when you make a copy of the search.
<100 cars without all data!
MAJOR UPDATE - TUNES
You can now save your tunes at GTData. Chose a car, scroll down, then 'Enter Tune'. If parts information has been provided for that car, the default parts will initially be loaded, and disallowed parts will be disabled.
Lap Times can be recorded now too. When viewing the tune that the lap time was recorded with, select 'Add Time'.
You can search for tunes and times in the same way that you can search for cars, which I hope will become useful, as the number of tunes and times increases.
You can now make friends with other users from your 'Your GTData' page, and view tunes and searches that they have set to be shared with friends, should keeping your tunes private be your concern :)
Tunes and tune-searches can be embedded in forums and such using iframe code, just as car searches could be.
This is the initial rollout of these new features, doubtless with a few bugs and quirks, and I welcome all reports and suggestions.
Spec 2.0 cars are ready for data
I have added what I know of the Spec 2.0 cars to the database. All DLC cars, including but not limited to the Spec 2.0 release, are listed
. As always contributions of data of any kind are greatly appreciated.
Quick Search just got smarter.
Typing in the quick search box now searches more than just make, model and year. Also searched is country and race league, as well as several keywords for car classification: concept, production, street, tuner and race will narrow your search accordingly. Additionally, stock horsepower, torque, PP and weight can be included in your quick search phrase by typing a number followed by hp, tq, pp or kg. Results returned are within +/-10% of the requested value.
After typing, press enter to go to a table of your search results. You can modify your search here. For more advanced searches continue to use the "Search Cars" link in the menu.
Try it by typing "Japan race 900hp 1000kg" and pressing enter.
Up 2 weeks
Up for two weeks, and I've been squashing small bugs and dealing with some simple suggestions.
The biggest change so far has been that when you look at a car's detail page, the previous and next links only go through your search results, not through an alphabetical list of cars.
I've removed the 'browse' link from the menu, since it's functionality was somewhat useless. The most effective way to explore the ~1000 cars is to first design a search, browse through that search, then refine the search.
I'll be adding to the criteria queried in the quick car search box to include some of the common things people search for, beyond the make-model-year car name.
This is an initial rollout of the site for preliminary analysis and feedback. Please test out the search and submission system, and let me know if you find any errors or bugs. The site will not always be available during this initial setup, so please be patient.
I am working on some improvements to submit new colours to associate with a car, and to associate two cars that are the same, but sold in different markets or under different manufacturer labels. After ironing out bugs, and getting the site permanently online, I’ll add functionality to record tunes and lap times.
