How to get 120 / $150 worth of Gran Turismo 6 in-game Credit for FREE

If you want to own the most expensive cars in Gran Turismo 6 then you’ll need to rack up a serious amount of in-game Credit, and with seemingly diminished rewards for completing races in this latest offering the only way to do this quickly is through micro-transactions.

The maximum value you can hold in your account is 20,000,000 Cr, and to amass this virtual fortune immediately would set you back a whopping £120 or $150 in micro-transactions through the GT Store. However, a glitch has been discovered which allows players to immediately boost their accounts to the maximum balance without having to spend a penny!

If the idea of becoming an instant Credit millionaire appeals to you then follow the steps below, but do it soon – Polyphony Digital are no doubt already working on an update to fix this exploit, after which you’ll have to go back to grinding out race victories the old fashioned way.

  1. While playing the patched 1.01 version of Gran Turismo 6, head to Vision GT under the Cars section.
  2. Select the first vehicle, the Mercedes-Benz AMG Vision Gran Turismo, and choose to ‘Accept as a Gift’.
  3. When ‘Do you want to use this car now?’ appears, choose No – if you pick Yes the game will crash during the following steps.
  4. Save and quit back to the XMB, then go to Game Data Utility and delete the Gran Turismo 6 1.01 file – don’t worry, this won’t affect your save.
  5. Reload the game but decline the 1.01 update and PSN sign-in prompt.
  6. Enter your Garage and view your Car List, then select the Mercedes-Benz which is now displayed as [2055].
  7. Choose the Sell option and the Sale Price will be displayed as 333,993,856 Credits, though this is capped at the maximum of 20,000,000 Cr once the transaction goes through.
  8. Save, quit then reload to install the 1.01 patch again.
  9. Buy whatever cars and upgrades you like, safe in the knowledge that your account will never run dry.
