Recommended Car[edit]

For A-Spec and B-Spec wait until you win the Toyota 7 Race Car '70 in the level 21 B-Spec race 'Like the Wind'. To make it a bit easier in A-Spec you should upgrade to Race-Soft tires. If you're having trouble getting first on the Cote d' Azur track in A-spec with the Toyota 7, change the top speed to 180 mph to increase your acceleration since you have no upgrade options.

If you can, get the Chaparral 2J Race Car for Côte d'Azur, especially for B-Spec. The amount of downforce this car generates constantly and it's high acceleration (low top speed) will hold a great advantage on this track. The only problem is it is an extremely expensive car (over 10 million credits), and is very rare in the Used Car Dealership. If a friend of yours on GT5 has one, ask him/her to share it and you can use it in the race. It is also possible to win this car with a ticket.
