Regional Differences

North America/Europe Japan

In Japan, the game is known as City Tour GrandPrix: Zen Nihon GT Senshuken and has a completely different logo on the title screen.

North America/Europe Japan

While both versions feature the same menu music, the Japanese version has somewhat different instrumentation compared to the US/EU release.

Vehicles

The North American and European versions have vehicles with liveries for the game's publishers Imagineer and Ocean, with the cars themselves resembling a Porsche 911 and a Lamborghini Diablo, respectively. The Japanese version instead features the liveries and drivers of the JGTC teams that used said vehicles, and replaces the fake engine and chassis names with those of the real cars. It's likely that these two JGTC teams weren't included in the US/EU releases due to potential licensing issues with Porsche and Lamborghini, as it would happen in the latter's case with Gran Turismo 3 a few years later.

Circuits

The track selection menu got a rather noticeable graphical overhaul between releases, with the US/EU ones going for a simple 2D layout, while the Japanese version featured a rotating 3D layout instead. Also modified was the names of the circuits, with the Japanese and European circuits now taking place in Tokyo and Lake Fuji respectively.

Meanwhile, the third track was entirely replaced for this version, going from racing in an American city's streets (loosely based on the Phoenix street circuit used by Formula One in 1989 to 1991 seasons), to instead doing that in the streets of Kyoto.
