During the opening FMV, two track's names that were planned to be included flash on the screen, Eiger Loop and Palm Strip.
Palm Strip was planned to be included along with a Drag Racing mode see : Arcade Mode. Both Palm Strip and Eiger Loop exist only in the form of text in the intro movie, there are no files left after their removal from the game. More evidence for the Drag Race mode exists in the form of three Drag cars available in the game. These cars are extremely fast but are almost entirely useless around corners.
Present in gt2.vol, hinting that more features were to be included regarding pit stops.
Too Fast To Stop! Pit Stop Skipped Pit Stop Needless
This is followed shortly by the following text
Too Fast To Stop! Skipped Pit Stop No Need to Pit Stop
These lines appear translated into French, German, and Spanish.
A text string inside the game shows that it was possible to earn a fourth prize in the license tests. It is even translated to other languages.
PLATINUM PRIZE! MEDAILLE DE PLATINE ! PLATIN! PLATINO! ¡PLATINO!
The intro FMV is different across all three major regions, due to licensing.
Three cars had texture changes between regions.
Several car names and nameplates were also modified. The changes mostly amount to spacing changes or typo removals (or in the case of the Vector W-8, to go from one typo to another). Mazda's A-Spec cars all had their logos changed to include 'MazdaSpeed', similar to the A-Spec Demio in the below table.

Other car changes include:
- PAL versions of the game had Vauxhall branded cars, whereas NTSC copies had Opel. Interestingly, if you set your language to German in the PAL version of the game, both Vauxhall and Opel were available to the player. Completing the races for both Vauxhall and Opel allowed the player to achieve more than 100% completion.
- PAL and JP versions of the game had only Hondas, while the US had both Honda and Acura (Honda's luxury car division in the US).
- PAL copies had Esso Ultron branding on advertisements and car decals, NTSC had Exxon Superflo.
To complete the triumvirate of in-game data, a few trackside hoardings had minor design tweaks.
The US versions of both discs have different title screens to the rest of the world.
PAL and NTSC copies also had completely different soundtracks available. NTSC had 16 songs available, while PAL only had 7. The two regions only had one song in common, the song used in the opening FMV (although it used two different mixes).
