From tcrf:

This version was released in Japan, possibly at one of the dealerships. Looking at the title screen of this one, you wouldn't think it'd be based off of Prologue and more off the final, as the "Prologue" title is dropped and just displays the normal logo with "PRIUS TRIAL VERSION" on the bottom. However, when you actually press Start, which is labeled as a Prius' power button, you can already start to notice that in fact it is. The menus are similar, it uses the recycled Gran Turismo 3 music in some places, and some of the HUD is kept the same. The difference is you can only race a Prius 1 lap around Tsukuba Circuit, the rest of the HUD that isn't the same has been replaced to show the hybrid aspects of the car, and before the race you watch a quick video of someone turning on the Prius (you know, to convey the realism). Speaking of videos, the trial also has a nice video showcasing the car, with some guy speaking in Japanese probably telling you about its features.

As the game is based on the Japanese version of GT4P, all 3D objects in the game are in GT3 format.
