In-game description

This description is taken from the original Gran Turismo:

When Acura came out with a new 3.2 liter engine and 6-speed manual transmission in 1997, the sports model Type S was added to the line-up. Also, Type S Zero, with enhanced sportiness and more emphasis on circuit driving, was added. The Type S had managed to remove approximately[1] 45 kg from the standard NSX, but the Type S Zero went even further, stripping away a staggering 96 kg. With these changes, the NSX became an easier car to turn compared to previous incarnations, especially with the Type S Zero. The suspension was given added rigidity at the rear and slightly softened at the front, resulting in secure communication between car and road surface, and a more neutral handling. These alterations changed the car's looks far more radically than the previous generation had done, and resulted in a car that requires a certain amount of skillful driving. Genuine sports cars choose their own drivers.
