In-game descriptionEdit

This description is taken from the PAL version of Gran Turismo 2:

If ever a car was designed to appeal to the well-heeled, then the Chrysler Phaeton concept car is it. The Phaeton is a throwback to the glamour days of Hollywood, and certainly your average silver screen superstar wouldn't look out of place behind the wheel. For a start the Phaeton is huge. In fact there's over five and a half metres of swooping steel bodywork sitting upon its tall and shiny eight inch wide and 22 inch high wheels. Just as big as the body and wheels is the engine. With a whopping 425 BHP of power it will come as no surprise that under the bonnet lurks a 5.4 litre V12 engine. Chrysler has never released official performance figures, but a 0-60 mph time of around seven seconds and a 140 mph plus top speed would not be inconceivable. More surprising than the performance however is just how Chrysler created this V12. The engine is made from the sections of three 2.7 litre V6s; the front of one, the middle of another and a portion of the rear of yet another. All three are then welded together to create one massive 425 BHP monster. According to Chrysler the advantages of such an engine are power and refinement. Like the historic cars that inspired it, the Phaeton boasts separate front and rear compartments (chauffeur and chauffeured), while the rear screen that separates the two is automatically lowered when the convertible roof is raised. Meanwhile an instrument panel in the rear allows the back seat passengers to know exactly how fast they're going - if they're not too busy posing that is. Of all Chrysler's recent concept cars, the extravagant Phaeton is extremely unlikely to make it into production. Still, at least you can drive it in Gran Turismo.
