The Citroën Xsara Rally Car is a rally car produced by Citroën. This fictional rally car based on the pre-facelift Citroën Xsara only appeared in Gran Turismo 2, being replaced with the actual F2 Kit Car in later games.
This car can be purchased in the special section of the Citroën dealership for 500,000 Credits.
- When viewing this car in the Special Line-Up in the Citroen Dealership in West City, it is displayed as having 295BHP. Once purchased however, it will display as having 378BHP.
- This car was meant to represent the F2 kit car. However, it is visually and mechanically incorrect: black body instead of red and white and having both a turbocharged engine and 4WD drivetrain (neither were used until Citroën entered the WRC full-time with the Xsara WRC in 2000), as well as the rear wing placed on the roof instead of the trunk. Considering the huge number of differences between this car and the actual Xsara F2 kit car, it may be possible that this car is actually a fictional WRC-styled version of the Citroën Xsara F2 kit car.
- Ironically, a YouTuber named Tanner D92 has discovered, on the Japanese Test Drive demo disc, a more accurate-looking version of the car (with rear wing in the proper position and red body, including the roof, which should be white, as well as the road car's rim). The car in question can be seen here (note: the car and the track was ported to the final version of the game by modifying the game's files). This would mean that, during the development of Gran Turismo 2, the car was originally intended to be similar to the actual Citroën Xsara F2 kit car. It should be noted that this version was coded as the racing modification for the Citroën Xsara 1.8i 16V Exclusive.
