In-game descriptionEdit

"A Belgian supercar with high-performance capability and a maximum output of 897 BHP."





Former racing driver Tony Gillet of Belgium established Gillet Automobiles in order to realize his dream of creating the best road-going sports car in the world. His very first model, the Vertigo, was shown to the public in 1992. This car was powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-4 (the same powerplant used in the Ford Sierra RS Cosworth) and featured a radical body shape. In 1998, the car went through a drastic change, powered by the Alfa Romeo GTV/166's 3.0-liter 24-valve V-6 that produced 217 HP.

The race version of the Vertigo had this engine tuned to an impressive 394 HP, making it one of the favorites in the Belgian Touring Car Championship, which it raced that year. The Vertigo was among the fastest cars on the track, but considering that these races fielded around 50 entrants, the Vertigo did not see a great deal of success. The car also participated in the Belgian round of the FIA Sports Car Championship the same year, where it finished 10th overall. It also won the GTG class against such internationally famous rivals as the Lamborghini Diablo, Porsche 911 GT3, and Lotus Elise. In 2002, the Vertigo race car's engine was replaced with a 3.8-liter V-6 boasting a monstrous 897 HP at 8950 rpm and 564.1 ft-lb of torque at 6300 rpm, making it one of the most powerful machines to ever come out of this small country.

TriviaEdit

  • Like many other cars in the Gran Turismo series, this car has an incorrect power output. The Alfa V6 used in this car from 2004-2007 produced a maximum of 355 BHP and it was not until 2008, when they started using a Maserati/Ferrari V8, that power rose above 400 BHP. No version of the Vertigo, road or race versions, ever had a power output of almost 900 BHP in real life.
  • The livery used in the games appear to be a presentation livery, as it was not used during any of the car's race outings. The Gillet dealership menu in GT4 display a similar, if not an exact, livery.
