In-game descriptionEdit

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

Having tolerated "M" and "Q", James Bond, 007, would no doubt find some ingenious use for "Z" - Honda's smart little car with a few innovations that Q would admire. For a start, there's the looks. Although the Z is a small city car with smart alloy wheels, it has the chunky air of an off-roader - and a rather wacky one at that. But it's not all show, because the Z comes equipped with a permanent four-wheel-drive system. That's not all. The Z employs a platform called the UM-4. The UM part stands for "Under Midships". This means that the engine is mounted under the rear seat, not quite halfway along the car, but far enough from the rear to be classified as mid-mounted. The engine is no run-of-the-mill mill either. It's a compact three-cylinder, low-pollution, single overhead cam, 12-valve powerplant with a capacity of 660cc. It develops - in its normally-aspirated form - 51BHP at 7,000rpm and 44lb/ft of torque at 4,000rpm. But in its turbocharged guise - very unusual for a Honda - power is boosted to 63BHP at 6,000rpm while the peak torque figure gets higher to the tune of 69lb/ft at 3,700rpm. These figures may not be mind-blowing, but remember that the Z is a small, light car with near-perfect 50/50 weight distribution. Since the Z isn't nose-heavy, the car has a crisp, fast turn-in to corners yet still feels stable. Drive goes through the four-speed automatic gearbox (there is no manual option) to all four wheels. The Z's suspension set-up comprises independent MacPherson struts at the front with a multi-link arrangement at the rear. The Z is halted by disc brakes forward and drum brakes astern. The turbo version is further distinguished by white instrument dials. if only it had an ejector seat as well...
