The Hyundai Click Type-R '04 is a tuned city car produced by Hyundai. It only appears in the Korean version of Gran Turismo 4, and Gran Turismo 6.

In-game description[]

"A one-make race tuning car for beginner racers."

The Click (Getz in countries outside South Korea), sold by the Hyundai Motor Company, was developed as a utility 3-door/5-door compact hatchback, under the concept of a "young car". It is powered by either a 1.3 L or 1.5 L petrol or a 1.5 L diesel, with a 4-speed automatic or 5-speed manual transmission.

The Click Type R is a tuning car made for the Click Speed Festival one make race. The race, which introduced the idea of "experiencing a race for fun" to South Korea, is sponsored by several companies, and can be entered privately as it is inexpensive to do so. The engine and powertrain of cars entering the race cannot be modified, and the car cannot be changed from the condition in which it was delivered.

In terms of tuning, it focuses on handling, ease of driving and safety, in consideration for driving conditions on both circuit and public roads. The suspension dampers are stiffer and spring rates are increased, and spring position is lowered to improve cornering and acceleration performance. The bushings and sway bars are also reinforced to balance the car. The tread is increased by 16 mm, and is equipped with radial tyres that can handle public roads, sports driving and amateur racing.

Of course the livery kits and personal numbers show that this is in fact a racing car.

The Click Type-R in undoubtedly an attractive car that pursues utility in your day-to-day use, and racing performance on the weekends.

Trivia[]

  • An unused string of text in GTPSP suggest that this car was originally planned to make an appearance in GTPSP, together with the Ford Model T Tourer '15, the Audi Auto Union V16 Type C Streamline '37 and the Mazda MX-5 '05. All of these cars, which the exception of the Mazda MX-5 '05 (which appeared instead in a special GT4-based demo disc), have made an appearance in Gran Turismo 4. Also, the same string refers to Autobianchi, Jay Leno, Nike and several bike manufacters from Tourist Trophy (Kawasaki, Ducati and Pops Yoshimura, which is a Suzuki bike tuner) are also mentioned.[3]
  • Because of the car's price in GT4, it is possible to buy the car from the new car dealership and begin the game with no money.
    • However, due the car being equipped with Racing tires when purchased, the player isn't allowed to directly use this car on most car events that use tire restrictions unless they purchase Standard or Sports tires. This could be sidestepped easily as Standard tires are free of charge in GT4.
