This description is taken from the PAL version of Gran Turismo 2:
Familia, the Mazda compact model in its 7th generation since its debut in 1989, had an enhanced number of variations, with the Astina 5-door hatchback added to the existing 3-door hatchback and 4-door sedan. The model initially ranked highest was the Sports 4WD GT-X with its 4WD + Turbo unit combination. But in 1992, 3 years later, an even more powerful model joined the line-up. This was the Familia GT-R. This car was based on the GT-X, but adopted a larger turbocharger and intercooler. The maximum output reached 30ps higher to 210ps/6000rpm, and the maximum torque exertion attained 25.5kgm/4500rpm. The suspension used struts on both the front and rear, using a stronger version. The brakes used were from the Cosmo, a high-ranked model, to improve control to match the increased power. The GT-Ae was a simplified version of the GT-R, and was a machine that was marketed with a limited number of vehicles. This was a homologationmodel for competing in Group A of the WRC, and only 300 units were sold. The output was identical to the GT-R, but it also featured a body that was 30kg lighter than the GT-R, and a close-ratio 5-speed manual transmission. But the Familia never attained a victory in the actual WRC. It had matured by 1992, and the plan was to aim for the championship the following year in 1993, but due to faltering business performance at Mazda at the time, all WRC activities were cancelled. This model was truly a tragic one for Mazda. They had the weapon, and circumstance prevented them from wielding it to its full potential.
This car can occasionally be found at the Mazda Used Cars Dealership costing around 10,289 Credits.
