In-game descriptionEdit

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

Known as the GTO in Japan and the 3000GT in the UK, this car came out in 1990 with almost Ferrari-style supercar looks and lots of typically ingenious Japanese know-how. Let's start with twin turbos marshalling the three-litre DOHC V6 to produce 280 BHP at 6,000 rpm and 314 lb/ft of torque at 3,000 rpm. That muscle is pushed through a permanent four-wheel-drive system that employs a central viscous limited-slip differential to distribute torque. And that's not the only technology, the 3000GT also has four-wheel-steer and an electrically adjustable rear wing, to tailor the amount of downforce it generates. As it is, the car can fly from 0-60 mph in 5.7 seconds and hit a top speed of 150 mph. Thanks to those toys, it remains sure-footed at high speed, while the suspension can go from "Sport" to "Tour" mode at the flick of a switch, though in reality, the "Tour" setting is still pretty hard. It originally had cool-but-dated flip-up headlights, but these were replaced by projector models in '93, which was also when the GTO got a slick Getrag six-speed gearbox. Inside the cabin, although there's a glut of black plastic, there are plenty of buttons to play with and dials to look at. At night, it's lit up by a multitude of LEDs. You'll be sitting on electrically adjustable seats, too. Grip is supplied by 225/50 tyres on 17-inch alloy wheels, while ventilated disc brakes bring the 3000GT to a full stop from 70 mph in an impressive 158 ft. Some people will say that the chassis is not that communicative, but then again, neither is it twitchy. It's just the thing to fly off down to the South of France in. It'll eat up the motorways, then be a hoot on the mountain passes.
