This description is taken from the PAL version of Gran Turismo 2:
In Japan, it's called the Pulsar and in Europe, it's called the Sunny. We'll refer to this GTi-R car as the Pulsar, though, because it's a bit of a star. By 1990, this three-door hatchback was in its fourth generation, firmly establishing itself as a dull but dependable family runabout. The mad GTi-R changed all that beyond recognition. This particular Pulsar's body sports large spoilers front and rear and a large air intake for the turbocharger on the bonnet. Yep, the two-litre, DOHC powerplant has a turbo. Each of its four cylinders has a four-butterfly throttle intake and exhaust mechanisms that work to produce 227 BHP at 6,400 rpm and 210 lb/ft of torque at 4,800 rpm. Power is sent through the five-speed manual gearbox to a four-wheel-drive system, incorporating a centre differential and a viscous limited slip diff. On the road, the Pulsar flies up to 60 mph in a very rapid 5.4 seconds, then the speedo needle edges its way around to 144 mph. If you need to hit the brakes, rest assured that heavy duty ventilated discs up front and solid discs at the rear are worked by an ABS system. This very impressive capability puts the GTi-R on the same level as some serious all-wheel-drive rally-bred machinery such as the Ford Escort Cosworth and the Lancia Integrale - cult cars each one. Sitting on its lowered and stiffened suspension - with 14-inch alloy wheels and low profile 195/55 tyres - the Pulsar GTi-R boasts fantastic grip and traction for such a fast, small, lightweight car. The front tends to be a little nose-heavy, resulting in a handling set-up for mild, predictable understeer through the twisty bits, but feather the throttle, correct the steering here and there as the back end drifts round and you can take the Pulsar GTi-R - and four other people if you wish - for a laugh-a-minute drive.

- A modified version of this car also appears as a separate car in the Arcade Mode of Gran Turismo 2. For more info, see: Nissan Pulsar GTi-R Rally Car.
- For some reason, the "Pulsar" part of the name is missing in the replay name in the NTSC-U version of GT2.
