In-game descriptionEdit

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

The Plymouth GTX might not have the recognition of muscle cars like the Ford Mustang or Dodge Charger, but there's no doubting it was one of the hardest charging street rods of its day. The GTX was created because Plymouth wished to lose their reputation for only building sensible family cars. They wanted a hot rod to lure younger buyers away from the crop of muscle cars that had begun to crop up - the GTX fulfilled all the criteria. Based on the Plymouth Belvedere, the "letter" car (as the GTX was known) came with a massive 440 cubic inch V8 engine as standard. That was enough to give it a whopping 375 BHP and 480 lb/ft of torque. It also made the GTX one of the fastest cars around. With the accelerator flat to the floor and the engine howling, the GTX would hit 60 mph from rest in 6.8 seconds before achieving a 120 mph top speed. It quickly gained a cult following. Fast though the GTX was, it wasn't long before Plymouth decided they needed to offer customers even more power, and as such came up with the GTX Hemi. Power was up to 425 BHP, the 0-60 mph time was down to 6.3 seconds and top speed climbed to an unbelievable 144 mph. As well as a monster engine the GTX came with power assisted steering and disc brakes on the front. Suspension consisted of Torsion bars on the front and leaf springs on the rear. Options included a three speed automatic gearbox or a pistol grip four speed shifter. The appeal of the GTX finally began to wane in the early 70s when fuel, emissions and insurance concerns made muscle cars less fashionable. The Belvedere based GTX disappeared in 1972, although Road Runners, badged as GTXs, continued to be sold for another couple of years.
