In-game descriptionEdit

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

The MR2 debuted in 1984 as the first car in Japan to feature the midship engine layout. A full model change in October 1989 introduced the second-generation Model SW20. The first models suffered inadequate chassis rigidity, but subsequent minor changes brought about the Model II (December 1992), Model III (October 1994), and Model IV (June 1996), culminating in the pure, refined sportiness of today's models. The current models come with one of two engines: a 2.0-liter DOHC 4-in-line naturally aspirated model that generates 177 BHP and 141 lb-ft of torque, and a 2.0-liter DOHC 4-in-line turbocharged engine that delivers 242 BHP and 224 lb-ft of torque. Strut suspension is used in the front and rear. Bilstein shocks are standard on GT models. The performance of the turbocharged GT-S can be described in one word: intense. With amazing power for its size, this engine accelerates with ferocity. At the same time, the excellent traction, steering response and direct, responsive handling made possible by the mid-engined drivetrain allow the driver to enjoy cornering at an advanced level. Stability is also excellent, but this car does require the driver to have an advanced level of skill. In fact, driving this car without adequate ability could even be dangerous. The naturally aspirated G-Limited lacks only the turbo model's ferocious acceleration, instead offering a well-balanced combination of chassis performance and engine power that actually makes for a more pleasant, satisfying drive than the over-the-top turbo model provides. Drivers with the ability to bring out the car's full potential will not find it slow by any measure. This is a 2.0-liter class car with performance comparable to cars in the next class up.
