In-game description

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

This is the 2nd generation Supra, Toyota's greatest pure sports model born at the time of a full model change in May 1993, and changed from a car which up to then had a strong personality as a high-speed long-distance tourer. The style also changed from the straight-line design of the previous generation models to a dynamic and massive style, a metamorphosis into something much more like a sports car. There were two types of power unit fitted into the cars. Firstly, there was the 3.0 litre in-line 6-cylinder DOHC engine fitted with a two-way twin turbo, which achieved the highest power and torque figures in Japan: a gigantic 280 ps/44 kgm. Secondly, there was the naturally aspirated version of the same engine; producing 225 ps/29.0 kgm. Combined with these engines was the first 6-speed manual transmission fitted in Japanese cars, the result of joint development with the Getrag company. However, in the case of the Supra, the point which attracted more attention than these figures was the high level of chassis performance. An important characteristic was that a sufficient amount of development time had been taken to achieve weight reduction and high stiffness in order to provide overwhelming running performance, and as a result the characteristics were there to achieve perfection as an FR car. Despite the high power going only to the rear wheels in both the turbo RZ and the naturally-aspirated SZ-R, the control characteristics were simplified. The acceleration was as expected, the basics of the car for turning and stopping were at quite a high level of performance, and all the elements making up the various 'feelings' in the car were extremely well refined. In the area of motor sports, the car plays an active part in the current All Japan GT Championships. At times it has exhibited a power which even the GT-R cannot match.
