The Super GT is a sports car in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas and Grand Theft Auto IV.

Design

GTA San Andreas

In GTA San Andreas, the Super GT is based on a 1993 Mitsubishi 3000GT with the back of a 1993 Toyota Supra. The Super GT can be modified at TransFender garages. There are also two versions of this car; a hardtop and a targa top.

It is also one the most expensive cars to import in GTA San Andreas together with the Bullet and the Cheetah, cashing in at $84,000. However, the player is awarded $105,000 when he exports the car in mint condition.

GTA IV

In GTA IV, the Super GT (branded as a Dewbauchee car, although police radio chatter refers the Super GT as a Pfister) is an amalgamation of two or three sports cars. The front and side profiles appear to share design cues from both a modern Aston Martin DB9 and a Maserati GranTurismo, while the rear resembles that of a Ferrari 612. GTA IV's Super GT seems to be powered by a turbocharged 6 cylinder, as it shares an engine tone with the Comet. The Super GT may also be available with differing hood designs, either featuring a relatively smooth hood, or one with a low U-shaped ridge.

The F620 in The Ballad of Gay Tony shares some similarities to the Super GT.

Performance

GTA San Andreas

Acceleration and top speed are among the best in this game, but the handling is poor, especially at high speeds. The Super GT tends to fishtail wildly when using the E-brake around corners.

GTA IV

In GTA IV, the Super GT is the fifth-fastest in the game with a top speed is 200 mph (320km/t), and the acceleration and speed of the Super GT are superior to many other cars in the game. The distinct sound of a turbocharger can be heard at higher RPMs, which separates it from the other supercars. The Super GT is an excellent choice for its speed and for its brakes, which are powerful and don't lock up very easily. Also, because of its high horsepower to torque ratio, the car can easily be slid into a drift by a single tap of the E-Brake (at moderate enough speeds); making the Super GT a great choice for drifting.

The car's rank in performance is pushed further back with the introduction of faster sport cars in subsequent GTA IV episodes.

Prominent appearances in missions

During a car chase in one of Bernie Crane's missions, the Russian criminals drives a Super GT, while the character most likely drives a Turismo, as it is the car parked in front of Bernie's house. At the climax of the mission, the Russians hit a curb and crash their car, forcing you to get out of your Turismo and take them out on foot. Once they are dealt with you can steal the Super GT for yourself and save it. For its paintjob, it has a deep metallic version of one of five colors: gray, blue, red, green, or pink, all of which are unique. It may or may not come with a hood ridge.

Another Super GT is also obtainable outside in the mission "Trespass", being located at the main entrance of the abandoned Sprunk factory where you must find and kill Chubby Charlie. However if you complete the mission, and do not collect the car, it will disappear.

As a part of the Text Message Car Missions from Stevie, he will ask you to procure one parked in front of the "69 Exchange" in The Exchange, Algonquin. Before taking it to Stevie's garage, save it in one of your parking spots and wait for another to re-spawn. Then take the re-spawn to Stevie.

Trivia

  • The Super GT plays the following radio stations by default when entered:
  • The Bullet GT replaces the Super GT in The Ballad of Gay Tony multiplayer Race/GTA Race.
  • It is ironic when upon close inspection the Super GT shares the engine cosmetics with the Stratum although the Stratum appears to have an air filter and a turbocharger fitted.
  • The Super GT is one of the two most expensive cars in GTA IV, the other one being the Turismo.
  • In the BradyGames guide; Episodes From Liberty City, it mistakenly says that the Super GT is a new vehicle.
  • Russian Mafia in GTA IV sometimes uses Super GT in missions, like Union Drive and Trespass.
