The Turismo is a supercar featured in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Grand Theft Auto IV and Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, appearing in different forms in each game.

Description

GTA San Andreas

The Turismo debuted in GTA San Andreas, where it appears to be a mid-engined sports car based on the Ferrari F40 with a modified spoiler and rear design. Although the F40 is rear wheel drive, the Turismo is 4-wheel-drive. Regardless, it is one of the fastest and best handling cars in the game. The engine in the Turismo in GTA San Andreas could very well be a Twin Turbo V8, just like the F40, because it sounds and performs just like it.

GTA IV — GTA Chinatown Wars

The Turismo is also a driveable vehicle in GTA IV, based on the Ferrari 360, and the similarly designed Ferrari F430, the rear seems to be a modernized adaption of the previous Turismo. In the game, the car is manufactured by the fictional company Grotti, the GTA equivalent to Ferrari. There are two aesthetic variants, one with flat slatted grills and another with scooped intakes, both over the rear wheels. All Turismos in GTA IV come with horn alarms, but the one at Mikhail Faustin's house will not trigger when Niko opens the door because it is unlocked. However, if you damage the car in any way, the alarm will go off regardless of whether you're in the car or not.

In GTA Chinatown Wars, two variants of the Turismo exist; one being a regular variant bearing a likeness to GTA IV's Turismo, and a black "Mob" gang variant that is more alike a Coquette in body design; in other respects, both variants stack up equally in terms of performance.

According to Autoeroticar.com, the car's engine in GTA IV is a 4.0L Quad Cam V8. It is one of the fastest cars in the game; according to the game files it has a maximum speed of 215mph, the second-fastest of the supercars, slightly faster than the Infernus and second only to the Comet; the tremendous speed of this vehicle can also eject the player through the windshield quite easily in GTA IV. Handling of the car is acceptable, with the car being susceptible to burnouts during cornering due to excess torque and rear wheel drive; this trait is not evident in the GTA Chinatown Wars rendition. The car is also the easiest supercar to find in GTA IV (See Locations below).
