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.

Design

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.

GTA IV — GTA Chinatown Wars

The Grotti Turismo in GTA IV is based heavily on the Ferrari 360, with few cues from the similarly designed Ferrari F430; the rear fascia, however, consists of a sleek taillight-radiator cluster, with four-sided taillights (as opposed to the 360's circular lights). The rims, which resemble three-piece O-Z Racing Superleggera rims, are installed over cross-drilled brake rotors. The Turismo also lacks an external rod antenna.

The Turismo's interior features two bucket sport seats and full leather appointments finished in classic Ferrari tan. The car also features a fully-carpeted boot in front of the cabin with ample space for luggage (which will be revealed after significantly damaging the front of the car.

There are two aesthetic variants, one with flat slatted grills and another with scooped intakes, both located on the rear fenders. 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.

The Turismo in GTA Chinatown Wars, being similar to GTA IV's Turismo, is similarly modeled after the Ferrari 360.

Performance

GTA San Andreas

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

According to Autoeroticar.com, the car's engine in GTA IV is a high-revving 4.0L Quad Cam V8. It is the second fastest car in the game according to the game files, it has a maximum speed of 214 Mph, it's one of the fastest of the supercars, second only to the Comet, tying with the Coquette, (but the Coquette is faster off the line) and beating Infernus down to third, 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 do to the Turismo good brakes, but the car is susceptible to burnouts during cornering due to excess torque and it's 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).

Variants

In GTA IV, a Turismo is requested as part of Stevie's Car Thefts, with a uniquely metallic beige body color. As a new Turismo will respawn at the same spot until the player delivers one to S&M Auto Sales, the player can save one at their safehouse before delivering another.

In GTA Chinatown Wars, a second distinct variant of the Turismo exists as a gang car for the "Mob". Available only in black, the "Mob" Turismo is more alike a Coquette in body design; in other respects, the "Mob" variant stack up evenly with the regular Turismo in terms of performance.
