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.


GTA San Andreas

The Turismo debuted in GTA San Andreas, where it appears to be a mid-engined supercar based on the Ferrari F40 with a modified spoiler and rear design. The headlights resemble either those of the Ferrari 550 Maranello or the McLaren F1. Despite being a somewhat common car in the game, Less than 1,400 F40s exist in real life, making it about 7 times as rare as a Ferrari Testarossa. At $76,000, it is also far cheaper than a real Ferrari F40 was during those years, which had an MSRP of $470,000 and often sold for even more because of its rarity. F40 kit cars were also popular during the real F40's production run, which might explain why it is so common and inexpensive in the game.

Unlike the real-life F40, which has always been produced in the Rosso Scuderia (red) color (save for some other F40s which were repainted into other colors), the Turismo can come in a variety of colors.

GTA IV — GTA Chinatown Wars

The Grotti Turismo in GTA IV is based heavily on the Ferrari 360, with a few cues from 360 successor Ferrari F430 and the Vector M12. The headlights also bear a slight resemblance to those of the then-unreleased McLaren MP4-12C, although the MP4-12C didn't appear until 2010. 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. There are two aesthetic variants, one with flat slatted grills and another with scooped intakes, both located on the rear fenders.

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).

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.


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. However, being very fast, the Turismo's durability is average and is not recommended for pursuits at five stars or higher.

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 among one of the fastest cars in the game according to the game files; it has a maximum speed of 206 mph (331 km/h). 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 due to the Turismo's good brakes, but the car is susceptible to burnouts during cornering due to excess torque and its rear-wheel-drive system; this trait is not evident in the GTA Chinatown Wars rendition.


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.
