XR GT Turbo is the XR GT with a larger engine, a turbocharger and upgraded bodywork.

Take the XR GT, enlarge the engine to a nice round 2 litres, chuck a turbocharger under the bonnet for good measure and give it some meaner bodywork, and the XR GT Turbo is born. Although infamous for it's turbo lag, it does actually drive very nicely once you have become used to its handling and rather unique power delivery. Old timers still call it the GTT.

License

The XR GT Turbo used to be a part of the demo version. It was removed in version 0.5Y in 2007 and replaced by Formula BMW FB02.

Setup tip

Just a touch of understeer is all that's need to control this car, once you've learnt to anticipate the turbo lag it's really just a more powerful XR GT.

Resemblance

The car body was inspired by the wide-bodied version of Mitsubishi Starion, while the interior was inspired by Mitsubishi 3000GT.
