    Legendary car that has been in GT since GT2. Must have to be premium.

    Specs:

    Length - 198 in (5029.2 mm)
    Width - 74 in (1879.6 mm)
    Height - 59 in (1498.6 mm)
    Weight - 1763.7 lbs (800 kg)
    Drivetrain - 4WD / Mid engined
    Horsepower - 981 hp

    I can't find any better images because they're all low-quality or small as hell.

    If you like Suzuki:

    Suzuki Alto Works Suzuki Sport Limited 1997 (premium suggestion)

    If you like rally cars:

    Mitsubishi Pajero Rally Raid Car 1985 (premium suggestion)

    To be completely honest, I've kinda OD'd on the Escudo since it has been included in every GT game since number 2, so I'd rather see the Cultus Pikes Peak make a return to GT, but still a premium upgrade wouldn't hurt.

    Why not PREMIUM, this car is the favourite of Mr. Kazunori Yamauchi!

    This car is one of the longest-living GT survivors, and this thing is not yet premium.

    Voted. This car needs respect.

    Another suggestion for this car. Suzuki Escudo Pikes Peak began to fail from GT4 to the current GT6 because it runs very slow and thus began: GT4 (371km/h), GTPSP (306km/h), GT5 (325km/h) and GT6 (360km/h). When it was first included in GT2 was very fast when it reached 400km/h in GT3 430km/h. Should correct this fault and return to being faster this car, and reformed to premium

    In fact, it could actually reach 2,000km/h using a wheelie tune on GT3, great fun :D

    An all time Gran Turismo Classic cars has only 35 votes? shouldn't this be like Triple the amount or even more?

    Yes, because a 15 year old physics engine is going to be the height of realism. :rolleyes:

    Just so you know, it order to get a standard Vitara to do 430km/h you'd need to give it nearly 2,000hp - about 1,900, according to a quick calculation. This one has a massive wing on the back adding drag simply by existing and wings front and rear adding downforce - which add more drag. I think you'd need over 2,500hp to compensate.

    To do a mere 360km/h would need about 1,300hp, whereas 325km/h would need only about 900hp. So it turns out that the "fault" was with the earlier games - and GT5 was the closest to reality.

    Tis' a pity that PD didn't also apply those physics to the 310 mph Alfa TZ3's, GT-R Nismo's and Huayra's...

    I think that's down to the fact the realism of the car has been added and there for more realistic. In GT2 they didn't really have the real characteristics of the car. there for it was crazy fast.

    What I will say about GT2 is they at least nailed how incredibly hard the damn thing would be to control.

    Too easy in later games, but then every fast car is from GT3 onwards.

    That monster (no pun with "Monster" Tajima intended) needs to be premium ASAP!

    They certainly won't be bringing this to GT Sport most likely.
