=== Design ===
+
The Futo is based on the [[wp:Toyota AE86|1983-1987 Toyota Corolla Levin]] (AE86) GT-APEX/GT-V/SR Coupe and the front, some parts, the shape and the paintjob in a 1983-1985 [[wp:Nissan Skyline#R30|Nissan Skyline DR30 RS Turbo]]. The Futo's steering wheel is similar to a MOMO MOD. 07 racing steering wheel, while the dash exactly replicates real-life AE86 dash. This is also shared with the [[Blista Compact]].
The [[Futo]] is based on the 1984-1987 AE86 [[wikipedia:Toyota AE86|Toyota Corolla Levin]] GT-Apex Coupe (Probably why it is called 'Futo' as Toyota is a Japanese make of vehicle and Futo is a Japanese word) and the front and some parts in a 1983-1985 [http://philscarblog.files.wordpress.com/2009/09/oono-dr30.jpg%7C Nissan Skyline DR30]. The badging on the side [[File:Futo_badges.png|thumb|Badging on the Futo.]]("N/A Inline 20v RWD", subtitled with "Quad Throttle Body", "High Performance Injection", and "Limited Slip Differential") indicates that it is equipped with a 20-valve engine, akin to Toyota's 4A-GE 1.6L Black or Silvertop engine (this engine did not actually appear until 1991; however, it was a popular modification for the AE86), and is configured with a rear wheel drive with a limited slip differential (possibly contributing to the car's excellent handling). It is much more powerful than the normal 16 valve 4A-GE equipped in the AE86 during it's production.
 
   
The car is very well detailed, from the interior to the individual throttle bodies and the RS Watanabe F8 wheel option (likely in reference to the popular [http://www.watanabewheel.com/ Watanabe RS] wheels for the AE86 Corolla and the Skyline DR30). It even has a different tread design for its tires, ones that well suit asphalt racing and drifting. These tires are found on much higher end cars such as the Sentinel XS and the Super GT. The interior door panels have "FUTO" repeatedly in a pattern on the fabric. And the engine has FUTO written on it too.[[File:Futo-GTAV-trailer-2.png|thumb|Part of a Futo in second trailer.]]

===Performance===
+
It has a similar design to the [[3D Universe]] renditions of the [[Manana]] and [[Blista Compact]], particularly the [[GTA San Andreas]] versions. In addition, the Futo's rear lights look very similar to that of the [[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City|Vice City]] and [[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories|Vice City Stories]] renditions of the [[Police Car]] and [[Taxi]].
The [[Futo]] is powered by a naturally-aspirated 1.4-litre inline-4 engine, with five valves per cylinder and a five-speed manual gearbox in a rear-wheel drive configuration. Acceleration is this car's party piece, getting to 60mph in just 6.6 seconds. The top speed is astonishing for a car of this stature, achieving 165mph (265km/h). The chassis is firm and taut, giving the [[Futo]] stability at high speeds. The suspension is firm but not too firm, keeping the [[Futo]] flat in banked corners and stable in the S-curves, while still giving a firm, yet enjoyable ride. Couple the excellent suspension setup with the short wheelbase and you get a fantastically chuckable little pocket rocket, capable of competing with full-on sports cars. The brakes are sensitive and effective, and front-wheel lock-up is not a big issue compared to other vehicles; however, ABS is not available and so a little finesse will be needed with the brake to stop lockup. Due to no ABS braking can be extremely dangerous in the rain. The [[Futo]] handles well off-road and can reach about 75% of its top speed on dirt roads and beaches, and grip is impressive even with rear wheel drive, while others of the same drive may fishtail easily. Crash deformation is above average, though build quality is sub-par, often leaving the [[Futo]] disabled after just a few accidents.
 
   
All in all the [[Futo]] is great fun to drive, and makes an excellent escape or pursuit vehicle in missions. It is also an ideal car to drift since it is a light weight, front engine rear wheel drive car and is a very easy car to be put into one. The only possible disadvantages during a pursuit or escape is that the vehicle is small, lacking the power to move other vehicles, and only has two doors, rather than four.
+
The Futo is considered a tuning car, as its visual can be highly modified (body kit, spoiler, hood), as well as the performance. Also, the Futo is classed as a Sports, rather than Coupes or Compacts, despite its relatively small shape. This is most likely because of its superior performance compared to other cars in its class.

The Futo is powered by a naturally-aspirated, high revving 1.4-litre inline-4 engine coupled to a five-speed manual gearbox in a rear-wheel drive configuration. The badging on the side ("N/A Inline 20v RWD", subtitled with "Quad Throttle Body", "High Performance Injection", and "Limited Slip Differential") indicates that it is equipped with a 20-valve engine. Acceleration is this car's party piece. The top speed is astonishing for a car of this stature, given its rather unique engine with four Throttle Bodies. The chassis is rigid and taut, giving the Futo stability at high speeds.

The Futo seems to be improved with higher top speed and acceleration, yet it retains most of the quailities seen in the ''GTA IV'' version. Although it's not as effective as most sports cars in the game and its noticeably outclassed by supercars, the Futo is still an excellent choice to go around and as a getaway vehicle.

+
The modified variant of the Futo called 'Futo GT' is based on Toyota AE86 Levin GT-S and Nissan Skyline DR30 RS-Turbo. It can be commonly found in [[Little Bay]] and is also rarely found in other areas of [[Bohan]]. It's name comes from the 'GT' badge on the front grill, but the game still refers to the car simply as "Futo" when entered. Its performance is identical to the stock car's, cause it shares the same handing lines and uses the same car model, albeit using other car components to get the different look. It's modifications feature a small body kit, a rear boot lip spoiler, a carbon-fiber hood, a roll cage, a strut bar mounted over the engine, a racing seat on the driver's side, an upgraded tachometer, and an additional 'Inline 20v' badge under the right side rear light. The car also includes a larger, blue titanium exhaust tip, an offset driver's side front license plate and finally a red tow clip, similar to those used on track cars on the passenger side of the front bumper. It always spawns in red and black, but can be resprayed any color.

+
Although these Futos are distinct from typical models, all Futos have 'Futo GT' written on the interior of the doors, presumably to save texture memory. Same as all Sentinels have the 'STD' from the Sentinel XS on their front fenders.
   
The game still refers to the car simply as the Futo when the player enters it, and its performance is almost identical to the stock car's. The Futo GT is only seen in red and black (it looks like the Skyline), but can be resprayed any color. This may be because the car that the Futo is based on, (Toyota AE86 Levin and Nissan Skyline DR30 RS-Turbo), has also a GT model as well as an SR model.

Latest revision as of 12:20, May 2, 2016


The Karin Futo is a compact tuner sports coupe in Grand Theft Auto IV, Grand Theft Auto V, and Grand Theft Auto Online.

Design Edit

The Futo is based on the 1983-1987 Toyota Corolla Levin (AE86) GT-APEX/GT-V/SR Coupe and the front, some parts, the shape and the paintjob in a 1983-1985 Nissan Skyline DR30 RS Turbo. The Futo's steering wheel is similar to a MOMO MOD. 07 racing steering wheel, while the dash exactly replicates real-life AE86 dash. This is also shared with the Blista Compact.

The car is very well detailed, from the interior to the individual throttle bodies and the RS Watanabe F8 wheel option (likely in reference to the popular Watanabe RS wheels for the AE86 Corolla and the Skyline DR30). It even has a different tread design for its tires, ones that well suit asphalt racing and drifting. These tires are found on much higher end cars such as the Sentinel XS and the Super GT. The interior door panels have "FUTO" repeatedly in a pattern on the fabric.

It has a similar design to the 3D Universe renditions of the Manana and Blista Compact, particularly the GTA San Andreas versions. In addition, the Futo's rear lights look very similar to that of the Vice City and Vice City Stories renditions of the Police Car and Taxi.

The Futo is considered a tuning car, as its visual can be highly modified (body kit, spoiler, hood), as well as the performance. Also, the Futo is classed as a Sports, rather than Coupes or Compacts, despite its relatively small shape. This is most likely because of its superior performance compared to other cars in its class.

In GTA IV, after collecting all thirty cars for Stevie, he agrees to purchase the cars from Niko, with the Futo fetching $1,400.

Performance Edit

Grand Theft Auto IVEdit

The Futo is powered by a naturally-aspirated, high revving 1.4-litre inline-4 engine coupled to a five-speed manual gearbox in a rear-wheel drive configuration. The badging on the side ("N/A Inline 20v RWD", subtitled with "Quad Throttle Body", "High Performance Injection", and "Limited Slip Differential") indicates that it is equipped with a 20-valve engine. Acceleration is this car's party piece. The top speed is astonishing for a car of this stature, given its rather unique engine with four Throttle Bodies. The chassis is rigid and taut, giving the Futo stability at high speeds. The suspension is firm but not too much, keeping the Futo flat in banked corners and stable in the S-curves, while still giving a stiff, yet enjoyable ride.

Couple the excellent suspension setup with the short wheelbase and you get a fantastically chuckable little pocket rocket, capable of competing with full-on sports cars. The brakes are sensitive and effective, and front-wheel lock-up is not a big issue compared to other vehicles. Braking can be extremely dangerous in the rain. The Futo handles well off-road and can reach about 75% of its top speed on dirt roads and beaches, and grip is impressive even with rear wheel drive, while others of the same drive may fishtail easily. Crash deformation is above average, though build quality is sub-par, often leaving the Futo disabled after just a few accidents.

All in all, the Futo is great fun to drive, and makes an excellent escape or pursuit vehicle in missions. It is also an ideal car to drift since it is a light weight, front engine rear wheel drive car and is a very easy car to be put into one. The only possible disadvantages during a pursuit or escape is that the vehicle is small, lacking the power to ram or hit other vehicles out of the way, and the fact that it only has space for two occupants.

Performance Stats on Rockstar Games Social Club.

The Futo seems to be improved with higher top speed and acceleration, yet it retains most of the quailities seen in the GTA IV version. Although it's not as effective as most sports cars in the game and its noticeably outclassed by supercars, the Futo is still an excellent choice to go around and as a getaway vehicle.

VariantsEdit

Futo GTEdit

The modified variant of the Futo called 'Futo GT' is based on Toyota AE86 Levin GT-S and Nissan Skyline DR30 RS-Turbo. It can be commonly found in Little Bay and is also rarely found in other areas of Bohan. It's name comes from the 'GT' badge on the front grill, but the game still refers to the car simply as "Futo" when entered. Its performance is identical to the stock car's, cause it shares the same handing lines and uses the same car model, albeit using other car components to get the different look. It's modifications feature a small body kit, a rear boot lip spoiler, a carbon-fiber hood, a roll cage, a strut bar mounted over the engine, a racing seat on the driver's side, an upgraded tachometer, and an additional 'Inline 20v' badge under the right side rear light. The car also includes a larger, blue titanium exhaust tip, an offset driver's side front license plate and finally a red tow clip, similar to those used on track cars on the passenger side of the front bumper. It always spawns in red and black, but can be resprayed any color.

Although these Futos are distinct from typical models, all Futos have 'Futo GT' written on the interior of the doors, presumably to save texture memory. Same as all Sentinels have the 'STD' from the Sentinel XS on their front fenders.

In GTA V, the Futo can be modded at Los Santos Customs to resemble the GT variant in GTA IV.

Special VariantsEdit

Futos are used in the Gang Wars, but these come with different modifications.
