The Super GT (stylized as SuperGT in GTA IV) is a sports car and grand tourer in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas and Grand Theft Auto IV. It's manufactured by Dewbauchee in GTA IV.

Design

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

In GTA San Andreas, the Super GT is based on a 1993 Mitsubishi 3000GT (front fascia) and a 1992 Toyota Supra MKIII (in overall body shape) while also featuring taillights similar to those of a 1993-2002 Toyota Supra (altough the Jester also resembles a Toyota Supra).

The Super GT can be modified at TransFender garages. There are two versions of this car; a hardtop and a targa top. Unlike the similar ZR-350, the Super GT does not have a no-spoiler variant. It is also one the most expensive cars to import in GTA San Andreas, along with the Bullet and the Cheetah, cashing in at $84,000. However, the player is awarded $105,000 when the car is exported in mint condition.

Badging on the Super GT.

In GTA IV, the Super GT is a grand tourer largely based on the Aston Martin DB9 and the Aston Martin V8 Vantage due to its greenhouse area, front and sides (except the vents) with huge design cues based off the Jaguar X150, the rear appears to have resemblance of that of the Aston Martin Vantage V600, Ferrari 612 Scaglietti or the Ferrari 575M Maranello.

The Super GT is available with differing hood designs, either featuring a relatively smooth hood, or one with a low U-shaped ridge. The interior features black leather and carpeting with bucket sports seats. The center console is finished in aluminum trim and features an analog timepiece. The Super GT also features a 6-speed shifter.

Performance

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

The Super GT has a top notch speed and acceleration. It's downside is that even when driving at low speeds, and despite its sharp turning, turning can cause wild fishtailing, especially at higher speeds. Furthermore, spinouts are inevitable with even the most minor of collisions. The tires are lack of grip. The Super GT does not have good durability either, and the vehicle will explode after only a few collisions. Therefore, the player should use caution while driving the car, turn slowly and gently, and avoid using it for any fast-speed maneuver. Unfortunately, this is the vehicle given to CJ for the final Driving School test, and also for the Freeway road race in Los Santos which renders these two missions exceedingly difficult to complete, even if CJ has 100% driving skill. All of these facts state that the Super GT is below average for a sports car of it's class. It weights 1400 kg, similar to cars like the Sultan, ZR350, Turismo, Banshee, and Comet.

Grand Theft Auto IV

SuperGT-GTA4-engine

Engine view in GTA IV.

In GTA IV, the Super GT has a top speed of 86 mph. The acceleration and speed of the Super GT are superior to many other cars in the game. The distinct sound of a supercharger can be heard at higher RPMs, which separates it from the other supercars. Also, because of its high horsepower to torque ratio, the car can easily be slid into a drift by a single tap of the e-brake (at moderate enough speeds), making the Super GT a great choice for drifting.

In the hands of a capable driver it makes an ideal getaway car. However, if not handled correctly, the drifts in the corners and the sheer power of the engine while in the heat of the moment can lead to spin outs, loss of control and crashes. This is because of the position of the engine, it is located in front of the driver rather than just in front of the rear axle. As the result, it puts more weight at the front, resulting in massive oversteer. The rather aggressive power distribution is also the factor resulting the oversteer. Because of the front engine, rear-wheel drive layout, stability is also pretty much inferior compared to the other sports cars.

Prominent appearances in missions

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

  • In GTA San Andreas, the Super GT is the vehicle assigned the player during the City Slicker portion of the Driving School test. Its poor handling makes the course even more challenging.

Grand Theft Auto IV

  • In GTA IV, during a car chase in one of Bernie Crane's missions, the Russian criminals drive a Super GT, while the character pursues them in a Turismo, as it is the car parked in front of Bernie's house. At the climax of the mission, the Russians hit a curb and crash their car, forcing them to leave the car and able to be taken out by Niko. Once they are dealt, the player can use the Turismo to flip the Super GT back on its wheels and use it to finish the mission. For its paint-job, it's a metallic carbon black tone with pearlescent of one of five colors: gray, blue, red, green, or pink, all of which are unique. It may or may not come with a hood ridge.
  • Another Super GT is also obtainable outside in the mission Trespass, being located at the main entrance of the abandoned Sprunk factory, where Niko must find and kill Chubby Charlie. However, attempting to obtain it will result in a mission fail and if one completes the mission without being collected, it will disappear. To obtain it easily, the player can move the car out to the street and proceed with the mission. When completed, the Super GT won't disappear and will be there.
  • As a part of the Stevie's Car Thefts missions, Stevie will ask you to procure a unique dark gray Super GT parked in front of the 69 Exchange in The Exchange, Algonquin. Before taking it to Stevie's garage, one ca save it in one of the parking spots and return for another in the same spot. However, for some reason, the car is stuck with the gray paint job when respraying it.
  • A Super GT appears in the Most Wanted side mission. Darren Covey is one of the targets who is seen in a deal with various criminals an one of the cars is a Super GT. Once the side mission is done, the player can take said Super GT, if not destroyed.
  • The Super GT may appear in a number of Drug Wars, featured with unique pearlescent colors.

Locations

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

Grand Theft Auto IV

The Super GT in GTA IV and TLAD is notably rare, being mostly available in specific missions, or by using a cheat code.

  • Can be found on the street next to the Bank of Liberty in The Exchange, Algonquin, for Stevie's Car Thefts.
  • Obtainable during the Bernie Crane mission Union Drive, and can spawn parked in front of the Sprunk Factory in Alderney during the Phil Bell mission Trespass.
  • One can be seen during Brucie's Races. One can kill the driver and steal it, but it will cancel the race.
  • Spawn in traffic in GTA IV's multiplayer.
  • Can be spawned by dialing 227-555-0168 on the phone. This does not affect any achievements.
  • During the mission No. 1, the player will be racing against two Super GT's. It's possible to obtain one of them without failing the mission, as well as keeping the special Comet as well. The player just have to win the race but with the cars coming behind and the Super GT's will be locked and without drivers. Then, the player can push one of them with the Comet to the parking area at the Hove Beach safehouse. The video reference can be found here.
  • It appears in the Most Wanted side mission. As stated above, the player must select Darren Covey and his location will have vehicles, with the Super GT as one of them.

The Lost and Damned

  • The Super GT doesn't appear normally in missions or in traffic. However, it can be obtained by dialing 227-555-0168 on the phone just like in GTA IV. This does not affect any achievements.

Trivia

General

  • The Super GT plays the following radio stations by default when entered:
  • The name of the car is likely inspired by the Super GT series in Japan. It is a grand touring car racing series that began in 1993.

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

  • The Super GT is one out of two supercars to have a permanent spawn point. The other being the Bullet.
  • Oddly enough, the Super GT has a utility horn, which is shared with the Tow Truck and Cabbie.
  • Upon close inspection, the Super GT shares the engine cosmetics with the Stratum, although the Stratum appears to have an air filter and a turbocharger fitted.
  • The body shape is similar to that of the Turismo.
  • The Super GT has the same engine sound as the Cheetah, Comet, and Turismo.

Grand Theft Auto IV and episodes

  • An earlier form of the Super GT in GTA IV features "Super GT" and "Asstone" badges in the rear. In its final form, however, only a Dewbauchee emblem is present in place.
  • The Super GT is featured in the GTA IV TV Spot for Xbox 360 as the car that Niko Bellic jacks at the end of the commercial.
  • Although the Super GT is branded as a Dewbauchee car, the LCPD police radio chatter refers to it as a Pfister.
  • The Super GT is one of the three most expensive cars in GTA IV, the others being the Turismo and the Infernus..
  • The BradyGames guide for Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City mistakenly refers to the Super GT as a new vehicle.
  • The Super GT, along with the Turismo, Infernus, Comet, Dukes, Contender, and Vigero (beater version only) are the only cars in GTA IV with no license plates.
  • Oddly, the side door speakers in the Super GT resemble the ones in the 2001-2005 Aston Martin V12 Vanquish.
  • In the interior of GTA IV's Super GT, one will find buttons surrounding the centered clock on the dashboard like in modern Aston Martin's. What is odd is that those buttons only come with the automatic transmission, but the Super GT appears to come equipped with a manual. [?]
