The Turismo is a two-door sports car featured in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Grand Theft Auto IV and its episodes and Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars. It is manufactured by Grotti in the HD Universe.


Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

The Turismo in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas is mostly based on the Ferrari F40, with a modified spoiler and sloped, square tail lights. The spoiler bears a striking resemblance to the one seen on the 1971 Dodge Daytona prototype, albeit shorter and more rounded. The front fascia resembles the Ferrari F512M and the front lights look very close to those of the Ferrari F40, albeit the Turismo has one set of front lights, meanwhile the F40 has two.

The car assumes a sleek and aerodynamic design comparable to the Super GT, where the front bumper features a wide intake in the centre and two smaller ones on the outer edges. The area above the bumper has a set of headlamps consisting of dual units and a smaller one between the two, along with a front boot lid that bears a wide intake in the centre and a silver detail on the front.

On the sides, the car has silver details on the front fenders and what look like small indicators above the bumper area, while the rear fenders have curved intakes and small exit vents. The glasshouse area is relatively large and features a large windscreen with the corresponding wipers and black separations for the rear quarter windows, while the rear window exposes the rear engine. A set of wing mirrors can be seen below the A-pillars of the cabin, as well as the fuel cap on the rear-right portion (between the door and the wheel arch).

The rear of the car features a tall spoiler by default, while the rear end has a black vented section in the centre with a silver detail on it, and dual tail lamps beside the same vented section. The bumper area features small reverse lamps on the edges and a number plate appearing to emulate European number plates (smaller than the conventional number plates of most vehicles). Another vented section housing a single central exhaust is seen below.

The Turismo is seen in a variety of single colours, being applied to the entire body and the spoiler.

Grand Theft Auto IV

The Turismo in Grand Theft Auto IV is based heavily on the Ferrari 360, and to a lesser extent, the Ferrari F430. The front fascia also heavily resembles the McLaren 12C, although the resemblance is coincidental. The rims resemble the three-piece OZ Racing Superleggera rims.

The Turismo gains a major redesign compared to its previous iteration, but remains an aerodynamic sports car. On the front, the car features a CFRP extender/splitter at the bottom, whose outer edges are slightly higher in height than the central portion. The bumper area makes use of an impressed formation that spans about half the car's width and mesh grilles/intakes on each side of the frontal area, followed by narrower intakes on the far edges bearing thin strakes and a distinctive accent line that splits the frontal and upper portions of the same bumper. On the upper area, the car mounts black headlamp housings on the outer sides that are behind transparent casings, each one containing dual circular units with a silver surrounding, while the front boot lid bears the Grotti logo on the front and is generally flatter in shape, in comparison to the portions beside it. The same lid opens to reveal a fully-carpeted boot in front of the cabin with ample space for luggage.

The sides of the car are denoted by impressed formations passing through the doors, which create an upswept shape on the end and house narrow intakes, while thin accent lines are seen aligned with the bumper's accent line and become seemingly thinner as they approach the rear, until they merge with the rest of the bodywork around the rear wheel arch areas. The mirror shells can be seen on each side of the car near the A-pillars, while discreet door handles are visible on the rearmost seams, just above the accent lines. The glasshouse area bears black trims around the windows and inner separations for the rear-quarter windows, while the rear has a long hatch with a large window exposing the engine bay. The roof bears an impressed area in the centre, running longitudinally.

The rear of the car has a curved profile and features a mesh radiator/exit vent in the centre that bears the Grotti logo, while the end of the rear hatch bears silver "TURISMO" lettering. Right beside the central vent, there are large tail lamps divided into four units, with the upper ones being outer main units and inner brake units, and the lower ones being outer turn indicators and inner reverse units. The bumper slightly juts out from the rest of the rear overhang and features a CFRP section with two diffuser blades and a bulky section housing dual exhaust tubes.

The Turismo's interior features two bucket sport seats and full leather appointments finished in classic tan, as well as CFRP finish on part of the door cards and the engine bay. The "TURISMO" badge can be seen on the floor when the doors are open, and blurry badging can be seen on the dial cluster, glovebox compartment and horn cap. A small window is seen between the cabin area and the engine bay.

The Turismo will appear either with flat slatted grilles or with scooped intakes, both located on the rear fenders, and it spawns in a variety of single colours applied to the entire body. It uses a set of 12-spoke rims with bolt details on the outer section, wrapped in medium-profile tyres. A set of cross-drilled brake rotors and red calipers are seen through the rims.

Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars

The Turismo in Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars retains the GTA IV appearance, with a few cues from the Corvette C6. A billboard at the Auto merchant further supports the fact of the Turismo resembling the GTA IV rendition. The GTA Chinatown Wars rendition also bears a resemblance to the Coquette, which is especially noticeable in the PSP & mobile versions.

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

The Turismo is one of the fastest and best handling cars in the game, second only to the Infernus. The handling has a little understeer, yet an amount that is still acceptable. Power distribution has a balance between smooth and rough, making it fun to drive while still being controllable. The all-wheel drive improves handling, making the car less prone to oversteer. One can try offroading with it, but the low ground clearance disqualifies the vehicle from driving on very uneven terrain.

The engine appears to be a V6 equipped with three carburetors/throttle bodies on top, which is coupled to a 5-speed gearbox in a mid engine, all wheel drive layout. It is possible that each of the throttle body is intended to supply a pair of cylinders, unlike those of the Bullet, where each throttle body supplies a single cylinder. It uses the high-revving engine sound from high-end sports cars such as the Infernus.

Grand Theft Auto IV

Handling of the car is arguably one of the best of all cars in GTA IV, due to the Turismo's good brakes and near-perfect weight distribution. The car is almost never susceptible to burnouts during cornering due to excess torque, owing to its weight distribution and rear-wheel drive drivetrain. Thanks to its mid engine layout, the car can turn corners sharply. It is one of the easiest supercars to drive in the game. The mid engine layout also means that it is shielded from frontal impacts and mildly shielded from rear impacts making it a very durable car. Overall, due to its durability, speed and handling, it is well suited for all purposes. Just keep in mind that it does not do a good job of absorbing bullets, but shielded in the front and rear.

According to, the Turismo's engine in GTA IV is a high-revving 4.0L Quad Cam V8 fitted to 5-speed manual transmission. Its engine model is roughly similar to that of the Infernus of the same game, with "GROTTI" printed on the cam covers. True to the website statement, it is coupled to a 5-speed manual gearbox in a rear engine, rear wheel drive layout. The website also specifies that the vehicle features ABS, which is somewhat complemented with the fact that the wheels rarely lock under braking pressure (unless the car encounters a significant bump on the road), as well as having good steering capabilities while braking. It has a unique engine sound, being high-revving and high-pitched, yet with a rather quiet tone compared to the one used on the Infernus, the Comet and the SuperGT.

Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars

The Turismo still performs very well like in GTA IV, still being an easy car to drive. The vehicle has good brakes and near-perfect weight distribution. The car is almost never susceptible to burnouts during cornering due to excess torque, owing to its weight distribution and rear-wheel drive drivetrain. The car can turn corners sharply and the mid engine layout also means that it is shielded from frontal impacts and mildly shielded from rear impacts making it a very durable car. Similarly to GTA IV, the Turismo has low resistance to gunfire.

The CityScape is a modified version of the Turismo, with a custom paintjob, a spoiler and a neon underglow, it also handles better than the standard Turismo.

Special Variants

  • In Grand Theft Auto 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. Stevie will pay up to $36,300 for it, if the car is in pristine condition.
  • In Grand Theft Auto: 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 aspects, the "Mob" variant stack up evenly with the regular Turismo in terms of performance.

Prominent Appearances in Missions

  • In The Ballad of Gay Tony, when Luis Lopez calls Henrique Bardas for a Turismo, Luis will pronounce the car as /tu-ri-mo/.
  • While playing GTA IV, one can sometimes see people trying to fix their damaged Turismo (smoke coming out of the engine), but while the engine is in the back of the car, they have the front boot open instead.
  • In the beta version of GTA IV, the Turismo had different rims (resembling the rims found on its real-life counterpart, the Ferrari 360) and had a small spoiler on the rear.
  • According to the Auto Eroticar website, the Turismo was manufactured in 2001.
    • On the same website, the Turismo is shown with a spoiler.
