GTO

Launched in October 1990, the GTO came into being as a new-age super four-wheel drive sports car. The model was powered by a new 280PS 3.0 L V6 intercooled twin-turbo engine and naturally aspirated (NA) engine which used an electronically controlled variable inlet valve system. Twin-turbo engine variant used a Getrag 5-speed manual transmission The GTO delivered superb handling and stability thanks to a fulltime four-wheel drive driveline using a viscous coupling center differential to transmit all the engine torque to the road surface with a front-rear torque split of 45:55; MacPherson strut suspension at the front with a double wishbone arrangement at the rear; electronically controlled suspension which adjusted damping rates as required; and four-wheel steering system to operate rear wheels in the same direction as the front wheel at mid- to high-speed . Notable equipment features included an Active Aero System which automatically operates a front venturi cover and a variable rear spoiler while driving at high speed, as well as an Active Exhaust System which at the touch of a button switched the exhaust gas routing to the silencer for either a louder or quieter exhaust note.
