The Suzuki Escudo Pikes Peak Version was designed for competition, specifically for hill climb events. It was given a bodyshell to resemble the Escudo, built atop a spaceframe, fitted with four-wheel drive, and powered by an engine tuned to produce an astonishing 987 horsepower. The car had large aerodynamic aids to help it stay stable at speed.

Along with its fabulous racing career, it has also stared in the popular video game, Gran Turismo, where it was listed as the Pikes Peak Edition. Suzuki never referred to it using that name.

The Pikes Peak International Hill Climb takes place in Colorado. The course is 12.35 miles long, begins at an elevation of 9,200 feet and finishes at 14,100 feet. There are 156 corners throughout the course.

There is only one cooler one than this, too: the Peugeot 405 T16.

EDIT: Now I want to start playing DiRT again.

That vehicle is a nice looking one. It kinda lacks something, but rest assured if you installed some good 4 Wheel Drive Parts on that vehicle, things would be different. But yep, it looks like a car in a video game of sorts!
