The Savage Rivale GTR, built on the Savage Rivale Roadyacht GTS, has been enhanced for track performance.
While the Roadyacht GTS packed the Chevrolet Corvette C6 Z06's 7.0 L (7,011 cc) V8 tuned to 600 HP (608 PS; 447 kW), the Savage Rivale GTR instead packs the Chevrolet Corvette C6 ZR1's 6.2 L V8 with a turbocharger in place of the supercharger and produces up to 800 hp (597 kW) and 575 ft·lb (780 N·m) of torque.
The Savage Rivale GTR is equipped with a six-speed manual transmission and is rear-wheel-drive. It is constructed from a chrome moly chassis and uses xenon lights. The suspension used is a double wishbone suspension with a fully adjustable coilover system, and Brembo ceramic brakes are used.
On the inside, the Savage Rivale GTR has a carbon fiber finish and Recaro race seats with 6 point safety belts.
The car is stated to do 0-60 mph within 2.7 seconds and reach a top speed of 224 mph (360 km/h). Only 69 units were planned to be built, with five road-legal versions named the Savage Rivale GTR-S.
Introduced in the San Diego Harbor Update, the Savage Rivale GTR is the only Class A car added in that update and the second Dutch car in the game.
Currently a mid-high end car in its class, the Savage Rivale GTR starts at rank 1442 (shared with the Lamborghini Egoista), maxes out at 1619 (shared with the Mazzanti Evantra and Nissan GTR NISMO), and has a MAX+PRO rank of 1701. The car receives a decent Tuning Kit bonus of +41 rank points. The Savage Rivale GTR's main rivals are the McLaren P1™, Lamborghini Asterion, Falcon F7, and Lamborghini Huracán.
Owing to its lightweight chassis, the Savage Rivale GTR still remains one of the fastest-accelerating cars in the game, albeit now outclassed by later cars like the Audi R8 LMS Ultra, TRION NEMESIS, Donkervoort D8 GTO, Lamborghini Egoista, McLaren MP4/8, and McLaren Mercedes MP4-25. As expected of a race car, the Savage Rivale GTR has excellent handling and drifting capabilities. Conversely, as usually is the case, the Savage Rivale GTR's nitro runs out more quickly than its road-legal counterpart (8/13/18 vs 6/12/16). The Savage Rivale GTR is a car intended for use on short and/or technical tracks.
Be careful, though, on long tracks, as these tracks are where the Savage Rivale GTR is at a disadvantage – as stated, its nitro efficiency (8/13/18) leaves it prone to having to drift on long straights to regain nitro, up to the point where cars like the McLaren P1, Lamborghini Asterion, McLaren 570S, Falcon F7, and (obviously) the Mercedes-AMG GT3, McLaren MP4/8 and W Motors Lykan HyperSport will catch up and overtake it, especially due to the Savage Rivale GTR's less-than-average top speed; in fact, its top speed is only very similar to the Ferrari LaFerrari and Ferrari 599XX.
The Savage Rivale GTR is priced at 750,000 or 5,000 for purchase and 2,848,900 for MAX. Seeing as to how expensive the Savage Rivale GTR is to max out compared to most other cars above it, the Savage Rivale GTR is now no longer the best choice for a Class A car, as it now has been superseded by later cars like the BMW 3.0 CSL Hommage and it is inferior to even some top-end Class B cars like the McLaren MP4/8.
The Savage Rivale GTR was also part of the 23rd Multiplayer Season, Garden Season 2 as a Champion League reward. Players who already had the Rivale GTR would win 100,000 instead.
