The Futo is based on the 1984-1987 AE86 Toyota Corolla Levin GT-Apex AE86 Coupe, with the tail lights bearing striking resemblance to a first generation SEAT Toledo. The badging on the side ("N/A Inline 20v RWD", subtitled with "Quad Throttle Body", "High Performance Injection", and "Limited Slip Differential") indicates that it is equipped with a 20-valve engine, akin to Toyota's 4A-GE 1.6L Black or Silvertop engine (this engine did not actually appear until 1991; however, it was a popular modification for the AE86), and is configured with a rear wheel drive with a limited slip differential (possibly contributing to the car's excellent handling). It is much more powerful than the normal 16 valve 4A-GE equipped in the AE86 during it's production.
The car is very well detailed, from the interior to the individual throttle bodies and the RS Watanabe F8 wheel option (likely in reference to the popular Watanabe RS wheels for the AE86 Corolla).
The Futo is powered by what appears to be a 1.6L high revving I4, paired with a five-speed gearbox in a rear-wheel drive configuration. Acceleration is above average, and its top speed of 145 km/h (90 mph) is staggeringly quick. The chassis is firm and taut, giving the Futo stability at high speeds, and the ability to be thrown around for a bit of flair. Its suspension is firm, keeping the Futo flat in banked corners and stable in the S-curves. Braking is acceptable, and front-wheel lock-up is not a big issue compared to other vehicles; however, ABS is not available. The Futo handles well off-road and can reach about 75% of its top speed on dirt roads and beaches. Crash deformation is also acceptable, though build quality is sub-par, often leaving the Futo disabled after just a few accidents.
All in all the Futo is great fun to drive, and makes an excellent escape or pursuit vehicle in missions. It is also an ideal car to drift since it is a light weight, front engine rear wheel drive car. The only possible disadvantages during a pursuit or escape is that the vehicle is small, lacking the power to move other vehicles, and only has two doors, rather than four.
