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 (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 (97 km/h) 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.
The Savage Rivale GTR was introduced in the San Diego Harbor Update as a mid-end Class A car with the following statistics:
- Starting rank: 1442
- This is identical to that of the Lamborghini Egoista as both cars have the exact same top speed and nitro stat distribution at stock.
- MAX rank: 1619 (+177)
- This is identical to that of the Mazzanti Evantra as both cars have the exact same top speed and nitro distribution at MAX.
- MAX+PRO rank: 1701 (+82)
- Tuning Kit bonus: +41
- Stock to MAX+PRO rank difference: 259
- Upgrade Rank Percentages: 15/45/10/30
- Nitro Efficiency: 8/13/18
The Savage Rivale GTR is an acceleration-biased car with a maximum total speed of 282.5 mph/454.9 km/h at MAX+PRO with a Tuning Kit. Upon its release, it was the fastest accelerating car in the game, although it has since been outclassed by later cars like the Shelby Cobra 427, TRION NEMESIS, McLaren Mercedes MP4-25, and Rezvani Beast Alpha. It also features great overall handling and drifting capabilities, but its major shortcomings are its subpar nitro efficiency and low raw top speed when compared to cars with similar ranks or total speeds.
The S-R GTR's closest rivals are the McLaren P1™, Zenvo ST1, Falcon F7, Lotus Evora Sport 410, SCG 003S, and Nissan GT-R NISMO. It has stronger acceleration compared to these cars and a higher total speed than everything listed except the F7 (283.1 mph/455.8 km/h), SCG (283.9 mph/457.1 km/h), and NISMO (284.5 mph/458.1 km/h), but it has a lower raw top speed by comparison. Only the ST1 has worse nitro efficiency at Level 1, with 9. While being marginally better on short tracks, the S-R GTR is jeopardized by its lower raw top speed and worse overall nitro efficiency, which can prove a threat to the car's performance on longer tracks.
In addition, despite having a lower total speed by 3.8 mph/6.2 km/h, the McLaren MP4/8 is much superior over the S-R GTR due to having much faster acceleration, better raw top speed, sharper overall handling, and a much more efficient nitro (5/10/15).
The Lamborghini Egoista acts as a stat upgrade to the S-R GTR, but with faster acceleration and a slightly higher nitro speed above MAX+PRO.
Upon its release, the S-R GTR was the best Class A car on short or medium-length tracks, but since the inception of the Ferrari 330 P4 and later cars, the S-R GTR's dominance has faded into nothing. However, it is still competitive in a few Event brackets, but is otherwise outclassed by the likes of the McLaren 650S GT3 and Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4.
The S-R GTR is not recommended for use in Multiplayer, despite its strong acceleration, as it will still easily be beaten by cars like the Apollo Intensa Emozione, Aston Martin Vulcan, 2018 McLaren X2, Porsche Carrera GT, and Audi R8 e-tron Special Edition.

The S-R GTR could be used to grind Credits in Season 9: Beyond due to its track being San Diego Harbor, but there are better and/or cheaper choices like the Porsche Cayman GT4, McLaren 675LT, 2018 McLaren X2, Apollo Intensa Emozione, and Pagani Huayra BC, whether for grinding in Season 9 or via Car Mastery.
The S-R GTR is one of the Enduro Vehicles in the Falcon F7's Enduro Double Down event.
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 Savage Rivale GTR would win 100,000 instead.
