"Luxury and driving comfort overwhelming others. This supremely luxury saloon that has only one in the world is this G00.
The title of Double 0, which was attached in the sense that it is unparalleled and not otherwise possible, represents the confidence of GNADE"
- Ridge Racer 6 website.
The Gnade G00 is Gnade's concept super-saloon, featured in both Ridge Racer 6 and 7. According to Ridge Racer 7's description of the car, the double zeroes in the "G00" name means that there is no other car like it. Powered by a turbocharged engine that sends its power to a 7-speed transmission, this luxobarge is by no means slow, as it can reach over 200 mph. However, compared to other Special Machines, the G00 is completely average.

In Ridge Racer 7, being a Special Machine means that one cannot visually customize the car (with the exception of liveries, exterior and wheel paint, headlights and window tint), or enhance its performance. It is obtainable by completing a special route (Ridge Racer 6) or, in Ridge Racer 7, by beating it in a duel.

Based on it's looks, it resembles a Maybach 62, with its wide and long body, but given the fact it is powered by a similar engine to a Bugatti Veyron, which is an 8.0 litre, quad-turbocharged W16, it may suggest that it is technologically inspired by, and foreshadows the Bugatti 16C Galibier concept (although the Bugatti concept had twin-superchargers instead of the quad-turbo set-up).

The fact that it has a boost gauge in its HUD is textbook that it has a turbocharged engine.

The Gnade G00 surprisingly handles like a Mild-spec machine, despite its heavy weight and wide body, as characterized by its all-wheel drive drivetrain, and the fact that the Mild drift type is synonymous with Gnade-branded cars. However, it has average ultimate-charging characteristics, so the G00 could prove an underrated choice for many drivers who wish to use it.

Trivia

  • The description of Ridge Racer 6 mentions that the original G00 is a one-off prototype sedan with a highly luxurious interior, but the model of the G00 in the games show a race-spec cockpit, suggesting that the G00 featured in both Ridge Racer 6 and 7 are actually purpose-built racing versions, and given that it has four liveries to choose from, this could imply that four race-spec G00's were built for the sole purpose of competing in the Ridge Universe series (Ridge Racer 6) and in the Ridge State Grand Prix.
  • The G00 is also similar to the racing version of the Aston Martin Rapide, as it is also a race car variant of a luxury saloon.
