Design and performance
The Ambitious is the first car provided when the player chooses Terrazi as the manufacturer of choice. The Ambitious features an typical JDM tuner coupe look, comparable to a fourth generation Toyota Supra. This makes the car look similar to the first generation Kamata Fiera, especially the car's taillights, with the impression that Namco wanted to imply that the original F/A Racing car in early games was actually the Ambitious, as the Fiera name have yet to be introduced in Ridge Racer V (as Kamata Fiaro). The Ambitious features a turbocharged 2 liter 4-cylinder engine, compared to the first generation Fiera/Fiaro's 3000cc 6-cylinder engine. For comparison, the 2JZ-G(T)E engine in the fourth generation Supra is a 3000cc inline-6 engine, with optional turbocharger in RZ models.
If the player finishes in the last qualifying place, the player will continue driving the Ambitious for the rest of the Grand Prix, but the car will receive engine upgrades, as well as increased number of gears.
The Centellee is the car's possible spiritual successor.
