Pro Touring is about having a car that handles extremely well both in corners and on a straight course. Pro Touring is about making a car that only has reasonable driving performance, perform really well. If done properly it can outperform the true sport cars.
To qualify as a Pro Touring car it must have improved handling provided by suspension modification. Large brakes are necessary to improve braking, and it also has to have large wheels. The reason for the wheels is simple; you can't fit the big brakes within 15" rims. On top of this you need a powerful engine to perform well on tracks as well as roads. Looks is secondary but of course important too.
