The first time I came across a Lokus was in the mission "Entourage" (I had to look it up, it's the first mission you do for Jon Gravelli in the Gambetti storyline). After playing the game for so long, I was surprised to discover a car I'd never seen before at that point. Otherwise, it is pretty rare, although I suppose I mostly see it around south Algonquin.

Speaking of which, I find it strange that IV's programmers would choose to model two cars (the aforementioned Lokus and the Feroci) after the Lexus GS--granted two different generations, but same car nonetheless. I'd have preferred for them to have ditched one of them for another car. A civilian-issue Buffalo, perhaps? tounge.gif

The Phantom is obviously a 2005 Peterbilt Sleeper. It's the only truck on the road that looks anything like it.

The Ruiner.

The Ruiner is a cross between a Z31 Nissan 300zx at the front headlights:

And a 3rd generation Chevrolet Camaro from the rear:

Also, the wheels on the car are the wheels off of a Starion (Conquest to you Americans -.-), oddly:

Don't forget about the one we all think of first when we see it.

That looks nothing like it, I hate to say.

I beleive the Turismo looks more like the Ferrari F430 than the 360. Sorry if this was mentioned. I didn't feel like rumaging through 14 pages.

Thats the F430. This is the 360.

^The 360.
The Sentinental is more like a BMW M3, shown here:

Don't know which year that is, though.
The lights are SLIGHTLY different so I got the side view so people wouldn't debate like you weirdo's have with the "Sultan RS". The Sultan looks more like a Lexus Is300 (or something like that tounge2.gif )

Check the prius out on Google and you'll see that Dilettante is far away frow the C4 (beautiful car).
Dilettante is definitely a PRIUS

Well, I don't know if CitroŽn has any room in the american car market - probably not. Nevertheless, the DILETTANTE is quite similar to a CITROňN C4, don't you think?

In my opinion, the Ruiner looks like a Mazda RX-7 Infinity. Who agrees? smile.gif
