the front of the Cockette or whatever kinda reminds me of a type 2 NSX as well. the back is unmistakenly ricer corvette kinda deal.

Edit: Stratham is kinda like that station wagon with the 32 skyline GTS front end and shaped like a impreza wagon or some sorta taurus from behind. plus the feltzer looks more like an SLK dude.

Stratham? Fail. It's Stratum, dude...

I wasn't, I realised what it is when he explained. And if we're making a vehicle guide, mistakes like that cannot occur.

Oracle - Lexus LS420 / BMW 7 series
Infernus - Lamborghini Murcielago / Gallardo mix
Turismo - Ferrari 360 / 420 mix

the oracle looks nothing like the lexus, I cant see any gallardo in the infernus its a murcielago lp640 with a pagini zonda back, there's no such thing as a ferrari 420 and if u meant 430 it just looks like a f360 not a f430

Hell No.

The Front of the Super GT looks like below.

Aston Martin DB9

The Front instantly gives it away.

HOWEVER, the back looks like what you said - Ferrari 612 Scaglietti.

Rockstar have made it look like an Aston Martin because theres already a "Ferrari Spoof" what I think is the Turismo.

I think the Contender is a 2004+ ford f-150 it even looks like the Ford SVT Lightning concept (my favorite and badest truck never made)

Just a small detail but the Faggio is actually called the Vespa. Piaggio is the company.

Nice list there, cookie.gif icon14.gif

the Honda Ballade was the first CRX

our Blista is teh 86 Ballade

A Ballade Sports is what a CRX is called in Japan, CR-X is a more widely known name for it so lets say its a Honda CR-X/Ballade Sport.

I might be thinking of the wrong car unless this is the one with the clear lens covers on the rear lights in wich case: Premier = Toyota Altezza/lexus IS200.

The Ingot is missing from the list completly, and even though the list is updated, it isn't updated right, there's still a lot of cars either mislabeled or with the name wrong.

Why haven't you updated the motorbikes yet?

How many threads alone on this subject? I keep having to refer back to some graphical reference and can't find the same thread!!! I'd love to help. I'm a bit a car nut myself, but much more domestics, all the cars I've owned are USA models! I much prefer the design aesthetic.

I wish there were pics of the cars up here so I could help more, but I guess I'll just have to keep my eyes open while playing.

As for that Skyline wagon, they have the Stagea wagon in Asia and its fairly common for people to swap the R34 Skyline front end on to it. I believe its very likely the car is modeled after that.

Not that I recall... I think that's the Ford LTD, or it had another name I can't recall. A lot of dropped 70s model domestics are truly rare these days!
Like the Monza and Vega!! AMC cars in general

The Schafter is definitely a Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG as evidenced by its badges, "6.5 V12" (Though the S65 has a 6.0 L V12). The wheels are also fairly similar. The Feltzer is most definitely an SLK.

The Pinnacle, to me, looks like a Nissan Altima. The Solair, a Mercury Sable Wagon. The Landstalker looks like an uberly stretched version of the Land Rover LR2; especially from the rear end.

Agreed, if it's to be the "definitive GTA vehicle guide" and I for one am ALL for that, but we need to capture some pics... I'll help to that end as I know how, but I've still been just taping and playing the game only so far!! colgate.gif

The Coqette IIRC, is a C5 Corvette emulation, even from the rear, it's no "ricer"!!

Sorry if this double posts, but I'm all for correcting any errors, and that's certainly one. Some of the cars look as close to a licensed model as one can legally get, and I think it's fantastic myself icon14.gif monocle.gif
