Okay now that we've got the best of the best, as far as cars go, what is your automobile of choice when it comes to the total package? We're talking speed AND handling - the kind of car that you want to be in when you've got 4-5 stars and the cops are closing in. Sometimes the fastest cars are the hardest to control, or perhaps they are too vulnerable to a few rounds from a passing Police Maverick....

Call me crazy, but I love myself a good Ruiner. But that might just be because I'm a sucker for Smokey and the Bandit.

For me, if it was SP, i would most likely choose the Buffalo, good handling, and resonable speed, and at least you know that if your getting chased by the FIB and there FIB Buffalo's, the your's is faster and better.

If it was MP, i would probably have to choose the Stinger, my reason: Speed, Monuverable, quick around corners, and good for avoiding crashes and head on colisions. Oh and i would say the APC, but this topic seems to only be focusing on speed & handling.

F620. You can call it crappy handling, but I call it drifting ability.

I was actually surprised that the APC is so vulnerable to attack ... much more so than the Rhinos from the previous GTAs.

Thats because an APC is not the same thing as a tank (Rhino).

thing I miss the most from the old GTAs was the Rhino. I had flashbacks from that using the APC for the first time...and then it blew up

i would like to be in a Comet...yes i've driven all the cars ,but the Comet has speed and the drifting and handling are great,i think that's why most of the people in multiplayer choose it when it comes to the making of a race wink.gif

I prefer to use one of three :

1\ Cavalcade : because its almost fast as any sedan despite it wight plus its not bad in corners & it can survive the SWAT & FIB bullets for longer time than any other car in the game & its good to ram police roadblocks (Usually SWAT trucks in 4 or 5 stars)

2\ Presidente : because its fast & handle very well in corners

3\ PMP600 : because accelerate to top speed real quick & it have thicker windows that doesn't shatter like other cars when you shot it in the first time.

I have different car choices for different catagories.
Depending on where I am, what situation I'm in, and what I'm planning to do.
Lets begin.

Bullet GT. Surprised nobody has mentioned it.
This car has the speed of an Infernus
Acceleration of a Comet
And handling of a SuperGT
I can go fast through the straights
Corner with ease
and avoid getting shot pretty easily.
That's my main getaway car, fast getaways, good looks, and you can find one easily...

Lets see, next on my list is the Buffalo.
It's good for running, but also counter-attacks.
If I'm out to get the cops, it's most likely me in a Buffalo.
That thing is fast, corners well, and can withstand a couple of good shots to the engine before it's useless...
Also, its four seats enable me to pack it with my friends so we can do more damage.

Last of all, I've had this car on my list for a long time.
Which could it possibly be?
The Cognoscenti!
Why?
Well, not so good speed and poor handling.
But.
It's the perfect battering ram!
No, really!
Put four people in it, and ram through any obstacle as they take their time to shoot out the competition...
People have been surprised at what I've accomplished in one of those things.
They can easily be found on the third island spawn, and they really aren't too slow.
Sure, turning is a pain, but going fast enough you can flip your enemies or bend their axel so badly that they lose mobility in a wheel...

That's about it for me, I have others that I use but this is enough for now...

Seriously, i'd pick the Sultan. Not Sultan RS. Just Sultan. I once sped thru from Alderny to Broker with little to no damage. Just some minor Scratches here and there.

Fact is, the fastest cars in the game are (based on accelaration, top speed, handling and braking.)

1. Infernus and Comet (can't tell)
3. Banshee
4. Bullet GT and Coquette (can't tell either)
6. Turismo and Sultan RS (can't tell either)
8. F620 and Super GT (identical)
10. Super (Drop) Diamond and civialian Buffalo(can't tell either)
(based on carhandling.dat)

I think the Bullet GT looks best so that is my favorite. The Infernus and Comet are a tad better than the Banshee but I prefer the Banshee's looks so that kind of evens it out. I love the Turismo's handling. Well, this would be my list:

1. Bullet GT
2. Banshee, Infernus
4. Super Drop Diamond
5. Comet
6. Turismo
7. F620
8. Super GT
9. Civilian Buffalo
10. Coquette
11. Sultan RS

The best vehicle to lose the cops is probably the Hakuchou Custom though.
Find a straight, press RT and you lost 'em.

Belive it or not i would acctually go with the old Schafter, it handles good and the speed is quite decent flat out. In multiplayer my friend was in a police stinger and i was in my Schafter and i lost him because i could weave in and out of trafic better and he is usually a better driver than me. Also, the old Schafter looks quite nice in black and the sports version which has a sorta body kit looks nice. I don't like the new one in BoGT that much though.

Something about the SUV's make them more fun to punish during a chase. And when you've evaded the coppers, get out and inspect the damage. biggrin.gif

I would say out of my personal opinion would be either the::

Bullet::
Good speed, acceleration, and handleing. Sure, it tends to wash-out on turns somtimes, but I drift that bitch.

OR

Sabre GT::
I love this car, good speed and handling, but lacks a bit on acceleration. But the handling is VERY predictable and is the car I use for my getaways most of the time (quote username here).

I use a Comet and blow past Infernus's all the time in multiplayer, the Infernus has faster pickup, but the Comet has a higher top speed.

Comet is smaller and easier to dodge stuff...my choice by far.

Other way around.
The Infernus has a higher top speed, due to its streamlined shape and wide rear wheel drive.
The Comet is almost as fast as the Infernus.
It's close.
It has a higher acceleration due to its four wheel drive.

See I LOVE the Buffalo - badass-looking, powerful, and durable ... but whenever I handbrake around a turn I end up sending lampposts and newspaper boxes flying everywhere. Maybe I just need to get better at drifting?

No, he is right. You should check out these pages.

The comet has slightly better top speed but has a more significant disadvantage on accelaration. The Infernus has better brakes but the Comet has better handling. If you ask me they are about even.

1. Police Patriot would be my first choice because it can well and truly get a Bus on 2 wheels, shoot it with an entire AMG magazine and it doesnt blow, and I love the sound of the enigne as I drive away from flipped over Pig Cruisers

2. Civilian Buffalo cause I like the way it drives and it can take this and that and it is easy to get with Henrique

3. My supercar is the Turismo cause it has superglue tracks on it's tyres and goes almost as fast. It makes up all that time in the corners such as on Tar-Macked at the end of the runway Bullet GT's fly away into the ocean over the ramp and I don't plus I love it's sound

Cavalcade - It goes great offroad and it's really strong so it's good to ram roadblocks even with patriots or Enforcers.
Sentinel - Awesome Handling, Awesome Speed/Acceleration, Sadly it's weak like all sedans.
Buffalo - I love the Handling smile.gif
Sultan - I belive it's the best sedan IG.

Im sory but the official list of speed for Super cars is actually
Coment
Turismo / Coquette
Infernus
well they are the top three do you want proof?? if soo then there is allways
http://www.gta4.net/...=Speed&Speed=on

Comet 347 km/h
Turismo 344 km/h
Coquette 344 km/h
Infernus 342 km/h
Banshee 339 km/h
Super GT 328 km/h
Cognoscenti 321 km/h
Blista Compact 321 km/h
NOOSE Cruiser 313 km/h
Police Cruiser 313 km/h

They are the top ten dont believe me? click on the link above, The shape has nothing to do with it and TBH The comet since tis based on a Porcshe 911 is alot more streamlined than a Murcealargo

And my list would have too be...
Super GT / F620 = its fast but prone too exploding too easily
Buffalo = Its Faster than a FBI Buffalo.
Patriot (NOOSE Preferably) = The NOOSE Patriot has better handling and speed than the normal Patriot
Comet = Fastest car in the whole game by 3 KMH and it is nice and small.

It's light as sh*t though. That's why you don't see Comet's (which ARE the fastest car in the game) win MP races. The truly fastest car is the Bullet GT... I don't know about the handling when comparing to any other fast cars.

I'd say the infurnus or bullet gt.

The Bullet GT. It is extremely fast, but sometimes skids when turning too suddenly. To make up for that it has some of the best braking in the game. You can go fast and still slow down fast enough for the corner, for you heavy footed gamers out there.

N.O.O.S.E. Patriot. It can take lot of damage, it's 4WD and I know how to shoot and drop sticky bombs out of it.
