|And there are many examples of cars that were damn near replicas of the real deal. Although this would be the newest one, and therefore the most likely to get them into trouble, but I doubt Audi really cares that much.|
Not like this there isn't. If you can find a car from IV, or any other GTA game for that sake, that is as identical to their real life counterparts as this, I'll put up a shrine for you in the main post.
|Edit: Also, the artist's interpretation could be making it look closer to the real thing than it actually is. For example, the police car in the artworks looks more like a Crown Vic than the one in the game.|
It's possible, but beside the point. There might be a car in the game based on an A5, but that's not what this is about, really - it's what the car in the artwork is based on.
The artist was looking at a picture of a real life, red Audi A5 when he drew that.
|When were they sued for this?|
That's a car based on a Honda NSX, yes. But it is not identical, as you can easily see. Plenty of differences, as there should be.
Well, somebody else mentioned the Willard. And I couldn't believe how close the Emperor and Ruiner were to the real thing.
Now where's my shrine?!
Really though, I think the RS6 lookalike is pretty close and could be made to look closer in an artwork. And without seeing either the front or rear fascia's, there's room for doubt.
I just don't think R* would tease us like that with a car that's not in the game.
Good job on winning a shrine!
No shrines for him, as he still hasn't shown me a case where a part of the vehicle is completely identical to its real world counterpart. Again, I'm not talking similar, or being close - identical, like the A5 artwork. Still remains to be seen.
If you only saw the side of the Emperor, you would call that identical. Admit it.
Edgiest man on earth: Notice how the Schafter is very rounded in shape, and the headlights are also rounded? The Accord coupe is more angular like the car in question and has rectangular headlights. The design language is very much Japanese.
Az, you might want to change the picture, because that's a European Accord, which is based on the Acura TSX. This is what it should be:
