This is the shelby ultimate aero ev. One of the worlds fastest electric cars.

Do you think this is the Khamelion?

That looks like something that the Rylothians in The Last Starfighter should be using to recruit people. It looks awesome. I would love it.

Looks good, so, will we be able to drive it in SP?

God, I hope so! That's one electric car that doesn't look like a pussy (not talking about the good kind). I'm hoping it doesn't sound like a queef though.

If it were actually that car specifically, I would assume we'd have to buy it (at a hefty price I'm sure), if not, we'd probably have to steal it somehow.

I wonder, if when run over by this vehicle in MP, a special kill notification will be set aside for this?

I'm going to guess at the Porsche 918 Spyder. Why? Because it's spider misspelled with a Y, and Khameleon is chameleon misspelled with a K. Iknow, sh*t reason but nice car.

We saw a car exactly like this is the 2nd trailer. I can't really get a screenshot now as im on an iPhone, but rest assured that car is in the game. It's at the part of the trailer just before the police chase and the Aston Martin db5 look-a-like

I thought the Cheetah was based of a Koenigsegg.

Obviously based off the fisker karma,which is an electric car. The name is probably based off the song karma chemelon by culture club.

I thought of the Fisker Karma when I first saw mention of the Khamelion.

But what sells this notion is what you've said there. Because that is exactly the kind of wordplay Rockstar use to name almost everything in GTA.

Fisker Karma -> Karma Chameleon (Culture Club song) -> Khamelion


That is definitely it exactly.

Yeah, that seems to make the most sense.

Unknown car seen in multiple screens. It's most likely based on the Fisker Karma, an electric sports car. I guess this is the Khamelion.

now my question is.... you get it in multiplayer. can standard edition people get it in after you drove it? or will there be collectors-edition only lobbies? or will it be like some of the modded cars in IV where only the ''host'' can enter the car?

This.

It's exactly the car I thought of, and I personally would prefer it to the Ultimate Areo EV. Never liked the Ultimate Aero, allways thought it looked like a Cheap Kit car trying to play with the big boy hyper cars.

I do like the 918 Spyder idea, it is a Hybird after all Rockstar could just make it full electric, now that's a Sexy car, I want one in V in some capacity. But I still think the Khamelion is Fisker based.

There we go, we have our Khamelion, now this just needs to be put on the vehicle database thread.

Possible that its the car but that car was shown twice before the SE and CE was announced so I doubt that's it. Also the Fisker Karma has 4 doors. Rockstar rarely changes models from 2door to 4door and vice versa. So if that's the Khamelion is most likely not based on the Karma.

I don't know, it seems pretty spot on, on the looks, the name reference and all, about the door thing, it may happen rarely, but still happens, though the only example I remember is the Polaris V8 from VCS, I'm sure there's plenty more, also, R* most likely had this car planned way before the SE and CE were announced, the car doesn't exist just to be an exclusive, it was most likely just picked afterwards to be an exclusive.
