I love all of the vehicles in GTA V, but what I want to know is, what are their real life counterparts.  I know a few of them, but there are a lot I just don't recognize.  I figured I would start a thread where people could list the vehicles and their real life counterparts for anybody else who might be interested.  Here are the ones I know:

 

Vapid Bullet = Ford GT500

Obey = Audi (they have the Q5, the R8, and then Michael's car is a mishmash of all of the A-series sedans)

Annis Elegy RH-8 = Nissan GT-R

Ocelot = Jaguar, although I don't remember the model name in-game, nor do I know which real-life model it's based off of

 

Allright, I'm at work and that's all I can remember off the top of my head.  When I get home and I can look at my strategy guide I'll list all of the vehicles and we'll see if we can figure out their real life counterparts.

I'm sure the Bullet is based on the Ford GT, not the GT500.

The GT500 is a Shelby Cobra.

There is a vehicle Database thread. Sadly, it is Not maintenanced well. Same goes for the Business Database, there should Be a consistent "real Life" category.

The only Honda I know of other than motorcycles is the Blista Compact, but I haven't found one yet in game.  There's talk in another thread that the Futo is a Toyota Corolla GT.  The Coquette is obviously a Corvette.  The Picador is a Chevy El Camino, although to me it looks more like the Ford Ranchero.  I guess it's just hard to tell those two apart.  Oh, duh, I forgot another obvious one.  Bravado is obviously Dodge.  The Buffalo is the Charger.  Bravado also makes a pickup truck that is the Dodge Ram, but I don't remember what it's called in-game.  I'm pretty sure Lamar's van was a Vapid model as well, which would make it a Ford E-150.

That is correct.  I got my Ford GT's confused.

 

Ok, so let's sort this by manufacturer:

 

Vapid = Ford

Obey - Audi

Cheval = Chevrolet

Bravado = Dodge

Karin = Toyota

Annis = Nissan

Ocelot = Jaguar

 

I do plan to maintain and update this thread until we have all of the cars identified.  If anybody knows any more, be sure to post them.

Yeah, that wiki is terrible.  I couldn't care less what a car was in GTA II or Chinatown Wars.  I want to know what cars are in GTA V.  If you don't want to participate in the thread, then don't.-

I think Grand Theft Wiki is better since I used to find real life counterparts (I was thescarydude) but now on GTA Wikia the descriptions have been butchered and say a simple car based off a few models is based off 10 now.

It looks like the other thread on these forums isn't very well-maintained and doesn't have the info on over half of the vehicles.

It can be called the Chevy volt or the Ampera. Isn't vauxhall just the European equivalent to chevy anyways?

Yes, but the Surge is based more on the Vauxhall counterpart than it's American brother. And I believe Rockstar wants Cheval to be called anything but Chevrolet, it wouldn't make sense to have to exact same car brand parodies in one game (Declasse and Cheval).

 

Unless Declasse is GMC, then Cheval would make sense.

 

EDIT:

I just got completely mindf*cked by my own post, seriously R*, what were you thinking adding Cheval as a completely new brand?

I know that the Pegassi cars are modeled after Lamborghinis, but what about the Pegassi Faggio? The little scooter? I don't think that Lamborghini manufactures any scooters.

Looks like the inspiration for the Canis Mesa Off-Road was this modified Jeep Wrangler:
