On the Legendary Motorsports website, the Coil Voltic pictured has no roof.

I heard something about having the roof now being fully optional, but once again I have been deceived lol I guess there aren't any changes you still gotta gamble when you buy and hope for the one you wanted :p

Now that you know there weren't any changes made, would you still consider? Lol just ask yourself if you want a super car with great acceleration... but lacks top speed. Good handling... but has a body of a plastic bag lol.

I fell in love with it in the single player and made sure it was my first super I bought in multi. It kicks all the Adder and Entity asses in races that aren't straightaways.

That's disappointing that it's still a gamble to get the roof preference you want but that probably won't sway my decision.  I forgot how cheap the car is.  Was thinking it was in the neighborhood of 500k but looked yesterday and saw it's actually only 150k.  It will also be on my second character which I started recently, so I have open spots.

 

When you said changes I thought maybe I had missed something about it now being able to equip a turbo or handling changes or something like that.

Nooo not that I know of, although I don't know if having a turbo on it would make it better... consider its acceleration is already off the roof, it's just this game lacks mods for increasing top speed. Because that's what the Voltic needs the most.

My first super car, and the only vehicle I still have (besides the Akuma) from the beginning. Once you get used to how squirrely this thing is at high speeds, nobody can catch you. It can only be beat on the loong straights. This thing corners and accelerates out of the turns like nobody's business... only the motorbikes like the double-t are as agile. In downtown Los Santos, the Voltic is king. 0_0.jpg

Why is this forum utterly retarded in not realizing Teslas are built inside Lotus bodies, and thus look just like them.

The Voltic is just tons of fun to drive. Takes off and climbs to max speed in no time and the engine noise is just so soothing.

 

It is terrible for any practical purpose though! It's no good in races - even if they are 100% corners. It's a terrible getaway car that can't handle any contact with other vehicles. It can't handle off-road or climb steep slopes. The smallest bump on the road flips it over.

 

I still love driving it and it's my go-to vehicle for free-roam.

I love my Voltic. Its not gonna stand up in a toe-to-toe fight with real Supercars on teh BS tracks people mostly race, but do something on the streets where its phenomenal braking and accelleration comes into play, and you'll hold up.

 

Right until someone checks your ultralight track toy into a wall with their bloated hypercar. ;)

 

I do wish it was classed as a sports car and not a supercar, or they'd simply push the stupid Adder and Entitiy into their own class.

 

I bought it primarily as a mission car, where it excels because you can weave through anything and blitz around corners.

 

But, all that aside... it looks good at the club...

Good on the streets:

Hell, even though its a track car, if you should find yourself up a mountain, it'll bring you home:

BTW: I don't know why people really can't grasp the concept that its a Tesla Roadster. The real Nikolai Tesla mostly famous for his "tesla coil."

 

"Bbbbut it looks like a lotus," you whine.

 

Sure does, because Lotus stays afloat by selling off its engineering to other people, such as their ultralight chassis and suspension designs to automotive makers, like, y'know, Tesla.

 

Example here.

Here's mine. It took me ordering it 3 times before I got one with a paintered roof. I was rich then so it was no big deal.
