Since the first topic got bombarded with awesome pictures, I actually went over the limit on how many images can be posted on a single post. SO, this is now going to be the main Showroom topic for this car AND an extended gallery for everyone else that posted pictures after the limit was made. SO PLEASE ALERT THE PUBLIC ABOUT THIS MOVE, GO ON.

 

Welcome to another car discussion, and this time we'll be focusing on the classic and oh so sexy Imponte Phoenix.

Background

The Phoenix has been around since Vice city, but never appeared in Liberty City ( GTA II & IV).  The car resembles the classic Pontiac Firebird which is what attracts players into owning one. The Phoenix has always been one of the fastest cars in the game but gradually lost handling since it's first game appearance.

 

The following stats are for a stock Phoenix:

 

Speed - 8.0

The Phoenix has incredible speed, placing it as one of the top cars matching with the modern Gauntlet.

 

Acceleration - 7.0

Although the Phoenix has great acceleration, the player doesn't really get much speed at the start due to the long burnout that it tends to do. Players find this annoying because of the fact that it takes longer than usual to recover from a crash.

 

Braking - 2.5

A stock Phoenix has better brakes than most of the muscle cars in the category, but it still poses a threat towards the handling.

 

Handling - 6.5

The Phoenix hs relatively good handling, and because it has a narrow body it makes turning corners quite a breeze... but this comes with a price. The sensitive steering makes it common for players to spin out.

 

Rating - 8.0

My rating reflects on the personal experience I've had with the Phoenix. It's a great car to have, really eye-catching and not to mention a classic muscle. It's a great car to use for racing and of course for missions as well. It's definitely one of my favourites from the muscle category. Not to mention the design represents so much famous cars in history like KITT haha.

 

Locations

Can be found driving around the docks, near Simeon's garage.

​Now I'd like to hear what everyone thinks of the Phoenix and what impact (if it made one) it had to you or your friends. And of course if you have a Phoenix yourself, make sure to post some pictures because we want to see how you pimped yours out!

Great car, this one has sadly moved on though. If I had the space, it would have easily stayed....

Got my Phoenix recently and joined 95TA (thanks btw) for the great emblem, level 9 in club now, so will be getting the bird on there soon...

going for a '70s vibe with mine, you can almost feel the massive 'tache!

Nice. I think we might be one of the only clubs dedicated to a specific gta online car. when i saw crews could have custom logos i knew the phoenix needed a proper screaming chicken on the hood.

We are currently at 79 members which is ironic to me for 2 reasons. 1. 1979 was the highest sales year for the trans am. 2. It was the year i was born.

What's your crew called? I've been trying to upload the bird for a while now but each time I do it the picture is smaller than 512x512 and the transparant background dissapeared.

The Feenix deekal looks really cool on the hood there -- and the VW one, not so much. I predict we might see a few more single car-dedicated crews being inspired by this.

 

PS. I had a Phoenix for a while but ditched it because the exit offcorner oversteer was a bitch.

So can someone tell me if I add a crew emblem to my hood, then switch crews, will the emblem stay the same as before?

Yeah definitely, everyone is posting their custom phoenixes!

I'm not actually too sure about that, you might have to refresh it to get the new one on.

I don't actually want the new one. I want the firebird to stay even when I'm on my regular crew.

Guess Ill try it next time I get on and report back
