All right everyone, sit back and enjoy another afternoon with the Showroom; the Declasse Sabre Turbo

Background/Design

GTA V decided to give us the Sabre Turbo, which is the better one out of the three… even though the GT was pretty much the same thing. Nonetheless still a good addition to the GTA V vehicle list, because I’m pretty sure nobody wanted the Sabre Turbo design gone since SA :p .  The last time we saw the Sabre Turbo was pretty much in the Vice City universe, and was considered as a rare unique vehicle in VC. Not to mention it also shares the same design as the famous Green Sabre from SA. The design is inspired by the first or second generation cutlass supreme, and is placed in the Muscle category in GTA V.

The Sabre Turbo also has a lot of customization options, and not to mention having a racing strip giving a secondary colour.

 

·         Seats 2 Passengers

 

Let’s take a look at how it looked like back then (VC & VCS)

Speed – 8.0

The Sabre Turbo gives exceptional speed, with a pretty decent acceleration. What I’ve noticed is that the time between gear shifts are actually longer than usual. Which I believe would be a weakness when going through short road cornered tracks. But when on freeways, it’s amazing to see such an old school car be in par with Gauntlets and Dominators.

 

Handling – 7.0

The Sabre Turbo doesn’t have the best handling but it definitely has one of the most fun type of performances in the game. And even though it has really nice suspensions, they’re just so soft that it makes chases through the city a big challenge.

 

Overall Rating – 8.5

I absolutely love the Sabre turbo, ever since the days when it was handled by good ol Hilary King. And then after that it made another appearance in the storyline with Grove Street’s Green Sabre. You can really tell that Rockstar had a soft spot for this specific car, and it did the same to me. From the engine noise, to the thick tires that screech every time you slam that throttle. .. the Sabre Turbo is definitely something that you can depend on. The only real down part is the really messy handling that it has, but with enough practice it’ll definitely improve your experience.

 

So what do you guys think of the Declasse Sabre Turbo?

And if you happen to own one, make sure to post pictures!

She's been one of my go-to cars since I started playing, and even holds the honored place of the big #1 in my garage.

Thanks! feelin the love for real.
 

It's a bit tricky to pin point because they spawn around the city pretty much everywhere, but as far as I know you'd have to be driving around in a muscle car for them to spawn. Other than that I really don't know much, I kinda just got lucky to find one driving around. I hope other people can you help though, since I'm kind of curious too as to where to find one for sure.

Yeah it needs to be a lighter and brighter green than that, but I think you'd need to change your crew colour for that specific green. Either way that sabre turbo looks great!

I had one modelled after the Chevelle from Jack Reacher.  I ended up replacing it with an Infernus.

What do you guys prefer for the hood, the three intake or the bug catcher? I'm at a bit of a loss as to which one to choose.

^ Well I don't like the pop out hood engine mods for the Sabre Turbo... BUT if I had to choose I'd go for the three intake, mainly because the shape compliments well with the car design.

I've always really liked the way the Sabre (GT/Turbo) looked, especially the models with the hood like what I have. Great pics all around, the Sabre is, in my opinion, one of the best looking cars in the game.

i go with carbon then make the Sabre a solid color or get the uh..other first 2 you unlock. IMO i hate bugcatchers.

Great pictures people! From what I see in my series of threads a lot of people really love showing off their muscle cars :p

 

 

another turbo thread? thats like 5 this week.

 

 

Ooops I didn't know there were a lot more other Sabre Turbo threads out there :/ 

Either way this car HAS to have a Showroom topic regardless :p

I also prefer the triple over the bugcather, as it has a lower profile but still looks mean.

 

Each of my SP players also have ST's

^Yeah the bugcatcher pops out too much, and it only looks great on select muscle cars. Either way these Sabre Turbos are lookin hella nice!

oh, you liked it, well thanks, but I ended up modifying it a bit after, and it's now quite... well, a picture is worth a thousand words but let's just say you won't find one like it in every game...

Looks like there's a competition between the Sabre Turbo and the Phoenix :p

I personally like the engine sound on the Sabre Turbo more though.

Nice, I think dem muscle tires really do look best on the Sabre Turbo.

I wish there was a variant that has the same stripe design as Starsky and Hutch D:
