Hmmmm.. might have to try it out. The rapid GT fully upgraded with no Armor is fast , and it handles very well. Might get the convertible GT if the Exemplar is crap

Quite honestly, I purchased the Exemplar first wanting to try out the brand (and add a 4 door next to my Sultan RS). I loved it. It's heavy sure, but it's solid and can take some bumps without being knocked off course. It handles surprisingly well, even cornering.

 

With that in mind, I wanted the Rapid GT. Fortunately I put it through my gauntlet of tests prior to purchase in Story Mode. I walked away disappointed. It's 4 door counterpart may not be as fast, but it certainly handles far better IMO. The GT requires a full block to make a turn, figuratively of course. Everything else I loved about it.

 

Will be adding my Exemplar shortly.

Brilliant cars, so stable when going fast, this pic doesn't really show the blue/red pearl mine has.

IMO Aston's need a deep rich dark color, like this and the one above me. Or white.

 

All in all, Exemplar > Rapid GT. I wouldn't use the GT for anything other than straight aways. You may find yourself selling the GT for the Exemplar. It has utility, isn't hard to get sideways (not necessarily a bad thing), has weight, excellent brakes and acceleration is respectable so is the top speed. It's a lot like the Felon in how it behaves, just feels a bit heavier.

Just bought my Exemplar, sold my Adder for it and I'm very happy, I have mine in Metallic Diamond Blue, which almost white, with a very faint bluish tint. As for wheels I spent an hour going through them, but like the Schafter the stock wheels suit it the best. After I'm done car bombing people with my Hotknife, I think I'll trade it in for a Rapid GT, and have both Dewbawchee cars in my garage. I have the order set where it will work out perfectly.

Exemplar has got very forgiving handling, its long wheelbase will give you extra time to react to oncoming dives.

Hell, you can comfortably brake and turn into corner knowing it will follow through without flicking back end like shorter wheel base cars do.

I tried to really throw it around, and for my taste ... its a bit too linear and easy.

Its perfect for doing missions etc, but I preffer Tailgater. Even though Exemplar shaits on Tailgater performance and handling wise.

Elegy and Adder have got more character to crack, having said that ... what do I know?

I love my Exemplar.  It allows me to literally run circles around the Adders and the Entities in the chaos known as free mode.

Which is why I'm confused at the Rapid GT's really subpar cornering abilities.

I love how the Exemplar drives, but I really can't get over the fact that it looks kind of goofy.

I love my Exemplar.  Not the fastest but still hauls, first thing I noticed is the handling.  I love how well this car takes turns so well.

I must admit I did like the one I had for the handling. I ended up swapping it out for a Felon though. Not as quick but I think the Felon looks better. I like that blue you have there G37. Needs some aftermarket rims to stand out a bit more though IMO. You dont see to many people running around with these in FR which I like.

The car still has great symmetrical lines, reason why I got it. Problem is most rims look like sh*t on it depending on personal taste. I find the stock ones suit it best. Same with the Schafter.


Mr Piff has good taste, those Synthetic Z Rims would be my only option, but I have them on all 3 of my supers, and my Carbonizarre.

I love the handling, hate it that there are no visual mods available for it.

Just tested a Rapid GT stolen from an NPC not long ago. Disappointing in terms of cornering but is fast. The Exemplar is superior to it's two door cousin & I'd choose the Exemplar over the Rapid GT.
