Well, maybe some of you don't know about this great car. I'd say look it up if you don't know and check it out! It has great customization options too. Anyway, for those of you who know, post your pics of this great car below!

I'll start:

I couldn't find any thread like this so I started my own.

If its in the wrong section, sorry.

Also, if you're a normal member (not a moderator or ledby) and you don't think this deserves a thread, you have the option to leave instead of flaming.

I searched and I couldn't find anything. Also please don't link one those "Showroom" threads or the [GTAO] Custom Rides thread. Already know about those.

Good for cruising. Also I tried it for racing and if some tards who don't know how to race didn't keep pitting me, I actually might have gotten 2nd place with it.

Fully upgraded, its pretty good, but still at the back of the pack in racing.

The low-reving V6 that powers it is eerily similar in performance to the 6G75 3.8L engine that's in the RL 4 gen Mitsubishi Eclipse.

Do we seriously need a appreciation thread for every vehicle in the game? :/

Yes. Some people don't even know about the existence of this car. I've seen a YT vid with a guy claiming that its a secret car...

Yes, cause people still think the Asea is a glitched car.

Some people don't take their time to cruise around in a slow ass car so they miss details.

Punch it till it cracks open, drive a bit and exit your car.

 

 

Why do we need a "appreciation" thread for every single vehicle?

Those topics are all dumped in a few hours anyway.

Because of sh*t like this:

I've seen a vid claiming that the Penumbra was a secret car because it was unbuyable.

Loooooool, looks like some 12 year old never played GTA IV, or any other GTA for that matter.

It didnt last long in my garage as a little too slow for the class but it wasnt a bad car for FR duties. Looks pretty cool once modded up nicely. I was expecting it to be a FWD but was nice to find out it was RWD. Still too short a wheel base makes it a bit snappy.

The fact that it's so slow, and it's in the sports class really makes me hate it.  I had one with a custom ROME plate from FnF, but damn it's slow!

 

Sucks because like gear999 said, looks great when customized.  But a SPORTS vehicle shouldn't be a cruising vehicle.  R* should have made it faster.

Same with the Futo. Should not be in Sports class.

I haven't tried the Futo.  I heard if you fully mod it, it's basically because unable to drive because it slides and over-steers like crazy.
