Just replaced my Sentinel with this as one of my free roam cars.  It's not as fast, but it's such a smooth ride.  Great for cruising.

Finally decided to get one (to replace the Dominator that'd been gathering dust in my garage) - and yes, while it's not the fastest ride out there, it handles great, and fully upgraded, it's a respectable cruiser/mission car. Got a really nice feel to it, and all it took was the right combination of visual mods for me to at last realise the hidden potential of this car:

Really like the look of both of those, gents.  It's one of those cars in the game that looks great with any paint-job.

I really like they way they set up the Primary/Secondary color scheme. Makes for some great looking rides if used right. Unfortunately I sold mine, just not enough space!

Yeah, I agree.  Lots of options.  

 

I've not used it much in free roam lately.  Whenever I get antsy for a new car to acquire and mod (I'm addicted), this one always faces the chop.  Call up the mechanic to deliver it with the intention to sell, but when it turns up I remember how much I like it and will then spend the rest of my session cruising around in it :)

It's a very underrated vehicle. It deserves it's performance to be up'd to be able to fairly compete. 

 

I looked at the ''secret'' vehicle video and it's as horrid as I expected. The typical ''I'll be one of the cool youtubers and chrome it, yeah!''

Fits nicely with the heap of trash videos such as

 

''ultra secret rare paintjob!''

 ''ultra-mega-ultimate-super-insane-holy-sh*t-I'm-having-a-stroke-out-of-the-epicness-while-typing-the-video-title-rare-GTAO-vehicle''

I love this car![/quote]
How did you open the hood? :p

Punch it till it cracks open, drive a bit and exit your car.
 
 Or shoot the top corners of the hood with a sniper. Should take around 2 hits in each corner. If you're still struggling watch a video on YouTube where you can also find out how to lower your cars.

I own a 97' Corolla. Invincible reliability...same with the 80s moxel which the Futo is modeled after but it's definitely no sports car. Some rides, like the Penumbra are just meant to be enjoyed simply as a cruiser.

I recently started to like that car because it has a decent amount of customization and looks like something out of a Fast And Furious movie or Need For Speed game.I got it along with a few other tuners in my secondary character´s garage(the red and black car):

I think these cars will look cool with underglow in next gen,Maybe I´ll try to customize them after F&F cars later,something like this:
