I have a topless Stinger. It's a classic which has been in GTA since number one. The GTA wiki says it is inspired by the 1967 Stingray Corvette, which is the reason I chose it to go with my modern Coquette. It's not very fast and handles like sh*t, but it's nice to have a classic to cruise in.

 

I replaced the Adder with this car.

 

 

GTA wiki is wrong. the Stinger is based on the 61 Ferrari 250 GT california as seen in ferris bueller's day off like i posted on page 1. the front end might have a hint of early C3 vette in it but the headlights, taillights and side profile are clearly that of the ferrari californa. 

 

Tell that to the wiki.

 

Nevermind. I checked, and the original stinger was inspired by the corvette. The GTA 5 version is a hybrid of the Alfa Romeo 33 Stradale and the Ferrari Dinos, probably the 206 GT, from the front and the BMW 507 or the AC Cobra from the rear.

The Z-Type is the best classic car.

 

I've seen posts and videos of people testing the Z-Type and Monroe on tracks, and the Z-Type usually has faster times. I've personally had more success in sports classic races with the Z-Type than the Monroe. The Monroe slides too much and is harder to keep under control. I was a magnet for rammers whenever I drove the Monroe. On the other hand, the Z-Type felt more grippy and sturdy. It was harder for people to ram me off the road when I was in a Z-Type, and when they did, it was easier for me to recover. Plus, the Z-Type has better handling and cornering than the Monroe.

 

Furthermore, the Z-Type can compete with cars in other classes. At a car meet, I drag raced someone in a fully upgraded Coquette with my Z-Type and won.

 

Go with the Z-Type.

actually gta wiki doesn't mention the Corvette at all. it does mention the ferrari dino, but i think they are a little bit off on their ferrari basis. the side profile looks much more like the ferrari daytona than the dino. It was based on the 63 Corvette Stringray in GTA 1 and the 68 Corvette Stingray in GTA II but it's been ferrari or porsche based since the 3D era appearing as a Miami Vice style 73 Daytona spyder in GTA Vice City/vice city stories, and a boxter in GTA 3 and liberty city stores.. 

 

 

 

Returning to the series in Grand Theft Auto V as the  Grotti Stinger, the car is now a hybrid of the Alfa Romeo 33 Stradale and the Ferrari Dinos

I hope you don't mind, but I literally copied your car the instant I saw it.  I love the look of that Monroe.

They mention the Corvette for the original stinger from GTA1.

yeah i went and looked again. i was referring to the 3d/hd era. the GTA 1 stinger was a 63 vette and the GTA 2 one was a 68. After that it was based on porsche, then ferrari.

It actually says GTA1 was 68 and GTA2 was 63. I just like having a classic, and I think it looks better than the Z-Type.

I had a Monroe on my old account and preferred it to my current Stinger GT. Both are great cars though.

Another vote for the Monroe it's beautiful and sounds great not to mention it's the fastest sports classic and yes it's faster than the z. Z is over rated and over used imo.

I see almost as many Z types as adders honestly. And as for the other ones I rarely ever see the stinger or Monroe I actually beat some adders and entity with Monroe driving back from Sandy shores to do roof top rumble. Was quite satisfying :-)

Last time I saw a Z-type I was under level 50.  I'm 135 now.  It was a red ugly one in Sandy Shores.

Sticker Car= rare, cool, flamboyant.

 

Stinger Gt:cool, beautiful, fast, flamboyant, expensive

 

Monroe= Not flamboyant, uglier, doesn't perform better, and cheap

 

You would prefer it and diss the stinger gt because you are a huge hipster. You keep all your ugly mananas, schafters, and line your garage up with stupid colors all in the attempt to be a unique individual. Just stop, it's disgusting and reminds me of the dj for radio mirror park.

 that and your cars are for broke ass niggas

Stinger GT for the win

 

 

Keeps saying he likes flamboyant cars, and keeps calling people and cars fags.

 

Makes sense.

 

Holy hypocrite :whuh:

 

Flamboyant means it attracts attention. It has nothing to do with being gay retard.

 

Tbh the stinger gt is the best sports classic. Looks the best, expensive, beautiful, fast, handles best(durhur no your 20kph manana does not handle better) etc.

 

Not geting it is an insult to yourself.

 

Just wish I had a picture of mine, got my own custom hex edited dark purple on it and looks even more flamboyant than before

Flamboyant is heavily used to describe a homosexual male, like yourself.  I have gay friends who use flamboyant all the time.

 

Might as well use gay instead of happy.  You seem pretty gay to me, which isn't a bad thing, it's just bad that you're so deep in the closet you call everyone fag this, fag that.  But your avatar describes your post quality perfectly, and since the text is cut off, it also shows you're dumb enough that you can't even crop and resize a simple image.

 

And you also dick ride.

 

So yeah, you're not helping your case out here.

huge hate post against me

Here I'll give you the benefit of doubt and just say you are just mad at the moment, maybe you lost your favorite pair of socks. Honestly I could go on about how you're basically just trying to flame me at this point with completely irrelevant and stupid sh*t, but I won't.

 

Fact is, the stinger gt is the best sports classic, and if you can't argue otherwise without calling me gay then that's cool too.

 

Have a lolipop to help calm you down k :)

I'm not mad at all, haha.

 

I'm pointing out the facts of you either being too young to play GTAV in the first place or a closeted homosexual.  Irrelevant?  Lol the facts are in all your posts, your avatar, your user title, damn near everything :lol:

 

And you believe the Stinger GT is the best with the Monroe is factually a better car.

 

Accept the facts and go back to "itpostin".  Poor parenting seems to be what spawned you.

more flame by you

Stinger Gt: 175mph 0-60 in 5.7

Monroe:165mph 0-60 in 7

 

Stinger is faster, not to mention better handling.

 

OP if you can afford it go with the stinger, I've owned both, modded both of them. Gotta say the Stinger is better and looks better too.

 

inb4 more hatred and flame

I have no idea what I'm talking about, I think the Adder has better handling than the Entity too.

 

 

Damn, you stupid! :turn:

ugliest stinger gt ive ever laid eyes on. wtf is up with your choice of rims? 

Off topic but assuming that username is the same I saw on Xbox, I think I remember offering you a helicopter ride. You rewarded my kindness with a bullet. I rewarded yours with a rocket.

You all keep fighting about flamboyance and all it does is make me wanna see an extremely colorful slim boy walk down a street yelling "Fabulous!".

On topic: Batman owns a Z-Type. That is all.

The stats in the game are a joke.

 

There have been Monroe vs Stinger GT convos on here all the time.  You can like how the Stinger GT looks, but it's a proven FACT the Monroe performs better.

 

Some people are just too ignorant to understand that.

I have owned the

Monroe and the Stinger ........I liked the Monroe just because i liked its looks vs the Stinger ........or maybe i could say it better by saying i thought i was less ugly

 

I ended up selling both of them, and went with the Z Type ......

It Mods up Great and is a beast in the races .......if you wanna see just fast it is and how well it does, race it with catch up turned off and you will normally leave the competition behind

Z-type is very underrated due to it's mammoth size.  It's pretty funny actually because it has SO much better handling than something like a Rapid GT or a Hotknife, yet you'd think it's just a show car.

 

I really want mine back.  I wish I would have bought one before Rockstar took all my money away.  It's one classy beast, but I do think the Monroe is all-around better.  I heard a Monroe can even keep up with a Vacca.  I cannot confirm this myself.
