PMSL @ sweat pants boner.

Let me correct you sir...

The Karin Asterope is partly based off the 2003-2009 Legacy, from the front end anyway. The Sultan is VERY clearly based off a mix of the '98-'05 Lexus IS and the '98 - '01 Lancer Evo...

Do your research before calling us retards.

All three. These arguments are so stupid.
No car in GTA is purely based on ONE real life car.

Definitely Asterope = Legacy - the front end's more curved than the Sultan, and there's that distinctive 'crescent' on the bottom edge of the lights.

Thank you Cmdr, as you said, the crescent shape on the headlights immediately made me think of the Legacy.

@Sabre. The back of the Asterope could pass as a Corolla or Camry inspired car, so it's understandable you thought that. :D

I thought is was a Camry (International version) at first too.

More so cause of how common it is on the streets.

Research? What research? This is subjective. There is no definitive answer.

If he sees a liberty then so be it. I personally don't see any evo at all, only Lexus, but I wouldn't say that's a fact.

@Sabre - I always thought it was a Camry that we dont have in Aus. Unless you have some wierd looking subarus over there I don't see any liberty in the Asterope.

I've always thought of the Sultan as a Subaru and the GTA5 version is no different. Ok it's not clear cut as they mix in a few different cars to most of their creations, but I believe in the concept stage back when it was first introduced for San Andreas the idea was to make a GTA Impreza.

The back definitely looks like the Evolution IV but it looks more like an Impreza from the front. The sides also look more like the Mitsubishi so it's based off the Evolution IV imo.

Personally think it's a Subaru, it has the hood scoop and an RS version which imo = wrx/sti and historically the Sultan has been based on a Subaru also Kuruma has always been the Lancer in previous GTA's and definitely the EVO 10 in GTA V so why would they have 2 Lancer's in the game?

Ehhh.... It shares a little in common with the B4 series Legacy 

Spoiler

Huh?

Its clearly based off of the 1st gen. Toyota Altezza. No Lancer EVO or Impeza WRX came with anything above a 3L engine or a I6. Secondly, the 3.3L I6; AWD, and Twin-Turbo on the Sultan is very closely based off of the 2JZ-GE that powered the higher trim models.

Just look at it and match the lines and body creases:

I'll just leave this here:
 

The current WRX/STi and the Evo look somewhat similar IRL. The Kuruma has the spoiler, rear haunches and a bit of the profile of the WRX/STi along with the grille and taillights of the Evo. There are strong arguments for both cars.

The Sultan has a lot going on. It has the front clip of an Alteza/IS300...

In game, it appears to be roughly the size of a GC8 Impreza. Add in a hood scoop option and the fact that it also came as a 2-door coupe in GTAIV and I can see where "Impreza" comes from...

And from the doors back, it's an Evo V...

Choose the right wing and fiddle with the primary and secondary colors and you can turn it into Tommi Makinnen's Evo V.

o.o...
I'm sorry I don't understand in anything that goes under the hood but yea I do agree that it looks more like the lexus especially from the front.

Its a mix between a Subi, Mitsubishi and Lexus. Not really worth arguing about it. All cars are a mix between several manufacturers/brands.

I like to see it as a Subi, the Sultan in IV was a Subi for me as well, so is this one.

The brand Karin is Rockstars version of Toyota, so that makes the sultan a Toyota Altezza but you can argue that the rear lights have the Mitsubishi Evo IV look. The hood scoop is just a general modification because you can also have it on the Obey Tailgater and as for the GTA IV Sultan RS that has a wide body is Rockstars version of a highly modified Toyota. Nothing about this car suggest that is a Subaru to me.

It's all of them, yet none of them.

It's a Frankenstein vehicle.

A hybrid.

A freak.

A fiction.

 

I modelled mine on an Imprezza..

..but it's not an Imprezza - it's a Sultan.

The brand Karin is Rockstars version of an Asian car manufacturer


Fixed it for you.

I saw a Honda Civic not too long ago that looked exactly like the Sultan from the front.

There are two kinds of people. People who think it looks like an Evo, and people who are wrong.

It's quite obvious that it's a mix of Lexus IS300 (front and overall shape, as well as its engine) and an EVO IV (mostly rear). If you don't see it then go check your eyes.
