Does anyone else think that the cars in Grand Theft Auto V look better than their real life based counterparts? For example I happen to find the Phoenix looks much better than the actual Pontiac Trans Am. Another example is the Karin BeeJay XL which I find looks better than its real Toyota counter part.

Anyone else?

My opinion on this in a nutshell: Hell no!

The cars in V and IV are nice, well most of them, but none of them are better than their real life counterparts in my opinion. I much rather have a 997 Turbo over a Comet, a LaFerrari or P1 over a Turismo R, any Cadillac over the Alpha, a 6/7 series over an Oracle II, and so on.

I prefer having mock cars in GTA instead of real ones because it would make no sense to have real ones when everything else in the game is a parody.

In GTA I can obtain the cars, unlike in real life.

No srsly they are pretty bad designed way too simple f.e. many headlights look like nascar stickers because the are just the negative space of the bodystructure

One that I can think of off the top of my head is the Dominator. It has some more influence from older models, so it looks better than the current Mustang. Even more so if you've seen the 2015 Mustang.

 

The Monroe and Carbonizzare look better than their real life counterpart too.

In certain instances, yes. I think the Fusilade looks much better than it's real life inspiration, the Chrysler Crossfire. Just saying.

The Banshee looks as good as the Viper (MkIII, the modern one owns it now...) but I do think the Firebird, Dominator, Entity (Yep...), Futo, Sultan and the new Alpha look better than their real life counterparts.

The Corvette C7 is ugly as sin, so the Coquette looks far better.

I have absolutely little knowledge of cars, hence i don't even know what the real life counterparts look like. I may know what the real life brands are, but not the specific models.

I don't know what world you are living in, but the Carbonizzare is ugly as sin compared to a California and V12 Zagato and the Miura SV is far better than a Monroe.

Only a few of them. Most of the GTA cars don't look as good as their real life counterparts.

Real Life cars look better obviously. They're in 9999p resolution, 100x AA, ultra large textures,...

Agreed with the cars you listed. The only ones that don`t look better in real counterparts are

Baller 1 - A Range Rover with a Nissan rear end looks kind of weird

Intruder - I like this car and its actually my favorite sedan, but this car looks weird because the front and body looks like a 2000s Infiniti Q45, but the rear end looks like something from the early 1990`s. Think about it, wrap around taillights were a trend in the 1980`s and 1990`s. The rear end is that of a 1993-95 Toyota Corolla LE or 1990 Lexus LS400. I guess that`s why the car was badged as a Karin (GTA counterpart to Toyota) and not a Fathom (GTS counterpart to Infiniti).

Some look real good.

The 9F? Beautiful!

Now the real Audi its based on is too.. But the V version just has a real sleek, smooth, sporty design that for me is better than the real one.

My opinion on this in a nutshell: Hell no!

The cars in V and IV are nice, well most of them, but none of them are better than their real life counterparts in my opinion. I much rather have a 997 Turbo over a Comet, a LaFerrari or P1 over a Turismo R, any Cadillac over the Alpha, a 6/7 series over an Oracle II, and so on.

I prefer having mock cars in GTA instead of real ones because it would make no sense to have real ones when everything else in the game is a parody.

This thread is not about having real life cars in GTA. It's about wheter some cars in GTA are better looking from a design standpoint than their real life counterparts.

On topic:
I'd add Comet and Feltzer (IV version).

Did you even read my f*cking post? No sh*t Sherlock that this thread is about whether GTA cars look better than their real life counterparts. Obviously I discussed that in most of my post.

Keep it up, you'll surely get banned and I can't wait.  Say whatever you need, as you're a fool and not to be taken seriously.  You joined 2 days ago, and you'll probably be banned before you reach 1 week.  Why did you even join?  To spam?

 

On Topic:

 

I love the Carbonizzare the most in GTA V out of any vehicle.  I know what the real life counterpart is, and I like both of those, too.  I am not a car buff in real life and don't know sh*t, so this ends here for me, I am afraid, lol

Ehhh

 

I find the Coquette to be ugly while I sort of like the C7 a little.

Dominator looks okay but WTH did they do to the '15 Mustang?!

Stinger is beautiful, the Surfer looks better than its real counterpart (and is faster too. Try putting a turbo on a VW Kombi bus)

I like the Buffalo II's headlights better than the Chargers. For the rear, I like how it is slanted, but the Charger has a better rear and a better overall shape, the Buffalo is so boxy.
