As I posted before, I did end up getting one.  Here it is next to my Elegy.



Elegy is still a better racer, but the Carbonizzaire is a very fun car, and I love the retractable hard top.

Love my Carbo. Find it faster than the Elegy and really fun to race once you've mastered the handling. Only comes unstuck when I hit the offroad section on Grand Tour. Elegy is a great all round option though. Easy to drive

No contest between them, the Elegy is far better, but it's a matter of preference. You can prefer the carbonizzare, and like it more, but the elegy is better and that's fact.

This whole "driver preference" thing is so much BS!  


Sure cars have different feel and set - ups, but that's what practice is for. Good drivers will get the best out of every car and post their best laps in the fastest.


If your not fastest in an Elegy that's not a preference, it's a disability!

lol I always dig anyone in an Elegy out with my Carb.

Step 1: Buy a car based on highest top speed, thus the Carbonizzare.

Step 2: Become accustomed to it to the point of being a decent racer.

Step 3: Join random lobbies and beat random noobs who drive an Elegy because it's free.

Step 4: Bask in your victory.

Step 5: Come to the conclusion that your car is the best car ever. Or that you are the best racer ever, whatever works. 


It's been proven over and over again that the Elegy is the fastest sports car due to it's decent acceleration and amazing traction. The only car putting up a fight consistently is the Jester. The Massacro and the Carbonizzare demand an amazing driver in order for them to compete with the Elegy.

Carbonnizare is both quicker (acceleration) and faster (top speed)


But RH8 will win races more consistently vs a Carbonnizare due to handling and traction.

It's no slouch fully upgraded


I got a Carbonnizare because of the looks and the hardtop convertible but I can make it work, in races.

The Elegy is fast in theory but it drives nothing like a real car and feels very weird to say the least. The Carbo however is the exact opposite and drives just like any decent car should.

Carbo. The Elegy is the every-man's car. Don't be that guy.
