I've seen in a few of the threads on here about sports classics that the Z-type is the fastest of the sports classics, and the best handling. If so, would it be worth it to sell my stinger for one? I've also seen the video by Broughy or however you spell his name, and he showed video footage of his lap time with the Z-Type. Is this car truly the best that the sports classics class has to offer? Let me know in the comments.

Yep, definitely. It's insanely fast for a 1930's car, yet relatively easy to handle. I like to race sports classics, and have had great success with the car. I tried using its closest competitor, the Monroe, but the Monroe felt to drifty and unstable. If you need a sports classics car for racing, the Z-Type is well worth it.

 

P.S. - It looks great with chrome and pink rims.

If you plan to race with it, then definitely yes. The Z-Type is by far the best in vehicle in the sports classics class. Disregard any suggestions about the Monroe - the Z-Type outclasses it.

The z type is op.  There is no way a car from the 30's is faster than a lambo from the 70's.

That cheetah in the back, from the looks of it, looks surprisingly good.

I swear Giantsgiants just looks for reasons to post his ugly a** cars. 

 

I don't think the Z-Type is worth it. It's hideous imo and I like driving the Monroe much better.

Whether you appreciate 1930's styling or not is none of the OP's concern. Whether you prefer driving the Monroe or not is irrelevant. The Z-Type posts much quicker times on most if not all race tracks than the Monroe. The Z-Type's straight line speed rivals supercars in the game, and its decent traction and braking are added bonuses. 

 

OP, get a Z-Type. Really.

I never felt like Monroe, was drifty, although in a straight road or that crimnal record silly short track, Z-type will own monroe, but in a legit race with good turns, it will most likely depend on the racer's skill. I basically sold my Z-type, as I rarely raced in sports classic and I found that it looked way too ugly when you tried to cruise in it in free-roam, I prefer the Monroe a lot more for a sports classic car and I love the back of Monroe.

Some people have to tell the truth, even if breaks the heart of others.  The Z-Type is an ugly car, but the best performer of the Sports Classic class.  However, I wouldn't buy it, since Sports Classic races are rare.

As a few people have already said, the Z-Type steamrolls in the Sports Classics class.  The Z-Type is even faster than a few of the Super vehicles, which is insane.  If you're truly trying to win races then, the Z-Type is the ONLY Sports Classics car that you need.  Also, the Z-Type is definitely not an ugly car, you really only hear some of the younger generation saying that.

Its not worth a fifth of its price tag honestly. I think Rockstar wanted it to be a sign of someone's richness but the glitched money days ruined all that.

OP is asking for opinions on Z-Types. I'm going to give my opinion on the Z-Type. I don't like the way it handles and I prefer the Monroe. OP asked "if it is the best sports classic" and I don't think it is, hence why I suggested the Monroe. I'm gonna state my opinion, okay?

 

So back off. Really.

He basically asked whether it was the fastest/most suitable for racing. You simply said that it's ugly and that you like driving the Monroe. That doesn't really answer the OP's question. The Z-Type is most definitiely overpowered for the Sports Classics class. Sure, it's awkward to drive at first, but if you learned how to drive it better you would 100% for sure set better lap times with it than with the Monroe.

No kidding, there's nothing ugly about the Z-Type. Some of it's brain dead owners may destroy the elegance of the car, but its still a helluva ride.

The Roosevelt is the best in the right hands


I swear you cost me more brain cells with every post.

Just because YOU can't DRIVE handle a certain car, does NOT mean that another (SLOOOOOOOW) car is better, by any measure.


OP, the car is fun to drive, a lil slippery but not as bad as I remember the Stinger GT being. I also believe it has the most aggressive, angry, snarling exhaust note in the game. If you race with Catchup off, and understand how to take corners in anything besides an Entity, you have the potential to win every race. The Monroe may be easier to set faster lap times with, though, especially on your Dockyard/Cutting Coroners style of track.

Here's mine :/

I did in fact ask if it was the fastest, and the best that the Sports Classics class had to offer. What I didn't mention was opinions of the car. Though I would like to hear a lot of different opinions on the car, I only asked for stats, really. So, technically, Inbred Walrus hit the nail on the head, while AquaticWonder stated more of an opinion and a belief rather than cold hard facts. Despite that, I am thankful that you both said something about the vehicle, and everyone who has commented thus far has given me different perspectives that I probably couldn't have gained without the help of you all. Please, continue giving opinions and what you believe to be facts about this controversial classic beast. I thank all who have commented. Yes, even you, giantsgiants.

Can't we all just get along?

 

I'm also curious as to how it peforms in comparison to the supers in free-roam, like the Entity. I want one bad, but I don't know if I'll use it too often if it's not that fast.

To those of us still pondering about just how great the Z-Type is, I've decided to use the rest of my money on Trevor in SP to mod it and test it. I will be back with my own personal opinion, and having now owned a stinger, and a Monroe previously, i'll compare it to the two as well. Stay tuned!

Back, guys. So, I did my tests of the Z-Type, and I've got to say, it's a really solid vehicle. I did tests before I fully modded and after I fully modded it. so, without further adieu, here's my personal opinions of the vehicle.

 

Top Speed - The top speed of the vehicle, even before modification, is monstrous. For a sports classics, that is. Legendary Motorsports says that the top MPH is 130, but I find that to be blasphemy. It felt very fast for a car modeled after one from the 30's. And with a full set of modifications, I feel rather confident when I say that it can definitely beat out the Stinger, and quite possibly the Monroe. Z-Type > Monroe > Stinger

 

Acceleration - The acceleration of the Adder's grandpa was exactly what my wording just somewhat entitled; sluggish. When I initially drove it out of the garage, I immediately felt like I was driving a tortoise. I figured that the top speed would follow suit, but I was pleasantly surprised. Compared to the other sports classics, the feeling is really the same. I mean, what else do you expect from a car that is older than the people who are on GTA:O? Z-Type = Stinger = Monroe

 

Handling - Easily one of, if not best in class compared to others. The slipperiness in the back is so easily predicted and corrected that it really feels like driving a modern sports car instead of a classic. The tight but loose feel of the handling makes drifting somewhat of a task, but rewarding when you come out of a sharp turn without a scratch, after a badass slide. It also makes getting back on a straight path after a drift easy, too. Compared to the Stinger and the Monroe, it's almost no contest, in my opinion. The Stinger is blatantly lathered in butter, and the Monroe is a slightly better candidate for handling. But only slight. Z-Type > Monroe > Stinger

 

Braking - Achilles Heel of the car, before and after modifications took place. It was best comparable to the brakes of the Rocoto, in the sense that you don't stop, you slide until you would've normally stopped had you let off the gas and not initially hit the brake. In an urban area, it's very easy to hit things, especially with the length and width of the car mixed with the braking. The braking on the Z-Type looks like rubbish compared to the Stinger. If there's one thing a Grotti car can promise, it's pretty stunning brakes. Monroe's brakes aren't bad, but they aren't on par with the Stinger, if you ask me. Stinger > Monroe > Z-Type

 

Armor - This test was done mainly without any armor on any car, but I did put armor on them all afterwards and tried the same. The result? Yet another win for the Z-Type. With such a big size and heavy-feeling frame, it was pretty inevitable to me which car would survive my rigorous testing in this category. I did multiple things; I took it off of the ramp closest to the parking deck at the airport, and landed each car on it's front on top of the deck. I then took it to the sewer line and flipped it with the sudden elevation on the furthest right side, closest to the body of water. I also drove each car head on into a wall, and finally, I took each car off of Mt. Chiliad. The first test that I listed above, The Z-Type won. The only damage to the front of the car was one busted headlight, a large scratch across the grille, and a little disfiguration expected. The Monroe exploded. The Stinger caved in heavily, but did not explode. Second test, Monroe did best. It came out of the Talledega Nights, Ricky Bobby style flipping the best, with only scratches on the roof and a dent in the small lip on the trunk. Stinger suffered scratches on all sides of the vehicle, and busted windows. The Z-Type's back end dented pretty nicely, and got scratched like crazy. Z-Type took the wall treatment the best, followed by Monroe, then Stinger. The main event, Mt. Chiliad, proved who the true winner was. The Z-Type was battered from head to toe, but was the only vehicle to not explode from the intense beating of the treacherous mountain.

 

All in all, I would say that the Z-Type is definitely worth the money. The handling is incomparable to any other vehicle with some sort of speed in the Sports Classics category, the top speed is blinding, and the look of the car, when modified correctly, is a true beaute. Monroe would come in a close second, for some pretty inevitable reasons. But if you're looking to cruise in style and class, with the sacrifice of a crazy high top speed and decent handling, the Stinger is go to. It is, in my opinion, the best looking Sports Classic there is. Sadly, it will be sold, and ultimately replaced by the beauty shown below.

3 Jesters > a Z-Type..... So short answer is No, not worth it(but then again, the big four in the sports classics are all over priced, and the Z-Type is obviously the superior one).
