I mean, it has a lap time so close to a supercar, it's scary.

Bottom line.  Yes, it's worth more than it should be.

It's a very good car if in good hands, but in the same hands other "top" sports cars do just as well.
They can easily keep up or dominate and a good driver can beat an Elegy without a worry.

Wanna know what's overpowered ? The Akuma, the Baller 2, the Huntley S, the Vestra, the Bifta, the Sanchez... and the boat from the beach bum update, forgot it's name.

As It is based on a GTR I don't think it's the performance that should be tweaked, rather the class. The GTR is a super car in real life. A track monster... I say instead of nerf it, reclassify it.

I think that is fair. The Vacca should take it's place in the Sports class. A good trade off imo.

No no. You guys are finding more and more things to talk about. The elegy is good for laptimes because of how it takes corners. In terms of top speed the other sports outclass it. So stahp.

Exactly!  Although, I think it should be replaced with the bullet.  The bullet isn't fit to be in the superclass at all.  At least the vacca can hold it's own.

Very track dependent, it won't get near a Massacro when you put a few hair pin corners with straights to accelerate on afterwards.

Top speed isn't everything.

Is an R35 overpowered? Is the R35 a supercar killer?

 

Yes and yes.

 

Next relevant question please.

So it wins every race except "The Commute"

 

Seriously it's a top third Super in the Sports Class.  If it raced in the Super class it would be on some top 10 leader boards.

The car is a beast in real life, these laps times of the Nirbirgring should answer the OP's question.

Was it just free for CE owners? I never had to pay for it.

Omg the driver in the video posted above got some seriously sexy lines! And I didn't know the Elegy was that good, it kept up with the freaking Entity. I think it looks really good too, glad I got it while it was still free  :lol:

Nope, "Social Club Members". ( socialclub.rockstargames.com )

It did cost $85k for about an hour or two after the update. Thankfully they made it free again right when I decided to go back to it.

i am not sure why everyone loves this car so much, i wanted to, i really like the look of it, but fully modded i just cant drive it. i mean i ended up in such a nerd rage so many times when trying to race with it, and to this day it is the only car i like that i just cant seem to learn how drive properly. maybe i am just jelous but i really dont think this car is all that.

Yeah it is. IMO it'd be more balanced if they nerfed its traction by 5% and increased its breaking by 5%.

It's based on a damn R35 what do you expect? The r35 in real life is scary enough.

They should make it understeer more. The Nissan GTR has amazing speed but lots of understeer. Overall, the GTR is still an outstanding car and so should the Elegy.

I drive mine since October 2nd, and learned to race with it since then. That helps.

Don't worry I had trouble controlling it at first, especially with those brakes >_<

 

In races I've been beaten by many different cars with different drivers, the car isn't everything and the Elegy RH8 doesn't magically makes you a good driver on pole position..

 

In my opinion it still fits the (top) sports cars

 

 

I never understood the appeal of that car..its cheap looking IMO...I am not a great racer but my feltzer and jester do just fine.

You're funny. It only looks "cheap" to some because it is free in GTA.

 

I'm not sure if, in real life one of your friend come and pick you up in a brand new Nissan GTR you will say it looks "cheap"... lol
