I like it but why did they put those ugly yellow headlight covers on?

Because french cars of that period commonly had yellow headlamps - it was supposed to reduce glare in for.

I can imagine french players going nuts for this car, the French are generally very patriotic with their car purchases irl
 
No. And not at all.
It's just cost less, irl.
That's funny, I've always praised the french to friends for being patriotic when buying cars and supporting their own industry and all the time it was just economics!
 
Well, being obnoxious, stuck up, cheese eating surrender monkeys, that might be the only thing they've got going for them. (apart from the fact they have the worlds most nuclear weapons)
Surrender monkeys = not interfering warmongers

OT I find it's narrowness useful in carving through traffic at speed

To me it looks like a combo of an old porsche 911, Jensen Interceptor and Citroen CM and altogether I think it looks great the perfect balance of 70's and 80's styling with class to go with it.

Not sure if it's based on  a Maserati, Lambo, Lancia or w/e

 

Easy answer: Which one of those makes is French?

Answer: None. Ergo, it is none.

 

Question: What country mandated, by law, yellow headlamps?

Answer: France.

 

Its a Citroen.

 

The Glendale also appears to have yellow headlamps, and that's definitely German.  So although I agree it's clearly a Citroen, your logic is slightly flawed...

Okay, Okay!  I said I wasn't sure what it was based on. I'll take your word that it's Citroen.

Regardless of what it looks like, it's performance it's absolutely terrible. Slow, weird timing on the gear changes, just not for me. I do think that it can be done up to look really nice.

Would look nice without the awful hood.

 

Looks stupid that the hood is extremely rusty, yet the rest of the car is perfectly clean.

I believe it is based off of a Maserati Indy. The Lampadati brand in GTA is the Maserati brand in the real world.

Your classic dual round Benzes had yellow fogs. 

 

R*, despite making a car themed game, have no idea what they're doing and made them both yellow. Before anyone argues, I bring up the cheese grater  Zentoro as an example. Its got the individual exhaust ports for each cylinder (the cheesegrater) and a giant lame ass fart can exhaust to boot.

 

Pigalle = Citroen.

I bet you like Adders, and have no taste in vehicles, probably because you're 12.

 

it looks better then the real world citreon its based upon.

 

whats with all the citreon love? ugly boring cars. remind me of saab and volvo. ugly boring cars.  and the words classic and citreon dont belong together either.

Noticed it's a front wheel drive (forget the actual name). It looks ugly, yet cool at the same time...so of course I got it. Also I laughed so damn hard when I saw the Panto...then I added a spoiler to it...because why the hell not.

I absolutely love this car. When I saw it, I first thought of the Jensen Intersepter from which I've based mine upon. I'll post some pics as soon as I can! :)

 

I look forward to seeing them, friend!

This car is so classy.

 

Nice, I like the color.

 

I like it but why did they put those ugly yellow headlight covers on?

 

Because that was put on a lot of European cars in the 1970s and 1980s.

 

Here's my Switzerland-themed Pigalle.

For once, you do not completely ruin a car. But still, that is the only compliment you'll hear from me. Though I still dislike you. A lot.

You may find Citroen's to be ugly, but in some ways I do, in some ways I don't. I've always thought they had a unique design to the cars many years ago, that they stood out amongst the other European cars of the 70s and 80s. The company thought out of the box, and I am glad they did as they designed two of my most favorite European cars.

 

The Citroen 2CV (which I think should be in GTA V, though it would be and is a slow car)

The Citroen DS (a car that was in Mafia II but does hold a special place in my heart, and I would like to see it in GTA V)

I've driven this car a bit in story mode and I'm sort of not completely sold on it. Its a very cool looking car, and it is quite quiet so a very nice cruiser. But the fact that its front wheel drive seems to be a major downside. Then considering the $400,000 price tag, it is a tough decision.

Anybody care to offer any buying advice? I'd also like to know if those window louvres add any protection against gunfire.

I tested it earlier. The louvres are like the ones for the Dominator -bullets whizz right through them. No protection.

The real life car (Citroen SM) has a Maserati engine, that must be why it's a Lampadati.

A select couple of people in this thread with very poor automotive tastes.

Go and push your Adders and Zentornos off the Del Perro pier, I'd take 10 of these over your overpriced YOLOSWAG piece of garbage.
