Always thought this was a hard one. The Phoenix is rare and satisfying to drive but the Sabre Turbo looks better in my opinion and is better for racing.

Phoenix is one of the best looking cars in the whole game, but i wouldnt use it for races, it's pretty tricky to handle and spins out so often, the only 2 races i've done with the phoenix were a completly nightmare :/ i just cant handle that car, even though i love it! :D

If you could use psychedelic drugs in GTA, I'd probably drive the Pheonix a lot more often.

How many time they going to mention Imponte Phoenix. I'll leave this forum forget about it and look some relevant threads. Therefore, I pick Sabre Turbo and its like a 70' Chevelle.

Phoenix is one if the best cars in the game but I would not use it, or the sabre, for racing.

See this is why Rockstar gave us 2 character slots, you can have both, one on each and have the best of both worlds.

I had a Phoenix for quite a while... it sucks. It looks cool, but its handling is awful. Its acceleration and top speed are decent, but again that is offset by its horrible handling. Thats the main reason I got rid of it and kept a sabre turbo. The latter sounds better, handles better, and loses almost no speed when offroad.

Fair enough but that's the whole point of having a Phoenix in my opinion. With this car you can, if you are good enough, glide round corners; it's awesome. The way the back end constantly kicks out is the joy of this car.

It has nothing to do with my driving. If a car sucks at handling, it sucks at handling. Taking a corner isn't just about making it through without crashing; You've also got to minimize speed loss, which the phoenix is horrible at. It looks cool to drift around a corner, but in the end you haven't really accomplished anything. At least the sabre turbo can take a corner with minimal speed loss.

Phoenix, cornering is not an issue, the mid-drive speed boost in it is second only to the Banshee. Had the Saber for ever, while it holds a corner slightly better, it takes longer to get back on track due to body sway. Phoenix is nice and tight so if it does come out you can get it right back, and with the mid-drive speed boost you will be in first place after the first corner.

 

So with 3-4 months of time with each car as a daily driver and beater, I say Phoenix.

The Phoenix (to me at least) looks better and I've beaten countless Sabre and Gauntlet drivers with it.

Also, the Phoenix has more traction with the added spoilers.

The Sabre spoiler don't do nothing, and looks awful since it's the stripe color.

Its a buick 442. The air intake and tail lights give it away

Um... I think you mean Oldsmobile Cutlass 442.. Thats what the rear looks like and the front grill is a dead ringer for a Buick Skylark GS with the ram air hood from a 442

I'm a fan of both. They are the only two regular muscles I have. If one character doesn't have both, then they are shared between the two.

 

Here are two matching examples I have

Phoenix is only cool to me without a spoiler for some reason.  I enjoy the Sabre Turbo much more when it comes to both looks, and performance.

To paraphrase the great Bob Swerski:

 

"The senseless waste of pitting these two mighty forces of nature against each other, like matter vs. anti-matter, will be a tragedy, not only for the [cars] involved..but for our planet. All nations must band together, to ensure that such a conflageration never takes place."

But if I had to make a choice, Daaaaaaa Sabre.
