I'm guessing I'm not the first to notice this sign:

 

Buckingham.jpg

 

So did they made cars in previous GTA games, besides luxury aircraft? Cause I don't remember any...

 

I would love to see some ultra luxury cars introduced with an aviation background, maybe a spyker clone?

Any other Buckingham owners here also interested in expanding their fleet?

Buckingham have been an aircraft manufacturer only throughout the GTA series.

 

Looks like a Bullet in the logo.

"Buckingham is a British aircraft manufacturer in the HD Universe of the Grand Theft Auto series." Just search on the wiki page of gta...

But where the logo is present is on Luxury Autos, a car dealership.

Insert is right; the silhouette is indeed a Bullet:

Spoiler

You can see the rear spoiler raising up, the vent behind the door and the sloped roof and front. Also, the back has the same angle.
Why does it show a Bullet if it's an airplane store (probably for business stuff)?

*edit*
Guy in topic quotes wiki and says to look on wiki page. I did and on the SAME page he looked at, in the trivia it says:
"Luxury Autos shows Buckingham with a car design below it on a window, implying Buckingham has once made a car."

Once again, just like Insert said.

*edit*
Post below mine made me think of something. You know Harley Davidson "made" a truck with Ford? Some pick-up truck that had a special paintjob and the Harley Davidson badge all over it. Maybe Buckingham paired up with the maker of the Bullet GT (which is a Ford GT). Pretty much the same as Harley and Ford but with a plane maker instead of a motorcycle maker.

Like the wiki says yes. With the info that we have, Its still a good assumption that Buckingham makes cars as well as planes.

 

Cause I can find no affiliation between the luxury cars dealership and elitas travel, for there to be a aircraft logo on the dealership..

Don't Rolls Royce make planes or at least plane engines?

Their main headquarters is in Buckingham Gate, Westminster according to Wikipedia http://en.m.wikipedi...Rolls-Royce_plc

Rolls Royce DLC confirmed! You heard it here first!

I'm saying the building is just a dealership, and dealerships can have names like that...

It doesn't mean sh*t to having Buckingham cars is what I'm basically saying. They just named it that cause it sounded fancy and sells exotics.

JoBuilt made a semi and the P-996 Lazer. Western made the Bagger and the Annihilator. So why doesn't Buckingham make a land vehicle too?

It's weird to think a semi-truck manufacturer made an army jet and a motorcycle manufacturer made an attack chopper.

Turns out JoBuilt made the Mammatus and the Velum. I didn't know any of this stuff. My mind is blown, seriously.

it's just the name of the dealership people. how many other real life manufacturers have their name in the game? none, so why do some people think it is in referance to a real company?

Not sure about this, but do you remember the "Windsor" in the old GTA San Andreas?

windsor%202.jpgIt could be a "Buckinham" or a "Ocelot"

I'd definitely call the Windsor an Ocelot. There's no way it isn't an XKR.

It's more of an E-Type, though still would be Ocelot.

On the dealership Buckingham is clearly a car manufacturer

 

LuxuryAutos-GTAV.jpg

 

The name of the dealership is "Luxury Autos" with Pfister visible on the right window with another outline of a Vapid Bullet. My best guess is that the dealership is using the outline of a Bullet as their logo and Buckingham does make cars in the GTA universe, but none are actually game. Like the ads in GTA 3 for the Maibatsu Monstrosity or the Imponte Insurrection ads from SA.

 

The only other thing I can think of is that they sell Buckingham branded items, but that wouldn't make much sense since Pfister is on the opposite window and they have their own "Pfister Design" store in the same area.

Wel saab was a airplane manufacturer until it went to make cars for a while.

The Enus Super Diamond is a Rolls Royce Phantom though. Enus = Rolls Royce/Bentley - both of which are British car manufacturers (luxury cars)

Maybe it's just a dealership for high end cars

I'm thinking Buckingham did something similar.

Since they make modern aircraft like the Luxor and we have never seen a car by them it's most likely that...

 

A. They made cars a long time ago. Look at the font on the window, looks like that old style you see associated with classic aviation. That can mean that they made cars in the past (possibly alongside their aircraft) and have stopped to focus on aircraft and have since become insanely rare and collectible, since none are on the road.

B. They make new cars, but are sold in limited numbers. The font could be a reference to their origin from making aircraft years ago and the reason we never see any of their cars is because of their high price/extremely limited numbers.

 

 

Then again, there were supposed to only be 40 Stinger GTs and 10 Z-Types ever made, but we can buy those.

 

I've heard rumors of an aviation themed update and since there are usually new cars with the updates it would fit in with the aviation theme to put in some cars from a company with a background in aviation. Might see a Buckingham made car one day.

It was a Dutch plane manufacturer untill the 1920's and later got picked up in 1999 and started produced sports cars.

Actually it looks like the "Eagle Speedster" based on the e-type
