Another week, another custom, another super.

Benny's has had some new stock delivered this morning in the form of the Itali GTB by manufacturer Progen. First featured in the original GTA, the Itali GTB returns in all its HD glory. It can be purchased for just over a million dollars and promises to pack a punch in the speed department.

If you angle it just right for a Snapmatic, it also looks like it has a smiley face, or is that just me...?
 
In addition, you no longer have to travel to Benny's to kit out your customs, as a new purchasable extension can be added to your auto shop in Executive Offices. It's slowly getting to the point where we don't have to even leave our HQ!

This brings back old GTA1 Memories. I just love the yellow color. Although it's inspired by Ferrari, I believe the Front Lacks the Ferrari-sh design. I'm glad that this was added. Finally savings all money will pay off.

At first it was the name and brand alluded to it being a Ferrari/Mclaren combination, but when pictures got released someone pointed out it was more to the looks of a fairly unknown American super, the Trion Nemesis.

A car which is near impossible to find a high quality picture of it in real life that isn't graphically rendered or extremely low quality.

When you see either picture of the car however it's clear it was heavily inspired by it, from the front fascia to the stripe on the roof.

How much does the Benny extension to the in-office garage cost?

Apparently it's just the auto shop add-on which you can buy for $900k, and it includes Benny's custom mods. The newswire made it sound like further upgrade. I'm too poor to check myself as I'm saving my in-game pennies :p

 

(Thanks Ermac)

I'm surprised that Bennys is now dabbling in supercars when they ought to be making a lowrider version of the Emperor.

 

The fact that wasn't part of the original lowrider update makes me want to beat myself with extension cord.

Looks hideous. Rockstar should've keep it as 80s or 90s Ferrari like GTA1 instead of whatever this is. Definitely not a buy for me.

I don't see what's the big deal? Supercars are way better than lowriders.

I'm unaffected by these kinds of updates. I don't need anymore supercars.

As much as i love super cars, i honestly think this one, though good performing and not that ugly as most people think it is is a bit meh.

Also the super class....i never thought i'd say it, but we have about enough of them by now unless they are planning to finally implement a few convertibles.

I think how ever, that well, besides the obvious things like more glitch and bug fixes and a balancing update(never gonna happen because they do not make cash card sales), this game could use more sedans, coupes and luxury suv's

Both the offroad class, super class, sport class and compact class pretty much have all the nice things in it now that are possible and the muscle class....well, parts of pretty much every well known muscle car can be found in gtao muscle cars.

some coupes, sedans and luxurious suv's, and maybe a few classic supper cars, a few gran tourer sports and japanese cars in general though....especially that last one, we barely have any.

I think the game has surpassed its climax. That climax depends on your taste, and for me it was probably the heists. Completing the criminal mastermind with my friends was the best experience. I have appreciated motorcycle clubs and CEO work, but at the end of the day it just feels like grinding. I find myself ignoring updates like this super car thinking why would I want to throw another few million dollars into something that will inevitably sit in my garage collecting dust. I haven't even bought that new, fancy garage. It doesn't really add anything to the game (for me). I find myself playing deathmatches more often than not because it beats the hell out of grinding and doesn't get old (for me).

I like how the car looks on the picture on the newswire. Just wish we got more "Normal" cars, but i guess you gotta go fast all the time in GTA Online.

This is true. But variety is the spice of life. Sometimes it's nice just the cruise downtown in a nice low rider while shooting out the window in true gangster style.

In your opinion perhaps. I prefer lowriders, luxury SUVs, bucket cars, and tuner cars more and these car types/classes are usually overshadowed by the 3-4 supercars that come with every update.
