Welcome to the sixth week of a forum game called the Weekly Vehicle Showdown. In this game, vehicles face off against each other in a forum poll. At the end of the week, the winner is crowned. The reign is short lived however, the following week, a random vehicle will be selected
to face off against the current champion. We will keep going until we cover every vehicle in GTA V and GTA Online, and have one overall champion. In the thread feel free to
discuss the positives and negatives of each vehicle, your opinions, facts, videos, pictures, whatever you like to strengthen your argument for why the vehicle you are voting
for deserves to win, and the other does not.

 

Rules:
If you post mulitiple photos or videos of any vehicle, use spoiler tags.
Do not go off topic. Discuss only the vehicles being voted on.
Be respectful of other peoples opinions.
Do not cheat; creating multiple accounts to vote, etc.
Do not vote based on the photos in the OP.
This is not a Snapmatic competition.
Have fun!

 

 

 

Pegassi Tempesta

The Reigning Champion

The new kid on the block, the Pegassi Tempesta showed up one day and
never ever left. Immediately overshadowing it's cousin the Reaper, it took Los Santos
by storm as the new must have super car. Does it have enough in it to overshadow our
current competitor?


vs

 

Armored Karin Kuruma

 

 

omIuvobfhEahehsApf-RTQ_0_0.jpg

 

The perfect car to go with your flesh tunnel earrings, frosted spikes, and oversize jeans. Buy this and you'll never fail to be mistaken for a small town drug dealer again.

This edition helps prevent a mistake turning into a tragedy with armor plating. Will it's armor be enough to hold off the Tempesta fanboys?

 

May the best vehicle win.

The Tempesta hasn't lost yet? What is this blasphemy? I hope the Kuruma wins this one.

I think it's about time someone got over the burn caused by the Tempesta crushing a certain out-dated junk of a muscle car.

 

Voted Tempesta Obviously.

So the one car gets almost like professional photo for a car show and the second cars has a photo that could be titled "Meh"
If the photo of the Kuruma had as much love in it, it may be a competitor, but at the moment no way. IMO

PS! Does anyone know the Tempestas color combo? Is it just Metals and the filter or whatever is used, make it look like a modded color?

The Armored Kuruma used to be a nice car, one of my favourites. But after a year of grinding heists , I wanted more of a challenge, and I decided to do missions on foot instead of relying on the Kuruma.

I was in for a crude awakening. I realized what the Kuruma did. It made every single mission in the game linear.

* Get in Kuruma
* Shoot.
* Drive back to final checkpoint.


* Pac Stan - Hack
* Pac Stan - Convoy
* Pac Stan - Bikes
* Prison Break - Plane
* Humane Labs - Insurgents

These Heist Setups above can be approached in a variety of different ways, using different types of vehicles, or on foot, making you actually check your health & armor bars, picking your cover locations carefully, frankly, each time I did those missions, it felt different from the last time I did it. The sense of satisfaction you get after completing a mission with careful planning and teamwork, that is what this game was made for. The over reliance on the Kuruma, that should never have happened. I still love mine, and I'm glad it made stuff easier for everyone, but neither the game nor the players really need it.

My vote goes to the Tempesta.

To be fair, the Kuruma photo is just a placeholder until I have time to raid socialclub for a proper one.

That said, as already mentioned, the pictures are just for a reference, and are not what the poll is about. Theoretically there could be no photos and the outcome would be the same.

Also, it is allowed to post pics of either car if you feel it will persuade people to vote for your favorite.

Class:
Super car vs. Sports car. No other car in any class will defeat this Super car.
A fair contest would be the Tempesta vs. another Super car.

 

Looks:

Let's place a Frank Frazzeta painting beside a Basquiat painting. I mean, yikes.

Frazetta

Spoiler

vs. 

Basquiat

Spoiler


Performance:
One is designed for speed, aerodynamics, and handling perfection.
The other is designed to roll on four wheels and keep you from getting shot by a 141 with a Gusenburg Sweeper.

Overall:
I voted Kuma because it's an overall better car for ALL situations, be it Free Roam, VIP, Contact Mission, or even like-class racing (tho, obviously, not the best).
The Tempesta is what it is: beautiful, fast, sleek, sexy, and pricey. But, in my opinion, it's not an overall, well-rounded car for ALL situations. 

Looking forward to the next one up. Cheers! :)

Ooh, that's rough...I don't like the Tempesta too much myself, but I don't like the Kuruma even more because of obvious reasons...gah, I'll cave in to the Tempesta this week.

Last day for this round. Unless a big influx of voters comes in, I don't see much saving the Kuruma.

Interesting, because I thought it would easily win. I mean, people are always saying about how much it is "needed".

There are tons of griefing memories associated with the Kuruma as well. That's probably the reason.
