Welcome to the fourteenth 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 Monroe

The Reigning Champion

An angel rising from the ashes, the Pegassi Monroe brought

a bright flash of elegance to a brute time in automotive history.

Among the muscle cars of the 60's, the Monroe dared to be 

different, it succeeded then, can it succeed now?

 

vs

 

Albany Roosevelt Valor

Classy or trashy, that is the question with the Valor. 

Depending on the owner, this timeless beauty can

wow the judges at pebble beach or it can catch the

eye of your drunk cousin at the biker bar. Can it

catch some votes this week?

 

 

 

 

 

May the best vehicle win.

hard choice as a classic lover, but my vote will go for the monroe again. The Lamborghini Miura is a masterpiece of design and deserve all of our love and vote.

Monroe this week.

 

I like some of the touches of the Roosevelts, but they're just 'too classic'.

Roosevelt....sh*t is so f*cking old school man.....ancient car that today rather would be a luxury sedan, but the kind of cars it is based on were back in the day considered both.

 

Really would have liked more cars in this game comparable to that, totally love it and glad it never was some special snowflake car.

I own the OG Roosevelt, yet to get the Valor, but Valor wins it for me. Just a super classy look, makes me think of the 1920s. Wish there were more cars like it in the game...It's the oldest vehicle in the game, It's certainly worthy of the Concorde D'elegance. The Roosevelt was the epitome of luxury in its day. The unique horn is just icing on the cake, not many cars have that.

This was a tough one for me. The Monroe is probably my favorite base game Sports Classic vehicle, but the problem is exactly that - it's a base game vehicle. It has far less graphical fidelity and overall attention to detail because of this, leaving it very far behind when compared to new arrivals. There are so many new, better options as far as classic Italian sports cars go. The Roosevelt and the Valor (which, honestly, I consider the same vehicle) don't really have any alternatives, much less better ones. They are extremely unique vehicles that fill a niche that nothing else currently can. Plus, honestly, the Valor to me represents the end of the Roosevelt's exclusivity which I was never a fan of despite owning a Roosevelt since it was first released. I very much like the fact that everyone can own one now, meaning if I see one in a player's garage or on the street, it's because they actually like the vehicle rather than having something that others don't.

 

I'll be happy no matter the outcome of this poll, but the Valor earned my vote.

If I have to go with a classic then It's always American for me. So it's the Roosevelt Valor.

Ultimately, I'll always go for the car that does the best job of resembling the real-life car that inspired it - the Monroe is an alright Miura expy, but like so many of the cars at launch (and it's a problem the game inherited from GTA IV, IMO), R* was a lot more 'eh, whatever' when it came to mixing and matching design elements. I'm sure if R* attempted a Miura-based thing today, and gave it to whoever handled the likes of the GP1 or the Cheetah Classic, they'd come up with something much closer to source, and with more customisation options.

(and a $1 million+ price tag, no doubt... :sigh:)


Meanwhile, that's actually what both Roosevelts have in their favour - yeah, the original was the first eyebrow-raisingly-expensive DLC car added to GTAO, but also really close to the real-life 314. And then R* added the Valor, added a bunch of extra custom parts for it based on later Cadillac models, and effectively gave us 'all the things that were great about the original, but more'. For my money, it's no contest - so much so, that I'll overlook that R* put a vintage saloon into 'sports classics'... ;)

I don't like pegasi even though it's one of oldest lambos irl i owe it since i have classic car garage. Roosevelt rock my socks off. First irl it was Al Capone's car plus it has unique horn, also you can have 6 ppl on it and 2 of which can shoot with machine guns which is now specially op with gunning update flaming bullets and all that, that being said only downside is speed.I really wish we could see more retro cars that are from 20s/30s/40s in GTA Online.

Both cars are great but Roosevelt Valor wins it for me. Love how very classical that car is!
