it's pretty. Vapid Consort? :lol:


Someone suggested Vapid Cossie, as a nod to GTA 1. Come to think of it, that could be R* doing another throwback car, but this time referencing the 2D era...

I need this thing so bad!  The Escort Mk1 is like, #2 on the list of cars that I'd love to own, and still be able to drive in real life.  Now, if only they'd add an original Mini, a Weeny Issi classic/retro, then we'd have #1.

Not the first time they've done this. The Itali GTB was also a car from the 2D era.

...so, Warrener Custom, maybe? Wonder if it's a separate variant, or perhaps a Benny's upgrade...


Spoiler


Maybe it is exclusive bu Benny? This car is looking good.

My dream is that this will be called the Uranus classic and we get the IV Uranus (kind of looks like an 80s Escort mixed with Cosworth and Mustang) at the same time but I'm not gonna get my hopes up.

Too much to hope for a Granada or a Capri at some point? ;)

And I just hope it comes with a decent amount of customisation - considering that the resemblance is looking good so far, and that the one redeeming quality of recent updates has been the level of fidelity and customisation for newer cars, hopefully this one (and the others coming on Tuesday) won't break that trend...

(likewise, a unique interior wouldn't hurt, would it? :whistle:)

A generic Vapid logo instead of stamping metal (V A P I D) lettering onto the edge of the hood? Come on.


...see, I was just poking around the history of the Escort, to see what else R* might have used to come up with the Vapid Whatever-It-Is, and:

800px-Ford-Escort-Mk2.JPG

 

 

Centre badge, thin 'stripe' across the grille, boxier overall shape - looks to me like R*'s done an Elegy Retro Custom with it, and basically just blended a bunch of minor cues from the Mark II Escort in with the overall Mark I RS2000 look.

 

Frankly, I don't have a problem with that - it's logical, preserves the overall resemblance, and doesn't turn the thing into some horrible Brundlefly-esque hybrid (lookin' at you, FMJ... :barf:). Being able to swap hood/grille/badge with the various LSC options would be ideal, obviously (bit like the LM mods for the GP1), but even without, this car's really looking promising - and I hope that's a sign that the other cars coming on Tuesday are just as good.

And it's quite the departure from 'supers' and 'retro supers', too - maybe I'm being optimistic, but perhaps it's a sign that this update is going to deliver some much-needed variety - ?

I'd rather have much more of these type of cars than supers and sport tbh. I really hope this thing has rally options

lol I know it's not Japanese. I don't like the boxy after though outdated design of such cars.

In fact, this car got no design at all just logical and basic placement of its elements.

I find many European and American cars are badly designed, estheticly speaking.

Yeah, but it not muscle.

Why didn't we get any muscle car for a year now?

I think they will call it Uranus Retro or Classic (and I guess they will give it the nice sound of the Omnis).... but then all the retro/classic cars that we got in GTAO already have their modern counterparts in the game,too ... so maybe we will get the Uranus from GTA IV soon (???)

I was expecting more new sportscars from R* lately, maybe this is a beginning ? some Pfisters/Ubermachts/OBEY sportscars would be more than welcome ....

To be fair the Itali GTB in the HD era is a different car from what it was in GTA 1 (it was a ferrari). But I guess you can say that about the Mamba.

EDIT: Vapid Cossie would be nice!

If it goes to Benny's it should get a livery that is similar to the one on the Escort from Fast and Furious 6 parodied. Also guys, don't get your hopes up too high in terms of speed, irl makes between 60-110 horsepower so unless R* decide to be nice (which they are most definitely not) then its not going to be any Veyron or anything... That being said this is my favourite generation of Escort tat this is based on and I can't wait to have it along with the Uranus from IV
