Hyped for this car. Got a place reserved for this beauty. Was actually for a Hermes, but I gave up on that dream.

I still have a place in my 2-car garage next to my Elegy Retro, reserved for the next similar car R* adds. I suspect that when R* announces the final update for GTAO, it'll still be empty...  :cry:

 

Trying not to get too hyped about the cars coming on Tuesday - after all, R*'s confirmed a bunch more supers, so that automatically eats up dev time/resources that could have been spent on more varied things. But at the very least, I'm probably getting this Vapid number, if the promo art isn't just some mean-spirited bait-and-switch... :p

Getting this for sure, moving my Warrener from Paleto garage down to the city and this thing will be sitting pretty up in the Bay.

I look at this and imagine it sounding similar to a Stirling GT/Monroe.

 

Whew, boi.

I hope this is classed as a Muscle car, just to give that class something new (and hopefully good).

Eh, probably not - European Ford with a straight-four. 'Muscle' doesn't really apply. ;)

Wonder if it'll be in Sports or Sports Classics - kinda think Sports would probably work best for it, if R* puts it around the same position in the class as the Tropos Rallye. That whole little rally sub-class with the likes of the Sultan, Tropos Rallye, Kuruma and Stirling GT would be a nice fit for it - or alternatively, R* could put it in Sports Classics, but do like the Stirling GT, and make it usable in Sports races as well. :)

^ I agree that Sports class would be the best for it, although it's technically a compact car, I'd like to race it with Futo and Blista Compact (that both should be in a Compact Class)...

Really never expected them to put an Escort in game, I have the Warrener with the number plate from my Mk2 but it's always been a bit of a poor substitute for me with the Sedans class being so unbalanced. 

 

Need two of this new car to be able to replicate my Mk1s as well. 

 

Just hope they don't mess it up, performance wise the ideal for me is either a faster Warrener with a little less grip or a faster Futo with a little bit more grip.

 

Escorts will slide very easily but they are also very controllable with it. Or to quote Roger Clark "as long as I wasn't looking out of the back window to see where I was going I knew it would be alright" and he knew a thing or two about sliding an Escort around.

 

Just a near standard RS2000 in this instance but it's how he drove the RS1600 and RS1800 as well. 

 

 

Really trying not to get hyped for this, the Tropos and Omnis didn't really reflect the handling and performance of those cars. Really, really hope they don't get it wrong.

 

More classic rear wheel drive stuff would be awesome and the focus on classic Sports and Super recently hopefully bodes well for this. 

 

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

 

The Fast and Furious livery is a normal Ford striping scheme from the Mk1 RS2000.

 

You would hope either that and/or some variation of the Mexico stripe are available.

^ I know... (read under the spoiler tags! ;))

 

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

And ztype.

Looking forwards to this car been sorting out my garages and this would be a nice addition to my classic garage.

I'll actually be annoyed if it's called anything but 'Cossie'.

You need to be legally blind to say that it looks like Warrener. It looks nothing like it, and in fact has a Vapid logo...

Seeing this thing on the horizon has reinvigorated my hopes of seeing the Club make a return.

 MKI, MKII I don't care.

So, what you guys think?

I'm expecting this one to either be in the Coupe or sports classic class, depending on what mods they decide we can add to it.

 

While everyone is suggesting Vapid 'Cossie' for a possible name, everyone is forgetting that the original MK1 Escort 'Sport' was the Mexico, the flat 4 1.6 engine and a few mods to uprate it and improve the suspension and handling.  This new car looks like a classic Mexico more than anything else so I wouldn't be surprised if the name derrived in that direction.

I cannot wait to add this car to my collection and I hope it handles and drives as well as it looks, but Cossie isn't the name for me....
