So quick couple of questions for those that already have access to this (pc players).

1. How many explosives does it take to destroy?

2. Can the rims be changed from the stock ones?

3. What mods can be done to this in the moc? Apparently it can be fitted with missiles, what about armor or land mines?

Thing looks neat, will probably pick it up if it isn't weak sauce against explosives.

Aye welcome back Zee! :D

To answer your questions:

 

  1. One Rocket/explosion. Even with 100% Armor. 
     
  2. Yes, the rims can be changed, but not legitemately. You need iFruit and Charles - but they won't change in a way you'd think...
    Spoiler

    The Stock Tires can be painted, too. 
     
  3. All the Basics (Armor, Brakes, Engine, Transmission, Turbo, Bulletproof Tires, Respray (only primary colour available btw), ect.). The only "unique" thing it will have is the Homing Rockets (costs like 180k). And yes, they're Homing. No idea if it will have an infinite amount or not; it looks like it can have 8, but I could be wrong. And no, the missiles are not a research item :p 
    Oh, and it comes with bullet-resistant windows as stock, too.

Would also like to let you know that is has a boost equally as strong as the Rocket Voltic. Plus, its weight is the same as the Insurgent, so the weight + the boost makes it a Juggernaut through traffic. It can't turn for sh*t though, lol.

 

It's classed as a Super Car (but unable to be used in Races). It also has no Vehicle Manufacturer.

 

Same engine sound as the Fränken Stange, btw :D

 

 

 

 

Thanks to FoxySnaps for all the info.

Part of me thinks that this car has NO place in the game. Another part of me KNOWS that this car has NO place in the game. But a small part of me will still buy it any way. After the rocket bike, nothing needs to make sense anymore.

I hope the Halloween update will include some vigilante and superhero masks, if we're going this way.
I will buy this car just for sake of movie prop.

Looks rad and the homing missiles and boost are cool, but no explosive resistance is a dealbreaker. Hard to feel like a vigilante badass if one jackass with a homing launcher on a roof can nuke you.

f*ck this car and f*ck GTA for putting it in. I miss the old days of GTA4, having pistol shootout car chases in rickety old slidey, floppy sedans. It's additions like this that ruin car chases as a fun way of pvp. Hell the mechanic of being able to throw sticky bombs ruined car chases. This is just pissing on the grave of what should be a staple activity in a game called...

I have to agree on a certain level. Sometimes I do love the all out craziness of it... honestly, being able to jump into a jet or a fighter plane (and have choices of which one) and do some good dogfights is something I've been waiting on for a while, and there is a lot of excitement from the mosh up of APC's and tanks and planes causing massive explosions. There are a lot of times when I have a lot of fun with that... except for the flying bikes, those can eat a dick.

But, a lot of times I get in the mood for some good old school GTA cops and robbers type sh*t, or some gangster sh*t with gang turfs and rivals, and old school shoot outs with regular cars and lowriders, like you mentioned above. I miss that more and more, especially with the ability to do it pretty much out the window.

Ultimately, with all the jumping of the shark, there should be different lobby and server settings... one that allows it all, like it is currently, and another that disables the super military machines and brings it back to old school. A choice between the 2 would be really nice.

Thanks Classique, tough choice to make on this. Homing launchers sound great but the no explosive resistance is almost a deal breaker. Will probably buy it for use in certain missions. Nananananana Zee Lolz!

Irl a replica Tumbler was on sale in Saudi Arabia for 1mil...

You know what, screw trying to rationalize this, we got a flying bike that shoots missles, we are past the point of no return.If anything it's kinda a slap in the face that R* has given us "Kitt", Rocket bike, and the f***king Batmobile, before releasing a damn JETPACK.

Also, ppl been wanting nitros upgrades for their vehicles since the game released(Sabre Turbo's rollcage mod comes to mind)and we instead are getting jet turbine powered rocket cars instead.Wtf?

Well, like you said, sticky bombs ruined car chases a long time ago, the moment another player gets close to you the bombs start getting chucked around. You can either b**** about a car that doesn't actually change anything in regards to how rare a decent car chase is, or embrace the insanity and actually enjoy the game.

I picked a great time to retire from the game.

 

These type of decisions by R* continue to water down the franchise into gimmickry and stupidity.

 

C'mon "Everywhere" I'm ready for an interesting gaming experience.   R* and T2 have monetized GTA to death to where it's not GTA anymore.

 

People will take off the beer goggles eventually... I hope.

I'm personally really looking forward to this car, I know the Gta Puriests dislike the car so this is no disrespectful in anyway, but I personally love additions like this to the game, it's a video game which everyone can enjoy, wether it's a flying bike that goes around flying across the sky, to a rocket car which is basically rocket league in a nutshell, vehicles like this are a great addition and are fun additions to the game,

Sticky bombs in GTA4 were fine. If you knew someone was close to your passenger door for about three seconds you tuck and rolled outta the sh*t. It's the fact that every character now is like Tom Brady with a sticky bomb while driving at 100+ miles per hour that gets me.

 

And embrace the insanity? I don't have the GTA cash to do that. I can't afford one of these things especially after buying what I actually want, the new V8 Vantage look alike and Escort look alike and the sad part is I know with this in the game that I won't be able to drive either of those cars I want 2 blocks without being obliterated by some wannabe batman

Imagine seeing that in your rearview mirror. Would be glorious, I was lucky enough to see a 60's Batmobile on the road once, couldn't believe it when I saw it, found out there was a car show going on nearby. 

 

Seeing that video though does bring up my nitpick with this car, while I love it, I think they could've mixed Batmobile designs better. the rear borrows heavily from Snyder and Nolan, but overall it either goes too far or not far enough with its mix of designs, wish they'd either gone even more Burton and smoothed it out more and made the rear a little shorter or amped up the Snyder and Nolan influence and given it a more rugged appearance on the rest of the vehicle. A pinstriping secondary color or livery option would've been great as well as a shoutout to the 60's. But as I said those are just my personal nitpicks, as someone who's a comic book nerd and a fan of cars I'm stoked to be getting something based on the Batmobile.

This car may be a nuisance for a couple weeks, but once the new car smell wears off people will go right back to whatever they were driving before. Those people would've just come after you in a different vehicle regardless of the Batmobile releasing, they have more durable and more destructive vehicles to choose from that are easier to drive. This vehicle isn't going to have any lasting impact on the game, it's not the first weaponized vehicle, it's not the most heavily armed vehicle, it's not the best handling vehicle, and it's not even close to being the most durable. I think so long as you're careful you'll still get to enjoy your Vantage and Escort, I certainly am not gonna let griefers stop me from enjoying my Vantage when it drops.

Lol at the haters... why do you even care?! I think it's awesome and pays homage not only to the Tumbler from the back, but the 89/90s animated Batmobile amalgamation for the front. Looks cool to me!

Yeah, I don't get the hate. We already have a bunch of weaponized vehicles, so I don't see the big deal about this. As far as weapons and features go it's just a Rocket Voltic with the Ruiner 2K's weaponry. At least it's something more unique than the "futuristic" supers that R* has been churning out since the start of GTA Online.

But the Vigilante and Hunter are in the same update. No Vigilante=No Hunter. Also a Deluxo would be sweet, but it'll prob have the functionality of the Ardent.

.............no the vigilante is not the mashup most wanted but it isn't as bad as most are making out. Or am I just big enough batman fanboy to just be happy we are getting some form of batmobile.
