Greetings and welcome to issue #30 of Customs, Cruisers & Classics! Right off the top I'd like to mention that I will be taking a seasonal recess from CC&C to spend time with family and loved ones, Thugazi will sub in here and there to still provide you with some of the community's best snaps! His version of the issues are very refreshing! Speaking of the devil, we have an interview with Thugazi in the Featured Photographer's section down below! Thank you all for your continued support of CC&C it would not be what is today so thank you all, will hope to see you in the near future!
The Coil Cyclone
(Photo by: Carrythxd)
The final land vehicle of the Smugglers Run DLC is finally here! The Coil Cyclone is a 2-door passenger, AWD vehicle based in the Supers class. Being from the Coil brand, you can guess it is an all electric vehicle and has insane acceleration and is the fastest accelerating vehicles in the game (not counting those with rocket boosters)! Since the Cyclone is electric and only has one gear, it does not boast a great top speed, but its low to mid-range performance is where it shines and could prove to do well on a technical track in the races! Cosmetic wise the Cyclone does carry a few body-add ons and liveries to make sure your vehicle stands out and is unique to you! The Coil Cyclone has a price tag of $1,890,000 in the Legendary Motorsports website and is available for purchase right now!
The Coil Cyclone is nearly a carbon copy of the Rimac Concept One.

The videos will always be put in spoiler tags so you may view at your own time and to avoid mobile users from accidentally clicking the play button when scrolling. Time to tickle your brain with the vibrations of
The Song of my People!
You know Thugazi as a regular contributor to CC&C, regular poster throughout the forums, and friend to many of us -or maybe you haven't been keeping up with the name changes? Please welcome, Arthur Fookin Shelby-Nero-Thugazi!
You've been changing names pretty often lately, is Thugazi here to stay?
I'm fickle as hell, so don't be surprised if I disappear under a new moniker.
What first got you interested in being a host for CC&C formerly known as the Snapmatic Spotlight?
I loved what the community was doing; everyone's individual styles for their snaps and felt this kinda creativity was overlooked. I remember checking out uNi's Snapmatic Spotlight on his site and pretty much wanted to continue that but here.
What is your favorite part of putting together an issue of CC&C?
I have more fun composing the issues since you took over. Adding the extra content has given me more freedom to be creative with it, well as creative as a guy can be reposting other member's content. As for your actual question I'd have to say choosing the vehicle snaps, it can be arduous limiting which I pick as they're so bloody güd.
What got you interested in cars/bikes?
Hackneyed, but growing up watching Top Gear. I still wouldn't fully consider myself a petrolhead, it's mostly the visuals for me.
How long have you been into the GTA series games?
Since playing GTA: Liberty City Stories on a mate's PSP. From whence I was birthed I lusted for a virtual crime simulator where I could dismember civilians with rocket propelled explosive warheads and GTA bridged that desire.
Do you have a preference in what type of cars/bikes you shoot? (Japanese, American, Euro, etc)
I tend to lean more towards European but I don't discriminate and like to shoot a variety.
What is your favorite vehicle in the GTA series of all time?
Oh damn, that's tricky. Looking back for me, SA had the goat car list but it's been a while so I'm as hazy as the game's textures. IV's Sentinel.
Is there a vehicle from any GTA series that you would want to see return?
SA Comet, a classic 911 sans drift spec kits would be killer.
What is your favorite car or bike in real life?
It's always changing but as of late i've been digging the 1st gen Saab 9-5.
Can you name your favorite car/racing game of all time?
NFS Undercover[PS2] / TDU2[PS3] / Road Rash[SEGA MEGA DRIVE]
Do you use any other type of photo editors outside of the Rockstar Editor?
Snapseed. (app lol)
Do you have any photography tips for the readers?
First and foremost - check the thread, see what the OG's are doing. Mine are nothing special so as far as tips go I'd say, don't overdo it. If in doubt don't use vignette, don't exaggerate angles too much nobody likes vertigo.
Most importantly find your best way to upload your images for your platform. If you're on PS4, swap your screenshot taker from jpg to png and send them to a dedicated chat where you can save them from your phone/laptop then upload them to a host like imgur/flickr; this ensures you won't lose as much quality. Bless Raspy for telling me adamantly to do that.
If you could create your own Medal on GTAF what would it be and who would be the first recipents?
One with a phallic likeness rewarded to any turgid twats.
Is there anything you would like to see be added in GTAF in the future?
Give GTAGarage a cleanup. GTAF has a creative modding community and it would make sense to have fluidity between the sibling sites. Oh and maybe some more flags, Flags are cool. n gg Tank.
Any pet peeves with the automotive community?
Those who hate on vehicles due to where they originate geographically whilst ignorant on anything attributed to it. e.g. that hkm87 dork.
Do you have any hobbies outside of GTAF you care to share?
If there's pump and I can find my nads that day I might surf. Mostly I'm just kicking back and loving my doggy.
For games of late it's been Wolfenstein, MGSV, Battlefield 4 and The Witcher 3
Any other comments or shout outs?
Keep doing you vehicle screens thread.
I thank you very much for changing my bum life with being the new host of CC&C and for always lending a hand with the issues!
