As long as it can go from land, to sea seamlessly (blazer Aqua) I'll be satisfied.

My new favorite toy.

May sell my Ardent for this if it's a PV and can seamlessly travel on both land and sea.

Car looks nice, don't care about the gimmick

It can fire torpedoes underwater. About f*cking time.

The car is obviously going to be one of the new Grottis.  Probably the one in the hanger.

We are living the very last days of taunting everyone while hiding in a submarine to survive a bounty.

Fully expecting underwater muggers to become a thing - pull you out, steal your cash and car, and leave you stranded a few hundred fathoms beneath the surface! 

 

PSA: unless R* bring in the flippers and airtank from SP, stepping out of your vehicle whilst submerged is not recommended (I know... inb4 tryhard rebreathers)

I wonder if the submarine car is a car thats clearly not an espirit because if it was that'd be too close to be a proper parody and they didnt want to risk it

Pretty much this. I'd love it to have a stock variant, same goes to Deluxo as well.

On the other hand, if done right, this car could give people a reason to explore the ocean. I don't believe R* could add some collectibles or activities related to it, but hey, better something than nothing, I guess.

So it's confirmed it can transform, for the people that were worried about it being 2 separate vehicles.

My main thoughts right now are could this be a custom version of an original vehicle? or will the stromburg have these abilities stock and transform at will.

So the Ardent, which clearly is a Lotus Esprit, gets a plastic bullet machine-gun, while a completely different car becomes what it was meant to be? I can sense a case of unloved child right here...

On a different subject, I find it really interesting how far are the devs pushing the engine limits of the game. Folks with any experience creating mods know that a game engine is designed for the features it was originally meant to take, everything in the game being limited by it and having to work by its rules. GTA has the advantage of having a very rich engine considering all the things that the players can do, but more and more we see new content that really step the line of its limits.

Unlike modders, devs have the advantage of controlling the engine as well, but that's very risky to do, since adding a new line to an existing, gigantic system can break it. This probably started with the heists (which devs themselves stated to be a pain to make them work), the yachts that can't move at all (unlike the traveling scene seems to suggest), the control base truck which the "interior" isn't part of the truck at all, and now a car that flies and another that van dive into the water. Interesting, but at the same time frightening of many possible upcoming bugs.

If this car is based on the first génération of the Esprit, are we going to get the stock rims from the Ardent ? Because logically those rims only belongs to the S1.

Wow. Looking at the latest Twitter shot, it's a tiny car. Very much like the Tropos in size / style (maybe similar performance on land?) but with pop-up/out torpedoes, fins, props and periscope instead of moving headlights. 

Very interested to see how the wheels are hidden away and what the retraction / deployment times are like.

Looks like the Stromburg looks more like a '78 Esprit?

What happens when u drive this underwater while windows are broken? Would water enter the vehicle and drown u? Or would u still be able to drive it normally? The first option would make this vehicle pretty sh*tty, while the second would make the best of rockstar logic
