I decided to make a comparison thread similar to Manhunt/Manhunt 2 Vehicle Discussion, as I think it will be interesting to compare the newly uncovered beta vehicles vs their final counterparts.

 

I will start with Cheetah vs Rocket (or Testeros, model is same):

While shape-wise it remains almost the same, notable changes in the final version can be seen in the more detailed front window, removed front plate, replaced badges with emblems, almost completely remodeled rear, smaller rear plate, modeled exhausts and re-positioned front wheel arches. Also not limited to Rocket only, all vehicles in beta appear to be 10x smaller.

 

In my opinion, Rocket looks better, but only after the wheel arches are re-positioned like Cheetah's.

The vehicle size in final versions were reduced but not that much noticable. Early 2000s saw the removal of front plates in vehicles around the US, which is why they removed the front plates I guess. The window grills were better detailed and mostly the poly quality of models were improved to make it seem less.cartoonish.

Both cars looks almost at the same size, excluding their obvious differences.

Lots of reference to those in old promos, IGN Screenshots and pre-release content. There have been modifications based off Beta Vehicles as well.

Jinx beat me to it.

No it's not. They are from vehicles.dff from the Android port. Not blaming you though, since the discussion regarding them were kept only in the GTA3D thread.

No, look for it if you want.
