Welcome to the 27th week of a forum game called the Weekly Vehicle Showdown. In this game, vehicles face off against each other in a forum poll. At the end of the week, the winner is crowned. The reign is short lived however, the following week, a random vehicle will be selected
to face off against the current champion. We will keep going until we cover every vehicle in GTA V and GTA Online, and have one overall champion. In the thread feel free to
discuss the positives and negatives of each vehicle, your opinions, facts, videos, pictures, whatever you like to strengthen your argument for why the vehicle you are voting
for deserves to win, and the other does not.

 

Rules:
If you post mulitiple photos or videos of any vehicle, use spoiler tags.
Do not go off topic. Discuss only the vehicles being voted on.
Be respectful of other peoples opinions.
Do not cheat; creating multiple accounts to vote, etc.
Do not vote based on the photos in the OP.
This is not a Snapmatic competition.

Have fun!

 

 

 

Annis Elegy Retro Custom

The Reigning Champion

A legend rises from the ashes of a time

gone past. Long ago one import ruled the streets

and it has returned to redeem it's crown. One of the 

most loved cars of yesteryear exploded back onto the

scene and became an instant favorite but can it be 

the favorite this week?

Albany Hermes

Some things are timeless, but that didn't stop the greasers

in the fifties from chopping 5 inches out of the roof of the Albany Hermes.

Generations of hot rodders have had their way with the beautiful sled, 

everything from racecar to lowrider has been done with great success. A

large influx recently to San Andreas has the city streets littered with

these 5,000 lb monsters. Can air suspension make this bad boy slide right under

the champion and into the winner's circle?

 

May the best vehicle win.

Looks like the reigning champion is going on be overthrown soon enough.

Holy sh*t, has the Elegy finally found its match?

The Hermes is the new toy so it's definitely popular but with its customization, looks, and sound I feel it'll be a new King for a while.

Out of all the classics in the game, I dislike the Hermes the most. I just don't like it being in online. The Hermes is going to win anyway since everyone loves the sound of the car and customization it has to offer. However, the elegy retro has these features too (with even more customization), so this obviously is going to be a close win between the two, but none the less, the Hermes is going to win.

Yanno, until the full Doomsday Heist vehicle list got revealed, I had next to no faith that R* would ever be able to top what they did with the Elegy Retro. And good grief, it's not like it's the highest bar out there - a decent Supra-based thing, done to at least the same standard as the GT500 (right down to the glaring lack of modification options! :sigh:), and that'd easily be the best car ever added to GTAO.

 

But as it is, we're getting some of the best cars since ...maybe before GTA IV, even - including some great updates of 3D-era favourites. As much as I'll continue to rep for Team Elegy (because again, the R33 Skyline is one of my top 10 real-life cars I'd actually want to own), the likes of the Hermes, Hustler, GT500 and 190z are all worthy contenders for the crown. I mean, I broke my long-standing rule of 'no more than one of each car' for the Hermes, which is saying something... ;)


(that, and I'm spending an unhealthy amount of time looking up well-maintained Chevy Stylelines these days - damn you, R*!! :pp)

Elegy may still my fav car in game even if I had to admit that the Hermes is quite nice. BUT, i don't like the automatic suspension that completly block your car sometimes, and the fact that the hermès have no proper pedals under the foot of the driver and also no mirrors :/ (Details is important IMO.)
So Elegy is still the Street Queen for me no matter what ;)
