Real Car Names

Recommended Posts

Credit to nekkidhillbilly for the original list

 

Last edited: November 6, 2007 (New Bikes, Planes, other vehicles added)

 

The list is of cars and the years they were actively in production, if known.

UPDATE: Some of the cars, if not most, now have sample pictures. If you want to compare the real vehicles to the GTA ones, I suggest going to a site like http://www.gtavehicles.com/ so you can compare the pictures. I couldn't do this for all vehicles because my expertise is in cars, not commercial trucks, motorcycles or planes. I didn't have much time, but scraped together what I could. Enjoy the NEW and IMPROVED GTA: San Andreas: Real Car Names thread. If there's something that is incorrect or you want to despite, I suggest PMing me because there is no way I can get through all of the 30 pages or so.

The front end looks nothing like a Stealth. Trust me, I own a 94 RT and a 92 ES. The tail lights kinda remind me of the RT tail lights, but the rest of the car is way off. Maybe we could just call it an avenger?

I said the front end looks different didn't I? The side looks relatively similar, the back is very similar... Atleast to my '92 RT (minus the rear spoiler)

 

An Avenger? It looks alot less like an Avenger than it does a Stealth... The Avenger is a much narrower looking car.

 

And what I said about the front end looking a bit like a '94-'96 Stealths, was that when you pressed the nitrous and were travelling fast enough to where the screen is blurry... if you press L2 and R2, the front bumper seems to take on the typical front bumper from Dodge cars...

The Virgo is based off of the 1986 Lincoln Town Car. Give or take two doors.

The Buffalo is DEFINITELY a 3rd gen Camaro. The headlights are the only part that doesn't resemble a Camaro.

The slamvan (the lowrider right?) is a dodge, look at the grill. The tanker is a ford aeromax. The two other semis (the linerunner and roadtrain) are both kenworths. The tank is an M1A1 Abrams used in the Gulf War, afterall this game is just after the gulf war in 1991. R* just put wheels on it instead of caterpillar treads because they always seemed to have a problem with that since the tank in Liberty City.

slamvan is a gmc 4 lights and the split in the grill

i always thought of the sentinal as a bit smaller than that, like a BMW 5 series, maybe even a 3 series.

i did too but look at the body on the sentienal of sa the 850i was the only car that had the rolled off like that

The Sentinel isn't an 850i. The BMW 8 Series only came in coupe form and looks way different, IMO.

 

Here is a pic of a '94 BMW 850i.

The Alpha doesn't look like a Stealth or 3000GT.

I stand corrected. I looked at it closer yesterday, and it is a Dodge Stealth. It's a 91-93.

the elegy is a nissan skyline r32 remember the setting was in 92

Doesn't mean a thing.

 

For example, the Bullit is a Ford GT not ''GT40''.

 

And yes, the Buffalo is a Mustang.

Flash = 1992-95 Honda Civic Hatchback?

Merit = 1992-95 Mazda 929???

Virgo = late 70's Ford Thunderbird???

Vincent = late 80's and 90's Buick LeSabre???

 

Stretch looks like a Lincoln Towncar, IMO

The Ford GT was ment to be simillar to the GT40 in appearance but not identical.

The Bullit is not meant to be a classic car. The GT40 is from the 60's and 70's.

Don't bother with pictures because I have the strategy guide.

 

I guess you could do one thing though, get a pic of the Bullit and compare it with a

Ford GT and a GT40. Just to prove that you have jack knowledge of cars.

the only thing on it that does resemble the new gt is the side lovere is recessed......and my point is the cars are based on a real car so how can you say its not based on a gt40 since the gt itselfs is based on a gt40

I'm only going to say this once more...

The Bullit is not based on a car from the 60's and 70's. It's based on the present.

Look at the chassis, look at the lines and the wheels and the headlamps.

 

Your'e blind.
