Sultan is in noway Sabaru Imperza!

Sabaru is too curved to be a sultan, also its front is angled down while Sultan's is almost flat.

To AVOID licensing problems, the Publisher (Rockstar) artists will develop "Concepts", they will not and cannot use Body Designed (specific) to any particular existing vehicle model.

 

Since the Cartoon Cars of the Game are unique to the Game(s) you can superimpose ANY and "claim" it is "based on" something real. Same with many Characters.. That is the fun thing about cartoons.
