nice pics now how can you prove that its not a gt-40 since the car has a on piece window and not the vent window and roll down window.....R* dont make em look exact i know

<!--SF--><!--SF-->You just finished the argument for me right there.

Thank you very much.

the only thing on it that does resemble the new gt is the side lovere is recessed

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.

<!--EF--><!--EF-->

as said by someone ealier the game is based in 92.......find another car on the game that was built after 92....you wont......and i pointed out the things it has like a gt40 the smaller hood fender mounted mirrors and another one i spotted square headlights.....one peice windows which was available on the 40....however it does have the lover cut deeper in the side......and the bumper is different from either car.......and those wheels were not on either the new or the old

The Fortune looks awfully like a 2 dr Tempo/Topaz...I own a 92 Topaz XR5 2-dr with a 3.0 V6 and a 5-spd and I love it (hence the name)

 

But when I look at the taillights it does look like a Thunderbird

My Dad had a Tempo AWD, but it was a 4 cylinder, and because of the weight of the AWD components, it was even slower than a normal Tempo. He ended up trading it off for that reason.

In both this game and GTA III, my fav has been the Banshee. But I don't understand why people call it a Viper. There's hardly anything Viper-like about it. It's a Shelby 427 Cobra.

 

That's my story and I'm sticking with it.

 

This time, the Infernus seems to have turned from a Ferrari in previous games to a really-close-for-not-licensed Acura/Honda NSX.

 

The Bullet is somewhat akin to the GT-40, but I think it's closer to some versions of the Shelby Mustangs.

 

Also, the Buffalo looks more to me like a late 70s/early 80s Mazda RX-7. Not much like a Camero.

How does the Banshee look like a Shelby Cobra over a Dodge Viper RT/10???

The side view of the Banshee looks ALOT like a Viper, except the non-functional roll-bar is black, instead of body-colored... Paint the car black and look at the sideview...

I don't see how anyone can honestly tell me there is anything "Cobra" about the Banshee myself...

 

Also, the Buffalo a Late 70's, Early 80's RX-7? This '82 says otherwise...

And... The Infernus was NEVER anything close to a Ferarri... it was more-so like a Vector M12 in GTA3, and a Lamborghini Countach in GTA:VC...

 

I'm starting to wonder if you even know what your parents drive?

Nah, man. The GTA III Banshee is definitely a Viper. Seriously. It's completely obvious. When the Viper came out, a lot of people compared it to the Shelby Cobra, but they're not very similar in the looks department.

 

Also, the Buffalo is definitely a Third Gen Camaro. You can tell by the sides and back, especially.

damn! you know your fake cars! music.gif  lol.gif

lol they are actually pretty close to real looking rockstar only changes one thing like round headlights instead of square or defferent check design in the grill i dunno why the even fool with changes at all

Nice list, however, For Vice City, the Esperanto was a 70s Wayne Kady styled Eldorado, however, if you're a Cadillac fan and owner like me, you know the other GM makes that competed were the Buick Riviera and Old Toronado. In San An, the same name car is now an Olds. Any clues? Look at the taillights? Only Seville had square rectangular lights. GM stylists are particular to keeping a car's lines continue from year to year. Making abrupt model changes, there are usually some lines or visual cues retained.

Mostly it's tricky to nail down the San An cars and trucks as they are more fantasy then licensed. There is certainly enough to suggest the listed mentions. The Buick Regal is obviously easy to spot, as is the Porsche and Testerossa but the Porsche's new top and rear aren't alot like even the Targa. The 911 has many variations but none that look like the San An version that I know of. BTW, Sofa King...are you a Tesla fan? You know the band continued under that name in the mid 1990s

dude im sorry post makes no sense to me maybeye im just tired since its 4:30 and im at work i dunno what are trying to say is wrong w/ it

 

r* makes slight changes to keep car companies off there back....but they are modeled from a real car some are almost exact even like bobcat which is and almost exact copy of 82-86 ranger with a different grill however like the buffalo the headlights are round and there is extra pillar in the back window but you can still see its a camaro....espranto is based on a 78 eldorado but they have to change sopmething to keep lawsuits down

No, the Esperanto is different then in Vice City, if you are referring to my reference/post.

Take a look at both versions...look at an Olds Toronado from the same 1970s period. There is enough visual cues to make a distinction. I checked the current Cars from the Sensational 70s hardbound that's avail at most Target stores in the US. I can't see a backside shot, but in the later 1970s the grill was changed on the Toro before it was revamped into the downsized car in 1979 along with the Eldorado and Riviera where things got even worse in keeping the identity seperate. The Eldo is the clear favorite with it's classic sharp lines. The taillamps are always kept vertical along the rear quarters. It's Toronado though, not Tornado hehe I wouldn't get too year specific, but it falls in the right range. There is also more then one of a certain type of car, as I'd swear there are two variations on a Lincoln theme. I speculated the pickup Ryder was seen with in screenshots is a Harvester International that is a bit rare these days, but I'd need to check on eBay or something to varify.

The Super GT resembles a Supra to me, a lot more than a Lotus.

No. That wouold be the Jester.

 

Even if R* had the money, the7y wouldnt get the liscences because the cars get the sh*t bashed out of them, and no carmaker wants to see that,.

Wait a moment! The game plays in 1992, right? sly.gif

 

How can there be a Dodge Viper included?

 

I thought th first Dodge Viper came out in 1995! or 1996?

 

It's way too early for that car!!!

 

Couldn't it be a kinda rounder shaped Corvette????

I put my own cars up at CarDomain, but since then one Deville never left the impound. No title so I gave up... the one after that was in much better shape but still needs a transmission. I was all for a 3rd gen Firebird but I think the Camaro version is more off then the 70s Firebird in Vice. There's some odd changes between the two, but obvious questions are raised regarding GM's early 70s coupes like the Chevelle. Most Chevys and competing GM firms kept productions based on letters to share similar assembly line part stock and fabrication. Massed production unlike the Ferraris makes it harder to pinpoint the inspiration. Luckily Ford's Mercury and Lincoln franchises didn't blur so much

I'd say also check eBay motors for a true life comparison, but I'm repeating myself. Lots of cars on auction though

I think it would be great if R* made a contract deal with the big 3 car company's to use their vehicles in the game. It would be great promotion for a top seller video game to have real car models in their game not only would the car companys benfit, but so would the gamers having actual cars to drive based of the real cars, instead of fake mock-up's. But in all reality it could cause negetive attention to the car companys. I think it would be great though

 

Yeah it's giving your company a very positive image having gangbangers shooting drive-bys outta your car models. Next of all, who of us drives like in real life? Traffic rambos like us are not a very positive reference!!!!!

 

Think about that before posting horsesh*t like that!!! sly.gif
