WTF why do the Aston Martin lookalikes have to be so ugly.

Recommended Posts

Flūttershy

Now don't get me wrong, I think Aston Martins are good looking in real life. But the GTA V "equivalents" just look really off to me.

 

The Exemplar, like the others, looks bad from the front with the weird grille and headlights. And it has those ugly lines going around the headlights, too, making it look like a really ugly face, and the front is just too big and curved in general. At least the rest of the car is good.

Rapid GT: Let me start by saying the hardtop, non-convertible version looks okay...

 

 

rapid-gt2.jpg

 

 

But the soft top, OH GOD...

 

RapidGT-GTAV-FrontandRear.jpg

Sorry, but that's a monstrosity, especially with the top up . The other two cars are at least passable due to the nice way the back windows end, but this car is just flat in the back and the front window is not vertical enough, therefore the windows look tiny and lame due to how big the front looks. Yuk.

 

 

Let's compare the GT soft-top to the Surano so you can see how ridiculous it looks:

 

GTA-V-Dewbauchee-Rapid-GT-Roadster-front

Surano_V_Front.jpg

 

Notice how the Surano actually has an attractive frontside that doesn't look like a mentally handicap person and a good looking, nicely-sloped and realistically sized window for a soft-top? Yeah.

 

So in closing, the Aston Martin clones in this game are pretty ugly and don't really look like Aston Martins at all. And the Rapid GT convertible is possibly the fugliest car in the game.

GRINCH ASS BITCH

LOL

 

When I first saw the trailer back in November 2011, I remember seeing the Rapid GT and thinking, "wow, that car's ugly as f*ck, and the wheels only add to its nastiness."

They couldn't fail James Bond's Personal Vehicle. If they had, MI6 would have been after Rockstar.

Yeah the bonnet doesn't add much at all to the horrid front end. Like the Intruder/VE Commodore's case, they just took a sh*t all over it.

 

The surano looks better than the real life vehicle imo.

The Super GT from IV looked more like an Aston Martin. I agree with OP, the rest of the car is fine, but the front is God awful because it looks like they used (in my opinion) one of the ugliest Ferraris for inspiration (the 599 GTO).

Sorry if you like that car, no judgement, just my personal opinion.

They should bring the Super GT back.

Its not a jaguar, its similar to the maserati style.

Even down to the lines on the hood and the front grill, its bang on Maserati.

 

Thats a Granturismo btw, the lights are slightly closer to the jag on the back end but its not like they tried I dont think, just a generic back end.

 

As for the jag you were thinking about, probably this.. not sure the name but the in game car is the maserati.

Something like that... all their cars look similar, theres one that matches almost perfect Im pretty sure... that one isnt far off either if you compare it to the OP's pic

 

 

Snipped one out for a better, scaglietti is pretty close.. I recalled the name too.

"Serrano" doesnt sound very english either, sounds Italian to me lol

I could not disagree more. Yes, I wish they had a billet style grill or chromed out. However, I love the Rapid beyond words and the Exemplar gives me a semi...so I guess it is a matter of opinion.

To say that the Exemplar resembles someone who is mentally handicapped is actually a very fair assessment Op. You must have a good eye for aesthetics. It's all in the tilt of the headlights.

 

 

 

2wnn2vq.pngNotice how the Surano's tilt is near horizontal but only slightly positive, similar to the eyes of nearly all female models. The exemplars are much more positive which resembles the eyes of people with down syndrome.
