The Maibatsu Penumbra Appreciation Thread

This car is a real beauty, but as others pointed out, it's just too damn weak even fully modded. Nice pics those of you who posted :)

 

Here's mine:

I really think the Penumbra and Futo need to reclassified to Compacts, they would be the Kings of Compacts and would receive more appreciation.

 

Will post a pic of mine later tonight, and yes imo I think it's a great cruiser.

Several sports cars should be moved to coupes (Fulsilade, Penumbra, etc) and in turn several coupes should be moved to sedans (all the 4 door models).

 

This would do wonders in giving life to two of the more overlooked classes.

 

The Futo? I dunno where it goes. Certainly not sports. It was never a sports car. Its a goddamned Corolla. I don't care how many weeaboos whine about their stupid cartoon.

The Penumbra is not a compact style car. A coup if nothing else.

 

Well here is mine. As seen in my sig-a-ma-jig.

The only thing that pisses me off the most about this car, is its very underpowered V6 engine that drives it.

I acquired one today, it's my new favourite cruising car. It may not be one of the fastest but it's really one of the best looking - in my opinion anyway:)

I already have my race/performance cars, so having said that, is the penumbra worth it from a cruiser/unique look/ not-so-common-white-dot-car? Bcuz R* just took away my Buffalo Mk2 and I'm thinking of adding another car that isn't all too common. Ya know like how every low rank with money has a chrome bulletproof backed super car

Like how the real one is FWD and the GTA version is RWD. The Penumbra does look sweet when slammed though

Yeah, I've only seen maybe two other people that drove it in freeroam. Kids don't desire it because they claim it's slow and they'd much rather stick to their "GO FAST LOLZ $WAG CHRADDERS LOLZ".

And that's a good thing considering that they would chrome it and put those terrible dollar rims on it.

So... yeah, take the Penumbra.

the penumbra is damn nice! the only reason I dont have one anymore is because of its speed :(
when the option to have multiple properties is here most probably will get myself another :D

debating whether or not i should get rid of mine for a better performing car and just wait 'til 2nd garages come out to get one

 

only thing keeping me from doing that is how unrare cars start to seem rare when you actually want one

It's not the fastest car out there, but it looks pretty awesome.

NoSignal666, drive around East and West Vinewood for a while, it should spawn eventually.

You can get it on the SSA website for $24,000 as well if you can't be bothered to look. :p

 

EDIT: Here's my 'clean' Penumbra'. Colour is Surf Blue metallic with Diamond Blue pearl. :)

I had one as a spot filler. Was fun, but traded it in for a PCJ 600.

This car is slow like hell but really offers a lot of possibilities to tune it: the stock look is OK, the sports look (slight modifications, one colour tone, a sensible wing) is pretty, and the racing look (roll cage, custom tyres, carbon parts, big wing, diffuser and front spoiler) is sweet too.

 

I went for the full racing look in this one, inspired by Lotus F1 team colour scheme.
