Rapid GT Appreciation Thread

Recommended Posts

Giantsgiants

Ahh...the Dewbauchee Rapid GT, perhaps one of the most forgotten and underrated cars in Grand Theft Auto Online. People seem to always bash it for its notorious understeer when someone mentions this car. Because of its low popularity in the game, I thought this car really needed an appreciation thread.

 

I just bought a Rapid GT and got to use it in some races. I was actually amazed at how well it did, and I don't think it's as bad as people think it is.

 

The one feature that stood out to me the most is its durability. The Rapid GT seems to be immune to rammers and PIT maneuvers. During the races where I used the car, people in vehicles such as the Comet and Feltzer always tried to take me out. The Rapid GT wouldn't even budge, yet they were sent spinning.

 

Another plus that this car has is that it hardly slides out of control. When I was driving it, it felt nice and sturdy, planted on the ground. Obviously, the car's Achilles' heel is sharp turns due to its understeer. However, I feel that this car's handling suits my driving style, since I'm a fan of sturdy, grippy cars, and I'd take a sturdy understeering car over one that oversteers and becomes tail happy with the slightest movement of the analog stick.

 

Here's my Rapid GT sitting in my garage:

And when you slam it, it drives like the Carbonizzare. XD

Without further ado, let's see your Rapid GT's.

Ok, so I know this is an Exemplar, but it and the Rapid GT are nearly identical. Plus, if any of the two deserve an appreciation thread its the Exemplar ; ).

How can you possibly appreciate one of the worst vehicles in the game? Not only does it look like an alien, but it has the steering radius of a bus.

It's not even an opinion, it's a fact.

 

It has two extra doors, and can actually TURN.

Nothing to appreciate about a bus. Especially when it looks as bad as OP's.

That looks f*cking mint!

 

It's one of the few cars that sound good with a turbo, but I just can't get past that turning circle. :(

 

A looser rear end might help.

Not a lot of love for a car with such a great roof- and window line. Here's my gentleman ride :)

And next to it's equally beautiful, four door sports coupé, brother :)

Worst car in the game hands down but I've just dedicated a garage slot to the special olive one. Don't think I'll be driving it but it's a garage trophy, show car only.

Not the best car, by any stretch, but it's a classy thing to be sure:

Really lives up to the 'GT' part - I find it comes into its own when cruising down long stretches of highway, and it gets a chance to pick up speed (it's not great when it comes to fast acceleration, but it just keeps building speed over time, which is really rather satisfying). That, and you won't have to make any tight turns with it in the process! :p

That I have to agree to though. Tried everything I could to make it go faster, but no matter how I adjusted my driving, it always was atleast 2 seconds slower per minute in a twisty race with corners. Acceleration is very good though. And as mentioned above, it lives up to the 'GT' part. Just a cruising car, don't ever bring it to a race :D

I remember finding one in traffic (there was no better car around to grab) and quickly overcoming my hate of it, before I sold my xbox 360 a while back.

I have since added it to my to-get list for when PC arrives. Will be getting a convertible and hopefully it looks good in my trademark champagne color.

This car can blast around corners with handbrake turns and corrective steering. You can get the back end lined up with a touch of e brake and the grip lets you get traction to accelerate quickly. I prefer over steering cars personally, but in the right hands this car is no joke. Soft top looks kind of wack but when it's down the car is a beauty too.
