Favorite car in GTA1/London (1969 and 1961)?

Recommended Posts

Jeansowaty

Okay guys, what's your fave car? :D

In GTA1, my favorite is the Challenger. It's easy to steer with it and it's good. Other honorable mentions are the Cossie and LeBonham, they are nice too.

 

For GTA London 1969 my faves are the Crapi, and the Locust. They are pretty fast and light, excellent for timed missions, imo. GTAL 1961 also brang the Fab to the game, another favorite of mine.

I'm afraid this topic won't have many posters.

 

My favourite cars in GTA 1 are Challenger in Liberty City, Flamer in San Andreas and LeBonham in Vice City.

 

In London 1969 my favourites are Reno 17TL and S-Cart, especially the modified version. In London 1961 these spots are taken by Voxel Concept and Safari.

-Porka Turbo

-F-19

In London:

 

-Jug Swinger (because Shaguar baby, yeah!)

It's only in LC. All cities got different Porsches, so Liberty City had Penetrator (looking like old 356 with its top up and Porka Turbo). San Andreas got Penetrator (looking like 911 and Speeder (looking like Porsche 356 Speedster) and Vice City had Penetrator from SA and Porka (which was Penetrator from LC with its top down).

It's based off the Ford Capri, which was the European equivalent of the Mustang.

Wasn't there also a Roadster thingy in San Andreas? Dunno what car that was based on tho.

If you mean the car named Roadster that was based very likely on Mazda MX-5. In terms of body shape Speeder was a roadster.

Well this is an interesting thread, about something people generally don't talk about.

All cities - Mundano (my family's car!)

LC - Counthash

SA - Monster Bug

VC - F-19

London 1961 - Fab (can't go wrong with old Thunderbirds)

London 1969 - Crapi again

I love Capris... there's even one parked in my neighborhood.

Nevermind that, lets just keep up with the discussion :^:. I started also liking the Itali GTO lately too, probably because its a Miura, and I like Miuras :D

Red fast devil is what I used to call it in 90's :D Once I got GTA 1 I realized that it reminds me of the game on Pegasus/NES. I feel driving in GTA 1 quite similar to Micro Machines. And regarding cars in GTA 1. How could I forget about Beast GTS :) One of my favourites in LC.

What are the fastest vehicles in GTA 1? For GTA 2 we have many lists (it's easy to measure, or check from files), but I didn't find any for GTA 1.

 

My guess would be that Superbike is the fastest but is it? How about the sporty cars?

 

Also does the radio channel that starts playing when you enter a car depend on the car type or is it random? I think Beast GTS often plays some fast techno which is another reason why I like that car. :p

Beast GTS - I'm in love with the first-gen GTS Viper. I have been since a child. This car - the Beast GTS - has a very enjoyable driving style similar to that of the bulldog, but with better top speed.

 

Bulldog - Starting car for the game. I don't know what car this is suppose to be. GTA Wikia says DB7 but it looks like something less-exotic to me. It slides around corners and has decent acceleration.

 

Locust - I have a fondness for the Lotus/Caterham seven cars. They're lightweight, agile, and a pure pleasure to drive. This car is no different in the game.

 

Myni - It's a Morris Minor aka "Mini Cooper". FF. Small. Agile. The perfect vehicle for narrow alleyways and tight roads that the map has.

I don't want to check them all one by one.

Thanks. :P But what is the formula to calculate the top speed based on these properties? And there are other properties too, such as the "max speed" field in the Specs tab. Does it always set the max speed?

I love the Limos in GTA. They handle like a dream, auto-align themselves with the road, and have a great top speed. Pity they blow up kinda easily.
