Ugh. More of this "this car is definitely 100% based on this real car".

 

No. No car in any GTA has been a 1:1 exact replica, for obvious reasons. What any particular GTA car takes its inspiration from is up to each player's interpretation. You can believe what you want to believe, but you can't say what someone else sees isn't true. You can provide evidence to explain why you recognize what you do, but none of it is proof of anything. I'm going to show what I have seen, but none of it proves anything.

 

The Dukes obviously does take cues from the Charger. There's little or no dispute that the hide-away headlights, Coke-bottle shape with long overhangs, and the "Dukes" name are nods to the Charger. I I think the B-pillars and rear window are especially Charger-esque.

 

In addition to that, I personally appreciate lots of Pontiac cues. Firstly, the brand. Imponte, who also makes the Phoenix and Ruiner, both reminiscent of Firebird / Trans Am.

 

100px-Imponte-GTAIV-logo.pngpontiac-logo-250.jpg

 

 

Secondly, the huge chromed steel front bumper wraps around the entire grille, and has a large vertical point split down the centre. This was a common design cue in many Pontics in the late sixties. Firebird/Trans Am, Catalina/Bonneville/Parisienne, and Tempest/Le Mans/GTO all had huge bumpers surrounding their grilles. Pontiac kept the vertically separated grille until the brand's end. The Charger did also have a vertical split in '69, though it wasn't as prominent nor was it steel. Pontiacs of this era also had soft-pointed corners front & rear, similar to the Dukes.

 

Even the placement of the Imponte emblems is similar to what Pontiac did.

Lastly, one of the optional wings reminds me of the '69 GTO Judge's piece:

Everyone sees different things. Someone might see some resemblance to Buick, or AMC, or Ford, or even Kia for all I know.

Pretty much the only thing that makes the Duke that makes it a charger is its name.

I attempted to recreate the 68 charger from counts customs.

 

Here is the car from the show

And here is how mine turned out.

I couldn't bring myself to use chrome as the secondary color, so i went with brushed black steel. I think it suits it better.

I think not

I have since changed it to brushed steel. Felt the brushed black steel was too dark. I still don't like the chrome on it. If the skirt and fenders weren't set to be secondary colors, i'd probably go with chrome.

Yup. Chrome, delete the custom tires, front lip and rollcage, maybe a lighter purple or pearlescent (not sure since I don't know the paint) and it would be one bad machine.

I call mine The Miracle.

Here's its theme song:

Why Giants, why the Dukes :cry:.

 

Edit: Yeah, I'd call it the miracle as well if it was able to make it down the street without being turned into scrap metal.
