Elegy Retro Custom Appreciation Thread

Best one so far. Kinda sad the R34 didn't happen, but a lot of people were begging for the R32

 

Actually, one of the fender kits evokes a very R34 vibe. From the rear 3/4 view, when you combine the roofline with those fenders, the R34 all but jumps out at you.

 

 

I see more like R33 than R32, in fact can't find any R32 hints there.

 

Front speaks of 33 (R32 had orange turning lights), so tail lights. Got R34 vibe (1 taillight bigger), but in 95% is R33

Overal mix of skylines, but mostly 33, with very little 34 touch.

I think that i might change a thing or two later. I also consider to get a second one for my main character and one for my second character.

Very nice. Don't care how it performs, I'm getting one tonight.

No need to worry about performance, it drives amazingly well. Absolutely demolished several races in a row in public race lobbies with it.

Good thing u fellas warned about losing all the upgrades. Now it makes sense to get a completely new elegy and do the makeover at Benny's

Love it, except for the recycled Elegy sound. I wonder why they gave it the Sultan RS startup sound, but didn't bother giving it a proper engine sound.

I've already seen around 10 R34s, 6 R33s, and like 50 R32s. (This is in LA btw)

Yeah, there are a few illegal ones around. If people didn't ever do illegal things, then this game probably wouldn't exist. Not everyone wants to take the risk when they can wait a few years. Hence the demand.

Three of the R34s I've seen had British Columbia plates. The rest had Japanese, Florida or California plates.

Florida ones come from Black Ops, who have a terrible reputation. They've been raided multiple times and the customers have been tracked down and their cars have been taken. It's quite sad. It also makes this Elegy quite fitting for an illicit import/export dlc though, that's for sure.

(Trying to get a bit on topic)

The mods for it here go above and beyond what Forza and NFS have, so it's a nice variation. In dying to get off work so I can build one. Probably gonna do a Wangan Midnight themed R33 type of look. I'm loving the perfect blend of the 3 generations. The roof and pillars of the 32 work really well with the rounded lines abd slightly bloated look of a 33. The tail lights are such a nice mix of 32 lenses with the housing shape around it like the 34 without the seams overlapping onto the quarter panel. Even though the general body shape is closer to 33/34, I somehow am really drawn to how they left the quarters sticking out a hair farther than the rear bumper like the 32.

 

Only one more hour or so till I can get in on the action.

definitely my new favorite Benny Car so far ! kudos to R* for making this looks soooo close to the real life R33-R34 !

I wanted the "veteran" livery , just not too much stickers which is perfect , but then it has this "vintage " style and that doesn t go well with the car unfortunately, that´s a pity !

but hey ,it looks sooo awesome without livery !

^Call Pegasus while the garage door is open, and drive in when the select-a-vehicle menu shows up. Then simply hang up.

Works for the LSC as well.

I had no interest in this car at first, I mean it's alright. Then I saw some customization, and because it's new I'll be buying it. It'll never driven most likely, but eh. It's something nice I suppose.

Open up your phone or the start menu as you roll in. The door will stay open but it wont trigger the animation that puts you in "mod shop mode".

So basically Benny can magically turn vehicles into completely different generations now?

Most likely Benny just trashed the RH8 and brought the retro Elegy with the 900k you gave him.

 

Proobably just takes the VIN-number of the new one to make the retro "legal"
