So if the GP1 is the F1, what's the Tyrus? Just the longtail?

Pretty much stomached buying the Tyrus just so I had every Progen.. Didn't look right not having it with the others.. Still never driving it, it'll just sit and rot.

(I'd actually be interested to know how R* handles that side of things - do they have to run things by car companies to see what they can get away with? Or is it more that the design and legal teams have to take an educated guess, and hope for the best - ?)

I think it's safe to assume R* doesn't contact manufacturers because as long as they keep one or two things different from their real life counterparts, you know China style, it's technically legal i assume.

 

I doubt any manufacturer would be open minded enough to willingly let R* use ( parody or not ) their cars in a game where you can comit mass shootings, run over people and whatnot in said cars. They are scared of the potential image their brand would get.

 

For example when you know how tight Ferrari ass is when it comes to let their cars be depicted in any games, we wouldn't even have a single Grotti if R* had asked them.

You need to remember that GTA is a parody, so everything in the game is their take on what already exists. If they started getting licences for everything they'd not be able to take the piss as they'd be sued into oblivion.

I have to admit that the rear has grown on me a bit, it's no Tyrus rear but it'll do :p Besides when I enjoy the rest of the car this much there's no point in being negative about the part I have to look at the most.

Man, that rear, I cannot believe it.

It's the only car over 1M that I skipped since 2013, without any remorse.

Nah, he's right.

I like the car, but the rear is odd. I wouldn't say it's ugly, just very odd.

Thankfully, it looks fine when your driving.

My own GP1, bought yesterday :D

No regrets so far, I love the sound it makes.

I think it looks nice personally, and I am loving the Retro cars being introduced :) it reminds me of posters on my wall as I was growing up,

It is very nice to drive unfortunately not competitive in a racing situation but it is really nice to cruse in.

My only small gripe would be that It should be in the top 3 when it comes to Top Speed (the real life inspiration hits 240mph+). I think it should handle as it does but be as fast as the 811.

And I wish it was a 3 seat car but that I can understand it could be hard to do that so do not mind.

But I love this car and the 2 upcoming classics (even if they ruin the sports classic class even more) for there looks which I believe Rstar have nailed

I have based mine on the LM version, I shall post a pic or something soon.

Its baffling to me how many people complain about the rear end of the gp1. Go on this crazy new thing called google and look up the f1. When R* takes liberties with real cars, they bitch. When R* give u a nearly direct copy, they just keep on bitching. How about this, if u don't like it, don't buy it.

I've said this before but I don't have a problem with people voicing their criticisms of a vehicle that they still like or enjoy in one way or another, what I don't care for is sh*t posts what's sole purpose is to let everyone else know how "sh*tty" they think something is. For example coming in and saying the car is so ugly that you're glad you saved 1.3 million from not buying it. Like ok, if that's your perspective then it comes off as if you never intended to buy the thing anyway outside of just wanting to have the "new hotness" so why even come in here and share that? Take that sh*t to the vehicle B&M thread, it's what it's there for.

 

My main disappointment with the GP1 rear is just that I like the rear of the Tyrus so much more that it's a bit of a bummer the car I like and want to drive more looks a bit less appealing from behind. In the end though it's not a big deal and I still thoroughly enjoy driving it around.

 

In fact I think it's quickly taking the top super spot away from the GTB custom for me (which I know some on here would find ridiculous given how much hate the GTB seems to get around here lol.)

It looks like that because the photo was taken as it landed from a bit of a jump. Kept it like that as it looks more unique.

I love the way this car drives and looks. Plus the engine noise is like a detuned Tyrus as it should be.

 

No problem with the rear, yeah it's boxy but as said before R* could never do a like for like copy as they would get in all sorts of trouble. Seen a lot of F1's in my life and this is a worthy facsimile with some altered details. It will stay in my garage permanently.

 

Fun facts you may or may not know, the original car used tail lights from a bus and wing mirrors the same as a VW Corrado.

The thing with car design is that it only takes a couple of subtle tweaks to make the difference between good looking and unattractive. Just because it looks similar to the F1 in the rear doesn't mean that it automatically looks good, it's an overly simplistic view to assume that it does.

The rear of the GP1 looked a bit odd to me at first but it's started to grow on me. After all it still emulates the real car just with the details shuffled around. I'll admit I do think it's a shame the horizontal vents, original exhaust placement, and full length rear grill from the real F1 couldn't be accommodated, though I guess that's just the price to be paid for unlicensed cars.

 

I'm just happy that the rest of the car is essentially a carbon copy of the real one, even brazenly replicating and labeling the F1 LM spec parts as "LM wing," "LM bumper," "LM exhaust," etc. R* is really pushing the boundaries on what they can get away with it seems, though you won't find me complaining about my favorite car being well catered to.

 

I'm a fan of the Tyrus too and I think the mix of F1 LT and S7 wasn't a bad choice, especially with that S7 rear you mentioned. I think I prefer the GP1 over it though as it more accurately replicates the F1's features.

Bought one today... Took it for a spin straight out of the box (mine came in orange, of course). LOVE the sound. Not loving the under-steer at the moment. Was in the process of upgrading it (keeping stock orange paint and most all stock cosmetic upgrades) when I got disconnected due to blah blah blah message kicked out to SP. I was so pissed.

 

Well anyways, completely stock, the sound is amazeballs. I hope upgrading the car doesn't downgrade the sound.

No, but depending on your preference, turbo is only thing that gets added to the sound.

Some cars just add an audible whine. A few have the obnoxious BOV sound (I'm looking at you, Kuruma) while others still have different [less obnoxious] BOV sound.
