Is this really the only classic "Jaguar" we'll get? Rockstar's obsession with the 80's and 90's cars is annoying as hell

Thats a good thing imo, its taken them too f'n long to finally add some gta classic cars to this game. Hopefully they have a hermes, banshee classic, and deluxoc. Coming too.

Is this really the only classic "Jaguar" we'll get? Rockstar's obsession with the 80's and 90's cars is annoying as hell

I'm not so sure I would call it an obsession.

 

After looking at the car list again it seems as though the selection is heavily weighted toward the the pre-80s and mid 2000s to present. Its seems that only recently in the last update or two that we've gotten any new 80s or 90s cars.

 

Thats a good thing imo, its taken them too f'n long to finally add some gta classic cars to this game. Hopefully they have a hermes, banshee classic, and deluxoc. Coming too.

Well, the banshee classic would most likely be a Coquette if you're refering to its iteration in Vice City since it was based primarily on a C4 Corvette. That and the Hermes is about 3 or 4 decades older than the 80s, although I could see it coming as a stock and custom version.

 

I'm still hoping for the Deluxo though. The nostalgia is just too hard to resist.

 

On topic:

 

I'm a fan of the looks, although I'm struggling to decide where I'd want to put this one. I want to keep it with the rest of the recent 80s and 90s supercars (GP1, Tyrus, Turismo C, Infernus C, Penetrator) but my CEO floors are looking quite full. I feel like the Cheetah Classic and Torero would beat it out in a pinch.

For starters its not a Jaguar, Its a Lotus Esprit.

 

Secondly I dont see what "obsession" you are on about, there has been plenty >90s cars been added in the game.

I don't understand. Why can't they just add a normal variant without the guns? Why does everything have to be f*cking PvP related? We've already got the Weaponised Tampa.

I didn't say Jaguar, dude, I said "Jaguar" because it's labeled as one despite being a Lotus. People asked for an E-Type or any classic Jaguar, and this is the "one" Rockstar comes up with because of their diehard obsession of their nostalgia.

 

Why is it an 80's-90's obsession? It's because that's the car focus we have now; sport cars and supercars that are treated as classics despite not being that old.

 

We started with the Ruiner 2000, which is a KITT ripoff only added because the devs watched Knight Rider as kids. Later, they added the Diablo, F1, F40, Testarossa, Countach, and Esprit because they grew up to seeing these cars in car magazines and they thought they were the hottest sh*t. They only added these cars out of personal nostalgia, which can turn into an obsession if that's all you ever think about.

Perfect for escaping those pesky cops in style.

Its a bit short (ty Artie for pinpointing that), but they did a really good job with it overall.

So this is what PC graphics look like....It looks like real life...I thought it was just a myth. Sweet

 

I'm pretty sure that's a realism mod of some sort. That's not how it normally looks on PC.

There is no lotus brand analogy in game so they get spread around, ocelot being the next best thing. At least they didn't brand it coil, still kinda pissed about that one.

 

Personally I'm stoked they're adding these older cars, we've got plenty of modern space lizards and we're getting more of those too. Modern cars... they're like electric razors. Everything built after 96 is just crap ;-)

The more I see of the Ardent the more I warm to it. It's easy to ignore the guns and you can select any of your usual handheld weapons while driving if you find the aim dot a problem.

Surprisingly it can't swim at all. Engine died immediately. Dunno why they made it an armed vehicle.

And personally I'm very happy for all this :lol:

 

I'm not saying your're wrong, recently we've had all these classic cars, yes, but they also added some supers and sports at almost every dlc. And Gunrunning will bring another two super cars. Maybe they'll stop releasing classic sports for a while, we'll see. Now with also Torero, Ardent and Cheetah we've got a nice choice of classics. I'd say a must for a car game.

Isn't it obvious? The numbers are the narrower US plate textures stretched to fit the european plate dimensions. Stretched, not resized. It's like watching a movie in the wrong aspect ratio.

Yeah it's a mod, VisualV + Clean N' Natural to be exact + removal of Coronas (those little "dots of light" you see on vehicles).

Can't colour the interior on this one unfortunately.

Well, we can, but for some reason can't apply it in LSC.

 

Same goes for the liveries (all of them are same as on the MOC vehicles)

Thank you very much :D, now i'm 100% ready to buy this car and mod it like that once it is released.

BTW i chose those mods based on James May's Lotus Esprit from the Top Gear Patagonia Special, and the outcome is stunningly close to the real car.

I am going to spec mine up similar to James' but I will keep the bonnet stock with the vents and keep the stock rims as I think they look better than any of the custom ones! Closer to the Esprit SE! So excited for this car!!!

So have we seen all the available mods? Will there be weapon upgrades, cuz just machine guns is pretty worthless. Machine guns aside I've wanted a gen 2 Esprit for a long time so I'll be happy, just confused about the guns.
