Rapid GT Classic Discussion

Recommended Posts

spincther

 

It's not console war, it's Euro vs US car

 

or more exactly UK vs US.

 

Well........not sure about who I want to see win...... :D

I think its a win-win for everyone.

I agree its based off the aston but it also looks mustang-ish when modded.

Either way alot of people seem to dig this car, some players have gone for the classic aston look while some go for the mustang look.

It looks close enough to a mustang that players who want it to be a mustang are happy with it.

So I think everyone wins :oD

I think the part that throws people off is its made by Dewbachee which in the GTA world is Aston Martin. That said R* pretty much did what they could to keep the UK crowd and US crowd happy. It all depends on taste and mods to really determine which direction the user wants to lean toward as far as keeping it Aston or going for a Ford look, and they certainly have enough options to help lean your car in either direction. The mustang immersion killer for me at least, is the engine note is not aggressive enough, and really starts sounding weird if you were to put a blower on it. Which is a obvious good argument point for those leaning toward the Aston side. Other than that I'm happy with it.

I mean, the fact that the Shelby GT racing stripes are a livery option is a strong indicator that the Mustang crossed SOMEBODY'S mind when this car was being designed...

Those aren't Shelby specific stripes. They are generic racing stripes that 1000000 different cars from the beginning of time have had.

 

Edit: Should make it clear I actually agree with you, I do think the designers were looking at stangs for the liveries, just saying many other cars had/have those stripes as well.

Except the mamba of course... the one car that doesn't have them and really should have done....

Layla darling, we have all the time in the world.

 

Now this is me. This is convincing me that I should set aside 800k.

 

I took so many damn pictures of this car. It's gorgeous. I'd snap it up right now too.

 

I didn't spawn it in SP before it got released because I wanted to experience it for myself. I did cheat a little when a modder was spawning cars Downtown, but I didn't get a proper chance.

 

Now that I have? Holy crap is this one of the most rewarding cars to drive in the Sports Classics class? I swear it just feels so responsive and you can some real fun with it (check out my first picture for a controlled powerslide).

 

Yeah, the sound is basically the rest of the Dewbauchee range but it's not out of place.

This car really surprised me. For a sports classic, it has an excellent top speed and acceleration. Handling at low speeds is quite controllable, or maybe that's because I'm way too used to the Mamba. I have yet to take pictures of it. Really, really liking it so far. It's convincing me to make a Dewbauchee floor on my garage.

If anyone is looking for the James Bond Living Daylights Aston Martin V8 look: Anthracite Black with Chocolate Brown Pearlescent will create that distinct "Cumberland Grey". Adding Super Mesh rims will recreate the final look of Bond's V8.

It's been a long time since I've played this game. My editor skills have gotten very rusty.

Thoughts on the car: on one hand, I'm in the camp of people that feel like this car is an Aston Martin V8 mixed with a Jensen Interceptor. On the other hand, I want a Dominator Classic in this game almost as badly as I want Ubermachts based on the E23 and E34 (because like everyone else, I want my IRL daily drivers in this game) and for the time being this is the closest substitute we have. It's not even that far fetched of a substitute compared to other examples I've seen in this game, like people substituting an AMC Pacer for a MK1 VW Golf. As for the car itself: I wish I could have the mesh grill without the headlight covers, I wish there was a black option for side skirts, I wish the classic stripe livery had side stripes like the other two, I wish the wheels weren't so thin, and I wish the front offset wasn't just slightly lower than the rear offset. Still an amazing car, though, and I plan on making another one as a proper Aston Martin.

 

The color here is #B45216 with a Dark Earth pearlescent.

Says a country that lost a war against Vietnamese farmers with outdated weapons! :lol: I Iove how this discussion has devolved to the point of of being as bad as that fake comment I made a while back about eurofaqs ruining a Murican muscle car. Seriously though the car isn't bad because it isn't some other mostly unrelated car. This is like me complaining about Coquette Classic not being a Ferrari Daytona.

I had to Hotwheels it out for a few pics. Too bad you can't make it sound as mean as you can make it look, I'd have several different ones if that were the case. I think keeping it mostly stock suits the sound better, but it's fun to fool around with anyway. Love the way it handles, it's definitely as fun to drive as my other favorites, the Dukes and Mamba.

Kind of odd question, but does anybody know what kind of sound the Turbo has? Is it like the usual one, or one with the blow-off valve sound?

Normal sound. Not one of the quiet blow off valves.

Shame, I like the sound of the blow off ones. I'll probably add it anyway, just cause it fits the theme I'm going with. :)
