LMAO, this is so a mustang after seeing the back. Europeans can wish it wasn't, but it is. A Dewbachee Mustang, get used to saying that. R* just happened to put the wrong badge on it.

you dumb americans, lol youll have the dominator, stallion and tampa as your sh!tty mustangs, this is so an aston martin v8 vantage, it has style and vinesse, and probably wont handle like it wants to kill you either, ye, ive seen them youtube videos of dumb ass mustang drivers wiping out their glorified escorts, lol, they might look good and sound good, but they'll all grunt and no go! lol

 

as most brothers do, we all talk rubbish, only a while ago me and my brother were talking hypothetically speaking if money was no issue, what dream garage would we have, (my brother would have a mustang!) so I then decided to put that in motion in gta (quite sad of me I know) and well, this car, being an aston martin v8 vantage, would complete my dream garage lol :D

Okay, let's just all remember that this is a video game. If you think it's a Stang, that's okay. If you think it's an Aston Martin Vantage, that's okay too. Buy it and customize it how you feel, no one should tell you otherwise. Let's keep it civil here guys.

Damn ppl still arguing over this car?

 

This GTA car is based on the V8 Vantage and a bit of Jensen.HOWEVER, during its time, this particular Aston Martin did have design cues that were similar to the Ford Mustang.

 

Basically, R* is directly aping the Aston which in real life was similar to the Mustang, so no one really is wrong for their interpretation of this fictional car.Hell, I've seen this Aston in real life and the comments I've heard people say is " nice muscle car" and "looks like a Mustang".

 

Lastly, and sorta off topic, Ford has been using a lot of British styling cues with its cars for quite sometime now.The Taurus looks like an Aston, the Explorer looks similar to a Range Rover, and the Lincoln Contintental looks like a more angular version of a Jaguar.

Yeah reading the thread devolve into sh*tty arguments about your opinion on what RL car the thing takes inspiration from isn't fun, I wanna see people post pics of theirs (obviously not happening yet for the most part) and talk about what they like/dislike about it etc, not sh*t like "suck it euros it's a mustang LOLOL!1" and vice versa.

This happened with the Warrener and Retinue so I'll say it again.

 

They look similar in real life so of course they'd look similar in-game.

 

The Skyline C110 looks similar to an Escort Mk. I. When the Warrener came out people commented how it looked like an Escort. Then the Retinue came out and people said it looked like a Warrener.

 

This is an Aston Martin. This is our Warrener. You'll get your Retinue in the future, in the form of a Dominator Classic. Then both parties will go home happy.

 

In regards to the mods, they're called "Sacrilege Hood" for a reason.

 

 

Plus the big block American fans will be disappointed when they hear the engine note. They know we want a Dominator Classic, just wait for when they eventually drip feed it in six million years.

 

I waited for an Escort after the Warrener came out. For three years. You can too.

...see, I was thinking of going for that metallic dark blue you see on so many DBS models - but then I remembered this, and I'm torn between the blue, and doing a homage to The Persuaders:

 

...come to think of it, considering the timing, and factoring in design/development time, who else reckons that this, rather than the Ardent (which isn't really the Bond Esprit), was added as a nod to the late Sir Roger?

 

I doubt it, Moore didn't drive Aston's in his Bond films, the V8 Vantage was Dalton's Bond car. The Ardent is totally a nod to the Moore Bond Lotus, even without the sub capabilites.

 

Wasn't talking about his Bond films - he did other things as well, yanno! :p Seems like kids these days never watched The Persuaders - smh... ;)

 

motoring_13_temp-1396179657-533802c9-620

 

 

And don't get me started on the Ardent - sure, the in-game description has a nod to the You Only Live Twice sub Esprit, but it's completely the wrong model (blend of S3 and S4, not the movie S1), and with the wrong gadgets. Good job, R* - way to pay tribute to something by swapping out every distinguishing feature... :sarcasm:

LOL. I'm American and I don't like Mustangs. But this fictional car still has Mustang design cues. It has Vantage design cues as well, which ALSO had... Mustang design cues.

Jesus tits...some you people are nuts

 

Why the nationality based hate? I'm an American, it's a V8 Vantage. It's clear as day.

 

Don't make this a war about nationalities, that's just stupid. It's a war between real car guys and people that like cars.

 

All the real car guys in this thread are calling it for what it is, a V8 Vantage.

 

The V8 Vantage does look somewhat similar to a Mustang, with the sloping fastback roof and grille design but to call it outright a Mustang is silly. It doesn't sound like a Mustang, the distinguishing features of the car ie: grille, tail-lights interior etc. are all inspired by the Vantage and a little of the Jensen. The only Mustang feature is the overall silhouette of the car. Nothing more.

In fairness (and I'm doing the cardinal sin of ruining the joke by explaining it, but I'm sensing that Poe's Law has kicked in, here!), Ravarta's last couple of posts are most likely meant as a piss-take. ;)

I asked TG_Stig to do it, haven't got a reply yet. Might try Joonas. I can't imagine they'll look anything but amazing on it.

It doesn't have a "roaring V8" sound. There are already multiple videos of it in this thread.

Shame the Cheetah Classic stocks aren't available, either - they're an almost perfect match for these:

Matters not - I'm probably going to shove some proper DBS wire rims on it, tan leather interior (or maybe even chocolate brown - oooh...!), and pop open the brandy and cigars the day it comes out... :monocle:

Mustang, Vantage, who gives a sh*t? I will own multiple copies of this, and some will look like an Aston, while some will look like a Mustang. Big whoop. You all get so heated over nothing

So, we (in majority) agree it's 90% DBS 67-72

 

 

10431900923_bfc341e732_b.jpg

 

 

with Jensen Interceptor/FF details (front, vents and so on)

 

 

Jensen%20FF%20I%20front.jpg

 

 

 

and ducktail back?

and tuning parts INSPIRED by 'Silver Slammington'?

Instead of trying tp continue a pointless argument, how about you get some pictures of the Rapid GT Classic itself? No? Ok move on to the next thread.

My original point seems to have been lost: yes, it looks like an Aston with some Jensen cues, but because of how similar the V8 Vantage looks to a Mustang, you could also tell yourself it's a Dominator Classic with the wrong badge on it. Those two designs are so close that's it's not really possible to effectively parody one without also having a resemblance to the other.

 

I like thinking of mashup type cars IRL. I can't afford a V8 Vantage, but I could afford a Mustang and some Aston restoration parts. Some badges, wire wheels, and cut out those distinctive side vents, and I bet I could confuse a lot of people with a Vantage themed Mustang.

 

Anyways, OT: I'm definitely buying this as soon as it's available. Probably will mix styles; BRG paint but some kind of muscle wheels and side exhaust.

Just can't see where there is V8 Ventage. Whole thread it is mentioned, while looks actually closer to DBS than V8 Ventage. DBS had more 'blocky' front, V8 Ventage got rounded area near headlights.

 

DBS+Jensen mix, what is from V8 Ventage?

Just asking, someone take picture and circle/mark what comes from V8 Ventage.
