Imponte Deluxo appreciation thread

I use this car for contact missions. So damn easy and it kinda makes CM's fun to do again. I even compiled a playlist with good missions to do with the car.

It's also great fun to drive around with, fully upgraded even more. I kept mine stock with an OUTATIME license plate.

I didn't think colored chrome still works. This is blue chrome.

 

Anyway, I bought one because it's nice to have a flying machine at your disposal for quick getting around.

And here's my Deluxo's theme song.

I don't understand people complaining that the Deluxo is slow. In air? It's certainly not a Lazer or a Buzzard, but on the ground? It keeps up with the pack. Plus, when you can just, y'know, fly over mountains rather than drive around them, the point-to-point time is more meaningful than speed.

 

Then again, I seem to be one of few people here who likes the ground-based handling. Mmm, heavy 80s cars...

I really like the drive handling as well. And I have all the upgrades.

 

That doesn't make it quick to get around by today's GTAO standards.

I mean, if you're pursuing someone you might lose them for a minute or two, but the Deluxo can go anywhere and sure enough they'll see the little bastard-mobile slowly hovering over the mountains towards them in due course Edited by Cutter De Blanc

Yes. I might see the bastid mememobile slowly creeping over the mountain, but he won't see me until it's too late.

the thing is though, I've been escorting a friend doing Haulage with a Deluxo, and it couldn't keep up with the Phantom custom hauling a trailer - neither in the air nor on the ground. And this was going from the Alamo Sea to the docks. Even flying in a direct line, my friend beat me there by a solid 30 seconds at least.

There aren't many non-hyper/sports cars that can keep up with the Phantom Custom.

 

I honestly and respectfully don't get how people think this is an efficient VIP vehicle. I guess it is if all ur targets are a mile away from you, but if they're across the map you might as well play VIPs with a strategy to use the entire time for that extra couple grand. Instead of doing two VIPs in nearly the same amount of time.

Phantom Custom has the speed of an average Super car, not suprised Deluxo can't keep up. Where it makes back time is not having to turn, it can travel a straight line from point a to point b

Can the Deluxo with a driver inside and 100% armor survive 1 rocket (RPG/Homing Launcher, Helicopter, Jet or Plane rocket etc)?

Nope unless you count explosive sniper/shotgun as an explosion (It takes 2 or 3 depending on where you shoot the car)

Sometimes it's a bit hit and miss though, a couple of times I've heard the homing launcher beep as a missile is launched and been too slow to react, so the rocket clips the car (i.e doesn't hit dead centre, but hits an extremity) and there is a definite explosion, but the car is not destroyed. It can't be explosive sniper or shotgun fire as I have literally watched the rocket fly towards and hit me.

Usually though, you can't survive a homing launcher hit with the Deluxo.

You shouldn't be getting hit by homing launchers in the Deluxo in the first place though, it's more than capable of evading them

I said on occasions where "I'm too slow to react". Or if you just get too close to the launcher. But yes, usually it's pretty easy to avoid them.

Deluxo is slow?

 

Man that thing is the fastest aircraft we've ever had. Nothing can kill you except orbital cannons and explosive hvy sniper ammo.

Most people are lazy and fly more than needed when traveling. This thing is more effective and fun when mixing both driving and flying.

If you purchase the weapons upgrade, are you able to cycle to and fire your one-handed weapons? I think the Nightshark is the only vehicle I know of that offers this option. I dont want to sacrifice that ability just for some homing missiles Doc Brown didnt invent.

Nah..I don't think so. Don't use it very much anymore to give a straight answer though.

Imagine taking it to benny's for sh*ts and giggles and this thing pops out.

Throw in chrome paint, multicoloured neons and dollar rims and you'd get every kid playing the game new favourite ride! Even Will.I.Am would be - ugh - impressed.

 

Isn't that what everyone else does?

No you are not. I know the Comet Safari also has this ability though, maybe the other new cars too, I dunno

I also very much enjoy driving this dude around. Literally rollin in the corners. Not as much as the Hermes but still funny.

 

Too bad it have became the to-go griefing machine. I havent even fitted weapons on mine but it seems that no one cares. Deluxos sure get a lot of "spontaneous" hate.

Make sure to upgrade it to max and you'll enjoy driving it too. It's a great drive, really. I only fly when I have to and use it as a tool for contact missions. Other than that, it's for cruisin' .

I appreciate sniping them then not letting them back in their vehicle, then headhunter blow it up again.
