Seriously? First they name a Mitsubishi a Toyota instead of giving it an entirely new brand like they did with Progen, but they name a Nissan a Toyota despite its brand already existing?

 

Oh well. If it drives good and looks good, I won't be that mad.

Maibatsu was already a thing when the Kuruma happened.

Oh, excuse me and thank you for correcting. I don't know why I forgot Maibatsu of all things despite to listening to that Maibatsu Monstrosity ad a lot as a kid.

Might be because literally no Maibatsu vehicles added to the game, which is a shame.

We need something like a Maibatsu Penumbra Classic/Retro Custom, or a Maibatsu GTFO (based on the 3000GT/GTO) - poor Maibatsu needs more love, definitely.

Have you ever heard of the Toyota 2000GT?

Just posting here to note that this car is not in the initial update. Drip-fed along with 90% of the non-heist-specific cars, which is to be expected really.

Looks way better than I expected. If someone had told me they mixed 240Z, 2000GT and 250 GT Lusso and called it Karin I would've never dreamed that the result would look this good. Cant wait to see it in game. Also hoping that it has a custom interior like most of the cars in this update.

Uh, obviously, but I didn't ask for it to be just the rear merged with a 240Z front. I requested for the entire car by itself.

I mean, I still think that the C110 Skyline would have been the best fit for the rear, but 2000GT works well enough.

The Progen T20 and Ocelot Lynx are two notable examples of cars that look similar to what they're based on, and guess what, no "copyrights".

The reason why it works so well is because they made the 240Z portion of the car way sleeker. It even kind of looks like the early concept art of 240Z.

T20 has a different front end and the Lynx has a different rear end(I guess? I don't remember well).

 

I honestly think this blend looks great.

Lynx has different headlights, rear lights, grill, different front and rear bumbers, side vents... Etc.

Yeah, bad examples, IMO - the Lynx front looks more like a mish-mash of Ferraris and other things (depending on which bumper you use - and the stock one really doesn't look sufficiently like an F-Type), and the T20 is more Saleen S5S Raptor (which established the Saleen/McLaren thing for the Tyrus, at least...).

 

I'd put this along with the likes the Rapid GT Classic, or the Pigalle - like the RGTC, the two cars aren't from the same company, but they're still from the same country/era/niche enough to connect them thematically. And like the Pigalle, the look of the car is predominantly the one thing, and with a rear portion that still makes for a cohesive look. :)

I didn't even know about that Saleen. Atleast now I know that R* didn't just pull those headlights out of nowhere.

Bring on the first video of all those LSC options... :panic:

 

Particularly because ...there's a long wait for this one. :blink: It's the seventh hidden car on Legendary Motorsport, and there's also four on Southern San Andreas Super Autos (although the third of those - the Hustler - is confirmed as this year's version of the Festive Surprise, like the Comet last year, since it's free on Xmas day).

Hopefully it sounds good. That would be so heartbreaking if they gave it an unfitting engine tone.

Okay, so Metoxys is streaming all the unreleased car mods right now:

 

 

(not sure if they'll automatically save the stream, so might be worth a look ASAP, just in case it's not possible to watch it later!)


Verdict: customisation is like a mix between Benny's and the Rapid GT Classic in terms of depth, and with a lot of unique options. Doesn't look like it's possible to achieve a ZG look with the front grille/bumper/hood options, unfortunately (:() - but the bumpers definitely allow for a Devil Z replica (probably going to do that - partly because it'll match my Blackbird Comet, partly because I'm boring... :p), as well as making the rear look a bit more 2000GT. :)

tbh, I wish the car has C10 Skyline rear tail lights instead of Ferrari Daytona one.

To be fair the the 240Z was never a Nissan anyway, it was a Datsun.
