In Game Description:

Oversized, oversexed, overpowered and understeered, this is the car that joined cheap contraception and masturbatory guitar solos to form the unholy trinity of Baby Boom Americana. But before you reach for your vintage jacket and the sepia filter on your Snapmatic, be warned: this old dog has torn the limbs off braver hipsters than you...

 

 

The Vapid Ellie is a muscle class car that is set to be added to GTA Online on 3/27/2018. This vehicle

takes heavy inspiration from 1965-1970 Ford and Shelby Mustangs. Specifically the star movie car "Eleanor"

from the movie "Gone in 60 Seconds".

PSA: All vehicles released with the SSASSS update have specific "flags" in their coding that reduces vehicle performance dramatically. This is

considered a bug by the community, and these vehicles are not suitable for racing purposes in any capacity until a change is made via game update.

Exactly what I was afraid of happened, they added the ugliest mustang to ever grace the screen. I pray it has some kind of mods to make it look less like Eleanor and more like a stock mustang.

And it's boxy AF again.

 

God damn, they've already ruined the V8 Vantage with this boxy crap.

I wouldn't say it's the "ugliest", but I too have had problem's with the looks of that (2000) Eleanor.

R* didn't name it Dominator Classic because a muscle car shouldn't be in Classic class. Logic? Yes and no.

I'm more than fine with the name they gave it. Ellie is clearly a nod to Eleanor.

Hopefully this'll be an Infernus Classic/Torero situation and in a couple of updates we'll get a real Dominator Classic based on a '69 boss 302 or something like that.

I think in this case it's ok, but R* seems to have a problem with classic cars vs Classic class (e.g. Infernus Classic and now Jester Classic).

That's a good man Ben, all class. Hope Mach takes up your offer.

Tampa has modifications to make it look like that.

Thanks dude. I really hope he takes me up on it. When I saw Foxy post the name Ellie I rushed here to start making the topic even before he released the photo. I knew exactly what it was going to be lol. I had to make sure I was first so I could give it to Mach. Just like Happy Hunter had to be the topic starter for the Hunter appreciation thread its only right Mach does this one.

What? Lol

Thats not even my opinion either. Thats a fact.

Joonas can you please make one look like Eleanor from Gone In 60 Seconds?

 

I want to add it to the original post.

 

Brushed aluminum with a double black striped livery (if there is a livery like that) should be close.

I was talking about the Tampa ya dingaling. Also, this thing looks even worse ingame than in the preview screenshots. That is one flat front end lol.

Ah I gotcha lol

 

Yeah the front end of this car is the worst part. They made it too boxy.

 

Still sexy though

Joonas was kind enough to do one for me that looks similar to Eleanor from gone in 60 seconds.

 

Added it to the top post.

Im probably going to do mine in stone silver or something similar come to think of it. Brushed aluminum is a bit too light for the Eleanor color.

Okay the rear is nice.

Ye, but the front needed more curves.

 

I would like to see a comparison with Rapid GT Classic.

I don’t like the design at all, shame they probably won’t add a proper Mustang until months now :(

This should have had the Rapid GT Classic's front and kept the rear as is. Still like the boxiness though nothing against it.
