Cheval Taipan Appreciation Thread

Recommended Posts

Human-led design is a thing of the past. This is what happens when you fire your R&D department and leave a supercomputer alone with a textbook on computational fluid dynamics and some provocative anime. End result: to drive a Taipan is to put yourself at the mercy of a ruthless, inhuman dedication to pure speed and improbable curves. Be afraid.

 

Costs just short of $2 million.

Visually this thing is everything the FMJ should have been, but isn't.

Performancewise... very good top speed, absolutely disgusting downforce modifier of 1.2, traction is below average as well... so this one isn't really made for the track. It's extremely slow. Don't buy it if you want a race car.

Rockstar really loves them hypercars.

 

Can't wait to pick this one up.

 

Seems to be based primarily on the Hennessy Venom F5

Feels slow, dosn't it? Not fan of the off-centerd plate and the back end.

I wanted to sell it back as soon as i got in to LSC. Sold my bucaneer and moved my bullet to my muscles garage for the time being to be able to store this with my supers, kinda regret it.

 

I'm not a fan. The description said something about speed? Those were lies. And that plate just looks sad where it is.

 

Edit:

 

It's lucky it looks nice in the garage

I really like this car. With the black roof it's pretty amazing.

Not exactly impressed, but I wasn't expecting something like this from the update to begin with.

This car is painfully slow. Painfully. I barely beat uncustomized Nero's in a stunt race.

 

Keep that in mind before you buy it, you won't be winning any races with it. It's a very nice looking car however, looks good in the garage and on the street.

They cut and pasted the stock wheels off the XA21. And it's not even an Ocelot. What the H are they thinking these days?

The design looks so cheap, I have Zenvo ST1 vibes here, dunno why.

 

This for 1.980.000... a definite no thanks for me.

Did you realize that the SC1 has the stock wheels of the Nero Custom?

The front is just gorgeous, the back not so much. Still like the overall design of this car for the most part.

I can't be the only one loving this car in its current state... right?

 

No, seriously. For some reason I just really love this thing, and I can't even pinpoint why.
