The ocelot lynx of supers? Well, probably even worse.

Im glad I like the looks, and it being called Taipan makes it a must buy. Tai-Pan by James Clavell is one of my favorite books and is the basis of the back story of both my characters. Speed makes no difference to me as Ive got other supers to do the racing bit for me.

Honestly this car is pretty bad. It's like two different people designed this car. It's like someone who actually knows how to make nice cars worked on the front of the thing then clocked out for the day. And somebody who was too busy playing the Burnout Paradise remaster came in and finished up the rear. And plus there is no need for the weird offset license plate. Probably going to end up selling this once the Tezeract or the Tyrant gets dripfed.

Two things I believe it will happen with this car in a future patch:

 

-The license plate will be moved to the center and get smaller;

 

-The flag bug will be corrected, I hope this guy gets the highest top speed of the class since it's meant to be a "monument of speed".

 

Not worth to buy right now though, I will wait for a discount.

 

 

EDIT: f*ck it, I bought it once I heard we can see dials of the speedometer!

Mathematically the car is not capable of having a higher top speed than the Entity XXR, assuming that both cars are in the same condition

 

The Entity XXR has a slightly stronger engine and a slightly lower drag coefficient

Harsh on the Lynx. At least the Lynx is beautiful.

Hector tavares, to be completely honest with you, I laughed a little when you said this car looked bad so you'll wait for the tezeract. I thought the x80 was ugly when we got it, the tezeract almost makes the X80 look good.

Can you remove the license plate or place it anywhere else?

Broughy claims the car tops out at 126.3 mph. At least its "monument to speed" description thing isn't completely bogus.

 

That being said, I do hope that it losing speed on bumps gets fixed, but I doubt that will happen. Still love driving it in freeroam regardless.

It's sad this is so slow. In real life the Venom F5 is one of the fastest super cars in the world.

The license plate is the only thing that bothers me about the visuals of this car, but other than that I absolutely like it. Too bad it's performance is stunted to hell. :/

Not just me or my friends that think this thing is slow? The look of the thing has grown on me, but it can't hold a candle to my beloved XA21. Sorry, R*...You F*cked up.

Black and yellow plate kinda hides it in the rear.Should have had a remove plate option, since this is GTA and your character obviously does care about traffic laws.

That's a very Australian name for an American super car. A Taipan is a snake native to the Australasia region and the word is an Aboriginal one.

I guess they must've run out of venomous American snakes to name it after.

In the game code, the Taipan has the highest top speed of any land vehicle at '170.2500'.

I'm still trying to figure out how this is a "Cheval".

 

Cheval is based on Holden. this is not a Holden at all

Rockstar just puts cars wherever they like, they probably read people asking for more Chevals without understanding that people were really asking for more Holdens. Just like the Autarch. Hopefully they add a real Holden to Cheval sometime this year.

But it can only reach that top speed in an alternate universe where R* devs are competent

God damn I was curious how it looked considering the in game website pics don't show much, but this thing is ugly as hell :(

I think it's a good looking car with at least some interest at the rear rather than the super-generic looking XXR... But now they've added an engine resistance stat to these new cars they're essentially worthless for any kind of racing. Remains to be seen what the point of that is, if it'll be patched etc.

Well the name taipan and the "monument of speed" description give me hope that rockstar will unrockstar this cars performance. Although the taipan viper isn't American like this cars inspiration, it's a very dangerous snake due to a lack of antivenom. This car should (considering it's real world inspiration) be very dangerous to encounter on a track due to very minimal competition.

The new Taipan is a very nice looking car... unfortunately that is the only thing it has going for it. It does not handle very well, it does not have good acceleration and it has a low top speed for the current supercars class. Once again Rockstar is putting out poorly designed content in DLC's because they are more interested in Shark Card sales than in providing the players with good quality content. Too bad we have not gotten a good supercar in a long, long time... the Taipan and the XXR cannot accelerate fast enough, do not have enough top speed or do not have great handling, handicapping them for racing.... oh, but you can add color to the stock wheels on the Taipan via the iFruit app... lol.

Well, that's a kick in the mouth. It's like they make this car the fastest car, but some f*cking bozo can't code it right, so they release the car in a broken state and go , "Eh, these idiots will buy it anyway, we can fix later lol"

 

Like what the hell is with this update? Get your sh*t together Rockstar.
