Vapid GB200 Appreciation Thread

Recommended Posts

Vapid GB200 (Legendary Motorsport)

 

This car is based on the Ford RS200 which achieved its legendary status from the infamous Group B rally circut. I don't see any other possible sources of inspiration, but there are some differences from the the actual car, notably the front and rear bumpers. Other than that, show some love!

 

The GB200 is an icon of that golden age of sports car design: a mid-engine, four-wheel drive rocket built with the power of a modern supercar and the handling, brakes and safety features of an angry dog. You can play it cool all you like: no matter how many times you take it over 100, the moment the turbo kicks in will have you clenching so hard you won't know if that was an ecstatic climax or a messy follow-through.

 

Price: $940,000

The RS200 is my favorite rally car or all time, and probably my all time favorite overall. Pretty psyched! Edited by SILENCOM

That's funny; I just bought this car on Forza, and now am buying it on GTA.

This car handles like a bloody dream.

IDK buy or not. Owners of this car, is it better rally car than Safari? That vehicle looks like it could beat Safari.

it drives weird, it looks like it has so much downforce that it actually cannot go fast, safari is definitely faster/better from my POV

It's very fast and responsive, but it's also way too light. The slightest bumps will send the thing airborne.

I drove this on maze bank accent and it was one of the most awkward experiences ever, it's actually so hard to control.

ah this is so beautiful ! the RS200 beeing one of the very very few Fords that I really like ! It has a bit of a MKII Impreza in front though ....

this is one of the most fun cars to drive actually ! and it´s very good offroad ! but the main problem of this car is its curbs ´behaviour , the suspensions seem too "hard" for my taste (could it be because i lowered it ? ) ,the car "hops" too much in the fast corner for example .... plus it oversteers from time to time ( due to its short wheel base ) ... so my beloved comet safari would still be my car-to-go in the Rallye races ...

pity that some tuning conbinations aren´t possible with this one ( like having BOTH the Roll bar in primary color AND the front headlights Option -they don´t work BTW which is a shame- ) EDIT : well there is an option to choose between rollbar in primary or secondary , forgot about that , my bad ....

but still , this is just too much fun !

this is mine for now , I love this thing :

My favourite of the DLC no doubt, the details on the engine block and the turbo right after the left intake makes it one of the most well made rockstar vehicles untill today

I keep telling myself that I've got too many classic rally cars, but I really do need to make room for this thing in a garage.

It's a bit late in the day for me to care much but the RS200 is one of my favourite cars and one I was hoping they'd put in although it didn't seem likely, so I guess I'll have to dust off the disc to give it a spin. Such a cool looking car.

I like this thing so far. It's nippy and quite fun to throw around, handles well and responds to input in a timely manner.

I wish the Tropos had handled like this, as I like the Stratos infinitely more than the RS200, but c'est la vie.

Wound up going with a classic look that I'll likely change a few times before being satisfied.

It's got plenty of interesting mod options and a very nice variety of liveries.

Well, as an update to what I assumed before, yeah, the fogs are for sure broken. When the intake inserts are capped, high beams don't function at all, and when all lights on the car save for the mounted set are covered, the car produces no forward light.

 

The lights really irk me about this car, but otherwise, it's a joy. It handles like it wants to hurt you, and it gets its tail up even easier than I do.
