Ocelot Swinger Discussion & Appreciation thread

Recommended Posts

SM Provo

The Ocelot Swinger was supposed to be a myth. A few blueprints got passed around by collectors, but it just didn't seem possible: the aerodynamics were decades ahead of their time, the engineering too complex for a classic car, the bodywork so alluring that just feathering the clutch would feel like cheating on your spouse. But now, thanks to the power of assembly robotics and easily monetized nostalgia, the legend has finally hit the streets.

 

Released, price $909,000

Has quite a few of insignificant modifications including different trunk/frunk attachments, grille and engine block. Those who are like me and enjoy the game in 1st person will find a new dashboard with central speedo and tacho

It's the Swinger. Period lol. We're not getting two different classic jags from the same era.

It might be the first time we are. I doubt they'd name this thing Swinger when GTA London already had a Jug Swinger that was a clear reference to Austin Powers car

I know what the car is called (I dont understand whats so funny about that) and I didnt say there would be 2 either.

 

I said I hope the Swinger is an E-Type and not the one in the opening post.

I don't get what you're getting at? The car in the opening post is obviously the Swinger. Nothing else... And as you can see from the pictures below, obviously, it has more XJ13 and XKSS influence than E-Type. Could be more E-Type from the front but thats a given considering those other cars have E-Type ish fronts

Looks unique, but I think I'll pass. I was hoping for an E-Type, or something that's meant to be driven outside the track. If it's what I think it will be, then it most likely won't be added to my wishlist.

That being said, though, I always appreciate original looking vehicles, whether it's Raptor or Ruston, even if I have no interest in purchasing any of them personally. Diversity is very welcomed.

Figured they'd do 'E-Type + D-Type' for the Swinger - I'm guessing that the front will be more E-Type, with the rest from the XJ-13.

 

Or, considering the Fagaloa (i.e., someone at R* basing things on restomods and concept cars - most likely because they can make them look closer to those rather than the originals, and thus dodge licenses while still having things that look more photorealistic), and the apparent lack of metal trim on it, not the E-Type, but the Eagle Speedster instead:

 

original

 

 

So imagine that, but fused with the back 2/3 of this:

Hope it's just the angle, but the wheels/tires look "period incorrect"... again. Wouldn't be a first gta classic car "ruined" with too wide and too low profile tires (Stirling GT for example).

At least let the tire tread have realistic look and not that weird over simplified modern tread texture, that you get with all the custom wheels.

 

Then again, Stirling GT is supposedly based on that weird restomod replica thing, so maybe this one is based on XJ 12 recreation? They seem to have modern wheels:

d2fd322995f3fb9219955eb148175d72f1ccc53d

Why tho??? This is arcade game, it doesn't matter if "genuine" classic cars are unrealistically fast. Dear R*, you don't have to be make retro instead of vintage, just so it would "make more sense". 

 

But whatever, gonna buy it without any hesitation anyway.

Keep in mind that cars in trailers don't necessarily have the stock wheels installed.

Looking at it some more, they're almost definitely going for an E-Type/Eagle blend - the rear's a bit shorter than the XJ-13, and the front has the characteristic E-Type hood bulge.

 

(...which is hilarious, because the "power bulge" was a necessary design feature, in order for the hood to clear the engine - except, of course, the Swinger's engine is at the back, like the XJ-13... :sigh:)

Lmao at people who set themselves up for disappointment expecting an E-Type and just an E-Type. To be fair I was but imo we got something better. The XJ13 and XKSS are such unique Jaguars. Dare I say better? And that means a lot considering I value the E-Type over many classics. This thing is just so unique, obscure and special. A break away from traditional classics and doing something different to spice it up a bit and I love it.

Hope it sounds good. The real deal does. I mean obviously it wont sound like it really does, but I just want it to sound good.
