Enus Stafford Discussion & Appreciation Thread

...so it turns out this car might wind up being the most Grand Theft Auto car in a long time - lemme explain:

 

If it's indeed based primarily around the '50s/'60s Silver Clouds, then it's basically the main car featured in Ron Howard's 1977 car chase caper, ...Grand Theft Auto. :blink:

 

2017-02-13_22-27-24-640x972.jpg

 

 

snap1827.6.jpg

 

 

And it doesn't stop there - it goes without saying that Scarface had a huge influence on the series (not just big chunks of Vice City, but also a lot of the radio tracks in GTA III), and ...well, if anyone fancies painting their Stafford Ice White:

(granted, that's actually a near-identical Bentley S with a Rolls-Royce grille shoved on it for the movie, but that's just typical GTA 'smoosh two cars together to make a new off-brand one' car design in real life, isn't it? ;))

Even that Grand Theft Auto has a Comet Classic.

Probably unlikely, if it's the saloon, since the drophead was based on the coupé version:

Would be nice to have both, though - that particular one above belonged to Sammy Davis Jr.!  :cool:


 

Speaking of famous Silver Cloud owners, and considering it's already confirmed to have decal options, and this is a nighclub/entertainment-themed update, I wonder if they'll have an option based on Elton John's:

(what is it with older British pop singers and yellow Rollers with psychedelic paintjobs? :pp)

Oh, don't go doing this to me, @Commander S! You're killing me! So much potential in this car, so much history! I've had to go and play Saints Row 2 just for the Baron, to tide me over until After Hours! Even if I prefer the double lamps over the quad design, I'm beginning to lose my standards to madness. Rolls-Royce madness.

 

Continuing from my previous "traditionalist" comment, I'll have to add that my tastes don't necessarily reject the sorts of flair that John Lennon and Elton John had applied to their cars, and I'm certainly happy to have "barn find"-style rusty liveries. Still, I'll be happy to see whatever else people do, whether it's got a big blower sticking through the hood or has shakotan pipes fanning out the back! Though you won't see me sporting such things (atleast on my main character)...

(sauce!)

 

Looks like the Silver Cloud/Phantom V/Bentley S mash-up we were hoping for - and it even comes with stock whitewalls, ferchrissakes! :O

 

 

Website description:

 

"Stafford drivers have a reputation for plowing through more pedestrians than any other consumer demographic. But don't trust the statistics: if you look closely, you'll see that the poor and disadvantaged are throwing themselves into the path of its cast iron radiator grille, in healthy competition for the honor of being mown down by something this magnificent."

 

Class = Sedans (thank f***...!)

Decal names:

 

Flames
Blue Flames
Radials
Baroque
Neoclassical
Gothic Decor
Rusty Enus
Oh Enus!
For Queen and Country
Make Peace, Not War

 

 

Guessing that "For Queen and Country" is a Shaguar-style Union Jack look (like the similar one for the Swinger) - the flame ones might be like the Elton John look, or ...a hint that you can give this more of a hot rod look?

 

"Make Peace, Not War" definitely sounds like John Lennon's Phantom - which raises the question as to what "Oh, Enus!" will look like... And "Baroque/Neoclassical" sound intriguing/promising...

 

 

As for model details so far, the unique seats look great, and the grille definitely looks more Bentley S, right down to the wings on top (wonder if there are different options, like on the Roosevelt Valor - ?):

 

Di2f7EhXoAEbeJ3.jpg

 

 

Plus those stock rims look more like they're based on Benny's "Smoothie" ones, and not the LSC "Classic Rod" rims:

Fw7wAQC.png mFUbaHb.png

 

 

From where I'm sitting, this is definitely looking like one of the highlights of the update - it's overtaken the Swinger as the 'must-buy' car in this (IMO severely underwhelming) update, in fact! :)

Cool - hmm, so none of them are the Lennon one. That's interesting - as is the fact that the Union Jack one is a loose 'paint splatter' one. I suspect people are going to be miffed if the Swinger doesn't have clean flag decals...

 

That two-tone separation is really nice, though - I was wondering if it'd stop at the hood, and not the sides, but it's still nice that there's the option. Wonder what the rest of the customisation is like...

 

 

And it shouldn't be too long before we can get it, considering next week's Guest List unlockables include the "Oh, Enus!" decals. :)

Rusty livery. A fine addition to my collection.

On the one hand, I'm really miffed that the Swinger is another Jester Classic, IMO (fudged details, amateurish sculpt, that sort of thing). There goes the car I was looking forward to the most out of this whole thing... :(

 

On the other, that eliminates the question I had: "if I put the Swinger in my final 'European classics' garage slot, then where will I put the Stafford?" - it's a non-issue, now, since the Stafford gets it by default. :p

 

And ...wow. This is a good-looking model - the chrome detailing really makes me think this is the same person wot did the excellent job on the Fagaloa:

 

 

 

 

(and that's a really tasty, photorealistic pic - @JoonasPRKL certainly knows how to make a good car look even better... :blush:)

After my personal disappointment with the final Swinger, this totally made up for it!! The design is so much better than I could’ve imagined, and a great element of variety for the game

Again, I don't think they did f*** it up...

 

Bit like the Fagaloa - the only complaint with that car is that ...it's a really rather obscure choice instead of so many more popular wishlist candidates. And unlike the Fagaloa, a Silver Cloud is world-renowned automotive icon. ;)

 

Granted, it could handle like the Faction on a trampoline, or R* did something really stupid like only letting it drive in reverse - but even then, it'd still be worth having just to look at. :)

agree,but they could have f*cked it up by adding the flags. 

all of a sudden a nice relaxing car becomes annoying to drive.

...the more I look at this thing, the more it looks like a Mafia II car - as in, they took the two real-life things based on the same platform, split the difference between the two, and then just changed the odd shape here and there (for instance, the little vents under the headlights are circular instead of oblong, and the front fender angles have been straightened out a little), and then ...kept it almost exactly as is. :O

 

Can't wait to see the dashboard, and the customisation - but even just the stock version, with the two-tone option, it's fantastic. :)

 

I totally get that, what with your average online gamer asshole these days, companies are loathe to give out individual names of devs - but if I could sidestep Shark cards, and give a bottle of wine or something directly to the folks who do work like this to say thanks, I would!

I figured the patchwork-looking floral one is Rockstar's take on the design. I've had a hard time coming up with custom paint jobs for these cars, though, so if I can be proven wrong, that's great.

 

Aside from that, this thing just looks more and more beautiful. The engine noise is a little loud n' angry, but gosh, it's so pretty. I'm so bummed it's dripfeed, I really really really wanted to roll up to my new Studio Los Santos nightclub in my new Stafford. But I can wait, because the treat is oh so sweet.
