I did the exact same, but before this discount dropped.

 

Now I get the feeling that every Hellfire will have red headlights. Won't be as rare as I hoped lol

Any Caprice's I thought those were supposed to 7 liter monsters?

They have 355 hp 6.0 liter engines. And that's only some of them. I mean still a pretty stout car though. Don't see too many of them, they are usually undercover cars around here.

A couple towns by me have them, I hardly ever see an undercover Caprice thought considering their police exclusive lol. Like Explorers and Crown Vics might be dead giveaways but how many retired Caprices are on the road that you tell yourself, "That might not be a cop."

Lol yeah. I think they do look pretty similar to the SS though.

No, but you are a fool for not buying it earlier to get some cool cars with nitros.

That's an odd choice for an undercover vehicle, you'd think they pick something more inconspicuous, not a vehicle sold exclusively to the cops in the US.

 

 

To be honest, I'm surprised Police Departments fell for GM's pitch. They sold the civilian version of the current PPV Caprice here about 12 years ago & it just couldn't compete with the Chrysler 300. The Chrysler was more reliable (lol), better built (lol again) & the SRT was considerably more powerful than the SS. So they eventually dropped both the Caprice and the Lumina out of the line up.

 

Aside from a Royal one down the street, I rarely see them anymore, they all died.

It's a pretty generic car though. The fact that it is somewhat rare makes it an even better one actually. Everyone knows and expects the Charger/Tahoe/Explorer unmarked cars. People slow down when they even see civilian ones (I know I do lol). But wouldn't think twice about a Caprice. Looks like any other car on the road.

You guys have Chrysler 300 police cars? That's awesome lol.

YELLOW ZOOMER WITH DRONE

For being a car based on the Challenger Demon, the lack of a Demon hood scoop is odd, to say the least:

And yeah, I know, copyright is a thing and all that, but R* could pull a GP1 in this case, I guess.

Indeed it is, typical mid2000s generic GM design.

Haha they use Corollas for that exact purpose, can't get any more generic than a Corolla lol.

Oh no no. I was referring to the civilian stuff. They used to sell a civilian Caprice here (same Australian body the PPV is based on), but the 300 ate its lunch and whipped it butt lol.

What is a Corolla gonna catch if the person speeds away? Lol. It's like the Focuses and Sonics they have here that serve as meter maids because they won't catch anything that doesn't have a lawnmower engine. 

 

I always thought the Australian Caprice was a better car than I guess it was. They looked nice I thought and I wondered why GM didn't retail them when they brought them here. 

The only newer Caprice I've seen were Border Patrol liveried ones and even then I've maybe seen five. Border Patrol usually use Tahoes and F150s with an occasional Expedition.

If i see a cop behind me I just end up making a turn at a random street even if it takes me farther from my destination. Been pulled over about 12 times for crappy reasons even though I know its because of my car, usually if i suspect its a undercover I check the plate. If it says CA Exempt with only numbers then its a done deal. We still have the crown vics here along with the Chargers/Explorers

They used a lwb version with a lazy ass 6 speed auto, so it was slower than the explorer awds. I think the pontiac g8s were imported at around the same time, and you could get those with bigger engines and a manual.

The Corollas work in tandem with other units up ahead, usually a Mercedes E-class.

 

If the Mercedes have to come and get you, you're spending the night in the can. They take speeding very seriously here.

The SS models had the Sleeper vibe. Being the only game in town made them very popular here back in the day ... Until the SRTs came along.

They just weren't good & they had a lot of problems.

Yep, the G8 was cool. Especially the GXP with the LS3 V8. They only built 1,829 GXPs. #RIPPontiac

 

The Chevy SS that followed was fugly.

They are quite big cars with horrible handling. I miss the 90s Chevy Caprice C91 with the LT1 5.7L V8s. They sold horribly and discontinued in 1996.

They were discontinued in 2017. Also they were only imported to the US for government use like police force.

The whole B body platform was discontinued to make room for more profitable Suburbans and Tahoes to be built at GM's Arlington plant. They didn't sell that poorly but surely would've sold better had the design not been dubbed an "upside down bathtub". After the GM B bodies were discontinued the Ford Panther trio sales shot up so it not like at that time there wasn't still a market for full size rear wheel drive sedans.

 

Half on topic this is the only other drip feed car i plan on buying more than one of. But I need to sell off some cars before then as my garages are completely full.

That definitely sounds like an improvement on some others.. nice faaaat idle sound, loud, still seems to be lacking some bass on the move though.

Bruh, i scare all strip liveries are f*cked with a plastic details, because they decided to UV map them for some reason. Nevertheless i fixed that issue via PC Magic to take a pics, so if anyone's interested, grab it here (mod, PC only ofc).

Not at all.

 

The real fools here are R* themselves for locking such a requested feature like colored headlights behind Arena War nonsense.

 

Like, it would have hurted them so much to put them in LSC,Benny's, theOffice Garage, the MOC, the Avenger and the Terrorbyte too?
