Beta v0.1 - Please note that the in-game stats represent stock cars, without upgrades/mods.

This is a work-in-progress project. I am currently on vacation and I was forced to use my iPhone in order to start this thread, hence the lack of vehicles (it took me 30mins to do each vehicle below). I will be working on this thread full-time when I get back home, which will be the 5th or 6th of August. This thread will contain every single vehicle in GTA V, including Boats, Planes, Bikes e.t.c and those vehicles will be compared with their real-life equivalent(s). What you see in this thread so far below, is a taste of what it will look like in the future. A lot of work is ahead of me and a big challenge awaits, but I am ready to give this everything. I hope to have the thread complete by September/October.

zentorno is also lambo veneno mine looks like that
Lamborghini_Veneno,_Car_Zero_(profile).jpg
I didn't show the back of the zentorno/sesto elemento in the thread but they both have unique hexagons at the back, unlike the veneno. The front of the sesto elemento also looks more like the zentorno. I originally thought that the zentorno was the veneno but came to the conclusion that the zentorno looks a lot more like the sesto elemento. The sides on the veneno and sesto elemento are similar in terms of the air vents as well so the only elements you could say that were take from the veneno are the spoiler after upgrades and the sides. It's annoying for me because there are more cars like this that are a mixture of two or more real cars, I just need to make the call which car the in-game equivalent is more similar to.

But most of the cars in game are a mashup of cars in real life i.e the Sabre Turbo is based off several muscle cars.

Edit

Didn't read all of your post above, ignore this.

I know, the plan is to compare such cars with other cars that they are closest to. I think I might add an extra line to the In-Game cars' descriptions listing the other cars the vehicle is based on, although I don't think that will be necessary.

Read my comments about it above, the zentorno only contains the sides and spoiler from the veneno. The front and back are from the sesto elemento. If you use google images you will see that there are easily distinguishable hexagons on the back of the sesto elemento and the zentorno, there's are two "triangles" on the front of the zentorno and sesto elemento and the back lights on both cars are very similar.

Edit: There are many cars that are based on more than one real-life vehicle, I just choose the one it looks more like in my opinion.

You made a thread to argue? My actual real life job is automotive design. Its deff a mashup between the 2 but if you had to choose one, my vote is with the Veneno. Look at the fender line, window line, and overall base. The chassis is what makes me say Veneno, not the ascetics.

It's a thread I made for fun, I'm not arguing - you are. I said that some cars are based on more than one vehicle and the zentorno ( personal opinion ) had more features from the sesto elemento (side air vents, back lights, back unique hexagons, front, roof vents) compared to the veneno ( side paint job + vents, spoiler [after upgrades ], front lights?! ). I'm adding another line to the description of in-game cars to say what car(s) they're based on to make you content (happy).

The gta wiki doesn't compare every vehicle in the game to the real life equivelant. This thread will contain not only cars, but planes, helicopters, motorbikes, bicycles, boats, the submarine, special vehicles e.t.c No website on the internet has what I will be able to offer all on one page. It's a huge task in terms of time dedication. I need to resize images I download, upload them to be able to use them on the forums, do research e.t.c

I highly appreciate this the comparisons are very interesting. I like seeing which cars are based off of what and comparing their stats, etc. Good thread!

Do you mean the Lamborghini Huracan? Rockstar couldn't have based the Vacca on the Huracan, let me explain why. The Huracan debuted (it was shown to the public for the first time) in March 2014, during the Geneva Auto Show. Before that Lamborghini only gave us teaser videos and maybe (I can't confirm this ) a concept picture in late 2013 (around December). No one outside Lamborghini knew anything about the Huracan when GTA V was released. The Vacca has very easily distinguishable side vents from the McLaren MP4-12C and the rest of the bodywork is inspired by the Gallardo (Huracan's predecessor). Hope this helps :smile:
