    The vehicles in this game look much more like real cars than previous Grand Theft Autos. I dont think there will be any problem identifying all of them eventually.

    I loved the Sentinel in GTAIII, especially the Mafia version. Good to see it back in GTA. :tup:

    The 'Huntley Sport' is very much a Range Rover Sport copy.

    I'd say it's a murcielago / zonda

    A lot of the cars are pretty much two cars put together. Another example would be the comet, which seems to have some lotus elise and porsche 911 styling.

    I don't know what it's called in the game, but another car looks like a buick gnx (or one of the other cars that look like it)

    It was in GTA VC as well, Sentinel and Sentinel XS. Dont think it was in GTA SA though.

    The Speedo is obviously a Chevy Express.

    Could the OP please categorize things better? Let's have bikes, compacts, sedans, sports, vans/suv's/trucks, and commercial vehicles or something.

    Been adding the Zombie to the bikes list, and reorganizing all lists alphabetically. That'll prevent from adding twice the same name.
    Hope you don't mind me editing your post.

    Not at all, thanks for the help.

    Would anyone find it useful to split 2 door and 4 door sedans?:confused:

    Also, the Futo is a hoot to drive!

    One car looks similar to the Buick grand national, and its not the one that looks like the old monte carlo.

    The voodoo is an unholy bastardization. It's only got the rear quarters of a 1960 Chevy, with the taillights of an olds starfire, the windshield of a '61 chevy and the front of.. something else.

    Sabre GT - That's definitely an Olds 442 and Buick GS lovechild. It even has the Olds/buick rallye wheels. that makes me happy. I love how the hoods on some say "550 CI" and the sides say "sabre turbo". I don't see turbo plumbing..

    Dukes - 1969/70 Dodge charger with the nose of a 1971. It has "daisy" wheels.

    I love the Sabre GT. Seriously. The car is made of win.

    I was thinking about this too.
    But then, do we need to keep the sports cars separated from the coupés, since all of them have 2 doors ?

    I love driving the Futo. It's a tie between the Futo and the Sabre GT for me. The Futo is everywhere in Bohan, so that's good news.

    20 Valve N/A RWD? Where do I sign? :dopey:
