Never liked Banshees. They had shiat handling.

SO 170k for a Viper that has been worked over by West Coast Customs? No thanks...

BOGT was a solid game. Although short. It did a good job of capturing some San Andreas silliness. Coulda done without the gay twink missions, but still. Overall is was a better game than GTA4.

Never played GTA myself, but I'm a fan of the Saints Row games.  Favorite car was the Raycaster, which was...surprise, also a Viper-based fictional hybrid. (combo of Viper, Corvette, and SLR McLaren)

Vipers are just awesome looking cars.  It's tough to go wrong making a car based on something that looks that nice.

Saint's Row is surprisingly great. I've only played 3 and 4, but I loved 3 while I liked 4 but it was too short. As I understand, it was originally supposed to be DLC for 3.  They both had a better soundtrack than GTA5, which focused almost entirely on the urban audience and featured DJ's far inferior to the glorious radio of San Andreas.

You'd have to be smoking crack to buy this car. It doesn't even come with a stick to prop the hood up. You have to use an old broom.


BoGT was the most fun I had in GTA IV, V captured some of the magic of San Andreas. But why can't you pop a wheelie with a quad?

170k for a 2006 Viper with a paint job and $100 in badges?

Nope.

The Turismo was the best performance vehicle in GTA4 IMO it was excellent for drifting and had good speed.

As for GTAV I liked a much slower vehicle, I can't remember the name in game but it was basically a modern charger.  With full mods it was tough as hell and while it didn't handle well you could smash through any obstacle and it had enough speed to outpace the cops and find a hiding spot. It's a weird choice but I found that it worked really well and once you learned to get the biatch to turn it wasn't that bad.

So they put some different stickers on it and now want $170K?

/some moran will probably buy it

The top is on it. Banshees never have tops, I don't think.

What he's got is Specter from Twisted Metal.

Mentalpatient87: The top is on it. Banshees never have tops, I don't think.


They have with and without.  In the first few months you could only purchase one with tops in game, now I think you can get one without.

That was my first thought.

I immediately knew it was a Viper that has some shiat done to it. Why not pick a more unique looking vehicle?


$170K is a bad joke.

I love both of them. SR3 is a GTA-like roll of insanity, and SR4 is Matrix + GTA. It's weird as hell (dildo bat and the Rectifier, anyone?) but that's its charm. SR4 is shorter (finished the main game and all non-DLC missions in about 25 hours), but still quality. The Raycaster is fun, the Bootlegger is a great jump car, and I just like the Gunslinger.

I don't think the whole of SR4 was supposed to be DLC for 3, just the missions that comprise Enter the Dominatrix. How the Saints Save Christmas is bizarre, but awesome.

I wish you could add custom music for SR4, though- there are a few from SR3 I'd like to bring over, and a few of my own to add.

In a perfect worl their show should have driven them out of business not gotten them more business.  Their fit and finish is horrible.

What's wrong with that center stack? It looks like an unfinished cardboard cutout designed by a 12 year old who was trying to remember what an actual center stack looked like. I get it, carbon fiber is cool and all, but at least put chrome/aluminum rings around the screen and gauges or something.

BOGT was definitely the better of the GTA IV spinoffs..  GTA IV while much longer drug on soooooooo long because after 3-4 missions in I just started skipping all the cut scenes because the story was already derailed and retarded.

Yup, I would expect a better job done on the interior of a 170k car

Isn't the Viper the one with the logo that looks like Daffy Duck upside down?

Yes...yes it is...

Because the car it's supposed to be replicating, the Banshee, is a Viper.  They just didn't want to pay Dodge for the rights to actually call it a Viper in the game.

/ agree that 170k is way too much though

I don't get you. However, I'm in a tiny minority, because according to Microsoft only 28% of Xbox Live players got the achievement for finishing GTA IV's story.

Interesting. I wonder what percentage never finished enough missions to make it out of Broker before they loaded up the multiplayer, and never looked back.

The Banshee in GTA 3 was a good mix of handling and speed. I don't know what they did to the ones in GTA 5, they cant turn worth shiat

I didn't know much about the one in 3, but the ones in San Andreas and 4 blew donkey balls.

Meh. Come back when you make the Attrazione or the Temptress from Saints Row 3 and 4.

I'll save the $170,000
