Do you know these popular GTA-V cars ACTUALLY exist in real life? [PICTURES]
Here are five real-life hypercars that resemble the most famous GTA-V cars!
Grand Theft Auto (GTA) started as a basic 2D game but has now become a global phenomenon. The video game is regarded as the biggest money-making franchise in the entire gaming industry. People are in love with GTA because it allows them to explore the world, engage in action, and drive the most impressive cars.
The GTA-V offers players a wide selection of vehicles to choose from. However, what makes these cars interesting is the fact that these uncanny hypercars exist in real life as well.
Here are five real-life hypercars that resemble the most famous GTA-V cars:
1. Annis S80 RR:
The Annis S80RR is one of the fastest cars in the GTA-V. It features an aggressive design and a low-slung body, which makes it perfect for high-speed police chases.
The Nissan R90C resembles the Annis S80RR. The former is a Group-C race car built with a 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged V8 petrol engine developed by Nismo that makes 789 horsepower and 784 newton-meters of torque. The vehicle has won multiple championships in various circuits around the world.
2. Lampadati Tigon:
The Lampadati Tigon is all about looks with its smooth lines, stance, and sensual silhouette. Players of the GTA-V often pick this car for a fantastic driving experience.
The Lampadati Tigon shares an unmistakable resemblance with the De Tomaso P72. The latter is an Italian supercar built by De Tomaso and was first seen in the flesh at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in 2019. The vehicle features a mid-engine layout, but it borrows the 5.0-liter Coyote V8 engine from the current-gen Ford Mustang GT. As per the automaker, the vehicle can go from a standstill to 100 km/hr in around 2 seconds and can hit maximum speeds of up to 355 km/hr. Moreover, the car has a 6-speed manual transmission, making it a gearhead’s dream.
3. Truffade Thrax:
The Truffade Thrax is known as one of the meanest and the most impactful cars in the entire game. Many players believe that this vehicle is a love child of the Bugatti Divo and the Bugatti Chiron.
The Bugatti Divo looks a lot like the Truffade Thrax. The former is a special limited production vehicle which has only 40 manufactured units available worldwide. Each unit of the vehicle costs over $6 million. To buy the Bugatti Divo, you have to be a prior owner of the Bugatti Chiron, which itself is a million-dollar-plus car.
4. Progen Tyrus:
The Progen Tyrus is also known as the most desired speed demon of the GTA-V. The car might be flawed in many ways in terms of the functionality of its design, but players around the world still love it.
The real-world doppelganger of the Progen Tyrus is the Mclaren F1 GTR Longtail sportscar. The latter vehicle features a 6.0-liter naturally aspirated V12 petrol engine. According to experts, the race car engine has been heavily modified to increase horsepower, torque and to withstand the severe abuse of long endurance races.
5. Principe Deveste Eight:
The Principe Deveste Eight is GTA-V’s craziest looking car. Its exterior resembles a spaceship, which makes it the most exciting vehicle of the game.
The Principe Deveste Eight is the exact look-alike of the Devel Sixteen manufactured by the Dubai-based startup Devel Motors, a bespoke hypercar manufacturer. The Devel sixteen was introduced at the Dubai Auto-Show in 2017. As per the automaker, there are three variants of the car – 2 for road use and one for track use. According to reports, the car is still a work in progress; the engineers are trying to make the car safe to drive.
