I always thought this was supposed to be a VW New Beetle

never crossed my mind that the new Beetle wasn't around back then (although I remember seeing it as the concept 'New Polo' at the 1994 Birmingham motor show), but I assumed it was a New Beetle, perhaps the RSi. Obvious now that it is a Cossie Escort because of the bonnet vents, tea tray and wide arches, but it stil seems too rounded.

The developers of the GTA games were actually based in Scotland. Maybe their designers liked the Escort Cosworth so much (it was one of the greatest hot-hatchbacks of the 90s, and it was also successful as a rally car, Jeremy Clarkson was a big fan) they decided to put into the game, even though it was never available in the US (and thus was probably never street legal), which is where the cities in GTA are located. Perhaps in the game it is a gray import, I don't think you see it driving around in traffic, in Liberty City one is hidden in a courtyard, so it's like a secret car.

Car worth selling. 12k if you have 1x multiplier, I sold one few minutes ago for 84k, since I was looking forward to finally get out of Liberty City, that after phone missions I did not do any car missions.

It can't be 2000 since the game was released in 1997

Plus AFAIK there's no such thing as Vapid in GTA 1. :/

I don't get why people are trying to put every GTA Ford-based car under the Vapid brand even if that brand didn't existed until GTA IV. This is just leading to crapload of fake informations on IGCD or Wikias

It's not just GTA. People on the MC wiki also tried to call the MC2 cars by the Vapid and Dewbauche names along with the others. When they never were called that in the game... :/

That's really dumb, MC doesn't take place in the same universe (since there are real cities).

It's what happens when your a publisher/developer and you make a big deal about one series but not about another.

And the funniest thing is that the games were made by other teams so they are 0% related.

Incorrect info. Wikis in a nutshell.

I was actually just browsing through the Midnight Club II page and was giving some of the playable cars a GTA manufacturer. For instance, the 1971 Bestia now becomes the 1971 Imponte Bestia. It'll get kinda confusing though, especially since there was a Grotti Bestia added in a GTA Online update... maybe there'll be a Maibatsu Bestia added as well! :lol:

Why? It doesn't make any sense to give manufacturer names to cars in GTA before GTA IV (not talking about a few exceptions of cars which appeared in commercials). Giving manufacturer names to cars in other Rockstar games is even more pointless.
