They barely even look like it


I mean you have the same chunky and sweeping c-pillar

same quad headlight clusters at the same level as the horizontal-slatted grille

same flared wheel arches

same overall shape/dimensions

- like most/all cars in the GTA series the Esperanto/Roman's Taxi probably borrows heavily from several cars, but to say that it 'barely even looks like' the '82-83 AMC Concord? Hyperbole of the tallest order

The shape of the wheel arches are quite similar, but apart from that, I'd still say it's mostly based on a Malibu:

Not to mention that Lincoln is also too luxurious choice for a police car or a taxi.

Okay, then what do you think it is? Because it's surely not a '80 Seville.

To be honest, i can't see a Malibu here. Also, Albany is a GTA version of Cadillac

And yes, Albany is Cadillac in the GTA world, but a lot of vehicles in GTA 4 have wrong manufacturers:
The Huntley (Range Rover), the Speedo (Chevy Express), the Bobcat (Chevy C-10) are all manufactured by Vapid (Ford), the Feroci (Lexus GS) is made by Bravado (Dodge), the Ingot (Nissan Stagea) is Vulcar(Volvo), etc.

Because it doesn't matter how I look at it, I just can't see any similarity:

The way I see it, it looks like a 1982 Chevrolet Malibu with a different C-pillar, and with the taillights of a 1982 Pontiac Bonneville:

Also, Roman's Taxi and the Police Roadcruiser are based on the Esperanto, and I doubt that a Cadillac would be used as taxi or a police car.

Nope. It still looks like a Seville to me, but the name is referencing Eldorado.

Well I see your point, but Cimarron is a quite small car, and this isnt exactly what you would call "smaller than aircraft carrier".

Since it's a sedan, I'd go with the 82-87 Continental, with Mark VII windows (they used the same Fox platform, but this is a sedan) and the nose of a first generation Seville.

Nope, it's a Lincoln Mk VII, with different front and back fascias exactly like 440 Mopar wrote.

This is the (1976) Seville model i think its based in:


As you see, the front end its quite similar to the Malibu; and it has the "spirit" i thought about :p

On the other hand, i still agree with you on the fact that the rear looks like a Lincoln MkVII made into a four door, and the fact about the Pontiac taillights.

But that doesn't really make much sense does it? It's seville because you say it has the spirit of one, even though you agree not a single body panel looks like one? To be honest I'm not sure what I'd call it either, since it's a mix of 3 cars. Maybe the Pontiac since the front and rear are GM G bodies, and you see the back end most of the time. All I know it's really nothing like a Seville at all.

I don't think it's a Seville at all. The body lines and quarter window look EXACTLY like a Lincoln MkVII made into a four door.



The grill is from a 82-83 Chevy Malibu



and the taillights are from a 81/82 Pontiac Lemans or 83-86 Bonneville
