It's no shock that a country in which a man had no qualms about dressing in a canary-yellow thong would know how to produce vehicles that get you noticed. The Carbonizzare is the ultimate sports car for the millionaire who wants people to know that they're a millionaire.

But you did still change it back to both Subaru and MFG at a time when the generally accepted consensus was for Skyline, just because you personally didn't see it. Need I remind you that you referred to my carefully constructed evidence as "I'm right just because, and you're wrong", and that this is not the only time that you've blatantly ignored the evidence in favour of your own opinions.

As for anybody complaining in caps lock and exclamation marks, please just stop. Apparently we can't have a sensible discussion around here without somebody calling it a war. We're here to identify cars, so a heated debate about the identity of cars is hardly a problem.

And although I've run out of time tonight, I should be able to finally complete the Stratum stratagem tomorrow or at the weekend. I had wanted things to calm down a little before I posted it, but clearly the longer I leave this, the worse it's going to get.

I'm not making you into anything, I'm talking to you arnt you an admin ? You have the power to change it and honestly half of the people on the stratum page agreed it's a r32 so why not put it that. I find it ridiculous that this car was never stated as MFG and the stratum was considered as one. I never attacked you. I addressed you because your name is orange. The exist thing can't be used considering this and the stratum arnt real life cars

The stratum has been edited to be a 1989 skyline GTS-4 if that edit isn't accepted tycek than you prove that double standards exists, because concept wise this and the startum are the same case except the stratum is a clearer case that no one wants to understand.
Edit: just because you don't fully agree with the majority that doesn't make you right ,

Double standards my ass, but I see you're trying to be cool by making it personal. I believe that we all agree coming here that cars should be identified by their looks (which I even stated before on this very page). For me Stratum is oversized and modified Subaru Impreza Wagon and I will stand by it. Sure it has Skyline front (I am not denying that), but the rest of the car is not Skyline imo. Same goes here as I don't care if coupe was turned into convertible or sedan into wagon. This car here is not California, because it should be one. It's an Aston Martin because it looks like one. Fact that it was turned into convertible to look like California doesn't matter if 80% of the car looks nothing like it.

Did I edited it back to Aston right? I dont know if it was 2011 or 2012.
To Ferrari/Aston debate, I am on side of Aston. It is like to say that Lampadati Pigalle should be judged by its not much significant rear. It is Citroen SM, because the front end is 100% accurate and rest of the body kinda fits. If you look on the back, it is 100% Aston, and front is maybe Ferrari influenced, but that is minimum in overall look of Aston.
I would tell that this is a California few months ago, but after I saw Aston, it is Aston and that is end of the story.

Yes, the cars aren't lincensed meaning developers can modify them as they please but some people can't accept it , anyways the only way this becomes an Aston Martin Zagato is if the stratum becomes a R32 skyline

And here goes the biggest debate on IGCD - can game developers create new body styles for real cars?

The simple answer is yes, because these are not real vehicles, they are lines of code tied to a 3D model and some textures. Since these cars are not licensed, the developer is free to do whatever they want with the car, hence why we get cars like the Surano - a Mercedes SLS with Jaguar F-Type details.

Here, we are looking at an Aston Martin V12 Zagato (check all of the rear details: body shape, lights, side vents, side windows, bumper, etc.) with some Ferrari-ish details slapped on and a unique convertible roof added, before it gets pushed under the Grotti name, the equivalent of Ferrari. Like the Coil Voltic, which is a Lotus Elise implied to be a Tesla Roadster, the Grotti Carbonizzare is an Aston Martin pretending to be a Ferrari California, so should be listed as the Aston.

On a side note, I'd like to point out the double standards of our old friend Tycek, who is perfectly happy with this convertible Zagato, but still can't come to terms with a wagon Skyline (*hint, hint*).

This car will remain a Ferrari because let's not lie to each other if people can't rap their heads over a R32 skyline wagon , I can't rap my head around a convertible Zagato because they both don't EXIST (production wise). Either this and the stratum are changed or this remains a Ferrari because it's a hardtop RWD front engined grotti (Ferrari parody) aka a California

I think its a ferrari California for two main reasons:
- Its a grotti (ferrari parody)
- Its a front engine rear wheel drive hardtop convertible (aka California) with rear and front of AM.
This happened with the turismo r its basically a p1 but was put as a laferrari for its specs and badge.
spec wise the car resembles the ferrari California

I'd like to say that I agree, but the first screenshots of the Grotti Carbonizzare were released in 2012 (check the dates of the first posts in this thread). It would be very unlikely for Rockstar to have access to images of the 2015 California at such an early date.


It was probably meant to be a Ferrari California, however I think when Rockstar designed the Carbonizzare, they unknowingly made it appear like it resembled more of the V12 Zagato. Everytime I look at the back of this car, all I see is V12 Zagato.

It's a game. As you said, the Mehari is a Canis because there's no CitroŽn, but this is the same case. Who knows why they used a Zagato as main influence when this is supposed to be a Ferrari, but again, this is not about what's supposed to be, it's about what it looks like. You are looking at the tip of the iceberg, ignoring the rest of it. Yup, different front. But with the roof up, both from the rear and the sides, this screams V12 Zagato all over the place. A very simple matter.

Every Dewbauchee resembles an Aston Martin, every Pegassi resembles a Lamborghini, every Grotti resembles a Ferrari, every Vapid resembles a Ford etc.

The 'Canis Kalahari' is the only exception because there is no GTA equivalent of Citroen.

BTW Here's the front of the Zagato - en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Red_Aston_Martin_V12_Zagato_fr_IAA_2011.jpg - no similarity.

So? Are we judging the looks by the real life or virtual vehicles? I'd say it still looks more like Zagato and should stay as one.
AU Lombax

2014-05-16 06:06
Look at the *rear* shots of all the Dewbauchee vehicles (except the JB 700) then compare to the rear shot of this vehicle.

It may resemble the real-life Zagato but has no resemblance to the in-game cars that are *actually* based on Aston Martins.

Including the brand new Massacro.

Nope, because everything except the front is taken directly for Zagato.

It seems it is. The name is worth nothing, in many cases yes, but it's not a rule at all. The CitroŽn Mehari is listed as a Karin, and that doesn't make it a Toyota, among other examples.

Maybe it was supposed to be a California, but is deadly obvious that they took the main body cues off a V12 Zagato. Rear and sides are identical. This is about what the car looks like, not what is supposed to be.

For anyone claiming that the Cheetah's rear has Made For Game written all over it, just remember that the front of this bears no resemblance to the Aston Martin V12 Zagato.

2013-11-02 17:17
In any other game, somebody would've screamed "Made For Game" by now and that would be the accepted answer...

In my opinion, it should be listed as a V12 Zagato, but the front does take inspiration from various current Ferrari models.


ES J-2

2013-10-29 03:25
Only the rear lights?

The entire rear I would say. And the side (specially that vent on the fender) the A pillar...if you put the top up, is basically a Zagato with an altered front. Obviosly is was supposed to be a California, but it's mainly a Zagato, period.

2013-10-29 03:09
When given the correct set of wheels from LS Customs and a nice red paint job, this car is dead certainly a mix between a Ferrari California and an F12 the only 'Zagato' thing about it is the rear tail lights.

IMHO, this has no resemblance to Ferrari despite it's manufactured by Grotti. The closest Ferrari probably a 599 GTB Fiorano, but still not pretty much resemble this car. Overall, I see it more like a Corvette-ish with C7 headlights, and I don't see any R35 in this car.

I forgot about the rear...still R35 for me. Front (headlights, grill, DRL) side (A pillar in black, side vent) gives it away. I think the Zagato rear, as usual, is there to make the car more different (The Super GT and Turismo in GTA IV had "wrong" rears) and maybe it's branded as a Grotti for the same reason.
PL Tycek

2013-08-14 12:33
There is another problem, because this car got back taken straight from Aston Martin Zagato with only difference being 4 taillights instead of 2. So we got Aston with Nissan R-35 front and since their sides are quite similar, we got nice mashup.


ES J-2

2013-08-14 12:27
Weird. But remember, this is a game, it doesn't matter which manufacturer makes it in the game, it looks like a Nissan GT-R without any doubt, and also, no Ferrari I can think of looks like that. 100% R35 GT-R in my opinion.

hm, I think my comment is easy to missunderstand so Im going to clear this up,

I Dont, think its a GTR But, I can really see the GTR influence,
I still think its a corvette tho, but it does have a GTR windsheild, headlights and side vent, on a corvette body, and I guess we still havent seen the rear so who knows,

so yeah, I shall laugh, when I get the game and find its rear wheel drive, and V8, and hell if its named something that puns corvette, Awsome,

But it definatly, 100% has some parts fomr a GTR, on an american lookin car? odd combination all the same,

still I was over at IGTA a short while ago, they have it listed as Aston Martin Zagato, Seriusly, who aloud that to be posted?

Nope, this is pure R35 GT-R.

Various different parts of this car give it away as R*'s version of the R35.

- Side intake design on front fender

- Side window shape

- Has similar LED strips on front bumper, like all 2011+ facelift models

Only large differences are the fact that the hood slopes down up front like a TVR, and the Camaro-like rear fender shape. Everything else (that's been seen so far) is pure R35.
