First manufactured in 1960, the Stinger quickly became a car synonymous with the hard-living Vinewood playboys of the silver screen. Literally hundreds of impressionable young starlets got drunkenly deflowered against their will on the hood of this beauty and then later ended up with a face through the windshield. $1 million buys you more than just a used car without power steering - it buys you a piece of history. The interior still reeks of bourbon and cigarettes

Really looks more like an Intermeccanica Italia than anything else. Certainly doesn't look like a Ferrari/ Jaguar hybrid. It's just been dumped in Grotti with other Ferrari because there's no place else to put it. In the same way the CitroŽn SM is dumped in Lampadati despite only sharing the engine with other Maserati and the CitroŽn Mťhari was dumped in Canis without sharing one single bolt with Jeep.

The main body and rear are based off the 1961 Ferrari 250 GT, the car made famous in Ferris Bueller's Day Off.

Only the front. The rear and overall body are totally different.

On the Legendary Motorsports website in-game, it's mentioned that this car first went into production in 1960 (the year the 250 GT Spyder California SWB was introduced).

Has a 3.0L engine (matches the displacement of the 250 GTO).

Also, the $1,000,000 in-game price tag matches how much a 250 GTO would've sold for at auction...in 1986.

Doesn't look anything like a Dino to me, and this is clearly front-engined.

Agreed.

Makes more sense for the Grotti brand, since it's the GTA version of Ferrari.

Maybe a little 250 GT California in the back?

I think this is more of a Ferrari Dino 246 GTS with headlights from the Dino 206 SP.

Whatever this is, I think it's safe to say that it's not a 33 Stradale. :p

The Stinger hasn't made a return yet, however the Perennial went from an old Chevrolet station wagon to a Honda Odyssey based MPV.

Who knows? Either way, it's definitely a car I want in my garage! :love:

Perhaps, but there have been many cars that have done a complete 180 in design (Manana, Stinger, Infernus, Vincent, Super GT, etc.)

Nope, Windsor was a parody of Jaguar E-type. This is a new car.

If you brighten this image you will see that this car is actually front engined convertible,which is totally oposite to Alfa 33 Stradale.
I think that main inspiration for it came from Intermeccanica Italia mycarquest.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/09/Italia.jpg
(italian V8 sports car which was made for USA market during late 1960s and 70s), but headlights do resemble Alfa.

That is GORGEOUS. I can't wait for this to be released, so I can cruise down the boulevards in this.

OH MY GOD!
I just literally shit myself. They are bringing badass classics to GTA.
And I don't know why but It looks like a mix of the 240Z Datsun between the Alfa 33 Stradale.
I know that they look alike but it's a mix between them so It's gonna be awesome, can't wait to see the rear!
