Is it though?

I'd be more inclined to say it's made for game, since it doesn't really have that much in common with the BMW 1200 GSA Hover Ride other than the fact that they're both flying bikes.

It could also be a Fiat 124 Special

The car that Lada/ VAZ rebadged and made their own

I think it's more likely to be the Lada version, considering it's in-game description, the livery options it has (for example Adidas stripes, a vodka sponsorship, or a red star) and the manufacturer brand.

(The "Rune" brand in GTA V has 2 other vehicles, the "Zhaba" based of the Ukrainian Sherp ATV, and the "Kosatka", a Soviet cold war era submarine. Based on this it seems safe to assume that the "Rune" brand is supposed to be a mix of manufacturers from the (former) Soviet Union. If this car was supposed to be a Fiat they would've likely given it the "Lampedati" or "Grotti" brand since those are at least Italian).

Made for Game Off-Road Vehicle

Red Faction: Guerrilla (2009)

Ingame name Kuroari

The in-game name of this vehicle isn't Kuroari; Kuroari is 1 of the 3 big coorporations working on Mars in Red Faction Guerilla (Kuroari - red/white, AmRuKuo - yellow/black/brown, Colonial Transit Authority - blue/white).

Most civilian vehicles, including this one, are available in 3 different color schemes corresponding to the coorporation that owns it.

The actual in-game name of this vehicle is never explicitely mentioned, although it's called "MiniHauler" in the game files.

Unexpected vehicle for a demolition derby/banger racing game.

I wouldn't call Trail Out only a demolition derby/banger racing game personally.

I mean, it indeed has demo derby game modes, demo derby arenas, and some banger racing-like tracks; but it also has various more open tracks through city centers or mountains which don't fit in with the "banger racing" idea at all.
Those tracks are more like something you'd find in a crash-based racing game like Burnout or Asphalt; and those games also have plenty of expensive high-end cars.

Dodge W-Series

Grand Theft Auto V (2013)
Interestingly enough when it's upgraded with Heavy Armor Plating ( the entire front end ahead of the cab gets replaced with a completely different one.

Not sure what vehicle that replacement front end comes from (maybe it's just a custom made part not based of anything in particular), but it doesn't look the Dodge W-series the stock/Light Armor/Medium Armor version is based on at least.

Same thing goes for Nightmare Sasquatch and Future Shock Sasquatch too of course.

Toyota Coaster maybe?

Or otherwise probably some Chinese brand I've never heard of, considering it's used in the "Southern China" levels in game.
Chevrolet Camaro

FlatOut: Ultimate Carnage (2008)
The shape of the rear sides, rear window, C-pillar, door shape, and front bumper shape (except for the headlights of course) look much more like a 2005-2013 Chevrolet Corvette in my opinion; so I'd say that it's inspired by both the Camaro and the Corvette.

Strangely none of these details are that way on the Splitter; that one does seem to be exclusively inspired by the 1982-1992 Camaro, which is rather strange, since they're supposed to be race class/derby class versions of the same car.

Chevrolet El Camino

FlatOut: Ultimate Carnage (2008)
Really dislike the re-design this thing got in Flatout Ultimate Carnage compared to Flatout 2.

In FO2 it really looked like a racing car (which it should, considering it's in race class), but now in FOUC it just looks like a fairly normal El Camino with a small number written on the side (which looks more at home in street class instead).

[quote=Burn Rubber]What the hell is a petrol sponge? O.o And yes, I'm a tree hugger. :p

[quote=Briggs & Stratton]This "sponge" is used to prevent air pockets in the fuel. These air pockets are caused by equipment vibrations and can eventually lead to a condition called vaporlock. When the engine is vaporlocked, it will not be able to start.

I'd think it's more meant as a funny term for "car with a high fuel consumption" (as in, it "sucks up" a lot of petrol, similar to how a sponge sucks op a lot of water), considering this plate is on a big V8-powered muscle car.

Renault LeCar

I have done some research and found that the LeCar you guys talk about is FWD.However this one here is RWD so it must be for sure a Renault 5 Turbo.

The Chili is FWD though, just like the LeCar.

The only difference is that the LeCar is front-engine front-wheel-drive (like literally every other FWD car in real life), whereas the Chili is rear-engine front-wheel-drive (which was only done once in real life, on a concept car in the 1930's). But regardless of the nonsensical engine setup it's still FWD in-game.

Just Cause 1 doesn't have dynamic dirt on vehicles as far as I know, or is that exclusive to the Xbox version?

LAZ-699 probably

Probably that indeed, especially since the driver's side door, canvas sunscreen above the front window, and curtains at the side windows which most real-life LAZ-699s (at least the ones I found on google images) appear to have are also available as modification options for it in-game.

Most of the Soviet buses also have some modification options like round instead of square headlights (or the other way around), a driver's side door, alternate window frames, an alternate grille, an alternate steering wheel/dashboard, etc.

I assume those parts are from a (pre)facelifted/modernized version of it, these don't look like "custom" parts to me at least, so the production years might not be accurate.
I don't know enough about USSR buses to say that for sure though.

Chevrolet Corvette Z06

FlatOut 2 (2006)
Appears to be a "normal" version of the Nucleon:, although some details such as the grille shape appear to have been changed at a later point in development.

The rear fascia is also completely different, but lore-wise that could be explained as having been done when the jet engine was installed.

Interestingly the interior is just a recolored version of the Caddy Fat Cat's interior, with the only other change being the monster faces on the speedometer

The first game definitely had the greatest selection of classic cars by a mile ^^

Probably because it was originally planned to take place in the 1970's, and it was only decided later to change that to current day (well, 2006 current day :P)

Not entirely true, there was also a rally car based of the Vaz-2105 in 1978, 7 years before this one.
Race Car Dragster Top Fuel

Carmageddon (1997)
Despite not being stealworthy, it doesn't re-use the Red Eagle's interior (like all other non-stealworthy cars do); instead it re-uses the "normal" Annihilator's interior.

I have uploaded an interior screenshot of it nonetheless, maybe it's just meant to have the same interior as the "normal" Annihilator considering they're both top fuel dragsters.

On the left door of the car, it says, NATO Rules. According to Wikipedia...

The North Atlantic Treaty Organization, also called the North Atlantic Alliance, is an intergovernmental military alliance based on the North Atlantic Treaty which was signed on 4 April 1949.

Well that made no sense.

The mechanic who repairs/modifies your cars in story mode is called Nato, I think it's more likely that this graffiti is a reference to the in-game character than that it's a reference to the real-world military alliance :P

Thanks! I've added it now.

How do you add cars to this list?

I noticed that the "Rocket RX" (Hoonicorn Ford Mustang) vehicle added as Tournament season 5 reward isn't listed here, but when I press the "+" button at the top of the webpage there's only an option to add a game, not to add a car to an already-listed game.

here's a picture from the front of the car:

and here's the rear:

(I just made this account, I've been reading stuff on this website for quite some time but I only now just made an account, so that's why I don't know how adding a car to the list works).
