'Grand Theft Auto' flying and swimming DeLorean lookalike is possibly the game's coolest car
12 Décembre 2017 - Autoblog
While everyone's list of favorite movie cars varies to some degree, it's safe to say that the "Back to the Future" DeLorean shows up on most of them, as well as James Bond's submersible Lotus Esprit.
It's no wonder as one travels through time and flies, and the other is a submarine piloted by the world's most famous fictional spy, which actually probably isn't good for a secret agent. Anyway, we digress. Actually owning a real DeLorean or Esprit can be difficult and expensive, though, so why not get the lookalikes coming to "Grand Theft Auto V Online" this week?
The car is called the Imponte Deluxo, because GTA never features officially licensed names, and it makes its debut in a big batch of content for the game called "The Doomsday Heist." Like Doc Brown's DeLorean in "Back to the Future Part II," the trailer shows a whole fleet of them taking to the skies from the highway.
Later in the trailer, we also see a squadron of vehicles clearly inspired by Bond's Lotus. That's two awesome movie cars in one pack that are fully functional and don't cost money to gas up, insure, and most notably in this case, maintain. They also should look great in your virtual garage next to a Tron-style light cycle.
This actually isn't the first time a tribute to the "Back to the Future" DeLorean has shown up in a video game. In the racing game "Burnout Paradise," the developers released a pack of movie-inspired cars, including a DeLorean lookalike. It couldn't fly like the GTA version, but it could hover, it had the movie car's extra fins and devices, and it left fiery tire tracks when hitting the boost.
