The cars of Grand Theft Auto V


The first Grand Theft Auto V trailer hit the web yesterday. Understandably, the internet went a bit mental over it.

Now, because GTA has the word 'Auto' in the title, we're pretty sure cars will play a major role in the new game. So we've gone through the trailer to look at the cars on offer and what their real world inspiration might be. We've got the trailer as well, 'cos it's a bit good.

Aston/Alfa Romeo Hybrid




This specimen appears to have the rear lights/boot spoiler of an Aston Martin V8 Vantage but the pipes from a Ferrari California. BUT, the front/roofline looks a touch Alfa Spider-ish. The wheels add to its Italian pretentions, too. It's also nice to see proper retractable roof mechanisms in GTA.

The A-Team Van?


Well, this is a van. A big, well painted van. Presumably the inspiration for this bad boy is something big and GM-ish. We're hoping for an A-Team paint job option somewhere along the way.

Mk IV Vauxhall Astra Convertible


Is it wrong to think this looks like a Mk IV Vauxhall Astra Convertible? 'Cos it really does.

Pontiac Trans Am


Now, the driver of this car is clearly just asking those scantily clad ladies for directions, but we think they're happy to help because of his Pontiac Trans Am-esque muscle car.

Audi R8 Spyder


Yes, it's a touch blurry (this is the best of all the screen grabs we tried) but on the move it has more than a hint of Audi R8 Spyder about it.

Now, watch the trailer below and have a look at the cars in action. We think you'll agree - it looks absolutely stunning.
