Description of Event: 

XDBX Anniversary

Cheetah Event

4 years ago, a Crew was born. It was formed with the intention of creating a small gaming community for some people to get together and game without the worry of grievers, or squeakers. It has grown into a far greater achievement than anyone could have imagined.  For a really good description of who, and what we are, and even how we became, you should take the time to read XDBX HistoryWe will be running a selection of the best jobs that XDBX has created. I'll be pulling these jobs from this thread: Iconic XDBX Races on PS3 as well as some favorites from PS4.

The ONLY color allowed for this Event is Crew Blue

Grotti Cheetah

Grotti is a luxury land and sea vehicle manufacturer featured in the Grand Theft Auto series. The company is based on Italian luxury car manufacturer Ferrari. The company's name is presumably a play on the word "grotty", meaning "rotten" or "putrid". Grotti's logo also caricatures Ferrari's, as in GTA San Andreas the galloping horse is replaced with a rabbit/hare. In GTA IV, instead of a galloping horse, the logo depicts a horse sitting down. In GTA V, the logo is changed into a tilted Maltese cross on the center of the emblem. One vehicle, the Brioso R/A, is based on the Fiat, as Fiat once owned Ferrari.

"Forget the last 50 years of technological advancement and hark back to the golden age of driving before seatbelts, DUI laws, anti-lock brakes and emasculating GPS systems with nagging female voices. A prototype sports car manufactured by Grotti in the early 1970s, this marvel of Italian engineering will over-compensate for just about anything. Just like the Italians."

―Legendary Motorsport description.

The Cheetah is a supercar featured in both the 3D Universe and HD Universe. It is manufactured by Grotti in the HD Universe.

Design

3D Universe

In all its iterations the vehicle closely resembles a 1984-1996 Ferrari Testarossa, with each game's version following the design of the corresponding era:

In Grand Theft Auto III and Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories, it looks like a slightly genericized and modernized Ferrari Testarossa F512 M.

In Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, it resembles a mid-80s Testarossa.

In Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, the Cheetah resembles a Ferrari 512 TR Testarossa, albeit without the hidden headlamps, and with the rear lights of an Ferrari Testarossa F512 M.

Looking at the shape of the car, it's clear to see that it is mid-engine. However, when the hood is removed, in Grand Theft Auto III and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, the engine appears to be at the front, possibly due to programming limitations. This is in stark contrast to the design of the Testarossa in general, which has the engine placed behind the passenger compartment, just in front of the rear axle (mid-engine). However, in GTA San Andreas, the design is more faithful to the real-life counterpart, with the engine being evidently placed at the rear of the chassis, while the front is empty. The engine of the Cheetah sounds and looks like a V10.

The Ferrari Testarossa began sales in 1984 (The year in which Vice City Stories is set). The first "red head" didn't sell enough until late 1985, and therefore, for the sake of having no irregularities about the comparison of the two cars, the developers of the game made the Cheetah scarce in Vice City Stories, spawning only in parking lots.

Grand Theft Auto V

The Cheetah is reintroduced in Grand Theft Auto V. Unlike in previous games, the Cheetah is now based on the Ferrari Enzo with elements of the Enzo, Ferrari FXX, the Pagani Zonda and the SSC Tuatara on the front bumper. The rear overhang is similar to that on the GTA Spano. The rear hood is inspired by the Mercedes CLK GTR as both of them have big engines and rear hoods. The carbon fibre stripe on the bonnet resembles that of the Pagani Zonda Tricolore. It is stated to be a 1970s prototype, put out by Grotti for limited production, and has a top speed of 220 mph, previously according to the website before the Lowriders update.

Performance

The Cheetah is one of the best performing original supercars in GTA V, being able to compete with the Adder, the Entity XF, the Turismo R and the Zentorno. Having a great speed and acceleration makes it useful for most situations, like robberies and police chases, and like its previous 3D universe rendition it also has extremely responsive handling and braking, making it much more agile than other super cars in the game. This makes it particularly useful in Online urban races where, in the hands of a considerably skilled driver, can easily turn through a street corner without having to decelerate much. The car tends to wheelspin when setting off, significantly more than other supercars.

The engine model appears to be a single-overhead camshaft V8, evidently by the exhaust manifolds seen when the rear hood is removed. The car features intercoolers located directly after the side-intakes, suggesting the car is turbocharged. The exact same engine model is found in several other, similar-tier supercars, like the Turismo R, Osiris, T20, Reaper, and FMJ. The website also claims it sports a 6-liter engine.

Fun Facts

  • The car is named after an animal with the same name, which is a type of feline capable of running at high speeds. This clearly refers to the car's superior performance in its class.
  • The Cheetah plays the radio stations by default when entered:
  • GTA San Andreas: SF-UR
  • GTA V: Non Stop Pop FM
  • If the suspension is lowered to the maximum through Los Santos Customs, the Cheetah is able to drive right under high-suspension vehicles, such as the Sandking XL, at high speed and sometimes some low-suspension vehicles if driving head-on against them. This can also be done with the Turismo R.
  • The price of the car in GTA V is evidence of its similarity with its inspiration car, the Ferrari Enzo as the Enzo costs €655,000 ($687,520).
  • Like the Turismo R, you can't pick prostitutes with this car, due to its tiny interior space.
  • The Cheetah on the car carrier in the mission Pack Man has a glass roof, suggesting it could have originally had a glass roof rather than a carbon fiber one.
  • In the enhanced version, the speedometer only reads up to 200 mph, despite claiming it can reach up to 221 mph. The same mistake is also present on many sports and super cars, such as on the Adder and Entity XF.
  • In the enhanced version, the Grotti badge will glow when the high-beam lights are turned on.
  • According to the ambient files, the Cheetah is one of several named vehicles in-game that make up distant car sounds. Other vehicles include the Entity XF, Banshee, Comet, Daemon, Carbonizzare, Vacca and Feltzer.
