The GTA series has always had a fleeting relationship with reality. Los Santos is based on Los Angeles, but isn’t quite the same. Liberty City is based on New York, but isn’t quite the same. Many of the vehicles are based on real life cars and planes, but aren’t quite the same. The Coil Brawler, the luxury off-road vehicle coming in Ill-Gotten Gains Part II, is no different. It is based on the Rally Fighter by Local Motors, but – you guessed it – not quite the same.
The luxury 4×4 will be arriving in-game on the 8th of July, which is when the Ill-Gotten Gains Part II DLC will launch. In a recent announcement on the newswire, Rockstar has revealed the full content of the update, including clothing items, weapons and other vehicles.
The Coil Brawler is a sleek but intimidating off-road vehicle that is bound to make you reach deep into your pockets. The real-life counterpart, the Rally Fighter by Local Motors, is the kind of vehicle that looks great, stylish and elegant, has a hefty price-tag, but you wouldn’t be scared to take it into the thick of it. The problem with high-end luxury off-road vehicles is that people who buy them are much too afraid to actually go off-road, and in some cases, with good reason. The Rally Fighter is one tough machine, and it certainly looks like it can take a beating without it showing (then again, depending on who you ask, if your off-road vehicle looks good-as-new, you’re doing it wrong).
GTA V won’t be the Rally Fighter’s first outing in the gaming industry, as the car appeared in Forza Horizon 2 as well. The off-road beast will allow players to explore the more treacherous parts of GTA V’s map in style. In theme with the Ill-Gotten Gains DLC as a whole, this car shows that the owner’s bank account probably looks like a phone number (unless they bought the golden plated jet from the previous DLC).
Will you guys be getting a Coil Brawler?
