"Nothing says Hip Hop like a British SUV known primarily for its ability to transport mineral rich colonialists across invaded lands."
Southern San Andreas Super Autos description.

The Gallivanter Baller is a vehicle making its debut appearance in Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online.

Design

Grand Theft Auto V

The Baller is a four-door luxury SUV that is available in two generations, which differs in design and features:

First generation

The first generation Baller's design is an adaptation of the Huntley Sport from Grand Theft Auto IV, which is based on the L322 Range Rover Vogue. However, it features a different and less luxurious headlights, similar to the first generation GMC Yukon. In comparison with Range Rover models however, the C and D pillars of the Baller have a much steeper gradient. Overall, the car shares many similarities in design and profile with the Huntley from Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.

The Baller has a prominent plastic front bumper, with a trapezium intake bearing a black separation on the middle and a chrome underline. The outer portions of the bumper have circular fog lamps, together with black underlines below the lamps and ridges over the same, at the same height as the intake. The upper side is mostly plain with the license plate on the center.

The front face of the car bears a chrome surrounding, housing the main grille on the center and the headlamp units on the edges. Each lamp unit and turning signal is separated by chrome lines, with a wider line between the upper and lower lamps. The grille itself has a wide bar on the middle and two thinner ones between the main headlamps. Above the chrome surrounding, "GALLIVANTER" can be seen embossed on the front part of the bonnet.

On the sides, twin square-shaped vents are present on either front quarter, between the wheel arches and the front doors, close to the bonnet level. A ridged detail can be seen between the front and rear arches, along with a less-notorious rigded detail at the same level as the lamp units and door handles. The cabin is much angled than the Huntley and features black, polymer-covered A, B, C and D pillars. Small stepsides can be seen at the bottom.

On the rear end, the bumper features a concave formation with the same "GALLIVANTER" embossed on the center, featuring a black polymer finish at the bottom and small mouldings for the twin exhaust pipes. The same rear bumper reaches onto the lower rear of the sides and black mudguards are attached to either end of the bumper, intended for the rear wheel. A trapezium formation can be seen on the center of the rear hatch, serving as a space for the license plate and having a chrome detail on the upper side. the tail lights are surrounded in black panels, with thin red stripes for the third brake light. The car has eight-spoke rims, wrapped in low-profile tyres.

Second generation

The second generation Baller features linear formations that are inspired by the British design styling featured on the more compact Range Rover Evoque for the front end and L494 Range Rover Sport for the sides and greenhouse area, A, B and C pillars. The side accents from the L405 Range Rover are featured on the sides of the car. The car features black, polymer-covered A, B, C and D pillars.

The front face of the car features a lot of polymer, similar to the car's real life inspiration. The base of the front bumper features a polymer layer spanning the entire width. Two thirds of the front face width and a third of its height is occupied by a trapezium formation, with the outer part being black and the inset trapezium being chrome. Outside the central areas and at about half the car's height there are large ducts that have edges contoured to the lower trapezium, main grille and headlights. These ducts have horizontal LED strips that run from the inner vertex of the ducts.

The main grille is located almost at the top of the front face, being a chrome-edged trapezium which is less wide than the lower trapezium. The main grille features two horizontal chrome strips either side of mid-height. The headlamp units are linked to the grille, with the top edge coinciding with the top of the grille and bottom edge with the upper horizontal strip. The headlamp units feature two circular lamps and then an amber turn indicator lamp on the outside. The bonnet/ hood features an elevated area whose edges are in line with the top corners of the grille.

The sides of the car feature wheel arches in the form of large bulges. The main body features an impressed area bounded by two lines parallel to the car's belt line. Connecting the two lines at the front quarter is a vertical air duct. As with the older model, the car features black, polymer-covered A, B, C and D pillars. The roof is lightly curved. The wing mirrors are dominantly body-coloured but feature a black polymer accent. The car features split six-spoke wheels, wrapped in low profile tyres. The rear features small, wide lamp units that mostly consist of small LEDs.

Performance

Grand Theft Auto V

First generation

The first generation Baller is quite slow and heavy, and has a wide turning radius. Acceleration is average, reaching from 0-60 in about 8 seconds, however, like every Land Rover, the Baller is capable of climbing steep hills and has a decent performance when off-roading. Another advantage is durability, it is easily one of the most durable cars in the game. The vehicle is prone to understeer at high speeds, likely due to poor weight distribution.

Second generation

The second generation Baller accelerates at an average rate for an SUV, and is capable of reaching good top speed. The main weakness of the car's performance lies in its handling; the car's mass combined with its lack of traction can often lead to heavy understeer. When taken off-road however, the car's handling is better and cornering grip can allow for precise high speed driving off-road. The handling of the SUV can be quickly summarized as a level below the Huntley Sport in almost every way imaginable.

Though the engine model does not feature any manifolds, the engine cover displays what appears to be a single-overhead camshaft V8, fitted in a front engine, all wheel drive (60% front, 40% rear) layout, longitudinally.

Trivia

General

  • "Baller" is a street slang term for drug dealer or a thug that has made it big-time, and as such its use for the name of the vehicle in the game is likely a reference to the luxury SUVs often driven by such people.
  • In the beta, the G1 Baller had six-spoke wheels (which featured on early L322 Range Rovers) and an RR sport side quarter duct.
  • Also, there is an advertisement with the picture of the G1 Baller with what it seems the be a bumper splitter and additional side steps or skirts. Such modifications for the SUV are not available in the game.
  • In earlier versions of Southern San Andreas Super Autos, the Baller's picture was incorrect. It showed the Classic Baller instead of the Sport Baller. This was subsequently fixed when said website was revamped.
  • By appling tinted windows on the first generation Baller, the fog lights will turn black.

Grand Theft Auto V

Grand Theft Auto Online

  • The first generation Baller can be selected as an off-road vehicle in GTA Online, while the second generation can only be selected as an SUV, despite its good performance on off-road terrain. The same thing happens with the Mesa and the Crusader.
