"There's a kind of charm that only comes with age, and in today's jaded world nothing's aged better than the Cheetah Classic. It's practical, spacious, understated. It oozes red-blooded panache. You open the door, and you catch the smell of brandy and cigars on its breath. It's eminently respectable, it's constantly groping its secretary, and it doesn't even feel the need to pretend it has friends from minority groups. Welcome to the old world."
Legendary Motorsport description.

The Grotti Cheetah Classic is a sports car featured in Grand Theft Auto Online as part of the Gunrunning update, released on July 11th, 2017, during the Cheetah Classic Week event.

Design

Grand Theft Auto Online

"If you’ve never been able to decide between vintage vogue and cutting-edge chic, the Grotti Cheetah Classic will let you have it both ways. This beauty has been setting trends and breaking records ever since it rolled off the production line three decades ago, so if you want to ooze class and rocket fuel all at the same time, your number just came up. The Cheetah Classic is now available exclusively at Legendary Motorsport."
Rockstar Newswire description.

The car's design heavily resembles the Ferrari Testarossa, with elements of the Ferrari 512 BB from its taillights and frontal area and also elements of the Ferrari 288 GTO from its fog lights, hood and air vents behind the rear wheels.As intended, the car has similarities to the 3D universe rendition of the Cheetah, particularly with its Testarossa influences. Its overall compact design compared to other Grotti vehicles makes it also one of the lightest classic cars in the game, with very nimble handling. Despite the overall size of the car, it still features a large V12 engine mounted in front of the rear axle.

The car's frontal fascia is heavily based on that of the Testarossa, taking key features such as the popup headlamps and grille placement. Unlike the Testarossa, however, the Cheetah Classic lacks indicators, and instead features twin lamps besides the grille. On the bonnet itself, a vent is found by stock, appearing as a rather large grated metal plate laid across the bonnet. Directly behind is the radiator heat vent which would allow hot air to exit the vehicle.

The side profile is most prominent for its dual side intakes which allow airflow to reach both the rear brakes, and the engine intake manifolds for intake air, and for cooling purposes. Small "GROTTI" word marks are found on the black skirts, which matches the Cheetah's side word marks which are found behind the front arches.

The rear of the car features engine louvers which are separated into separate sections, which would ideally allow air to release from each side of the engine, conforming with the intakes found on either side of the engine bay.

The car's secondary color allows a stripe to be painted along the top of the car, similar to the Turismo Classic. Its interior is very similar to that of the Turismo Classic, featuting a stitched trim around the console's dial cluster and a "GROTTI" mark on the passenger side. However, the central area is narrower and a seam for the glove compartment is absent.

Performance

Grand Theft Auto Online

As expected, the Cheetah Classic is one of the best of its class, being on par with the Turismo Classic. It's safe to say in most Sports Classics races, one can choose between these two vehicles on their personal preference. As the Turismo Classic's biggest competition, the car also sports a V12 engine, outputting considerable amount of power at the rear wheels. Opposing to vehicles like the Infernus Classic, the Cheetah Classic has better traction, thereby reducing the likelihood of spinning out in corners, even in the inexperienced's hands. The braking also performs well, giving the driver enough window to react to a sudden event or turning before a catastrophic crash.

All in all, the Cheetah Classic is not only good for casual driving, but also ideal for professional race tracks.

Trivia

Grand Theft Auto Online

  • Based on Rockstar Newswire's description, the Cheetah Classic "has been setting trends and breaking records ever since it rolled off the production line three decades ago", suggesting it was one of the fastest cars in the 80s.
  • The design of the stock hood seems to be an oversight. The grille on the bonnet would be designed to allow warm air from the radiator to escape from the vehicle (where it would enter via the bumper grille), but the design of the grille on the Cheetah Classic is much more like an intake. Given the fact the vehicle lacks an initial air-conditioning grille in front of the window, it could serve purpose for the aircon system, assuming the car utilises one, while the metal grille positioned in front of this intake would act as a cooling unit for air to be released from.
  • The lamps located in the bumper are non-functional.
  • Through modifications, it is possible to make the Cheetah Classic's hood look identical to that of the original Ferrari Testarossa and the 3D Universe Cheetah.
  • The default radio station for the Cheetah Classic is Non-Stop-Pop FM.
