"An American muscle car in a class by itself. Roll down the windows and scream in testosterone-filled rage as you gun the engine while stuck in traffic. DNA wipes easily off the leather seats."
Southern San Andreas Super Autos description.

The Bravado Gauntlet is two-door muscle car featured in Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online.

Design

Grand Theft Auto V

The Gauntlet is heavily inspired by the 2008-2013 Dodge Challenger, based on its distinctive body shape, with lines that are flared and smooth. It also sports styling cues directly from the 1970s E-Body muscle cars, with hood scoops resembling the first generation Challenger ones or 1970-1974 Plymouth Barracuda ones and side scoops like the 1971 Challenger R/T ones. The Gauntlet also appears to feature actual sealed beam headlights, rather than the Challenger's modern retro-inspired headlights, while having a grille that resembles the fifth generation Chevrolet Camaro. Its rear end draws heavily from the Challenger, though the taillights are closer to the ones on the fifth generation Chevrolet Camaro.

Most of its bodywork is painted with the primary color, while the secondary color is present as a wide stripe running across the whole vehicle, starting from the hood to the trunk, also going down onto the rear bumper.

Performance

Grand Theft Auto V

The Gauntlet has a strong 450cui single cam turbocharged V8 engine and high acceleration, capable of going from 0-60 in a matter of seconds, however, it has a moderate tendency to spin out, it has above average top speed and outstanding acceleration, but it is only beaten by the Dominator. Its engine is coupled to a 5-speed gearbox in a front engine, rear wheel drive layout.

Description

The enhanced edition of Grand Theft Auto V features a unique Gauntlet with a Redwood Cigarettes livery, named the Redwood Gauntlet. It is one of the four stock cars featured in the enhanced version of the game.

Prominent Appearances in Missions

Grand Theft Auto V

  • Four Gauntlets are needed for the game's final main story heist only if the player picked the Subtle approach. The player only needs to source three of these, before modifying them at Los Santos Customs. They can either be found at specific locations pointed out by Lester or if the player prefers, bought from the Internet.
  • Liz Macallen owns a black Gauntlet that broke down and was going to be picked up by her then boyfriend Alonzo on a taxi ride, but a brawl with the taxi driver caused Alonzo to be dead and then she started seeing the driver later on. This Gauntlet has a custom license plate that reads SNAKEYES.

Locations

Grand Theft Auto V

Grand Theft Auto Online

  • Can be found in traffic.
  • Spawns at the sewer tunnel exit at night, where gang members are having car races. Suranos, and Rapid GTs spawn there too.

Trivia

  • A "gauntlet" is handwear of leather or metal commonly worn as part of a suit of armor. It can also mean "challenge", a homage to the Challenger name.
  • The default radio station for the Gauntlet is Channel X.
