The overall structure has a strong resemblance to the First Generation Chevrolet Luminas, but as a 2-door sedan rather than the Lumina's 4-door design. The front of the Bravura and the trimming on the sides has a resemblance to a 1987–1993 Ford Mustang but some details like the wide-looking side profile are different and look much like an '80s GM N platform coupe vehicle like the 1985-1991 Pontiac Grand Am. The slope of the C Pillar, and general shape of the back end also bear a fair bit of resemblance to the 1989-95 Dodge Spirits and Plymouth Acclaims. The shape is also similar to a 1989–1997 Mercury Cougar but the car, being based on the cougar is unlikely since the Mercury Cougar is a large and heavy car. It is most likely a Vapid or Dundreary car.
Acceleration is average due to a small (likely 4 or 6-cylinder) engine being matched to a front-wheel drivetrain, but pulling a small curb weight. What is truly disappointing about this car, though, is the significant lack of speed that would be expected from the light frame. Handling is average, but the car exhibits understeer. Brakes tend on the weak side, but are effective due to the light chassis and inability to reach very high speeds. Also due to its light weight, every time it changes gear the car moves up and down violently.
