"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."
— Description from Southernsanandreassuperautos.com.

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

Design

The Gauntlet is heavily inspired by the 2008-2014 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. The grille somewhat resembles that from the fifth generation Chevrolet Camaro, with a sharp nose. Its rear end draws heavily from the Challenger, though the taillights are closer to the ones on the fifth generation Camaro.

Performance

The Gauntlet has a strong engine with 423hp and high acceleration, capable of going from 0-60 in only 4.6 seconds, however, it has a moderate tendency to spin out, it has above average top speed and outstanding acceleration, but it's only beaten by the Dominator.

Mission Appearances

GTA V

  • Four Gauntlets are needed for the game's final main story heist only if you picked the first option. 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 got wrecked 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.

Trivia

  • A "gauntlet" is handwear of leather or metal commonly worn as part of a suit of armor.
  • It is possible Rockstar chose the name from the phrase "to throw down the gauntlet" which is a term that means "to challenge" and so is possibly connected to the modern Challenger upon which the car was based.
  • It may also refer to the 1977 action movie The Gauntlet starring Clint Eastwood.
  • The Gauntlet has no reverse lights.
  • The default radio station is Channel X.
  • Similarly to the Vapid Dominator and the Cheval Fugitive, the Gauntlet is equipped with a carburated engine, which is unusual as it is based on a modern vehicle.
  • The Gauntlet turns the fog lamps on when you press the headlight beam button, rather than turning full beam lights on.
  • The Gauntlet is considered to be the descendant of the Challenger in GTA 1.
