The vehicle appears to be based off a fifth generation [[wp:Chevrolet_Camaro_(fifth_generation)|Chevrolet Camaro]] based on body shape, rear tail light styling, and the common yellow and black stripe color scheme. The car's styling pays homage to the 1960s muscle cars.

The Gauntlet is heavily inspired by the [[wp:Dodge Challenger|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 [[wp:Dodge Challenger|first generation Challenger]] ones or [[wp:Plymouth Barracuda|1970-1974 Plymouth Barracuda]] ones and side scoops like the [[wp:File:1971_Dodge_Challenger_RT_440_(2).jpg|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 [[wp:Chevrolet Camaro (fifth generation)|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.
 
A brief shot of the vehicle's hood in the trailer "Franklin" shows it has a black stripe and a centered air scoop, similar to the Camaro.
 
 
The sides of the car appear very muscular and have been created with reference to the 60s and 70s muscle cars. The sides of the car lack any formations on the main slabs. The wheel arches features thin flat faces. The car's rear quarter area bulges out from the main slabs of the car's sides.
 
 
The rear features wide taillight units, with thin chrome edges.

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

Design Edit

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 Edit

Like other muscle cars, the Gauntlet has a moderate tendency to spin out, it has above average top speed and outstanding acceleration, but it's only beaten by the Dominator.
