"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 third generation 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 front fascia is based on the newer fifth generation Chevrolet Camaro. The Gauntlet also appears to feature actual sealed beam headlights, rather than the Challenger's modern retro-inspired headlights. Its rear end draws heavily from the Challenger, though the taillights are closer to the ones on the fifth generation Camaro.

Performance

Like other muscle cars, the Gauntlet has a tendency to spin out, it has only average top speed but 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.

Trivia

  • A "gauntlet" is handwear of leather or metal commonly worn as part of a suit of armor.
  • It is likely 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.
