Imponte
A worn advertising of the Insurrection on a Little Havana billboard in GTA Vice City Stories. Note the lack of spacing or dashes on the "Turbo XRZ5 X-2" portion of the name.
Leo TopićAdded by Leo Topić

The Imponte Insurrection Turbo XRZ5 X-2 is a sports car advertised in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories.

Description Edit

Much like Maibatsu vehicles advertised in earlier games between GTA III and GTA Liberty City Stories, the Insurrection is not seen on the road, but is clearly featured on advertising; specifically, a billboard in Little Havana. Advertised as a powerful sports car, the radio ad is meant to appeal to men in midlife crisis. The car is stated to feature then state of the art accessories that have very little use performance-wise, and its full name parodies of the trend of using letters and numbers to denote car models.

The V-8 engine and T-top feature suggest that its real life equivalent is the third-generation Pontiac Firebird. Indeed, the shape and form of the car as depicted on its billboard advertising is equivalent to a car of this variety, and even features pop-up lights, however the appearance and placement of them is closer to the ones seen on the 1986 Pontiac Fiero SE 2M6, which is what the door pillar and cladding seem to be taken from as well. The sloping front could be taken from either the Fiero SE 2M6, or the 1983 Mazda RX-7 Series 2, which is definitely where the fog lamps, rear end, and some of the trim were taken from, the tail lights, however, seem to be at least partially inspired by the 3rd Generation Camaro, and the lower half of the nosecone appears to be taken from the Toyota Supra Mark III.

The car's appearance marks the first time the Imponte name is used as a car brand in the GTA series.
