The [[Imponte]] '''Phoenix''' is a two-door muscle car that appears in [[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City]], [[Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas]], [[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories]] and possibly [[Grand Theft Auto V]].
+
==Design==
+
In every rendition, the Phoenix is based on the [[wp:Pontiac Firebird|1979-1981 Pontiac Firebird]] and [[wp:Chevrolet Camaro#|1982-1992 Chevrolet Camaro]] but the round taillights are similar to [[wp:Chevrolet Camaro (second generation)|1970-1973 Chevrolet Camaros]]. The front portion was resembling [[wp:Vauxhall Firenza|1973-1975 Vauxhall Firenza]], especially the Droopsnoot version. It has varied slightly throughout the games, with a rear deck lid blackout panel in GTA San Andreas, and a thinner stripe in GTA Vice City Stories. It returns in GTA V, having a near-identical appearance from GTA III era versions, although it now takes up resemblance as the [[wp:Pontiac Firebird#Second generation|1970 Pontiac Firebird]].
== Description ==
 
It is based on the [[wp:Pontiac Firebird#Second generation (1970-1981)|1979-1981 Pontiac Firebird]] but the round taillights are similar to [[wp:Chevrolet Camaro (second generation)|1970-1973 Chevrolet Camaros]]. The front portion was resembling [[wp:Vauxhall Firenza#Droopsnoot Firenza|1973-1975 Vauxhall Firenza]], especially the Droopsnoot version. It has varied slightly throughout the games, with a rear deck lid blackout panel in GTA San Andreas, and a thinner stripe in GTA Vice City Stories.
 
 
The Phoenix is one of the fastest cars in the game, and has excellent torque, and handling. The Phoenix drives and sounds as if powered by a large V8 engine, and also features a large airscoop for the carburetor. It can also be modified in [[TransFender]] in GTA: San Andreas with nearly all of the available options for customization, but most of of the catagories have only one option as with most car customization in San Andreas. The Phoenix in GTA San Andreas is an excellent vehicle off- road and the best sports car for off-roading in the game and it is better at off-roading than some of the SUV's in the game. Like most muscle cars, it has a two person capacity. On the downside, the brakes are not as good as the other sports cars in GTA San Andreas.

  +
====HD Universe====
  +
The Phoenix is powered by a high-output V8 engine, and it has a high top speed and decent acceleration. It also has excellent torque and can climb steep hills with ease. Unfortunately, it suffers from poor handling. Its poor weight distribution and light rear end leads to severe oversteer, especially at high speeds. Its back end is prone to fishtailing, and crashes and spin-outs may occur more often than usual in this car. The durability is below-par, and it is prone to frame loss (fenders, bumpers, hoods, etc.) in event of a rollover accident. 
  +
  +
It's one of the cars that can be highly benefited by the performance customizations, as its acceleration can be topped with the right modifications.

The Imponte Phoenix is a two-door muscle car that appears in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories and Grand Theft Auto V.

DesignEdit

In every rendition, the Phoenix is based on the 1979-1981 Pontiac Firebird and 1982-1992 Chevrolet Camaro but the round taillights are similar to 1970-1973 Chevrolet Camaros. The front portion was resembling 1973-1975 Vauxhall Firenza, especially the Droopsnoot version. It has varied slightly throughout the games, with a rear deck lid blackout panel in GTA San Andreas, and a thinner stripe in GTA Vice City Stories. It returns in GTA V, having a near-identical appearance from GTA III era versions, although it now takes up resemblance as the 1970 Pontiac Firebird.
