Compared to a regular Sabre, the Sabre Turbo is capable of better acceleration, top speed and cornering, and emits a different engine sound from its stock counterpart. Due to its modified engine, the car also emits a noise associated with vintage turbo-charged engines (possibly a turbocharged V8 with multi-barrel carburetor).

The Sabre GT houses a turbocharged version of the regular [[Sabre]]'s herculean 9-litre (550 ci) V8, equipped with the same drivetrain. The lack of a sixth gear in the 'box results in a top speed of 153 mph (246 km/h). The behemoth of an engine is comparable to that of the Imponte [[Dukes (car)|Dukes]], though the wider tires and shorter wheelbase eliminate a trifle of the hideous wheelspin resulting from the rear wheels having to cope with such levels of torque. Though the back-end readily swings round corners, this is noticeably more controllable in corners than the Imponte equivalent. The exhaust note is unique to the Sabre GT, and it shares its horn with the [[Sabre]]. Although the exhaust note more closely resembles the [[Stallion]] when heard from the rear of the car, it is slightly less audible in comparison. However, when heard from the front of the car, the whistle of the turbo and the roar of the 550ci V8 is distinct.

In GTA V, the Sabre Turbo's performance is on par with the more modern muscle cars such as the [[Dominator]] and the [[Gauntlet]], although its softer suspension makes the car somewhat twitchy, making it un-recommendable in tight races and chases, and also to beginners, or anyone with a low driving skill. It can be assumed that it shares its drivetrain with the Sabre GT, which means it features the exceptionally powerful 9-litre (550 ci) turbocharged V8 coupled to a long-throw 5-speed semi-auto manual transmission. This engine has enough torque to put any chassis under stress, and here it's no exception. Coupled with the fact that the long transmission makes anticipating the boost difficult, it could be said that this car should be kept on the freeway, where a driver can get the most out of the car's massive power. It's top speed is pretty far from other muscle cars at a region of 177 mph (285 kph).

The Declasse Sabre Turbo and Sabre GT are high performance variants of the Sabre featured in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, Grand Theft Auto IV, Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars and Grand Theft Auto V.

Design Edit

3D Universe Edit

Other than the presence of a racing stripe, the Sabre Turbo appears largely the same as a standard Sabre, down to the rims. The GTA Vice City rendition of this vehicle appears only in red and striped in white color (this is fixed to the car in the .txd file in gta3.img) whereas in GTA Vice City Stories, it appears in several colors, while retaining a racing stripe that is constantly light green. In GTA Vice City Stories, the Cholo Sabre looks the same as the Sabre Turbo only it is yellow with a white stripe.

HD Universe Edit

Named as the Sabre GT in Grand Theft Auto IV, it borrows bits and pieces from various American muscle cars. The back and sides resemble a 1970 Oldsmobile Cutlass, but the sides have softer lines and could be from a 69' Chevelle SS, the front is similar to a 70' Buick GSX (the headlights and the shape of the bumper is also very similar to a 1970 Cutlass) and the front bumper's round turning signals are similar to a 69' Dodge Coronet. The wheels appear to be based on those found on a 70' Pontiac Firebird. The paintjob seems to look like that of a Mustang Mach 1 with some characteristics of a Shelby Mustang. The different hood scoop on some Sabre GTs resembles that of a 1968 Shelby Mustang, while some resemble the 442 Cutlass. Overall, the look created emulates the GM big body V8 coupes of the early 70's (Cutlass, Skylark, Chevelle). The Sabre GT has a different Declasse logo than the makers other cars, being an older design, a circle with "Declasse" written around the inside edge.

In Grand Theft Auto V, the Sabre GT remains unchanged, the only difference is a shinier grille and now it is again called Sabre Turbo.

In GTA Vice City, it is an excellent car for street racing, as it's as competitive as more modern sports cars like BansheeInfernus or Stinger, despite its rather soft suspension.
