The Sabre Turbo looks almost identical to its predecessor, the [[Sabre GT]]. Minor differences include shinier chrome and slightly more aggressive arch flares. The Sabre Turbo is argued frequently to be a 1970 Chevelle, when in fact it also shares some similarities with the 1970 Oldsmobile Cutlass. The most obvious similarities the Cutlass shares with the Sabre Turbo is the identical dual bar vertical taillights, and chrome headlight housing. The Sabre Turbo in GTA V is referred to as a very high performance muscle car of its age, so Rockstar likely used the Chevelle 454 Big Block, the Chevelle with the largest engine, for inspiration.

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

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.

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 Cholo Sabre looks the same as Sabre Turbo only it has yellow color with white stripe.

The Sabre Turbo looks almost identical to its predecessor, the Sabre GT. Minor differences include shinier chrome and slightly more aggressive arch flares. The Sabre Turbo is argued frequently to be a 1970 Chevelle, when in fact it also shares some similarities with the 1970 Oldsmobile Cutlass. The most obvious similarities the Cutlass shares with the Sabre Turbo is the identical dual bar vertical taillights, and chrome headlight housing. The Sabre Turbo in GTA V is referred to as a very high performance muscle car of its age, so Rockstar likely used the Chevelle 454 Big Block, the Chevelle with the largest engine, for inspiration.

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.

In GTA Vice City Stories, its performance traits are similar to that of the Polaris V8.
