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 semi-soft suspension makes the car very 'lively' making it un-recommendable in tight races and chases, and also to beginners with a low driving skill. It is assumed that it shares its drivechain with the Sabre GT. Which means it features a gargantuan 9-litre (550 ci) turbocharged V8 coupled to a long-throw 5-speed automated manual transmission. This engine is notoriously torque-y and puts any chassis under stress, and here it's no exception. Coupled with the fact that the long transmission makes anticipating the boost difficult, this car should be kept on the freeway.

The Declasse Sabre Turbo is a muscle car featured in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories and Grand Theft Auto V.

Design

3D Universe

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.

HD Universe

The Sabre Turbo looks almost identical to its predecessor, the Sabre GT. Minor differences include shinier chrome, and slightly more aggressive arch flares on the GTA V rendition.

Performance

3D Universe

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.

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