Based on the designs of the vehicles, Bravado is based on Dodge; however, several of its cars are based on non-Dodge vehicles. The Rumpo and the Paradise are based on Chevrolet vehicles, the Feroci is based on a Lexus vehicle, the Youga Classic is based on a Ford, and the Verlierer is based on a TVR.
Bravado's logo of a charging bull is a parody of Dodge's ram logo used since 1993 (which was discontinued in 2010 but continues as a logo for the Ram Truck line up). In Grand Theft Auto V they have a TV commercial showcasing the Bison, Gauntlet, and Buffalo, parodying various Dodge commercials.
- The bull's mouth on the Bravado logo resembles a penis when observed closely.
- Bravado seems to play on its car names relating to animals, with names such as Buffalo and Bison (both four-legged mammals sporting horns), directly mimicking Dodge's "Ram" subsidiary.
- Bravado is defined as "a bold manner or a show of boldness intended to impress or intimidate."
- According to several in-game advertisements and articles, Bravado neared bankruptcy at one point by 2013, and was bailed out by the U.S. government using taxpayer money. This parodies the actual bailout of the auto industry in 2008.
