Powered by a turbocharged V8 engine, the Faction is a fun car to drive with a high-torque engine up front. Combined with the FR drivetrain, handbrake turns are smooth yet controllable. ABS is standard, giving the brakes good stopping ability. Top speed is 195mph (313 km/h) {{Fact}}, and is reached fairly quickly due to its light body weight.

The Faction resembles a [[wp:Buick Regal#1978 - 1987|1982-1987 Buick Regal]] (similar to the [[Majestic]] in [[Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas]]). Details and portions of the design take cues from the [[wp:Buick Regal#Grand National, T-Type and GNX|Buick Grand National and Regal T-Type]]. The rear of the Faction, particularly the tail lights, take design cues from the Nissan 240RS Group B car.

  +
The car is powered by a hefty single overhead camshaft turbocharged V8 with a large air intake centralised on the engine bay. Just like its badges state, a turbocharger is present to the bottom left of the engine.
  +
The car has average performance. The Faction's acceleration is pretty slow and poor for its class, yet still has enough power to backfire when revved, despite this, the car's power is unable to allow good take-off and traction is minimal; the car struggles to drive up gradients more than around 30 degrees. It's top speed is acceptable, and is very similar to its IV generation. Braking is also average, nothing too special but enough to bring the heavy car to a stop in an acceptable amount of time, being much better than the GTA IV variant. The normal version of the Faction is not advised for long-term usage because this vehicle is extremely sensitive to minor imperfections in the road, and has a tendency to be sent into the air because of an imperfection, especially curbs.

The engine sound is rather unique, in that it shares elements (such as the backfiring stages and high-revving stages) from the [[Dukes (car)|Dukes]], but also has the low-revving/idle sound similar to that of the [[Blade (car)|Blade]] and [[Buccaneer]]. Purchasing a big-bore exhaust will make the engine sound more powerful, as well as giving the car much more horsepower and making the engine sound very similar to the [[Marshall]]'s.
Powered by a turbocharged 6.6 L V8 engine, the Faction is a fun car to drive with a high-torque engine up front. Combined with the FR drivetrain, handbrake turns are smooth yet controllable.

Grand Theft Auto IVEdit

The Faction is designed as a 1980's American sports coupe, depicted with a T-Top roof and front end fog lights. Some Factions are also equipped with a small hood scoop.

The Faction resembles a 1982-1987 Buick Regal (similar to the Majestic in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas). Details and portions of the design take cues from the Buick Grand National and Regal T-Type.

Grand Theft Auto OnlineEdit

This article or section refers to content in the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC renditions of Grand Theft Auto V, that is not featured on the Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 versions.
