"An American muscle car in a class by itself. Roll down the windows and scream in testosterone-filled rage as you gun the engine while stuck in traffic. DNA wipes easily off the leather seats."
Southern San Andreas Super Autos description.

The Bravado Gauntlet is two-door muscle car featured in Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online.

Design

The Gauntlet is heavily inspired by the 2008-2013 Dodge Challenger based on its distinctive body shape, with lines that are flared and smooth. It also sports styling cues directly from the 1970s E-Body muscle cars, with hood scoops resembling the first generation Challenger ones or 1970-1974 Plymouth Barracuda ones and side scoops like the 1971 Challenger R/T ones. The Gauntlet also appears to feature actual sealed beam headlights, rather than the Challenger's modern retro-inspired headlights. The grille somewhat resembles that from the fifth generation Chevrolet Camaro, with a sharp nose. Its rear end draws heavily from the Challenger, though the taillights are closer to the ones on the fifth generation Camaro.

Main article: Redwood Gauntlet

The enhanced edition of Grand Theft Auto V features a unique Gauntlet with a Redwood Cigarettes livery, exclusively for players returning from Xbox 360/PS3. This variant appears during the Stock Car Races and will become available in each protagonist's garage once the player wins the 2nd stock car race.

Prominent Appearances in Missions

Grand Theft Auto V

  • Four Gauntlets are needed for the game's final main story heist only if you picked the first option. The player only needs to source three of these, before modifying them at Los Santos Customs. They can either be found at specific locations pointed out by Lester or if the player prefers, bought from the Internet.
  • Liz Macallen owns a black Gauntlet that got wrecked and was going to be picked up by her then boyfriend Alonzo on a taxi ride, but a brawl with the taxi driver caused Alonzo to be dead and then she started seeing the driver later on. This Gauntlet has a custom license plate that reads SNAKEYES.

Locations

Grand Theft Auto V


Grand Theft Auto Online

  • Can be found in traffic.

Trivia

  • A "gauntlet" is handwear of leather or metal commonly worn as part of a suit of armor.
    • It is possible Rockstar chose the name from the phrase "to throw down the gauntlet" which is a term that means "to challenge" and so is possibly connected to the modern Challenger upon which the car was based.
  • The Gauntlet has no reverse lights.
  • The default radio station for the Gauntlet is Channel X.
  • Similarly to the Vapid Dominator and the Cheval Fugitive, the Gauntlet is equipped with a carburated engine, which is unusual as it is based on a modern vehicle.
  • The Gauntlet turns the fog lamps on when you press the headlight beam button, rather than turning full beam lights on.
  • The Gauntlet is considered to be the descendant of the Challenger in GTA 1.
