The Sabre GT has a different [[Declasse]] logo than the makers other cars, being an older design, a circle with "Declasse" written around the inside edge.

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 carburettor). 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 Vice City Stories, its performance traits are similar to that of the [[Polaris V8]].

=== ''Grand Theft Auto IV'' ===

The Sabre GT houses a turbocharged version of the regular [[Sabre]]'s herculean 9-litre (550 ci) V8, equipped with the same drivetrain. The lack of a sixth gear in the gearbox results in a top speed of 153 mph (246 km/h). The behemoth of an engine is comparable to that of the Imponte [[Dukes (car)|Dukes]], though the wider tires and shorter wheelbase eliminate a trifle of the hideous wheelspin resulting from the rear wheels having to cope with such levels of torque. Though the back-end readily swings round corners, this is noticeably more controllable in corners than the Imponte equivalent. The exhaust note is unique to the Sabre GT, and it shares its horn with the [[Sabre]]. Although the exhaust note more closely resembles the [[Stallion]] when heard from the rear of the car, it is slightly less audible in comparison. However, when heard from the front of the car, the whistle of the turbo and the roar of the 550ci V8 is distinct.

In GTA V, the Sabre Turbo features the same powerful 550 ci turbocharged V8 coupled to a long-throw 5-speed semi-auto manual transmission powering the rear wheels. Being a classic 70's muscle car, the vehicle has a heavy body, soft suspension, and mediocre brakes, and suffers from large amounts of wheelspin when accelerating. However, it can still keep up with more modern muscle cars as a result of its surprisingly good turning circle and exceptional power. The vehicle's weight also works to its advantage in reducing oversteer and providing exceptional durability and ability to shunt other cars around.

The Sabre Turbo (also known as the Sabre GT in Grand Theft Auto IV) is a high performance variants of the Sabre featured in both the 3D Universe and the HD Universe. It is manufactured by Declasse in HD Universe.

Design Edit

3D Universe Edit

Other than the presence of a racing stripe, the Sabre Turbo appears largely the same as a standard Sabre. The Grand Theft Auto: 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 Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, it appears in several colors, while retaining a racing stripe that is constantly light green. In GTA Vice City Stories, the Cholo Sabre looks the same as the Sabre Turbo only it is yellow with a white stripe.

HD Universe Edit

Named as the Sabre GT in Grand Theft Auto IV, it borrows bits and pieces from various American muscle cars. The back and sides resemble a 1970 Oldsmobile Cutlass, but the sides have softer lines and could be from a 69' Chevelle SS, the front is similar to a 70' Buick GSX or a '70 Chevelle Malibu (the headlights and the shape of the bumper is also very similar to a 1970 Cutlass or 1969 Plymouth Road Runner) and the front bumper's round turning signals are similar to a 69' Dodge Coronet. The wheels appear to be based on those found on a 70' Pontiac Firebird. The paintjob seems to look like that of a Mustang Mach 1 with some characteristics of a Shelby Mustang. The different hood scoop on some Sabre GTs resembles that of a 1968 Shelby Mustang, while some resemble the 442 Cutlass. Overall, the look created emulates the GM big body V8 coupes of the early 70's (Cutlass, Skylark, Chevelle). The Sabre GT has a different Declasse logo than the makers other cars, being an older design, a circle with "Declasse" written around the inside edge.

In Grand Theft Auto V, it is again called a Sabre Turbo but remains almost identical to the GTA IV appearance. The differences include a shinier grille and it loses the chin spoiler. It also sports a fairly wide selection of parts that can be installed in Los Santos Customs including a chin spoiler to make it look like the GTA IV version.

Performance Edit

3D Universe Edit

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 carburettor). 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.

Grand Theft Auto IV Edit

The Sabre GT houses a turbocharged version of the regular Sabre's herculean 9-litre (550 ci) V8, equipped with the same drivetrain. The lack of a sixth gear in the gearbox results in a top speed of 153 mph (246 km/h). The behemoth of an engine is comparable to that of the Imponte Dukes, though the wider tires and shorter wheelbase eliminate a trifle of the hideous wheelspin resulting from the rear wheels having to cope with such levels of torque. Though the back-end readily swings round corners, this is noticeably more controllable in corners than the Imponte equivalent. The exhaust note is unique to the Sabre GT, and it shares its horn with the Sabre. Although the exhaust note more closely resembles the Stallion when heard from the rear of the car, it is slightly less audible in comparison. However, when heard from the front of the car, the whistle of the turbo and the roar of the 550ci V8 is distinct.

Trivia Edit

GeneralEdit

3D UniverseEdit

  • In the GTA Vice City beta, the Sabre Turbo had twin tail lights and had its grille split in the middle.
  • A unique Sabre Turbo can be obtained in GTA Vice City, during the mission The Driver.
  • Even though the Sabre Turbo in GTA Vice City Stories has dual exhaust pipes, exhaust fumes only come from the right pipe.
  • The Sabre's name could be inspired by its real-life counterpart the Oldsmobile Cutlass, as the names are two types of swords.

HD UniverseEdit

Sabre GT ppcraft

A papercraft version of the Sabre GT in Chinatown wars, can be downloaded at the Rockstar Games Social Club.

  • On the back cover of the GTA IV disc case, there's a picture of Niko outrunning several Police Cruisers in a red and white Sabre GT.
  • In GTA IV, the police refer to the Sabre GT as a "Classique Sabre GT", but this car is made by Declasse, although it looks like an Oldsmobile.
  • After collecting all cars for Stevie he agrees to purchase cars off Niko, with the Sabre GT fetching $2000
  • In GTA V, the Sabre Turbo was used to show off the modification aspects of the game.
  • One of the cars on which the Sabre Turbo is based in the HD universe, the Buick GSX, prominently appeared on one of the promotional posters for the original Grand Theft Auto.
  • Although it is called a "Sabre Turbo" in GTA V, the badge on the trunk says "Sabre GT".
  • In GTA V, the Stunt Cage modification will remove the car's passenger seat, yet the vehicle is still able to seat two. Part of the Stunt Cage's tubular structure also passes between the two passenger places, which in reality would make moving from one side to the other impossible (or at the very least incredibly difficult), yet if the player enters their vehicle from the passenger side, they will slide over to the driver's seat as normal, actually clipping through the Stunt Cage as they do so.
