The '''Tampa''' is a two-door muscle car featured in ''[[Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas]]'', ''[[The Ballad of Gay Tony]]'', and ''[[Grand Theft Auto Online]]''. The vehicle also appears in the opening cutscene of ''[[The Lost and Damned]]'', but cannot be obtained. It is manufactured by [[Declasse]] in the [[HD Universe]].
   
The '''Tampa''' is a two-door muscle car featured in [[Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas]] and seen only in one cutscene in [[The Lost and Damned]]. It returns as a fully-drivable car in [[The Ballad of Gay Tony]] and possibly [[Grand Theft Auto V]].

===''Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas''===
  +
The Tampa in ''Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas'' resembles a [[wp:Chevrolet Corvair|1965-1969 Chevrolet Corvair]], except it isn't rear-engined and it has a grill. It has plain steel wheels, and mismatched paint on multiple body panels, indicating it was put together with spare parts from a junkyard, making it one of the first "[[Beater]]" cars in the GTA series. These panels cannot be resprayed into a single color at [[Pay and Spray|Pay and Sprays]], but can be done at [[TransFender|TransFenders]]. However, the vehicle will retain its crooked licence plates if it's modified. The vehicle also appears to be over-scaled and in comparison to some under-scaled cars, as it looks much larger than an old compact. The Tampa is one of the gang cars used by the [[Da Nang Boys]], a gang based in [[San Fierro (3D Universe)|San Fierro]].
   
  +
===''Episodes From Liberty City''===
  +
In both ''[[The Lost and Damned]]'' and ''[[The Ballad of Gay Tony]]'', the [[Declasse]] Tampa is redesigned as a far more beefy muscle car that may butt heads with the [[Sabre GT]]. Parts of the exterior of Tampa is based on the [[wp:Ford Mustang|1964-1973 Ford Mustang]], while the front of the Tampa resembles a [[wp:Dodge Dart|1970/1971 Dodge Dart]]; the roof and sides of the car are reminiscent of the [[wp:Chevrolet Nova|68-72 Chevrolet Nova]] (but with less of a fastback profile); the rear is reminiscent of a [[wp:Dodge Charger (B-body)|1968 Dodge Charger]]. Being a muscle car, its engine sound is similar to that of a [[Sabre GT]] or [[Dukes]]. It can be seen sporting one all-over color, or with a double-stripe scheme. The paint job is based on that of a [[wp:Boss 302 Mustang|1969 Ford Mustang Boss 302]], with the stripe going across the trunk based on the [[wp:Super Bee|super bee]] stripe, found on performance cars from [[wp:Dodge|Dodge]] and [[wp:Plymouth (automobile)|Plymouth]] since the 1960s.
   
  +
The Tampa in ''TLAD'' only appears in the opening cutscene in front of the [[Pay 'n' Spray]] and is also featured in the BradyGames Strategy Guide for the episode. However, an email sent by Rockstar indicated that the car was not actually drivable in the game. the car is also not programmed to appear on streets, even if the player drives it.
   
  +
The Tampa reappears in ''TBoGT'' as a fully functional car and is a common sight early in the game. While still lacking a manufacturer's badge, the car is implied through police chatter to be a [[Bravado]] model, although it is actually a Declasse model.
   
==GTA San Andreas==

The Tampa has the same interior as the [[Sabre GT]].

It has plain steel wheels, and mismatched paint on multiple body panels, indicating it was put together with spare parts from a junkyard, this also makes it one of the first "[[Beater]]" cars in GTA, along with the [[Clover]].

  +
{{Next-Gen}}
  +
In GTA Online, the Tampa returns as part of the [[Festive Surprise 2015]] update and it was released on Wednesday, December 23, 2015. Note that this car was depicted in the first day of the update (seen in a screenshot), yet the car was released 2 days later.
   
  +
The car retains its design as in EFLC, except by some minor details on the interior and, by default, lacks the ram-air hood intake (which can be added at [[Los Santos Customs]] as a hood modification, however). The rims have also been changed since its last appearance to match its muscle car appearance. Both renditions of the Tampa (from TBoGT and GTA Online) have a mark saying "310GT".

==Performance==
  +

  +
The Tampa's performance is, at best, below average, with sluggish acceleration and mediocre top speed, as well as heavy steering and unstable cornering, like that of a [[Clover]] and a [[Sabre]].
   
<span style="font-size:16px;">Performance</span>
+
===''Episodes from Liberty City''===
  +
The Tampa's performance, which is identical in both ''TLAD'' and ''TBoGT'', is considerably good in terms of raw power. The car's acceleration is excellent and the car can reach a considerably high top speed. This is because the car features a 310 cui (5.1L) V8 which produces a lot of torque at low RPM which allows burnouts to be performed easily, the combination of the large size of the engine and the softness of the suspension means that cornering is rather unpredictable, however, as the car can spin out in sharper turns or burn out, if the player applies gas to the car, as the car generates excess torque. Braking is considerably impressive considering the car's weight, providing the car with shorter stopping distances.

*Color (allows the car to feature a single tone body color)
+
The car's V8 engine is fairly powerful, providing enough torque to make the wheels spin on takeoff and to give it decent top speed and acceleration. The handling is relatively stable for a muscle car, helped by the very good suspension. The frame is very heavy and rather durable, but the front and rear fascias show a bit less crash durability than one would expect and the car is also not particularly resistant to gunfire. The brakes aren't very good, meaning the car requires brake discipline to corner properly. The car overall feels like the [[Sabre Turbo]] with a bit less power in exchange for better cornering.

=== Design ===
 
In both [[The Lost and Damned]] and [[The Ballad of Gay Tony]], the [[Bravado]] Tampa is redesigned as a far more beefy muscle car that may butt heads with the [[Sabre GT]]. Parts of the exterior of Tampa is based on the [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ford_Mustang 1964-1973 Ford Mustang] , while the front of the Tampa resembles a [[wp:Dodge Dart#1970–1976|1970/1971 Dodge Dart]]; the roof and sides of the car are reminiscent of the [[wp:Chevrolet Nova#Third generation|'68-72 Chevrolet Nova]] (but with less of a fastback profile); the rear is reminiscent of a [[wp:Dodge Charger (B-body)#1968-1970|1968 Dodge Charger]]. Being a muscle car, its engine sound is similar to that of a [[Sabre GT]] or [[Dukes]]. It can be seen sporting one all-over color, or with a double-stripe scheme. The paint job is based on that of a [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boss_302_Mustang 1969 Ford Mustang Boss 302], with the stripe going across the trunk based on the [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Super_Bee super bee] stripe, found on performance cars from [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dodge Dodge] and [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plymouth_(automobile) Plymouth] since the 1960s.
 
   
The Tampa in TLAD only appears in the opening cutscene in front of the [[Pay 'n' Spray]] and is also featured in the BradyGames Strategy Guide for the episode. There was speculation by fans that the vehicle was available to drive outside of the cutscene, and the claims were backed up by lines in the game code which specify the handling and animations of the car; indeed, the car can be spawned by using cheat device and driven like a normal vehicle - it has every data to being drivable. An email sent by Rockstar indicated that the car was not actually drivable in the game; the car is also not programmed to appear on streets, even if the player drives it.

This is because the car features a 310 cui (5078cc) Turbo V8 which produces a lot of torque at low RPM which allows burnouts to be performed easily, the combination of the large size of the engine and the softness of the suspension means that cornering is rather un-predictable, however, as the car can spin out in sharper turns or burn out, if the player applies gas to the car, as the car generates excess torque.

"Winner of multiple industry awards including 'Most Powerful in Class', 'Worst Handling' and 'Biggest Fireball', the Declasse Tampa brings the effortless cool of the 60s to a generation born decades too late. Time to gun the engine, stare directly into a moody sunset and live forever under a roadside grave in the middle of nowhere"
Southern San Andreas Super Autos description.

The Tampa is a two-door muscle car featured in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, The Ballad of Gay Tony, and Grand Theft Auto Online. The vehicle also appears in the opening cutscene of The Lost and Damned, but cannot be obtained. It is manufactured by Declasse in the HD Universe.

The Tampa in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas resembles a 1965-1969 Chevrolet Corvair, except it isn't rear-engined and it has a grill. It has plain steel wheels, and mismatched paint on multiple body panels, indicating it was put together with spare parts from a junkyard, making it one of the first "Beater" cars in the GTA series. These panels cannot be resprayed into a single color at Pay and Sprays, but can be done at TransFenders. However, the vehicle will retain its crooked licence plates if it's modified. The vehicle also appears to be over-scaled and in comparison to some under-scaled cars, as it looks much larger than an old compact. The Tampa is one of the gang cars used by the Da Nang Boys, a gang based in San Fierro.

Episodes From Liberty CityEdit

In both The Lost and Damned and The Ballad of Gay Tony, the Declasse Tampa is redesigned as a far more beefy muscle car that may butt heads with the Sabre GT. Parts of the exterior of Tampa is based on the 1964-1973 Ford Mustang, while the front of the Tampa resembles a 1970/1971 Dodge Dart; the roof and sides of the car are reminiscent of the 68-72 Chevrolet Nova (but with less of a fastback profile); the rear is reminiscent of a 1968 Dodge Charger. Being a muscle car, its engine sound is similar to that of a Sabre GT or Dukes. It can be seen sporting one all-over color, or with a double-stripe scheme. The paint job is based on that of a 1969 Ford Mustang Boss 302, with the stripe going across the trunk based on the super bee stripe, found on performance cars from Dodge and Plymouth since the 1960s.

The Tampa in TLAD only appears in the opening cutscene in front of the Pay 'n' Spray and is also featured in the BradyGames Strategy Guide for the episode. However, an email sent by Rockstar indicated that the car was not actually drivable in the game. the car is also not programmed to appear on streets, even if the player drives it.

The Tampa reappears in TBoGT as a fully functional car and is a common sight early in the game. While still lacking a manufacturer's badge, the car is implied through police chatter to be a Bravado model, although it is actually a Declasse model.

The Tampa has the same interior as the Sabre GT.

In GTA Online, the Tampa returns as part of the Festive Surprise 2015 update and it was released on Wednesday, December 23, 2015. Note that this car was depicted in the first day of the update (seen in a screenshot), yet the car was released 2 days later.

The car retains its design as in EFLC, except by some minor details on the interior and, by default, lacks the ram-air hood intake (which can be added at Los Santos Customs as a hood modification, however). The rims have also been changed since its last appearance to match its muscle car appearance. Both renditions of the Tampa (from TBoGT and GTA Online) have a mark saying "310GT".

PerformanceEdit

Grand Theft Auto: San AndreasEdit

The Tampa's performance is, at best, below average, with sluggish acceleration and mediocre top speed, as well as heavy steering and unstable cornering, like that of a Clover and a Sabre.

Episodes from Liberty CityEdit

The Tampa's performance, which is identical in both TLAD and TBoGT, is considerably good in terms of raw power. The car's acceleration is excellent and the car can reach a considerably high top speed. This is because the car features a 310 cui (5.1L) V8 which produces a lot of torque at low RPM which allows burnouts to be performed easily, the combination of the large size of the engine and the softness of the suspension means that cornering is rather unpredictable, however, as the car can spin out in sharper turns or burn out, if the player applies gas to the car, as the car generates excess torque. Braking is considerably impressive considering the car's weight, providing the car with shorter stopping distances.

Tampa-GTAV-RSCStats

Performace statistics on Rockstar Games Social Club.

The car's V8 engine is fairly powerful, providing enough torque to make the wheels spin on takeoff and to give it decent top speed and acceleration. The handling is relatively stable for a muscle car, helped by the very good suspension. The frame is very heavy and rather durable, but the front and rear fascias show a bit less crash durability than one would expect and the car is also not particularly resistant to gunfire. The brakes aren't very good, meaning the car requires brake discipline to corner properly. The car overall feels like the Sabre Turbo with a bit less power in exchange for better cornering.

The vehicle's engine model clearly shows a V8, with single overhead camshafts, positioned in a front-engine, rear wheel drive configuration. The engine also has a mounted cylindrical air filter by default.

TriviaEdit

GeneralEdit

HD UniverseEdit

  • The Tampa's badges are never seen in-game. However, the textures still exists in the game files.
  • A Tampa can be seen on a framed poster in the office of Beeker's Garage in Grand Theft Auto V. It appears to be a screenshot from The Ballad of Gay Tony judging by the Liberty City license plate, although the car is fitted with different rims to the TBoGT Tampa. A police scanner audio file in GTA V named "0x114AA0CA" mentions the car by name, indicating it was likely in the beta.
  • In GTA Online, the rear license plate can be broken off if the rear is damaged enough due to the inset being part of the rear bumper.
