The Most Exotic OC Wheels Ever!

Post by Piero on Sun 2 Aug 2009 - 23:37

There are plenty of exotic supercars among people's OCs, but I'll bet Andrei is the only character who drives one of these babies!



I'm trying to find a good nickname for the rest of the staff to refer to the vehicle by... I was originally going to try for something that joked about it being a mobile arsenal (Andrei often has relatively specialised weapons on hand for his charge's use that other handlers don't typically have readily available), but so far my top pick is "Light Armoured Vehicle." Since, you know, it's a Volvo station wagon. It fits. Smile

...you orta nick-name him "The Saint" =P

A friend has a Holden Apollo (read: Toyota Camry) wagon. Sure it's not a Volvo but it's the Japanese equivalent.... it's been a running joke that we should all get one and call ourselves "Land-barge Racing" Razz

So, the Land Barge?

Sweet choice of car by the way... supercars are cool, but somewhat impractical on ops.

I have a few suggestions:

1. That Bloody Tank
2. T-24 (even kinda looks the same)
3. Loli Transporter

I don't understand you guys.
You are a part of a covert government termination squad. This means you have to be able to hide in plain sight in front of the public.

Driving to the Target's area in fancy cars is not COVERT!
You would be spotted a mile away as you approach the area. Further more, the more daring idiots would steal your car while you are away on your mission! And by steal- "HEY LOUIE! THIS IS NICE!! GO GET THE TOWTRUCK!!!"

Nothing worse than returning from your termination mission and finding your car missing!

Exactly why I haven't had Walther drive yet. Probably will have him drive an Alfa Romeo during a VIP escort or something, but not for cloak and dagger stuff

A Volvo IS a covert car,they are everywhere ! so it wouldn't stand out that much,and is about as likely to be stolen as any other car !

I just followed Yu's lead, personally. Most of the handlers at the SWA drive luxury German marques. Jean has a Mercedes-Benz CL500 and Hillshire a Mercedes-Benz E350 Wagon. Raballo drove an Audi A3. Jose drives a Porsche Boxster and Marco a Fiat Coupe. Lauro had a Land Rover Discovery II.

The only handler with any "common sense" is Sandro and his smart fortwo, and I bet he bought it to attract girls, not for it's practicality.

And as to owning an exotic car, personally, I don't see the big deal. Ferrari and Lamborghini are Italian companies so their products, while not "common", certainly are not as rare as hen's teeth in Italy.

Also, I imagine Italians admire them as much as the rest of the world does, so why would they want to steal it or break into it or deface it?

The Lamborghini Gallardo has similar dimensions to a Ford Fiesta hatchback, so it's actually practical to drive around and park in a congested city like Rome. It's half a meter shorter and 20cm less wide than the V70 Estate . It's only drawback is probably a pretty poor turning radius, but then Kara's boosted arms can really wrench that steering wheel over. Wink

And when the bad guys come at you - or you come at the bad guys - having a 520hp V10 moving 1600kg is going to serve you better than a 235hp I6 moving 1800kg.

The Mercedes 500 and 300 series are fairly common, and A3s are not Luxury cars- An A6 yes, but not an A3. Boxers are common place in some neighborhoods, as Marco's Fiat is just another Fiat on the Italian Road. Land Rovers are a dime a dozen on ebay.

But, as I am saying- you are a government termination squad. You are going to be driving into various neighborhoods through Rome and the country side. Most of these neighborhoods are going to be less-well-to-do than most, so fancy or new cars are not going to be in its streets unless they are owned by the drug dealers and mafia members. The look outs of the area will spot a new or fancy car and make phone calls as to where it is going, where it stops and who steps out of it.

Nowhere in the anime or manga has a fratello team parked their cars nearby and drive away- other than Luaro, and he hid in the shadows. They were always near the pizza van, and it was the pizza van who picked up the fratello teams to/from missions. Who is going to question a pizza van?

As for engines, if you need power, you can modify the engine to give you that power, or put in a more powerful unit. But speaking out of experience of living in a poor neighborhood- you park a nice looking car in the streets to do your mission- you are going to attract a lot of attention to yourself and the car. A crowd will gather, once you step out of it, and stay about talking about your car as you do your deed. Some who are daring, will try to steal it, or if not, destroy it. I have seen it happen. In my case, because I know the people where I live- though my cars were talked about and looked over, they were never touched. They know that my anger is greater than what any police jail cell can throw at them. And those who I have caught illegally inside my cars regretted ever doing so for the rest of their lives.

Its common sense. Lambs and Fers are nice to drive, but easy to pick out in a crowded parking lot.

And a handler in a fine suit and cyborg in expensive clothes walking in a "low rent" district isn't going to attract attention?

Like Yu Aida, I choose to invoke "Author's Prerogative" and decide that for the most part, it doesn't matter that they drive an exotic car and dress sharply. And when it does matter, they "dress down" and rent a Fiat or Peugeot. Smile
