The Sabre Turbo is a muscle car featured in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, and Grand Theft Auto V.

Description

Design

Other than the presence of a racing stripe, the Sabre Turbo appears largely the same as a standard Sabre (based on a 1970 Oldsmobile Cutlass). The GTA Vice City rendition of this vehicle appears only in red and striped in white color (which is fixed to the car's texture) whereas in GTA Vice City Stories, it appears in several colors, while retaining a racing stripe that is constantly light green. Also, while the GTA Vice City rendition shares the same rim design as a regular Sabre, the GTA Vice City Stories' rendition features wire rims instead of the regular Sabre's sports rims.

A variant in GTA Vice City Stories used by the Cholos gang, the Cholo Sabre, is also comparable to the game's Sabre Turbo.

Performance

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 turbocharged engines.

In GTA Vice City Stories, its performance traits are similar to that of the Polaris V8.

Variants

A lowrider-spec Sabre Turbo was added as one of the vehicles from the GTA Online Lowriders: Custom Classics. It is distinguishable by the added hydraulics and a custom lowrider rims. It also had more aesthetics modifications than the standard Sabre Turbo.
