A recent update to GTA Online has added a brand new car to the game’s lineup. But despite the ride costing just fifty dollars shy of $2,000,000 worth of in-game currency, there’s something a little off about it. You see, the Itali is one hell of a ride, but for all the wrong reasons.
Initially, things were looking good; quite literally. But once the glitz of the sleek lines and attention to detail had worn off, many players were keen to share the news that at high speed it was nigh on impossible to drive. The issue is further exaggerated by the undulating nature of Los Santos, which sees the supercar trying to become a high-flyer.
It turns out that as it negotiates the bumps, it loses its stability and is left looking, and feeling, as though the entire suspension is made of gummy bears. There’s one word in particular that is getting batted around, and that is ‘bouncy’. And that’s not something you tend to look for in a car…
Now, it’s only fair to say that there are experienced drivers who are cruising around like Lewis Hamilton. But they are definitely in the minority.
In the meantime, others are debating whether they’re happy to part with a couple of million on a stunning motor in the hope that Rockstar fix the handling. It’s a hard sell, to say the least, although it does look good. We can’t help but feel, however, they’d be better off splashing their cash on a Pegassi or Ocelot. Or waiting a bit, at least. £20-ish is a lot to drop on something that’s mostly unsuited to the terrain.
