Yes, someone, somewhere, has created all 22 Formula 1 cars for the 2016 season and YouTuber Aarav gave this year’s grid a go in GTA V. Unsurprisingly, with so many cars, it got a bit crashy and problematic, but he got some epic footage of F1 cars taking on the Los Santos streets.
YouTube channel FailRace took on the GTA V army with a Lotus 49 F1 car, which debuted in 1967 and was raced in various guises over following seasons. The 49 mod even featured the famous red and white Golf Leaf livery and it proved to be pretty good at avoiding the army (when it wasn’t upside down).
So, this one doesn’t feature the actual WRC VW livery we’ve come to love (and sadly won’t see again). But the rally version of the Polo does look like a fun car to throw around and take on the dirt roads of Los Santos.
I’ve no clue what these guys are saying, but multiplayer racing with F1 mods looks like fun. The lobby features a Red Bull RB8, Ferrari F2012 and Virgin VR-01 to name a few. It proved to be absolute chaos and a Virgin came second, so you know the performance wasn’t realistic…
The BraxXter channel brought us the stunning-looking Audi and Toyota LMP1 prototypes to the game, and I’m sure you’ll agree that they look spot on!
OK, so this isn’t a real Formula 1 car, but this Ferrari F1 concept car features monstrous curved wings, a cockpit canopy and swooping aero. It looks mean and, to be honest, downright ridiculous in the city of Los Santos.
This YouTuber doesn’t quite seem to know exactly what Mercedes AMG race car this is, but it looks to be the CLK LM raced at Le Mans in 1998. The car seems difficult to drive and a few liveries were tried out, although there’s nothing quite like the original.
The race car I didn’t expect to see as a GTA V mod would be a dragster, but it’s there. Again, it’s not the easiest car to drive around Los Santos city centre, but you’ll have fun trying!
What other awesome race car mods have you seen in GTA V?
