GTA IV vehicles – 4 Door Sedans & Saloons

grand_theft_auto_ivadmiralThe Admiral’ is the old Mercedes-Benz W123 analogue seen in Grand Theft Auto: Vice CityGrand Theft Auto: San AndreasGrand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories and Grand Theft Auto IV. In GTA San Andreas, it appears to have a little 90’s “makeup”. Surprisingly, it is front-wheel drive, which is the biggest difference from the original W123. The Admiral is the first car available in Vice City. The Dundreary Admiral is a 4-door Luxury Sedan, easily found in Bohan or Dukes, which appears in Grand Theft Auto IV. It serves as the base chassis for the Stretch in GTA IV. It can be very useful in a few missions like “Death Row” or other challenging pursuits . Although that admiral is undestrcutible ,there’s a few weaknesses : First ,the front window is breakable . Then the tyres can blow and the car explode when she’s got roof on the floor ,like all other cars . Take care of that car because the game often tries to make ot disappear when you have the back turned!

grand_theft_auto_ivchavosThe Dinka Chavos is a 4 door sedan found only in Grand Theft Auto IV.For some reason it resembles a 1994-2004 Peugeot 406, a French car not sold in the United States (the front also looks like a 1996-1998 Nissan Silvia (S14) but the Peugeot looks a lot closer); the sides look like a Acura TSX; the back looks loosely based on that of a 1999-2005 Volkswagen Jetta. It can be found in the Hove Beach area of Liberty City. The Chavos allows the player to drift it and easily control it. It’s speed is pretty reasonable and it is somewhat durable too. The Chavos is manufactured by Dinka.

grand_theft_auto_ivcognoscenti3The Cognoscenti is a luxury sedan exclusive to Grand Theft Auto IV. It is based on the Maybach 62 whilst the whole body, two tone paint, resembles a Maybach 62 S sedan, while the front is reminiscent of a Bentley Continental GT or Flying Spur. The vehicle is manufactured by Enus. Cognoscenti means a connoisseur or an expert in a certain field, usually fine arts.  The Cognoscenti is one of the larger cars in the game, with an exceptionally long body for a sedan. The weight and length of the car make it more of a vanity vehicle than one that can be used reliably for missions; its speed and handling are lower than other sedans found throughout the city. However, it has a powerful engine and rear wheel drive, so slides and oversteer can be achieved. Because of its size, the police will designate it as a limousine should you commit a crime while in the car.  Stevie will ask you to steal a Cognoscenti parked in Alderney City. While doing James Pegorino’s missions two will occasionally spawn: one outside of his mansion and another inside the garage. A pearl white painted Cognoscenti can be stolen outside Gracie Ancelotti’s home after you complete here random character mission. Sometimes when you imput the cheat to spawn a Cognoscenti, a pearl white one will appear.

grand_theft_auto_ivdf8-901

The Imponte DF8-90 is a vehicle in Grand Theft Auto IV. It is a four-door sedan, and is fairly uncommon in traffic. This car has a highly debatable design but it looks a lot like a Saturn Ion (most of the chassis (the rear doors aren’t exactly a good match though) and headlights), the roof with a blacktop gimmick in some occasions probably inspired from theEagle Talon/Mitsubishi Eclipse (however they only have two doors instead of four), the bottom of the front has some influence from a Pontiac G6, the taillights looks somewhat like that of a 1991–1995 Saturn SL1 combined with a 1992-1999Pontiac Bonneville. The black strips on the sides could be form various cars. There are two different motor options for the DF8-90, a V6 SPORT, or a V8 TURBO, you have to zoom in on the rear to see which one you have. A parked DF8-90 can be found in a parking lot under the train tracks in the Hove Beach area as part of a stolen car delivery mission for Stevie. It sells for approximately $5,500 at Stevie’s garage in Bohan.Saturn S-Series.

dilettanteThe Karin Dilettante is a hybrid vehicle made as kind of a joke from Grand Theft Auto IV. It is based on the 2004-2009 Toyota Prius, with headlights from a 2006 – 07 Citroen C4. According to an radio advertisement in the game, the Dilettante is worth $39,999 brand new, at least $20,000 more than the real life Prius is worth. The word Dilettante means a dabbler in fine arts, or a connoisseur. It can also mean amateurish or superficial. The vehicle is manufactured by Karin. It has later been suspected that Rockstar named the car (and company) after a video game violence researcher, Karen Dill, but it hasn’t been confirmed. As being an electric hybrid,it is slow. It takes more than ten seconds to reach it’s top speed, which means making a getaway in this car is not recommended. It is FWD, so it can make 180 turns and getaway swerves easily.

emperor_2The Emperor is a 4 door car from GTA San Andreas and GTA IV. In GTA San Andreas, the Emperor is based on an early-90’s Infiniti Q45. In GTA IV, it’s based off of the ’77-’79 Cadillac Deville or Fleetwood (with a flattened front end and no hood ornament). It is commonly found in San Fierro, and is used in Wear Flowers in Your Hair, the first mission in San Fierro where CJ hiresDwaine and Jethro to work in the garage in Doherty. It is also found in Grand Theft Auto IV. Acceleration and speed are somewhat disappointing, as are handling and braking. The engine sounds as though it is a large V6 or V8, but is apparently incapable of delivering substantial power to the bulky, rear-drive vehicle. Using the E-brake around corners almost guarantees fishtailing, making this car almost useless when driving at high speeds. It is, however, a sturdy vehicle, and does a fairly good job of absorbing damage. In GTA IV, it is based on a ’77-’79 Cadillac Deville or Fleetwood Cadillac Deville or Fleetwood. It features a “beater” version of the Emperor, with junky paint finishes, broken seats and old wheels and tires.

esperanto

The Esperanto made its first appearance in Grand Theft Auto III, and its design has remained almost exactly the same in the following games, with only minor styling changes (mostly to the taillights and rear bumper). A modified variant (with official taxi ID plaques) is driven by Niko Bellic’s cousin, Roman and is simply called Roman’s Taxiwhen getting into that particular Esperanto. When free cab rides from Roman’s garage are unlocked, an Esperanto will be sent to pick Niko up. It changes to a Cavalcade after Roman purchases a penthouse in Algonquin. It can be obtained in Roman’s missions after you complete them, however, you can’t steal the one Roman sends you to pick you up as it’s doors are locked. The Esperanto was one of the first cars to appear in any media in the run-up to GTA IV’s release. It has often been mistakenly referred to as an “Albany” due to the fact that the word is conspicuously emblazoned on the grille. In actuality,Albany is the “make” of the car (other vehicles are seen with the Albany nameplate on their decklids and logos, such as thePrimo), while Esperanto is the model. In GTA IV, after collecting all thirty cars for Stevie he agrees to purchase cars from Niko Bellic, with the Esperanto fetching $1,800. In GTA IV the Esperanto is extremely slow, so it’s not recommended for the ultimate getaway as it’s acceleration is very poor. It’s handling is quite good but that’s because of it’s weight as a four door sedan. It can really take a heap of damage though.

grand_theft_auto_ivferociThe Bravado Feroci is a vehicle in Grand Theft Auto IV based of the first generation of the Lexus GS (1991-1996) with headlights from a second generation Lexus ES, though the Feroci is manufactured by the game’s rendition of Dodge. No current Dodge model looks similar to the Feroci. FlyUS, the fictional airline featured in GTA IV, have some Feroci vehicles in their company livery, and they can only be found at Francis International Airport in Dukes. A common Feroci which has black rims as it’s only modification. It can be usually found anywhere. A more highly modified version called the Feroci JDM VIP(though it still says Feroci if the player enters it) can be rarely be found but sometimes can be spawned around The Exchange or Chinatown area in Algonquin.It’s changes include a yellow dangling model on the mirror,gold rims, a chin spoiler and body kit, and it only comes in black.(although if the player resprays it, it can be painted in a different colour). The JDM label adds proof that the Feroci is a Japanese car. It is also interesting to note that the name Feroci may be rearranged to spell Cefiro, possibly a reference to the Nissan Cefiro whose 1995-1998 and 1999-2003 models also share a similar profile.

hakumaicq8The Dinka Hakumai is a vehicle found in Grand Theft Auto IV and is manufactured by Dinka. The Hakumai is heavily influenced by the third generation Honda Accord. While some might argue a design influence from the 2-door Prelude (however there already was a Prelude-like vehicle called the Previon), the body style more closely resembles the 4-door Accord with slightly modified taillights and front turn signals. The Hakumai spawns in Little BayBohan, and in Steinway,Dukes. It features hidden headlights, much like the ZR-350. The Hakumai is suprisingly fast (but not durable), especially as the badge on the back of the car says it has a 1.4 litre (4-cylinder) engine, like the Blista Compact. Apparently the name of the car means rice in Japanese, it might be a reference to the phrase ‘rice burner’. Accords are popular cars for tuners, and thus may be the source of the name. There is also a modded Hakumai that is driven by the Albanian Mob with a red paint job, spoiler, and aftermarket exhaust. It can usually be found late at night in Little Bay.

grand_theft_auto_ivingotThe Ingot is a car available only in Grand Theft Auto IV. It is a compact station wagon looking much like a fourth generation Volkswagen Jetta, or its boxy European counterpart, the Volkswagen Bora station wagon. After collecting all thirty cars for Stevie he agrees to purchase cars from Niko Bellic, with the Ingot fetching $1,000. The Ingot has a high-pitched engine noise and low reliability, suggesting a V-5 engine or V-6 (Volkswagen is known for introducing the V-5 engine and a version of the V-6, the VR-6; the fourth gen VW Jetta station wagon has a 2.3l V-5 engine and 2.8l VR-6 as one of its options, which both have less than 200hp). The engine in-game may stop working after a few major crashes. The Ingot isn’t very fast, making it a poor choice for car chases. A special R type version can occasionally be found. It’s an Ingot with removed badging and new grill, a small spoiler with a small body kit, and candy red paint. It mostly can be found in the Hove Beach area, as it’s driven by Russian Mafia members. The Ingot can frequently be found near Roman‘s taxi firm in Broker.

grand_theft_auto_ivintruderIn GTA IV the Intruder is made by the brandname Karin. After collecting all thirty cars for Stevie he agrees to purchase cars from Niko Bellic, with the Intruder fetching $2,500. The Intruder’s design seems to resemble a early ’90s’ Subaru Legacy with the taillights similar to those of a 1982–1986 Toyota Camry (and the area around the back wheels is also similar). In GTA IV, it resembles the 2002-2006 Infiniti Q45. Acceleration and speed are highly lacking, despite the intimidating growl of its engine, likely at least a V6, judging by the size of the engine compartment. Being rear-drive helps, but the dismal torque is barely enough to climb a steep hill. Handling and braking are surprisingly agile, and seem wasted on the weak engine. The GTA IV version is much more powerful and sports a 4.3L (according to the AutoEroticar website) V8 with lots of torque, making it an excellent car for chases and quick getaways. In GTA IV, there is a special variant model of the Intruder. Named the Intruder VX(by the badging)it has lots of changes to it. They range from a special Candy Red paint job, a body kit with side skirts,and a chin spoiler. This can rarely be found, but mostly can be spawned in the City Hall, The Exchange, and Chinatown districts.

lokus

The Lokus is a vehicle exclusively available in Grand Theft Auto IV that resembles a second generation Lexus GS with the front of a 2003-2005 Saturn L300. It is rarely found around the city, but may be seen in Alderney. Sometimes it can be found driven around the Northwood Heights Bridge on the Bohan side. In the mission Meltdown, where Niko has to retrieve some diamonds from Luca and his mates and ends up chasing them in a speeding car chase, Luca and his buddies escape in a white Lokus (until they end up crashing in Middle Park).

marbelleThe Marbelle is a vehicle exclusively available in Grand Theft Auto IV and it is produced by the brand Willard. It strongly resembles a 1981–1989 Lincoln Town Car. But the front bumper, windows and roof pillars are from the (North American) 1975-1980 Ford Granadas, and the grille closer to the 1981–1982 Granadas.The name may come from the Granada since they are both places in Spain (Marbelle is not quite Marbella though). It has a normally powered engine like the Esperanto. The brakes are good because the car has ABS. The wheels don’t lock-up during the braking. The Marbelle is a bit higher than the other old sedans, so its no problem to drive over curbs. After collecting all thirty cars for Stevie he agrees to purchase cars from Niko Bellic, with the Marbelle fetching $1,500.

grand_theft_auto_ivmeritThe Merit is one of the few luxury sedans in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas and Grand Theft Auto IV. It is a good choice because it is a four door, has balanced out handling, acceleration, and speed. It can be upgraded at TransFender, in many aspects including Nitro. It’s first appearance is in Grand Theft Auto San Andreas and is based on the Mazda 929. In Grand Theft Auto IV, the Merit is redesigned with a similar look to the 2000-2005 Chevrolet Impala with the back seemingly inspired by a mid 90’s BMW M3 (also slightly similar to a 1992-1995 Honda Civic) and the front bumper could be derived from a variety of cars. This car is also the standard base for some police and taxi cars, with the other older cars in the game using a look similar to the standard Ford Crown Victoria. The Merit is manufactured by Declasse. In GTA IV, after collecting all thirty cars for Stevie he agrees to purchase cars from Niko Bellic, with the Merit fetching $1,800.

oracle1The Ubermacht Oracle XS (it is called Oracle when entered) is a four-door luxury sedan exclusively found in Grand Theft Auto IV. It is based off of a modern BMW 7 Series sedan. It is central to one of Brucie‘s missions, “Easy As Can Be.” Specifically, it resembles the E65/E66 versions of the 7 series (2001-present). The front is based more on the E66 or the facelifted 7 series (2006-present), specifically the 745i. However, the car lacks the distinctive dual grille all BMW cars have. The back is somewhat based on the E65 (2001-2005) version of the 7 series. It is also speculated that had the Sentinel not been changed to resemble an M3, the Oracle’s model would be what it would resemble. It is fast, possibly sporting a V-12 or a supercharged V8. Durability is medium, owing to its luxury construction, and it has great handling. There is a slight variant on the Oracle driven by members of the McReary Mob, known as the Oracle XS (although the game still says “Oracle”). It is painted dark green with front and rear bumper kits and sport mesh grill. As well as no markings indicating its maker or name. These versions are located in SteinwayDukes.

grand_theft_auto_ivpinnacleThe Pinnacle is a 4-Door sedan in Grand Theft Auto IV, which is manufactured by Annis. It is based off the sixth generation Nissan Maxima. The back end looks similar to a Ford Five Hundred; the area around the back license plate is arranged similarly to those on many older Infinitis and Mitsubishis. Being based mostly off a Maxima, the name could have come from the fact that a Pinnacle is the top of a mountain therefore being the max height, then realting the Maxima. Though it is only seen in rare places, it is a good looking car.

pmp_600-1The Schyster PMP 600 is a 4-door car featured only in Grand Theft Auto IV. It closely resembles a Chrysler 300C, though with much less head room because of a chop top. The front, especially the bumper, seems inspired by the Bentley Zagato. The car’s brand, Schyster, is a spoof on Chrysler; also, PMP is a spoof on pimp, while the 600 number is double that of 300. The engine is a 600ci V8 ‘Semi’, which explains the ‘600’ in the car’s name. The ‘Semi’ engine in the PMP 600 further knocks off the Chrysler 300C’s ‘Hemi’ engine. The car handles well through corners reasonably well, and its acceleration isn’t too bad. However its top speed is moderate because of the heavy weight of the car. A rare sport edition of this can be occasionally been seen driven around; its changes are a dark brown or plum paint job, a sport mesh grill in the front, and a small spoiler attached to the trunk. There’s one in the alley by the Exchange District Bank in Algonquin. All around you will find them, as they are a very common and popular car in Liberty City, especially in Algonquin. The modded PMP 600 that is often driven by wiseguys can be commonly found in Westdyke and Leftwood, but it rarely can be found in Algonquin, however sometimes you can find it around Little Italy.

premier_tThe Premier is a 4-door sedan available in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas and Grand Theft Auto IV. It is the civilian version of the Taxi and the Police Car in GTA San Andreas, but not in GTA IV, and a cousin of the bulkier Elegant, once again, only in GTA San Andreas. In GTA IV the Declasse manufactured Premier resembles a Chevrolet Cobalt LS Sedan (has different taillights compared to the SS version). The taillights are styled from a design, called Altezza lights, that are more popular in imported cars in the United States than domestics. The front bumper might be a result of things being rearranged (as Rockstar has done with other vehicles). According to the badging, it is powered by a 4 litre engine, probably a V6. Acceleration, speed, and handling are all quite impressive, while the sturdiness and bulk of the chassis render the Premier capable of withstanding heavy damage, making this front-engine, rear-drive beast simply one of the best passenger vehicles in the game. The strong engine, responsive handling, and sturdy frame also make the Premier an ideal car for performing the PIT maneuver and for ramming other vehicles, hence its use as a police car.

grand_theft_auto_ivpresidenteThe Albany Presidente is a four-door luxury sedan found in Grand Theft Auto IV. It is based off of a Cadillac CTS. After collecting all thirty cars for Stevie he agrees to purchase cars from Niko Bellic, with the Presidente fetching $2,500. The main version has a 4.5l V10 engine. There is also a “SPORT” SuperCharged V-10 version driven by the Korean Mobthat has a different front grille with a supercharged badge, black rims, and a rear spoiler, based on the Cadillac CTS-V. It is a relatively fast car, but suffers from oversteer due to it’s RWD drivetrain. There is also a jet black version of the Presidente in which it has black hub caps but still has the same speed as a normal Presidente. It can often be seen near City HallAlgonquin.

 

grand_theft_auto_ivprimoIn GTA IV, the Primo is another vehicle from manufacturer “Albany“, the maker of the Esperanto which is what Roman’s Taxi is based on. The Primo is clearly based on 1987–1993 Cadillac Allante but with a four door design and the roof seems like its of another car (probably a 1989-1996 Buick Century). There are two different styles of Primo. There is a standard middle-of-the-road sedan, and there is also one with a special “Supercharged V8” badge on its decklid. The supercharged Primo is lowered with added ground effects and a spoiler. It always comes in maroon, and is the vehicle of choice for members of theSpanish Lords (though it can be repainted at a Pay ‘n’ Spray in the standard Primo colors). However, despite the ‘Supercharged V8’ badge, it has the same performance as the regular Primo, and sounds just like the regular Primo – nothing like a V8, which leads us to believe that the effects are purely cosmetic. A black version without body kits but with gold rims and grill can be spotted, however it’s rare for the player to encounter it. After collecting all thirty cars for Stevie, he agrees to purchase cars from Niko Bellic, with the Primo fetching $1,800.

schafter

The Benefactor Schafter 6.5 supercharged V-12 is a luxury 4-door sedan and is available only in Grand Theft Auto IV. It is based on the Mercedes Benz S65.

The Schafter could be considered one of the most luxurious cars in the game, along with the Cognoscenti and Oracle XS. The Schafter is probably the second most luxurious car in the game, with the Cognoscenti being first and Oracle XS being third. In terms of speed, the Schafter is much faster than the Cognoscenti and Oracle XS because of its V12 engine. Being heavy, its acceleration is not spectacular, but still pretty good for a luxury saloon, however the powerful 605hp V12 can propel the car to a high top speed, and its rear-drive layout makes it good in low speed corners. Their is a tuned version of the Schafter, along the lines of Mercedes Benz’s “AMG” It comes in silver or black and has black rims, sport body kit, and no front emblem, it is based on the Mercedes Benz S65 “AMG” models. This version of the Schafter can be found in Hove Beach being driven by the Russian Mafia.

grand_theft_auto_ivstretch1The Stretch is a four-door stretch limousine featured in all of the Grand Theft Auto games so far. The Stretch’s design varies slightly in each game, being modelled after the most common American limousuine of the period; in GTA III, the Stretch resembles a third generation Lincoln Town Car. In GTA: Vice City, it resembles a seventh generation Cadillac DeVillelimousuine, in GTA: San Andreas, it resembles the second generation Lincoln Town Car but the back lights hint a Cadillac. In GTA IV, it is the limo version of the Admiral manufactured by Dundreary. Being a large, multi-passenger vehicle with an extended drive axle due to its length, this vehicle is slow and lumbering despite its powerful V8 and rear-wheel drivetrain. It’s length makes it difficult to maneuver through tight spaces and around corners at high speed, and it’s suspension is too soft, contributing to body roll. Its ability to absorb damage is not particularly impressive either, making the Stretch more of a specific-use vehicle, or a status-grabber, and a generally poor choice for use as primary transportation, and it is not good for evading cops. Unfortunately, it can only fit three passengers, so in GTA San Andreas, you can’t use it for taking lots of gang members around.

grand_theft_auto_ivsultanRevealed to be manufactured by Karin, the GTA IV Sultan draws upon the Japanese import styling of the previous Sultan. Although no longer resembling one car, design elements from Subaru remain, along with Lexus IS300 inspired headlights, and a Mistubishi Lancer Evolution IX rear end. As a whole, the Sultan resembles a Subaru Legacy more than any other real car, which is unusual, given that the original San Andreas Sultan was a clone of the Subaru Impreza; an altogether sportier car in the Subaru lineup. Despite having grown into a larger mid-size sedan since the Sultan brand was introduced in 1992, the modern day Sultan remains fast, grippy and engaging, due to a powerful V6 and four wheel drive system. Whilst many similarly sized sedans offer similar straight line performance, the added stability of the Sultan allows fast cornering, making it a perfect choice for races or getaways. After collecting all thirty cars for Stevie he agrees to purchase cars from Niko Bellic, with the Sultan fetching $3,500.

vincentThe Vincent resembles a BMW E34 5 Series in San Andreas, even though the BMW 5 series is much narrower than the Vincent. In in GTA IV, it more closely resembles a 1999-2003 Mitsubishi Galant from the front and a 2nd generation Kia Optima from the rear, with the only difference being that the Vincent is rear-wheel drive, while the Galant is front-wheel drive. it is manufactured by Maibatsu in GTA IV, and has the badging “Maibatsu Vincent LX2007”. Acceleration and speed are competent, but unimpressive. The throaty engine sounds like a V6 and delivers sufficient torque, but this is unfortunately wasted on the front-wheel drivetrain. Handling is mushy, and the car suffers from understeer, but the brakes are quite good. The overall performance of the car is inferior to that of the Sentinel, which is also based off of another BMW model. However, the Vincent is relatively well-constructed, enabling it to withstand a fair amount of damage. GTA IV features two versions of the Vincent. The LX2007 version occurs frequently and sometimes more often then the normal version. The LX2007 has a hood scoop, a small spoiler and side skirts. There is no performance difference between the two. After collecting all thirty cars for Stevie he agrees to purchase cars from Niko Bellic, with the Vincent fetching $2,000.

washingtonThe Washington is a 4 door sedan found in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City,Grand Theft Auto: San AndreasGrand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories andGrand Theft Auto IV. It is available in many colors throughout the games except black in GTA Vice City, which is reserved for only the FBI Washington. However, the X-Box version of the game spawns the cars only in white. It can be found fairly widely throughout the map in GTA Vice City and GTA San Andreas. In Vice City and San Andreas, the Washington bears a similarity to a Sixth GenerationLincoln Continental but the front and back look more like a Lincoln Mark VII. In GTA IV, the Washington is now a clone of a current Lincoln Town Car L or the lengthened version of the regular town car. The headlights and grille have a slight resemblance to a 2008-present Ford Taurus.  The GTA IV version is one of the cars Stevie requests for his Car Theft missions. Acceleration and speed are surprisingly satisfying for this large vehicle. The rear-drive Washington is powered by a V8, and handling and braking match the engine’s power quite well, although fishtailing is common. Furthermore, the body is sturdy and can withstand a good deal of damage, making this an ideal drive-by vehicle. It’s weight also makes it good for ramming cars out of the way, for example a police road block.

800px-willardgta-ivThe Willard is a four-door car that is available in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, as well as in Grand Theft Auto IV. The car was featured in the third trailer for GTA IV, Move Up, Ladies, as a chase car driven by loan sharks. It resembles a 1988–1993 Dodge Dynasty in San Andreas, and in GTA IV it strongly resembles a 1986 Buick LeSabre with nothing appearing altered except the the taillights (which might be influenced by another car). In San Andreas, the car has an average top speed, but it suffers from understeer. In San Andreas, the car is usually found in Los Santos. In GTA IV, it’s usually found around Dukes, but rarely you can encounter it. Willard also happens to be the car company that makes the Elegance (possibly the Elegant), but for some unknown reason, this particular vehicle is simply called a “Willard.” Some vehicles in GTA IV can be seen with license plate frames that say “Liberty City Willard,” suggesting they were purchased at the city’s Willard dealership. The dealer is based off of real life companies Buick and Mercury. The outside of the logo is somewhat shaped like the Hudson Motors logo and the squiggle inside may be inspired from the ones on the classic Chrysler emblem (or winged logo) but the resemblance isn’t very strong
