My Brother in law and I were discussing the new Custom/Retro vehicles as we were watching a sports classics race. When I saw the JB700 with the useless machine guns on the fenders I thought, hey they need to make a custom 007 version of this car since that is what it is based on anyway. Functional machine guns, rockets in the grill, and ejection seats. Oh and maybe the oil slick/tire spikes out the back too. Could make for some interesting special vehicle races with it I think.
- 98% of the player base run bulletproof tires so spikes won't do shit. - Windows isn't bulletproof so you can easily be shot out from a mile. - It isn't explosive proof and will get owned by sticky bombs. - Rockstar would probably nerf the guns to Ruiner2000 levels.
In story mode all we use the JB700 for is bashing through a few cop cars. Online already got many vehicles that vastly outperform it in either armor or weapons, hell some (Insurgent Pick-up, Turreted Limo, Rhino Tank) beats it in armor AND weapons.
Honestly I want the story mode JB700 just for the novelty of having the guns it forces you to look at, to actually be functional. I don't want it because I believe it'll be in any way effective.
