Taipan: GTA V Statistics
- Overall 78.48
Note: The above statistics are coming from the Rockstar official website.
Human-led design is a thing of the past. This is what happens when you fire your R&D department and leave a supercomputer alone with a textbook on computational fluid dynamics and some provocative anime. End result: to drive a Taipan is to put yourself at the mercy of a ruthless, inhuman dedication to pure speed and improbable curves. Be afraid.
