Now time for a tale of what I believe to now be my absolute favourite FF in the whole game. Bar none. No Eclipse could come near this, nor FTO, Integra, Civic, Mirage, Celica…because this Lantis beats them all. Wait…what?
Thing is, this Lantis is a miracle among FFs. When I picked it up for what was just for it looking good really and me therefore liking it, I decided to give it a few mods just because. Little did I know what was to follow…
The first sign of my love for this car is the crazy method of wing attachment for this thing. The wings on this car, rather than logically being attached to the back of the hatch, actually come up with holders on the edges of the rear windows. Hence why I believe you should fit it it you’re using this thing for lols. Makes it look like a hatchback from the front view of it too :lol:
I then decided to fit it with some of the cheaper mods, which didn’t make as much of a change as possible but still adjusted the car in a large way, with much power change and a decent amount of weight loss. I then fitted it with the LSD and Height-Adjustable Suspension, gave it a truly awesome sounding Semi-Racing Exhaust (with a superbly high sound at high revs and the ability to seemingly hear the turbo in the lower revs :crazy:), then went to Eiger with it. I wasn’t expecting much with the car being an FF, was expecting some understeer more than anything to begin with.
I was wrong. This car handles better than any FF I’ve driven – and this is on Sports Medium tyres, remember, and I think it actually handles better than Nian Cat Type R. Which is an achievement in itself…
And to cap it off, the engine underneath is in actual fact a 2.0 V6. Which makes this perhaps the best FF ever and a Mazda that even the 787B cannot match for awesomeness…no joke.
When you see one of these, pick it up. Trust me, your disappointment will be non-existant with this thing. Thing is…no one has ever bought one before in the first place…:(
