Having only just launched let's not give the car a scored review just yet, that wouldn't be fair. But let’s continue to break down the vehicle, its stats and whether it’s worth purchasing.

You can also take a better look at the vehicle in the below video from the GTA experts at GTA Series Videos:

Currently, GTA Online players can get the Pfister Growler from Legendary Motorsport. Although as this is a new car added with the Los Santos Tuners update, it could also be made available as a prize ride vehicle in the future; so if you're not feeling flush, maybe hold off.

For those wondering, yes you can also customise the Growler at Los Santos Customs and the LS Car Meet Mod Shop.

Fans interested in taking the Pfister Growler for a spin will be interested to know that the car’s top speed on the game files is 95.60 mph (153.85 km/h).

The actual in-game speed for the Growler has yet to be tested, but we suspect that GTA racing expert Broughy1322 will be taking it through it's paces in the next 24 hours.

Is The Pfister Growler Worth It?

Let's be honest, the Pfister Growler is a pricey vehicle and looks pretty identical to most other Pfister Porsche models, so it'll need to stand out to be truly worth it.

An early review from Just Jake Club (above) paints a picture of a car that is very similar to the Comet S2, but arguably with fewer customisation options and an ever so slight step down.

This isn't to say the Pfister Growler is a bad car, far from it. It still looks great, has a good top speed and seems to handle itself in the corners pretty well.

But, in a toss-up with the Comet S2 and arguably the recently released Vectre, this feels like the car that would finish in third place.

If you have the cash to splash - and let's face it, players can earn plenty of money with the new daily exotic exports car list - we wouldn't turn down the chance to buy it, but we're also not chomping at the bit to add it to our collection just yet.
