Is The Vapid Retinue Mk II Worth It?

Probably not. It's a really enjoyable car but given the price tag it's not the most useful of cars.

In Sports Classic races you'll be better of using the Turismo Classic as your vehicle of choice. In straight-line speed, it's no slouch, but it's by no means the fastest either.

So bottom line, this is a nice car, with a good look, but given the cost and how you'll be better off using other vehicles for races, it's more of a collectable car for the showroom.

So don't go out of your way to buy it.
