The Extravagant is a Rare vehicle in Crash of Cars.
Often there are places to spend funds. It is one of the many decent choices.
The Extravagant is a vintage convertible or coupe with a very long hood, which was popular in the 1930s to contain large inline engines, often inline 8s or even more. It has round headlights, blacked out rectangular 'flute' grills, and flowing wheel wells. It also has a silver bumper attached to the front of the car. A spare 'whitewall' wheel is seen near the doors.
The Extravagant is among the faster 6-health vehicles in the game; while the speed itself would already be considered to be a merit among 6-health vehicles, it is also matched with a decent rate of acceleration, unlike some other 6-health vehicles of similar speeds like Fire Truck or even the Earn to Die Truck. The Extravagant also greatly benefits from its very small hitbox relative to most 6-health vehicles, such as the aforementioned Fire Truck or Earn to Die Truck, with only the Mini Tank being smaller. With decent mobility and small hit box along with a large health pool, The Extravagant a good choice in general for passive play.
However, its numb handling and considerably average mobility when compared to the other cars in general, rather than only compared to 6-health vehicles, greatly limits the potential of The Extravagant in aggressive gameplay compared to lower-health alternatives such as Hot Rod. Its rate of acceleration, while acceptable among 6-health cars, is below average when compared to 4 or 5-health cars, leading to The Extravagant struggling to catch cars within or below its own speed tier. Regarding handling, The Extravagant is completely incapable of 'handbrake-turning' or other evasive manoeuvrers, and it also has a rather large turning circle. This makes it difficult for The Extravagant to fight cars that are more agile than it. Also, its slow handling in conjunction with a rather long body compared to more compact cars can make it difficult to manage in tight spots. Thus, when playing with The Extravagant, one must keep their composure at all costs; with its high speed, small hitbox and large health pool, The Extravagant excels in passive gameplay when kept peacefully collecting crowns, but it is at a massive disadvantage in hectic combat situations due to its large turning radius and mobility penalties inherent to 6-health vehicles.
To minimize those situations, careful shield utilization is key; as The Extravagant cannot turn around fast enough to punish pursuers, it would be most beneficial to exclusively rely on duration modifiers. Having a Teleport handy can also help escape dangerous zones. The Extravagant can also benefit from Freeze Cannon or Railgun's crowd control properties to drive potential enemies away. It would also be most beneficial to play in maps with large, open-ended areas without much twists or turns, such as Moon or Skygarden, to reduce the likelihood of getting stuck in a dangerous state.
