Bravado is a car brand in Grand Theft Auto based on Dodge with small influence from Lexus. Bravado has a similar logo to Dodge's Ram as well. The brand's name is a reference to real life brand Bravado which makes bras for pregnant woman as a joke. By 2013, it appears that Bravado neared bankruptcy at one point, and was bailed out by the U.S. government using taxpayer money. This parodies the actual bailout of the auto industry in 2008. However, it was Pontiac that went bankrupt in real life. Which would be Imponte in GTA. Also Bravado seems to have a place in motorsport with 2 different NASCAR Models.
