Saints Row is back after nearly a decade – we built a real-life car from the game to celebrate

After close to a decade, Saints Row is back.

The latest instalment of the iconic open-world game puts you in the fictional city of Santo Ileso in the American Southwest.

There, you’ll embark on a life of crime as the future Boss of The Saints – a self-made criminal venture looking to build its empire in the city.

With your three sidekicks by your side, you’ll take on other criminal outfits as you battle to control the city.

Essentially, it’s the story of a start-up company – except the business it’s doing is crime.

The game is out today, August 23, and you can visit to get a copy for yourself.

However, Supercar Blondie’s pro gamer Domi got an exclusive preview of the new Saints Row ahead of time, which you watch below.

With the biggest world of any Saints Row game yet, its sandbox environment will allow you to shoot, drive, and fly your way to the top.

And of course, there’s a range of epic cars to drive from emergency services vehicles to off-road buggies and more.


Car customization in Saints Row

Car customization has always been a big part of the Saints Row franchise.

That’s why this new game features some of the craziest mods the game has offered yet.

To see just what’s possible, Domi and Alex teamed up to design the most insane modified car they could.

They chose the Phoenix, which looks a little bit like a Ford Mustang, and fitted it with a massive wing and some tough off-road bumpers.

Then, with some help from Sergi, they bought a real Mustang and fitted it with identical modifications.

Yes, that’s right – the Supercar Blondie team built a real-life Saints Row car.

With its cut-out roof, lifted suspension, off-road tires, and huge side exit exhausts it’s a crazy thing.

And all of that and more can be fitted to your cars in the new game.
