I wouldn't think so because this would be Mid Engine, All Wheel Drive, like an R8 and the GTA IV Banshee was Front Engine, Rear Drive. Totally different, and not to mention that this is based off of a German design, not American like the Banshee would have us think. There wasn't any sort of German Mid Engine supercar in GTA IV. Its probably an addition to the game. Bigger is better am I right?
Could be an addition but I think it might be a replacement for the Banshee because if you look at the cars from previous GTA games (Banshee, Sentinel, Infurnus, Bobcat etc.) they have all been completely re-designed for GTA IV. At the moment a Bashee replacement is probably the most likely thing. If it isn't then I'm sure it will get changed in the OP
And the in game cars are basically real life cars but because R* doesn't have a license to use IRL cars they had to change them slightly so they still look similar to the real life counterpart but not change them that much so people (who know a bit about cars) still know what they are based on. Also if you look at the handling lines for the cars in GTA IV the specs are pretty similar to the IRL version. So say the Sentinel (E46 BMW 330i)
Top Speed: Sentinel = 150 MPH, BMW 330i = 155 MPH
Weight: Sentinel = 1600 KG, BMW 330i = 1490 KG
Power: Sentinel = 230 BHP, BMW 330i = 228 BHP
