Since both are made by Codemasters, could it be this?

In my opinion, the green car looks more like a late '70s Monaco or Gran Fury 2-door.

Front end especially. What's everyone else think?

well each car is the same and has the same split grill and rear window. thats why I said Pontiac Grand Prix & included a picture. the bumper seems right but the rest if the car soesnt match with the late '70s Monaco or Gran Fury 2-door.

Yeah, I see what you mean. It has a slight mix of styling I suppose.

I think this also appeared in GRiD, which also had destruction derby events:

As SWF told, this is Chevrolet Monte Carlo.

Even if this is the Jupiter Eagleray Mk.V from GRiD,(Correct?)it's undergone a few changes. It's also been renamed. It's Jupiter Del Rio now.

A new revamped version of the "Jupiter Eagle Ray MK.5" used the demolition events in Race Driver Grid.
Basicly same mesh with a few changes:
- cuts in the fenders for the wheel arches are not so high resulting in a more production/street car ride height
- inverted trunk
- cheap looking rollcage as opposed to the perfect rollcage and door reinforcement seen in GRID
- no bullbar and front bumper moved forward
- new grubby/rusty textures making use of a more advanced set of shaders

whether that makes this a monte carlo as the former version of this model is, or if this makes the former a Grand prix, I don't know.
