Depicted as a two-door open top car from the 1960s, the Blade combines elements of the 1965 and 1968 [[wp:Chevrolet Impala#1965-1970|Chevrolet Impala]]s. The rear of the car resembles that of the 1963 [[wp:Chevrolet Impala#1961-1964|Impala]], with convex areas around the taillights rather than concave. Its headlight design is similar to a 1967 [[wp:Oldsmobile Cutlass#Second-Generation Intermediate - 1964-1967|Oldsmobile Cutlass]] (which may be the origin of the Blade's name along with the [[Sabre]]). The Blade has no side rear-view mirrors.

Acceleration and speed are quite impressive, and the brakes and slick handling serve the vehicle well. Although cornering is also excellent, the one major drawback of the Blade is its major oversteer, which makes e-braking turns absolutely futile, and driving at high speeds a challenge due to the potential loss of control at the slightest disturbance. The Blade is capable of withstanding significant impact damage due to its strong frame and overall construction; it does not fare as well against explosive damage, however.

Blade is a two-door open top lowrider featured in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.

DescriptionEdit

DesignEdit

Depicted as a two-door open top car from the 1960s, the Blade combines elements of the 1965 and 1968 Chevrolet Impalas. The rear of the car resembles that of the 1963 Impala, with convex areas around the taillights rather than concave. Its headlight design is similar to a 1967 Oldsmobile Cutlass (which may be the origin of the Blade's name along with the Sabre). The Blade has no side rear-view mirrors.

Being a lowrider, its exterior and interior can be modified at Loco Low Co.. If the car is equipped with hydraulics, it can be used in lowrider competitions. While normally appearing with only an open top, the car can be modified at Loco Low Co. to feature a hard top or a convertible top, although the latter is permanently lowered.

The Blade may be found on any Mexican gang's turf, and is driven by said gang members, especially the San Fierro Rifa. It can occasionally be seen driven by non-gang affiliated civilians.

Like most lowriders in the game, the Blade offers a substantial boost to the player's sex appeal.

Performance Edit

Acceleration and speed are quite impressive, and the brakes and slick handling serve the vehicle well. Although cornering is also excellent, the one major drawback of the Blade is its major oversteer, which makes e-braking turns absolutely futile, and driving at high speeds a challenge due to the potential loss of control at the slightest disturbance. The Blade is capable of withstanding significant impact damage due to its strong frame and overall construction; it does not fare as well against explosive damage, however.

Like all lowriders, the Blade is not recommended for off road racing, as it is prone to flipping. This is due to its lowered height compared to other vehicles.
