Being a lowrider, the Savanna can be used in the [[Lowrider Challenge|lowrider competion]] if hydraulics are equipped. It is a four-door, making it rather suitable for drive-bys and transporting gang members. Like the [[Hermes]], it cannot be blown up by shooting the fuel cap, as it does not have a visible fuel cap.

The Savanna is based on a [[wp:Chevrolet Biscayne|1963 Chevrolet Biscayne]] with the top portion of the grille altered to resemble that of a 1964 Biscayne (in [[Beta Releases|beta]] screenshots, however, the grille isn't altered, completely resembling the '63's grille). The rear is almost identical to '60s Biscaynes. While normally appearing with only an open top, the car can be modified in [[Loco Low Co.]] to feature a hard top or a soft convertible top.

Description

Design

Savanna-GTASA-side

Side view of two Savannas modified at Loco Low Co. to feature two forms of tops: "Hard Top" (above) and "Soft Top" (below).

Being a lowrider, the Savanna can be used in the lowrider competion if hydraulics are equipped. It is a four-door, making it rather suitable for drive-bys and transporting gang members. Like the Hermes, it cannot be blown up by shooting the fuel cap, as it does not have a visible fuel cap.

The Savanna is based on a 1964 Chevrolet Impala with the rear resembling a 1963 Impala. In beta screenshots, however, the front of the Savanna resembles the '63 model. While normally appearing with only an open top, the car can be modified in Loco Low Co. to feature a hard top or a soft convertible top.

Grove Street Families uses the Savanna as one of their gang cars.

Performance

The Savanna's main merit is its speed, with quite good acceleration to complement this. However, cornering is poor due to the car being heavy and bulky. Like the Blade, the car's brakes are very sensitive, giving it very responsive stopping power at any speed. However, the driver risks spinning out in handbrakes turn.

Cesar's Savanna

Cesar Vialpando owns a bright red Savanna with red seats. Hydraulics are a randomity in the missions it appears in, as with all Savannas. The license plate reads "LVA4L", referring to the Varrios Los Aztecas, Cesar's gang.

Modifications
