A Shark in GTA 2.

The Shark is a four-door car featured Grand Theft Auto 2.

Description Edit

Design Edit

The Shark is fashioned as a four-door sedan with an apparently 1930/1940s body design, distinguishable by its slender frontal radiator grille that stretches over to the boot lid of the car. With GRAHAM as its internal name, the car's name is implied to be inspired by Graham-Paige's 1938-1940 "Sharknose" car, which sported a shark-like front facade design. The actual design of the Shark, however, differs significantly in various respects. It could be related to the Chrysler Airflow without the continental tire and sloped rear end.

Performance Edit

Despite its unassuming appearance, the performance of the car is surprisingly excellent, with a significantly high top speed and good acceleration (with a moderate gearshift delay). The car's steering and braking are also good. When crushed, the car grants the player Molotov Cocktails in the Downtown District, or Rocket Launchers in the Industrial District.
