- Not to be confused with Ghost, a boat in Grand Theft Auto III and Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories.
The V8 Ghost is a sports coupe in Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories.
The V8 Ghost is designed as a low profile coupe with sports car-like characteristics, resembling a Lotus Esprit V8 and the back of a DeLorean DMC-12 with revealed headlights, and the front of a 1995-1999 Buick Riviera. The car tends to come in one of two different color schemes, either assigning two colors for the body and trims (which is usually dark grey) or one color for both the body and trim.
In terms of performance, the V8 Ghost has a great speed which can be matched with the Stinger and the Cheetah. The car has a great handling, and has a decent durability, since it can take at least 4 major hits before smoke comes out of the hood. The only downside that its braking is rather poor.
