The Yardie Lobo is a lowrider with functional hydraulic suspensions, leopard skin seats and sporty rims, as well as a pair of pink fuzzy dice hung from the rear-view mirror, and red interior door panels. It also appears with only a red body color and a yellow soft top in GTA III and GTA Liberty City Stories, or a green body, orange body or blue body with a yellow top in GTA Advance. The vehicle resembles a [http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/9/94/73_Impala.jpg fifth generation Chevrolet Impala] and the taillights seem closer to a [http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/5/50/65_Impala_SS_convt.jpg 1965 Impala]. Like other sedan and station wagon-based gang cars in the GTA Liberty City Stories, the game's Lobo also gains a sport car-like engine sound, implying it is a high-performance car.

The Yardie Lobo (known simply as the Yardie in Grand Theft Auto Advance) is a gang car that appears in Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto Advance and Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories. As its name implies, the vehicle is driven by Uptown Yardies gang members within their territories.

Design Edit

The Yardie Lobo is a lowrider with functional hydraulic suspensions, leopard skin seats and sporty rims, as well as a pair of pink fuzzy dice hung from the rear-view mirror, and red interior door panels. It also appears with only a red body color and a yellow soft top in GTA III and GTA Liberty City Stories, or a green body, orange body or blue body with a yellow top in GTA Advance. The vehicle resembles a fifth generation Chevrolet Impala and the taillights seem closer to a 1965 Impala. Like other sedan and station wagon-based gang cars in the GTA Liberty City Stories, the game's Lobo also gains a sport car-like engine sound, implying it is a high-performance car.

The Lobo earns the distinction of being the only vehicle with functional hydraulic suspensions in GTA III, similar to the Voodoo in GTA Vice City and Esperanto in GTA Liberty City Stories. Introduced in GTA III, the Lobo is also the first vehicle in the GTA series with hydraulic suspensions. "Lobo" is Portuguese and Spanish for wolf.

Similar to the Cartel Cruiser, Forelli Exsess, and Sindacco Argento, it does not have a non-gang variant, but its closest non-gang counterparts are the Esperanto and Idaho.

Performance Edit

The Lobo's performance is described as average, possessing slightly above average speed, moderate steering sensitivity but a susceptibility to tailspins during high speed corning. Having only two doors, the Lobo can only seat two.

Locations Edit

GTA III and GTA Liberty City Stories
GTA Advance
