An Arachnid in GTA 2 (In-game, with lights).

The Arachnid is a car featured in Grand Theft Auto 2.


The car is a two-door softtop coupe or convertible, more or less appearing as a mid-range two-door more suited for casual driving rather than for speedy travel. Bearing "Spider" as its internal name, the Arachnid's name is a play of "spider" or "spyder", alternate terms for a convertible roadster; "arachnid" is actually an umbrella term for joint-legged invertebrate animals that includes spiders. The car's has no clear source of inspiration, although it is speculated to be based on a 1958 Lancia Auriela B24 Spider.

In terms of performance, the Arachnid is a good starter vehicle primarily suited for travel from point A to point B (in fact, the car is offered to the player as they begin at the Residential District's Jesus Saves), but is not practical for chases or timed missions. The car possesses a relatively average top speed, although the car accelerates, steers and brakes better. When crushed, the car gives the player a Shotgun in the Residential District and a Machine Gun in the Industrial District.


  • Strangely enough, the Arachnid the player starts out with in the Residential District has incredible strength as it can push even the heaviest vehicles, though this could possibly be a bug.
