The Idaho is a coupé featured in all games in the 3D Universe, with the exception of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.



Depicted as a large, two-door 1970s coupe with a vinyl roof, the Idaho's styling most notably reflects a fourth generation Buick Riviera. The front more closely resembles a 1975/'76 Chevy Caprice (with added turning signals). The GTA Advance rendition is depicted with a dimension dissimilar to that of other Idaho's, with a shorter front end and a smoother front profile, but retaining a different top color.

The Idaho has looked virtually the same in most game it has appeared in, with noticeable tweaks and changes in minor details, mainly on its wheels and windscreens. The GTA Vice City rendition, in particular, received better detailing, but the game's rendition was not carried over to GTA Vice City Stories, as it has been for most other vehicles from GTA Vice City. Instead, GTA Vice City Stories reuses GTA III's or GTA Liberty City Stories' rendition of the Idaho.

During development of GTA III, the Idaho was named the "Hachura", a name previously used for another car in Grand Theft Auto 2. Furthermore, one of the two rusty/burned out car wrecks that can be seen in most of the GTA III generation games use a similar model as the beta version of the GTA III Idaho.


Due to its heavy build and soft suspension, the Idaho lacks serious performance credentials, with poor speed and steering. This places the car at a standing that is even lower than that of an Esperanto, but is still faster than a Manana. Braking is rather poor, with no ABS at all. It is in GTA III one of the only two cars (the other being the FBI Kuruma) to actually scrape its front bumper on the ground when fully braking. The crusher scrap value of the car in GTA Advance is $512.
