- "An Italian luxury car company founded in Bologna at the beginning of the 20th century that focused on racing cars. Having failed to win many Grand Prix, they focused on making sports cars that impress vapid women. They've done this exceptionally well."
- ―Southern San Andreas Super Autos description of the Felon.
Lampadati, according to Southern San Andreas Super Autos, was founded in Bologna at the beginning of the 20th century, much like Maserati was. The name and branding appears based on the Italian car manufacturer Maserati, and its cars draw inspiration from both Maserati and Jaguar. The name means "tanned with a sun lamp" in Italian.
The logo of Lampadati consists of a peacock, which bears some similarity to the silhouette of the Maserati trident. The company appear to have a slightly unofficial connection with Ocelot, as some of their cars share design manufacturers, for example the F620, Felon and Felon GT have influences of vehicles manufactured by Jaguar as well as Maserati.
