Due to its low suspension, it hugs the road and is not prone to rolling over or spinning out of control when cornering at high speeds. This, combined with the ability of a police car, makes the police Cheetah a useful vehicle in [[Vigilante]] side missions.

The VCPD Cheetah is a law enforcement sports car in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories. It is known simply as the Cheetah in GTA Vice City with Vice Cheetah as its internal model name, and the VCPD Cheetah in GTA Vice City Stories.

DesignEdit

The VCPD Cheetah is an undercover police version of the Cheetah used by the Vice City Police Department. The vehicle is exactly the same as a regular Cheetah, albeit with the addition of a flashing red strobe light and siren.

Like most law enforcement vehicles, entry into the car allows the player to activate the Vigilante side mission. Incidentally, the VCPD Cheetah is one of three resprayable police vehicles in the GTA series (the others being the FBI Washington and GTA III's FBI Car), making it a great choice for the Vigilante side mission; in GTA Vice City Stories, however, the VCPD Cheetah cannot be resprayed.

PerformanceEdit

The VCPD Cheetah performs the same as the civilian Cheetah. The Cheetah's acceleration is slightly inferior to other sports cars in the game, but handling, speed and braking are far superior to all others. Due to its low suspension, it hugs the road and is not prone to rolling over or spinning out of control when cornering at high speeds. This, combined with the ability of a police car, makes the police Cheetah a useful vehicle in Vigilante side missions.

LocationsEdit

The police Cheetah is normally driven by two undercover agents equipped with Uzi sub-machine guns who chase you upon attaining a three-star wanted level; evading the police Cheetah is nearly impossible in this case.
