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]]''.
   
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 ==
  +
The Yardie Lobo is a 2-door muscle car used by the [[Uptown Yardies]] gang, featured 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 ''[[Grand Theft Auto III]]'' and ''[[Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories]]'', or a green body, orange body or blue body with a yellow top in ''[[Grand Theft Auto Advance]]''.
   
== Description ==
+
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. 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]].

It also appears with only a red body color and a yellow soft top in Grand Theft Auto III and Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories, or a green body, orange body or blue body with a yellow top in Grand Theft Auto Advance.

The vehicle resembles a fifth generation Chevrolet Impala and the taillights seem closer to a 1965 Impala.
