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 [[Beta Releases#Grand Theft Auto III|development of GTA III]], the Idaho was named the "[[Hachura]]", a name previously used for another car in [[Grand Theft Auto 2]].

The Idaho is a coupe featured in Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Grand Theft Auto Advance, Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories.

Description

Design

Depicted as a large, two-door 1970s coupe with a soft-top, the Idaho's styling contains elements of a fourth generation Buick Riviera but the front is closer to 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.

Performance

Due to its heavy build and soft suspension, the Idaho lacks serious performance credentials, with poor speed and steering. In GTA III though, it has some of the best brakes in the game, being one of the only two vehicles that scrapes the front bumper on the ground under full braking (the other being the FBI Kuruma). This places the car at a standing that is even lower than that of an Esperanto, but is still faster than a Manana. The crusher scrap value of the car in GTA Advance is $512.
