Description

The car is a 2-door softtop coupé or convertible appearing as a mid-range 2+2 more suited for casual driving rather than for speedy travel. Bearing "Spider" as its internal name, the Arachnid's name is a play of "spider" or "spyder", alternate terms for a convertible roadster; "arachnid" is actually an umbrella term for joint-legged invertebrate animals that includes spiders. The car's has no clear source of inspiration, although it is speculated to be based on a 1958 Lancia Aurelia B24 Spider.

In terms of performance, the Arachnid is a good starter vehicle primarily suited for travel from point A to point B (in fact, the car is offered to the player as they begin at the Residential District's church), but is not practical for chases or timed missions. The car possesses a relatively average top speed, although the car accelerates, steers and brakes better.

When crushed, the car gives the player a Shotgun in the Residential District and a Machine Gun in the Industrial District.
