The B-Type is a car featured in Grand Theft Auto 2.

Description

Design

The B-Type is designed a four-door sedan with heavily 1930s/1940s design cues, distinguished by its arrow-shaped trim on its radiator and hood shared with the Z-Type. Like other "-Type" cars, the B-Type is suggestively based on a Bentley, specifically, a Bentley S-Type (the S1, S2 or Bentley S3), as evidenced by its internal name, STYPE. However, the car itself does not bear much likeness to the real-life car, due largely to the car's drastic reduction in length, resulting in the car losing foremost its limousine-like appearance.

The Taxi Xpress, a taxi, is based on a B-Type.

Performance

The B-Type may be considered the least well performing car of the game's three "-Type" cars, but is still considered a desirable car to drive, with a significantly high top speed, responsive steering and good brakes. It only downside is its delayed acceleration, as the car's transmission is slow in shifting to higher gear as the car's speed increases.

When crushed, the car awards the player the Invulnerability power-up in the Downtown District and the Invisibility power-up in both the Residential and Industrial Districts.

Locations

The B-Type is commonplace in the game, appearing in all three districts of Anywhere City (The Downtown, Industrial and Residential Districts) in traffic as well as the following parked locations:

  • Near a Loonie safehouse in northern Sunnyside, Downtown, northwest of the asylum.
  • At a parking lot east of the Avalon church, Downtown, east of the Shiroto car shop.
  • At a parking lot north of the Tedium church, Industrial.
  • At a parking lot several blocks north of the Zaibatsu crusher in Sennora, Industrial.
