The Invetero Coquette is a two-door sports car in Grand Theft Auto IV.

Description

Design

The Coquette generally resembles a Chevrolet Corvette C5 (1997-2004), albeit with revealed headlights, and a less curvaceous body shape. It has a front bumper grille reminiscent of the Corvette C6 (2005-current). The taillights bear some resemblance to the Corvette and also of the 2007-present Nissan GT-R, but overlap; the exhaust pipes also overlap and mimic the taillight design (early 2003 Gemballa Porsche models used overlapping mufflers).

Performance

The Coquette has an amazing top speed of 214 mph (344 km/h), being the third-fastest car in the game behind the Comet and the Infernus. Its acceleration is second only to the Sultan RS. It has excellent braking and handling, even at high speeds, and makes a good drifting car. Its chief disadvantage is durability; the front engine configuration makes the car particularly vulnerable to damage compared to its fellow high-speed vehicles, the mid-engined Turismo and Infernus, and rear-engined Comet; a few high-impact frontal collisions are sufficient for the car's engine to seize.

Variants

The Coquette has a unique white-and-red paint job available, similar to that of the 1984-1996 C4 Corvette featured in the television series The A-Team [1]. This paint job, unlike most other unique paint jobs, can be sprayed onto any Coquette.

A Coquette is also requested as part of Stevie's Car Thefts, featuring a gray body color. As a new Coquette will spawn at the same spot until the player delivers one to S&M Auto Sales, the player can save one at their safehouse before delivering another. Stevie's photograph of the car is shown to have no badge or marque on its rear, implying it was not originally added earlier in game development.

Trivia
