The Locust is a 2-seater sports car in Grand Theft Auto: London 1969.

Description

Evidently based on a Lotus Seven circa the 1960s, the Locust can be described as as a compact, open top roadster tailored more for raw performance than comfort or luxury. The car may also be available with two additional body colour styles: One with a running stripe at the front end, and another with a differently coloured nose.

Being built in such a way, the car's weight is only 62.5% of an average car's weight. The car's performance is also considerably good, with excellent top speed and brakes, as well as good acceleration and 20% less of a turning radius than average; however, the car is lacking in grip and handling. The Locust's base export value is £600, if it is delivered in perfect condition.

Trivia

  • Interestingly, there also exists a similarly name Locust, a kit car derivative of the Lotus Seven, as well as the Locost, a low-cost variant of the Lotus Seven.
