Ocelot are a car manufacturer in the HD Universe, first appearing in The Ballad of Gay Tony.

Description

The name is based on Jaguar as both names are taken from species of the feline family and the company features design cues based on Maserati and Jaguar, as well as subtle touches from McLaren-Mercedes. The first Ocelot vehicle introduced in the series is the F620. The Ocelot brand was originally identified from a billboard in Star Junction, as the F620 in The Ballad of Gay Tony lacked badges.

By the events of Grand Theft Auto V, Ocelot have introduced the Jackal four-door coupé.

In GTA Online, Docktease state that Jetmax and the Suntrap are manufactured by Ocelot, although they are under the Shitzu marque in GTA V, and retain their original brands in the american.gxt file.

  • There is a military vehicle manufacturer based in Bedfordshire, England called Team Ocelot. Their vehicle is a SUV called the Team Ocelot LPPV.
  • The ocelot is a species of wild cat like the jaguar, but far smaller.
