The Yardie Lobo (known simply as the Yardie in Grand Theft Auto Advance) is a gang car that appears in Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto Advance and Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories. As its name implies, the vehicle is driven by Uptown Yardies gang members within their territories.
The Yardie Lobo, in essence, represents a large but generic 1960s/1970s two-door coupe, but features customizations common on a lowrider: Functional hydraulic suspensions, a leopard skin interior and sportier rims, as well as a pair of pink fuzzy dice hung from the rear mirror. It also appears with only a red body color and a yellow soft top in GTA III and GTA Liberty City Stories, or a green body with a yellow top in GTA Advance. The vehicle resembles a 1970 Chevrolet Impala and the taillights seem closer to a 1965 Impala. The Lobo's performance is described as average, possessing moderate speed, moderate steering sensitivity and stable cornering. Having only two doors, the Lobo can only seat two.
The Lobo earns the distinction of being the only vehicle with functional hydraulic suspensions in GTA III and GTA Liberty City Stories, similar to the Voodoo in GTA Vice City. Introduced in GTA III, the Lobo is also the first vehicle in the GTA series with hydraulic suspensions.
