An Eddy in GTA 2.
|Vehicle type||Civilian car|
|Body style||2-door sedan|
|Capacity||4 (driver and 3 passengers)|
The Eddy is a car featured in Grand Theft Auto 2.
The Eddy is designed as a two-door hardtop sedan with unusually angular late-1950s/early 1960s design cue, unlike "older" rounded counterparts adopted by many of the game's other vehicles. The car's name (internally referred as the
EDSEL), as well as its general appearance, appears to be based on the Edsel line of cars, although the exact Edsel model which the Eddy is based on is unspecified. Edsel models similar to the Eddy include the Citation, Corsair, Pacer and Ranger.
In terms of performance, the Eddy fares averagely, with a slightly above average top speed, but features delayed acceleration due to slower gear shifting. Its steering and braking are also average at best. When crushed, the car awards the player 60 rounds of Machine Gun ammunition.
- The Eddy's body design is incorporated into the design of the Special Agent Car, which is distinguished by its black paintwork and a detachable red strobe light. In fact, the Eddy shares the same set of delta images as the Special Agent Car, although both cars still possess their own performance stats.
- The default color shade of the Eddy is green, unlike most other regular cars, which use brown.
The Eddy only spawns within the Residential and Industrial Districts of Anywhere City in traffic, and does not appear to have any parked locations. It is interesting to note that the Special Agent Car is also present in the two districts, lending to the idea that both cars share the same deltas.
