"Good looking and liable to explode at any moment - the only way this could be more of an Italian stereotype would be if it had mommy issues. The Casco is a 50s classic for polymaths and pederasts."
Legendary Motorsport description.

The Lampadati Casco is a classic grand tourer featured in Grand Theft Auto Online as part of the Heists Update.


Grand Theft Auto Online

The Casco is an amalgamation of Italian supercars from the late-50's to early-70's, such as the Maserati 3500 GT, the Ferrari 250 GT SWB (especially the 250 GT Berlinetta Lusso and the GT/E) and early models of the Fiat 124 Sport Spider. It also takes some design cues from the Volvo P1800.

Much like other Sports Classics in the game, the vehicle features only standard modifications. At the rear of the vehicle, the rear light compartments consist of four red lights and a single reverse light, as well as a gas cap where the other light should be. Additionally, it has a set of 8-spoke wheels which are unique to this vehicle.

The Casco has amazing acceleration and a very good top speed thanks to its 3.6 liter 220bhp V8 (according to the in-game website). The handling model gives it slight understeer and a tendency to slide, but it can be re-controlled with minimal effort. It has great durability against impact deformation, rivaling that of the JB 700, the Roosevelt, and the Coquette Classic.

In terms of its engine, the position, type and layout is identical to the Stinger and Stirling GT, being configured as a front engine, rear wheel drive, with a single overhead camshaft V8 with 4 double-barrel downdraft carburetors, laid longitudinally.

Notable Owners


Grand Theft Auto Online



  • Casco means "Helmet" in Italian.
  • The description refers to older Italian cars having good looks, but horrendous reliability, and relates this to the stereotype that all Italians are good-looking but have volatile tempers.
  • One of the vehicles depicted in the Max Payne 3 files is also named Casco, implying that the car, or at least its name, was planned much before the release of Grand Theft Auto V.
  • The default radio stations of the Casco are Radio Mirror Park, Vinewood Boulevard Radio and Los Santos Rock Radio.

Grand Theft Auto Online

  • It shares the same engine noise as the Coquette Classic, Stirling GT and JB 700 (latter applies to the enhanced version only).
  • The right rear indicator is unbreakable, and will always stay on regardless if the other lights are turned off. This can be easily seen at night. This is caused by a misspelling of the indicator model.
  • The descriptions mentions the car being a favorite of 'polymaths', meaning a person with expertise in a wide range of fields, referencing Maxim Rashkovsky and 'pederasts', or those who have homosexual relationships with either a significantly older or younger partner, perhaps implying Rashkovsky had a homosexual relationship in prison.
