"Something made in America that can still take on the Asian imports? Yes, the Coquette has withstood the test of time and, with this new model, Invetero blew through all their bailout money to create an end product that only the 1% can afford. Don't bite the hand that feeds you."
Legendary Motorsport description.

The Invetero Coquette is a sports car featured in Grand Theft Auto IV, Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online.

Design

Grand Theft Auto IV

The Coquette closely resembles the Chevrolet Corvette C5, albeit with projector-style headlamps and slightly altered fascia. The front fascia is closely reminiscent of the facelifted 2002-2005 Honda/Acura NSX which shares the headlamp cluster design (the NSX sports a clear headlamp surround; the Coquette features a black surround), the radiator inlets, and the angular hood lines. The tail lights of the car are also based on that of the C5 Corvette, although the tail lamps overlap each other. The dual exhaust exits also overlap to mimic the tail light design. Unlike the Corvette, the side vents on the Coquette do not extend the entire length of the door; however they are finished with two silver accent strakes.

The car also features a rod antenna mounted on the roof for improved radio reception. The Coquette features five-split-spoke alloy rims wrapped by low-profile sport tires. The brakes are the same four very large, cross-drilled disc rotors found on the Infernus, Comet, and Turismo.

The interior design is closely related to that of a Corvette with the extended leather package: the bucket sports seats feature two-tone leather upholstery in black and yellow with "Coquette" embroidery and matching leather door finishers and leather-wrapped gearstick. The car features a fully-carpeted parcel shelf with integrated speakers.

Coquettes spawn prominently in a single color, with the exception of a white and red one, where the red stripe is the secondary color. Coquettes frequently have alarms.

Grand Theft Auto V

The Coquette was first seen in the official trailer of Grand Theft Auto Online, and now more closely resembles the Chevrolet Corvette C7. Some Lexus LFA and Jaguar F-Type influences are visible in the rear (with tail lamps slightly similar to the Benefactor Surano, another in-game vehicle).

Being a newer generation, the Coquette in Grand Theft Auto V shares a similar profile to that of the GTA IV iteration, but the changes are aparent: the front end has an identical intake layout, but the intakes are smaller and aligned with each other. The fender vents now have a different pattern and the hood sports a central intake by default. The cabin's A-pillars are finished in black and the rear section features rear quarter windows and a rear window separated (opposed to the single rear window from the GTA IV iteration). The rear end is slightly shorter and follows the same exhaust distribution, but close to each other, and the rear difguser finished in black. The secondary color is now applied to part of the hood and on the roof.

The Coquette can be purchased with or without a roof, however it is possible to remove or add a roof at a mod shop.

Performance

Grand Theft Auto IV

The Coquette is a typical American sports car, in that it has a front-engine, rear wheel drive layout, a twin-cam Inline-4 under the hood and a 5-speed gearbox. It features a large singular engine crossbar to protect the engine bay from damage and deformation.

Like its real-life counterpart, the Chevrolet Corvette, it is also fairly lightweight which lends the car its nimble and quick nature. The Coquette reaches a top speed of 91 mph, an incredibly high top speed compared to other cars in the game. It has excellent braking and handling, even at high speeds. This car oversteers with ease, as a result of the monstrous power being sent to the rear wheels. This means it requires caution when turning into a corner when racing as oversteer and other forms of powerslide will slow down the car at the corner. Despite its drifty characteristic, the Coquette is an excellent choice for racing and the oversteer is very easy to control compared to two of its main rivals, the Banshee and the Super GT.

While the Coquette has a fairly solid construction and damage resistance, the front engine layout of the Coquette means it is specifically vulnerable to engine damage in high-speed front-end collisions; more so than mid-engine sports cars like the Turismo and Infernus.

Grand Theft Auto V

The Coquette's inline-4 engine makes it a powerful vehicle in its own right. It has average acceleration, but a high top speed across Sports cars. Handling is the Coquette's strong suit, being very responsive and obedient of the driver's desires (potentially a bit too much so), meaning it's a great car to weave in and out of traffic with. Understeer is only an issue on tight corners, but otherwise a minor note. Braking power is great, and it can stop on short notice with ease. Crash deformation is poor, and only a small number of collisions are required to disable the car.

The car is once again powered by a double overhead camshaft inline 4, coupled to a 6 speed gearbox in a front engine, rear wheel drive configuration. This offers a large amount of powers to the rear wheels.

Special Variants

Grand Theft Auto IV

  • A Coquette is requested as part of Stevie's Car Thefts, featuring a gray body color. As a new Coquette will spawn at the same spot until the player delivers one to S&M Auto Sales, the player can save one at their safehouse before delivering another. Stevie's photograph of the car is shown to have no badge or marque on its rear, implying it was not originally added earlier in game development.
  • Similar to the Ruiner in Ivan The Not So Terrible and the Super GT in Union Drive, the Coquette in Payback can also come in unique metallic colors such as blue or red, in addition to the standard black.

Prominent Appearances in Missions

Grand Theft Auto IV

  • Stevie's Car Thefts - The Coquette is one of the 30 vehicles wanted by the Stevie's Car Thefts in the side-mission of the same name.

Trivia

General

  • "Coquette" is a term meaning a chatty, flirtatious woman.
  • The "q" and "u" of "Coquette" are the previous letters of "r" and "v" from "Corvette."
  • The Coquette plays the following radio stations by default when entered:
  • The Turismo in GTA Chinatown Wars (with exception of the Nintendo DS version) resembles a Coquette more than the Turismo itself from GTA IV.
  • The Coquette may be a successor to the GTA Vice City rendition of the Banshee as the Banshee was based on a C4 Corvette and the Coquette is based on the C5 Corvette.
  • After the release of the Coquette Classic and Coquette BlackFin, the Coquette is the vehicle with most generations, having a total of 4.

Grand Theft Auto IV

  • On rare occasions the police chatter will state it is manufactured by Declasse, indicating Declasse is based on the same real-life company Invetero is - Chevrolet.
  • There's a paintjob of the Coquette, white with a red line in the middle, that resembles the Corvette used by Templeton Peck, aka Faceman, in The A-Team.
  • Both the Italian Mafia and the Algonquin Triads use the Coquette as a gang car.
  • Despite the fact that the car is based on the Corvette, no variants can be found in a traditional Corvette yellow.
  • A glitch in Grand Theft Auto IV may cause the silver Coquette to keep spawning in front of the Suffolk Church.

Grand Theft Auto V

  • After patch 1.13, the roadster 'topless' variant of the Coquette can be bought alongside the regular hardtop, as with all the other cars that have a roadster variant, such as the Banshee.
  • The Coquette is the only roadster that has the roll cage customization available. This is most likely because the player can buy a roof at Los Santos Customs, but even without the roof, the roll cage is still available.
  • One of the optional front bumpers adds additional rally-style lamps to the vehicle, note that these are none-functional.
  • The Invetero-emblem on the front of the hood lights up when the front lights are turned on.

Glitches

  • A glitch may occur throughout the GTA V story that prevents Coquettes from spawning. To fix this problem, replay the mission Mr. Richards, take the parked Coquette, then fail the mission. Coquettes should spawn normally afterwards.
  • There's an open-top version with no roof. If the player takes the roofless version to a mod shop and views the roof options, the shop will automatically give the car a stock roof, even if the did not purchase one, and this roof then cannot be removed. To prevent this, simply do not look at the roof options.
    • This bug has been fixed, and the roof will remain as selected (stock, roofless, or custom/carbon).
