The Bravado Feroci (pronounced as Ferochi) is a four door sedan in Grand Theft Auto IV.

Design

Grand Theft Auto IV

The Feroci is based on a 1991-1997 Lexus GS with the rear of the 1995-1999 Infiniti I30 and takes many styling cues from numerous mid-size cars such as the 1998-2002 Honda Accord and 1995-2002 Opel/Vauxhall/Holden/Chevrolet Vectra B. The positioning and shape of the headlights and radiator grille bear a mild similarity to those of a fifth generation European Honda Accord. On the rear decklid, the name "Feroci" is placed where the name "Intrepid" would be, so the Feroci takes some styling cues from a second generation Dodge Intrepid.

The front bumper of the car is relatively large in profile and features a black narrow intake that spans about half the car's width, along with a set of unusable fog lamps beside it and a central plate holder mounted ahead of the intake. On the upper area, the central section is occupied by a trapezium-shaped chrome grille with five horizontal dividers and the Bravado emblem, while the sections beside it are occupied by wide headlight units, split between the main lights and smaller turn signals. The hood has smooth lines that start almost from the upper edges of the grille and run towards the windshield.

The sides of the car are denoted by the accent lines passing through, with the lower lines being at the same height as the upper edges of the bumpers, and the upper ones connected to the outer edges of the light units on both ends, just below the silver/chrome door handles. The greenhouse area makes use of black trim around the windows, painted mirrors on the frony doors and inner pillars on the rear doors, while the roof has a sunroof panel and additional black trims separating the roof area from the rest of the vehicle.

On the rear, the car's trunk lid features a black section with silver "FEROCI" lettering embossed on it and a third-brake light above, while the rear quarters house large tail lights, consisting of single main/brake units on the upper half and dual turn/reverse units on the lower half. Additional silver badging can be seen below the tail light units, displaying the manufacturer name on the driver side and the engine specifications on the passenger side. The rear bumper juts out from the rest of the car and features a plate holder on the center, small vents on the outer sides and a narrow black section spanning most of the car's width, along with a small exhaust pipe on the driver side. The Feroci shares its interior with the Imponte DF8-90, as "DF8-90" is printed on the seats.

The Feroci may spawn with several cosmetic accessories:

  • A version without the badges, also lacking an exhaust.
  • A version with a front bumper "spoiler".
    • A version with side skirts, also adding a twin exhaust and a Chinese Knotting to the rearview mirror.
    • A version with a rear bumper extension.
  • A version with a lip spoiler.

The vehicle spawns in a variety of primary colors for the bodywork, as well as a white secondary color that is actually applied on the rims (with some exceptions being either gold or black). It uses a set of five-spoke rims fitted with medium-profile tires.

Performance

Grand Theft Auto IV

The Feroci is powered by what is claimed to be a 3-liter V6 on the badges, but is modeled as a twin-cam four-cylinder engine, coupled to a 5-speed gearbox in a front engine, rear wheel drive configuration. Acceleration is acceptable, but not exceptional. Top speed is quite high. Handling is degraded by its rather soft suspension, designed for a nice ride, which it does, albeit with some firmness at low speeds. With enough effort the sedan can actually powerslide well, but drifts will need a rather odd amount of handbrake. With some practice, this car is a very good drifter. When beyond its limits, the suspension gives in fairly easily, but is one of the few vehicles that can drift, yet still have good handling. The steering feel is well weighted but feels too heavy, again at low speeds.

Braking is acceptable, the vehicle is rather good at slowing down from high speeds. The Feroci has ABS, although it does not always work. Crash deformation is acceptable, and the engine can sustain many direct hits before catching fire. Overall, with a good driver and a gang of three others, this car can really change the tide of a deathmatch, beat some hard missions, or can win the player some good races. Although the gang variant has better protection from bullets (as the bodykit covers the wheels in certain angles), that works against the car when going off-road is required.

The engine sound is relatively smooth and mid-revving, being also shared with similar sedans such as the Presidente and the Vincent.

Special Variants

Triad Gang

A modified version of this is driven by the Liberty City Triads, and can be found around The Exchange or Chinatown. These sport a chin spoiler with body kit, and a Chinese knotting (or more specifically a "Kin Tsuna") attached to the rear view mirror. These variants spawn painted in black with black rims or in cobalt blue with gold rims.

Because a default Feroci features a third brake light on its trunk lid, the Triad gang variant of the car also emits a glow at the same spot when the player brakes in the car, despite the fact the vehicle's rear spoiler completely covers the light.

FlyUS

FlyUS, the fictional airline featured in GTA IV, use the Feroci as their company car. This variant bears a white color with a FlyUS red and yellow livery, a roof-mounted beacon that works when the engine is on and a set of industrial wheels with shallow dog dish hubcaps, similar to the Merit-based Taxi. This variant is cosmetically distinct from the ordinary Feroci in that it has no Bravado badging on the grille or the rear end, and also lacks the black panel with the 'Feroci' lettering on the trunk lid.

The FlyUS variant has identical performance and engine sound to the regular Feroci. However, while the normal Feroci has inconsistent ABS usage (sometimes the ABS will work, other times not), the FlyUS variant seems to have a malfunctioning variant. If braking continuously, the FlyUS Feroci will lock and release its brakes up to three times from maximum speed to bring it to a stop.

  • A black Feroci with blacked out rims that is only found in Bohan. The player can also get it on multiplayer races as the first variant. It has been confirmed that the player can spray it onto any Feroci via Pay n' Spray. Doing this to a modified Feroci can grant the player a "unique" car, as it makes a black Feroci with blacked out rims and bodykit, spoiler and Chinese knotting. Respraying gang variants of any vehicle is practically the only way to customize vehicles with the exception of modifications or trainers, however girlfriends will still respond to them as normal variants of their respective vehicles.
  • A very rare, and may be a game bug, but a variant of the normal Feroci has golden rims excluding the chrome outer rim with a variety of body colours but usually a candy red or blue paint that may be used to produce the blue on the Triad gang variant. It has only been found in eastern Bohan. It is unknown if this is another variant, or a game bug. This model has be found on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 (both platforms without mods). This model has not been confirmed on PC.

Locations

Grand Theft Auto IV

Standard

FlyUS

  • They are commonly found at Francis International Airport in Dukes, specifically at the airport parking lot.
  • They can also be found driving around the airport with FlyUS Perennials, and on rare occasions, Ripleys. Large groups of them may spawn on the access road adjacent to the runway, although obtaining them from here is dangerous as doing so may cause the player to move into the restricted area surrounding the runway, giving them a four-star wanted level.

Trivia

General

  • The default radio stations of the Feroci are:
  • The name Feroci is an anagram of "Cefiro", possibly a reference to the Nissan Cefiro (Infiniti I30 in USA), whose 1995-1998 and 1999-2003 models share a similar profile with the Feroci.
  • Feroci is Italian for "fierce" or "ferocious", and is similar to other Romance words with the same meaning. This is possibly a reference to Dodge Intrepid's name.

Grand Theft Auto IV

  • It can be assumed that the Feroci is GTA IV's continuation of the previous body style of the Kuruma. Also, it appears to be the HD universe rendition the Forelli ExSess.
  • On the trunk of the FlyUS variant, an illustration of a Jet in a FlyUS livery can be seen. While this image does not match the livery used by the Jets in the actual game, the FlyUS livery for the Jet in GTA V resembles this depiction very closely.
  • Strangely, getting the FlyUS variant to spawn in the parking lot of Francis International Airport may sometimes require entering the airport first and waiting for one to spawn on the relief roads adjacent to the runway, then turning back and heading back towards the parking lot. This same phenomenon also applies to the FlyUS variant of the Perennial.

Grand Theft Auto V

  • The vehicle does not appear in Grand Theft Auto V, however rims named "Feroci RR" are featured as a customization option in Los Santos Customs, and police scanner files mention the car in the file named "0x096C90A7" (mispronounced "Feroki").
    • The vehicle also appears in the film Meltdown.
    • The Feroci is also used as the dashboard needle and interior textures found in many vehicles, such as the Intruder and FQ 2.
