To the uninitiated, it's a neat little 80's compact with retro arcade livery. But to you, it's a badge of honor. It's a testament to every podium you climbed, every bullet you dodged, every bet you placed, every vehicle you customized, every competitor you immolated and every middle finger you shoved in the face of every idiot dumb enough to stand in your way. To the victor go the spoils.
Southern San Andreas Super Autos description.


The Dinka Go Go Monkey Blista is a two-door hatchback appearing in Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.

Description

The vehicle is exclusive for the enhanced version players who have returned from either the Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3. As of the Arena War update for Grand Theft Auto Online, it is available to all players who have reached Skill Level 20 in Arena War.

Design

Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online

The vehicle is essentially a Blista Compact with a Go Go Space Monkey livery wrapped across the vehicle. This livery mainly consist of a black colour with yellow, orange and white lines around the bumpers, as well as yellow-coloured rims. The Blista Compact's badges were also retained in this variant, and while it retains the same modifications, some of them may bear the coloured stripes from the livery. The rear central case between the tail lights also has the Videogeddon Arcade logo plastered over the "BLISTA" marking.

Files indicate that the vehicle spawns in a white color, which is only visible in the portions of the car not covered by the texture (such as the door trims and the underside of the hood), as well as the optional roll cage of the "Roll Cage and Chassis Upgrade" modification. The vehicle also retains the wheel design from the Blista, being a derivative of the "El Jefe" muscle rims seen in Los Santos Customs, albeit painted with a yellow color (which may reset to the default alloy if the wheels are changed). Purchased examples, however, are set to spawn in a red color with default alloy rims.

Performance

Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online

The vehicle shares the performance with the original Blista Compact, being surprisingly fast with nimble handling and good suspension. At low speeds, the front wheel drive makes the Blista Compact feel very responsive and engaging, but it suffers from noticeable understeer at high speed. The car handles acceptably well, but does have occasional bouts of oversteer. Crash deformation is acceptable, and it is able to take a few decent hits before being disabled. Any major hit to either of the front wheels has a strong possibility of jamming the wheels, and immobilizing the car, so colliding into hard objects should be avoided where possible.

Again, the engine model is a twin-cam Inline-4, laid transversely in a front-engine, front wheel drive configuration. Also, the engine sound is shared with the Monroe, Bifta and Kuruma, implying it is turbocharged.

Locations

Grand Theft Auto V

To unlock the Go Go Monkey Blista, the following steps must be completed:

  • Photograph all fifty Monkey Mosaics found around the map.
  • Go to the random event which will be unlocked in the alley directly north of the Los Santos Customs in Burton. The artist responsible for the Monkey Mosaics will be spray painting another mosaic:
  • He will begin running away; the player needs to photograph him before he is out of sight.
  • The player will receive a text saying that the Go Go Monkey Blista is now available in the player's garage property.
  • It will now be selectable from the Special Vehicles menu in the garage property.

Grand Theft Auto Online

  • Sometimes seen in the CEO Work "Transporter" as a cargo vehicle in the back of a Wastelander. It cannot be removed from the Wastelander or driven.
  • Can be obtained for free from Southern San Andreas Super Autos, after reaching Skill Level 20 in Arena War.

Trivia

  • The default radio stations for the Go Go Monkey Blista are FlyLo FM or Soulwax FM.
  • The Go Go Monkey Blista no longer has an updated image and a preview on Rockstar Games Social Club.
  • In GTA Online, if the vehicle is obtained through Southern San Andreas Super Autos' website, it will always spawn with a red secondary color and without any wheel colors, unlike in single player, where it has a Pure White secondary and Worn Taxi Yellow wheel color.
    • The secondary color can be easily noticed via the engine bay and the roll cage (if installed).

Bugs/Glitches

Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online

  • When applying the "Dual Exit Exhaust" upgrade, smoke will only come out of the left exhaust. This also applies to the standard Blista Compact.
