Not to be confused with the Locust, a sports car in Grand Theft Auto: London 1969 and Grand Theft Auto Online.

The Emperor Lokus is a four-door sedan available in Grand Theft Auto IV.


Grand Theft Auto IV

The Lokus resembles a second generation Lexus GS, with headlights resembling those of the 2004–2010 Mercedes-Benz CLS, and a split grille design reminiscent of some Nissan models. The taillights resemble those of the BMW E46 3-Series. The vehicle also appears to have some design cues from the 1999-2004 Peugeot 406.

Grand Theft Auto IV

The Lokus is a rear-wheel drive saloon powered by a low-range V8, coupled with a 5-speed gearbox in a front engine, rear wheel drive layout. Acceleration could be described as leisurely; the Lokus takes a relatively long time to reach high speeds. Its top speed is not exactly incredible either. Needless to say, it is unfit for racing. The steering has no real feel to it; the Lokus is quite happy vaguely ambling left-ish or right-ish, but as a performance car it is not. The suspension is firm but not sharp, thus the comfort of the ride is compromised and a hint of understeer at high speeds is apparent. Braking is well below average, although ABS is available. In the event of a crash, the Lokus does not fare well; the Lokus cannot sustain much damage before becoming undrivable.
