Not to be confused with the Stinger, another classic sports car with a similar name in Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online.
"The Ocelot Swinger was supposed to be a myth. A few blueprints got passed around by collectors, but it just didn't seem possible: the aerodynamics were decades ahead of their time, the engineering too complex for a classic car, the bodywork so alluring that just feathering the clutch would feel like cheating on your spouse. But now, thanks to the power of assembly robotics and easily monetized nostalgia, the legend has finally hit the streets."
Legendary Motorsport description.

The Ocelot Swinger is a classic sports car featured in Grand Theft Auto Online as part of the After Hours update.

Design

Grand Theft Auto Online

The Swinger heavily resembles the Jaguar XJ13, with the tail lights from the Lucra LC470.

The Swinger is distinguished from its seemingly curved appearance, featuring a front intake and circular headlamps, along with a vented bonnet and protruding fenders. Inside the bonnet area, a spare wheel is seen.

The greenhouse area features a curved windshield and a large window that exposes its engine bay. The doors follow the shape from the front area and features door handles at a lower level than most standard cars (being a bit higher than those from cars with gull-wing doors like the Stirling GT). The cabin also features a T-bar roof.

The rear area is notably curved at the rear end, featuring two circular tail lights. The fender area features large intakes at the front and smaller vents at the rear. A small boot can be seen directly behind the engine bay area.

The underside is very simplistic, with the outer sides enclosed by the bodywork. Two exhaust tubes can be seen coming from the rear and ends below the rear section, with a dedicated moulding for these tubes.

Its interior is largely composed of race-based dials and switches, but arranged in a way that the gauges are on the driver side, while the speedometer and tachometer gauges are on the centre, facing to the driver. The cabin's rear-view mirror is mounted at the centre of the dashboard.

This car uses the XA-21's badges, but does not map the "OCELOT" or "XA-21" text, leaving only the high-quality Ocelot emblem.

Performance

Grand Theft Auto Online

The Swinger is one of the fastest Sports Classics cars in the game. It possesses good acceleration and a high top speed. In terms of handling, it can be a handful on bumpy courses, and due to the lack of a spoiler, can get loose around corners, but it can be corrected. Overall, the car is a decent choice for circuits, and an excellent choice for drag racing.

The car is powered by a single-cam V12 engine sporting carburetors on it, coupled to a 5-speed gearbox in a rear-mid engine, rear wheel drive layout.

The Swinger has 6 Advanced Flags activated[1], including the 4 flags introduced in the Southern San Andreas Super Sport Series update, with only the first three having known purposes. They are as follows:

  • The first causes up-shifting to occur much sooner, and at lower engine revolutions, effectively shortening shift rates.
  • The second causes the vehicle's engine to heavily over-rev and remain at the engine red-line for a much longer period of time before shifting, causing revolutions to fluctuate.
  • The third increases the vehicle's suspension "springiness", causing it to bounce excessively while driving.

Trivia

General

  • The Swinger's default radio station is Non-Stop-Pop FM.
  • Legendary Motorsport's description of the Swinger as a "myth" and that it was merely "blueprints" is a reference to how the XJ13, the car the Swinger is based on, never made it further than being a prototype racing car.
  • The "For Queen and Country" livery is based on the Shagadelic Jaguar from the Austin Powers series.
