The Yardie Lobo (known simply as the Yardie in Grand Theft Auto Advance) is a gang car that appears in Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto Advance and Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories.


Grand Theft Auto III & Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories

The Yardie Lobo is a 2-door muscle car used by the Uptown Yardies gang, featured with functional hydraulic suspensions, leopard skin seats and sporty rims, as well as a pair of pink fuzzy dice hung from the rear-view mirror, and red interior door panels. It also appears with only a red body color and a yellow soft top in Grand Theft Auto III and Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories.

The vehicle resembles a 1971-1975 Chevrolet Impala Sport/Custom Coupe and 1971-1975 Caprice Coupe in the overall design while the front is based on the 1975-1976 Caprice and 1976 Impala. The taillights are closer in appearance to the 1965 Impala. Like other sedan and station wagon-based gang cars in GTA Liberty City Stories, the game's Lobo also gains a sport car-like engine sound, implying it is a high-performance car. Similar to the Cartel Cruiser, Forelli Exsess, and Sindacco Argento, it does not have a non-gang variant, but its closest non-gang counterparts are the Esperanto and Idaho.

The Yardie Lobo is the first vehicle in the Grand Theft Auto series with hydraulic suspensions.

Grand Theft Auto Advance

The Yardie Lobo returns in Grand Theft Auto Advance, this time with a green body, orange body or blue body with a yellow top.

The Yardie Lobo's performance is described as average, possessing slightly above average speed, moderate steering sensitivity but a susceptibility to tailspins during high speed corning. Having only two doors, the Lobo can only seat two. When hydraulics are activated, the Yardie Lobo can sort uneven terrains easily, but its tendency to rollovers increases.

  • "Lobo" is Portuguese and Spanish for "wolf".
  • The default radio stations of the Yardie Lobo are:


  • In the beta version, the car had the same wheels as the Stallion.
  • If the car is driven by Yardie gang members, it will emit a unique horn sound, which was later reused for the Admiral in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City. In GTA Advance the car has the same horn sound as the Yakuza Stinger in GTA III.
  • The Yardie Lobo is the first car in the series to have fuzzy dice hanging from the rearview mirror, followed by the Bickle'76 and Peyote.
  • It is strange that in Grand Theft Auto: III the car has a normal engine, emits the same sound as the Taxi and Landstalker, but in Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories it has a high-performance one, despite Liberty City Stories passing in 1998 and III in 2001.
  • During development of Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories, the Yardie Lobo was meant to have a same engine sound as the Voodoo from Grand Theft Auto: Vice City. [citation/verification needed]
