An A-Type in Grand Theft Auto 2.

The A-Type is a car featured in Grand Theft Auto 2.




The A-Type is designed as a two-door car with a relatively leaner and smoother design, in contrast with other "-Type" cars in the game, but still appears with 1930s/1940s-like design cues. Like other "-Type" cars, the A-Type is suggestively based on a Bentley, specifically, a Bentley R-Type, as evidenced by its internal name, RTYPE. However, the car itself doesn't bear much likeness to the real-life car, due to significant changes made on its design during development. An early concept design by Ray Larabie suggests the car would have been more ornate, similar to the R-Type.



The A-Type is an excellent road-going vehicle, with great top speed and acceleration (with no delay from gear shifts), as well as good steering and excellent brakes. When crushed, the car awards the player a Fast Reload power-up.


  • Unusually, the A-Type does not normally spawn in traffic, and can only be found parked on the south edge of Fruitbat's eastern half, in the Downtown District of Anywhere City.
