Cops and robbers
Famous for its extraordinary road-holding abilities and low weight, this car quickly became a popular choice of both police and gangsters. Yes, it is not the fastest one, but quick enough to get Jean-Paul out of the prison.
Tuning and motorsport
The car was later replaced by the Fantomas models, which shared the same (but more powerfull) 1.9 litre engines. Therefore, an engine swap was a popular tuning option. This mod uses the 1961 Fantomas engine, which enables player to tune the car to setup multiple realistic cruise and racing versions of the car using voluntary intake restrictions.
The car is good for cruises and twisty rallycross races. It is not suitable for fast tracks. The suspension works well on rough surfaces. The fully-tuned cars with a zero intake restriction can closely compete with the Hanzmund V8 mod.
Stock 1.9-litre cruise versions:
- 1936 - 1939 stock car (46 bhp) (max 4300 rpm)
- 1939 - 1955 stock car (56 bhp) (max 4300 rpm)
- 1955 - 1957 stock car (60 bhp) (max 4500 rpm)
- Use less than 20% voluntary intake restrictions for racing vehicles with the Fantomas engines.
- 1938 - 1955 2.9-litre V6 stock car (77 bhp)
- keep in mind, that this version should be longer IRL and it is just a bonus to play with, until a proper derivative mod appears
While the front axle is realistically replicated using technical drawings, the rear axle is roughly approximated because the LFS currently does not support beam axles. The approximation ensures that camber and track are as similar as possible to the beam axle during fast cornering, but the suspension is fully independent and therefore little faster through potholes than the real-world car.

Many technical details were changed to meet the requirements of the Live for Speed physics. For example the original torsion bars and the rear beam axle are approximated by specially tuned double-wishbone suspension.
DisputesVehicle Mods have to undergo a review process to hopefully avoid any future disputes about inappropriate or unauthorised content.
If however some detail has been overlooked during the review process and you wish to address this, you can file a dispute by contacting the LFS developers.
We will review every report and typically get back to you within 48 hours, but at most 7 days.
Skin Templates Kit
The LFS Vehicle editor provides options to create skin templates. A template helps you create skins for a vehicle by giving you the outlines of the vehicle's shape, within which you can draw the livery that will be drawn onto the vehicle.
There are 4 types of templates:
- Shaded skin template
- Black and white skin template
- White background wireframe template
- Black background wireframe template
No skin templates kit has been provided by the creator of this vehicle mod.
