Spy sports car
spy sports car
Plural: spy sports' cars
This car is the legendary G-6155 Interceptor, with all the bells and whistles you could possibly want. It's no Aston Martin, but those can't get upgrades by driving into the back of a semi trailer, either. This particular car has been outfitted with an impressive suite of defensive countermeasures, including a smoke screen and the ever popular oil slicks. It also gets insane gas mileage, meaning you'll save a fortune over the life of the vehicle.

Using a spy tux
- (if level 4 or above)
You press a button labeled 'F' on the steering wheel, and before you can say chitty-chitty, the car shifts and changes, turning into a mini-sub. And if you did this while anywhere but a dock, you're now kind of stuck.
- You got an item: spy submarine
- (if level 3 or below)
You press some button on the steering wheel, causing the car to fold into a neatly pressed tuxedo. Best. Button. Ever.
- You got an item: spy tux
- Sometimes, during combat, you'll get one of the following messages blocking your enemy's attack:
- You hit a button in your schwanky spy car. It turns into a submarine for a second, bewildering your foe long enough for you to act.
- You hit a button in your schwanky spy car. The speakers blast 'Turkey in the Straw' and your opponent is momentarily distracted looking for the ice cream truck.
- You hit a button in your schwanky spy car. It does something amazing, but your opponent is too busy looking out for spy hot air balloons to notice. Jerk.
- You hit the 'spy smoke slick' button in your schwanky spy car, momentarily blinding your opponent with smoke.
- You hit the 'spy oil screen' button in your schwanky spy car, coating your opponent in oil and temporarily immobilizing them.
- You can't decide between the 'spy smoke slick' and 'spy oil screen' buttons in your schwanky spy car, so you hit both, covering your opponent in smoky oil.
- It's just a shame there wasn't a 'spy <foe name> repellant' button.
- Block rate is about 21.1% ± 3%.
- This item is a reference to the Spy Hunter arcade game, whose plot revolved around the G-6155 Interceptor.
- The Aston Martin comparison is probably a reference to the spy car of a famous fictional spy, James Bond.
- Pressing a button labelled "F" to convert a car to a submarine is a reference to Speed Racer.
- The message when converting to a submarine contains a reference to the book Chitty-Chitty-Bang-Bang (perhaps fittingly, written by Ian Flemming).
