The Ibishu Covet is a small, three-door Japanese hatchback built by Ibishu. It is styled after certain Japanese models from around 1987-1995.

The Ibishu Covet is equipped with a high-revving 1.5L I4 engine by default, which outputs around 90 hp. The stock model weighs around 960kg. The car is available with either a 4-speed automatic or 5-speed manual transmission. 0-60 mph takes more than 10 seconds and the car will only reach 100 mph on a good day.

The Sport model increases power output to about 100 hp, and includes stiffer suspension and 16" basketweave alloy wheels.

The Beater is a dirty version of the car with broken suspension which badly affects the handling. It can reach 60 mph in around 18 seconds. The Beater is the cheapest variant of the Covet so it makes a great project car or demo derby candidate.

The Turbo FWD Race configuration adds a Stage 2 Turbocharger, stiff race suspension, racing steering wheel, 6-speed race transmission, limited-slip differential, faster 720 degree steering rack, roll cage, and swaps the default hubcapped steel wheels with custom 17" alloys. With the Stage 1 Turbocharger, engine output is increased to around 180hp and the car can reach 60 mph in around 6.3 seconds. Top speed exceeds 130 mph.

The Turbo FWD Rally configuration includes the same upgrades as the Race configuration, but offers rally coilovers instead of race coilovers, 16" rally wheels, and a tight 540 degree steering rack. The output and weight of the Rally and Race models are identical, but the Covet Rally is more suited to harsh terrain as its suspension has been completely retuned with variable-rate springs and advanced two-way dampers.

The light weight of the Covet and its FWD system result in fast, responsive handling. It has a tendency for mechanical oversteer and power understeer, resulting in balanced, tossable behavior. In terms of safety, the Covet is relatively unsafe. During low-speed collisions, the soft body of the vehicle will absorb the impact very well, but the majority of the vehicle's structure lacks the rigidity to keep it in shape during an impact, meaning parts of the car may crumple inwards, potentially hurting occupants.

As of game version 0.5.1, the Covet is the only official vehicle with custom engine sounds.
