The Stout Scarab is a hidden vehicle available in L.A. Noire. It is a unique 1930s U.S automobile produced in small numbers by Stout Engineering Laboratories and later by Stout Motor Car Company of Detroit, Michigan.
Among a host of novelties and innovations, the Stout Scarab is credited by many as the world's first production minivan, and an experimental prototype of the Scarab became the world's first car with a fiberglass shell and air suspension. The Scarab's interior is flexible and can be compared to today's modern minivans and MPVs. Every seat except for the driver's seat could be easily reconfigured. This was good for the flexibility but not so good for the safety, since the seats weren't fixed at all. The in-game model lacks some details compared to the real Scarab, mainly the scarab emblem on the hood and the accompanying vents.
The Stout Scarab is the only hidden vehicle located in an Angel City Security garage east of the Los Angeles River. It can be found in a small garage in an industrial parking lot between 4th St. and Whittlier Boulevard.
Of all the hidden vehicles in the game, the Stout Scarab is the slowest, with a top speed of only 75 mph.
