Specter was an okay character in the original Twisted Metal, but far from my favorites.
His car reminds me of the car from the video game Spy Hunter.
His original and lost endings are very similar but with one key difference. He’s a ghost and he asked for a way to become alive again. In his official ending, he gets to go back home to his wife and daughter. In the lost ending, Calypso immediately kills him again, just to be a douchebag.
