The '''Hotring Racer''' is a fast unlockable race car featured in [[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City]] and [[Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas]]
+
==Description==
  +
The Hotring Racer is evidently a [[wp:Stock car racing|Stock car racing]] vehicle, distinguished by the rather unique design and paint schemes with [[Businesses|fictional business]] ads. They resemble stock cars of the mid-1980s.
   
== Description ==
+
In ''[[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City]]'', they are used in the "[[Hotring]]" side mission, while in ''[[Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas]]'', they are used in the "[[8-Track]]" side mission.
=== Overview ===
 
The Hotring Racer is a very fast vehicle, and is used in the Stadium challenges in both GTA Vice City and GTA San Andreas. It can be obtained in GTA Vice City by completing the [[Sunshine Autos]] import missions, and in GTA San Andreas it is unlocked by beating the [[8-Track]] stadium challenge. In GTA San Andreas, its top speed reaches 238 km/h, making this car one of the second fastest vehicles of the game. Each variant of the Hotring Racer features well known [[businesses]] as sponsors that appear in [[Vice City in GTA III Era|Vice City]], [[Liberty City in GTA III Era|Liberty City]] and [[State of San Andreas|San Andreas]].
 
   
=== Design and variants ===
+
==Design==
There are four variants of the Hotring Racer, however, they all perform exactly the same. They all resemble cars from the late '80s/early '90s, presumably based on [[wp:Sprint Cup Series#1981-2007|NASCAR stock-cars]]: The first variant (internally named "hotring") vaguely resembles a very generic GM G body, the second (internally named "hotrina") looks like a Chevrolet Lumina and a 1985-1986 Ford Mustang (the front somewhat), the third (internally named "hotrinb") has design aspects from a Chevrolet Monte Carlo (rear side window) and a Buick Regal (front). The "hotring" in GTA Vice City noticeably lacks the roll cages and netting of the "hotrina" and "hotrinb", an inconsistency partially rectified for the GTA San Andreas rendition with the addition of netting.
+
===3D Universe===
+
The Hotring Racer comes in three different versions, although in both ''[[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City]]'' and ''[[Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas]]'', only one is available to the player as a reward, while the other two are only available by using cheats or glitching them out of the stadium. The three Hotring Racers differ in performance and design.
Under normal circumstances, the "hotring" is the only version of the Hotring Racer available for the player to drive freely in the game world, while the "hotrina" and "hotrinb" are only available via cheats or mods, such as the use of a garage editor or trainers. One exception is present in GTA San Andreas, when the player must drive a "hotrinb" in 8-Track races.
 
 
The "hotring" bears only one number in each game: #27 in GTA Vice City and #21 in GTA San Andreas, while the "hotrina" and "hotrinb" have 6 different car numbers each in each game:
 
*In GTA Vice City, the hotrina may spawn with the numbers #21, #34, #56 or #78, while the hotrinb may be marked with the numbers #14, #28, #65 or #69.
 
*In GTA San Andreas, the hotrina can be numbered #14, #45, #52, #67, #73 or #96, while the hotrinb may obtain the numbers #07, #26, #36, #60, #65 or #82.

The Hotring Racer is a race car featured in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.

DescriptionEdit

The Hotring Racer is evidently a Stock car racing vehicle, distinguished by the rather unique design and paint schemes with fictional business ads. They resemble stock cars of the mid-1980s.

In Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, they are used in the "Hotring" side mission, while in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, they are used in the "8-Track" side mission.

3D UniverseEdit

The Hotring Racer comes in three different versions, although in both Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, only one is available to the player as a reward, while the other two are only available by using cheats or glitching them out of the stadium. The three Hotring Racers differ in performance and design.

  • The first variant ("hotring") vaguely resembles the 9th generation Ford Thunderbird.
  • The second variant ("hotrina") resembles a 1985 Chevrolet Camaro and Buick Skyhawk (front), and a 1985 Chevrolet Cavalier (rear).
  • The third variant ("hotrinb") resembles a 1988 Oldsmobile Cutlass (front), and a 1988 Chevrolet Monte Carlo (rear).

The "hotring" in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City lacked a roll cage and netting, unlike the "hotrina" and "hotrinb." This inconsistency was partially fixed in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, which added netting to the vehicle.

Depending of the version and the game, each variation will have the following sponsors:
