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

Description

Overview

The Hotring Racer is a fairly 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, Liberty City and San Andreas.

Design and variants

There are three 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 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.

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 4 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, #52, #73 or 96, while the hotrinb may obtain the numbers #07, #36, #65 or #86.
