Hotring Racers were introduced in GTA: Vice City. They resemble stock cars of the mid-1980s with [[Businesses|fictional business]] ads. In GTA: Vice City, they are used in the "[[Hotring]]" side mission. In GTA: San Andreas, they are used in the "[[8-Track]]" side mission.

===Overview===
The three Hotring Racers differ in [[:Hotring_Racer#Performance|performance]] and [[:Hotring_Racer#Gallery|design]]. The first variant ("hotring") vaguely resembles a very generic GM G body (''clarification needed''). The second variant ("hotrina") resembles a 1985 Chevrolet Camaro (front), and a 1985 Chevrolet Cavalier (rear). The third variant ("hotrinb") resembles a 1982 Ford Thunderbird (front), and a 1985 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme (rear). The "hotring" in GTA: Vice City lacked a roll cage and netting, unlike the "hotrina" and "hotrinb." This inconsistency was partially fixed in GTA: San Andreas, which added netting to the vehicle.

The three Hotring Racers share the same top speed. Each variant handles differently. The "hotrina" boasts tremendous grip, superior to the "hotrinb" and "hotring" variants. On any driving course, the "hotrina" will be quicker than the "hotring" and "hotrinb." The "hotrinb" will be second-quickest, and the "hotring" will be third-quickest (both variants demand more driver's effort than the "hotrina"). Hotring Racers are rear-wheel drive, and allow drifting.

The Hotring Racer is a fast, unlockable race car featured in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. There are three versions of this vehicle.

Description

Overview

Hotring Racers were introduced in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City. They resemble stock cars of the mid-1980s with fictional business ads. In GTA: Vice City, they are used in the "Hotring" side mission. In Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, they are used in the "8-Track" side mission.

Design and variants

The three Hotring Racers differ in performance and design. The first variant ("hotring") vaguely resembles a very generic GM G body (clarification needed). The second variant ("hotrina") resembles a 1985 Chevrolet Camaro (front), and a 1985 Chevrolet Cavalier (rear). The third variant ("hotrinb") resembles a 1982 Ford Thunderbird (front), and a 1985 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme (rear). The "hotring" in GTA: Vice City lacked a roll cage and netting, unlike the "hotrina" and "hotrinb." This inconsistency was partially fixed in GTA: San Andreas, which added netting to the vehicle.

Other

The "hotring" bears only one number in each game: #27 in GTA: Vice City, and #21 in GTA: San Andreas. The "hotrina" and "hotrinb" both have 6 different car numbers 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.

Performance

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

In GTA: San Andreas, the three Hotring Racers share the same top speed. Each variant handles differently. The "hotrina" boasts tremendous grip, superior to the "hotrinb" and "hotring" variants. On any driving course, the "hotrina" will be quicker than the "hotring" and "hotrinb." The "hotrinb" will be second-quickest, and the "hotring" will be third-quickest (both variants demand more driver's effort than the "hotrina"). Hotring Racers are rear-wheel drive, and allow drifting.

Locations

Under normal circumstances, the "hotring" is the only variant of the Hotring Racer available for players to drive. However, during the "8-Track" race of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, the player drives a "hotrinb." The "hotrina" and "hotrinb" are only obtainable through cheat codes.
