Hotring Racers were introduced in ''[[Grand Theft Auto: 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 ''[[Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas]]'', they are used in the "[[8-Track]]" side mission.
 
   
 
== Design ==
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 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 cannot be used without cheats.

The Hotring Racers are fast vehicles, almost on par with most sport cars in the game, like the [[Infernus]] or the [[Cheetah]]. The top speed and the acceleration are impressive and the grip is very good. Its resistance may not be one of the best, but is still a strong vehicle. The vehicle's handling is average, but at higher speeds, it will suffer from understeer, though not as severe.

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 race car featured in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.

Description

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.

Design

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 cannot be used without cheats. The three Hotring Racers differ in performance and design.

  • The first variant ("hotring") vaguely resembles a very generic GM G body [citation/verification 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 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 certain the following sponsors:
