"A Japanese hybrid-electric sportscar with a front-end designed to look like an angry grin might be too whimsical for some, but with a 4-liter V6 engine, 420 hp and a top speed of 180mph, the Dinka Jester still packs a serious punchline."
Legendary Motorsport description.

The Jester is a two-door sports car in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online. It was also supposed to appear in Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories, but was removed before the game's release. It is manufactured by Dinka in the HD Universe.

Design

The car appears as a two-door coupé in GTA San Andreas, and a two-door mid-engine sports car in GTA V.

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

Designed as a two-door sports coupe, the Jester bears resemblance to several real life cars, such as the Toyota Supra Mark IV (A80), the Nissan 300ZX Z31, and a hint of Fiat Barchetta. However, the design has a strong resemblance to the Toyota Supra RZ.

Grand Theft Auto V

The Jester now mostly resembles the 2015 Honda/Acura NSX, with curvy features and distinct Japanese styling in both the bodywork and front and rear fascia. The headlights and the hood are derived from the BMW i8.

The Jester is made up of an aggressive front face made by the irregular shape of the headlights, causing it to resemble an angry grin. There is a noticeable Japanese style on the Jester, which included many sharp curves throughout the car, specifically the front and sides. The rear is more sloped and rounded, giving it a stark contrast between the front. The Jester also features two fuel tank caps, one on either side.

Performance

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

The car is equipped with an inline engine sporting a performance intake manifold. Unlike the Supra, the Jester is front-wheel-drive, yet retains its sporty qualities. In acceleration, speed, handling, and braking, the Jester is inferior to most other sports cars and tuners in the game, superior only to the Euros. However, the vehicle still possesses good grip and braking, ideal for sharp cornering using the brake or handbrake. Like most tuners in the game, the body construction is poor, making the car susceptible to intense damage from high-speed impacts and heavy gunfire.

Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories

Based on what the files suggest,[1] the car performed similarly to how it did in San Andreas. However, this time it had a RWD configuration. Because the car never made it into the final game, it's unknown if it remained exactly the same as in its predecessor.

Grand Theft Auto V

The Jester has good top speed and acceleration, making it comparable to other sports cars in its class. The acceleration is average, however the handling makes up for this. Based on a Japanese sports car, the steering and agility of the vehicle are extremely sensitive and responsive, due to the fact that the Jester is all-wheel drive (20% - 80%, front to rear torque distribution). This also allows the car to have exceptional handling even over slippery or wet surfaces, making it a useful getaway vehicle even in poor conditions.

The agility of many Japanese sports cars contributes to extremely skillful and quick moves if used right, but at low speeds could cause a crash with excessive traction, acceleration, and small turning radius, likely due to the all-wheel drive nature of the car.

Due to the fact that there is an electric motor, there is no loss of power during gear shifts; this is very useful when racing and simply wanting a smooth ride. But the Jester tends to start drifting when driven on dirt roads, most likely due to its large power output. Crash deformation is excellent, and it can take multiple front end collisions without deforming the front wheels.

Despite claiming to have a V6 engine, it actually has a V8 engine, which can be seen through the rear window. The Jester shares the same engine sound as the Coquette.

Los Santos Customs Modded Single Player

Like the randomly spawning modified Jesters, two sets of Jesters may spawn outside Los Santos Customs, pre-modified. These again only spawn in single player. The vehicles appear in set color sets with the same modifications. They will not spawn with any of the default extra components. These variants are named "LS_CUSTOMS_MODDED_SP" and use the exact same modifications and colors as the Business DLC Sports Modded sets.

Prominent Appearances in Missions

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

  • This vehicle may be selected randomly as a standard-class target source vehicle from SecuroServ during Vehicle Cargo missions with one of three variations: H0TP1NK, T0PCL0WN and N0F00L.
    • This vehicle is classed as a Standard-Range vehicle.
    • Jester "N0F00L" is part of the 4-vehicle "Hip To Be Square" Vehicle Cargo Collection.

Scenarios (enhanced version)

The Jester is part of two vehiclemodelsets, "LS_CUSTOMS_MODDED_SP" and "BUSINESS_DLC_SPORTS_MODDED". The first allows the Jester, among other cars, to spawn outside Los Santos Customs heavily modified, and in other places around the city, the second allows the Jester and Massacro to spawn heavily modified in specific locations. They only spawn in GTA V.

Trivia

General

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

Grand Theft Auto V

  • The "R" in the Jester's badge is colored red, mimicking the Type-R badge famous among Honda cars, for example the First Generation Honda NSX.
  • When heavily damaged, smoke will come out of the front end, as if its engine was at the front, despite being just in front of the rear axle (rear-mid). This is likely a developer oversight.
    • This has since been fixed in enhanced version of the game, and will now emit smoke from the rear.
