"Signature Dundreary grille, opulent wood panelling, roomy luggage compartment, and a roof rack for the family dog - the ultimate vehicle to live the 1960s suburban dream today."
Southern San Andreas Super Autos description.

The Regina is a four-door station wagon which has appeared in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, The Lost and Damned, Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online. It is manufactured by Dundreary in the HD Universe.


3D Universe

The Regina between GTA Vice City and GTA Vice City Stories is designed as a quintessentially 1980s American station wagon which bears a strong resemblance to the 1979-1988 Ford LTD Country Squire and 1984-1988 Chevrolet Caprice Estate Wagon in overall body shape and the placement of chrome strips on the sides; The shape of hood's front also echoes 1970s Cadillacs. The grille resembles that of a 1977-1986 Pontiac Parisienne.

The Lost and Damned

In The Lost and Damned, the Dundreary Regina is designed as a lean 1960s/1970s station wagon with 1960s GM rally wheels, low ground clearance and faded paint. The vehicle's overall body design and greenhouse are now based on the older 1966-1970 Caprice Estate Wagon and 1969-1972 LTD Country Squire while also taking influence from the 1969-1973 Chrysler Town & Country, mainly in the grille design.

Grand Theft Auto V

The Regina in GTA V is largely similar to its GTA TLAD counterpart, but with some styling differences. It now sports influences from the 1973 Plymouth Fury Sport Suburban, with very similar headlights, hood design, and roof racks. The taillights are mostly an original design, with cues from the 1967-1972 Chevrolet Chevelle/Malibu Wagon. The vehicle has lost its beater appearance from The Lost and Damned, and is now found in a restored condition, and may occasionally be found with different roof attachments such as a large chrome roof rack, which may sometimes have various amounts of boxes and suitcases tied to it.

3D Universe

Between GTA Vice City and GTA Vice City Stories, the Regina's acceleration is modest, and its speed is severely lacking - with the Regina's front-wheel drive powertrain, the underpowered V8 struggles to move this behemoth. Handling is sluggish, the car suffers from obvious understeer, and the brakes do a barely acceptable job of slowing the enormous chassis. The Regina is not especially sturdy, nor capable of withstanding heavy damage, and is a generally undesirable vehicle.

The FWD layout is the opposite of its real-life inspirations, as these cars are usually RWD.

The Lost and Damned

With a significant cosmetic change, the Regina in The Lost and Damned sports several noticeable differences in its performance. It is powered by a high displacement V8 engine coupled to a 5-speed manual transmission in an FR layout. Due to its heavier weight, the car is less nimble than its predecessors, occasionally requiring the aid of the handbrake in tight corners or high speed turns. Braking power is correspondingly below average. The suspension may be insufficient on the road, as the car heavyness on the rear section will disrupt the car when sorting out low obstacles such as curbs.

The car is also classified as one of the Beaters cars in GTA IV, emitting a knocking sound from the engine at high revs, occasionally taking a noticeably long time to start, and backfiring through its exhaust pipe.

The Regina shares its handling with the Solair, but its engine sound is the same as that of pickup trucks like the Bobcat and Rancher.

Grand Theft Auto V

The engine is modeled after a single-overhead camshaft V8, with a large cylindrical air filter fitted above the engine block, now coupled to a 4-speed gearbox. The Regina shares its engine sound with the Peyote.

The Regina's performance across the board is poor. It has very poor acceleration, and a top speed which leaves much to be desired. Its handling is acceptable at least, but it tends to oversteer when attempting to corner at speed. Braking is poor, and has a long braking distance despite being a slow vehicle already. Crash deformation is remarkably strong, and is able to take a few decent hits before being disabled. The Regina has very low torque, and that means it will have major issues attempting to climb hills, and control is practically nonexistent when attempting to descent from a decent-sized hill.

The Lost and Damned - How to get the Regina

The Lost and Damned - How to get the Regina.

How to obtain a Regina in TLAD.

  • The Regina only appears in the mission Heavy Toll. The easiest way to obtain this vehicle is to take it to the Bohan Safehouse.
    • To prevent losing the Slamvan from this mission, it is best to push the Regina there using the Slamvan.
    • If the player hurriedly heads to a nearby road after Heavy Toll, there is a chance that the car may spawn parked or in traffic. Of course, passing near the Bohan Safehouse will increase its availability.
    • If the player takes a Regina during the mission and leaves the area, failing the mission and reappearing in Elizabeta's house, quickly go to the nearest street where there might be a few Reginas.
    • If Johnny gets in the Slamvan quickly during the mission and drives away, the gang members will get in their cars and follow him. Drive to the Bohan safehouse, kill them, enter a Regina and park it.
  • Commonly spawned in traffic if the player is driving the Regina.

Grand Theft Auto V


The Regina is part of the vehiclemodelset, "CARS_STATION_WAGON". This set of cars is exclusive to the Regina, Stratum and Ingot. It isn't very common, but does appear in specific locations which guarantees a 1/3 chance of the Regina spawning. Template:GTAVScenarios



3D Universe

  • In the beta, the Regina's rear clusters had a different design.
  • If the player damages the rear hatch door in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, the door will have a darker color.

The Lost and Damned

  • The interior of the Regina is a near-duplicate of the Stallion's interior.
  • The Lost and Damned's Regina appears to lack B-pillars, yet features rear doors that are hinged to the front, where the B-pillar should be. This is most likely a designer oversight.
  • The Lost and Damned version also has a similar appearance to the Perennial from Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories.
  • Regina&Stallion-Bullyappearance

  • The Regina, like other beaters, takes a long time to start. Rapidly tapping accelerate or reverse, as if the player was hot-wiring a car, will make it start faster.
  • Unlike every other beater, the Regina does not get a "This is the best I could do with this wreck" notification when re-spraying it at a Pay'n'Spray.
  • While driving a Regina with a wanted level in TLAD, the police dispatcher may mistakenly refer to the Regina as a "Declasse Rancher" or a "beat-up SUV" due to the engine sound which is related to the sound of a Rancher.

Grand Theft Auto V


The mismatched lights on a Regina, using both stock and Xenon lights.

  • Prior to the I'm Not a Hipster Update, the Regina was the only car in the HD Universe to have luggage on the roof, now followed by the Glendale, Panto and Pigalle.
  • When the headlights on the Regina are modified, two halogen headlamps and two xenon headlamps will appear instead of four total xenon headlamps, as shown. The beams stay xenon blue, even when only the two halogen lamps work. This has been fixed in the enhanced version.
  • The line "a roof rack for the family dog" in the Regina's description may be a reference to an incident in which Mitt Romney placed his dog in a carrier on the roof of a Chevrolet Caprice station wagon for a 650 mile trip.
