The Borgnine is a bonus taxi available in Grand Theft Auto III and Grand Theft Auto Advance.

DescriptionEdit

Available to the player only after a mandatory requirement of 100 completed taxi fares (50 in GTA Advance), the Borgnine in GTA III is a modified Cabbie with a red body and bloody spikes on the front and rear bumpers, while the GTA Advance rendition retains some of the qualities of the GTA III rendition, lacking the spike bumpers and serving as the only other taxi other than the game's Taxi, being the only Cabbie in that game, making the vehicle somewhat special in both games since it's a bonus in both games and it's a unique modeled Cabbie (the only in GTA Advance making the vehicle more much special in that game) The Borgnine's handling is far superior to that of the car it's based on.

The Borgnine's name is a homage to Ernest Borgnine, who starred in the 1981 movie Escape from New York as a cab driver named "Cabbie" in a prison-converted Manhattan; in the movie, Cabbie also drives a Checker Marathon from which the Cabbie taxi and Borgnine are based on. The Borgnine's bumpers are perhaps a nod to Cabbie's hazardous profession in the crime-infested prison.

Trivia Edit

  • Like the Cabbie, the passengers will pass through its rear fender when getting in.
  • By the bloody spikes, is probably a reference to the 1997's game Carmageddon
