===GTA V===
The Hotknife handles well on-road and off-road. There's great acceleration to be had from the V8 up front, but its top speed is ultimately lower than the more aerodynamic cars found in the game. Its cornering isnt too good, which makes turning at high speed somewhat difficult; one notable thing about this car is its poor endurance in crashes, probably because of the exposed front suspension and radiator.

In GTA V, the Hotknife retains its original Ford Model A design, but it now spawns in a variety of two-tone colors. The Hotknife appears to be an early [[wp:Ford Model A|1920's Ford Model A]] that has been heavily modified, with lowered suspension, thick wheels, and a low roof.

―Legendarymotorsport.com description.

The Vapid Hotknife is a custom car appearing in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas and Grand Theft Auto V.

DesignEdit

GTA San AndreasEdit

In GTA San Andreas, the Hotknife is a late 1920's or early 1930's Hot Rod resembling a 1928 Ford Model A with modifications and a custom paint job. The car comes in only one paint scheme: purple with white accents and a black roof. Visits to Pay 'n' Spray garages have no effect on the car, nor can the car be modified at any modification garages, but features two variants; one with a covering on the V8 engine and one without a covering. It has capacity for only two people.

GTA VEdit

In GTA V, the Hotknife retains its original Ford Model A design, but it now spawns in a variety of two-tone colors. The Hotknife appears to be an early 1920's Ford Model A that has been heavily modified, with lowered suspension, thick wheels, and a low roof.

PerformanceEdit

For what the Hotknife lacks in being easy to find, it makes up for in being a very fun vehicle to drive. It handles well on-road and off-road. There's great acceleration to be had from the V8 up front, resulting in great air times when going off certain jumps but its top speed is ultimately lower than the more aerodynamic cars found in the game. Its cornering isn't too good, which makes turning at high speed somewhat difficult, but this can be solved by using the handbrake. One bad aspect about this car is its poor endurance in crashes because of the exposed front suspension and radiator, which is made up for by the suspension being so good that it rarely tips over.
