The Ingot is a station wagon which in general resembles the [[wp:Volkswagen Passat#Passat Mk4 (B4, 1993–1997)|Volkswagen Passat Mk4]], bearing some similarties to[[File:Ingot_badges.png|thumb|Badging on the Ingot.]] the [[wp:Nissan Stagea|Nissan Stagea]] WC34 (note the taillights and the side profile). Its engine noise is high-pitched, reminiscent of Volkwagen's trademark VR5 and VR6 engines (most likely a VR6 because it has 6 manifold pipes indicating a 6 cylinder engine), as seen in the fourth-generation VW Jetta; both have less than 200 horsepower. The Ingot is not as performance-oriented as the Stagea, despite sporting racing pedals and a racing steering wheel.

The Ingot has a low-powered 6 cylinder engine, coupled to a 4 speed gearbox in an FR drivetrain layout. The Ingot isn't very fast; after finding 4th gear, the car hesitates or cannot up-shift at all when on wide-open throttle. Its engine is not resilient, and may stop working after only a few crashes. The Ingot does, however, have decent handling, and its suspension is not too hard or too soft, making it perfect for regular street driving in Liberty City. It can go 0-60 in 12.3 seconds with a top speed of 150 MPH (250 KM/H). It is worth about $10,000.

The Vulcar Ingot is a sedan featured in Grand Theft Auto IV, Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars and Grand Theft Auto V.

Description Edit

Design Edit

The Ingot is a station wagon which appears to be primarily based based off the 1992-1997 Audi 100/A6 (C4 Chassis) with influence of the 1993-1997 Volkswagen Passat (B4) and a rear-end more closely resembling a 1996-2001 Nissan Stagea. The car is also a subtle nod to Volvo station wagons with its rigid construction and boxy appearance, though there is little similarity in overall appearance. Despite sporting a racing steering wheel and pedals, the Ingot is underpowered and not at all performance-oriented, befitting of its family car nature.

Performance Edit

The Ingot has a low-powered 6 cylinder engine (somewhat reminiscent of Audi's underwhelming 2.8 liter V6, used in the C4 chassis wagon), coupled to a 5 speed gearbox in an FF drive-train layout (interestingly, the car is rear wheel drive in GTA IV). The Ingot isn't very fast; after finding fifth gear (which in itself is a challenge), the car bogs down and hesitates to shift back into fourth, making highway driving painfully slow at times. The Ingot does, however, have decent handling, and its suspension is not too hard or too soft, making it perfect for city driving. It can go 0-60 in 12.3 seconds with a top speed of 150 MPH (250 KM/H). It is worth $9,000. Fittingly apt for its Volvo roots, the car is very rigid, and has average crash deformation.

Variant Edit

Ingot-GTA4-VD90R-front

The "VD90R" variant driven by members of the Russian Mafia in GTA IV (Rear quarter view).

A special "VD90R" variant of the car can occasionally be found in GTA IV; it's an Ingot with removed badging and new grill, a discrete spoiler and body kit, and candy red paint. This variant is driven by the Russian Mafia. Is based on the Nissan Stagea 260RS Autech Version with the name being derived from Volvo's 850R.
