"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 webpage.

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

Design

3D Universe 

Designed as a two-door sports coupe, the Jester bears resemblance to several real life cars, such as the original Nissan Z, the final generation Toyota Supra, and a hint of Fiat Barchetta. But the design has a closer resemblance to the Toyota Supra.

HD Universe

The Jester now resembles the 2015 Honda/Acura NSX, with curvy features and distinct Japanese styling. The headlights and the hood are derived from the BMW i8. The headlights may also draw some inspirations from those of the Honda Civic LX.

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.

Southernsanandreassuperautos.com description.

The Festive Surprise update includes a new Jester with a racing livery from Dinka. It can be obtained from all three protagonist's garages in the story mode of the PS3/X360 version, or can be bought for $350,000 from Southernsanandreassuperautos.com in the story mode of the PS4/XOne version and GTA Online.

Performance

3D Universe

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.

HD Universe

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 one of the only all-wheel drive sports cars in the game. 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 it's large power output.

Crash deformation is excellent, and it can take multiple front end collisions without deforming the front wheels.

Modifications

Possible combinations of modifications that can be given to Jester's at Wheel Arch Angels in GTA San Andreas.

The Jester can only be modified at Wheel Arch Angels in Ocean Flats, San Fierro. However, some people prefer the car un-modded, due to its Urban style that it offers.

Trivia

General

GTA San Andreas

  • A model car called "Jester Crossflow" and looking like a tuned Jester can be found in the Zero RC shop in San Fierro.
  • In Customs Fast Track, CJ and Cesar Vialpando steal a red Jester from a container ship in Easter Basin, delivering the car to Doherty Garage. While the previous stolen vehicles spawn in the Wang Cars showroom after mission completion, the Jester is replaced by a Savanna.
  • In the beta version of the game, the Jester had Ferrari-styled rims.[1]
  • Sometimes, when you buy the Jester in the Exports/Imports ship, it will come in a unique license plate reading "X2 GAV," which probably means "given two times."

GTA V & Online

  • The Jester in GTA V is the first car to have its manufacturer's name on a spoiler of the car, likely for use in motorsport, the second being the Massacro.
  • The Jester in GTA V shares the same engine sound as the Coquette.
  • The "R" in Jester is colored red, mimicking the Type R badge famous among Honda cars, for example the First Generation Honda NSX.
  • The Jester in GTA V can be modified to resemble the real-life 2015 Honda NSX GT.
  • Like the second-generation Cavalcade, the GTA V Jester features daytime running lights, which work but are functionally useless and there only for cosmetic purposes.
  • Despite claiming to have a V6 engine, it actually has a V8 engine, seen from the rear window.
  • When heavily damaged, smoke will come out of the front end, like if its engine was at the front, despite being at the back. This is likely a developer oversight.
