Karin (Japanese: カリン) (pronounced 'kah·rin') is a Japanese automotive company in the HD Universe of Grand Theft Auto.

Overview

The company is most likely based on the real-life manufacturer Toyota since most Karin cars are inspired by Toyota models.

However, the Sultan RS and Korean Mob Sultan, including the original Sultan, are modified like Subarus even though they are both based on the Toyota Altezza (also known as the Lexus IS300); and the Intruder is based on an Infiniti model, though it has design cues from the Toyota MarkII and the Lexus LS430 (third gen). The Kuruma resembles more of a fusion between a Mitsubishi and a Subaru model, resembling nothing like any Toyota vehicles would.
