However, the Sultan RS and [[Korean Mob]] Sultan are modified like Subarus even though they are both based on a Lexus (luxury subsidiary owned by Toyota) combined with a Mitsubishi; and the Intruder is based on Infiniti. But it should be noted that Toyota owns a small part of Subaru and the companies have or at least will make certain vehicles together. It can also be implied that Karin is a Japanese luxury car manufacturer.

The [[Kuruma]] is based on Mitsubishi and Subaru models, with little resemblance to a Toyota model.

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

OverviewEdit

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 is based on Mitsubishi and Subaru models, with little resemblance to a Toyota model.
