"Signature Dundreary grille, opulent wood panelling, roomy luggage compartment, and a roof rack for the family dog - the ultimate vehicle to live the 1960s suburban dream today."
Southernsanandreassuperautos.com description.

The Regina is a four-door station wagon which has appeared in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, The Lost and Damned, Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online. It is manufactured by Dundreary in the HD Universe.

Design

GTA Vice City — GTA Vice City Stories

The Regina between GTA Vice City and GTA Vice City Stories is designed as a quintessentially 1980s American station wagon which resembles a 1984-1988 Chevrolet Caprice Estate Wagon in the placement of the wood paneling and chrome strips on the sides; The shape of hood's front also echoes 1970s Cadillacs. The grille resembles that of a mid-1980s Pontiac Parisienne. Unlike all these cars, the Regina is front wheel drive.

The Lost and Damned

In The Lost and Damned, the Dundreary Regina is designed as a lean 1960s/1970s station wagon with 1960s GM rally wheels, low ground clearance and faded paint. The vehicle's overall body design and greenhouse are inspired by the 1965-1978 Chrysler C platform (1965-1968) and the (1969-1973) Town & Country. The front and rear fascias also bear close resemblances to those of the Town & Country station wagon.

GTA V

The Regina in GTA V is similar to its GTA TLAD counterpart, but with some styling differences. It now bears a closer resemblance to the 1973 Plymouth Fury Sport Suburban, with very similar headlights, roof racks and the wooden paneling along the side of the car. The taillights are mostly an original design, with cues from the 1967-1972 Chevrolet Chevelle/Malibu Wagon. The vehicle has lost its beater appearance from The Lost and Damned, and is now found in a restored condition, and may occasionally be found with different roof attachments such as a large chrome roof rack, which may sometimes have various amounts of boxes and suitcases tied to it.

Performance

GTA Vice City — GTA Vice City Stories

Between GTA Vice City and GTA Vice City Stories, the Regina's acceleration is modest, and its speed is severely lacking - with the Regina's front-wheel drive powertrain, the underpowered V8 struggles to move this behemoth. Handling is sluggish, the car suffers from obvious understeer, and the brakes do a barely acceptable job of slowing the enormous chassis. The Regina is not especially sturdy, nor capable of withstanding heavy damage, and is a generally undesirable vehicle.

The Lost and Damned

With a significant cosmetic change, the Regina in The Lost and Damned sports several noticeable differences in its performance. It is powered by a high displacement V8 engine coupled to a 5-speed manual transmission in an FR layout. Whilst the Regina still possesses average acceleration (0 to 60 mph in 10 seconds), the car can achieve considerably good speeds, with a maximum speed of 170 mph. Due to its heavier weight, the car is less nimble than its predecessors, occasionally requiring the aid of the handbrake in tight corners or high speed turns. Braking power is correspondingly below average.

The car is also classified as one of the beater cars in GTA IV, emitting a knocking sound from the engine at high revs, occasionally taking a noticeably long time to start, and backfiring through its exhaust pipe.

GTA V

The Regina's acceleration is mediocre and severely lacking in performance. Like in The Lost and Damned, it has some difficulty during high-speed maneuvers and turns due to the small tires and heavy body. Braking is severely sub-par, but like its predecessor, it can still achieve a reasonable top speed. The Regina backfires when being driven, and sometimes stalls when being started.

The Lost and Damned

  • The Regina's only confirmed appearance in the game is during the mission Heavy Toll. The easiest way to obtain this vehicle is to take it to the Bohan Safehouse.
  • To prevent losing the Slamvan from this mission, it is best to push the Regina there using the Slamvan.
  • If the player hurriedly heads to a nearby road after Heavy Toll, there is a chance that the car may spawn parked or in traffic. Of course, passing near the Bohan Safehouse will increase its availability.
  • If the player takes a Regina during the mission and leaves the area, failing the mission and reappearing in Elizabeta's house, quickly go to the nearest street where there might be a few Reginas.
  • If Johnny gets in the Slamvan quickly during the mission and drives away, the gang members will get in their cars and follow him. Drive to the Bohan safehouse, kill them, enter a Regina and park it.
  • Commonly spawned in traffic if the player is driving the Regina.

Trivia

General

GTA Vice City, San Andreas and Vice City Stories

Regina-GTAVC-Screenshot

Screenshot of a beta Regina with three rear lights, GTA VC.

  • In the beta, the Regina's rear clusters had a different design.
  • If the player damages the rear hatch door in GTA: Vice City Stories, the door will have a darker color.

​The Lost and Damned

  • The interior of the Regina in The Lost and Damned is a near-duplicate of the Stallion's interior.
  • The Lost and Damned's Regina appears to lack B-pillars, yet features rear doors that are hinged to the front, where the B-pillar should be. This is most likely a designer oversight.
  • The Lost and Damned version also has a similar appearance to the Perennial from GTA Liberty City Stories and GTA Vice City Stories.
  • Regina&Stallion-Bullyappearance

    A very easy and sure-fire way to acquire the Regina without the failure of the mission Heavy Toll is to kill the Angels of Death and take the Slamvan required, then push a Regina until it is close to the South Bohan safehouse and then get in the Regina and park it in the space, then you can continue the mission
  • The Regina, like other beaters, takes a long time to start. Rapidly tapping accelerate or reverse, as if the player was hot-wiring a car, will make it start faster.
  • Unlike every other beater, the Regina does not get a "This is the best I could do with this wreck" notification when re-spraying it at a Pay'n'Spray.
  • While driving a Regina with a wanted level in TLAD, the police dispatcher may mistakenly refer to the Regina as a "Declasse Rancher" or a "beat-up SUV".
  • The car shares its engine sound with the Bobcat in TLAD. It also shares its handling with the Solair.

GTA V

  • The vehicle's engine noise, horn and possible handling is shared with the Peyote in GTA V.
  • Prior to the I'm Not a Hipster Update, the Regina was the only car in the HD universe to have luggage on the roof, now followed by the Glendale, Panto and Pigalle.

  • When the headlights on the Regina are modified, two halogen headlamps and two xenon headlamps will appear instead of four total xenon headlamps, as shown. The beams stay xenon blue, even when only the two halogen lamps work.
  • The line "a roof rack for the family dog" in the Regina's description may be a reference to an incident in which Mitt Romney placed his dog in a carrier on the roof of a Chevrolet Caprice station wagon for a 650 mile trip.
