The Pfister 500 XLR8 (pronounced "five hundred eks-el-a:-eit") is a sports car featured only in Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars.


Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars

The 500 XLR8 is designed as a blue and red "tuner" car based on a two-door coupe or stock sports car (similar in appearance to GTA Chinatown Wars' Comet, regular and modified), being outfitted with a basic body kit, a large black spoiler, and purple neon underglows that light up at night.

The 500 XLR8 is a considerably good in performance, possessing an excellent acceleration and a good top speed. Its steering, however, is only moderately good, while the car's brakes are only responsive at lower speeds as it results in the car having a longer stopping distance at higher speeds; the car also has the tendency to lean towards the side when steering around tight corners. Its durability is, as expected, low.

  • Occasionally spawns on the northern half of the Francis International Airport, north of the multistory car park.
  • The 500 XLR8 is one of the three cars Huang Lee must steal in the mission The Wheelman.
  • The car is also unlocked once the player attains bronze medals in all Algonquin races, when it becomes available for purchase at the BOABO merchant.
  • During the Vigilante side-mission.


  • XLR8 is an homophone for "accelerate", which ties along with the car's great acceleration.
