Available to the player only after a mandatory requirement of 100 completed taxi fares (50 in GTA Advance), the Borgnine in GTA III is a modified [[Cabbie]] with a red body and bloody spikes on the front and rear bumpers, while the GTA Advance rendition retains some of the qualities of the GTA III rendition, lacking the spike bumpers and serving as the only other taxi other than the game's [[Taxi]]. The Borgnine's handling is far superior to that of the car it's based on.
