"You brush the accelerator, and it happens: your ear drums shatter, your bowels surrender, a thousand angry horses stampede through all four titanium-reinforced wheels, the tires melt in a cloud of acrid smoke - but all you know is that you're going somewhere really, really fast. Short of saddling a crazed rhino, the Drift Tampa is the most brutal driving experience money can buy."
Southern San Andreas Super Autos description.

The Declasse Drift Tampa is a wide-body drifting variant of the Tampa added in Grand Theft Auto Online as part of the Cunning Stunts update.


Grand Theft Auto Online

The Drift Tampa is, as its name suggests, primarily based on the Tampa, which is based on the 1964-1973 Ford Mustang and 1970/1971 Dodge Dart. The modifications take clear influence from both the 1965 Ford Mustang Hoonicorn RTR, a famous drift car driven by Ken Block, and the 1969 Mustang RTR-X driven by Vaughn Gittin Jr.

Design-wise, the Drift Tampa has some major changes to its overall stance. The front fascia hasn't had too many alterations, however, the front quarter panel features extended bolt-on arches to create a wider, aggressive appearance. The entire car is now lowered and much wider than its standard counterpart. The back of the front arches have been omitted so the wheels are exposed. Directly behind the rear arches is a set of 4 strake lines for decoration. The sides of the car have had no major changes, other than an underlying side skirt and side-mounted exhausts exiting behind the doors. The rear-side windows feature rally netting and the side windows' glass is removed.

The bonnet features exposed velocity stacks with hood pins added for decoration. The dual front headlights are taped. A decorative roof scoop can be found and a sunstrip is equipped by default. Underneath the lower bumper and grille, a large splitter with logos and stickers on it is found with 2 splitter strut braces on each side.

Towards the rear fascia, the entire rear bumper has been modified. A large diffuser has been added which now extends its blades lower, towards the ground. The rear quarter panels also feature bolt-on fenders which are bolted on top of the original body work. A large, stock car ducktail spoiler is mounted to the rear.

The Drift Tampa does what it says on the tin; it has excellent drift capabilities, and doughnuts can be easily started and maintained with its all wheel drive layout. The high output engine gives it reasonable driving force, which is seen to be even more effective with modifications, giving the car an excellent amount of boost when setting off. The car tends to backfire, not as much as other extreme racing cars, however much more than a regular drift car. Its top speed is extremely high for its type, putting it into the sports class rather than a muscle car.

Unlike its stock counterpart, the Drift Tampa features an all-wheel-drive layout. This is because the Ford Mustang Hoonicorn RTR, the main inspiration for the Drift Tampa, also features all-wheel-drive. The vehicle sports a 4 speed gearbox hooked up to a large V8 engine, which features 8 small velocity stocks which pop through the cut-out in the hood.

  • The 'Regga Rum' livery is a direct homage to the Ford Mustang Hoonicorn RTR.
  • The 'Hotring Racer' livery is a reference to the Hotring Racers in GTA Vice City and GTA San Andreas.
  • The front bumper above the splitter appears to be bolted on in the center, meaning when damaged, it will pivot from the center, appearing to be a glitch.
  • The vehicles rivets, spoiler, rear diffuser and side skirts may have been influenced by the Furious 8 1968 Charger[1]
  • Unlike its original variant, the Drift Tampa is listed in the Sports class, despite its overall muscle car appearance.
