The '''Hotring Racer''' is a race car featured in ''[[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City]]'' and ''[[Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas]]''.
   
The '''Hotring Racer''' is a fast, unlockable race car featured in [[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City]] and [[Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas]].
+
==Description==
  +
The Hotring Racer is evidently a [[wp:Stock car racing|Stock car racing]] vehicle, distinguished by the rather unique design and paint schemes with [[Businesses|fictional business]] ads. They resemble stock cars of the mid-1980s.
   
== Description ==
+
In ''[[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City]]'', they are used in the "[[Hotring]]" side mission, while in ''[[Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas]]'', they are used in the "[[8-Track]]" side mission.
=== Overview ===
 
The Hotring Racers are among Grand Theft Auto's quickest cars. They feature in the stadium race challenges of GTA Vice City and San Andreas. Hotring Racers are presumably based on stock cars. Each Hotring Racer variant contains sponsor stickers, labeled with GTA's fictional [[businesses]]. There are currently three versions of the Hotring Racer.
 
   
=== Design and variants ===
+
== Design ==
The three Hotrings differ in performance and design. They resemble vehicles of the late '80s / early '90s (perhaps they are based on [[wp:Sprint Cup Series#1981-2007|NASCAR stock cars]]). The first variant (internally named "hotring") vaguely resembles a very generic GM G body. The second variant (internally named "hotrina") resembles a Chevrolet Lumina, and a 1985-1986 Ford Thunderbird. The third variant (internally named "hotrinb") shares minor design aspects with a Chevrolet Monte Carlo (rear side window), and a Buick Regal (front). The "hotring" in GTA Vice City lacked a roll cage and netting, unlike the "hotrina" and "hotrinb". This inconsistency was partially rectified in GTA San Andreas, which added netting to the vehicle.
+
The Hotring Racer comes in three different versions, although in both ''[[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City]]'' and ''[[Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas]]'', only one is available to the player as a reward, while the other two cannot be used without cheats. The three Hotring Racers differ in performance and design.
   
=== Performance (GTA San Andreas) ===
+
*The first variant ("<code>hotring</code>") vaguely resembles a very generic GM G body {{Fact}}.
Hotring Racers share the same top speed, but they have distinct handling characteristics. All three are rear-wheel-drive. The "hotrina" is the superior variant. With no oversteer, it sports the best grip of the three. The "hotrinb" oversteers a bit at high speed, and the "hotring" oversteers more easily than the "hotrinb". None of the Hotrings suffer from understeer. Oversteer occurs where it is to be expected: the corner exit. Minor handling differences make the Hotrings only slightly better or worse than one another.
+
*The second variant ("<code>hotrina</code>") resembles a 1985 Chevrolet Camaro (front), and a 1985 Chevrolet Cavalier (rear).
  +
*The third variant ("<code>hotrinb</code>") resembles a 1982 Ford Thunderbird (front), and a 1985 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme (rear).
   
=== Accessibility ===
+
The "hotring" in ''Grand Theft Auto: Vice City'' lacked a roll cage and netting, unlike the "hotrina" and "hotrinb." This inconsistency was partially fixed in ''Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas'', which added netting to the vehicle.
Under normal circumstances, the "hotring" is the only variant of the Hotring Racer available for the player to drive outdoors. The "hotrina" and "hotrinb" are only available via cheats or mods (such as the use of a garage editor or trainers). In the 8-Track race of GTA San Andreas, the player drives a "hotrinb". Elsewhere, it is unavailable.
 
   
=== Other ===
+
Depending of the version and the game, each variation will have the following sponsors:
The "hotring" bears only one number in each game: #27 in GTA Vice City, and #21 in GTA San Andreas. The "hotrina" and "hotrinb" have 6 different car numbers each, in each game:
 
*In GTA Vice City, the hotrina may spawn with the numbers #21, #34, #56 or #78, while the hotrinb may be marked with the numbers #14, #28, #65 or #69.
 
*In GTA San Andreas, the hotrina can be numbered #14, #45, #52, #67, #73 or #96, while the hotrinb may obtain the numbers #07, #26, #36, #60, #65 or #82.

The top speed and the acceleration are impressive and the grip is very good. Its resistance may not be one of the best, but is still a strong vehicle.

The "hotrinb" will be second-quickest, and the "hotring" will be third-quickest (both variants demand more driver's effort than the "hotrina"). Hotring Racers are rear-wheel drive, and allow drifting.

The Hotring Racer is a race car featured in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.

DescriptionEdit

The Hotring Racer is evidently a Stock car racing vehicle, distinguished by the rather unique design and paint schemes with fictional business ads. They resemble stock cars of the mid-1980s.

In Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, they are used in the "Hotring" side mission, while in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, they are used in the "8-Track" side mission.

Design Edit

The Hotring Racer comes in three different versions, although in both Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, only one is available to the player as a reward, while the other two cannot be used without cheats. The three Hotring Racers differ in performance and design.

  • The first variant ("hotring") vaguely resembles a very generic GM G body [citation/verification needed].
  • The second variant ("hotrina") resembles a 1985 Chevrolet Camaro (front), and a 1985 Chevrolet Cavalier (rear).
  • The third variant ("hotrinb") resembles a 1982 Ford Thunderbird (front), and a 1985 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme (rear).

The "hotring" in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City lacked a roll cage and netting, unlike the "hotrina" and "hotrinb." This inconsistency was partially fixed in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, which added netting to the vehicle.

Depending of the version and the game, each variation will have the following sponsors:

PerformanceEdit

Grand Theft Auto: Vice CityEdit

The Hotring Racers are fast vehicles, almost on par with most sport cars in the game, like the Infernus or the Cheetah. The top speed and the acceleration are impressive and the grip is very good. Its resistance may not be one of the best, but is still a strong vehicle. The vehicle's handling is average, but at higher speeds, it will suffer from understeer, though not as severe.

Grand Theft Auto: San AndreasEdit

In Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, the three Hotring Racers share the same top speed. Each variant handles differently. The "hotrina" boasts tremendous grip, superior to the "hotrinb" and "hotring" variants. On any driving course, the "hotrina" will be quicker than the "hotring" and "hotrinb." The "hotrinb" will be second-quickest, and the "hotring" will be third-quickest (both variants demand more driver's effort than the "hotrina"). Hotring Racers are rear-wheel drive, and allow drifting.
