The [[Vulcar]] '''Ingot''' is a station wagon featured in ''[[Grand Theft Auto IV]]'', ''[[Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars]]'', ''[[Grand Theft Auto V]]'' and ''[[Grand Theft Auto Online]]''.
=== Design ===
 
The Ingot is a station wagon which appears to be based off the Audi 100/A6 (C4 Chassis).  It is nothing like a Passat; a passat has a curved front end, curved A pillars, and seperate taillights.  The Audi A6 (1992-1997) has a straighter front end, straighter pillars, a grill that sits just proud of the headlights, and a rear light bar that goes across the hatch, just like the Ingot. The GTA IV version appears visually similar to the Nissan Stagea WC 34, including the lights, grille and side profile of the car. However, the Stagea was never officially sold outside of Japan or in Left-hand-drive.  The car is extremely underpowered, much like Audi's 2.8 liter V6 at the time, and it sounds absolutely nothing like the trademark sound of a VR6.  The Ingot is not as performance-oriented as the Stagea, despite sporting racing pedals and a racing steering wheel.

The Ingot is a station wagon which appears to be primarily based on the [http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4080/4749560769_51217056e6.jpg 1996-2001 Nissan Stagea] and [[wp:Audi A6|1992-1997 Audi 100/A6 (C4 Chassis)]] with influence of the [[wp:Volkswagen Passat (B4)|1993-1997 Volkswagen Passat (B4)]]. The car is also a subtle nod to [[wp:Volvo|Volvo]] station wagons with its rigid construction and boxy appearance, though there is little similarity in overall appearance. Despite sporting a racing steering wheel and pedals, the Ingot is underpowered and not at all performance-oriented, befitting of its family car nature. The car's appearance remains unchanged in ''GTA V'', though it is now a front-wheel drive.

The Ingot has a low-powered straight 4 engine, laid transversely, coupled to a 5 speed gearbox in an FF drive-train layout. The Ingot isn't very fast; after finding fifth gear (which in itself is a challenge), the car bogs down and hesitates to shift back into fourth, making highway driving painfully slow at times. The Ingot does, however, have decent handling, and its suspension is not too hard or too soft, making it perfect for city driving. Fittingly apt for its Volvo roots, the car is very rigid, and has average crash deformation.

The Ingot has a low-powered 6 cylinder engine (somewhat reminisce Audi's underwhelming 2.8 liter V6, used in the C4 chassis wagon), coupled to a 4 speed gearbox in an FF drive-train layout. The Ingot isn't very fast; after finding 4th gear, the car hesitates or cannot up-shift at all when on wide-open throttle. Its engine is not resilient, and may stop working after only a few crashes. The Ingot does, however, have decent handling, and its suspension is not too hard or too soft, making it perfect for regular street driving in Liberty City. It can go 0-60 in 12.3 seconds with a top speed of 150 MPH (250 KM/H). It is worth about $10,000.

A special "VD90R" variant of the car can occasionally be found in GTA IV; it's an Ingot with removed badging and new grill, a discrete spoiler and body kit, and candy red paint. This variant is driven by the [[Russian Mafia]]. Is based on the Nissan Stagea 260RS Autech Version with the name being derived from Volvo's 850R.

"Reputed to be the safest car ever made, this classic Vulcar station wagon has been the vehicle of choice for really terrible drivers for 20 years. The closest thing you'll ever get to a tank for under $10k."
Southernsanandreassuperautos.com description.

The Vulcar Ingot is a station wagon featured in Grand Theft Auto IV, Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online.

Design Edit

The Ingot is a station wagon which appears to be primarily based on the 1996-2001 Nissan Stagea and 1992-1997 Audi 100/A6 (C4 Chassis) with influence of the 1993-1997 Volkswagen Passat (B4). The car is also a subtle nod to Volvo station wagons with its rigid construction and boxy appearance, though there is little similarity in overall appearance. Despite sporting a racing steering wheel and pedals, the Ingot is underpowered and not at all performance-oriented, befitting of its family car nature. The car's appearance remains unchanged in GTA V, though it is now a front-wheel drive.

The Ingot has a low-powered straight 4 engine, laid transversely, coupled to a 5 speed gearbox in an FF drive-train layout. The Ingot isn't very fast; after finding fifth gear (which in itself is a challenge), the car bogs down and hesitates to shift back into fourth, making highway driving painfully slow at times. The Ingot does, however, have decent handling, and its suspension is not too hard or too soft, making it perfect for city driving.

Variants Edit

A special "VD90R" variant of the car can occasionally be found in GTA IV; it's an Ingot with removed badging and new grill, a discrete spoiler and body kit, and candy red paint. This variant is driven by the Russian Mafia. Is based on the Nissan Stagea 260RS Autech Version with the name being derived from Volvo's 850R.

  • The Ingot can be seen in West Broker, where the Russian presence is strong. They can also rarely be found in Bohan. The VD90R variant is usually found in the Hove Beach area, where it is driven by Russian Mafia members.
  • Spawns more frequently when driving a Hakumai.
  • Sometimes when the player starts the game and loads a savegame (especially in the Hove Beach safehouse), they can find an Ingot with a missing front bumper parked outside.
  • Spawns often near the beginning of the storyline. After a few missions, however, it becomes one of the most difficult cars to find in the game.
