Karin (Japanese: カリン) (pronounced 'kah·rin') is a Japanese automotive company in the HD Universe of Grand Theft Auto.

Overview

The company is most likely based on the real-life manufacturer Toyota since most Karin cars are inspired by Toyota models. The Sultan RS and Korean Mob Sultan, including the original Sultan, are similar in design to modified Subarus, as well as taking inspiration from the Toyota Altezza/Lexus IS300, and the Intruder is based on an Infiniti model, though it has design cues from the Toyota MarkII and the Lexus LS430 (third gen). The Kuruma is based on Mitsubishi and Subaru models, with little resemblance to a Toyota model.

Divisions

Karin Performance

SultanRS-Monk-SS14

The Karin Performance livery applied to the Sultan RS.

Karin Performance, Karin Auto Racing Performance and Karin Automobiles are a racing division of Karin. They are responsible for the livery under the same name which can be applied to the Sultan RS in GTA Online. The livery is based on the Subaru Impreza WRX World Rally Team skin, suggesting the division is based on the Subaru World Rally Team.

Sponsoring

The rally team appears to have many companies sponsoring them as seen on their Sultan RS livery, including:

Trivia

  • "Karin" is a Japanese word for Red Sandalwood.
  • Karin having vehicles with Subaru designs despite being based on Toyota makes sense in that, as of today, Toyota owns a large portion of share of Fuji Heavy Industries (Subaru's parent company).
  • Karin is pronounced as Kareen by a Karin sponsor on Fame or Shame, but it is pronounced as "Karen" during the advertisement for the Dilettante featured in GTA IV.
    • The name might also be a reference to Toyota's Carina series.
