Not to be confused with Karen.

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


The company is most likely based on the real-life manufacturer Toyota since most Karin cars are inspired by Toyota models.

However, the Sultan RS and Korean Mob Sultan, including the original Sultan, are modified like Subarus even though they are both based on the Toyota Altezza (also known as the 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.

  • "Karin" is a Japanese word for Red Sandalwood.
  • 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.
