The Karin Sultan RS is a highly modified rally sports variant of the Sultan featured in Grand Theft Auto IV and Grand Theft Auto Online as part of the January 2016 Update.


Grand Theft Auto IV

The Sultan RS is a high-performance two-door coupé variant of the Sultan. The vehicle itself is based on the first generation Lexus IS (also known as the Toyota Altezza), with a few minor influences from a range of second generation Subaru Imprezas (notably the Impreza 2.5RS coupe). Although the Lexus IS or the Toyota Altezza never had a two-door coupé configuration, their influence remains obvious in the RS. The front and the complete shape of the car closely resembles that of a 2001 Lexus IS with a body kit, and of course a side exhaust system, which aren't usually found on Lexus models. The massive rear spoiler is usually a stock feature on the Subaru Impreza WRX STi. The rear of the car is highly reminiscent of the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution V. The letters RS stand for Rally Sport, which usually designates that the car is a highly tuned rally sports version of the stock model.

The car comes with a carbon fiber hood, roll cage, side exit large-bore exhaust, front-mounted intercooler, rear diffuser, racing rims, and low-profile tires. Some variants also have a carbon fiber trunk lid, hood scoop, and metallic paint. The car is available in several colors, including pink, which is rare in-game, although carbon fiber components (such as the hood) are always colored black. Its front intercooler reads 'ENDO'. It is equipped with a GPS system with a female voice, but only if the player leaves the "selected cars" (default) option in the audio menu.

Grand Theft Auto Online

This article or section refers to content in the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC renditions of Grand Theft Auto V and/or Grand Theft Auto Online, that is not featured on the Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 versions.
For a complete list of the features of the "enhanced" version of Grand Theft Auto V, please see here.

The Sultan RS returns to the enhanced version of Grand Theft Auto Online as part of the January 2016 Update, as an optional modification of the standard Sultan in Benny's Original Motor Works.

It holds the same design as in Grand Theft Auto IV, albeit with some cosmetic changes (notably the bumpers and the grille) and a few omissions, which can be fitted in Benny's Original Motor Works. It now has a variety of tuning modifications such as bumpers, diffusers, skirts, spoilers and fog-lights fitted, as well as unique liveries and vinyls. Like the normal Sultan and the GTA IV counterpart, the Sultan RS can have the "SULTAN RS" stripe on the sides and retains its side exhaust in its stock form.

Grand Theft Auto IV

The car's top speed is one of the highest due to the mighty power of its turbocharged engine. The car also accelerates like no other car in the game. As shown on the rocker cover badging and the model marque on the boot, it has a 3.5-litre engine according to the badges, with the model of a DOHC (double overhead camshaft) straight-4 engine, with a large turbo added for good measure. The badges also state the car is twin turbocharged, however the in-game model only features one turbo.

The Sultan RS utilizes an all-wheel drive system (30% front, 70% rear torque distribution balance respectively, according to files), to which the extraordinary off-the-line acceleration owes itself. The Sultan RS has a much lower ground clearance than the Sultan, which aids the superb cornering ability on the road. The car drives very well on asphalt, although a bit slippery and at times hard to control at high speeds. It is also great on dirt and sand, despite the fact that this really wasn't designed for such conditions.

Like the Infernus, Banshee, Buffalo, F620, and Bullet GT, the exhaust system of the Sultan RS is prone to letting unburnt fuel explode in flames from the sidepipe during throttle liftoff after high revving. The RS is also equipped with a dump (blowoff) valve on the turbo which causes a whipping/hissing sound when the throttle is released.

Grand Theft Auto Online

The Sultan RS improves upon the original Sultan with vastly superior acceleration and a slightly higher top speed, while retaining the all-wheel drive system (25% front, 75% rear torque distribution balance respectively, according to files). Braking power is significantly improved as well, enough so it is on par with other Supers. It handles very similarly to the standard counterpart, being grippy and engaging, yet unlike the normal version, it's also easier to spin out. Off-road, the Sultan RS is excellent, with next to no speed or handling loss while driving off-road. Crash deformation is poor.

Unlike its GTA IV counterpart, the engine is now a twin-cam Inline-6, lacking the turbocharger by default. It emits a unique, aggressive engine noise, similar to the tune used in GTA IV. It produces a large amount of torque sent through a 6-speed transmission to all four wheels. Just like IV, the dump valve sound is present, but to a lesser extent until upgraded. The exhaust arrangement is the same as IV by default, being single side-exit, but now in a 6-1 (6 to 1) exhaust manifold organisation rather than a 4-1. Its extreme valve timing causes a large amount of back firing, and when upgraded further it will produce a large amount of dump-valve sound with an increased rate of back firing.

Grand Theft Auto IV

Grand Theft Auto Online

Special Variants


Grand Theft Auto IV

  • Parked in the bushes behind the garage of a run-down mansion in Westdyke, Alderney; the mansion is located at the end of a dirt road, at one of the northernmost points of the island.
  • Appears in traffic when the player is already driving one.
  • Sometimes seen competing in Brucie's races, however stealing a competitor's car will end the race and count as a loss to the player. Fortunately, the presence of the RS may cause others to spawn in traffic on the way to the race, during it, or immediately after.
  • In The Ballad Of Gay Tony, a unique purple-blue one is used in some of the Drug War missions driven by the Korean Mob.
  • In The Ballad of Gay Tony, another unique Sultan RS is used in Drug Wars. It is black with a tannish-white roof and black hood.
  • Very rarely spawns in south Algonquin while driving Roman's Taxi or an Esperanto.

Grand Theft Auto Online

  • Can be received when upgrading a stock Sultan into a Sultan RS while at Benny's Original Motor Works for $795,000 (if stolen from the street) and $755,250 (if bought from Benny's website).


Grand Theft Auto IV

  • This vehicle can be sold to Stevie, fetching $2,500.


Grand Theft Auto IV

  • Driving the Sultan RS around often results in the rare Sentinel XS spawning more frequently, being both tuned racing cars puts them into the same category.
  • The Sultan RS in the beta version of GTA IV was available in a green and blue two tone color and a different spoiler. It can be seen in-game at the mini vendor stands around the city by using a sniper rifle to zoom in on the magazines. This pre-release Sultan RS can also be seen on the television screens inside the Stretch.
  • The Sultan RS' default radio stations are Electro-Choc and Radio Broker.

Grand Theft Auto Online

  • The "Street Drifter" livery available in Benny's Original Motor Works in GTA V is an homage to Sean's Lancer Evo from The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift.
  • The "Princess Robot Bubblegum" livery resembles a style of car modification (mainly visually) known as Itasha, a term of car decorating with Manga/Anime character decals and paint schemes, usually containing cute or sexually attractive females. This style is popular in Japan, mainly with Anime/Manga Otaku.
  • The "Karin Performance" livery looks strikingly similar to the Subaru World Rally Team livery, used on Subaru Impreza rally cars. With this, plus the right combination of modifications, it is possible to recreate the Subaru Impreza 22b STi Coupe, albeit with a modernised look.
    • The Sultan RS' "Karin Racing Auto Performance" text reads KRAP in acronym form, which is clearly pronounced as "Crap".
  • Through modifications it is possible to recreate the Sultan RS as it appeared in Grand Theft Auto IV in GTA Online. Modifications include Classic RS Bumper, Classic RS Rear Bumper, Full Roll Cage, Stock Exhaust, Stock Fenders, Remove Grille, Carbon Scooped Hood, Sunstrip, Pod Mounted Tacho, Sports Seats, Black Classic RS Stripe, Stock Roof, Stock Skirts, Painted Classic RS Wing, Street Suspension and Black Gruppe Z rims.
  • The Sultan RS, just like the Banshee 900R, can have its brace strut altered and modified. The color, material, shape and finish can all be altered. This stops the camber of the body increasing around hard-cornering which is caused by the suspension pushing into the bodywork.
  • The "Tarmac Attack" spoiler option on the Sultan RS was (at one point) slightly misaligned to the left. This was later patched in the Lowriders: Custom Classics update. [1]
  • Unlike GTA IV, the Sultan RS in GTA Online features a 6 cylinder engine, similar to its 4 door counterpart. The Sultan RS in GTA IV features a 4 cylinder engine, despite its 4 door counterpart featuring a 6 cylinder engine.
  • Its unique valve cover design bears resemblance to Nissan's inline-4 RB series engines.
  • If the Sultan RS is fitted with Light Covers, its headlights will not illuminate.
    • However, purchasing fog lights will circumvent this problem.
