VE3mWyO.png


Another great vehicle returning from Vice City (and San Andreas too I guess) - a stock car. Has 30 racing liveries available.

Description: You're either a Hotringer, or you're not, and here's how you tell. If your first instinct isn't to crack a beer on the radiator grille, polish the hood with a mouthful of spit, slap it on the rear fender, call it a "classy gal" and belch the national anthem, then you're not the target audience. On your way.
Price: $830,000
Available from Southern San Andreas Super Autos

This will be fun, too bad it's not called "Hotring Racer" like in the past.

 

This is my one

Late 90s/early 00s is a weird era to choose from, but hey, never ever did I think we'd get a legit stockcar..

About time we get a good old fashioned Monte Carlo-style Stock Car

I waw even talking about it in the b*tch and moan thread too (about how we have a bunch of Stock Cars but not the one everyone knows the best)

The Hotring Sabre is in the sports class, and definitely has the top speed to keep up with other cars.

It doesn't spin out nearly as often when brushing paint, like the other cars.
Brought back lots of memories, and great top speed.
Make sure to buy one ASAP if you're doing Hot Ring races...

Yes, but the steering is somewhat heavy, a more understeer feeling until you push it too much, then the car tries to kill you. Its difficult to get it to that point, however. Braking is atrocious as well.

Edit: To unlock the final ten liveries, you have to participate in 2-20 races to get them. The final livery is reminiscent of Dale Earnhardt Sr.s famous black livery, albeit with the number 5.

If we can get a Hotring Sabre why can't we get the Sabre from GTA 4(the one that has the same shape as the Willard Faction and not the Sabre Turbo we have in GTA 5) ?

Will there be a Black 3 and Rainbow Warrior paint scheme, however?

Late 90s/early 00s is a weird era to choose from, but hey, never ever did I think we'd get a legit stockcar..

It's very late 80's/early 90's and makes sense for two main reasons.

1, it's a callback to the Hotring Racer from Vice City and San Andreas. Vice City being set in 1986, and San Andreas being set in 1992. 

2, Days of Thunder came out in 1990, and this was the Chevrolet stock car template used both in that movie and in real life NASCAR:
d1314a7e93e8b9c4c1335ea8e124e165.jpg

1989-1992 Chevy Lumina stock car template. That's what the GTA V Hotring Racer is. Makes perfect sense.

That's not how GTA Online works, you'll have to direct your wishes towards Rockstar, not us.

Great sounding car. Very much like the trophy truck. And Working belts on the engine too. That's awesome!!

I didn't think I'd ever be interested in an American stock car, but here we are.

They gave it a nice lumpy idle sound but damn the rest of the engine sound is terrible. Should've just copy-pasted the Trophy Truck engine sounds and it would've been perfect.

What sound would you say it's close to?

Edit: User above you says it sounds like the Trophy Truck lol

the idle sound is similar to the TT, but the sound through the rest of the RPM range is the same generic engine sound used in a few other basic cars.
