Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars. It is one of the fastest cars in the game, and one of the three cars protagonist Huang Lee must steal in the mission The Wheelman. Otherwise, the car is only unlocked if the player gets a bronze medal in all Algonquin races, and then becomes available for purchase at the BOABO merchant. It may be based on the Mazda RX8 because of the body and headlight design, and the fact that the characters, R, X, and 8, are in the car's name. The "XLR8" part of the name is an onomatopoeia for accelerate.
One place where this car spawns is at the Francis Intl. Airport, in the upper half of the parking lot.
