The Vulcar Ingot is a car available in Grand Theft Auto IV and Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars. It is a wagon that looks much like a Nissan Stagea WC34, such as the taillights and the side profile, ect.; but it being manufactured by Vulcar might suggest that it is based on a fourth generation Volkswagen Jetta. However the Stagea is a more performance-orientated car, where the Ingot doesn't seem to be. After Niko Bellic collects all thirty cars for Stevie, Stevie agrees to purchase cars from Niko, with the Ingot fetching $1,000.
The Ingot has a high-pitched engine noise and low reliability, suggesting a V-5 engine or V-6, reminiscent of Volkswagen's trademark V-5 engine or their version of the V-6, the VR-6; these engines in the fourth generation VW Jetta both have less than 200 horsepower. The engine in-game may stop working after a few major crashes. The Ingot isn't very fast, making it a poor choice for car chases.
A special R type version can occasionally be found; it's an Ingot with removed badging and new grill, a small spoiler with a small body kit, and candy red paint. This version can mostly be found in the Hove Beach area, as it's driven by Russian Mafia members.
