Design

GTA Vice City — GTA Vice City Stories

"Housewives' favourite."
- Official Vice City Bureau of Investigation file description, GTA Vice City.


The Regina between GTA Vice City and GTA Vice City Stories is designed as a quitessentially 1980s American station wagon that resembles a 1984-1988 Chevrolet Caprice Estate Wagon in the placement of the wood paneling and chrome strips on the sides; The shape of hood's front also echoes 70's Cadillacs. The grille resembles that of a mid-'80s Pontiac Parisienne. Unlike all these cars, the Regina is front wheel drive.

The Lost and Damned - Grand Theft Auto V

A Regina in The Lost and Damned (Rear quarter view).

In The Lost and Damned and GTA V, the Dundreary Regina is designed as a lean 1960s station wagon with aftermarket wheels, low ground clearance and a faded body color. The car's sides resemble those of 1960s GM B platform station wagons, for example the 1965-1970 Chevrolet Impala, or 1965-1969 Pontiac Bonneville; it is more likely from the Impala wagons as it has a lack of lower creases; the black roof, however seems to be more typical of Pontiac wagons. The taillight and rear chrome design resemble those of the 1965 Pontiacs, especially the Bonneville station wagon; the front loosely resembles most 1961 Pontiac models.

The car's engine also behaves similarly to various beater cars in GTA IV, emitting a worn out engine noise, occasionally taking a noticeably long time to start, and backfiring through its exhaust pipes. However, the engine and horn sounds are taken from the Rancher.

Performance

GTA Vice City — GTA Vice City Stories

Between GTA Vice City and GTA Vice City Stories, the Regina's acceleration is modest, and its speed is severely lacking - with the Regina's front-wheel drive powertrain, the underpowered V8 struggles to move this behemoth. Handling is sluggish, the car suffers from obvious understeer, and the brakes do a barely acceptable job of slowing the enormous chassis. The Regina is not especially sturdy, nor capable of withstanding heavy damage, and is a generally undesirable vehicle.

The Lost and Damned

With a significant cosmetic change, the Regina in The Lost and Damned sports several noticeable differences in its performance. Whilst the Regina still possesses average acceleration (0 to 60 mph in 10 seconds), the car can achieve considerably good speeds, with a maxiumum speed of an estimated 90 mph (145 kmph). Due to its heavier weight, the car is less nimble than its predecessors, occasionally requiring the aid of the e-brake in tight corners or high speed turns, similarly, its brakes can only do an average job stopping the car in moderate-to-high speeds.

  • While driving a Regina with a wanted level in in The Lost and Damned, the police dispatcher may mistakenly refer to the car as a "Declasse Rancher" or a "beat up SUV".

Locations

GTA Vice City
GTA San Andreas
  • Spawns around poor-class areas, such as eastern Los Santos.
  • Occasionally in rural areas.
GTA Vice City Stories
The Lost and Damned
  • Its only confirmed appearance in the game is during the Heavy Toll mission. There are a few ways to obtain one:
  • If the player hurriedly heads to a nearby road after the mission is complete, there is the slim chance that the car may spawn parked or in traffic.
  • Use the Slamvan from the mission and push a Regina to the Bohan safehouse.
  • Get in the Slamvan as fast as possible and drive away. The gang members will get in their cars and follow you. Drive to a safehouse, then kill the driver and any other occupants. Get out of the Slamvan, enter the Regina, pull it into the parking spot and finish the mission.
