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 (in GTA Vice City only) and chrome strips on the sides; The shape of hood's front also echoes 1970s Cadillacs. The grille resembles that of a mid-1980s Pontiac Parisienne.

Unlike all these cars, the Regina is front wheel drive.

The Lost and Damned — GTA V

In The Lost and Damned, 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 in TLAD also behaves similarly to various beater cars in the game, 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.

The Regina in GTA V builds on the design of TLAD's Regina, with an updated frontal fascia evoking 1970s styling, a mild bulge on the hood, and simulated woodie appliques. The vehicle is also designed without beater wear, and emits a more normal engine noise. The Regina is seen in two minor variants - one with a roof rack filled with luggage, and one without.

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 — GTA V

With a significant cosmetic change, the Regina in The Lost and Damned and GTA V 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 maximum 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.

Trivia

A Regina (background) alongside a Stallion in Bully.
  • The Regina cameos in Bully on an auto lift in the shop class room.
  • The interior of the Regina in The Lost and Damned is a near-duplicate of the Stallion's interior.
  • The Lost and Damned's Regina appears to lack B-pillars, yet features rear doors that are hinged to the front, where the B-pillar should be.
  • 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.
GTA V
  • Driven by pedestrians along Route 68.
  • Found parked at the Motel next to the Route 68 Los Santos Customs.
