The Regina is a station wagon appearing in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories and in the Grand Theft Auto IV expansion pack, The Lost and Damned.

Design

GTA Vice City — GTA Vice City Stories

The Regina in the GTA III Era 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

In The Lost and Damned, the Dundreary Regina is designed as a 1960s station wagon with aftermarket wheels and low ground clearance. The car's sides resemble those of 1960s GM B platform station wagons, for example the 1966-1970 Chevrolet Impala, or 1965-1969 Pontiac Bonneville. 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.

Performance

Acceleration is modest, and 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.

Locations

GTA Vice City Stories

The Lost and Damned

  • During "Heavy Toll", its only appearance in the game. There is only one way to obtain this vehicle, and that is to take it to the Bohan safehouse; to prevent losing the Slamvan from this mission, it is best to push the Regina there using the Slamvan.
  • After "Heavy Toll", if the player quickly gets to a nearby road, there is the slim chance that a Regina may spawn parked or in traffic.
