A Remington in GTA San Andreas (Rear quarter view).

The Remington is a two-door lowrider featured in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.

Description

Design

The Remington is depicted as a 1970s two-door coupe, modified into a lowrider; accordingly, some Remingtons come equipped with hydraulics. The Remington generally resembles a 1977 or 1978 Lincoln Continental Town Coupe (as identified by the grille and chrome), but with unhidden headlamps, and a baroque stylized rear.

Performance

Performance wise, the vehicle may be described as average. With a rear wheel drive, very low ground clearance and moderately powerful engine, the Remington has an average-to-good top speed, but is susceptible to tailspins when cornering; it is best suited for urban travel.

A flameproof Remington can be found during the mission "High Stakes, Low Rider" for Cesar Vialpando.

Modifications

Several combinations of modifications that can be given to Remingtons from Loco Low Co..

Being a lowrider, Remingtons may be modified further at Loco Low Co. in Willowfield, Los Santos. The Remington boasts unique customizations featuring chrome skull-adorned bumpers to complement the car's baroque design. Remingtons come stock with color matching interior. A Pay 'n' Spray can change both each time used til desired interior color is achieved. Loco Low. Co only offers one car color, and it only paints the outside of the vehicle.

Trivia

Locations

  • Very common in Ganton and surrounding areas.
  • Spawns while driving a Perennial in Santa Maria Beach (and other areas) in Los Santos (Friday).
  • Spawns while driving a Euros in Easter Bay Airport, San Fierro (Thursday).
  • Unity Station, Little Mexico, Los Santos (only when wanted for export)
  • In rural areas
  • A way of getting the Remington is at the Lowrider Challenge. Usually, all the cars there are locked, and therefore cannot be obtained. The method of getting this car is to shoot the driver in the head through the windscreen. The should cause the body to fall out of the car, thus unlocking the doors and allowing the car to be taken. This can be done with any locked vehicle that has an occupant. Unfortunately though, CJ can be locked out if he leaves the vehicle. This can be an expensive mistake after modifications.
