The Sultan, manufactured by Karin, is a vehicle in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Grand Theft Auto IV and Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars.

Description

GTA San Andreas

The Sultan is based on the early 1990s GC Chassis Subaru Impreza WRX (or WRX STi). Like the Subaru, it has a small, yet powerful turbocharged engine, and a four wheel drive layout. Its performance is comparable to that of the sports coupes and supercars in the game, whilst its grippy four wheel drive system makes it particularly controllable; it less prone to spinning out than the rear wheel drive cars. The Sultan is the fastest four-door car in the game.

Players favor the Sultan for drive-by attacks, due to its four seat capacity and ability outrun rival gang or police vehicles; it also has a large array of modifications.

Modifications

GTA IV — GTA Chinatown Wars

Revealed to be manufactured by Karin, the GTA IV Sultan draws upon the Japanese import styling of the previous Sultan, although no longer resembling one car. It has a 1998-2005 Lexus IS inspired front end; the sides (including the bottom halves of the doors) and rear are influenced heavily by those of the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution V, but the greenhouse (including the top halves of the doors) is much closer to the 1998-2004 Lexus IS.

The Sultan remains fast, grippy and engaging, due to a powerful 3.5L Twin Turbo V6 engine and all wheel drive system. Whilst many similarly sized sedans offer similar straight line performance, the added stability of the Sultan allows fast cornering, making it a perfect choice for races or getaways. It is truly one of the best 4 door cars in the game.

After collecting all thirty cars for Stevie he agrees to purchase cars from Niko Bellic, with the Sultan fetching $3,500.

Alarm

In GTA IV, non-tuned Sultans come with alarms. The most popular alarms are the horn and beep versions.

Variants

There are three varieties of the Sultan: the regular car, the tuned car, and the Sultan RS. The regular Sultan and tuned Korean Mob Sultan are both four door sedans, while the Sultan RS is a two door coupe. The standard Sultan is modestly styled, with a leaning towards performance, indicated by the small hood scoop, sports rims, and its reasonable performance. The Korean Mob Sultan comes with a blue paint job and a large rear spoiler, and bigger hood scoops, giving the car a resemblance to the Subaru Impreza WRX STi. Regular Sultans may also appear with custom paint jobs and spoilers, but no enhanced performance.

During Stevie's text message car thefts, he will ask Niko to steal a Sultan in Alderney. This is a unique Sultan, with black rims and a slightly more vibrant shade of blue in its paintjob.
