The Karin Kuruma is a four door Sports car available in the GTA Online Heists Update. The overall shape and front fascia of the car seems to be based on the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X while the rear end is based on a 2015 Subaru WRX STI. It is available in both the normal version and the armored version.
According to Southernsanandreassuperautos.com the Karin Kuruma has 6 gears, a top speed of 147 mph and weighs 2866lbs. It also has 4WD capability and is very maneuverable. Even with the Turbo already equipped, the player can add another Turbo for a significantly higher acceleration. Due to the lightweight chassis on both versions of the car, it has the tendency to lift onto two wheels and even flip during sharp, high speed turns. It is slightly bested by the Sultan in terms of top speed. However, in terms of grip, the Karin Sultan stands a heavy ground when attacking corners at high speed. The Karin Kuruma tends to slide attempting to attack corners at similar speeds, making it feel as if the Kuruma has a non-existent ABS.
Karin Kuruma (Armored)
The Karin Kuruma (Armored) is an armored variant of the Kuruma. It was introduced to GTA Online as part of the Heists Update.
This vehicle is armored similarly to the Imponte Duke O’Death. It is featured in the Fleeca Job – Kuruma heist setup and in The Fleeca Job as the getaway vehicle. The performance is slightly different from the stock Kuruma. It shares the same traits as the normal Kuruma, but it is much more durable against collisions and gunshots, due to its bulletproof windows. One drawback of the armored version over the normal version is that view is significantly obstructed in FPS view.
