A very good car is waiting for you in Kaptel 8 on the Eastside right next to the gun shop. The Lassiter Series 75 Hollywood is a stretch limousine with large wheel arches and tunes 168 kW. The car is logically heavier than the two-seater, but it's a lot of fun to drive because of the horsepower. Five bolts have to be cracked, which increases the value considerably. Engine tuning costs $ 1,152.
Good cars can also be found on the Eastside. You'll find a lot of lassiters in Chapter 9, and a Berkley Kingfisher is just a little way north of the phone booth. As the two-seat little brother of the Lassiter, it delivers 168 kW fully tuned, but drives a lot faster. There are five bolts to crack, the engine tuning costs $ 1,301. Last but not least, after Luca is done, there is his two-seater convertible, the Shubert Frigate. A fine car that tunes 134 kW as a lightweight, at a cost of around $ 1,500.
