The Circuit City Hot Rod is one of the sponsor cars in Burnout Paradise that can only be unlocked through a code. It has exactly the same model as the Carson Hot Rod Coupe but with a Circuit City themed livery.

Like its counterpart, it is a straight-line hot rod that can wheelie from low speeds. Its handling is exactly the same as the coupe making it a great choice for Stunt Runs but it is not the best choice for any outside event because of its wheelie ability.


This hot red hot rod is brought to you exclusively by Circuit City. Take it for a spin and point those front wheels at the sky.

How to Unlock

Enter "circuitcity" as a case-sensitive code in the North American version of the game.

Note: A Burnout License is required to drive this vehicle offline.


The Circuit City Hot Rod shares the same model known as the Hot Rod from Burnout 2: Point of Impact. In real life the Hot Rod looks similar to a Ford Model A or B used in the American Hot Rod culture. It also resembles an older Bugatti model.


  • In Burnout Paradise's Free February Update, the Carson Circuit City Hot Rod's speed stat was lowered from 6 to 5.
  • It was made unavailable for players to unlock after the release of the Free February Update. If players entered the code before the update, then they can still access it.
  • This vehicle cannot be used in an Online Cops & Robbers game.
