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.

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.

How to Unlock[]

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 American hot rod culture.
