Burnout Wiki

The Classic Hotrod is a car in Burnout 3: Takedown.

It is very heavy and lacks in control yet slides around constantly. It can't be used in the World Tour but it has great capabilities for takedowns in Road Rage.

It is built for aggressive driving while at the expense of being the slowest in its class alongside the Custom Coupe Ultimate.
