Burnout Wiki

The streets of Paradise City have a new king! The Olympus is the biggest and strongest vehicle Hunter has ever produced. Feeble rivals and insignificant commuters now have all the impact of bugs hitting the windshield. It may be slow, and has no boost, but drivers with the skill to coax it up to top speed will be damn near unstoppable.

The Hunter Olympus is a vehicle in Burnout Paradise that was added released after the Cagney Update as one of the two online only vehicles. It has no boost system like the Nakamura Rai-Jin Turbo and the Burnout Bikes. A white boost bar does appear when players enter Showtime whilst online in the Olympus.

It has a both modern and powerful appearance which emphasizes its massive weight and size making it capable of plowing through traffic including buses. Its acceleration is extremely slack but the Olympus can become unstoppable once it reaches its top speed. Its handling is very numb and creates an unprecedented difficulty when navigating sharp corners or making U-turns.

The Olympus is an ideal vehicle for Online Road Rage and Online Marked Man events due to its tremendous strength but not for Online Races due to its poor acceleration and handling.
