Known by its fans as "The Pocket Rocket", the Jansen P12 is grippy and maneuverable. If you want to get the back end out, thump the throttle down.

The Jansen P12 is a light stunt car. The handling is more than acceptable and it has incredible drifting ability acting like a true rear-wheel drive car. It steers well whilst drifting even at high speeds. It does well in Race, and especially, Stunt Runs events but is too weak for Road Rage and Marked Man events. The P12 is a good car to use until you get the Carson GT Concept or the Montgomery Hawker. Its low strength won't stand up to vehicles with a strength of 6 or more unless the P12 has a big advantage (space for a vertical takedown, for example). This vehicle excels as a versatile racer and stunter.

How to Unlock[]

The P12 resembles a Lamborghini Countach from its all-around styling although parts of the sides resemble the Lamborghini Diablo and Vector W8 Twin Turbo such as the doors. The trunk resembles a De Tomaso Pantera.
