SuperCharger is one of the 50 original cars from Carmageddon: TDR 2000. It first appears in Hollowood, being one of the first vehicles the player encounters in the game.

Design

The inspiration of this vehicle would be the Chrysler Australia Valiant Charger VH. A supercharger is a component to increase the output of a car engine, and the theme of the car's livery.

Performance

SuperCharger is an all-round vehicle, with a lackluster top speed of 214MPH fully upgraded, and inferior acceleration. It is not worth its price range.[1].

Driver

The driver, named "Guido Kikass" in the files, seems to be an Italian-American thug, wearing a white sleeveless shirt, a golden necklace, and dark blue pants.
