Description
"I'm never more dangerous than when you're dead."

The Vulture is one of the 50 original cars from Carmageddon: TDR 2000. It first appears in HiRise, being encountered halfway through the game.

Design

It is a purple coupe with the underside of its grill missing, being replaced with a giant rotating saw. It has the number 34½ on its sides, and a livery which features a vulture eating a carcass.

Performance

While this vehicle is tad too expensive for the area it appears in, it has good acceleration when fully upgraded. However, the Top Speed ends up being a low 207mph. It is similar to the Femme Fatal in many ways, but slightly better[1].

Driver

The driver, named "Cameron Carrion" in the files, is hard to notice due to the tinted glass. The left half of his face and his chest are completely mechanical. Blue-tinted glasses can be seen in the right side of his face, and what appears to be makeup on his eye as well. He wears a blue coat and blue pants.

Trivia

  • As the unused driver quote suggests, Vultures mostly eat dead animals... which are called Carrion.
  • The Vulture is one of the vehicles featured in the game's demo. The car was colored blue, and the driver had a completely different design, as seen in the early texture from the gallery below.
