Currently, GTA Online players can get the Karin Sultan RS Classic from Southern San Andreas Super Autos. Although this is a new car added with the Los Santos Tuners update, it could also be made available as a prize ride vehicle in the coming weeks; so if you're not feeling flush with cash, maybe hold off buying it, if you'd rather win it instead.

What Is The Top Speed Of The Karin Sultan RS Classic ?

Fans interested in taking the Sultan RS Classic for a spin will be interested to know that the car’s top speed on the game files is 91.03 mph (146.50 km/h).

This is the top speed for the Sultan RS Classic in-game, but has not been tested yet by the GTA car expert Broughy1322.

Soon enough though we should have some on-track testing to show its speed in a fast straight-line speed as well as track times. Just like the one below:

Is The Karin Sultan RS Classic Worth It?

We're holding off a full judgement until we see the in-game speeds of the car from Broughy1322's testing, but the early suggestions are that, yeh it's ok, but not great.

Though it's got a slight variation in the design, it's hard to escape that you're buying essentially the same looking car as the original Sultan RS, or Sultan Classic.

Granted, the Sultan RS is a different vehicle class. But the Sultan Class is the same vehicle class and costs about 60k less.

It's a decent enough car, but based on Just Jake Club, the acceleration is a little sluggish.

Also if you're limited on cash, you're probably better spending the money on one of the other new Tuner cars, like the Emperor Vectre, or Pfister Comet S2.

It's not a bad car, there are just better ways to spend your money.
