The Hot Rod is a vehicle in Burnout 2: Point of Impact. It has quick acceleration and handles well but has a low top speed compared to its other stats. The Hot Rod is rather slow but has intense acceleration at the beginning of an event making it all-round good for Races.

The Hot Rod is revisited in subsequent games with subtle modifications. For example, the engine is exposed in later entries.
