The Cavalry Bootlegger is a modified version of the Hunter Cavalry and is available in Burnout Paradise as a part of the Legendary Cars Pack. It sports a Mexican flag on the roof. Players can click or P to sound the horn which is the same horn used on the General Lee from the show "The Dukes of Hazzard". This special version of the Cavalry itself has hidden headlamps instead of the four headlights in both sides, a brush guard mounted in its front bumper, unopenable doors and removed side windows.
It is still an excellent beginning car for those who desire Stunt Run events because of its greater boost and average speed over the standard Hunter Cavalry. It can perform Barrel Rolls and Flat Spins much like the Cavalry. The early Cavalry models have reduced stats to make them easier to drive for new Burnout players but makes the Bootlegger the fastest Cavalry in the game. This baby is sure to attract the attention of every cop wannabe within visual range in this vehicle. At the rate of speeds you'll be going in this compared to other Cavs, they don't need a good look to tell that it's a Bootlegger.
This custom Cavalry is made specially for those who live on the wrong side of the law. Press the Left Stick to sound the distinctive horns and go off something big!
