Key on display in pawn shop

The key for the sports car can be purchased from Royal Flush Plaza’s second floor Just in Time Payday Loans pawnshop for $500,000.[1] ($450,000 with one Bargaining 1 Magazine and $400,000 with Bargaining 2).

It is one of the fastest vehicles in the game, but with the poorest handling of all vehicles.

This sports car can kill up to 250 zombies before exploding, unless the player crashes, in which case the possible kill count is lowered. It can be driven into the Slot Ranch Casino, and, if the blue hallway maintenance doors are open, all the way to the vent that leads to the Safe House.
