The Istante is a sports car made by Assoluto, available only in Rage Racer. It's first available as a Grade 4 car, powered by a 3.5 liter double overhead cam flat-12 engine, putting out 380 ps and enabling the car to reach a top speed of 296 km/h. An optional Grade 5 upgrade gives the car a new 4.2 liter engine, increasing the car's power and top speed to 450 ps and 310 km/h. Power is transmitted through a 6 speed gearbox.
- While Assoluto hails from Italy (in-universe), the car bears an obvious resemblance to Vector W2, an American car. Also, while the Istante is a manual-only car, its real-life iteration is an automatic-only car.
