The Lizard Acceron, known as Lizard Instinct in the Japanese version of the game, is a Grade 2 vehicle in Rage Racer.


The Lizard Acceron takes cues from American muscle cars from the age of muscle cars (the 60's), such as the Pontiac Firebird Trans Am and Ford Mustang, with aerodynamics inspired from those used in both American stock car and Trans-Am racing. Curiously however, the Acceron has a black top in all of the car's specifications, suggesting that the car is a convertible, or it is equipped with a landau (a fake convertible roof). Curiously also for a car of this design, the car is equipped with a inline-4 SOHC engine (V6 in later classes), rather than a V8 engine usual for cars of this design.

The Acceron, like all other Lizard cars in Rage Racer, are designed for acceleration first and foremost, and came with drift tires by default.
