The Naughty Dog is a combat racing car featured in Jak X: Combat Racing. Named after the game's developer, Naughty Dog, Inc., this vehicle may be purchased from the secrets shop for 50,000 Precursor orbs after completing the game's adventure mode.
This vehicle was first featured in the opening sequence of the game, driven by a group of Mizo's thugs who were chasing Jak throughout Kras City. Notably exclusive to the cutscene, the vehicles were reskinned and had modified body parts, and did not possess any Naughty Dog insignia. In the game, the body parts cannot be modified by the player, though the paint job can be changed in exhibition mode only.
The Naughty Dog sports an unusual set of statistics, maxed out at 5 from the beginning, likely due to the vehicle's original usage in cutscenes.[a] Performance-wise it is fairly well-rounded, though the vehicle is very slow, making any other potential problems and factors (like rolling or spinning out of control, even while boosting and powersliding) a non-issue.
However, the turbo system and armor is rather sub-par, and coupled with the low quality engine makes this vehicle more of a novelty car than anything intended for serious use.
