Monarch Vestige-R

Monarch Vestige-R (stock)


The Monarch Vestige-R is a SuperMini available in MotorStorm: Apocalypse through the purchase of the Outlaw Vehicle Pack. It is the second SuperMini produced by Monarch, and is far more modern than the Tike. It is a fully race-prepped track car, having only one seat and a rollcage.


The Vestige-R bears a strong resemblance to the Pontiac Solstice SD-290 Race Concept.


  • This is essentially the third open-top street car of any type in MotorStorm: Apocalypse, joining the Wasabi Kimachi and the Italia Torquemada.
  • The Vestige-R's third Rollcage option gives it a cloth top roof that vaguely resembles the default roof of the Wasabi Kimachi and gives it a profile that distantly resembles that of the real-life Honda S2000.
  • The Vestige-R is arguably the largest of the SuperMinis in terms of length and width. Its height (including rollcage) is however closer to that of the others in it's class.
  • This is the only vehicle in the Outlaw Vehicle Pack that is actually a new design.
  • Upon very close inspection (within Photo Mode), two very distinct features can be found on the Vestige-R. Its dashboard features a digital RPM/speed tachometer, something that would be assumingly featured in Supercars but is also shared with Mirage vehicles the 101 and the 401. Also, the space that would usually hold the passenger seat is instead closed off with a customizable panel and occupied by nitrous tanks. This would make the Vestige-R the first vehicle in MotorStorm: Apocalypse to clearly feature nitrous tanks as part of the original vehicle, and not just as a customization option.
  • The Vestige-R is also available to download for MotorStorm RC, for the price of £0.40/€0.49/$0.49. It is marketed as "Veteran SuperMini". This appearance makes the Vestige-R one of a few vehicles that do not appear in any standard game, only as a DLC, another being the Mirage 401.
  • The Vestige-R appears as a purchaseable PlayStation Network premium avatar.
