"The BASS CRUISER was used as the escort car for a certain famous band. Not only does it look good, but this concept's performance and interior are fit for a king."
―Ridge Racer 6 description.
"Bass Cruiser (uncustomizable). A machine that has passed many military car endurance tests with ease, it even set a new time record in a driving test on rough terrain. Easily outclassing the average sports machine, this really is the ultimate SUV."
―Ridge Racer 7 description

The Bass Cruiser is an SUV made by Danver, featured as the manufacturer's Special Machine in both Ridge Racer 6 and 7. Its name comes from the fact that this car is fitted with a massive sound system, taking up both rear seats and the entire trunk.

Performance wise, the car's main advantage is the acceleration, as it can reach its top speed in a short time despite having a large size and only sports a 4-speed transmission.

While having very good acceleration, it is a very heavy vehicle and can be difficult to control. Its handling is somewhat similar to the Danver Hijack. It is very sluggish and tends to oversteer more than one would expect, although it has an excellent inertia drift ability. However, it tends to slide outwards in sharp corners very quickly.

It has incredible Ultimate Charge levels, at the cost of a very poor Standard Charge rate. Nitrous-wise, it is only rivaled by the Age Ultranova.


  • Bass Cruiser's description as an SUV that has military pedigree in Ridge Racer 7 is a possible nod to Hummer which is notorious for its use as a military vehicle. That being said, in Ridge Racer 6, it is implied to be popular with rock bands, which also alludes to Hummers being popular with celebrities as well.
  • When the engine backfires, or if the player uses single or double nitrous, flames burst only from rear exhaust pipes. The side exhaust pipes somehow become operational only when triple nitrous is used.
  • Bass Cruiser has most likely the most detailed interior of all cars in the series, due to having glass rooftop showcasing one-of-a-kind sound system it is named after fully modeled.
  • Like several other Special Machines in the Ridge Racer 7, Bass Cruiser has unique driver model: a bold black man, sporting gold chain, wristwatch and sunglasses.
  • The fact that the Bass Cruiser has a relatively low redline at 4000rpm (with maximum RPM at 6000) may suggest that it could have a diesel engine.
