A stock Bonecracker at the junkyard in FlatOut

The Bonecracker is a Gold Class vehicle available in FlatOut. Weighing in at almost 3,700 pounds, (1678 kilograms), it is the heaviest vehicle available in the game.


Powered by a 7.0 liter V8, the Bonecracker makes an excellent 295 horsepower in stock form. That being said, it's power-to-weight ratio is one of the lowest in its class (it is only second worst, with the worst being the Ranker 1). However, the car appears to have a very high torque rating, as it accelerates quite vigorously, despite its bulk. In races, the car's performance is admirable, but unbalanced. It's tall, soft suspension tends to bounce quite a bit over the smallest of objects, and its long wheelbase does not permit very rapid cornering. Despite these shortcomings, an experienced driver will find that the sheer acceleration of the vehicle to be its greatest strength, giving it a fair shot at recovery if it falls behind in competition.

In demolition derbies, the Bonecracker is arguably one of the best cars to choose, as its high weight and extreme acceleration turn it into a sort of long-nosed battering ram. Lighter vehicles are easily tossed away if struck, and the car's high torque rating allows it to literally push opponents around the ring, even if they are pushing back at full acceleration. The car's structural integrity is excellent, though its exhaust pipes tend to fall off rather easily.


  • The car's large appearance and high weight seem to indicate that it is based off of early-1970's style coupes, most notably the Chevrolet Monte Carlo and Ford Thunderbird.
  • It is best not to try long jumps with the Bonecracker, as its high weight and low suspension cause it to bottom out with relative ease.
  • When fully upgraded, the car makes 442 horsepower. While this is rather high, the car's weight tends to hold it back.
  • The name of the car was reused for other vehicles in later FlatOut games. For information on these cars, see Bonecracker.
