The Dinka Blista Kanjo is a sports coupe manufactured by Dinka, a fictional Japanese car company within GTA V. The Blista Kanjo is characterized by its sleek and compact design, powered by a front-wheel drive system which gives it agile and responsive handling on the road. The best part about the Dinka Blista Kanjo is the plethora of modifications it has in store, allowing players to tailor it to match their aesthetic preferences.
Released as part of the Diamond Casino Heists, the Dinka Blista Kanjo is one of my favorites, and this Dinka Blista Kanjo guide will dive deeper into the Dinka Blista Kanjo, its customization, and its performance. Let’s go!
Dinka Blista Kanjo Overview
The Dinka Blista Kanjo is a compact coupe that boasts impressive top speeds, acceleration, and overall responsive performance on the road. With a variety of different parts attached to the car, it is also possibly one of the most customizable cars in the game.
With that said, its only shortcoming is that it is not the best option when making sharp turns, as it has low traction and braking. Since the car suffers from understeering when making sharp turns, it performs better when gunning it down straight roads.
If you enjoy customizing your car and want multiple options available, the Dinka Blista Kanjo is the one for you. To get a hold of this car, open up your phone, head into “Southern San Andreas SuperAutos,” and navigate your way to the Dinka Blista Kanjo from all the available cars.
Once you click on the Dinka Blista Kanjo, you will be able to select the color you would like the car in. Once you have picked your favorite color, you will need to pay a total of $580,000 without Trade Price to get the Dinka Blista Kanjo or $435,000 Trade Price.
The Dinka Blista Kanjo is inspired by the FK9 Honda Civic Type R, so any Honda Civic fans are going to absolutely love this vintage design. While there are few traces of other car designs here and there, it is mostly developed based on the FK9 Honda Civic Type R, which was released in the late 1990s.
According to the game files, the Dinka Blista Kanjo has a top speed of just 86.99 mph, which is somewhat okay for a compact car but underwhelming in comparison to other, much faster cars. After fully upgrading the car, the Dinka Blista Kanjo will max out at around 109 mph, which is much better than its initial speed but still not the fastest among compact cars.
Although its base acceleration is not the best, sitting at around 7 mph/s, you can bump it up significantly with the proper upgrades – I’ll be discussing those later. Regardless, it is safe to say that, with these modifications, the Dinka Blista Kanjo becomes one of the best cars in GTA V among compact cars in terms of acceleration. However, it’s important to note that the car’s front-wheel drive doesn’t fully utilize this boost as the wheel begins to spin out of control at higher velocities.
As mentioned before, the Dinka Blista Kanjo supports a front-wheel drive, making it much more prone to understeering when cutting around sharp corners. Additionally, the Dinka Blista Kanjo has sub-par brakes that make driving extremely difficult, even on open roads where a car might be coming from the side. With that said, it pales in comparison to other compact cars when it comes to handling.
As mentioned before, the Dinka Blista Kanjo is one of the game’s most customizable cars, with many options for every part of the car. If you are looking to have a car that you can change the look of every now and then to keep things fresh, the Dinka Blista Kanjo is the one.
Although, keep in mind that the prices for these modifications will double in GTA Online, so keep some extra cash with you in GTA Online if you intend to do any modifications.
The Dinka Blista Kanjo can definitely take a beating before completely breaking down. Even the default car has good armoring that does not succumb to damage. However, it is always better to reinforce your car with some armor to ensure it withstands as much damage as possible. Here are the prices for the Dinka Blista Kanjo armor in GTA V:
|Armor||GTA V||GTA Online|
|Armor Upgrade 20%||7,500 Dollars||15,000 Dollars|
|Armor Upgrade 40%||12,000 Dollars||24,000 Dollars|
|Armor Upgrade 60%||20,000 Dollars||40,000 Dollars|
|Armor Upgrade 80%||35,000 Dollars||70,000 Dollars|
|Armor Upgrade 100%||50,000 Dollars||100,000 Dollars|
Although the Dinka Blista Kanjo does not have the best brakes in the compact cars category, they can be significantly improved by performing some modifications on the car.
They are essential to make the car a better option when going through tight spaces requiring you to nail those sharp turns.
|Street Brakes||20,000 Dollars|
|Sports Brakes||27,000 Dollars|
|Race Brakes||35,000 Dollars|
While the Dinka Blista Kanjo already has some really good acceleration, installing a more powerful engine substantially increases the acceleration of the car. This is a must-have if you intend to participate in any races with the Dinka Blista Kanjo.
|EMS Upgrade, Level 1||9,000 Dollars|
|EMS Upgrade, Level 2||12,500 Dollars|
|EMS Upgrade, Level 3||18,000 Dollars|
|EMS Upgrade, Level 4||33,500 Dollars|
Modifying your Front bumper will not yield any increase in performance, but if you want to customize your car’s look, this is definitely something you should look into.
It’s safe to say that the variety of bumpers available ensures that you are able to find one that is perfect for your taste. I personally like to rock the Street Bumper since it adds a lot to the sporty and aggressive look I usually like to go for.
|Half Primary Splitter||4,600 Dollars|
|Full Primary Splitter||7,400 Dollars|
|Stickerbomb Bumper||11,700 Dollars|
|Street Bumper||14,500 Dollars|

Just like the front bumper, the options available for the rear bumper of the Dinka Blista Kanjo are absolutely insane. With so many options, you can change the look of your car in any way you choose.
Here, I would go with the Primary Trim & Subway Ring just cause it reminds me of a similar car we used to have.
|Stock Rear Bumper||2,200 Dollars|
|Primary Trim Bumper||4,600 Dollars|
|Subway Ring||7,400 Dollars|
|Primary Trim & Subway Ring||11,700 Dollars|

|Stripped & Small Diffuser||15,900 Dollars|
|Stripped & Medium Diffuser||16,100 Dollars|
|Stripped & Large Diffuser||16,300 Dollars|
The Dinka Blista Kanjo has limited door upgrades available. Since they only add aesthetic appeal to the car, you should only be considering door upgrades once you’ve gone over every other upgrade on this list.
|Wind Deflectors||11,520 Dollars|
|Carbon Wind Deflectors||12,240 Dollars|
|Window Nets||12,960 Dollars|
The Dinka Blista Kanjo comes with a plethora of options for you to choose from when it comes to the exhaust you can install in the car.
While I personally prefer a smaller exhaust due to my inclination towards a more discrete look, the Kanjo offers options for people wanting a more extravagant look.
|Stock Exhaust||260 Dollars|
|Dual Exit Exhausts||750 Dollars|
|Tuner Exhaust||1,800 Dollars|
|Chrome Tuner Exhaust||3,000 Dollars|

|Chrome Big Bore Exhaust||14,625 Dollars|
|Blast Pipes||15,500 Dollars|
|Shakotan Exhaust||16,475 Dollars|
While this is something that I have not changed on my Dinka Blista Kanjo, some people want to have some options open when it comes to fenders.
There are some crazy options available such as the race fenders that make your car look like it is about to take to the sky. I just stuck with the stock fenders on my car because I feel that fenders buff up the car’s sides without any reason.
|Stock Fender||300 Dollars|
|Stickerbomb Front Fenders||900 Dollars|
|Stickerbomb Front & Rear||1,500 Dollars|
|Vented Front Fenders||1,700 Dollars|
|Street Fenders||2,000 Dollars|

|Track Fenders||3,300 Dollars|
|Carbon Track Fenders||3,900 Dollars|
|Race Fenders||4,350 Dollars|
|Carbon Race Fenders||5,000 Dollars|
The grilles option does not affect your car’s performance in the slightest, so this is definitely something that you should think about buying once your car is already at the best performance it can possibly reach.
|Stock Grille||200 Dollars|
|Primary Grille Surround||750 Dollars|
|Debadged Grille||1,340 Dollars|
|Exposed Intercooler||1,650 Dollars|
|Black Dinka Intercooler||3,000 Dollars|
|White Dinka Intercooler||3,200 Dollars|
|Intercooler With Water Sprayer||3,650 Dollars|
|Intercooler With Twin Fans||4,100 Dollars|
While there are some options with headlights that allow you to have an air intake for the engine from the headlights, this does not affect the performance of the car.
On the other hand, if you are someone who likes to have their car in the best condition when going for a car meetup or want to show off your car, having good headlights should be at the top of your list.
|Stock Headlights||5,400 Dollars|
|Yellow Headlight Glass||8,640 Dollars|
|Primary Headlight Covers||9,180 Dollars|
|Secondary Headlight Covers||9,720 Dollars|
|Primary Headlight Intake||10,260 Dollars|
|Secondary Headlight Intake||10,800 Dollars|
|Carbon Headlight Intake||11,070 Dollars|
The Dinka Blista Kanjo offers a stunning collection of hood modifications. One could even say that there is a hood for every occasion, varying from carbon hoods to sticker hoods that make your car visible from a mile away.
While they do not have a role to play in the car’s performance, hoods, being a dominant part of your car’s appearance, are a must-have if you want to give your car a personal touch. My personal recommendation will be the race hood if you are going for a bit of a classy look.
|Stock Hood||1,600 Dollars|
|Hood Bra||3,000 Dollars|
|Secondary Color Hood||5,000 Dollars|
|Stickerbomb Hood||8,000 Dollars|
|Rusty Hood||9,600 Dollars|

|Carbon Performance Hood||13,250 Dollars|
|Race Hood||13,600 Dollars|
|Carbon Race Hood||13,900 Dollars|
|Big Turbo Hood||14,150 Dollars|
If you want to improve the visibility at night time for yourself, you can opt to get better headlights for the car that will make the road much clearer.
|Stock Lights||600 Dollars|
|Xenon Lights||7,500 Dollars|
The livery changes the entire look of the Dinka Blista Kanjo. Again, the livery of your car will have no effect on the car’s performance whatsoever, but if you are looking to create a car that you can take to car shows, the livery is definitely something that you will need to dive into.
With the livery, I personally feel like the Outlaw racer is a good pick, especially for people who like driving at night, as it goes really well with dark base colors.
|Street Decals||18,240 Dollars|
|Shopping List||19,380 Dollars|
|Clubman Racer||20,520 Dollars|
|Total Bucket||21,660 Dollars|
|Outlaw Racer||22,800 Dollars|
|Highway Hunter||23,370 Dollars|
|Midnight Champion||23,939 Dollars|
|Atomic Motorsport||24,510 Dollars|
|Globe Oil Racing||25,080 Dollars|
|Dinka Race Team||25,650 Dollars|
|Retro Fukaru||26,220 Dollars|
|Shiny Wasabi Kitty||26,789 Dollars|
The plate on the back of the car is something that is going to be visible to you throughout your drive of the car. That is why getting one you like is recommended if you plan to use the car for extended periods.
This is where people fond of the Civic Type R can customize the number plate and have something like ‘VTEC’ written on the back of the car.
|Blue on White 1||200 Dollars|
|Blue on White 2||200 Dollars|
|Blue on White 3||200 Dollars|
|Yellow on Blue||300 Dollars|
|Yellow on Black||600 Dollars|
The roll cage is something that will give your car a very sturdy look to show that it will not crumble no matter what. This is especially true for cages such as the Padded Full Role Cage, which completely encompasses the car from the inside and including the back.
|No Roll Cage||700 Dollars|
|Street Half Cage||1,100 Dollars|
|Track Half Cage||1,350 Dollars|
|Dash Dodger Cage||1,500 Dollars|
|Padded Dash Dodger Cage||2,750 Dollars|
|Full Roll Cage||3,600 Dollars|
|Padded Full Roll Cage||4,900 Dollars|
While there are options of having a Roof Box or Roof Rack on top of your car, I personally find that matching the roof of your car with the color you set for the hood gives it a really nice look. However, if you are looking to go for something with a bit more contrast, there are plenty of options available for you to choose from.
|Stock Roof||200 Dollars|
|Secondary Roof||700 Dollars|
|Stickerbomb Roof||1,150 Dollars|
|Carbon Roof||1,600 Dollars|
|Roof Box||1,950 Dollars|
|Roof Rack||2,400 Dollars|
|Off to the Track||2,500 Dollars|
Again, this is something that I would definitely want to match with the rest of my car, especially if I have something like Sticker Bomb for the rest of the car. On the other hand, if you are going for a look you have in mind, there are plenty of options to choose from.
|Stock Skirts||2,500 Dollars|
|Primary Skirts||5,500 Dollars|
|Secondary Skirts||8,000 Dollars|
|Stickerbomb Skirts||10,500 Dollars|
|Street Skirts||14,000 Dollars|
|Carbon Street Skirts||14,500 Dollars|
|Race Skirts||15,000 Dollars|
|Carbon Race Skirts||15,500 Dollars|
Every single person who is even the least bit interested in getting their car modified has, at some point, thought about getting spoilers for the car.
This is especially true if you’re into races or other high-speed events. However, one must not forget that they can also be a potential hazard as the added downward force may cause the car to become unstable and potentially crash.
Here, my personal favorite is the Primary OEM Wing, just because it has a discrete look and a special message for the cops trying to chase you.
|Primary OEM Wing||7,050 Dollars|
|Secondary OEM Wing||10,000 Dollars|
|Stickerbomb OEM Wing||13,000 Dollars|
|Carbon OEM Wing||14,000 Dollars|
|Primary Raised Wing||16,000 Dollars|
|Secondary Raised Wing||16,500 Dollars|
|Primary Flap Wing||17,000 Dollars|
|Secondary Flap Wing||17,500 Dollars|
|Street Wing||18,000 Dollars|
|Drift Wing||18,500 Dollars|
|GT Wing||19,000 Dollars|
|Track Wing||19,500 Dollars|
|Time Attack Wing||20,000 Dollars|
|Street SPL Wing||20,500 Dollars|
|Extreme Performance Wing||21,000 Dollars|
|Race Wing||21,500 Dollars|
|Loop Battle Wing||22,750 Dollars|
|Circuit Master Wing||24,000 Dollars|
Sunstrips will be at the front of your car, so unless you drive with the inner-view camera for the car, there is no reason for you to get something that you will most likely not even see once you have installed it. However, if you have some extra money and are done with the rest of the upgrades for the car, getting some sun strips can be a good option.
|Primary Sunstrip||38,880 Dollars|
|Secondary Sunstrip||41,310 Dollars|
The car’s suspension is extremely important if you intend to do racing in rocky areas, as this will have your car bouncing a lot more than it should. While I am not a fan of the Sport or Competition suspensions, I would definitely go for the Street suspension as it gives the car a more elegant look.
|Stock Suspension||200 Dollars|
|Lowered Suspension||1,000 Dollars|
|Street Suspension||2,000 Dollars|
|Sport Suspension||3,400 Dollars|
|Competition Suspension||4,400 Dollars|
The transmission of the Dinka Blista Kanjo is supposed to decrease the time the car takes between changing gears. This will increase the car’s overall acceleration, but as the car is already a front-wheel-drive car, this would make the tire spin a bit more prominent.
I recommend getting yourself some boost at the beginning of a race in order to keep your tires from spinning out of control. The lower you go on this list, the faster your car will become at shifting gears, and the greater your car’s acceleration will become.
|Stock Transmission||1,000 Dollars|
|Street Transmission||29,500 Dollars|
|Sports Transmission||32,500 Dollars|
|Race Transmission||40,000 Dollars|
Since the trunk constitutes much of the car’s rear end, an area that is most visible when driving in GTA, don’t forget to upgrade it. On that note, I recommend the carbon trunk if you’re going for a carbon aesthetic.
|Stock Trunk||300 Dollars|
|Primary Color Trunk||900 Dollars|
|Secondary Color Trunk||1,500 Dollars|
|Stickerbomb Trunk||1,700 Dollars|
|Carbon Trunk||2,000 Dollars|
The turbo is perhaps the only thing on this list that will, for a short period, increase the top speed of the Dinka Blista Kanjo.
While this can be extremely useful in races and competitive events, controlling the car when the turbo is turned on will make it extremely difficult. Any sharp turn or small bump can lead to your car completely spinning out of control.
|Turbo Tuning||50,000 Dollars|
Window modifications do not increase the car’s performance nor contribute too heavily to the car’s look. You should go for them once you have completely upgraded and modified your car according to your requirements.
|Light Smoke||1,500 Dollars|
|Dark Smoke||3,500 Dollars|
Alternative: Dewbauchee Exemplar
The Dewbauchee Exemplar is one of the best alternatives to turn to if you can’t afford the Dinka Blista Kanjo. It costs only $205,000 on Legendary Motorsports, which is very cheap for the kind of performance it has to offer.
Thanks to its V8 engine, it is capable of accelerating from a stationary position to 60 mph in just under 5 seconds, ultimately reaching its top speed of 182 mph.
Although its impressive handling and braking make it one of the best racing cars in the Coupe class, its only shortcoming is that its low ground clearance makes it prone to damage from rough terrain.
