A race car was an automobile designed for use in competitions, known as races, against other similar vehicles. The fastest one of the competitors would be declared the winner. According to B'Elanna Torres, Tom Paris wasn't interested in any holoprogram that didn't involve a race car, a shuttle, or some other vehicle he could drive. (VOY: "Nightingale")

Hot rod was a colloquial term for an automobile that was specially modified to maximize its power and racing potential. While designing the Delta Flyer shuttlecraft, Paris believed that it should be similar to a hot rod, although Tuvok disagreed. (VOY: "Extreme Risk")

Paris had a holoprogram of a race car competition. In 2377, he challenged Icheb to race against him in an "old Earth ground vehicle". (VOY: "Nightingale")
