  • Auger doesn't have any known changes from Twisted Metal III to Twisted Metal 4 besides its color.

Twisted Metal III

  • Auger is believed to have replaced Mr. Slam, as they are both construction vehicles.
  • Auger is the only TMIII original vehicle to reappear in a later game.

Twisted Metal 4

  • There could have been a possibility of the driver of Super Auger having an info screen, as Buster Cobb's TMIII info screen can be found in the game's files under the name "AUGER.TIM[0]."
