The Elegy RH8 features a twin-turbo V6 engine. The car accelerates relatively well from a standstill and reaches a good top speed. The car appears to have good weight distribution and also has good balance when cornering, including high speed cornering. Cornering feels responsive most of the time, with good stability afforded to the driver, even at high speeds.

The Elegy RH8 features a 3.8L twin-turbo V6 engine. The car accelerates relatively well from a standstill and reaches a good top speed. It also has very little wheel spin, thanks to the all wheel drive system. The car has good weight distribution and also has good balance when cornering, including high speed cornering. Cornering feels responsive most of the time, with good stability afforded to the driver, even at high speeds, rain, or snow.

The Elegy RH8 is one of the best handling cars in [[GTA V]] (especially in the "Sports" class), due to its great traction, even weight distribution, and all-wheel drive configuration, but its Achilles heel is its braking, which even compared to some of the SUVs is very poor. However, due its exceptional handling, braking is not always needed when taking corners, although needing to come to a dead stop quickly may become problematic in this car.

  +
It will also stall if you attempt to make a sharp 180 using the handbrake at high speeds - that is, if you end up still going backwards after being turned around, if you continue to try and accelerate forwards, you will stall out for a split second.
  +
  +
Still, it is often considered by the GTA community to be able to compete in the Super class. Despite being a sports car, it can easily climb up mountains and be driven off-road thanks to its AWD layout.

"Born in the fires of Mt. Fuji and tested on some German toll road, you can finally legally own this legendary supercar without the fear of having your door kicked in by the FIB because they'd rather crush import cars than catch terrorists."
Legendarymotorsport.net description.

The Annis Elegy RH8 is a Japanese sports car in Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online.

DesignEdit

The car's greenhouse, front quarter, rear bumper area, natural rear wing and wheels are inspired by the Nissan GT-R (R35) SpecV. The front headlamps are reminiscent of the Infiniti G37 Coupes, which is also related to the Nissan Skyline/Nissan GT-R. The tailights resemble the tailights of the Toyota FT-86 Concept.

When taken to Los Santos Customs, the Elegy RH8 has an above average amount of customizable options, due to the fact that it is considered a tuning car.

GTAVEdit

The Elegy RH8 features a 3.8L twin-turbo V6 engine. The car accelerates relatively well from a standstill and reaches a good top speed. It also has very little wheel spin, thanks to the all wheel drive system. The car has good weight distribution and also has good balance when cornering, including high speed cornering. Cornering feels responsive most of the time, with good stability afforded to the driver, even at high speeds, rain, or snow.

The Elegy RH8 is one of the best handling cars in GTA V (especially in the "Sports" class), due to its great traction, even weight distribution, and all-wheel drive configuration, but its Achilles heel is its braking, which even compared to some of the SUVs is very poor. However, due its exceptional handling, braking is not always needed when taking corners, although needing to come to a dead stop quickly may become problematic in this car.

It will also stall if you attempt to make a sharp 180 using the handbrake at high speeds - that is, if you end up still going backwards after being turned around, if you continue to try and accelerate forwards, you will stall out for a split second.

Still, it is often considered by the GTA community to be able to compete in the Super class. Despite being a sports car, it can easily climb up mountains and be driven off-road thanks to its AWD layout.
