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 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 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, rain, or snow.

The Elegy RH8 is one of the best handling cars in GTA V, due to its great traction, even weight distribution, and all-wheel drive configuration, but its Achilles' heel is that it tends to stall briefly when attempting to make a 180 turn going in reverse.
  +
  +
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. However the car has weaker brakes than other cars in its class.

Elegy RH8 with twin turbo.

The Elegy RH8 features a 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 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, rain, or snow.

The Elegy RH8 is one of the best handling cars in GTA V, due to its great traction, even weight distribution, and all-wheel drive configuration, but its Achilles' heel is that it tends to stall briefly when attempting to make a 180 turn going in reverse.

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. However the car has weaker brakes than other cars in its class.
