Between [[Grand Theft Auto III]] and [[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories]], the Infernus has appeared in three different forms, each illustrating the car as a sleek, low-profile sports car comparable to the [[Cheetah]].

In [[Grand Theft Auto III]] and [[Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories]], it is a cross resemblance between a [[wp:Jaguar XJR-15|Jaguar XJR-15]] and a [[wp:Jaguar XJ220|Jaguar XJ220]]. In [[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City]] and [[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories]], it closely resembles a [[wp:Lamborghini Countach|Lamborghini Countach]], but lacks the characteristic scissor doors, and features bulged headlights and rounded taillights. In [[Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas]], the Infernus strikingly resembles the [[wp:Honda NSX|first generation Honda NSX]] and [[wp:Cizeta-Moroder V16T|Cizeta-Moroder V16T]], which is the original design of the [[wp:Lamborghini Diablo|Lamborghini Diablo]] prototype before it was changed by Chrysler.

Although the Infernus' design suggests an RMR layout in GTA III and GTA Liberty City Stories, it's engine is visible under the front hood, possibly due to limitations of the game engine. The GTA Vice City and GTA Vice City Stories renditions reposition the engine to the back, as the front compartment is revealed to be the trunk. The GTA Vice City Infernus, however, still emits smoke from the front when damaged. The GTA San Andreas Infernus stays in a front mounted engine, all wheel drive layout.

The [[Grand Theft Auto IV]] rendition, manufactured by [[Pegassi]], is largely based on the [[wp:Lamborghini Murciélago|first generation Lamborghini Murciélago]] combined with the side-panelling of a [[wp:Lamborghini Diablo|Lamborghini Diablo]] (most notably the side windows) and the rear fascia and venting off an early model [[wp:Pagani Zonda|Pagani Zonda]], making the Infernus one of the only "exotic" cars in GTA IV. The car features an RMR configuration, allowing a favorable structural advantage over front-engine vehicles in aggressive driving conditions. The Infernus may spawn with a rear spoiler as an extra. Also, the Infernus is capable of supporting a second body color for a stripe over the side skirts, though it is not utilized on any standard car. The Infernus in GTA IV is also the only car in the entire series to feature [[wp:scissor doors|scissor doors]] (likely to pay homage to Lamborghini). This design trait allows the Infernus' doors to be self-closing, relying on gravity to fall shut from its opened position. Also featured are small, racing-style wing mirrors. The interior is fully finished in black leather and sports the same Lamborghini-style sport seats as the [[Comet]]. Sections of the dash and transmission tunnel are finished with carbon fiber accents.

Also, the Infernus is capable of supporting a second body color for a stripe over the side skirts, though it is not utilized on any standard car. The Infernus in GTA IV is also the first car in the series to feature butterfly doors (similar to Lamborghinis), a trait it shares with the [[Zentorno]] from GTA V.

The Infernus in [[Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars]] is only available without a spoiler, and features conventional doors. In addition, players who pre-ordered GTA Chinatown Wars from Amazon are able to purchase a bulletproof Infernus at the [[Auto Merchant]] early in the game.

The Infernus returns in [[Grand Theft Auto V]] and appears to be unchanged from [[Grand Theft Auto IV]] except for the rim design. The rims on the Infernus match the rims used on the Lamborghini Reventón, a limited production car based on the Murciélago. Unlike the GTA IV version, the Infernus can be modified with some parts such as the rear wing and exhausts.

The Infernus' handling remains similar between [[GTA III]] and [[GTA Vice City]], but in [[San Andreas]], even though it is powered by a V6, it is the fastest car in the game with a top speed close to 156&nbsp;mph (250&nbsp;km/h), and its all wheel drive system means the car has good front grip. However, the car suffers from understeer due to its small wheels and wheel wells. Caution must be ensured when braking as the wheels usually lock up during high speed braking. Power distribution is considered smooth, but due to its high power output, moderation must be used when taking turns, otherwise fishtailing may ensue. Its suspension in GTA III and GTA Vice City, however, is softer, allowing it to drive over curbs without jolting the car substantially or bottoming out. Additionally, the drag multiplier is only 1, which means it is the most aerodynamic sports car in the game. This probably answers why it is often a bit difficult to handle.

In GTA Vice City, [[Lance Vance]] is depicted to be driving a uniquely white Infernus, which can be seen and driven during [[Back Alley Brawl]] and [[Guardian Angels]]. After obtaining [[Vercetti Estate|Diaz's mansion]] in [[Rub Out]], the regular Infernus parked next to the garage will permanently appear white, implying the car belongs to Lance. Given its permanence, the car is easily and always obtainable from this point on.

in San Andreas, [[B Dup]] has a '''full immune''' Infernus. To get it, start the mission [[Beat Down on B Dup]], bring a [[tractor]] or [[Monster Truck]] (Monster Truck recommended) park it somewhere safe, take over [[Glen Park]] like normal, then park the monster or tractor on the road next to the two sidewalk grooves outside [[B Dup's Apartment]]. It should flip the Infernus during the final cutscene. After that, push it to a garage.

*The Transfender in [[Las Venturas (3D Universe)|Las Venturas]] charges 20% more for every modification except colors.
 
==Trivia==
 
* During [[Beta Releases#Grand Theft Auto III|development of GTA III]], one of the earliest known names given to the car is the "'''Dyablo'''", a nod to both the Lamborghini Diablo, the real-life car it is based on, and the [[Diablos]] gang. The Diablos' gang vehicle was to be the Infernus, but was changed for being too flashy.
 
* The beta version of the Infernus shares an uncanny resemblance to the Lamborghini Diablo and is illustrated without a rear spoiler. It is depicted on the [[Capital Autos]] website.
 
* The radio of the Infernus set those default stations in the following games:
 
**'''''GTA San Andreas''''': [[Radio Los Santos]].
 
**'''''GTA IV''''': [[The Vibe 98.8]].
 
* In GTA IV, after collecting all thirty cars for Stevie, he agrees to purchase cars from Niko Bellic, with the Infernus fetching [[Money|$]]10,000.
 
* <span style="border-style: initial; border-color: initial; font-style: normal; "><span style="font-style: normal; ">I</span>n GTA VC, the Infernus has the same engine sound of a </span>[[Banshee]]<span style="border-style: initial; border-color: initial; font-style: normal; ">; in GTA VCS, the Infernus has the same engine sound of a </span>[[Stinger]].
 
* If the player takes an Infernus to a [[Pay 'n' Spray]] too many times it will turn a unique, dark green color. This color will then be permanent, and no amount of subsequent resprays will change it. This is most likely a glitch, as almost every other car in the game will continually cycle through its available colors each time you visit a Pay N' Spray. The exceptions are the [[Buffalo]] and [[Stretch E]] from [[The Ballad of Gay Tony]], the [[Dukes (car)|Dukes]], the [[Banshee]] and the [[PMP 600]], which all suffer from similar glitches.
 
* The Infernus in GTA IV has no front turning indicators nor a trunk. The absence of a trunk is seen after some frontal crashes, and Infernuses with front indicators can be seen on the TV commercial of "I'm Rich".
 
[[Image:Infernus-GTACW-papercraft.jpg|255px|thumb|right|A rendering of the papercraft Infernus from the GTA Chinatown Wars section of the [[Rockstar Games Social Club]].]]
 
* Under the "[[Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars|Chinatown Wars]]" section of the [[Rockstar Games Social Club]] website, members may download a printable papercraft model of an Infernus. The vehicle's design is more rooted to the GTA IV rendition, and is obviously more detailed than the GTA Chinatown Wars rendition.
 
* The Infernus is the most expensive car in the GTA IV era with a price tag of $150,000, followed by the [[Turismo]] with a price tag of $130,000 and the [[Super GT]] with a price tag of $110,000.
 
* The Latin word ''Infernus'' means "being underneath" and is often translated as "Hell". The name may also refer to how the engine of the Infernus is located in the middle of the car or "being underneath" the driver.
 
* In GTA IV, the Infernus does not have its own door opening/closing animation for its scissor doors, the animation for it is the same as every other car. 
 
* In [[GTA Vice City]], when you damage the Infernus too much, and at the same time break the trunk out, you will see that the smoke is coming from the trunk.
 
* In GTA Vice City Stories, the Infernus is equipped with an AWD drivetrain (20% front/ 80% rear torque distribution). With such speed and power it is great for cruising along the beach, although it's turning radius will suffer. The AWD drivetrain can be easily seen by flipping the car over; switching between the hand-brake and regular brakes, while applying gas.
 
* The back of the Infernus has 5 exhaust pipes, similar to the 4 exhaust pipes at the back of a Pagani Zonda.
 
* The beta version of GTA Vice City had an Infernus with rectangular lights, different wheels and a bigger spoiler.
 
* The Infernus and the Bullet are the only cars in GTA San Andreas to have working foglights.
 
* The Infernus's seen in the Vice City trailers have a different wheel design then the final car, using the same design as GTA III"s sports car wheel design. Whether this is a beta or not is unknown, but the design was cut.
 
* The Infernus is the fastest car in GTA San Andreas followed by [[Turismo]] and [[Bullet]].
 
* In GTA IV, a bug is present in the Infernus and this same bug is also present in the [[Landstalker]]. When reversing, there is a faint white reverse light on the front badge.
 
*In GTA IV, being a sports car, when the Infernus shifts gears, it backfires, burning out the unburned fuel that accumulates in the exhaust, shifting backfires are also present with the [[beater]] versions of some cars and to the [[Banshee]], [[F620]], [[Bullet GT]], [[Sultan RS]], [[Buffalo]] (rarely), and [[Coquette]] (sometimes).
 
*In GTA IV the Infernus resembles a Lamborghini Murciélago with a Pagani Zonda rear. This is likely a reference to the Lamborghini Murciélago and Pagani Zonda rivalry in the 2000s, as it was featured at the same time in Top Gear series 1 episode 1.
 
*Despite its high value and appointments, Niko's girlfriends in GTA IV are generally unimpressed with the car, with some noting that it doesn't suit Niko's style (even though they tend to approve of the similar [[Turismo]]).
 
*If stolen and not bought online, it counts as 'too hot' when taken to [[Los Santos Customs|LS Customs]] so it cannot be modified or sold, or stored in a garage.

"The Italians are unrivalled in flamboyance, sex scandals and financial improprieties. Now you can be too!"
Legendarymotorsport.net description.

The Pegassi Infernus is a luxury sports car that was first introduced in Grand Theft Auto III and has appeared in every GTA title (except Grand Theft Auto Advance) since and has gained a reputation for being one of the oldest sports cars to still be in a vast number of GTA titles.

DesignEdit

3D UniverseEdit

"Extremely expensive. How can we expense one of these? Only those idiots in undercover get to drive these."
―GTA Vice City Website.

Between Grand Theft Auto III and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, the Infernus has appeared in three different forms, each illustrating the car as a sleek, low-profile sports car comparable to the Cheetah.

In Grand Theft Auto III and Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories, it is a cross resemblance between a Jaguar XJR-15 and a XJ220. In Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, it closely resembles a Lamborghini Countach, but lacks the characteristic scissor doors, and features bulged headlights and rounded taillights. In Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, the Infernus strikingly resembles the first generation Honda NSX and Cizeta-Moroder V16T, which is the original design of the Lamborghini Diablo prototype before it was changed by Chrysler.

Although the Infernus' design suggests an RMR layout in GTA III and GTA Liberty City Stories, it's engine is visible under the front hood, possibly due to limitations of the game engine. The GTA Vice City and GTA Vice City Stories renditions reposition the engine to the back, as the front compartment is revealed to be the trunk. The GTA Vice City Infernus, however, still emits smoke from the front when damaged. The GTA San Andreas Infernus stays in a front mounted engine, all wheel drive layout.

In GTA San Andreas, the Infernus can be modded at any TransFender modification garage.

HD UniverseEdit

Infernus badges

Badging on the Infernus.

The Grand Theft Auto IV rendition, manufactured by Pegassi, is largely based on the first generation Lamborghini Murciélago combined with the side-panelling of a Lamborghini Diablo (most notably the side windows) and the rear fascia and venting off an early model Pagani Zonda and Spyker C8, making the Infernus one of the only "exotic" cars in GTA IV.  The car features an RMR configuration, allowing a favorable structural advantage over front-engine vehicles in aggressive driving conditions. The Infernus may spawn with a rear spoiler as an extra. Also, the Infernus is capable of supporting a second body color for a stripe over the side skirts, though it is not utilized on any standard car. The Infernus in GTA IV is also the first car in the series to feature butterfly doors (similar to Lamborghinis), a trait it shares with the Zentorno from GTA V. This design trait allows the Infernus' doors to be self-closing, relying on gravity to fall shut from its opened position. Also featured are small, racing-style wing mirrors. The interior is fully finished in black leather and sports the same Lamborghini-style sport seats as the Comet. Sections of the dash and transmission tunnel are finished with carbon fiber accents.

The Infernus in Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars is only available without a spoiler, and features conventional doors. In addition, players who pre-ordered GTA Chinatown Wars from Amazon are able to purchase a bulletproof Infernus at the Auto Merchant early in the game.

The Infernus in Grand Theft Auto V appears to be unchanged from Grand Theft Auto IV except for the rim and interior design. The rims on the Infernus match the rims used on the Lamborghini Reventón, a limited production car based on the Murciélago. It also has a new, red interior. Unlike the GTA IV version, the Infernus can be modified with some parts such as the rear wing and exhausts.

PerformanceEdit

3D UniverseEdit

The Infernus' handling remains similar between GTA III and GTA Vice City, but in San Andreas, even though it is powered by a V6, it is the fastest car in the game with a top speed close to 156 mph (250 kph), and its all wheel drive system means the car has good front grip. However, the car suffers from understeer due to its small wheels and wheel wells. Caution must be ensured when braking as the wheels usually lock up during high speed braking. Power distribution is considered smooth, but due to its high power output, moderation must be used when taking turns, otherwise fishtailing may ensue. Its suspension in GTA III and GTA Vice City, however, is softer, allowing it to drive over curbs without jolting the car substantially or bottoming out. Additionally, the drag multiplier is only 1, which means it is the most aerodynamic sports car in the game. This probably answers why it is often a bit difficult to handle.

HD UniverseEdit

The Infernus is considered to be the fourth fastest car in GTA IV (first without its DLC installed) with a top speed of 215 mph (347 km/h). It is highly susceptible to deformation from high-speed impacts, due to its light body construction and rear mounted engine. Windshield Ejection is also common due to the lack of substance in the front of the car. The Infernus is one of the best racing cars, but does suffer from understeer during high speed turns. It is laid out in a mid-engined all-wheel drive layout, like most Lamborghinis. The mid-engine configuration makes it unlikely to break down or be set aflame from front-end collisions. While reversing, the Infernus can be easily turned 180 degrees with a mere nudge of the steering wheel, which can be useful after losing control of the vehicle. The Infernus has the same engine sound as the Comet and the SuperGT. And, like the Banshee, Buffalo, F620, Sultan RS, and Bullet GT, the Infernus burns excess fuel from its exhaust when shifting gears. The Infernus has an ABS feature just like the real life Lamborghini Murciélago.

Unique VariantsEdit

GTA IIIEdit

In GTA 3, D-Ice is known to own a unique pear-red or metallic blue Infernus. In the mission where you have to drive it to a garage to defuse a bomb in it, you can save it in a garage, but only when failing the mission. This car is also seen in the mission Grand Theft Auto.

Vice City and Vice City StoriesEdit

In GTA Vice City, Lance Vance is depicted to be driving a uniquely white Infernus, which can be seen and driven during Back Alley Brawl and Guardian Angels. After obtaining Diaz's mansion in Rub Out, the regular Infernus parked next to the garage will permanently appear white, implying the car belongs to Lance. Given its permanence, the car is easily and always obtainable from this point on.

The White Infernus reappears in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories at Lance Vance's Apartment in Ocean Beach after the mission From Zero To Hero but is not unique because there are Infernuses with the same color driving around the city. It was later destroyed by members of the Mendez Cartel using a rocket launcher during the mission Light My Pyre.

GTA San AndreasEdit

in San Andreas, B Dup has a full immune Infernus. To get it, start the mission Beat Down on B Dup, bring a tractor or Monster Truck (Monster Truck recommended) park it somewhere safe, take over Glen Park like normal, then park the monster or tractor on the road next to the two sidewalk grooves outside B Dup's Apartment. It should flip the Infernus during the final cutscene. After that, push it to a garage. 

GTA IVEdit

In GTA IV, an Infernus previously owned by Bryce Dawkins is given to the player by Bernie Crane after completion of his mission Buoys Ahoy. The car sports unique black stripes on the side skirts and one of two unique bright orange colors.

The same orange Infernus is also featured in The Lost and Damned during Knowing Me, Knowing You, and can be obtained by parking it at a safehouse, and waiting for the time limit to run out. Johnny will get out, and the car will be locked. Get into another vehicle and drive around the block. When you come back, the Infernus will still be there, unlocked and ready for driving.

During Stevie's Car Thefts, Stevie will require a unique golden Infernus parked near the Soldiers Memorial in Downtown Broker, and can be found parked next to the Pizza Salad Restaurant. Like all of Stevie's desired cars, it will respawn until it is delivered to his garage, allowing the player to keep one for themselves. The Infernus in this color may be a homage to the Lamborghini Diablo 6.0 VT Special Edition, which only 20 out of the 40 units manufactured were painted in a shade of gold almost identical to this.

LocationsEdit

GTA IIIEdit

GTA Vice CityEdit

  • Parked in front of the mansion owned by Ricardo Diaz, and later Tommy Vercetti. Prior to the mansion's change of hand, the Infernus is randomly colored and thereafter, the car appears with a unique white body color.
  • Parked inside North Point Mall, at the north side. However, you cannot drive it out.
  • Will spawn in the car park next to the North Point Mall.

GTA San AndreasEdit

GTA Liberty City StoriesEdit

GTA Vice City StoriesEdit

GTA IVEdit

  • An Infernus can be encountered relatively early on if one spawns as a competitor (or in traffic) during Brucie's street races. These can be stolen, although killing an opponent and stealing their car will forfeit the race, lowering Brucie's approval rating.
  • The player will get a special colored Infernus from Bernie Crane for all Niko's help.
  • In GTA IV Multiplayer it is quite common, and can be seen driving around the streets of Liberty City.
  • Riding an NRG 900 around, especially around Star Junction, may cause an Infernus to spawn eventually.
  • Can rarely be seen on Union Drive East near Middle Park East at night driving another supercar.
  • As with most cars, Infernuses will spawn more readily once the player is already driving one. Approaching the South Bohan safehouse from the southern bridge may be a good way to spawn parked Infernuses near a convenient storing place.
  • Driving a Ruiner will eventually spawn an Infernus in Bohan but it will take awhile for it to appear.
  • Driving a Turismo around Star Junction or southern Algonquin may eventually cause an Infernus to spawn (TBoGT only).
  • In The Lost and Damned, it is only seen in the mission "Knowing Me, Knowing You."
  • In The Ballad of Gay Tony, the Infernus was made more common and tends to spawn around Star Junction, Westminster and other central parts of Algonquin.
  • Also in The Ballad of Gay Tony, it is very common in other parts including The Meat Quarter, Lower Easton, Suffolk.
  • In GTA IV, one might spawns in Westdyke on the mission Pegorino's Pride, you can take it with the risk failing the mission.
  • After delivering the gold Infernus to Stevie, the car will spawn around, as happens with any other vehicle requested after delivered to the garage.

PLEASE NOTE: Infernus won't appear around Liberty City until you complete this mission: Buoys Ahoy (for GTA IV).

GTA Chinatown WarsEdit

  • The car can be obtained from many locations, though seems to be popular in Algonquin.
  • Can be bought at the Auto Merchant for $1000.
  • Spawns in a driveway of a house in Beachgate, Broker.

GTA VEdit

GTA OnlineEdit

  • Can be bought for $440,000 from Legendarymotorsport.net.
  • It will rarely spawn if the player is driving in the same prestigious areas of Los Santos.

  • In GTA Vice City, when you damage the Infernus too much, and at the same time break the trunk out, you will see that the smoke is coming from the trunk.
  • In GTA Vice City Stories, the Infernus is equipped with an AWD drivetrain (20% front/ 80% rear torque distribution). With such speed and power it is great for cruising along the beach, although it's turning radius will suffer. The AWD drivetrain can be easily seen by flipping the car over; switching between the hand-brake and regular brakes, while applying gas.
  • The beta version of GTA Vice City had an Infernus with rectangular lights, different wheels and a bigger spoiler.
  • The Infernus and the Bullet are the only cars in GTA San Andreas to have working foglights.
  • The Infernus's seen in the Vice City trailers have a different wheel design then the final car, using the same design as GTA III"s sports car wheel design. Whether this is a beta or not is unknown, but the design was cut.
  • The Infernus is the fastest car in GTA San Andreas followed by the Turismo and Bullet.
  • It is one of few cars owned by a supporting character that are destroyed by gang members during a mission when it was destroyed by Mendez Cartel Members in the mission Light My Pyre, the other being Big Smoke's Black Perennial which was destroyed by Ballas Gang Members during the mission Sweet and Kendl.

HD UniverseEdit

  • The HD-era Infernus is the first car in the GTA series to feature butterfly doors, the second being the Zentorno.
  • In GTA V, there is a stripper with the same name as the car.
  • In GTA IV, after collecting all thirty cars for Stevie, he agrees to purchase cars from Niko Bellic, with the Infernus fetching $10,000.
  • In GTA IV, the beta Infernus had body colored headlights instead of the carbon fibre ones.
  • If the player takes an Infernus to a Pay 'n' Spray too many times it will turn a unique, dark green color. This color will then be permanent, and no amount of subsequent resprays will change it. This is most likely a glitch, as almost every other car in the game will continually cycle through its available colors each time you visit a Pay N' Spray. The exceptions are the Buffalo and Stretch E from The Ballad of Gay Tony, the Dukes, the Banshee and the PMP 600, which all suffer from similar glitches.
  • The Infernus in GTA IV has no front turning indicators nor a trunk. The absence of a trunk is seen after some frontal crashes, and Infernuses with front indicators can be seen on the TV commercial of "I'm Rich".
Infernus-GTACW-papercraft

A rendering of the papercraft Infernus from the GTA Chinatown Wars section of the Rockstar Games Social Club.

  • Under the "Chinatown Wars" section of the Rockstar Games Social Club website, members may download a printable papercraft model of an Infernus. The vehicle's design is more rooted to the GTA IV rendition, and is obviously more detailed than the GTA Chinatown Wars rendition.
  • The Infernus is the most expensive car in GTA IV with a price tag of $150,000, followed by the Turismo with a price tag of $130,000 and the Super GT with a price tag of $110,000.
  • Although the Infernus itself is the most expensive car in GTA IV, when you sold the car to Stevie, he will only pay $10,000, even though he will pay a Super GT or a Turismo for $11,000.
  • In GTA IV, the Infernus does not have its own door opening/closing animation for its scissor doors, the animation for it is the same as every other car. 
  • The back of the Infernus has 5 exhaust pipes, similar to the 4 exhaust pipes at the back of a Pagani Zonda.
  • In GTA IV, a bug is present in the Infernus and this same bug is also present in the Landstalker. When reversing, there is a faint white reverse light on the front badge.
  • In GTA IV, being a sports car, when the Infernus shifts gears, it backfires, burning out the unburned fuel that accumulates in the exhaust, shifting backfires are also present with the beater versions of some cars and to the Banshee, F620, Bullet GT, Sultan RS, Buffalo (rarely), and Coquette (sometimes).
  • In GTA IV and its episodes you can never leave the Infernus door opened as it will close itself due to gravity. However they will stay up in GTA V. This also happens with the Zentorno.
  • In GTA IV the Infernus resembles a Lamborghini Murciélago with a Pagani Zonda rear. This is likely a reference to the Lamborghini Murciélago and Pagani Zonda rivalry in the 2000s, as it was featured at the same time in Top Gear series 1 episode 1.
  • Despite its high value and appointments, Niko's girlfriends in GTA IV are generally unimpressed with the car, with some noting that it doesn't suit Niko's style (even though they tend to approve of the similar Turismo).
