"Remember Italy's glory days before feminism and the Euro ruined everything? When a suitcase full of Lire would buy you an espresso and a pack of cigarettes, if you were lucky? Produced by old-money Italians in the 1960s, driven by new-money guidos in the 2010s, the Monroe is a classic supercar that has been making douchebags look stylish for over 50 years."
Legendary Motorsport webpage.

The Pegassi Monroe is a rear mid-engine sports classic car featured in Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online.

Design

The overall design of the Monroe is heavily inspired by the Lamborghini Miura, bearing the distinctive aerodynamic shape and the chromed skirts. It also shares some elements from the Ford GT40 , notably when it comes to the headlights and the relatively wide shape. The tailights are derived from the 1969 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray.

Performance

The Monroe is one of the fastest classic cars in the game, with its top speed only being matched by the JB 700, achieving about 207 mph unlike the in-game legendarymotorsport.net site state. Acceleration was once best in class, now being bested by the Coquette Classic, reaching 60 mph in the 5 second range. Before the addition of the Pigalle, the Monroe also had superior braking and handling to all sports-classics.

Even so, despite having been outmatched in braking and traction by DLC cars, the Monroe is still well kept as a nonetheless competitive car, probably having the most balanced combination between top speed and handling on the class. Being a relatively old vehicle, the braking was not very good even before the Pigalle, but it will still stop from its top speed faster than all other non-DLC classic cars.

Trivia

  • In the beta it shared its rim design with the Willard from GTA IV.
  • The default radio station of this car is Los Santos Rock Radio, Vinewood Boulevard Radio or Radio Mirror Park.
  • The tires seem to be modern high-performance tires, while the spare tire is a space-saver with wire wheels.
  • If given the right paint job (and possibly the right crew emblem) from , it will resemble the Yakuza Miara from GTA 2.
  • The Six Gun muscle rims are as close as you can get to the rims like on the Lamborghini Miura.
  • It is possible this vehicle was named Monroe after the singer, Matt Monro, who sang the song at the beginning of The Italian Job, which featured an orange Lamborghini Miura (which this vehicle is based on).

Cultural References

  • It is possible this vehicle was named Monroe after the singer, Matt Monro, who sang the song at the beginning of The Italian Job, which featured an orange Lamborghini Miura.
  • Curiously, a real life Lamborghini Miura was bought for $490,000 (The same price as the Monroe in Legendary Motorsports) in an auction by the actor Nicolas Cage, being the highest price the model was ever sold for (Excluding the S, SV, and SVJ) .
  • In the mission Pack Man the yellow Monroe that had been stolen by Lamar features a license plate reading "FAST 66". This references the first appearance of the Lamborghini Miura P400 Prototype, occurring in 1966 in the Geneva motor show, and maybe also implying the in-game car was manufactured the same year. It could also be a reference to 'Fast 6' aka. the film Fast and Furious 6.
  • This is one of four cars that share their names with former US Presidents, the other three being the Jefferson, the Washington and the Roosevelt.
