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

DesignEdit

The design of this car seems to be heavily inspired by the Lamborghini Miura with elements from the Ford GT40 for the front fascia. The tailights are derived from the 1969 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray.

PerformanceEdit

The Monroe is one of the fastest classic cars in the game, with its speed only being matched by the JB 700, achieving about 207 mph (despite what legendarymotorsport.net states). Acceleration was once best in class (being bested by the Coquette Classic), reaching 60 mph in the 5 second range. Before the addition of the Pigalle, the Monroe had superior braking and handling to all sports-classics, but despite this, traction is still well kept. Braking was not very good even before the Pigalle, but will still stop from its top speed faster than all other non-DLC cars in its class.

TriviaEdit

  • 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) .
  • 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.
  • 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.

Cultural ReferencesEdit

  • In the mission Pack Man, the yellow Monroe that had been stolen by Lamar featured a license plate reading "FAST 66", this would be an indication of the year of the car's manufacture (1966). This reflects the first appearance of the Lamborghini Miura P400 Prototype, occurring in 1966 in the Geneva motor show. It could also be a reference to 'Fast 6' aka. the film Fast and Furious 6.
