- "French design and Italian construction, so expect style over substance and regular breakdowns. The Pigalle, a high performance coupé, is an icon of 70s motoring and bad taste. No wonder the ironically disposed love it."
- ―Southernsanandreassuperautos.com description.
The Pigalle is based on the European styling of the Maserati Merak and Ghibli I, while its front fascia, headlights and hood design are derived from the Citroën SM. Its rear fascia most closely resembles that of the Ghibli I. The greenhouse and overall body shape and design resembles that of the Alpine A310.
The Pigalle is a front engined, front wheel drive vehicle, as a result it often lends itself to regular understeer, but still otherwise has the best traction in its class. Being powered by a small V6, acceleration is good, getting to 60 mph in the 6-second range. Speed is also acceptable, with its top speed being in the 190 mph range. Braking is strong, being the best of the Sport Classics. Handling is excellent, thanks to good weight distribution and low center of gravity.
Overall, for the Sport-Classics class, the Pigalle could be considered on the opposite scale performance wise of the Coquette Classic and Monroe, where as the Coquette has the best acceleration and speed, the Pigalle has the best braking and traction. Due precisely of these traits, this vehicle could get the best of Los Santos Customs' upgrades, as most of them are mainly focused in acceleration.

- The name comes from the French sculptor Jean-Baptiste Pigalle, whose name was also given to the Quartier Pigalle area in Paris famous for being a hotspot of cabarets (like the famous Moulin Rouge) sex shops and strip clubs.
