Not to be confused with the DFT-30, a flatbed truck featured in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.

The Imponte DF8-90 is a four-door sports sedan featured exclusively in Grand Theft Auto IV.

Badging on the DF8-90.

This car has a highly debatable design; however, it takes many design cues from the Pontiac G6 (main styling/shape, and the bottom of the front clip), the 1999-2005 Pontiac Grand Am (the greenhouse/roof), the Saturn Ion (the shape of the back doors); although the headlights look close to the ones on an Ion, judging by the narrowness, they are closer to the 2006-2011 Honda Civic; the taillights look somewhat like that of the 2000-2005 Pontiac Bonneville (the reverse lights integrated on the strip with "IMPONTE" on it seems similar to the ones on the 1995-1999 Chevrolet Luminas, the actual strip itself is closer to the Bonneville). The black-tinted roof and rear lights that run the length of the car are inspired from the Subaru SVX. The platform itself is closely related to that of the Pontiac G8. The dashboard features red lighting, a Pontiac trademark.

Despite its near similar design, the DF8-90 is available in three different variants, each identifiable by the presence of a spoiler or the type of spoilers used, and their badges on the trunk lid. The base variant, which has no apparent indication of what engine it has, has no spoiler, the 3.8 liter Supercharged V6 Sport variant, however, features a basic spoiler, while the top-of-the-line 5.3 liter Supercharged V8 Turbo (Imponte Racing) variant features a larger curved spoiler. Otherwise, all three variants share exactly the same body and range of body colors, and handling.



Acceleration is respectable, with 0-60 mph manageable in 6.5 seconds, and is among the best in its class (RWD 4-door sedans). The high-output engine, coupled to a 5-speed gearbox with a smooth powerband gives the DF8-90 a high top speed of 192 mph (309 km/h), while the V8 Turbo variant can reach 200 mph (320 km/h). The powerful engines on all models make this car easy to slide/oversteer, and as a result can drift and powerslide very easily while being controllable.

Handling wise, although it sacrifices ride, it makes up for it by being very good with avoidance maneuvers and scores above average, not far in top speed to far more expensive vehicles. Accident deformation is good, considering its rather sporty nature, but it isn't the best. The cabin holds up well and the same goes for the roof. The DF8-90 can sustain multiple frontal impacts before becoming immobilised or catching fire.

The requested DF8-90 in Stevie's Car Thefts.

A DF8-90 is requested as part of Stevie's Car Thefts, featuring a uniquely light blue body color, but may appear in the form of any of the car's three variants. This vehicle can be found parked underneath the Hove Beach LTA station in Broker. As a new DF8-90 will re-spawn at the same spot until the player delivers one to S&M Auto Sales, the player can save one at their safe-house before delivering another.




  • The DF8-90 is equipped with a GPS system with a female voice, but only if the player leaves the "selected cars" (default) option in the audio menu.
  • In GTA IV, the V8 Turbo DF8-90 shares its trunk spoiler with the Primo V8 supercharged variant.
  • This is one of the best vehicles to use when attempting the Swing Glitch.
  • The default radio stations in the DF8-90 are:
  • A glitch may sometimes allow for the blue DF8-90 required for Stevie's Car Thefts to continue spawning under Hove Beach subway station even after all deliveries are complete. This one, however, will not retain its paint job after being resprayed.
  • The DF8-90 shares its interior with the Bravado Feroci. Same goes to the Karin Intruder
