"Special edition Dukes muscle car for the post-apocalypse wasteland. Just hope there's not a fuel scarcity when the world ends, because this thing gets worse gas mileage than a one-legged zombie. Exclusive content for returning players."
Warstock Cache & Carry description.

The Imponte Duke O'Death is a two-door armored muscle car in the enhanced version of Grand Theft Auto V. It can also be obtained in Grand Theft Auto Online, but cannot be stored as a personal vehicle.

Description

It is a specialized variant of the Dukes. The vehicle is exclusive to players who have already played seventh console generation versions of the game, and is not available to all eighth generation players.

Design

Grand Theft Auto V

The Duke O'Death is a highly modified variant of the Dukes; as such, it is based on the 1968-1970 Dodge Charger. It features the same chassis and body as the normal Dukes, but comes with custom front bullbars, a rollcage, an external rollbar with lights attached, rear louvers, side exit exhausts, decreased ground clearance and protective armor plates covering the windows and windshield. It also features a unique supercharger ram air scoop on its hood. Its paintjob seems to come in matte black as default.

Performance

Grand Theft Auto V

The Duke O'Death is powered by a supercharged, high-output V8 engine, capable of providing excellent torque and top speed. In contrast with the normal variant of the Dukes, this vehicle seems to have better acceleration and top speed, although the vehicle has a tendency to oversteer at high speeds. Another downside is its poor braking abilities, however these can be easily tweaked to a much better working state in any Los Santos Customs mod garage.

Durability is excellent, as the Duke O'Death is able to ram and push other vehicles off the road with ease thanks to its increased mass, and the car's bodywork is very strong. Crash deformation is very minimal, and it can be said that this vehicle has some of the best durability traits in its class. Successfully combining the use of Franklin's Special Ability and the ramming ability of this car can make the car as effective as a Phantom, in terms of crashing. However, the Duke O'Death can still be destroyed by a Sticky Bomb or a direct hit from the Rhino's cannon. The Rhino can also run over and crush the car.

Trivia

  • It shares its front bullbar design with those found on police vehicles.
  • The Duke O'Death's design may be a reference to the film Death Race, which revolves around the racing of heavily armored (and armed) road vehicles. Specifically, the 2008 remake features several cars similar in design to the Duke O'Death, including the Kuruma, which also has an armored variant.
    • The car's overall look also appears to be an homage to the Pursuit Special used by the titular character in the Mad Max movies.
  • Much like the Roosevelt, the Duke O'Death has no default radio station; the radio will be switched off whenever the player enters the vehicle.
  • Once the player enters the Duke O'Death for the first time in the Random Event, semi-trucks and some cars will begin to attack the player. This is a reference to the Steven Spielberg movie Duel. Indeed, the random event is named "Duel".
  • Its name may be a reference to the fictional book "Duke of Death", from Clint Eastwood's movie Unforgiven.
  • In Warstock Cache & Carry, the vehicle has no description on it, appearing with a blank space. However, it was patched in the Heists Update.
  • In GTA Online, glitched Duke O'Deaths modded in from singleplayer were made to automatically explode upon entry during Free Roam, and are immobile during races. These are used as deterrents for obtaining glitched vehicles.
  • The Duke O'Death can be one of the vehicles used during Moving Target in GTA Online.
  • Its Rockstar Games Social Club image appears to have its hood slightly open.
  • There is a bug where when the player changes the color of the car and the player returns the car to the garage instead of the house, the car's color will revert to Matte Black.
