"At some point, anyone who's anyone in Los Santos has looked out over a ten-car garage full of nothing but stock Elegies and wondered what the hell they're doing with their life. Well, thanks to Benny you can wonder no more: now every one of those beauties is a nostalgia-fueled, mod-drenched, early 90s retro custom classic just waiting to happen."
Benny's Original Motor Works description.

The Annis Elegy Retro Custom is a custom variant of the Elegy RH8, featured in Grand Theft Auto Online as part of the Import/Export update.

Design

Grand Theft Auto Online

The Elegy Retro Custom is based on a blend of multiple generations of the Nissan Skyline GT-R. The vehicle's front fascia is based on the fourth generation Nissan Skyline GT-R (R33), while the side, rear, and general shape of the car takes inspiration from the third generation Nissan Skyline GT-R (R32), and the tail lights are from the fifth generation Nissan Skyline GT-R (R34). Further user modification can make the Elegy Retro Custom resemble one specific generation of the Skyline range.

The Elegy Retro Custom is the classic counterpart of the Elegy RH8, sporting a simpler look and more traditional headlights and tail lights. The overall look seems to be based on the Elegy from Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, with a more realistic appearance.

Performance

Grand Theft Auto Online

Due to its age, the Elegy Retro Custom ends up being slower than the original Elegy RH8 (similar to the relationship between the Comet and Comet Retro Custom); however, it is still a top contender in the Sports class due to its all wheel drive, giving it a boost in acceleration and handling. The top speed is lower than that of the RH8, and will lose ground at high speeds in comparison to the Pariah and Schafter V12. The Elegy Retro Custom's strength is mainly in tight corners, similar to the RH8.

Trivia

  • The description on Benny's website is an obvious play on the situation where new players would often fill their garages with the free Elegy RH8s.
  • With the correct modifications, the player has the option to remove both of the licence plates, making it illegal on the road.
  • The "Not Tonight Pizzaboy" livery is an obvious reference to the quote "Street's closed, pizzaboy" from The Fast & The Furious, in which said scene featured a custom yellow Nissan Skyline R33 GT-R.
    • In a similar fashion, the "Midnight Racer" livery is an obvious nod to the Nissan Skyline R34 GT-R famously driven by the late Paul Walker in 2 Fast 2 Furious.
  • The default radio stations of the Elegy Retro Custom are FlyLo FM and Soulwax FM.
  • The "LTD" livery is a reference to the ADVAN/STP Nissan Skyline R32 GT-R which competed in the Japanese Touring Car Championship.
  • The "Meinmacht" livery is a reference to the CALSONIC Nissan Skyline R32 GT-R, which won many victories in the Japanese Touring Car Championship.
  • The "Redwood Racing" livery is a reference to the Gibson Motorsport Group A Nissan Skyline R32 of which wore the livery of Winfield Cigarettes during the Australian Group A championships of 1992.
  • The "Drift Missile" livery is a reference to drift missiles, beater vehicles used as throwaway cars for drifting.
  • The number 23 used on the "Meinmacht" livery is a reference to the number 23 being used on Nissan racing cars as wordplay, as in Japanese it is read as "Ni-San".
  • The door handle on the right-hand door appears to be absent, though it can still be opened without issues.
