"The Mamba harks back to a simpler time in car design, when the only real question was how much engine you could cram into an elegant frame before it tore itself apart. Judging from the night morality rate Declasse hit a winning formula - but don't take our word for it. Once you hit the freeway and feel that primal roar beneath you as the bodywork starts to disintegrate, you'll know you made the right choice."
Legendary Motorsport description.

The Declasse Mamba is a vehicle in Grand Theft Auto 1 and Grand Theft Auto Online as part of the GTA Online: Executives and Other Criminals Update.


Grand Theft Auto 1

In Grand Theft Auto 1, like its counterpart, the Beast GTS, it is based on a Dodge Viper. The car is distinghished by its curvy rear and open top.

This article or section refers to content in the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC renditions of Grand Theft Auto V, that is not featured on the Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 versions.
For a complete list of the features of the "enhanced" version of Grand Theft Auto V, please see here.

The Mamba returns to Grand Theft Auto Online and is now based on the AC Cobra (MkIII). A lot of influence can be seen in the front fascia, front grille, headlight arrangement, and rear fascia. It features the iconic chrome rollbars curved behind the seats, the large frontal grille, and the iconic circular headlights defined from the vehicle.

On the side profiling, large side mounted exhausts can be seen, making their way down the sides, past the doors. The vehicle also features a hood intake into the engine, and a thin red-bar through the center of the grille. Two smaller spotlights can be found mounted into the front grille as well. 

In the greenhouse area, chrome lining finishes the curved window, followed by small, vintage chrome mirrors.

Apart from the aforementioned details, the Mamba will also spawn in two other forms: a traditional hardtop version and a "race" version, which removes the windshield and adds a rear seat rollbar based on traditional rollbars used on the AC Cobras, as well as a front splitter mounted under the front fascia.

The car has a high top speed, handles well, but suffers from low durability.

Performance statistics on the Rockstar Games Social Club.

The Mamba is powered by a high-displacement V8, apparent by the website description, sound, and in-game model. The vehicle has limited traction around tighter corners that would require the use of a handbrake, meaning the car takes a relatively long time to set off without wheel spinning. While the car has average traction, its steering is pretty sensitive, though an experienced driver can recover spin outs easily, and thus does not pose much of a problem for the vehicle.

The car has a high top speed, reached in a relatively long amount of time, and, braking is pretty fair; the car's traction means the car takes a while to come to a full stop. It has fragile durability and can only take a couple of hard collisions before the Mamba's performance becomes affected.
