"Close your eyes. Cast your mind back to your early teens. You're lying in bed, hand gyrating at incredible speed under the covers, your eyes fixed on the torchlit centerfolds pinned to the back of your wardrobe. That sumptuous body, those exquisite curves, that billowing rear exhaust. Now open your eyes. Your hand is still in your pants, but the dream is real. Finish the job."
Legendary Motorsport description.

The Penetrator is a sports car featured in Grand Theft Auto 1 and a two-door super car featured in Grand Theft Auto Online as part of the Import/Export update. It is manufactured by Ocelot in the HD Universe.

Design

Grand Theft Auto 1

The Penetrator is a sports car that appears in two versions. The Liberty City variant is simply the Porka with its roof up, while the San Andreas/Vice City variant is based on a Porsche 911.

Grand Theft Auto Online

This article or section refers to content in the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC renditions of Grand Theft Auto V and/or Grand Theft Auto Online, 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.
V

The vehicle appears to be heavily based on the Jaguar XJ220, seen heavily in the overall curvature of the beltline and rear window design, as well as appearing to feature the rear lights from the Lamborghini Diablo VT and a rear grille similar to the one found in the Bugatti EB110. The front bumper appears based on the one found in the Chevrolet Corvette Indy concept car.

Unlike its real-life counterpart, the Penetrator does not feature flip-down headlights. Due to this, the front fascia seems to be based on the Jaguar XJ220S TWR, a track tuned version of the XJ220.

Performance

Grand Theft Auto 1

Grand Theft Auto Online

The vehicle has a mid-engine configuration and a very low ride height. Low profile tires are found on the vehicle's wheels. Despite the Penetrator's long profile, the car has relatively good maneuverability, possibly due to the position of the front wheels and the steering range.

It is powered by a single cam V12 engine equipped with 12 throttle bodies, coupled to a 5-speed gearbox in a mid-engine, all wheel drive (30% front, 70% rear distribution) layout.

As the Penetrator has a much higher speed than other supercars in-game, it makes it a much worthy competitor for races with its all-around handling and excellent speed and acceleration.

The Penetrator appears to have some oversteer when entering corners quickly and can sometimes lead to it powersliding. This happens often if performing a 90-degree turn at high speeds and turning sharply.

Trivia

General

  • The Penetrator is one of seven vehicles in GTA Online to return from the 2D Universe, the others being the Z-Type, Tour Bus, Furore GT, Mamba, Panto, and Itali GTB.
  • The Penetrator previously held the longest gap between its last appearance and re-appearance until it was beaten by the Itali GTB on January 10th, 2017, which was released a month later.
  • The name of the vehicle is a reference to the sexual act of penetration, continuing on Rockstar's lewd humour.
    • This is further explained from the Legendary Motorsport website, which further emphasizes its lewd humor.
    • It was also on sale during the Valentine's Day 2017 event week, providing even more crude humor on Rockstar's part.

Grand Theft Auto Online

  • If modified with a rear spoiler, it can resemble the Jaguar XJ220S, a homologated motorsport version of the XJ220.
