|Not to be confused with the now-dubbed Virgo Classic, which was named "Virgo" pre-GTA Online.|
Not to be confused with the Vigero, a vehicle with a similar name in GTA IV and GTA V.
- "In a postwar car industry awash with fins, scoops and ornamental hubcaps the Virgo stood out as something more composed and thoughtful. Don't let the rhino-horn fittings, onboard minibar and the fact that it handles like a shipping container on shopping cart wheels deceive you: this is as close as the American car industry has ever come to elegance."
- ―Legendary Motorsport description.
The Virgo was added to Grand Theft Auto V as part of the Ill-Gotten Gains Part 1 update, and takes a different approach to the now-dubbed Virgo Classic, which was originally found in the 3D Universe, and later introduced into GTA Online, renaming the car's historic features. Manufactured by Albany, the vehicle's general body style is inspired by the sixth generation Cadillac Eldorado and the Lincoln Continental Mark III - Mark IV, the front grille and headlights resembling a 1967 Chrysler Newport and the rear resembling a 1968 Newport, with available modifications adding a very pronounced rear mounted spare tire and rear wheel arch covers and some design cues from early 1970s Cadillac Eldorado models.

Grand Theft Auto V
The Virgo in GTA V has improved speed and handling compared to its GTA IV counterpart, although its performance is rather lacking in its class. The engine feels large and powerful, but is held back by the very heavy body. While a fair bit slower than other muscle cars, the Virgo doesn't produce understeer when tackling sharp corners and can be easily recovered when it begins to drift. The same heavy steel construction that slows it down gives it excellent durability, however. Braking power is very good for an old, heavy muscle car.
Despite the website description saying it has the handling of "a shipping container on shopping car wheels", the Virgo has very good, if not one of the best, handling profiles for the "muscle" class.
The Virgo can be heard with a loud rattling sound, notable at high speed. It sounds to be a problem with the mesh on manual gearboxes, where the mesh gears aren't lining up correctly, a common problem on late 60's and early 70's cars with manual transmission.
