In this game, the car is very fast, having a high top speed and excellent acceleration. Game files prove it has a maximum top speed of 405km/h and it has a "turbo" engine. Despite the cons, the car's handling is very sharp and prone to oversteering. One can lose control of it very fast, if care isn't taken. On the other hand, the handling is very responsible, so the player can stop before a crash without problems too. It's engine noise is shared with the [[Meteor]], [[Trance AM]], [[Miara]] and many others.

Like its counterpart in GTA V, it has very characteristic handling, with a high top speed and excellent acceleration, but is very prone to tailspins and can be difficult to control. However, in the hands of an experienced driver, it can be a useful getaway car, especially in timed missions.
  +
  +
=== GTA V ===
  +
The vehicle is powered by a massive V12 engine, which is capable of powering the vehicle up to impressive top speeds. The car has a very characteristic handling that results in its ability to calmly accelerate and easily weave through light traffic. This gives the player the impression that it is a relatively easy car to drive, but it is also prone to sudden and unexpected spinouts upon cornering at any speed. Due to its poor weight distribution and soft suspension, it is prone to oversteer, and counter-steering is extremely difficult. Despite what the speedometer reads in game, it actually has the highest top speed out of all cars in GTA V when fully upgraded, even being able to slowly outrun the [[Adder]] in a straight line.
