The Pegassi Infernus is one of the most sought-after vehicles in Grand Theft Auto V. The sleek, Italian-made supercar is one of the fastest cars in the game, and its unique design makes it a desirable choice for the player.
Being behind the steering wheel for the first time was a pretty exhilarating experience for me. I cruised along the Los Santos highway and discovered that the car wasn’t only a looker, it had some serious power! I was able to carry out stunts and maneuvers, and it almost felt like shooting for the next Tom Cruise movie.
The Pegassi Infernus may not be the fastest car in the game, but it definitely has one of the most unique and exciting designs. In this Pegassi Infernus guide, I’ll be helping you explore all the nitty gritty aspects of the Infernus so you can have an idea of what the fuss is really about.
Pegassi Infernus Overview
The Pegassi Infernus is a two-door coupe that will make you fall in love at first sight. The Pegassi Infernus is based on several real-life sports cars from Lamborghini’s roster. Not only that, it features a clean and elegant design with sharp curves, low-profile headlights, and a low hood.
The car is powered by a V8 engine, which produces a powerful roar when revved up. The Infernus is a petrolhead’s dream come true with superb handling, allowing it to perform well on both city roads and on the race track. In fact, It is one of the fastest cars in the game and is often a favorite among car enthusiasts.
The Infernus is an extremely expensive purchase, costing an astounding 440,000 dollars. If you don’t have the means to purchase it, you can always find it parked at Vespucci Beach, The Richman Hotel, Pacific Bluffs, Vinewood Racetrack, Mirror Park, West Vinewood, Rockford Hills, and Outside Lost Santos Customs. No one’s going to question where you got your Infernus from!
The design of the Pegassi Infernus is based on the Lamborghini Gallardo, with some elements from the Lamborghini Aventador and Lamborghini Murcielago. The car has a low-slung, sleek body with sharp lines and curves and an aggressive stance. The front of the car features a large, blacked-out grille and a pair of headlights that give it a menacing look.
The exterior is painted in bright, bold colors, with a two-tone black and red paint job as the default option. It also features a unique grille pattern, side vents, and a rear spoiler.
All in all, the Pegassi Infernus draws lots of inspiration from Lamborghini’s line-up, making it stand out on the road.
The Infernus has a top speed of 125 MPH but can go up to a whopping 150 MPH if you let your wallet do the talking. Not many will be able to compete with you, especially if you’re a frequent drag racer, since anything above 120 MPH is a menace to deal with.
As a result, few cars are able to compete with it, making it a strong choice for players who want a fast and competitive vehicle. I had this feeling of superiority and pride on the roads of Los Santos, where hardly anyone challenged me to a race because they knew what they’d be up against.
If you think the Infernus is too fast for you, that’s because it is. Its acceleration is incredibly responsive and stable, allowing you to reach its top speed in just 3.1 seconds, which is remarkable, keeping in mind that the supercar weighs in at around 2700 pounds!
At first glance, I couldn’t believe how quick the Infernus was until I put it to the test against the Coil Voltic, which is known to have one of the top acceleration rates. While the competition was pretty tough, Infernus came out as the winner every time.
The Pegassi Infernus has smooth handling and grip, allowing you to easily navigate those tight corners and spaces, even if you’re not the best GTA driver out there. It has a low center of gravity combined with a powerful engine and a stiff suspension allowing it to accelerate quickly, turn sharply and make sudden changes in direction with ease.
Whether you’re in a race or trying to outrun the police, the car’s exceptional handling makes it possible. You won’t need to worry about understeering or oversteering, and its handling is probably one of the car’s unique selling points.
You would think a car with a price tag of almost half a million would be able to withstand even the roughest of crashes. However, I felt that the Pegassi Infernus didn’t live up to its whopping price in terms of durability.
Don’t get me wrong; it is pretty durable as far as the rear and front are concerned. The sides, however, didn’t live up to their expectation.
If you’ve got enough bucks in the game to purchase the Pegassi Infernus, I’m sure you’ll have enough to spend some on it while it’s parked inside Los Santos Customs. The great thing about the Infernus is that you can combine its cosmetic customizations with a plethora of things in Los Santos Customs to add to its already pleasing aesthetics.
However, be careful with the performance side. While having a beefy upgraded car is always good, make sure you’re familiar with the mechanics of handling it since that is a common issue with race cars. Also, make sure you have a decent amount of cash since upgrading the Infernus will take a heavy toll on your bank account.
While the Infernus Pegassi is a formidable car, it’s always a good idea to take precautions against other players who may try to cause grief you in GTA Online. One way to protect your vehicle is by getting armor upgrades, which is worth considering if you want to keep your luxury ride safe and secure.
Ultimately, it’s better to be safe than sorry, and investing in armor upgrades can give you peace of mind while driving in the unpredictable world of GTA Online.
|Armor||GTA V||GTA Online|
|Armor Upgrade 20 Percent||2500 Dollars||7500 Dollars|
|Armor Upgrade 40 Percent||6250 Dollars||12000 Dollars|
|Armor Upgrade 60 Percent||10000 Dollars||20000 Dollars|
|Armor Upgrade 80 Percent||17,500 Dollars||30000 Dollars|
|Armor Upgrade 100 Percent||25000 Dollars||50000 Dollars|
The Infernus does have quite the impressive brakes by default since it is a race car, but if you want to improve your braking further, we suggest you max them out.
They will help you prevent unnecessary crashes, especially if you’re in the mood for a long drive at top speed, helping your car come to a standstill.
|Brakes||GTA V||GTA Online|
|Street Brakes||10000 Dollars||20000 Dollars|
|Sport Brakes||13,500 Dollars||27000 Dollars|
|Race Brakes||17,500 Dollars||35000 Dollars|
While the Infernus Pegassi already has a strong engine, you can further its overall performance if interested. After all, an engine upgrade can improve acceleration, making it easier to win drag races or other high-stakes driving situations.
Additionally, as a petrolhead, you may enjoy the process of upgrading and customizing your car to your liking. While the Infernus is already a capable vehicle, engine upgrades can help to take its performance to the next level.
The good thing is that the EMS upgrades on the Infernus are cheaper than most of its lavish upgrades, so get on that Los Santos highway and put the pedal to the metal with your new engine.
|EMS Upgrades||GTA V||GTA Online|
|EMS Upgrade Level 1||4500 Dollars||9000 Dollars|
|EMS Upgrade Level 2||6250 Dollars||12,500 Dollars|
|EMS Upgrade Level 3||9000 Dollars||18000 Dollars|
|EMS Upgrade Level 4||16,750 Dollars||33500 Dollars|
You don’t have a whole lot of Exhaust options with the Infernus, primarily due to its stock exhaust being one of the best in the business, and let’s be honest, it is quite a looker. However, the one Exhaust upgrade it provides does make the car look even sicker, all for the low cost of 750 dollars!
So while it’s unneeded, there is no harm in spending 750 dollars if you’ve already spent around a million on the car.
|Exhaust||GTA V||GTA Online|
|Custom Shotgun Exhaust||375 Dollars||750 Dollars|
While lights offer no visible advantage (pun intended) in GTA V, you can still spend some bucks on adding to the aesthetic of your Infernus so that whenever you’re showcasing and showing off your cars with your buddies, your ride looks the best!
Lights definitely aren’t cheap for the Pegassi Infernus, so we recommend you give your bank account a break and save the extra dollars for other essential modifications.
|Lights||GTA V||GTA Online|
|Xenon Lights||1450 Dollars||7500 Dollars|
I’m a pretty reckless driver, so many times, I’ll find myself in situations where I’ll have absolutely demolished my car beyond repair. Even if I’m trying to be sensible, the Gods of GTA will release that one guy on me who wants to take away my ride from me. This is where Loss/Theft Prevention, or insurance in more common terms, will come into play.
Loss/Theft Prevention is an affordable way to get your car repaired or even replaced in the aftermath of an accident. Such a backup can be especially useful if you’re an aggressive driver who participates in high-risk activities quite often.
While you can repair or replace your car without this insurance, it will naturally be more expensive. With that said, Loss/Theft Prevention is useful for anyone looking to safeguard their vehicle in GTA Online.
|Loss/ Theft Prevention||GTA Online|
|Full Coverage||7500 Dollars|
There are only a handful of Plates to choose from in GTA, and while they serve no purpose performance-wise, you could get them changed if you’re bored of looking at yours. It isn’t something I’d waste my time on, so you could skip them if you want to.
|Plates||GTA V||GTA Online|
|Blue on White 1||50 Dollars||200 Dollars|
|Blue on White 2||50 Dollars||200 Dollars|
|Blue on White 3||50 Dollars||200 Dollars|
|Yellow on Blue||75 Dollars||300 Dollars|
|Yellow on Black||150 Dollars||600 Dollars|
You’re getting a supercar that doesn’t have a spoiler? Get yourself into Los Santos Customs right now and get one immediately! You’ll only get two options to choose from, and to be honest, they look tremendously sick. While the devs of GTA could’ve given you more options, considering it’s a pretty exotic car, let’s be grateful for what we’re given.
I prefer the High-Level Spoiler to the GT Wing because I believe it complements the Infernus more aesthetically. The GT is also a bit taller in height, which doesn’t really suit my style. But who’s stopping you from getting what you want?
|Spoilers||GTA V||GTA Online|
|High-Level Spoiler||3750 Dollars||7050 Dollars|
|GT Wing||5000 Dollars||10000 Dollars|
The Pegassi Infernus has a stiff suspension, which makes maneuvering the car easy on sharp turns and is optimal for a drag race/race environment. If you’re looking to beat some dudes in a drag race, opt for the Sports Suspension, an upgraded version of the Lowered Suspension that will provide you with smooth stability and handling.
If that doesn’t seem enough, the competition suspension is the lowest of them all and will give you maximum stability. Whether you’re driving on a straight road with nothing to stop you or in an intense race with too many turns, this suspension will be the key factor for you to go past the finish line before anyone else does.
|Suspension||GTA V||GTA Online|
|Lowered Suspension||500 Dollars||1000 Dollars|
|Street Suspension||1000 Dollars||2000 Dollars|
|Sports Suspension||1700 Dollars||3400 Dollars|
|Competition Suspension||2200 Dollars||4400 Dollars|
The Infernus already has top-notch acceleration and speed, and upgrading its transmission is bound to make handling a little challenging. So while you could try equipping the hefty transmission, tread carefully.
The Infernus doesn’t need an acceleration boost since it already beats the Coil Voltic easily, but if you want to swing with the best transmission, get yourself the Race Transmission. Don’t blame me if the car gets too hot for you to handle because I’m telling you; it’s gonna get pretty fast.
|Transmission||GTA V||GTA Online|
|Street Transmission||14,750 Dollars||29,500 Dollars|
|Sports Transmission||16,250 Dollars||32,500 Dollars|
|Race Transmission||20000 Dollars||40000 Dollars|
If you’re looking to tinker with your Grotti Turismo R to achieve the highest top speed possible, then the Turbo upgrade is definitely something to consider.
But do bear in mind that while it does increase the top speed, it takes a toll on the car’s handling, so that trade-off is something to account for. If you prefer raw speed above handling and maneuverability, then be my guest with this upgrade!
|Turbo||GTA V||GTA Online|
|Turbo Tuning||12,500 Dollars||50000 Dollars|
The Infernus can be customized with various wheels; however, the one thing you need to focus on, especially if you’re in GTA online, is getting your hands on the bulletproof tires. Otherwise, you may find yourself constantly hounded by griefers.
While bulletproof tires won’t completely eliminate the risk of being targeted by griefers, they will protect you to a significant degree.
I also added the smoke tires to my Infernus on top of the bulletproof feature; trust me, it looked pretty awesome!
|Wheels||GTA V||GTA Online|
|Custom Tires||2500 Dollars||5000 Dollars|
Upgrading Windows is just a personal preference in GTA V and doesn’t really offer anything. If your real-life car has tinted windows, you can add them to your Infernus to get a personal flavor to it, but other than that, they’re pretty pointless.
I really liked the Light Smoke windows because as much as I want my privacy, I also want others to see my character’s face while I drive this beauty in the streets of Los Santos.
|Windows||GTA V||GTA Online|
|Light Smoke||200 Dollars||1500 Dollars|
|Dark Smoke||450 Dollars||3500 Dollars|
|Limo||700 Dollars||5000 Dollars|
Alternative: Grotti Cheetah
If you can’t afford the Pegassi Infernus and are interested in something similar, but at a lower price point, then the Grotti Cheetah is definitely something to consider. With a design that can be best described as classic, the Grotti Cheetah draws inspiration from the original Ferrari F40.
As far as its performance goes, the Cheetah’s V8 Engine is quite powerful, to the point of outputting a top speed of 155 mph and an acceleration such that it speeds up from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.5 seconds. Moreover, the car is not held back by its handling or breaking, allowing you to enjoy it regardless of whether you’re racing or cruising.
Question: How Much Is The Pegassi Infernus?
Answer: The Pegassi Infernus will cost you a whopping $440,000 at the Southern San Andreas Autos.
Question: Is The Pegassi Infernus Best For Racing?
Answer: There are only a handful of other cars faster than the Infernus, but if you’re a good driver, you’ll be able to take down most of the GTA community during a race.
Question: Can The Pegassi Infernus Be Found In The Map?
Answer: You can get your hands on the Infernus whether you’re playing single-player or online at Vespucci Beach, The Richman Hotel, Pacific Bluffs, Vinewood Racetrack, Mirror Park, West Vinewood, Rockford Hills, and Outside Lost Santos Customs.
So that’s all folks for the Pegassi Infernus. With all these features, the Pegassi Infernus is the perfect choice for any GTA V player looking for a great car to either take on a race challenge or go out on a late-night stroll in the heart of Los Santos.
For me, the car is a 9/10 due to its aesthetics as well as the drive, although it does suffer a tad bit in the durability department.
