The '''Infernus''' is a sports car that has appeared in all games of [[GTA III Era]] (except Grand Theft Auto Advance), [[Grand Theft Auto IV]] and [[Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars]]. Players who pre-orded GTA Chinatown Wars from Amazon are able to purchase a bulletproof Infernus early in the game.

The '''Infernus''' is a supercar that was first introduced in [[Grand Theft Auto III]] and has appeared in eight additional [[Grand Theft Auto]] titles since (if counting [[Grand Theft Auto Online]]).
  
 
== Design ==
 
== Design ==
In GTA III and GTA Liberty City Stories, it resembles a Vector M12. In GTA Vice City and GTA Vice City Stories, it closely resembles a Lamborghini Countach, but it lacks the characteristic scissor doors. Although it seems to be mid-engined, the engine is visible under the front hood, possibly due to limitations of the GTA III and Vice City game engines. In GTA San Andreas, it resembles a Honda/Acura NSX, most likely the Acura model because it was exported in North America. Also, the Infernus can be modded in any [[TransFender]] Branch throughout the whole [[State of San Andreas]].
+
; 3D Universe
  
The GTA IV rendition is an amalgamation of the [[wp:Lamborghini Murcielago|Lamborghini Murcielago LP640]], with the body shape of the [[wp:Lamborghini Diablo|Lamborghini Diablo SV]], and the rear end obviously inspired by the [[wp:Pagani Zonda|Pagani Zonda]]; the car also features scissor doors, the only car in the game with such doors. The Infernus you obtain from [[Bernie Crane]], after completing all of his missions, is the only modded version in the game. It sports a stripe on the sideskirt, black sports rims, and a one-of-a-kind bright orange paint job which will not appear anywhere else in the game.
+
Between [[Grand Theft Auto III]] and [[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories]], the Infernus appeared in three different forms, each illustrating the car as a sleek, low-profile supercar comparable to the [[Cheetah]].
 +
 
 +
* In [[Grand Theft Auto III]] and [[Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories]], it resembles a [[wp:Vector M12|Vector M12]] with the rear end incorporating elements of a [[wp:Lamborghini Diablo|Lamborghini Diablo]]. It may also be a cross between a [[wp:Jaguar XJR-15|Jaguar XJR-15]] and a [[wp:Jaguar XJ220|Jaguar XJ220]]. However, like with the M12 and Diablo, the Infernus has a V12 engine. During [[Beta Releases#Grand Theft Auto III|development of GTA III]], one of the earliest known names given to the car is the "'''Dyablo'''", a nod to the Lamborghini Diablo name; contrary to its final form, the car shares an uncanny resemblance to the Lamborghini Diablo and is illustrated without a rear spoiler. The car in its earlier form and with its earlier name is depicted on the [[Capital Autos]] website.
 +
* In [[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City]] and [[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories]], it closely resembles a [[wp:Lamborghini Countach|Lamborghini Countach LP 500]], but lacks the characteristic [[wp:Scissor doors|scissor doors]], and features bulging headlights and round taillights. During development of GTA Vice City, early screenshots hinted of a design closer to the Countach LP 500, featuring a sleeker and more angular frontage, blocky lights, and a heightened spoiler.
 +
* In [[Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas]], the Infernus is based on a first-generation [[wp:Honda NSX|Honda/Acura NSX]] and [[wp:Cizeta-Moroder V16T|Cizeta-Moroder V16T]], the original design of the Lamborghini Diablo prototype before being changed by [[wp:Chrysler|Chrysler]]. The bumpers are reminiscent of the [[wp:Chevrolet Corvette|Chevrolet Corvette Coupe Export Model]].
 +
 
 +
Although the Infernus' design suggests a mid-engined layout in GTA III and GTA Liberty City Stories, its engine is visible under the front hood, possibly due to limitations of the game engine. The GTA Vice City and GTA Vice City Stories renditions reposition the engine to the back; the front compartment is revealed to be the trunk. The GTA Vice City Infernus, however, still emits steam, smoke, or fire from the front if damaged enough, again due to game limitations. The GTA San Andreas Infernus is front-engined by design, unlike its real-life counterpart, which uses a rear mid-engine layout.
 +
 
 +
In GTA San Andreas, the Infernus can be modded at any [[TransFender]] branch.

The [[Grand Theft Auto IV]] rendition, manufactured by [[Pegassi]], is largely based on the [[wp:Lamborghini Murciélago|Lamborghini Murciélago LP 640]] combined with the side panels and side windows of a Lamborghini Diablo and the rear fascia and venting off the hyper-exotic [[wp:Pagani Zonda#Zonda F|Pagani Zonda F]] and [[wp:Spyker C8|Spyker C8]], making the Infernus the only "exotic" car in GTA IV. The rear also bears similarities to that of the [[wp:Maserati MC12|Maserati MC12]]. However, the Infernus has 5 exhaust pipes instead of 4. The car features a mid engined configuration, allowing the car a favorable structural advantage over front-engine vehicles in frontal collisions. The Infernus, true to modern Lamborghinis, may or may not be equipped with a prominent rear wing. Also, the Infernus is capable of supporting a second body color for a stripe over the side skirts, even though it is not evident on the normally spawned Infernus. The Infernus in GTA IV is also the first car in the entire series to feature [[wp:scissor doors|scissor doors]], which allows the Infernus' doors to be self-closing by relying only on gravity to fall shut from its opened position; also featured are small, racing-style wing mirrors. The interior is fully finished in black leather and sports the same Lamborghini-style sport seats as the [[Pfister]] [[Comet]]. Sections of the dash and transmission tunnel are finished with carbon fiber accents.
 +
 
 +
The Infernus in [[Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars]] is only available without a spoiler, and features conventional doors. Players who pre-ordered the Nintendo DS version of GTA Chinatown Wars from Amazon are able to purchase a bulletproof Infernus at the [[Auto Merchant]] early in the game.
 +
 
 +
A promotional screenshot for GTA V depicts an Infernus similar to that in GTA IV, but featuring minor cosmetic modifications on the front bumper, such as slightly wider bumper grills along with a different rim design. The Infernus' new wheel design in GTA V is based on that of the [[wp:Lamborghini Reventón|Lamborghini Reventón]], a limited-production supercar based on the Murciélago.

== Performance ==
 
== Performance ==
The Infernus is extremely fast, but is susceptible to damage from high-speed impacts. Even impacts which do little damage can eject the driver through the windshield. Its handling remains similar between GTA III and GTA Vice City, but in San Andreas, although it is one of the fastest car in the game, (proven by game's data files, top speed 240 km/h), its cornering skills decrease considerably. Along with the [[Comet]], it is also one of the fastest cars in GTA IV, and a good racing car. According to game's data files, it has a top speed of 336 km/h (208 mph). The GTA IV version of the car is also mid-engined and four-wheel drive, like the real Murcielago.
+
=== GTA III — GTA Vice City Stories ===
 +
The Infernus' handling remains similar between GTA III and GTA Vice City, but in GTA San Andreas, despite sounding as though powered by either a V6 or a supercharged V8, the Infernus is the fastest car in the game, and its all-wheel-drive system allows for good frontal grip. However, due to its small wheels and wheel wells, understeer is present. One must take caution when braking as the wheels usually lock up during high-speed deceleration. Power distribution is smooth, but moderation must be used during cornering, due to having a high power output. Its suspension in GTA III, Vice City, Liberty City Stories, and Vice City Stories, however, is softer, allowing it to drive over curbs without jolting the car substantially or bottoming out. Additionally, the drag multiplier is only 1.00, making it the most aerodynamic sports/supercar in the game and explaining the high difficulty in handling the car.
  
If you are driving backwards, the Infernus will very easily turn with the smallest movement on the joystick. This can be useful after losing control of the vehicle. The Infernus has the same engine sound as the Comet and the [[Super GT]].
+
=== GTA IV — GTA V ===
 +
The Infernus in GTA IV is extremely fast and one of the fastest cars in this game, with a top speed of 224 mph (360 km/h), but is highly susceptible to deformation from high-speed impacts, and even impacts which do little damage can [[Windshield Ejection|eject the driver through the windshield]]. It is one of the fastest cars in GTA IV, and accordingly, it's a good racing car; it does, however, suffer from understeer in sharp turns at speed. It is a mid-engined all-wheel drive, like the real Murciélago; the mid-engine configuration makes it unlikely to break down or be set aflame from front-end collisions, another benefit when racing. While reversing, the Infernus can be easily turned 180 degrees with a mere nudge to the steering wheel, which can be useful after losing control of the vehicle. The Infernus has the same engine sound as the [[Comet]] and the [[Super GT]]. Also, it can backfire, much like the [[Banshee]], [[Buffalo]], [[F620]], [[Sultan RS]], and [[Bullet]].
  
==Location==
+
Due to its very low profile, it is possible for the Infernus in GTA IV to "scoop" some larger vehicles during collisions, causing them to either drive over the car or even launch off the Infernus in the case of head-on collisions. This seems to do only minor damage to the Infernus.
'''GTA Vice City'''
+
*Parked in front of the [[Vercetti Estate|mansion]] owned by [[Ricardo Diaz]], and later [[Tommy Vercetti]].
+
  
'''GTA San Andreas'''
+
Much like other renditions of the Infernus', the GTA Chinatown Wars Infernus boasts excellent acceleration and top speed and excellent brake response, but has a penchant for spinning out when cornering in higher speeds. While the car can soak up similar amounts of damage as most other vehicles, the tendency for vehicles to receive more damage from high speed crashes in GTA Chinatown Wars also makes the game's Infernus more likely to be destroyed faster.
*Found around [[The Strip]], [[Las Venturas]]
+
*Spawns mostly around [[San Fierro]]
+
*Spawns in [[Downtown Los Santos|Downtown]], [[Los Santos]].
+
  
'''GTA Liberty City Stories'''
+
The GTA V rendition of the Infernus performs virtually identical to the GTA IV rendition. However, its top speed has been downgraded to 209 mph (336 km/h), presumably in an attempt to keep the Infernus closer to the real-life Murciélago LP 640 in performance; the Murciélago LP 640 has a top speed of 211 mph (340 km/h), while its roadster variant (the LP 650-4) has the same top speed as the GTA V rendition of the Infernus: 209 mph (336 km/h). Its 0-60 mph (0-100 km/h) time is claimed to be 3.1 seconds, according to [[legendarymotorsport.net]]. Additionally, the Infernus has better braking and looser handling, making it easier to corner in the car. While having acceptable durability against head-on collisions and rear gunfire, it has disappointing deformation, meaning the wheels can make a positive camber very easily when having side-on crashes.
*Often spawns on [[Staunton Island]] and [[Shoreside Vale]]

*In the parking lot next to [[Staunton Island Safehouse (GTA LCS)|Staunton Island Safehouse]] in [[Newport]], Staunton Island.

+
; Pear-red/metallic-blue Infernus
*During mission [[Conduct Unbecoming]], two of the car are parked in front of the mansion.
+
In GTA III, [[D-Ice]] is known to own a uniquely-colored pear-red/metallic-blue Infernus. During the mission [[Rigged to Blow (GTA III)|Rigged to Blow]], [[Claude]] is instructed to drive the Infernus to a garage in [[Saint Mark's]], [[Portland]], to defuse a bomb while avoiding collisions that may trigger the bomb to destroy the car and [[Wasted|kill]] Claude if the car is damaged too much. This can be saved, but only if you fail the mission. This same Infernus also appears in the mission [[Grand Theft Auto (mission)|Grand Theft Auto]] for [[Kenji Kasen]],
*In the parking lot on the east of [[Bryan Forbes|Forbes's]] apartment.

'''GTA IV'''
+
; White Infernus
*In GTA IV, you receive one as a gift from [[Bernie Crane]] after completing all of his missions.
+
In GTA Vice City, [[Lance Vance]] is depicted to be driving a uniquely white Infernus, which can be seen and driven during "[[Back Alley Brawl]]" and "[[Guardian Angels]]". After obtaining [[Vercetti Estate|Diaz' mansion]] in [[Rub Out]], the regular Infernus parked next to the garage will permanently appear white, implying the car belongs to Lance. Given its permanence, the car is easily obtainable from this point on. After [[Keep Your Friends Close...|Lance's death]], the Infernus becomes owned by [[Tommy Vercetti]].
**Furthermore, it is believed that your first exposure to the [[Infernus]] is after you complete all of Bernie's missions. But if you compete in Brucie's races early on, it is likely that you will see at least one of them. You can kill the driver and steal it but you will cancel the race and your favour with Brucie will go down.
+
*In [[Multiplayer in GTA IV|GTA IV Multiplayer]] it can be seen driving around the streets of [[Liberty City in GTA IV|Liberty City]].
+
*[[Stevie]] will send you a message that he requires an Infernus to be delivered in his [[Stevie's Car Thefts|garage]]. If you find it, don't get in yet. Wait for one of the Infernus cars to appear. If you're lucky, you'll see one of them driving around, giving you a chance to steal it and store it in your safehouse.
+
*If you drive an NRG-900 around, especially in and around Star Junction, an Infernus should spawn eventually. To get an NRG-900, just go to [[Westdyke Autos]], in Alderney.

; Orange/Yellow Infernus
*Color
+
In GTA IV, an Infernus previously owned by [[Bryce Dawkins]] is given to the player by [[Bernie Crane]] after completing his mission [[Buoys Ahoy]]. The car uniquely sports stripes on the sideskirt and a bright orange or yellow body color which does not appear on any other Infernus, but is otherwise identical to a regular Infernus, being available with or without a spoiler.

+
Dawkins' Infernus is also featured in [[The Lost and Damned]] during [[Knowing Me, Knowing You]], and can be obtained by parking it at a GTA IV or The Lost and Damned safehouse, driving away from it and blowing yourself up with a [[Pipe Bomb]] or [[grenade]], thereby failing the mission but retaining the car at the safehouse. Note that it is not necessary to [[Wasted|kill yourself]] and waste money when you can just take the car to a parking space and wait for the time to run out; Johnny will just simply get out (if you attempt to enter the car, it will be locked). Get into another car and go around the block. When you come back, the Infernus will still be there, unlocked for you.

; Golden Infernus
Image:Infernus-lcs.jpg|The Infernus in [[Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories]].
+
In GTA IV, [[Stevie]] will send you a message saying that he requires an Infernus parked near the Soldiers Memorial in [[Downtown Broker]], and can be specifically found parked next to the Pizza Salad Restaurant. After acquiring the car, the player is required to deliver the car to his [[Stevie's Car Thefts|garage]]. This Infernus always has a unique gold paintjob. Like all of Stevie's desired cars, it will respawn if taken away, and thus can be "duplicated". Find the Infernus, park it at a safehouse, then return to its original location; a new Infernus will be there, and this can be delivered to Stevie instead.

* Spawns in the [[Francis International Airport in GTA III Era|Francis International Airport]] parking lot near the entrance.
 +
 
 +
; GTA Vice City
 +
* Parked in front of the [[Vercetti Estate|mansion]] owned by [[Ricardo Diaz]], and later Tommy Vercetti. Prior to the mansion's [[Rub Out|change of hand]], the Infernus is featured with a conventional range of body colors. Thereafter, the car appears with a unique white body color, implying it is owned by Lance Vance (and Tommy Vercetti, after ''Keep your friends close...'').
 +
* On a platform in [[North Point Mall]]. The car is there as part of a competition, but the competition cannot be entered.
 +
* Usually spawns around Vice City in the more affluent areas, such as Starfish Island.
 +
 
 +
; GTA San Andreas
 +
* May appear in traffic under the following conditions:
 +
** While riding a [[PCJ-600]] in [[Rodeo]], [[Los Santos in GTA III Era|Los Santos]], ([[Days of the Week|Wednesday]]).
 +
** While driving a [[Rumpo]] in [[Rodeo]]/[[Santa Maria Beach]], Los Santos ([[Days of the Week|Friday]]), or a [[Euros]] on [[The Strip]], [[Las Venturas]] (Friday).

 +
* An [[Special Vehicles|explosionproof]] one is obtainable from the mission [[Accidents Will Happen]]. Fail the mission to obtain it.
 +
 
 +
; GTA IV
 +
Like various sports/supercars in the game, the Infernus is significantly rare in single player as it does not normally spawn in traffic at all. It can only be obtained in specific missions and/or pastimes.
 +
* An Infernus can be encountered relatively early on if one spawns as a competitor (or in traffic) during Brucie's street races. These can be stolen, although killing an opponent and stealing their car will forfeit the race, lowering Brucie's approval rating.
 +
* As with most cars, Infernus' will spawn more readily once the player is already driving one. Approaching the [[South Bohan safehouse]] from the southern bridge may be a good way to spawn parked Infernuses near a convenient storing place.
 +
* In [[Multiplayer in GTA IV|GTA IV Multiplayer]] it is quite common, and can be seen driving around the streets of [[Liberty City in GTA IV|Liberty City]].
 +
* As noted above, it is relatively easy to obtain an Infernus during [[Stevie's Car Thefts]], as another Infernus will automatically spawn in the same location as the target car if you drive out of the vicinity.
 +
* [[Bernie Crane]] gives Niko his Infernus as a gift after the mission [[Buoys Ahoy]].
 +
 
 +
; The Lost and Damned
 +
* The only way to find an Infernus is during the previously mentioned mission [[Knowing Me, Knowing You]].
 +
 
 +
; The Ballad of Gay Tony
 +
* In keeping with the game's high-flying theme, the Infernus is made more common in [[The Ballad of Gay Tony]] and tends to spawn around [[Star Junction]], [[Westminster]], and other parts of central [[Algonquin]], including [[The Meat Quarter]], [[Lower Easton]], and [[Suffolk]].
 +
* Can sometimes be seen in the small parking lot on Gavelston Ave. and Hell Gate, [[Purgatory]], Algonquin. Better chance to spawn when driving another Infernus.
 +
 
 +
; GTA Chinatown Wars
 +
* The car can be obtained from many locations, though seems to be popular in [[Algonquin]].
 +
* Parked on the driveway of [[Faustin's Mansion]] in [[Beachgate]], [[Broker]].
 +
 
 +
; GTA V
 +
* Can be purchased from [[southernsanandreassuperautos.com]] for [[Money|$]]440,000.

* "Infernus" means "being underneath" and is often translated as "Hell" or "inferno" in Latin. The name may also refer to how the engine of the Infernus is located in the middle of the car or "being underneath" the driver. Also, it is a direct reference to "Diablo" (meaning "devil" in Spanish), which is the name of the Lamborghini car the Infernus in GTA III and Liberty City Stories is primarily based upon.

Official Vice City Bureau of Investigation file description, GTA Vice City.

The Infernus is a supercar that was first introduced in Grand Theft Auto III and has appeared in eight additional Grand Theft Auto titles since (if counting Grand Theft Auto Online).

Design

3D Universe

Between Grand Theft Auto III and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, the Infernus appeared in three different forms, each illustrating the car as a sleek, low-profile supercar comparable to the Cheetah.

Although the Infernus' design suggests a mid-engined layout in GTA III and GTA Liberty City Stories, its engine is visible under the front hood, possibly due to limitations of the game engine. The GTA Vice City and GTA Vice City Stories renditions reposition the engine to the back; the front compartment is revealed to be the trunk. The GTA Vice City Infernus, however, still emits steam, smoke, or fire from the front if damaged enough, again due to game limitations. The GTA San Andreas Infernus is front-engined by design, unlike its real-life counterpart, which uses a rear mid-engine layout.

In GTA San Andreas, the Infernus can be modded at any TransFender branch.

HD Universe

The Grand Theft Auto IV rendition, manufactured by Pegassi, is largely based on the Lamborghini Murciélago LP 640 combined with the side panels and side windows of a Lamborghini Diablo and the rear fascia and venting off the hyper-exotic Pagani Zonda F and Spyker C8, making the Infernus the only "exotic" car in GTA IV. The rear also bears similarities to that of the Maserati MC12. However, the Infernus has 5 exhaust pipes instead of 4. The car features a mid engined configuration, allowing the car a favorable structural advantage over front-engine vehicles in frontal collisions. The Infernus, true to modern Lamborghinis, may or may not be equipped with a prominent rear wing. Also, the Infernus is capable of supporting a second body color for a stripe over the side skirts, even though it is not evident on the normally spawned Infernus. The Infernus in GTA IV is also the first car in the entire series to feature scissor doors, which allows the Infernus' doors to be self-closing by relying only on gravity to fall shut from its opened position; also featured are small, racing-style wing mirrors. The interior is fully finished in black leather and sports the same Lamborghini-style sport seats as the Pfister Comet. Sections of the dash and transmission tunnel are finished with carbon fiber accents.

The Infernus in Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars is only available without a spoiler, and features conventional doors. Players who pre-ordered the Nintendo DS version of GTA Chinatown Wars from Amazon are able to purchase a bulletproof Infernus at the Auto Merchant early in the game.

A promotional screenshot for GTA V depicts an Infernus similar to that in GTA IV, but featuring minor cosmetic modifications on the front bumper, such as slightly wider bumper grills along with a different rim design. The Infernus' new wheel design in GTA V is based on that of the Lamborghini Reventón, a limited-production supercar based on the Murciélago.

Performance

GTA III — GTA Vice City Stories

The Infernus' handling remains similar between GTA III and GTA Vice City, but in GTA San Andreas, despite sounding as though powered by either a V6 or a supercharged V8, the Infernus is the fastest car in the game, and its all-wheel-drive system allows for good frontal grip. However, due to its small wheels and wheel wells, understeer is present. One must take caution when braking as the wheels usually lock up during high-speed deceleration. Power distribution is smooth, but moderation must be used during cornering, due to having a high power output. Its suspension in GTA III, Vice City, Liberty City Stories, and Vice City Stories, however, is softer, allowing it to drive over curbs without jolting the car substantially or bottoming out. Additionally, the drag multiplier is only 1.00, making it the most aerodynamic sports/supercar in the game and explaining the high difficulty in handling the car.

GTA IV — GTA V

The Infernus in GTA IV is extremely fast and one of the fastest cars in this game, with a top speed of 224 mph (360 km/h), but is highly susceptible to deformation from high-speed impacts, and even impacts which do little damage can eject the driver through the windshield. It is one of the fastest cars in GTA IV, and accordingly, it's a good racing car; it does, however, suffer from understeer in sharp turns at speed. It is a mid-engined all-wheel drive, like the real Murciélago; the mid-engine configuration makes it unlikely to break down or be set aflame from front-end collisions, another benefit when racing. While reversing, the Infernus can be easily turned 180 degrees with a mere nudge to the steering wheel, which can be useful after losing control of the vehicle. The Infernus has the same engine sound as the Comet and the Super GT. Also, it can backfire, much like the Banshee, Buffalo, F620, Sultan RS, and Bullet.

Due to its very low profile, it is possible for the Infernus in GTA IV to "scoop" some larger vehicles during collisions, causing them to either drive over the car or even launch off the Infernus in the case of head-on collisions. This seems to do only minor damage to the Infernus.

Much like other renditions of the Infernus', the GTA Chinatown Wars Infernus boasts excellent acceleration and top speed and excellent brake response, but has a penchant for spinning out when cornering in higher speeds. While the car can soak up similar amounts of damage as most other vehicles, the tendency for vehicles to receive more damage from high speed crashes in GTA Chinatown Wars also makes the game's Infernus more likely to be destroyed faster.

The GTA V rendition of the Infernus performs virtually identical to the GTA IV rendition. However, its top speed has been downgraded to 209 mph (336 km/h), presumably in an attempt to keep the Infernus closer to the real-life Murciélago LP 640 in performance; the Murciélago LP 640 has a top speed of 211 mph (340 km/h), while its roadster variant (the LP 650-4) has the same top speed as the GTA V rendition of the Infernus: 209 mph (336 km/h). Its 0-60 mph (0-100 km/h) time is claimed to be 3.1 seconds, according to legendarymotorsport.net. Additionally, the Infernus has better braking and looser handling, making it easier to corner in the car. While having acceptable durability against head-on collisions and rear gunfire, it has disappointing deformation, meaning the wheels can make a positive camber very easily when having side-on crashes.

Variants with unique colors

Pear-red/metallic-blue Infernus

In GTA III, D-Ice is known to own a uniquely-colored pear-red/metallic-blue Infernus. During the mission Rigged to Blow, Claude is instructed to drive the Infernus to a garage in Saint Mark's, Portland, to defuse a bomb while avoiding collisions that may trigger the bomb to destroy the car and kill Claude if the car is damaged too much. This can be saved, but only if you fail the mission. This same Infernus also appears in the mission Grand Theft Auto for Kenji Kasen,

White Infernus

In GTA Vice City, Lance Vance is depicted to be driving a uniquely white Infernus, which can be seen and driven during "Back Alley Brawl" and "Guardian Angels". After obtaining Diaz' mansion in Rub Out, the regular Infernus parked next to the garage will permanently appear white, implying the car belongs to Lance. Given its permanence, the car is easily obtainable from this point on. After Lance's death, the Infernus becomes owned by Tommy Vercetti.

Orange/Yellow Infernus

In GTA IV, an Infernus previously owned by Bryce Dawkins is given to the player by Bernie Crane after completing his mission Buoys Ahoy. The car uniquely sports stripes on the sideskirt and a bright orange or yellow body color which does not appear on any other Infernus, but is otherwise identical to a regular Infernus, being available with or without a spoiler.

Dawkins' Infernus is also featured in The Lost and Damned during Knowing Me, Knowing You, and can be obtained by parking it at a GTA IV or The Lost and Damned safehouse, driving away from it and blowing yourself up with a Pipe Bomb or grenade, thereby failing the mission but retaining the car at the safehouse. Note that it is not necessary to kill yourself and waste money when you can just take the car to a parking space and wait for the time to run out; Johnny will just simply get out (if you attempt to enter the car, it will be locked). Get into another car and go around the block. When you come back, the Infernus will still be there, unlocked for you.

Golden Infernus

In GTA IV, Stevie will send you a message saying that he requires an Infernus parked near the Soldiers Memorial in Downtown Broker, and can be specifically found parked next to the Pizza Salad Restaurant. After acquiring the car, the player is required to deliver the car to his garage. This Infernus always has a unique gold paintjob. Like all of Stevie's desired cars, it will respawn if taken away, and thus can be "duplicated". Find the Infernus, park it at a safehouse, then return to its original location; a new Infernus will be there, and this can be delivered to Stevie instead.

The golden Infernus' color is very similar to the golden colors of a "gold" Ruiner, the Ruiner's color scheme being more easily available as one of its many conventional color schemes.

Notable owners

Locations

GTA III
GTA Vice City
  • Parked in front of the mansion owned by Ricardo Diaz, and later Tommy Vercetti. Prior to the mansion's change of hand, the Infernus is featured with a conventional range of body colors. Thereafter, the car appears with a unique white body color, implying it is owned by Lance Vance (and Tommy Vercetti, after Keep your friends close...).
  • On a platform in North Point Mall. The car is there as part of a competition, but the competition cannot be entered.
  • Usually spawns around Vice City in the more affluent areas, such as Starfish Island.
GTA San Andreas
GTA Liberty City Stories
GTA Vice City Stories
GTA IV

Like various sports/supercars in the game, the Infernus is significantly rare in single player as it does not normally spawn in traffic at all. It can only be obtained in specific missions and/or pastimes.

  • An Infernus can be encountered relatively early on if one spawns as a competitor (or in traffic) during Brucie's street races. These can be stolen, although killing an opponent and stealing their car will forfeit the race, lowering Brucie's approval rating.
  • As with most cars, Infernus' will spawn more readily once the player is already driving one. Approaching the South Bohan safehouse from the southern bridge may be a good way to spawn parked Infernuses near a convenient storing place.
  • In GTA IV Multiplayer it is quite common, and can be seen driving around the streets of Liberty City.
  • As noted above, it is relatively easy to obtain an Infernus during Stevie's Car Thefts, as another Infernus will automatically spawn in the same location as the target car if you drive out of the vicinity.
  • Bernie Crane gives Niko his Infernus as a gift after the mission Buoys Ahoy.
The Lost and Damned
The Ballad of Gay Tony
GTA Chinatown Wars
GTA V
GTA Online
  • Can be purchased from Legendarymotorsport.net for $440,000.
  • Rarely found roaming around Rockford Hills and Burton.
