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 sports car that was first introduced in [[Grand Theft Auto III]] and has appeared in seven additional [[Grand Theft Auto]] titles since.
  
 
== 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]].

{{quote|"Extremely expensive. How can we expense one of these? Only those [[Vice Squad|idiots undercover]] get to drive these."<br>- Official [[Vice City Bureau of Investigation]] file description, GTA Vice City.}}
  
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 had appeared in three different forms, each illustrating the car as a sleek, low-profile sports car 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 incorporating elements of a [[wp:Lamborghini Diablo|Lamborghini Diablo]]. 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 LP500]], but lacks the characteristic 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 LP500, featuring a sleeker and more angular frontage, blocky lights and a heightened spoiler.
 +
* In [[Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas]], the Infernus nameplate loses the Lamborghini motif, and is based on a [[wp:Honda NSX|Honda/Acura NSX]], (most likely the Acura model, as this was exported to North America).
 +
 
 +
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 smoke from the front if moderately damaged. The GTA San Andreas Infernus is front-engined by design.
 +
 
 +
In GTA San Andreas, the Infernus can be modded at any [[TransFender]] branch.

=== GTA IV — GTA V ===
 +
The [[Grand Theft Auto IV]] rendition, manufactured by [[Pegassi]], is largely based on the [[wp:Lamborghini Murciélago|Lamborghini Murciélago LP 640-4]] combined with the rear fascia and venting off the hyper-exotic [[wp:Pagani Zonda|Pagani Zonda F]]; making the Infernus the only "exotic" car in GTA IV. 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 Reventon|Lamborghini Reventon]], a conceptual car 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 to GTA Vice City and GTA Liberty City Stories to GTA Vice City Stories, featuring some of the best accelerating power and top speeds (240 km/h according to the handling.cfg file in all games) among all sports cars in the games, but having slight susceptibility to spinouts when brakes are applied around corners than the [[Cheetah]] (due to its rear wheel drive and, possibly, a longer wheelbase). Infernus' in the games also feature softer suspensions, allowing it to drive over curbs without jolting the car substantially or bottoming out.
  
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]].
+
In GTA San Andreas, the Infernus remains the fastest car in the game and features an all-wheel drive system that gives the car better frontal grip. However, its cornering ability is considerably inferior due to higher susceptibility to spins, indicating uneven front-to-rear weight distribution. The Infernus' suspension in the game is also stiffer, making the car less suitable for bumpy driving.
  
==Location==
+
=== GTA IV — GTA Chinatown Wars ===
'''GTA Vice City'''
+
The Infernus in GTA IV is extremely fast and the fourth-fastest (with a top speed of 360 km/h / 224 mph) car in this game 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]].
*Parked in front of the [[Vercetti Estate|mansion]] owned by [[Ricardo Diaz]], and later [[Tommy Vercetti]].
+
  
'''GTA San Andreas'''
+
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.
*Found around [[The Strip]], [[Las Venturas]]
+
*Spawns mostly around [[San Fierro]]
+
*Spawns in [[Downtown Los Santos|Downtown]], [[Los Santos]].
+
  
'''GTA Liberty City Stories'''
+
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.
*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.
+
  
'''GTA Vice City Stories'''
+
== Variants with unique colors ==
*In front of a mansion in the most northwest part of [[Starfish Island]].
+
;White Infernus
*During mission [[Conduct Unbecoming]], two of the car are parked in front of the mansion.
+
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's 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.
*In the parking lot on the east of [[Bryan Forbes|Forbes's]] apartment.
+
*In [[Lance Vance|Lance's]] apartment in [[Ocean Beach]].
+
*Parked along [[Ocean Drive]], Ocean Beach.
+
  
'''GTA IV'''
+
;Orange/Yellow Infernus
*In GTA IV, you receive one as a gift from [[Bernie Crane]] after completing all of his missions.
+
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.
**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.
+
  
==Car Modification (GTA San Andreas)==
+
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
<center>
+
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.

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.

== Trivia ==
 +
* The radio of the Infernus set those default stations in the following games:
 +
** GTA San Andreas: [[Radio Los Santos]].
 +
** GTA IV: [[The Vibe 98.8]].
 +
* The Infernus can be sold for $10,000 at [[S&M Auto Sales]] in GTA IV after completing [[Stevie's Car Thefts]].
 +
* If the player takes an Infernus to a [[Spray Shop|spray shop]] too many times in GTA IV, it will turn a unique, dark green color. This color will then be permanent, and no amount of subsequent resprays will change it. This is most likely a glitch, as almost every other car in the game will continually cycle through its available colors each time you visit a spray shop. The exceptions are the [[Buffalo]] from [[The Ballad of Gay Tony]], the [[Dukes (car)|Dukes]] and the [[PMP 600]], which all suffer from similar glitches.
 +
* The Infernus in GTA IV has no front turning lights nor a trunk. The absence of a trunk is seen after some frontal crashes, but Infernus' with front indicators can be seen on the TV commercials of "I'm Rich".
 +
* The Infernus is specified in GTA IV to be the most expensive drivable car with a price tag of $150,000, followed by the [[Turismo]] with a value of $130,000 and the [[Super GT]] valued at $110,000.
 +
[[Image:Infernus-GTACW-papercraft.jpg|255px|thumb|right|A rendering of the papercraft Infernus from the GTA Chinatown Wars section of the [[Rockstar Games Social Club]].]]
 +
* Under the "[[Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars|GTA Chinatown Wars]]" section of the [[Rockstar Games Social Club]] website, members may download a printable papercraft model of the Infernus. The vehicle's design is more rooted to the GTA IV rendition, and is obviously more detailed than the GTA Chinatown Wars rendition.
 +
* Despite its high value and appointments, Niko's girlfriends in GTA IV are generally unimpressed with the car, with some noting that it doesn't suit Niko's style (even though they tend to approve of the similar [[Turismo]]).
 +
 
 +
== Notable owners ==
 +
* [[Lance Vance]]
 +
* [[B Dup]]
 +
* [[Bryce Dawkins]] / [[Bernie Crane]] (After [[Buoys Ahoy]] it belongs to [[Niko Bellic]]).
 +
* [[Stevie]].
 +
* [[Niko Bellic]]
 +
* [[Tony McTony]]
 +
 
 +
==Locations==
 +
;GTA III
 +
* One can easily be obtained during the mission "[[Grand Theft Auto (mission)|Grand Theft Auto]]".
 +
* Normally spawned on the streets in [[Staunton Island]] and [[Shoreside Vale]], similar to other sports cars.
 +
* 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.
 +
* 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).
 +
** While driving an [[Elegy]] in [[Downtown San Fierro|Downtown]], [[San Fierro]] ([[Days of the Week|Sunday]]).
 +
** In [[Downtown Los Santos in GTA III Era|Downtown]], Los Santos.
 +
** While driving a [[Perennial]] in [[Rodeo]], Los Santos.
 +
** In [[Paradiso]], San Fierro.
 +
** At the [[Bayside Marina]] in [[Tierra Robada]].
 +
** Around [[The Strip]], [[Las Venturas]]
 +
** Parked by the most north eastern house in [[Paradiso]], [[San Fierro]]. (Only when wanted for export).
 +
** For some reason may appear on [[Days of the Week|Saturday]] in Angel Pine while on foot.
 +
 
 +
;GTA Liberty City Stories
 +
* Often spawns on [[Staunton Island]] and [[Shoreside Vale]].
 +
* In the parking lot at [[Francis International Airport in GTA III Era|Francis International Airport]] close to the entrance.
 +
* In the [[Newport Multistory Car Park]].
 +
 
 +
;GTA Vice City Stories
 +
* In front of a mansion in the most northwest part of [[Starfish Island]].
 +
* In the parking lot on the east of [[Bryan Forbes|Forbes']] apartment.
 +
* Inside the garage at [[Lance Vance|Lance's]] apartment in [[Ocean Beach]].
 +
* Parked along [[Ocean Drive]], Ocean Beach.
 +
* Driveway of a mansion near [[Shady Palms Hospital]], [[Vice Point]].
 +
* An [[Special Vehicles|explosionproof]] one is obtainable from the mission "[[Accidents Will Happen]]". Fail the mission to obtain it.
 +
 
 +
;GTA IV
 +
Like various sports car 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]].
 +
 
 +
== See also ==
 +
* [[Counthash]] and [[Miara]], vehicles in GTA 1 and GTA 2 also based on Lamborghini models.

The Infernus is a sports car that was first introduced in Grand Theft Auto III and has appeared in seven additional Grand Theft Auto titles since.

Design

GTA III — GTA Vice City Stories

"Extremely expensive. How can we expense one of these? Only those idiots undercover get to drive these."
- Official Vice City Bureau of Investigation file description, GTA Vice City.


Between Grand Theft Auto III and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, the Infernus had appeared in three different forms, each illustrating the car as a sleek, low-profile sports car 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 smoke from the front if moderately damaged. The GTA San Andreas Infernus is front-engined by design.

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

GTA IV — GTA V

The Grand Theft Auto IV rendition, manufactured by Pegassi, is largely based on the Lamborghini Murciélago LP 640-4 combined with the rear fascia and venting off the hyper-exotic Pagani Zonda F; making the Infernus the only "exotic" car in GTA IV. 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 Reventon, a conceptual car based on the Murciélago.

Performance

GTA III — GTA Vice City Stories

The Infernus' handling remains similar between GTA III to GTA Vice City and GTA Liberty City Stories to GTA Vice City Stories, featuring some of the best accelerating power and top speeds (240 km/h according to the handling.cfg file in all games) among all sports cars in the games, but having slight susceptibility to spinouts when brakes are applied around corners than the Cheetah (due to its rear wheel drive and, possibly, a longer wheelbase). Infernus' in the games also feature softer suspensions, allowing it to drive over curbs without jolting the car substantially or bottoming out.

In GTA San Andreas, the Infernus remains the fastest car in the game and features an all-wheel drive system that gives the car better frontal grip. However, its cornering ability is considerably inferior due to higher susceptibility to spins, indicating uneven front-to-rear weight distribution. The Infernus' suspension in the game is also stiffer, making the car less suitable for bumpy driving.

GTA IV — GTA Chinatown Wars

The Infernus in GTA IV is extremely fast and the fourth-fastest (with a top speed of 360 km/h / 224 mph) car in this game 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.

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.

Variants with unique colors

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's 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.

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.

Trivia

  • The radio of the Infernus set those default stations in the following games:
  • The Infernus can be sold for $10,000 at S&M Auto Sales in GTA IV after completing Stevie's Car Thefts.
  • If the player takes an Infernus to a spray shop too many times in GTA IV, it will turn a unique, dark green color. This color will then be permanent, and no amount of subsequent resprays will change it. This is most likely a glitch, as almost every other car in the game will continually cycle through its available colors each time you visit a spray shop. The exceptions are the Buffalo from The Ballad of Gay Tony, the Dukes and the PMP 600, which all suffer from similar glitches.
  • The Infernus in GTA IV has no front turning lights nor a trunk. The absence of a trunk is seen after some frontal crashes, but Infernus' with front indicators can be seen on the TV commercials of "I'm Rich".
  • The Infernus is specified in GTA IV to be the most expensive drivable car with a price tag of $150,000, followed by the Turismo with a value of $130,000 and the Super GT valued at $110,000.

  • Under the "GTA Chinatown Wars" section of the Rockstar Games Social Club website, members may download a printable papercraft model of the Infernus. The vehicle's design is more rooted to the GTA IV rendition, and is obviously more detailed than the GTA Chinatown Wars rendition.
  • Despite its high value and appointments, Niko's girlfriends in GTA IV are generally unimpressed with the car, with some noting that it doesn't suit Niko's style (even though they tend to approve of the similar Turismo).

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.
  • 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 IV

Like various sports car 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.
