The Vigero essentially resembles a 1969 Chevrolet Camaro with a rear seemingly inspired by a 1970 or 1971 Plymouth Barracuda. It looks like a 1969 Camaro because of the front bumper, wheel arch shapes, and boxier rear - as opposed to 1967/1968 Camaros - but it lacks the heavily creased lines with softer lines and a less pointed grille like the '67/'68 Camaros; the double headlight design may be derived from numerous cars or may just be invented, but it seems to emulate a 1967 or '68 Pontiac Firebird because of the chassis' similarity to a Camaro. All Vigeros bear cowl induction hoods and "Super Sport" upholstery with badging on the sides, which is further evidence the car is based on a Camaro.
The Vigero may also appear "beater" form, which have a ratty looking ripped up interior, broken windows, faded or rusting exterior sometimes with different colored quarter panels, missing or dented quarter panels and dented doors, damaged rusty bumpers (that sometimes would be already dangling by one connector), duct tape around the rear windows, and backfires. The "rusty" Vigero also has only two functioning headlights (which sometimes would be sagging out of its fittings due to age), the other two are broken (giving it a more Camaro-like look). The beater variants also feature interior designs copied from that of the Dukes (with Imponte writings on seats), as opposed to the regular Vigero's own design.
All Vigeros, including the beater versions, come with horn alarms. The beater versions also lack windows, so the alarm will trigger when the doors are opened.
Like any other muscle car, its engine is very powerful. Unfortunately, the Vigero's skinny rear tires and stiff suspension don't help when launching the car (such as when you need to get away in a hurry) However, the Vigero stays much flatter through the corners than the Sabre GT and Dukes, due to its smaller size, and is less prone to understeer than the Sabre GT. Like other beaters in the game, the beater variants of the Vigero suffer from degraded performance and handling, having a top speed of 130 km/h (81 mph), while the standard Vigero can reach 145 km/H (90 mph).
- In Grand Theft Auto IV, the default radio station in the Vigero is Liberty Rock Radio 97.8.
- Due to the fact that the 'Beater' Vigero variants have no side windows, the window-smashing animation in car theft is bypassed.
