The Annis Pinnacle is a 4-door sedan in Grand Theft Auto IV.


The Pinnacle is based on the sixth generation Nissan Maxima. The back end looks similar to a Ford Five Hundred, as does the front end, albeit with differently-shaped headlights. the area around the back license plate is arranged similarly to those on many older Infinitis and Mitsubishis. The name "Pinnacle" may be a play on "Maxima", as both of the names suggest an uppermost extreme.


Although the Pinnacle has the same engine sound as the Feltzer, it employs a less powerful 3.5L V6 engine, coupled to a 5 speed gearbox in a RWD layout. The engine pulls strongly, launching the vehicle off the line quickly and giving it an acceptable top speed. Braking is adequate but not great, often requiring great distances to come to a complete halt; ABS is not available on the Pinnacle. The suspension is firm, but due to its shallow maximum wheel angle, the Pinnacle corners very poorly even at slow speeds. Crash deformation is poor, causing the front tire rods to fail after only a few frontal impacts; engine build quality is also poor, with the Pinnacle failing after only a few minor collisions.
