- "This isn't just a mid-life crisis."
- ―Rockstar Newswire description.
The Comet Retro Custom is heavily based on the Ruf Turbo R, while also taking influence from the 1980s Porsche 911S. The curving of the rear and shape of the rear lights may also be based on the Porsche 928.
The Comet Retro Custom is a retro body-kitted variant of the Comet, which shares similar design cues with the Grand Theft Auto: Vice City rendition of the aforementioned car, albeit retaining some aspects from the HD Universe versions, such as the solid roof and relatively short length.
The front of the car is largely predominated by the custom bumper, which features a bolt-on plastic extension, a mesh intake on the centre and an upper section with a plastic fitting spanning the body of the car. Right beside the central intake, there is a set of dual circular fog lamps, which are located behind glass casings and featuring plastic trim around the outer lamps and casings. Next to the fog lamps and around the front quarters of the car, there is a set of plastic fins/canards curved upwards. The upper area consists of the main circular headlamps with plastic surroundings, as well as the front boot bearing the Pfister logo, that also reveals a carpeted compartment with a strut brace over it.
The sides of the car are mostly dominated by the bolt-on wide fender arches, together with bolt-on plastic skirts at the bottom and plastic fittings around the car's wide arches. The greenhouse area is relatively similar to the Comet, having plastic trim around the windows and body-coloured mirror shells, but the windows appear to be slightly taller and the rear-quarter windows being slightly shorter.
The rear of the car features a small engine compartment with a ducktail spoiler and the corresponding badges on a black vented section of the engine compartment, while the tail lamps can be seen on the outer edges, being stretched and slightly smaller variations of the Comet's. The bumper is relatively bulky and has a license plate on the centre and two exhaust tubes below it.
The interior of the car shares the same textures and dials as the standard Comet, but has a shorter steering column, different steering wheel, standard seats and inclined central console, where the radio set and the gear stick are located. The interior can be also modified to feature numerous race-type components and a digital display in place of the standard analog dials, in a similar manner to vehicles like the RE-7B and the ETR1.
The primary colour of the car is applied on the body and the stitching, while the secondary colour is applied in the form of side stripes near the skirts, the front boot, the cabin and part of the rear engine compartment. The vehicle also has a trim colour for the doors and the seats, along with a dial colour. The stock rims are a variant of the "Ruff Weld" sport rims available at Los Santos Customs, wrapped in Atomic low-profile tyres with detailed tread pattern, similar to the Tropos Rallye and Omnis. These rims can also support a dedicated colour, although only models generated in the Content Creator may have a colour. Additionally, the rear wheels are wider.

Similar to the relationship between the Elegy RH8 and Elegy Retro Custom, the Comet Retro Custom becomes slightly slower after the conversion at Benny's Original Motor Works. Many features are retained from the standard Comet, including its wheelspin and generally loose handling. The vehicle is hard to handle, as hard turns often cause the back end to spin out. The acceleration is delayed due to wheelspin off the line, while the top speed is not outstanding. The Comet Retro Custom is not very suitable for competitive racing due to its lacking performance; however it is still generally decent in the Sports class.
Contrary to the Comet's single cam V8, the Comet Retro Custom sports a V6 engine with a similar layout of that of the Comet's one. It also has two radiators and the engine's set of timing belt and pulleys, very similar to that of the Fränken Stange. The Comet's engine and exhaust tips also shake around inside the engine bay when the player starts/revs the engine. The engine sound is similar to that of the Comet, albeit with a lower pitch and louder revving sound.

Grand Theft Auto Online
- Several liveries include multiple conflicting brands, for example iFruit and Facade both appearing on the Retro Racer livery and Xero and Globe Oil both appearing on the Xero Gas livery.
- The Globe Oil livery is based on the Martini Porsche 911 RSR.
- The Xero Gas livery is based on the Navision Porsche 911 GT2.
- The advertisement it is seen in parodies the styling of actual Porsche ads, even going far enough to use a similar font.
- The default radio station for the Comet Retro Custom is Non-Stop-Pop FM.
- With the correct modifications, one can modify the car to either resemble Tatsuya Shima's Blackbird from the anime and manga series Wangan Midnight, or its real-life inspiration, the Yoshida Specials Porsche 930.
- Despite the vehicle being rear wheel drive, the underside features a driveshaft connected to the front ones, as if were all whell drive. This is possibly due to reused assets with the standard Comet, which also has this issue.
- Despite having a rear license plate, there is no plate option in mod shops.
- With the correct modifications, one can modify the car to resemble the RWB Porsche 911 993.
- The driver-side window has a minor modelling issue, as part of the glass appears to be dented.
- Several liveries are off-center, which can be seen from the hood. In addition, some liveries are aparallel, for example the Meinmacht livery, which is higher on one side.
- Elegy Retro Custom - Another "retro" Benny's vehicle added in the Import/Export update for Grand Theft Auto Online.
- Comet Safari - Off-road derivative added in the Doomsday Heist update.
