For the sports car in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, see Elegy.

Born in the fires of Mt. Fuji and tested on some German toll road, you can finally legally own this legendary supercar without the fear of having your door kicked in by the FIB because they'd rather crush import cars than catch terrorists.
Legendary Motorsport description.

The Annis Elegy RH8 is a sports car featured in Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online.


Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online

The Elegy RH8 is prominently based on the 2011 Nissan GT-R (R35), seen in the greenhouse area, front quarter, rear bumper area, natural rear wing and wheels. The front bumper and headlights are reminiscent to that of the Infiniti G37 Coupe, while the rear taillights are similar to the Infiniti G35 Coupe. Additionally, the rear end seems to be inspired by the FT-86 Concept.

The Elegy RH8 is designed as a two-door sports car with a sleek appearance, appearing to have a Carbon-fibre splitter at the bottom and inserts around the three front intakes, which span almost the whole width of the car. On the upper area, there is a small grille with the Annis badge centralized on the car and L-shaped headlamp housings, each one containing circular lamps with square-shaped turn signals. Both the grille and the headlamp housings have a plastic trim surrounding them, and the bonnet features a prominent elevation on the centre with slanted sections near the headlamps, which opens to reveal a triangular strut brace over the engine bay.

The sides of the car feature inset panellings around the doors, with slanted sections on the front fenders and leading to the rear fender vents, directing air flow to the rear brakes. There is a set of carbon-fibre side skirts located at the bottom, with concave formations below the doors. The greenhouse area makes use of plastic finishing around the windows, the A-pillars and the seprataion of the rear-quarter windows. A set of mirror wings can be seen mounted on the doors, along with "RH8" badges on the front fenders and an "ELEGY" badge on the rear window, just near the rood panel.

On the rear end, there is a slanted wall with a lip on the upper side, with "ELEGY" embossed on the centre of the wall and a small "Annis" badge above. There is a permanent red strip around the upper area, with a thinner strip on the centre and twin red circular lamps on either side. The bumper consists of a body-coloured section holding the license plate and a carbon-fibre diffuser with a rectangular reverse light on the centre and two housings for the dual exhaust tubes. The car may spawn with or without a spoiler.

The vehicle uses a dedicated "Elegy" interior, which is largely identical to the one used in the Banshee. However, the dials have a red tint. The passenger side of the dashboard also has the corresponding badge displaying the car's name, while the steering wheel bears the manufacturer badge.

The primary colour of the car is applied to the bodywork, while the secondary colour is applied on the bonnet, roof, mirrors and stitching. Its rim design is similar to the "Endo v.1" sport rims available in Los Santos Customs, although the lack of bolt details around the centre makes it more identical to the tuner variation.

The car accelerates relatively well from a standstill and reaches a good top speed. It also has very little wheel spin, thanks to the all wheel drive system. The car has good weight distribution and also has good balance when cornering, including high speed cornering. Cornering feels responsive most of the time, with good stability afforded to the driver, even at high speeds, rain, or snow.

The Elegy RH8 is one of the best handling cars (especially in the "Sports" class), due to its great traction, even weight distribution, and all-wheel drive configuration, but its Achilles heel is its braking, which even compared to some of the SUVs is very poor. However, due to its exceptional handling, braking is not always needed when taking corners, although needing to come to a dead stop quickly, unless the player uses the handbrake in tandem with the normal brakes, may become problematic in this car. It will also stall if one attempts to make a sharp 180 using the handbrake at high speeds - that is, if the player end up still going backwards after being turned around, if one continues to try and accelerate forwards, one will stall out for a split second.

The Elegy RH8 features a what is stated to be a 3-liter engine capable of pushing 560HP. The engine model appears to be a single cam V8, coupled to a 6-speed gearbox in a front engine, all wheel drive layout. The engine sound is generally low revving and rather loud, comparable to the one used in the Futo but with a lower pitch.

Elegy Retro Custom

The Elegy Retro Custom in Grand Theft Auto Online.
(Rear quarter view)

The Elegy Retro Custom is a sports tuning car based on the third generation Nissan Skyline (R32). It features custom liveries and advanced tuning modifications.


Grand Theft Auto V

  • Respawns infinitely as a "special vehicle" at each protagonists' delivery garage, as Rockstar Games Social Club bonus content.
    • The vehicle may spawn with no spoiler.

Grand Theft Auto Online


  • The default radio station of the Elegy RH8 is Space 103.2 and Lowdown 91.1.
  • The name "RH8" is a reference to "Record Holder 9" ("RH9"), a name given to GTRs that can run a 9 second quarter mile.[1]
  • When fitting any rear bumper with a diffuser, a sticker is added that reads "Bay Shore," this is translated to "Wangan" in Japan. This is a direct reference to the famous Japanese Mid Night Club street racing team of the 1990s. The sticker also bears near identical resemblance to the club's official team sticker. In turn, this is a reference to Rockstar Games' own franchise, Midnight Club. The sticker is also a reference to the semi-famous drift team and garage named Riverside, owned by the late Atsushi Kuroi. The sticker also shares the same font type as Riverside.
  • The Legendary Motorsport's description of the Elegy RH8 is a reference to the US Federal Government seizing and crushing banned Nissan Skylines that were illegally imported into the US.
  • The "German toll road" description is a reference to the Nissan GT-R being tested on the Nürburgring Nordschleife, a pro circuit that also serves as a toll road when there are no races.
  • When modifying the rear bumper, the reverse light will disappear, but the light will still shine when backing up; if the player manages to crash and make the rear bumper fall off, the reverse light will appear to be floating mid-air without being attached to anything.
  • When the Carbon Front Splitter is installed, a small sticker can be seen reading "Yours", a reference to the tuning company Mine's.
    • In the PC, PS4 and Xbox One versions of the game, the Carbon Front Splitter is modeled incorrectly, resulting in an asymmetrical design. However, it is possible that Rockstar has embraced this design, as the same asymmetry appears on the model on the Annis Japan Tee clothing item.
  • When the Exposed Intercooler grille is fitted, twin turbochargers are installed in the engine bay.
    • Humorously, the part can can be found in the files named "elegy_discopotato". This is a reference to the Garrett GT28 turbocharger, which is nicknamed "disco potato".
  • While the spoiler found on the car by default is treated as stock, Los Santos Customs lists the option as "None", meaning the spoiler cannot be removed, despite the stock spoiler being called "None".
    • Furthermore, the stock spoiler does not offer an increase in traction unlike the other spoilers available. This also applies to vehicles such as the ETR1, Gang Burrito, and Infernus.
  • If purchased for free, the vehicle was not available to sell at Los Santos Customs. This was changed in the Bikers update for the enhanced version, where the player is now able to sell the vehicle for 50% of the value of any modifications applied to the vehicle. This also applies to any vehicle bought prior to a major bug patch that fixed players being able to purchase vehicles with hacked money, albeit these vehicles also only sell for 50% of the value of any modifications applied. This only applies to the enhanced version of the game.
