"Today's muscle cars might look shredded, but we all know the gains aren't real. Deep down they're all juiced-up phoneys with nothing but a short temper and a tiny exhaust. If you want some all-natural brawn, you need go old school. The big block under the Impaler's hood trains by chopping wood, benching peaceniks, and deriding the weak - and there's just no faking that."
Southern San Andreas Super Autos description.

The Impaler is a personal luxury car featured in Grand Theft Auto 1 and a classic muscle car in Grand Theft Auto Online as part of the Arena War update. It is manufactured by Declasse in the HD Universe.

Design

Grand Theft Auto 1

The Impaler appears to be based on a 1955-1957 Ford Thunderbird, although its name has a similarity to the Chevrolet Impala.

It has two variants: it can be found with its roof up in Liberty City, and with its roof down in Vice City. The Impaler appears with a continental kit on the back.

"The finest luxury car of the 1960's."
Arena War description.

The Impaler returns to Grand Theft Auto Online in the Arena War update, this time based on the fourth generation Chevrolet Impala. The car also has design cues from the 1967 Chevrolet Chevelle, especially for the rear end with tail lights on either side and reverse lights on bumper.

Like the Dukes, the Impaler's headlights rise from below, from the grille-plate. The Declasse logo can be found on the front end, rear quarters and rear end, with "DECLASSE" embossed on both ends and "Impaler" on the rear quarters. Most of its details, like the trimmings and the bumpers, can be painted with the secondary color, as well as its interior with the trim color.

The Impaler, if the player opts to not upgrade it into three other variants, has a great amount of modification options in Los Santos Customs, and can be modified to resemble it as a lowrider.

Performance

Grand Theft Auto 1

It is a fairly good performing car for its class; having a decent top speed, good handling and moderate durability.

Grand Theft Auto Online

The Impaler possesses good speed and average handling, but has bouts of spinning out if turning a corner too sharply. Durability is fairly good and can take a handful of collisions and gunfire before it starts to fail. In addition, its suspension is relatively bouncy around bumps and curbs.

Description

The Impaler can be converted into a custom "Arena" variant, which can be further modified with armor plating, scoops and weapons. It is available in three different versions: Apocalypse, Future Shock and Nightmare.

Locations

Grand Theft Auto 1

  • Found in Liberty City and Vice City. The first variant is the starting car in chapter Heist Almighty. The second variant is featured in three missions. In mission Bent Cop Blues - Phone 1, the player has to steal an Impaler. In mission Bent Cop Blues - Phone 11, the protagonist has to destroy an undrivable Impaler along with some more vehicles in the car dealership yard. In mission Rasta Blasta - Phone 7, the player has to protect four cars, including an Impaler, from Babylon agents; none of these four vehicles are drivable.

Grand Theft Auto Online

Bugs/Glitches

Grand Theft Auto Online

  • With the moulded bumper options, the vehicle’s reverse lights will still remain active, despite that this option removes the reverse lights themselves; this minor oversight can also be seen on the Arena War variants.

Trivia

General

  • The default radio station for the Impaler is East Los FM.
