For the manufacturer, see Jugular (manufacturer).
"You might be wondering, does the world really need another high-caliber sports saloon? But remember, there are some things the human race can never get enough of - like sex, or violence. And this isn't just any sex or violence: the Jugular is really kinky sex, and really gratuitous violence. Has that answered your question?"
Legendary Motorsport description.

The Jugular is a 2-door sports car in the first Grand Theft Auto and a 4-door sports saloon featured in Grand Theft Auto Online as part of the continuation of the The Diamond Casino & Resort update, released on October 10, 2019, during the Jugular Week event. It is manufactured by Jugular in the 2D Universe and Ocelot in the HD Universe.

Returning to Grand Theft Auto Online, the Jugular is now manufactured by Ocelot and assumes a brand new design. True to its name, it is based on the Jaguar XE SV Project 8. The headlights are similar to the 2nd gen BMW 8 Series, while the front bumper is taken from the Mercedes AMG GT R.

Performance

Grand Theft Auto

It has a good top speed and handling, but has low durability.

Grand Theft Auto Online

The Jugular possess average performance, but makes up for its traction and all wheel drive layout, allowing it to accelerate quicker and drive efficiently over uneven roads and moderately steep hills. While its handling is average, the car tends to understeer at even medium speeds, requiring effective use of the brakes to take corners appropriately. Top speed and braking remains decent compared to sports sedans like the Jackal and the Kuruma.

The Jugular has one (the eleventh) Advanced Flag enabled.[1] The purpose of this flag is unknown, but it appears to have little impact on performance.

The Jugular is powered by a V8 engine (suggested by its cover), coupled to a 8-speed gearbox in a F4 (30% front, 70% rear) layout. Its engine sound is similar to that of the XA-21.

Trivia

  • The Jugular currently holds the longest gap for a vehicle’s first and latest appearance within the franchise, having 21 years, 11 months, and 19 days between its debut in the first Grand Theft Auto and release date in GTA Online, beating the former Itali GTO.

Bugs/glitches

Grand Theft Auto Online

  • Statistically, the Jugular has 8 gears by default[4]. This causes problems when one upgrades the car's transmission, which adds one extra gear. As it reaches top (ninth) gear, it loses the ability to downshift itself. Therefore, unless the player manually enters reverse, they are likely going to have trouble accelerating on the next start. This also applies to the TorosBrutusParagon R, and the Novak.
  • The Jugular cannot be taken through a car wash.
