GTA Online The Criminal Enterprises update was officially released late last month, bringing tons of features and six new vehicles. New doesn’t necessarily mean the best, though, especially when it comes to handling.

The Elegy RH8 is a car that has been picked up time and again by fans for its admirable handling. That said, in this article let’s find out all about the vehicle with the best driveability after the summer update.

How good is Elegy RH8 handling in GTA Online?

The Elegy RH8 delivers very good performance thanks to the V8 engine. It has a relatively decent top speed and acceleration, taking it from 0 to 60 mph quite quickly. It is considered one of the best handling cars in the game due to its even weight distribution, great traction and four wheel drive.

Furthermore, the car has a good balance. Every turn feels responsive and makes the car feel stable, whatever the weather. The balance also helps when making fast turns. In addition, the road holding is so good that sometimes braking is not even necessary. When the handbrake is in use, it can make sharp 180-degree turns.

As for the cons, the braking of the car is not as powerful as you would expect from a sports car. Players can lose speed for a split second while trying to draw a 180. Using the handbrake instead of normal brakes can be a problem when racing on the street.

That said, players can easily choose this ride for most races available in the game, as well as high-speed chase missions or heists that require a gateway car.

Annis Elegy RH8 is a two-door sports car from GTA Online. The design is heavily inspired by the real 2011 Nissan GT-R (R35) with the front resembling the Infiniti G37 Coupe and the rear resembling the Infiniti G35 Coupe.

The vehicle is one of a kind with an elegant and sleek visual design. The front has a grille with the Annis logo and an L-shaped headlight housing. The sides have inset panels, bevels, carbon fiber side skirts and a plastic finish around the windows.

The back, on the other hand, has a permanent red strip around the top part, a slightly thinner one in the middle and two red round lights on either side. The interior is very similar to that of the Banshee; However, Elegy RH8 has slightly red tinted dials.

When it comes to performance, the car is powered by a three-litre single-cam V8 engine with a six-speed gearbox that drives the vehicle in a front-mounted four-wheel drive. It can push up to 560 horsepower. It has a low revving but loud engine sound, like that of the Futo.

The car can be purchased for $95,000 from both Benny’s Original Motor Works and Legendary Motorsport. Players can also find it for free if they have GTA Online linked to their Social Club account. Gamers can even find the carbon black version in the Race Bet Vehicle Cargo Mission; they should be able to see it near the starting line.

As well as a slew of new vehicles, some much-loved favorites – including the Pegassi Zentorno, Benefactor Stirling GT, Grotti Turismo R – are getting a facelift with a selection of new liveries.

Rockstar has done a pretty good job of giving players a lot of options in terms of its car catalog. For players looking for a car with superior handling characteristics, Elegy RH8 is a name to consider. With the developers ready to add more cars to GTA Online later this summer, it’s best to pick up the sports car and add it to the collection right away.
