The Elegy RH8 is designed as a two-door sports car with a sleek appearance, where the greenhouse, front quarter, rear bumper area, natural rear wing and wheels are inspired by the Nissan GT-R (R35). The front headlamps are reminiscent of that of the Infiniti G37 Coupes, which is also related to the Nissan Skyline/Nissan GT-R, having small intakes on in the housing. The tail lights resemble the tail lights of the Toyota FT-86 Concept.
The Elegy RH8 appears to have Carbon fiber reinforced polymer front splitter, front intakes, sideskirts, medium-sized spoiler and rear diffuser. The rear wheel arches are fitted with large intakes positioned close to the doors. The dual exhaust system appears to have its twin tail pipes set inside the rear splitter. The car has the "ELEGY" marking on the rear end and a red stripe that passes over the taillights.
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 its exceptional handling, braking is not always needed when taking corners, although needing to come to a dead stop quickly 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.
