For players looking to drive in style in GTA Online, consider the luxurious Vapid Peyote Custom. The two-door lowrider came to Grand Theft Auto Online following the Los Santos Summer Special update. Its considered a variation of the Peyote, which has been featured in a variety of GTA games, including GTA 5, GTA 4, Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, and, of course, GTA Online.
This classic sports car is modelled after a Ford Thunderbird, also fondly known as a T-Bird. The two-door car was produced by Ford for a variety of years, starting in the 1950s and throughout the early 2000s.
The Vapid Peyote Custom available in GTA 5 and GTA Online most resembles a 1st Generation Thunderbird. Fans on the GTA Wiki have pointed out that the Peyote Custom’s front exterior bears an uncanny resemblance to the T-Bird models produced in the 1950s, whereas the backside is closer to a mid-60s Thunderbird. The vehicle has minor differences from Ford Thunderbird models, however, including double-stacked headlights and taillights as opposed to single ones. The car is also lacking a hooded scoop.
The Peyote Custom available in GTA Online also has several notable differences from earlier variations of the car available in other GTA games. For instance, whereas the plate holder is located in the rear in the original Peyote, it has been moved to the front of the vehicle. Similarly, the Peyote Custom features a single color on the body, thereby forgoing the two-tone coloring of the traditional model.
In addition to its physical appearance, the Peyote Custom in GTA Online features some differences in terms of its performance. Players have reported the vehicle is better in terms of its top speed and traction in comparison to earlier models. However, it’s still known for its poor braking and acceleration. It’s a weighty car that can be difficult while turning, but it’s nothing a steady hand on the steering wheel can’t solve.
It’s clear that Peyote Custom is a ride to remember in GTA Online. This begs the question of how players can get their hands on the vehicle and how much they’re going to need to pay. GTA Base explains that the Peyote Custom can be purchased directly from Benny’s Original Motor Works. Players will need to drop a cool $620,000 on the ride, which they can subsequently store in the Garage. The Vapid Peyote Custom also has a resale value of $372,000.
But the costs don’t necessarily stop there, as GTA Online’s Peyote Custom can also be customized at Benny’s Original Motor Works. Players can make a variety of modifications, improving everything from the car’s brakes, lights, suspension, and even the windows. Customizations can cost a pretty penny, with some of them topping thousands of dollars, especially if players choose the max armor upgrades. But it wouldn’t be Rockstar’s Grand Theft Auto Online without the endless options for car and character customization.
