GTA Online contains a diverse selection of high-performance sports cars, including the Truffade Thrax, which is particularly sought after by players for its stylish appearance, speed, and usefulness in completing missions and challenges. Despite being introduced to the game in July 2019 as part of the Diamond Casino and Resort update, the Truffade Thrax remains one of the top-performing cars in the game, outpacing even newer models.

However, the Truffade Thrax comes with a hefty price tag, so it's essential to familiarize oneself with the vehicle's capabilities before making a purchase. Nevertheless, here are five compelling reasons to consider owning a Truffade Thrax supercar in the Los Santos Drug Wars mission of GTA Online.

1. Modern design

The Truffade Thrax, a supercar in GTA Online, showcases a trendy and contemporary appearance inspired by the Bugatti Divo and Italdesign Zerouno. Carbon fiber inserts and fins decorate the front section of the car, while dual exit vents run across its width at the rear. The Thrax's aerodynamic design not only adds to its aesthetic appeal but also contributes to its impressive speed. Additionally, its high-performance engine situated at the rear end further enhances its swiftness.


The design of the Truffade Thrax in GTA Online seems to be inspired by the Bugatti Divo, a high-performance racing car. While the back of the car is primarily modeled after the Italdesign Zerouno, the hexagonal exhaust is placed higher than it is on the Zerouno. The Thrax's sides resemble those of the Bugatti Chiron or the Vision Gran Turismo, with angular lines that are reminiscent of the Lamborghini Centenario.

2. Great performance

The Truffade Thrax in GTA Online is outstanding in its own right, with exceptional traction and an impressive amount of acceleration and top speed. It can maneuver through heavy traffic with ease and has nimble handling. Furthermore, its high top speed surpasses even other supercars on long straightaways during races. However, its durability is only average, and it is not very resistant to severe collisions. Therefore, players should exercise caution when driving the Thrax, especially when fully upgraded, as the high acceleration can cause a slight loss of control.

According to Rockstar Games' official website, the Truffade Thrax's performance in various categories is rated on a scale of 100, as follows:

  • Speed - 85.04
  • Acceleration - 85.04
  • Brakes - 40.00
  • Handling - 100.00
  • Overall - 77.52

The actual top speed of the Thrax in GTA V is 124.00 mph (199.56 km/h) when it's fully upgraded, as it's been accurately tested in-game by Broughy1322.

3. Perfect alternative to Ocelot Virtue

As part of The Last Dose update, Rockstar Games introduced the Ocelot Virtue to GTA Online. Although the Virtue is considered a high-performance car, it falls short in comparison to the Truffade Thrax, which is significantly faster. The Truffade Thrax can reach a maximum speed of 124.00 mph or 199.56 km/h, while the Ocelot Virtue can only manage 119.25 mph or 191.91 km/h.

Moreover, the Truffade Thrax boasts a faster lap time of 0:59.261. While both cars have similar prices, players can only obtain the Ocelot Virtue in GTA Online by completing all Last Dose missions. Nevertheless, the Truffade Thrax proves to be equally, if not more, impressive in all aspects.

4. Endless customization options

Players have the option to modify the Truffade Thrax in 21 different categories at both Los Santos Customs and the Agency Workshop in GTA Online. These categories include upgrades to the engine, brakes, bumpers, transmissions, and suspensions, among others, which can enhance the car's performance.

It is probable that the name "Thrax" was chosen as a reference to Maximinus Thrax, a Roman emperor, just like the Truffade Nero which is also named after a Roman emperor.

The car can also be turbo-tuned, and players can add bulletproof tires. In addition, the Thrax has nine standard liveries, and an Ink Inc livery can be unlocked as a reward. With the introduction of the License Plate Creator website in GTA Online, players can create up to 30 customized license plates and attach one to their Truffade Thrax at no additional cost.

5. Fastest car by Truffade

Truffade has only produced five cars in GTA Online to date, and among them, the Thrax holds the title for the fastest lap time of 0:59.261. Although other Truffade vehicles such as the Z-Type and Nero have slightly higher maximum speeds, the Thrax's structure and acceleration give it an advantage.

These characteristics make it a valuable asset for those who participate in online racing. The tracks in GTA Online races are abundant with bends and curves where cars like the Thrax perform better than their counterparts.

Forget unitary construction. Put your monocoque back in your pants. The rolling chassis is back, and it's making sweet, naphtha-kerosene-drenched love to the hottest body in the world. Don't worry if you don't understand any of that, just take the corners hard and you feel the future. Trust us.
