The performance of the Sesto Elemento is up to par with the fastest class A cars in the game, as it benefits from its low weight. It is capable of reaching a top speed of 214 mph (344 km/h), which can be attained quickly thanks to its fast acceleration. Its steering is predictable in every corner and is very precise.
Compared to the Lamborghini Murciélago LP 640, the Sesto Elemento has more power and better handling, but lacks a powerful nitrous boost, although it can be improved with the addition of three star skill mods.
The Sesto Elemento is one of the best cars the players can purchase for multiplayer races, but can be beaten by cheaper class A cars with similar performance. In police chases, it can manoeuvre around obstacles quickly too. However, the chassis of the Sesto Elemento is not strong enough to sustain damage well.
