The Beta Infernus is an unseen Infernus model that was rumored to be a part of the game. The myth originally began when a user shared images of his discovery about the claimed Infernus model on GTAForums. The evidence included a GTA Vice City compact disk, bearing artwork including a strange Infernus parked near the Malibu Club. Some characteristics of the car included updated sporty tires that weren't included in the final release of the game. Some players have speculated that during the early stages of game development, sporty tires from Grand Theft Auto III were used as placeholders, but were later ousted from the final version. Moreover, the color of the model seemed to be matte black, but astonishingly, matte black Infernus was never included in the game.
