The car is based on a blend of the [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ford_Crown_Victoria second generation Ford Crown Victoria] and the [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mercury_Sable first generation Mercury Sable](Check the taillight designs) and is very similar to a [[wp:Chevrolet Caprice|Chevrolet Caprice]] and [[wp:BMW 5 Series (E34)|1988-1995 BMW 5 Series]].

The car is mostly based on the Mazda 929 HC Hardtop Sedan, [[wp:Buick Roadmaster|Eighth Generation Buick Roadmaster sedan]] without the rear fender skirts and a inverted grille. Some styling comes from the [[wp:Ford Crown Victoria|Second Generation Ford Crown Victoria]], through it started production in 1998 thus making this probably a coincidence. It also looks somewhat like a [[wp:BMW 5 Series (E34)|BMW e34 5 Series]], particularly in the body shape itself.
Although it is very similar to the [[Premier]], and is probably a corpoate cousin to it as well, the Elegant is larger and heavier, closely resembling an Eighth Generation Buick Roadmaster without the rear fender skirts. The Elegant, however, does bears a vertically split grille similar to the Premier's.

The Willard Elegant (known as Elegance in the beta) is a four-door sedan in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. It is possibly a "cousin" to the Premier since they are similar in build.

DescriptionEdit

DesignEdit

The car is mostly based on the Mazda 929 HC Hardtop Sedan, Eighth Generation Buick Roadmaster sedan without the rear fender skirts and a inverted grille. Some styling comes from the Second Generation Ford Crown Victoria, through it started production in 1998 thus making this probably a coincidence. It also looks somewhat like a BMW e34 5 Series, particularly in the body shape itself.

PerformanceEdit

Despite the Elegant's substantial curb weight, a very powerful V8 propels this rear-wheel drive monster quite impressively. Its performance attributes are very similar to those of the Premier, just on a larger frame: engine performance and handling are quite satisfying, although slight understeer is evident. This can, however, be compensated for with the E-brake around corners. Because of the vehicle's mass, it cannot reach quite the same speeds as the Premier, and requires longer stopping distances. This does, however, comes with the compromise of increased durability and better ramming capabilities, and handles well in gunfights.

Modifications Edit

It can only be modified at TransFender.
