The Elegy is based loosely on the eighth generation (R32) [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nissan_Skyline#R31 Nissan Skyline], which was only sold officially in Japan and Australia and is rarely ever seen in the US market. It actually seems to be an amalgmation of various Skylines, taking its squarish front mostly from the [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nissan_Skyline#R31 R31 Skyline], and its basic shape from the [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nissan_Skyline#R32 R32]. The vehicle has offley weird shaped tailights bearing the resemblance of the R34 Tailights. The Elegy is rear-wheel drive, unlike the well known [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nissan_Skyline_GT-R Skyline GT-R], which is all-wheel drive, but the Elegy's understated styling, closed grille, and lack of any large wing means it's likely to be more closely related to rear-wheel-drive Skylines such as the [http://www.japanesesportcars.com/photos/d/18373-2/1991_skyline-gts-t-type-m.jpg GTS-t].

Acceleration, speed, and handling are very impressive, but has a huge amount of torque, causing burnouts, fishtailing and oversteer as the engine tends to overpower the drivetrain, threatening to spin it out if attempting to turn in corners. This also makes the car virtually unmanageable at high speeds after a back tire has been shot out, making it extremely difficult to maintain control. Because of the massive power, the Elegy spins out when you drift the car. The Elegy has a short wheelbase and strong body, so it is capable of withstanding a good deal of damage. With a little practice, the Elegy can be used as a drift car without the use of handling mods.

The Annis Elegy is a sports car from Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.

Design Edit

The Elegy is based loosely on the eighth generation Nissan Skyline, which was only sold officially in Japan and Australia and is rarely ever seen in the US market. It actually seems to be an amalgmation of various Skylines, taking its squarish front mostly from the R31 Skyline, and its basic shape from the R32. The vehicle's taillights and rear fascia bear a close resemblance to those of the R34. The Elegy is rear-wheel drive, unlike the well known Nissan Skyline GT-R, which is all-wheel drive, but the Elegy's understated styling, closed grille, and lack of any large wing means it's likely to be more closely related to rear-wheel-drive Skylines such as the GTS-t

Performance Edit

Elegy Drift-NOS Drift

An Elegy Drifting with Nitrous Oxide (N20 or simply NOS).

Acceleration, speed, and handling are very impressive, but has a huge amount of torque, causing burnouts, fishtailing and oversteer as the engine tends to overpower the drivetrain, threatening to spin it out if attempting to turn in corners. This also makes the car virtually unmanageable at high speeds after a back tire has been shot out, making it extremely difficult to maintain control. Because of the massive power, the Elegy spins out when you drift the car. The Elegy has a short wheelbase and strong body, so it is capable of withstanding a good deal of damage. With a little practice, the Elegy can be used as a drift car without the use of handling mods.

The Elegy appears to have a fuel-injected, naturally aspirated inline engine, like its real life counterpart which uses a 6-cylinder inline engine, albeit turbocharged. The engine is, unusually, mounted transversely even though the car is RWD. However, it can be assumed that many cars share the same ingame engine design to save storage.

Both the acceleration and top speed are top of the line.
