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


The Elegy is based loosely on the eighth generation (R32) 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 has awfully weird shaped tailights bearing the resemblance of the R34 Tailights. The Elegy is rear-wheel drive, unlike the well known 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


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's engine is a twin-turbo 3.8 liter V6. Horsepower is at least 320 hp. The maxiumum topspeed for the elegy is 180MPH ( 289KPH ).



Possible combinations of modifications that can be given to Elegy's at Wheel Arch Angels in GTA San Andreas.

Since it is a tuner, it can only be modified in Wheel Arch Angels in Ocean Flats, San Fierro.

  • The Elegy is used by the San Fierro Triads as one of their gang cars, alongside the Sultan and the Stratum, which are also both tuners.
  • The default radio station in the Elegy is CSR 103.9. However, stealing one from a Triad member will result in the station being set by default to SF-UR.
  • Due to the lower height of its driver's seat, CJ will kick the car's occupant when stealing the car.
  • The Skoiloine, a removed car from GTA:LCS, is possibly based on the Elegy.
  • With the Elegy having poor grip at high speeds, players tend to use it as a drift car without modded handling lines.
  • Wu Zi Mu uses a pink Elegy in mission, Farewell, My Love....
  • In literature, Elegy is a mournful, melancholic or plaintive poem. This, however, contradicted with Nissan Skyline's status as a highly praised car among auto enthusiasts.
  • It's beta name was going to be Legend 566 but it changed to Elegy. There are 3 hidden paintjobs in the game files that are called: Legend1, Legend2 and Legend3. They can be inserted in the game by using an IMG editor that could open gta3.img and export the 3 hidden files to the computer and renaming them to Elegy1, Elegy2 and Elegy3 or rename them to Elegy4, Elegy5 and Elegy6 and export to the gta3.img file again, this option will keep all the paintjobs.
