}}The [[Albany]] '''Manana''' (pronounced ''Ma-Nya-Nah'') was originally a compact two-door coupe/city car first introduced in [[Grand Theft Auto III]] and appeared in every game since then. For much of its existence, the Manana has been designed as a low-end vehicle, combining poor performance with unappealing aesthetics. The Manana concept was significantly changed into a full-size classic coupe in the [[HD Universe]], with a slightly better performance.

==Description==
   
To date, the Manana has appeared in the following games:
 
 
* [[Grand Theft Auto III]]
 
* [[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City]]
 
* [[Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas]]
 
* [[Grand Theft Auto Advance]]
 
* [[Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories]]
 
* [[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories]]
 
* [[Grand Theft Auto IV]]
 
* [[Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars]]
 
* [[Grand Theft Auto V]]
 
 
The Manana also appears to feature in Grand Theft Auto V, according to screen shots of Rockstar's second GTA V trailer.[[File:Screen_shot_2012-12-25_at_03.55.41.png|thumb|The distinctive rear end of the GTA IV style Manana in GTA V trailer #2.]][[File:Screen_shot_2012-12-25_at_03.55.58.png|thumb|The GTA V Manana front end, similar to that of GTA IV.]]

===GTA III — GTA Vice City Stories===
In its early appearances, the Manana is a small car with little power and poor handling characteristics. In [[Grand Theft Auto III]], [[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City]], and [[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories]], the vehicle assumes a very boxy design, resembling coupe variants of a [[wp:Dodge Aries|Dodge Aries]] or a [[wp:Plymouth Reliant|Plymouth Reliant K]]. Its appearance remains "boxy" in GTA Vice City and GTA Vice City Stories — reflecting early 1980s automobile design trends. At one point during [[Beta Releases#Grand Theft Auto III|development of GTA III]], the Manana was known on the [[Capital Autos]] website as the "'''Ariant'''", an evident portmanteau of the Dodge Aries and Plymouth Reliant names.

Additional redesigns for the Manana were made for [[Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas]], [[Grand Theft Auto Advance]] and [[Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories]]. In GTA San Andreas, the Manana assumed a slightly different body design, resembling a [[wp:Dodge Shadow|Dodge Shadow]] or [[wp:Plymouth Sundance|Plymouth Sundance]] or a 1990 Ford Escort from front angle (but with front turn signals like earlier renditions). The GTA Advance rendition of the car features an older design than any previous version, harking back to a 1970s model. In GTA Liberty City Stories, a rounder 1990s convertible body design was used, resembling a [[wp:Mazda Miata|Mazda Miata]], or a [[wp:Chevrolet Cavalier|1997 Chevrolet Cavalier z24 convertible]] with much improved handling.

The [[Albany]] Manana has a very different look in [[Grand Theft Auto IV]] compared to its namesake in the previous games - it is now a classic luxury coupe similar to the [[Buccaneer]]. The front detailing resembles that of a [[wp:Buick LeSabre#1971-1976|1975 Buick LeSabre]], but [[File:Manana badges.png|thumb]]the overall design is derived from a [[wp:Cadillac Eldorado#1967-1970|1967 or '68 Cadillac Eldorado]]; the front bumper is derived from neither of these cars, having a late '70s look. The car is available as both a coupe and a convertible. The GTA IV rendition of the Manana does have one thing in common with the prior versions: it still has poor performance and mediocre handling, although it is far from the worst-handling car in the game. Its top speed is about 141&nbsp;mph, but it takes a very long while to get there, given that it has acceleration figures identical to a Karin [[Dilettante]]. It has good crash deformation, probably owing to its heaviness and sturdy construction. It is able to withstand 3-4 direct front impacts before catching fire or becoming undriverable. Unlike most heavy, underpowered cars (such as the [[Moonbeam]] and [[Voodoo]]), the Manana is capable of doing a burnout. The car is not fitted for rolling over. When you crash, the car will most likely have much trouble flipping back wasting your car. The car can be sold for $1,200 at [[S&M Auto Sales]] after completion of [[Stevie's Car Thefts]] in GTA IV.

===GTA Chinatown Wars===
   
The Manana in GTA Chinatown Wars exists exclusively as the gang car for the [[Hillside Posse|Yardies]], appearing only with a green body color and a yellow [[wp:Vinyl roof|landau]], and a more compact 1960s/1970s design. Performance wise, the car is a significant improvement over its many preceding renditions, with moderate top speed and acceleration, good steering and acceptable brakes. For the first time in the series, it is a 4-door sedan, which can be compared with the [[Greenwood]] in its appearance.

  +
The Manana makes its return in [[Grand Theft Auto V|GTA V]], but has not changed much since its last appearance in [[Grand Theft Auto IV|GTA IV]], the only notable difference being the absence of white wall tires (which can be purchased from[[ Los Santos Customs]]). It is now highly customizable, and also available in gang modified variants. Its performance is mediocre, with bad acceleration and modest top speed, even with upgrades. It is a heavy vehicle, and is prone to fishtailing at high speeds.

==Performance==
The Manana is featured prominently in the GTA III mission "[[Dead Skunk in the Trunk]]" for [[Joey Leone]]. [[Claude]] is charged with taking the car from [[Greasy Joe's]] to [[Harwood Autocrusher and Junkyard]], whilst avoiding the Forelli Brothers. A special version of the car is used, featuring blood smeared at the tail of the vehicle, and, if the trunk lid is bumped loose, revealing the corpse of a [[Forelli Family]] gang member which is in the trunk. After disposing of the Forelli Brothers' [[Sentinel]]s, the corpse-carrying Manana can be taken back to the player's safehouse and blown up in the garage. While this will fail the mission, after the garage closes and re-opens, this unique Manana can be saved and kept. Internal files reveal this design of the Manana as '''Corpse'''. This Manana has also a different horn sound, identical to the one of the [[Landstalker]].
+
[[File:Manana-GTA4-engine.png|thumb|Engine close-up in [[GTA IV]].]]
  +
In the [[3D Universe]], Manana had a very sluggish acceleration and has a top speed around a mere 97&nbsp;mph (156 kph), but the Manana is slow enough that its cornering abilities are quite good. It has ABS and strong bodywork, so it can hit a Mule to move out of its way or avoid the roadblocks with its outstanding cornering ability. The Manana is powered by a 1.4L four cylinder engine, with the exception of Vice City Stories' inline-3 and Liberty City Stories' V6.
  +
[[File:Manana,Albany.jpg|thumb|Engine close-up in [[GTA V]].]]
   
In the mission [[Twisted Metal]] in [[GTA Advance]] , a unique dark cherry red Manana is used to exterminate [[Vinnie]]'s body, the colour is much darker than the normal red Manana.
 
   
A unique maroon red Manana is featured in the [[Ran Fa Li (mission)|Ran Fa Li mission]] in [[GTA San Andreas]] where CJ has to take the Manana to a garage, you have to blow it up to fail the mission. Then after, your Manana will be saved.
+
In GTA IV, the Manana has a 4.0L V8 coupled to 4-speed automatic gearbox, but due to its weight, it still suffers from sluggish speed and handling. It still has adequate brakes, but because of its higher curb weight, it takes longer to stop due to its larger mass.
   
In GTA IV, a Manana is requested as part of [[Stevie's Car Thefts]], appearing with a uniquely white top (if it appears with a top) and grey body. As a new Manana will respawn at the same spot until the player delivers one to [[S&M Auto Sales]], the player can save one at their safehouse before delivering another.
+
In GTA V, the Manana's performance did not go through any radical changes since its last iteration. Despite featuring a decent sized 4.0L V8, the vehicle feels very underpowered, possibly owing to its heavy weight. Acceleration is sluggish, and the vehicle has excessive body roll and bad weight distribution which may lead to fishtailing at high speeds. Crash deformation is the only solid point in this car's handling, as the Manana can take multiple hits to its body and engine without breaking down. Its performance is similar to that of its [[Declasse]]-manufactured competitor, the [[Voodoo]], being a heavy but moderate acceleration. 
   
In [[TBOGT]], there is a chance to steal a unique maroon and gold Manana. During [[Arnaud]]'s second [[Random Encounter|encounter]], he drives this Manana to chase after a pimp, who stole his wallet and beat him up after a rather odd night of opium and [http://gta.wikia.com/Prostitutes prostitutes]. After you drop off Arnaud, you keep the car.
+
==Customizations (GTA San Andreas)==
  +
The Manana can only be modified in a [[TransFender]] garage.

== Trivia ==
+
In [[Grand Theft Auto IV]], a Manana is requested as part of [[Stevie's Car Thefts]], appearing with a uniquely white top (if it appears with a top) and grey body. As a new Manana will respawn at the same spot until the player delivers one to [[S&M Auto Sales]], the player can save one at their safehouse before delivering another.
* "Mañana" is Spanish for "morning" and "tomorrow", possibly a reference to the car's markedly unimpressive speed and handling (ie. "You'll get there tomorrow").
+
* At one point during the development of GTA III, the Manana (Ariant) had a similar front end to the [[Taxi]].
+
In [[TBOGT|TBoGT]], there is a chance to steal a unique maroon and gold Manana. During [[Arnaud]]'s second [[Random Encounter|encounter]], he drives this Manana to chase after a pimp, who stole his wallet and beat him up after a rather odd night of opium and [http://gta.wikia.com/Prostitutes prostitutes]. After you drop off Arnaud, you keep the car.
* In GTA IV, despite there being no "[[wikt:ñ|ñ]]" in its name, the police chatter pronounce its name ("man - yah - nuh").
+
* In GTA IV, the car emits a [["Door Ajar" Chime|&quot;door ajar&quot; chime]] when one of its doors is opened, unusual considering the rarity of the feature in real-life cars from the 1960s and 1970s.
+
In [[Grand Theft Auto V]], there are unique modified Mananas belonging to the [[Los Santos Vagos (HD Universe)|Los Santos Vagos]], [[The Families|Families]], and [[Ballas (HD Universe)|Ballas]] gangs. These gang variants feature upgraded performance parts, front bumper splitters, rear wheel well covers, headlight grills, chrome side flames, curb feelers, and aftermarket rims. The gangs will open fire against the player if he steals one of their cars.
* The Manana plays the following radio stations by default when entered:

* In GTA San Andreas, there is a glitch where if you damage the Manana extensively and exit the vehicle, it sometimes suddenly turns white and lacks a sheen. If you reenter the vehicle, it remains like that until it is either repaired or destroyed.

The Albany Manana (pronounced Ma-Nya-Nah) was originally a compact two-door coupe/city car first introduced in Grand Theft Auto III and appeared in every game since then. For much of its existence, the Manana has been designed as a low-end vehicle, combining poor performance with unappealing aesthetics. The Manana concept was significantly changed into a full-size classic coupe in the HD Universe, with a slightly better performance.

DescriptionEdit

GTA III — GTA Vice City StoriesEdit

In its early appearances, the Manana is a city car with little power and poor handling characteristics. In Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, the vehicle assumes a very boxy design, resembling coupe variants of a Dodge Aries/Plymouth Reliant K, Pontiac Grand Am, or a Ford Tempo. Its appearance remains "boxy" in GTA Vice City and GTA Vice City Stories — reflecting early 1980s automobile design trends. At one point during development of GTA III, the Manana was known on the Capital Autos website as the "Ariant", an evident portmanteau of the Dodge Aries and Plymouth Reliant names.

Additional redesigns for the Manana were made for Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Grand Theft Auto Advance and Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories. In GTA San Andreas, the Manana assumed a slightly different body design, resembling a Toyota Tercel ,Dodge Shadow or Plymouth Sundance or a 1990 Ford Escort from front angle (but with front turn signals like earlier renditions). The GTA Advance rendition of the car features an older design than any previous version, harking back to a 1970s model. In GTA Liberty City Stories, a rounder 1990s convertible body design was used, resembling a 1997 Chevrolet Cavalier z24 convertible and Honda Del Sol with much improved performance compared to its predecessors.

In GTA San Andreas, the Manana can be seen driven by members of the Da Nang Boys around Easter Basin and Garver Bridge, both in San Fierro.

GTA IVEdit

The Albany Manana has a very different look in Grand Theft Auto IV compared to its namesake in the previous games - it is now a classic luxury coupe similar to the Buccaneer. The front detailing resembles that of a 1975 Buick LeSabre, but
Manana badges
the overall design is derived from a 1967 or '68 Cadillac Eldorado; the front bumper is derived from neither of these cars, having a late '70s look. The car is available as both a coupe and a convertible. The GTA IV rendition of the Manana does have one thing in common with the prior versions: it still has poor performance and mediocre handling, although it is far from the worst-handling car in the game. Its top speed is about 141 mph, but it takes a very long while to get there, given that it has acceleration figures identical to a Karin Dilettante. It has good crash deformation, probably owing to its heaviness and sturdy construction. It is able to withstand 3-4 direct front impacts before catching fire or becoming undriverable. Unlike most heavy, underpowered cars (such as the Moonbeam and Voodoo), the Manana is capable of doing a burnout. The car is not fitted for rolling over. When you crash, the car will most likely have much trouble flipping back wasting your car. The car can be sold for $1,200 at S&M Auto Sales after completion of Stevie's Car Thefts in GTA IV.

GTA Chinatown WarsEdit

The Manana in Chinatown Wars is the exclusive gang car for the Yardies, appearing only with a green body color and a yellow landau, and a more compact 1960s design. Performance wise, the car is a significant improvement over its many preceding renditions, with moderate top speed and acceleration, good steering and acceptable brakes. For the first time in the series, it is a 4-door sedan, which can be compared to the third generation Ford zephyr in its appearance how ether its not certain whether Ford made a landau version of the car.

GTA VEdit

The Manana makes its return in GTA V, but has not changed much since its last appearance in GTA IV, the only notable difference being the absence of white wall tires (which can be purchased from Los Santos Customs). It is now highly customizable, and also available in gang modified variants. Its performance is mediocre, with bad acceleration and modest top speed, even with upgrades. It is a heavy vehicle, and is prone to fishtailing at high speeds.

PerformanceEdit

Manana-GTA4-engine

Engine close-up in GTA IV.

In the 3D Universe, Manana had a very sluggish acceleration and has a top speed around a mere 97 mph (156 kph), but the Manana is slow enough that its cornering abilities are quite good. It has ABS and strong bodywork, so it can hit a Mule to move out of its way or avoid the roadblocks with its outstanding cornering ability. The Manana is powered by a 1.4L four cylinder engine, with the exception of Vice City Stories' inline-3 and Liberty City Stories' V6.

Manana,Albany

Engine close-up in GTA V.


In GTA IV, the Manana has a 4.0L V8 coupled to 4-speed automatic gearbox, but due to its weight, it still suffers from sluggish speed and handling. It still has adequate brakes, but because of its higher curb weight, it takes longer to stop due to its larger mass.

In GTA V, the Manana's performance did not go through any radical changes since its last iteration. Despite featuring a decent sized 4.0L V8, the vehicle feels very underpowered, possibly owing to its heavy weight. Acceleration is sluggish, and the vehicle has excessive body roll and bad weight distribution which may lead to fishtailing at high speeds. Crash deformation is the only solid point in this car's handling, as the Manana can take multiple hits to its body and engine without breaking down. Its performance is similar to that of its Declasse-manufactured competitor, the Voodoo, being a heavy but moderate acceleration. 

Customizations (GTA San Andreas)Edit

The Manana can only be modified in a TransFender garage.

VariantsEdit

The Manana is featured prominently in the Grand Theft Auto III mission "Dead Skunk in the Trunk" for Joey Leone. Claude is charged with taking the car from Greasy Joe's to Harwood Autocrusher and Junkyard, whilst avoiding the Forelli Brothers. A special version of the car is used, featuring blood smeared at the tail of the vehicle, and, if the trunk lid is bumped loose, revealing the corpse of a Forelli Family gang member which is in the trunk. After disposing of the Forelli Brothers' Sentinels, the corpse-carrying Manana can be taken back to the player's safehouse and blown up in the garage. While this will fail the mission, after the garage closes and re-opens, this unique Manana can be saved and kept. Internal files reveal this design of the Manana as Corpse. This Manana has also a different horn sound, identical to the one of the Landstalker.

In the mission Twisted Metal in GTA Advance, a unique dark cherry red Manana is used to exterminate Vinnie's body, the colour is much darker than the normal red Manana.

A unique maroon red Manana is featured in the Ran Fa Li mission in GTA San Andreas where CJ has to take the Manana to a garage, you have to blow it up to fail the mission. Then after, your Manana will be saved.

In Grand Theft Auto IV, a Manana is requested as part of Stevie's Car Thefts, appearing with a uniquely white top (if it appears with a top) and grey body. As a new Manana will respawn at the same spot until the player delivers one to S&M Auto Sales, the player can save one at their safehouse before delivering another.

In TBoGT, there is a chance to steal a unique maroon and gold Manana. During Arnaud's second encounter, he drives this Manana to chase after a pimp, who stole his wallet and beat him up after a rather odd night of opium and prostitutes. After you drop off Arnaud, you keep the car.

In Grand Theft Auto V, there are unique modified Mananas belonging to the Los Santos Vagos, Families, and Ballas gangs. These gang variants feature upgraded performance parts, front bumper splitters, rear wheel well covers, headlight grills, chrome side flames, curb feelers, and aftermarket rims. The gangs will open fire against the player if he steals one of their cars.
