== Description ==

The [[Declasse]] '''Rhapsody''' is a two-door hatchback, first appearing in the ''[[Grand Theft Auto IV]]'' episodic expansion ''[[The Lost and Damned]]'' and returning in ''[[Grand Theft Auto V]]'' and ''[[Grand Theft Auto Online]] ''as part of the [[I'm Not a Hipster Update|I'm Not a Hipster]] update.
The sides and rear of the Rhapsody resemble an [[wp:AMC Pacer|AMC Pacer]] manufactured in the 1970s, while the front bears similarities to a [[wp:Volkswagen Golf Mk1|Volkswagen Golf Mk I]]. The wheels appear to be aftermarket, bearing a resemblance to American Racing Ansen Sprint mag wheels.
 
   
The car handles similarly to the [[Blista Compact]], although the Rhapsody is an FR layout vehicle, (as opposed to the Blista Compact's FF layout) with more reasonable torque, and lower top speed.

The car handles similarly to the [[Blista Compact]], although the Rhapsody is an FR layout vehicle, (as opposed to the Blista Compact's FF layout) with more reasonable torque, and lower top speed. Its handling is very good, as its light weight and stiff suspension allow it to take turns at a high speed with almost no oversteer. However, crash deformation is poor, and as expected from a vehicle of this size and weight, its engine will fail after 3-4 head-on crashes. It is, however, '''very''' back-heavy and is prone to spinouts, but this trait can be good for drifting in the hands of experienced drivers.

The Declasse Rhapsody is a two-door hatchback, first appearing in the Grand Theft Auto IV episodic expansion The Lost and Damned and returning in Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online as part of the I'm Not a Hipster update.

DesignEdit

The car is based on the infamous AMC Pacer manufactured from 1970-75, while the front is designed after the Volkswagen Golf Mk1. The wheels appear to be aftermarket, bearing a resemblance to American Racing Ansen Sprint mag wheels. Thanks to the Pacer's wide windows, it offers very little protection if the driver is being shot at, which could be a problem in Online sessions.

Its appearance in GTA V is mostly unchanged, with the exception of whitewall tires added by default, and the optional customization features in Los Santos Customs. New body modification options include a ducktail spoiler, fender flares, and a bumper lip, a reference to the original Volkswagen Golf GTI.

All Games Edit

The car handles similarly to the Blista Compact, although the Rhapsody is an FR layout vehicle, (as opposed to the Blista Compact's FF layout) with more reasonable torque, and lower top speed. Its handling is very good, as its light weight and stiff suspension allow it to take turns at a high speed with almost no oversteer. However, crash deformation is poor, and as expected from a vehicle of this size and weight, its engine will fail after 3-4 head-on crashes. It is, however, very back-heavy and is prone to spinouts, but this trait can be good for drifting in the hands of experienced drivers.

The Rhapsody's performance is unchanged in GTA V.

In TLAD, there is a robin egg blue Rhapsody in the mission Off Route. The car is across the street from the player after the starting cutscene. The player can obtain this uniquely colored vehicle by parking it at any safehouse without harming the completion of the mission. A tip to obtain this is to park it outside the Bellic Penthouse on Albany Avenue.

TriviaEdit

  • The Rhapsody's name is a reference to the 1992 film Wayne's World, specifically the famous scene where the two lead characters, Wayne and Garth, sing along to the song "Bohemian Rhapsody" by Queen while driving in the "Mirthmobile" (an AMC Pacer). A photograph can be seen within the Rhapsody depicting Wayne and Garth. Furthermore, a "W" (as in "Wayne's World") is seen badged inside and outside the car, also the photo says "Schwing", one of the catch phases used by Wayne and Garth in the movie.
    • In GTA V, the sticker in the Rhapsody has been removed.
  • The default radio stations for the Rhapsody are:
  • The Rhapsody shares its interior with the Stallion, like the Regina, with the Rhapsody badge stamped on the dashboard and doors. As such, the steering wheel on the Rhapsody bears a Classique logo rather than a Declasse logo.
  • The Rhapsody looks similar to a vehicle featured in the 2006 Atari game Driver: Parallel Lines, which was also called the "Rhapsody".
  • The Rhapsody's handling appears in the Handling.cfg/GTA V for Grand Theft Auto V but it didn't appear in-game until the I'm Not a Hipster Update.
  • In Grand Theft Auto V, through customization, it's possible to make the Rhapsody resemble the Pacer used in the film Wayne's World.
  • It is the first car from a Grand Theft Auto IV episode to be brought back into GTA V through an update in a mostly unchanged form.
  • In TLAD, there is an easter egg that can be found inside the Rhapsody. The dashboard of the Rhapsody has a small sticker of Wayne and Garth from the movie Wayne's World, which famously features the song "Bohemian Rhapsody". However in GTA V, this easter egg is removed and the photo is now blank.
