The Uranus is a two-door sport compact which appears in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas and Grand Theft Auto IV. It is manufactured by Vapid in GTA IV.

Design

GTA San Andreas

In GTA San Andreas, the Uranus appears as a tuner coupe. It is based on the cars that are part of the 1992-1994 Chrysler D platform, such as the Mitsubishi Eclipse, Eagle Talon, and Plymouth Laser. It shares its headlights with the first generation Mitsubishi Eclipse, while the taillights are based on the Eagle Talon. The body shape itself is smiler to the 1980 1983 Talbot Murena. The vehicle shares some design elements with the Nissan Sileighty S13 and Ford Probe.

GTA IV

The Uranus is redesigned for GTA IV, having been branded with a Vapid badge. The car is strongly based on the
Uranus badges
First Generation North American Ford Escort, with the front being inspired more by the First generation (facelift) Ford Sierra XR4i and its US market counterpart the Ford Merkur XR4Ti. The sides of the car appears to be based on 1987 Dodge Charger "Shelby Edition" The rear fascia resembles, albeit loosely, the XR4i. There are also some design features from the Third Generation Ford Mustang, mostly comprising of the black pieces of trim and the shape of the side window.

A modified version of the Uranus also appears in the game. It is usually driven by members of the Russian Mafia and appears in Hove Beach with a custom bodykit, aftermarket exhaust, rear window louvers, a "whale-tail" spoiler, which closely resembles a spoiler available on the Sierra RS Cosworth, and a large windshield decal that reads "LOZSPEED". The interior of the vehicle is also modified with LOZSPEED racing seats, aluminum pedals, and white gauges with black digits.There is also a pink Burberry Baseball Cap placed behind the back seats. This modified version, however, lacks any enhanced performance over its stock counterpart.

In The Ballad of Gay Tony, the LOZSPEED Uranus is one of vehicles that can be found with a unique paint job during the Drug Wars side missions. It can be found in a few different color combinations, including, but not limited to, matte black paint and green rims, pearlescent blue paint with purple undertones and black wheels, and yellow and dark brown two-tone paint with brown wheels. The color combinations correspond with which faction the player is fighting against.

GTA V

The Uranus is not present in GTA V in drivable form, though the vehicle's handling can be found in the game's files. However it can be found as an undrivable wreck throughout Los Santos and Blaine County.

Performance

GTA San Andreas

GTA San Andreas' Uranus is regarded as an average sports coupe, with above average acceleration and top speed, and very stable cornering and grip, coupled with excellent braking. However, given the vehicle's stiff suspensions, considerably high ground clearance, a tall body construction and shorter axle tracks, the vehicle's risk of tipping over on bumpy terrain is higher than most cars of its class. The engine sounds like the turbocharged 2.0L that is used in the real-life cars that the Uranus is based on.

GTA IV

The Uranus in GTA IV is powered by what sounds and drives like a six-cylinder engine, coupled to a 4 speed gearbox in an FF layout. Acceleration is fair, and top speed is 143 mph (230 km/h), but leaves a lot to be desired. The suspension is somewhat soft, and leads to much body roll, making the Uranus sometimes fishtail when cornering at higher speeds. The backend of the car tends to bounce up and down rapidly when speeding over very bumpy roads. Braking is subpar and ABS is not available on the Uranus. Accident deformation is very poor, often rendering the vehicle undrivable after one or two major impacts to the front. The engine is also very shoddily built, and stalls after two to three impacts. Like its rival, the Dinka Blista Compact, the front wheel drive system causes understeer. Although top speed is acceptable on the Uranus, the small V6 engine is quite underpowered. The Uranus is also the most lightweight car in the game, according to the game files. The weight is only 1300kg compare to 1400kg of the Blista Compact.

GTA V

The Uranus does not appear as a controllable vehicle in GTA V, but several wrecked versions can be found around San Andreas. The vehicle's handling can be found in the game's files, suggesting it may have been a controllable vehicle at some point during development.

Locations

GTA San Andreas

Uranus Pink

The uniquely colored Uranus found in Zeroing In.

GTA IV + Episodes from Liberty City

Glitch

  • In GTA IV, the Russian Mafia variant has a visual glitch where the exhaust pipe is on the opposite side of the car. Also noticeable is the trail of exhaust coming out of the original and correct place.

Trivia

General

  • The Uranus plays the following radio stations by default when entered:
  • Uranus is a planet in the Solar System. It is pronounced, "you rain us", however, people tend to mispronounce it or to jokingly use the word as a crude reference to the term "your anus". Considering Rockstar Games' long history of crude references, "your anus" is possibly the intended pronounciation.

GTA San Andreas

  • In GTA San Andreas, if the Uranus' rear is damaged, and the taillights are active, a red light can be seen inside the car. It is seen better when viewed from a rear-top angle, however it will not always happen.

GTA IV

  • This car is likely a descendant to the Cossie from the original Grand Theft Auto, which is also based on the Ford Escort.
  • The Burberry cap in the back of the car in GTA IV is mocking chavculture. In the UK, the Uranus' real-life counterpart, the Ford Sierra XR4i, is sometimes considered a "chav car".
  • The Uranus features the Door Ajar Chime in GTA IV, which can be heard with the driver's door open in quiet areas.
  • In The Ballad of Gay Tony's Drug Wars, the Uranus can be found, similar in form to the LOZSPEED version. However these ones don't have the windscreen banner or the four fog lamps or the front.
  • "LOZSPEED" is a possible parody of Neuspeed, an aftermarket parts manufacturer.
  • In GTA IV, the car is front wheel drive, whereas its real-life counterpart, the Ford Sierra RS Cosworth, is all-wheel drive.
