The vehicle returns in ''Grand Theft Auto V'' and ''Grand Theft Auto Online'' as part of the [[Ill-Gotten Gains Part 1]] update, keeping the large coupé body style from its previous appearances but otherwise being totally different. Now manufactured by [[Albany]], the vehicle's general body style is inspired by the [[wp:Cadillac Eldorado#Sixth generation (1967-1970)|sixth generation Cadillac Eldorado]] and the [[wp:Lincoln_Continental_Mark_III|Lincoln Continental Mark III]] - [[wp:Lincoln_Continental_Mark_IV|Mark IV]], the front grille and headlights resembling a [[wp:Chrysler_Newport|1967 Chrysler Newport]] and the rear resembling a 1968 Newport, with available modifications adding a very pronounced rear mounted spare tire and rear wheel arch covers and some design cues from early 1970s [[wp:Cadillac_Eldorado#Seventh_generation_.281971.E2.80.931978.29|Cadillac Eldorado]] models.

Powering the rear wheels of the Virgo is a 5.8-litre normally-aspirated small block V8, coupled with a 5-speed gearbox. The engine feels rather restricted in terms of power, resulting in rather torpid acceleration mid-range. This shortage of brute force doesn't seem to have limited the top speed to such a degree; this will top 145 mph. One thing this car can do exceptionally well is corner. Despite being a large, ungainly classic American car, when pushed to the limit it is perfectly capable of attacking corners vigorously with just the mere suggestion of oversteer, being an ideal weapon of choice in classic car races. It also glides around bends with such docility when driving in a relaxed fashion, though even at low speeds body roll can be pronounced. Old drums behind the wheels make for rather poor braking, and only very few Virgos have fully functioning ABS.

The Virgo in GTA V has improved speed and handling compared to its GTA IV counterpart, although its acceleration is bested by the [[Blade (car)|Blade]]. While somewhat slower than other muscle cars when not upgraded, the Virgo doesn't produce understeer when tackling sharp corners and can be easily recovered when it begins to drift. Durability is acceptable against frontal collisions from other traffic and obstacles, though the latter result would make the vehicle launch forward which can be troublesome. Braking power excels well for a somewhat-heavy muscle car.

Not to be confused with the Vigero, a vehicle with a similar name featuring in GTA IV and GTA V.


"In a postwar car industry awash with fins, scoops and ornamental hubcaps the Virgo stood out as something more composed and thoughtful. Don't let the rhino-horn fittings, onboard minibar and the fact that it handles like a shipping container on shopping cart wheels deceive you: this is as close as the American car industry has ever come to elegance."
Legendarymotorsport.net description, GTA V.

The Virgo is a two-door car featured in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, Grand Theft Auto IV, Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online. In the HD Universe, the vehicle is manufactured by Dundreary in Grand Theft Auto IV and Albany in Grand Theft Auto V.

DesignEdit

GTA Vice City — GTA Vice City Stories Edit

Between GTA Vice City and GTA Vice City Stories, the Virgo is depicted as a luxury two-door American coupe, resembling a 1977–1979 Mercury Cougar, combined with a 1977-1979 Lincoln Continental Mark V, the front of the Virgo is also similar to the front of the 1979-1981 Chrysler New Yorker. The side windows, front end and bulge on the trunk resemble the Cougar; the taillights resemble those of the Continental Mark V, albeit with some lights missing. In terms of color choices, the Virgo may come with a variety of colors for the vinyl landau depending on the body color, including black, brown, cream, white, or in GTA Vice City Stories' case, the same matching color as the body's.

GTA IVEdit

In GTA IV, the Virgo (with a Dundreary brand) is based on a 1977-1979 Mercury Cougar with some minor hints of a 1977-79 Lincoln Mark V. The taillights are similar to both 1977-79 Ford Thunderbird and Mercury Cougar. The rear is also quite similar to the Remington from GTA San Andreas. There is also a special two tone Virgo that Little Jacob owns.

GTA V Edit

The vehicle returns in Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online as part of the Ill-Gotten Gains Part 1 update, keeping the large coupé body style from its previous appearances but otherwise being totally different. Now manufactured by Albany, the vehicle's general body style is inspired by the sixth generation Cadillac Eldorado and the Lincoln Continental Mark III - Mark IV, the front grille and headlights resembling a 1967 Chrysler Newport and the rear resembling a 1968 Newport, with available modifications adding a very pronounced rear mounted spare tire and rear wheel arch covers and some design cues from early 1970s Cadillac Eldorado models.

Performance Edit

GTA Vice City — GTA Vice City Stories Edit

In the 3D Universe, the Virgo possesses generally average performance credentials, with moderate acceleration, responsive steering, and a mediocre top speed. Its weight and crash endurance are unremarkable.

GTA IVEdit

Powering the rear wheels of the Virgo is a 5.8-litre normally-aspirated small block V8, coupled with a 5-speed gearbox. The engine feels rather restricted in terms of power, resulting in rather torpid acceleration mid-range. This shortage of brute force doesn't seem to have limited the top speed to such a degree; this will top 153 mph(245 kph). One thing this car can do exceptionally well is corner. Despite being a large, ungainly classic American car, when pushed to the limit it is perfectly capable of attacking corners vigorously with just the mere suggestion of oversteer, being an ideal weapon of choice in classic car races. It also glides around bends with such docility when driving in a relaxed fashion, though even at low speeds body roll can be pronounced. Old drums behind the wheels make for rather poor braking, and only very few Virgos have fully functioning ABS.

GTA VEdit

The Virgo in GTA V has improved speed and handling compared to its GTA IV counterpart, although its acceleration is bested by the Blade. While somewhat slower than other muscle cars when not upgraded, the Virgo doesn't produce understeer when tackling sharp corners and can be easily recovered when it begins to drift. Durability is acceptable against frontal collisions from other traffic and obstacles, though the latter result would make the vehicle launch forward which can be troublesome. Braking power excels well for a somewhat-heavy muscle car.

Variant Edit

Virgo-GTA4-LittleJacob-front

Little Jacob's unique Virgo in GTA IV.

In GTA IV, Little Jacob drives a uniquely colored maroon-and-black Virgo which he uses to sell and transport firearms from the trunk.

Little Jacob's Virgo is available to the player in the beginning of "Concrete Jungle". Niko is able to take it to his safehouse and complete the mission in another car. You can also obtain the Virgo when you have escaped the cops in "Russian Revolution", you can drive to your safehouse, and complete the mission in another vehicle.

Niko can also find Little Jacob's Virgo at a an unnamed church in Suffolk in the mission "Mr and Mrs Bellic". It is unobtainable while wearing a suit and tie, because once the player gets close to the car, it triggers a cutscene. You can take it while wearing casual clothes however, because the cut-scene only occurs once you are dressed appropriately.

Locations Edit

GTA Vice City Edit

The vehicle is very rare to find, it's maybe seen in the parking lot in Downtown. It is advisable to drive around in a lower-end car to increase the chances of the car spawning.

GTA San AndreasEdit

  • Sometimes found around east areas of Los Santos.
  • Usually spawns in Doherty and Garcia when driving a low class car.
  • Spawn more often once the Beater/Junk Car traffic cheat has been activated.
  • Occasionally found around Rockshore West, Las Venturas.
  • Found in Ganton, Los Santos.

GTA Vice City Stories Edit

GTA IV + Episodes from Liberty City Edit

GTA V Edit

  • Available in the three protagonists' garages in Story Mode (PS3 and Xbox 360 only)
  • Available from Legendarymotorsport.net for $195,000 in Story Mode and Online (all versions).

Trivia Edit

  • The Virgo cameos in a picture from Starkweather's mansion in Manhunt. Several safehouses in GTA San Andreas have the same picture hanging on the wall (the picture was originally a beta screenshot for GTA Vice City).
  • The above mentioned beta model for GTA Vice City was called the "Cougar", further indicating that the vehicle was based on a Mercury Cougar. The only difference between the "Cougar" beta vehicle and the regular Virgo is that the former retains the full set of taillights from the Lincoln Continental Mark V.
  • The Virgo's name derives from the name of the sixth astrological sign of the Zodiac. It is also the Latin name for the Virgin Mary.
  • The Virgo plays the following radio stations by default when entered:
  • The Virgo in GTA IV resembles the Remington in San Andreas.
  • The Virgo in GTA IV is one of two vehicles to have red rear indicators, along with the Vapid Taxi and Police Cruiser
  • The car may be sold at Stevie's S&M Auto Sales for a maximum of $1,800 (in perfect condition) after completion of Stevie's Car Thefts in GTA IV.
  • Very oddly, the Virgo in the 3D Universe is Front-wheel-drive, which is unusual for a very large V8 or a Lincoln Mark V.
  • Despite the website description saying it has the handling of "a shipping container on shopping car wheels", the Virgo has very good, if not one of the best, handling profiles for the "muscle" class.
  • In GTA V and GTA Online, when the Virgo is purchased from legendarymotorsport.net, it will be supplied with a set of custom sports wheels (pictured on it within the site) instead of stock wheels. The stock wheels can still be purchased at Los Santos Customs.
  • The Virgo is one of the first cars in the series to feature an antilag system, causing the exhaust to continuously misfire when decelerating. It is simply ear candy however and does not appear to enhance the car's performance. The Benefactor Stirling GT also has this same feature.
