"Blurring the lines between an automobile and an English aristocrat's mansion, this is a car that could even give a nu-metal fan an air of class and taste. The bumbling manufacturer made the aerodynamics so poor and the chassis so heavy that its dual-turbo engine can barely get it to a kerb-crawl, but that's part of (or all of) its British charm."
legendarymotorsport.net description

The Windsor is a two-door convertible in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online. It is manufactured by Enus in the HD Universe.

Design

3D Universe

The Windsor is designed as a 1960s to early 1970s classic convertible sports car, appearing with either its black top up or down. The car resembles a late 60s - mid 70's Jaguar E-Type or TVR S Series, but features a stretched rear and a generally longer proportion. The front seems to be based on the 1964-1966 Ferrari America 500 Superfast. It also has some attributes from the Chevrolet Corvette Ray Convertible, for example, the roof or the exhaust's shape.

HD Universe

The Windsor returned in Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online as part of the Ill-Gotten Gains Part 1 DLC update. This time it appears as a modern, much larger coupe, taking heavy influence from the Rolls Royce Ghost and the Rolls Royce Wraith, and some other elements from the Bentley Flying Spur. The car takes a contemporary coupe body design, with an upraised hood. The car is also the first car in the series to feature multiple designer liveries (eight in total), which can be applied to the exterior of the car, similar to the vinyl wrapping process. The vinyls available are:

  • Sessanta Nove Monogram
  • Sessanta Nove Multi-Color
  • Sessanta Nove Geometric
  • Perseus Wings Monogram
  • Perseus Green Wings Monogram
  • Santo Capra Python
  • Santo Capra Cheetah
  • Yeti Mall Ninja

When purchasing from Legendarymotorsport.net, the player can only order the vehicle with a livery, however in Story Mode the vehicle appears without a livery in the protagonists' garages (original edition only). The livery can be changed or removed at Los Santos Customs.The vinyl wrap will be affected by the base primary and secondary colour paint.

Performance

GTA: San Andreas

The Windsor is a fast car; however, it does not match up to some of the "elite" cars. The Windsor's engine is very loud, giving out a throaty roar, sounding more like a V8 than the 4 cylinder engine that came in all Alfa Romeo Spiders or the 6 cylinder/V12 that came in the all Jaguar E-Types but the engine was close enough to the TVR S series with V8 configuration. Acceleration and speed is on par. Cornering is very difficult, as the car seems to be much heavier than it looks. It also tends to subtly fishtail or drift, despite running at mid speeds, though experienced players can control its drifting capabilities.

GTA V

The Windsor has a powerful V12 engine under the hood, which has a unique engine sound. Performance wise, the Windsor is middle-range for the coupes class, sporting an acceleration time between the Oracle (which is best in class), and the Felon. Top speed is fair, with it being able to keep up with most of the vehicles in the coupes class, and even some of the sports cars. Handling is fair, but the Windsor is very heavy, so it may struggle during high-speed cornering. Braking is average for the coupes class.

Trivia

General

  • The default radio stations of the Windsor are:
  • Its name may be inspired from the Windsor family, which is the name of United Kingdom's royal family, asserting its British origins.
    • This is further evidenced for the vehicle in Grand Theft Auto V, which is manufactured by British car manufacturer Enus. Windsor, being the name of a royal family also fits the luxury aspect of the vehicle.

GTA: San Andreas

  • Oddly enough, the front license plate is mounted so that it partly obstructs the engine's main source of air. This is most likely a developer's oversight.

GTA V

  • The Windsor in GTA V has a unique horn, which is not found on any other car in the game.
    • Its horn sound is very similar to the Stafford's horn in GTA San Andreas and Marbelle in GTA IV.
