== 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 ===
 
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 [[wp:Jaguar E-Type#Series 2 (1969-1971)|Jaguar E-Type]] or [[wp:TVR S Series|TVR S Series]], but features a stretched rear and a generally longer proportion. The lights on the front and the shape resemble a 1982-1990 [[wp:Alfa Romeo Spider ( 1982-1990 )|Alfa Romeo Spider]].

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 [[wp:Jaguar E-Type|late 60s - mid 70's Jaguar E-Type]] or [[wp:TVR S Series|TVR S Series]], but features a stretched rear and a generally longer proportion. The front seems to be based on the [[wp:Ferrari America 500 Superfast|1964-1966 Ferrari America 500 Superfast]]. It also has some attributes from the [[wp:Chevrolet Corvette|Chevrolet Corvette Ray Convertible]], for example, the roof or the exhaust's shape.
   
=== Performance ===
 
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 Spiders or the 6 cylinder/V12 that came in the all Jaguar E-Types but the engine was close enough to the TVR S seies 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.

===HD Universe===
  +
The Windsor returned in [[Grand Theft Auto V|''Grand Theft Auto V'']] and [[Grand Theft Auto Online|''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 [[wikipedia:Rolls-Royce_Ghost|Rolls Royce Ghost]] and the [[wikipedia:Rolls-Royce_Wraith_(2013)|Rolls Royce Wraith]], and some other elements from the [[wikipedia:Bentley_Continental_Flying_Spur_(2005)#Flying_Spur_.282013-.29|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.

===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.

* The default radio station in the Windsor is [[Master Sounds 98.3]].

The Windsor does not have unique modifications except for the liveries available, only performance and visual changes present in majority of vehicles.
* In the mission [[Key To Her Heart]], the croupier leaves the shop very quickly. The player does not necessarily need to use this vehicle, but it is the only one in the parking lot. Sometimes, the car you're driving may disappear after leaving the shop, so you may need to take it.
+
* The car may be manufactured by either [[Jugular]] or [[Ocelot]], as both companies are based of Jaguar.

*Oddly, the front license plate is mounted so that it partly obstructs the engine's main source of air.

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.

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.

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.

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.
