The Windsor is a two-door convertible in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.

Description

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 Jaguar E-Type or TVR S Series, but features a stretched rear and a generally longer proportion. The front seems to be based off the 1964-1966 Ferrari America 500 Superfast.

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 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.

Modifications

Being a standard sports car, the Windsor can only be modified at TransFender, which offers the following modifications:

Trivia

  • The default radio station of the Windsor is Master Sounds 98.3.
  • 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 enough, the front license plate is mounted so that it partly obstructs the engine's main source of air.
