The [[Enus]] '''Cognoscenti''' (Pronounced as ''kon-yuh-shen-tee'') is a luxury full-size sedan appearing in ''[[Grand Theft Auto IV]]'', ''[[Episodes From Liberty City]]'', ''[[Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars]]'', and appearing in'' [[Grand Theft Auto Online]]'' with the [[GTA Online: Executives and Other Criminals]] DLC for PS4, Xbox One and PC versions of the game.
   
The [[Enus]] '''Cognoscenti''' (pronounced as ''Con-Yo-Centi'') is a luxury sedan or limousine appearing in [[Grand Theft Auto IV]], [[Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars]] and [[Grand Theft Auto V]]. 'Enus' is most likely a luxury division of 'Benefactor', as Maybach is to Mercedes-Benz, although this theory may be incorrect as Enus also manufacture both the [[Super Diamond]] and [[Super Drop Diamond]], both resembling Rolls Royces.
+
==Design==
  +
The Cognoscenti is mostly based on the [[wp:Bentley Continental Flying Spur (2005)|Bentley Continental Flying Spur]], and its smooth body type and length resembling a [[wp:Maybach 57 and 62|Maybach Type 57-62]] in nature, as well as its general appearance. It can also be considered to be based on the [https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bentley_Mulsanne_(2010) Bentley Mulsanne] due to its length and wheel design.
   
== Description ==
+
The rear fascia, especially the rear lights, trunk line, and registration plate, take some inspiration from the [[wp:Rover 75|Rover 75]].
=== Design ===
 
The Cognoscenti is mostly based on the [[wp:Maybach 57 and 62|Maybach 62]] and [[wp:Bentley Continental Flying Spur (2005)|Bentley Continental Flying Spur]], in nature as well as its general appearance. To distinguish the car, cues for the front end seem to be taken from cars like the 2005–2013 [[wp:Bentley Continental Flying Spur (2005)|Bentley Continental Flying Spur]] or the 1999–2005 [[wp:Rover 75|Rover 75]]. The rear also has some resemblance of a [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MG_ZT MG ZT] or [[wp:Lancia Thesis|Lancia Thesis]]. Some design cues of the Cognoscenti bear vague likenesses to various Maseratis, most notably the Quattroporte. The car may appear with one-tone or two-tone colors. The Cognoscenti features a wheelbase long enough to qualify for a limousine classification, but is still shorter in length to the [[Stretch]]. Nevertheless, police chatter will refer to the car as a stretch limo. It has the same interior as the [[Schafter]], complete with a [[Benefactor]] logo on the steering wheel.
 
   
All versions in GTA IV come with alarms, but the ones at [[Jimmy Pegorino|Pegorino's]] house do not trigger when the doors are opened. Like the [[Turismo]] at [[Mikhail Faustin|Mikhail Faustin's]] house in [[Beachgate]], [[Broker]], it will trigger when a window is smashed in a full speed collision.The name "Cognoscenti" is probably a parody of Continental.
+
In the game, the Cognoscenti is rather unique, as it features a wheelbase long enough to qualify for a limousine classification, but is still shorter in length to the [[Stretch]]. The Cognoscenti has hard-to-see front turning lights that are located above the external headlights as small, white lights. The car may appear with monotone or two-tone colors, which one is on the sides and a second one on the middle, in the upper side of the car. Interestingly, the car has the same interior as the [[Schafter]], complete with a [[Benefactor]] logo on the steering wheel.
   
For the GTA Chinatown Wars rendition, the design of the car has been reduced in size to that of a standard four-door sedan, but retains many of its GTA IV design cues, such as the two-tone body color and fascia design.

The original Cognoscenti returns from ''Grand Theft Auto IV'', as well as a newer version, the [[Cognoscenti 55]], a shorter, more compact version of the vehicle. Both vehicles have a "Standard" and "[[Cognoscenti (Armored)|Armored]]" variant.

=== ''Grand Theft Auto IV'' ===
  +
In GTA IV, the Cognoscenti is one of the larger cars in the game, with an exceptionally long body for a sedan. The weight and length of the car make it more of a vanity vehicle than one useful for missions; its handling is inferior to other sedans found throughout the city. However, its top speed of 200mph (321km/h){{Fact}} is considerable and acceleration is also on-par with other sedans (0-60 in 7.4 seconds){{Fact}}.
   
=== Performance ===
+
However, it boasts a powerful engine and a rear-wheel-drive configuration, so slides and over-steer can be achieved. The suspension has a good balance of soft/firm, which irons out bumps in the road, meaning that the car doesn't over-compensate over the bumps, whilst not jarring over them either. The car is slightly clunky in the corners, but given time, has superior straight line speed. This car is a good option for loading up several people and making a fast getaway car, but in the corners one can easily crash and get caught. Lastly, the cars mass makes it useful as well against both police cars and [[Police Roadblocks|roadblocks]].

=== ''Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars'' ===
 
The GTA Chinatown Wars rendition is more maneuverable, given its shorter wheelbase and size, allowing the car to accelerate faster and steer around corners more easily. Other considerable features include its responsive brakes and burnout capability. This makes the Cognoscenti one of the better four-door sedans in the game.

The Cognoscenti's large engine offers decent speed, but at the cost of general versatility. It has above average acceleration and a high top speed for the class. Handling, however, is distinctly boatish and slow to respond. The mixture of weight, long wheelbase, and low cornering angle causes the Cognoscenti to have a dreadful cornering radius, and very slow response time. Crash deformation is excellent, owing in part to its large mass which absorbs the majority of the hit and keeps it off the more important parts. Braking is sub-par overall.
* [[Tony Black|Anthony&nbsp;"Tony Black" Spoleto]], the Ancelotti's capo, owns a unique dark blue Cognoscenti (befittingly), which is blown up in "[[Actions Speak Louder than Words]]". The car cannot be stolen due to it's doors being locked.
 
* A unique baby blue Cognoscenti is requested in [[Stevie's Car Thefts]]. The car will be constantly spawn in [[Alderney City]], [[Alderney]] until it is delivered to [[Stevie]], allowing the player to store one at their safehouse before delivering another copy to Stevie.
 
* A uniquely pearl white-painted Cognoscenti can be stolen outside [[Gracie Ancelotti|Gracie Ancelotti's]] home in Alderney City approximately two weeks after the player completes "[[Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend]]", when she appears as a [[Random Characters|random character]]. The car will be parked in the driveway to the house, and will keep respawning until the mission is completed, so the player can take it without doing the mission. Sometimes when the player activates the cheat to spawn a Cognoscenti, a pearl white one will appear.
 
* During "[[Mr and Mrs Bellic]]", there is a gray and black Cognoscenti with a wedding ribbon over the front of the car's bonnet parked up outside the church which the player is required to head to. If the player approaches the car, the next cutscene will play and it will be unobtainable. However, it is possible to take the car by firing a weapon while across the street, scaring off the guests and failing the mission. The same Cognoscenti is featured in both of the [[A Revenger's Tragedy|final]] [[Out of Commission|missions]], sans the ribbon but there you can obtain it by take it and drive to the Alderney safehouse.
 
* In [[The Lost and Damned]], a unique red Cognoscenti is obtainable during "[[Phone Ho]]'" for "[[Stubbs' Dirty Laundry]]", during which a politician rides it to pick up a prostitute. If the player is quick enough, they can take it after the mission and save it.

The Enus Cognoscenti (Pronounced as kon-yuh-shen-tee) is a luxury full-size sedan appearing in Grand Theft Auto IV, Episodes From Liberty City, Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, and appearing in Grand Theft Auto Online with the GTA Online: Executives and Other Criminals DLC for PS4, Xbox One and PC versions of the game.

DesignEdit

The Cognoscenti is mostly based on the Bentley Continental Flying Spur, and its smooth body type and length resembling a Maybach Type 57-62 in nature, as well as its general appearance. It can also be considered to be based on the Bentley Mulsanne due to its length and wheel design.

The rear fascia, especially the rear lights, trunk line, and registration plate, take some inspiration from the Rover 75.

In the game, the Cognoscenti is rather unique, as it features a wheelbase long enough to qualify for a limousine classification, but is still shorter in length to the Stretch. The Cognoscenti has hard-to-see front turning lights that are located above the external headlights as small, white lights. The car may appear with monotone or two-tone colors, which one is on the sides and a second one on the middle, in the upper side of the car. Interestingly, the car has the same interior as the Schafter, complete with a Benefactor logo on the steering wheel.

All versions in GTA IV come with alarms, but the ones at Jimmy Pegorino's house do not trigger when the doors are opened.

For Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, the design of the car has been reduced in size to that of a standard four-door sedan, but retains many of its GTA IV design cues, such as the two-tone body color and fascia design.

The car makes a return in Grand Theft Auto Online as part of the GTA Online: Executives and Other Criminals update in several variants. The original Cognoscenti returns from Grand Theft Auto IV, as well as a newer version, the Cognoscenti 55, a shorter, more compact version of the vehicle. Both vehicles have a "Standard" and "Armored" variant.

Performance Edit

Grand Theft Auto IV Edit

In GTA IV, the Cognoscenti is one of the larger cars in the game, with an exceptionally long body for a sedan. The weight and length of the car make it more of a vanity vehicle than one useful for missions; its handling is inferior to other sedans found throughout the city. However, its top speed of 200mph (321km/h)[citation/verification needed] is considerable and acceleration is also on-par with other sedans (0-60 in 7.4 seconds)[citation/verification needed].

However, it boasts a powerful engine and a rear-wheel-drive configuration, so slides and over-steer can be achieved. The suspension has a good balance of soft/firm, which irons out bumps in the road, meaning that the car doesn't over-compensate over the bumps, whilst not jarring over them either. The car is slightly clunky in the corners, but given time, has superior straight line speed. This car is a good option for loading up several people and making a fast getaway car, but in the corners one can easily crash and get caught. Lastly, the cars mass makes it useful as well against both police cars and roadblocks.

Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars Edit

The GTA Chinatown Wars rendition is more maneuverable, given its shorter wheelbase and size, allowing the car to accelerate faster and steer around corners more easily. Other considerable features include its responsive brakes and burnout capability. This makes the Cognoscenti one of the better four-door sedans in the game.

Grand Theft Auto OnlineEdit

The Cognoscenti's large engine offers decent speed, but at the cost of general versatility. It has above average acceleration and a high top speed for the class. Handling, however, is distinctly boatish and slow to respond. The mixture of weight, long wheelbase, and low cornering angle causes the Cognoscenti to have a dreadful cornering radius, and very slow response time. Crash deformation is excellent, owing in part to its large mass which absorbs the majority of the hit and keeps it off the more important parts. Braking is sub-par overall.

Variants Edit

Grand Theft Auto IV Edit

  • Anthony "Tony Black" Spoleto, the Ancelotti's capo, owns a unique dark blue Cognoscenti, which is blown up in "Actions Speak Louder than Words". The car cannot be stolen due to its doors being locked.
  • A unique baby blue Cognoscenti is requested in Stevie's Car Thefts. The car will be constantly spawn next to the Alderney Museum in Alderney City, Alderney until it is delivered to Stevie, allowing the player to store one at their safehouse before delivering another copy.
  • A uniquely pearl white-painted Cognoscenti can be stolen outside Gracie Ancelotti's home in Alderney City approximately two weeks after the player completes "Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend", when she appears as a random character. The car will be parked in the driveway to the house, and will keep respawning until the mission is completed, so the player can take it without doing the mission.
  • During "Mr and Mrs Bellic", there is a gray and black Cognoscenti with a wedding ribbon over the front of the car's bonnet parked up outside the church which the player is required to head to. If the player approaches the car, the next cutscene will play and it will be unobtainable. However, it is possible to take the car by firing a weapon while across the street, scaring off the guests and failing the mission. The same Cognoscenti is featured in both A Revenger's Tragedy and Out of Commission, sans the ribbon, but there the player can obtain it by taking it and drive to a safehouse.
  • In The Lost and Damned, a unique red Cognoscenti is obtainable during "Phone Ho'" for "Stubbs' Dirty Laundry", during which a politician rides it to pick up a prostitute. If the player is quick enough, they can take it after the mission and save it, or simply sniping the politician, but that will result in mission' failure.

Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars Edit

  • Uncle Kenny loans a purple-and-white Cognoscenti to Huang Lee in Pursuit Farce. Other than its color (which is not seen on other Cognoscentis) and its bigger size, it's virtually the same.
  • A gang variant of the Cognoscenti exists, being used by the "Mob" in Algonquin, and is distinguished by its larger size, an all-dark gray body color, and a sunroof.
  • Rudy D'Avanzo drives away in a bulletproof grey-and-white Cognoscenti after Grave Situation and uses the same one (no longer bulletproof) as a getaway car in A Rude Awakening.
  • During Evidence Dash, after stealing Heston's car, the Cognoscentis with sirens will follow and try to kill the player. Although having a siren, it is impossible turn it off. If the player stores the car in a garage, the siren will disappear, making it a normal Cognoscenti.
  • There is also a rare wedding version that is found randomly outside of Wade Heston's house. NOTE: It does not appear every time. It is purely random. [citation/verification needed]

TriviaEdit

GeneralEdit

  • The name "Cognoscenti" is probably a parody of Continental.
  • In Italian, Cognoscente means a connoisseur or an expert in a certain field, usually the fine arts, while cognoscenti is the plural form of the word.
  • The word Cognoscenti could be a sexual reference to the Spanish "coño" meaning "cunt" and "cento" meaning "one hundred". This would result in the whole name meaning "one hundred cunts". This could be one of Rockstar Games' many sexual references.
  • The default radio stations for the Cognoscenti are:
  • The GTA IV model also appears in Rockstar's Max Payne 3 as a car in repairing process.
    CognoscentiWreak-MP3

    The Cognoscenti wreck in Max Payne 3.

Grand Theft Auto IVEdit

  • The GTA IV Cognoscenti is equipped with a GPS system with a female voice, but only if the player leaves the "selected cars" (default) option in the audio menu.
  • The Cognoscenti comes with a door-ajar chime, which can be heard when door is open in quiet areas with volume turned up.
  • Although the Cognoscenti is a luxury sedan, the police mentions it as a limo. This means the Cognoscenty might be a very short limo, much shorter than the Stretch E.

Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown WarsEdit

  • In Chinatown Wars there's a glitch that happens with this car. In Meadows Park, there's always a house with a Cognoscenti in front of its garage, so the player can pick it up. Then, one must drive around Meadows Park and when a house with a little garden and a ramp in it is visible, one can get into the garden. Later, he/she must put the car in the side that's closer to the wall and finally, one have to stay there for a few seconds. The result is that the car will teleport to the road again.

Grand Theft Auto OnlineEdit

  • Despite the car previously not appearing in the game, there are rims similar to the Cognoscenti's ones available in Los Santos Customs. However, the vehicle made a return for the GTA Online: Executives and Other Criminals, including its armored variant and the Cognoscenti 55.
  • The Cognoscenti features unique noise-cancelling glass. Virtually sounding out vehicles passing by, and rain and the engine sound, to an extent. Though for some reason, the voices of pedestrians remain the same.
  • Unlike it's two other variants, the Cognoscenti does not feature two license plates.
  • Like the Cognoscenti 55, the Cognoscenti emits a startup chime after igniting the engine. This is most audible when in cockpit view.
