"Every once in a while, a car breaks all the rules. It's cutting edge and timeless. It performs exquisitely on the road and effortlessly on the track. It perfectly embodies both your colossal vanity and your desperate insecurity. More than the sum of its parts, the ETR1 is the only car you will ever need to be able to afford again."
Legendary Motorsport description.

The Emperor ETR1 is a two-door endurance racing car featured in Grand Theft Auto Online as part of the Cunning Stunts update.


Grand Theft Auto Online

The vehicle's general shape and front and rear fascia is primarily based on the Lexus LF LC Vision Gran Turismo. The front fascia is based on the Gazoo Racing Lexus LFA, while the bodywork is based on a modified Toyota 86, namely the R&D Sport Subaru BRZ GT300 with minor styling cues from the Toyota FT-1 Concept. The spoiler, B-pillar and roof shape is similar to the Nissan GT-R Nismo GT3, taking the design of a touring car with a livery and several racing modifications.

Like its rivals, the entire underside of the vehicle is carbon plated. A 5-element diffuser is located at the rear of the body. In the center of the diffuser is a brake light at the bottom of the rear fascia. The vehicle has a large carbon fiber spoiler is placed on the rear of the vehicle. On the sides of the rear profiling are large air-flow exits. The car also has side-exit exhausts. In the interior, there is a twin RPM indicator placed on the steering wheel.

Much like the Drift Tampa, Visione, RE-7B, Tyrus, Vagner and Vortex, the ETR1 features the use of racing slicks for the stock rims, as with the previously mentioned vehicles, this has no effect on performance, and is purely cosmetic.

Both liveries have the same sponsors and only differs by the primary one (Kronos or Dense):

The car performs well for its type, surpassing the performance of many other cars in the Supers class. The vehicle has excellent traction thanks to its large spoiler, giving it large amounts of downforce when accelerating, as well as allowing it to retain speed in corners. The vehicle has a lower-revving engine compared to other endurance cars, however it still supplies a large amount of power for its top speed. The engine sounds relatively powerful but certainly isn't as high pitched as the RE-7B or Tyrus.

The engine model appears to be similar to that of the Sultan RS', sharing the same valve covers. The model has 3 pipes on each manifold, making it a V6 engine. It bears oil breathers and a fuel injection port to the left of the model. The model also features cold-air pipes from the Rapid GT.

  • The "Dense" livery for the ETR1 is a reference to the Denso SARD Supra GT livery.
    • Additionally, the "Kronos" livery is a reference to Petronas Motorsport.
    • The brand Kronos is likely chosen as livery brand as reference to Kouros Racing, a Swiss racing entrant which was seen in similar styling on the livery of the Sauber C9 in 1987.
  • If damaged, the ETR1's stock spoiler may detatch from the car. However, a "No Spoiler" option can be applied in Los Santos Customs by removing the spoiler.
  • According to the internal name, it was originally named as "SHEAVA" but was soon changed to ETR1 prior to its release.
    • The file name may be derived from Shiva from its pronunciation, likely named after the Hindu god of the same name.
  • The ETR1 is the first vehicle to be based on a Vision Gran Turismo vehicle; another Vision Gran Turismo-based vehicle is the Nero Custom.
