Sanitary
"With its squared-off bodywork, sensible engineering and T-Top roof, the Faction has recently begun to lose its historic association with high finance and cases of sexual assault. These days, it's old and cheap enough to attract a generation of you artisans who dream of nothing more than finding an old car and hiring someone else to make it look good. Being a pioneer has never been this easy. Eligible for customization at Benny's Original Motor Works."
Benny's Original Motor Works description.

The Willard Faction is a two-door coupé found in Grand Theft Auto IV, and was later added to Grand Theft Auto Online as part of the Lowriders update.

Design

Grand Theft Auto IV

The Faction is designed as a 1980's American sports coupe, depicted with a T-Top roof and front end fog lights. Some Factions are also equipped with a small hood scoop.

The Faction resembles a 1982-1987 Buick Regal (similar to the Majestic in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas). Details and portions of the design take cues from the Buick Grand National and Regal T-Type.

The Faction appears with many minor cosmetic accessories and adjustments:

  • A version with a primary-coloured roof and glass T-top.
  • A version with a secondary coloured roof and glass T-top.
  • A version with a primary coloured roof and solid T-top.
  • A version with a secondary coloured roof and solid T-top.

V

The car retains its design from Grand Theft Auto IV, using the original box design, and sharing the same influence. The design is higher quality because of GTA V's enhanced graphics and textures.

Performance

Grand Theft Auto IV

Powered by a turbocharged V8 engine, the Faction is a fun car to drive with a high-torque engine up front. Combined with the FR drivetrain, handbrake turns are smooth yet controllable. The brakes have good stopping ability. Its top speed is reached fairly quickly thanks to its light body weight.

True to its badges, the Faction is powered by a single overhead camshaft turbocharged V8, pushing 400HP.

Grand Theft Auto Online

The car is powered by a hefty single overhead camshaft turbocharged V8 with a large air intake centralized on the engine bay. Just like its badges state, a turbocharger is present to the bottom left of the engine.

The car has average performance. The Faction's acceleration is pretty slow and poor for its class, yet still has enough power to backfire when revved, despite this, the car's power is unable to allow good take-off and traction is minimal; the car struggles to drive up gradients more than around 30 degrees. Its top speed is acceptable, and is very similar to its IV generation. Braking is also average, nothing too special but enough to bring the heavy car to a stop in an acceptable amount of time, being much better than the GTA IV variant. The normal version of the Faction is not advised for long-term usage because this vehicle is extremely sensitive to minor imperfections in the road, and has a tendency to be sent into the air because of an imperfection, especially curbs.

The engine sound is rather unique, in that it shares elements (such as the backfiring stages and high-revving stages) from the Dukes, but also has the low-revving/idle sound similar to that of the Blade and Buccaneer. Purchasing a big-bore exhaust will make the engine sound more powerful, as well as giving the car much more horsepower and making the engine sound very similar to the Marshall's.
