"Nothing says post-irony like a retro futuristic American jelly bean car. Small with a wide glass ass to showcase your samurai bun and allow for 360 degree Snapmatic photography."

The Declasse Rhapsody is a two-door hatchback, first appearing in the Grand Theft Auto IV episodic expansion The Lost and Damned and returning in Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online as part of the I'm Not a Hipster update.

Design

The Lost and Damned

The car is based on the infamous AMC Pacer manufactured from 1970-75, while the front is designed after the Volkswagen Golf Mk1. The wheels appear to be aftermarket, bearing a resemblance to American Racing Ansen Sprint mag wheels.

Grand Theft Auto V

Its appearance in Grand Theft Auto V is mostly unchanged, with the exception of whitewall tires added by default, and the optional customization features in Los Santos Customs. New body modification options include a ducktail spoiler, fender flares, and a bumper lip, a reference to the original Volkswagen Golf GTI.

Performance

The Lost and Damned

The car handles similarly to the Blista Compact, although the Rhapsody is an FR layout vehicle, (as opposed to the Blista Compact's FF layout) with more reasonable torque, and lower top speed. Its handling is very good, as its light weight and stiff suspension allow it to take turns at a high speed with almost no oversteer. However, crash deformation is poor, and as expected from a vehicle of this size and weight, its engine will fail after 3-4 head-on crashes. It is, however, very back-heavy and is prone to spinouts, but this trait can be good for drifting in the hands of experienced drivers.

Grand Theft Auto V

The Rhapsody's performance virtually is unchanged in GTA V, with only minor alterations to the vehicle's rigidity and nimble-feeling, where it now feels more stiff and stable, as oppose to TLAD's rendition where thr car felt slightly more loose and suspended.

Variants

In TLAD, there is a robin egg blue Rhapsody in the mission Off Route. The car is across the street from the player after the starting cutscene. The player can obtain this uniquely colored vehicle by parking it at any safehouse without harming the completion of the mission. A tip to obtain this is to park it outside the Bellic Penthouse on Albany Avenue.

Trivia

General

  • The Rhapsody's name is a reference to the 1992 film Wayne's World, specifically the famous scene where the two lead characters, Wayne and Garth, sing along to the song "Bohemian Rhapsody" by Queen while driving in the "Mirthmobile" (an AMC Pacer). A photograph can be seen within the Rhapsody depicting Wayne and Garth. Furthermore, a "W" (as in "Wayne's World") is seen badged inside and outside the car, also the photo says "Schwing", one of the catch phases used by Wayne and Garth in the movie.
    • In GTA V, the sticker in the Rhapsody has been removed.
  • The default radio stations for the Rhapsody are:
  • The Rhapsody looks similar to a vehicle featured in the 2006 Atari game Driver: Parallel Lines, which was also called the Rhapsody.
