The [[Declasse]] Sabre in GTA IV has been revamped and appears to be based on the 1978-1988 [[wp:GM G platform (RWD)|GM G-body]]. The headlights and front fascia are based on the 1982-1987 [[wp:Buick Regal|Buick Regal]], while the grille is taken from the 1983-1988 [[wp:Chevrolet Monte Carlo|Chevrolet Monte Carlo]]. The front fascia overall bears resemblance to [[wp:Dodge 400|Dodge 400]] and [[wp:Dodge 600|600]]. They are, however, personal luxury coupés instead. The sides, side windows and rear end are unmistakably derived from the Monte Carlo as well, but the taillights seem to be a combination of the Monte Carlo's and the Regals taillights.Additional features include decals on the sides (highly reminiscent of the Monte Carlo SS). They read "Sabre 550SS".

The Sabre is one of a few cars in GTA IV that can be found as a [[Wrecks|beater]] - a rusted out version of the original car that has a ragged out engine that randomly backfires when shifting gears, as well as featuring junky/shoddy bodywork, rusted out parts, occasionally missing headlights and grilles, and jutting exhaust pipes.

Acceleration and speed are very impressive due to its V8 engine. The Sabre's handling is arguably among the best in GTA San Andreas, and the brakes are excellent. The torque is very good as well. However, being the rear-drive muscle car it is, this vehicle's drive-train is overpowered, leading to occasional burnout and fishtailing, and a general decline in performance in wet weather. Its frame is sturdy and can take a fair amount of damage, but its intense power and heavy construction result in the car's disability to survive very few high-speed collisions.

===Version History Gallery===
The [[Declasse]] Sabre features a 550ci V8, coupled to a 5 speed gearbox in RWD configuration. Acceleration is good, although not impressive, and its top speed of 170 mph(275 km/h) is pretty good. Due to the heavy frame and very soft suspension, the Sabre practically lollops through turns, with a vague and numb sense of direction, making over-steer common. Braking is fair, although the lack of ABS hinders the already mediocre performance of the Sabre. Crash deformation is very good, thanks to the heavy frame of the Sabre. The car can take many direct hits before stalling or catching fire.

The [[Sabre Turbo]] is a derivative of the Sabre in GTA Vice City and GTA Vice City Stories which is distinguished by a white stripe and, in GTA Vice City, a red body color. A similarly designed variant, the [[Cholo Sabre]], is a gang car in GTA Vice City Stories that is similar to the game's Sabre Turbo, but features a permanent body color, which is yellow with a white stripe in GTA Vice City Stories.

While the Sabre in GTA IV assumes a more modern appearance, the [[Sabre GT]] takes the role of the classic muscle car that the Sabre was in the GTA III era.

The Sabre Turbo (known as the Sabre GT in ''[[Grand Theft Auto IV|GTA IV]]'' and ''[[Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars|GTA Chinatown Wars]]'') is a derivative of the Sabre, distinguished by a characteristic racing stripe. It also appeared in ''[[Grand Theft Auto V]]''.
* The inside of the GTA IV Sabre's headlights says "Endo".

* The name "Sabre" is further evidence that the car is based on the [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oldsmobile_Cutlass Oldsmobile Cutlass], as a Sabre and a Cutlass are both types of swords.

A similarly designed variant to the Sabre Turbo, the Cholo Sabre, is a gang car in ''GTA Vice City Stories'', similar to the game's Sabre Turbo but with a permanent body color of yellow with a white stripe. The Sabre GT in ''GTA IV'' retains its classic muscle car appearance, despite the game's basic Sabre being based on a more modern vehicle.

There is a Green variant of the Sabre which takes a major role in the storyline of ''[[Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas|GTA San Andreas]]''.

The Sabre is a muscle car/sport coupe that appears in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories and Grand Theft Auto IV. It's manufactured by Declasse in the HD Universe.

Design Edit

3D Universe Edit

The Sabre in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories has a resemblance to the 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle, with rear styling from the 1968-1972 Oldsmobile Cutlass. Interestingly, the San Andreas Sabre has 4 taillights while in Vice City and Vice City Stories the Sabre only has 2.

In San Andreas, the Sabre is one of the gang cars for the San Fierro Rifa.

Grand Theft Auto IV Edit

The Sabre in GTA IV has been revamped and appears to be based on the 1978-1988 GM G-body. The headlights and front fascia are based on the 1982-1987 Buick Regal, while the grille is taken from the 1983-1988 Chevrolet Monte Carlo. The front fascia overall bears resemblance to Dodge 400 and 600. They are, however, personal luxury coupés instead. The sides, side windows and rear end are unmistakably derived from the Monte Carlo as well, but the taillights seem to be a combination of the Monte Carlo's and the Regals taillights.Additional features include decals on the sides (highly reminiscent of the Monte Carlo SS). They read "Sabre 550SS".

The Sabre is one of a few cars in that can be found as a beater - a rusted out version of the original car that has a ragged out engine that randomly backfires when shifting gears, as well as featuring junky/shoddy bodywork, rusted out parts, occasionally missing headlights and grilles, and jutting exhaust pipes. Standard Sabres in GTA IV do not have hood scoops. However, beater Sabres feature cowl induction hoods.

After collecting all thirty cars for Stevie, he agrees to purchase cars from Niko Bellic, with the Sabre fetching $2,000.

Performance Edit

3D Universe Edit

Acceleration and speed are very impressive due to its V8 engine. The Sabre's handling is arguably among the best in GTA San Andreas, and the brakes are excellent. The torque is very good as well. However, being the rear-drive muscle car it is, this vehicle's drive-train is overpowered, leading to occasional burnout and fishtailing, and a general decline in performance in wet weather. Its frame is sturdy and can take a fair amount of damage, but its intense power and heavy construction result in the car's disability to survive very few high-speed collisions.

Grand Theft Auto IV Edit

The Sabre features a 550ci V8, coupled to a 5 speed gearbox in RWD configuration. Acceleration is good, although not impressive, and its top speed is pretty good. Due to the heavy frame and very soft suspension, the Sabre practically lollops through turns, with a vague and numb sense of direction, making over-steer common. Braking is fair, given its design. Crash deformation is very good, thanks to the heavy frame of the Sabre. The car can take many direct hits before stalling or catching fire.

Variants Edit

Sabre TurboEdit

Main article: Sabre Turbo

The Sabre Turbo (known as the Sabre GT in GTA IV and GTA Chinatown Wars) is a derivative of the Sabre, distinguished by a characteristic racing stripe. It also appeared in Grand Theft Auto V.

Cholo SabreEdit

Main article: Cholo Sabre

A similarly designed variant to the Sabre Turbo, the Cholo Sabre, is a gang car in GTA Vice City Stories, similar to the game's Sabre Turbo but with a permanent body color of yellow with a white stripe. The Sabre GT in GTA IV retains its classic muscle car appearance, despite the game's basic Sabre being based on a more modern vehicle.

"The Green Sabre"Edit

There is a Green variant of the Sabre which takes a major role in the storyline of GTA San Andreas. Frank TenpennyEddie PulaskiBig Smoke, and Ryder acquired the car and used it for a drive-by shooting at Sweet's House.

Later on the game, in the mission of the same name, the Varrios Los Aztecas leader Cesar Vialpando later discovers the Green Sabre and the people associated with it and soon contacts Carl to inform him. This is the last time the Green Sabre is seen.

Trivia Edit

GeneralEdit

3D UniverseEdit

  • In a GTA Vice City trailer, a Sabre Turbo was seen with a split grille and double tail light; regular Sabres are also seen with split grilles in early screenshots - much like the car it is based on (a 1970 Cutlass). This feature was omitted in the final design of the car.
  • The Sabre in GTA San Andreas bears a striking resemblance to the car driven by Tanner in Driver. There are only some minor differences, such as the slight 'fold' on the rear trunk.
  • In the beta version of GTA San Andreas, the Sabre had the same design as Vice City's and had the engine sound of a Slamvan.

HD UniverseEdit

  • Standard Sabres in GTA IV feature their front license plate on the left side of the front bumper, while beater variants sport their front license plates in the middle.
  • Despite having two textures of the "Sabre" lettering for each side, the text is mistakenly mirrored on the right side.
