- "The legendary Swedish four door sedan. All the boxy design of a 1980s Vulcar, with none of the reliability. For lovers of tight jeans, micro breweries, and 70s cop shows."
- ―Southernsanandreassuperautos.com description.
The Warrener is implied to have a Swedish origin, but it draws most of its traits from the Japanese vehicles. The Warrener is heavily based on the Japanese designs of the Nissan Skyline GTR KGC10, Datsun 510 (Bluebird), and the first year of the Toyota Corolla KE70. The car's front fascia is a heavy mix of those from the Peugeot 504 and Nissan Skyline C10. The chassis brings a mixed resemblance from the Datsun 510 and Volvo 144. The sideview mirror placement has a resemblance of the Toyota Century's.
The Warrener has high acceleration and a good top speed for the class. Its potent 6-cylinder engine has the second-highest torque in the class, just behind the Super Diamond, but unfortunately this results in the car being prone to spinouts, requiring careful driving to maintain traction. Otherwise, the handling is responsive and quick due to the car's light weight and excellent braking. Still, addition of the spoiler mod is recommended to keep the car planted. Crash deformation is poor but the engine can take several direct hits before failing.

- Although the description implies that the Warrener is considered a Swedish vehicle (probably meant to parody the Volvo 240), its overall appearance bears more of a distinctive Japanese style to it, specifically the Nissan 2400GT (HGLC10).
- This continues the HD universe blending of Nissan and Volvo into the Vulcar brand, started with the Ingot which blends Volvo 850 and Nissan Stagea wagons.
- In the 1960's, many Japanese auto designs were strongly influenced by (or even copies) of European designs, so although this does look like the original GTR, that also means it looks like a Volvo.
- When turbo is installed in the Warrener, rather than featuring a blow-off valve that creates a distinct "hiss" sound when letting off the accelerator, it will feature compressor surges, creating a fluttering "whistle" sound. Several other classics and tuners in the game also have this feature.
- Police chatter identifies the car as an Annis vehicle, when in fact it is manufactured by Vulcar. This is likely a developer's mistake, although Annis is notably based on Nissan, who manufactures the 1970 Nissan 2400GT on which the Warrener is based. This is possibly a reference to Nissan's sale of the 210 in the United States under the pseudonym of "Datsun" during the 1970s.
- The engine looks like Nissan's real-life RB engine, with the exclusion of twin-turbo. This is because naturally aspirated RB engine is a popular engine swap options among vintage Skyline owners/enthusiasts. This is further asserted by the front grille "2600LX" badge, which means that this car's engine is probably based on Nissan's RB26 engine with the twin-turbo removed.
- But when the exposed intercooler option is installed, a twin-turbo setup will appear, making the engine almost accurate to the RB26DETT version instead.
- Its wheels resemble the famous RS Watanabe eight-spoke wheels, which is again, popular in import culture. The same wheels can be found on the Futo, an AE86-inspireed coupe and the Youga.
- The Warrener is also the first vehicle in Grand Theft Auto V to have taped headlights modifications. This modification was popular in the late 1960s and 1970s Japanese race cars, gymkhana and rally cars.
- Furthermore, some other modifications that can be applied to this car (such as the Shakotan exhaust and Grachan hood) appear to be inspired by the Shakotan car scene, a car style originating in Japan.
- The interior features an automatic transmission gear lever.
- The Warrener, like several other vehicles, does not contain reverse lights.
- When installing a Lip or Ducktail spoiler, the "Warrener" badge will become partially covered.
- This vehicle shares the engine sound with the Rat-Loader and the beater Rebel, but with a cleaner tone.
- You can customize the car into a folkrace car (a homemade racecar) by removing bumpers, grille and trim, installing roll bars etc. This is most likely because old Volvos, Toyotas and Datsuns (on which the car is based, or at least is a parody of) are very popular vehicles in folkrace.
- Strangely, 5 inlet pipes can be seen within the inlet manifold, but 6 exhaust pipes within the exhaust manifold, which is an unbalanced amount of pipes.
- The crew emblem fitted to the Warrener is significantly larger than other vehicles' emblems.
