A favorite in Mirror Park, this sporty little guy is easy to park. Great handling, anti-lock brakes, and a stereo that only plays power pop hits. Ironically. Go team!
Southern San Andreas Super Autos description.

The Weeny Issi is a two-door soft-top convertible in Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online.


Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online

The design of this car is German in nature and is significantly inspired by the styling of a 2001-2007 Mini Hatch. Its headlamps, however, resemble those of a Porsche 911 (996). The front fascia resembles that of the Fiat 500, albeit with a different grille design. The tail lights are adopted from the Mini Clubman, but also strongly resemble those of a Smart Fortwo, a car known for its tiny size.

The Issi is one of the smallest civilian cars, with a narrow body, compact wheelbase, short length and low height, making it very agile and able to fit through tiny spaces. Its front end is quite predominated by the front bumper, with a black matte portion surrounding the intakes and circular lamps. Chrome housings can be seen on the outer edges, holding the main circular lamps, smaller fog lamps on the inner side (that also work as daytime running lamps) and turn signals below. Thin grilles can be seen in front of the bonnet, also bearing the manufacturer's emblem above.

The sides have a simplistic design, featuring black matte wheel arches, small skirts and rear-view mirror shells finished in carbon fibre and supported by black frames. The greenhouse area features chrome trimmings around the base, black matte framing around the windshield and a soft, retractable roof.

The rear of the car is simplistic as well, featuring a large bumper, a small chrome line on the bonnet just above the license plate, and a set of circular lamps surrounded in chrome. There is a black matte portion at the bottom, featuring a rear mesh and mouldings for the circular exhaust tubes.

The primary colour of the car is applied on the bodywork and the stitching found on the steering wheel and seats, while the secondary colour is applied in the form of a stripe on the bonnet. Its stock wheels have 5-spoke rims with a pentagon-shaped black matte portion surrounding the centre of the rim.

The Issi is powered by an inline-4 engine model, boosted by a supercharger (made apparent by the sound of a supercharged whine), similarly to the 2005 Mini Cooper S on which this quirky supermini is based.

Though the engine is not exactly the mightiest of powerhouses (the car is defeated by any form of upwards gradient), the lightweight results in a rather nippy, chuckable little car that will corner superbly (if occasionally, oversteering around low-speed corners). Such handling characteristics that come with a short-wheelbased FF hatchback are complimented by rather potent brakes, and when performance driving this can make even an exotic coupé.

Its downside, however, are spin-outs due to the Issi's somewhat sensitive steering, especially at high speeds, as well as its weak resistance against high-speed collisions, often resulting its wheels to bend and greatly affecting its handling. The handling and its top speed is the most superior in its class beating the Panto and Blista, although this is not always entirely the case. The acceleration is dominated by its competitor, the Panto.

Unfortunately, the Issi suffers from poor durability and crash deformation, and 2-4 head-on collisions may render the engine useless or one of the axles bent. In addition, body panels (such as fenders, quarter panels, and bumpers) tend to detach quite easily during collisions and rollovers.

Notable Owners


Grand Theft Auto V

Grand Theft Auto Online

  • Available for purchase from Southern San Andreas Super Autos for $18,000.
  • Commonly spawns in Mirror Park and Pillbox Hill.



  • The car's name is named after the original Mini's designer, Sir Alec Issigonis.
  • Both Weeny and Issi are similar words meaning small ("teeny weeny" and "itsy bitsy").

Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online

  • Red Issi props sit atop several 'Prepare for Take Off' billboards that pose as unique stunt jump ramps located on around Sightings Bar & Restaurant at Los Santos International Airport (LSIA).
  • If the player steals Tracey's Issi as Franklin or Trevor, Michael will text the player "That's my daughter's car!". This text is also received if the player drives a randomly stolen Issi or Beverly's Issi near Michael's house. If Jimmy is nearby he may enter the player's Issi and attempt to drive away, but he has trouble finding the road if this happens and just drives into a wall.
  • The default radio station of the Issi is Non-Stop-Pop FM.
  • The fact that the description for the Issi on Southern San Andreas Super Autos states that the car only plays pop hits is probably because the Mini Cooper is mainly purchased by a younger audience, who would likely listen to pop hits. This is further supported by the default station being Non-Stop-Pop FM.
  • In the PS3/Xbox 360 versions of the game, the interior appears to have been taken from a Benefactor car, as one can easily notice the diamond shaped imprint on the steering wheel. In the enhanced version, the steering wheel is blank.
  • Just like the Prairie, the Issi's 4 cylinder engine is laid longitudinally despite being front wheel drive, where this combination would be impossible without the use of a limited slip differential.
  • Given the in-game model name is "Issi2", it is possible that another Issi was in development and then cut before the game's release.
