"Sure, you could afford the latest Ocelot, or a vintage Enus - but you're not a show-off. You're just a slightly quirky, totally down-to-earth person looking for a way to tell everyone how slightly quirky and totally down-to-earth you are. Well, look no further, because for the last half-century the Issi Classic has been the closest thing on four wheels to screaming "I've got nothing to prove to anyone" in the face of every stranger you meet."

The Weeny Issi Classic is a compact car featured in Grand Theft Auto Online as part of the continuation of the Southern San Andreas Super Sport Series update, released on April 17th, 2018, during The Vespucci Job Week event.[1]

Design

Grand Theft Auto Online

The Issi Classic is a caricature of the original BMC Mini. Its door handles and tail lamps allude to the 1967-1970 Mini MK II. The front facade overall seems to be inspired by the Trabant as seen in its square grille and square indicators, though the grille itself seems to reference the hexagonal designs applied upwards from the Mk. 2 Mini. The chrome design in its stock grille looks similar to the grille pattern found on the 1974 Mini Clubman SRV4, and takes some inspiration from some adaptations of the Morris Mini Cooper S for rally courses and the Mercedes avant-garde grille. The painted options for the grille references earlier Mk. 1 models. Its wide tyre profile and wide track compared to its body is reminiscent to variants of the Mk. 6 and Mk. 7 Mini, as well as its fender extension options.

The vehicle's interior is a unique model resembling the design seen in the Mk. 7 Mini Cooper, featuring a small radio and a Meinmacht ICE screen. It is lined with wood trim similar to the Rapid GT Classic and GT500, as well as classic dials and racing needles. Other details in the interior include window-winders, influenced from Mk III-onward Mini models, and a classic 5-speed gear lever stick (despite the vehicle having only 4 gears).

The car features a European-style front license plate similar in style to the Fagaloa and Pigalle. This cannot be modified, however the California-style rear one can. Both plates will display the same text.

When the suspension is upgraded, all four wheels' camber will increase.

Performance

Grand Theft Auto Online

As expected from a small, compact car, the vehicle is a very nimble, agile vehicle. Its "biggest" feature being its small size, allows it to pass through tight spaces, including interiors, without trouble, similar in fashion to the Panto. As a result of its size, it is also one of the lightest four-wheeled vehicles in the entire game, allowing it to pickup speed very quickly.

In terms of acceleration, the vehicle dominates most of the vehicles within the Compacts class, surpassing even the standard Issi, partially due to its lighter weight, but also down to a much faster shifting speed. On the other hand, its lack of a 5th gear prevents it from reaching its full potential, despite having a very high revving engine in comparison to the Issi, resulting in a relatively low top speed for its class.

The shortened wheelbase and small wheels give the vehicle very nippy handling and allow it to corner at an instant, and the front-engine, front-wheel drive configuration appears to give this vehicle excellent traction on the road, though turning a corner too aggressively will result the car to spin out very easily. Off-road wise, there isn't enough traction to tackle steep, muddy hills. The narrow profile of its wheels also prove useful in off-road conditions, however the lack of deep, off-road tread can often pose a problem to the driver.

The Issi Classic appears to be powered by a very high-revving single-cam, transversely laid inline-4 with a mounted air filter and functioning timing belt. Like the real-life Mini, the engine is mounted in a front-engine, front-wheel drive configuration, coupled up to a 4-speed gearbox.

Its engine sound appears to be shared with the Stinger, Stinger GT and 190z, however an extra exhaust note gives the engine an aggressive tone, similar in tone to the GT500. Interestingly, the vehicle appears to over-rev between shifting, causing the vehicle to pause, in a similar manner to the Duneloader. This issue is apparent in most of the vehicles added in the Southern San Andreas Super Sport Series update.

Like the Panto, the Issi Classic does not deform, presumably for game balancing purposes, but it does not take as few as 5-6 direct full frontal strikes[vague] from cars comparable to the Police Interceptor at high speeds before smoke begins to emit from the engine.

General

  • Like its modern variant, the vehicle is named after Sir Alec Issigonis, the designer of the original Mini.
  • With the correct modifications, one can modify the car to resemble Mr. Bean's iconic Mini.
