The Uranus is a two-door sport compact which appears in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Grand Theft Auto IV and its episodes. It is manufactured by Vapid in GTA IV.


Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

In GTA San Andreas, the Uranus is a tuner car resembling cross between Subaru SVX (1991), and the Mitsubishi Eclipse (1989). It has a custom exhaust, similar to most cars in the series. Its C-Pillar flatform is inspired by the Eagle Talon, one of the most iconic vehicles from foreign manufacturers during the 1990s.

Grand Theft Auto IV

The Uranus is redesigned for GTA IV, having been branded with a Vapid badge. The car is strongly based on the Third Generation (Fox Body) Mustang , as well as the Merkur XR4Ti, a North-American version of the Ford Sierra XR4i. However, the Uranus has front-wheel drive, whereas the Mustang and Sierra are both rear-wheel drive cars. The grille, front and taillights resemble Opel Manta B2. The car also resembles the 1984–1986 Mustang SVO, particularly due to having a partially hidden grille, side vents and rear influences.

The Uranus features the Door Ajar Chime, which can be heard with the driver's door open in quiet areas.

The vehicle does not appear in Grand Theft Auto V, however, its handling line can be found in the game's files, suggesting it may have been a controllable vehicle at some point during development. Additionally, wrecked versions of the vehicle can be found around San Andreas. It is unknown why the vehicle was discarded.

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

GTA San Andreas' Uranus is regarded as an average sports coupe, with above average acceleration and top speed, and very stable cornering and grip, coupled with excellent braking. However, given the vehicle's stiff suspensions, considerably high ground clearance, a tall body construction and shorter axle tracks, the vehicle's risk of tipping over on bumpy terrain is higher than most cars of its class. The engine sounds like the turbocharged 2.0L that is used in the real-life cars that the Uranus is based on.

Grand Theft Auto IV

In GTA IV, the Uranus is a decent performing car. As well as holding a reasonably high top speed, it also comes with great handling. The vehicle's top speed is reasonably high for its class, and its gear ratios are fairly low, meaning acceleration is also acceptable. The Uranus holds a front engine, front wheel drive configuration, coupled to a five-speed gearbox.

In terms of handling and steering, the vehicle fairs well. It has nimble handling with a good steering radius, and makes good work out of corners. Combined with this is its suspension, which allows the car to corner without the chance of rolling over, and losing control is fairly rare, even when considering its light weight body-style and front-wheel configuration. The vehicle's durability is average for its class. The Uranus deforms easily, but the wheels are never really effected by deformation of any area of the chassis. In fact, the only time handling is affected by deformation is when the front bumper and chassis bend downwards, causing it to get caught into the road when under braking. Braking time is also average for the vehicle, and overrunning corners doesn't usually occur when in good control.

The engine model appears to be a single-cam V8, placed in a front engine, front wheel drive layout. The engine is laid longitudinally.

Based on what the files suggests, the Uranus remained similar to the GTA IV rendition, except it was slightly heavier (from 1,300 kg to 1,800 kg) and had a RWD configuration.[1]

Special Variants

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

  • A pink Uranus can be seen in the mission Zeroing In.

Grand Theft Auto IV

  • A modified version of the Uranus also appears in the game. It is usually driven by members of the Russian Mafia and appears in Hove Beach with a custom bodykit, aftermarket exhaust, front spotlights, rear window louvers, a "whale-tail" spoiler, which closely resembles a spoiler available on the Sierra RS Cosworth, and a large windshield decal that reads "LOZSPEED". The interior of the vehicle is also modified with LOZSPEED racing seats, aluminum pedals, and white gauges with black digits. There is also a pink Burberry Baseball Cap placed behind the back seats. This modified version, however, lacks any enhanced performance over its stock counterpart.
  • In The Ballad of Gay Tony, the LOZSPEED Uranus is one of vehicles that can be found with a unique paint job during the Drug Wars side missions. It can be found in a few different color combinations, including, but not limited to; matte black paint and green rims, pearlescent blue paint with purple undertones and black wheels, and yellow and dark brown two-tone paint with brown wheels. This variant may also appear with a unique combination of modifications, specifically appearing with the wing and window louvers of the LOZSPEED version while not retaining the window banner or fog lamps.
    • The Uranus can be found sporting the wing and rear window louvers from the LOZSPEED version. However these do not appear with the windscreen banner or the four fog lamps on the front. This configuration of Uranus can only be obtained through said sidemission.

Prominent Appearances in Missions

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

  • Zeroing In - Carl has to track down and steal a unique pink Uranus driven by a woman through western parts of San Fierro, by using the P.I.T Maneuver that he learns at Driving School.

Grand Theft Auto IV


Grand Theft Auto IV

  • After completing Stevie's text message car thefts, the Uranus may be sold in his garage for $1,500.



  • The Uranus plays the following radio stations by default when entered:
  • Uranus is the seventh planet in the Solar System. It is pronounced, "you-ran-us". However, people tend to mispronounce it or to jokingly use the word as a crude reference to the term "your anus". Considering Rockstar Games' long history of crude references, "your anus" is likely to be the intended pronunciation. The car is actually called this way by the police dispatch in GTA IV.

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

  • If the Uranus' rear is damaged, and the tail lights are active, a red light can be seen inside the car. It is seen better when viewed from a rear-top angle. However, it will not always happen.

Grand Theft Auto IV

  • This car is likely a descendant to the Cossie from Grand Theft Auto, which is also based on the Ford Escort.
  • The Burberry cap in the back of the car is mocking chav culture. In the UK, the Uranus' real-life counterpart, the Ford Sierra XR4i, is sometimes considered a "chav car".


Grand Theft Auto IV

  • The Russian Mafia variant has a visual glitch where the exhaust pipe is on the opposite side of the car, causing exhaust fumes to come out of the other side.
