"After hours of crate digging, you know when they've found the perfect sample to butcher on your latest EDM track. This is that record. Remix culture meets auto culture with the Virgo, a car that's already lower and slower than any road-certified vehicle can afford to be - and trust us, you ain't seen nothing yet. Your old man thought this was stately and composed back when he was curb crawling his way through the 70s, so jack up, jerk it off, and show him how the young folks get down."
Benny's Original Motor Works description.

The Dundreary Virgo Classic (formerly named "Virgo") is a two-door car featured in the HD Universe.

Design

Grand Theft Auto IV

The Virgo in Grand Theft Auto IV is arguably equally based on the 1977-79 Lincoln Mark V and 1977-1979 Mercury Cougar. The tail lights are similar to those on the 1977-79 Ford Thunderbird. The rear is also quite similar to the Remington from Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.

The Virgo assumes a similar design to the 3D Universe iterations of the Virgo, but features some changes around it. The front bumper is mostly identical, but appears to be larger and more inset with the front, while featuring protruding edges, more separated overriders and a license plate on the center. The grille remains similar in shape, but the separations are in a horizontal positioning rather than vertical, apart of the manufacturer badge on the upper section. The headlights are the same ones from the original Virgo, but are placed more in line with the front rather than being inset from the rest of the vehicle, while the turn signals are slightly larger. The hood remains identical in design, retaining the central bulge.

The sides of the car retain the same appearance from the 3D Universe version, but there is a set of plastic strips over the silver lower trims, silver bottom skirts and thinner trimmings on the wheel arches, the upper area and the rear section. The greenhouse area assumes a single-body construction, with silver trim around the windows and inner pillars, as well as square rear-view mirrors.

The rear of the car retains the slanted design, but the trunk is flat in appearance and houses the badges, the license plate, two vertical reverse lights and a set of red outer brake and inner indicator lights, the latter bearing silver V-shaped details. The outer edges of the car are finished in silver and the bumper features the same elements as the front. Two exhaust pipes can be seen below.

The Virgo is only set to spawn in a single color, though it is revealed that the secondary color is applied on the front area and sides (which is only seen on a single variant). It uses a set of wired rims.

V.png

Renamed to 'Virgo Classic', the vehicle returns to Grand Theft Auto Online with the same design and features, but appears to have an updated texturing, with the details being noticeably finished in chrome and the lights being more detailed. The inner rear lights were changed into white/amber lights with a slight red fading on the outer sides, while the V-shaped details are no longer present. The interior is the same one from the Faction.

Color distribution is the same as in GTA IV, with the primary one applied on the upper area, interior section behind the back seats and the stitches, and the secondary one applied on the front and sides. The vehicle retains the same wired rims.

Performance

Grand Theft Auto IV

Engine bay (GTA IV).

The engine feels rather restricted in terms of power, resulting in rather torpid acceleration mid-range. This shortage of brute force does not seem to have limited the top speed to such a degree. One thing this car can do exceptionally well is corner. Despite being a large, ungainly classic American car, when pushed to the limit it is perfectly capable of attacking corners vigorously with just the mere suggestion of oversteer, being an ideal weapon of choice in classic car races. It also glides around bends with such docility when driving in a relaxed fashion, though even at low speeds body roll can be pronounced. Old drums behind the wheels make for rather poor braking.

Powering the rear wheels of the Virgo is what is modeled as a single camshaft V8, coupled with a 5-speed gearbox. Its sound is shared with the Merit and its service variants.

Grand Theft Auto Online

The Virgo Classic's performance had shown improvements from its GTA IV counterpart, being able to take corners easily and when it starts to lose traction, it can be corrected. Overall top speed and acceleration is fair, though its heavy body can easily withstand head-on collisions against traffic several times.

Again, the rear wheels are powered by the same single camshaft V8 engine through a 5-speed gearbox. The engine sound was changed into the same roary engine sound also found on the Buccaneer.

Variants

Description

The Virgo Classic Custom is a custom variant of the Virgo Classic exclusive for Grand Theft Auto Online, which features highly-advanced modifications and hydraulics enabled, not present on the standard Virgo Classic.


Special Variants

  • In GTA IV, Little Jacob drives a uniquely colored maroon-and-black Virgo which he uses to sell and transport firearms from the trunk. It is available to the player in the beginning of "Concrete Jungle". Niko is able to take it to his safehouse and complete the mission in another car. The player can also obtain the Virgo after escaping the cops in "Russian Revolution". The player can drive it to his safehouse and complete the mission in another vehicle. It is possible to find Little Jacob's Virgo at a an unnamed church in Suffolk in the mission "Mr and Mrs Bellic". It is unobtainable while wearing a suit and tie, because once the player gets close to the car, it triggers a cutscene. The player can take it while wearing casual clothes however, because the cut-scene only occurs once Niko is dressed appropriately.

Trivia

General

  • The Virgo plays the following radio stations by default when entered:
  • The car was originally named "Virgo" in Grand Theft Auto IV, however, when a totally different muscle car was introduced to Grand Theft Auto V, also named "Virgo", confusion was brought up to why the car underwent a massive transformation. Later in the enhanced version of GTA Online, the GTA IV "Virgo" returned, renamed the "Virgo Classic", which reveals the name of the car's historical appearances, while the name "Virgo" now refers to the transformed muscle car from 3D Universe and GTA V.
  • The Virgo's name derives from the name of the sixth astrological sign of the Zodiac. It is also the Latin name for the Virgin Mary.

Grand Theft Auto Online

  • Despite the original GTA IV Virgo returning to GTA Online being dubbed "Classic", the models it derives inspiration from are actually newer than the Virgo originally added to GTA V in the Ill-Gotten Gains Part 1 update.
  • The badge texture file shows what appears to be the arrow-shaped detail that is found on the tail lights of the original GTA IV model. However, it is unused. The same applies to its custom variant.
