"Blurring the lines between an automobile and an English aristocrat's mansion, this is a car that could even give a nu-metal fan an air of class and taste. The bumbling manufacturer made the aerodynamics so poor and the chassis so heavy that its dual-turbo engine can barely get it to a kerb-crawl, but that's part of (or all of) its British charm."
Legendary Motorsport description.

The Windsor is a two-door convertible in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas and a luxury two-door coupe in Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online as part of the Ill-Gotten Gains Part 1 update. It is manufactured by Enus in the HD Universe.

Design

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

The Windsor is designed as a 1960s to early 1970s classic convertible sports car, appearing with either its black top up or down. The car resembles a late 60s - mid 70's Jaguar E-Type or TVR S Series, but features a stretched rear and a generally longer proportion. The front seems to be based on the 1964-1966 Ferrari America 500 Superfast. It also has some attributes from the Chevrolet Corvette Ray Convertible, for example, the roof or the exhaust's shape.

Grand Theft Auto V

The Windsor returned as a modern, larger coupe, taking heavy influence from the Rolls Royce Wraith, and some other elements from the Bentley Flying Spur. The car takes a contemporary coupe body design, with an upraised hood. The car is also the first car in the series to feature multiple designer liveries (eight in total), which can be applied to the exterior of the car, similar to the vinyl wrapping process.

By default, the Windsor appears without a livery in the protagonists' garages (original edition only), however, when purchasing it from Legendary Motorsport, the player can only order the vehicle with a livery, which can be changed or removed at Los Santos Customs. The vinyl wrap will be affected by the base primary and secondary colour paint.

Performance

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

The Windsor is a fast car; however, it does not match up to some of the "elite" cars. The Windsor's engine is very loud, giving out a throaty roar. Acceleration and speed is on par with other similar classic two-door cars. Cornering is very difficult, as the car seems to be much heavier than it looks. It also tends to subtly fishtail or drift, despite running at mid speeds, though experienced players can control its drifting capabilities.

Grand Theft Auto V

Performance wise, the Windsor is middle-range for the coupes class, sporting an acceleration time between the Oracle (which is best in class), and the Felon. Top speed is very fast for a coupe, faster than every other car in its class, and even some of the sports cars. Handling, however, is terrible due to the Windsor's weight, and causes the vehicle to have notable understeer. Braking is average for the coupes class. The car's weight causes it to feel very planted when cornering, and makes the Windsor very difficult to roll.

The Windsor is stated to sport a large twin-turbo V12 engine, but the car has a engine cover depicting a single-cam V8, with no clear 3D model underneath. The car seems to have a potent yet smooth engine sound under the hood, being considerably quieter than other large-engined cars.

Trivia

General

  • The default radio stations of the Windsor are:
  • Its name may be inspired from the Windsor family, which is the name of United Kingdom's royal family, asserting its British origins.
    • This is further evidenced for the vehicle in Grand Theft Auto V, which is manufactured by British car manufacturer Enus. Windsor, being the name of a royal family also fits the luxury aspect of the vehicle.

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

  • Oddly enough, the front license plate is mounted so that it partly obstructs the engine's main source of air. This is most likely a developer's oversight.
