The Windsor is two-door sports convertible featured in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.

Description

Design

The Windsor is designed as a 1960s to early 1970s classic European convertible sports car, appearing with either its black canvas top up or down. Originally designed to mimic the late-model Jaguar E-Type, the car was further redesigned during GTA San Andreas' development, resulting in a final form with a front end more similar to that of a 1966–1968 Ferrari 330 GTS or a Ferrari 365.

Performance

The Windsor is a very fast car; however, it does not match up to some of the "elite" cars. The Windsor's engine is very loud, giving out a thoarty roar, sounding more like a V8 than the four cylinder engine that came in all Alfa Spiders or the 6 cylinder/V12 that came in the all Jaguar E-Types, but acceleration and speed is on par. Cornering is very difficult, as the car seems to be much heavier than it looks, and the car tends to subtly fishtail or drift, despite running at mid speeds, though experienced players can control its drifting capabilities.

The Windsor can be modified at a TransFender, but is only offered a bare minimum of modification options:
