A Windsor in GTA San Andreas (Rear quarter view, top down).

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



The Windsor is designed as a 1960s to early 1970s classic European convertible sports car, appearing with either its black top up or down. It resembles a "pre-Kamm tail" Alfa Romeo Spider (1966–1969); it features a very Jaguar-like grille however.


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 4 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.


Being a standard sports car, the Windsor can only be modified at TransFender, which offers the following modifications:

  • Color
  • Wheels (ten types)
  • Nitro (All)
  • Bass Boost
  • Hydraulics
