An all black Elegy.

The Elegy is a 2 door sports coupe from Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. It can be found in Downtown San Fierro, The Strip in Las Venturas, and inside the Wang Cars showroom in San Fierro, once the asset missions have been completed. Since it is classified as a tuner, the Elegy can only be modified at Wheel Arch Angels in Ocean Flats, San Fierro. It is also used by the San Fierro Triads as one of their gang cars, alongside the Sultan and the Stratum, which are also both tuners.

Design

The Elegy is based off the Nissan Skyline GT-R from the rear and as the Nissan Silvia in the front, which is only sold officially in Japan and is rarely ever seen in the US market. It bears a striking resemblance to the R32 model with R34 taillights. The Elegy is rear-wheel drive, unlike the well known Skyline GT-R, which is all-wheel drive, even though the GTS-T (a Lower Grade model With Less power) is rear-wheel drive.

Performance

Acceleration, speed, and handling are very impressive, although slight burnouts and fishtailing can be a nuisance while speeding about the city, as the engine tends to overpower the drivetrain, threatening it to spin out if attempting to turn in corners. This also makes the car virtually unmanageable at high speeds after a back tire has been shot out, making it extremely difficult to maintain control. However, it is one of the best cars to to drift with. Despite the small chassis, the Elegy is capable of withstanding a good deal of damage, but explosions must be avoided.

The Elegy's engine looks, sounds, and performs very similar to the Sultan's, and is probably also a twin-turbo straight-6.

Modding

It can be modified in Wheel Arch Angels. It comes with 10 rims, 3 paintjobs, 2 bodykits (spoilers, front and rear bumpers, side skirts, roof scoops), hydraulics and nitrous.
