Below you can find official interesting curiosities related to this model and version. Tab "curiosities" has been additionaly expaned by few segments, thanks to that you can find specific information easier. Additionally, unlike the old site, some curiosities may have pictures showcasing it.

* Curiosities for each models have been written from scratch and there are a lot more of them than on old

Below this tab there is another one - a complete work process on this model. This might be actual or archival (depending on information: "Model finished", "Work in progress..."). A table with description of work done was divided into more categories. Thanks to that there is no more chaos like on old, violet Both curiosities and work progress are related to the first model from GTA IV.

Other curiosities

• The inscriptions on the rear window were previously used in Lanos 3d PL ‘97.

• Compared to the hatchbacks made in 2013 and 2014, the sedan has a couple of improvements, including fixing of the hole behind the front bumper, have a new interior lighting, but must importantly, the engine have been retextured (taken from Joyster conversion for GTA V). The texture is in much higher quality, which can be seen on the first pic on the right.

• The brochure 3D model is downloaded from a website with free 3D models.

• It is our third model (after Chairman and Lanos SX sedan) with a realistic interior lighting made by darewnoo. The previous models did not have any interior lighting or it was very simplyfied.

• The steel rims are taken from Lanos 3D S PL, while the dashboard and the steering wheel with no airbag are taken from Lanos Style.

• Even though the model did have some updates, they were not archivized, because the S version (based on SX) was fully made by darewnoo. Lazlow555 did not do anything in this version.

• The model has the 1.6 engine, but the correct one is 1.5.

• Air Conditioning button, airbag sticker and the hole behind the front bumper were removed just before release.
