The [[Dundreary]] '''Admiral''' is a 4-door sedan featured in ''[[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City]]'', ''[[Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas]]'', ''[[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories]]'', ''[[Grand Theft Auto IV]]'' and ''[[Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars]]''. In [[3D Universe]], it was originally a compact executive car, while in [[HD Universe]] it is completely redesigned into a more larger luxury car.
   
 
==Design==
 
==Design==
In GTA Vice City, GTA San Andreas, GTA Vice City Stories, the car resembles a 1980s [[wp:Mercedes-Benz W123|Mercedes-Benz E-Class (W123)]], with a front facia similar to the [[wp:Volvo_200_Series|Volvo 240]].<ref>[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:%2780-%2782_Volvo_240DL_Sedan.JPG]</ref><ref>[http://www.neoseeker.com/forums/3496/t237200-real-life-cars-vice-city-cars-similarities/2.htm]</ref> In GTA San Andreas, it appears to feature a minor 1990s facelift, although in reality, at this point of time, the W123 was replaced by the [[wp:Mercedes-Benz W124|Mercedes-Benz W124]]. The design remains unchanged throughout [[3D Universe]].

In GTA Vice City, GTA San Andreas, GTA Vice City Stories, the car resembles a [[wp:Mercedes-Benz W201|1982-1993 Mercedes-Benz 190E]], with a front fascia similar to the [[wp:Volvo 200 Series|Volvo 240]] and the rear from a [[wp:BMW 3 Series (E30)|BMW 3 Series E30]]. In GTA San Andreas, it appears to feature a minor 1990s facelift, although in reality, at this point of time, the 190E was replaced by the [[wp:Mercedes-Benz C-Class|Mercedes-Benz C-Class]]. The design remains unchanged throughout [[3D Universe]].
   
In GTA IV, the Admiral sports a completely different design with no reminiscence to the previous renditions. Gone with the Mercedes appearance, it is now based on the [[wp:Mercury_Grand_Marquis#Fourth_generation_.282003.E2.80.932011.29|2003-2011 Mercury Grand Marquis]] with taillights from the [[wp:Toyota Crown|11th generation Toyota Crown]], having some minor influences from the [[wp:Audi A8|2001 Audi A8]]. Interestingly, the Admiral appears to be a long wheelbase model, despite the fact that the long wheelbase Grand Marquis was only availible in the Middle East.

==Performance==
In the GTA III-era, performance wise, the car is generally acceptable with light weight, stable handling, and good acceleration and top speed, to the point it is offered as a starter car which the player may first control in GTA Vice City. Surprisingly, it is front-wheel drive, in contrast to the E-Class or Volvo 200 which are both rear-wheel drive, making it quite suspectible to understeer. The GTA Vice City and San Andreas renditions has the same engine sound as the [[Sentinel]], while the GTA Vice City Stories rendition has the same engine sound as the [[Landstalker]] and the [[Patriot]].

All renditions are equipped with a four-cylinder engine.
   
In GTA IV, it is powered by a large V8 engine with a RWD configuration coupled to a 5-speed transmission. Acceleration is good but not great (0-60mph in 7.8 seconds), and handling is as to be expected; the sheer weight and the comfort-oriented suspension does have its disadvantages. The top speed is a rather impressive 172 mph (276kmh). Despite ABS as standard, it takes a long time to stop the heavy saloon completely. The Admiral, however, is very resilient to crashes thanks to its bulky construction. The weight is also useful for ramming other vehicles off the road. The Admiral is rather rare, it is more common to find it in limo form, the [[Stretch]].

The Dundreary Admiral is a 4-door sedan featured in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, Grand Theft Auto IV and Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars. In 3D Universe, it was originally a compact executive car, while in HD Universe it is completely redesigned into a more larger luxury car.

DesignEdit

3D UniverseEdit

In GTA Vice City, GTA San Andreas, GTA Vice City Stories, the car resembles a 1982-1993 Mercedes-Benz 190E, with a front fascia similar to the Volvo 240 and the rear from a BMW 3 Series E30. In GTA San Andreas, it appears to feature a minor 1990s facelift, although in reality, at this point of time, the 190E was replaced by the Mercedes-Benz C-Class. The design remains unchanged throughout 3D Universe.

HD UniverseEdit

In GTA IV, the Dundreary Admiral sports a completely different design with no reminiscence to the previous renditions. No longer with the Mercedes/BMW appearance, it is now a larger executive car similar to the Washington. The car features a Japanese-American design that is based on the 2003 Toyota Crown Majesta with headlights from the 2003-2011 Mercury Grand Marquis, having some minor influences from the Lexus GS S160. Interestingly, the Admiral appears to be a long wheelbase model, despite the fact that the long wheelbase Grand Marquis was only available in the Middle East.

In GTA Chinatown Wars, the Admiral still retains this Japanese-American design, but a different year, particularly the mid-1990s model.

PerformanceEdit

3D UniverseEdit

In the GTA III era, performance wise, the car is generally acceptable with light weight, stable handling, and good acceleration and top speed, to the point it is offered as a starter car which the player may first control in GTA Vice City. Surprisingly, it is front-wheel drive, in contrast to the Mercedes 190E, BMW E30 or Volvo 200 which are all rear-wheel drive, making it quite suspectible to understeer. The GTA Vice City and GTA San Andreas renditions has the same engine sound as the Sentinel, implying it is turbocharged, but the GTA Vice City Stories rendition is different, emitting the same sound as the Taxi and is not turbocharged, reflecting the game's setting in 1984. All renditions are equipped with a four-cylinder engine.

HD UniverseEdit

In GTA IV, it is powered by a large V8 engine with a RWD configuration coupled to a 5-speed transmission. Acceleration is good but not great (0-60 mph in 7.8 seconds), and handling is as to be expected; the sheer weight and the comfort-oriented suspension does have its disadvantages. The top speed is a rather impressive 198 mph (320 km/h). Despite ABS as standard, it takes a long time to stop the heavy saloon completely. The Admiral, however, is very resilient to crashes thanks to its bulky construction. The weight is also useful for ramming other vehicles off the road. The Admiral is rather rare, it is more common to find it in limo form, the Stretch.

In GTA Chinatown Wars, the Admiral retains the performance from GTA IV. There is a purple and white Triad variant on which sports upgraded acceleration and top speed as well as a smoother engine sound.
