In GTA San Andreas, the Emperor, based on an [[wp:Infiniti Q45#First generation G50|1990-1993 Infiniti Q45]], represents a then contemporary large four-door sedan, with a lean design and somewhat rounded profile. Its also looks like [[Sentinel]], but more sleek and profiled.

In GTA IV, the Emperor, given an [[Albany]] badge, is based on a [[wp:Cadillac DeVille#1977 - 1984|'78 or '79 Cadillac]][[wp:Cadillac Fleetwood#1977-1986 .28RWD.29| Fleetwood]], judging by the front bumper,with a flattened front end and no hood ornament. The side is closer to a 1980-1984 Fleetwood; the rear could also be from these cars since their trunks have more subtle creases (the Emperor has extremely subtle creases on the trunk). It features a "[[Wrecks|beater]]" version of the Emperor, with junky paint finishes, worn interiors, an occasionally missing quarter panel, and old wheels and tires. A rare rat rod beater with a neon green canvas roof also exists. The beater version is slightly more common.

GTA IV's Emperor is powered by a high-displacement, but low-output 5.7 liter V8, mated to a 5 speed gearbox in RWD configuration. Due to its weight and low-power engine, the Emperor is quite slow off the line, and its top speed of 120 MPH (185 kmh) leaves much to be desired. Acceleration differs between the two variants, with the standard Emperor reaching 60 mph in 9.9 seconds, and the beater in 12.9 seconds. The car feels very heavy around corners and loses much speed around them. Its soft suspension often results in its rear swinging out of control and subtle fishtailing. Braking is very poor, and strangely, for a vehicle that's designed to be reminiscent of late 1970s/early 1980s cars, ABS is standard. Crash deformation is below average, and build quality is surprisingly low: as the Emperor cannot sustain much damage before failing or catching fire.

The Albany Emperor is a 4-door sedan featured in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Grand Theft Auto IV and Grand Theft Auto V. The car varies significantly between the three games. In GTA IV and GTA V, it is the four-door derivative of the Manana.

Description Edit

Design Edit

In GTA San Andreas, the Emperor, based on an 1990-1993 Infiniti Q45, represents a then contemporary large four-door sedan, with a lean design and somewhat rounded profile. Its also looks like the Sentinel, but more sleek and profiled.

In GTA IV, the Emperor, given an Albany badge (Cadillac badge in game)but the car it self is based off the Cadillac Brougham ([1]). Judging by the front bumper,with a flattened front end and no hood ornament. The side is closer to a 1980-1984 Fleetwood; the rear could also be from these cars since their trunks have more subtle creases (the Emperor has extremely subtle creases on the trunk). It features a "beater" version of the Emperor, with junky paint finishes, worn interiors, an occasionally missing quarter panel, and old wheels and tires. The beater version is slightly more common.

Performance Edit

Acceleration and speed of GTA San Andreas' Emperor are somewhat disappointing, as are handling and braking. The engine sounds as though it is a large V6 or V8, but is apparently incapable of delivering substantial power to the bulky, rear-drive vehicle. Using the E-brake around corners almost guarantees fishtailing, making this car almost useless when driving at high speeds. It is, however, a sturdy vehicle with low chances of roll overs, and does a fairly good job of absorbing damage.

GTA IV's Emperor is powered by a high-displacement, but low-output 5.7 liter V8, mated to a 5 speed gearbox in RWD configuration. Due to its weight and low-power engine, the Emperor is quite slow off the line, and its top speed of 120 MPH (185 kmh) leaves much to be desired. Acceleration differs between the two variants, with the standard Emperor reaching 60 mph in 9.9 seconds, and the beater in 12.9 seconds. The car feels very heavy around corners and loses much speed around them. Its soft suspension often results in its rear swinging out of control and subtle fishtailing. Braking is very poor, and strangely, for a vehicle that's designed to be reminiscent of late 1970s/early 1980s cars, ABS is standard. Crash deformation is below average, and build quality is surprisingly low: as the Emperor cannot sustain much damage before failing or catching fire.
