The car's emergency lighting has also been updated, featuring LEDs on the grill, roof, back window and rear lights.

The Bravado Police Buffalo (named in-game as a Police Cruiser) is a Police Car, only available in the Free Mode of The Ballad of Gay Tony but also appears in Grand Theft Auto V. This vehicle shares the same in-game name as the regular Police Cruiser (made by Vapid) which appears in IV & V, but is a separate vehicle.

DesignEdit

The Ballad of Gay TonyEdit

The vehicle is a Bravado Buffalo similar to the first and second generation Dodge Charger Police Package used by the New York Police Department, is a variant of the Buffalo, like the FIB Buffalo, and the three share similar performance.

In multiplayer, the Police Buffalo can be found at a majority of police stations, and is not accessible in single player. When spawned via hacks or trainers in single player, players can notice that sometimes, strangely enough, regular civilians may drive the Police Buffalos on streets.

The livery is almost exactly the same as those used on the New York Police Department's chargers.

GTA VEdit

The car's model remains the same, in that it has the same body as TBoGT rendition. The livery however has been changed to a similar livery to the LSPD to reflect its real life inspiration. The car's emergency lighting has also been updated, featuring LEDs on the grill, roof, back window and rear lights. It is unequivocaly the rarest police car in the entire GTA series, since it only spawns in a certain part of Los Santos near the Mission Row police station, either on patrol or in the bus stop area at night, and it is extremely rare to spawn in either circumstance.

Unlike the other Police and Sheriff Cruisers and vehicles the LSPD Buffalo does not have a two-digit number on the roof. It is, however, the only one having a badge painted on the hood.

A version with a low-level spoiler attached sometimes spawns as well.

The vehicle has had a makeover for the PS4 and Xbox One editions, now sporting a bullbar and a similar livery to the Police Cruiser, including air identification numbers and the city seal on the side.

PerformanceEdit

For performance, the Buffalo is best described as 'above average'. It will out-accelerate any other standard-issue police vehicle in the game, save for of course the Police Stinger, which is obviously either a D.A.R.E. car or some other community-oriented policing strategy. Its top speed, engine and weight all appear to be taken from its unmarked sister, the FIB Buffalo.

Handling-wise, the Police Buffalo is well-balanced, and sticks to the road a bit better than the apparently aging Vapid platform that it patrially replaces. Due to RWD, over-steer is very prevalent and the Buffalo's V8 engine requires huge RPM to accommodate for it at low speeds. At high speed, the Buffalo is remarkably stable, and lift-throttle over-steer is nearly non-existent.

Crash deformation is average. In frontal impacts, the suspension appears to be tough, but its engine only takes a few good hits before it begins to smoke.

There is little difference between GTA IV and V, except that the vehicle is much more durable. It does have an issue, however, in that its front axle bends easier than other Police cars, especially its older competitor. Still an excellent choice for most officers if treated right.
