The Albany Police Roadcruiser is a law enforcement vehicle which appears in Grand Theft Auto V.          

DesignEdit

In Grand Theft Auto V, its styling inspiration appears to be a pastiche of common late-70s/early-80s American car styling. The bumpers, sides and bustle-back styling (a majority of the chassis) is based on the Seventh Generation (1982-1987) Lincoln Continental. The grille and headlights are similar to a 1982/1983 Chevrolet Malibu (the shorter width of the grille makes it look like a 1984 - 85 Chevrolet Celebrity); and the taillights seem based on a '80-'81 Pontiac Bonneville/'85-'86 Pontiac Parisienne, the reverse lights could also suggest some other luxury cars. The combined look seems to emulate an early Cadillac Seville as it is commonly mistaken for one.

In-game, it is modeled after the existing Esperanto in GTA IV, with two stripes (gold and blue) down the side and "STATE PATROL" next to the front door, and the police emblem emblazoned on the front doors, a lightbar on the top of the roof, and blue and red lights elsewhere. It is used by the North Yankton State Patrol. The Police Roadcruiser only spawns with snow on its roof, hood, and trunk, due to it being programmed to appear only in the Prologue, like the Police Rancher. The vehicle also features chains on its tires for better grip on snowy and icy streets.

PerformanceEdit

Very little is known about its performance, since it's undrivable by default. By visual evidences, the vehicle is fast and easy to drive, although its resistance is somewhat average, like any police car.
