The Albany Police Stinger is based on the [[Albany]] [[Presidente]], but features unique bodywork and a pearlescent paint job, similar to that of the Cadillac CTS-V used by the Bloomfield Hills, Michigan Police Department. The front end has been slightly modified and features high intensity discharge headlamps, and a different grille characterized by its chevron shaped bar in the middle. The front of the car also resembles the holden cruze, but that's probably a coincidence. The car's emergency vehicle lighting comes in the form of a slim light bar on the top, and auxiliary lights in the front bumper and rear window. Interestingly, the Stinger has a red and blue light bar on the top of the car, similar to [[NOOSE]] and the [[FIB]], and unlike the [[LCPD in GTA IV Era|LCPD]], who only have red and white light bars to match with [[wp:NYPD|NYPD]] code. This may be because the Police Stinger was meant to be occupied by one of the two former branches, or not to be used as a standard police car at all. Perhaps it is meant to be the GTA analogue for the real-life [[wp:D.A.R.E.|D.A.R.E]] police cars. Oddly, the car doesn't feature racing seats to accompany it's high performance nature, which in theory would make the driving of this car very unsafe.

The Police Stinger's performance is exceptional. Despite having the same supercharged V10 badging as the [[Korean Mob]] Presidente variant, it has a noticeably different, smoother and lighter engine note, comparable to that of the civilian [[Buffalo]]. Unlike any other police vehicle or civilian vehicle, the Police Stinger can reach speeds of up to 240 mph (386 km/h) which is beyond even exotic supercars such as the [[Comet]], [[Bullet GT]], [[Infernus]] or [[Banshee]]. Its acceleration is exceptional thanks to its AWD drivetrain (20%-80% front-rear torque distribution). In fact, the Police Stinger's all-wheel drive system is so good, the vehicle outperforms other off-road intended vehicles, providing the driver with traction on all types of roads including damp weather conditions. On the handling front, the Stinger is highly responsive, yet handling tends to get twitchy and the Police Stinger may suffer from oversteer.

The Albany Police Stinger is a high-performance 4-door police car available during multiplayer in The Ballad of Gay Tony.

DesignEdit

The Albany Police Stinger is based on the Albany Presidente, but features unique bodywork and a pearlescent paint job, similar to that of the Cadillac CTS-V used by the Bloomfield Hills, Michigan Police Department. The front end has been slightly modified and features high intensity discharge headlamps, and a different grille characterized by its chevron shaped bar in the middle. The front of the car also resembles the holden cruze, but that's probably a coincidence. The car's emergency vehicle lighting comes in the form of a slim light bar on the top, and auxiliary lights in the front bumper and rear window. Interestingly, the Stinger has a red and blue light bar on the top of the car, similar to NOOSE and the FIB, and unlike the LCPD, who only have red and white light bars to match with NYPD code. This may be because the Police Stinger was meant to be occupied by one of the two former branches, or not to be used as a standard police car at all. Perhaps it is meant to be the GTA analogue for the real-life D.A.R.E police cars. Oddly, the car doesn't feature racing seats to accompany it's high performance nature, which in theory would make the driving of this car very unsafe.
