It somewhat has the style of a 1989-1991 Chrysler LeBaron in side quarter panel not very noticeable though.

The Primo is one of the most dependable vehicles in the game, possessing good handling as a result of its lighter weight, fair acceleration and a decent top speed. For that, it is an ideal choice for doing drive-bys against enemy gangs. While relatively acceptable under normal driving conditions, the Primo's axle width may make the car less stable in bumpy conditions. It sports a 3.0 Liter V6 with a horsepower range of 260 HP or a 2.5 Liter 4 cylinder with 200 HP. It has a smaller drivetrain it is RWD for the 3.0 Liter and FWD for the 2.5 Liter. It is capable of a top speed of 130 mph for V6 versions and 126 mph for 4 cylinder versions.

In GTA IV, the [[Albany]] Primo retains its four-door sedan design, but it looks like a sedan version of the [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cadillac_Allant%C3%A9 1987-1993 Cadillac Allante] coupe in real life, especially in the head and tail lights. It is also influenced by the [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plymouth_Acclaim 1989-94 ][http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plymouth_Acclaim Plymouth Acclaim and Chrysler Saratoga.] or a first generation [[Wp:Fiat Croma|Fiat Croma]]. and [[Wp:Lancia Thema|Lancia Thema]].

In GTA IV, the Primo is most likely powered by a 4.6L V8 (in real life it would be the [[wp:Northstar engine series#LD8|Northstar LD8]]). This potent powerplant gives the Primo an immense top speed of 187 mph(300km/h), on par with full-on sports cars. [[File:Primo_badges.png|thumb]]The Primo's underpinning is it's body roll and small, weak brakes. The Primo's acceleration and handling are also poor and unsporty and it suffers from a problem similar to the [[Emperor (car)|Emperor]] in which the rear swings frenziedly on sharp turns - but even worse, the car feels heavily planted on the ground, therefore, if the turning is done smoothly, the Primo will do a very wide turn, the only possible workarounds are to start drifting yards before where the desired turn is or to slow down. This car is thus very unfavorable for driving at high speeds, leading this vehicle to be better suited towards missions where a getaway vehicle is not required, friend "hangouts" and city driving.

There are two different styles of Primo. There is a standard middle-of-the-road sedan, and there is also one with a special "Supercharged V8" badge on its decklid. The supercharged Primo is lowered with added ground effects and a spoiler. It always comes in maroon, and is the vehicle of choice for members of the [[Spanish Lords]]. Despite the "Supercharged V8" badge, it has the same performance as the regular Primo, and sounds just like the regular Primo, which leads us to believe that the effects are purely cosmetic. The Supercharged V8 Primo can usually be found driven in and around Spanish Lords territory, including [[Cerveza Heights]], [[South Bohan]], [[East Holland]] and southern [[Alderney City]]. If this variant really had improved performance, the engine would most likely be based on the real life [[wp:Northstar engine series#Supercharged_LC3|Northstar Supercharged LC3]].

The Albany Primo is a four door car in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Grand Theft Auto IV and Grand Theft Auto V.

3D UniverseEdit

DesignEdit

In GTA San Andreas, the Primo is one of the better sedans available in the game, although its design is less remarkable and thus appears more generic in traffic. It resembles a fourth generation Toyota Carina, third generation Toyota Cressida, 1987-1990 Toyota Camry or 1985 Honda Accord sedan to some extent. Ideas from the Proton Saga (Saloon) were also believed to have contributed to the Primo in GTA San Andreas, though not really obviously. It somewhat has the style of a 1989-1991 Chrysler LeBaron in side quarter panel not very noticeable though. It may also be based off the Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera.

PerformanceEdit

The Primo is one of the most dependable vehicles in the game, possessing good handling as a result of its lighter weight, fair acceleration and a decent top speed. For that, it is an ideal choice for doing drive-by's against enemy gangs. While relatively acceptable under normal driving conditions, the Primo's axle width may make the car less stable in bumpy conditions. It sports a 3.0 Liter V6 with a horsepower range of 260 HP or a 2.5 Liter 4 cylinder with 200 HP. It has a smaller drivetrain it is RWD for the 3.0 Liter and FWD for the 2.5 Liter. It is capable of a top speed of 130 mph for V6 versions and 126 mph for 4 cylinder versions.

The Primo can be found mostly anywhere in the State of San Andreas.

  • The Primo can only be modified in a TransFender garage.

HD UniverseEdit

DesignEdit

In GTA IV, the Albany Primo retains its four-door sedan design, similar to the Mitsubishi Sigma 2000 with the grille, front headlights and taillights of the 1987-1993 Cadillac Allante coupe in real life. It is also influenced by the 1989-94 Plymouth Acclaim and Chrysler Saratoga, or a first generation Fiat Croma, and Lancia Thema. In GTA V, the Primo retains this design.

PerformanceEdit

In GTA IV, the Primo is most likely powered by a 4.6L V8 (in real life it would be the Northstar LD8, except it is mounted longitudinally to drive the rear wheels). This potent power-plant gives the Primo an immense top speed of 187 mph(300km/h), on par with full-on sports cars.

There are two different styles of Primo. There is a standard middle-of-the-road sedan, and there is also one with a special "Supercharged V8" badge on its deck-lid. The supercharged Primo is lowered with added ground effects and a spoiler. It always comes in maroon, and is the vehicle of choice for members of the Spanish Lords. Despite the "Supercharged V8" badge, it has the same performance as the regular Primo, and sounds just like the regular Primo, which leads us to believe that the effects are purely cosmetic. The Supercharged V8 Primo can usually be found driven in and around Spanish Lords territory, including Cerveza Heights, South Bohan, East Holland and southern Alderney City. If this variant really had improved performance, the engine would most likely be based on the real life Northstar Supercharged LC3.

While not an actual variant, standard black Primos may also be found with the same golden trims as those on the Supercharged V8 variant, the only color scheme for standard Primos to incorporate golden trims.
