The '''Stallion''' is a two-door convertible muscle car featured in the majority of the games in the series so far, including [[Grand Theft Auto 1]], [[Grand Theft Auto III]], [[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City]], [[Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas]], [[Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories]], [[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories]], [[Grand Theft Auto IV]] and [[Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars]].

The [[Classique]] '''Stallion''' is a recurring convertible muscle car that has appeared in the following games:
   
==Overview==
+
* [[Grand Theft Auto 1]]
The Stallion was first featured in GTA 1, in which it appears as a hardtop design and is one of the faster cars on the road; however, it didn't appear again in the series until GTA III. In true muscle car fashion, it has V8 power channeled to the rear wheels. In GTA III and GTA Liberty City Stories, a version of the Stallion is featured in the game. Called [[Diablo Stallion]], it is the primary gang car used by the [[Diablos]]. In GTA San Andreas, it is also used as a gang car, but this time used by the [[San Fierro Rifa]]. In GTA IV, after collecting all thirty cars for [[Stevie]] he agrees to purchase cars from [[Niko Bellic]], with the Stallion fetching $2,200.

Its handling varies somewhat in each game. In [[Grand Theft Auto III]], the Stallion has reasonable acceleration, though its rear wheel drive layout and huge amount of low-down torque meant it was easy to perform doughnuts and wheel-spin when taking off. The GTA Vice City version is altogether slower than the GTA III rendition; however, its tail-happy traits remained. In GTA San Andreas, it handles much like the [[Clover]] and [[Sabre]] but fishtailing rarely occurs. The vehicle also appears in GTA Liberty City Stories and GTA Vice City Stories, where they have similar attributes to the GTA III and GTA Vice City renditions, respectively.

In GTA IV the Stallion is easier to steer, but it will occasionally spin out of control, especially in poor weather conditions such as rain; however, it can reach higher speeds than the Stallions in previous GTA games, and it is classified as a muscle car. With good power, handling, and acceleration it is easily one of the top three muscle cars in [[Grand Theft Auto IV]]. Care should be taken through corners though; despite having good grip, the Stallion is awful at keeping flat through corners.

In GTA III, GTA Advance and GTA Liberty City Stories, a variant of the Stallion is featured in the game. Called [[Diablo Stallion]], it is the primary gang car used by the [[Diablos]]. In GTA San Andreas, it is also used as a gang car, but this time used by the [[San Fierro Rifa]]. In GTA IV, it is the only car in the [[HD Universe]] to retain its original design. The Stallion does not appear in GTA V.

The sides bear the aggressive, heavily creased, lines of 1970-1972 Oldsmobile Cutlasses; the rear end looks like that of a 1971 or '72 Cutlass (it says "STALLION" above the bumper much like it says "OLDSMOBILE") with extra lights. The headlights are surrounded by headlight bezels similar to those on a '68 Cutlass. Its engine is a 347ci (5.6 litre) V8. It became the only known car in this era that doesn't have any drastic changes to its design and body.

The GTA Vice City version is altogether slower than the GTA III rendition; however, its tail-happy traits remained. In GTA San Andreas, it handles much like the [[Clover]] and [[Sabre]] but fishtailing rarely occurs. It has a 5.7 liter 350ci V8 with 240 HP and a top speed of 128 mph. The vehicle also appears in GTA Liberty City Stories and GTA Vice City Stories, where they have similar attributes to the GTA III and GTA Vice City renditions, respectively.

  +
===GTA IV===
  +
  +
In GTA IV the Stallion is easier to steer, but it will occasionally spin out of control, especially in poor weather conditions such as rain. With good power, handling, and acceleration it is easily one of the top three muscle cars in [[Grand Theft Auto IV]].

Its top speed is 152 mph (245 km/h).
  +
  +
===GTA Chinatown Wars===
  +
  +
The GTA Chinatown Wars rendition adopts a combination of performance traits of previous renditions, with high top speed and acceleration and good steering, but very poor grip as a result of excess torque, resulting in the car skidding frequently, even in slight turns. It competes with [[Dukes (car)|Dukes.]]
  +
  +
In GTA 1, the Stallion's base export value tops up at $600 if the car is delivered in mint condition. In GTA IV, the car may be sold at [[S&M Auto Sales]] for a maximum of $2,200 (in perfect condition) after completion of [[Stevie's Car Thefts]].

* The Stallion name, when first adopted in GTA 1, appears to be a play of the Ford Mustang name. Both names refer to equestrian terms for horses that are not fully domesticated. A "[[wp:mustang (horse)|mustang]]" is "a free-roaming feral horse of the North American west that first descended from horses brought to the Americas by the Spanish", while a "[[wp:Stallion|Stallion]]" is simply "a male horse that has not been neutered, castrated, or gelded".

** Even trough the Stallion does not appear in GTA:London 1969, the Crapi from GTA:London is sometimes referred as the Stallion's British variant. Both cars are based on Ford's famous muscle car models.

* The Stallion is one of the earliest in-game cars to be featured on a box art of a Grand Theft Auto game, appearing in several versions of GTA III cover arts.

* The interior of the GTA IV Stallion features some writing and a photograph of an old-styled steamroller taped to the dashboard, its purpose being largely unknown. The same interior is reused in the [[Rhapsody]], but the photograph is substituted with one depicting what seems to be Wayne and Garth from [[wp:Wayne's World (film)|Wayne's World]].

  +
* Under the "[[Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars|Chinatown Wars]]" section of the [[Rockstar Games Social Club]] website, members may download a printable papercraft model of a Stallion. The papercraft model features the [[Vapid]] logo on its grille instead of the [[Classique]] logo and nameplate. It bears more of a likeness to a 1970–74 Plymouth Barracuda and 1969–1973 Ford Mustang, while the grille emulates a 1964/1965 Mustang's.
  +
* In some games, if the Stallions tail lights are damaged, the game may render the tail lights as undamaged, but they still will not work.

**'''''GTA IV''''': [[Liberty Rock Radio 97.8]].
  +
* In GTA San Andreas, it shares its engine sound with the [[Sabre]].
  +
* [[Niko Bellic|Niko]] is shown driving a blue Stallion during the second trailer for GTA IV.
  +
* There is a glitch that occurs with a Stallion in GTA III after viewing a replay. Get a Stallion with a hood, drive around for few minutes, then press F1 for replay. After replay, the hood should be gone.
  +
* It has very low sex appeal in [[Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas]].
  +
* Despite being equipped with a V8 engine, the Stallion emits a typical engine noise of a four-cylinder engine in all GTA III era games except in GTA San Andreas.
  +
* If you enable the Ghost Town cheat in GTA San Andreas (which will greatly reduce the traffic density) and start the mission [[Bloodring]], you will notice that most of the opponent's cars were Stallions.
  +
* The Stallion in [[GTA IV]] doesn't have any reversing lights, similar to the [[Intruder]] and the [[Contender]].

The Classique Stallion is a recurring convertible muscle car that has appeared in the following games:

DescriptionEdit

GTAIV-Stallion-Badges

The Stallion was first featured in GTA 1, in which it appears as a hardtop design and is one of the faster cars on the road; however, it didn't appear again in the series until GTA III. In true muscle car fashion, it has V8 power channeled to the rear wheels.

In GTA III, GTA Advance and GTA Liberty City Stories, a variant of the Stallion is featured in the game. Called Diablo Stallion, it is the primary gang car used by the Diablos. In GTA San Andreas, it is also used as a gang car, but this time used by the San Fierro Rifa. In GTA IV, it is the only car in the HD Universe to retain its original design. The Stallion does not appear in GTA V.

DesignEdit

Grand Theft Auto 1Edit

In GTA 1, it resembles a 1964 Pontiac GTO.

3D UniverseEdit

In the 3D Universe , it appears to be based on a 1964-1973 Ford Mustang, but the grille resembles a 1969/1970 Oldsmobile Cutlass (also the Oldsmobile 442) (creating a look similar to an Oldsmobile Omega), and the back bumper is based on those of '70-'72 Cutlasses (but this is less obvious in the GTA SA rendition).

HD UniverseEdit

In GTA IV, it's manufactured by Classique and resembles a much bigger muscle car rather than a pony car. The grille and lights remain almost unchanged but the chassis is more like 1968-69 Oldsmobile Cutlasses with
Stallion badges
the lights looking like a 1970 Plymouth Hemi Barracuda. The sides bear the aggressive, heavily creased, lines of 1970-1972 Oldsmobile Cutlasses; the rear end looks like that of a 1971 or '72 Cutlass (it says "STALLION" above the bumper much like it says "OLDSMOBILE") with extra lights. The headlights are surrounded by headlight bezels similar to those on a '68 Cutlass. Its engine is a 347ci (5.6 litre) V8. It became the only known car in this era that doesn't have any drastic changes to its design and body.

PerformanceEdit

3D UniverseEdit

Its handling varies in each game. In Grand Theft Auto III, the Stallion has reasonable acceleration, though its rear wheel drive layout and huge amount of low-down torque meant it was easy to perform professional-grade drifts around corners, doughnuts and wheel-spin when taking off. The GTA Vice City version is altogether slower than the GTA III rendition; however, its tail-happy traits remained. In GTA San Andreas, it handles much like the Clover and Sabre but fishtailing rarely occurs. It has a 5.7 liter 350ci V8 with 240 HP and a top speed of 128 mph. The vehicle also appears in GTA Liberty City Stories and GTA Vice City Stories, where they have similar attributes to the GTA III and GTA Vice City renditions, respectively.

GTA IVEdit

In GTA IV the Stallion is easier to steer, but it will occasionally spin out of control, especially in poor weather conditions such as rain. With good power, handling, and acceleration it is easily one of the top three muscle cars in Grand Theft Auto IV. Care should be taken through corners though; despite having good grip, the Stallion is awful at keeping flat through corners. The Stallion can also be quite bumpy on the road. Its top speed is 152 mph (245 km/h).

GTA Chinatown WarsEdit

The GTA Chinatown Wars rendition adopts a combination of performance traits of previous renditions, with high top speed and acceleration and good steering, but very poor grip as a result of excess torque, resulting in the car skidding frequently, even in slight turns. It competes with Dukes.

In GTA 1, the Stallion's base export value tops up at $600 if the car is delivered in mint condition. In GTA IV, the car may be sold at S&M Auto Sales for a maximum of $2,200 (in perfect condition) after completion of Stevie's Car Thefts.

Variants Edit

  • A unique black Stallion with a blue or normal undertone is seen during the mission "Escuela of the Streets" for Manny Escuela, you can take it after the mission and save it in a parking space. This color cannot be obtained at Pay 'N' Spray.
  • The Diablo Stallion (also known simply as the "Diablo") is a gang variant of the Stallion preferred by the Diablos in GTA III, GTA Advance and GTA Liberty City Stories, being distinctive by its flame paintjob and exposed engine block.
  • A completely black Stallion is driven by Martinez's men in the mission Marked Men in GTA VCS.
  • A rare purple Stallion can be found during the first encounter with Jeff in GTA IV, or also completley randomly in Hove Beach. (Found in GTA 4 and The Lost and Damned, unknown for The Ballad of Gay Tony.)
  • A unique Stallion with a luster appears at the end of Off Route in The Lost and Damned, it's parked nearby after the mission is complete or can be taken and destory or abandon the prison bus to fail the mission, it's unlocked so it's free to store at any safehouse.

Trivia Edit

  • The Stallion name, when first adopted in GTA 1, appears to be a play of the Ford Mustang name. Both names refer to equestrian terms for horses that are not fully domesticated. A "mustang" is "a free-roaming feral horse of the North American west that first descended from horses brought to the Americas by the Spanish", while a "Stallion" is simply "a male horse that has not been neutered, castrated, or gelded".
  • The Stallion is the only car manufactured by Classique in GTA IV.
  • A version of the Ford Mustang called the Stallion Special was sold exclusively by Mainway Ford in 1967.
  • The Stallion is the longest surviving car in the GTA series, and also one of the most frequently featured civilian cars in the series, appearing in 8 out of 12 GTA games, the exceptions being the two GTA London expansion packs, GTA 2, GTA V and GTA Advance, although the Diablo appears in the latter.
    • Even trough the Stallion does not appear in GTA:London 1969, the Crapi from GTA:London is sometimes referred as the Stallion's British variant. Both cars are based on Ford's famous muscle car models.
  • The Stallion, the Z-Type, the Stinger and the Tour Bus are the only vehicles from the 2D Universe to appear in the HD Universe.
    • Unlike the Z-Type, the Stinger, and the Tour Bus, the Stallion does not make its return in GTA V.
  • The Stallion is one of the earliest in-game cars to be featured on a box art of a Grand Theft Auto game, appearing in several versions of GTA III cover arts.
  • The Stallion has made non-GTA cameos in multiple games produced by Rockstar Games:
  • The interior of the GTA IV Stallion features some writing and a photograph of an old-styled steamroller taped to the dashboard, its purpose being largely unknown. The same interior is reused in the Rhapsody, but the photograph is substituted with one depicting what seems to be Wayne and Garth from Wayne's World.
Stallion-GTACW-papercraft

A rendering of the papercraft Stallion from the GTA Chinatown Wars section of the Rockstar Games Social Club.

  • Under the "Chinatown Wars" section of the Rockstar Games Social Club website, members may download a printable papercraft model of a Stallion. The papercraft model features the Vapid logo on its grille instead of the Classique logo and nameplate. It bears more of a likeness to a 1970–74 Plymouth Barracuda and 1969–1973 Ford Mustang, while the grille emulates a 1964/1965 Mustang's.
  • In some games, if the Stallions tail lights are damaged, the game may render the tail lights as undamaged, but they still will not work.
  • The Stallion plays the following radio stations by default when entered:
  • In GTA San Andreas, it shares its engine sound with the Sabre.
  • Niko is shown driving a blue Stallion during the second trailer for GTA IV.
  • There is a glitch that occurs with a Stallion in GTA III after viewing a replay. Get a Stallion with a hood, drive around for few minutes, then press F1 for replay. After replay, the hood should be gone.
  • It has very low sex appeal in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.
  • Despite being equipped with a V8 engine, the Stallion emits a typical engine noise of a four-cylinder engine in all GTA III era games except in GTA San Andreas.
  • If you enable the Ghost Town cheat in GTA San Andreas (which will greatly reduce the traffic density) and start the mission Bloodring, you will notice that most of the opponent's cars were Stallions.
  • The Stallion in GTA IV doesn't have any reversing lights, similar to the Intruder and the Contender.
