The Yakuza Stinger is the Yakuza customized gang car. The car appears in the three Liberty City based games: Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto Advance (as the Yakuza) and Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories. Prior to the release of GTA III, the car was also known as the "Yakuza"; this name remains in use on the official Rockstar North website.

DescriptionEdit

The Yakuza Stinger is a variant of the Stinger, sporting a red and white paintjob in both GTA III GTA Liberty City Stories (a red and baby blue paintjob in the beta version) as well as an additional spoiler. It also appears only in hardtop form, as opposed to some Stingers, which are depicted as rag-top convertibles with or without a top up. It was possibly resembling Porsche Boxster S due to raised performance.

In GTA Advance, the Yakuza Stinger can appear with three paintjobs - a red and white one, a yellow and red one, and a blue and green one. It has also a different engine sound than in the other two Liberty City related games.

PerformanceEdit

Performance of the Yakuza Stinger in GTA III is equivalent to the Stinger's, if not better. Its speed is considerably moderate by sports car standards, coupled with stable handling and good grip. The Yakuza Stinger is also all-wheel-drive, in comparison to a conventional Stinger, which is rear-wheel-drive. The Yakuza Stinger is thus less prone to tailspins than the Stinger, which is ideal for street racing.

In GTA Liberty City Stories, its performs even better, with higher acceleration and top speed, making it one of the fastest cars in LCS along with Infernus and Cheetah. Compared to other sports cars, the Yakuza Stinger is exceptionally durable and can take more damage before destroyed.

Asuka's YakuzaEdit

Asukamobile-GTAA

The Asukamobile in GTA Advance.

In Grand Theft Auto Advance the player can receive Asuka Kasen's Yakuza (dubbed the "Asukamobile") in the mission Down The River. To get the car you need to complete the mission with at least 19 Mafia thugs. The car has an unique metallic blue color, and it handles much better than the normal Yakuza. It is the second fastest vehicle in the game along with the FBI Car, their maximum speed is 187 MPH. If the player gets the car to Pay 'n' Spray it will lose it's unique color. It also should be noted that it's impossible to store the vehicle until the end of the game, since the player can't use garages to store vehicles.

Trivia Edit
