YakuzaStinger-GTA3-front

A Yakuza Stinger in GTA III (Rear quarter view).

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.

Description

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.

Performance of the Yakuza Stinger in GTA III and GTA Liberty City Stories 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 in GTA III is also all-wheel-drive, in comparison to a conventional Stinger, which is rear-wheel-drive (The GTA Liberty City Stories rendition only has rear wheel drive). The Yakuza Stinger is thus less prone to tailspins than the Stinger.

Asuka's Yakuza

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

Locations

GTA III

  • In Asuka Kasen's condo parking lot in Newport, Staunton Island. There will be 2 of them; one near the entrance to the porch, another near the main entrance of the building.
  • Car park of the AMCo. building in Torrington, Staunton Island
  • Kenji's Casino in Torrington, Staunton Island (sometimes locked)
  • Staunton Plaza in Fort Staunton, Staunton Island (after Grand Theft Aero). There will be 3 Yakuza Stingers, 2 in front of the 2nd building that houses a health and armor pickup, and another near the lift.
  • The vehicle also spawns anywhere in Torrington, be careful by jacking the cars because, like other gang members, if another Yakuza Stinger is nearby, he will pursue you and crash in your car, and Yakuza members will/may shoot at you.
