  +
The '''Admiral''' is a 4-door executive sedan featured in both [[3D Universe]] and [[HD Universe]]. It is manufactured by [[Dundreary]] in the HD Universe.
   
{{q|Efficient German cruiser. Popular with commuter belt middle men.|GTA Vice City Website}}
+
==Design==
  +
In the 3D Universe, it is a compact executive car, while in the HD Universe, it is completely redesigned into a larger, luxury car.
   
The [[Dundreary]] Admiral is a 4-door sedan featured in [[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City]], [[Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas]], [[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories]], [[Grand Theft Auto IV]] and [[Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars]].
+
===3D Universe===
  +
In ''[[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City]]'', ''[[Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas]]'' and ''[[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories]]'', the car resembles a [[wp:Mercedes-Benz W201|1982-1993 Mercedes-Benz 190]], with a front fascia similar to the larger [[wp:Mercedes-Benz W123|W123]] and the rear inspired by a [[wp:BMW 3 Series (E30)|BMW 3 Series E30]]. In ''GTA San Andreas'', it appears to feature a minor 1990s facelift, although in reality, at this point of time, the 190 was replaced by the newer [[wp:Mercedes-Benz C-Class (W202)|Mercedes-Benz W202 C-Class]]. The design remains unchanged throughout [[3D Universe]].
   
  +
===''Grand Theft Auto IV''===
  +
In ''[[Grand Theft Auto IV]]'' the [[Dundreary]] Admiral sports a completely different design with no reminiscence to the previous renditions. It is now designed as a large executive car similar to the [[Washington]]. The car features a Japanese-American design that is mainly resembles a cross between a [[wp:Mercury Grand Marquis|2003-2011 Mercury Grand Marquis]] and a [[wp:Toyota Crown Majesta|2003 Toyota Crown Majesta]], with minor influences from the [[wp:Mercedes-Benz W140|W140 Mercedes-Benz S-Class]], particularly the side accents. Interestingly, the Admiral appears to be a long wheelbase model.
   
== Performance ==
+
===''Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars''===
  +
In [[Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars]], the design depends of the platform:
  +
*In the DS version, The Admiral resembles the [[wp:Mercedes-Benz W124| W124 Mercedes-Benz E-Class]], and as such, it is considered as a predecessor of the [[Schafter]].
  +
*In the PSP version, the car appears to be stylised on the [[wp:Ford Crown Victoria|1992-1997 Ford Crown Victoria]], which is very similar to the [[Stanier]]. It is now closer to the GTA IV rendition than the DS version was.
   
In the GTA III-era, performance wise, the car is generally acceptable with light weight, stable handling, and good acceleration and top speed, to the point it is offered as a starter car which the player may first control in GTA Vice City. Surprisingly, it is front-wheel drive, in contrast to the E-Class or Volvo 200 which are both rear-wheel drive, making it quite suspectible to understeer. The GTA Vice City Stories's Admiral has a different engine from San Andreas and Vice city renditions.

==Performance==
  +
===3D Universe===
  +
In the 3D Universe, performance wise, the car is generally acceptable with light weight, stable handling, and good acceleration and top speed, to the point it is offered as a starter car which the player may first control in GTA Vice City. Surprisingly, it is front-wheel drive, in contrast to the Mercedes 190 or BMW E30 which are both rear-wheel drive, making it quite susceptible to understeer. The GTA Vice City and GTA San Andreas renditions has the same engine sound as the [[Sentinel]], implying it is turbocharged, but the GTA Vice City Stories rendition is different, emitting the same sound as the [[Taxi]] and is not turbocharged, reflecting the game's setting in [[1984]]. All renditions are equipped with what sounds to be a four-cylinder engine.
  +
  +
===''Grand Theft Auto IV''===
  +
In ''GTA IV'', it is powered by what sounds to be a large V8 engine, with a RWD configuration coupled to a 5-speed transmission. Acceleration is average and handling is as to be expected; the sheer weight and the comfort-oriented suspension does have its disadvantages. The top speed is rather impressive for its type, however, it takes a long time to stop the heavy saloon completely after letting off the throttle. The Admiral, however, is very resilient to crashes thanks to its bulky construction. The weight is also useful for ramming other vehicles off the road.

In GTA IV, it is powered by a large V8 engine with a RWD configuration coupled to a 5-speed transmission. Acceleration is good but not great (0-60mph in 7.8 seconds), and handling is as to be expected; the sheer weight and the comfort-oriented suspension does have its disadvantages. The top speed is a rather impressive 172 mph (276kmh). Despite ABS as standard, it takes a long time to stop the heavy saloon completely. The Admiral, however, is very resilient to crashes thanks to its bulky construction. The weight is also useful for ramming other vehicles off the road. The Admiral is rather rare, it is more common to find it in limo form, the [[Stretch]].
+
===Triads===
  +
The [[Algonquin Triads|Triads]] are depicted to use the Admiral as one of their cars in [[Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars]], but they are never used (except in [[Yu Jian]] ), but are instead spawned around [[Cerveza Heights]] and other nearby places from the start. The violet-white car sports upgraded acceleration and top speed as well as a smoother engine sound and a horn of the higher performance cars like the [[Banshee]].

====''Grand Theft Auto: Vice City''====
  +
*An unique white color Admiral is the car of [[Ken Rosenberg]]. It can be stolen after [[In The Beginning...]].
  +
*A heavier Admiral is seen in [[Jury Fury]], but it is unobtainable.
  +
*An unique silver color Admiral with the unique traits of All-Proof (the vehicles receives no damage everywhere) and Pop-Proof (the vehicle's tires cannot be popped by any means) can be acquired in [[Guardian Angels]]. It's of [[Ricardo Diaz]].
  +
*Unique black Admirals can be stolen in [[Check Out At The Check In]] and in [[Loose Ends]].
   
In GTA Vice City, GTA San Andreas, GTA Vice City Stories, the car resembles a 1980s [[wp:Mercedes-Benz W123|Mercedes-Benz E-Class (W123)]], with a front facia similar to the [[wp:Volvo_200_Series|Volvo 240]].<ref>[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:%2780-%2782_Volvo_240DL_Sedan.JPG]</ref><ref>[http://www.neoseeker.com/forums/3496/t237200-real-life-cars-vice-city-cars-similarities/2.htm]</ref> In GTA San Andreas, it appears to feature a minor 1990s facelift, although in reality, at this point of time, the W123 was replaced by the [[wp:Mercedes-Benz W124|Mercedes-Benz W124]].

In GTA IV, the Admiral sports a completely different design with no reminiscence to the previous renditions. Gone with the Mercedes appearance, it is now based on the [[wp:Mercury_Grand_Marquis#Fourth_generation_.282003.E2.80.932011.29|2003-2011 Mercury Grand Marquis]] with taillights from the [[wp:Toyota Crown|11th generation Toyota Crown]], having some minor influences from the [[wp:Audi A8|2001 Audi A8]].
+
====''Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas''====
In GTA Chinatown Wars, the Admiral still retains the Mercury Grand Marquis design, but a different year, particularly the 1983-1991 model.

"Efficient German cruiser. Popular with commuter belt middle men."
―GTA Vice City Website.

The Admiral is a 4-door executive sedan featured in both 3D Universe and HD Universe. It is manufactured by Dundreary in the HD Universe.

DesignEdit

In the 3D Universe, it is a compact executive car, while in the HD Universe, it is completely redesigned into a larger, luxury car.

3D UniverseEdit

In Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, the car resembles a 1982-1993 Mercedes-Benz 190, with a front fascia similar to the larger W123 and the rear inspired by a BMW 3 Series E30. In GTA San Andreas, it appears to feature a minor 1990s facelift, although in reality, at this point of time, the 190 was replaced by the newer Mercedes-Benz W202 C-Class. The design remains unchanged throughout 3D Universe.

Grand Theft Auto IVEdit

In Grand Theft Auto IV the Dundreary Admiral sports a completely different design with no reminiscence to the previous renditions. It is now designed as a large executive car similar to the Washington. The car features a Japanese-American design that is mainly resembles a cross between a 2003-2011 Mercury Grand Marquis and a 2003 Toyota Crown Majesta, with minor influences from the W140 Mercedes-Benz S-Class, particularly the side accents. Interestingly, the Admiral appears to be a long wheelbase model.

Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown WarsEdit

In Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, the design depends of the platform:

PerformanceEdit

3D UniverseEdit

In the 3D Universe, performance wise, the car is generally acceptable with light weight, stable handling, and good acceleration and top speed, to the point it is offered as a starter car which the player may first control in GTA Vice City. Surprisingly, it is front-wheel drive, in contrast to the Mercedes 190 or BMW E30 which are both rear-wheel drive, making it quite susceptible to understeer. The GTA Vice City and GTA San Andreas renditions has the same engine sound as the Sentinel, implying it is turbocharged, but the GTA Vice City Stories rendition is different, emitting the same sound as the Taxi and is not turbocharged, reflecting the game's setting in 1984. All renditions are equipped with what sounds to be a four-cylinder engine.

Grand Theft Auto IVEdit

In GTA IV, it is powered by what sounds to be a large V8 engine, with a RWD configuration coupled to a 5-speed transmission. Acceleration is average and handling is as to be expected; the sheer weight and the comfort-oriented suspension does have its disadvantages. The top speed is rather impressive for its type, however, it takes a long time to stop the heavy saloon completely after letting off the throttle. The Admiral, however, is very resilient to crashes thanks to its bulky construction. The weight is also useful for ramming other vehicles off the road.

StretchEdit

Main article: Stretch

In Grand Theft Auto IV, the Stretch is a stretch limousine variant of the Admiral.

TriadsEdit

The Triads are depicted to use the Admiral as one of their cars in Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, but they are never used (except in Yu Jian ), but are instead spawned around Cerveza Heights and other nearby places from the start. The violet-white car sports upgraded acceleration and top speed as well as a smoother engine sound and a horn of the higher performance cars like the Banshee.
