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.


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.

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.

In GTA Chinatown Wars, the Admiral retains the performance from GTA IV. There is a purple and white Triad variant on which sports upgraded acceleration and top speed as well as a smoother engine sound.


In GTA Vice City, GTA San Andreas, GTA Vice City Stories, the car resembles a 1980s Mercedes-Benz E-Class (W123), with a front facia similar to the Volvo 240.[1][2] 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 Mercedes-Benz W124. The design remains unchanged throughout GTA III era.

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 2003-2011 Mercury Grand Marquis with taillights from the 11th generation Toyota Crown, having some minor influences from the 2001 Audi A8. In GTA Chinatown Wars, the Admiral still retains the Mercury Grand Marquis design, but a different year, particularly the 1983-1991 model.
