Albany has two logos that are widely used: a silver "A" with a crown within, and a crowned rectangular emblem. The first logo is mainly used on older models (with the exception of the [[Cavalcade]], [[Cavalcade FXT]], and [[Alpha]]) and the second is typically used on much more modern models, but since their oldest car shown so far, the [[Roosevelt]], uses the logo for newer cars, it is likely that it was the original logo that was replaced and later brought back into use (assuming its use on the [[Roosevelt]] wasn't an oversight).

MANUFACTURER
Name-IV-Albany2
Logo-IV-Albany1

Albany is an automotive company in the HD Universe of the GTA series.

OverviewEdit

Name-IV-Albany1
Logo-IV-Albany2

Albany alternate logo.

The company is a luxury automaker, based on Cadillac. Albany, along with Bravado, Declasse, and Vapid, is one of the largest manufacturers in the HD Universe.

Albany has two logos that are widely used: a silver "A" with a crown within, and a crowned rectangular emblem. The first logo is mainly used on older models (with the exception of the Cavalcade, Cavalcade FXT, and Alpha) and the second is typically used on much more modern models, but since their oldest car shown so far, the Roosevelt, uses the logo for newer cars, it is likely that it was the original logo that was replaced and later brought back into use (assuming its use on the Roosevelt wasn't an oversight).
