As the name implies, the FBI Washington is a variant of the [[Washington]] adopted for use by the [[Federal Bureau of Investigation|FBI]].
When first introduced in GTA Vice City, the FBI Washington sports only minor differences that distinguish it from a conventional Washington. The most evident difference is its unique body color (dark gray in GTA Vice City, and white in GTA Vice City Stories), as well as side trims that run from the front to the back and over the wheel wells. The FBI Washington is more stable than the [[Police Car]] in the game, which has a tendency to roll on the slightest grade. The player may also use the FBI Washington to start [[Vigilante]] missions.
 
   
Unlike the [[FBI Rancher]], the FBI Washington emits a siren but has neither a visible strobe light nor an actual light emitted from the where the "invisible" strobe light should be. This flaw was rectified in GTA Vice City Stories, in which a red light is emitted from the dashboard (without an actual strobe light visible). Regardless, the FBI Washington's siren can be used to clear the road ahead from traffic. The FBI Washington is a undercover car but due to its only kind with it's dark gray body color its stands out from the rest of the traffic.

The FBI Washington is a law enforcement sedan in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories.

Design Edit

As the name implies, the FBI Washington is a variant of the Washington adopted for use by the FBI.

Introduced in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, the FBI Washington sports only minor differences that distinguish it from a conventional Washington. The most evident difference is its unique dark gray color, as well as side trims that run from the front to the back and over the wheel wells. Unlike the FBI Rancher, the FBI Washington emits a siren but has neither a visible strobe light nor an actual light emitted from the where the "invisible" strobe light should be.

The vehicle reappears in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, this time with a white color. Unlike its previous appearance, the vehicle's siren has been rectified, in which a red light is emitted from the dashboard (without an actual strobe light visible).
