The Albany Police Stinger is based on the [[Albany]] [[Presidente]], but features a unique bodywork and a pearlescent paint job with american decorations, similar to that of the Cadillac CTS-V used by the Bloomfield Hills, Michigan Police Department. The front end has been modified and features new and high intensity discharge headlamps, and a different grille characterized by its chevron-shaped bar in the middle. The front of the car also resembles the holden cruze, but that's probably a coincidence.

Its acceleration is exceptional thanks to its AWD drivetrain (20%-80% front-rear torque distribution). In fact, the Police Stinger's all-wheel drive system is so good, the vehicle outperforms other off-road intended vehicles, providing the driver with traction on all types of roads including damp weather conditions.

The Albany Police Stinger is a high-performance 4-door police car available during multiplayer in The Ballad of Gay Tony.

DesignEdit

The Albany Police Stinger is based on the Albany Presidente, but features a unique bodywork and a pearlescent paint job with american decorations, similar to that of the Cadillac CTS-V used by the Bloomfield Hills, Michigan Police Department. The front end has been modified and features new and high intensity discharge headlamps, and a different grille characterized by its chevron-shaped bar in the middle. The front of the car also resembles the holden cruze, but that's probably a coincidence.

The car's emergency vehicle lighting comes in the form of a slim light bar on the top, and auxiliary lights in the front bumper and rear window. Interestingly, the Stinger has a red and blue light bar on the top of the car, similar to NOOSE and the FIB, and unlike the LCPD, who only have red and white light bars to match with NYPD code. This may be because the Police Stinger was meant to be occupied by one of the two former branches, or not to be used as a standard police car at all. Perhaps it is meant to be the GTA analogue for the real-life D.A.R.E police cars.

Police Stinger's Engine

The Police Stinger's performance is exceptional and it is probably the fastest land vehicle in the HD Universe. Despite having the same supercharged V10 badging as the Korean Mob Presidente variant, it has a noticeably different, smoother and lighter engine note, comparable to that of the civilian Buffalo.

Unlike any other police/civilian vehicle, the Police Stinger can reach speeds of up to 305 mph (498 km/h)[citation/verification needed], which is beyond even exotic supercars such as the Comet, Bullet GT, Infernus or Banshee. Its acceleration is exceptional thanks to its AWD drivetrain (20%-80% front-rear torque distribution). In fact, its all-wheel drive system is so good. the vehicle outperforms other off-road intended vehicles, providing the driver with traction on all types of roads, including damp weather conditions. On the handling front, the Police Stinger is highly responsive, yet handling tends to get twitchy and may suffer from oversteer, due to the high speed it can reach. The vehicle can be easily driven even after tires are punctured, if its not damaged, making it a good escape vehicle to escape from somebody who is shooting at the player.

However, despite it's nature as "the fastest vehicle", other vehicles, particularly the Coquette, can match the speed of the Police Stinger on a straight drag race, like in the airport or Star Junction, but after all, the Police Stinger can surpass these vehicle over time, as the vehicle can reach its top speed quicky.
