Candy red Presidente (Backup Presidente).
You can help by adding some relevant images or discussing changes on the talk page.
The Presidente is largely based on the first generation Cadillac CTS, though the headlights resemble those of the second generation CTS, albeit widened, and the grille resembles that of a first generation Ford Fusion. After collecting all thirty cars for Stevie, he agrees to purchase cars from Niko Bellic, with the Presidente fetching $2,500. The Presidente is equipped with a GPS system with a female voice, but only if the player leaves the "selected cars" (default) option in the audio menu.

The Presidente's apparent 4.5 L (275ci/4500cc) V10 (according to Autoeroticar.com) engine is coupled to a 5-speed gearbox in a RWD configuration. Acceleration is fair, but, due to its weight, can be rather sluggish on slopes. Handling is fair, but suffers from mild under-steer due to the up-front weight of the heavy engine. The suspension is somewhat soft, being able to absorb all the bumps on the road, but it does provide heaps of body roll which can lead to rollovers. Braking is above average, and ABS is standard across the line-up. Crash deformation is surprisingly poor for this vehicle, and after one to two crashes it is known to pull to one side. The engine is somewhat sturdy and can survive a few impacts before failing.

A Korean variants of the Presidente can be seen driven by the Korean Mob. This variant has a different front grille with a "supercharged" badge, black rims, dark blue metallic paint, and a rear spoiler. These vehicles are based on the Cadillac CTS-V. There is a glitch where if the vehicle is repainted in a Pay 'n' Spray, the rims will sometimes remain black.
Dwayne's backup may arrive in a unique candy red Presidente (as well as a Patriot or a PMP 600, also sporting the same color). The player is free to take the car, as the gang members "disown" the car upon arrival.
A police variant of the Presidente, known as the Police Stinger, is also available in The Ballad of Gay Tony DLC, although the car is only found in the car parking lot of some police stations, and is not actually used by police officers on the street. It can only be found on multiplayer, such as free mode.
The Police Stinger's front end has been modified and its performance is vastly improved, as well as featuring police lights and a unique paitjob.

- Presidente is Italian, Spanish and Portuguese for President.
- In The Lost and Damned mission "Roman's Holiday" a black Presidente owned by Malc can be used to kidnap Roman Bellic.
- The name Presidente could be a parody of the name of the Nissan President luxury sedan, which is the competitor of Toyota Crown, the real-life counterpart of the Admiral.
- The name Presidente could refer to the Presidential Limousine, which is a Cadillac. The naming related to Presidential transportation is also featured on the Cavalcade, which is also based on a Cadillac.
Grand Theft Auto IV
The Lost and Damned
- In The Lost and Damned mission "Roman's Holiday", the black Presidente Malc shown in the cutscene has a trunk spoiler, but the car Johnny drives in the mission is the spoilerless normal edition. This is due to a glitch when using car models in cutscenes where the game spawns the cars with all its extras (such as spoilers, convertible tops, grilles, etc.).
