{{Quote|First manufactured in 1960, the Stinger quickly became a car synonymous with the hard-living Vinewood playboys of the silver screen. Literally hundreds of impressionable young starlets got drunkenly deflowered against their will on the hood of this beauty and then later ended up with a face through the windshield. $1 million buys you more than just a used car without power steering - it buys you a piece of history. The interior still reeks of bourbon and cigarettes.|[[Legendary Motorsport]] webpage}}

In GTA III and Liberty City Stories, the vehicle is heavily based on two cars: [[wp:Pontiac Solstice|Pontiac Solstice Concept (2001)]], and the [[wp:Porsche Boxster|early Porsche Boxster]]. There is also a bit of inspiration for the roof from three different cars, who all make up in the roof modeling: [[wp:BMW Z8|BMW Z8]], [[wp:Mazda MX-5|Mazda MX-5 Miata]] and [[wp:Honda S2000|Honda S2000]]. For the bottom part of the front bumper, there is a heavy resemblance to the [[wp:Toyota MR2 Spyder|Toyota MR2 Spyder]], which also is the source for the rear bumper completely. The paintjobs appear out to be custom.

=== GTA III — GTA Vice City Stories ===

===''Grand Theft Auto V''===
In GTA III and GTA Liberty City Stories, the Stinger appears in hard-top and convertible form. Its performance is better than most vehicles, but is the least powerful of all the 2-door sports cars, with little tendency to drift. Its Yakuza variant, the [[Yakuza Stinger]], handles better and is all-wheel-drive, as opposed to the stock cars, which are rear-drive. The Stinger in both games is based on a [[wp:Porsche Boxster#986|Porsche Boxster]] or possibly a [[wp:Toyota MR2#Third generation (MkIII) ZZW30 (2000–2007)|Toyota MR2 Spyder]]. The front of the car and also the total shape also has a likeness to the [[wp:Pontiac Solstice|Pontiac Solstice]]; this is certainly just coincidental, given that the Solstice was not revealed until 2004, 3 years after GTA III went on sale and 4 years after the game went into production.
+
Now manufactured by [[Grotti]] in [[Grand Theft Auto V]], the Stinger assumes the design of a classic grand tourer, rather than a modern sports car. The car's design is mostly based on the [[wp:Ferrari 250#250 GT Spyder California SWB|Ferrari 250 GT California Spyder]] with design cues from the [[wp:Intermeccanica|Intermeccanica Omega]] and the Intermeccanica Italia GT. As of [[The High Life Update]], this car is available for purchase with or without roof.
   
In GTA Vice City and GTA Vice City Stories, it resembles a 1968-1973 [[wp:Ferrari Daytona|Ferrari Daytona]] Spyder, an apparent homage to [http://www.autofiends.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/11/ferraridaytona.jpg Sonny Crockett's Ferrari Daytona Spyder replica], yet another one of GTA Vice City's references to [[wp:Miami Vice|Miami Vice]].

In GTA III, its performance is better than most vehicles, but is the least powerful of all the 2-door sports cars, with little tendency to drift. Its Yakuza variant, the [[Yakuza Stinger]], handles better and is all-wheel-drive, as opposed to the stock cars, which are rear-drive.
  +
  +
In Vice City and Vice City Stories, the Stinger in Vice City is amongst the fastest and best handling cars in the game.  The Stinger's FWD drivetrain may be unusual for a high-end sports car, but it allows the car to be more stable during hard acceleration and turning than the RWD drivetrains in some other sports cars (especially in rainy conditions).  This attribute, along with the car's lack of understeer, makes the Stinger ideal for [[Vice Street Racer|racing]]. The only flaw with the car occurs when one uses too much handbrake during turns, which will cause the Stinger to oversteer and overswing its rear end.
  +
It is likely powered by a 6-speed V12, judging by its sound.
  +
  +
===''Grand Theft Auto V''===
  +
In GTA V, the car boasts a relatively high speed and acceleration, on par with several sports coupés such as the [[Feltzer]]. Its 3.0L V8 engine, mounted in a front position, longitudinally, is capable of delivering impressive top speed and acceleration. At high speeds however, oversteer is noticeable, and the car has the tendency to fishtail when turning, and on some occasions powerslide off the road. The vehicle's durability is average, as the car can sustain multiple head-on collisions before failing. The acceleration is beyond all other Sports Classics, as well as its speed, its braking distance is a let down, unlike the [[JB 700]], it seems to take a while to fully come to a stop.

  +
==Trivia==
  +
===General===
  +
* The Stinger has received the second most changes out of any car in the [[GTA Series]]. The first one was the [[Sentinel]], having a unique model in almost every game it appeared in.
  +
*The default radio stations of this Stinger are:
  +
**'''GTA III''': [[Rise FM]] or [[MSX FM]]
  +
**'''GTA Vice City''': [[Wildstyle]]
  +
**'''GTA V''': [[WorldWide FM]]
  +
* Aside from the fact the Stinger in GTA Vice City is based on Sonny Crockett's Ferrari from ''Miami Vice'', several other references to the car from the TV show are present in the game:
  +
** Sonny Crockett used in the first season of the show a boat named Chris Craft Stinger 390x.
  +
** The Stinger shares its name with the Stinger Missile, which was used to blow up Crockett's Ferrari in season 3 of ''Miami Vice''.
  +
** A Stinger is found parked outside the [[Downtown Police Station]] in [[Downtown Vice City]], referencing the car's use on the cop show.
  +
* The Stinger, [[Z-Type]], [[Stallion]], [[Furore GT]], [[Panto]] and the [[Tour Bus]] are the only vehicles from the [[2D Universe]] to appear in the [[HD Universe]].
  +
  +
===2D Universe===
  +
* The Stinger is known as "STINGRAY" in the game files of GTA 2, further referencing towards its real life counterpart; the Corvette Stingray C3.
  +
  +
===''Grand Theft Auto: Vice City''===
  +
*The [[w:c:manhunt:Stinger|GTA Vice City rendition of the Stinger]] made an appearance in [[Manhunt|Manhunt 2]].
  +
* Strangely, in [[GTA Vice City]], the Stinger is front-wheel drive, which is unusual for a sports car.
  +
* Though it is commonly seen in the game, only 121 genuine Ferrari Daytona Spiders were produced in [http://www.rmauctions.com/lots/lot.cfm?lot_id=1049596 real life]. However, replicas were often made from Daytona Coupes (which were 10 times as common) or Chevy Corvettes. The Daytona Spider seen on ''Miami Vice'', for example, was a Corvette-based replica.
  +
  +
===''Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas''===
  +
Even though the Stinger does not appear in [[GTA San Andreas]], a beta model exists within San Andreas' coding. The model is the same as Vice City's, albeit the headlights are different.
  +
  +
===''Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories''===
  +
* In the [[Beta Releases#Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories|beta version of GTA Liberty City Stories]], there was a yellow Stinger supposedly reserved for use by the [[Sicilian Mafia]]. Its was possibly going to be called the Sicilian Stinger. But then it turned into a normal silver/white Stinger for the final version. If this is the case, it is likely due to the already existing [[Yakuza Stinger]].
  +
* In GTA: Liberty City Stories, if the player is armed with a [[Submachine Gun]], the gun will stick out the front windscreen, even if the window is still intact.
   
The Stinger from the Grand Theft Auto mission.
+
===''Grand Theft Auto V''===
  +
* In the GTA V mission [[Pack Man]], a red Stinger can be seen on the [[Packer]]. However, unlike the other five cars, there is no corresponding mission to steal the Stinger, nor is it on the list seen inside Devin's [[Hayes Autos|garage]]. Nothing is known about why it is present, although it is possible [[Lamar Davis]] stole it as dialogue between him and Devin Weston indicates he is working for him or it was in the [[Social Networking|beta mission]] where the player has to steal [[Brucie Kibbutz]]'s Stinger by luring him with a [[Prostitutes|prostitute]].
  +
* The convertible top can't be used in GTA V for unknown reasons.
  +
** For this reason, both the convertible top, and the topless variants, are bought separately in [[GTA Online]].

For other uses, see Stinger (disambiguation).
"First manufactured in 1960, the Stinger quickly became a car synonymous with the hard-living Vinewood playboys of the silver screen. Literally hundreds of impressionable young starlets got drunkenly deflowered against their will on the hood of this beauty and then later ended up with a face through the windshield. $1 million buys you more than just a used car without power steering - it buys you a piece of history. The interior still reeks of bourbon and cigarettes."
Legendary Motorsport webpage

The Stinger is a two-door sports car which first appeared in Grand Theft Auto 1, and recurred throughout the series, in different forms and designs. It is manufactured by Grotti in the HD Universe.

Design Edit

"What a great car. Always wanted one of these."
―GTA Vice City Website.

2D UniverseEdit

In GTA 1, the Stinger based on the 1968-1972 Chevrolet Corvette C3 (the name is a reference to the Corvette Stingray). In GTA 2 it's based on the 1963 Corvette Split-Window. It can only be found in the Industrial District of Anywhere City, and gives the ElectroFingers power-up when crushed.

3D UniverseEdit

In GTA III and Liberty City Stories, the vehicle is heavily based on two cars: Pontiac Solstice Concept (2001), and the early Porsche Boxster. There is also a bit of inspiration for the roof from three different cars, who all make up in the roof modeling: BMW Z8, Mazda MX-5 Miata and Honda S2000. For the bottom part of the front bumper, there is a heavy resemblance to the Toyota MR2 Spyder, which also is the source for the rear bumper completely. The paintjobs appear out to be custom.

In GTA Vice City and GTA Vice City Stories, the Stinger resembles a 1968-1973 Ferrari Daytona Spyder, an apparent homage to Sonny Crockett's Ferrari Daytona Spyder replica and yet another reference to Miami Vice.

A working name given to the Stinger in Grand Theft Auto III is "Shark", as evidenced in the "official" website for Capital Autos [1].

Grand Theft Auto VEdit

Now manufactured by Grotti in Grand Theft Auto V, the Stinger assumes the design of a classic grand tourer, rather than a modern sports car. The car's design is mostly based on the Ferrari 250 GT California Spyder with design cues from the Intermeccanica Omega and the Intermeccanica Italia GT. As of The High Life Update, this car is available for purchase with or without roof.

Performance Edit

2D UniverseEdit

Both iterations handle great, respond well, and stick to the road.

3D UniverseEdit

In GTA III, its performance is better than most vehicles, but is the least powerful of all the 2-door sports cars, with little tendency to drift. Its Yakuza variant, the Yakuza Stinger, handles better and is all-wheel-drive, as opposed to the stock cars, which are rear-drive.

In Vice City and Vice City Stories, the Stinger in Vice City is amongst the fastest and best handling cars in the game.  The Stinger's FWD drivetrain may be unusual for a high-end sports car, but it allows the car to be more stable during hard acceleration and turning than the RWD drivetrains in some other sports cars (especially in rainy conditions).  This attribute, along with the car's lack of understeer, makes the Stinger ideal for racing. The only flaw with the car occurs when one uses too much handbrake during turns, which will cause the Stinger to oversteer and overswing its rear end. It is likely powered by a 6-speed V12, judging by its sound.

Grand Theft Auto VEdit

In GTA V, the car boasts a relatively high speed and acceleration, on par with several sports coupés such as the Feltzer. Its 3.0L V8 engine, mounted in a front position, longitudinally, is capable of delivering impressive top speed and acceleration. At high speeds however, oversteer is noticeable, and the car has the tendency to fishtail when turning, and on some occasions powerslide off the road. The vehicle's durability is average, as the car can sustain multiple head-on collisions before failing. The acceleration is beyond all other Sports Classics, as well as its speed, its braking distance is a let down, unlike the JB 700, it seems to take a while to fully come to a stop.

TriviaEdit

GeneralEdit

  • The Stinger has received the second most changes out of any car in the GTA Series. The first one was the Sentinel, having a unique model in almost every game it appeared in.
  • The default radio stations of this Stinger are:
  • Aside from the fact the Stinger in GTA Vice City is based on Sonny Crockett's Ferrari from Miami Vice, several other references to the car from the TV show are present in the game:
    • Sonny Crockett used in the first season of the show a boat named Chris Craft Stinger 390x.
    • The Stinger shares its name with the Stinger Missile, which was used to blow up Crockett's Ferrari in season 3 of Miami Vice.
    • A Stinger is found parked outside the Downtown Police Station in Downtown Vice City, referencing the car's use on the cop show.
  • The Stinger, Z-TypeStallion, Furore GT, Panto and the Tour Bus are the only vehicles from the 2D Universe to appear in the HD Universe.

2D UniverseEdit

  • The Stinger is known as "STINGRAY" in the game files of GTA 2, further referencing towards its real life counterpart; the Corvette Stingray C3.

Grand Theft Auto: Vice CityEdit

  • The GTA Vice City rendition of the Stinger made an appearance in Manhunt 2.
  • Strangely, in GTA Vice City, the Stinger is front-wheel drive, which is unusual for a sports car.
  • Though it is commonly seen in the game, only 121 genuine Ferrari Daytona Spiders were produced in real life. However, replicas were often made from Daytona Coupes (which were 10 times as common) or Chevy Corvettes. The Daytona Spider seen on Miami Vice, for example, was a Corvette-based replica.

Grand Theft Auto: San AndreasEdit

Even though the Stinger does not appear in GTA San Andreas, a beta model exists within San Andreas' coding. The model is the same as Vice City's, albeit the headlights are different.

Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City StoriesEdit

  • In the beta version of GTA Liberty City Stories, there was a yellow Stinger supposedly reserved for use by the Sicilian Mafia. Its was possibly going to be called the Sicilian Stinger. But then it turned into a normal silver/white Stinger for the final version. If this is the case, it is likely due to the already existing Yakuza Stinger.
  • In GTA: Liberty City Stories, if the player is armed with a Submachine Gun, the gun will stick out the front windscreen, even if the window is still intact.

Grand Theft Auto VEdit

  • In the GTA V mission Pack Man, a red Stinger can be seen on the Packer. However, unlike the other five cars, there is no corresponding mission to steal the Stinger, nor is it on the list seen inside Devin's garage. Nothing is known about why it is present, although it is possible Lamar Davis stole it as dialogue between him and Devin Weston indicates he is working for him or it was in the beta mission where the player has to steal Brucie Kibbutz's Stinger by luring him with a prostitute.
  • The convertible top can't be used in GTA V for unknown reasons.
    • For this reason, both the convertible top, and the topless variants, are bought separately in GTA Online.

See AlsoEdit
