"Who doesn't want their own limousine? Possibly the least practical car for navigating a gridlocked urban metropolis but, slap a stripper pole and a margarita machine in the back, and you won't care if your driver takes 3 hours to find a parking space."
Southern San Andreas Super Autos description.

The Stretch is a stretch limousine featured in various GTA games. It is manufactured by Dundreary in GTA IV and Albany in GTA V. However, the name Dundreary Stretch is still present on the GTA V rendition.

Design

The Stretch's design varies in each game, being modeled after the most common American limousines of their respective depicted periods.

3D Universe

"VIPs, mob bosses, major criminals and prom parties love to be seen in one of these."
GTA Vice City Website.

In Grand Theft Auto III and Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories, the Stretch resembles a third generation Lincoln Town Car, with the headlights similar to the BMW 7-series E38.

In Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, The Stretch is based on the 1981-1989 generation Lincoln Town Car, with additional styling cues from the Cadillac Fleetwood and Mercedes-Benz S-Class W116. In the beta version, the exhaust pipes on the Stretch were normal and textured, but in the retail version they are transparent, almost glass-like.

In Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, it resembles the second generation Lincoln Town Car, albeit with headlights, front grille and tail-lights of a Cadillac Fleetwood and DeVille respectively.

The inspiration for Grand Theft Auto Advance Stretch is uncertain due to the lack of detail, but resembles is based on 1981-1989 generation Lincoln Town Car. For some reason, the Stretch in GTA Advance has a truck horn.

In GTA III, GTA Liberty City Stories, it is only available in dark grey, light grey and white, with a black variant available in two GTA III missions and one GTA Vice City Stories mission.

In GTA Vice City, it is only available in white, with the exception of a gold variant used by Candy Suxxx during the mission Martha's Mug Shot, and a black variant used by Avery Carrington during cut-scenes for his missions (unobtainable to the player)

In GTA San Andreas, it is available only in white, but can be modified and painted any color in a Transfender workshop; note, however, that only the upper portion of the Stretch can be given a custom color (one Stretch can be found during the mission "Jizzy" that is black on the lower portion, although obtaining this Stretch is extremely difficult).

In GTA Vice City Stories, the stretch is available in white, gray, dark gray, and red colors. A bulletproof black Stretch is obtained during Kill Phil and is retained afterwards, so it can be parked in a garage and saved after completing the mission. A bulletproof variant can be purchased in Sunshine Autos for $3,000.

In the 3D Universe, the Stretch is considered the most luxurious and expensive 4-door sedan in all games which it appears, even surpassing the faster Sentinel and Washington.

Grand Theft Auto IV

In Grand Theft Auto IV it is essentially the limousine variant of the Dundreary Admiral, which is based on the Mercury Grand Marquis. It now features 5 pillars, with decorative lights on each center pillar, and holds a luxury interior. On the rear, a sports aerial can be seen mounted on the trunk of the vehicle. It bears a TV inside, depicting images of the beta version of the Sultan RS and a vague image of a boat at sea, possibly that of the Dinghy. Because of the use of bloom effects, the latter will appear too bright for one to identify, unless they view it through the Stretch's tinted windscreens, or through inspection of internal files.

GTA IV's Stretch also features durable windows (particularly side windows) unlike most other cars in the game - they can withstand a significant amount of gunfire before shattering. The Stretch comes in numerous tones of white of black. The vehicle will make an audible door ajar sound if a door is open. It can be heard clearly in quiet areas with the volume turned up.

The Stretch 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.

As newer luxury/executive cars were introduced in the HD Universe, the Stretch is no longer considered the most luxurious and expensive 4-door sedan.

Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars

The Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars rendition is identical to its GTA IV appearance, albeit lower quality. It typically spawns in white or black, similar to the aforementioned game.

Grand Theft Auto V

In Grand Theft Auto V, it is the limo variant of the Albany Washington, which is based on the Lincoln Town Car. The Stretch spawns in white, black or pink.

Performance

3D universe

Being a large, multi-passenger vehicle with an extended drive axle due to its length, it has a rear wheel drive layout. Exceptions are the GTA III and GTA Vice City variants which are front wheel drive, therefore, not requiring an extended drive axle and performing better in terms of acceleration and hill climbing. Its length makes it difficult to maneuver through tight spaces and around corners at high speed, and its suspension is too soft, contributing to body roll. Although it may be prone to body roll, the soft suspension also guarantees a very comfortable ride on potholed roads. Its ability to absorb damage is not particularly impressive either, making the Stretch more of a specific-use vehicle, or a status-grabber, and a generally poor choice for primary transportation, or for evading cops. Unfortunately, it can only fit three passengers, and thus cannot be used to transport extra gang members in, like the Coach or Bus can.

Grand Theft Auto IV

The Stretch's performance is a somewhat downgrade from the 3D Universe rendition. Due to it being based on the Admiral, an already heavy vehicle, it is a very heavy limousine and therefore its acceleration is inferior. Its long wheelbase also proves it hard to corner, slowing down for corners is vital. The durability is an improvement thanks to its bulky design and reinforced windows. The low-profile body design also makes it less of a target to enemies.

Grand Theft Auto V

The Stretch's performance seems unchanged from the GTA IV version, except that the vehicle has somewhat better handling, due to the reduced mass. Its top speed is reduced slightly, and acceleration is reduced significantly, even despite the retained drive system and less mass. Gear shifts are slightly higher, thus giving the car less potential in terms of acceleration.

Grand Theft Auto III

  • A black Stretch is only available to use for the missions Salvatore's Called A Meeting and Chaperone. It cannot be found anywhere else in the game.
    • To obtain a unique black Stretch in GTA III in PS2 and Xbox, the player can use the garage glitch. Smash a Pony into Joey's garage, get out and sprint to the garage door. Then you entering the Joey's garage. Get in the black Stretch and you will get into Blue Hell and falling to the nearby road. Get to Callahan bridge and type the flying car cheat, go to Staunton Island through the sea and go to the safehouse. Then save your game.
    • To obtain a unique black Stretch in GTA III in PC, start the mission, go to Callahan Bridge, type flying car cheat, then go to Staunton Island safehouse without destroying it, get inside the safehouse garage, destroy it and you fail the mission, then safe your game.

Grand Theft Auto: Vice City

  • As seen during the opening cut-scenes of the missions Four Iron, Demolition Man, and Two Bit Hit, Avery Carrington appears in possession of a unique black Stretch. The Stretch cannot be obtained in the mission as it appears only in the cut-scenes. But if the player activates the black traffic cheat, and locates a Stretch, they can own one. This particular Stretch also has a different engine sound, identical to the one of the Sentinel.
  • During the mission "Martha's Mug Shot" in GTA Vice City, there is a chance to obtain a specially colored gold Stretch. After Candy is dropped off, the Stretch will park itself on the road just south of Malibu Club. The player can proceed with the mission normally up until the point where a wanted level is received. After clearing the wanted level, the player can obtain the Stretch and proceed to complete the mission normally while in the Stretch. After the mission is passed, the Stretch can be saved normally.

Grand Theft Auto Advance

  • In Grand Theft Auto Advance, during the mission Decoy Disaster, the Stretch was used to distract attackers has a special bright orange paint job not found in normal conditions.

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

All-black Stretch

During the mission "Ice Cold Killa" in GTA San Andreas, there is a completely black Stretch that is available for the player to obtain. To get this start the mission, then go to the Pleasure Domes. There will be two of them parked out front of the club. So you can pick one of them and save it in a safehouse garage. This is extremely easier to obtain the Stretch in the mission Jizzy. If the player wishes, they can continuously take both Stretches, save them at safehouses, and fail the mission, allowing the player to own a large number of black Stretches. Also note that there are two cheats available to get the Stretch; the black traffic cheat, and the Stretch spawn cheat.

White-black Stretch

The unique white Stretch with a black underside can be obtained in GTA San Andreas via the mission "Jizzy" during the last assignment in the mission to kill one of Jizzy's prostitutes who has decided to become a preacher's mistress. Both individuals ride the aforementioned Stretch escorted by a black Huntley, and the player is required to kill the preacher, the prostitute, and their escort.

Due to the nature of the mission, obtaining the Stretch can be difficult; the mission will often result in the Stretch bursting into flames and exploding. Drive-by shooting may be employed, damaging the Stretch; it is also difficult to forcefully stop the vehicle because the player drives a much lighter Broadway, let alone catch up with it; the Stretch will also crash into a sculpture in the middle of the City Hall, thereby possibly resulting the vehicle resting upside down and exploding subsequently.

How to Obtain the White-black Stretch:

  • Try to destroy the Stretch near a safehouse with an active garage, and push the wreckage in.
  • Or try to pin in against an obstruction such as a wall of a building, and shoot the driver in the head with something. Once you do this get in (after you killed the Preacher, and supposedly the prostitute) and do a drive-by on Jizzy's Broadway thereby failing the mission. Then put the Stretch in a garage.
  • Or use the bounty cheat (BAGOWPG). The Stretch stopping and everyone starts to kill you. Kill the Preacher and his men, deactivate the cheat, get in the Stretch and get out again with a door opened, get back to Jizzy's Broadway and the mission is completed. Go to that car again and save in your garage.
  • There is, though, a much easier way: Obtain the Black Stretch (see previous section), then take it to a TransFender, choose "Colors" and put the car's color in white. The bottom will stay black.

The black bottom Stretch also appears in Ice Cold Killa, near Jizzy's Broadway. It is entirely black in this appearance, but features a silver trim on its sides and when modified at Transfender, only the top color will change. Drive it to a garage and return to complete the rest of the mission.

A white limousine was featured on WCTR, "Sensationalist Bullshit".
