The '''Stretch''' is a stretch limousine which has appeared 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===
  +
In ''[[Grand Theft Auto III]]'' and ''[[Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories]]'', the Stretch resembles a [[Wikipedia:Lincoln Town Car#Third_generation|third generation Lincoln Town Car]], with the headlights similar to the [[wp:BMW 7 Series (E38)|BMW 7-series E38]].
  +
  +
In ''[[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City]]'' and ''[[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories]]'', The Stretch is based on the [[Wikipedia:Lincoln Town Car#First_generation|1981-1989 generation Lincoln Town Car]], with additional styling cues from the [[wp:Cadillac Fleetwood|Cadillac Fleetwood]] and [[wp:Mercedes-Benz W116|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 [[Wikipedia:Lincoln Town Car#Second generation|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 [[Wikipedia:Lincoln Town Car#First_generation|1981-1989 generation Lincoln Town Car]] like in [[Vice City (3D Universe)|Vice City]]. For some reason, the Stretch in GTA Advance has a truck horn.
  +
  +
In GTA III, GTA Liberty City Stories, it is available in only dark grey, light grey and white, with a black variant available in two GTA III missions and one VCS mission; in GTA Vice City, it is only available in white, with the exception of a gold variant used by [[Candy Suxxx]] during "[[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 (mission)|Jizzy]]" that is black on the lower portion, although obtaining this Stretch is extremely difficult). In 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 Import Garage|Sunshine Autos]] for $3000.
  +
  +
In the [[3D Universe]], the Stretch is considered as 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 the limousine variant of the [[Dundreary]] [[Admiral]], which is based on the [[wp:Mercury Grand Marquis|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 [[wp:Bloom (shader effect)|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) than 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 "[[Vehicle Features|door ajar]]" dinging noise 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 as 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.
  +
  +
===''Grand Theft Auto V''===
  +
In ''[[Grand Theft Auto V]]'', it is the limo variant of the [[Albany]] [[Washington]], which is based on the [[wp:Lincoln Town Car|Lincoln Town Car]]. The Stretch comes in either white or black.

The [[Dundreary]] '''Stretch''' is a four-door "stretch" limousine which has appeared in the following games:
+
== Performance ==
  +
===3D universe===
  +
Being a large, multi-passenger vehicle with an extended drive axle due to its length, this vehicle has a very powerful V8 with a rear-wheel drivetrain. Exceptions are the III and Vice City variants which are front wheel drive, therefore, not requiring an extended drive axle and performing better. 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 III]] <small>(first appearance)</small>

In the GTA III era excluding San Andreas, despite being equipped with V8 engine, the Stretch's engine sound is similar to that of the four cylinder cars (e.g. [[Manana]]).

===Design===
+
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.
The Stretch's design varies in each game, being modelled after the most common American limousines of their respective depicted periods:

Despite being a limousine, it is a 4-door vehicle, meaning it is only capable of carrying 4 passengers. Trunk-mounted "boomerang" TV antennae are depicted in the GTA Vice City, GTA Advance, GTA Vice City Stories and GTA IV renditions of the Stretch, with the GTA IV rendition featuring two additional antennas. Detailing within the passenger compartment of the limousines vary between games but remained largely unremarkable until GTA IV, wherein the passenger compartment features LED lighting in the floor and ceiling, a mini-bar and two television screens. GTA IV's Stretch also features more durable windows (particularly side windows) than other cars in the game - they can withstand a significant amount of gunfire before shattering.[[File:Stretch_badges.png|thumb]]

The Stretch comes in somewhat limited color variations: in GTA III, GTA Liberty City Stories and GTA Vice City Stories, it is available in only dark grey, light grey and white, with a black variant available in two GTA III missions and one VCS mission; in GTA Vice City, it is only available in white, with the exception of a gold variant used by [[Candy Suxxx]] during "[[Martha's Mug Shot]]", and a black variant used by [[Avery Carrington]] during cutscenes 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 (mission)|Jizzy]]" that is black on the lower portion, although obtaining this Stretch is extremely difficult). In Vice City Stories, 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.

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 [[Jizzy's Pleasure Domes|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 [[Safehouses|safehouse]] [[Garages|garage]]. This is extremely easier to obtain the Stretch in the mission [[Jizzy (mission)|Jizzy]]. Also note that there are two [[Cheats in GTA San Andreas|cheats]] available to get the Stretch; the black traffic cheat, and the Stretch spawn cheat.

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.

— GTA Vice City Website

The Stretch is a stretch limousine which has appeared 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 Edit

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

3D UniverseEdit

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 like in Vice City. For some reason, the Stretch in GTA Advance has a truck horn.

In GTA III, GTA Liberty City Stories, it is available in only dark grey, light grey and white, with a black variant available in two GTA III missions and one VCS mission; in GTA Vice City, it is only available in white, with the exception of a gold variant used by Candy Suxxx during "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 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 $3000.

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

Grand Theft Auto IVEdit

In Grand Theft Auto IV it is 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) than 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" dinging noise 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 as the most luxurious and expensive 4-door sedan.

Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown WarsEdit

The Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars rendition is identical to its GTA IV appearance, albeit lower quality.

Grand Theft Auto VEdit

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

Current Design GalleryEdit

Version History GalleryEdit

Performance Edit

3D universeEdit

Being a large, multi-passenger vehicle with an extended drive axle due to its length, this vehicle has a very powerful V8 with a rear-wheel drivetrain. Exceptions are the III and Vice City variants which are front wheel drive, therefore, not requiring an extended drive axle and performing better. 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.

In the GTA III era excluding San Andreas, despite being equipped with V8 engine, the Stretch's engine sound is similar to that of the four cylinder cars (e.g. Manana).

Grand Theft Auto IVEdit

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.

GTA SA variants
Sanitary
  • In 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. After the mission is passed, the Stretch can be saved normally.
  • In 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.
  • 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 AndreasEdit

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. 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.

So the only two ways to obtain this are: 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.

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".

Locations Edit

The Stretch is only used in a few missions, and is usually found in the more affluent areas in each city.

Grand Theft Auto IIIEdit

Grand Theft Auto: Vice CityEdit

  • Parked on the opposite side of the stairs from the Infernus at Vercetti Estate in Vice City, usually instead of the Admiral though on rare occassions, the Admiral may also spawn alongside the stretch at the same time.
