The Yakuza Stinger is the Yakuza customized gang car featured in Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto Advance (as the Yakuza) and Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories.

Design

Grand Theft Auto III & Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories

The Yakuza Stinger is a variant of the Stinger, sporting a red and white paintjob in Grand Theft Auto III and a red and baby blue paintjob in Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories, as well as an additional spoiler. It also appears only in its hardtop form, as opposed to some Stingers, which are depicted as rag-top convertibles with or without a top up. It possibly resembles a Porsche Boxster S due to raised performance.

Prior to the release of GTA III, the car was also known as the "Yakuza"; this name remains in use on the official Rockstar North website.

Grand Theft Auto Advance

In Grand Theft Auto Advance, the Yakuza Stinger can appear with three paintjobs - a red and white one, a yellow and red one, and a blue and green one. It has also a different engine sound than in the other two Liberty City related games.

Performance

Performance of the Yakuza Stinger in Grand Theft Auto III is equivalent to the Stinger's, if not better. Its speed is considerably moderate by sports car standards, coupled with stable handling and good grip. The Yakuza Stinger is also all-wheel-drive, in comparison to a conventional Stinger, which is rear-wheel-drive. The Yakuza Stinger is thus less prone to tailspins than the Stinger, which is ideal for street racing, combined with its relatively low mass of 1400 kg.

In Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories, its performs even better, with higher acceleration and top speed, making it one of the fastest cars in LCS along with Infernus and Cheetah. Compared to other sports cars, the Yakuza Stinger is exceptionally durable and can take more damage before destroyed, being one of the most durable cars, along with the Cartel Cruiser and the Triad Fish Van.

Variants

Asukamobile

In Grand Theft Auto Advance the player can receive Asuka Kasen's Yakuza (dubbed the "Asukamobile") in the mission Down The River. To get the car, the player needs to complete the mission with at least 19 Mafia thugs. The car has an unique metallic blue color, and it handles much better than the normal Yakuza. It is the second fastest vehicle in the game along with the FBI Car. However, if the player gets the car to Pay 'n' Spray, it will lose it's unique color. It also should be noted that it is impossible to store the vehicle until the end of the game, since the player cannot use garages to store vehicles.

Locations

Grand Theft Auto III

  • In Asuka Kasen's condo parking lot in Newport, Staunton Island. There will be 2 of them; one near the entrance to the porch, another near the main entrance of the building.
  • Car park of the AMCo. building in Torrington, Staunton Island
  • Kenji's Casino in Torrington, Staunton Island (sometimes locked)
  • Staunton Plaza in Fort Staunton, Staunton Island (after Grand Theft Aero). There will be 3 Yakuza Stingers, 2 in front of the 2nd building that houses a health and armor pickup, and another near the lift.
  • The vehicle also spawns anywhere in Torrington, be careful by jacking the cars because, like other gang members, if another Yakuza Stinger is nearby, the gang members will pursue you and crash in your car, and Yakuza members will/may shoot at you.

  • It sports a color scheme similar to a car featured in Midnight Club: Street Racing known as the 'Kuruma Faasuto GTS'.

In-game

  • Despite Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories is set in 1998 and Grand Theft Auto III in 2001, in GTA III the car is only turbocharged, yet in GTA Liberty City Stories it is supercharged.
  • In Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories, the Yakuza Stinger has the same door-opening and door-shutting sound as the vintage cars like the Perennial, Manana & the Idaho, despite being a sports car.
