The '''Yakuza Stinger''' is the [[Yakuza]] customized gang car. The car appears in the three [[Liberty City in GTA III Era|Liberty City]] based games: [[Grand Theft Auto III]], [[Grand Theft Auto Advance]] (as the '''Yakuza''') and [[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.

==Performance==
Performance of the Yakuza Stinger in GTA 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. In GTA Liberty City Stories, its performance is slightly upgraded with much better acceleration and top speed, making it one of the fastest cars in LCS along with [[Infernus]] and [[Cheetah]].
