The '''Buccaneer''' is a 2-door coupé in [[Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas]], [[Grand Theft Auto IV]] (where it is misspelled "'''Bucanneer'''") and [[Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars]].
== Description ==
=== GTA San Andreas ===
The Buccaneer is based on a [[wp:Chevrolet Monte Carlo#First generation|1970-1972 Chevrolet Monte Carlo]] (probably the 1972 model, as it doesn't have turning signals on the bumper). Its design resembles that of the [[Picador]], as both cars take inspiration from vehicles built upon the [[wp:Chevrolet Chevelle|Chevelle]] platform. The Picador slightly outperforms the Buccaneer in acceleration and handling, but the Buccaneer has a higher top speed. Despite its lowrider-like appearance, it can only be modified at [[TransFenders|TransFender]].
The Buccaneer, along with the [[Tampa]] and the [[Manana]], is a gang car of the [[Da Nang Boys]]. It can only be found in the [[Easter Basin]] and [[Garver Bridge]] region in [[San Fierro]], along with the [[Tampa]].
=== GTA IV — GTA Chinatown Wars ===
The [[Albany]] "Bucanneer" in GTA IV still broadly draws inspiration from the 1970-1972 Monte Carlo (but it has lost much of its fastback profile and has exaggerated proportions), but is also influenced by other vehicles — the front end looks closer to that of the [[wp:Chevrolet Caprice#1971-76|1974 Chevrolet Caprice]] and even more so 1974 Cadillacs because of the hood ornament. The Bucanneer is a fairly heavy car, needing a V8 to lug around its portly weight, however its cornering is acceptable at low speeds. Its top speed is about 145 km/h (90 mph). The name "Bucanneer", seen when the player enters the vehicle, is clearly a typographical error — the name is spelled correctly on the rear of the car, in [[Stevie]]'s text message requesting the car, and within game files.
The GTA Chinatown Wars rendition retains the Monte Carlo influences, leaning more towards the design of the GTA San Andreas rendition, although it is far shorter than both its previous renditions. Its wide headlights echo the double headlights of the GTA IV rendition.
