Albany is an automotive company in the HD Universe. It is a luxury automaker, based on Cadillac. Albany, along with Vapid, is one of the largest manufacturers in the HD Universe. After its appearance in pre-release screenshots, Roman's Taxi was often mistakenly identified as the "Albany" due to the prominent badge on the front, however it is in fact an Esperanto, built by Albany.
Albany has two logos that are widely used, a silver "A" with a crown within, and a crowned rectangular emblem. The first one is used on older models (with the exception of the Cavalcade and Cavalcade FXT) and the second is used on much more modern models.
