[[Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars|GTA Chinatown Wars]] | based_on = See [[#Design]] }} The '''Banshee''' is a two-seater sports car. The car has appeared in the following [[Grand Theft Auto series|games]]: *[[Grand Theft Auto III]] *[[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City]] *[[Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas]] *[[Grand Theft Auto Advance]] *[[Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories]] *[[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories]] *[[Grand Theft Auto IV]] *[[Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars]] == Design == === GTA III — GTA Vice City Stories === In [[Grand Theft Auto III]], [[Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories]], and [[Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas]] it resembles a 1992-1995 [[wp:Dodge_Viper#First_generation_SR_.281992.E2.80.931995.29|Dodge Viper RT/10]], with its curvilinear design and dual single-exhaust ports, although the Banshee is narrower in width and has a different headlight design. This version of the Banshee is the only top-down convertible that the player cannot jump into without opening the driver door. In GTA San Andreas, it can only be modified in [[TransFender]]. In [[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City]], and [[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories]], the Banshee resembles a 1984-1996 [[wp:Chevrolet Corvette C4|Corvette C4]], with a more angular design and dual double-exhaust ports. The GTA Advance rendition, which mimics the design of GTA III's Banshee, is also comparable to [[Grand Theft Auto 2|GTA 2]]'s [[Rumbler]], but is generally sleeker, sports the same single stripe as other Banshees, and comes with a covered top. {| align="center" | Image:Banshee-GTA3-front.jpg|[[Grand Theft Auto III]] ([[:Image:Banshee-GTA3-rear.jpg|Rear quarter view]]).

Image:Banshee-GTAVCS-front.jpg|[[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories]] ([[:Image:Banshee-GTAVCS-rear.jpg|Rear quarter view]]). |} === GTA IV — GTA Chinatown Wars === In [[Grand Theft Auto IV]], the [[Bravado]] Banshee resembles a [[wp:Dodge Viper#Second generation SR (1996–2002)|1996-2002 Dodge Viper Coupe]], but has side exhausts and a shorter roofline resembling a [[wp:Dodge Viper#Third generation ZB (2003-2006)|third]] or [[wp:Dodge Viper#Fourth generation ZB (2008–2010)|fourth generation Dodge Viper]]. The front end has a unique design compared to the Viper and the taillights resemble those of the [[wp:Aston Martin DB9|Aston Martin DB9]]. Unlike the real-life Viper's V10 engine, the GTA IV Banshee has a 300ci (4.91 Liter) twin-turbocharged V8, according to the [[Autoeroticar.com|AutoEroticar]] website, and can be seen in-game if the player inflicts enough damage to cause the hood to come off. Banshees in GTA IV are present as convertibles with rollbars, as well as hardtops. Similar to its real-life counterpart, the Banshee bears its own logo, resembling a screaming mouth with fangs (Much like the real logo of the Dodge Viper), on the side panels, steering wheel, and upholstery. The standard Bravado logo is used on the front and rear of the car. The Banshee can be seen with an allover paintjob, or with a racing stripe down the middle; the stripe is usually colored yellow, gray or bright orange. For whatever reason, the Banshee is not recognized as a sports car by the game, as friends and dates that normally like or dislike sports cars in particular (as opposed to e.g. all expensive cars) will not have the same reaction to a Banshee. This doesn't appear to have any other effect on gameplay. In the DS version of [[Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars]], the Banshee appears similar to either the [[Phoenix]] or its GTA Vice City rendition, while in the PSP version it resembles its GTA IV rendition more. It is the car driven by the [[Triads]] in their territory. {| align="center" | Image:Banshee-GTA4-front.jpg|[[Grand Theft Auto IV]]; with a hardtop roof ([[:Image:Banshee-GTA4-rear.jpg|Rear quarter view without roof]], [[:Image:Banshee-GTA4-badge.jpg|unique badge]], [[:Image:Banshee-GTA4-interior.jpg|interior]], [[:Image:Banshee-GTA4-engine.png|engine]]). Image:Banshee-GTACW.png|[[Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars]] (DS version). |} == Performance == === GTA III — GTA Vice City Stories === Being a front-engine, rear-wheel drive, with a 10-cylinder engine, the Banshee between GTA III and GTA Vice City Stories is one of the speediest sports cars but suffers from poor cornering due to its rear wheel drive, making it prone to fishtailing and spinouts in sharp turns (including handbrake turns). Examination of game data for GTA III to GTA San Andreas reveal the vehicle's performance stats remain unchanged, with a top speed of 125 mph (200 km/h), a weight of 2,240lbs (1,400 kg), a 5-speed transmission, an acceleration of 10.7 ft/s (3.3 m/s), and all-wheel brakes; these stat could be shared with the Banshee in GTA Liberty City Stories and GTA Vice City Stories. The Banshee's speed in GTA Advance is significantly high, nearly matching that of the [[Police Car|police car]], but has a marginally low [[crusher]] value of $448. These traits remained unchanged until GTA IV, when its performance received significant tweaks. === GTA IV — GTA Chinatown Wars === The Banshee in GTA IV is powered by a 300ci Twin-Turbo V8, coupled to a 5 speed gearbox in a RWD configuration. The Banshee is the third fastest-accelerating sports car. It's the sixth-fastest car of all. Handling is superb, with a slight hint of oversteer that complements the very torque-y engine. The suspension is firm, which often causes the Banshee to hop about on uneven streets at higher speeds. Braking is very good; the Banshee outbrakes every other vehicle in the game, and ABS is standard on all models. Crash deformation is acceptable, however, due to its front-mounted engine it is much less resistant to frontal damage than rear and mid-engined sports cars such as the [[Comet]] and [[Infernus]]. Overall, the Banshee is one of the more fun vehicles to drive, and well suited towards high-speed applications such as online multiplayer racing. == Variant == [[Image:Banshee-GTA4-Stevie-front.jpg|thumb|275px|right|The Banshee requested in [[Stevie's Car Thefts]] in GTA IV.]] In GTA IV, a Banshee is requested as part of [[Stevie's Car Thefts]], with a uniquely bright orange body with a yellow stripe. As a new Banshee will respawn at the same spot until the player delivers one to [[S&M Auto Sales]], the player can save one at their safehouse before delivering another. == Modifications (GTA San Andreas) == *Colors (two exterior areas) *Nitro (all) *Wheels (ten varieties) *Hydraulics ==Trivia== * The Banshee plays the following radio stations by default when entered: ** [[Radio X]] in GTA San Andreas. ** [[The Vibe 98.8]] in GTA IV. * The Banshee in GTA San Andreas is one of a handful of vehicles where [[Carl Johnson]] kicks the driver instead of punching or slamming the head of the driver. * [[Roman Bellic]] has a poster of a blue Banshee on the wall of his [[Hove Beach]] apartment. * There is a glitch that only happens for the Banshees with the hardtops. When Niko walks over to steal one, he gets in the stance to jump in the car (Just as he does with the convertible variant), but then he cancels the stance and opens up the door and gets in. The glitch can be clearly seen when stealing a hardtop Banshee with the close camera option.[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rrtSZTx2SFo] == Notable owners == * [[Lenny Petrovic]] * [[Salvatore Leone]] * [[Vincenzo Cilli]] * [[Leon McAffrey]] == Locations == '''GTA III''' *[[Capital Autos]] in [[Harwood]], [[Portland Island]] *Outside [[Asuka Kasen|Asuka Kasen's]] [[Asuka Kasen's Condo|apartment]] in [[Newport]], [[Staunton Island]] *[[Kenji's Casino]], [[Torrington]], Staunton Island *Parking lot west of [[Wichita Gardens]], [[Shoreside Vale]] '''GTA Vice City''' *Next to a mansion with a [[Rockstar Games|Rockstar]] swimming pool in [[Starfish Island]]. *Under a blue building north of the [[Pay 'n' Spray]] in [[Washington Beach]].
