Albany logo type 1
Albany logo type 2

Albany is an automotive company in Grand Theft Auto IV and Grand Theft Auto V. It is a luxury automaker, based on Cadillac. Albany, along with Vapid, is one of the largest manufacturers in the game. 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.

Trivia

  • The old logo is vaguely similar to the trademark of the real-life manufacturer Maserati, however it's probably a coincidence since the two companies have nothing else in common.
  • The name Albany is likely a nod to the capital city of Liberty's real life counterpart, New York.
