The Banshee as depicted in Grand Theft Auto III.

The Banshee is a two-seater sports car introduced in Grand Theft Auto III.

Overview

The Banshee is front-engine, rear-drive and boasts the deep rumble of at least 8 cylinders. In Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories, and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas it resembles a first-generation '90s Viper RT/10 (more curvilinear design; dual single-exhaust ports), whereas in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories it looks to be a 1980's Corvette C4 (more angular design; dual double-exhaust ports). The '90s Viper RT/10 version is the only top-down convertible that the player cannot jump into without opening the driver door.

In Grand Theft Auto IV, the Banshee resembles a Dodge Viper Coupe. The GTA4 version of the Banshee is manufactured by Bravado.

The Banshee's acceleration, speed, and braking are among the best in it's class, but this often comes at the expense of handling, especially at high speeds.
