The Buffalo is a vehicle featured in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas and Grand Theft Auto IV.

GTA San Andreas

The Buffalo in GTA San Andreas appears to based on the third-generation Chevrolet Camaro Z28 and the Ford Mustang of the time. The car is front-engine, rear-drive, and sports a V8 engine that delivers great acceleration and speed, but comes at the cost of limited control at top speeds. It is also a two-door vehicle, making it unsuitable for drive-bys as you can only have one recruit to go along with you.

Even though it is clearly based on a 1982-1992 Camaro, it has been changed quite a bit. The headlights are circular, coincidentally similar to a 1994-2001 Acura Integra,or a Escort Coswoth Bodykit; a C-pillar has been added, bearing somewhat of a resemblance to 1984–1993 Dodge Daytonas; and the shape taillights look closer to some third-generation Pontiac Firebird models. The Buffalo also has a ram air hood.

GTA IV

In GTA IV it resembles a 2006-present Dodge Charger and a Chevrolet Camaro but is only seen as the FIB Buffalo law enforcement vehicle. Though there is no existing civilian version, it is advertised on various billboards scattered around the city. Bravado is the manufacturer of the Buffalo, as seen on the billboards and the FIB Buffalo itself.

There is also the Imponte Ruiner, a very similar car that fills the '80's muscle car place of the previous Buffalo.
