The Mafia Sentinel is a gang version of the Sentinel used by the Leone Family in Grand Theft Auto III and Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories. In GTA Liberty City Stories, the vehicle is named the Leone Sentinel.

Overview

Design

The Mafia Sentinel is evidently a four-door sedan based on the games' renditions of the Sentinel, resembling a real-life mid-1990s BMW 5-series, possibly a BMW M5, which is a high performance version of the 5-series; the Mafia Sentinel is also related to the sporty Sentinel XS variants in later games. It is essentially a tuned version of the Sentinel, with a bodykit, tinted windows, and blinds over the rear window. Its paintjob is always dark gray in GTA III and black in GTA Liberty City Stories, and cannot be resprayed into any other color in a Pay 'n' Spray. In the strategy guide for GTA Liberty City Stories, pictures of a white Leone Sentinel can be seen. Like any gang car, attempts to steal one with a Leone Family member inside will result in surrounding peers attacking the player.

Performance

The Mafia Sentinel's handling is slightly sharpened, whilst average speed is noticeably quicker over its stock counterpart. Its performance coupled with its four occupant capacity makes this an ideal car for bank jobs, attacks on rival gangs, and street racing.
