A Willard Marbelle in GTA IV (Rear quarter view).

The Willard Marbelle is a vehicle available in Grand Theft Auto IV. It is a four-door, rear wheel drive sedan found throughout Liberty City, but most commonly in Broker It is driven by various characters in cutscenes, most notably by Vlad Glebov, who possesses a Marbelle in a blue shade.

Overview

The Marbelle's performance is average in all aspects. It's performance is comparable to the Emperor, though its marginally smaller size results in slightly superior handling and a little less body roll. The Marbelle has slightly higher ground clearance than most sedans, so its no problem to drive over curbs.

The Marbelle's styling is blend of '70's/'80's [North American] Ford Granadas and Lincolns. The car's headlights somewhat resemble a 1977–1979 Lincoln Versailles, but the taillights are much closer to a 1981-1984 Lincoln Town Car. The sides, front bumper, windows,and roof pillars from the 1975-1980 Ford Granadas (these are also very similar to the 1977/1978 Lincoln Versailles); there are also vents surrounding the headlights much like the ones from the 1975-1977 Granadas. The name may come from the Granada since they are both places in Spain (Marbelle is not quite Marbella though).

After collecting all thirty cars for Stevie he agrees to purchase cars from Niko Bellic, with the Marbelle fetching $1,500.
