The Stallion, as depicted in Grand Theft Auto III.

The Stallion is a two-door convertible muscle car featured in the majority of the games in the series so far, including Grand Theft Auto 1, Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories and Grand Theft Auto IV.

Overview

The Stallion was first featured in GTA 1, in which it appears as a hardtop design and is one of the faster cars on the road; however, it didn't appear again in the series until GTA III. In true muscle car fashion, it has V8 power channeled to the rear wheels. It's handling varies somewhat in each game. In Grand Theft Auto III, the Stallion has reasonable acceleration, though its rear wheel drive layout and huge amount of low-down torque meant it was easy to perform doughnuts and wheel-spin when taking off. The Grand Theft Auto: Vice City version is altogether slower than the GTA III rendition; however, its tail-happy traits remained. In Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, it handles much like the Clover and Sabre but fishtailing rarely occurs. The vehicle also appears in Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, where they have similar attributes to the GTA III and GTA Vice City renditions, respectively.

In GTA IV the Stallion is easier to steer, but it will occasionally spin out of control, especially in poor weather conditions such as rain; however, it can reach higher speeds than the Stallions in previous GTA games, and it is classified as the muscle car.

In the GTA III era, it appears to be based on a 1964-68 Ford Mustang, but the grille hints at a 1970 Oldsmobile 442 or Cutlass. In GTA IV, the grille and lights remain almost unchanged but the chassis is more like 1968-69 Oldsmobiles; the rear end looks like that of a 1971 or '72 Cutlass with extra lights. Its engine is a 347ci (5.6 litre) V8. In GTA IV the manufactured by Classique.
