The Stirling GT is a landmark in Germany's proud history of helping flabby, self-loathing businessmen pretend they're Grand Prix drivers... for two minutes between freeway traffic jams. It's a tradition that's been around for at least sixty years, so while it's still pathetic, at least it got there first.
Official legendarymotorsport.net description, GTA V.
According to Legendarymotorsport.net, the Stirling GT's engine is a 3 liter V8 that pumps out 310 hp, mated to a front-engine layout with a rear-wheel-drive system. The Stirling GT can accelerate from a stationary position to 60 mph (97 km/h) in 5.1 seconds, somewhat fast for a classic sports car. The Stirling GT can reach a top speed of 175 mph (282 km/h) with modifications and Franklin Clinton's special ability, but is unfortunately limited to a low top speed of approximately 108 mph (174 km/h) otherwise. The Stirling GT, being rear-wheel-drive, may be suspectible to spinouts, so one must remember to take care at higher speeds when turning. Being lightweight, it has superb cornering abilities.
- Found in the protagonist's garages in Story Mode.
- Can be purchased from Legendarymotorsport.net for $975,000 (GTA Online).
- The Stirling GT's name is an obvious reference to Stirling Moss, a British former Formula One racing driver. An inductee into the International Motorsports Hall of Fame, he achieved success in several categories of competition and has been described as "the greatest driver never to win the World Championship".
- The Stirling GT and Pegassi Osiris are the first cars in the entire Grand Theft Auto series to use gullwing doors.
- Unlike the latter, the Stirling GT has a unique, new door-opening animation.
