"Dismissed as 'over the top' for the 90s pro wrestling circuit, the Albany Lurcher was a car ahead of its time. Since then American society has moved on, and this forgotten gem has been taken to heart as the centerpiece of choice for funeral orgies across the nation. Don't take chances when it comes to your legacy: accessorize your demise, and turn your death into a statement that nobody wants to hear."
Southern San Andreas Super Autos description.

The Albany Lurcher is a four-door hearse featured in Grand Theft Auto Online as part of the Halloween Surprise update.


Grand Theft Auto Online

The Lurcher is essentially a hearse built upon the chassis of a Buccaneer, featuring the front section, window, grille, fenders and headlights of a Buccaneer, with a hearse compartment similar to that of the 1967 Cadillac Funeral Coach at the rear. The car uniquely features a partially open coffin in the rear compartment, containing what appears to be a mannequin wearing a damaged black suit and a Pale Frank mask, and is looking out of the coffin with its right arm extended, pointing out of the vehicle's rear window to other drivers and general onlookers behind it. Its appearance looks similar to that of Boris Karloff's portrayal of Frankenstein's monster from the 1931 film Frankenstein.

The Lurcher is remarkably different than the Buccaneer stock model. Acceleration is sub-par for the class because of the large increase in mass, yet a higher top speed as a result of this. The Lurcher handles differently, thanks to the large addition to the rear of the car body, the car is very back-heavy and feels almost chuckable around corners. Keeping the car from spinning out is harder than most other Muscle cars, even before the Lowriders Update. Crash deformation is acceptable.

Grand Theft Auto Online

  • Can be bought from Southern San Andreas Super Autos for $650,000, but only during the annual Halloween event. However, players that have purchased it can buy another one at any time of the year thereafter.



  • This vehicle is based on a real custom hearse called the "Kargoyle", designed by George Barris. It can also be further modified to resemble its real life counter part.
  • The Lurcher's name is likely a reference to the character Lurch from the television sitcom (and film series) The Addams Family, in which Lurch was the family's imposing, deep-voiced butler.
    • The other vehicle added in the Halloween Surprise, the Fränken Stange, is a reference to The Munsters, another sitcom with a similar premise to The Addams Family that is often seen as a direct competitor.
  • The Lurcher's variable-tone, organ-like horn (which is unique to this vehicle) will play a tune resembling the theme song from The Addams Family, minus the finger snapping accompaniment, if used repeatedly in quick succession.
  • The Lurcher is one of four cars in GTA V with vertical headlights, the others being the Peyote, Glendale and the Buccaneer. The Lurcher and the Buccaneer are the only muscle cars with this feature.
  • The default radio stations of the Lurcher are Radio Mirror Park, Vinewood Boulevard Radio, and Los Santos Rock Radio.

Grand Theft Auto Online

  • The Lurcher doesn’t have reversing lights.
  • This vehicle isn’t listed in the Creator, and unless the player owns a Lurcher, this vehicle will not be listed in races.
  • The zombie hanging out of the coffin in the trunk has eyes that illuminate in dark areas. This can be more easily seen at night, when they are at their brightest. Its right hand can also shake with the car's movements.
  • The Lurcher and Fränken Stange were originally purchasable in Grand Theft Auto V but that decision was changed before release and the vehicles ended up being Online exclusive.[1]
  • On 16 November 2015, the final day of the Halloween Surprise update's content being available, the Lurcher's price was increased to $666,666. This is a reference to 666, the number associated with Satan in the Bible's new testament.[citation/verification needed]
