"Don't mistake this for a standard Stinger. The GT is a hard-top, race-bred variant that boasts a top speed of 175mph and 0-60 in less than 6 seconds. With only 40 produced, the Stinger GT is one of the most collectible sportscars in the world. So savor those fleeting moments of enjoyment in between being terrified of crashing it or somebody stealing it."
Legendary Motorsport description.

The Grotti Stinger GT is a two-door coupe featured only in Grand Theft Auto Online. As the name suggests, it is the grand tourer variant of the standard Stinger also seen in the game.


Grand Theft Auto Online

The Stinger GT is takes the grand touring coupe styling from the Ferrari 250 GTO and its 330 GTO variant as seen by its overall design, sides, greenhouse area and the short swept-back rear fascia including the duck-tail spoiler. Contrary to the Ferrari 250 GTO, the Stinger GT is rear engined, whereas the 250 GTO is front-mid engined. There may be some influence from the Shelby Daytona while its front end is quite reminiscent of the Intermeccanica Italia and Alfa Romeo 33 Stradale. There is a resemblance to the Ferrari Dino, mainly the Dino 206 for the headlights, grill/mouth, and the mid-engine placement. It draws some minor inspiration from the Alfa Romeo Giulia TZ2.

The rear, glass-enclosed, down-draft carburetered V8 may be inspired from the Ford GT40. The double barrel downdraft carburetors found on the engine block appear to be based on the Weber carburetor series, particularly the double-barrel downdrafts found on the Ferrari 250 GTO (to which the Stinger GT is based heavily on). The car also features beveled twin-exhaust tips.

In terms of game design, it is a hardtop rear-engined variant of the Stinger, with some changes found around the front bumper, side profiling and rear portion. It sports a front splitter not found on the regular Stinger.

Grand Theft Auto Online

The Stinger GT, being a grand tourer, is a good performing car for its class. The in-game engine model shows a single overhead camshaft V8 engine, with 4 double barreled-downdraft carburetors. Unlike the standard Stinger, the Stinger GT has its engine mounted in a rear-mid longitudinal position, whereas the Stinger has the engine placed in front-mid position.

The car also features two side-rear mounted radiators, which strangely share the same model as the intercoolers featured on the Cheetah, Turismo R, Osiris and T20, however, intercoolers are typically only used on turbocharged vehicles, which the Stinger GT is not, leaving the only possibility of them being rear-placed engine radiators.

Despite Legendary Motorsport stating the Stinger GT has better performance than the standard Stinger, in-game testing has shown that there is no significant difference between the two, which leaves the player at the option of the player's preferable body style of convertible or coupe within the Stinger range.

Its apparent 320HP 3 liter engine pushes it to a stated top speed of 175 mph (according to Legendary Motorsport), with a stated acceleration time of 5.7 seconds. In-game testing proves a similar performance, with an acceleration time of around 6.1 seconds and a top speed of 135 mph (both according to the first person speedometer). Traction is impressive, thanks to the rear-engine, rear wheel drive layout, which sends power directly to the wheels the engine is located upon. Recapping, the Stinger GT has a good top speed, and impressive acceleration. Handling is responsive and reliable, however, braking distance is bad.

  • The default radio stations of the Stinger GT are FlyLo FM and Soulwax FM.
  • Like the Stinger, the Stinger GT seems to share the same engine sound as the Seashark.
  • The Ferrari 250 GTO, the car the Stinger GT is based on, had only 39 models built, one off from the number of Stinger GT's produced. 
  • The front hood cannot be opened, unlike the original Stinger.
  • Apart from DLC vehicles from the Heists Update and later vehicles exclusive to the enhanced version, the Stinger GT is the only non-DLC land vehicle that is exclusive to GTA Online, and is also one of the two non-DLC vehicles exclusive to the online mode, along with the Annihilator.
  • The Stinger GT cannot be used in races Online, as it is considered a Stinger, which is readily available. The only way to use it in a race is to purchase the vehicle. (Confirmed on PS3)
    • This does not occur in the enhanced version.
  • Despite only appearing in GTA Online, police scanner audio files still contain the Stinger GT, even though the police scanner is absent from GTA Online.[1]


  • There was a glitch where a crew emblem could be purchased for use on this vehicle, but did not appear. The camera angle would pan to the left side door when selected, suggesting it should of appeared there. This was later patched.

The "Stinger V8" badging seen floating after the rear hood is opened via the interaction menu (top right).

  • In the enhanced version, when the rear hood is opened or broken off, the "Stinger V8" badging remains floating. This is due to the "Stinger V8" badging being mapped onto the vehicle chassis itself, rather than the hood, while the "Grotti" word mark is mapped onto the hood. This is only present on the high-poly model, explaining why only the enhanced version suffers from this bug. If the player moves far away from the model and zooms in closely, they badge will disappear.
