"Looking for something wild? Climb inside the fierce V-STR and listen to it growl as it bares that distinctive grill and charges the competition. With this much untamed energy, get ready to lose control. Figuratively, obviously. This high-performance luxury sedan is the jewel in Albany's crown."
Legendary Motorsport description.

The Albany V-STR is a four-door executive car featured in Grand Theft Auto Online as part of the continuation of the The Diamond Casino Heist update, released on January 30, 2020, during the V-STR Week event.

Design

Grand Theft Auto Online

The V-STR is a mid-size 4-door luxury sedan with its overall appearance mainly being derived from a 2019 Cadillac CTS-V. The V-STR also shares a very similar name, along with an almost identical 'V' badge. The front end of the car is heavily Mercedes-influenced, taking most features (upper grille portion, headlights) from the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class (C117), along with other cues from the E-Class AMG (W213) (lower grille portion, front vents).

The V-STR is a rather large sedan distinguished by its front end, which is largely predominated by the twin grille bearing chrome trimming around it, as well as a circular part with the Albany logo on it. The lower side features a large intake below the main grille and two smaller ones on the outer sides, having plastic surroundings and DRLs. Right at the bottom there is a small plastic lip. The car uses LED-like lights located in black housings.

The sides feature twin fender vents with a chrome detail right after the front wheels, creating a slightly concaved portion around the doors. It also has visible side skirts and the cabin features black window trimmings. The rear-view mirrors have plastic frames and partially-colored shells.

The rear end features a rather bulky bumper housing the twin exhaust tubes, rear vents and another plastic trim at the bottom. Around the trunk area, there is the plate holder with a chrome detail above the license plate. A set of tail lights can be seen on either side, with the main ones located in black housings. The trunk also has a plastic ducktail spoiler by default.

The V-STR is prominently painted in a primary color, while the rear-view mirrors are painted in secondary. A trim color is available for the interior stitching and backseats. Its interior is the same "Nero White" interior also used in the Neon.

Performance

Grand Theft Auto Online

Despite looking heavy, the V-STR handles remarkably well for a luxury sports car, and doesn't seem to have issues with oversteer, especially on hard corners. This makes it a pretty ideal car for races, and due to its sturdy build, it has a good amount of durability in withstanding collisions and gunfire.

The V-STR is powered by a V8 engine, as suggested by the cover, and its sound is similar to the one used in the Revolter, as well as the Windsor and its convertible variant.
