The Yakuza Stinger is the Yakuza customized gang car featured in Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto Advance (as the Yakuza) and Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories.


Grand Theft Auto III & Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories

The Yakuza Stinger is a variant of the Stinger, sporting a red and white paint job in Grand Theft Auto III and a red and baby blue paint job in Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories, as well as an additional spoiler. It also appears only in its hardtop form, as opposed to some Stingers, which are depicted as rag-top convertibles with or without a top up.

Prior to the release of GTA III, the car was also known as the "Yakuza"; this name remains in use on the official Rockstar North website.

Grand Theft Auto Advance

In Grand Theft Auto Advance, the Yakuza Stinger can appear with three paint jobs - a red and white one, a yellow and red one, and a blue and green one. It has also a different engine sound than in the other two Liberty City related games.

Grand Theft Auto III & Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories

In Grand Theft Auto III, the Yakuza Stinger retains the original's moderate top speed and excellent grip, has faster acceleration but also weaker handling. In corners that the regular Stinger can clear with ease, the Yakuza Stinger requires use of the handbrake to control the understeer. The Yakuza Stinger is also harder to drift as it will only slide for as long as the handbrake was held.

In Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories, the Yazkua Stinger is one of the fastest cars in the game along with the Infernus and Cheetah. Compared to other sports cars, the Yakuza Stinger is exceptionally durable and can take more damage before destroyed, being one of the most durable cars, along with the Cartel Cruiser and the Triad Fish Van.

In Grand Theft Auto Advance the player can receive Asuka Kasen's Yakuza (dubbed the "Asukamobile") in the mission Down The River. To get the car, the player needs to complete the mission with at least 19 Mafia thugs. The car has an unique metallic blue color, and it handles much better than the normal Yakuza. It is the second fastest vehicle in the game along with the FBI Car.
