The Stallion is a recurring two-door coupe and convertible that has appeared in the following games:

Description

The Stallion was first featured in GTA 1, in which it appears as a hardtop design and is one of the faster cars on the road; however, it didn't appear again in the series until GTA III. In true muscle car fashion, it has V8 power channeled to the rear wheels.

In GTA III and GTA Liberty City Stories, a variant of the Stallion is featured in the game. Called Diablo Stallion, it is the primary gang car used by the Diablos. In GTA San Andreas, it is also used as a gang car, but this time used by the San Fierro Rifa.

Design

In GTA I, it resembles a 1969 Pontiac GTO.

In the GTA III era, it appears to be based loosely on a 1964-68 Ford Mustang, but the grille loosely resembles a 1969/1970 Cutlass (also the Oldsmobile 442) (creating a look similar to an Oldsmobile Omega), and the back bumper looks loosely based on those of '70-'72 Cutlasses (but this is less obvious in the GTA SA rendition).

In GTA IV, it's manufactured by Classique and resembles a much bigger muscle car rather than a pony car. The grille and lights remain almost unchanged but the chassis is more like 1968-69 Oldsmobile Cutlasses but the sides bear the aggressive, heavily creased, lines of 1970-1972 Oldsmobile Cutlasses; the rear end looks like that of a 1971 or '72 Cutlass (it says "STALLION" above the bumper much like it says "OLDSMOBILE") with extra lights. The headlights are surrounded by headlight bezels similar to the ones on a '68 Cutlass. Its engine is a 347ci (5.6 litre) V8. It is similar in appearance to the Clover from GTA San Andreas.

Performance

Its handling varies in each game. In Grand Theft Auto III, the Stallion has reasonable acceleration, though its rear wheel drive layout and huge amount of low-down torque meant it was easy to perform doughnuts and wheel-spin when taking off. The GTA Vice City version is altogether slower than the GTA III rendition; however, its tail-happy traits remained. In GTA San Andreas, it handles much like the Clover and Sabre but fishtailing rarely occurs. The vehicle also appears in GTA Liberty City Stories and GTA Vice City Stories, where they have similar attributes to the GTA III and GTA Vice City renditions, respectively.

In GTA IV the Stallion is easier to steer, but it will occasionally spin out of control, especially in poor weather conditions such as rain; however, it can reach higher speeds than the Stallions in previous GTA games, and it is classified as a muscle car. With good power, handling, and acceleration it is easily one of the top three muscle cars in Grand Theft Auto IV. Care should be taken through corners though; despite having good grip, the Stallion is awful at keeping flat through corners. The Stallion can also be quite bumpy on the road.

The GTA Chinatown Wars rendition adopts a combination of performance traits of previous renditions, with high top speed and acceleration and good steering, but very poor grip as a result of excess torque, resulting in the car skidding frequently, even in slight turns.

In GTA 1, the Stallion's base export value tops up at $600 if the car is delivered in mint condition. In GTA IV, the car may be sold at S&M Auto Sales for a maximum of $2,200 (in perfect condition) after completion of Stevie's Car Thefts.

Trivia

  • The Stallion name, when first adopted in GTA 1, appears to be a play of the Ford Mustang name. Both names refer to equestrian terms for horses that are not fully domesticated. A "mustang" is "a free-roaming feral horse of the North American west that first descended from horses brought to the Americas by the Spanish", while a "Stallion" is simply "a male horse that has not been neutered, castrated, or gelded".
  • A version of the Ford Mustang called the Stallion Special was sold exclusively by Mainway Ford in 1967.
  • The Stallion is one of the earliest fictional cars to be featured on a box art of a Grand Theft Auto game, appearing in several versions of GTA III cover arts.
  • The Stallion has made non-GTA cameos in multiple games produced by Rockstar North as well as other Rockstar Games studios:
    • The Stallion made a cameo appearance in Rockstar North's Manhunt in the mission "The Director's", in which it appears as a burnt out wreck.
    • The Stallion makes cameo appearances in Rockstar Toronto's The Warriors as the cars on the streets that the player can steal radios from.
    • A black Stallion with a flame paintjob (similar to a Diablo Stallion) appears in Rockstar Vancouver's Bully in the Shop Class.
  • The interior of the GTA IV Stallion features a photograph taped to the dashboard, its purpose being largely unknown due to the poor quality of the photograph texture. The same interior is reused in the Rhapsody, but the photograph is substituted with one depicting what seems to be Wayne and Garth from Wayne's World.

Stallion was an Imperial CR90 corvette during the Galactic Civil War. As the Battle on the Frontier drew to a close, Corvette Stallion escorted Nebulon-B frigate Gaarni to replace the battle weary Nebulon-B2 frigate Ludwick. The Stallion's task force arrived to relieve Grand Admiral Thrawn's initial invasion force sent to establish Space Station NL-1 in the Pakuuni system.
