The Albany Fränken Stange is a 4-door hot-rod featured in GTA Online, added as part of the Halloween Surprise Update. The Fränken Stange is likely inspired by the Munster Koach from the television sitcom The Munsters which itself is modeled after the 1920’s Ford Model T, both being hot-rodded classic saloon cars with a large, exposed engine and a passenger cabin that is enclosed at the front but open at the rear.
The Fränken Stange can also be considered a landaulet variant of the Albany Roosevelt, it shares most of the bodywork, particularly the front fascia, headlights, grille and wheel-arches with it. Because it shares its bodywork and chassis with the Albany Roosevelt, it can be said that is based on the 1928 Cadillac 341A Town Sedan, where it shares the initial design shape, headlight arrangement and wheel arches.
Albany Fränken Stange Performance
The Albany Fränken Stange handles like a boat, being 2 tons heavy. Turning is slightly sluggish which is expected of a hotrod. It tends to understeer at first which can quickly switch to a sudden oversteer but it’s somewhat easily controllable. The acceleration is good as well as its top speed, surpassing the Albany Roosevelt’s velocity, thanks to the car’s massive V8 engine, which shakes a little when the car is on, being the only car in GTA 5 to do so.
The Albany Fränken Stange is powered by a hefty big-block single-overhead camshaft V8, in an FMR (Front-mid engine, rear wheel drive) layout, laid longitudinally. The engine features large zoomie exhausts running from the engine block, backwards, facing the driver, and sticking out further than the initial bodywork. The Fränken Stange also features 8 large velocity stack carburetors.
