The Albany Alpha is a sport coupe in GTA 5. The Albany Alpha resembles the Cadillac Elmiraj Concept car with a few cues from other models including the 2013 Cadillac ATS, Cadillac XLR-V, Cadillac Ciel and Cadillac Sixteen. The headlights are pointed in the opposite direction than modern Cadillac vehicles. The rear fascia, especially the taillights, are inspired by the M139 Maserati Quattroporte and entire rear fascia in general slightly resembles the 2013 Rolls-Royce Wraith. Unlike its real life counterpart, which is a hard top convertible, the Albany Alpha has a fixed hard roof. Unlike the Turismo R and Jester, both of which use a rear mid-engine layout, the Albany Alpha uses a front mid engine layout. In GTA 5, the Albany Alpha does not contain reverse lights. This also applies to the Grotti Turismo R, which also does not contain reverse lights.
The Albany Alpha features a 4.3L Twin-Turbo V8 pushing 500 horsepower to the rear wheels. Despite Legendary Motorsport saying it only can go 157 mph, the Albany Alpha actually goes much faster than this, as evidenced by the in game stat bars. It actually has a similar speed to cars like the Obey 9F and Benefactor Surano, which is about 200 mph. Braking is one of the best in its class, with it being complimented on by decent handling and traction for a car as big as it is.
In Grand Theft Auto 5, The Albany Alpha seems to be noticeably more durable against bullets and collision damage than most cars in its class and It shares its engine sound as the Obey 9F, Lampadati Felon and Schyster Fusilade. The Albany Alpha appears in the GTA 5 DLC pack The Business Update.
