DESCRIPTION:

Paint the town red in the classically-inspired Albany Roosevelt. This armored 1920s limousine is perfect for gangsters and their molls. To properly run amok with the new Roosevelt, get in the driver’s seat and let your friends or Crewmates hang off the side, firing and taking out your rivals as you pass them by. The Roosevelt can be accessed from any garage property in Story Mode and is available in GTA Online from the legendarymotorsport.net in-game website.

 

 

HISTORY:

 A very exciting short story about this cars history by SlasherLasher: (It's in the spoiler)

 

Spoiler

 

 

 

VEHICLE DETAILS:

- Full Name: Albany Roosevelt

- Real Life Counterpart: 1928 Cadillac 341A Town Sedan

- Class: Sports Classic

- Passengers: 4 inside, 2 hanging outside (6)

- Obtained: Legendary Motorsport

- Price: 750.000$

- Available for purchase between February 14th and February 28th

- Unique horn

- Only general customization options. 

- Worth using in races

 

STATS:

13923148269465_f.jpg

 

Stat comparison to a Stinger GT:

Spoiler

Roosevelt has a higher acceleration. Stinger GT has a higher speed. Traction/Braking is the same. 

The Roosevelt IS race-worthy!

 

IMPORTANT MENTION:

Apparently, the vehicle will not be obtainable when the Valentines Event ends so for those who are interested in keeping it, buy it before the event ends! You will keep the vehicle after the event.

 

Also, be sure to not store it in the 1st garage slot as there is a glitch out there at the moment which wipes out any cars insurance that's placed there.

I wonder if it will be a garage car or a Pegasus car.

Anyway, What real car is it based off?

Didn't a user actually call this? I swear someone made a thread saying how nice it would be to have classic cars and old fashioned clothing from one of the past era's. Can't remember if it was 30's, 50's or 60's though but I know someone said something like that.

 

If I knew who you were, I'd high five you for this accurate guess. Well done.

 

Anyway, this addition and the fact that we get to keep it actually made me happy. I like the look of the suits and I was thinking last night oddly 'It'd be nice to have a tommy gun in this game' and voila, they are adding one in.

 

gg R*, gg.

 

Oh also, I noticed that another user had said 'It'd be nice to be able to wear suits and actually see the cuffs' well lol, from the pictures that I saw it does actually seem that you can see the sleeve cuffs of the shirt with the jacket on. Nice.

Legendary Motorsport ? Nothing on that site is below 100k, with a limited time aswell. I hope the price isn't to steap, I'd rather a price than FREE though, the car will mean more to me if I actually had to play missions to earn money to purchase it.

Mainly because that's what it is. It's not exactly a Super...

 

Look at the Z-Type, Stinger, Manana, Peyote, JB 700.... Notice something similar? There's your answer.

 

 

 

I could be wrong and they could add it as a sedan. There are some ridiculous exceptions.

Although it could be free as the Beach Bum cars were. Considering it's going to be on Legendary Motorsport only means that it's quality. Given new free DLC logic, I believe it will come free.

Hence why it'll be armored.  Wonder what kind of mods it'll have though?

Rockstar:

 

Everything in the Valentine’s Day Massacre Special will be available for a limited time starting this Friday, but once acquired you will be able to keep them in your inventory for good.

 

I know it states ''Everything''. But I still have to ask. Will they then just remove the car from Legendary Motorsport for good? 

 

I mean, clothes and masks I understand. Christmas Pack DLC already showed us that. But a car is so much more...

From the description id say its gonna be on the legendary motorsport website for a limited period, but for anyone who purchases it they will be able to keep it in their garage forever, or until they sell it

 

idea being to get people to play over valentines weekend, get all their new stuff and for those who dont play... tough sh17

 

i kinda like the "limited availability" concept when you can keep it forever, unlike the Xmas DLC that had a limited period only...

Beware people i will blow my entire savings destroying every one of these cars I see.

Agreed...repeated periods like this with special limited time content will bring much needed diversity down the road when people use these items.
