The reason why it's called the 'Roosevelt'?

Hours after Pearl Harbor was bombed on December 7, 1941, the Secret Service found themselves in a bind.

President Franklin D. Roosevelt was to give his Day of Infamy speech to Congress on Monday, and although the trip from the White House to Capitol Hill was short, agents weren't sure how to transport him safely.

At the time, Federal Law prohibited buying any cars that cost more than $750, so they would have to get clearance from Congress to do that, and nobody had time for that.

One of the Secret Service members, however, discovered that the US Treasury had seized the bulletproof car that mobster Al Capone owned when he was sent to jail in 1931.

They cleaned it, made sure it was running perfectly and had it ready for the President the next day.

Al Capone's 1928 Cadillac V-8 "Al Capone" Town Sedan Became the President's Limo in December 1941.

Mechanics are said to have cleaned and checked each feature of the Caddy well into the night of December 7th , to make sure that it would run properly the next day for the Commander in Chief.

And run properly it did. It had been painted black and green to look identical to Chicago 's police cars at the time.

To top it off, the gangster's 1928 Cadillac Town Sedan had 3,000 pounds of armor and inch-thick bulletproof windows.

It also had a specially installed siren and flashing light hidden behind the grille, along with a police scanner radio.

Footnote: This car sold at auction in 2012 for $341,000

I mistakenly described it as a Bentley.

Party like it's the Prohibition era in this armored 1920s limousine. Perfect for a gangster and his moll on their first date or their last. Let the Valentine's Day massacres commence.

The Stinger GT won't disappear if you know how to spawn one offline. It's not exclusively online only, unlike the 2 cars and bike from the Collector's Edition.


Fact is, by the time GTA becomes abandonware, all the DLC cars and any future ones will be accessible through the purchasable garages in Story Mode.

I hope when GTA V turns to be an abadonware, they unlocks every DLC car in GTA Online to buy - in these days is not possible to buy it.
By the way, R* considers it as a stand-alone title and it is treated as such by the developers. Shouldnt be listed it as separate game aswell in this site?
