Design and Performance

The front of the Emperor(Beater)


The beater Emperor in GTA V features a modified design compared to its clean variant. It exhibits a slightly rusty paint job, yellowish headlights, and retains all of its panels and headlights. Inside, it shares the worn interior common to other "beater" models, with dirty and corroded details, torn upholstery, and a missing head unit.

The beater Emperor in GTA V shares identical performance characteristics with its standard counterpart. However, it lacks the physical durability of the standard model, often succumbing to damage after a few direct impacts and occasionally experiencing starting issues.

Prominent appearance in mission


  • Grass Roots - The Drag - Barry asks Franklin Clinton to bring him his broken-down beater Emperor. Franklin has to tow the vehicle using a Tow Truck as the car does not start.


Location


  • Can be commonly spotted around South Los Santos and Sandy Shores

  • Can be found in front of JJ's Forklift Repair in Strawberry


Trivia


  • The beater variant, being an Albany with only 3 headlights, may be a nod to the "Psychobilly Cadillac" from the Johnny Cash song "One Piece At A Time".

  • In GTA IV, the Emperor can be sold at S&M Auto Sales for a maximum of $2,500 after completion of Stevie's Car Thefts.

  • Strangely, Beater Emperors can be found parked in front of the Sandy Shores Sheriff's Station bearing 'SA Exempt' license plates, meaning they are government vehicles.
