============================================================================== GRAND THEFT AUTO V SPECIAL VEHICLE FAQ ============================================================================== Author: Johnny H. H. IV (Lancet Jades) Author's Homepage: http://www.evermoreforums.com/forums/index.php Version: 0.28 (completed October 25th, 2013) Sites with permission to post this FAQ: GameFAQs.com (will always host the most up-to-date version of this guide) Neoseeker.com Gamesradar.com Gamershell.com Supercheats.com ============================================================================== ABOUT ============================================================================== ANYONE WHO IS NEW TO THIS GUIDE, READ SECTION 3.1 This guide is to assist those players who enjoy collecting rare or unique vehicles. This guide lists all known vehicles with some special property that can only be obtained during missions. Although this game does have a mission replay feature (similar to The Ballad of Gay Tony DLC for GTAIV), it creates a discrete instance of a mission, as opposed to a world continuous with the main game world, and as such, vehicles cannot be retrieved via this method, as no data is saved after completing a mission replay (except for mission objective completion). I wrote this guide with the Xbox 360 version, not the PS3 version. I don't know of any differences between the different versions, at least that affect this guide, however I will include any information on known version differences as best I can. If you notice a difference, such as a particular strategy or glitch not working, contact me and let me know (be sure to mention which version you're playing). CAUTION! This guide may inadvertently contain spoilers of story missions! While this guide's scope does not really involve spoiling anything, due to what is required of it, it does possess a list of mission names at the very minimum, which may have the potential to spoil parts of the game. ============================================================================== TABLE OF CONTENTS ============================================================================== 1: Glossary of terms 2: Safehouses and Garages 3: Other information 3.1 - Major changes from GTAIV 3.2 - Character-switch vehicle retrieval 4: Unique vehicles (none yet) 5: Specially colored/featured vehicles 5.1 - Special Orange Bravado Bison 5.2 - Special Yellow Karin BeeJay XL w/ unique plate 5.3 - UW Metallic Black Canis Mesa w/ blank plate 5.4 - Special Yellow Karin BeeJay XL 5.5 - RGO Red PL Roof Matte Yellow Karin BeeJay XL 5.6 - Taxi w/ blank plate (1st of 2) 5.7 - Branded White Bravado Bison w/ winch 5.8 - Special Red Dinka Blista 5.9 - White Vapid Speedo w/ unique plate 5.10- UW Special Black Roof Emperor w/ unique plate 5.11- RGO "Humane Labs" Brute Boxville 5.12- Red Nagasaki Blazer w/ unique plate 5.s1- Fathom FQ 2 w/ unique plate 5.x1- Taxi w/ blank plate (2nd of 2) 6: Unobtainable special vehicles 6.1 - FIB w/ carbine rifle box 6.2 - Black Burrito w/ unique plate 6.3 - "Bugstars" Burrito w/ unique plate 6.4 - Blue Nagasaki Blazer w/ unique plate 6.s1- Light Blue Rapid GT w/ unique plate 6.s2- Green "ProLaps" Caddy w/ golf club bag 6.s3- Bronze Speedo w/ gardening equipment 7: Rare vehicles 7.1 - Franklin's Classic Ice White Bravado Buffalo w/ unique plate 7.2 - Franklin's Metallic Bright Green Western Bagger w/ unique plate 7.3 - Michael's Classic Black Obey Tailgater w/ unique plate 7.4 - Amanda's Metallic Torino Red Ubermacht Sentinel w/ unique plate 7.5 - Tracey's Metallic Yellow Weeny Issa w/ unique plate 7.6 - Trevor's Garnet Red Canis Bodhi w/ unique plate 8: Vehicle list 9: Mission list 10: Frequently Asked Questions 11: Contact info 12: Credits 13: Version history 14: Boilerplate ============================================================================== *1* GLOSSARY OF TERMS ============================================================================== This is a glossary of all the special terms used in this guide. ------------------------------------------------------------ VEHICLE NAMES: Make - The company that produced a vehicle. This is the first name listed in a vehicle's full name when inside of a vehicle. Some examples are Declasse, Karin, and Albany. Multiple vehicles can have the same make listed. Model - This is the traditional GTA vehicle name, and is located after the make, and followed by a comma and the class. This is all that was shown on the screen when getting in vehicles in previous GTA games, and most models should be easily recognizable for veteran GTA players. Class - This is the class of the vehicle, such as sports, sedans, or service. This is simply a reference to what type of vehicle it is, and may indicate performance (e.g., a sports car will be expected to perform better than a sedan, while being less resistant to damage). The class is listed last in a vehicle's full name, following a comma after the model. ------------------------------------------------------------ [F] - This is used to denote a mission that Franklin participates in. [M] - This is used to denote a mission that Michael participates in. [T] - This is used to denote a mission that Trevor participates in. Any combination of the three letters may appear in brackets, describing all characters that participates in a given mission (e.g., [MT] means that both Michael and Trevor are part of the mission). Which characters participate in a mission is based on which character have their missions completed stat increased by 1 after completion (e.g., Trevor isn't listed in the prologue, because only Michael gets credit for that mission). PL - Pearlescent color. This is simply an abbreviation for pearlescent used in vehicle names, to conserve space and reduce length. RGO - Regular garage only. These vehicles either have some property that will disappear if saved in an interior garage, or cannot be stored in an interior garage. They must be stored inside one of a character's safehouse garages. The specifics of the requirement will be outlined in each vehicle's profile. UJ - Unjackable. Vehicles with this property cannot be stolen or driven by the player, even though there's no reason the character couldn't break the window and get in. It's even more ridiculous when they refuse to get on a motorcycle. Regardless, you're simply not going to be driving a UJ vehicle. UW - Unequipped wheels. These vehicles do not have any wheels shown as equipped when modding them, despite the fact they obviously do have wheels. The wheels category in the LSC garage will default to Sport, although the vehicle actually has the default wheels of its class (e.g., Canis Mesa, an off-road vehicle, will have the default Off-Road wheels, although they will not be shown as equipped). Blank plate - A license plate that is blank, with nothing on it. These seem to be found in vehicles that involve switching to another character after a mission they take part in, or at point in the game. Branded - A branded vehicle contains decals, markings, or other indications of belonging to a particular business or brand. Unbranded means the opposite: a lack of branding, usually on a vehicle that normally is branded. Classic - Classic colors are just the color in question with a glossy finish. The only difference between classic and metallic is that the latter has a pearlescent finish to it. Description - A description of unique color/feature vehicles and WHY they are unique. Vehicles with a unique color will have a description of the colors available that most closely resemble their actual colors. Difficulty - A general summary of the relative difficulty, out of 5 stars. The difficulty level assigned to a vehicle will be based on the easiest strategy that requires the least of or no mission failures, deaths, arrests, and cheats. The existence of strategies that utilize those things are usually much easier than ones without (i.e., the difficulty of obtaining a vehicle may be in getting it without failing a mission, possibly putting it at 3 stars, while just accepting the mission failure would make obtaining it a 1-star difficulty). ------------------------------ * Car is practically (or literally) given to player during and/or after mission, or requires very little effort with no skill or luck. ------------------------------ ** Car is readily available, but requires a little luck or a minimum of effort to successfully obtain. ------------------------------ *** Car requires some determination and manipulation of the game to acquire. Possibly a little luck. ------------------------------ **** Car is difficult to obtain, some luck may factor in, and requires a keen knowledge of and skill at the game. ------------------------------ ***** Car is extremely difficult to obtain; very luck-based, requires difficult maneuvers to succeed, such as pushing to a parking spot despite a wanted level. ------------------------------ ********** There's no god here today. Just this vehicle. ------------------------------ Discovered by - This is not necessarily the first person to discover a vehicle, but rather the first person to report it to me. I will add the original discoverer if I'm able to determine who originally found it, however. Equipped - This term denotes what features a vehicle is shown as having in the customization garages. Normally, a vehicle will show its current features, including colors, with an icon in place of the price on the list of options. However, many special vehicles do not show any color on the list as the current color, due to using a unique color not normally available. Formulated by - This is who informed me of the strategy to obtain the vehicle. Vehicles that were pointed out to be, but where I was given no strategy to obtain it often lead to me developing the strategy, although most will have the same entry for Discovered and Formulated by. Jack - To jack a vehicle means to steal it. This is probably not a necessary entry, but I figured I'd add it just in case. Metallic - Metallic paint is the same as the classic color, but has a pearlescent layer on top of it that adds a "luster" to it. When metallic paint is equipped on a vehicle, it will unlock the option to change the pearlescent color. Each metallic color has a pearlescent shade to it. Modded - This simply refers to a vehicle that has modifications already installed. This can make vehicles from missions unique since it may offer modifications for a vehicle before they are unlocked to be purchased normally. A list of the non-stock modifications the car is equipped with will be provided. Most Recent Vehicle - This is a self-descriptive term. It refers to the last vehicle a character was inside. Note that it only considers vehicles a character was actually inside of and driving, not as a passenger. The vehicle "driven" does not have to have been functional, so even stalled and damaged vehicles will work, so long as the game allows a character to get inside. Palette - The selection of colors a vehicle can be found in. Usually randomly selected when a vehicle is created. Each vehicle in the game seems to have a discrete catalog of colors in their palette, rather than randomly choosing from the entire potential list of colors available during customization. Pearlescent - Pearlescent paint is a "luster" that is applied on top of a metallic paintjob. Only metallic colors have a pearlescent layer, and all metallics will have the layer. Pearlescent paint is what makes metallic colors different from their classic counterparts. Each metallic color has a default pearlescent that accompanies it when purchased, but it will also unlock the option to choose a different pearlescent. Pearlescent is only an option for the primary color on a vehicle, and will be applied to the secondary color as well (if one is present). Persistent vehicle - These vehicles are character's personal vehicles in the game. Persistent vehicles are so named because they will retain upgrades and changes made to them even if you end up losing it somehow. They will also always spawn in certain locations (such as outside a character's safehouses). These vehicles cannot be stored in interior garages, despite most being able to fit. Plate - An easier way of saying license plate. Usually only used in the context of unique license plates. Normal "random" license plates follow the format of 2:3:3 letters, numbers, letters. Several unique plate follow this format, and are only classified as unique because it always has the same combination, rather than a random one. Random - Denotes a property that is randomized on a vehicle, such as color. Rare - This is used in the guide to denote an "unlockable" vehicle. Special (color) - A special color is one that does not exist in the color menu during customization, which means the vehicle in question cannot be replicated by customizing. A special colored vehicle's description will try to explain which colors are the closest approximation of the actual color, and in what way the special color is unique. Unique - This vehicle is unique and found in story missions only, or other limited-time availability missions, and thus can be missed altogether. Unlockable - This term in my guide denotes a vehicle that is only infinitely available either through story missions and/or by unlocking it at some point through the story, whether by completing a mission, finishing a side mission, or even a vehicle that is only available during a side mission, but is repeatedly available by doing the mission over and over at your leisure. Unobtainable - A vehicle that, for whatever reason, cannot be obtained and/or stored with its properties. In GTAV, most UJ vehicles are unobtainable due to being unable to get them to a garage (and in some cases, unable to store them in an interior garage). ============================================================================== *2* SAFEHOUSES AND GARAGES ============================================================================== These are places to store your vehicles. There are two types of garages: small, single-car garages, like in classic GTA games, and large, indoor garages that can store multiple vehicles and are an interior. SAFEHOUSE GARAGES: -Can hold 1-3 vehicles -Part of the game world -Found at each character's safehouse INTERIOR GARAGES: -Can hold 4 vehicles -Separate interior, with vehicles automatically aligned -Unique for each character -Will not hold certain vehicles (primarily vehicles too large to fit in the characters' normal-sized safehouse garages) -Allows access to DLC vehicles (and contains an infinite supply of them) All garages are unique for the character listed, meaning other characters cannot access them. Additionally, garages will only repair vehicles if enough time has passed, or if the game is saved and then loaded. Repairs are not instant, as in previous GTA games. Unlike other open-world games, all garages only store one copy of vehicles. If you take a vehicle out of the garage and lose it, it will be gone forever. Make sure to always return your vehicles to the garage after use. Capacity listed for safehouse garages is relative, with the actual capacity depending on the vehicles that are stored. If all entrances to a vehicle are blocked, the vehicle cannot be entered. If all entrances to all vehicles are blocked, the garage is effectively clogged, and can only be cleared by blowing up some or all of the vehicles inside. ------------------------------------------------ FRANKLIN'S GARAGES: ------------------------------------------------ INTERIOR: Grove Street Garage, Grove St., Davis SAFEHOUSE: Franklin's House, Forum Dr., Strawberry --Relative capacity: 1 car + 1 motorcycle (available after Franklin and Lamar) ------------------------------------------------ MICHAEL'S GARAGES: ------------------------------------------------ INTERIOR: Vinewood Garage, Spanish Ave., West Vinewood SAFEHOUSE: Michael's House, West Eclipse Blvd., Rockford Hills --Relative capacity: 2 cars (1 large, 1 small) (available after Complications) ------------------------------------------------ TREVOR'S GARAGES: ------------------------------------------------ INTERIOR: Pillbox Hill Garage, Adam's Apple Blvd., Pillbox Hill SAFEHOUSE: Trevor's Trailer, Marina Ave., Sandy Shores --Relative capacity: 1 (available after Mr. Philips SAFEHOUSE: Floyd's House, Magellan Ave., La Puerta --Relative capacity: ??? (available after Friends Reunited) ============================================================================== *3* OTHER INFORMATION ============================================================================== This section explains various things that won't fit elsewhere in the guide. ----------------------------------------------- 3.1 - Major changes from GTAIV ----------------------------------------------- Several things have changed with regards to vehicle hunting between GTAIV and GTAV. This is a quick list. -Failing missions are no longer recorded as a statistic, leaving no "proof" of failing a mission beyond owning a vehicle that requires it. -Garages return from classic GTA, but are unreliable as a long-term means to preserve vehicles. Parking spots no longer exist. The large interior garages can save 4 vehicles very reliably, but will sometimes not allow certain vehicles (such as the characters' personal vehicles). -Most UJ vehicles are unobtainable, but some can be pushed or towed into a character's safehouse garage to obtain them. -Each character's garages are separate, however it is possible to "transfer" a vehicle from one character to another by maneuvering two characters close to each other, then having one get out of the vehicle and switching to the other, and taking the vehicle. Otherwise, each character's special vehicle selection is limited to what is found in their missions. -"Lustered" vehicles are now pearlescents. Pearlescent is a secondary color that is applied on top of any metallic color (and only metallics). In fact, pearlescent is the only difference between a metallic color, and its classic counterpart. The menu option to respray a vehicle as pearlescent is only available if a metallic paintjob is applied as the primary color. Due to how the game works with what color is "equipped" as the primary color, it is possible to recreate any combination of normal and pearlescent colors and have the result be identical to a seemingly-unique pearlescent vehicle found in a mission. ----------------------------------------------- 3.2 - Character-switch vehicle retrieval ----------------------------------------------- Often you will encounter a vehicle that cannot be parked in a safehouse for some reason, even though you are able to get inside. However, it may be possible to obtain it nonetheless, so long as you are able to switch to a different character. Get inside, then switch to someone else. Waste some time, then switch back to the previous character. If successful, they will either be driving the vehicle in question, or it will be parked nearby. A character not currently in use will return to their default vehicle at midnight of a new day, however, so make sure not to spend too much time on someone else. ============================================================================== *4* UNIQUE VEHICLES ============================================================================== These vehicles only appear during story missions, and once the game is completed, cannot be acquired without cheating. Unique vehicles are denoted by having a unique vehicle name not found elsewhere. Unique versions of existing vehicles are found under specially colored/featured vehicles. (none yet) ============================================================================== *5* SPECIALLY COLORED/FEATURED VEHICLES ============================================================================== These vehicles all have some special color or feature that is not normally found on the vehicle. This makes them unique, as they cannot be found unless obtained during the mission(s) where they are present. These can include randomized pearlescent colors, colors not found in the respray list, features not normally available on the vehicle, and unique license plates. Descriptions will be provided, listing why the vehicle is special. Colors on vehicles that cannot be customized are approximated. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ 5.1 - Special Orange Bravado Bison ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Mission: Repossession [F] (Simeon) Difficulty: * Required: Nothing Discovered by: Lancet Jades Description: This is a bright orange Bison, not to be confused with the actual "bright orange" color. The actual color is somewhere in between classic orange and bright orange, and cannot be replicated with any existing color. It also has unique lighting effects and what appears to be a bright white pearlescent coloring. --STRATEGY 1: Once you reach the alley, run to the Bison and get in. The mission will fail once the window is broken. Choose to exit the mission, and Franklin will still be inside the truck (or standing right outside). Drive it to a garage. --STRATEGY 2: This can be obtained without failing the mission, however satisfying the time requirement for a gold medal may be more difficult. Once the Vagos have been killed and the objective to catch the bike is displayed, get inside the Bison instead of leaving the alley. Use the Bison to knock the driver off the bike, and Lamar will drive it back to the meeting point. Once you've taken the bike there, it will be parked nearby. Formulated by: Lancet Jades NOTE: lol232 reports that in some versions of the game (possibly the European version), jacking the Bison results in an instant mission failure upon breaking the window. This results in the Bison vanishing after exiting the mission, leaving strategy 2 as the only viable method of obtaining this vehicle. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ 5.2 - Special Yellow Karin BeeJay XL w/ unique plate ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Mission: Complications [MF] (Simeon) Difficulty: * Required: Nothing Discovered by: StuntmanSnake Unique license plate: [57EIG117] Description: This is the same BeeJay XL that is found after this mission, however this one differs by having a 'unique' license plate in addition to the unique color. It's questionable how unique the license plate really is, though, as it follows the format for randomly-generated ones, even though it is the same each time. --STRATEGY: This will be found in the showroom immediately after the mission ends. If this is not taken immediately (before leaving the area), it will lose its unique license plate and become vehicle 5.3. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ 5.3 - UW Metallic Black Canis Mesa w/ blank plate ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Mission: Complications [MF] (Simeon) Difficulty: * Required: Nothing Discovered by: Timcatgt Description: A metallic black Canis Mesa with a random pearlescent color and an uncovered back. The license plate is blank, and it doesn't show any wheels as equipped, even though it has Off-Road default wheels. --STRATEGY: This can be found by switching to Franklin immediately after completing the mission. Once in control of him, head north, and this will be parked alongside the road. Note that this vehicle is spawned by the event with Franklin talking to Lamar on the phone, and if Michael gets too close to the location of the event, it will prevent the event from happening. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ 5.4 - Special Yellow Karin BeeJay XL ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Mission: After Complications [MF] (Simeon), before Father/Son [MF] (Michael) Difficulty: * Required: Nothing Discovered by: Lancet Jades Description: Jimmy's SUV, purchased from Simeon during the ending cutscene of Franklin and Lamar. Its color is unique, being somewhere between classic yellow and classic race yellow, with different lighting. --STRATEGY: After finishing the mission, leave the BeeJay XL in the car dealership and go do something else (or load an autosave made after the mission). When you return, the vehicle will still be there, but will no longer have a unique license plate. This vehicle will stay in the dealership until either you have passed Father/Son, or a character enters the vehicle (whether they actually take it or not). ------------------------------------------------------------------------ 5.5 - RGO Red PL Roof Matte Yellow Karin BeeJay XL ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Mission: After Complications [MF] (Simeon), before Father/Son [MF] (Michael) Difficulty: * Required: Nothing Discovered by: Lancet Jades Description: Sitting in Simeon's car dealership after the mission, this is a matte yellow BeeJay XL with a classic dark steel secondary color. The primary color is not equipped, despite being exactly the same as matte yellow. The roof (which is the secondary color) has a red pearlescent color to it, which is very unique considering that it only affects the secondary color, not the primary. RGO reason: The red pearlescent on the secondary color will disappear if saved inside an interior garage. Additionally, choosing to respray the primary color during customization will also remove the pearlescent (although the secondary color can be changed if desired). --STRATEGY: After finishing the mission, there will be vehicles inside the dealership. These will continually appear until finishing Father/Son. This is the BeeJay XL farthest inside the dealership. However, initially upon finishing the mission, this will be a red BeeJay XL. Load an autosave from after the mission, or drive a distance away and back, and it will now be replaced with this vehicle. This will continue to respawn no matter how many are taken. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ 5.6 - Taxi w/ blank plate ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Mission: Father/Son [MF] (Michael) Difficulty: * Required: Nothing Discovered by: StuntmanSnake / Lancet Jades (easier strategy) Description: A plain, ordinary taxi that just happens to have a blank license plate. The taxi does not seem to have a Taxi light on the roof. --STRATEGY: The only way to obtain this is to switch to Michael shortly after finishing the mission. He will be getting out of the taxi. Quickly get inside and take it to a garage. Alternatively, loading an autosave from immediately after the mission seems to generate a random Michael switch event, with this Taxi as his active vehicle, making it that much easier to obtain. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ 5.7 - Branded White Bravado Bison w/ winch ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Mission: Marriage Counseling [MF] (Michael) Difficulty: ** Required: Nothing (Franklin in a SUV or truck helps) Discovered by: Lancet Jades Description: A special utility Bison with a winch in the back and branding for McGill-Olsen Construction, "The Original Cowboy Builder." Similar to the lawn care branded utility Bison. --STRATEGY: This will require maneuvering Franklin and Michael to Michael's driveway, near where the mission starts. Have Michael stand in the middle of his driveway (near the Bison) on foot, then switch to Franklin and have him drive to Michael's house. Get an SUV or light truck on the way (something like a Cavalcade or another Bison is ideal). Once Franklin arrives at Michael's, the mission icon should have vanished. Switch back to Michael once Franklin is in the driveway, which will trigger Franklin to leave the vehicle and comment on meeting Michael like this. Then, have Michael jack Franklin's vehicle, and then push the Bison into the nearby garage (be careful once it gets close to the garage door, or you can pin the door shut and have to start all over). Once it is inside, drive away from Michael's house until the mission icon reappears. The Bison should be waiting inside the garage. Formulated by: StuntmanSnake; refined by: Lancet Jades ------------------------------------------------------------------------ 5.8 - Special Red Dinka Blista ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Mission: Marriage Counseling [MF] (Michael) Difficulty: ** Required: Nothing (Franklin in a SUV or truck helps) Discovered by: Lancet Jades Description: A red Blista that is somewhere between grace red and blaze red. --STRATEGY: This will require maneuvering Franklin and Michael to Michael's driveway, near where the mission starts. Have Michael stand in the middle of his driveway (near the Blista) on foot, then switch to Franklin and have him drive to Michael's house. Get an SUV or light truck on the way (something like a Cavalcade or another Bison is ideal). Once Franklin arrives at Michael's, the mission icon should have vanished. Switch back to Michael once Franklin is in the driveway, which will trigger Franklin to leave the vehicle and comment on meeting Michael like this. Then, have Michael jack Franklin's vehicle, and then push the Blista into the nearby garage (be careful once it gets close to the garage door, or you can pin the door shut and have to start all over). Once it is inside, drive away from Michael's house until the mission icon reappears. The Blista should be waiting inside the garage. Formulated by: StuntmanSnake; refined by: Lancet Jades ------------------------------------------------------------------------ 5.9 - White Vapid Speedo w/ unique plate ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Mission: Chop [F] (Lamar) Difficulty: * Required: Nothing Discovered by: Lancet Jades / StuntmanSnake Unique license plate: [LAMAR G] Description: This is what seems to be an ice white Speedo that has a unique license plate. --STRATEGY: After successfully finishing the mission, Franklin will be inside this vehicle. Just drive it to a garage afterwards. NOTE: This seems to sometimes appear when hanging out with Lamar. As such, it is possible that this is not a "special" vehicle, per se, as it could be obtained even after finishing the game. It will be updated when this is either confirmed or refuted. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ 5.10 - UW Special Black Roof Emperor w/ unique plate ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Mission: The Big Stretch [F] (Lamar) Difficulty: * Required: Mission failure Discovered by: Lancet Jades / StuntmanSnake Unique license plate: [07KZF345] Description: Very unique, this Emperor possesses a special black color on the roof (the secondary color), which has lighting different from any existing color types. The primary color is classic dark blue. It also has stock lowrider wheels, but does not show them as equipped, which makes it even more unique. It also has a unique license plate, although this point is rather moot, as it is already very unique, and the plate follows the normal plate format. --STRATEGY: Once the mission begins, quickly get inside and drive off before either Lamar or Stretch can get inside. Once one of the two is left behind, drive away until the mission fails, than exit it. Now take it to a garage. Formulated by: Lancet Jades ------------------------------------------------------------------------ 5.11 - RGO "Humane Labs" Brute Boxville ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Mission: BZ Gas Grenades [M] (Heist - Smart) Difficulty: ** Required: Completing this mission before Bugstars Equipment Discovered by: Lancet Jades / StuntmanSnake Description: This Boxville has the Humane Labs and Research livery, which is not one of the normal liveries for this vehicle. RGO reason: This vehicle is too large for interior garages to accept. Only a large garage such as Michael's safehouse can store it. --STRATEGY: Keeping this requires jacking it during the mission and finishing the mission with it as your active vehicle. Michael will be inside once the mission is over, and it can be taken to his safehouse garage. Failing the mission will cause the truck to disappear (even if currently driving it), and it does not seem possible to cancel the mission. IT IS IMPORTANT that you do this mission BEFORE Bugstars Equipment, or else this mission cuts directly into the heist, and this truck will be lost!!! Formulated by: StuntmanSnake NOTE: It is possible to complete the optional objective and obtain this truck. Simply make sure to shoot open the back doors and collect the package before jacking the truck. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ 5.12 - Red Nagasaki Blazer w/ unique plate ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Mission: Nervous Ron [T] (Trevor) Difficulty: * Required: Nothing Discovered by: Skellington87 Unique license plate: [TPI1000] Description: Trevor's red quadbike with a unique license plate. The plate hints that this is a vehicle in service to Trevor Philips Industries. --STRATEGY: Keeping this bike is as simple as getting on at the start of the mission and driving to the airfield southwest of the start location. This will fail the mission. Choose to exit, and Trevor will still be riding this quad after the mission ends. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ 5.s1 - Fathom FQ 2 w/ unique plate ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Stranger (Franklin): Paparazzo - The Sex Tape (Beverly) Difficulty: * Required: Nothing Discovered by: StuntmanSnake Unique license plate: [P4P4R4Z0] Description: Beverly's car from the mission, this is metallic torino red with a matte gray secondary color. The only unique feature is the plate, spelling out Beverly's profession in no uncertain or undouchey terms. --STRATEGY: Once the mission begins, quickly get inside and drive off before either Lamar or Stretch can get inside. Once one of the two is left behind, drive away until the mission fails, than exit it. Now take it to a garage. Formulated by: Lancet Jades ------------------------------------------------------------------------ 5.x1 - Taxi w/ blank plate (2nd of 2) ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Switch event: Talk with Tanisha [F] Difficulty: ** Required: Nothing Discovered by: StuntmanSnake Description: A plain, ordinary taxi that just happens to have a blank license plate. --STRATEGY: During the earlier parts of the game, one possible event that may occur when switching back to Franklin will be a conversation between him and Tanisha. After the conversation ends, she will leave in this Taxi. The only way to obtain it is to either have a Towtruck on hand to pull it (which might be difficult), or to shoot at the car, hoping to either scare off the driver, or kill him. Once the car has been stopped, either tow it into Franklin's garage, or push it in with another vehicle (try to get an SUV or Van, as they will push more effectively). Be careful of a wanted level if shots are fired. Formulated by: StuntmanSnake ============================================================================== *6* UNOBTAINABLE SPECIAL VEHICLES ============================================================================== These vehicles are unobtainable for whatever reason is listed. This can include any vehicle type from the previous sections, but as they cannot be acquired permanently, there is no need to put them in those sections. Colors are approximated, considering that these vehicles either cannot be customized, or cannot be driven at all. Only unobtainable vehicles with a noticeable, provable special feature or color will be added. UJ and other unobtainable vehicles that cannot have their color checked and have no obvious evidence of being somehow special will not be added to this list. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ 6.1 - FIB w/ carbine rifle box ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Mission: Carbine Rifles [M] (Heist - Loud) Discovered by: Lancet Jades Description: A regular FIB truck with a wooden box of carbine rifles in the back seat. This box is not found in these trucks outside of the target in this mission. Unobtainable: Failing the mission will cause the truck to disappear, and completing it will lead directly to the heist. Although the truck is driving around prior to the mission actually starting, it does not seem possible to cancel the mission and prevent it from starting. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ 6.2 - Black Burrito w/ unique plate ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Heist: The Jewel Store Job (Loud) [MF] Discovered by: Lancet Jades Unique license plate: [RW1602BO] Description: The only unique feature on this black Burrito is its unique plate. It may seem like a standard plate, but it has four numbers in the middle instead of the usual three. Unobtainable: This van is an essential part of the mission and does not exist outside of it. it will inevitably be left behind while escaping, and failing the heist does not give an option to exit the mission. Even if it did, it's highly likely the van would disappear anyways. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ 6.3 "Bugstars" Burrito w/ unique plate ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Heist: The Jewel Store Job (Smart) [MF] Discovered by: Timcatgt Unique license plate: [TODO PT1] Description: This is a Burrito with the Bugstars livery and a unique license plate. This van is not unique, despite seeming so, as they will randomly spawn in the Bugstars garage outside of this mission. Unobtainable: This van is an essential part of the mission and does not exist outside of it. it will inevitably be left behind while escaping, and failing the heist does not give an option to exit the mission. Even if it did, it's highly likely the van would disappear anyways. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ 6.4 - Blue Nagasaki Blazer w/ unique plate ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Mission: Nervous Ron [T] (Trevor) Discovered by: Skellington87 Unique license plate: [B3L13V3] Description: This is Ron's blue quadbike, and it has a unique license plate that hints at his paranoia and conspiracy theory-based personality. Unobtainable: This bike is UJ during the mission, and will be long gone by the time the mission is over. Failing the mission through any means and exiting will also cause it to disappear, leaving no options for obtaining it. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ 6.s1 - Light Blue Rapid GT w/ unique plate ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Stranger (Franklin): Paparazzo - The Sex Tape (Beverly) Discovered by: StuntmanSnake Unique license plate: [POPPYMI4] Description: This is (supposedly) A Rapid GT that has a unique license plate, betraying that its owner is Poppy Mitchell. It is light blue, but the exact color is nearly impossible to pin down as it is unobtainable. Unobtainable: It will vanish after the mission ends, and cannot be obtained before ending the mission. Failing the mission will cause it to vanish. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ 6.s2 - Green "ProLaps" Caddy w/ golf club bag ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Stranger (Trevor): Vinewood Souvenirs - Mark (Nigel) Discovered by: Lancet Jades Description: This is a green caddy with a ProLaps livery. What makes it special is the presence of a blue golf club bag on the back. Mark uses this as his escape vehicle during the mission. Unobtainable: The only unique feature (the golf bag) will disappear once the vehicle is refreshed, whether in an interior garage, safehouse garage, or even impounded. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ 6.s3 - Bronze Speedo w/ gardening equipment ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Stranger (Trevor): Vinewood Souvenirs - Tyler (Nigel) Discovered by: Lancet Jades Description: This is a bronze Speedo van with a rake and a bag of gardening tools in the back.There is also a helmet in the back of the van, but this will most likely fall out as soon as the vehicle accelerates. Unobtainable: The only unique feature (the gardening equipment) will disappear once the vehicle is refreshed, whether in an interior garage, safehouse garage, or even impounded. ============================================================================== *7* RARE VEHICLES ============================================================================== These vehicles aren't anything inherently special, but are nonetheless unique for various reasons, often requiring completion of a mission or side mission to unlock. These can all be obtained at the end of the game without any problem. In GTAV, this also includes each character's personal vehicles, which are persistent objects in-game, and will retain all modifications and upgrades even if lost or abandoned. These personal vehicles cannot be stored in interior garages, and will usually not properly save even in normal safehouse garages. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ 7.1 - Franklin's Classic Ice White Bravado Buffalo w/ unique plate ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Unlocked: After Franklin and Lamar [F] (Beginning) Unique license plate: [FC1988] **Cannot be stored in an interior garage** **Persistent vehicle** Description: The proud tradition of the Buffalo as a high-powered muscle car continues, albeit with it classified as a "sports" car in this game. This is an excellent car with amazing acceleration, speed, and handling when fully upgraded. Missions the car may also be found in: Franklin and Lamar ------------------------------------------------------------------------ 7.2 - Franklin's Metallic Bright Green Western Bagger w/ unique plate ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Unlocked: After Complications [MF] (Simeon) Unique license plate: [FC88] **Cannot be stored in an interior garage** **Persistent vehicle** Description: This is a rather mediocre motorcycle that is given to (read: forced upon) Franklin by Lamar. It is not necessarily a bad vehicle, but its acceleration and handling leave something to be desired when it competes with the likes of the PCJ 600 and Bati 801. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ 7.3 - Michael's Classic Black Obey Tailgater w/ unique plate ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Unlocked: After Complications [MF] (Simeon) Unique license plate: [5MDS003] **Cannot be stored in an interior garage** **Persistent vehicle** Description: A black four-door sedan with good statistics across the board. Not a bad car, but rather unremarkable given how saturated the game is with sedans. Both the primary and secondary colors are classic black. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ 7.4 - Amanda's Metallic Torino Red Ubermacht Sentinel w/ unique plate ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Unlocked: After Marriage Counseling [MF] (Michael) Unique license plate: [KRYST4L] **Cannot be stored in an interior garage** **Persistent vehicle** Description: The classic GTA car is back, with metallic torino red as the primary color (with a bluish steel pearlescent), and torino red as the secondary - because who can get enough torino red? Missions the car may also be found in: Father/Son ------------------------------------------------------------------------ 7.5 - Tracey's Metallic Yellow Weeny Issa w/ unique plate ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Unlocked: After Marriage Counseling [MF] (Michael) Unique license plate: [P3RSEUS] **Cannot be stored in an interior garage** **Persistent vehicle** Description: This Issa has a unique plate and is metallic yellow with a shadow silver secondary color. The secondary also seems to have a random pearlescent color. Since this is a persistent vehicle in-game, it is likely that the pearlescent is determined when starting Daddy's Little Girl, since that is the first time this vehicle appears. However, the vehicle sometimes spawns in the driveway prior to this mission, and if it does, the pearlescent will be determined then. Missions the car may also be found in: Daddy's Little Girl ------------------------------------------------------------------------ 7.6 - Trevor's Garnet Red Canis Bodhi w/ unique plate ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Unlocked: After Mr. Philips [T] (Michael) Unique license plate: [BETTY 32] **Cannot be stored in an interior garage** **Persistent vehicle** Description: A rugged and robust pickup truck that handles fairly well in the desert of Blaine County. Its speed and acceleration are not the greatest, although upgrades will make it a formidable vehicle. The wheels of this truck are the default off-road wheels, but they do not show up as equipped; a slightly unique attribute. ============================================================================== *8* VEHICLE LIST ============================================================================== This is a list of all vehicles in the game, along with their make and class. The lists are based on class, with vehicles in that class listed by model, and the make afterwards. The model is the traditional GTA vehicle name, while the make and class were mostly left unknown in-game. In-game, when inside a vehicle, the game lists the make, model, and class in this order and format: [MAKE] [MODEL], [CLASS] If n/a is listed for the make, it means there is no make listed in the game. If the make is listed in parentheses, it is not shown in-game, but it can be seen during vehicle selection for races in GTA: Online. NOTE: This list is under construction. Until this message is removed, I will not be accepting additions from others for credit. Feel free to let me know of a vehicle I missed, however I'm still playing through the game, so plenty more will be added as I continue my playthrough. ------------------------------- BOATS: Model Make ------------------------------- Marquis Dinka Seashark Speedophile Suntrap Shitzu ------------------------------- COMMERCIAL: Model Make ------------------------------- Benson Vapid Biff HVY Hauler JoBuilt Mule Maibatsu Packer MTL Phantom JoBuilt Stockade Brute ------------------------------- COMPACTS: Model Make ------------------------------- Blista Dinka Dilletante Karin Issi Weeny ------------------------------- COUPES: Model Make ------------------------------- Exemplar Dewbauchee F620 Ocelot Felon Lampadati Felon GT Lampadati Jackal Ocelot Prarie Bollokan Sentinel Ubermacht Zion Ubermacht Zion Cabrio Ubermacht ------------------------------- CYCLES: Model Make ------------------------------- BMX n/a Cruiser n/a Race Bike Whippet Scorcher n/a ------------------------------- EMERGENCY: Model Make ------------------------------- Ambulance n/a FIB n/a Fire Truck n/a Lifeguard n/a Police Cruiser n/a ------------------------------- HELICOPTERS: Model Make ------------------------------- Annihilator (Western) Buzzard (Nagasaki) Frogger (Maibatsu) Maverick (Buckingham) Police Maverick n/a ------------------------------- INDUSTRIAL: Model Make ------------------------------- Dozer HVY Dump HVY Mixer HVY Rubble JoBuilt ------------------------------- MILITARY: Model Make ------------------------------- Barracks n/a ------------------------------- MOTORCYCLES: Model Make ------------------------------- Akuma Dinka Bagger Western Bati 801 Pegassi Daemon Western Double-T Dinka Faggio Pegassi Hexer LCC Nemesis Principe PCJ 600 Shitzu Sanchez Maibatsu Vader Shitzu ------------------------------- MUSCLE: Model Make ------------------------------- Dominator Vapid Gauntlet Bravado Phoenix Imponte Picador Cheval Ruiner Imponte Sabre Turbo Declasse Vigero Declasse Voodoo Muscle ------------------------------- OFF-ROAD: Model Make ------------------------------- Blazer Nagasaki Bodhi Canis Dune Buggy BF Duneloader Bravado Injection BF Rancher XL Declasse Rebel Karin Sandking SWG Vapid Sandking XL Vapid ------------------------------- PLANES: Model Make ------------------------------- 800 Cuban Duster n/a P-996 LAZER n/a Shamal Buckingham ------------------------------- SEDANS: Model Make ------------------------------- Asterope Karen Emperor Albany Fugitive Cheval Ingot Vulcan Intruder Karen Premier Declasse Primo Albany Regina Dundreary Schafter Benefactor Stanier Vapid Stratum Zirconium Surge Cheval Tailgater Obey Washington Albany ------------------------------- SERVICE: Model Make ------------------------------- Airport bus n/a Bus n/a Rental Shuttle Bus n/a Taxi n/a Tourbus n/a Trashmaster n/a ------------------------------- SPORTS: Model Make ------------------------------- 9F Obey 9F Cabrio Obey Banshee Bravado Buffalo Bravado Carbonizzare Grotti Comet Pfister Coquette Invetero Elegy RH8 Annis Feltzer Benefactor Fusilade Schyster Futo Karin Penumbra Maibatsu Rapid GT Dewbauchee Schwartzer Benefactor Sentinel XS Ubermacht Sultan Karin Surano Benefactor ------------------------------- SPORTS CLASSICS: Model Make ------------------------------- Manana Albany Monroe Pegassi Peyote Vapid Stinger Grotti Tornado Declasse ------------------------------- SUPER: Model Make ------------------------------- Bullet Vapid Entity XF Overflod Infernus Pegassi Voltic Coil ------------------------------- SUVS: Model Make ------------------------------- Baller Gallivanter BeeJay XL Karin Cavalcade Albany Dubsta Benefactor FQ 2 Fathom Granger Declasse Habanero Emperor Landstalker Dundreary Mesa Canis Patriot Mammoth Radius Vapid Rocoto Obey Seminole Canis Serrano Benefactor ------------------------------- UTILITY: Model Make ------------------------------- Caddy n/a Fieldmaster Stanley Sadler Vapid Scrap Truck n/a Towtruck n/a Utility Truck n/a ------------------------------- VANS: Model Make ------------------------------- BF Surfer n/a Bison Bravado Bobcat XL Vapid Boxville Brute Burrito Declasse Camper Brute Gang Burrito Declasse Journey Zirconium Minivan Vapid Rumpo Bravado Speedo Vapid Taco Van n/a Youga Bravado ============================================================================== *9* MISSION LIST ============================================================================== A list of all missions in the game, along with what vehicles are available in those missions. This list is the order used to sort the vehicles. Strangers and Freaks missions are also listed. While the 100% checklist mentions 20 of these missions, there are actually many more, with only some of them counting towards the actual 100%. These list all of the missions, regardless of whether they count. Other sources are for various events that have vehicles. These include random events (that flash the screen and appear as a blue or red blip), switch events (which are special events that happen when switching to a character), and various other places that don't warrant their own "mission" list. Some missions do not count towards the 69 required for 100% completion, but still have an entry in the Replay Missions list, as well as award a medal based on completion of optional criteria (that count towards the 70 gold medals achievement). These will be denoted with an asterisk (*) and numbered with the same number as the previous mission in the list. This keeps the numbered missions at 69 total while still including these "non-mission" missions.
