Redirected from Beta vehicles

Beta Vehicles are vehicles that were not included in the game. There are types of beta vehicles, mainly: Deleted, Spawnable, Beta Names and Beta Models. Deleted Vehicles never appear in the final game while other beta vehicles are hidden in the games' files and can be obtained though modding. They don't be appear nor spawn on the streets. Others have been renamed or remodeled to fit in the final version of the game. Also, some cars looked more like the real cars on which they are based on compared to the final versions which may have been removed or changed to avoid copyright issues.

Deleted Vehicles

These are vehicles that were deleted or cut before the games' release and cannot be spawned through third party trainers or cheat device, but with mods, although some of them will remain uncontrollable.

GTA 1

SWAT Van

The SWAT Van was cut, but can be seen in the official site in section "Special Cars".

GTA 2

Several unnamed cars never appeared in the final version.[1]

GTA III

Army Helicopter

The Army Helicopter was an Apache-based helicopter that was cut and it is replaced by Hunter (which is also based on the Apache) in later games release.

Brigham

The Brigham was a green car that was featured in beta GTA III. It was based on the Chevrolet Caprice.

Buggy

The Buggy was a bit smaller than BF Injection and had opening doors. It was cut from GTA III.

Diablo Infernus

The Diablo Infernus was a variation of the Infernus which supposedly was to be driven by the Diablos. It may have been removed because it may have been too fancy for Portland. In one of King Courtney's missions, he mistakenly says "Diablo Infernus" when he requests Claude to steal him a Diablo Stallion.

Luton

The Luton, a box van, which the model's cargo compartment later became the basis for the Mule's. It was cut from GTA III.[2]

Panto

The Panto was another vehicle that was cut in GTA III. The car was planned to be a four-door sedan similar to Fiat 128.[2] It later appeared in Grand Theft Auto V's I'm Not a Hipster Update.

School Bus

The School Bus was meant to be appeared in GTA III but it was likely removed due to absence of children in the game. Contrary to popular belief, Darkel never gave a mission where the player would blow up a school bus with children inside.[3]

GTA Vice City

Coastguard Maverick

A new helicopter named the Coastguard Maverick was meant to appear in GTA Vice City and was probably used by the coastguards but was cut during development. The model and the in-game name remains in the game files, and it was probably replaced by the VCN Maverick, as it's called "COASTMAV" in the game files.

Dodo

The Dodo was meant to appear in GTA Vice City but cut during development. This is evidenced in the handling file, possibly replaced by the Skimmer or a leftover from GTA III.

Kuruma

The Kuruma from GTA III was going to be included but cut during development. This is evidenced in the handling files and it is probably replaced by the Washington, probably a leftover from GTA III.

Toyz

The Toyz van from GTA III was to be included but it was cut and replaced by Top Fun.

Civilian Patriot

A civilian version of the Patriot was meant to appear, but it was reworked to an army Patriot.

GTA San Andreas

Many previews published before the game's release told of about 425 vehicles included in-game.

Airtrain

The plane previously seen in Vice City and Liberty City was replaced by the AT-400. Model, texture, in-game text and handling still exists.

Bloodring Banger

Another Bloodring Banger was planned to appear in GTA San Andreas. Only the "bloodra" (based on the Glendale) is featured, but the model, texture, handling and in-game text of the "bloodrb" (based on the GTA Vice City Glendale) remains, although the model is highly corrupt. The "bloodrb" in San Andreas, however, does not appear to resemble an Oceanic, but rather a Glendale, like the "bloodra". It can be used with modifications.

Dashound

Dash8bitdecal128b

"Dashhound" decals.

Found in files as "dach.txd". It had GTA III truck wheels, different lights and a California number plate. It is unknown if this was going to be an actual vehicle (possibly a bus, since "Dashhound" is a misspelling of "Dachshund", parodying the Greyhound bus and it shares the same textures as Bus) or just a map object resembling one. The vehicle was probably a dog catcher truck since "Dachshund" is a breed of dog, very similar in pronunciation to "Dash-hound" and the texture represents a dog and an ID number. It returns in GTA V as a coach.

FBI Car

FBICar-GTASA-Beta

Beta FBI Car in GTA San Andreas.

The FBI Car was cut. It was similar in design to the Las Venturas police car, but had a different grille. The model was to be featured in an unused cutscene. The model and a low quality texture still exists in the game and can be turned into a drivable vehicle via use of modifications.

Float

A totally new vehicle. Despite its name, it does not seem to be a boat. Judging by its handling file, it appears to be either a parade float or a train.

Coastguard Maverick

The Coastguard Maverick's handling files exists in the Handling.CFG's.

Roadtrain Trailer

Found on files as 'rdtraint.dff and rdtraint.txd', this is a beta truck trailer. It had GTA III truck wheels and a green body color. The trailer was planned to be pulled by a Roadtrain, as its name suggests. This trailer is also similar to the Articulated Trailer (artict3), although this trailer is shorter.

Rio

The famous boat from Vice City was meant to come back in San Andreas. Apart from the handling and text, there is no leftover.

Roller

Another new vehicle. Nothing is known about it but its handling. It appears to be either a roadroller or a rollerskates. A GXT entry for the Roller exists.

Skateboard

A cut weapon in GTA: San Andreas but also a vehicle. It was cut during the development of the game and was planned to be introduced in the mission Madd Dogg's Rhymes. In the PS2, the HUD icon only remains. However, in the PC version it is a complete weapon, but it can only be found in one of the game's beta interiors. Nonetheless, the weapon will only appear if it is enabled in the game's files. If not enabled, it will be a Knife.

Sabre Turbo

The Sabre Turbo was cut for unknown reasons.

Fenton

Fenton is a beta vehicle that scheduled to be in the final version of the game. It was cut for an unknown reason. Its name is probably a play on Ponton, a classic car made by Mercedes-Benz. So it could be a Mercedes-based vehicle.

Dunemaster

Another Dune or it could be the beta name of the existing Dune. Textures can be found in gta3.img (dune.txd).

Spawnable Vehicles

Similar to the deleted vehicles, but the difference is that they can be spawned through third-party trainers, cheat devices or save editing.

GTA San Andreas

FBITruck-GTASA-front

An FBI Truck in GTA San Andreas, available only through trainers or modifications.

Boxcar

An unused freight car, which was intended to be pulled by the Freight. It can be spawned through the use of trainers, but it will not be attached to the rails and thus be useless. However, it is still possible to utilise the vehicle as a carriage through modifications. Another way to make it appear on the tracks is to switch its ID number with the Flatbed's in the vehicles.ide file.

FBI Truck

An APC that was cut before the game's release. It was planned to appear in the cut mission The Truth is Out There.

Lure Rancher

A variant of the regular Rancher that is essentially identical in appearance, performance and functionality except that it has black-tinted windows. It supposedly was going to be used in the mission Lure, although the regular Rancher is used in the final game.

RC Cam

A "remote controlled" vehicle that is disguised as a pot. It is never used in the game, is rideable and can support two people. However, the name suggests that CJ drives the RC Cam when the player uses first-person view. It is possible that this was used in a mission for Zero, controlling the disguised as a plant.

RC Raider

Appears only during Zero's cutscene in mission Wear Flowers in Your Hair. It does not appear anywhere else, but can be spawned via trainers. Additional modifications are needed to control the helicopter.

Utility Trailer

A trailer that can be attached to Utility Van. It is unknown why it does not appear in regular game.

GTA Liberty City Stories

Bus

The vehicle from GTA III still exists, but only through trainers.

DeadDodo

The full-winged Dodo from III and VC exists in the game, but is unused. If it is spawned, it will appear for an instant and then the game will freeze/crash because it is only meant to fly over a path in the city. It is possible that it was originally flying in the air and was destroyable like other games.

Dodo

The famous small plane from GTA III was to be reintroduced in LCS. It can be spawned via trainers, but the lack of acceleration renders the plane as useless unless the player uses a cheat device. It doesn't have an in-game name.

Ghost

The Ghost from GTA III remains. It is mostly useless as it cannot turn left or right unless the player hits an object that forces the boat to turn. It has loose graphics because some parts can be see-through and when you enter the shade in the boat, the player will become invisible. It is possible that it was going to be used in Shoot the Messenger because it is the only boating mission in LCS. Interestingly, it has in-game name.

Hunter

GTA LCS was made with use of GTA VC engine. The Hunter is proof and can be spawned via using trainers, has working weaponry, but does not have in-game name and cannot be used for Vigilante missions.

Panlantic

The construction van from III exist, but only can be used via Cheat Devices.

RC Goblin and RC Raider

Both remote controlled helicopters appear in GTA LCS files, possibly as leftovers of GTA VC engine. They are never used in-game and can be spawned via trainers. The game will crash if you will try to enter them without cheat devices.

VCN Maverick

Another unused helicopter, probably another leftover from GTA Vice City. It barely has any upward thrust, although the player can yaw (slowly) and bank it left and right.

GTA Vice City Stories

FBI Rancher

FBI Rancher was cut on final version. However, it can be spawned with cheat device.

VCN Maverick

The VCN chopper was cut or is a leftover from GTA VC engine. However, it can be spawned through cheat devices.

GTA The Lost and Damned

Tampa

The Tampa was originally supposed to spawn around Liberty City. Now it is seen only in introduction's cutscene. It is available to be driven in The Ballad of Gay Tony.

GTA The Ballad of Gay Tony

Brickade

A stumpy looking truck that was cut. It can be obtain through modifications and downloading save files.

"policew"

Wrecked version of Police Cruiser. It does not appear in any mission and can be spawned, driven and damaged like a normal vehicle. It could have been a decoy car for a mission.

GTA V

FIB-GTAV-Helicopter

The FIB Helicopter spawned by save editing.

FIB Helicopter

The FIB Helicopter was supposed to be an FIB variant of the Frogger but was removed for unknown reasons. It can only be obtained by spawning Trevor Phillips Enterprises Frogger and setting the livery to 0.
