Unlike the [[FBI Rancher]], the FBI Washington emits a siren but has neither a visible strobe light nor an actual light emitted from the where the "invisible" strobe light should be. This flaw was rectified in GTA Vice City Stories, in which a red light is emitted from the dashboard (without an actual strobe light visible). Regardless, the FBI Washington's siren can be used to clear the road ahead from traffic. The FBI Washington is a undercover car but due to its only kind with it's dark gray body color its stands out from the rest of the traffic.

The FBI Washington is a four-door variant of the Washington adopted for use by the FBI in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories. It has better handling and is faster than the standard Washington.

Description Edit

Design Edit

When first introduced in GTA Vice City, the FBI Washington sports only minor differences that distinguish it from a conventional Washington. The most evident difference is its unique body color (dark gray in GTA Vice City, and white in GTA Vice City Stories), as well as side trims that run from the front to the back and over the wheel wells. The FBI Washington is more stable than the Police Car in the game, which has a tendency to roll on the slightest grade. The player may also use the FBI Washington to start Vigilante missions.

Unlike the FBI Rancher, the FBI Washington emits a siren but has neither a visible strobe light nor an actual light emitted from the where the "invisible" strobe light should be. This flaw was rectified in GTA Vice City Stories, in which a red light is emitted from the dashboard (without an actual strobe light visible). Regardless, the FBI Washington's siren can be used to clear the road ahead from traffic. The FBI Washington is an undercover car but due to its only kind with its dark gray body color its stands out from the rest of the traffic.

Adoption by the FBI Edit

While implied to be used by the FBI to pursue a player with a 5-star wanted level, the FBI Washington is not normally driven by FBI agents in GTA Vice City, as the FBI Rancher already serves this purpose. Instead, the FBI Washington is only available behind a music store just south of the Well Stacked Pizza in Downtown Vice City. In GTA Vice City Stories, however, the FBI Washington effectively replaces the FBI Rancher as the vehicle of choice by the FBI, implying that it was probably phased out as the vehicle of choice by the FBI between the events of both games.

Color Edit

In GTA Vice City Stories, the FBI Washington's original color is white, but when the player first gets 5 wanted stars and these vehicles start appearing, the car sometimes appear black, rarely sky blue, though it changes its color back to white after some time. Sometimes, FBI Washington's can mysteriously change color when driving, right before the players' eyes, even while being driven by the player. Also, the FBI Washington's that are used for barricading the roads are white.

In GTA Vice City, the FBI Washington always appears in a dark gray colour with some chrome trimming down the side of the car.

Trivia Edit

  • Due to its near similar design to a regular Washington, the FBI Washington can occasionally be confused as being used by the French during "All Hands On Deck" in GTA Vice City. However, their cars are actually regular Washingtons, as evidenced by their lack of side trimming and the fact that they are black, while the FBI Washington is dark gray.
  • In GTA Vice City, the FBI Washington is one of the only two law enforcement vehicles that can be repaired/resprayed at the Pay 'n' Spray. (The other being the VCPD Cheetah). Even though the FBI Washington can be resprayed, but the FBI Rancher can not.
  • In GTA Vice City Stories, the car cannot be repaired/resprayed thus making it difficult to obtain one, one way to get on is to survive a five-star rampage and then going to the Pay N' Spray hopefully having the chance of the car being there, but since the FBI blockades in GTA Vice City Stories easily take down any car the best way to do this is to buy a bullet-proof vehicle and then getting five-stars, going to the Pay N' Spray and if the blockade was near the area then there should be an FBI Washington.
  • Again, in GTA Vice City Stories, the FBI Washington has the same engine sound as the Taxi, in addition to having the same horn as the Bobcat, which is odd compared to the Vice City version.
  • In GTA Vice City, When inputting the "Pedestrians come to your car" cheat, and put it near a cop, you will not receive a wanted level. (usually, a one-star wanted level is gained If you put the cheat near a cop while in a Police vehicle)
  • The FBI Washington in GTA Vice City is probably an unfinished vehicle, considering its very similar look to a regular Washington, unseen siren, hidden place to find it, it can be resprayed/repaired and the fact that FBI agents never use it.
  • In GTA Vice City, the FBI Washington shares the same horn as the Kuruma and the FBI Car from Grand Theft Auto III
