Beta Vehicles

Beta Vehicles are vehicles that can be seen in pre-release screenshots, videos, or other promotional materials for the game, but do not appear in the final version of the game. This category can also be placed upon vehicles that are found in the game's internal files, but are not set to spawn anywhere and are otherwise unobtainable unless the player uses mods or hacks.

There are several 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 through modding. They don't appear or 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 devices, but with mods, although some of them will remain uncontrollable.



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


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


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.


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


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.


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]


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.


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.


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 Admiral, probably a leftover from GTA III.


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 into an army Patriot.

GTA San Andreas

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


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

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.



"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 could also have been 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.



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.


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 file.

Roadtrain Trailer

Found in the game's 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.


The famous boat from Vice City was meant to come back in San Andreas. Apart from the handling and text, nothing is left over.


Another new vehicle. Nothing is known about it but its handling. It appears to be either a road roller or perhaps a set of rollerskates that function as a vehicle. A GXT entry for the Roller exists.


A cut vehicle/weapon in GTA: San Andreas. It was cut during the development of the game and was planned to be introduced in the mission Madd Dogg's Rhymes. On the PS2 version of the game, only the HUD icon remains. As the skateboard is listed as a weapon in the game's internal files, it functions as one, and it can only be found in one of the game's beta interiors on the PC version. It is possible that it was going to be some sort of pickup-type vehicle (similar to the Jetpack), but it was cut during development due to time constraints or problems with programming its handling. Nonetheless, the weapon will only appear if it is enabled in the game's files. If it isn't enabled, it will be a Knife.

Sabre Turbo

The Sabre Turbo was cut for unknown reasons.


The Fenton is a beta vehicle that was 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, hinting that it could have been a Mercedes-based vehicle.


It may have been a variant of the Dune or it could be the beta name of the existing Dune. Textures can be found in gta3.img (dune.txd).

GTA Liberty City Stories


It was most likely a customized Stallion or a Shelby GT500. The only remaining data is a GXT entry. It was replaced by the Hellenbach GT.

Cyclone GT

Cyclone GT was a cut car, possibly a sports car as referenced by the name. It was cut for unknown reasons. The only remaining data of the car is its GXT entry.[4]


Appears in handling file as possibly leftover of GTA Vice City's engine. Can be spawned via Cheat Device, but it crashes the game.


Evidence was a cut car. It was removed for unknown reasons. It was probably meant to be in the mission L.C. Confidential.


The boat from GTA III does not appear in the game because it's not a properly finished vehicle, though the files still exist. It can be spawned via Cheat Device.


The Jester was a cut car from Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, removed for unknown reasons.

Lancer MF1

The Lancer MF1 was a car cut for unknown reasons. The only remaining data of the car is its GXT entry, and its name hinted that it would have been a sports car, possibly based on a McLaren, as suggested by its ID (MCLARN).[5]

Police Maverick

Was meant to appear in game likely on the Liberty City Police Department HQ's helipad in Staunton Island, but was cut for unknown reasons, possibly because there were no ways to access the helipad. It can be obtained via Cheat Device.

Unnamed Civilian Police Car/Taxi

A civilian version of the Taxi/Police Car was cut. A beige model appears on the opening cutscene of Crazy '69' as Ray Machowski's car. It can be turned into a drivable vehicle via use of Modifications.


The SUV from GTA Vice City and GTA San Andreas was meant to appear in LCS but there's no further evidence. The files are still in the game, as is the handling.


Skoiloine was a cut car. It was cut for unknown reason. The only remaining data of the car is its GXT entry. The ID (SKYLINE) and the name suggest that the car was similar to Nissan Skyline.[6] It also could have been a variant to the Elegy from San Andreas.


According to internal text files, the Sultan was going to appear in the game, but did not make it to the final game for unknown reasons.


Tommy was a cut car, based on the classic Mini Cooper. It was dropped from the final version for unknown reasons.

Top Fun

Textures appear in GTA3PSPHR.img and GTA3PS2.img. It cannot be spawned and it is possibly a leftover from VC engine. It is replaced by the TOYZ.

GTA Vice City Stories


A new boat which was cut. It was still listed in the official game guide, but its picture was accidentally replaced with the Speeder. It has an outboard twin engine with excellent acceleration and knot speed.

Coastguard Maverick

Coastguard Maverick was either cut again or just a leftover from the cut vehicle in GTA Vice City.


The four-door sedan in GTA III and LCS may have been meant to return in VCS, but it's possible that it is a leftover from the GTA Vice City engine.

VCN Maverick

The VCN Maverick would have appeared in the game (as shown in a Rockstar's video about helicopters in Vice City Stories), but was cut without any explanation. It can still be accessed with Cheat Devices.

Unnamed bike

An unnamed motorcycle (possibly a different Streetfighter or PCJ-600) was cut for unknown reasons, but can't be spawned with Cheat Devices.

Top Fun

The van was cut from the final version of the game, but still exists within the game's files. If it is spawned with a Cheat Device, the game will crash.


The SUV from GTA Vice City and San Andreas was supposed to be in the game. Its files still exist, but it has no model.



The Andromada plane from San Andreas was cut in the early development of GTA IV. Only the handling remains, possibly a leftover from San Andreas.


According to audio files, the Buffalo was cut until The Ballad of Gay Tony.


According to some hidden audio files, the golf cart was already planned to be available in GTA IV. Like the Buffalo, its appearance was also delayed until The Ballad of Gay Tony.



The Coach was cut during the development of GTA IV. Its image can be seen in the Higgins Helitours commercial. It was very similar to the Coach from GTA III and GTA Liberty City Stories.


This second plane was also cut from GTA IV. The handling can still be found in the game files, but it could also be a leftover from San Andreas.


Another new plane (possibly a fighter jet similar to the Hydra) was meant to be introduced in GTA IV, but was cut instead.


This car from GTA San Andreas would have appeared in GTA IV. It possibly became the Faction, as they are both based on G-body Buicks. Only a few audio files still exist.

NOOSE Boxville

NOOSE Boxville

The NOOSE variant of the Boxville can be seen in the background of an early GTA IV screenshot.


The Previon from GTA San Andreas was meant to return in Grand Theft Auto IV, but only some audio files and GXT entries remained. It could've served as the basis of the Futo, as both cars are similar.


A private jet can be seen in the TV show I'm Rich, most likely being the Shamal from GTA San Andreas updated for the GTA IV engine.


The S.W.A.T. APC from GTA San Andreas was cut but a new APC was finally made available in TBoGT.

Unnamed SUV

Screen Shot 2013-09-29 at 9.49.50 PM

The Unnamed SUV.

In the CNT show, "I'm Rich", behind Mrs. Vasquez, is an SUV that didn't make it into the final game. The body style resembles a Mitsubishi Montero.

Angel - Daemon - Diabolus - Hexer - Lycan - Nightblade - Revenant - Wolfsbane

Eight chopper motorbikes, finally made available in The Lost and Damned, already had their model and texture in GTA IV. With the help of some minor modifications, they can be used in the base game like regular motorbikes.

GTA: The Lost and Damned


A different Admiral (internally named "admiral2") was meant to be featured in GTA: The Lost and Damned. It is believed that this was going to be the old Admiral (based on a Mercedes) that is found in GTA: Vice City, San Andreas and Vice City Stories. Very few files still exist.


Like the Admiral above, it may have been a variant of the currently featured Biff; however, nothing is known about differences between the basic trucks.


The Rhino tank was cut once again, although some files still exist.

GTA: The Ballad of Gay Tony


The Robin would have been a small new car. Its name was probably derived from the three-wheeled car Reliant Robin, but it also could have been a parody of the Mercedes-Benz Smart. Its only leftover is the handling.



The horn sound of the Admiral can be found in the iFruit app files.

Combine Harvester 

The Combine Harvester from GTA San Andreas was meant to makes a return, but was 


cut for unknown reasons. A photo of it can be found inside the game files. It assumed the GTA San Andreas appearance, albeit with a overall green body.[7] A photo of it and police scanner audio are still in the game files.


The horn sound of the Esperanto can be found in the iFruit app files. This implies an appearance of the civilian Esperanto, along with the police variant featured in the Prologue.


The horn sound of the Feroci can be found in the iFruit app files. Police scanner audio files and interior textures also exist in the game files.



The Hunter from GTA Vice City, GTA San Andreas and GTA Vice City Stories was meant to be included in GTA V, but ended up being taken out for unknown reasons. Sound files and police scanner audio; however, have been left in the game's data. It can be seen in the in-game trailer movie for The Simian[8], as well as on the Warstock Cache & Carry advertisement.

Hunter Beta GTAVe Simian Trailer Rear
It is most likely succeeded by the Savage, a similar helicopter featured in GTA Online.


The horn sound of the Lokus can be found in the iFruit app files.


The Willard Marbelle is a four-door sedan from GTA IV that was meant to return, but was cut. Only its handling and police scanner audio remain.

Unknown Military ATV 


The military variant of the Patriot (called "ATV"), based on the HMMWV M1097A2 variant and similar to the Patriot from GTA Chinatown Wars Nintendo DS rendition, can be seen on the Warstock Cache & Carry advertisement[9]. However, it is not seen anywhere in GTA V, which means that it was deleted early. The possible replacement is the Crusader.

Police Fugitive

It is stated on website that "The Fugitive is the go-to cruiser for law enforcement and those that want to pretend they are law enforcement. The gas mileage isn't so great, but cops mostly sit with the car idling anyways.". Interestingly, the police scanner audio files speaks in dispatcher voice saying "Police Fugitive", meaning there was indeed one in the beta. The Interceptor is likely its replacement, since it lacks a civilian version.


The horn for the Presidente is in the files of the iFruit app.


The Uranus is included in GTA V's handling files, suggesting it may have been in the game at one point. Also horn inside iFruit app was found. Only its wrecked form in rural areas can be found.


An unknown cut car. Only its handling remains. Winky would be a small car, according to its name.


Although there's already an Elegy in the game, another Elegy, possibly meant to be a variant was cut. The current Elegy's model is called "elegy2", suggesting that another variant ("elegy") was cut. Is unknown if it was an older version or a "non-sport" variant.


Same with the Elegy, this Issi may have been intended to be a variant. It is unknown what this Issi would have looked like, but It may have been a hardtop, as most convertibles are, in fact, shared with hardtop models.


The GTA IV version was meant to be appear and coexist with the new Comet.


The GTA IV version was meant to be appear and coexist with the new Feltzer.

RC Vehicle

An unknown cut vehicle, only the audio remains.

The Hellfury from GTA IV was meant to make a return but was cut. Police scanner audio files and horn inside iFruit are still in the game files.


Not to be confused with the Bobcat XL, the shorter GTA IV variant was meant to reappear but was cut. Police scanner audio files are still in the game files.


Nothing is known about this vehicle, only its police scanner audio files are left in the game files.

Unnamed SUV

GTA V Beta Vehicle HHR

The "Unnamed SUV" found behind Simeon's desk. Notice the similarity to the real Chevy HHR

Nothing is known about this vehicle, it is based heavily off the Chevrolet HHR. A photo of the vehicle can be found pinned in Simeon's office at the Premium Deluxe Motorsport Dealership behind his desk.

Air Boat/Fanboat

Unknown Airboat/Fanboat. The only remains are the police scanner referring to its vehicle category. The likely reason for its removal is that airboats are primarily used in swamp-like area's whereas the only in-game location that would be able to use it to it's full potential is in Lago Zancudo


Unknown Hydrofoil boat. The only remains are the police scanner referring to its vehicle category.


Skateboard was cut again. Only police scanner remains, although Skateboard exist in-game as a prop.

Steel Horse

A brand from GTA IV was meant to reappear. While there are no playable Steel Horse vehicles in GTA V, the office of Beeker's Garage in Paleto Bay, Blaine County features a manual for a Steel Horse featuring Steel Horse logos, and a similar poster.

There was probably a police variant of the Buzzard helicopter. Texture remains in game files. However, "N230MP" exists in the unarmed Buzzard, which is often used by the LSPD and can spawn wherever Police Mavericks spawn. Only the stencil was deleted from the in-game version.


Unknown vehicle. Name suggest that it was army version of Cavalcade. Interior textures were found.

Spawnable Vehicles

Spawnable vehicles, or unused vehicles, are similar to deleted vehicles. The only difference is that, even though they are complete in the games' files, they are unused and do not appear regularly in the game or are only used for specific missions. These vehicles can be spawned via cheats, cheat devices, trainers or mods whereas deleted vehicles (for the most part) cannot be spawned.

GTA San Andreas


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


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 automatically attach to the rails and thus will be useless. It is still possible to utilize 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 RC vehicle 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


The vehicle from GTA III still exists, but can only be used with the help of trainers or cheat devices.


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 predefined path in the city. It is possible that it was originally flying in the air and was destroyable like other games.


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.


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 as some parts can be seen 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.


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.


The construction van from III exists, but can only 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 is unused in the final version but it can be spawned with a 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


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


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


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.



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.

Bale Trailer


The Bale Trailer spawned by save editing.

A trailer as its name implies it was loaded with bales and it was meant to be town by the Fieldmaster. The model can be spawned through Save Editor.


The Grain Trailer spawned by save editing.

Grain Trailer

Similar to the also cut Bale Trailer, it was also meant to be towed by the Fieldmaster. The model can be spawned through Save Editor.
