The Ghawar is a non-pilotable private jet in The Ballad of Gay Tony.
The single-engine design is unusual for business jets, which mostly have dual (and sometimes triple) engines for performance and reliability - such as the Shamal. While not used on large business jets, the Ghawar's engine configuration is similar to that being used on the (now cancelled) Very Light Jet, the PiperJet.
The Ghawar's fuselage resembles the Bombardier Global Express private jet.
The interior of the plane is only seen during Departure Time; it is smaller than it appears on the outside and has a total of eleven chairs. The cockpit can be seen if the player looks closely when Ray emerges with a grenade, although it is rather nondescript. There are twenty-four windows inside the plane, all of which are bulletproof.
Ray Bulgarin's Ghawar
In the mission Departure Time, Ray Bulgarin attempts to flee Liberty City in a blue Ghawar while Luis Lopez destroys his heroin shipment in Funland. Timur is left behind and killed by Luis at Funland, who steals a Bati Custom, and then goes after the jet with Yusuf Amir's help in evading several cars of Russian assassins along the way to the airport. Luis catches up with the plane and boards it just as it takes off, and kills all the Russians onboard. Upon emerging from the cockpit, Ray is shot by Luis, causing the live grenade he was holding to detonate, tearing the plane in half. Luis manages to parachute to safety while the halves of the destroyed Ghawar plunge into the sea.
- During Departure Time, the plane doesn't actually move, as it simply hovers in place until the Russians are killed and Ray exits the cockpit.
- A Ghawar is seen taking off in the final credits of TBoGT.
- The plane's serial number is LJK 24051972. 2405172 or 24-05-1972 is a reference to Sam Houser's birthday.
