|This article or section needs to be cleaned up to meet the standards of the GTA Wiki.|
This is a list of Special Vehicles throughout the 3D Universe. Special vehicles are a type of vehicle that has unique qualities in contrast to standard ones. Such of these are unique/permanent colors and proofing against bullets, explosions, fire, or collisions.
|All-proof||AP||The vehicles receives no damage everywhere. (BP/FP/EP/DP)|
|Bullet-proof||BP||The vehicle receives no damage from direct hits from bullets.|
|Fire-proof||FP||The vehicle receives no damage from any flames or fires except when the vehicle is already burning from other forms of damage.|
|Explosion-proof||EP||The vehicle receives no damage from any explosions inflicted upon the vehicle.|
|Damage-proof||DP||The vehicle receives no damage from collisions or any form of physical damage (i.e. melee weapons).|
|Tip-proof||TP||The vehicle will not go in flames when it's tipped over. This property is available in GTA Liberty City Stories and GTA Vice City Stories|
|Permanent Color||PC||The vehicle's paintjob cannot be changed in a spray shop when it could otherwise.|
|Heavy||H||The vehicle's mass is greater than it should normally, meaning the vehicle will lose less momentum when colliding into dynamic objects. The downside to this is that collisions will damage the vehicle more than it would normally and it reflects the same amount of your hit.|
|Unique Paintjob||Name of color||The vehicle's paintjob is unique and cannot be obtained through spray shops or mod shops. However, the unique paintjob can be painted over and lost if the player enters a spray shop with the vehicle.|
|Unique Handling||UH||The vehicle's handling is altered to let the player be able to cut corners and turn more quickly than normal.|
|Pop-Proof||PP||The vehicle's tires cannot be popped by any means.|
|Water-Proof||WP||The vehicle will not sink in the water where it will just blast through, falling into Blue Hell.|
|Double Damage||DD||The vehicle will take two times more damage than ordinary vehicle.|
|Rare||R||The model of the vehicle appears only a few times during missions in the game.|
|Unobtainable||U||Cannot be obtained legitimately. You can only get it through trainers or Cheat Device (LCS, VCS). Some cannot be obtained without complete modifications of the game.|
- Destroying a proofed vehicle
Proofed vehicles are not indestructible. There are many of ways to wreck a BP/FP/EP/DP vehicle, including:
- Flipping the car up-side down. (Won't work on tip-proof vehicles).
- Getting hit by a tank (excluding APC's)
- Sinking the car in the water. (Won't work on water-proof vehicles.)
- Starting race with a vehicle
- Using the Blow-up all cars cheat.
- Getting in the vehicle while the player is on fire.
- Using a car bomb to detonate the vehicle.
- Taking the car to the Harwood Autocrusher and Junkyard autocrusher to crush the vehicle.
- Taking it to a girlfriends' house and have coffee with her. The car will lose its special property and simply become normal again.
- Punching or kicking it while having a parachute equipped as weapon
|Vehicle||Unique Color||Unique Handling||Special Abilities||Mission||Notes/How To Acquire The Vehicles Guide|
|Any vehicle||Yes (64 options)||Yes||No||Airport Flight Ticket Booth||
Method to install any modification from any modding garage on your vehicle:
Having an unused phonecall will help greatly, but if you don`t you can still use a girlfriend call, or the Owning to the Casino call, but will be much harder. Go to Trucking/Quarry and exit your vehicle to start the mission as the same time you get a call, now you will be able to do things you normally wouldn`t during a mission. Go to one of the 3 airports in the game, and buy a flight to another airport about 5 seconds before failing the mission. When the mission fails, you will be granted movement during the flight, now go to the desired mod garage before the plane reaches the destination. You are not allowed to accelerate your vehicle or run when on foot or the flight will be skipped. When you reach the chose mod garage skip the flight. Now you will have to find your way to a door to restore the view from the interior view, or find a garage that is seen in the interior world. With this trick you can basically recreate the Pony with offroad wheels from Life`s a Beach as well most of the unique colors vehicles with the few following exceptions, which are vehicles with colors not available on mod garages:
Mesa (Robbing Uncle Sam), the 3 Nebulas (Just Business), Maverick (Toreno`s Last Flight), Vortex (Boat School), Vincent (Debt Problems), Club (import from crane in Easter Basin), Hustler (Denise as girlfriend)
Loco Low Co:
Wheels Arch Angels:
Unique color Andromada:
Important: Some vehicle will not show the color installed on them. Also, trying to install some mods on some vehicles will cause the game to crash, the list below provide some information regarding that:
|Any vehicle||No||No||AP||Quarry mission 7 + date with Barbara or Millie||
Make sure you have a storyline call (calls that unlock a mission), they are not mandatory but make things easier. Grab a vehicle and park to the right of the red sphere in Quarry, and exit the vehicle, you should start the Quarry mission and get a phone call, ignore it and go date Barbara or Millie, complete the date and go to hot coffee cutscene. wait for the Quarry mission to fail, then drive the desired vehicle to the water, and then answers yes to the coffee invite, after that push the vehicle out of the water and you will have transformed your vehicle into AP:
Some vehicles are harder to sink and will require a specific strategy to make them AP:
Small planes and normal helicopters:
|Admiral||No||No||AP||Los Sepulcros(AP) /You've Had Your Chips(AP) /You've Had Your Chips (EP)||Save a Tow Truck in the Ganton Garage, get in, leave Sweet behind, kill one of the Ballas to fail, then tow the locked Admiral to a garage. (Los Sepulcros)(AP)
Get into the car, drive to any safehouse, place a satchel charge onto the Admiral. Kill yourself to fail the mission, then come back to your safehouse. (You've Had Your Chips)(EP)
Place satchel charges on the machines and destroy them all at once outside the building while facing away from the locked gate. Admiral will spawn quickly - kill the driver quickly before the Admiral stops and get in (after killing his accomplices). Destory the Admiral just outside the last mission waypoint by visiting 8 Ball's car bomb shop and detonating the bomb. Get in the waypoint AFTER it explodes, then wait for a firetruck to come and use it to push the wreck to a nearby garage. Line the wreck up perpandicular to the door, nudge it slowly until the firetruck opens the door, and then quickly shove the car in. Don't let the wreck out of your sight, and don't let it hit the side walls/door of the garage. (You've Had Your Chips)(AP)
|Banshee||No||No||EP||Gray Imports||Before starting the mission, try to own some strong weapons like the Sub-Machine Gun or AK-47. Then go and start the mission. Make your way to the dealer. Then the dealer will run for the Banshee. Don't stop your path. Chase him and make sure he doesn't get in the Banshee (otherwise it isn't EP). Remember that the dealer has more health, so keep shooting him before he gets in the Banshee. Then after killing him, get a big car like a Boxville, Yankee, Mule, etc. Push the EP Banshee to a garage and save your game.|
Make CJ health very low and make him starve, start Bloodbowl at the same time you get a call, hold TAB/L1 before failing the Bloodbowl and while holding TAB/L1 go to Zero`s shop start the mission. After starting the mission release TAB/L1 and die of starvation, then go back to Zero shop go start the mission a second time, which will fail, now pray the a Berkely RC Van will fall from the heaven in a convinient place. Make sure you don`t press the aim or fire button until the RC Baron has been destroyed or it will crash the game.
|BF Injection||Black, Red||No||None||Cut Throat Business||Kill Madd Dogg then take the car to a garage.|
|BF-400||No||No||UC and mutant / AP||Just Business||
Play like normal up until you and Smoke are outside and now you will have to kill the handful of Russians like shown in the Video leaving three of them alive. Dash to the Impound to retrieve your fast Car and now hurry up to the Transfender Mod Shop. When you arrive, quickly drive it into the Transfender and into the red marker. If you are successful with all of this, then all you have to do now is wait. Like in the Video, wait for the cutscene to take place while inside Transfender and then continue to wait for the next cutscene and at this time, you will have to quickly buy the Color you desire for the BF-400 as well as the wheels (other modifications crash the game). At this point the Mission will fail and the Transfender Garage will open up but you no longer will be sitting in your Car (Mutant and unique color).
Start the mission with OMF0 by starting 8-track at the same time you get a call, but you need to hold TAB/L1 before 8-track starts, then start Just Business, after starting Just Business release TAB/L1, now go until the part where CJ and Smoke kill russians outside, and go to sprunk machine while Smoke is killing them, when the last red dot vanishes from the map buy a drink. Now you can jump from the bike during the chase, jump when close to Smoke`s house, hold your aim over the red sphere in Smoke`s house and wait, then eventually the mission should restatart. Later go under the bridge in Ganton and fail the mission and put the bike in your garage.
Mutant and AP:
|Blade||No||No||FP||High Stakes, Low Rider||Same with the Savanna Method.|
Make sure you have phone calls available. Go to hunter Quarry with a bike and park a bike on the right of the red sphere to start the Quarry mission, you should get a call during the mission, when you get a it hold Tab/L1 and go to the Airstrip (if you want to go using a vehicle make sure your secondary fire bound key is TAB), start Stowaway mission and release TAB/L1 at the cutscene after Toreno`s leave (don`t skip the cutscene), this will give CJ movement during the cutscene, now quickly destroy the bike with a minigun.
|Boxville||No||No||AP||T-Bone Mendez||Use the blow up all cars Cheat, then push to a garage.(With Cheats)
Use a Firetruck to knock the Boxville from the near high place. Drive the Boxville back to a garage avoiding cutscene and destory it by getting in the vehicle while player is on fire or another ways. kill yourself to fail the mission, and go to your garage.(Without Cheats)

(Misappropriation)
Alternatively, the player can do a longer method to complete the mission AND have the AP Buffalo. Before starting the mission, make sure you have access to an Hunter (can be spawned by cheating or by getting a gold medal of every test of the Pilot School), and a Tractor in the Prickle Pine Safehouse garage. Go to the location with the Hunter and shoot the FBI agents to be spotted. Fly to the safehouse and drive the tractor to the top floor of the Emerald Isle parking lot.

Now, the "fun" part is that you'll need to push this vehicle to a garage. You can push it to either the safe-house in Dillimore or the safe-house in Palomino Creek.
Alternate method: Damage your car to the point where black smoke shows. Enter the marker.

It uses the same method as modding vehicle with the Airport flight Trick, but instead of going to a garage, you go to a fast food, then you skip the flight.

|Leviathan||No||No||AP||Up, Up and away||
Unlike the video that uses bike school, hunter quarry is a lot easier. Take a bike and park to the right of the red sphere that starts Quarry mission, you should start the mission and get a call during it, when you get it hold TAB/L1, then don`t release it and let the mission fail. Start Up, Up and away and only then release TAB/L1.
