- "Weather the new Great Depression with a car from the last Great Depression. When this rolled off the production line in 1937, minorities and women knew their place. It was the world's fastest automobile. Now it's the world's most expensive second-hand automobile. One of only 10 ever made, the Z-Type is a car you can really enjoy sitting in, surrounded by army guards, too terrified to actually drive it anywhere."
- ―Legendarymotorsport.net description, GTA V.
The vehicle appears in the Downtown, Residential and Industrial Districts of Anywhere City in GTA 2. It gives a silenced machine gun when crushed. The Z-Type is inspired by the Bugatti Type 57 Atlantic.
The 1937 Z-Type can be bought for $10,000,000 from Legendarymotorsport.net. According to Devin Weston and Legendarymotorsport.net only 10 Z-Types were made - hence the high price tag. It is the most expensive land vehicle to appear in the GTA Series.
The car has a very characteristic handling that results in its ability to calmly accelerate and easily weave through light traffic. This gives the player the impression that it is a relatively easy car to drive, but it is also prone to sudden and unexpected spinouts upon cornering at any speed. Counter-steering is extremely difficult.
Devin Weston requests an all-black variant of this car in the mission Eye in the Sky. Trevor and Franklin are tasked with retrieving it from record producer Chad Mulligan who has hidden it so it can't be taken away from him in his divorce. This mission involves using an LSPD camera in a helicopter to identify and track Chad back to the lockup. Franklin on the ground then has to chase Chad as he tries to escape. This lead onto the use of a thermal camera to detect Chad in a parking garage. Once found Franklin takes the car and drives it to Los Santos International Airport where Devin is waiting. One of Devin's men then take the car somewhere else.
It reaches from stationary to 60 mph(100 km/h) in 6 seconds with a top speed of 155 mph(250 km/h) which is fastest world record of a car in 1937.

- If you park it in Trevor's Vespucci Beach parking spot with Franklin after obtaining it during "Eye In The Sky," get yourself killed, exit the mission and take a cab back to Vespucci Beach as fast as possible (still with F), it will most likely still be parked there, as long as you don't actively drive any other vehicle in the meantime.
