Types

Ability Code Description
Bullet-proof BP Bulletproof cars typically means the car is immune to gunshots. To try if a car is bulletproof, the player can shoot it many times and if there is no smoke coming from the car, then the car is bulletproof.
Fire-proof FP This is the least valuable of all special properties available, a car that is bestowed with a fire proofing won't catch on fire from any flames surrounding the car, this means Flame Thrower or Molotovs. However plain fire proofing cars are extremley rare, and isn't to helpful otherwise.
Explosion-proof EP An explosion-proof car mean that the car is immune to rockets, satchel charges, bombs, etc. However, just because a car is explosion-proof, does not mean the car cannot be destroyed via cheats, or in the car whilst on fire.
Damage-proof DP Damage-proof ability is one of the best abilities of a car has but this is extremely rare, the car can't recieve any exterior damage, this means the player can crash the car many times without being destroyed, this also implies to melee weapons which also won't destroy the car.
Pop-proof Means that the car's tires cannot be popped by a spike strip, or guns and weapons, however all of the pop-proof tires vehicles cannot be saved.
Unique Paintjob These are simply cars with a unique paintjob to it, that can't be obtained via Pay N' Spray or mod shop, and can only be found in the specific missions they are created for. Using a Pay N' Spray on any of these vehicles will remove the colour and it won't be obtainable again.
Rare Bold print Means that the vehicle cannot be found on the streets but only appear in some missions like the Phoenix in San Andreas. Rare vehicles can be saveable unlike unobtainable vehicles.
Unobtainable Means the car for whatever reason (exclusive for cutscenes, immovable, limited, etc...) cannot be saved, without losing the special property that it has acquired.

Destroying a special vehicle

Not all special vehicles are destroyable. There are many of ways to destroy a BP/FP/EP/DP car, this includes:

  • Flipping the car up-side down
  • Getting hit by a Rhino
  • Sinking the car
  • Using the Blow-up all cars cheat
  • Getting in the car while on fire
  • Taking it to a girlfriends' house and have coffee with her then the car will lose its special property and simply become normal.

Notes

Grand Theft Auto III

  • The Dull Gray Fbi Car can be requested from the Emergency Vehicle Import/Export Crane after delivering all emergency vehicles.

Grand Theft Auto: Vice City

  • The Love Fist can be only obtained in missions in some of the PS2 versions, that's why it's a special vehicle.
