A VCPD Cheetah in GTA Vice City. Note the red strobe light and brown interior.

The VCPD Cheetah is an undercover police version of the Cheetah used by the Vice City Police Department (VCPD) in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories. It is also known as the Vice Cheetah in GTA Vice City based solely on its model name in the game's files.


The Police Cheetah is driven by two undercover agents equipped with Uzi sub-machine guns who chase you upon attaining a 3 star wanted level. Like most law enforcement vehicles, entry into the car allows the player to activate the Vigilante side mission.

The Police Cheetah is exactly the same as a regular Cheetah, albeit with the addition of a flashing red strobe light and siren. Incidentally, the Police Cheetah is one of the two respray-able police vehicles in the whole GTA series (the other being GTA III's FBI car), making it a great choice for the Vigilante side mission, however in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories the VCPD Cheetah acts as a different vehicle compared to the Vice City rendition and cannot be resprayed. Evading the Cheetah is nearly impossible, and once you get stopped, undercover police men in polos hop out with sub-machine guns.


Grand Theft Auto: Vice City


  • The two undercover officers that pursue you in GTA Vice City and GTA Vice City Stories strongly resemble Sonny Crockett and Ricardo Tubbs, the primary characters from the landmark 1980s TV series Miami Vice.
  • Furthermore, the Cheetah itself is styled after the 1986 Ferrari Testarossa, Crockett and Tubbs' vehicle of choice in the latter three series of the show.
