[[Grand Theft Auto IV|GTA IV]] | based_on = See [[#Design]]. }} The '''Taxi''' is a four-door sedan-based taxi featured, in some form or other, in nearly all of the games in the [[GTA|Grand Theft Auto series]] (one exception being [[Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars]], where the [[Cabbie]] is the only taxi). Distinguishable by its yellow livery, it is often one of the most common vehicles on the road. Between [[GTA III era|GTA III and GTA Vice City Stories]], the Taxi can be used to perform [[Taxi Side Missions|taxi side-missions]]. == Design == === GTA 1 — GTA 2 === In [[Grand Theft Auto 1]], there are three versions of the Taxi; the [[Liberty City in GTA 1|Liberty City]] version is based on the [[Portsmouth]], the [[City of San Andreas|San Andreas]] version is based on the [[Vulture]], and the [[Vice City in GTA 1|Vice City]] version is based on the [[Flamer]]. The Taxi in [[Grand Theft Auto 2]] is similar to an elongated [[wp:Fiat 500|Fiat 500]] with the checkered stripe crossing the roof horizontally.
The Chiliad Challenge
The Chiliad Challenge is a side mission in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. The mission is started by entering a parked Mountain Bike on top of Mount Chiliad between 7:00 and 18:00 and having a cycling skill above 40%. The goal of the mission is to be the first to reach the base of the mountain while racing with other mountain bikers down the mountain. There are three courses that need to be completed for completion.
Whereas in any other vehicle race wherein one can shoot at other contestants and get away with it, in this muscle-based race, if the player attempts to shoot opponents, not only will the player fail the mission, a one wanted star will also be obtained. Typically though, trying the race again at the top of the mountain will help lose the cops. The player can, however, get off and use the sniper rifle (no other weapon can be used) to eliminate them without penalty.
- Scotch Bonnet Yellow Route - $500 and advancement to:
- Birdseye Winder - $1000 and advancement to:
- Cobra Run - $2000
- While in The Chiliad Challenge, get off of your bike and jump off the mountain. Then open a parachute, the game will return you to your bike, but you will still have an open parachute on your back. The parachute then loses all of its function as a parachute. The video can be seen here on YouTube.
- The Cobra Run Course features North Shore (wooden ramps) that did not exist in the early nineties which San Andreas is set, but grew in popularity in the world of mountain biking from the mid ninties onwards.
