Cut Vehicles

Cut vehicles are vehicles or variants of the vehicles that were not made available in the final release of the game. Unavailable vehicles also includes vehicles that can be spawned into the game but are never seen in the game at all. Unavailable variants of vehicles includes different paint jobs and style of the vehicles.

Deleted vehicles

These are vehicles that were deleted or cut before the games' release and cannot be spawned through third party trainers or cheat device.

GTA 2

Several unnamed cars never appeared in the final version.[1]

GTA III

Brigham in GTA III.
Army helicopter

An Army helicopter was cut.

Brigham

The Brigham was a green car that was featured in pre-release renders of GTA III. It was based on a 1977–1979 Chevrolet Caprice (despite the name implying a Cadillac (Fleetwood) Brougham); having the older bumper style compared to the Las Venturas police car from GTA SA.

Diablo Infernus

The Diablo Infernus was a variation of the Infernus which supposedly was to be driven by the Diablos. It may have been removed because it may have been too fancy for Portland.

Luton

The Luton, a box van, which the model's cargo compartment later became the basis for the Mule's. It was cut from GTA III.[2]

Panto

The Panto was another vehicle that was cut from GTA III. The car was planned to be a four-door sedan similar to Fiat 128.[2]

School Bus

The school bus was meant to be appeared in GTA III but it was likely removed due to the absence of children in the game.

GTA Vice City

Coastguard Maverick

Remnants of the Coastguard Maverick include an entry in the handling file (COASTMAV) and an entry in the text file (COASTMA). Nothing else is left of this vehicle and based on those two evidence, the vehicle is most likely a helicopter used by the Coastguard.

GTA San Andreas

Many previews published before the game's release told of about 425 vehicles included in-game.

Airtrain

The plane previously seen in Vice City and Liberty City was replaced by the AT-400. Untextured model and handling still exist.

Bloodring Banger (Oceanic)

Both Bloodring Bangers were planned to appear in GTA San Andreas. Only the "bloodra" (based on the Glendale) is featured, the models and handling of the "bloodrb" (based on the Oceanic) remains.

Dash
Dash texture from dash.txd

Textures can be found in gta3.img. (dash.txd)

Dunemaster

Another Dune. Textures can be found in gta3.img (dune.txd)

FBI Car
An FBI Car view through a program in GTA San Andreas.

The FBI Car was cut from GTA San Andreas. It was similar to the Las Venturas Police Car, but had a different grille. The model was featured in an unused cutscene.

Float

A totally new vehicle. Despite its name, it does not seem to be a boat. It appears to be a train.

Roller

Another new vehicle. Nothing is known about it but its handling, which is very similar to the Caddy's, implying this was meant to be a second golf kart.

Skateboard

A cut weapon in GTA San Andreas but also a vehicle. It was cut during the development of the game and was planned to be introduced in the mission Madd Dogg's Rhymes. The HUD icon is the only remain of the skateboard.

Rio

The famous boat from Vice City was meant to come back in San Andreas. Apart from the handling, there are no leftovers.

GTA Liberty City Stories

Bullion

It was probably a customized Stallion or a Shelby GT500.

Cyclone GT

A fast car which was cut during development. Nothing is known about it.

DeadDodo

Appears in handling file as possibly leftover of GTA Vice City engine.

Evidence

It was probably a car used during the mission L.C. Confidential.

Jester

According to text file, Toyota Supra was going to appear, possibly referring to the Jester.

Lancer MF1

A fast expensive car based on McLaren F1 LM.

Tommy

It was a small car based on Austin Mini.

Skoiloine

Japanese car based on Nissan Skyline GT-R.

Sultan

According to text file, the Subaru Impreza WRX was going to appear, possibly referring to the Sultan.

GTA Vice City Stories

Ambassador

A new boat which was cut. It was still listed in the official game guide, but its picture was replaced with Speeder's, so nothing is known about this boat.

Coastguard Maverick

The same remnants of the Coastguard Maverick from GTA Vice City appears here. They are most likely leftovers from GTA Vice City.

Kuruma

A comeback four-door sedan in GTA III and GTA Liberty City Stories, but it was cut probably for being too modern for the 1980's.

Unnamed bike

An unnamed motorcycle (possibly a different Streetfighter or PCJ-600) was cut.

GTA IV

Andromada

The Andromada plane from San Andreas was cut in the early development of GTA IV. Only the handling remains.

Buffalo

According to audio files, the Buffalo was a cut car until The Ballad of Gay Tony. The FIB Buffalo appears though.

Caddy

According to some hidden audio files, the golf cart was already planned to be available in GTA IV. Its appearance was also delayed until The Ballad of Gay Tony.

Coach

The Coach was cut during the development of GTA IV; however, it can be seen in the Higgins Helitours commercial.

Dodo

This second plane was also cut from GTA IV, the handling can still be found in the game files.

NOOSE Boxville

The NOOSE variant of the Boxville can be seen in the background of an early GTA IV screenshot.

Fighter

The Fighter was a plane meant to make an appearance in Grand Theft Auto IV but was removed. The only notable remnant left in the game is its handling line.

Majestic

This car from GTA San Andreas could appear in Liberty City. It has possibly become the Faction, as they are both based on G-body Buicks. Only few audio files still exist.

Previon

The Previon from GTA San Andreas was meant to return in Grand Theft Auto IV, but only some audio files remain. It could have served as the basis of the Hakumai's design as both cars are based on similarly styled Hondas.

Angel - Daemon - Diabolus - Hexer - Lycan - Nightblade - Revenant - Wolfsbane

Eight chopper motorbikes, finally made available in The Lost and Damned, already had their model and texture in GTA IV. They can be used ingame like normal bikes with help of modifications.

Unnamed SUV

An unnamed SUV that does not appear in GTA IV can be seen on the television in-game.[3] It appears to be similar to the Huntley of GTA San Andreas.

Note: Rockstar has stated in an interview[4] that the reason planes were absent from GTA IV is because "the city was simply too small for effective and enjoyable flying" [4]

The Lost and Damned

Admiral

A different Admiral (internally named "admiral2") was meant to be featured in The Lost and Damned. It is believed that this was going to be the old Admiral (based on a Mercedes). Very few files still exist.

Biff

The same as the above, however there is no clue about the differences to the basic truck.

Rhino

The Rhino tank was cut from the final version, although some files still exist. It is possible that it's design was given to the APC or it may have been a completely different design.

The Ballad of Gay Tony

Robin

A small new car. Its only leftover is the handling. Its name was probably derived from the three-wheeled Reliant Robin car.

Brickade

A large truck similar to the Noose Enforcer and Securicar. Being an armored car, however the Brickade is designed for monetary transport only, and its design is primarily based on a Progesur armored vehicle. Its horn is derived from the FIB Buffalo, however its only similar when an FIB agent or LCPD officer drives it and is blocked by the player. Its model and texture are in the game's files, and can be put into the game via mods. It is obtainable on Xbox 360 consoles through the use of mods or a modified save game file. No known method for obtaining the Brickade has been found yet for PlayStation 3.


GTA V

Hunter

The Hunter can be seen in 2 videos in-game[5], and is listed on Warstock Cache & Carry's Lifeinvader page as an Attack Helicopter.[6]

Combine Harvester

Left in a texture and not used in game, there's a picture of an updated version for V.[7]

Skimmer

Seen in the first trailer.[8]

Horses

They were originally planned to be in V and be ride-able, but were cut. Many files for horses still exist and it can be seen in a commercial on Weazel.

Vulkan

The Vulkan is believed to be GTA V's Hydra, seen in the first trailer and in the game's files. The Vulkan is a state-of-the-art fighter jet[9] that's VTOL[10] and has mounted machine guns and rockets.[11]
