Hot Wheels is a mission in Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories, given to protagonist Toni Cipriani by Leone Family Caporegime Vincenzo Cilli from his warehouse in Atlantic Quays, Portland, Liberty City.


Toni drops by Vincenzo's warehouse in Atlantic Quays looking for more work. Vincenzo is at first on the phone to his mother and then says goodbye. Toni berates Vincenzo for his 'multi-tasking' with Cheryl with her head in his pants whilst on the phone to his mother, not showing her the proper respect. Vincenzo tells Toni about his drug filled Banshee that he needs picking up in order to supply more Leone-controlled drugs into the city.

Toni goes to the car and attempts to drive away, at which point the police enter the scene and begin to chase Toni, resulting in the player acquiring a 3-star wanted level. Toni manages to drive away from the police and uses the Pay 'n' Spray in Red Light District to lose the police. Toni drives the car to a Leone lock up in Portland View and receives a phone call from Vincenzo. Toni accuses Vincenzo of setting him up, while Vincenzo says he is ungrateful for the things his given him like a job and an apartment. The pair argue before Toni quits his job with Vincenzo. Toni then takes the car to the car crusher in Harwood and has the car crushed, to send a message to Vincenzo. Toni pockets the money from the car and the mission is complete.


Vincenzo Cilli: Sure, momma. I'll call you later.

Toni Cipriani: Vincenzo!

Vincenzo Cilli: Yeah of course, of course I'm being a good boy. Love you. Hey Cheryl, hey sweetheart, give it a rest now. Here now get out of here. A little trumpetto for you. Hey who loves you, angel?

Cheryl: You do Vinnie.

Toni Cipriani: Was that your mother on the phone?

Vincenzo Cilli: Sure.

Toni Cipriani: You're disgusting. Where's your respect?

Vincenzo Cilli: Respect? I call it multi-tasking, Antonio. What? You don't like a hot broad to suck you off?

Toni Cipriani: What?

Vincenzo Cilli: Cause if it's a problem, I can get Ray to help you out.

Toni Cipriani: Fuck you.

Vincenzo Cilli: I'm just busting your balls, relax. Listen, tough guy - I need you to do me a favor. I got girls crazy for blow; I got a car full of it parked in Trenton. Go pick it up... give me a call.

Toni Cipriani: What am I? Your driver? Screw you.

Vincenzo Cilli: Listen, listen, listen, listen... I'd do it myself, but I'm being watched by the feds. You know I'll look out for you. Trust me. Besides, remembers there's a hierarchy here, Capiche? Now be a good kid.

(Toni gets to the car and attempts to drive off in Vinnie's car)

LCPD Officer: Police! Don't move asshole!

(Toni drives away from the police, losing them using the Pay 'n' Spray and receives a phone call from Vincenzo)

Vincenzo Cilli: Hey! Toni, how's the car?

Toni Cipriani: You son of a bitch, Vinnie! You set me up!

Vincenzo Cilli: Set you up? SET YOU UP? When you came back to the city you had nothing! NOTHING! I set you up alright, you ungrateful bastard! With an apartment and a job! And for that generosity I expect you to take a few risks now and then. I ain't a charity, pal, okay? And I ain't your sugar daddy. So the police were watching the car! Screw the police! When I tell you to do something, you do it. Capiche?

Toni Cipriani: Oh, yeah, I understand Vinnie. I understand that as long as I work for you, I get treated like a bitch. I was making scores while you were looking up girl's skirts. Have your bitch job back, 'boss'. I quit.

Vincenzo Cilli: Toni, you're making a big...

(Toni hangs up)


There is no monetary reward for completing the mission except the money from crushing the car. The mission Snappy Dresser for Ma Cipriani is unlocked after completing the mission.


  • In Grand Theft Auto Advance, there is an another mission called Hot Wheels, which also consists of stealing a Banshee.
  • Hot Wheels is a real life brand which manufactures diecast toy cars, usually in 1:64 scale.
  • This mission is one of the few opportunities to obtain a Banshee before Staunton Island is unlocked. To obtain the vehicle, here are two methods available:
    • Take the Banshee to the Portland Safehouse garage, then destroy it while it's in the garage. Get out of the garage to allow the door to close, then re-open the garage. The Banshee should be sitting in the garage, now fully repaired and functional.
    • Drive the Banshee into the water near the waterfront, with the car being partially submerged deep enough that it is counted as "destroyed" and the car facing the water. Back out quickly to avoid losing too much health, then drive the car to the Portland Safehouse garage.
      • Both methods will award the player a Banshee at the expense of failing the mission.
