The Schyster PMP 600 is a 4-door car featured in Grand Theft Auto IV.

Description

Design

The PMP 600 closely resembles a Chrysler 300C; it is manufactured by Schyster, the GTA equivalent of Chrysler. The intake on the bottom of the front bumper seems inspired by the 2003-present Bentley Continental. All PMP 600s come with car alarms, identifiable by either a horn alarm (the most common), flashing lights, or a beep alarm.

Performance

The engine is a V8 "Semi", and may be a 600 cubic inches, explaining the "600" in the car's name; "Semi" is a reference to the Chrysler 300C's real-life "Hemi" engine. According the Autoeroticar website, the PMP 600 has an absurdly large 600 cubic inch (9.8L) diesel engine. The car handles through corners reasonably well, but suffers at high speeds due to the length and the soft rear suspension. Acceleration is satisfying, although the top speed is limited due to the heavy weight of the car (145 km/h, 90 mph).

Variants

A "sports" variant of the PMP 600 in GTA IV (Rear quarter view).

rightA red PMP 600 which the player's backup from Dwayne Forge may arrive in. Two members of the backup and the player are pictured as occupants.

Requested backup from Dwayne Forge in the form of two North Holland Hustlers members (available when the player's friendship with Dwayne is sufficiently high) may arrive in a uniquely red PMP 600 (besides a Patriot or Presidente of the same color).

  • In the mission Museum Piece, there are three pure white PMP 600 "Sports" parked on the northern side of the museum. These PMP 600 "Sports" variant normally comes in complete black. This is the only time they appear in white in the entire game.
  • In one of Brucie's e-mail-based Exotic Exports, Niko has to retrieve a vibrant maroon red PMP 600.

A sport edition of the PMP 600 can be occasionally been seen on the streets; it usually sports a very dark black, plum or blue paint job, a sport mesh grill in the front, and a small spoiler attached to the trunk. It is often driven by the Mafia.

Trivia

  • The car's "PMP" name may be derived from the term "pimp".
  • The interior of the PMP 600 seems to be ripped from the Schafter, as the steering wheel bears the Benefactor logo, also the logo and dashboard instruments (tachometer, speedometer, odometer and fuel gauge) are less blurred than in Schafter. These features can be seen with using first-person mods.
  • If the player takes a PMP 600 to a Pay 'n' Spray too many times it will turn a unique, dark teal colour. This colour will then be permanent, and no amount of subsequent resprays will change it. This is most likely a glitch, as almost every other car in the game will continually cycle through its available colours each time you visit a Pay N' Spray. The exceptions are the Buffalo from The Ballad of Gay Tony, the Dukes and the Infernus, which all suffer from similar glitches.
  • The two default radio stations in the PMP 600 are Electro-Choc and Radio Broker.
  • Unlike most other cars, the side windows can take several shots from a projectile weapon before breaking, but if the player enters a parked one, he will break the windows very easily with his arm.
  • The PMP 600 is one of the rare cars that comes with a "door ajar" chime, which can be heard when the door is open.
  • The spoiler on the sportier version is similar to the Merit's.
  • In perfect condition this car can be sold in the S&M Auto Sales for $3,200

Locations

Standard PMP 600
Modded PMP 600
  • The modded PMP 600 often driven by the Mafia is commonly found in Westdyke and Leftwood in Alderney, and Little Italy in Algonquin.
  • Six PMP 600s can be found outside the museum during the mission "Museum Piece"; three are black and three are white. They presumably belong to the Jewish Mob. Interestingly, these PMP 600 bears the standard PMP 600 grille, but still contain the spoiler. This PMP 600 can also be found in the mission "Clocking Off".
