Description

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.

According to the Autoeroticar website, the PMP 600 has an absurdly large 600 cubic inch (9.8L) diesel V8 "Semi" engine, hence the "600" in the car's name; "Semi" is a reference to the Chrysler 300C's real-life "Hemi" 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

"Sport edition"
  • 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.
  • Six PMP 600s presumably belonging to the Jewish Mob can be found outside the The Libertonian during the mission "Museum Piece"; three are black and three are white. Interestingly, these PMP 600 bears the both PMP grilles at the same time by mistake. If the player user a trainer to remove and add accessories, both of the grill accessories can be removed. This PMP 600 can also be found in the mission "Clocking Off".
With unique colors

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
  • In the first trailer of the game a Beta verison of the car is seen with a wider grill and very different headlights.The car looked like a copy of the Chrysler 300.
