Salvatore returns to Luigi's Sex Club 7
Salvatore arrives at Salvatore's Gentlemen's Club

Salvatore Leone recently set Claude into a death trap and betrayed him. Claude now wants revenge and is going to work for the Yakuza. But the Yakuza leader Asuka wants Claude to show his loyalty and that his ties with the Leone Family are broken by asking him to kill Salvatore who is leaving Luigi Goterelli's club.
Claude gets a car and starts driving over to Luigi's Sex Club 7 in the Red Light District of Portland where Salvatore is. Upon arriving he waits until Salvatore exits the club and finishes him off while avoiding any possible attack from the Leone bodyguards.
Asuka Kasen: We have certain issues to clear up before we can continue any form of relationship, business or otherwise. Let's lay our cards on the table. I am Yakuza and I know you've been working for Salvatore Leone's family. I can give you work with our organization. But first you must prove to me that your ties with the Mafia are truly broken. Salvatore Leone will be leaving Luigi's in about three hours time. Make sure he doesn't reach his club alive. Meanwhile Maria and I will catch up on old times.
Maria Latore: Oh.. Asuka, you've got a massager.
Asuka Kasen: That's not a massager.
(If the Mafia sees Claude.)
Leone Family mobster: There he is! Waste him!
The reward for completing this mission is $25,000 and the unlocking of the next mission, Under Surveillance. The Leone Family also become violent towards Claude when visiting their turf on Portland. The mission Bling-bling Scramble for King Courtney will also be unlocked once the player enters Staunton Island.
- The name of this mission has an ironic meaning on Salvatore Leone, since Claude has started working for the Yakuza. "Sayonara" (さよなら, normally さようなら) means "goodbye" in Japanese.
- When Maria says to Asuka "Oh.. Asuka, you've got a massager.", she is in fact referring to Asuka's vibrator.
- The Leone motorcade is somewhat reminiscent of the first car chase in the film Ronin. It is also modeled after real-life motorcades for important politicians and heads of state. The "secure package" of the VIP-carrying car will break from the convoy, while the escort vehicles will hold off the assailants.
- After this mission, the Leones will be armed with shotguns which can blow up a car in two shots, making Saint Mark's a very dangerous place from now on. If they player has any side missions left on Portland, it is strongly recommended they are done before this mission.
- Salvatore can be killed by his own men simply by making them shoot at your car, causing an explosion that also destroys the car in which Salvatore is escaping.
