Through the GTA III and IV eras, there are special vehicles which have unique properties, such as being bulletproof (BP), fireproof (FP), explosion-proof (EP), damage-proof (DP), pop-proof, and/or having unique paintjob.

Types

Ability Code Description
Bullet-proof BP Cars being bulletproof typically means the car is immune to gunshots. To test if a car is bulletproof, the player can shoot it with a firearm many times and if there is no smoke coming from the car, then the car is bulletproof.
Fire-proof FP This is the least valuable of all special properties available. A car that is bestowed with a fire proofing won't catch on fire from any flames surrounding the car (for example, from a Flame Thrower or Molotovs). However plain fire proofing cars are extremely rare, and isn't very helpful otherwise since it is rare for a vehicle to catch on fire.
Explosion-proof EP An explosion-proof car is immune to rockets, satchel charges, bombs, etc. However, just because a car is explosion-proof, does not mean the car cannot be destroyed via cheats, or by entering the car whilst on fire.
Damage-proof DP Damage-proofing is one of the best abilities that a car can have, but is extremely rare. The car can't recieve any exterior damage, which means the player can crash the car many times without being destroyed. This also applies to melee weapons which won't destroy the car either.
Pop-proof PP This means that the car's tires cannot be popped by spike strips or gunfire. However, none of the pop-proof vehicles can be saved.
Permanent Color Permanent Color This means that the car has a permanent color, if you go to the Pay N' Spray, the car will be fixed, but cannot be resprayed and not change into another color. However, none of the vehicles with permanent color can be saved.
Heavy Heavy Means that the car can push and ram other vehicles out of the way very easily, without the car losing speed or turning in different directions. However, the Heavy property will not shield against damage, and the car will receive double damage when hitting cars and other objects.
Unique Paintjob Color With Bold Print These are simply cars with a unique paintjob to it, that can't be obtained via Pay N' Spray or mod shop, and can only be found in the specific missions they are created for. Using a Pay N' Spray on any of these vehicles will remove the colour and it won't be obtainable again.
Unique Handling Unique Handling This means that the handling of the car can cut most corners and turns quickly than any other vehicles. However, none of the vehicles with unique handling can be saved.
Rare Vehicle With Bold Print Means that the vehicle cannot be found on the streets, but only appears in some missions (like the Phoenix in San Andreas). Rare vehicles can be saveable unlike unobtainable vehicles.
Unobtainable Unobtainable Means the car for whatever reason (exclusive for cutscenes, immovable, limited, etc...) cannot be saved, without losing the special property that it has acquired.

Destroying a special vehicle

Not all special vehicles are indestructible. There are many of ways to destroy a BP/FP/EP/DP car, this includes:

  • Flipping the car up-side down
  • Getting hit by a Rhino
  • Sinking the car
  • Using the Blow-up all cars cheat
  • Getting in the car while on fire
  • Taking it to a girlfriends' house and have coffee with her then the car will lose its special property and simply become normal.

Notes

Grand Theft Auto III

  • The Dull Gray FBI Car can be requested from the Emergency Vehicle Import/Export Crane after delivering all emergency vehicles. Or it can be obtained using of the Pay N' Spray If the FBI Car is in a pursuit color (Black). Or it can be obtain if when you encountered the FBI Car roadblocks/barricades.

Grand Theft Auto: Vice City

  • The Love Fist can be only obtained in missions in some of the PS2 versions, that's why it's a special vehicle. It can also be spawned by cheats. It is also spawn near the V-Rock stage, where you took jobs from the Love Fist in some of the PC versions.

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

  • It is worth noting that the BP, FP, EP and DP vehicles can be obtained with the vehicle of death cheat code. NOTE: Activate this cheat before entering the vehicle and deactivate it when in the vehicle for it to be indestructable without blowing up other vehicles when touching (unless of course it's a Rhino).
  • The Feltzer in the mission End of the Line still has the abilities even if the players soak it in the water. But if the players lose the Firetruck, where Frank Tenpenny is inside along with Sweet on the ladder, the vehicle will be normal again.
  • the FBI Truck is not obtainable unless you have a third party mod or you can obtain it from rockstar"s game file.
Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories
  • the Bickle '76 is a supercharged taxi in Grand Theft Auto Liberty City Stories and is very rare but obtainable, you are awarded it after you get 100 fares on a taxi mission. After you get 100 fares it will spawn outside of Mean Street Taxis.
  • the Avenger is a very rare motorcycle in Grand Theft Auto Liberty City Stories and is fire proof and bullet proof. It is obtainable but you only get it once and you have to to do 15 levels of Avenging Angels. It spawns once outside of your Portland Island safehouse.
