Beta Vehicles are vehicles that were not included in the game. There are types of beta vehicles, mainly: Deleted, Spawnable, Beta Names and Beta Models. Deleted Vehicles never appear in the final game while other beta vehicles are hidden in the games' files and can be obtain though can't be appear normally in the streets or spawn in the streets. Others have been renamed or remodeled to fit in the final version of the game. Also, the some cars look more like the real cars on which they are based on compared to the final versions which may have been removed or changed to avoid copyright issues.

Deleted Vehicles

These are vehicles that were deleted or cut before the games' release and cannot be spawned through third party trainers or cheat device.


Several unnamed cars never appeared in the final version.[1]


Brigham in GTA III.
Army Helicopter

The Army Helicopter was cut.


"Brigham" was a green car that was featured in beta Grand Theft Auto III. It was based on a 1977–1979 Chevrolet Caprice (despite the name implying a Cadillac (Fleetwood) Brougham); having the older bumper style compared to the Las Ventures police car from GTA SA.

Diablo Infernus

The Diablo Infernus was a variation of the Infernus which supposedly was to be driven by the Diablos. It may have been removed because it may have been to fancy for Portland.


The Luton, a box van, which the model's cargo compartment later became the basis for the Mule's. It was cut from GTA III.[2]


The Panto was another vehicle that was cut in GTA III. The car was planned to be a four-door sedan similar to Fiat 128.[2]

School Bus

The School Bus was meant to be appeared in GTA III but it was likely removed due to abscence of children in the game. It was used on one mission for Darkel where you to blow up a School Bus with children inside.[3]

GTA Vice City

Coastguard Maverick

Remnants of the Coastguard Maverick include an entry in the handling file (COASTMAV) and an entry in the text file (COASTMA). Nothing else is left of this vehicle and based on those two evidence, the vehicle is most likely a helicopter used by the Coastguard.

GTA San Andreas

Many previews publicated before the game's release told of about 425 vehicles included in-game.


The plane previously seen in Vice City and Liberty City was replaced by the AT-400. Untextured model and handling still exist.

Bloodring Banger (Oceanic)

Both Bloodring Bangers were planned to appear in GTA San Andreas. Only the "bloodra" (based on the Glendale) is featured, but the handling of the "bloodrb" (based on the Oceanic) remains.


Dash texture from dash.txd

Textures can be found in gta3.img. (dash.txd)


Another Dune. Textures can be found in gta3.img (dune.txd)

Beta FBI Car in GTA San Andreas.

The FBI Car was cut from GTA San Andreas. It was similar to the Las Venturas Police Car, but had a different grille. The model was featured in an unused cutscene.


A totally new vehicle. Despite its name, it does not seem to be a boat. It appears to be a train.


Another new vehicle. Nothing is known about it but its handling, which is very similar to the Caddy's, implying this was meant to be a second golf kart.


A cut weapon in GTA: San Andreas but also a vehicle. It was cut during the development of the game and was planned to be introduced in the mission Madd Dogg's Rhymes. The HUD icon is the only remain of the skateboard.


The famous boat from Vice City was meant to come back in San Andreas. Apart from the handling, there is no leftover.

GTA Liberty City Stories


It was probably a customized Stallion or a Shelby GT500.

Cyclone GT

A fast car which was cut during development. Nothing is known about it.


Appears in handling file as possibly leftover of GTA VC engine.


It was probably a car used during the mission L.C. Confidential.


According to text file, Toyota Supra was going to appear, possibly refering to the Jester.

Lancer MF1

A fast expensive car based on McLaren F1 LM.


It was a small car based on Austin Mini.


Japanese car based on Nissan Skyline GT-R.


According to text file, Subaru Impreza WRX was going to appear, possibly refering to the Sultan.

GTA Vice City Stories


A new boat which was cut. It was still listed in the official game guide, but the its picture was accidentally replaced with Speeder's, so nothing is known about this boat.

Coastguard Maverick

The same remnants of the Coastguard Maverick from GTA Vice City appears here. They are most likely leftovers from GTA Vice City.


A comeback four-door sedan in GTA III and LCS, but it was cut probably for being too modern for the 1980's

Unnamed bike

An unnamed motorcycle (possibly a different Streetfighter or PCJ-600) was cut.



The Andromada plane from San Andreas was cut in the early development of GTA IV. Only the handling remains.


According to audio files, the Buffalo was a cut car until The Ballad of Gay Tony.


According to some hidden audio files, the golf cart was already planned to be available in GTA IV. Its appearance was also delayed until The Ballad of Gay Tony.


The Coach was cut during the development of GTA IV. Its imagination can be seen in the Higgins Helitours commercial.


This second plane was also cut from GTA IV, the handling can still be found in the game files.

NOOSE Boxville

The NOOSE variant of the Boxville can be seen in the background of an early GTA IV screenshot.


The Fighter was a plane meant to make an appearance in Grand Theft Auto IV but was removed for unknown reasons. The only notable remnant left in the game is its handling line. Judging by it's name, it was likely going to be a fighter jet, similar to the Hydra from San Andreas.


This car from GTA San Andreas could appear in Liberty City. It has possibly become the Faction, as they are both based on G-body Buicks. Only few audio files still exist.


The Previon from GTA San Andreas was meant to return in Grand Theft Auto IV, but only some audio files remained. It could've served as the basis of the Hakumai's design as both cars are based on similarly styled Hondas.

Angel - Daemon - Diabolus - Hexer - Lycan - Nightblade - Revenant - Wolfsbane

Eight chopper motorbikes, finally made available in The Lost and Damned, already had their model and texture in GTA IV. They can be used ingame like normal bikes with help of modifications.

GTA The Lost and Damned


A different Admiral (internally named "admiral2") was meant to be featured in GTA: The Lost and Damned. It is believed that this was going to be the old Admiral (based on a Mercedes). Very few files still exist.


The same like above, however there is no clue about differences with basic truck.


The Rhino tank was cut from the final version, although some files still exist.

GTA The Ballad of Gay Tony


A small new car. Its only leftover is the handling. Its name was propably devired from three-wheeled car Reliant Robin.


A large truck similar to the Noose Enforcer and Securicar. It's model and texture are in the game's files, and can be put into the game via mods. It is obtainable on Xbox 360 consoles through the use of mods or a modified save game file. No known method for obtaining the Brickade has been found yet for PS3.
