Grand Theft Auto IV: Car FAQ by Carlo Ravelli (e-mail: charlieorange@hotmail.com) Version: 1.35.0 Date: 22-MAY-2008 Copyright 2008 Carlo Ravelli -----------------| Table of contents| -----------------| -Introduction -Legal -Version History & Updates -Credits -Cars -Checklist -How to use -Ordinary -Special -Emergency -Trucks -FAQ -Contact _____________________________________________________________________________ ------------| Introduction| ------------| This guide is all about the cars in Grand Theft Auto IV. It will tell you where you can find the car, what it looks like, how rare it is, how fast I think it is, and go on. I will try to make this guide as spoiler-free as possible, but if you can only get a car in a certain mission, for example, I will put a warning. If you can't find a certain car, just email me and create a clear title for it. And a handy tip: If you are looking for a car, and can't find it (there are quite a lot cars in GTA IV) just press Ctrl + F. This will bring up a console in which you type the name of the car. This will (hopefully) redirect you to the part in this guide that tells you all the things about that car. The first search result will be the checklist. If it ain't the checklist, you are either past the checklist, or the guide doesn't have that car (yet). Note that this is NOT a guide about bulletproof cars. This is just about the stats, where to find them, and what they look like. The checklist can be used to check all the cars you have found. So if you have gotten a 100% but still want to play, then try to find all the cars on the checklist! And to make sure you don't think it's copying and pasting, I hereby declare that I type EVERYTHING in this guide by myself. If not typed by myself, I will put a note, and credit. All cars will be checked personally or by a close contact to make sure there isn't false information. LAST IMPORTANT NOTE: I don't need any emails containing cars which are the real world counterparts of cars in the game, like the Patriot being a hummer. This may not be right and it will most likely be ignored. Also, please don't send me corrections on real world counterparts of cars, like I get alot of emails for the Futo being a 1985 Corolla, instead of the Jetta. You can hardly tell the difference! I appreciate every single help, but don't send me unnecessary things to get a credit. But things like missed cars, completely wrong information, and ideas for the FAQ are welcome ofcourse! Have fun reading! -----| Legal| -----| This guide may be not be reproduced under any circumstances except for personal, private use.

A: Send me the proper information via e-mail. If that information is also wrong, I will try to find it out myself. Ofcourse if it is right, I will correct the mistake, and you will get credit for it. Q: I know something about a car, where you haven't got any description. A: If you want to share it, be my guest! I love expansion, and you will get full credit for it. Q: I can't find , what should I do? A: If you have done what the description says and still can't find it, and if you REALLY need it, you can use a cheat if it is available for that car. If there isn't a cheat for that vehicle, read the "where to find" section again. Still can't find it? Send me an e-mail and I'll do my best for you. NOTE: If there isn't an explanation in the Where to find part of a vehicle I haven't found a mission where it appears in, or a static spawning point. Q: How many cars can I store? A: Amount of wheels, parted by 4, round down. You can store anything, as long as it's completely in the yellow space. Q: I really wanted to drive and when I first drove it, suddenly a whole bunch of them appeared! How is that possible? Simple Answer: its to speed up rendering speed. If every car you passed by was 100% different than the car behind it and infront of it dont you think it would slow the game down? they place alot of variations of the same vehicle your driving to prevent the game from slowing down due to loading. Complex Answer: Basically, the car models are too detailed for the RAGE engine to keep all of them cached and available to show up at any given time. So only a few cars are loaded into memory to spawn. But since the game has to have the car you're driving in cache, that puts it on a relatively short list of available cars to spawn, so all of a sudden everyone's got an Infernus.
