L.A. Noire vehicle achievement guide

Score the Auto Fanatic, Auto Collector, and Auto Enthusiast Achievements/Trophies with our complete video guide to L.A. Noire's cars

There's a lot of cars to collect in L.A. Noire if you want the Auto Fanatic Achivement/Trophy, 95 to be exact. Ironically, the Hidden Vehciles are actually the easiest ones to get since they're marked on your map.Tracking down every regular vehicle is the real challenge, especiallysince pretty much all of them are bigchrome plated boats with massive grills and whitewall tires. Fortunately we've trackeddown all of them and taken video so you'll know exactly what you're looking for.

Note that for a vehicle to count as being driven, all you have to do is get into the drivers seat then exit the car. Also note that having your partner drive a vehicle for you will not count towards the Achievement/Trophy so make sure you’re behind the wheel. Also remember that the game tends to default to certain vehicles when cutscenes happen and will quickly despawn vehicles if too many are on the screen at once, so don’t get too attached to any one ride.

Normal Vehicles

Normal vehicles can be found everywhere around the city, and as a police officer you can commandeer any of them. While the random spawning makes tracking down specific vehicles challenging, a little logic goes a long way; fire trucks will be found at fire stations and fires, ambulances at hospitals, and large trucks and panel vans will typically be found around construction sites and factories.

Cars have been organized according to what part of the map they most commonly appear in. The fastest way to hunt for cars is to sweep large parking lots for vehicles, drive far enough away so that the game will reset the cars and sweep again. Stopping pedestrian cars is bothersome as it takes a while to flag the vehicle down and boot the driver out. Also you’ll kind of feel like a jerk every time you do it. Some special non-hidden vehicles that are found only in specific areas will have special notations beside them indicating where to get them.

Tip: When hunting for specific models, memorize the placement ofits license plate. The yellow plates are highly visible which makes it easier for you to eyeball cars from a distance and determine if they're what you're looking for.
