GTA 5 muscle car

The GTA 5 Duke O'Death, is a heavily armored muscle car that you can collect in the open world. Thanks to its weight and durability, this car is basically a battering ram on wheels once you can get it moving. In short it's a car you want. It's definitely one you'll want to get and add to your collection, even just for fun, but there are a few requirements you'll have to meet to be able to find the Duke O'Death. Here's what you need to do to unlock the GTA 5 Duke O'Death muscle car.

How to unlock the GTA 5 Duke O'Death

In order to get the GTA 5 Duke O'Death, you'll have to complete the first Tonya Strangers and Freaks mission titled 'Pulling Favors' with Franklin in GTA 5. You'll find this mission opposite his aunt's house, which you visit right at the start of the game. When you've ticked that off, a Random Event that spawns the Duke O'Death car will become available.

To get the Duke O'Death muscle car, you need to find it by heading to the café on the south road across Sandy Shores, just below the airstrip. Once you've done so, steal it and drive away to begin the Random Event properly. 

After stealing the Duke O'Death and driving off, you'll get chased by several articulated trucks in scenes reminiscent of the film Duel, as well as a number of gunmen in smaller vehicles.

Take them out or drive off to escape. Once you're safe, you'll have unlocked the Duke O'Death muscle car, which can be stored in your garage. It also respawns in the following two locations:

By the oil derricks west of the airstrip in Grand Senora Desert.

Inside a covered area in the southwest corner of the scrapyard in El Burro Heights.
