GTA IV Special Vehicle Guide

 


Special Vehicle Properties Legend:

BP = Bullet Proof - The Special Vehicle can't be destroyed by Bullets including the Tires, but you can still be shot through the Windows.

DP = Damage Proof - The Special Vehicle can't be destroyed from Collisions, but will still deform.

EP = Explosion Proof - The Special Vehicle can't be destroyed from Explosives.

FP = Fire Proof - The Special Vehicle can't be destroyed with Fire, but the Rubber of the Tires can still be burned off.

AP = All Proof - BP/DP/EP/FP = AP.

EC = Exclusive Color - The Special Vehicle has a Primary and Visible Secondary Color Combination that can't be duplicated with Pay and Spray or found in Traffic. Make note that Color 4 on some Vehicles is only Random if it's a Lustered Vehicle.

EC2 = Exclusive Color 2 - The Special Vehicle has a Special Invisible Secondary Color only viewable by Save Editors.

Lustered = Lustered - The Special Vehicle has another Color overlapping its Base Color and is only best seen in the Daylight with a lot of Sunshine. The term Lustered is only used on Vehicles that have Randomly chosen Lusters every time you start the Mission where the Lustered Special Vehicle appears in. Be very careful as some Lusters are not Special if the Vehicle is not EC.

Hybrid = Hybrid - The Special Vehicle has Features from the Civilian Version of the Vehicle along with Features from a Gang or another Civilian Version of the Vehicle at once. It has multiple Vehicle Modification Features which makes the Vehicle Special.

Unique = Unique - The Special Vehicle is Unique when it can only be obtained from a Story Mission or Side Mission, the Vehicle itself is Special as it's not possible to find it Parked or in Traffic. However, some Unique Vehicles in IV can be found in Traffic but only if you're driving one, which still makes them Unique.


Parking Spots:

Roman's Apartment - Maximum Capacity is 2, unlocked after The Cousins Bellic, the Safehouse gets lost after Roman's Sorrow, but even after Roman's Sorrow you can use this Parking Spot.
South Bohan - Maximum Capacity is 2, unlocked after The Cousins Bellic, though the actual Safehouse is unlocked after Roman's Sorrow.
Middle Park East - Maximum Capacity is 2, unlocked after The Cousins Bellic, though the actual Safehouse is unlocked after Hostile Negotiation, and the actual Island after Blow Your Cover.
Playboy X's Penthouse - Maximum Capacity is 2, unlocked after The Cousins Bellic, though the actual Safehouse is unlocked after killing Playboy X during The Holland Play, and the actual Island after Blow Your Cover.
Alderney Safehouse - Maximum Capacity is 2, unlocked after The Cousins Bellic, though the actual Safehouse is unlocked after Smackdown and A Long Way to Fall, and the actual Island after Three Leaf Clover.

Every GTA IV Save can have a Maximum of 10 Vehicles.

1.0. Unique/EC Black Roman's Taxi
Mission: The Cousins Bellic (Fail + Suicide)
How to Obtain: Welcome to Broker and Dukes, Liberty City HD Era! The first Special Vehicle in GTA IV is the first Vehicle that you'll be driving in the Game and to obtain this Unique/EC Black Roman's Taxi, you will unfortunately need to commit Suicide and also fail the Mission. If you don't want a +1 Wasted in the Stats, then you can also obtain the other Unique/EC Black and Dark Grey Roman's Taxi later on. This is the Vehicle you start the Game out with and are instructed to drive Roman and this Vehicle to the Hove Beach Safehouse. Passing the Mission will make it vanish and failing the Mission in any other way besides killing Niko will also make it vanish. So you will need to waste Niko to obtain this Unique/EC Black Roman's Taxi. The second EC Roman's Taxi is the same Body Color, but the Front Siding of the Hood is always a different Dark Grey Color. This specific Unique/EC Roman's Taxi is Solid Black and identical in Color to the rest of the Vehicle. Respraying a Roman's Taxi at Pay and Spray will change it to a Red, Silver or Black Color, but the Black, but the Black Color from Pay and Spray will have a Brown Siding, which makes both Roman's Taxis from Missions EC. To obtain this Unique/EC Black Roman's Taxi, simply drive it to a Parking Space and leave it there. Now, kill Niko by any means necessary and the Mission will start over. However, when you check back on the Vehicle, you will see it's still there. On the PS3 Version, there might be a Pedestrian driving the Unique/EC Black Roman's Taxi and trying to drive it out of the Parking Spot, if that happens, ram into the Roman's Taxi and get the Pedestrian out, then park the Roman's Taxi in the Parking Spot properly. On PC this does not happen. It's simple to get, but like already mentioned, if you don't want a +1 Wasted in your Stats you can easily obtain the other, but not identical, Unique/EC Roman's Taxi later on.

1.1. EC Black Esperanto
Mission: Free Roam between the Missions The Cousins Bellic and Roman's Sorrow
How to Obtain: Once you pass The Cousins Bellic, you will be instructed to return to Roman at his Cab Depot for the next Story Mission. This EC Black Esperanto is always parked inside the Cab Depot and it has a Flat Black Color which can't be found anywhere else in the Game. If you want it, just take it and drive it to a Parking Spot. It's really easy. You don't even need to start the Roman Mission at the Cab Depot to get it. Make note that it can only be obtained until the Mission Roman's Sorrow, as during that Mission Roman's Cab Depot will be burned down along with the Hove Beach Safehouse, which would make this EC Black Esperanto unobtainable from that point forward on, thus it's a true Special Vehicle. So if you want to get it, get it before Roman's Sorrow.

1.2. EC Beige Willard with EC Beige Door Interior (1 of 2)
Mission: It's Your Call (Fail)
How to Obtain: This is the Vehicle in which the Albanian Loan Sharks Dardan and Bledar drive during the Mission. This one from It's Your Call requires a Mission Failure, but there will be another EC Beige Willard later on which requires a Mission Pass. Both of these Beige Willards also have EC Beige Door Interiors which are two rectangles on the Door of the inside, which is also unique. To obtain it, start the Mission It's Your Call and get in the Roman's Taxi with Roman. Drive to Schottler like instructed and wait for the EC Beige Willard to show up while also accepting Roman's Call during the waiting. When the EC Beige Willard with EC Beige Door Interior shows up, don't call Roman, instead get out of the Roman's Taxi and attack the Albanian Loan Sharks. When they're attacked, they will run away and the Mission will fail. Now, simply get in the EC Beige Willard with EC Beige Door Interior after the Mission has failed. At first it will be unjackable, but after the Mission Failure you will be able to get in it and drive it. Simply park it in a Parking Spot and have it stored there.

1.3. Unique/EC Black and Dark Grey Roman's Taxi
Mission: It's Your Call (Pass), can also be obtained during Roman's Missions and Roman's Taxi Driver Side Missions before Roman's Sorrow (all Pass)
How to Obtain: This is the Unique/EC Black and Dark Grey Roman's Taxi that you will be usually driving during the first few Roman Missions in the Game. It can be obtained during It's Your Call, Three's a Crowd, Bleed Out, Easy Fare, Jamaican Heat, Uncle Vlad, Roman's Sorrow and Roman's Taxi Driver Side Missions. However, there really isn't any reason to wait, so why not keep it from the Mission It's Your Call right after passing it. The reason why this Special Vehicle is only mentioned once, while it has a lot of appearances, is because all of its appearances are identical in the Method of obtaining it and because it would be redundant to name all of its appearances. There was a Unique/EC Black Roman's Taxi in the first Mission of the Game, but it required a Suicide, so if you don't want to get a +1 Wasted in your Stats, you could just get the Unique/EC Black and Dark Grey Roman's Taxi without any Suicides or Mission Failures. To get the one from It's Your Call, simply pass the Mission and once it's passed, you will still be driving the Unique/EC Roman's Taxi. Just park it in a Parking Spot and it's stored. Make note that it truly is a Unique Vehicle in IV, because during Roman's Sorrow, Roman's Cab Depot will be burned down which will make this Unique/EC Roman's Taxi unobtainable from that point forward on. So if you want to get the Unique/EC Black and Dark Grey Roman's Taxi, get it before Roman's Sorrow.

1.4. Lustered/EC2 Silver Merit
Mission: First Date (Pass)
How to Obtain: This is Michelle's (Karen's) Vehicle used during First Date and you're given it at the start of the Mission. It's a Silver Merit with a Luster on it. Make note that the Luster will be rerolled at the Checkpoint at the start of the Mission, just like with all other Lustered Vehicles in IV. It also has a EC2 Black Color which is Invisible but still Unique, and can only be seen on a Save Editor. There are lots of possible Lusters for this Merit, the best looking ones are the Red Lusters as they're Special and nice looking. If you get a Striking Blue Luster on it, it would only be a EC2 Merit, because it would be identical to the Traffic Silver Merit, only making it Special for its EC2, which makes it useless. So if your Luster is Striking Blue, it would make the Merit the least Special, so avoid that one. All other Lusters are fully Special though. To obtain it, pass the Mission. So just take Michelle/Karen to the Bowling Place at Hove Beach, play Bowling and drive her back at Rotterdam Hill. When you've passed First Date, drive the Lustered/EC2 Silver Merit to a Parking Spot and have it stored there.

1.5. EC Beige Willard with EC Beige Door Interior (2 of 2)
Mission: Bleed Out (Pass)
How to Obtain: Just like the first EC Beige Willard with EC Beige Door Interior in the Guide, the Albanian Loan Sharks will be driving it. This time you can get the EC Willard with EC Door Interior with a Mission Pass, the first one required a Mission Failure, so I suggest getting this second one. You can actually obtain this EC Willard along with the Unique/EC Roman's Taxi from the same Mission. Both of these Willards have a unique EC Beige Door Interior, which are two big rectangles on the inside of the Door. Start the Mission Bleed Out with the Phone Call from Roman and drive to the Basketball Court area. Beat up or kill Bledar and Kalem, then get into the Unique/EC Black and Dark Grey Roman's Taxi nearby with Roman. Now, follow Dardan who will be driving the EC Beige Willard. Simply follow him until he comes to a stop and then kill Dardan. After that, go back down and get in the EC Beige Willard. What you'll need to do is double drive the EC Beige Willard and the Roman's Taxi back to Roman's Cab Depot. That means, drive the EC Willard a bit up the Road but not too far from the Roman's Taxi, then get out and walk to the Unique Roman's Taxi, get in the Roman's Taxi and drive it a bit ahead of the EC Willard but not too far from it, then get out of it and get in the EC Willard. Repeat the process until you're at Roman's Cab Depot. The reason you need to do this is because if Niko is too far away from the Roman's Taxi, the Mission will automatically fail for abandoning Roman. Double drive the two Vehicles to the Cab Depot and when you get there, drive the Roman's Taxi into the Yellow Marker to pass the Mission, but make sure the EC Willard is parked nearby but not too near the Marker, or else it might vanish. Park it like shown in the Video and then pass the Mission with the Roman's Taxi. After the Mission is passed, get in the EC Willard and have it stored at the Parking Spot. Easy stuff. Also, you can get both the Unique/EC Roman's Taxi and EC Beige Willard with EC Beige Door Interior at the same time with passing the Mission. To do this, double drive both Vehicles to the Parking Spot after the Mission is passed and have both of them stored at the Parking Spot.

1.6. Unique Laundromat (1 of 2)
Mission: Hung Out to Dry (Fail)
How to Obtain: This Unique Laundromat a nice Unique Vehicle in IV and can only be obtained from two Story Missions in the Game. It's looks like a Burrito but it's a completely different Vehicle and says Laundromat when you enter it. It always has a Livery saying Monthly Cycle on its Sides. This first one requires a Failure, I suggest getting the second one later on in the Game as that one can be obtained with a Mission Pass. To get this one however, start the Mission Hung Out to Dry and go around and behing the Laundry Place like shown in the Video. You will see the Unique Laundromat parked there. All you need to do is try to jack the Unique Laundromat, doing so will fail the Mission because the Shop Keeper was spooked and escaped out the front. Easily get in the Unique Laundromat, drive it to a Parking Spot and have it saved there.

1.7. EC/Lustered White and Dark Grey Blista Compact (1 of 2)
Mission: Clean Getaway (Fail)
How to Obtain: This EC/Lustered Blista Compact has a Special White Body Color with a Dark Grey Siding on it and it also has a nice Luster sometimes. The Luster is always Special on it because this is a fully EC Vehicle. There are two of them during the Vlad Missions, I suggest getting the second one as this first one requires you to fail the Mission. To get this first one, start the Mission Clean Getaway and use the Subway as instructed. Now, go down and get in the EC/Lustered White and Dark Grey Blista Compact. Get in it and drive away. What you want to do now is find a Rancher on the Streets, get in the Rancher once you find it and then flip the EC/Lustered Blista Compact with the Rancher so the Blista Compact is on its Roof. Do exactly like shown in the Video. When the Blista Compact is upside down, the Mission will fail, now easily tip it back rightside up using the Rancher. Once you've done that, get in the EC/Lustered White and Dark Grey Blista Compact and have it stored at a Safehouse Parking Spot.

1.8. EC/Lustered White and Dark Grey Blista Compact (2 of 2)
Mission: Ivan the Not So Terrible (Pass)
How to Obtain: You can actually obtain both the EC/Lustered Blista Compact and the EC/Lustered Ruiner with EC Random Rims from Clean Getaway with passing the Mission. I will explain the Method to get both of them. The Ruiner is very complex when it comes to knowing what is Special on it, so look at 1.9 to know exactly how to detect its Special Properties. Start the Mission Ivan the Not So Terrible and right in front of you the EC/Lustered White and Dark Grey Blista Compact will be provided for you. Drive it to the Parking Spot nearby and have it stored there. This is the same EC/Lustered Blista Compact used in the previous Mission. Once you've stored the EC/Lustered Blista Compact, get in a random Vehicle and drive to Roman's Cab Depot. Now, follow Ivan who will be driving the EC/Lustered Black and Yellow Ruiner with EC Random Rims. Follow him until he comes to the Construction Site, Ivan will get out, now simply get in the EC/Lustered Black and Yellow Ruiner and move it slightly like shown in the Video, if you don't do that the Ruiner might vanish. Now, get on the Rooftops and chase Ivan. Eventually, you will be asked to either spare or kill Ivan, you can do both to pass the Mission, but I suggest sparing him so he'll appear as a Random Character later on. Once the Mission is passed, get down on the Road using the Ladder nearby and run to the EC/Lustered Ruiner with EC Random Rims. If it has vanished you'll need to redo this. If it's still there, drive it to a Parking Spot and have it stored there.

1.9. EC/Lustered Black and Yellow Ruiner with EC White or Gold Rims
Mission: Ivan the Not So Terrible (Pass)
How to Obtain: Check 1.8. to know how to obtain both the EC/Lustered White and Dark Grey Blista Compact and the EC/Lustered Black and Yellow Ruiner with EC Random Rims with passing the Mission Clean Getaway. This entry will only be an explanation how to detect the Ruiner's Special Coloring as it's a bit more complex to explain, and you have to be very, very careful with it. This Ruiner has a Set Special EC Black and Yellow Color, but the Yellow Stripe makes it EC as the Black Body Color is found in the Streets. This Ruiner from Ivan has a random Luster, but because Ruiners have applied Four Colors on them, they will also have Random Fourth Colors. The Fourth Color are the Rims, which can only be White (Very White) or Gold (Race Yellow Solid). If you get a Ruiner with White Rims, it's fully EC/Lustered with EC Rims, thus you have nothing to worry about. However, if you want a Ruiner with EC Yellow Rims, the same Yellow-Colored Rims won't be EC conditionally. The Traffic Ruiner with Black Body Color, which has a different Race Yellow Stripe compared to the EC Ruiner, has Gold Rims and a Med.Flax Luster. If you get a Ruiner with Gold Rims and a Med.Flax Luster, which is a Light Brownish Color, then you'd only have a EC Ruiner. The Luster won't be Special and the Rims won't be Special. The only thing Special with that specific Ruiner compared to the Traffic Black Ruiner is the Yellow Stripe, thus only being EC. However, if you really want Gold Rims, you can obtain a Ruiner with a Yellow Luster and EC Gold Rims. If the Ruiner from Ivan gets a Yellow Luster and Gold Rims, then you'll have a EC/Lustered Ruiner with EC Gold Rims, which is probably the best looking one, due to the Yellow Luster (Taxi Yellow). Theoretically, compared to the Traffic Black Ruiner, it would only have a Special Stripe and Luster, but I call the Gold Rims EC when it has a Yellow Luster because the Luster and Ruiner's Rims (Color 4) come in Random Set Combinations. The Ruiner can also have an Open or Closed Roof by the way.

2.0. EC Light Blue Marbelle
Mission: Uncle Vlad (Pass)
How to Obtain: This is Vlad's Vehicle which is used in the Mission Uncle Vlad. Its Body Color is not Special, but the Set Luster Color makes the Light Blue Body Color look different compared to the Traffic Light Blue Marbelle, thus making Vlad's Marbelle different to the Traffic Light Blue Marbelle, thus being EC and Special. The EC Light Blue Marbelle can be obtained with a Mission Pass easily on all Platforms. To do so it, start the Mission Uncle Vlad and drive with Roman to Comrades to confront Vlad. Kill the two Russian Goons and get out using the Front Door. Get in the Unique/EC Black and Dark Grey Roman's Taxi and follow Vlad who will be driving this EC Light Blue Marbelle. Follow him until he gets to the Location where he crashes. Get out of the Roman's Taxi and get inside the EC Marbelle. Now, drive towards Vlad while you're sitting in his EC Marbelle and use Drive-By to kill Vlad. This won't initiate the Execution, now simply skip the Cutscene and you will be sitting in this EC Light Blue Marbelle. Drive it back to a Parking Spot to store it.

2.1. EC/Lustered Silver and Black DF8-90 (1 of 4)
Mission: Crime and Punishment (Pass)
How to Obtain: You can obtain this EC/Lustered Silver and Black DF8-90 and the Lustered Black Speedo at the same time with passing the Mission. This EC/Lustered DF8-90 appears in the majority of the Faustin Missions and they're all pretty easy to get. This DF8-90 has a Special EC Silver Body Color with a Normal Black Roof and has a special Luster on the entire Vehicle, but the Luster is best seen on the Black Roof. The Speedo is fully Black in Body Color and sometimes has a special Luster. The only Luster that the Speedo can have, but won't be Special, is a Black Poly Luster, which is invisible and useless anyways. If you want to get the Lustered Black Speedo, get one with a Colored Visible Luster that looks nice, then it'll always be Special. Start the Mission Crime and Punishment and then walk left, you'll see the EC/Lustered Silver and Black DF8-90 on Faustin's Driveway. Simply take it to a Parking Spot and have it stored there. When you've done that, find a Police Patrol or a Police Cruiser to continue with the Mission. Lose the Wanted Level if you have one. Now, drive to one of the Lustered Black Speedo Vans which don't have the TVs. Make it stop and then approach the Driver's Window. Kill the Driver after the Cutscene and then simply drive the Lustered Black Speedo to the Parking Spot. Once you've both Vehicles stored there, drive to the Lustered Black Speedo which has the TVs on the back of the Van and simply take it. Then, drive it to Faustin's Garage to pass the Mission. Once the Mission is passed, check on the EC/Lustered Silver and Black DF8-90 and the Lustered Black Speedo at your Parking Spot. By the way, if you don't kill the Driver, something weird might happen which is shown in the Video. If you don't kill him, you will randomly be teleported out of the Speedo, lose Health and the Lustered Speedo will drive away. Thus always remember to kill the Driver.

2.2. Lustered Black Speedo
Mission: Crime and Punishment (Pass)
How to Obtain: Check 2.1. to know how to obtain both the EC/Lustered Silver and Black DF8-90 and Lustered Black Speedo with passing the Mission Crime and Punishment. This Speedo is fully Black and sometimes has a Special Luster on it. All three Speedos in the Mission are Lustered Black and will have a different Luster and different Livery, but like already explained, get the one without the TVs if you want to get it with passing the Mission. The only Luster that wouldn't make this Speedo Special is a Black Poly Luster, which is basically invisible with the Black Body Color anyways. If you get a Colored Luster on the Speedo that looks nice and is visible, then it's for sure Special. Also, if you get the ones with the TVs in the back and store it at a Parking Spot, the TVs will vanish.

So, go to the Sex Shop with Dimitri, then do the Aiming Tutorial with Joseph there and then go to the Gun Shop to buy a Micro SMG. Once you've done that, drop Dimitri off at Faustin's Mansion. After you've passed the Mission, check on the EC/Lustered DF8-90 at your Parking Spot. Make note that all Lusters are Special on it, because the Vehicle itself is EC.

2.5. EC/Lustered Dark Red Flatbed
Mission: Rigged to Blow (Fail)
How to Obtain: One of the newest Discoveries in IV Special Vehicles, the EC/Lustered Dark Red Flatbed. Make note that the Lusters can't really be seen on the EC Dark Red Body Color, but it still has Random Lusters as proven from Save Editor. It will always spawn in a Metal Container Variant. Also, the Bomb Indicator on the back will disappear once the Mission is failed, thus you can't obtain it with the Bomb Indicator. To obtain it is quite simple, start the Mission Rigged to Blow and drive to the EC/Lustered Dark Red Flatbed as instructed. Get in it and then watch or fail the Cutscene. Now, drive it a bit ahead onto the Street in front of you and park it there. Get out of the Flatbed and get in a Random Traffic Vehicle. Now, drive away from the Flatbed but make sure to keep the Camera on it, because if you don't then the Flatbed might disappear. While you drive away, the Mission will be failed, and one it's failed drive back and get in the EC/Lustered Flatbed and store it at a Parking Spot. Even if it's a big rig, you'll still be able to save it in the Parking Spots at Roman's Apartment and the South Bohan Safehouse.

2.6. EC/Lustered Silver and Black DF8-90 (4 of 4)
Mission: Rigged to Blow (Pass)
How to Obtain: This is your last chance to obtain the EC/Lustered DF8-90. Start the Mission Rigged to Blow, walk left and the EC/Lustered Silver and Black DF8-90 will be right there at Faustin's Driveway. Get in it and have it stored at your Parking Spot. Once it's stored, simply pass the Mission. So, go to the EC/Lustered Flatbed with Explosives in it and very carefully drive it to Bohan. Activate the Car Bomb and run away from the Explosion. Once the Mission is passed, check on your EC/Lustered DF8-90 at your Parking Spot. All Lusters that can spawn on it are Special because the Vehicle is Special. The Lusters are best seen on the Roof of the DF8-90.

2.7. EC Black Schafter
Mission: The Master and the Molotov (Pass)
How to Obtain: This Vehicle is not useless at all compared to the other Schafters. This EC Black Schafter also has a EC Silver Luster on it which can't be found in Traffic. It's a Civilian Schafter with Black Body Color, which makes it EC Black, because the Black Body Color can only be found on Russian Schafters. It also has a Unique Fourth Color which isn't the usual Black, eventhough the Schafter is a Three-Color Vehicle. So it's basically also EC4. To obtain this EC Black Schafter, start the Mission The Master and the Molotov and go to Perestroika. You will see Mikhail Faustin arriving in his EC Black Schafter with EC Silver Luster, simply take it after the Cutscene and drive it to a Parking Spot. Once you've stored the EC Black Schafter at the Parking Spot, go back to Perestroika and simply kill Faustin to pass the Mission. After the Mission is passed, check the EC Black Schafter at your Parking Spot. Simple.

2.8. EC/Lustered Silver Oracle
Mission: Easy as Can Be (Fail)
How to Obtain: This is the Oracle that Brucie wants you to collect for him, it's a EC Silver Oracle with a Special Luster on it. It also requires you to fail the Mission. All Lusters that can spawn on this EC/Lustered Oracle are Special, because the Vehicle is EC Body Colored. To obtain it, simply start Easy as Can Be and go to the Location where the EC/Lustered Silver Oracle is and then take it to the Parking Spot. Once it's parked there, jack a random Vehicle and drive away from it. The Mission will fail for abandoning the EC/Lustered Silver Oracle and when you return to the Parking Spot, the EC/Lustered Silver Oracle will still be there. It's as easy as it can be.

2.9. EC/Lustered Black Schafter with EC Black Rims (1 of 2)
Mission: Easy as Can Be (Pass)
How to Obtain: This will be an explanation on how to obtain the EC/Lustered Black Schafter with EC Black Rims, Lustered/EC2 Black Sultan and Lustered Black NRG 900 from Easy as Can Be, all with a Mission Pass. It's very difficult to obtain all three Vehicles at the same time and pass the Mission, and very hard to have all three Special at the same time, as sometimes the Lusters won't be Special so you'd just obtain a Non-Special Vehicle accidently after all this trouble. Check 3.0. and 3.1. for the Special Lusters and how to identify them on the Sultan and NRG 900 so you won't accidently obtain a useless Vehicle. In this entry I will explain how to obtain them. For the EC/Lustered Black Schafter with EC Black Rims, all Lusters that spawn on it are Special, but if you want my advice, get a Luster that is visible and looks nice for you for the Schafter. Do the same for the Sultan and NRG 900, though for the NRG 900 you need to be very careful as some Lusters on it can trick you and make you think they're Special, while they're not. To obtain all three Lustered Black Vehicles with Pass, start the Mission Easy as Can Be, go to the Oracle and get in it. After the Cutscene, behind you, there will be the EC/Lustered Black Schafter with EC Black Rims, and to the right of you, there will be one of two Lustered/EC2 Black Sultans. Kill the Sultan occupants as another Sultan will spawn which will be the same. To get the NRG 900 to spawn, drive straight and turn left while you get to the wall, then onto the road, like in the Videos. Then the Lustered Black NRG 900 will spawn. Ram into the NRG 900 and kill the Driver of it. You will see another Lustered/EC2 Sultan near the Lustered Black NRG 900. Now, get out of the Oracle and quickly get to the NRG 900 and get in it, while the Sultan and Schafter will be there near you being driven by enemies. Drive the NRG 900 to the Alleyway as you see in the Video, park it there and get to the Oracle. Drive the Oracle around like you see in the Video to the Pedestrian Pathway on the Bridge, making sure that the three Vehicles are all there. Park it there, then get in the NRG 900 and drive it in front of the Oracle. Make sure that you don't abandon the Oracle by going away from it during this whole process as you'll fail the Mission. Also, make sure that all your Vehicles have a nice Luster and that all the Lusters are Special. If they have a bad or non-Special Luster, reload and do the Mission again. There's a very slim chance that all three Vehicles will have a nice and Special Luster, and even a slimer chance that you'll do this process without failing, as it's very difficult to do this quest. Anyways, at this stage when you've parked the NRG 900 like you see in the Video, the Schafter and Sultan will be on the Road on the Bridge. So, get in the Oracle and push the NRG 900 using the Oracle through the Pedestrian Pathway on the Bridge, the Sultan and Schafter will follow you nicely being on the Road. When you're nearly done with pushing the NRG 900 as the Pathway ends, kill the occupants of the Schafter and Sultan and make sure that you don't get a Wanted Level, and make sure that the Vehicles haven't despawned. Now what you'll need to do it quadruple-drive the Oracle, NRG 900, Sultan and Schafter to the South Bohan Safehouse Parking Spot. That means you'll have to push and drive each Vehicle until you get to the Parking Spot, making sure that none of them vanish, that you don't get a Wanted Level at the Pay Booth and making sure that none of them get destroyed. Pay the Pay Booth every time you go by it so you don't get the Cops' Attention. For the NRG 900 you can skip paying the Pay Booth by driving between these Pillars. Anyways, when you've finally quadruple driven them successfully, which is easier said than done, park two of the three Lustered Vehicles at the Parking Spot. Also, make sure that all Dead Bodies are out of the Vehicles, because if there's a Dead Person in the Vehicles, the Vehicle won't be saved at the Parking Spot. When you've done that, push or double drive the third Lustered Black Vehicle with the Oracle all the way to Roman's Apartment, to save the third Lustered Black Vehicle there. Again, make sure not to go too far away from the Oracle or the Mission will be failed. When you've done that successfully and you're at Roman's Apartment, save the third Lustered Vehicle there and then get in the Oracle. Deliver the Oracle to Brucie's and you'll pass the Mission. Now, check that all three Lustered Black Vehicles are there, alive and haven't despawned. If you've done this, huge congratulations, as this is one of the hardest tasks in IV! If you want my advice, get one at a time for each Save that you do, so you'll only have to push one Vehicle to the South Bohan Parking Spot for each Save, and so you won't need to reload so often to get all three Vehicles to have a nice and Special Luster.

3.0. Lustered/EC2 Black Sultan
Mission: Easy as Can Be (Pass)
How to Obtain: Check 2.9. to know how to get the EC/Lustered Black Schafter with EC Black Rims, Lustered/EC2 Black Sultan and Lustered Black NRG 900 at the same time or one at a time from the Mission Easy as Can Be with passing it. In this entry, I will explain how to distinguish the Special Lusters on the Lustered/EC2 Sultan. This is a EC2 Vehicle, meaning it has a Special Invisible Color Combination. Black Body Color can be found in Traffic, but the Black Invisible Secondary Color can also be found in Traffic, but both together can't be found. So it's EC2 in terms of the Color Combination. The only Luster which makes this Vehicle not really Special is the Black Poly Luster, which makes the Vehicle look like it doesn't have any Luster on it. In short words, just get a Luster which looks good, which is Colored and which doesn't make the Sultan look like it doesn't have any Lusters. If you get a Sultan with the Black Poly Luster, then it would only be a EC2 Sultan, because compared to one Sultan from Traffic, the only Special thing on it would be the Invisible Secondary Color, which makes the Sultan quite useless. Also make note that very often, more times than not, the Luster will be Black Poly, thus you'll need to reload a lot of times. Like already said, any Colored Luster that you get on it, makes it Special.

3.1. Lustered Black NRG 900
Mission: Easy as Can Be (Pass)
How to Obtain: Check 2.9. to know how to get the EC/Lustered Black Schafter with EC Black Rims, Lustered/EC2 Black Sultan and Lustered Black NRG 900 at the same time or one at a time from the Mission Easy as Can Be with passing it. In this entry, I will explain how to distinguish the Special Lusters on the Lustered NRG 900. Be very, very careful about this NRG 900 as it can sometimes trick you. There are two Lusters which makes this NRG 900 useless if you obtained it with them. One if the Formula Red Luster, which is a Red Color obviously. The second is the Vermillion Solid Luster, which looks Purple/Pink. Actually, in the first Video for these Vehicles, he shows a non-Special NRG 900 being obtained, which is the one with the Vermillion Solid Luster. So avoid these two Luster Colors. Try to get the Green, Blue or Yellow Lusters that spawn on the NRG 900 which are for sure Special. Also, it can spawn in the F Variant and in the RR Variant.

3.2. EC Bright Yellow Comet
Mission: No. 1 (Pass)
How to Obtain: You can get the EC Bright Yellow Comet and EC/Lustered Light Blue SuperGT with passing the Mission, also you can get the EC Bright Yellow Comet with the Lustered/EC2 Yellow Turismo. It's also possible to get all three at the same time. This Comet has a special EC Bright Yellow Color which is much brighter than the Traffic Yellow Comets, it also has a Set Luster which is not Random. The SuperGT has a nice EC Light Blue Color on it and it's also Lustered. Unfortunately, the EC/Lustered SuperGT seems to be unobtainable on the PS3 Version with passing the Mission as it seems to always disappear even when failing the Mission. The SuperGT and Turismo can only be obtained with a Mission Failure on PS3. For the Turismo Information, check out 3.4. to know more, as it's barelly a Special Vehicle at all. To obtain these Vehicles, start the Mission No. 1 and go to the EC Bright Yellow Comet Location with Brucie. Now, go to the Race Starting Location, start the Race and get into First Place. When you get into 1st Place, don't drive too quickly or else the EC/Lustered SuperGT and Lustered/EC2 Turismo might vanish. Don't drive too quickly when you get to Huntington Street at the Cerveza Heights Area, unless they start getting really close to you, then speed up a bit. When you get to Montauk Avenue then it'll be a simple straight drive to the Finish Line. Get into the Finish Checkpoint when a Vehicle is right behind you and make sure to finish in 1st Place. Having a Vehicle be very close to you increases the chance of the EC/Lustered Light Blue SuperGT and Lustered/EC2 Yellow Turismo to not vanish. Now, drive back and see if the SuperGT and Turismo are still there. If they're not there, reload and try again. At this point, use the EC Comet to push the EC/Lustered SuperGT and/or Lustered/EC2 Turismo to your Broker Parking Spot and have them stored there. If you're pushing both of them, make sure that the Luster on the Turismo is Special and won't make the Vehicle just EC2, push both of them to the Parking Spot simultaneously, making sure that you keep the Camera on both of them during the Pushing procedure. Once you push them there and once it's on the Parking Spot, drive Brucie back to his Place. The Mission will be passed and you will still be driving the EC Bright Yellow Comet, now drive back to the Broker Parking Spot and check on the EC/Lustered SuperGT and/or Lustered/EC2 Turismo, also store the EC Bright Yellow Comet at the Parking Spot to obtain them. If you're only aiming for the EC Bright Yellow Comet, pass the Mission like normal and store it at a Parking Spot.

3.3. EC/Lustered Light Blue SuperGT
Mission: No. 1 (Pass on PC and Xbox 360, Fail on PS3)
How to Obtain: Check 3.2. to know how to get both the EC Bright Yellow Comet, EC/Lustered Light Blue SuperGT, and Lustered/EC2 Yellow Turismo with passing the Mission No. 1, or just how to get the EC/Lustered Light Blue SuperGT alone. This SuperGT has a nice EC Light Blue Color and it also has a Random Luster on it. The Luster will always be Special because the SuperGT is EC. This Special Vehicle is only obtainable using a Mission Failure on PS3, since it always vanished if you try to obtain it with Pass. This will be an Explanation on how to obtain the EC/Lustered SuperGT with Mission Failure. The same Method is used for the Lustered/EC2 Yellow Turismo on PS3. To obtain it with Fail, start No. 1 and go to the Comet with Brucie and drive to the Race Start. Don't get into the Yellow Marker, simply drive next to the EC/Lustered SuperGT, get out and kill Brucie to fail the Mission. Once Brucie is dead, use your Comet to flip the EC/Lustered SuperGT onto its Roof to force the Driver to get out. You need to get the Driver to exit, since Parking Spots don't recognize Vehicles with Pedestrians inside them. Once the Driver is out, push the SuperGT to a Parking Spot and store it there. Then drive a Block away and come back. The SuperGT will have its Doors unlocked and will be stored. In the Video, you will see the other Race Vehicles vanishing, eventhough the Camera is looking at them, this is what usually happens on the PS3 Version. Vehicles can disappear for no reason even when looking at them, so be careful when pushing this Special Vehicle to the Parking Spot.

3.4. Lustered/EC2 Yellow Turismo
Mission: No. 1 (Pass on PC and Xbox 360, Fail on PS3)
How to Obtain: Check 3.2. to know how to get both the EC Bright Yellow Comet, EC/Lustered Light Blue SuperGT, and Lustered/EC2 Yellow Turismo with passing the Mission No. 1, or just how to get the Lustered/EC2 Yellow Turismo alone. This Turismo has a Bright Yellow Body Color which is not Special, it has an Invisible Secondary Color which is Special in combination with the Body Color and it also has a Random Luster on it. The Invisible EC2 is Black. Due to the Vehicle only being EC2, not all Lusters are Special. If you get the Taxi Yellow Luster, then it will be identical to the Yellow Turismo in Traffic, the only difference being the different Color 2, thus making this Turismo only a EC2 Turismo. However, you can only determine if the Luster on your obtained Turismo is Special or not using Save Editors, as the Bright Yellow Body Color makes the Lusters almost invisible and indistinguishable from each other, so it's barely even a Special Vehicle at all. On PS3 you can only obtain this Special Vehicle with a Mission Failure, so check 3.3. to know the Method how to do that, since it's the same exact Method for the SuperGT.

Video by Lethal Vaccine (PS3 Method)


3.5. Lustered Black Stallion (1 of 2)
Mission: Escuela of the Streets (Fail)
How to Obtain: Welcome to Bohan! This Stallion is Black in Color and has a very noticeable Special Luster on it. This one requires a Mission Failure, however there is a Lustered Black Stallion later on in the Story which can be obtained with a Mission Pass. So I suggest getting the second one. When getting this Lustered Black Stallion, or the second in the Story, make sure not to obtain the Temple Curtain Purple Luster or Black Poly Luster, as these Lusters are not Special and can be found in Traffic on normal Black Stallions. So whatever you do, don't get the Purple Luster or No Visible Luster on this Stallion, if you get these, reload and start the Mission again until you get a Special Luster. To get this Lustered Stallion, start the Mission Escuela of the Streets and drive with Manny to the location where the Lustered Stallion is. After the Cutscene, follow him like how you normally would and don't get near him or else the Mission will fail. Once the Dealer parks at the Location at his Warehouse, get in the Lustered Black Stallion and then shoot at the Door. Drive away and the Mission will fail for leaving the Deal Area. Now, simply park the Lustered Black Stallion in your Parking Spot and have it stored there.

3.6. Hybrid Spanish Primo with EC Yellow Details
Mission: Street Sweeper (Pass)
How to Obtain: This looks like an ordinary Spanish Tuner Primo, meaning it has a Metallic Red Color, has Yellow Rims and Grill and also a Spoiler, but it also has a Special Civilian Grill, meaning it's a Hybrid Vehicle. The Grill is the Horizontal Grill of a normal Primo, instead of a Diamond Hatch Grill that a normal Spanish Primo has. The Front Bumper is also Solid and it doesn't have the usual Holes along the Bottom. It also has EC Yellow Details, meaning it has EC Yellow Rims, Grill, Door Handles, Window Sidings and Exhausts. When compared to a Normal Spanish Primo, the Details look almost identical, but they're different Colors, which makes these Details still EC Yellow. To get the Hybrid Spanish Primo Grill with EC Yellow Details, start the Mission Street Sweeper and go to the Location as instructed. Now simply kill the Gang Members to pass the Mission. Once the Mission is passed, get in the Hybrid Spanish Primo Grill with EC Yellow Details like shown in the Video and store it at a Parking Spot.

3.7. Oracle without Medallion
Mission: Luck of the Irish (Fail)
How to Obtain: Only the Tuner Oracles don't have a Medallion, this Oracle without Medallion is a regular Oracle just without the Medallion on it, which makes it Special. The missing Medallion is the missing Übermacht Logo on the Vehicle. You can basically say it's a NE Oracle (No Extra). It also has a random Traffic Color on it. To get this Oracle without Medallion, start the Mission Luck of the Irish and go to the Rooftop Location and pick up the Sniper Rifle. Once you've done it, get to the Vantage Point. After the Cutscene, drop down onto the Fire Escape Stairs, then aim with the Sniper Rifle and shoot at Packie and kill him to break up the Meeting. Make sure you kill him and not just injure him or else he will escape with the Oracle without Medallion. Now, simply go down the Fire Escape Stairs and drop down on the Road. At this point, get a Vehicle and push the Oracle without Medallion to your Bohan Parking Spot and have it stored there. You need to push it as it's an Unjackable Vehicle. Once it's parked there, drive around the Block and come back to the Parking Spot, so it won't be Unjackable anymore.

3.8. EC/Lustered Yellow Patriot (1 of 3)
Mission: Blow Your Cover (Pass)
How to Obtain: This Patriot is owned by Playboy X and has a special EC Yellow Color on it with a Random Luster to it. It doesn't have the Roof Lights or the American Flag Design on the Side. The Random Luster isn't very visible on it, so any EC/Lustered Yellow Patriot that you get is good enough. To get the first out of the three EC/Lustered Yellow Patriots, start the Mission Blow Your Cover and immediately turn left, you will see the EC/Lustered Yellow Patriot. Get in it with Playboy X and drive it to the Parking Spot to store it. Now, get a random Vehicle from the Streets and go to the Deal Location with Playboy. Just simply pass the Mission, so get to the Location where Johnny is, do the Shootout Part and then simply lose the Cops. Then, drive Playboy X to his Place to pass the Mission. Algonquin will be unlocked after this Mission and you can now use the two Parking Spots on Algonquin for more Storage without having to worry about the 6 Star Wanted Levels. At this point, go back to your EC/Lustered Yellow Patriot to see that it's stored where you left it. You need to go back to the Parking Spot to check it, because if you don't then there is a chance that it might disappear upon saving and reloading.

3.9. EC White and Pink Voodoo with EC Light Grey Details
Mission: Have a Heart (Pass)
How to Obtain: This Voodoo has a EC White/Beige Body Color and a EC Pink/Fuchsia Colored Stripe. It also has EC Light Grey Details which include EC Light Grey Rims, Front and Back Bumper, Door Handles, Window Sidings, Rear Mirrors and Tiny Stripes along the Sides. It's fully EC and the Set Luster on it is also EC, though it's not very Visible. It's simple to obtain it, start the Mission Have a Heart and then get in the EC White and Pink Voodoo with EC Light Grey Details. In the Cutscene, Elizabeta killed Manny and his Camera Man and they'll be in the Trunk of the EC Voodoo. Now, don't go to the Doctor to pass the Mission, instead try to open the Trunk and then have the two Bodies fall off from the Trunk by crashing the Vehicle at a Wall or by jumping off from the Highway on Charge Island. Once the Bodies are out of the EC Voodoo's Trunk, the Mission will pass, but instead you won't get any Money. Once the Mission is Passed, you will still be driving the EC White and Pink Voodoo with EC Light Grey Details, just drive it to a Safehouse Parking Spot and store it there. This used to be called a EC Beige and Fuchsia Voodoo, but the renaming just sounds better and explains what's EC on it.

4.0. EC/Lustered Yellow Patriot (2 of 3)
Mission: Deconstruction for Beginners (Pass)
How to Obtain: In the Mission Deconstruction for Beginners you can obtain both the EC/Lustered Yellow Patriot and Lustered Black Cavalcade with EC Black Rims with passing the Mission. This is the second out of three EC/Lustered Yellow Patriots which doesn't have an American Flag Decal on it. The Luster can't really be seen on this Patriot so any Luster you can is Special, because the Body Color is EC. The Lustered Black Cavalcade with EC Black Rims is a Cavalcade with a Traffic Black Color, but it has EC Black Rims which are Special, as all other Cavalcades have Silver or Gold Rims and it also sometimes has a Special Luster. To get both of them, start the Mission Deconstruction for Beginners. After the Cutscene, you will be provided with Playboy's EC/Lustered Yellow Patriot, but it's already on the Parking Spot. Simply, get a random Traffic Vehicle and leave the EC/Lustered Yellow Patriot stay there at the Parking Spot. This makes it the easiest Special Vehicle in the whole GTA Series as you literally don't need to do anything for it to get it, not even touch it. When you get a random Traffic Vehicle with Playboy X, drive to the Construction Yard south of Algonquin and get in the Lustered Cavalcade with EC Rims parked in the Alleyway. After the Cutscene, get back in the Lustered Cavalcade with EC Black Rims and simply drive it to a Parking Spot to store it. Once you've done that, go back to Playbox X and finish the Mission like normal by killing the Lookouts and Union Leaders there. Once the Mission is passed, go back to your Parking Spots where you've stored the EC/Lustered Patriot and Lustered Cavalcade with EC Rims to make sure that they're stored there.

4.1. Lustered Black Cavalcade with EC Black Rims
Mission: Deconstruction for Beginners (Pass)
How to Obtain: Check 4.0. to know how to obtain both the EC/Lustered Yellow Patriot and Lustered Black Cavalcade with EC Black Rims while passing the Mission Deconstruction with Beginners. This Cavalcade is Black in Body Color with isn't Special, but it sometimes has a Special Luster on it, plus it also has Black Rims which are EC, as Traffic Cavalcades have Silver or Gold Rims. Basically, any Luster you get on it is Special, but avoid the Black Luster or the Silver Stone Poly Luster, because in Traffic there is a Black Cavalcade with Black Luster and one with the Silver Stone Poly Luster, but it has Silver Rims, so it would make this Cavalcade from the Mission a Pitch Black Cavalcade. It would be Special, but it's less Special of what can be obtained in this Mission, so I suggest avoiding the Lusters which aren't Visible. If you get any Colored Luster on it, it's Special so do not worry. Also, I say that it has EC Black Rims, meanwhile it also has EC Black Grills and EC Black Headlights as they're the same Color Area, but it's easier to say EC Black Rims than EC Black Details.

4.2. EC/Lustered Yellow Patriot (3 of 3)
Mission: Photo Shoot (Pass)
How to Obtain: In the Mission Photo Shoot you can get four different Special Vehicles while passing the Mission, these are the EC/Lustered Yellow Patriot, EC/Lustered Dark Grey and Black Sabre GT, EC/Lustered Light Silver Patriot and EC/Lustered Dark Silver Patriot. This is your third and last Chance to get the EC/Lustered Yellow Patriot which doesn't have the American Flag Decal on it. The Luster on the Yellow Patriot isn't very Visible so any Luster you get on it is Special. The EC/Lustered Sabre GT has a Dark Grey Color with a Black Stripe and also has a Special Luster. The EC/Lustered Patriots both have a EC Light or EC Dark Silver Color and a Special Luster on it, the Colors on the two Patriots is slightly different. The American Flag Decal on them is randomized. To obtain these four Special Vehicles, start the Mission Photo Shoot. After the Cutscene the EC/Lustered Yellow Patriot will be automatically on the Parking Spot provided for you, don't get in it but rather leave it there as it's already saved at the Parking Spot. This makes it the easiest Special Vehicle in the GTA Series, same as the second EC/Lustered Yellow Patriot, as you basically don't need to do anything for it. Get a random Traffic Vehicle or run on foot to the Basketball Courts as instructed, but don't get into the Yellow Marker just yet. You will see the EC/Lustered Dark Grey and Black Sabre GT parked there nearby, just take it and drive it to a Safehouse Parking Spot. Once you've done that, go back to the Basketball Courts. Around the Area you will find two EC/Lustered Silver Patriots, one is EC Light Silver and the other one is EC Dark Silver. Get one and simply store it at a Safehouse Parking Spot. Then go back, get the other Patriot and store it too. When all four Vehicles are stored, go to the Yellow Marker and simply pass the Mission. Use your Phone Camera to make a Photo of the Gang Members and send it to Playboy X, wait for his Message and then kill Marlon. Once the Mission is passed, go back to your Parking Spots to check on all your Special Vehicles that they're stored to confirm them.

4.3. EC/Lustered Dark Grey and Black Sabre GT
Mission: Photo Shoot (Pass)
How to Obtain: Check 4.2. to know how to obtain the EC/Lustered Yellow Patriot, EC/Lustered Dark Grey and Black Sabre GT, EC/Lustered Light Silver Patriot and EC/Lustered Dark Silver Patriot while passing the Mission at the same time. This Sabre GT has a EC Dark Grey Color with a normal Black Stripe, but has a Special Luster on it always. Eventhough the Black Color can be found on Traffic Sabre GTs like that on the Stripe, the Dark Grey Body Color makes it fully EC in terms of Combination, thus all Lusters on it are Special. If you get a Twilight Blue Poly, Securicor Dark Green, Astra Silver Poly or Silver Stone Poly Luster, it's still Special, but would be a bit identical to the Traffic Sabre GTs where the difference is the changed Dark Grey Body Color. But don't worry, any Luster you get on it is Special.

4.4. EC/Lustered Light Silver Patriot
Mission: Photo Shoot (Pass)
How to Obtain: Check 4.2. to know how to obtain the EC/Lustered Yellow Patriot, EC/Lustered Dark Grey and Black Sabre GT, EC/Lustered Light Silver Patriot and EC/Lustered Dark Silver Patriot while passing the Mission at the same time. This Patriot has a EC Light Silver Color found in Traffic and always has a Special Luster on it. There will be two EC/Lustered Silver Patriots in the Mission, one is EC Dark Silver and the other is EC Light Silver. The American Flag Decal is randomized for those Patriots. The Light Silver one is the one placed South of the Basketball Court.

4.5. EC/Lustered Dark Silver Patriot
Mission: Photo Shoot (Pass)
How to Obtain: Check 4.2. to know how to obtain the EC/Lustered Yellow Patriot, EC/Lustered Dark Grey and Black Sabre GT, EC/Lustered Light Silver Patriot and EC/Lustered Dark Silver Patriot while passing the Mission at the same time. This Patriot has a EC Light Silver Color found in Traffic and always has a Special Luster on it. There will be two EC/Lustered Silver Patriots in the Mission, one is EC Dark Silver and the other is EC Light Silver. The American Flag Decal is randomized for those Patriots. The Dark Silver one is the one placed East of the Basketball Court, or in other words behind it from where you arrive.

4.6. EC/Lustered Bright Red and Black Hellfury
Mission: Ruff Rider (Pass)
How to Obtain: This Special Hellfury is EC Bright Red, unlike the Metallic Red which is found in Traffic, while the Bright Red one is a Plain and Glossy Red with no Metallic Aspect, so the Bright Red one is still EC. It's very hard to spot the difference between the EC Hellfury and the normal Metallic Red Hellfury, even in direct comparison. It has a Black Frame on it which is found in Traffic and is also Specially Lustered. Any Luster you get on it is fine. Interestingly, the Luster is nicely visible on the Black Frame of the Hellfury, thus why I call it EC Bright Red and Black. To get this EC/Lustered Bright Red and Black Hellfury, start the Mission Ruff Rider from Dwayne and go to the Arcade in Chinatown as instructed. At this point, either spare or kill Cherise, I suggest sparing her so you can do a Random Encounter Mission for her later on. Once you killed or spared her, get on the nearby Randomly Colored NRG 900 and chase down Jayvon who is riding this EC/Lustered Bright Red and Black Hellfury. Kill him using Drive-By, take his Money and then get on his EC/Lustered Bright Red and Black Hellfury. Now, drive to Cluckin' Bell using the Hellfury to meet Dwayne there. Park the Hellfury outside of Cluckin' Bell and then get in it to pass the Mission. Once the Mission is passed, go back outside and get on the EC/Lustered Hellfury, now simply drive it to a Parking Spot and have it stored there.

4.7. Lustered Black Dukes
Mission: Lure (Pass)
How to Obtain: This is a Black Dukes with a Random Luster on it, the extra Features that the Dukes has will still be randomized. Not only is the Body Color Black, but also the Back and Front Bumper, Window Sidings, Door Handles, Side Exhaust Pipe and Rear Mirrors. Though none of it is EC alone and the Combination of the Body Color are Details are not EC either. You must be careful for the Lusters though, any Luster is Special except for the Black Luster, which in other words is no Luster at all, invisible from the Body Color. Just avoid the Lusters that can't be seen. If you get a Garnet Red Poly or Midnight Blue Luster, then the Dukes will still be Special, but compared to some Traffic Dukeses, the only difference would be the Black Details, Bumpers etc. If you get a Lammy Orange Luster then compared to one Dukes in Traffic, the only difference would be the Body Color itself. All Lusters are Special except for the Black Luster, so avoid that one at all costs. To actually obtain this Lustered Black Dukes, start the Francis Mission Lure and go to the Feltzer with the Sniper Rifle in it. Now drive to the Location where the Dealer is. In front of his Building on the Street, you will see this Lustered Black Dukes parked there. If you don't like the Luster on it or if it's not a Special Luster, reload and start the Mission again. At this moment, get in the Lustered Black Dukes and then get out of it, so the Game will mark it as Niko's last driven Vehicle and it won't vanish. After that, walk up the Stairs and lure the Dealer to the Window so you can kill him with the Sniper Rifle. You can lure him there by calling his Phone Number, shooting his Satellite Dish or by shooting his TV. After he's dead and the Mission gets passed, go down onto the Street and get back in the Lustered Black Dukes. Now simply park it at your Parking Spot and have it stored there.

4.8. Lustered Black Sentinel with EC Black Rims (1 of 2)
Mission: Wrong is Right (Pass)
How to Obtain: This is a Sentinel with a Black Body Color found in Traffic, but it has EC Black Rims which are Special, as the Traffic Sentinels have Silver or Dark Grey or Light Brown Rims, and this one also has a Random Luster. The Luster on it is always Special because it's a EC Vehicle, but if you get a Black Poly or Torch Green Luster, then compared to some Traffic Sentinels, the only difference would be the Rims Color. So if you want, you can avoid those to have a far more Special Sentinel. To obtain it, start the Mission Wrong is Right for the United Liberty Paper Contact and drive to Oleg's Apartment in Hove Beach. Check his E-Mails on his Computer as instructed and then drive to the Location where he meets up with Vasily. As soon as the Cutscene ends, immediately aim at his Head using your Drive-By Weapon while he drives off and shoot him dead which will pass the Mission. If it's done quick enough, while he turns right, his dead body should fall out of the Lustered Black Sentinel with EC Black Rims and the Door should remain open which will allow you to get into it and drive it to a Safehouse Parking Spot. If his Body remains inside the Lustered Black Sentinel with EC Black Rims, then you will need to call 911 and select the Fire Department and use the Fire Truck to roll the Sentinel a bit while you push it back to a Safehouse so his Body falls out. You need to have his Body out of the Sentinel, because if you store the Sentinel with his Body then the Sentinel will disappear. You need to have Oleg's Body fall out no matter what if you want to keep this Special Vehicle. When his Body falls out, push it to a Parking Spot, and once the Lustered Black Sentinel with EC Black Rims is in the Parking Spot, drive a few blocks away and come back to confirm that it's there and saved. All in all, you just got to be lucky to Drive-By kill Oleg quickly so that you can enter the Sentinel and just park it at the Safehouse Parking Spot. Also, I highly suggest getting this one from Wrong is Right, than the one from the Revenge Ending, as this one from Wrong is Right can be obtained with a Mission Pass, unlike the one from Out of Commission.

4.9. EC White and Red Maverick (1 of 2)
Mission: Dust Off (Fail)
How to Obtain: This is the first out of the two EC White Mavericks with Red Stripes, but this one requires a Mission Failure, while the second one can be obtained with a Mission Pass. I suggest getting the second one. This is a very weird Vehicle, the Mission Script gives it a Color Number of 195 which doesn't even exist, but instead of that the White Color is spawned on it. The Red is still Special on it, so it's EC and Special in any way. To get this one, start the Mission Dust Off and go to the Civilization Plaza as instructed. After that, follow the Maverick like how you normally would, this Maverick is the EC White and Red Maverick. When you get to the Helipad in Westminster, let the Maverick land there and then take it. When you got into it, fly it to a Parking Spot and land it there. Once it's parked, drive a far enough Distance away from it so the Mission fails and the return to it to confirm that it's still there and saved. On some Versions you will need to actually destroy the EC White and Red Maverick while it's in the Parking Spot like in the Video, drive a far enough Distance away from it and then come back.

Video by Lethal Vaccine


5.0. Lustered Black Emperor
Mission: Dust Off (Pass)
How to Obtain: This is a Black Emperor with a Random Luster on it, it's the normal Version of the Emperor and not the Beater Version. The Black Body Color is not Special at all, neither is the Black Roof, neither is their Combination. When you get it, avoid the Pewter Gray Poly Luster, because if you get that one, your Emperor would be a normal one, not Special at all, so avoid that one at all costs. If you get the Shadow Silver Poly or Gray Poly Luster, then compared to some Emperors in Traffic, the only difference would be the Body Color and it would still be Special. So any Luster, except the Pewter Gray Poly one, will be Special. To get it, you simply need to pass the Mission Dust Off. So start the Mission and go to the Location to follow the Maverick, then get in the Maverick and fly it to the Airport as instructed. After you land the Maverick at the Airport, the Mission will be passed. Now you need to turn around and you will see the Lustered Black Emperor by the Building. Get into it and drive it to a Safehouse Parking Spot and have it stored there. Simple. If you get a Luster that you don't like or if it's not Special, reload and do the Mission again.

5.1. EC White and Black Maverick
Mission: Paper Trail (Fail + Phone Replay)
How to Obtain: This is one of the harder Special Vehicles to obtain in IV, if not then the hardest. This is a White Maverick with Black Stripes and the Colors are EC. Before starting this quest, you will need to have Kiki's Special Ability unlocked which allows you to remove Wanted Levels and you will also need an Annihilator. Actually, you can also use Francis' Special Ability after killing Derrick in Blood Brothers, which is the same Special Abilitiy as Kiki's. To get the Annihilator, you will need to kill all 200 Pigeons before this Mission or you can get it from Free Roam while the Annihilators are chasing after you on high Wanted Levels. In my opinion, it's best to get rid of the 200 Pigeons for the Annihilator, as you need to do that for 100% Completion anyways. Before activating Paper Trail by answering the Phone Call from the United Liberty Paper Contact, first get a Helitours Maverick and fly to the top of the MeTV Building where the Annihilator spawns after you killed all 200 Pigeons. Once you get there, get inside the Annihilator and activate the Mission Paper Trail by answering the Phone Call. If you are on the Mission before going to the MeTV Building, the Annihilator won't spawn, because it doesn't spawn when a Mission is taking place. Now what you want to do is fly to Northwood and land the Annihilator near where the White and Red Maverick is. Get in the Maverick with Little Jacob and skip the Cutscene, then get out of it and get in the Annihilator. It's important that you skip the Cutscene so that the Annihilator doesn't vanish. Once that is done, locate the Maverick you need to chase down and then slightly bump the Passenger Side of the EC White and Black Maverick to force the Passenger out of it. While you fly towards the EC Maverick, the Mission will be failed for abandoning Jacob and you will get a Text Message to Replay the Mission. Don't replay the Mission and leave that Message alone for now. Now, you want to fly up in the skies where the EC Maverick will be, then shoot at the Maverick using the Annihilator Guns, the Pilot will bail out and the EC Maverick will be on Fire. Don't blow it up using the Annihilator Guns, just damage it until it's on Fire. Your goal is to make it crash onto Land and once that happens, it will blow up and be a destroyed Wreck of the EC White and Black Maverick, then fly down keeping the Camera on the EC Maverick. At this point, you will spike a 2 Star Wanted Level, however, call Kiki to remove the Wanted Level and now call 911 to request a Fire Truck by choosing the Fire Department. After that, use the Fire Truck and push the Wreck of the Maverick back to the Middle Park East Safehouse. Do not take the Camera off the Wreck even for one Second as it can easily disappear. Also try to be very quick with this task, if too much Traffic is spawning during the push back to the Safehouse, it can cause the Wreck to vanish. Even if the Camera is on it, so make sure you do this as quick as possible. Push it near the Parking Spot but not onto the Parking Spot Zone, just near it, line it up like you see in the Video. When that is done, get your Phone out and get your Text Message from UL Paper to replay Paper Trail out. Now, push the EC Maverick Wreck onto the Parking Spot and then quickly accept the Phone Replay to teleport away from the Area. Wrecks usually vanish immediately if you don't teleport out of there when they're on Parking Spots, thus why you need to do that extra step too. Once you accept the Phone Replay, you will have to do and complete Paper Trail like normally. Once passed, you can also take this EC White and Red Maverick which you will be flying at the end of the Mission, thus you can get both this EC White and Black Maverick and EC White and Red Maverick at the same time while failing Paper Trail once and using a Phone Replay for it. You will need a lot of persistence and determination if you want to pull this off. Good luck as you will need it! If you've succeeded and obtained the EC White and Black Maverick, congratulations as this is one of the hardest tasks in IV. Take note that this is completely unobtainable on the PS3 Version since the Annihilator always despawns when you enter Jacob's Maverick.

5.2. EC White and Red Maverick (2 of 2)
Mission: Paper Trail (Pass)
How to Obtain: This is an easy to obtain Special Vehicle, it's a EC White Maverick with Red Stripes and it's much easier to get than the EC White and Black Maverick from the same Mission. I suggest getting this White and Red one from Paper Trail instead of the Dust Off one, as the Dust Off one needs a Mission Failure. To get this second one, which I recommend if you want this EC White and Red Maverick, start the Mission Paper Trail by answering the Phone, go to Northwood where Jacob is and get in the EC White and Red Maverick. Now simply pass the Mission and do the rest like normal, let Jacob blow up the White and Black Maverick with the RPG and land at the Helitours Location. Once the Mission is passed, fly the EC Maverick to a Safehouse Parking Spot and have it stored there. Simple. Just like the first one in the Guide, this EC White and Red Maverick is very weird as its White Color is actually a Color which doesn't exist in IV, it gets a Color ID of 195 which is unexistent. The Red on the Maverick is still EC, so it's EC either way. Also, you can get both the EC White and Red Maverick and EC White and Black Maverick at the same time while failing the Mission once and using a Phone Replay for the Mission, which is shown in the Video.

5.3. Unique Police Stockade (1 of 2)
Mission: Three Leaf Clover (Fail)
How to Obtain: There are two Unique Police Stockades in IV and I suggest getting the second Unique Police Stockade from Tunnel of Death as that one can be obtained with Pass, while this one from Three Leaf Clover needs a Mission Failure. Make note that the Police Stockade can sometimes have a BP Front Windshield and both Stockades can have it, sometimes it doesn't have the BP Front Windshield, if it doesn't then just reload the Game until it does. You can later convert this into AP and you'll have an unstoppable Unique/AP Police Stockade which is awesome for random Police Chases, especially if you have a BP Front Windshield on it. If you want to get this first Police Stockade, make sure to not complete the Mission A Long Way to Fall from Ray Boccino before doing Three Leaf Clover. That's very important. Start the Mission Three Leaf Clover, get a Four Door Car and drive to the Bank of Liberty with Packie, Derrick and Michael. After the Cutscene, go down to the Vault and get the Money like how you normally would. Now do the Shootout Part like normally and take out as many Cops as possible until you get to the Part like shown in the Video. You want to get to the Part where the Police Stockade comes and blocks the Road in Chinatown. Check if the Unique Police Stockade has the BP Mesh, if it doesn't then reload, of course you don't need it but it's preferable that it does. At this point, when you're at the Police Stockade, call 911 on your Phone and select the Fire Department Service. When the Fire Truck is here, get in it and then push the Police Stockade using the Fire Truck west down the Road. Eventually, the Mission will fail for being too far away from Packie and Derrick. You will still have the 5 Star Wanted Level after the Mission has failed. Now, you need to quickly push the Police Stockade near Ray Boccino's Mission like shown in the Video at the intersection. The reason why you want to activate the Mission is so you can lose the 5 Star Wanted Level. Be quick or be dead, as this is the hardest part. After the Cutscene, the Police Stockade will probably still be there. If it vanished, you'll need to reload. If the Unique Police Stockade is still there, push it using your Fire Truck to the Middle Park Safehouse Parking Spot. Use the Route shown in the Video. Pushing it isn't too hard, it may take some time but it's surely not a problem. Try to not get a Wanted Level while pushing it. When it's finally at the Parking Spot, simply pass the Ray Mission by going to the Projects on Galveston and by killing Teddy Benavidez. After you pass the Mission, go back to the Middle Park Parking Spot to see if the Unique Police Stockade is still there. If it is, congratulations! Like already said, it's better to get the one from Tunnel of Death as that one doesn't need a Mission Failure.

5.4. EC Random Irish Oracle
Mission: Taking in the Trash (Pass)
How to Obtain: This is a pretty interesting Special Vehicle since Irish Oracles which are commonly found in Steinway always come in a Black Body Color with a Dark Green Poly Luster, but the one found in the Mission Taking in the Trash is different. It has a Random Color every time you play the Mission, which makes this Irish/Tuner Oracle very Special as they're all not in the usual Black Color with Dark Green Poly Luster. Also, if you take a normal Irish Oracle from Traffic into Pay and Spray, it will change into a Black Body Color Irish Oracle with a Pastel Alabaster Solid Luster. So if you'd to get this EC Random Irish Oracle, avoid the Black Body Colors at all costs, as these are not Special. There is a Traffic Oracle with Black Body Color and Black Luster, but it's still not known if this Color Combination is Special or not on this EC Irish Oracle. If I were you, I'd just get any nicely Colored Irish Oracle which isn't Black. There's a nice Red Body Color one to get though. If you want to obtain it, start the Mission Taking in the Trash and simply go and pick up the Trashmaster as instructed. Get in the Trashmaster and simply go to the two Locations where the Diamonds are. After collecting the Diamonds at both Locations, this EC Random Irish Oracle will show up. All you have to do is kill the Driver of the Irish Oracle and the Passenger inside it. Now simply double drive the EC Irish Oracle and the Trashmaster back to a Safehouse Garage. Make sure you don't go too far away from the Trashmaster or else the Mission will fail. Once you get to the Parking Spot with the Trashmaster and the Irish/Tuner Oracle, simply park the EC Irish Oracle at the Parking Spot and drive the Trashmaster to the Location in Fishmarket South to pass the Mission. After the Mission is passed, go to the Parking Spot to confirm that the EC Random Irish Oracle is still there.

5.5. EC/Lustered Silver and Black Banshee
Mission: Meltdown (Pass)
How to Obtain: It's possible to obtain this EC/Lustered Silver and Black Banshee along with the Lustered Silver Lokus together while passing the Mission Meltdown. This Banshee has a EC Silver and Black Color Combination and has a Random Luster applied on it, where the Red Lusters probably look the nicest. Any Luster is Special on it, but if you get the Twilight Blue Poly or Torino Red Pearl Luster, then compared to one Banshee in Traffic, the only different thing would be the Body Color. The Black Stripe alone is not EC, while the Silver Body Color is, just like their Combination, so any Luster that you get will be Special. It can also have a Roof or it can be Roofless. To obtain it, start the Mission Meltdown and go to where Luca is. After the Cutscene Niko will automatically jack this EC/Lustered Banshee. Now chase the Goons driving the Lustered Lokus. Simply keep the Banshee in tact without crashing too much and don't Drive-By the Lustered Lokus too much as it might explode and you'll fail the Mission, so don't Drive-By it at all. When the Goons finally reach the Park and crash, drive down there and kill the Goon nearby. Then quickly get in the Lustered Silver Lokus and back out of it so te Game marks it as yours, you don't really need to do it but you can just in case. Kill off the remaining Goons, kill Luca on the Toilets and retrieve the Diamonds. Next, you will be instructed to go to the Bridge to meet Ray, however don't do that. Simply double drive the EC/Lustered Silver and Black Banshee and Lustered Silver Lokus to a Safehouse Parking Spot and have them stored there. When you get in the Lokus, you won't be able to easily turn on the Engine because it's heavily damaged, so while you're inside it, call anyone on the Phone Book and for some reason the Engine will turn on and you'll be able to drive it. When you get to the Parking Spot, park the EC/Lustered Banshee and Lustered Lokus there, now go to the Bridge to meet Ray and to pass the Mission. Now, go back to the Parking Spot to check that your Vehicles are there and haven't disappeared. Be careful not go get the Striking Blue Luster on the Lokus, as when you get that one, your Lokus would not be Special at all. Avoid the Striking Blue Luster on the Lokus at all costs, any other Luster will be Special on it. If you only want the EC/Lustered Banshee without the Lokus, just do the same without having to double drive the Lokus at all, as you see in the Video.

5.6. Unique Laundromat (2 of 2)
Mission: Meltdown (Pass)
How to Obtain: If you plan on getting this Unique Laundromat, then you obviously can't get the Special EC/Lustered Banshee from the same Mission in the above Post. This Unique Laundromat is more important, though, and it's the last chance to get one. Furthermore, the first one in the Guide required a Mission Failure, whereas this one does not. You can also obtain both this Unique Laundromat with the Lustered Silver Lokus. To obtain this Unique Laundromat, start the Mission Metldown and go to where Luca is. After the Cutscene Niko will jack the Banshee and a Chase will start. During the Chase, Scripted Events and Traffic will occur, now drive quickly as possible until you reach Hematite Street and you will notice a line of Vehicles waiting at a Traffic Light. In this lineup of Vehicles will be a Unique Laundromat. Just get out of the Banshee and jack the Laundromat, then proceed to follow the Goons, but making sure you do all of this quickly. If you aren't quick, the Mission will fail for losing the Target. Now simply follow them while you're driving the Unique Laundromat. Once the Goons reach the Park, they will crash their Lustered Silver Lokus and get out. Now, drive down with the Unique Laundromat and kill the nearby Goon. If you want to obtain both this Unique Laundromat and the Lustered Silver Lokus, do the same as explained in 5.5. just instead of doing it with the Banshee, you do it with the Laundromat. It's also shown in the Video how both the Laundromat and Lokus got obtained at the same time while passing the Mission. Once you're there at the Park, kill off the Enemies and kill Luca at the Toilets to retrieve the Diamonds. Then when you're instructed to meet Ray at the Bridge, drive the Unique Laundromat at a Safehouse Parking Spot and leave it there. If you want to get the Lokus also, double drive them to the Parking Spot and leave them there, though the Engines won't immediately be able to be turned on, so you'll need to call someone in the Phone Book while inside the Lokus, because that will activate the Engines too for some reason. Once the Vehicles are stored, or the Unique Laundromat alone for that matter, go and meet Ray on the Bridge to pass the Mission. Next, go back to the Parking Spot to confirm that your Unique Laundromat is still there. If you're also getting the Lokus, make sure not to get the Striking Blue Luster on it, because if you'd do so, then you'd get a Lokus which is not Special at all. Avoid the Striking Blue Luster on the Lokus.

5.7. Lustered Silver Lokus

Mission: Meltdown (Pass)
How to Obtain: Check out 5.5. to know how to get both the EC/Lustered Silver and Black Banshee with this Lustered Silver Lokus while passing Meltdown, or check out 5.6. to know how to get the Unique Laundromat with the Lustered Silver Lokus while passing Meltdown. If you want to get this Lustered Silver Lokus, avoid the Striking Blue Luster at all costs, because if you get this Luster, your Lokus would not be Special at all. Just get any Luster on it except for the Striking Blue one. If you want this Lustered Silver Lokus alone, start the Mission Meltdown and go to where Luca is, then do the Chase like how you normally would. The Goons will crash in Middle Park, now go and kill off the Enemies and kill Luca at the Toilets to retrieve the Diamonds. The Lustered Silver Lokus will be there outside, so get in it. Due to the Damage dealt onto the Lokus, it will have trouble turning on the Engines, so call anyone in your Phone Book, because that will turn on the Engines for some reason. Next, drive the Lustered Silver Lokus very carefully to a Safehouse Parking Spot so you don't damage it accidently. Leave it there, then go to Ray at the Bridge to pass the Mission. After that, check if the Lustered Silver Lokus is still there at the Parking Spot, because if you don't do that, there might be a chance that it would vanish upon saving and reloading without doing that.

5.8. Hybrid/EC White Mafia PMP 600
Mission: Museum Piece (Pass)
How to Obtain: In the Mission Museum Piece there are these two Hybrid/EC White Mafia PMP 600 and a Black Hybrid Mafia PMP 600. The Black one isn't EC at all. Actually, if you only get the EC White one, you can take it to Pay and Spray enough times to recreate the same Black one. I name both ones in the Guide because they're both Special for their Hybrid Grill, which is a mix of the Normal Civilian PMP 600 Grill and the Grill of the Mafia PMP 600. They also have a Spoiler on them, which makes them the Mafia Variant. This White one is actually EC, eventhough the White Body Color can be found in Traffic on PMP 600s, but this EC one has a Set Black Luster, which makes the Body Color look different to the ones in Traffic which have a Flax Luster. To obtain both of them while passing the Mission, start the Mission Museum Piece and drive to the Libertonian in Middle Park. You will see some PMP 600s scattered around the Area. Don't go to Johnny, instead, get a Hybrid/EC White Mafia PMP 600 on the back of the Museum. Take it and store it at a Safehouse Parking Spot. Now, go to Johnny and after the Cutscene, do the Shootout Part like how you normally would. When you exit the Museum, finish off the nearby Enemies and take one of the Black Hybrid Mafia PMP 600s. Now, either lose or kill off the Goons to pass the Mission. Once you've done that, go to the Safehouse Parking Spot where you stored the Hybrid/EC Mafia PMP 600 and store the Black one there. Simple. Interestingly, these same Vehicles also appear in TLaD and TBoGT.

5.9. Hybrid Mafia PMP 600
Mission: Museum Piece (Pass)
How to Obtain: Check out 5.8. to know how to get both the Hybrid/EC White Mafia PMP 600 and the Black Hybrid Mafia PMP 600 while passing the Mission Museum Piece. This Black one is not actually EC and can be recreated if you obtain the Hybrid/EC White Mafia PMP 600 when you take it into Pay and Spray enough times. Interestingly, these same Vehicles also appear in TLaD and TBoGT. I name both ones in the Guide because they're both Special for their Hybrid Grill, which is a mix of the Normal Civilian PMP 600 Grill and the Grill of the Mafia PMP 600.

6.0. Lustered Black Cognoscenti
Mission: Actions Speak Louder than Words (Fail)
How to Obtain: Be extremily careful about this Randomly Lustered Vehicle, because most of the time, 7 out of 9 times chance to be exact, this Lustered Cognoscenti won't be Special at all. When it's not Special it will have a Silver Stone Poly, which is already found on an all Black Body Color Cognoscenti in Traffic. 2 out of 9 times this Cognoscenti will be Special, then it will either have a Blue or Petrol Blue Green Poly Luster. So you'll need to reload most of the time to get the right and Special Luster. Like already said, be very careful about this Cognoscenti and only obtain it if you see it having a Blue or Petrol Blue Green Poly Luster. This Cognoscenti also is fully Black in Body Colors, which is not Special at all. To obtain it, start the Mission Actions Speak Louder than Words and then go pick up the Car Bomb nearby. Then drive to the Ancelloti's Car in Algonquin. This will be the Lustered Black Cognoscenti. Now, damage the Cognoscenti using your Vehicle to fail the Mission. Once the Mission has failed, push the Lustered Black Cognoscenti to one of your Safehouse Parking Spots because it is Unjackable. I suggest using the Middle Park East one as it's the closest. It will take you some time to push the Lustered Cognoscenti all the way there, it's not hard but it will be a long way. Use the Route as shown in the Videos and be patient. Also, try not to get a Wanted Level while pushing it, because that will ruin your progress. When it's finally at the Parking Spot, drive around a Block and then come back to it. By doing so, the Lustered Black Cognoscenti will be repaired and confirmed to be stored at the Parking Spot. In both Videos you can see the normal Traffic Colored Cognoscenti being obtained, so don't get the one which has the Silver Stone Poly Luster, you'll visually recognize it for not having any visible Luster at all, avoid that one at all costs.

6.1. Hybrid PCJ 600
Mission: I Need Your Clothes, Your Boots, and Your Motorcycle (Pass)
How to Obtain: This is a very interesting Special Vehicle, it's the Traffic Colored PCJ 600 with the Red Color and Gold Rims, but it also has the Steel-Colored Pipe Frame hybridized with the Golden Pipe Frame that the normal PCJ 600's have. Most of the time, the PCJ 600 will be a normal one with either only the Silver Pipe Frame or either only the Gold Pipe Frame, so you'll need to keep reloading until you see it in the Hybrid Version. When it has the Silver Pipe Frame, it's not Special, as you can get any PCJ 600 from Traffic and take it to Pay and Spray to get the same Colors, with the Silver Pipe Frame. Thus it's only Special when both the Golden and Silver Pipe Frames spawn together, only when it's Hybrid. To obtain it, start the second Gerald McReary Mission in the Game and get on the Hybrid PCJ 600 when it finally spawns in Hybrid form. Now, simply pass the Mission. So drive to Algonquin with the Hybrid PCJ 600 and kill Frankie Garone. After the Mission is done, take the Hybrid PCJ 600 to a Safehouse Parking Spot and have it stored there. In the Videos you can nicely see how it looks in Hybrid form.

6.2. Lustered Black Contender
Mission: Smackdown (Pass)
How to Obtain: Welcome to Alderney! You can actually obtain this Lustered Black Contender with the Lustered Black Stallion together with passing the Mission Smackdown. This Contender has a Random Luster applied on it and has random Variation Extras applied on it, the Body Color is not EC at all. Be careful about choosing the Luster on this Contender though, choose any other Luster except for Black, because the Black Luster makes this Contender not Special at all. Choose any colored and nice Luster on it, for example the Green Lusters which are Special and look nice on it. For the Stallion's Special Lusters view the next entry. To obtain it, start the Mission Smackdown and get the Police Patrol nearby. Use the Police Computer to find Bucky Sligo and drive to Burger Shot as instructed. When you arrive, Bucky will come out driving this Lustered Black Contender, now follow him to his Hideout. Once he's at the Hideout, he'll stop and get out of the Contender, getting in the House. There's a Lustered Black Contender and Lustered Black Stallion in the front yard. Simply get in the Lustered Contender, drive it to the Alderney Safehouse Parking Spot and have it stored there. Once it's done, go back to Bucky's House and kill him and all of his Crew. Now, get in the Lustered Stallion and drive away. Lose the Wanted Level if you need to. Once the Mission is passed, drive the Lustered Black Stallion to the Alderney Safehouse Parking Spot and have it stored there along with the Contender. Simple Vehicles to obtain. You can also first get the Stallion and then the Contender, it's fine however you do it.

6.3. Lustered Black Stallion (2 of 2)
Mission: Smackdown (Pass)
How to Obtain: Check out 6.2. to know how to get both the Lustered Black Contender and Lustered Black Stallion while passing the Mission Smackdown. Be very, very careful about the Lusters of the Stallion. Avoid the Black Poly and the Temple Curtain Purple Lusters at all costs, because these Lusters would make the Stallion not Special at all. Avoid these Lusters and obtain any other than those. If you get a wrong Luster, reload and restart the Mission. You'll recognize the Black Poly Luster for not being colored at all, and the Temple Curtain Purple Luster can be recognized as a Red/Purple Color. Like already mentioned, avoid those. Be also careful for the Lusters on the Contender which are already explained. Also, the Stallion can have a Roof in the Mission or it can be Roofless.

6.4. EC Dark Green Willard with EC Black Door Interior
Mission: Babysitting (Fail)
How to Obtain: This is a Willard with a Special EC Dark Green Body Color and a Special EC Black Door Interior Color. The Door Interior Color Area are just two rectangles on the Door viewed from the Interior. To obtain this EC Dark Green Willard with EC Black Door Interior, start the Mission Babysitting. After the Cutscene you'll be sitting inside Derrick's Squalo. Sail to Kim's Reefer as instructed and then after the Cutscene, drive away from Kim and lose him to fail the Mission. Once the Mission has failed, there'll be a Fail Cutscene where Niko and Derrick will be sitting inside this EC Willard. Simply take it to a Parking Spot to store this EC Dark Green Willard with EC Black Door Interior. Also, interestingly, the Squalo you're driving is actually a EC Green Squalo, but it's unobtainable as you can't store Boats on Parking Spots, also there is a EC Black Maverick in this Mission, but it's only obtainable with Cheats.

Video by Lethal Vaccine


6.5. EC/Lustered Green and Blue Rancher
Mission: Babysitting (Pass)
How to Obtain: Before it was thought that this Rancher was unobtainable on the PS3 Version, however it turns out to be false and that it's obtainable on PS3. This Rancher has a Special EC Green and Blue Color, and also has a Random Luster which is always Special on it, though the Luster can't really be seen on it due to the Body Colors. To obtain it, simply pass the Mission Babysitting. So follow Kim's Reefer protecting him and destroying the Dinghys and Maverick as instructed. Once you're at Bohan, there'll be an Ending Cutscene of the Mission in which this EC/Lustered Green and Blue Rancher appears. Skip the Cutscene immediately and turn your Camera to the Rancher at the Docks. You will be on top of the Staircase, now simply descend down the Stairs and you will find this EC/Lustered Rancher there, take it and drive it to a Safehouse Parking Spot to store it. Also, interestingly, the Squalo you're driving is actually a EC Green Squalo, but it's unobtainable as you can't store Boats on Parking Spots, also there is a EC Black Maverick in this Mission, but it's only obtainable with Cheats.

6.6. Unique Police Stockade (2 of 2)
Mission: Tunner of Death (Pass)
How to Obtain: It's possible to obtain both this Unique Police Stockade and the EC/Lustered Bright Red Biff at the same time while passing the Mission, though I suggest getting each in different Save Files but it's up to you if you want to get both at the same time. There was a Unique Police Stockade from Three Leaf Clover but that one required a Mission Failure, so I suggest getting this one from Tunnel of Death with Pass. Make note that the Police Stockade can have a BP Front Windshield or it can be without the BP Front Windshield, it's a Variation thing and if you don't like the Variant, you can reload and retry until it has the BP Front Windshield. Before starting the Mission, get a Fire Truck and park it at the Alderney Safehouse Parking Spot either by calling 911 or by getting it from Free Roam. Once you have it, start the Mission Tunnel of Death, accept Packie's Phone Call and drive to the location where the Biff is and get in it. Drive into the Booth Tunnel and park it on the two Yellow Markers as instructed, then do the Shootout Part like normal. You will see Packie's EC/Lustered Bright Red Biff coming while you do that. Get in the Unique Police Stockade and lose the 3 Star Wanted Level as quick as you can, I suggest making a U-Turn and driving towards Algonquin, with some luck you'll lose the Wanted Level like how you see in the Video. Now, the Biff will stay in the Tunnel and won't vanish, drive back to it and get in and out of it so assure it to not vanish, only if you want to get both while passing the Mission of course. Drive the Police Stockade to the Alderney Safehouse and get in the Fire Truck. Now, double drive the Fire Truck and Unique Police Stockade to the Destination, making sure that you don't drive too far away from the Police Stockade. If you accidently do that, the Mission will fail and you'll need to do everything over again. So, get in the Police Stockade, drive it a bit forward, then get out, run to the Fire Truck and get in it, drive it a bit forward from where the Police Stockade is, then get out and run to the Stockade, repeat the Process until you're at the Destination. Once you get there, park the Fire Truck on the Road and drive the Unique Police Stockade into the Yellow Marker. After the Cutscene, the Fire Truck will still be there. Park the Presidente on the Road close by and use the Fire Truck to push the Police Stockade into the Street as well. At this point, you want to slowly push the Unique Police Stockade using the Fire Truck all the way back to the Alderney Safehouse Parking Spot whilst alternating and double driving the Presidente and keeping the Camera on the Police Stockade and Fire Truck at all times. Even if you take the Camera off of it for a few seconds, it could very easily vanish and you'll have to start over. Don't push it very hard as that will attract a Wanted Level and it's certainly not what you want for this task. Also, don't get too far away from either the Presidente, as that will fail the Mission, and the Police Stockade, as that will make it vanish. Once you finally get it back to the Alderney Safehouse Parking Spot, securely push it into the designated Parking Area and then ditch the Fire Truck and get back into the Presidente to finish the Mission like normal. If you're also getting the EC/Lustered Bright Red Biff during this quest, don't finish the Mission, but rather drive to the Booth Tunnel with the Presidente as the Biff will be there in the Tunnel. Simply get in the Biff and double drive both the Presidente and Biff to the Alderney Safehouse Parking Spot, making sure that you don't drive too far away from the Presidente as that will fail the Mission. Once the Biff is secured there along with the Police Stockade, get in the Presidente and drive to the Cliffs of Leftwood and kill Aiden to pass the Mission like normally. After the Mission is passed, before saving the Game, go back to the Alderney Safehouse and you should see the Unique Police Stockade and EC/Lustered Bright Red Biff still there and the Door will now be unlocked on the Police Stockade. If you don't want to get the Biff, just don't double drive it back to the Parking Spot after getting the Police Stockade there. The Fire Truck Police Stockade pushing Part takes around 30 minutes so it's not too bad, especially since the Fire Truck can push the Police Stockade like nothing. No other Method on the entire Internet mentions the use of a Fire Truck. If you succeed at this task, then you conquered one of the most challenging Special Vehicles in all of GTA IV with passing the Mission. The Police Stockade in Three Leaf Clover is perhaps identical in terms of difficulty, however, there is no way to get that with passing the Mission. Good luck, especially if you're getting the Biff at the same time.

6.7. EC/Lustered Bright Red Biff
Mission: Tunner of Death (Pass)
How to Obtain: Check out 6.8. to know how to get both the Unique Police Stockade and EC/Lustered Bright Red Biff at the same time while passing the Mission Tunnel of Death. The Lusters on the Biff aren't very noticable but are still there, all Lusters are Special on it as it's a EC Vehicle. This is Packie's Biff and not Niko's one in the Mission, Niko's Biff is Randomly Colored. To obtain this EC/Lustered Biff without the Police Stockade which is explained above, start and do the Mission like normal up until you are sitting inside the Police Stockade. Make a U-Turn and head for the exit in the opposite Direction. If you're lucky you will lose the Wanted Level by the End of the Tunnel. Once the Wanted Level is gone, turn around and head back to where the Shootout took place, the EC/Lustered Bright Red Biff will still be there. If so, double drive the Police Stockade and the Biff to the Alderney Safehouse Parking Spot. Once you're there, park the Biff and then continue to finish the Mission like normal. After the Mission is passed, return to check if the EC/Lustered Bright Red Biff is still there.

6.8. EC Black Schafter with EC Black Rims
Mission: Undertaker (Pass)
How to Obtain: It's actually possible getting all five of the Special Vehicles from Undertaker when passing the Mission at the same time, but honestly it's not worth it and it's best to get them one by one in each Save File. Killing Derrick McReary or Francis McReary during Blood Brothers won't affect the Special Vehicles seen in the Mission Undertaker, nor the Method of obtaining them, so don't worry about it. About this EC Black Schafter with EC Black Rims, you can actually duplicate it from the EC/Lustered Black Schafter with EC Black Rims from Easy as Can Be. This Schafter, which isn't Lustered, in Undertaker has a Silver Stone Poly Luster which is Set and not Random at all, which you can actually get from the Lustered one in Easy as Can Be if you reload enough times, but honestly for the Easy as Can Be Schafter it's wiser to get a Luster which is Special and Visibly Colorful. To obtain it, start the Mission Undertaker while waiting for Packie's Phone Call after Blood Brother, get a Suit and go to the Church. After the Cutscene, some Albanians will show up and there'll be a Shootout Scene. Around the Area you will see this EC Black Schafter with EC Black Rims, EC/Lustered Red Primo, Lustered Blue Primo, EC Black Washington and Unique Romero. Do the Shootout Part like normal making sure that none of the Vehicles get blown up. Also make sure not to get a Wanted Level as that will ruin your progress. Once you've done it, you will be instructed to get in the Romero with Packie. The Washingtons have driven away but you will be able to get them later on during the Mission. Now, what you'll need to do is quadruple drive the Romero, both Primos and the right Schafter to a Parking Spot, park two of them there, then double drive the Romero and the final Special Vehicle to another Parking Spot, leaving the third one there. This sounds easy but it's actually painfully difficult, especially as you need to keep the Camera on all Vehicles at all times, plus you can't drive too far away from the Romero as the Mission will fail if you do so. Also, you need to make sure that the Blue Primo has a Special Luster, as sometimes it won't be Special. If you want to only get the EC Black Schafter with EC Black Rims, just double drive it with the Romero to a Parking Spot once you're instructed to get in the Romero, then leaving it there. Again, you can't drive too far away from the Romero as then the Mission will fail. While double driving or pushing the Vehicles there'll be some Albanians coming in a random Schafter, which will make the Back Doors on the Romero open, kill them but make sure not to get a Wanted Level. I suggest pushing the Romero using the Vehicle that you're double or quadruple driving to prevent the Albianians from making huge damage towards your progress. Once the EC Black Schafter with EC Black Rims is secured at a Parking Spot, get in the Romero and drive to the Cemetery to finish and pass the Mission. After passing the Mission, you will have the chance to get the Unique Romero and/or the EC Black Washington, which are explained in the entries 7.1. and 7.2. Once the Mission is passed, check on the EC Black Schafter with EC Black Rims to see that it's secured and stored at the Parking Spot, also do the same for the Primos. If you actually got all five Special Vehicles while passing the Mission Undertaker, congratulations as this is one of the hardest tasks in IV to accomplish.

6.9. EC/Lustered Red Primo (with EC Gold Details)
Mission: Undertaker (Pass)
How to Obtain: Check 6.8. to know how to get all five Special Vehicles from Undertaker while passing the Mission at the same time, or to know how to get the EC/Lustered Red Primo alone as it's the same Method as getting the EC Black Schafter with EC Black Rims alone. This Red Primo is actually EC, so any Luster that you get is Special on it. However, if you get the Blaze Red Luster, then it'll only differ to the Bottom Body Color compared to one in Traffic, that Luster is still Special but I suggest getting another one. Also, interestingly, this Primo can have EC Gold Details. Because this Primo is Lustered, it also has a Random Color 4, which can either be Very White or Taxi Yellow. If you get the Taxi Yellow Color 4, then you'll have the EC Gold Details, but if you get the Very White Color 4, then the White Details won't be EC. All Lusters are Special if you get the EC Gold Details on this Primo. The Details include the Rims, Window Sidings, Grill, Door Handles and Exhausts on the Primo, so it's nice to have them EC too, though you'll need to reload and retry the Mission a lot of times to get the EC Gold Details on it.

7.0. Lustered Blue Primo (with EC Gold Details)
Mission: Undertaker (Pass)
How to Obtain: Check 6.8. to know how to get all five Special Vehicles from Undertaker while passing the Mission at the same time, or to know how to get the Lustered Blue Primo alone as it's the same Method as getting the EC Black Schafter with EC Black Rims alone. This Blue Primo is not EC, so a Luster that you can get on it is not Special on it, and that Luster is the Jasper Green Poly Luster. So if you get the Jasper Green Poly Luster, then your Primo is not Special and is the same as one from Traffic. Avoid the Jasper Green Poly Luster on the Blue Primo at all costs. Also, if you get the Striking Blue Luster, which actually is Special, then compared to one Primo in Traffic, it will only differ by the Bottom Area Color, so that Luster is the least Special one. Just get any other Luster than the Jasper Green Poly one. Also, interestingly, this Primo can have EC Gold Details. Because this Primo is Lustered, it also has a Random Color 4, which can either be Very White or Taxi Yellow. If you get the Taxi Yellow Color 4, then you'll have the EC Gold Details, but if you get the Very White Color 4, then the White Details won't be EC. All Lusters are Special if you get the EC Gold Details on this Primo. The Details include the Rims, Window Sidings, Grill, Door Handles and Exhausts on the Primo, so it's nice to have them EC too, though you'll need to reload and retry the Mission a lot of times to get the EC Gold Details on it. I suggest getting the EC Gold Details on the Blue Primo to surely and accurately know that the Blue Primo will have a Special Luster and that the Vehicle will be Special.

7.1. Unique Romero
Mission: Undertaker (Pass)
How to Obtain: Once you pass the Mission Undertaker, either Derrick's or Francis' Funeral, you will see the Unique Romero and two EC Black Washingtons drive off. To obtain it, simply run ahead of the Unique Romero where it will drive towards, and make it stop by standing in front of it, then simply get in the Unique Romero by getting in it. You can also shoot and kill the Driver so it will stop, though it's not needed. It's simple to get anyways. Once you get in it, drive it at a Safehouse Parking Spot and store it there. Also, despite this being a Unique Vehicle, you might see some Romeros driving in Traffic, but only if you're driving or have driven one lately. You will never see the Romero normally in Traffic other than you driving it, so it's still a Unique Vehicle.

Video by Lethal Vaccine


7.2. EC Black Washington (1 of 3)
Mission: Undertaker (Pass)
How to Obtain: This EC Black Washington is barely Special, it has a Silver Stone Poly Luster which is Set and not Random. The Luster is Special and makes the Washington EC, though the Black Body Color on the Washington can be found in Traffic and the Black Body Color alone is not EC at all. Despite the Luster making this Washington EC, compared to the Traffic Black Washington, the Lusters will be barelly different, though they are different, but the human eye can't really see a difference between it because the Luster Colors are similar and because the Lusters are hard to compare. The Traffic Black Washington has an Astra Silver Poly Luster though. So it's your choice to get it or not. To obtain it, it's the same Method as with the Unique Romero, after passing Undertaker, walk up to one of the EC Black Washingtons, make it stop by standing in front of it and simply get in it, or just shoot and kill the Driver if it's necessary, then get in it and park it at a Parking Spot. You can actually get both the Unique Romero and the EC Black Washington using this same technique, though for the other you'll need to stop it with the Vehicle, get in the other and then double drive them to a Safehouse Parking Spot.

7.3. EC/Lustered Silver Comet
Mission: Hating the Haters (Pass)
How to Obtain: This is a EC Silver Body Color Comet with a Special Random Luster which looks quite nice. All Lusters are Special, but I suggest getting the Red Lusters which look awesome on this Comet. To obtain it, start the Mission Hating the Haters for Bernie/Florian, after the Cutscene turn left and you'll see this EC/Lustered Silver Comet parked there on the Road. Get in it and take it to a Safehouse Parking Spot and store it there. If you don't get a Luster that you want, reload and restart the Mission again. After you've parked it on the Parking Spot, get to Middle Park with Bernie, follow him and then kill the Hater harrassing Bernie, then take Bernie to Perseus to pass the Mission like how you normally would. After the Mission has been passed, drive back to the Parking Spot to check if the EC/Lustered Silver Comet is secured and stored. Simple as that.

Video by Lethal Vaccine


7.4. Lustered Black SuperGT
Mission: Union Drive (Pass)
How to Obtain: This SuperGT has a Black Body Color and Random Luster applied on it. However, not all Lusters are Special on it, if you get the Light Ivory or Torch Green Lusters on this SuperGT, then it's not Special at all and identical to some SuperGT's in Traffic. You'll recognize these Lusters by its Green or by its Light Brown Color. Avoid these two Torch Green or Light Ivory Lusters on the SuperGT at all costs and get any other Luster. If you get those, reload and redo the Mission again until the SuperGT gets a Special Luster. There are some nice Red and Blue Lusters which can spawn on it which are Special. To obtain it, start the Mission Union Drive, get in the nearby Turismo and drive with Bernie to Northwood. After the Cutscene, follow the Russian Blackmailers to the Location when they get out of the SuperGT at south of Algonquin. When they get out, kill them and then get back in the Vehicle that Bernie is in. Now get back out so Bernie follows you and get into the Lustered Black SuperGT. Drive Bernie home to finish the Mission and once passed, just drive the Lustered Black SuperGT back to a Parking Spot and store it there.

7.5. EC Red and White Maverick
Mission: Buoys Ahoy (Fail)
How to Obtain: This is the hardest Special Vehicle to obtain in IV, probably on pair with the EC White and Black Maverick when it comes to difficulty. It has a EC Red Body Color with EC White/Silver Stripes on it. There is a Traffic Red and White Maverick, but the Colors are different which still makes this EC Red and White Maverick Special and EC. Before obtaining it, you will need a Rocket Launcher and a Weapon like an SMG or Carbine Rifle. You can find a Rocket Launcher on a small Rock Island north of Algonquin. Also, before getting it, you might want to have a heavy pushing Vehicle in your Hove Beach Parking Spot. To obtain this EC Red and White Maverick, start the Mission Buoys Ahoy. After the Cutscene, get out of the Tropic and select the Rocket Launcher, then get back in the Tropic and sail to the Location at Hove Beach as instructed. After the Cutscene, change Dimitri's Goons until you see a EC Red and White Maverick in the Sky, once you see it, stop chasing the Goons and turn right. Now this is the main moment in the whole obtaining Procedure, accelerate a bit forward towards Broker, then get out of the Tropic quickly and aim exactly at the Location by the Buildings in Hove Beach just as soon as you fail the Mission from losing the Russians, then immediately get a SMG or Carbine Rifle and kill Bernie in the Tropic. Then, quickly run towards the Stairs and up to the Streets and somewhere around the Location you should be able to see this EC Red and White Maverick, either as a Wreck or normally. Most of the time, you wouldn't hit the Maverick with the Rocket Launcher, thus it will fly up into the Sky once the Mission has failed, but sometimes you should hit it and it will fall down on the Street in Hove Beach. If you hit it, you would also get a Wanted Level, so I suggest calling Francis or Kiki, once you unlocked her Special Ability, to lose the Wanted Level. If the EC Maverick is a Wreck, you will need to use the Phone Replay from Buoys Ahoy to obtain it, but if it's not a Wreck, then you don't need to use any Phone Replay. If it's not a Wreck, just get into it and fly it to a Safehouse Parking Spot and store it, though be careful as it would be damaged from the Rocket you've shot at it. If it's a Wreck, get a Pushing Vehicle from Traffic and push it to the Hove Beach Parking Spot nearby. Once you're near it, line up the Maverick Wreck near the Parking Spot, take out your Phone Message asking you to Replay Buoys Ahoy, then push the Maverick Wreck onto the Parking Spot Zone and once it's there, accept the Phone Replay immediately. The reason why you need to use a Phone Replay is because Niko has to teleport away from the Parking Spot when a Wreck is on it, because if he doesn't, then the Wreck would vanish very quickly and suddenly. Once you've accepted the Phone Replay, pass Buoys Ahoy, then go to the Hove Beach Safehouse Parking Spot and check on the EC Red and White Maverick. Getting it is very luck based and it requires very good timing and aiming of the Rocket Launcher Shot, so good luck. If you got it, congratulations, as this is one of the hardest Special Vehicles to get in IV. Make note, Bernie's Tropic in the Mission is actually a EC Blue and Beige Tropic, and the Russian's Squalo is actually a EC Red and White Squalo, but Boats can't be saved in the Parking Spots to they're unobtainable.

7.6. EC Orange and Black Infernus
Mission: Buoys Ahoy (Pass)
How to Obtain: After passing Buoys Ahoy, Bernie will call you and let you know about Bryce Dawkins' Infernus that is given to you as a present for all the help you gave him. Bernie's Mission Icon on the Map will appear and that is where you go to get it. Simply drive to the Location and take the EC Orange and Black Infernus back to a Parking Spot and store it there. Randomly, atleast on the PC Version, this EC Infernus will be Yellow and Black, but sometimes Orange and Black, so to get the Colors you want you'd have to reload the Game. Make note that you can actually leave the EC Infernus there forever. You don't have to claim it and it'll remain there as well as the Icon on the Map. Since there is only 10 Spaces in total to store Special Vehicles in GTA IV, it might be best to leave this one there. You can always go and use it and then reload your Save, thus keeping it there while allowing 10 other Special Vehicles to be parked in front of the 5 Safehouses and ultimately having 11 Special Vehicles in your possession instead of 10. Though I wouldn't do that because a Radar with no Icons looks the best, and besides, if you get it you can make this into a AP/EC Orange and Black Infernus using the AP Conversion and you'll need to store it at a Parking Spot in AP Form.

7.7. EC Yellow and Black Infernus
Mission: Buoys Ahoy (Pass)
How to Obtain: After passing Buoys Ahoy, Bernie will call you and let you know about Bryce Dawkins' Infernus that is given to you as a present for all the help you gave him. Bernie's Mission Icon on the Map will appear and that is where you go to get it. Simply drive to the Location and take the EC Yellow and Black Infernus back to a Parking Spot and store it there. This seems to be a PC only Special Vehicle in GTA IV. Randomly, this EC Infernus will be Orange and Black, but sometimes Yellow and Black, so to get the Colors you want you'd have to reload the Game. Make note that you can actually leave the EC Infernus there forever. You don't have to claim it and it'll remain there as well as the Icon on the Map. Since there is only 10 Spaces in total to store Special Vehicles in GTA IV, it might be best to leave this one there. You can always go and use it and then reload your Save, thus keeping it there while allowing 10 other Special Vehicles to be parked in front of the 5 Safehouses and ultimately having 11 Special Vehicles in your possession instead of 10. Though I wouldn't do that because a Radar with no Icons looks the best, and besides, if you get it you can make this into a AP/EC Yellow and Black Infernus using the AP Conversion and you'll need to store it at a Parking Spot in AP Form.

7.8. EC/Lustered Pink Feltzer
Mission: I'll Take Her (Pass)
How to Obtain: This is Gracie's Feltzer which is EC Pink and has a Random Luster applied on it. It always seems to spawn without the Roof in IV, though this same Feltzer in TBoGT can spawn with or without a Roof. It always has a Special Luster applied on it because it's a EC Vehicle. To obtain it, start the Mission I'll Take Her, view the Feltzer on the Website as instructed and then call the Mob Daughter between 8 and 20 o'clock during the day to activate the second Part of the Mission. Once you're inside the EC/Lustered Pink Feltzer, drive it to the Destination as instructed to pass the Mission. At the very end of the Mission once it's passed, you will see the EC/Lustered Feltzer drive off. If you're quick enough to get out a Gun, you can simply just shoot Stevie as he drives off and then claim the Vehicle as your own and take it back to a Parking Spot. You can also just run to the Door and get in it quickly as you see in the Video. Alternatively, as you pull into the Alleyway at the end of the Mission and the Yellow Marker appears, you are free to get out of the EC/Lustered Pink Feltzer at this time without failing the Mission. Go find a large Truck and block the Alleyway so the Driver in the Feltzer at the end can't get through. Get back in the Feltzer at this point and drive into the Yellow Arrow to finish the Mission. At the end, the Guy in the EC/Lustered Pink Feltzer will drive right into your Roadblock and you can simply run on Foot up to the Feltzer and jack it from him and then take it to a Safehouse Parking Spot.

7.9. Lustered Black Mafia Sentinel with EC Black Rims (1 of 2)
Mission: She's a Keeper (Fail)
How to Obtain: You can obtain both this Lustered Black Mafia Sentinel with EC Black Rims and the Lustered Black Mafia PMP 600 while failing the Mission She's a Keeper only once instead of twice for each Vehicle. This Mafia Sentinel is Black Body Color which isn't Special and has a Random Luster applied to it, plus it has EC Black Rims, whereas the Traffic Mafia Sentinels have Dark Grey Rims. Be careful of the Lusteres on this Vehicle and on the Mafia PMP 600, though all Lusters are Special on the Mafia Sentinel because it's a EC Vehicle for its EC Black Rims. Though if you get the Torch Green Luster, then it will only differ compared to the Traffic Mafia Sentinels by the Rims Color, and if you get the Black Poly Luster, then it will differ by the Rims Color too, compared to the Mafia Sentinels from Traffic driven in Pay and Spray. So avoid the Torch Green and Black Poly Lusters, though they are Special, they're not very fascinating, as you can get better and more Special and Colorful Lusters on this Mafia Sentinel, for example a Red or Blue Luster which would always be Special. To obtain both of them at the same time, start the Mission She's a Keeper and drive to the Destination and get in the Vincent. After the Cutscene, drive to the Intersection in Alderney seen in the Video, you will be chased by these Lustered Black Mafia Sentinels with EC Black Rims and Lustered Black Mafia PMP 600s. Simply drive by the Drivers and Passengers of them. If you get a Wanted Level, lose it. Once they Enemies are taken care of, get in the Sentinel or PMP 600 and double drive them back to the Alderney Safehouse Parking Spot. Double drive them or push one with the other, do what you prefer, but get both of them at the Parking Spot. While double driving them there, you will fail the Mission for abandoning the Vincent. Once you get the PMP 600 and Sentinel to the Parking Spot, store them there, but make sure all the Dead Bodies are out of the Vehicles, because Parking Spots don't accept Vehicles with Dead Bodies inside them. Do E-Brakes to get rid of the Bodies in the Vehicles. Once there are no Dead Bodies inside them, park them in the Parking Spot and store them there. Make note that you can't get them with Pass, if you would do it by triple driving them with the Vincent and then take it to the Destination in Algonquin, the Vehicles at the Alderney Parking Spot would disappear. Also, this is the first Lustered Black Mafia Sentinel with EC Black Rims in the Story, the second one can only be obtained from the Revenge Ending. I suggest getting the one from the Revenge Ending Mission Out of Commission since that one can be obtained with a Mission Pass, while the one from She's a Keeper can only be obtained with Mission Failure.

8.0. Lustered Black Mafia PMP 600 (1 of 2)
Mission: She's a Keeper (Fail)
How to Obtain: Check 7.9. to know how to get the Lustered Black Mafia Sentinel with EC Black Rims along with the Lustered Black Mafia PMP 600 with failing the Mission She's a Keeper once. Be very careful about the Lusters that can spawn on this Mafia PMP 600 because sometimes the Luster won't be Special at all. These Non-Special Lusters are the Currant Red Solid, Black and Nassau Blue Poly Lusters. If you get these Lusters, then the Mafia PMP 600 won't be Special. Avoid these Lusters at any cost and try to get the other Special Lusters instead. Try to get a Green Luster as then you'll know for sure that it'll be a Special Luster. This Lustered Black Mafia PMP 600 doesn't have a Hybrid Grill, but a normal Mafia Grill found on Traffic Mafia PMP 600s though. I suggest getting the other Lustered Black Mafia PMP 600 from Payback as the one from Payback can be obtained with passing the Mission, whereas this one from She's a Keeper needs a Failure.

8.1. Lustered Dark Green Vincent with EC Dark Green Rims (1 of 2)
Mission: She's a Keeper (Pass)
How to Obtain: This Vincent has a Traffic Dark Green Body Color, but has EC Dark Green Rims, plus a Random Luster applied on it every time when you start the Mission. All Lusters on it are Special because the Vehicle is EC from the Rims, but if you'd get the Bright Blue Poly Luster, then compared to a Vincent in Traffic, they would only differ in the Rims Color. It would still be Special, so don't worry which Luster you get, any is okay. To obtain it is simple, start the Mission She's a Keeper and then drive to Gordon's Place and get in the Vincent as instructed. Now, drive to the Destination in North Algonquin, but make sure that you avoid the Mafia Sentinels and Mafia PMP 600's and that you avoid crashing the Vincent. Get to the Yellow Marker without damaging the Lustered Dark Green Vincent with EC Dark Green Rims, because otherwise when you'd get there, you'd fail the Mission because Gracie died in the Trunk. Once you're there without a lot of damage and the Mission has been passed, turn around and get in the Lustered Dark Green Vincent with EC Dark Green Rims and park it at any Safehouse Parking Spot. Simple.

8.2. Lustered Black Vincent with EC Black Rims
Mission: Diamonds are a Girl's Best Friend (Fail)
How to Obtain: This is a Vincent with a Black Body Color which isn't Special and has EC Black Rims which are Special, it also has a Random Luster applied on it. It requires a Mission Failure. All Lusters on it are Special because Vehicle has Special EC Black Rims, though if you get the Black Poly or Cabernet Red Poly Lusters, then compared to some Black Vincents in Traffic, it would only differ by the Rims Color, though the Lusters still make the Vehicle Special. I suggest aiming for some other Lusters which are more Special and look nicer. To obtain it, start the Mission Diamonds are a Girl's Best Friend and drive to the Location where the Dark Green Vincent is. Once there, only kill Gracie or only kill Packie, but not both. Killing one of them will trigger a Failure Cutscene where you'll be sitting inside this Lustered Black Vincent with EC Black Rims. If you killed Gracie, then you will be taken to Dukes. If you killed Packie, then you will be taken to Alderney. After the Mission has failed, drive to a Parking Spot and store the Lustered Black Vincent with EC Black Rims there. Simple.

8.3. Lustered Dark Green Vincent with EC Dark Green Rims (2 of 2)
Mission: Diamonds are a Girl's Best Friend (Pass)
How to Obtain: This Vincent has a Traffic Dark Green Body Color, but has EC Dark Green Rims, plus a Random Luster applied on it every time when you start the Mission. All Lusters on it are Special because the Vehicle is EC from the Rims, but if you'd get the Bright Blue Poly Luster, then compared to a Vincent in Traffic, they would only differ in the Rims Color. It would still be Special, so don't worry which Luster you get, any is okay. It's completely the same one as the one from She's a Keeper, so getting any is fine as they both can be obtained with passing the Mission. To obtain it, start the Mission Diamonds are a Girl's Best Friend and simply do the Mission like how you normally would, so drive Packie and Gracie to Charge Island and do the Shootout with Bulgarin's Gang Members like how you normally would. But after the Shootout Part is done, walk back to where the Lustered Dark Green Vincent with EC Dark Green Rims is parked. Simply get in it and drive Packie home to his Ma's House in Dukes. After the Mission has been passed, store this Vincent at a Safehouse Parking Spot and store it there.

8.4. EC/Lustered Black Bobcat
Mission: Truck Hustle (Fail)
How to Obtain: You can actually obtain all three EC/Lustered Black Bobcat, EC/Lustered Light Silver Pony and Lustered Dark Silver Pony at the same time while failing the Mission Truck Hustle only once, instead of three times. Though it's not worth it because it's a huge hassle, and because there's a big chance that the Lustered Dark Silver Pony is not Special because of the Lusters that it gets. I suggest obtaining one at a time for each Save File. This Bobcat has a EC Black Body Color which is Special and a Random Luster applied to it, the Luster will always be Special because the Bobcat is EC, though I highly advice you to obtain a Luster that is nice, visible and colored, for example a Light Blue or Light Brown Luster. To obtain it, start the Mission Truck Hustle for Phil Bell and go to the Location as instructed. You may want to get a pushing Vehicle for this quest and park it at the grassy area nearby before getting into the Yellow Marker. After the Cutscene you will see two of these EC/Lustered Black Bobcats there, along with the EC/Lustered Light Silver Pony on your left, and the Lustered Dark Silver Pony on your right. Now, what you want to do is shoot and kill as many Enemies as you can, a randomly colored Bobcat will appear. Just kill as many Guys as you can, then get in the Bobcat and start pushing the EC/Lustered Black Bobcat to the Alderney Safehouse Parking Spot. Keep pushing it to there and avoid Police Attention as they can ruin your progress. While pushing the Bobcat, the Mission will fail for abandoning the Place, which is completely normal and has to happen. Once you finally get to the Parking Spot, leave the EC/Lustered Black Bobcat there and then drive around the Block and come back, the Bobcat will be unlocked and repaired. If you want to get all these three Vehicles at once, do the same, but you'll have to push all three Vehicles to the Parking Spots, leave two at the Alderney Safehouse Parking Spot, and then push the third to a Parking Spot in Algonquin, making sure that the Dark Silver Pony has a Special Luster applied on it, which is explained in the later Entries.

8.5. EC/Lustered Light Silver Pony
Mission: Truck Hustle (Fail)
How to Obtain: Check out 8.4. to know how to get all three EC/Lustered Black Bobcat, EC/Lustered Light Silver Pony and Lustered Dark Silver Pony at the same time, or if you want to get the EC/Lustered Light Silver Pony alone only, because it's the same exact Method to obtain this Vehicle. The EC/Lustered Light Silver Pony is the Pony on your left once you entered the Yellow Marker and are in the Cover. Because this Pony has a EC Light Silver Body Color, all of its Lusters are Special, though there's a 8 out of 11 chance that the Luster will be an Astra Silver Poly Luster which is barely Visible, 3 out of 11 chance that it will be a Wild Strawberry Poly or Alabaster Solid or Saxony Blue Poly Luster. I suggest getting these rarer Lusters as they look nicer, though for the Lustered Dark Silver Pony you need to be extra very careful because the Astra Silver Poly Luster is not Special on that one. The Variant and Livery on the Pony are Random.

8.6. Lustered Dark Silver Pony
Mission: Truck Hustle (Fail)
How to Obtain: Check out 8.4. to know how to get all three EC/Lustered Black Bobcat, EC/Lustered Light Silver Pony and Lustered Dark Silver Pony at the same time, or if you want to get the Lustered Dark Silver Pony alone only, because it's the same exact Method to obtain this Vehicle. The Lustered Dark Silver Pony is the Pony on your right once you entered the Yellow Marker and are in the Cover. Because this Pony has a Dark Silver Body Color which is not EC, some of its Lusters won't be Special at all. There's a 8 out of 11 chance that the Luster will be an Astra Silver Poly Luster which is barely Visible and is not Special at all. But there is a 3 out of 11 chance that it will be a Wild Strawberry Poly or Alabaster Solid or Saxony Blue Poly Luster, which are the only Special Lusters on this Lustered Dark Silver Pony. Avoid the Astra Silver Poly Luster on this Pony at all costs, because that Pony won't be Special and it will be identical to one Pony in Traffic. The Variant and Livery on the Pony are Random.

8.7. EC/Lustered Black Schafter with EC Black Rims (2 of 2)
Mission: Pegorino's Pride (Fail)
How to Obtain: This is a Schafter with a Black Body Color, which is EC only on Civilian Schafters. You can't get a Black Body Color on Non-Russian Schafters in IV, so it's EC. It also has EC Black Rims which are Special or any kind of Schafter, and it also has a Random Luster applied on it. Of course, all Lusters are Special on it because it's a EC Vehicle and has EC Rims. Though if you get a Black Poly Luster, then it will differ compared to the Traffic Russian Schafters only by the Rim Color, and the different Variant obviously. I suggest getting a Luster which looks nicer and more colorful. Also, you can get this exact same Schafter in Easy as Can Be with passing the Mission, but here in Pegorino's Pride you need to obtain it with a Failure. So I advice you to get the one from Easy as Can Be. If you want this one however, start Pegorino's Pride and get in the EC/Lustered Black Schafter with EC Black Rims, then drive-by shoot and kill Jimmy Pegorino to fail the Mission. Pegorino's Bodyguards Peter and Marco will get out of the Schafter, now just drive this EC/Lustered Black Schafter with EC Black Rims back to a Safehouse Parking Spot and store it there. Simple.

Video by Lethal Vaccine


8.8. EC/Lustered Silver Sultan
Mission: Pegorino's Pride (Pass)
How to Obtain: This Sultan has a EC Body Color which is Light Silver and almost looks White, it also has a Random Luster applied on it. Because the Vehicle is EC, any Luster that you get on it will be Special. I suggest getting a Red Luster on it as it's Special and Red Lusters look very nice on these Silver Vehicles. To obtain it, start the Mission Pegorino's Pride, drive Pegorino, Marco and Peter to the Location as instructed, go to the Roof, then do the Sniper and Shootout Scene like normally. Once you get to Pegorino who will be wounded at this Stage, follow the Pavanos in the EC/Lustered Silver Sultan as instructed and wait for them to get out. Once they get out at a certain Location in the Industrial Park, kill them and retrieve the Money. Get into Pegorino's Schafter, wait a second inside it, then get into the EC/Lustered Silver Sultan, if you do that, Pegorino will get in with you in the Sultan. Drive the Sultan with Pegorino to his Mansion in Westdyke. Once you get there, don't enter the Yellow Marker with the Sultan, instead park it nearby and walk up on Foot to the Yellow Marker with Pegorino to prevent the Sultan from vanishing. Once the Mission has passed, get into the EC/Lustered Silver Sultan and drive it to a Safehouse Parking Spot and store it there. Simple.

8.9. Lustered Black Mafia PMP 600 (2 of 2)
Mission: Payback (Pass)
How to Obtain: You can obtain both this Lustered Black Mafia PMP 600 with the Lustered Black Coquette at the same time while passing the Mission Payback. Be very careful about the Lusters that can spawn on this Mafia PMP 600 because sometimes the Luster won't be Special at all. These Non-Special Lusters are the Currant Red Solid, Black and Nassau Blue Poly Lusters. If you get these Lusters, then the Mafia PMP 600 won't be Special. Avoid these Lusters at any cost and try to get the other Special Lusters instead. Try to get a Green Luster as then you'll know for sure that it'll be a Special Luster. This Lustered Black Mafia PMP 600 doesn't have a Hybrid Grill, but a normal Mafia Grill found on Traffic Mafia PMP 600s though. To obtain it, start the Mission Payback and this Lustered Black Mafia PMP 600 will be provided there for you in Pegorino's Driveway. Before continuing with the Mission, take it and park it at a Safehouse Parking Spot and store it there. Now, get a Random Vehicle and go to the Yellow Marker to initiate a Chase Scene with the Pavanos which will be driving this Lustered Black Coquette. Simply follow them until they're at Auto Eroticar, you will realize some Scripted Traffic on the way too. Once they get to Auto Eroticar, simply kill everyone making sure that the Lustered Black Coquette isn't blown up. Once everyone is dead, get in the Lustered Black Coquette and drive it to the Parking Spot at a Safehouse where you put the Lustered Black Mafia PMP 600 once the Mission was passed. Once you checked on the PMP 600 still being there, store the Coquette. Simple, also be very careful for the Lusters that spawn on the Lustered Black Coquette which are explained in the next Entry.

9.0. Lustered Black Coquette
Mission: Payback (Pass)
How to Obtain: Check 8.9. to know how to obtain both the Lustered Black Mafia PMP 600 and the Lustered Black Coquette at the same time while passing the Mission Payback. Be very, very careful about the Lusters that spawn on this Lustered Black Coquette. Avoid the Torch Green Luster on the Coquette as that one won't make the Coquette Special in any way. Just avoid any Green Lusters that spawn on the Coquette, if it happens, reload and redo the Mission again until a nice and Special Luster has spawned on this Lustered Black Coquette. You can get nice Special Red, Beige, Yellow and Blue Lusters on it. Some Green Lusters may be Special on it, but I suggest avoiding the Green Lusters so that you won't get the Non-Special Torch Green Luster accidently. To get it, do the Mission until the Pavanos in the Coquette have stopped at Auto Eroticar, kill them all, then take this Lustered Black Coquette as a prize and simply store it at a Parking Spot.

9.1. EC Black Washington (2 of 3)
Mission: To Live and Die in Alderney (Fail)
How to Obtain: This EC Black Washington is barely Special, it has a Silver Stone Poly Luster which is Set and not Random. The Luster is Special and makes the Washington EC, though the Black Body Color on the Washington can be found in Traffic and the Black Body Color alone is not EC at all. Despite the Luster making this Washington EC, compared to the Traffic Black Washington, the Lusters will be barelly different, though they are different, but the human eye can't really see a difference between it because the Luster Colors are similar and because the Lusters are hard to compare. The Traffic Black Washington has an Astra Silver Poly Luster though. So it's your choice to get it or not. This one needs a Mission Failure, but you can simply get this same EC Black Washington from Undertaker with Pass or from Stevie's Car Thefts. To get this one from To Live and Die in Alderney, start the Mission and drive with Phil Bell to the Abandoned House in North Alderney. Once you get there, a Cutscene will play and after the Cutscene, drive the other way from where Phil Bell is going. If you do that, Phil will get busted by the Feds and the Mission will fail. A Fail Cutscene will play where Niko drops off Frankie, then you can simply take this EC Black Washington to a Parking Spot and store it. Like already said, this Vehicle is barely Special to the human eye, but it still is Special, though it's not needed to obtain it from this particular Mission as you need to fail it to get it.

9.2. EC/Lustered White Oracle
Mission: Pest Control (Pass)
How to Obtain: You can actually obtain this EC/Lustered White Oracle and the Hybrid/Lustered Black Mafia PMP 600 at the same time while passing Pest Control. This White Oracle has a EC Body Color and has a Special Random Luster on it. The Luster will always be Special as the Oracle is EC. This is Ray's Oracle which he used at the beginning of the Mission Truck Hustle, where his Oracle was actually in AP Form, but unobtainable. Now you can obtain this one from Pest Control and make it AP using the Conversion, thus it'll be the same AP/EC/Lustered White Oracle from Truck Hustle. To obtain the Oracle and PMP 600, start the Mission Pest Control and wait for Pegorino to call you to activate the second Part of the Mission. Once he calls you, accept his Call and drive to the Yellow Marker as instructed. In the Cutscene you will see this EC/Lustered White Oracle and the Hybrid/Lustered Black Mafia PMP 600. To obtain them both, follow them and quickly shoot and kill the Drivers of the Oracle and PMP 600, then kill all Passengers including Ray Boccino to pass the Mission. With some luck, you will pass the Mission and have both the Oracle and PMP 600 on the Road intact. You can also wait until they get to the Gas Station and stop, then kill them all, but make sure that the Oracle and PMP 600 don't get blown up in the process. Once you get both Vehicles not blown up on the Road and once you passed the Mission, double drive the EC/Lustered White Oracle and the Hybrid/Lustered Black Mafia PMP 600 to a Safehouse Parking Spot. Though, make absolutely sure that the Dead Passengers in the Vehicles are out of the Vehicle, since Parking Spots won't save Vehicles with Dead Bodies in them. Simply drive quickly or do E-Brakes until the Dead Bodies fall out of the Vehicles, making sure that you don't drive away from the other Special Vehicle that you're double driving so it doesn't vanish. Once you got them to a Parking Spot with no Dead Bodies in the Vehicles, simply store them there and it's done. Make sure that the Luster on the PMP 600 is Special, which is explained in the next entry. If you only want one of the Vehicles and not both of them at the same time, just kill all Enemies keeping the Vehicle you want intact, ignoring the other Vehicle that you don't want, then get in it once the Mission gets passed and drive it to a Safehouse Parking Spot to store it there, making sure that the Dead Bodies are out of the Vehicle.

9.3. Hybrid/Lustered Black Mafia PMP 600 (1 of 2)
Mission: Pest Control (Pass)
How to Obtain: Check 9.2. to know how to get both the EC/Lustered White Oracle and Hybrid/Lustered Black Mafia PMP 600 at the same time while passing the Mission Pest Control, or if you want to know how to only get one of those Vehicles with passing the Mission. Be very careful about the Lusters that can spawn on this Mafia PMP 600 because sometimes the Luster won't be Special at all. These Non-Special Lusters are the Currant Red Solid, Black and Nassau Blue Poly Lusters. If you get these Lusters, then the Mafia PMP 600 won't have a Special Luster. Avoid these Lusters at any cost and try to get the other Special Lusters instead. Try to get a Green Luster as then you'll know for sure that it'll be a Special Luster. This Lustered Black Mafia PMP 600 also has a Hybrid Grill, which means that it has both the Civilian Grill and Mafia Grill together. However, the Non-Special Luster still make the Vehicle Special because it has Special Hybrid Grills, but I suggest not getting the Non-Special Luster as then the Vehicle won't be Special-Lustered and will be less Special. Avoid those Lusters that aren't Special. Also, I highly suggest getting this Hybrid/Lustered Black Mafia PMP 600, than the one from the Revenge Ending, as this one from Pest Control can be obtained with a Mission Pass.

9.4. Lustered Black Lokus
Mission: Entourage (Pass)
How to Obtain: This is a Lokus with a Black Body Color which is not EC and has a Random Luster applied to it. Avoid the Silver Stone Poly Luster on it, as that Luster won't make this Lokus Special in any way. Avoid that Luster at all costs. Get any nice and Colored Luster on it and you'll know for sure that it'll be Special, you can get a nice Red, Green, Blue or Brown Luster on it which all are Special. To obtain it, start the Mission Entourage for Jon Gravelli, then go to where Bobby Jefferson is as instructed. You will see three of those Lustered Black Lokuses. Now get in the Lokus and follow the Convoy and do the Shootout Part like normal protecting Booby Jefferson. An Enemy with a Rocket Launcher will blow up one of those Lokuses. Once all Enemies are dead, get in one of the Lustered Lokuses, I suggest getting in the one with a nicer Luster. Now, avoid the Enemies and drop Jefferson off at the City Hall. The Mission will be passed and you will be driving this Lustered Black Lokus. Drive it to a Safehouse Parking Spot and store it there. Simple.

9.5. EC/Lustered Dark Grey Pony
Mission: Liquidize the Assets (Fail)
How to Obtain: This is one of the recently found Special Vehicles in IV. This is a Pony with a EC Dark Grey Body Color and has a Random and Special Luster applied to it. All Lusters on this Pony are Special because the Vehicle is EC. However, you will have a 8 out of 11 chance that the Luster will be an Astra Silver Poly Luster, which is still Special but doesn't look nice. Other times, the Luster will be Wild Strawberry Poly, Alabaster Solid or Saxony Blue Poly, which look nicer on this EC/Lustered Pony. I suggest getting either the Wild Strawberry Poly or Saxony Blue Poly Lusters on this Pony as they look the nicest and look colored. Also, make note that the Variant and Livery will be Random on these Ponies. To obtain it, start the Mission Liquidize the Assets for Gravelli and drive to the Location in Alderney as instructed. Once you get there, jump over the Gate and kill some nearby Enemies, then get in a nearby EC/Lustered Dark Grey Pony and drive away. While you drive away from the Location, the Mission will fail, and all you have to do now is take it to a Parking Spot and store it. You will need to reload the Game a few times to get a nice looking Luster on it, but the Method is simple for it. Also, you can't get it with Pass as you're instructed to blow up all the Vans at the Location, thus you need to get it with a Mission Failure.

9.6. EC/Lustered Bright Red Sanchez
Mission: If the Price is Right (Deal) (Pass, Fail if you want to follow the Revenge Ending instead)
How to Obtain: This is a Sanchez with a EC Solid Bright Red Body Color with a Random Luster on it, any Luster you get will be Special so don't worry. The visually nicest Luster that you can get is the Yellow Luster, which looks nice on Red Body Colors. This Special Vehicle is from the Deal Ending Mission Strand, so if you want to do the Revenge Ending, you will need to fail this Mission just for this EC/Lustered Sanchez or EC/Lustered Rancher in the same Mission. To obtain this EC/Lustered Bright Red Sanchez, start If the Price is Right and go to the Docks with Phil Bell, do the Shootout Scene like normal and go to the Office as instructed, then you will be instructed to chase the Enemy in the Mule. Outside of the Warehouse, you will see this EC/Lustered Sanchez along with the Rancher, simply get onto it and chase the Goon in the Mule, kill him and take the Money, then simply drive to the Location using the Sanchez to pass the Mission. After the Mission has been passed, take this EC/Lustered Bright Red Sanchez to a Safehouse Parking Spot and store it. Alternatively, if you're going for the Revenge Ending and you want to fail this Mission, take the Sanchez and then allow the Goon in the Mule to get away which will fail the Mission. Then you can take it back to a Safehouse Parking Spot and store it there.

Video by Lethal Vaccine


9.7. EC/Lustered Black and Silver Rancher
Mission: If the Price is Right (Deal) (Pass, Fail if you want to follow the Revenge Ending instead)
How to Obtain: This is a Rancher with a EC Black and Silver Body Color Combination with a Random Luster on it, any Luster you get will be Special because the Vehicle is EC, so don't worry. Though, the Black Body Color alone is not EC, but the Silver Stripe and the Black and Silver Combination is EC, thus making this Vehicle EC. Because the Black Primary Color is found in Traffic Ranchers, some Lusters will be less Special than others, eventhough all Lusters will make the Rancher Special. If you get the Concord Blue Poly, Silver Stone Poly or Pewter Gray Poly Lusters, then it will only differ with some Ranchers from Traffic only by the Stripe Secondary Body Color on the Rancher. But still, any Luster you get will make the Rancher Special, so again, don't worry about it. This Special Vehicle is from the Deal Ending Mission Strand, so if you want to do the Revenge Ending, you will need to fail this Mission just for this EC/Lustered Rancher or EC/Lustered Sanchez in the same Mission. To obtain this EC/Lustered Black and Silver Rancher, start If the Price is Right and go to the Docks with Phil Bell, do the Shootout Scene like normal and go to the Office as instructed, then you will be instructed to chase the Enemy in the Mule. Outside of the Warehouse, you will see this EC/Lustered Rancher along with the Sanchez, simply get into it and chase the Goon in the Mule, kill him and take the Money, then simply drive to the Location using the Rancher to pass the Mission. After the Mission has been passed, take this EC/Lustered Black and Silver Rancher to a Safehouse Parking Spot and store it. Alternatively, if you're going for the Revenge Ending and you want to fail this Mission, take the Rancher and then allow the Goon in the Mule to get away which will fail the Mission. Then you can take it back to a Safehouse Parking Spot and store it there.

9.8. EC Black and Silver Cognoscenti with White Ribbon
Mission: Mr. & Mrs. Bellic (Deal) (Pass)
How to Obtain: This is Roman's EC Cognoscenti in which you will find parked outside the Church when you arrive for the Mission. It has a Special EC Black and Silver Body Color and a Special Object attached to it, which is a White Ribbon. The White Ribbon is only available on the Deal Wedding. To obtain it, start the Mission Mr. & Mrs. Bellic Deal Ending and drive up to the Wedding carefully without triggering the Cutscene. Use your own Vehicle to push the EC Cognoscenti with White Ribbon away from the Church Cutscene Area. When you get it a Safe Distance around the intersection south of the Church, you can get inside of it and drive it to a Safehouse Parking Spot and park it. Once parked, continue with the Mission like normal and once passed, go immediately where you parked the EC Black and Silver Cognoscenti with White Ribbon to confirm it being there. If you don't do that, then it might disappear without you knowing it. It's a great prize to get, especially for the Special White Ribbon.

9.9. EC Black and Silver Cognoscenti (1 of 2)
Mission: Mr. & Mrs. Bellic (Revenge) (Pass)
How to Obtain: This is Roman's EC Cognoscenti in which you will find parked outside the Church when you arrive for the Mission. It has a Special EC Black and Silver Body Color. However, it doesn't have a White Ribbon in the Revenge Wedding. To obtain it, start the Mission Mr. & Mrs. Bellic Revenge Ending, pick up Kate and drive up to the Wedding carefully without triggering the Cutscene. Use your own Vehicle to push the EC Cognoscenti away from the Church Cutscene Area. When you get it a Safe Distance around the intersection south of the Church, you can get inside of it and drive it to a Safehouse Parking Spot and park it. Once parked, continue with the Mission like normal and once passed, go immediately where you parked the EC Black and Silver Cognoscenti to confirm it being there. If you don't do that, then it might disappear without you knowing it. The White Ribbon Version might be more Special, but the Version without it is still a different Special Vehicle.

10.0. EC Black and Silver Cognoscenti (2 of 2)
Mission: A Revenger's Tragedy (Deal) or Out of Commission (Revenge) (Pass)
How to Obtain: This is the EC Black and Silver Cognoscenti found in the Final Mission in IV, both in Deal and Revenge Endings. Though there it doesn't have the White Ribbon. Still, it's a different Special Vehicle for also not having a White Ribbon and having the EC Body Color Combination together. If you're on A Revenger's Tragedy, the Deal Ending, then you can obtain this EC Cognoscenti, Lustered Huntley Sport with EC Stripe, Hybrid/Lustered Russian Schafter and EC Rims and Lustered Russian Rebla all at once with Mission Pass, which is explained in 10.0. If you're on Out of Commission, the Revenge Ending, then you can obtain this EC Cognoscenti, Lustered Huntley Sport with EC Stripe, Lustered Mafia Sentinel with EC Rims and Hybrid/Lustered PMP 600 all at once with Mission Pass, which is explained in 10.0. To get this EC Black and Silver Cognoscenti, you have to start the Mission, follow the Russian or Mafia Goon all the way to the Abandoned Casino, then once the Cutscene where your Friends escape the Area ends, get in the EC Cognoscenti, drive it a Safehouse Parking Spot and store it there, then go back to the Mission and get the other Vehicles and then complete it, or fail it if you want the Fail Vehicles in the Final Mission. Once the Mission has been done with, go back to the Parking Spot where you stored the EC Cognoscenti to fully assure that it's still there. If you don't check the Vehicles, save and reload, then your Vehicles would most likely vanish, thus it's very important that you check them after you pass or fail the Mission while obtaining these Special Vehicles.

10.1. Lustered Black Huntley Sport with EC Random Stripe
Mission: A Revenger's Tragedy (Deal) or Out of Commission (Revenge) (Pass)
How to Obtain: This is a Black Huntley Sport with a Random Luster applied to it and it has a EC Randomly Colored Stripe along the Vehicle. The Luster and Stripe Colors get chosen in Combination and there's a lot of Special Lusters and Stripes that are possible on this Huntley Sport. However, there are two Huntley Sports which won't be Special. First Non-Special Huntley Sport has a Lt.Beechwood Poly Luster and Black Stripe. You will recognize it for being Fully Black with a Silverish Luster. Second Non-Special Huntley Sport has an Astra Silver Poly Luster and a Garnet Red Poly Stripe. You will recognize it for having a Red Stripe, but not a very visible Luster. Avoid these Huntley Sports at all costs. If they spawn like that, reload the Save File and restart the Mission, as those Huntley Sports would not be Special at all. If you're on A Revenger's Tragedy, the Deal Ending, then you can obtain the EC Cognoscenti, Lustered Huntley Sport with EC Stripe, Hybrid/Lustered Russian Schafter and EC Rims and Lustered Russian Rebla all at once with Mission Pass. If you're on Out of Commission, the Revenge Ending, then you can obtain this EC Cognoscenti, Lustered Huntley Sport with EC Stripe, Lustered Mafia Sentinel with EC Rims and HybridLustered PMP 600 all at once with Mission Pass. To get this Lustered Black Huntley Sport with EC Random Stripe, start the Final Mission in IV, then follow the Mafia or Russian Goon to the Abandoned Casino in Alderney. On the way, make sure and check if the Huntley Sport you're chasing is Special. Once you get to the Casino and your Friends leave the Area after the Cutscene, kill off the Goons at the Casino making sure not to destroy the Vehicles there. You will see this Huntley Sport there at the Area, though it's Unjackable. What you need to do is get in a nearby Vehicle around the Area, and push the Huntley Sport from the Abandoned Casino to the Alderney Safehouse Parking Spot. Push it gently all the way to the Parking Spot, check your Map in the Stats as reference. Once you get there, leave the Huntley Sport at the Parking Spot and go back to complete the Mission or to get other Special Vehicles from the Mission. If you want all the Vehicles around the Area, also park your own Special Vehicle, which you used to push the Huntley Sport, at the same Parking Spot and leave it there, then go back to get the other Special Vehicles from the Area. Make sure that the Lusters are Special on the Lustered Vehicles you're getting. Also, you can get the EC Cognoscenti while you're at it too. Once all your Special Vehicles which you want are parked at the Parking Spots, go back and complete the Mission, or fail it if you want the Lustered Sentinel with EC Rims or Special Annihilator or EC Maverick. Once the Mission has been done with, go to all the Parking Spots to fully confirm that they're all there, once you checked, save the Game. If you don't check the Vehicles, save and reload, then your Vehicles would most likely vanish, thus it's very important that you check them after you pass or fail the Mission while obtaining these Special Vehicles.

10.2. Hybrid/Lustered Black Russian Schafter and EC Black Rims
Mission: A Revenger's Tragedy (Deal) (Pass)
How to Obtain: This is an interesting Vehicle, it's a Black Schafter with Russian Bumpers and a Silver/Hybrid Grill on it together, has a Random Luster and has EC Black Rims on it. It's a Russian Schafter for having Russian Bumpers, but unlike normal Traffic Russian Schafters, this particular Schafter doesn't have Black Russian-Traffic Grills. The Grills actually look a bit different compared to Civilian Silver Grills, which makes this Vehicle a huge prize to get. The reason why the Body Color is not EC Black, is because it's a Russian Schafter and normal Traffic Schafters spawn in the Black Body Color. Any Luster that you get will make the Vehicle Special, because the Vehicle has EC Features and Special Variant Features, but avoid the Black Poly Luster on it. It's not actually known if that Luster can spawn on it as it only spawns on Russian Schafters in Traffic, but still, avoid it if it spawns. I suggest getting any Colorful and nice looking Luster which you like. During the Mission A Revenger's Tragedy, Deal Ending, you can obtain this EC Cognoscenti, Lustered Huntley Sport with EC Stripe, Hybrid/Lustered Russian Schafter and EC Rims and Lustered Russian Rebla all at once with Mission Pass, which is explained in 10.1. Though it's the same Concept explained in the above entries. Chase the Goon in the Huntley Sport and once you get to the Casino, kill off the attacking Enemies and check if the Vehicles have Special Lusters. If they have Special Lusters, get in the Hybrid/Lustered Black Russian Schafter and EC Black Rims, drive it to a Safehouse Parking Spot and store it there, then go back to the Mission to get other Special Vehicles, then pass or fail the Mission for other Special Vehicles. Once the Mission has been done with, go to all the Parking Spots to fully confirm that they're all there, once you checked, save the Game. If you don't check the Vehicles, save and reload, then your Vehicles would most likely vanish, thus it's very important that you check them after you pass or fail the Mission while obtaining these Special Vehicles.

10.3 Lustered Black Russian Rebla
Mission: A Revenger's Tragedy (Deal) (Pass)
How to Obtain: This is a Russian Rebla with a Random Luster on it, it's Russian due to the Russian Bumpers that it has. Not all Lusters that can spawn on it are Special, the non-Special Lusters that can spawn on it are Pewter Gray Poly, Lt.Beechwood Poly or Black. Avoid these Lusters at all costs. Though it's not actually known if this Rebla can spawn in the Pewter Gray Poly Luster, but if it can, as it only spawns in Traffic Russian Reblas and not on Normal Civilian Traffic Reblas. Also, if you take a Traffic Russian Rebla to Pay and Spray during Free Roam, you'll get a Russian Rebla with a Lt.Beechwood Poly Luster, thus if that Luster spawns on the Lustered Russian Rebla, it would for sure not be Special. About the Black Luster, it's unknown if it's Special or not on a Lustered Russian Rebla, as it's unknown if the Russian Rebla can have a Black Luster somehow with Pay and Spray. Still, I'd avoid these three Lusters at all costs. There are much more Colorful and nice looking Lusters for this Russian Rebla which I suggest you to obtain. During the Mission A Revenger's Tragedy, Deal Ending, you can obtain this EC Cognoscenti, Lustered Huntley Sport with EC Stripe, Hybrid/Lustered Russian Schafter and EC Rims and Lustered Russian Rebla all at once with Mission Pass, which is explained in 10.1. Though it's the same Concept explained in the above entries. Chase the Goon in the Huntley Sport and once you get to the Casino, kill off the attacking Enemies and check if the Vehicles have Special Lusters. If they have Special Lusters, get in the Lustered Black Russian Rebla, drive it to a Safehouse Parking Spot and store it there, then go back to the Mission to get other Special Vehicles, then pass or fail the Mission for other Special Vehicles. Once the Mission has been done with, go to all the Parking Spots to fully confirm that they're all there, once you checked, save the Game. If you don't check the Vehicles, save and reload, then your Vehicles would most likely vanish, thus it's very important that you check them after you pass or fail the Mission while obtaining these Special Vehicles.

10.4. Lustered Black Mafia Sentinel with EC Black Rims (2 of 2)
Mission: Out of Commission (Revenge) (Pass)
How to Obtain: This is a Mafia Sentinel with EC Black Rims with a Random Luster applied to it. The Rims are EC as Traffic Mafia Sentinels have a Black Poly/Dark Grey Rim Color. Technically, any Luster you get will make this Mafia Sentinel still Special as it has EC Rims, but not all Lusters alone will be Special. Avoid the Torch Green and Black Poly Lusters on this Mafia Sentinel. The Torch Green Luster spawns on Traffic Mafia Sentinels in IV, and the Black Poly spawns on some Black Mafia Sentinels which you can get once you put a random Mafia Sentinel to Pay and Spray multiple times. If you get these Lusters, then it will differ with Non-Special Mafia Sentinels only be the Rim Color. Thus, again, avoid these Lusters. There are much more, colorful and nicer Special Lusters to get, for example, a Red, Light Brown or Blue Luster. Also, I suggest getting this Lustered Black Mafia Sentinel with EC Black Rims instead of the one from She's a Keeper, as this one from Out of Commission can be obtained with passing the Mission. During the Mission Out of Commission, Revenge Ending, you can obtain this EC Cognoscenti, Lustered Huntley Sport with EC Stripe, Lustered Mafia Sentinel with EC Rims and Hybrid/Lustered Mafia PMP 600 all at once with Mission Pass, which is explained in 10.1. Though it's the same Concept explained in the above entries. Chase the Goon in the Huntley Sport and once you get to the Casino, kill off the attacking Enemies and check if the Vehicles have Special Lusters. If they have Special Lusters, get in the Lustered Black Mafia Sentinel with EC Black Rims, drive it to a Safehouse Parking Spot and store it there, then go back to the Mission to get other Special Vehicles, then pass or fail the Mission for other Special Vehicles. Once the Mission has been done with, go to all the Parking Spots to fully confirm that they're all there, once you checked, save the Game. If you don't check the Vehicles, save and reload, then your Vehicles would most likely vanish, thus it's very important that you check them after you pass or fail the Mission while obtaining these Special Vehicles.

10.5. Hybrid/Lustered Black Mafia PMP 600 (2 of 2)
Mission: Out of Commission (Revenge) (Pass)
How to Obtain: This is a Black Body Color Mafia PMP 600 with Hybrid Grills, which means it has mixed both Civilian and Mafia Grills on this PMP 600, it also has a Random Luster. Technically, all Lusters will make the Vehicle Special as the Hybrid Grill is a Special Feature on it, but I highly suggest getting a Special nice looking colorful Luster on it. I suggest avoiding the Currant Red Solid, Black and Nassau Blue Poly Lusters. The Currant Red Solid seems to only spawn on Mafia Traffic PMP 600s, so it's not really known if that Luster can spawn on this Lustered Mafia PMP 600 or not. The Black and Nassau Blue Poly Lusters are found in Traffic on Black PMP 600s, which aren't really Special then. Thus I suggest avoiding these ones, try to get a Light Brown or Green Luster on this PMP 600 to fully know that this Hybrid/Lustered Mafia PMP 600 will be Special, even with the Luster. This same Vehicle can also be found in Pest Control, but it doesn't matter which one you get, as both can be obtained with Mission Pass. During the Mission Out of Commission, Revenge Ending, you can obtain this EC Cognoscenti, Lustered Huntley Sport with EC Stripe, Lustered Mafia Sentinel with EC Rims and Hybrid/Lustered Mafia PMP 600 all at once with Mission Pass, which is explained in 10.1. Though it's the same Concept explained in the above entries. Chase the Goon in the Huntley Sport and once you get to the Casino, kill off the attacking Enemies and check if the Vehicles have Special Lusters. If they have Special Lusters, get in the Hybrid/Lustered Black Mafia PMP 600, drive it to a Safehouse Parking Spot and store it there, then go back to the Mission to get other Special Vehicles, then pass or fail the Mission for other Special Vehicles. Once the Mission has been done with, go to all the Parking Spots to fully confirm that they're all there, once you checked, save the Game. If you don't check the Vehicles, save and reload, then your Vehicles would most likely vanish, thus it's very important that you check them after you pass or fail the Mission while obtaining these Special Vehicles.

10.6. Lustered Black Sentinel with EC Black Rims (2 of 2)
Mission: Out of Commission (Revenge) (Fail)
How to Obtain: This is a Sentinel with EC Black Rims with a Random Luster applied to it. The Rims are EC as Traffic Sentinels never have a Pitch Black Rims Color. Technically, any Luster you get will make this Sentinel still Special as it has EC Rims, but not all Lusters alone will be Special. Avoid the Torch Green and Black Poly Lusters on this Sentinel. The Torch Green Luster spawns on Traffic Mafia Sentinels in IV, and the Black Poly spawns on some Black Sentinels in Traffic. It's actually not really know if the Torch Green can even spawn on this particular Lustered Sentinel with EC Rims, as the Torch Green is a Gang Luster. If you get these Lusters, then it will differ with Non-Special Sentinels only be the Rim Color. Thus, again, avoid these Lusters. There are much more, colorful and nicer Special Lusters to get, for example, a Red, Light Brown or Blue Luster. Also, I suggest getting the first Lustered Black Sentinel with EC Black Rims from Wrong is Right instead of this one from the Revenge Ending, as the one from Wrong is Right can be obtained with passing the Mission. During the Revenge Ending Mission, Out of Commission, you will see this Lustered Sentinel with EC Rims, in the Mission there is both a Mafia and Civilian Version of the Sentinel, both Lustered and with EC Black Rims, but for the Civilian Version you'll need to do something different. To get it, start Out of Commission and chase the Goon in the Huntley Sport to the Casino, once Little Jacob and Roman leave, kill off the Goons at the Casino. If you want, you can get the Special Vehicles here now too with the Concept explained in 10.1. and the below Entries. Once you got the Special Vehicles, or not if you don't plan to do that, get in the Casino and chase after Pegorino, then get in the Sanchez chasing Pegorino. As instructed, drive at the Beach following Pegorino. Once the Annihilator shows up and once you're instructed to jump over the Ramp, don't do that, but instead turn right and you will see three Lustered Sentinels with EC Rims there at the Road Area meeting the Beach. There will be four Mafia Goons there, thus kill them. Check if the Lusters on the Sentinel are Special, and if they are, get in one of the Special ones, drive it to a Parking Spot and store it there. You will soon enough fail the Mission for not jumping over the Ramp, which is normal. If you got other Special Vehicles while obtaining this Sentinel, check the other Safehouse Parking Spots and make sure they're all there, because if you don't do that, they might've disappeared.

10.7. Annihilator without Right Door and Tail Rotor
Mission: A Revenger's Tragedy (Deal) or Out of Commission (Revenge) (Fail)
How to Obtain: This is basically a NE Annihilator, where NE means No Extra, which means it has missing Objects on the Vehicle. This Annihilator from the Final Mission in IV has no Right Door and Tail Rotor, which makes it Special. You can make it AP using the AP Conversion Trick and have a AP Annihilator without Right Door and Tail Rotor. During both Endings, you will see this Annihilator, so do the Final Mission up until you crash at Happiness Island. Once the Crash Landing Cutscene ends, shoot and kill Little Jacob to fail the Mission. Once the Mission has been failed, get inside the Annihilator without Right Door and Tail Rotor and call anyone from your Phone Book. For some reason, calling someone will start the Annihilator up and make it usable. Once you're inside it and it's flyable, fly it to a Safehouse Parking Spot, preferably the Middle Park East one, and park it at the Parking Spot to store it there. It will be critically damaged at this point, so don't clip anything or you'll go down and then you'll need to redo all of this to get it again. After saving this Annihilator, the Right Door will make it vanish, which makes it unique. There have been reports, that when you obtain the Lustered Sentinel with EC Rims during the Revenge Ending, that you will sometimes see this Annihilator intact, just without Rotor Blades, near the Alderney Safehouse Parking Spot, near the local Unique Stunt Jump. If that happens, then you're lucky, as then you can obtain both the Lustered Sentinel with EC Rims and this Annihilator all with one Mission Failure instead of two. If that happens, but keep in mind that this is a very, very rare sight, then call up 911 and select the Fire Department and push the Annihilator to the Parking Spot nearby, while also saving this Sentinel. This may only happen on PC, but again, it's very rare that this happens, so it's best to get it after you crash at Happiness Island.

10.8. EC White and Gold Maverick
Mission: A Revenger's Tragedy (Deal) (Fail)
How to Obtain: This is Dimitri's EC White and Gold Maverick, it for sure has a EC Body Color on it. Interestingly the Color that is given for the White Color doesn't exist, the Maverick gets a Color 195 on it, but then it gets a White Color applied to it, which is weird. This is the second time in the Game where this appears, first being the EC White and Red Maverick which gets the same unexistent Color 195. Also, this EC Maverick from the Final Deal Mission has a Desert Red Luster on it, which isn't quite well visible due to the White Color. Make note that this EC Maverick is only obtainable from the Deal Ending, with Failure. This is the same Method as with the Special Annihilator above. Do the Final Deal Mission up until the point where you and Dimitri both crash at Happiness Island, once that happens, run to where the EC White and Gold Maverick is and kill the nearby Russian. Get in and let the Mission fail for losing Dimitri. Once the Mission has failed, call someone in your Phone Book, which will, for some reason, make the EC Maverick be usable and flyable. Once it's flyable, flyit back to a Safehouse Parking Spot and store it there. It will be critically damaged at this point, so don't clip anything or you'll go down and then you'll need to redo all of this to get it again.

10.9. EC/Lustered Light Silver and Dark Grey Banshee
Mission: Hossan Ramzy Random Encounter (Pass)
How to Obtain: This is a Banshee with a EC Light Silver Body Color with has a Dark Grey Stripe and a Random Luster applied to it. This is not the same Banshee as the one from Meltdown, they're different Banshees. The Banshee from Meltdown has a Silver Body Color with a Black Stripe, meanwhile this Banshee has a Light Silver Body Color and a Dark Grey Stripe. All Lusters on it are Special as the Vehicle itself is EC. But if you were to get the Med.Sapphire Blue Firemist, Concord Blue Poly, Race Yellow Solid, Lt.Crystal Blue Poly or Torch Green Lusters, then compared to some Traffic Banshees, only the Body Color would differ, though I suggest to not care about the Luster you get, because all are Special due to the fact that the Banshee is EC. To obtain it, start the Random Encounter Mission from Hossan Ramzy, it will be available after the Story Mission The Puerto Rican Connection. Get a Vehicle and drive with Hossan to the Location, after the Cutscene, follow the Target in the Banshee and kill him using Drive-By making sure that you don't blow up the Banshee. Then, claim the Money Drop, then get in the EC/Lustered Light Silver and Dark Grey Banshee, after that simply drive Hossan to the Location to finish and pass the Mission. Once the Mission is passed and you're still driving the Banshee, drive to a Safehouse Parking Spot and store it there.

11.0. EC White Cognoscenti
Mission: Gracie Ancelotti Random Encounter (Pass)
How to Obtain: This is a Cognoscenti with a Full Very White Body Color, which is indeed EC. Something is funny about this Cognoscenti, in the Mission Script it gets Unexistent Colors applied to it, which are Color 156, 161, 163. These Colors don't exist, thus the Cognoscenti gets a White Color instead. This EC White Cognoscenti will be found parked in Gracie's Driveway where she appears in the Random Encounter. To obtain it, start the Gracie Ancelotti Random Encounter Side Mission, which is unlocked after Diamonds are a Girl's Best Friend. Then take out her Bodyguards and, after the Side Mission is passed, get in the EC White Cognoscenti and drive it to a Safehouse Parking Spot and store it there. You can also obtain it by shooting Gracie from a Distance, which will cancel the Side Mission, which means you haven't even started it, then you can get in the Cognoscenti and store it. Simple Special Vehicle to obtain.

11.1. EC Black Huntley Sport
Mission: Taken Out Fixer's Assassination Mission (Pass)
How to Obtain: This is a Pitch Black Huntley Sport, it has a Black Roof, Black Siding Body Color, Black Stripe and Black Luster. In Traffic, there is a Huntley Sport where the Body Color is Black, though it has a Lt.Beechwood Poly Luster, which is a Light Brownish Color. The EC Huntley Sport has a Black Luster too, which makes it Special and EC because the Luster is Set. The difference between this EC Black Huntley Sport and the Traffic Black Huntley Sport is very noticable. Also, this same EC Black Huntley Sport appears in TLaD too. To obtain it, start the Fixer's Assassination Mission called Taken Out. You'll have to probably do some Assassination Missions until you get Taken Out, as the Assassination Missions come up in a random order. Once you've started Taken Out, drive to the Stretch and attack it. After you've attacked it, two EC Black Huntley Sports will show up and come after you. Simply, kill the Target in the Stretch as well as the extra Enemies that show up. Once passed, take one of the EC Black Huntley Sports to a Safehouse Parking Spot, park it there and store it. Just make sure that you don't blow up the Huntley Sport accidently.

11.2. EC Black and Green Beater Emperor
Mission: Little Jacob's Drug Delivery Missions (except the Final Delivery) (Pass)
How to Obtain: A random EC Beater Vehicle will be provided for you during the Little Jacob's Drug Delivery Side Missions, except for the Final Mission. One of the three possible EC Beater Vehicles is this EC Black and Green Beater Emperor, it has a EC Green Roof and a Special White Luster. The Black Body Color alone is not Special though. To obtain it, start a Little Jacob's Drug Delivery Side Mission by selecting Job on Little Jacob on your Phonebook, then drive to the Location as instructed. Get in the EC Beater Vehicle which spawns, then complete the Mission like normally. After the Side Mission is done, drive it to a Safehouse Parking Spot and store it there.

11.3. EC Black and Green Beater Sabre
Mission: Little Jacob's Drug Delivery Missions (except the Final Delivery) (Pass)
How to Obtain: A random EC Beater Vehicle will be provided for you during the Little Jacob's Drug Delivery Side Missions, except for the Final Mission. One of the three possible EC Beater Vehicles is this EC Black and Green Beater Sabre. It has a EC Black Body Color with a EC Green Stripe along the Bottom of the Vehicle, plus a EC White Luster which isn't very visible. To obtain it, start a Little Jacob's Drug Delivery Side Mission by selecting Job on Little Jacob on your Phonebook, then drive to the Location as instructed.

11.4. EC Black Beater Vigero
Mission: Little Jacob's Drug Delivery Missions (except the Final Delivery) (Pass)
How to Obtain: A random EC Beater Vehicle will be provided for you during the Little Jacob's Drug Delivery Side Missions, except for the Final Mission. One of the three possible EC Beater Vehicles is this EC Black Beater Vigero. There are several Variants of this Beater Vigero though, all are still Special. On one Version, you can nicely see the Black Body Color, along with the White and Rusty Brown Livery of the Vehicle. On another Version of the Vehicle, you won't see Black anywhere on the Vehicle. That is because the Black Color is hiding behind the Rusty Brown Livery and is sort of mixing with it. On this Version, if it was any other Color, it'd be Visible, but the Black Body Color makes itself Invisible, due to mixing with the Livery, thus why it's actually Visible. I suggest getting the Version where you can nicely see the Black Body Color. To obtain it, start a Little Jacob's Drug Delivery Side Mission by selecting Job on Little Jacob on your Phonebook, then drive to the Location as instructed. Get in the EC Beater Vehicle which spawns, then complete the Mission like normally. After the Side Mission is done, drive it to a Safehouse Parking Spot and store it there.

11.5. Hybrid Triad Intruder
Mission: Little Jacob's Drug Delivery Mission - Cerveza Heights Car Stack (Pass)
How to Obtain: This is an Intruder with Features from a Triad Intruder and Features from a Civilian Intruder. It has no Spoiler like the Civilian Version, but it has Extended Bumpers and Side Skirts like the Triad Tuner Intruder. Also, it has the Civilian Intruder Badges on the Back of the Vehicle, instead of the VX Badges. You can never find a Version like this of an Intruder in Free Roam in IV. It also has Random Traffic Colors applied to it, which aren't Special. Normal Triad Intruders spawn in Chinatown in Algonquin. To obtain this Hybrid Triad Intruder, start a Little Jacob's Drug Delivery Side Mission by selecting Job on Little Jacob on your Phonebook, then drive to the Location as instructed and get in the Beater Vehicle with the Drug Package. If you get the Message saying that you need to deliver the Package to Cerveza Heights Car Stack, then it's the Drug Delivery Mission where the Hybrid Triad Intruder spawns. Drive to the Location and enter the Yellow Marker. Now, skip the Cutscene. It's very important that you skip the Cutscene, because if you don't do that, a normal Civilian Intruder will spawn instead. So, skip the Cutscene, kill all the Enemies nearby to pass the Drug Delivery. Then get in the Hybrid Triad Intruder, drive it to a Parking Spot and store it.

11.6. Hybrid Futo GT
Mission: Little Jacob's Drug Delivery Mission - Meadow Hills (Pass)
How to Obtain: This is an Futo with Features from an Albanian Futo and Features from a Civilian Futo. It has no Spoiler like the Civilian Version, but it has Extended Bumpers like the Albanian Futo, which is also called a Futo GT. It also has the Black Hood and GT Badges, plus the Driver's Seat is Red, just like on the Traffic Futo GT. You can never find a Version like this of a Futo in Free Roam in IV. It also has Random Traffic Colors applied to it, which aren't Special. Normal Futo GTs spawn in Little Bay in Bohan. To obtain this Hybrid Futo GT, start a Little Jacob's Drug Delivery Side Mission by selecting Job on Little Jacob on your Phonebook, then drive to the Location as instructed and get in the Beater Vehicle with the Drug Package. If you get the Message saying that you need to deliver the Package to Meadow Hills, then it's the Drug Delivery Mission where the Hybrid Futo GT spawns. Drive to the Location and enter the Yellow Marker. Now, skip the Cutscene. It's very important that you skip the Cutscene, because if you don't do that, a normal Civilian Futo will spawn instead. So, skip the Cutscene, kill all the Enemies nearby to pass the Drug Delivery. Then get in the Hybrid Futo GT, drive it to a Parking Spot and store it.

11.7. EC Black and Green Huntley Sport with EC Gold Stripe
Mission: Little Jacob's Drug Delivery Mission - Final Drug Delivery (Pass)
How to Obtain: This is an interesting Vehicle, it's actually not really EC, because the Black and Green Body Color and Gold Stripe are found on Jamaican Huntley Sports in Free Roam. Though, what makes it Special is the fact that these Rasta Colors are on a Normal Civilian Huntley Sport. Because you can never get these Gang Colors on a Civilian Huntley Sport, it's EC.

Mission: Brucie's Exotic Exports (Fail, doesn't affect Stats)
How to Obtain: During the Brucie's Exotic Exports Side Missions, you can obtain 10 nice EC Special Vehicles. One of these Special Vehicles is this EC Silver and Black PCJ 600. This one can be a bit confusing sometimes. It has a Silver main Body Color which is EC for sure. But the Secondary Color is Black, which are the Rims on all Versions of the PCJ 600. There are several Variants of the PCJ 600, one having no Metal Pipes on the Sides of the Bike, one having Black Metal Pipes and one having Silver Metal Pipes. The Version with the Black Metal Pipes, it has Black ones because it's adapted from the Secondary Color, thus being a Colored Area on the PCJ 600, thus the Black Color 2 doesn't always only mean the Rims, but also these Metal Pipes, if this Variant spawns. I suggest getting the Variant with the Metal Pipes. The Black Secondary Color is not Special alone, but due to the Metal Pipes basically being the Body Color, along with the Rims, I will call it a EC Silver and Black PCJ 600. It also has a Special Black Luster on it which isn't very noticable, as it's practically invisible. Check out 12.3. to know how to get these EC Vehicles as it's all explained there.

Mission: Stevie's Car Thefts
How to Obtain: During the Stevie's Car Thefts Side Mission, you have to pick up 30 Vehicles in a random order around the Map and take it to Stevie's Garage in Bohan. All 30 Vehicles in this Side Mission are EC and Special, though some are more Special and some are less. This entry will be the explanation of the Method how to obtain these Vehicles and the same Method works for all 30 Vehicles. First, unlock the Stevie's Car Thefts Side Mission by completing the Missions No. 1, A Long Way to Fall and Smackdown, then wait for Stevie to give you a Text Message saying which Vehicle he wants. If you want that Vehicle which he requests, just drive to the Location to pick it up and then take it to any Safehouse Parking Spot, and that's it. Unlike Brucie's Exotic Exports, the Mission will not fail for abandoning it and instead, another Vehicle will just spawn in the place you took the first one from. So, you can go back to the Location and find the exact same EC Vehicle in the exact same Color. Though, it may have a different Variation. Take the duplicate to the Lockup in Bohan and proceed on with the rest of the Vehicles in the List. It doesn't get any easier. If you don't want the Vehicle that Stevie requests in the Text Message, just get it from the Location and take it to the Garage in Bohan and proceed with the Side Mission. Make note that he will ask for these EC Vehicles in a completely random order. Also, make note that the Final Vehicle that Stevie wants you to find will remain on the Map forever in the exact same Location on the PC and Xbox 360 Versions of IV. The PS3 Version doesn't do that. So if you're on PC or Xbox 360, then the Final Vehicle that Stevie requests will be actually Rare and not Special. In the following entries I will explain why and how some Vehicles are Special and EC. This EC Orange and Yellow Banshee has a nice Orange Body Color with a Yellow Stripe, it's EC, plus the Yellow Luster that it has is also EC. It can spawn with or without a Roof, so get the Variant you like the most. This EC Orange and Yellow Banshee is found at the Randolf Art Center on Galveston Avenue in Middle Park West, Algonquin.

This EC Contender has a Dark Grey, Black Poly, Body Color which is found in Traffic on some Contenders, however, the Secondary Colors are different to the Traffic Dark Grey Contender and the EC Dark Grey Contender. This EC Contender always spawns as a Civilian one, so the Secondary Color is always invisible, because the Color 2 are the Roof Lights on the Irish Contenders. But, the Traffic and EC Contenders have different Lusters, thus why the EC Contender is EC. The EC Contender has a Winning Silver Poly Luster which is EC, though the Traffic one has a Silver Sone Poly Luster. If you compare them directly to each other, you won't see a real difference between them visually, though the Lusters are different. So again, this Special Vehicle isn't really needed to be obtained as it's barely Special.

16.2. EC Black Washington (3 of 3)
Mission: Stevie's Car Thefts
How to Obtain: Check out 13.3. to know how to obtain the EC Stevie's Car Thefts Vehicles as they all have the same Method. This EC Black Washington is the least Special Vehicle from those 30 Special Vehicles from Stevie's Car Thefts. First of all, yes, it's the same EC Black Washington from Undertaker and from To Live and Die in Alderney, same exact one. If you want it, just obtain it from the Stevie's Car Thefts, as that one is not from an actual Mission thus you don't need to fail any Missions to obtain it. It's Black Body Color is not EC, as there are Black Washingtons in Traffic, however, that Traffic Black Washington has an Astra Silver Poly Luster, meanwhile, the EC Washington has a Silver Stone Poly Luster. These Lusters look very similar to each other in Color when compared next to each other. However, the Luster Color is still different, even if the human eye can't see the difference very well, so it's still a EC Vehicle and Special. This EC Black Washington is found at the Outdoor Pool on Franklin Street in Steinway, Dukes.

16.3. AP Conversion Trick
Mission: Girlfriend Dates (Fail - Failing Dates has nothing to do with the Mission Stats in the Pause Menu)
How to Obtain: In GTA IV there are no Proofed Vehicles found in the Storyline, only Unique, EC and Lustered Stuff, also some Hybrid and NE Stuff, but no Vehicles with Immunities. Luckily, there is an AP Conversion Trick in IV where you can make any Special or Normal Vehicle into AP, which means the Vehicle will become Bulletproof, Fireproof, Explosionproof and Damageproof all in one. To do this AP Conversion, you first need a Girlfriend in-game, you can use Michelle/Karen right after the Story Mission First Date or Kate McReary after the Story Mission Waste Not Want Knots, though I suggest using the Internet Girlfriends, as Kate and Michelle are limited Girlfriends in IV. I suggest having 100% Fondness for Michelle and Kate, if you use them to make Vehicles AP, then you won't have 100% Fondness. The Internet Girlfriends are Carmen Ortiz (SoBoHoe), Kiki Jenkins (LawChick) and Alex Chilton (Liberated Woman). After the Mission Logging On, Niko will have the ability to go on the Internet and date those three Girlfriends, so E-Mail them and wait for the E-Mail Reply. You will find Carmen and Kiki on Love-Meet, and Alex is found on Craplist. When you get the Reply from them and reply positively to arrange a Date and wait until you have to go to her House to go out with her. When the time comes and you're ready for the scheduled Date, take your desired Vehicle in which you want to convert it to AP and drive it to the Girl's House. Drive into the Yellow Marker and allow the Girl to get into the Vehicle. At this point, when you take control of Niko and when the Girlfriend is inside the Vehicle, simply break the Window of the Vehicle and fire a Weapon out of the Window. This will scare the Girl and the Date will fail. After the short Cutscene takes place with the Girl leaving Niko's Vehicle, the Vehicle is now converted to AP! It will only become AP if the Girlfriend is inside the Vehicle in the Cutscene. Simply drive your AP Vehicle back to a Safehouse Parking Spot and store it there. Also, you can even have AP Helicopters in IV, so if you have a EC Maverick or the NE Annihilator, you can convert them to AP. Though, the Method is a bit different to make Helicopters AP. To do that, have your desired Helicopter at a Parking Spot, then arrange a Date and drive to your Girlfriend's House using a Road Vehicle. Once the Girlfriend is inside your Vehicle, drive to the Parking Spot where your Helicopter is stored in, then get in the Helicopter with your Girlfriend. If you take your Helicopter to the Girlfriend's House, it will most likely disappear, as you can't take it into the Yellow Marker. Once you're inside the Helicopter with your Girlfriend, fly to a Rooftop. Get out of your Helicopter and get in it so that the Girlfriend doesn't get inside it. It's a bit difficult to accomplish that, so use the Museum at Middle Park to do that. Get out of your Helicopter, then push the Girl off the Ledge so that she falls down on the lower level of the Roof of the Building. Then, get inside the Helicopter. What you want to do now is hit the Girlfriend with your Helicopter so that you scare her, but not injure her. You need to fly into her using your Helicopter, so that she gets spooked and that the short Cutscene happens. Once you manage that and get the Cutscene, your Helicopter will become AP and you can fly it to a Parking Spot to store it. Make note that the Annihilator's Guns don't scare the Girlfriends though. Rinse and repeat the explained procedure to make more AP Vehicles, though you can have up to 10 in total parked at the 5 Safehouses in the Game. Make note that sometimes for unknown reasons the Vehicles can vanish from the Parking Spots after using this AP Conversion. Either that, or the Vehicle will remain there but won't be AP anymore. No worries, though, as if this happens to you, you can reapply the Immunities by going out on another Date. It's possible this may take some persistence for this to work out and keep the AP Vehicles, but it's nothing too serious. This can be done as early as after passing First Date and it can also be done after 100%, even. Make note that if you convert any Police Vehicle to AP and then activate the Computer in the Police Vehicle to do a Police Side Mission, the Immunities will be gone and you'll have to reapply them. Also, if you use your AP Vehicle to take a Girl out on a date, it will also remove the Immunities on the Vehicle. This can work with any Car, Truck, Van, Motorcycle, Boat or Helicopter as explained already. Though, Boats can't be saved in the Parking Spots, so having an AP Boat would be useless. Boats are possible to be converted to AP, but they can't be saved as already mentioned.Have fun converting your Special Vehicles, that you collected in IV, into AP form!

It's going to be a bit slower than the usual speed I work on the Guides, but still shouldn't take too long. I have worked up to 3.0. just now and am done for the day. I only do about 10 Entries per day. Couple weeks, it should be finished and then onto TBoGT Guide.

Yeah, his Guides are on Gamefaqs and outdated. Hence the whole reason to do my own Guides here, in which are updated, and hopefully with Videos in time. I also don't like how his Guides are layed out. He has Unique Vehicles, Lustered Vehicles, and EC Vehicles all separately. Whereas I have ALL the Vehicles simply in a row of when they come up in the Story. With His Guide you gotta scroll down so far just to find a Vehicle if it's EC, but if it has a Luster, then you need to scroll up to find a Lustered Vehicle. No idea why it's just not in order from beginning to end. A lot of scrolling up, scrolling down, scrolling up, scrolling down. It's annoying...

 

You can also find about Special Vehicles on GTA Wiki, but that site blows ass and is so incomplete, it's embarrassing. False information, and doesn't include everything...

Lol, most of the Special Vehicles coming out of the HD Era aren't even difficult. Majority are 1 and 2 star difficulties, which is nothing. A lot of people wanted me to make HD Era Guides, but I don't see why as there isn't much interesting things to go on with the HD Era. Just a few random Vehicles here and there are worthy of being obtained...3D Era is King when it comes to the Special Vehicles and having a challenge in obtaining most of them.

 

My Save sucks, tbh. 2 Mission Failures which next time I will either have 1 or 0, depending on if I get the Unique Police Stockade from Three Leaf Clover (Fail) or Tunnel of Death (Pass). I will get the Unique Laundromat from Meltdown (Pass) instead of Hung out to Dry (Fail) like I did in my first Save. Most of the Vehicles I got were easy. Like instead of the EC Black Lustered Super GT I have in my Save, I will instead get the one from No. 1 since it has some difficulty involved as it needs to be pushed back to a Safehouse, etc. I will be making much better Saves eventually for the HD Era. But first, I am finishing writing these Guides and then I will start playing again. I didn't play any GTA in a few weeks now ever since I finished my new III iOS Save...

And like I said above about them being easy, this is one of them. You just shoot the Guards at her house and then drive the Cognoscenti back to a parking space :D:p There isn't much to it. It's a nice Vehicle, though, of course.

 

Eventually I'll get to that part of the Guide. I am taking my time. No need to rush it and just do 10 Entries per day.

Guide Complete!

 

Like I said in the TLaD Guide, if anyone sees any errors or things that aren't right, let me know and I will fix them.

 

Notice, though, so many 1 and 2 star difficulties, like TLaD Guide, and like TBoGT will be, too. HD Era has barely anything difficult and worth mentioning...

 

Oh and Videos!!!!!!!!! If anyone wants to record (Bender. or whoever) that will be great...

I have changed the Unique Police Stockade (2 of 2) Description on how to obtain it since I did what it now says in the Guide in my newest Save I just finished today and it worked like a charm with passing Tunnel of Death. I also want to make note (didn't change it in the Guide yet) that the EC Blue and Lustered Super GT in the Mission "No. 1" for Brucie seems to NOT be obtainable on PS3. I tried numerous times to get it from that Mission, but every Vehicle just vanishes after the cutscene. Even if you skip the cutscene, even if the camera is facing the direction of the Vehicles, it doesn't matter. Everything disappears at the end.

 

Here is the Photos of the Special Vehicles I got in my new Save and this time, it also has 0 Missions Failed. My old Save had 2 Missions Failed, so all in all, I did a lot better this time around than last time. I also got a much lower Total Playing Time, no Losses in the Stats for any Minigame, Kate to 100% Fondness, etc, etc.

 

Roman's Apartment: AP/Lustered Coquette, AP/EC Banshee

South Bohan: Unique/AP Roman's Taxi, Unique/AP Laundromat

Well, I did tell you in the V "Guide" Topic that I would include credit to you at the top, but not until I get to updating this Guide. I plan on rewriting all the Posts, anyways, since I am playing on PS3 and noticed some of the things you've wrote don't work or the Vehicles are purely unobtainable on the PS3 Version, etc. So if I am borrowing a lot from your Guide by the time I rewrite all of this, then I will include credit to you. Not to mention, you're mentioned in Comment 7 and 9 within this Guide already and people can clearly see it's based off your Guide, but the format is completely different and I try and explain EVERYTHING possible and will also be adding in Videos for everything in time, as well. There is major differences. It's not copy/pasted...Also, it's only IV, TLaD, and TBoGT where I used your Guide as a reference. III, VC, SA, LCS, VCS, and CW are written on personal experience since I obtained every Vehicle in such GTA's that exist, practically, and know how to get them all without reading or watching anything. I mastered the 3D Era and CW, whereas I am quite new to the HD Era since the Special Vehicles are not as interesting or difficult to obtain in the HD Era. I've done 6 to 14 playthroughs of the 3D Era GTA's, whereas I only have done 2 to 3 playthroughs of the HD Era. With lack of experience, it's difficult to write the Guides when there is nothing to go off of or watch on Youtube. It's why I prefer Guides with Videos since there is in fact visual learners and reading a wall of text isn't going to help them. All 3D Era Guides have a Video for 99% of every single Entry within the Guide, whereas my HD Era Guides have hardly anything to offer. There is 10 to 96 Pages of Comments and Discussion for my 3D Era Guides and hardly any Discussion for these HD Era Guides. Can you guess why? I can.

 

I just got a new job, so updating will be a bit slower than normal. I updated III, VC, LCS, VCS, and CW. I still have SA, IV, TLaD, and TBoGT still to update and plan on updating TLaD and TBoGT next since both are short, saving IV and SA for last as both are long and will take more time to update.

Militia, a thought regarding a way to get more special vehicles in GTA4 (and 5). I devised this strategy late in GTA4's life and am just now putting it into practice with my new playthrough.

 

Well, first of all, I keep incremental saves throughout my play, not just my master save and endgame save, usually to use up all of the save slots available. Now I do know you won't have so many available since he PS3 just uses the system's HDD for saving, while on the 360 I can have 5+ save locations (HDD, two proprietary memory cards, two USB drives, and some 360s have an additional small system storage built in). Each of those can hold 12 saves for GTA4 and 15 for GTA5, and I can switch between them at will when saving or loading in the games.

 

But in the event you wanted to even use a couple extra save slots (I assume you use 6 by default: three master saves, three endgame saves, one each for GTA4, TLAD, and TBoGT)...

 

My incremental saves are, for instance, at missions 10, 22, 34, 46, 54, 66, 75, and 87, according to the list in my guide. So I collect ALL vehicles possible between two of those missions and store them all. Then once I complete the mission I make the incremental save at (I just got to Paper Trail, mission 46), I make the same. Now I have a save at Paper Trail, but I've obtained ALL special vehicles between The Snow Storm (34) and Paper Trail (46). As I continue, I'll discard all of the vehicles I currently have saved (except Roman's Taxi which is no longer obtainable), because I already have them on the Paper Trail save. Then at Three Leaf Clover (54), I'll do the same thing. And so on until the end.

 

So each incremental save has its own set of vehicles, although obviously Algonquin and Alderney parking spots are difficult to use. I didn't change Algonquin parking spots until The Snow Storm (when it's been unlocked) and I only changed Alderney's once (for Paper Trail, as there were exactly 10 special vehicles between those points).

 

If I used all 10 spots across those saves, it'll give me about 80 special vehicles total, with only one playthrough. Keep in mind that's getting multiple vehicles in a mission when possible, such as two lusters from Easy As Can Be, the Comet and SuperGT in No. 1, and the Sabre GT and Patriot in Photo Shoot. I do prioritize keeping unique vehicles though, so now Roman's Taxi is using up a permanent spot, as will Police Stockade, Romero, and Laundromat eventually.

 

I also consider Deal as the more optimal end path than Revenge. For story reasons above all, but also for vehicles. First, Deal offers the white ribbon Cognoscenti at the wedding. But it also gives a lustered Russian Schafter and Rebla in the final mission. The lustered Rebla is ONLY in this mission, and the lustered russian Schafter is only found in two missions: Easy As Can Be also has 2 other lustered vehicles unique to it (Sultan, NRG900), and the one in the mission for Pegorino is only obtainable through failure.

 

Compared to Revenge's final mission, with the hybrid grill Mafia PMP 600 (also in ...Pest Control) and Sentinel (also in She's a Keeper, albeit requires mission failure).

Yeah, that sounds like a good plan you got going there. I've done something similar in LCS and VCS when it comes to the Saves, but I never cared so much about the HD Era Special Vehicles since they just seemed so much more "weak" compared to that of the 3D Era. For instance, for LCS, I have a 48% Starter Save in Slot 1, and then in Slots 2 through 8, I have 7 100% Saves with Minimum Stats, and 12 Special Vehicles in each, which is the maximum per Save you can store. The 7th Save only has 2 Special Vehicles, though. However across the 7 total 100% Saves with Minimum Stats as well, I have 74 total Special Vehicles. Same applies to VCS. I have the the 49.20% Starter Save in Slot 1, and then in Slots 2 through 4, I have 3 100% Saves with Minimum Stats, and 12 Special Vehicles in each, which is the maximum per Save you can store. So across the 3 Saves, I have 36 Special Vehicles. There is more to collect and more things being discovered over the past few months, so I may need to go ahead and do a 4th Save File to 100% with Minimum Stats and another set of 12 Special Vehicles. I just get bored of VCS so much and it's my least favorite of the 3D Era, thus I didn't take the initiative yet to actually go through and obtain ALL the Vehicles, like I practically did in LCS. I've obtained every Special Vehicle in the LCS Database, basically, other than just a handful of them, mostly coming from the Portland Story Missions, which as you may know, is rather sh*tty since the Portland Garage is SO small and at best can fit 2 Cars and 2 Bikes. Meanwhile, I have Vehicles like an EC Patriot to obtain and other Cars that just won't fit inside all in the SAME Save, thus forcing me to only obtain one or two Special Vehicles from Portland in the entire Save which isn't worth it to me. The ones I am missing are simple to get, anyways. I am missing quite a few in VCS, but as I said, that game bores me and again, what I am missing is very easy to get, anyways.

 

I just try and fill max capacity per Save and GTA I am working on OR I try and get ALL the Special Vehicles that exist in the entire game OR I try and get as many as I can and fall short due to lack of skill, determination, patience, etc, etc, however, I pretty much mastered the art of Special Vehicles and usually have all these traits to obtain all of them in the end, even if some take hours of reloading, etc...

 

When it comes to the HD Era, I simply just pick the best 10 (in terms of GTA IV) that interest me, the best 16 (in terms of TLaD) that interest me, and the best 16 (in terms of TBoGT) that interest me. Again, most of the Vehicles in the HD Era feel pretty pathetic and not all that special since most of them are just given to you or very easy to obtain without putting much effort into it or doing anything challenging to get it and because of how I feel about the HD Era, I can't be bothered to do multiple Saves and get ALL of the Vehicles in each game. I am only into this in the 3D Era as those Special Vehicles feel all around more prize worthy and fun to obtain.

 

My PS3 has 4 total USB Ports. 1 is being used by the Controller and the other 3 Ports are empty and can easily back up my Saves onto a USB Drive and even onto my PC. So space for Saves and to make backups is never an issue.

 

I personally always chose Revenge, simply cuz I personally felt it was the right decision and I prefer Roman, Niko's flesh and blood, over Kate. Niko was always out for blood lust and revenge the entire Story up until the end, I guess, when he confronted Darko, but I also kill that guy, too. So Revenge just seems more appropriate to me. Money was never an issue for me, either, so I don't care if I lose out on money in Deal Ending. But yeah, I agree, the Special Vehicles found in Deal Ending are better than Revenge. I just never personally went for a lot of the Special Vehicles in IV, so I never intended to obtain those Special Vehicles in the Ending Missions.

 

When it comes to TLaD and TBoGT, I'll easily be able to fix up my Guides, but like I told you twice before, I'll go ahead and give you credit for IV in my Guide when I get to updating it in the coming week or so since I can say you more than likely know more about it than I do and how to get all the Special Vehicles due to my own lack of experience with obtaining so many in this game. But in TLaD and TBoGT, I experimented a lot with the Special Vehicles and such and have very little issue to write my own Entries in those Guides. But for IV, I get confused and am uncertain of a lot, so I will certainly give you credit at the top when I edit it. First, I gotta finish 3.0 to 4.0 in my TLaD Guide today, and then start on fixing TBoGT. Once TBoGT is done with, I will do IV and lastly, SA since that game is huge for the Special Vehicles and well over 100 separate Entries for each Special Vehicle.

 

Once I finish updating these Guides, though, I will go back to playing GTA as I didn't play in over a week since I finished my new GTA V Save. I'll re-do my TLaD 100% Save, my TBoGT 100% Save, and then move back to the 3D Era and do some stuff.

It's funny, I'm doing this incremental set of saves as I explained above, but I had planned to do a second partial playthrough to get the "alternate" vehicles I missed, from missions with multiple special vehicles. But so far, I've gotten all necessary vehicles from those missions!

 

Lustered black Sultan and NRG900 from Easy As Can Be. Lustered silver Lokus and the Laundromat from Meltdown. Both the lustered black Contender and Stallion from Smackdown, both lustered gray Sabre GT and silver Patriot from Photo Shoot, etc.

 

At this rate I won't actually need the second play, except as my "revenge": ending playthrough. The only "either or" special vehicle I won't be able to get both of for sure (that also doesn't need mission failures or cheats) is the solid red Sanchez or lustered black/silver Rancher in If the Price is Right, but the "alternate" vehicle save can't do that anyways because of no missions failures and revenge path.

 

Oh, I guess there's also the red Biff in Tunnel of Death. But I'm just amazed at the fact I've managed all of this, especially the silver Lokus in Meltdown ANd the Laundromat.

I guess you don't plan on going back to the part where you obtain some Special Vehicles for a specific Save up to a certain point and reaching 100%, right? That's how I did the LCS/VCS Saves. I just couldn't leave them "undone." I had to always reach 100% on all 7 LCS Saves and all 3 VCS Saves with 12 Special Vehicles in each Save, which is the maximum. In terms of IV, 10 is the maximum, so you'll just leave them as is for the Special Vehicles?

 

In a way, I always wanted to dabble with the Lustered Black Sultan and Lustered Black NRG 900 in IV. There's quite a few Special Vehicles that look really awesome but due to lack of storage space, I just forget them. I mean, I like IV a lot, so it's possible I simply just do more Save Files in the future, but in the future, NOT reach 100% and do it like you are doing. I already have my main Save that I finished a couple months ago and am completely happy with it, despite some of the Special Vehicles being piss easy to obtain and just given to me. But having them in AP form is very nice! It's why I don't care to get the TLC Police Stockade with BP Mesh Window with a Failure, since once you convert the other one from ToD into AP form, it's unstoppable, basically...

 

In an old Save I failed Hung out to Dry to get the Laundromat, but this time, I surely got it from Meltdown as it's simple. But in the process, I missed a nice looking Banshee with a Luster. The Banshee from the Hossan Random Encounter didn't look special to me on PS3, btw. Maybe it doesn't have a Luster at all sometimes? But for me, it looked identical to what I have seen on the street. I like the Banshee from Stevie's Car Thefts the most, despite it given to you.

 

Btw, I will start to fix this Guide tomorrow as I have off from work and am nearly done editing TBoGT Guide and fixing it up. At that time, I will give you the credit at the top, etc.

 

Also, do you know how to make a Maverick converted to AP? Is there a way to scare the girlfriend and make it AP? I only know Cars, Trucks, Vans, Motorcycles, etc. Idk if the Helicopters are possible and surely not Boats, obviously. I've read that it's possible to do with a Helicopter and if so, I need to fix that in my Guide and explain the Method.

 

EDIT: Btw, if you could please let me know in my TBoGT Guide which Special Vehicles from the STORY MISSIONS are one time only and NOT obtainable on a Replay? I honestly think that every single Special Vehicle from I Luv LC up to Departure Time is obtainable on a Replay. Is it literally only Club Management and Random Encounter Special Vehicles that are one time only or is there a couple from the Story? Which are from the Story? Please answer in my TBoGT Guide. In a way, since everything other than Club Management Missions and Random Encounters can be obtained on a Replay, I don't really see any reason to do my TBoGT Save over with. I have 10 EC Vehicles from Drug Wars, however, those are probably better to get, since they are harder than anything from the Story since all the stuff from the Story can be obtained on a Replay, thus making it not even that Special and more to the side of Rare. In your TBoGT Guide, btw, you totally MISS adding in a Super GT being a Drug War Vehicle. You can find it, just like the F620 in the normal colors found in Drug Wars. If I do TBoGT over, I may just save the game in another Slot and KEEP the current Save I have since those 10 Drug War Vehicles in the same colors took AGES to find and are probably better than things from the Story since those are EASIER and ALSO CAN BE OBTAINED ANY TIME, even after 100%...

Regarding alternate saves for special vehicles, there are two different kinds I refer to:

-Incremental saves are what I described initially. These are saves at certain semi-arbitrary benchmarks for the purpose of a "chronicle" of my progress and to make use of the save slots available. I've done these since GTA3 and VC. These are ones like mission 10, 22, 34, 46, 54, 66, 75, 87 in GTA4, which are various key breakpoints based on the mission list in my guide. 22 is Russian Revolution, letting me stay at Broker safehouse. 34 is Snow Storm, which is right after Puerto Rican Connection which unlocks a lot of random encounters and other things (along with Brujcie's missions, which unlock races, vigilante, most wanted), and also when the girlfriends can all be dated easily (I've tried to date Carmen prior to unlocking Algonquin, but it's practically impossible to pass the first date without better clothes from Algonquin).

 

It was only shortly before GTA5's release that I came up with the idea to use these incremental saves to store different sets of vehicles, whereas before I would only bother keeping the vehicles I intended to have on that save at 100%, leaving parking spots/garages vacant for much of the game.

 

For "alternate" saves like I just described (to get alternate vehicles, especially from revenge path), I do take it to 100%. I think my wording was unclear; when I said partial playthrough, I didn't mean I only played up until I got the vehicles, but rather I keep a "master" save from later in the game for the purpose of creating that alternate file. In this case, it's right before Tunnel of Death, because my main save will get the Police Stockade and the alternate will get red Biff, and also because there are otherwise 11 vehicles I need by the end of Tunnel of Death: three uniques (Roman's Taxi, Laundromat, Police Stockade) and 8 specials (random tuner Oracle, hybrid PCJ600 which isn't in my guide currently, white and black hybrid grill PMP 600s, lustered Contender and Stallion, lustered Lokus, and green/blue Rancher). So when I make that alternate save I can start from that "backup" file and not have to redo the first 60+ missions and the vast majority of side content (vigilante, most wanted, races, 100%ing friends and girlfriends, brucie exports, STEVIE'S 30 CAR THEFTS, etc). So that "alternate" save takes a LOT less time than a full new playthrough.

 

These are my techniques for how I play the game, and how I achieve my vehicle goals. In GTA5, I have two endgame saves: one on the Big Score subtle path (maximum number of missions + extra blank plate vehicle) and one on obvious path (for the Skylift).

 

 

To answer other questions:

Lustered silver Banshee: As far as I know, the Banshee in Hossan's stranger mission and Meltdown are the same. The luster is random, and silver vehicles are notoriously difficult to see a good luster on, that Banshee especially. Personally, I got a mild green lustered Banshee from Hossan, while one of my plays of Meltdown (trying to get a good luster on the Lokus) gave me a VERY noticeable blue luster on that Banshee. So it's possible, but a lot of possible luster colors probably aren't very visible on that car. GTA4's somewhat odd lighting doesn't help, either; pearlescents are much easier to see on GTA5, although I've also heard that the PS3 version's graphics are slightly different than 360, so that may result in other lighting differences.

 

 

For TBoGT, I may have been incorrect and all vehicles I think are obtainable via replays.

Btw, Most Wanted is something, like Pigeons and Stunt Jumps, that can be done right after "The Cousins Bellic" and before "It's Your Call." It does not need to be unlocked by any Story Mission. You can do 30 Most Wanted Criminals, 200 Pigeons, 50 Stunt Jumps, CUBED, Win at Darts, etc, etc all in the beginning and I have this all complete, except 126 Pigeons which I still need to get while I stay wanted with a 6 star wanted level. I've watched zmoonchild's entire playlist on Youtube literally 5 or 6 times straight for days until I learned how to stay alive and just do some pretty neat things, imo, with having a wanted level for so long and loosing it, storing a Maverick in the beginning, getting the Super GT from the Darren Covey Most Wanted, and maximizing all Weapons for each Weapon Slot with the Best Weapons. I am literally just missing the 126 Pigeons until it's complete at 11.95%. I am 9.45% right now. I will probably try and do that in the future to give me something to do.

 

Thank you. Now I know what you mean and it was very clear. Yeah, lol, Stevie's Car Thefts blow. They take so long and you just do it for useless money. Some of the Vehicles look badass in them, though. Just a handful, though. Btw, I believe I read in you Guide that on the FINAL Stevie Car Theft, that Vehicle you need to deliver to the Garage remains forever on the Map. It does NOT on PS3. I had the EC NRG 900 as the 30th Vehicle to deliver and wanted it to always spawn there, but it doesn't, lol...

 

But what about making the Helicopters AP? Possible?

 

Yeah, in terms of PS3 and IV, the graphics aren't very good, a lot of blur for some reason, looks a lot worse compared to PC and probably 360, but I am not positive. It's what I hear, though, and can clearly see on Youtube from people playing IV on PC compared to my PS3. I like it on PS3, though. Liberty City still looks great every time I play! :)

 

I am almost certain that is the case. So if pretty much ALL Story Mission Special Vehicles can be treated like a "Rare" Vehicle, what 16 Special Vehicles do you think are the MUST HAVE? Random Encounter Special Vehicles, Club Management Special Vehicles, and Unique Vehicles? Or do you think the Drug War EC Special Vehicles, despite also still "Rare" like the Story Missions in this case, would be a good choice to get and keep in the parking spaces? I agree with you about Special vs Rare and what each mean for IV, TLaD, and V, but since TBoGT has Replays and ALL Story Missions are obtainable through Replays, those Vehicles are more like "Rare" Vehicles so are EC Drug War Vehicles perhaps better to get since they take more time to find?

First of all, it's QUB3D, not CUBED. I had to clear up that disaster before I can address the main point of my post here.

 

 

YOU CAN ACTUALLY f*ckING DO THE MOST WANTED MISSIONS AT THE START? Sounds like I have a new challenge to further refine my master save, which I haven't touched since 2009...

 

Then I'll have to go update all my incremental files thus far, too. That'll be annoying.

I don't care what it's called "in game," it's still Cubed at the end of the day. Just like FBI, FIB, I don't care what people want to call it, same thing.

 

Of course you can. You need to manually type in a name and search on the Police Computer. You can't go to the "Most Wanted" tab to find the guy or it'll give you an error every time that early in the game.

 

 

 

It's not even that hard. I enjoyed doing some of the Stunt Jumps and Most Wanted with a six star Wanted Level, actually. I could probably use a Maverick and a Sniper Rifle for most of the remaining 126 Pigeons I have left, too, but the remaining are all in Algonquin and Alderney, of course.

I have a 53% Starter Save in III, 44% Starter Save in VC, 13.90% Starter Save in SA (Includes Big Smoke Passed and the EC2 Black Perennial Acquired + Rare Vehicles to Convert to EP/FP with Gray Imports). 48% Starter Save in LCS, 49.20% Starter Save in VCS, 9.45% Starter Save in IV (Not Complete - Missing 2.50% for the Remaining 126 Pigeons), 16.06% Starter Save in TLaD, 10.61% Starter Save in TBoGT, 31.86% Starter Save in CW, and 13.30% Starter Save in V. Literally, all 10 GTA's that I own have a Starter Save, 100% Save(s), etc, etc. I've been doing all of this the past years and trying to assemble the best Starter Saves and 100% Saves around, lol

 

EDIT: Guide Updated! I fixed some things like making note about the EC Light Blue and Lustered Super GT being unobtainable on PS3, the Property Terms to include "Lustered" and what it means, the proper terminology for each Special Vehicle listed in the Guide, and also gave credit to Lancet Jades Gamefaqs Guide at the top. Out of all my Guides, this one contains a lot of information from his Guide since I only ever obtained 10 Special Vehicles in IV, whereas there is around 100. He has more experience playing the game and knows more about the Special Vehicles in the game. He plays on Xbox 360 and I play on PS3, though, so there could be some differences for how to obtain some of the Special Vehicles.

Hey, not quite on the topic of special vehicles, but pertaining to a master save. You wouldn't happen to have, or know of, a map that shows all the icons you can reveal on the map at the start of the game, do you? I've gotten all the icons in Algonquin and Alderney that I know of, but I've never seen a map that shows ALL of them, to know if I actually have them all.

Honestly, just

. This is Part 1 of 70+ Videos for zmoonchild's Starter Save Videos on Youtube. By watching this, you learn where a lot of Weapon and Body Armor Locations are. He doesn't show ALL of them, of course, but the main ones since Ammo is shared between Weapons. Like, if you pick up a Desert Eagle, and then continue to pick up regular Pistols, the Ammo is added to the Deagle. Same applies to the Micro SMG and SMG, AK-47 and M4, etc, etc. He shows some in Broker/Dukes, Bohan, Algonquin, and Alderney while completing 11.95% which is the highest you can reach in IV. I have 9.45% so far since I need to still complete the remaining 126 Pigeons.

 

I also tried to find Maps on the Web, but everything was rather sh*tty and not much good Maps out there...

 

Btw, I am in the process of redoing my TLaD Save now! :D:p Already 52.27% and ready for the final 25 Gang Wars before moving on with the Story and Special Vehicles. Can't wait to get to Get Lost for the Laundromat and Prison Bus! ;)
