    1.0 Introduction
    
    Right then, with that out the way let me introduce myself. I am
    Psychotic34(no not literally, except on The Getaway...)<--- that joke worked
    better with the name I orignally wanted, which was Psychotic, but someone
    already had it(I wrote this before I signed up) so I put my lucky number
    on the end. Anyway, this is my second submission to gamefaqs but it's
    my first in-depth guide. You may remember my Vice City guide, which can
    be found at:
    
    
    I'm from the UK, and as this game is set in the UK I will use English words 
    eg Tyre instead of Tire.(That's the only vehicle related one I could think
    of!)
    
    This guide is all about the vehicles that feature in The Getaway, so don't
    expect me to tell you how to complete certain missions in this guide.

    - Any extra car colours
    
    I would be very happy to recieve them and will try to include as many
    as I can Just have the title of your email "The Getaway" or something 
    similar.I will try to reply to every E-mail, and I have so far but
    don't expect me to reply if I get 100 e-mails or something. I have 
    included every single Submission so far, so you probably won't get 
    turned down, unless you say something like "I discovered a Plane/Helicop-
    ter" etc. Also please include the name you would like to be credited
    as, because the fun thing about submitting stuff is having your name in
    a guide!*
    
    
    No Chain-Mails, Viruses etc please!(Not that anyone listens, I get loads
    of Viruses every day. Well, the most I've had in one day is 3, but I 
    think all the ones I've been sent is from a worm)

    1.0 3/1/03 The First Version! 
    
    1.1  3/2/03 Hmmmm.... Laziness aplenty, I really couldn't be bothered recently,
    so I am sure some of you had your e-mails sent to junk mail by hotmail and
    never were read by me. Ah well. Anyway, I corrected my stupidity on several
    occasions thanks to some nice people. Well, they might not be nice and they
    might just be saying that because they want to go "HA HA! You're stupid!"
    but I doubt this somewhat....
    I also completed the "other vehicles bit" well, nearly, I just couldn't find
    out which Jag was used in the Demo version, so some smart alec needs to find
    that out for me, danke schön! No wait, I can't talk in foreign languages, 
    just forget I said that.
    
    Although the date may say 3/2/03, it is now the 20th, and I didn't submit it.
    Oh well, I'm submitting this now anyway...

    2.0 Driving Tips
    Tips on how to drive cars, and vans and whatever. You may learn something,
    you may not.
    
    *****************************************************************************
    
    2.1 Basic Tips
    
    - The Indicators Tell you where to go
    
    If the Left indicator is Flashing, you will need to go left.
    If the Right indicator is Flashing, you will need to go right.
    If the left indicator is Flashing Frantically, you will need to go left and
    then make another left turn.
    If the right indicator is Flashing Frantically, you will need to go left and
    then make another right turn.
    If the Hazard Lights are Flashing, you will need to stop, as you have arrived
    at your destination.
    
    - We Drive on the Left in the(and to give it it's full title) United Kingdom
    of Great Britain and Northern Ireland(which is actually stupid, since Northern
    Ireland is part of Great Britain), you know. So don't drive on the right, or
    you will end up meeting with oncoming traffic, which is never pretty.
    
    Well, I am silly, and here is why:
    
    well... Northern Ireland is in no way a part of Great Britain. Great Britain 
    is 
    
    - England, Wales & Scotland (as set up by the Union act of 1772 - or around
    about that year). Northern Ireland was added separately to the title after 
    1920
    when the Republic of Ireland gained independence from the British Empire.
     
    Hense The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.
     
    I know its REALLY, REALLY picky - but I dont want Americans getting wrong
    information about us. Although admittedly most of them couldnt point us 
    out on a World map.
     
    Many thanks
     
    A 'Getaway' lover.
    
    On the Getaway message board, I saw a post that was something like "LOL!
    British people  drive on the left!!!11" (It had 11). Posts by Americans 
    like these do irritate me, but I am pleased to say the vast majority of 
    Americans are not arrogant, so well done USA.
    
    - "One way, there is a sign!" One Way streets are extremely annoying, as 
    for me at least, I only notice I am on them when I am going down them the
    wrong way. The only way to tell if the street is a one way street is if it is
    a narrow street, cars will only be going in one direction. I always go down
    them though, and stick to the pavement
    
    - Pick a decent car. Although picking big fast cars is always fun, sometimes
    it is easier to choose a smaller car, as you can weave in and out of traffic
    more easily, rather than smash into them. Remember, there isn't enough space
    on a lot of roads for you to just go speeding off.
    
    - Try to stay down the middle of the road, if possible. Obviously trying to
    do this is incredibly stupid if there are railings down the middle of it, as
    smashing into Railings will only lead to one thing. If there are things like
    Traffic Bollards or Cones, keep going, you can easily knock them out the way,
    but things like traffic lights aren't going to move for you, so dodge them. 
    
    - If you can't go down the middle of the road, then the best place for you
    to go is on the pavement, as pedestrians will cause a lot less damage to 
    your car than hitting a railing would. Running down people does not impress
    the Police however, and they will chase you and then shoot you(or hit you
    with their truncheon) when they can. And hitting pedestrians does damage your
    car, and don't forget that there are also things like trees on the pavement
    (strange I know) and also lamposts. Colliding with one of them isn't really
    recommended.You can hit bins though, as they will just bounce up like traffic
    bollards or traffic cones
    
    - Speed is all very well and good, and is OK if you want to get somewhere in
    a hurry, like if you are on a timed mission or gangs are chasing you and 
    trying to kill you, but it isn't suited to most of London's roads, so just
    tone down your speed if you want to keep your nice shiny new car for a bit 
    longer. Of course, not speeding in a TVR Cerbera is like not playing a 
    decent PS2 Game(I would say Vice City, but meh) like The Getaway if you own
    a PS2. The best Place to do it is the enbankment(Road that runs along the
    river on the north side)
    
    A sent in driving tip, yes:
    
    Just read your driving and car guide (very well done).  I recently found
    something that you didn't mention in your guide.  With decent and good front
    wheel drive cars (anyone that wheel spins from a standing start which is
    almost all except the micra and Saxo) if you hold down the handbrake and
    power down until the car creeps forward then let go of the handbrake your
    car will instantly go to third gear and reach top speed in nano seconds.
    Just be carefull not to turn at the same time unless your in a open space.
    
    DVS.
    
    Well, there you go. Try it some time.
    
    *****************************************************************************
    
    2.2 Avoiding Someone
    
    Throughout the Getaway, people in cars are likely to want to knock you off
    the road and shoot you, so here are some tips on how to stop them getting
    you.
    
    - The Evasion
    When a car is chasing you, it is likely to pull out in front of you, skid 
    sideways and block your route. Also, they will always do this if they are
    coming towards you from in-front. The best thing to do is to put on the 
    brakes, as you won't go flying into them, and then you can just go around 
    them very easily. Any other Purusing cars could also end up smashing into
    that car, which effectively removes them both from the chase. 
    
    - The Road Block
    The Police like setting up road blocks if you are doing the missions, and
    there are two kinds. 
    If they are not chasing you, they will just set one up with the Peugeot 306's
    and maybe a Van. There won't be a stinger, so you can just drive on through 
    the gap. The Cops may begin to chase you(but not the roadblock cops) or 
    they may just ignore you. There are also armed cops there. If you were to
    kill one of them by running him down(or by any other method) or if you went
    and smashed right into one of the cars, the obviously, they would chase you.
    (Again, not the Roadblock Cops)
    The second kind usually contains two marked Police Vectras, a Van which is 
    on the Pavement, and a stinger. Or, if it is a wide road it might have an 
    extra Vectra or Van, and an extra stinger. When I first encountered these,
    I would fall for it, thinking "Ha, you left a space clear, morons!" and
    then wonder why my car had suddenly stopped. Do not go over the stingers at
    all costs! here's what you do in order of preference:
    
    1) Sometimes Cops leave a gap in between a Vectra and a Stinger. This can
    be used to your advantage, especially if the gap is big enough for you to get
    through, but although it sometimes does happen, it is very rare. Usually there
    will be enough of a gap for you to clip the Police Car, which isn't a problem.
    Do this, then quickly swerve back across the road so that you are lined up 
    with the stinger, and any pursuing cars(which there will be if you see this 
    kind of roadblock) are likely to go over the stingers and stop!
    
    2) The next best thing to do if there is no gap is to hit the rear end of
    one of the Vectras, so it goes spinning out of your way, so you can make
    it through without major damage.
    
    3) On some roads, the Vectras could be in front of railings, so ramming them
    will just result in you being stuck against them, and then probably being 
    sandwiched as another cop car slams into you. The best thing to do is to hit
    the Van, as it will always be on the pavement facing away from you. You can
    barge it out of the way quickly if you are going fast, and continue in your
    escape from the Police.
    
    - The Lure
    A good way of removing cars that are hot on your tail is to lure them into 
    things. For example, driving fast down the road, line yourself up with a
    set of railings that is about to come down the middle of the road. Try to 
    stay slightly to the left of them if you can, then quickly swerve to the left
    just before you hit it, so that the car behind you slams into the railings,
    destroying their car. You must go to the left, because usually cars that 
    follow you tend to stay on your right, especially when they overtake you. 
    Another example of doing this, is to go down the pavement on the left hand 
    sdie, so that your car is merely inches away from scraping the wall, because
    any pursuing car is likely to slam head on into any Lamposts which tend to
    be on the right hand side of the pavement(closest to the road) and you can
    lose them that way.A third way is to lure them to smash into traffic, the
    bigger the vehicle they smash into, the better! Like a London Bus for 
    example!
    
    - The Weave
    Another way of losing any pursuers, is to weave in and out of a traffic jam.
    Obviously, a small car like a Daihatsu Sirion, a Citroen Saxo, a Peugeot 306
    or a Nissan Micra etc will be the best at this. Any pursuers, unless they are
    Ordinary road cops (Usually this will be on Free Roaming Mode or at the very 
    start of a chase) will be in big chunky cars, so they can't move in and out 
    of traffic easily. They will end up smashing into one of the cars there, no
    problem, whilst you make your speedy getaway!
    
    - Playing them against each other
    If you have both a gang(or even two, but that hasn't ever happened to me) and
    the Cops chasing you, stop, wait for them to get out of their cars and shoot
    at you, then drive(you, not them) a little way down the road. They will ignore
    you and go for each other, but beware, when one side is dead, the other one
    will go after you, so drive away when one side has been reduced to one man.
    
    *****************************************************************************
    
    2.3 Car Damage
    
    - Engine Damage 
    Engine damage consists of four main stages:
    
    Undamaged - no smoke. If there is no smoke coming out of the engine, then the
    car is fine, and you can continue going as normal
    
    Slightly Damaged - White Smoke. The car is likely to be in this state if you
    have managed to smash it into something. The car will run perfectly fine, 
    but it could change into the next state very easily, especially if you over
    exert the car
    
    Severely Damaged - Black/Grey Smoke. The car will be in this state if you
    have been involved in a particulary nasty accident, or if you have been at
    the previous stage. The car will continue to run, but very slowly. The best
    thing to do here is to put your wrecked car in front of another car 
    (preferably one you want) then get out and take the new car.
    
    Burning up! - Flames. A quick warning of just before this happens is when
    the controller starts to vibrate, and also when characters say a comment 
    like "Shit, help me!"(Mark Hammond). When this, happens, stop and get out
    *immediately* or you will perish in the flames. You can do this to other 
    people when they are in their cars and they crall out in flames
    
    Engine damage can be caused by either car crashes or gun fire, but that 
    depends on where the bullets hit the car.
    
    - Tyre Damage
    There are 3 "stages" of Tyre damage, but they aren't really linked because
    one will neccessarily lead to another, though it sometimes can.
    
    Driving to one side - This is the most common tyre related problem that 
    you will face, and the car will begin to shift to the opposite side to
    where a tyre has blownout. Tyres usually blow out after Police/Gangs shoot
    them(they have a nasty habit of doing that). I continue on regardless of this,
    so really you should too. On certain missions where Police and gangs are 
    chasing you at the same time, such as at the end of Art Appreciation, your
    new car is likely to get this straight away, as the cops/gangs will be shooting
    you like hell when you get in the car, but will aim for the tyres. 
    
    Driving on Rims - This is basically has the same effects as before I think,
    I haven't really tested it to be honest. I imagine you would drive more 
    slowly, but when it's happened to me, it wasn't really noticeable. It will
    happen after a while when one of your tyres has burst, eventually it will
    fall off (though I haven't actually seen this, it's what has to happen) and
    the rim will be left to drive on the road, causing sparks to fly, which is
    pretty cool. 
    
    Multiple Tyres Burst - Now is the time to get out. If 3 or 4 tyres have been
    burst, the car will drive very slowly or grind to a halt. You can get away
    (no pun intended) with two tyres burst, especially if they are on the same 
    side of the car, but the car will drive to one side even more
    
    - Window Damage
    All the windows in the car can be shattered, which ususally happens because
    of gun fire. You may be able to do this whilst crashing, I haven't really
    tested this either. All the windows of most regular cars can be smashed, 
    and it usually requires 3 shots. Each shot will leave a hole in the window
    at the exact spot where it was fired, which is cool and the first shot will
    cause the window to "fragment" Both you and other people can be shot inside
    vehicles, so look out and do it to other people I guess. This will not lead
    to the car setting on fire.
    
    - Body Damage
    When you crash a car into things, it visibly begins to get crumpled at the
    point of impact, typically at the front or back. This is usually what leads to
    the engine damage of the car.
    
    - Light Damage
    Lights on the car, such as headlights, reverse lights, brake lights, indicator
    lights and sirens on Police Vehicles can be damaged and put out of action.
    This is especially annoying if your indicators have been destroyed(and you
    didn't notice, because they weren't flashing before). There is a simple 
    test to see whether your indicator lights have been taken out, and that is
    to make a left turn, and see if your indicators flash right(unless you had
    to take a left turn, but you'd know that if your indicators were working,
    I could go on in a boring manner explaining how this all works, but I really
    can't be bothered)

    3.0 Full Vehicle List
    
    In this I decided to include every single vehicle, for reference. This means
    that although there are other categories like "Emergency Vehicles" for 
    example, things like Police Cars will appear in this list. All cars will
    be listed in alphabetical order, and will be assessed under the following
    criteria (makes me sound like a driving instructor or something)
    
    Note, this is all false! FALSE FALES FALSE! no, not the guide itself, this
    demo example, although the criteria will remain the same, got it?
    
    Name: eg Steamroller!
    Most likely to be found: eg In the River! 
    Colours found in:eg Pink, Brown, Orange. (any I know of, I can't list them all if
    I don't know them all!)
    Speed:eg 6/10 it goes quite fast, doesn't it?
    Acceleration:eg 2/10 damn slow off the mark
    Handling:eg 1/10 Like a dead Whale
    Durablity:eg 10/10 It'll take a fair few hits
    Looks:eg 5/10 Like a Steamroller!
    The Steamroller is a car. Well no, it isn't. I wouldn't really use one to 
    escape in. It basically looks like a steamroller, and if you don't know what
    one of them is, then I feel sorry for you, really I do.
    
    And with no further wait, here they all are!
    
    Name:Alfa Romeo 156
    Most Likely to be Found:They can be found nearly everywhere, so just look!
    Colours found in:Green, Light Blue, a Sickly Green.
    Speed:7/10 Quite Fast
    Acceleration:6/10 Again, it isn't a slow car
    Handling:4/10 nothing too special
    Durability:5/10 it can take enough damage to last a while
    Looks:5/10 I don't really like it all that much
    This car is owned by Mark Hammond, or at least I think it is. It's the car
    he first uses to pursue Charlie's boys (and girl) when they kidnap Alex, so
    that's why I'm going to assume it. It's the only Alpha Romeo in the game, it
    isn't a bad car, but it isn't what I'd call world class either.
    
    Name:Ambulance
    Most Likely to be Found:Around the Hospital(usually in pairs) which is on
    Tottenham Court road, if memory serves me correct
    Colours found in:White, with ambulance insignia on it
    Speed:4/10 Not all that fast
    Acceleration:3/10 Again, it isn't exactly a Ferrari
    Handling:3/10 Not all that good
    Durability:7/10 It knows how to take a hit
    Looks:4/10 Ambulances are ugly, but I guess it's cool driving around in one.
    This is an Ambulance! they are driven only by paramedics. You can also 
    activate the siren with the L3. It's ironic because in one of Carter's 
    missions where you have to take Joe to the hospital, Carter says "I won't
    wait for the Ambulance" even though when you go down the road, there's loads
    all driving together.
    
    Name:Bus
    Most Likely to be Found:All over, but there's a lot in Southwark if you ask
    me
    Colours found in:Red
    Speed:*Unknown* I'd estimate 3/10
    Acceleration:*Unknown* I'd estimate 3/10
    Handling:*Unknown* I'd estimate 2/10
    Durability:*Unknown* I'd estimate 7/10
    Looks:4/10 I do know this one! It looks ugly
    For some reason known only to Team Soho, you can't actually get into the
    single-decker buses. Where I live, these are white, but in London presumably
    they are red.
    
    OK, see "Other vehicle" section for some notes on buses
    
    Name:Brabus A-Class
    Most Likely to be Found:Hyde Park, the Mall
    Colours found in:Black, White
    Speed:6/10 Fairly Fast Little Motor
    Acceleration:5/10 Kinda quick
    Handling:6/10 she can go round corners OK
    Durability:4/10 can't take too many collisions
    Looks:4/10 Ugly
    This is a modified Mercedes A-Class and was a very clever thing for Team Soho
    to do by slipping this one in under the manufacturer, Brabus. It's an OK ride
    I guess
    
    Name:Brabus S-Class
    Most Likely to be Found:Yardie Turf, ie Clerkerwell
    Colours found in:Silver
    Speed:8/10 vrroom!
    Acceleration:7/10 again, it's fast!
    Handling:5/10 nothing wrong with the handling
    Durability:4/10 Slamming it into things isn't the best of ideas
    Looks:7/10 nice!
    This is a car used exclusively by the Yardies(In that I haven't seen anyone
    else using them). Good to cruise around in, but it isn't fun when they are
    chasing you as they are lightning quick.It's a modified Mercedes SL.It's
    the Yardies "second choice" car.
    
    Name:Citroen Saxo
    Most Likely to be Found:Around the West side of London
    Colours found in:Blue, Orange, Purple
    Speed:5/10 Average
    Acceleration:6/10 Not too slow off the mark
    Handling:8/10 very good!
    Durability:3/10 Not exactly a Tank
    Looks:6/10 Not all that bad
    The only car in the game from Citroen, and it is best suited to weaving in
    and out of traffic. It's a fairly small car, which probably explains why.
    
    Name:Daihatsu Hi-Jets
    Most Likely to be Found:Industrial Areas
    Colours found in:White usually, ocassionally a Dirty Yellow Colour or a blue
    Speed:2/10 not fast
    Acceleration:2/10 again, not your ideal racing car
    Handling:5/10 not all that bad
    Durability:5/10 It can take a few hits
    Looks:0/10 Ugh, I hate these vans!
    This is basically an Egg-Shaped Van, and I hate them, they look ugly, they're
    slow, and are to be used only at your most desperate hour!
    
    Name:Daihatsu Hi-Jets Pick-up
    Most Likely to be Found:2 or 3 places in Hyde Park. One of them is at a depot
    of vans, another is behind a few trees and a smallish building on next to a
    path. I think I found a third location, but 
    a) I can't remember where it was
    b) it could have just been the second one
    Although Hyde Park is a maze, I know that I always stumble across them at some
    point or another.
    Colours found in:White, with Royal Parks insignia.
    Speed:4/10 Perhaps a bit faster than the Hi-jets van
    Acceleration:2/10 very slow starter though
    Handling:5/10 reasonable
    Durability:5/10 again, it isn't all that bad
    Looks:2/10 but only because it has grass/leaves in the back!
    This could be a rare vehicle, although I know that I have stumbled across
    them during missions. They can't be seen driving around, and are basically
    a Daihatsu Hi-Jets modified into a pick-up truck. it has grass/leaves in
    the back though! which is a good thing, maybe. At least that feature is 
    unique!
    
    Name:Daihatsu Sirion
    Most Likely to be Found:All over the place
    Colours found in:A lot! (red, green, blue, I'm pretty certain I have seen
    black ones and white ones)
    Speed:4/10 Not too bad
    Acceleration:5/10 slightly better
    Handling:8/10 very good for weaving in and out of traffic
    Durability:4/10 not very durable though
    Looks:5/10 Exactly like a New Mini!
    I went through most of the game believing these were New Minis, until on
    the radio, I heard the Police Traffic Control or whatever they are called
    say "driving a red sirion". I'd never even heard of these before, so I had
    to do a search on the net. Anyway, just pretend they are new-minis, I know
    I do!
    
    Name:Double Decker Bus
    Most Likely to be Found:Everywhere, in the Bus Lane.
    Colours found in:Red, and they have 3 different adverts(see below)
    Speed:3/10 Like a Bus
    Acceleration:3/10 Like a Bus
    Handling:2/10 Like a Bus
    Durability:9/10 like a Bus
    Looks:4/10 Like a Bus!!! I gave it an extra mark because they're famous and
    it's cool to drive one
    London Buses are very common in The Getaway, and are usually seen in the Bus
    Lane. The 3 adverts on them, in order of commoness are:
    1) "Natural Blonde Killer" an advert for the Musical, Chicago.
    2) "Abba-solutely Fabulous" an advert for the Musical, Mama Mia
    3) This is Football 2003, a game made by SCEE
    
    Name:Fiat Punto
    Most Likely to be Found:Again, everywhere
    Colours found in:Yellow, Brick-Red/Orange Light Blue
    Speed:5/10 It's a smallish car
    Acceleration:4/10 that isn't very fast
    Handling:8/10 Nice Handling though!
    Durability:4/10 not nice durablity however
    Looks:3/10 Ugly! It gained a mark because a lot of people where I live used to
    drive them(Now it's all Ford Fiesta/Ka/Focuses or Peugeot 206S) in like 1996.
    It's basically an ugly Fiat, like most Fiats really (can you believe that they
    own Ferrari with all those ugly cars!?). The back Slopes down is a brief 
    description, they are good for weaving in and out of traffic with I suppose
    
    Name:Fire Engine
    Most Likely to be Found:On Disturbance in Soho, a bit down the street from the
    Republic.
    Colours found in:Red, with Fire Engine Insignia on it
    Speed:4/10 Won't get to every fire on time
    Acceleration:4/10 no wonder they're on strike!
    Handling:3/10 not all that good!
    Durability:9/10 It's a nice Behemoth in this department though!
    Looks:5/10 Fire Engines are kinda cool
    Basically, it's a vehicle in which firefighters clamber into to go out and
    put out fires. Unfortunately, there are none on the streets, so they must
    all be on strike, heh! (Firemen have been on strike in the UK recently in
    case you didn't know)It has a Siren though!
    
    Name:Golf Buggy/Cart (whatever you want to call it)
    Most Likely to be Found:It's in the northern Area of Hyde Park, near a 
    set of crossroads. Just follow the yellow path until it is crossed over
    by a grey one, take the grey path down till you get to a set of crossroads,
    and it's to the left, in front of you hidden behind a group of bushes.
    Colours found in:White, with insignia on the small door
    Speed:6/10 not too bad when it gets going
    Acceleration:4/10 it's a golf buggy, don't expect it to be a Ferrari
    Handling:4/10 It's small Tyres mean it has low grip
    Durability:3/10 Can't take all that much either
    Looks:4/10 Like A Golf Cart
    This is the only one of three times I intend to mention GTA Vice city in
    this section, so bear with me. It's exactly like a "Caddy" From that game, 
    except this one has a door. Basically, it's for transporting Golfers and
    there equipment around courses, not hardened criminals on the run from 
    the Police and an Army of gangs!
    
    Name:Go-Kart
    Most Likely to be Found:Mansion on Bayswater road, just follow the road
    along until you can go south, keep going and you will see what I can best
    describe as a "rounded" road, which has a blue-ish fence next to it. There
    s a gap in this fence, go through it, along the path until you get to a 
    mansion with two sports cars sitting outside. Look in the garage(do a 180
    from where you entered) and look in the corner.
    Colours found in:Um, I can't give it a colour really.
    Speed:7/10 Not Bad!
    Acceleration:7/10 Nice for a go-kart
    Handling:4/10 like the Golf Buggy It's small Tyres mean it has low grip,
    but this adds to the fun!
    Durability:3/10 don't expect to collide head on with a Double Decker and
    come out the better off of the two!
    Looks:7/10 It's a Go-Kart! very nice!
    It has an invisible door! spooky! This is a great, original idea, and I like
    it, especially it's crazy handling. It's not wholly an ideal getaway car,
    because It can't take many hits, but it could squeze through gaps in traffic
    easily!
    
    Name:Honda Accord
    Most Likely to be Found:The Borough Area
    Colours found in:The vast majority are a sickly green or a pale blue
    Speed:5/10 I've seen worse...
    Acceleration:5/10 ... but I've also seen better!
    Handling:5/10 OK I guess
    Durability:7/10 Takes more hits that I thought it would have done!
    Looks:3/10 Not all that good
    It doesn't look particulary new, It looks like it is from the mid-1980's 
    and drives how you would expect a car from that era to drive!
    
    Name:Honda Civic
    Most Likely to be Found:Triad Turf, which is very hard to pinpoint! I think
    there is one in the underground NCP
    Colours found in:Green, Purple(If the ones outside the crack house are Accords
    which I always thought they were, I didn't get a close look really)
    Speed:8/10 As you'd expect for
    Acceleration:7/10 a Triad car
    Handling:4/10 Doesn't take corners well
    Durability:6/10 Not all that bad really
    Looks:6/10 Not too bad!
    It's the Triads "second choice" car, and is reasonably fast, which isn't
    good when they are pursuing you and hunting you down! Still, it's Honda's
    best car in the game.
    
    Name:Jensen Interceptor
    Most Likely to be Found:North, look around King's Cross St. Pancras Station,
    I know I usually find them around there
    Colours found in:A horrible brown! also Banana Yellow and Red
    Speed:7/10 Quite Fast
    Acceleration:6/10 For an Old banger!
    Handling:4/10 Still, the handling is old
    Durability:4/10 and it can't take too many hits
    Looks:4/10 It has a large rear windscreen, and what's with the colour!?!?!
    Not bad in terms of sheer speed, but lacking in handling and durability, and
    a lack in all of these areas is a recipie for disaster!
    
    Name:Jensen SV8
    Most Likely to be Found:Mayfair, City of London
    Colours found in:Green, Blue
    Speed:6/10 Speedy
    Acceleration:7/10 For an Old banger!
    Handling:5/10 Not too bad actually
    Durability:4/10 Can't take a lot of hits
    Looks:7/10 2 Seater Sports Car
    Basically, this is the other Jensen Car in the game. Again, it's good and
    speedy, but is lacking slightly on other fronts.
    
    Name:Lexus IS200 
    Most Likely to be Found:Everywhere
    Colours found in:Silver,Blue
    Speed:7/10 Reasonably 
    Acceleration:8/10 Fast
    Handling:5/10 not too bad
    Durability:5/10 Can't take many hits
    Looks:5/10 Not too bad
    This is just a basic Lexus car, it's the only non-gang one however, and
    is often cruising down the starting street for free-roaming mode, 
    Malborough Road.
    
    Name:Lexus LS430 
    Most Likely to be Found:Bethnall Green Mob Turf, ie South of the River
    Non-Gang Version in Soho
    Colours found in:Silver/Cream
    Speed:8/10 It has to be fast
    Acceleration:8/10 because it's a gang car
    Handling:4/10 a bit ropey
    Durability:7/10 It takes a bit of punishment though
    Looks:6/10 Better than the IS200
    This is the Bethnall Green Mobs "Primary Car" and is suprisingly able
    to take a fair amount of punishment before giving in.
    
    *Thanks to the pornicater for pointing out my error*
    
    Name:Lexus SC430 
    Most Likely to be Found:Collins Gang Turf, ie Soho
    Colours found in:Dark Blue, White
    Speed:7/10 Quite 
    Acceleration:8/10 Nippy
    Handling:6/10 It can handle corners OK
    Durability:5/10 Not too durable
    Looks:8/10 Quite nice!
    This is the Collins gang car, and to make up for the fact that they
    only have one car, it has two colours instead. A nice car on which you
    can rely on to make an escape
    
    Name:Lorry
    Most Likely to be Found:Industrial Areas
    Colours found in:White, with company name(random each time) on side
    Speed:3/10 It's a Lorry
    Acceleration:3/10 So don't hold your breath
    Handling:3/10 Poor
    Durability:9/10 Go on, get in it's way, I dare you!
    Looks:3/10 Like a Lorry
    This is basically a Lorry of an unknown manufacturer. Like the London Bus,
    you get an inside erm cockpit I suppose is the right word for it, view.
    
    Name:Lotus Elise
    Most Likely to be Found:Mansion on Bayswater road, just follow the road
    along until you can go south, keep going and you will see what I can best
    describe as a "rounded" road, which has a blue-ish fence next to it. There
    s a gap in this fence, go through it, along the path until you get to a 
    mansion with two sports cars sitting outside. Look in the garage and you will
    see it. The second is at the lock-up of Charlie's that Frank Carter raided on
    the mission "The Jolson Files"
    Colours found in:White
    Speed:9/10 nnnniiii
    Acceleration:9/10 cccceeee!!!!
    Handling:5/10 not all that bad!
    Durability:5/10 can't take a lot of hits!
    Looks:9/10 Sweet! First thing:It has doors like the Delorean in Back to the
    Future, in that they open vertically, and Second Thing:Second mention of
    GTA Vice City out of three, it looks just like an Infernus
    This thing is FAST! it's a very nice car to cruise around in, because it
    looks so cool, and also it's a good getaway car too. It and the TVR seem
    to be Twins, they always follow each other around, except in one place, no
    wait, two places where the TVR is on it's own.
    
    Name:Lotus Elite
    Most Likely to be Found:City of London
    Colours found in:Green
    Speed:7/10 Kinda Fast
    Acceleration:8/10 Kinda Fast again
    Handling:3/10 Not too easy to get to grips with
    Durability:4/10 Can't take being hit too often all that well
    Looks:7/10 Classic Sports Car!
    The Above statement of "Classic Sports Car" basically sums up the Lotus
    Elite well, it's not as good as the Elise or the Espirit, and lacks modern
    steering aids
    
    Name:Lotus Espirit
    Most Likely to be Found:If you head along Marylebone Road, in the district of
    believe it or not, Marylebone. Head West along this road, and a little alley
    should be on your right, which is where a certain car is
    Colours found in:Silver
    Speed:8/10 Good
    Acceleration:8/10 All Lotuses have good acceleration!
    Handling:5/10 And Fairly Good Handling
    Durability:5/10 But can't take much damage!
    Looks:7/10 They always look good though
    This is another Hidden Lotus Car(One more still to come!) and it's basically
    a typical Lotus for all the points which I just summed up, a nice car if 
    you want to just cruise the streets of London.
    
    Name:Lotus 7 MKII Roadster 
    Most Likely to be Found:You start with it in Free Roaming Mode
    Colours found in:Purple
    Speed:8/10 Fast
    Acceleration:9/10 Fast 
    Handling:4/10 Nicht zu gut
    Durability:3/10 doesn't survive many hits
    Looks:8/10 Slick!
    This is called a "roadster" but I cannot see how! I think I can honestly
    say that other than on The Getaway, I have NEVER seen one on the roads! 
    It's more of a racing car, really.In GTA:London (not a reference to the
    modern version) it was called the "Locust 7" So I guess it could have
    been on the streets in 1969, but now it is 2003, so it's unlikely that there
    are any on the roads today.
    
    Name:MG ZT
    Most Likely to be Found:City of London
    Colours found in:Light Blue, Light yellow
    Speed:7/10 Nice, Nippy
    Acceleration:6/10 Car!
    Handling:5/10 Not too bad really
    Durability:5/10 Can take several hits
    Looks:7/10 Very nice indeed!
    The only MG Car in the game, It's a shame that other MGs aren't in it, but
    this one will have to do. Not that I'm complaining, it's quite a nice car
    and not too bad as a getaway vehicle
    
    Name:Nissan Micra
    Most Likely to be Found:Anywhere North of the River
    Colours found in:Light Blue, Green
    Speed:4/10 Quite Slow
    Acceleration:5/10 Same
    Handling:8/10 Good Handling though
    Durability:3/10 Can't take a lot of hits
    Looks:5/10 Nothing Special, Nothing overly ugly
    Basically it's a small city car, which although is slow, it's a brilliant
    vehicle for weaving in and out of traffic with
    
    Name:Nissan Skyline GTR
    Most Likely to be Found:Piccadily Circus, Triad Turf. A hidden one can be 
    found in this location. Mansion on Bayswater road, just follow the road
    along until you can go south, keep going and you will see what I can best
    describe as a "rounded" road, which has a blue-ish fence next to it. There
    s a gap in this fence, go through it, along the path until you get to a 
    mansion with two sports cars sitting outside. The white one on the left is
    the Skyline.
    Colours found in:Black/White
    Speed:7/10 Fairly Fast
    Acceleration:8/10 Quick off the mark
    Handling:5/10 OK, there are worse than it
    Durability:5/10 Again, there are less durable cars
    Looks:6/10 not too bad!
    This is the Triads "primary car" and they use it a lot. They can often be seen
    around Piccadilly Circus, for some unknown reason. The Skyline is a fairly
    fast car, and is fun to race around London in. It also makes a good getaway
    Vehicle.
    
    Name:Peugeot 306
    Most Likely to be Found:Anywhere North of the River
    Colours found in:Red, Brownish-Yellow
    Speed:6/10 OK for a small car
    Acceleration:5/10 Fairly Average
    Handling:8/10 Very Nice Handling
    Durability:4/10 Can take a little bit of damage
    Looks:5/10 OK, it has a "GB" Car sticker on the back which is kinda cool!
    This is probably the best of the small City Cars, which is probably why
    the Police use it(in this game at least) As I said before, every eingle one 
    of these has a "GB" Sticker on it, which is kinda weird but also kinda cool
    
    Name:Peugeot 306 "Boy Racer"
    Most Likely to be Found:If you go to Horseferry Road(J14) on the south side
    of this road is an alley leading to a small underground car park with some
    burnt out cars in it. The boy racer is hidden behind a wall and is tucked
    into a corner
    Colours found in:Yellow
    Speed:7/10 It's been Souped up!
    Acceleration:7/10 So what do you expect?
    Handling:8/10 Good handling 
    Durability:4/10 Shame it can't take much damage
    Looks:7/10 So Cool! Well, it's a good imitation of a Boy Racer car, what with
    the Spoiler and the Speakers in the back and everything!
    This is probably the best of the three Peugeot 306's, but I wouldn't ever
    consider showing off to your mates in a REAL boy racer car, because everyone
    laughs at boy racers! At least I do. This isn't a pure Boy Racer car, it needs
    to be an older model of car
    
    Name:Police Peugeot 306
    Most Likely to be Found:All over the City
    Colours found in:White, with fluorescant yellow bands on the side, Police 
    markings.
    Speed:6/10 OK for a small car
    Acceleration:5/10 Fairly Average
    Handling:8/10 Very Nice Handling
    Durability:5/10 Can take a little bit more damage
    Looks:5/10 OK, it isn't an especially nice Police Car
    This is just the basic Partol Car, so don't expect Cops in this to be
    chasing you for very long unless you are in Free Roaming Mode, but even
    then you can lose them because they aren't in an especially fast car. L3
    activates it's siren.
    
    Name:Police Van
    Most Likely to be Found:In roadblocks
    Colours found in:White, basic Police livery
    Speed:4/10 It's a van
    Acceleration:5/10 But it goes OK 
    Handling:4/10 Not too hot on corners
    Durability:8/10 It can take punishment though!
    Looks:6/10 It's cool driving in one of these!
    It's your basic Police Riot Van, used to take Officers to places where there
    are, well riots! In real life, they also have a cage at the back where 
    Prisoners go. L3 turns on it's siren.
    
    Name:Police Vauxhall Vectra
    Most Likely to be Found:When you've been misbehaving, which tends to happen
    all to frequently
    Colours found in:White, with an Fluorescant Orange/Red Stripe down it
    Speed:7/10 Hey, the Cops need to keep up with you!
    Acceleration:9/10 Extremely quick to get to top speed
    Handling:5/10 Fairly good
    Durability:6/10 Knows how to take Punishment
    Looks:6/10 I guess they look kinda cool
    A good all-round car, and easily the best Police and indeed emergency 
    services vehicle in the game. Unfortunately, you can't see them for love or
    money in Freeroaming mode.L3 activates it's siren.
    
    Name:Prison Transport Van
    Most Likely to be Found:On the missions "Aiding and Abetting" and "Escort 
    Duty" 
    Colours found in:Grey
    Speed:*estimate* 4/10
    Acceleration:*estimate* 4/10
    Handling:*estimate* 4/10
    Durability:*estimate* 8/10
    Looks:6/10 Kinda cool, it's the type of Van serial killers get put in
    Basically, I have been unable to capture one and steal it, as in both 
    missions the thing drives off like a bullet, and even if you smash it off
    the road it will find a way through. At the time, Jake Jolson is contained
    within the van.
    
    Name:Range Rover
    Most Likely to be Found:East-End, Also south of the river
    Colours found in:Silver, Brown, Green
    Speed:4/10 Nothing
    Acceleration:5/10 Special
    Handling:6/10 Not too bad, but the vehicle itself is very wide
    Durability:7/10 Can take several hits before going down
    Looks:5/10 OK I suppose
    This is basically a Land Rover or as people from the USA call them, an "SUV"
    basically it's the kinda thing you'd wantif you lived in somewhere with bad
    terrain, not in an urban area(even though many people choose to have them in
    urban areas anyway, which kinda undermines the point of them)
    
    Name:Renault Espace
    Most Likely to be Found:North of the river, mainly
    Colours found in:Green, Blue
    Speed:5/10 Nothing Special
    Acceleration:5/10 Again, just average
    Handling:4/10 nothing special again
    Durability:6/10 it's average!
    Looks:4/10 Average
    The word average really does sum up this people carrier, I can't really see
    why anyone would want to drive one, but if it's the only vehicle near you,
    then go for it.
    
    Name:Renault Laguna Estate
    Most Likely to be Found:North of the River, look around Hyde Park
    Colours found in:Green, Light Blue, a silverish colour
    Speed:6/10 Not too bad
    Acceleration:5/10 reasonable
    Handling:6/10 Fair
    Durability:5/10 OK
    Looks:5/10 
    This car is just slightly above average, and is Renault's best car in the 
    game. It's one of two estate cars in the game, and if it's the nearest thing
    to you, then go for it!
    
    Name:Rover SD1 Yardie edition
    Most Likely to be Found:Clerkenwell - Yardie Turf
    Colours found in:Purple, with yellow wheels
    Speed:7/10 Fast again
    Acceleration:8/10 Average gang car really
    Handling:5/10 OK handling
    Durability:6/10 OK Durability
    Looks:7/10 It has a unqiue charm I guess
    This is the Yardies "Primary Car" and isn't uncommon on the streets of 
    Clerkenwell. It reminds me of something, but I don't know what. The Yardies
    have souped it up quite a bit htough, and it even has a rear wing.
    
    Name:Rover SD1
    Most Likely to be Found:South of the River
    Colours found in:Brown
    Speed:4/10 not good
    Acceleration:5/10 OK
    Handling:6/10 Quite good
    Durability:4/10 Can't handle big pile ups
    Looks:3/10 Awful
    This is just a horrible car, avoid it like the Plague, it looks ugly, and it
    drives slow. I would forgive it if it was something unique like a Van, or 
    a London Bus or Taxi, but it's just a dull 80's looking car
    
    Name:Rover 75
    Most Likely to be Found:Southwark (Bethnall Turf)or north of the river
    Colours found in:Red, green, blue, black
    Speed:7/10 Above average
    Acceleration:8/10 Quite good
    Handling:5/10 Fair
    Durability:6/10 Can Take a few hits
    Looks:7/10 Looks like a Jag to me!
    This is the Bethnall Green Mob's "Second Car" It's basically an average 
    gang car, but an above average road car.The Bethnall Mob use it to kidnap
    Alex Hammond.It looks quite a bit like a Jag
    
    Name:Saab Concept Car
    Most Likely to be Found:Two locations, the first one is on the bottom floor
    of the NCP Carpark in Chinatown, which is just south of Shaftsbury Avenue
    (umarked on map, not Shaftsbury Avenue, the chinatown street) or outside 
    Charlie's warehouse in "The Jolson Files"
    Colours found in:White
    Speed:8/10 fast!
    Acceleration:7/10 Again, quite good
    Handling:6/10 not too bad on corners either
    Durability:6/10 It will last a while
    Looks:8/10 Very Nice! It's got kind of a 1950's vision of transport in the
    year 2000 feel to it. The indicator/reverse/brake lights at the back are cool!
    Basically, this is a concept car from swedish manufacturer Saab, and therefore
    you will never see them on the streets. End of story!
    
    Name:Saab 900
    Most Likely to be Found:Everywhere
    Colours found in: A lot! Black, red, yellow well, maybe that's not a lot but
    that's only the ones I found
    Speed:7/10 quite fast really
    Acceleration:5/10 Average acceleration
    Handling:5/10 It's handling isn't all that bad
    Durability:4/10 It can take few hits 
    Looks:2/10 It was beaten with an ugly stick
    This is basically an old-ish car, probably from the late 1980's. It is 
    suprisingly fast for a car that looks and is as old as it is
    
    Name:Saab 9-3
    Most Likely to be Found:Upmarket Areas
    Colours found in:Dark Blue, Black
    Speed:7/10  fast 
    Acceleration:6/10 better off the mark than the Saab 900
    Handling:4/10 Doesn't handle very well
    Durability:5/10 OK
    Looks:4/10 Like a Brick
    This is basically a modern looking Saab 900, which looks better(but is till
    ugly) and accelerates better, that's all I can say about it really.
    
    Name:Tank
    Most Likely to be Found:Inside an area of black fence that stretches down 
    along Birdcage walk, just south of the Queen's house,(well, it's slightly
    bigger than your average house) Buckingham Palace.
    Colours found in:Green
    Speed:3/10 Not all that good
    Acceleration:3/10 *same*
    Handling:3/10 like a brick
    Durability:10/10 LIKE A TANK!!!!!(It goes to black smoke easily, but it 
    takes ages to catch on fire)
    Looks:6/10 OK, it doesn't have tank tracks, it just has tyres
    This is well, a tank! Pressing L3 fires it's weapon, which basically causes
    the same explosions thta oil barrels cause when they explode, a few feet away 
    from the Tank. Often, cars hit by the gun often veer to the right for no reason,
    so if you are attacking oncoming traffic, they will probably smash into you.
    It's great fun firing it at pedestrians, and watching as the explosion happens,
    half a second passes, then the pedestrian gets flung back on fire! This is the
    last Vice City reference in this section, this tank cannot run over vehicles
    like the Rhino in Vice City, because it doesn't have tank tracks. So don't 
    even try!
    
    Name:Taxi
    Most Likely to be Found:Everywhere!
    Colours found in:Black, Dark Green, Maroon
    Speed:5/10 OK
    Acceleration:3/10 Not that good really
    Handling:5/10 Fair
    Durability:7/10 Will take a hit or 5
    Looks:7/10 Like a London Cab!
    London Black Taxis are always good, but for some reason most of the ones on
    The Getaway seem to be Green. Unfortunately, there isn't a London Taxi
    Mode, but the Taxis are able to smash other cars out of the way.
    
    Name:Tow-Truck
    Most Likely to be Found:There is one parked on the side of the road on St.
    James Street
    Colours found in:White
    Speed:3/10 Not good
    Acceleration:3/10 Again, not good
    Handling:2/10 Poor 
    Durability:7/10 OK
    Looks:4/10 Reasonable
    There may be more than one of these, but I only know the location of one of
    them. They are often in front of big ramps, which can be used to sent your 
    car up into the air, and if you go slowly you can land on the tow-truck,
    which is kinda cool. The tow-truck itself isn't really any good.
    
    Name:Toyota Hi-Ace
    Most Likely to be Found:Industrial Areas
    Colours found in:Blueish-Grey
    Speed:3/10 not good
    Acceleration:2/10 poor
    Handling:2/10 Shameful
    Durability:5/10 OK
    Looks:1/10 Like a stretched out Hi-Jets! ugh!
    Basically, this is a Hi-Jets with an extra panel in the side, it's just an 
    awful looking van, which should be avoided
    
    Name:Toyota Townace
    Most Likely to be Found:Industrial Areas
    Colours found in:HORRIBLE colours! pale orange, pale green ugh!
    Speed:3/10 poor
    Acceleration:2/10 abysmal
    Handling:3/10  rubbish
    Durability:4/10 not good
    Looks:1/10 Like a Camper van version of the Hi-Jets
    Avoid this one too, I hate Toyota for both of the above vans, or rather the
    guy who designed them!
    
    Name:Toyota MR2
    Most Likely to be Found:everywhere north of the river
    Colours found in:Red, Yellow
    Speed:6/10 reasonably fast
    Acceleration:5/10 OK
    Handling:4/10 Reasonable
    Durability:5/10 Average
    Looks:4/10 OK, but slightly too "square-based"
    You are likely to find these wherever you go north of the river, and you 
    could find some south of it too. These are semi-fast cars, which have a 
    back wing for some reason
    
    Name:Toyota Corolla
    Most Likely to be Found:Everywhere
    Colours found in:Green, Red, A greyish-Bluish-Greenish colour
    Speed:5/10 Moderate
    Acceleration:5/10 OK
    Handling:5/10 average steering
    Durability:4/10 Doesn't take a whole lot to send it to the scrap heap
    Looks:6/10 Not too bad
    These are found everywhere, and there seems to be quite a few south of the
    river. These look like they're going to perform better than they do, so
    don't fall fo it!
    
    Name:Transit?
    Most Likely to be Found:everywhere
    Colours found in:Several Designs
    White and Plain(white van man!)
    Red with Royal Mail Designs
    Grey with BT Designs (filthy business only)
    Grey with Fed-Ex designs
    Yellow and Green with City Link designs
    Speed:4/10 OK
    Acceleration:5/10 Again, it's OK
    Handling:4/10 not too bad
    Durability:7/10 can take a pounding
    Looks:5/10 Like a Transit
    This looks exactly like a transit, but with no Ford Markings on them. Indeed,
    there is an Oval shape left blank at the front of the van. I think Ford 
    pulled out of the Getaway at one point(I heard the ordinary Police Cars were
    going to be Ford Fiestas) and as Team Soho couldn't find another similar van
    they decided to keep this and take off Ford insignia.
    
    Name:TVR Tuscan Speed 6 (Me thinks!)
    Most Likely to be Found:Mansion on Bayswater road, just follow the road
    along until you can go south, keep going and you will see what I can best
    describe as a "rounded" road, which has a blue-ish fence next to it. There
    s a gap in this fence, go through it, along the path until you get to a 
    mansion with two sports cars sitting outside. the one on the right is the
    TVR. The second is at the lock-up of Charlie's that Frank Carter raided on
    the mission "The Jolson Files"
    
    Another location, sent to me by Xx Kolchak xX, and as I am very lazy I copied
    and pasted the e-mail. Sue me.
    
    First, I'd like to thank you for the great vehicle
    guide. It's helped me very well, and I know it takes
    quite a while to write something like that up.
    
    Now, on to the business. I live in Oklahoma, so I have
    the American version of the game and no map (not to
    mention a bad habit of driving on the wrong side of
    the road.) I think I have found another location for
    the TVR. Start "A touch of class" and drive straight
    out on to the road that curves a little and decends a
    bit. Drive past the first intersection, and watch your
    right hand side. There will be a gas station. Drive in
    and turn right at the back wall. There is a large
    black sports car that I have been told is a TVR. I
    don't know whether it is there on the free roam or
    not, as I haven't beaten the game yet. I'm not sure if
    this location is mentioned on your guide, but It isn't
    on the TVR section. (as I said, someone told me it was
    the TVR, I'm still not sure.)
    
    I hope it helped, and if it didn't feel free to
    verbally abuse me in a reply
    
    I was tempted to do this, because verbally abusing people is always great fun, but
    as he was nice about the guide, I let him off.
    
    Colours found in:Dark Blue
    Speed:9/10 Oh yes!
    Acceleration:9/10 Vrrooom!
    Handling:6/10 Fairly good
    Durability:5/10 OK
    Looks:10/10 Stunning! just stunning!
    This is my favourite car and probably the best car in the game. It's no secret
    that Liam drives one and also that Charlie has one stashed at his garage at
    his house in mayfair. The only TVR in the game is stunning!
    
    Name:Vauxhall Astra Estate Van
    Most Likely to be Found:Hyde Park, NCP Carpark
    Colours found in:Blue, Red
    Speed:5/10 OK
    Acceleration:6/10 quite good
    Handling:5/10 OK
    Durability:6/10 reasonable
    Looks:5/10 Not too good
    My dad used to drive one of these, only instead of being a van, it had the 
    windows at the side of it rather than paint, making it a car. It's the
    kind of thing electricians and plumbers would drive, if you ask me
    
    Name:Vauxhall Vectra
    Most Likely to be Found:DC Carter's earlier missions
    Colours found in:Silver
    Speed:8/10 Carter Chose a good car!
    Acceleration:9/10 a very good car!
    Handling:5/10 reasonable
    Durability:6/10 good
    Looks:8/10 Very Slick!
    This is DC Carter's undercover Police car, it looks and drives good. It has
    a siren, which is activated by L3.
    
    
    *****************************************************************************
    
    4.0 Emergency Vehicles
    These are all vehicles used by the emergency services, and all have pretty
    sirens that can be activated with L3!
    And as I am doing it in the same way, I might as well include the
    little thing and example thing. All cars will be listed in alphabetical 
    order, and will be assessed under the following criteria (makes me sound 
    like a driving instructor or something)
    
    Note, this is all false! FALSE FALES FALSE! no, not the guide itself, this
    demo example, although the criteria will remain the same, got it?
    
    Also, I will include what emergency service uses them
    
    Name: eg Steamroller!
    Most likely to be found: eg In the River! 
    Emergency Service:Mountain Rescue
    Colours found in:eg Pink, Brown, Orange. (any I know of, I can't list them all if
    I don't know them all!)
    Speed:eg 6/10 it goes quite fast, doesn't it?
    Acceleration:eg 2/10 damn slow off the mark
    Handling:eg 1/10 Like a dead Whale
    Durablity:eg 10/10 It'll take a fair few hits
    Looks:eg 5/10 Like a Steamroller!
    The Steamroller is a car. Well no, it isn't. I wouldn't really use one to 
    escape in. It basically looks like a steamroller, and if you don't know what
    one of them is, then I feel sorry for you, really I do.
    
    And with no further wait, here they all are!
    
    Name:Ambulance
    Most Likely to be Found:Around the Hospital(usually in pairs) which is on
    Tottenham Court road, if memory serves me correct
    Emergency Service:Ambulance Service
    Colours found in:White, with ambulance insignia on it
    Speed:4/10 Not all that fast
    Acceleration:3/10 Again, it isn't exactly a Ferrari
    Handling:3/10 Not all that good
    Durability:7/10 It knows how to take a hit
    Looks:4/10 Ambulances are ugly, but I guess it's cool driving around in one.
    This is an Ambulance! they are driven only by paramedics. You can also 
    activate the siren with the L3. It's ironic because in one of Carter's 
    missions where you have to take Joe to the hospital, Carter says "I won't
    wait for the Ambulance" even though when you go down the road, there's loads
    all driving together.
    
    Name:Fire Engine
    Most Likely to be Found:On Disturbance in Soho, a bit down the street from the
    Republic.
    Emergency Service:Fire Brigade
    Colours found in:Red, with Fire Engine Insignia on it
    Speed:4/10 Won't get to every fire on time
    Acceleration:4/10 no wonder they're on strike!
    Handling:3/10 not all that good!
    Durability:9/10 It's a nice Behemoth in this department though!
    Looks:5/10 Fire Engines are kinda cool
    Basically, it's a vehicle in which firefighters clamber into to go out and
    put out fires. Unfortunately, there are none on the streets, so they must
    all be on strike, heh! (Firemen have been on strike in the UK recently in
    case you didn't know)It has a Siren though!
    
    Name:Police Peugeot 306 
    Most Likely to be Found:All over the City
    Emergency Service:Police Force
    Colours found in:White, with fluorescant yellow bands on the side, Police 
    markings.
    Speed:6/10 OK for a small car
    Acceleration:5/10 Fairly Average
    Handling:8/10 Very Nice Handling
    Durability:5/10 Can take a little bit more damage
    Looks:5/10 OK, it isn't an especially nice Police Car
    This is just the basic Partol Car, so don't expect Cops in this to be
    chasing you for very long unless you are in Free Roaming Mode, but even
    then you can lose them because they aren't in an especially fast car. L3
    activates it's siren.
    
    Name:Police Van
    Most Likely to be Found:In roadblocks
    Emergency Service:Police Force
    Colours found in:White, basic Police livery
    Speed:4/10 It's a van
    Acceleration:5/10 But it goes OK 
    Handling:4/10 Not too hot on corners
    Durability:8/10 It can take punishment though!
    Looks:6/10 It's cool driving in one of these!
    It's your basic Police Riot Van, used to take Officers to places where there
    are, well riots! In real life, they also have a cage at the back where 
    Prisoners go. L3 turns on it's siren.
    
    Name:Police Vauxhall Vectra
    Most Likely to be Found:When you've been misbehaving, which tends to happen
    all to frequently
    Emergency Service:Police Force
    Colours found in:White, with an Fluorescant Orange/Red Stripe down it
    Speed:7/10 Hey, the Cops need to keep up with you!
    Acceleration:9/10 Extremely quick to get to top speed
    Handling:5/10 Fairly good
    Durability:6/10 Knows how to take Punishment
    Looks:6/10 I guess they look kinda cool
    A good all-round car, and easily the best Police and indeed emergency 
    services vehicle in the game. Unfortunately, you can't see them for love or
    money in Freeroaming mode.L3 activates it's siren.
    
    Name:Prison Transport Van
    Most Likely to be Found:On the missions "Aiding and Abetting" and "Escort 
    Duty" 
    Emergency Service:Police Force
    Colours found in:Grey
    Speed:*estimate* 4/10
    Acceleration:*estimate* 4/10
    Handling:*estimate* 4/10
    Durability:*estimate* 8/10
    Looks:6/10 Kinda cool, it's the type of Van serial killers get put in
    Basically, I have been unable to capture one and steal it, as in both 
    missions the thing drives off like a bullet, and even if you smash it off
    the road it will find a way through. At the time, Jake Jolson is contained
    within the van.
    
    Name:Vauxhall Vectra
    Most Likely to be Found:DC Carter's earlier missions
    Emergency Service:Police
    Colours found in:Silver

    Vehicles that only appear in certain missions and no-where else are here.
    
    Again, I am using the same stuff so I will use the same intro.All cars will

    Handling:4/10 not too bad
    Durability:7/10 can take a pounding
    Looks:5/10 Like a Transit
    This looks exactly like a transit, but with no Ford Markings on them. Indeed,

    "The 10 Hidden Vehicles" are here, shame there's 12 of them really, I guess
    we'll never know which ones are supposed to be the 10 secret ones until 
    Team Soho tells us. I have my suspicions about some, I think it's most
    likely to be the Daihatsu Jets Pick-up and the MKII Roadster.
    
    Again, I am using the same stuff so I will use the same intro.All cars will
    be listed in alphabetical order, and will be assessed under the following

    And with no further wait, here they all are!
    
    
    Name:Daihatsu Hi-Jets Pick-up
    Most Likely to be Found:2 or 3 places in Hyde Park. One of them is at a depot
    of vans, another is behind a few trees and a smallish building on next to a
    path. I think I found a third location, but 
    a) I can't remember where it was
    b) it could have just been the second one
    Although Hyde Park is a maze, I know that I always stumble across them at some
    point or another.
    Colours found in:White, with Royal Parks insignia.
    Speed:4/10 Perhaps a bit faster than the Hi-jets van
    Acceleration:2/10 very slow starter though
    Handling:5/10 reasonable
    Durability:5/10 again, it isn't all that bad
    Looks:2/10 but only because it has grass/leaves in the back!
    This could be a rare vehicle, although I know that I have stumbled across
    them during missions. They can't be seen driving around, and are basically
    a Daihatsu Hi-Jets modified into a pick-up truck. it has grass/leaves in
    the back though! which is a good thing, maybe. At least that feature is 
    unique!
    
    Name:Golf Buggy/Cart (whatever you want to call it)
    Most Likely to be Found:It's in the northern Area of Hyde Park, near a 
    set of crossroads. Just follow the yellow path until it is crossed over
    by a grey one, take the grey path down till you get to a set of crossroads,
    and it's to the left, in front of you hidden behind a group of bushes.
    Colours found in:White, with insignia on the small door
    Speed:6/10 not too bad when it gets going
    Acceleration:4/10 it's a golf buggy, don't expect it to be a Ferrari
    Handling:4/10 It's small Tyres mean it has low grip
    Durability:3/10 Can't take all that much either
    Looks:4/10 Like A Golf Cart
    This is the only one of two times I intend to mention GTA Vice city in
    this section, so bear with me. It's exactly like a "Caddy" From that game, 
    except this one has a door. Basically, it's for transporting Golfers and
    there equipment around courses, not hardened criminals on the run from 
    the Police and an Army of gangs!
    
    Name:Go-Kart
    Most Likely to be Found:Mansion on Bayswater road, just follow the road
    along until you can go south, keep going and you will see what I can best
    describe as a "rounded" road, which has a blue-ish fence next to it. There
    s a gap in this fence, go through it, along the path until you get to a 
    mansion with two sports cars sitting outside. Look in the garage(do a 180
    from where you entered) and look in the corner.
    Colours found in:Um, I can't give it a colour really.
    Speed:7/10 Not Bad!
    Acceleration:7/10 Nice for a go-kart
    Handling:4/10 like the Golf Buggy It's small Tyres mean it has low grip,
    but this adds to the fun!
    Durability:3/10 don't expect to collide head on with a Double Decker and
    come out the better off of the two!
    Looks:7/10 It's a Go-Kart! very nice!
    It has an invisible door! spooky! This is a great, original idea, and I like
    it, especially it's crazy handling. It's not wholly an ideal getaway car,
    because It can't take many hits, but it could squeze through gaps in traffic
    easily!
    
    Name:Lotus Elise
    Most Likely to be Found:Mansion on Bayswater road, just follow the road
    along until you can go south, keep going and you will see what I can best
    describe as a "rounded" road, which has a blue-ish fence next to it. There
    s a gap in this fence, go through it, along the path until you get to a 
    mansion with two sports cars sitting outside. Look in the garage and you will
    see it. The second is at the lock-up of Charlie's that Frank Carter raided on
    the mission "The Jolson Files"
    Colours found in:White
    Speed:9/10 nnnniiii
    Acceleration:9/10 cccceeee!!!!
    Handling:6/10 not all that bad!
    Durability:5/10 can't take a lot of hits!
    Looks:9/10 Sweet! First thing:It has doors like the Delorean in Back to the
    Future, in that they open vertically, and Second Thing:Second mention of
    GTA Vice City out of three, it looks just like an Infernus
    This thing is FAST! it's a very nice car to cruise around in, because it
    looks so cool, and also it's a good getaway car too. It and the TVR seem
    to be Twins, they always follow each other around, except in one place, no
    wait, two places where the TVR is on it's own.
    
    Name:Lotus Espirit
    Most Likely to be Found:If you head along Marylebone Road, in the district of
    believe it or not, Marylebone. Head West along this road, and a little alley
    should be on your right, which is where a certain car is
    Colours found in:Silver
    Speed:8/10 Good
    Acceleration:8/10 All Lotuses have good acceleration!
    Handling:5/10 And Fairly Good Handling
    Durability:5/10 But can't take much damage!
    Looks:7/10 They always look good though
    This is another Hidden Lotus Car(One more still to come!) and it's basically
    a typical Lotus for all the points which I just summed up, a nice car if 
    you want to just cruise the streets of London.
    
    Name:Lotus 7 MKII Roadster 
    Most Likely to be Found:You start with it in Free Roaming Mode
    Colours found in:Purple
    Speed:8/10 Fast
    Acceleration:9/10 Fast 
    Handling:4/10 Nicht zu gut
    Durability:3/10 doesn't survive many hits
    Looks:8/10 Slick!
    This is called a "roadster" but I cannot see how! I think I can honestly
    say that other than on The Getaway, I have NEVER seen one on the roads! 
    It's more of a racing car, really.In GTA:London (not a reference to the
    modern version) it was called the "Locust 7" So I guess it could have
    been on the streets in 1969, but now it is 2003, so it's unlikely that there
    are any on the roads today.
    
    OK, The stupidity of moi has been pointed out again:
    
    The Lotus Seven you refer to as being out of date and not on the roads in 
    2002 in your guide iss lightly incorrect. The Lotus 7, has been around since 
    the 1950's, and was made by Lotus until the 70's. However, the car is still 
    made today by Caterham. There are loads of them on the roads, mostly in the 
    country and London. There are also 1000's of kitcars that people build that 
    look exactly like the real thing.( Makes include "Robin Hood" and "Super7").
     
    Have a look for yourself on http://www.caterham.co.uk/ or for replicas, 
    http://www.automotive-links.com/mak/lot/cat.htm
     
    I don't drive one myself! ...But I thought I'd update you!
     
    Cheers for the great guide
     
    Max
    
    Hmmm..... 'tis no longer 2002, hee hee hee! and then again, I typed 2003 in that
    bit. Sorry, I am in a vindictive mood today >:> but I doubt Max will care about
    what I said, it's not like it's offensive...
    
    Name:Nissan Skyline GTR
    Most Likely to be Found:Mansion on Bayswater road, just follow the road
    along until you can go south, keep going and you will see what I can best
    describe as a "rounded" road, which has a blue-ish fence next to it. There
    s a gap in this fence, go through it, along the path until you get to a 
    mansion with two sports cars sitting outside. The white one on the left is
    the Skyline.
    Colours found in:White
    Speed:7/10 Fairly Fast
    Acceleration:8/10 Quick off the mark
    Handling:5/10 OK, there are worse than it
    Durability:5/10 Again, there are less durable cars
    Looks:6/10 not too bad!
    The Skyline is a fairly fast car, and is fun to race around London in. 
    It also makes a good getaway Vehicle.
    
    Name:Peugeot 306 "Boy Racer"
    Most Likely to be Found:If you go to Horseferry Road(J14) on the south side
    of this road is an alley leading to a small underground car park with some
    burnt out cars in it. The boy racer is hidden behind a wall and is tucked
    into a corner
    Colours found in:Yellow
    Speed:7/10 It's been Souped up!
    Acceleration:7/10 So what do you expect?
    Handling:8/10 Good handling 
    Durability:4/10 Shame it can't take much damage
    Looks:7/10 So Cool! Well, it's a good imitation of a Boy Racer car, what with
    the Spoiler and the Speakers in the back and everything!
    This is probably the best of the three Peugeot 306's, but I wouldn't ever
    consider showing off to your mates in a REAL boy racer car, because everyone
    laughs at boy racers! At least I do. This isn't a pure Boy Racer car, it needs
    to be an older model of car
    
    Name:Saab Concept Car
    Most Likely to be Found:Two locations, the first one is on the bottom floor
    of the NCP Carpark in Chinatown, which is just south of Shaftsbury Avenue
    (umarked on map, not Shaftsbury Avenue, the chinatown street) or outside 
    Charlie's warehouse in "The Jolson Files"
    Colours found in:White
    Speed:8/10 fast!
    Acceleration:7/10 Again, quite good
    Handling:6/10 not too bad on corners either
    Durability:6/10 It will last a while
    Looks:8/10 Very Nice! It's got kind of a 1950's vision of transport in the
    year 2000 feel to it. The indicator/reverse/brake lights at the back are cool!
    Basically, this is a concept car from swedish manufacturer Saab, and therefore
    you will never see them on the streets. End of story
    
    Name:Tank
    Most Likely to be Found:Inside an area of black fence that stretches down 
    along Birdcage walk, just south of the Queen's house,(well, it's slightly
    bigger than your average house) Buckingham Palace.
    Colours found in:Green
    Speed:3/10 Not all that good
    Acceleration:3/10 *same*
    Handling:3/10 like a brick
    Durability:10/10 LIKE A TANK!!!!!(It goes to black smoke easily, but it 
    takes ages to catch on fire)
    Looks:6/10 OK, it doesn't have tank tracks, it just has tyres
    This is well, a tank! Pressing L3 fires it's weapon, which basically causes
    the same explosions thta oil barrels cause when they explode, a few feet away 
    from the Tank. Often, cars hit by the gun often veer to the right for no reason,
    so if you are attacking oncoming traffic, they will probably smash into you.
    It's great fun firing it at pedestrians, and watching as the explosion happens,
    half a second passes, then the pedestrian gets flung back on fire! This is the
    last Vice City reference in this section, this tank cannot run over vehicles
    like the Rhino in Vice City, because it doesn't have tank tracks. So don't 
    even try!
    
    Name:Tow-Truck
    Most Likely to be Found:There is one parked on the side of the road on St.
    James Street
    Colours found in:White
    Speed:3/10 Not good
    Acceleration:3/10 Again, not good
    Handling:2/10 Poor 
    Durability:7/10 OK
    Looks:4/10 Reasonable
    There may be more than one of these, but I only know the location of one of
    them. They are often in front of big ramps, which can be used to sent your 
    car up into the air, and if you go slowly you can land on the tow-truck,
    which is kinda cool. The tow-truck itself isn't really any good.
    
    Name:TVR Tuscan Speed 6 (Me thinks!)
    Most Likely to be Found:Mansion on Bayswater road, just follow the road
    along until you can go south, keep going and you will see what I can best
    describe as a "rounded" road, which has a blue-ish fence next to it. There
    s a gap in this fence, go through it, along the path until you get to a 
    mansion with two sports cars sitting outside. the one on the right is the
    TVR. The second is at the lock-up of Charlie's that Frank Carter raided on
    the mission "The Jolson Files"
    Colours found in:Dark Blue
    Speed:9/10 Oh yes!
    Acceleration:9/10 Vrrooom!
    Handling:6/10 Fairly good
    Durability:5/10 OK
    Looks:10/10 Stunning! just stunning!
    This is my favourite car and probably the best car in the game. It's no secret
    that Liam drives one and also that Charlie has one stashed at his garage at
    his house in mayfair. The only TVR in the game is stunning!

    7.0 Gang Vehicles
    Vehicles that are driven by gangsters are all listed here
    
    Again, I am using the same stuff so I will use the same intro.All cars will
    be listed in alphabetical order, and will be assessed under the following
    criteria (makes me sound like a driving instructor or something)
    
    Note, this is all false! FALSE FALES FALSE! no, not the guide itself, this
    demo example, although the criteria will remain the same, got it?
    
    Name: eg Steamroller!
    Most likely to be found: eg In the River! 
    Colours found in:eg Pink, Brown, Orange. (any I know of, I can't list them all if
    I don't know them all!)
    Speed:eg 6/10 it goes quite fast, doesn't it?
    Acceleration:eg 2/10 damn slow off the mark
    Handling:eg 1/10 Like a dead Whale
    Durablity:eg 10/10 It'll take a fair few hits
    Looks:eg 5/10 Like a Steamroller!
    The Steamroller is a car. Well no, it isn't. I wouldn't really use one to 
    escape in. It basically looks like a steamroller, and if you don't know what
    one of them is, then I feel sorry for you, really I do.
    
    And with no further wait, here they all are!
    
    
    Bethnall Green Mob
    
    Name:Lexus IS430 
    Most Likely to be Found:Bethnall Green Mob Turf, ie South of the River
    Colours found in:Silver
    Speed:8/10 It has to be fast
    Acceleration:8/10 because it's a gang car
    Handling:4/10 a bit ropey
    Durability:7/10 It takes a bit of punishment though
    Looks:6/10 Better than the IS200
    This is the Bethnall Green Mobs "Primary Car" and is suprisingly able
    to take a fair amount of punishment before giving in.
    
    Name:Rover 75
    Most Likely to be Found:Southwark (Bethnall Turf)
    Colours found in:Red
    Speed:7/10 Above average
    Acceleration:8/10 Quite good
    Handling:5/10 Fair
    Durability:6/10 Can Take a few hits
    Looks:7/10 Looks like a Jag to me!
    This is the Bethnall Green Mob's "Second Car" It's basically an average 
    gang car, but an above average road car.The Bethnall Mob use it to kidnap
    Alex Hammond.
    
    Collins Gang
    
    Name:Lexus SC430 
    Most Likely to be Found:Collins Gang Turf, ie Soho
    Colours found in:Dark Blue, White
    Speed:7/10 Quite 
    Acceleration:8/10 Nippy
    Handling:6/10 It can handle corners OK
    Durability:5/10 Not too durable
    Looks:8/10 Quite nice!
    This is the Collins gang car, and to make up for the fact that they
    only have one car, it has two colours instead. A nice car on which you
    can rely on to make an escape
    
    14k Triads
    
    Name:Honda Civic
    Most Likely to be Found:Triad Turf, which is very hard to pinpoint! I think
    there is one in the underground NCP
    Colours found in:Green, Purple(If the ones outside the crack house are Accords
    which I always thought they were, I didn't get a close look really)
    Speed:8/10 As you'd expect for
    Acceleration:7/10 a Triad car
    Handling:4/10 Doesn't take corners well
    Durability:6/10 Not all that bad really
    Looks:6/10 Not too bad!
    It's the Triads "second choice" car, and is reasonably fast, which isn't
    good when they are pursuing you and hunting you down! Still, it's Honda's
    best car in the game.
    
    Name:Nissan Skyline GTR
    Most Likely to be Found:Piccadily Circus, Triad Turf
    Colours found in:Black
    Speed:7/10 Fairly Fast
    Acceleration:8/10 Quick off the mark
    Handling:5/10 OK, there are worse than it
    Durability:5/10 Again, there are less durable cars
    Looks:6/10 not too bad!
    This is the Triads "primary car" and they use it a lot. They can often be seen
    around Piccadilly Circus, for some unknown reason.
    
    
    Yardies
    
    Name:Brabus S-Class
    Most Likely to be Found:Yardie Turf, ie Clerkerwell
    Colours found in:Purple
    Speed:8/10 vrroom!
    Acceleration:7/10 again, it's fast!
    Handling:5/10 nothing wrong with the handling
    Durability:4/10 Slamming it into things isn't the best of ideas
    Looks:7/10 nice!
    This is a car used exclusively by the Yardies(In that I haven't seen anyone
    else using them). Good to cruise around in, but it isn't fun when they are
    chasing you as they are lightning quick.It's a modified Mercedes SL and was 
    a very clever thing for Team Soho to do by slipping this one in under the 
    manufacturer, Brabus.It's the Yardie's "Second Choice" car
    
    Name:Rover SD1 Yardie edition
    Most Likely to be Found:Clerkenwell - Yardie Turf
    Colours found in:Purple, with yellow wheels
    Speed:7/10 Fast again
    Acceleration:8/10 Average gang car really
    Handling:5/10 OK handling
    Durability:6/10 OK Durability
    Looks:7/10 It has a unqiue charm I guess
    This is the Yardies "Primary Car" and isn't uncommon on the streets of 
    Clerkenwell. It reminds me of something, but I don't know what. The Yardies
    have souped it up quite a bit htough, and it even has a rear wing.

    me
    Colours found in:Red
    Speed:*Unknown* I'd estimate 3/10
    Acceleration:*Unknown* I'd estimate 3/10
    Handling:*Unknown* I'd estimate 2/10
    Durability:*Unknown* I'd estimate 7/10
    Looks:4/10 I do know this one! It looks ugly
    For some reason known only to Team Soho, you can't actually get into the
    single-decker buses. Where I live, these are white, but in London presumably
    they are red.
    
    OK, E-mail from Berriman
    You say in tour car guide you can't get into the single decker red buses.  
    You can get in them, just go round to the drivers side and press 
    circle.
    
    This puzzled me somewhat, because I knew I couldn't get into buses. So,
    I e-mailed Berriman asking what version he had:
    
    Mine is the one released after the BT van was taken off.  They must have
    added the option of being able to get in the single decker bus when they
    re-released it!  
    
    So, there you have it, I would assume that:
    
    - If you have the unedited UK/European version(such as myself) where there 
      is a BT Van on mission 7, you cannot get into single-deckers
    
    - If you have If you have the edited UK/European version(such as Berriman) 
      where there is NOT a BT Van on mission 7, you can get into single-deckers
    
    - If you have the  US/North American version(such as well, Americans!) where there 
      you can get into single-deckers(And I ask for some Americans to check that out 
      for me please!)
    
    Thanks to Mishaal Jugessur for telling me about the next vehicle
    
    Name:Fork Lift Truck
    Most Likely to be Found:Outside the Warehouse on the first mission, aboard the 
    Sol Vita
    Colours found in:White
    Speed:2/10
    Acceleration:3/10
    Handling:3/10
    Durability:1/10(It has an explosive barrel on the back!!!!!!!!)
    Looks:2/10 Ugly
    Not much you can do with these really...
    
    Sol Vita
    This isn't really a vehicle that you can drive in, but still, it's a vehicle
    and this is a vehicle guide! All I can say without giving away too many spoilers
    is that it is a big tanker, called the "Sol Vita". That's all you're getting 
    out of me!

    9.0 Vehicle-Related Glitches
    
    - Sometimes, when a car is shunted forwards when someone is getting out,
    they will get out in mid-air in the same place!
    
    - I was once driving along Kensington Road, and actually drove through the
    end of the road in the MK II Roadster, and was actually driving on sky! All
    the buildings then became unsolid
    
    - Sometimes, Cars disappear or appear out of thin air
    
    - Car numberplates are wrong - quite often newer cars get old number plates
    and older cars get new numberplates
    
    - On Mark's second mission, if you don't get in the Red Rover at the end of 
    it(I got into the red Fiat Punto at the Police road block) then the cutscene
    still show Mark in the red Rover!
    
    From:devon coile
    
    - I was reading your vehicle guide for the getaway and you said to e mail 
    you glitches.  I was wondering if you ever saw the glitch where the cops 
    cars go under ground and stick half way out the ground and shit like that?
    
    From:Lance (Hmmm... Lance Vance? nah! this was supposed to be a VC free 
    zone, so DOH!)
    
    - Love the guide, well done.  I'm just up to the BT guy at the cop shop.
    Anyway, I nicked a Toyota MR2 at the beginning and found when I went to the 
    yard and drove at high speed the car went through the doorway.  I've not
    completely read your guide yet but did you know this?

    11.0 Frequently asked questions
    
    Q:Why isn't there any [insert car manufacturer here] cars in the game?
    A:Because there isn't. The mean people at that company wouldn't let Team 
    Soho use their Vehicles in the Getaway. 
    
    Q:Why isn't there any [insert car manufacturer who is in the game here] [insert
    car model that isn't in the game here] in the game?
    A:Why would I know? Ask Team Soho
    
    Q:Why is there a Jag in the Demo, but not in the full game?
    A:Because Presumably, Jag pulled out at the last second
    
    Q:Are there any Bikes/Helicopters/Planes/Boats in the game?
    A:No, this isn't Vice City. There is one boat, not that you can actually drive
    it, it's an interior location
    
    Q:Where can I find [insert car here]? 
    A:Look in the relevant vehicles section
    
    Q:Can I put cars in garages?
    A:Again, this isn't Vice City
    
    Q:I've seen other cars do drive-bys, so why can't I?
    A:Well you can! well, not you personally, and not Mark Hammond or Frank Carter
    for that matter. If you have a passenger on your car, or to be specific, 
    Eyebrows or Yasmin, they will stick their gun out the window and shoot the
    hell out of pursuing Police or Gnag members.
    
    Q:Can I flip my car?
    A:Stop asking me GTA Related questions! Yes, but you'd be very lucky to do 
    so, I've tried a few times and my car just flipped itself back over instantly
    
    Q:You said there is a BT Van on mission 7, but there isn't one!
    A:That's not a question. Anyway, it's because BT feared that if a game 
    featured a BT Man getting killed(which you don't have to actually do) it 
    would spark off angry people trying to assassinate BT people. This is just
    a guess, but the amount of BT repairmen who have been shot since The Getaway
    came out is 0. 
    
    Q:Is there a Vigilante Mode/Taxi Mode/Firefighter Mode/Paramedic Mode etc?
    A:No. This isn't Vice City. There was going to be a Taxi Mode, but it didn't
    make it into the Getaway.
    
    Q:Can you shoot people through windscreens like on Vice City?
    A:Yes.But unless you have a good weapon and/or you blocked off the doors, 
    the person inside is likely to just get out before you can put the final 
    bullet into their heads
