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.

*If you want to E-mail me any:
- Glitches
- Fun things to do
- Any extra Vehicles I may have missed
- 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)

1.1 Version History

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...

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
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.

5.0 "One-off" Vehicles
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
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? 

One more thing, a "Mission appeared in criteria" will  appear instead of
"most likely to be found"

Name: eg Steamroller!
Mission Appeared in:eg Land of Hope and Glory 
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:BT Transit?
Mission Appeared in:Filtyh Business
Colours found in:Grey with BT 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.Basically just a BT 
repair van.

Name:Vauxhall Vectra
Missions appeared in:DC Carter's earlier missions
Colours found in:Silver
Speed:8/10 Carter Chose a good car!
Acceleration:9/10 a very good car!

*****************************************************************************

6.0 Hidden Vehicles
"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
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: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.

*****************************************************************************

8.0 Other Vehicles

This is for unusual Vehicles, like the  the Sol Vita,
the Bus and the fork lift

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

Name: eg Steamroller!

Colours found in:eg Pink, Brown, Orange. (any I know of, I can't list them all if

Speed:eg 6/10 it goes quite fast, doesn't it?

And with no further wait, here they all are!


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, 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?
Cheers
Lance

10.0 Fun Things to do(In Vehicles, obviously)

- Trying to flip your car! 
Two good places are the stairs at St Pancras Station and the Ramp on 
St. James Road!

- As Carter(Hammond would get busted) Park two cars next to a cop cars doors
then shoot the cops inside!

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

Q:Can I take Hostages into Cars?
A:Try it(no)

Q:Can DC Carter steal cars seeing as he is the Police?
A:Yes, and that is his excuse too

Q:Is there one of those Car Lists like Sunshine Autos or on GTA3
A:No No NO! This isn't Vice City!!!!

Q:Why is my car on fire?
A:Well, why don't you get a car in real life, and start smashing it into 
stuff then come back and ask me

Q:Why is the handling on cars so crap?
A:It's called realism, Mr. Vercetti.

Q:What is that yellow light that keeps flashing?
A:Indicator lights, follow where they tell you to go, and then see what 
happens.

Q:Are there any Unique Jumps?
A:This isn't Vice City, chances are if you can do something extreme in 
Vice City, you probably can't do it on The Getaway.

Q:Why do ordinary patrol car cops have guns?
A:Because it would be too easy otherwise

Q:How do I complete [mission]?
A:This is a vehicle guide mate, not a mission guide. If you e-mailed me 
I could probably help you with it, seeing as I have completed the game.
