The FBI Car (written as Fbi Car in-game) is a law enforcement car driven by FBI agents in Grand Theft Auto III and Grand Theft Auto Advance. The vehicle was meant to appear in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, but was removed from the game's final version.


Grand Theft Auto III

In Grand Theft Auto III, the FBI Car's body is identical to the civilian Kuruma, but is painted exclusively in black and has tinted windows and a dashboard-mounted blue light and siren. There is a slightly different variant of the FBI Car present at roadblocks, with its body color is in a lighter shade (most likely gray) than the FBI Car used in pursuits. In the Xbox and mobile version of GTA III, the FBI Car features an air intake on the hood, most likely hinting that the superior performance comes from a supercharged engine. Each vehicle carries four agents in contrast to the Police car, which only carries two officers. There are also FBI car roadblocks, replacing the Enforcer in that capacity.

Like any law enforcement vehicle, the player may activate the Vigilante side-mission while in an FBI Car.

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

In Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, the FBI Car was meant to appear. It was based on a 1981-1990 Chevrolet Caprice, with the sides and back reminiscent of a 1980-1989 Dodge Diplomat. It is possible that the white paint job was an early idea for the vehicle's color. In the final version, the car's model appears as the Police car used by the LVPD.

The FBI Car's model exists, but it is inside the cutscene.img file instead of the gta3.img file, which is evidence that it was only going to be used in a cutscene and would never be an actual vehicle. The texture for the car also exists, although it is of very low quality.

Grand Theft Auto Advance

The FBI Car in Grand Theft Auto Advance is distinguished by its black body color, but features two red strobe lights mounted in the front and back of the interior, and is distinct in design from both the Police Car and the Taxi.

Grand Theft Auto III

In Grand Theft Auto III, the FBI Car is considerably faster than the standard Kuruma, but has inferior handling due to a slightly higher ground clearance which, far from an improvement, only serves to make the vehicle less stable. This raised ground clearance makes the FBI car more prone to rollovers, but makes the vehicle more suitable of off-road driving. Compared to the Police car, the FBI car is faster but has less stability and durability.
