"This I gotta try."
Franklin Clinton upon entering the Space Docker for the first time.

The BF Space Docker is a special vehicle featured in Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online.

Design

Grand Theft Auto V

The Space Docker is a highly modified variant of the Dune Buggy which, while sharing the same tube body frame from the standard version, it has many crudely-made body panels attached to it.

The front of the vehicle features two circular headlamps emitting a green light and a pointy piece with three disks on the centre, while the upper area is covered by a large wooden piece. On the sides, various wooden planks can be seen strapped to the body, while two small wings can be seen behind the front wheels, each one supported by a cable and three hooks. The cabin area also features wooden pieces around the pillars and the roof. The rear area is covered by more wooden planks and a roof sheet over the engine bay, where it contains several electrical devices. The most outstanding feature of the vehicle are the two trashcans positioned on either side and supported by wooden planks, intended to emulate jet engines, as well as upper wooden pieces with rods mounted on them, appearing to be upper fins with large antenna. The underside area is identical to the Dune Buggy, with the exception of a trashcan lid mounted on the rear.

The cabin compartment features the same components as the Dune Buggy, being the corresponding set of pedals, a steering wheel with a visible steering column reaching the steering arms, the gear stick connected to the engine and the main seats. Similar to the Dune Buggy, the Space Docker is also fitted with a CB radio, and occasional trucker chatter can be heard regardless of whether the main radio is turned on or off (it only plays if playing as Trevor and in Blaine County).

The Space Docker is only seen with a light grey/red scheme with several red markings on it (possibly in accordance to the alien/space theme), as well as long coils of glowing blue EL wire wrapped around the vehicle's body, which light up at night. The vehicle uses unique wheel caps with red markings on them, together with standard-treaded tyres.

Performance

Grand Theft Auto V

Being similar in construction and design to the Dune Buggy, the Space Docker performs well off-road, but it has slightly lower acceleration than the Dune Buggy. Its back end is prone to fishtailing, especially at high speeds, possibly due to its low performance tyres and large weight (2,000 kilograms, 200 kg more than the base model). The Space Docker has a unique ability, in which it is capable of gliding for short distances if driven off a jump or a ledge. It is presumably powered by the two small jet turbines that generate thrust, but the vehicle's anti-gravitational abilities are never explained.

The Space Docker is not indestructible, as the front end of the vehicle deforms just as badly, if not worse, than the original Dune Buggy. The vehicle, like the Dune Buggy and the Injection, is powered by a single-cam Flat-4 engine, coupled to a 5-speed gearbox in a rear engine, rear wheel drive layout. The Space Docker actually sounds like a Dune Buggy when heard carefully, the "spaceship" engine sound is actually made by a sound device inside the vehicle.

Locations

Grand Theft Auto V

  • After collecting all Spaceship Parts, Franklin will have to go back to Omega to complete the mission The Final Frontier. After this, the player is able to get the Space Docker at Omega's garage. It won't appear in his garage again, however, it will be available as a "special vehicle" at each protagonist's garage.
  • The vehicle can be given to Trevor or Michael to keep by driving it to their current location as Franklin. Once there, leave the vehicle and walk away, then quickly switch to the respective character and enter it. It can then be stored in their garages.

Trivia

General

  • The name Space Docker is a quite obvious reference to the sexual act known as "space docking".
  • The default radio station of the Space Docker is Blue Ark.

Grand Theft Auto V

  • The vehicle has six different horns, all of which are based on old science-fiction sound effects.
  • Before the Last Team Standing Update, the Space Docker could be modified at Los Santos Customs, but the only modification that could be made to the vehicle was bulletproof tires. Despite the fact that the wheel rims could not be changed, the rim color option was still available, although cannot be chosen. After the update, the modifications have been removed and the vehicle can be only repaired at Los Santos Customs.
  • When viewed from the side, the Space Docker's color scheme and attachments resemble an X-wing from the Star Wars franchise.
