This is a list of Special Vehicles in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City. Special vehicles are a type of vehicle that has unique qualities in contrast to standard ones. Such of these are unique/permanent colors and proofing against bullets, explosions, fire, or collisions.

Unique trait Code Description
All-proof AP The vehicles receives no damage from anything. (BP/FP/EP/DP/MP)
Bullet-proof BP The vehicle receives no damage from direct hits from bullets.
Fire-proof FP The vehicle receives no damage from any flames or fires except when the vehicle is already burning from other forms of damage.
Explosion-proof EP The vehicle receives no damage from any explosions inflicted upon the vehicle.
Damage-proof DP The vehicle receives no damage from collisions or any form of physical damage.
Tip-proof TP The vehicle will not go in flames when it's tipped over. This property is available in any 3D-era GTA, but can only be saved in a garage in GTA Liberty City Stories and GTA Vice City Stories.
Permanent Color PC The vehicle's paint job cannot be changed in a spray shop when it could otherwise. This property is lost once the vehicle is stored in a garage.
Heavy H The vehicle's mass is greater than it should normally, meaning that the vehicle will lose less momentum when colliding into dynamic objects. The downside to this is that collisions will damage the vehicle more than it would normally and it reflects the same amount of your hit.
Unique Handling UH The vehicle's handling is altered to let the player be able to cut corners and turn more quickly than normal.
Pop-Proof PP The vehicle's tires cannot be popped by any means. This property is lost once the vehicle is stored in a garage.
Water-Proof WP The vehicle will not sink in the water where it will just blast through, falling into Blue Hell. This property is lost once the vehicle is stored in a garage.
Double Damage DD The vehicle will take two times more damage than ordinary vehicle.
Rare R The model of the vehicle appears only a few times during missions in the game.
Unobtainable U Cannot be obtained legitimately.
Destroying a proofed vehicle

Proofed vehicles are not indestructible. There are many of ways to wreck a BP/FP/EP/DP vehicle, including:

  • Flipping the car up-side down. (Won't work on tip-proof vehicles).
  • Getting hit by a tank.
  • Sinking the car in the water. (Won't work on water-proof vehicles.)
  • Using the Blow-up all cars cheat.
  • Getting in the vehicle while the player is on fire.
  • Using a car bomb to detonate the vehicle.

Any vehicle Black color

(On the PC version save a replay above a rampage and load the replay while in any sub-mission vehicle and spam the button that triggers the sub-mission. If done right, you shoould be able to do everything that you can not normally do while on a rampage. Start The Party and after picking up the Soiree Outfit head back to Ken's office and wait for the rampage to end so you can start The Party again. Head to the yacht with the vehicle you want to make black in the pink marker and after the cutscene kill Mercedes. Now go get the Soiree suit again and head to the marina but this time go to the marker on foot. After the cutscene, the vehicle will be black.)
