Trivia

  • In Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas for PC, there is a data file titled carcols.dat which names some vehicle brands: one known brand (Maibatsu), one later-known brand (Shitsu, not Shitzu) and two unknown brands (Nioka and Kunst). So far, no one can tell which vehicles these brands have produced in the game.
  • Jugular, Kraken and Willard manufacture vehicles named after themselves.
  • Because of the absence of their vehicles, Steel Horse, Liberty Chop Shop, and Classique are the only vehicle brands in the HD Universe that have not reappeared in GTA V to date. However, the Stallion is featured as a Declasse vehicle while still possessing Classique badging, and the Hexer is seen branded as Steel Horse on manuals and posters.
  • The beta Blista Compact seen in a screenshot of Grand Theft Auto: Vice City possesses a manufacturer badge identical to Chrysler's Pentastar badge which was used on some Chrysler and Dodge models in the 1980s to mid 1990s.
  • In Grand Theft Auto IV, the Super GT featured "Asstone" badges in the beta as seen in a television program ingame. This brand appears to have been based on Aston Martin, but it went unused in the final game and was replaced with Dewbauchee as the ingame parody of Aston Martin, as the Super GT is made by Dewbauchee in the final game.
  • In Grand Theft Auto V, there are audio files for an unused manufacturer by the name "Skiver". It is unknown why this manufacturer went unused and the only remaining evidence for its existance are the audio files for the police scanner. Its name comes from "Skive" meaning to be absent from work or school without permission, which might suggest Skiver would have been a manufacturer of work or construction vehicles, similar to HVY or Brute.
