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, some pedestrians may be overheard saying What? I can't afford a Renault!, referencing the real-life French auto manufacturer. No cars based on Renault models ever appear in the series otherwise.
