Grand Theft Auto 5 Guide: Vehicle Location Guide

grand theft auto 5
One of the most fun things to do in Grand Theft Auto V is to run around in the environment, find cool stuff to drive, and then cause mayhem. This Vehicle Location Guide for GTA V will go over different cars, planes, trains and a ton of other cool stuff to mess around in the world. The world in GTA V has evolved from games in the past so the exact vehicle might not be present at that moment. Check back again soon and eventually the car/vehicle you are looking for will show up. If you find any other vehicles or have any questions, make sure to hit us up in the comments. If you are looking for more help in GTA V, you can always hit up our GTA V Guide Collection that has different ways to rack up quick money, heists and more tips and tricks.

Where to Find Rare Sports Cars

GTA-V-Vehicle-Location
A good amount of rare sports cars in GTA V can be found in a particular shopping area. A section in the Rockford Hills has a ton of high end shopping, a barber shop, Ponsonbys cloth shoping, ad a Los Santos Customs spray shop. This shopping area is just a couple of blocks south of Michael’s house. Every once-in-a-while there will even be an “Adder” which is one of the rare cars that you usually have to purchase for $1,000,000. Drive, or walk around in the middle of the section on the map below and you are bound to find something fast quickly.

Where to Find Military Vehicles

So you want to drive a tank? Well tanks won’t be quite as easy to steal as jimmying open a car. If you are really good, and sneaky, you can get a bunch of different military vehicles like tanks and helicopters in GTA V out of Fort Zancudo. Head to the north side of the map and grab some kind of Fast car. I found it best to enter from the North East entrance of the base as there seems to be less guards and other things to stop you from getting in. Once you do get out of your car and steal something, you will have an immediate level 4 threat level. So make sure to move quick!

Where to Find Planes/Jets/Helicopters

There is actually a bunch of different plane, jet and helicopter locations in GTA V. Some of them can be accessed by buying up property while others can be stolen pretty easily. In the southern most tip of the map is an airport. If you walk up the stairs to go to the flight school you can actually drop down to a relatively clear area of the airport. From there you can steal pretty much any kind of flying thing possible or grab some stair cars for fun. You will get a threat level entering the area, but flying away pretty much gets rid of any stars you may pick up.

If you want a free helicopter, you can find one just South East of the strip club (smallest circle on the map below). On the block circled there will be a way to climb the building. Once you get to the top there will be a couple of helicopters that you can choose from to add to your collection.

There are a couple of airports in the north. There is a small airport hanger in the north that Trevor can by for a small biplane. You can use this biplane to do missions or just to generally mess around. There is a jet in the military facility highlighted in the above section on military vehicles that can be grabbed. Finally there is also a big landing strip in the north, just south of Trevor’s hanger, that you can take any of your stolen planes to for safe keeping.

I hope that this guide helped you find the vehicle of your dreams. Did you find a rare vehicle or something else that we don’t have listed here?

    What about muscle cars? I am looking for the 69 camaro clone and the cuda clone…

    • CaptainCamper

      Is the Camaro clone the Gauntlet? The one with the long stripe down the middle?

      • MatteAdder

        The Gauntlet is a mix between the Challenger and Camaro.

      • Guy LeDouche

        I found it…and not in any specific location. It’s strange…it seems like at any given time you only see 3 – 4 types of sedans through out the entire map. Then suddenly…there were 69 Camaros everywhere. Now I am looking for the Chevelle.

        The vehicle spawning system in the game seriously needs work.

        • RyanHeroing

          I’ll take a look around the map and see if I can’t find a spot that spawns them more regularly :).

          • Guy LeDouche

            Thanks bud. I seem to spend more time looking for classic cars to collect than playing the actual game.

          • CaptainCamper

            I recall spotting a car during a mission, and I don’t think I’ve seen it since. Sadly I can’t provide exact details.

            You’re asked to get a Tow Truck, I believe it’s for one of the Heists. There’s a guy working on the car next to it. I remember it being a Sports Classic and that term only seems to be used for the rarer vehicles. Worth a look if you haven’t already completed the mission

          • Connor O
