Grand Theft Auto Online lets players take a joyride through Los Santos with well over 300 different vehicles that range from monster trucks to tricked-out supercars. The variety of automobiles found in GTA Online is a motorhead’s dream, but accruing enough money to purchase a snazzy ride can take a while for anyone new to GTA 5‘s multiplayer mode. Luckily, Rockstar has hidden plenty of free cars across GTA Online‘s map that gamers can claim.
Sure, players can steal all of the best GTAO vehicles they come across on the streets of Los Santos, but a majority of those don’t have anything special that sets them apart. On the other hand, secret cars are unique vehicles that users can earn by stumbling across them or completing a challenge to unlock them. Many of these are one-of-a-kind, so GTA Online players will want to track them down to expand their car collection further.
Remember that the only way to ensure that these secret cars can’t get stolen or suffer irreparable damage is to insure them at Los Santos Customs. Most of the following vehicles take a substantial amount of effort or luck to find, so insuring them is a must if players want to roam around the wild streets of Los Santos. Here are all of the hidden cars that can be found in GTA Online.
GTA Online Secret Cars: Nagasaki Blazer
The Nagasaki Blazer is a unique ATV in GTA Online, and it’s surprisingly simple to acquire. Gamers can either shell out $8,000 on the SSASuperAutos.com store on the cellphone or hunt for it in the Sandy Shores neighborhood (home to other GTA Online hidden locations) found on the Northeastern side of the map, directly below the Alamo Sea.
GTA Online Secret Cars: Rusted Tractor
The Rusted Tractor looks so decrepit that it might seem like it can’t be driven, but the corroded jalopy is completely functional. GTA Online players will find this close to the El Gordo Lighthouse, directly east of Grapeseed. It will be parked in a bush in front of the country home near the lighthouse. The vehicle is on a spawn timer, so gamers will need to wait for it to reappear if someone else already drove off with it earlier. Its looks don’t lie; it won’t be going much faster than a bicycle.
GTA Online Secret Cars: Modded SandKing XL
This off-road monster can either be purchased or can be found in the parking lot of Larry’s RV Sales, which is found to the West of the Bolingbroke Penitentiary just South of Sandy Shores. There’s a trick to get the modded version of the truck to spawn. Players need to drive into Larry’s parking lot in a regular SandKing XL ($45,000 on the SSASuperAutos.com store) any time between 10 A.M. and 5 P.M. in-game time.
GTA Online Secret Cars: Space Docker
This modded-out dune buggy used to be impossible to obtain in GTA Online. It can now be claimed as a bonus reward after reaching Sponsorship Tier 500 in the demolition derby, even during Arena War in GTA Online. Unlocking the vehicle can take hundreds of hours, but it’s among one of the flashiest cars on this list.
GTA Online Secret Cars: Dubsta 2
This Mercedes G-Class lookalike is extremely rare and requires GTA Online players to wait for it to spawn in a specific street near the Vinewood Hills shown above. The vehicle will only appear between 8 A.M. and 12 A.M. in-game.
GTA Online Secret Cars: Obey Tailgater
The luxury sedan rarely spawns in the Los Santos Gol Club parking lot found on the Northwestern boundary of the city near Vinewood Hills. Simeon Yetarian has a chance at texting players about the vehicle, which is the simplest way to acquire one without constantly checking the Golf Club.
GTA Online Secret Cars: Canis Bodhi
This worn-in pickup can either be purchased from the SSASuperAutos.com store for $25,000 or found along the highway on the Northwestern part of the map seen above. The vehicle can only be spotted in that location when users are actively completing the “Dirt Road” GTA Online mission.
GTA Online Secret Cars: Canis Mesa
The Canis Mesa requires another player’s help to loot. They need to pay $7,500 to put a hit on their friend so the Merryweather mercenaries can hunt them down. The mercs will arrive driving the Canis Mesa, which players can steal and drive off in.
GTA Online Secret Cars: Imponte Phoenix
The Imponte Phoneix can spawn in several locations across Los Santos, including the Maze Bank, the Cypress Flats, and the airport terminal. The latter is the simplest to check frequently since it is near the drop-off point for Simeon’s missions.
GTA Online Secret Cars: Declasse Asea
Only new characters can acquire the Declasse Asea for free. GTA Online will make players race at the very start of the game. One of the cars they’ll be able to choose for the circuit is the Declasse Asea, which they’ll need to keep after the tutorial so they can drive it to Los Santos Customs. Alternatively, it can be purchased on theSSASuperAutos.com store for $12,000.
GTA Online Secret Cars: Custom Bravado Rumpo
A customizable version of this van can be purchased for $130,000, but any GTA Online player with VIP status can request one for a fraction of the price. All they need to do is open the Interaction Menu and select VIP Vehicles. That will send a matte-black Rumpo to them for only $7,000.
GTA Online Secret Cars: FIB Buffalo
Players can’t typically keep law enforcement vehicles in GTA Online, but the FIB Buffalo is the exception. The car will spawn in the Los Santos National Airport hanger during the Hostile Takeover VIP mission. It will also appear as part of the Time to Get Away and Heist Prep: Hacking Device missions. Players don’t need to go looking for it because it will just pull upon them. They need to remember to steal it, however.
GTA Online Secret Cars: Super Enus Diamond Car
The Diamond Car is the spitting image of a Rolls-Royce Phantom and is one of the most expensive cars in GTA Online. Like the Rumpo, it can be requested by VIP players for only $5,000, which is much more affordable than its $250,000 asking price.
GTA Online Secret Cars: Chevel Surge
The Chevel Surge can be found outside of the Video Alcove store. However, the car will only spawn between 6:00, and 9:30 am.
GTA Online Secret Cars: Declasse Tornado – Mariachi Variant
To get the Mariachi version of the Tornado, GTA Online players need to first reach a mountaintop at 19:00. From that location, players need to use a sniper rifle and look for a Mariachi Declasse Tornado being chased by the police. Players will then need to shoot the people in the car and steal it or call Lester to pick it up. Then, players can take the vehicle to Los Santos Customs and put a tracker on it. It’s worth pointing out that the Mariachi Tornado cannot be stored, but players can place it in their garage.
It is also worth mentioning that GTA Online players can get some of these rarer cars faster. If the car players want are in Simeon’s list, it has a better chance of spawning. If GTA Online players drive a car by the same manufacturer, it also has a better chance of spawning. Players can simply keep switching lobbies until the car they want spawns.
