Rarest Cars of All Time in GTA [Top 10 List]

1 /10

Lost Slamvan

Lost Slamvan in GTA

The Lost Slamvan is a modded variant of the standard Slamvan; it’s known for being one of the official gang vehicles of the Lost MC gang in Grand Theft Auto IV, hence the gang markings around the body. The black and red colors of this vehicle are known to be the main colors of the Lost MC gang.

Obtaining the Lost Slamvan is nowhere near easy, and it’ll take a lot of luck for players to get it. The only way to get this car is by visiting the Diamond Casino & Resort daily and spinning the Lucky Wheel; however, it goes without saying that this car will need to be the car being shown off in order to win it. 

Though, given that there is a very low chance of spinning and landing on the mystery vehicle prize, there is essentially a 1 in 20,000 chance of getting the Lost Slamvan.

Canis Mesa

Canis Mesa in GTA

If you’ve ever had Merryweather sent after you, or you sent them after another player, you may recognize that this Canis Mesa is one of their vehicles. There are three different variants of the Mesa, but the Merryweather variant is by far the most rare and difficult variation to get.

The only way players can get this car is by calling Merryweather and sending the mercenaries after some other player; it will cost you $7,500. Once the mercenaries show up, you’ll then need to steal one of the Canis Mesas and take it to one of the Los Santos Customs locations to add insurance and a tracker to it.

3 /10

Space Docker

Space Docker in GTA

The Space Docker is not only one of the rarest cars in Grand Theft Auto V, but it’s also by far one of the most unique looking. This car is the classic Dune Buggy we’ve all seen roaming around Sandy Shores, but it’s been heavily modded with parts that give it what seems like a space theme.

To get the Space Docker, you’ll need to go to the Arena Wars website on your phone in GTA Online and purchase an Arena War workshop. Once you’ve done that, you’ll need to grind quite a bit on Arena Wars until you get to Sponsorship Rank 500

This makes it a very difficult car to obtain, not only because it takes a lot of grinding to reach rank 500, but it’s a bit more difficult now to play Arena Wars with so few players.

Imponte Ruiner 2000 — Modded Variant

Modded Imponte Ruiner 2000 in GTA

The standard Imponte Ruiner 2000 isn’t too difficult to find in GTA Online; however, the modded variant of it is. Though, to get the modded Ruiner, you have to either steal or buy the standard model. If you choose to buy this car, it’ll set you back nearly $6 million, but for all the armor and weaponry you get with it, that seems somewhat worth it.

Once you’ve obtained the standard Imponte Ruiner 2000, you will need to go into the city to Los Santos Customs. Drive back and forth around here a few times, and eventually the modded variant of the Ruiner will spawn inside the area.

5 /10

Imponte Phoenix

Imponte Phoenix in GTA

What makes the Imponte Phoenix so rare is the fact that this particular rare car cannot be bought from any of the online car dealerships on their GTA Online phone. The only way to really get this car is by waiting for it to spawn; however, there’s no specific time when it does spawn.

If you ever want to find this car, you can keep an eye out in some of the most common spawn areas, such as near the Maze Bank Arena, in East Vinewood, or near Cypress Flats. Though you’ll likely spend a lot of your time watching these areas for one this extremely rare spawn.

6 /10

Rusted Tractor

Rusted Tractor in GTA

This rusted tractor likely isn’t one of the rare vehicles that many players are eager to get due to how slow it is, but it is still rare, nonetheless. It is so rare, in fact, that the only way players can get it is from the Arena Wars DLC. Much like the Space Docker, you’ll need to grind in the Arena Wars to get this vehicle; though, for this one, you’ll need to reach Sponsorship Rank 1000.

7 /10

Dubsta 2 - Modded Variant

Modded Dubsta 2 in GTA

Another extremely rare spawn in GTA Online is the Dubsta 2, specifically the modded Dubsta 2. This rare vehicle can be found spawning in Vinewood Hills in a driveway; however, it’s a very rare spawn chance. If you want to get this car, keep an eye out in that area at 8 a.m. and again at 3 p.m.

On the rare chance that you get a Dubsta 2, you can then take it to a Los Santos Customs location and customize it, add insurance, a tracker, etc. Once you own one of these cars, you can use it to see more of them by driving it throughout the West Eclipse Boulevard intersection.

8 /10

Modded Sandking XL

Modded Sandking XL in GTA

The modded Sandking XL is a special variant of the regular Sandking XL; the modded version is a rare find, while the regular Sandking XL can be seen spawning on Highway 68 throughout the day. Steal a regular one first, and take it down to Harmony LSC.

On the dirt road, head south and turn around and turn east to drive towards the prison. Right before you get to the prison, take a left turn by the fruit stand. Continue doing this between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m.; this should make a blue or yellow modded Sandking XL spawn.

9 /10

FIB Buffalo

FIB Buffalo in GTA

The FIB Buffalo is a special vehicle that is only driven by a FIB agent; however, players can attempt to steal one for themselves. There are two ways you could go about getting one of these rare vehicles, but only one method will allow you to permanently keep the vehicle and modify it. The first way is to eliminate a FIB agent and steal the car, but you won’t be able to modify it or keep it.

If you want to be able to keep the FIB Buffalo, you will need to complete the Hostile Takeover VIP missions; the mission involving the Los Santos National Airport is the one that will spawn the car, which you can then steal and keep.

10 /10

Declasse Tornado - Mariachi Variant

Modded Declasse Tornado in GTA

GTA Online consists of a car collection of these Declasse Tornados; the rarest one is the Mariachi variant, which can be found at the cliff of the Altruist Camp. This isn’t too rare, but the car is surrounded by police officers when it spawns, so watch out for that. Keep in mind, however, that the Declasse Tornado only stays there for a certain amount of time; if you don’t get to it in time, it drives off the cliff.

The best way to get the car is by using a sniper rifle to take out the people sitting inside the Declasse Tornado. You can then take your chances at getting through the police to get the car, or you can call Lester to get the cops off your trail. Once you steal the car, take it to a Los Santos Customs location and purchase a tracker for it.
