As part of the recently released San Andreas Mercenaries DLC, Rockstar Games removed 194 vehicles from being able to be purchased in GTA Online via the in-game websites.

Rockstar mentioned that the removed vehicles "would be made available via events showrooms, The Lucky Wheel, and other places". Thankfully 71 of them can still be stolen off the street, but 123 are currently completely unobtainable.

The decision was obviously not well-received by the community. This article gives you alternative methods on how you can still acquire these vehicles.

Before we jump into it, we think it's important to clarify that the cars are not removed from the game, and if you own any of the above-mentioned vehicles, they will not be removed from your garages. They are just no longer available for purchase on the in-game websites.

Following are the methods to acquire some or all of the now de-listed GTA Online vehicles based on player/platform criteria:

How To Buy Removed Vehicles on Next-Gen Without GTA+

If you are playing the Next-Gen version of GTA Online (Xbox Series X|S or PlayStation 5) without GTA+ membership, you can purchase all of the removed vehicles from other players who already own them at the LS Car Meet.

This is thanks to the Los Santos Car Meet feature that makes it possible to buy a copy of someone else's vehicle.

However, this feature is exclusive to the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S editions for GTA Online.

There is a sub-community where you can communicate with other players and arrange to buy and sell cars there. Check r/GTACarMeetMarket for more details.

How To Get Removed Vehicles In GTA Online

If you playing GTA Online on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, or PC platform (or playing the old-gen version of the game on next-gen consoles) then you have these options at your disposal to obtain the removed vehicles:

  • Purchase vehicles when they become available at Luxury Auotos, Simeon's dealership, or Test Ride in LSCM.
  • Win vehicles when they are available at Casino Podium or Prize Ride in LSCM.
  • Purchase customer vehicles at your Auto Shop or Custom Bike Shop.
  • Some vehicles might even be available to purchase as part of an event but those don't come around every week like the ones mentioned above.
  • Using the Gift Car To Friend Glitch (requires 2 players and a fair bit of time). This method is not recommended because it requires a fair bit of time and some prerequisites to obtain each vehicle.

GTA+ Members

Having GTA+ gives an additional benefit on top of the ones listed above.

It allows next-gen players to purchase a few more among the removed vehicles being offered at the Vinewood Car Club every week at a discount.
