If you have an unexpectedly urgent need for a getaway vehicle, the developers at Rockstar have handily included a selection of vehicle spawn cheats that should help you out in a pinch.
Vehicle cheats: cars, bikes, helicopters and planes
Caddy: Take a break from the pressures of city life and maim, murder and dismember people from the slow-moving comfort of the humble golf cart. You probably want to jump into something zippier when the cops turn up though.
|PS3||O, L1, Left, R1, L2, X, R1, L1, O, X|
|Xbox 360||B, LB, Left, RB, LT, A, RB, LB, B, A|
Comet: A great all-rounder on four wheels, the Comet's a dependable vehicle for getting away from even the most ill-advised of rampages.
|PS3||R1, O, R2, Right, L1, L2, X, X, Square, R1|
|Xbox 360||RB, B, RT, Right, LB, LT, A, A, X, RB|
Rapid GT: The Rapid GT lacks the handling finesse that we like in the Comet, but as a proper two-seater sports car it certainly wins out in the looks department.
|PS3||R2, L1, O, Right, L1, R1, Right, Left, O, R2|
|Xbox 360||RT, LB, B, Right, LB, RB, Right, Left, B, RT|
Stretch Limo: Perfect for the well-heeled lunatic about town, the limo will get you wherever you're headed in style. Not quite the turning circle you're looking for in a getaway vehicle though.
|PS3||R2, Right, L2, Left, Left, R1, L1, O, Right|
|Xbox 360||RT, Right, LT, Left, Left, RB, LB, B, Right|
Garbage Truck: If, on the other hand, you like to take out the trash with a rather distinct lack of style, you could always spawn yourself this trash-chewing monstrosity.
|PS3||Circle, R1, Circle, R1, Left, Left, R1, L1, Circle, Right|
|Xbox 360||B, RB, B, RB, Left, Left, RB, LB, B, Right|
BMX: Ideal for scooting around the narrower alleys of Los Santos (although less ideal for escaping the attentions of a military helicopter), the BMX really comes into its own in the countryside.
|PS3||Left, Left, Right, Right, Left, Right, Square, O, Triangle, R1, R2|
|Xbox 360||Left, Left, Right, Right, Left, Right, X, B,Y, RB, RT|
Maibatsu Sanchez: While not the fastest bike in the game, the Sanchez is extremely useful when it comes to ripping through extreme terrain. Handy for the mountains and countryside of GTA 5.
|PS3||O, X, L1, O, O, L1, O, R1, R2, L2, L1, L1|
|Xbox 360||B, A, LB, B, B, LB, B, RB, RT, LT, LB, LB|
Shitzu PCJ 600:: Of all the bikes you can spawn in a crisis, we're rather fond of the PCJ 600. It's an all-round decent mix of reliable handling with just enough horsepower to get away from the bad/good guys, depending on your perspective.
|PS3||R1, Right, Left, Right, R2, Left, Right, Square, Right, L2, L1, L1|
|Xbox 360||RB, Right, Left, Right, RT, Left, Right, X, Right, LT, LB, LB|
Helicopters and airplanes
Buzzard: This lightweight helicopter may well be agile in the air - and it even packs a little light firepower too - but it's really not built for endurance. Great for running away, not so great for a showdown, in other words.
|PS3||O, O, L1, O, O, O, L1, L2, R1, Triangle, O, Triangle|
|Xbox 360||B, B, LB, B,B,B,LB, LT, RB, Y, B, Y|
Duster: For a more sedate, old-fashioned tour about town, you could always spawn yourself this charming old-world crop-duster. Then spray smoke through the city streets, before killing everyone from the safety of the shadows.
|PS3||Right, Left, R1, R1, R1, Left, Triangle, Triangle, X, O, L1, L1|
|Xbox 360||Right, Left, RB, RB, RB, Left, Y, Y, A, B, LB, LB|
Stunt Plane: If you can master the rather twitchy controls of the stunt plane, you'll find no better vehicle for showing off your aerobatic skills. It's certainly nimbler then the Duster, and packs a little more horsepower to help you zip across the map more quickly.
|PS3||O, Right, L1, L2, Left, R1, L1, L1, Left, Left, X, Triangle|
|Xbox 360||B, Right, LB, LT, Left, RB, LB, LB, Left, Left, A, Y|
