GTA 5 Slamvan
The GTA 5 Slamvan is a muscle car featured in Grand Theft Auto 5 and GTA Online; it was added to the game in the 1.19 Festive Surprise 2014 update on December 18, 2014. As well as GTA IV and GTA San Andreas, this vehicle appears in Grand Theft Auto 5.
San Andreas Low-riders and Liberty City bikers are my favorite 50s pick-ups. Vapid Slamvan’s lines, chrome details, and shiny paintwork have made it a favorite toy of idiots who don’t grow up. As part of the Festive Surprise update, the Slamvan is featured in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Grand Theft Auto V, and Grand Theft Auto Online. In the HD Universe, it is manufactured by Vapid.
Design of GTA 5 Slamvan
As you can see from the pictures, the Slamvan looks like an off-road version of the second-generation Chevrolet/GMC C/K Series. It has a chopped roof and custom suspension, while the vehicle’s front resembles a Dodge Sidewinder (except for the headlights).
A Slamvan is a custom-designed pick-up truck with a black bed cover, rectangular taillights, dual circular headlights, and a small cabin. Slamvan’s also spawned with custom steering wheels and chain brakes. There is only a single color choice for these vehicles. There was a different design for the wheels and paint job on the Slamvan in the beta version. There are some similarities between the Slamvan and the Rat Rodded 1953–1956 Ford F-Series Pickup and the Chevrolet Advance Design. The top half of the cab appears to come from a Ford F-Series from 1967-1972.
A classic pick-up truck, the Slamvan has the same front styling as the van it replaces (renamed under a different name), with rear-facing split windows and a truck bed. Like the Bobcat from Grand Theft Auto IV, the truck bed comes with wooden floors, side border extensions, and a tailgate with “VAPID” emblazoned on it. The rear bumper and tail lights were taken from the Tow truck (another vehicle whose design has many similarities), although they are cleaner in appearance. Bobcat-inspired textures and dials decorate the interior.
On the car’s main body, the primary color is applied, while the secondary color is applied on the hood, the upper part of the cabin, and the upper borders of the bed. The tow truck shares the same wheel design, a derivative of the “Classic Rod” wheels in Los Santos Customs.
Performance of GTA 5 Slamvan
Because of its supercharged V8 and upgraded suspension, the Slamvan is surprisingly elegant and comfortable to drive. The vehicle has good acceleration and average top speed. While its brakes are similarly strong, capable of stopping quickly from top speeds to zero, its downsides are arguably poor durability and stability. Despite its low height, it does still roll over easily.
With four double-barrel carburetors, the Slamvan’s V8 sounds similar to The Liberator, Duke of Death, and Marshall. Testing and in-game stat bars have shown the same performance as the Rat-Truck and Rat-Loader. Therefore, it has an average acceleration and top speed, coupled with poor brakes and traction.
Getting the Slamvan in GTA 5 story mode?
In Grand Theft Auto V (GTA V), the Slamvan is a popular vehicle that can be obtained in story mode, but it requires some effort and a bit of luck. The Slamvan is a modified van that can be found in certain areas of the game. To get the Slamvan in story mode, players must complete the “Burger Shot” assassination mission, which is available after completing the main story missions. After completing the mission, the Slamvan will be available for purchase from the in-game website called Southern San Andreas Super Autos for $49,500.
However, there is also a chance that the Slamvan can spawn randomly in certain locations. The chances of this happening are relatively low, but players can increase their chances by driving other modified vehicles, such as the Sabre Turbo, around the areas where the Slamvan is known to spawn. It is also recommended that players save their game frequently while searching for the Slamvan in case it spawns unexpectedly.
Getting the Slamvan in GTA V story mode requires players to complete a mission and purchase the vehicle or search for it in specific locations. It may take some time and persistence, but the satisfaction of owning and driving the Slamvan is worth the effort.
For $49,500, the Slamvan can only be obtained through the in-game internet in GTA 5 Story Mode.

In GTA 5, how do you get lost, Slamvan?
You can obtain the Lost Slamvan by visiting the ‘Lucky Wheel’ in the Diamond Casino and Resort. The wheel can only be spun once per day for a chance to win one of several prizes, including clothing, large sums of cash, discounts, and mystery prizes. The ‘Vehicle’ option only appears once on the lucky wheel, so you must land on it first to be eligible.
There’s no guarantee you’ve got the Lost Slamvan just because you’ve landed on the Vehicle segment. The Lost Slamvan has a painfully low 0.005% chance of becoming the following prize in GTA Online since a random vehicle will be chosen from a list of available vehicles.
