L.A. Noire

L.A. Noire Achievements

Auto Fanatic

Drive every vehicle in the city.   

There's a total of 95 vehicles in L.A Noire:

  • 2-Door: 25 Cars
  • 4-Door: 19 Cars
  • Sports: 8 Cars
  • Service: 19 Cars
  • Police: 9 Cars
  • Special: 15 Cars

You'll have to search high and low for most of the cars but over 80% of them are on the streets driving about, so you'll most likely pass them on your journey. All you need to do is jump in and let Cole start the engine. Once that's done, a message letting you know it's a new car will pop up on the left side of the screen! If no message pops up, you've already unlocked it.

Out of the 95 cars, 15 of them are special unlocks that become available as you progress through the game and level up. To find these, locate the '?' on your map and drive to it's location. Once there, look for a garage with the 'City of Angels' logo on it and an entrance door. Simply walk in, and the garage will open and the car will be inside.

For a full guide on where to find each car, please go HERE.

Rockstar have said there are a number of rare vehicles hidden through the city...could make this one harder to get than it sounds.

I hate these stupid achievements that make you grind for a 100 hours! (Flag collecting, shooting 200 pigeons, etc.) They're not achievements! They're just a waste of my time! Rockstar goes through all this trouble to make great games, then puts in these terrible achievements! BE CREATIVE!!! (Sorry for the rant, just sink of this crap!)

Don't mind a challenge but I hate these achievements to, there's no point to them they have nowt to do with the story, but nearly every game has these acievements collect this & collect this, come up with something more enjoynig to achieve

I think this sounds fine, but can see why people wouldn't like it. Surely though this is better than shoot 200 pigeons? It's not *that* grindy.

I hope this isnt like the one from just cause 2, where you would never see a fucking coach ever.

Tuesday, May 17, 2011 @ 12:43:17 PM

The whole point to these achievements is so programers who create a game only so long can make you play their game even longer. They make a story line only so long and then expect you to play the game forever looking for things like this

Comment #26 by artphobia
Wednesday, May 18, 2011 @ 02:55:42 PM

I doubt thats the WHOLE point #25.

Love how the game shows a popup #/# as you try out a new car. Even if you get in the car for half a sec it counts, so I try out the cushions most time when I wonder by the new ones out on the street.

Comment #27 by Melanopterus
Wednesday, May 18, 2011 @ 06:04:50 PM

#16 seriously? Are people stupid enough to think that they mean every car and not every make? I am slightly shocked

And honestly they spend a lot of time and effort putting in unique cars to give the game a better look/feel achievements like these are ways to "force" people to notice that I think

the buick ambulance is driving around on 8th street between beacon and union ave.

where can i find the packard custom 2 door and the interenation police wagon. those are the only 2 that i need

Comment #29 by Zima
Friday, May 20, 2011 @ 01:15:29 AM

The International Police Wagon was found during "Reefer Madness". In front of Parnell's Soup Co. there is one that was unlocked.

Have not found "Packard Custom" 2DR, personally but was told that it appears during "The Gas Man" in the Parking Lot of the InstaHeat Factory.

I tried driving on 8th between Beacon & Union for almost 2hrs & no Buick Ambulance. I was able to find it eventually at the Good Samaritan Hospital.

is there a checklist to figure out what cars you have lef tto find? i went to the social club and when i clicked on the vehicles i found, it only showed pictures of the one i had found so i have no idea what to look for or what service cars i need to find. justr says 15/19 so how y'all know what cars you need to look for?

Comment #38 by mrkenny
Friday, May 20, 2011 @ 06:25:48 PM

go to extras(in the main menu) then to Vehicle Showcase. go through this list(it's in order of the showcase). go through and whatever vehicles are locked write them down. then go searching! 20 left for me!

Comment #39 by Zima
Friday, May 20, 2011 @ 07:07:53 PM

Wierd, I was at Gamestop & read their Brady Games guide & it said for the "International Police Wagon" & I quote:

"Many of these are locked when you find them. During "Reefer Madness," you can find one unlocked in front of Parnell's Soup Co. Factory in Hollywood just before the raid."

Anyways, I found the car in question during the case "The Studio Secretary Murder". AT the Railway at the beginning, the is one behind you before you investigate the body that was unlocked for me.

Comment #41 by Bonus Pretzel
Friday, May 20, 2011 @ 10:17:13 PM

For everyone complaining about hard grinding achievements, while I partially agree about the frustration, I would like to point out one thing...THERE ARE NO FRIGGIN' MULTIPLAYTER ACHIEVEMENTS IN THIS GAME..I know it's a single player game, just been frustrated with last games I've done having them. And to anyone who responds by saying "boost with friends for those", maybe you should look up the definition of 'achievement'.

Comment #42 by Bonus Pretzel
Friday, May 20, 2011 @ 10:19:33 PM

Oh, I have noticed types of cars seem to come in groups, not sure if its time based or area based, but if you notice a car you havent seen before, jump into all nearby vehicles. Seems to work for me, I have 60 cars done so far.

Comment #58 by BigDaddyThwak
Sunday, May 22, 2011 @ 07:26:18 PM

#33 & #37: "Reefer Madness" was an anti-drug propoganda movie made in 1936 by a church group that "informed" the public of the evils of Satan's own creation - marjijuana. Basic idea behind the movie - you smoke dope, you kill people and go insane. Oh, and there's a great "trip" scene involving - no joke - a paper chicken. If you can find a copy, watch it. Freakin' hysterical. The actual film has NOTHING to do with the game mission, but damn it, I've had that useless trivia kicking around in my head for 25 years! It had to be used!

Back on subject, I have 80 of the 85. Now I can't find the freakin' garbage truck. Seriously, I hid behind one in a gunfight, and now I'm kicking myself for not getting in the damn thing...

Cheers #44 - I now only need the 'Buick Custom' and 'International Police Wagon', I got the international wagon in the gas man but I quit the mission and it didn't count so I was wondering if I had to complete the mission ? And where do I find this Buick custom ?

Comment #60 by Popnfresh2005

The only one left for me is the tow truck. You can't get into the on from the homicide mission and I haven't seen one since and i've already completed the game.

Comment #64 by Lethargik
Sunday, May 22, 2011 @ 11:06:12 PM

I'm sure most of you have found these by now, but to help out anyone who hasn't... the Nash 600 is in the fenced lot on the west side of the Melrose/Van Ness intersection if that helps you find it. I also had a b*tch of a time finding the Packard Clipper Eight. Load up "Manifest Destiny" and get to the part where you have to tail Elsa's cab back to her place. I passed the clipper eight every time while tailing Elsa and grabbed it. You fail the mission segment, but the car still counted. If that doesn't work, the car you chase from Robert's Diner in this case is a clipper eight, so just hop in after you kill the goons in the alley. Might not be news to most, but hope it's helpful!

Comment #67 by Lethargik
Monday, May 23, 2011 @ 12:05:03 AM

@boyzalan try this - load up "Buyer Beware" and look in the parking lot next to the gun store or load up "The Quarter Moon Murders" and look in the parking lot next to the public library.

Comment #68 by Kryten1029a
Monday, May 23, 2011 @ 01:08:00 AM

@34: the car you are after is the car that they use to transport badguys. What you do is reload the first to last homocide desk case: studio secretary murder something. Then at the crimescene get in to the car first! Make sure your game saves before you quit (this cvan be done by finishing the crime scene ;))

in manifest destiny there is a street crime at the auto club. there are a ton of vehicles parked out back but if you get too close the story starts. when i went back after they were gone. if you are looking for "sports" cars check there.

Monday, May 23, 2011 @ 09:42:51 PM

I believe a fair comparison to finding all of these missing cars without any knowledge or info on their looks, with the ability to randomly spawn and disappear, is like trying to solve a case without any clues. I'm utterly miserable trying to find my last 7, I spent 2 hours without any luck. I'm missing:

Lincoln Continental Coupe,
Pontiac Torpedo Six,
Chevrolet Sedan,
Cadillac V16 Convertible,
Lincoln Continental Convertible,
Nash La Fayette Convertible,
Chevrolet Civilian Van.

Any help finding these would be MASSIVELY appreciated.

For real people! Beat game, load up free roam, and take a drive hoping in and out of all cars till you hit the 70 marker. Then look for the ones you need. Rare cars are marked with a (?) on the map and are revealed as you climb rank. Army car is located over the river between 7th ST bridge and Olympic BLVD bridge inside the base. Tow turck most often found between Hollywood and Wilshire. Meny can be found during Street Case's. Emergency cars can be found at the correct deparment buildings. If you find yourself on a mission and see a must have, STOP and get it! Much rather have the car done and redo checkpoint or risk waiting to find it again?

I saw a couple of posts by people looking for the Limo. I found one in free roam outside the police HQ/Coroner in Hollywood. It was parked on the street near the corner of the building. Hope that helps... I think some of these vehicles are somewhat randomly placed, so while it was there when I was there, it may not be for you.

i found the buick ambulance next to another abulance at one of the police stations for some odd reason but if you go to good samaritan hospital (Its one of the landmarks) it should be in the parking lot somewhere. also i've seen them driving around the streets

All I can say for anyone trying this is to be patient. I spent a good 3 hours on the last three cars I had. Keep driving around, and I found that if you can find 2 or 3 good size parking lots in each "area" that the car is supposed to spawn, you can fast travel between them and can get a good amount like this. Other than that, stay vigilant!

Saturday, May 28, 2011 @ 08:23:34 AM

Plymouth Special Deluxe Six looks like regular Plymouth Deluxe Six except the grill on the front has verticle bars instead of horizontal. can be found while roaming wilshire. I think homicide free roam starts you there. have also heard that it can be found south of union station but i doubt thats true. as for the oldsmobile hydromatic 88, i fond it early on while driving around central/downtown. have heard that it is in "silk stocking murder" in a parking lot next to just picked fruit market. also heard that in "quarter moon murders" there is one in the hall of records parking lot. may need to try some refreshers. hope you can find them

I'm at 72. It's not bad if you're going for the public menace achievement and just keep hopping into different cars. "Oh, I haven't seen that one before" is a pretty good way to go about it.

Sunday, May 29, 2011 @ 01:37:28 PM

@121: That's the site I am using too. You're right, it's not complete but it's still a step in the right direction.

When I started to actually pay attention to this achievement I had already finished 97% of the story and wasn't really paying attention to what cars I had unlocked and still needed to find.

So what I did was copy and paste the whole list of cars on that website into a word document, and looked in the vehicle showroom in the extras section off the main menu of the game. I cross checked with the showroom and utilized the strikethrough option on Word to kind of check off the cars I already found, and I highlighted the ones I still needed. Just a little organizational tip to help save a little time, hope it helps some of you.

Of course meaning that when I went back to the same place, there were none of that type of car there. What a piss take. -_-

I was dreading this achievement....but aside from the army car and the hidden vehicles, I got them all throughout the normal game play. I'm sorry I can't help with the "where is...." questions, but I can offer some advice to ppl just starting the game. Just get in every car that looks different. Especially after you interview someone, or after a cut scene. Check out nearby parking lots every time you stop somewhere. You don't have to really drive them...just start the motor. I was having trouble finding one car in particular at one point, and after a cut scene, voila, there it was in the parking lot next to my patrol car.

I've tried outside Hollywood Police Station at the start of The Naked City and on Carlton way (?) during The Black Ceaser... I feel like smashing my XBOX up and crying with frustration.

Here's a very easy way to get 2 hard-to-find cars (Packard Custom and the elusive Cadillac 61: Free roam on the Arson Desk, and play the "Hot Property" street crime. This route is littered with the Cadillac 61 and the Packard Custom. You can chase the guy until he crashes, and then both cars should be stopped and rubbernecking the scene. Hop in both cars before you apprehend him.

Hope this helps everyone!

I understand that developers put a lot of effort into filling games out. Adding these cars makes the game less monotonous and that's all great and good. When you make it an achievement though, it takes the fun out of seeing everything. A bonus mission, a special car, a different kind of weapon, or something else to a similar end would all be great motivators to do this. When you *make* someone explore the whole game it loses that feeling of importance and becomes a task. I always push for 100% game completion, but I sort of miss the days of popping in a game and playing just because it's fun. That being said, finding all of these cars was NOT NOT NOT fun. :

Man, found our the hard way: when replaying cases to get vehicles, it's not good enough to just hop in and hop out and quit; you HAVE to reach the next checkpoint of the mission. Evidently, the little "saving content" notification you get when you get a new car isn't saving $#!t.

At 147 your service ones are the polar bear ice company truck which is about as far west as you can get in hollywood on La Brea and Hawthorn. Plus the buick ambulance which is parked at the good samaritan hospital. The sport one is the mercury custom and should be on the 4th bridge viaduct.

Sunday, June 12, 2011 @ 10:15:26 PM

Heres an easy way to find cars:

1. Go to the Extras and the Vehicle show room.
2. Write down every number of the missing cars. Leave space next to the numbers.
3. Then go here:
4. Write down the names of the vehicles your missing next to their appropriate number
5. on the Wiki site click on the vehicle youre looking for. You will now know what the vehicle looks like and exactly what youre looking for.
6.The Wiki site will also give you a few basic whereabouts and ways to find the vehicle.

There are plenty of other sites that will have locations as well. I couldnt find the other one I used but this guy named Rob can find every collectible in every game and usually writes great guides.

TIP: Leave the bonus fifteen alone until y

Comment #167 by darkx3no
Monday, June 13, 2011 @ 09:33:07 AM

Here is a simple way to get every car you are missing. I can confirm that this 100% works as I did it last night.

1. Go to the extra's menu
2. Go to vehicle showroom
3. Highlight the vehicle that is blacked out (i.e. you are missing), press the X button (not sure if this is needed but i did it and it worked)
4. Go to the homicide desk and pick free roam
5. As soon as you spawn block your car in the middle of the street. The blacked out car you were missing will drive up either immediately or within a few minutes. It will sometimes be parked across this street in the parking lot as well

This for sure works with all 2-Doors, 4-Doors and Sports cars. I cannot confirm any other type of car because I had all of those before I tried this.

Hope this helps.

@JaiTizzle - You can get the tow truck using a similar glitch as mentioned earlier. Find the tow truck in the show room. Click on it's blacked out silhouette. Then do free roam on the Arson desk. Drive out to the right straight away and there should be one there. It worked for me, there was actually 3 in the end.

Urrghh, this one really sucks. It took me several hours to do this. Just driving around where the guide said the cars were likely to appear. However, its nothing consistent and completely based around luck. Does anyone even enjoy these kinds of achievements I wonder.

Sunday, September 18, 2011 @ 10:47:15 AM

There is a trick you can use to get this! But please note, this only works with SOME cars, since some of them have special locations and does not appear randomly - for more on what cars this includes, check the noire-wiki - but the trick is to go into the Car Showroom, and press X. Then you go into the Murder Desk and choose free roam. The car you have "pressed X on" SHOULD appear on the parking lot across the street or drive by the station. The rest you have to search for missions and so. This is how I got my last 30-35 cars. Don't know if this has been posted already ..

anyone who say's this is achievment is fun is strangely mistaken i hate these kinda things because the more you find the harder it gets until you only need 1 because if you check on websites for them you still don't know which ones you've already had so you have to check all of the places again best example being crackdown, for the love of god how annoying was that to find all the orbs ay?

Comment #238 by darkx3no
Wednesday, October 05, 2011 @ 12:11:15 PM

Seriously just use the trick that I posted at 168 and what addox mentioned at 233. Click x on the blacked out car in the showroom go into free mode and wait for the car to drive by the station. This works with all CARS that appear randomly on the streets. Trucks, special vehicles and ones that only appear in 1 spot will not show up. But those are the easy ones to get anyway.

This achievement was so incredibly easy with this method, I played the game normally and at the end was missing like 30 cars, took about 30 minutes and got the cars i was missing.

Sunday, October 16, 2011 @ 02:20:34 PM

Ok this one sucks, the good thing i was aware of this achievement so what i did was: Start doing this achievement as soon you begin with the game. Check almoste every parking lot @ a case location. You will end up with something like 90cars (Thats including the bonus cars from the map) befor ending every case. Thats how i did it. I only needed to look up 5 cars. I still need to do 4 more cases but i got this one in my pocket. I hope this will help for some of you.

Comment #242 by malcomio
Sunday, October 23, 2011 @ 08:15:40 AM

@240 I used this technique to pick up my remaining 2- and 4-doors, but then found that if you do the same thing but go to the Arson Free Roam, I managed to find the Tow Truck I'd been looking for. Stepped out of the car park and there were about three driving past in quick succession. I haven't tried, but maybe the Arson desk is the option to use to find the other Service vehicles...

Hey guys, I got a question, when you finish the game, if you buy the DLC's

just going to cases but i'm not sure.

Finally completed, a great game.
I'm positive their going to make a sequal for two reasons:

1. The CEO of Team Bondi Stating that it is a great and successful franchise and
that another game wouldn't take more than five years to make.

2. On L.A. Noire Wiki they give a status of Dead or Alive for all 340
characters except Cole Phelps. Hmmmmmm, I wonder?

defanitly the most annoying achievement in the game

Comment #251 by ciscomusprime
Sunday, November 27, 2011 @ 04:58:32 AM

If it's Rockstar's intent to "show off" how accurately they rendered the cars from that era, then kudos to 'em but this isn't Ach-worthy. 100% completion shows dedication. 95% clues shows an eye for detail. 5 Stars on every case shows fortitude. Only thing that pops in my mind after completing scavenger hunt task is Thank God it's over. I liked Vice City's list where you only had to find 6 cars at a time. Also, the vehicles varied like ice cream trucks, Harleys, mopeds, and dune buggies. But like mentioned before, all the Noire cars start to look the same the further ya get down the list. And why 95-freaking cars?! At least the 47,000 damage and 194.7 mile driven Achs had to do with the era. Give me a guide and I'll hunt down reels, newspapers, and locations all day long. The sole purpose

Comment #252 by MadinaLake

I don't want to read all above me, but I'm going to ask anyway.

I know which cars I do and don't have. I printed out papers and crossed it all out, leaving the ones I need when I last viewed the Vehicle Showroom. I know the areas to find them and I don't have many left, I just can't find them. Is there a way I can find them easier?

@259 that doesn't work all the time some of the trucks can only be found in one area, you can only find the army car on the small base, then there are the specialty cars such as the ambulances, and the cars you can only get in during one mission. overall I'm glad I finished this it was the second to last one I needed and it was a pain.

89 cars so far. I just roam around the place, and pick up cars in the middle of the street. Also, as your rank increases, you unlock rare cars hidden throughout the city. Use your map and look for ? marks. Some may be landmarks, others are hidden vehicles. Also try and get uncommon vehicles on the road, e.g. Instaheat lorry, fire engine, tow truck

i played the arson street crime case like 4 times trying to find the cadillac 61, then tried the trick where you press X in the vehicle showroom and then start the free roaming (started free roaming on the arson desk) and i puled out into the street and one just smashed into me

Comment #278 by xXJuicyGiantXx
Friday, May 11, 2012 @ 04:33:50 AM

yeah the car spawn trick definitely works for at least the 2 and 4 door cars, i did it on the arson desk ive heard the homocide desk is the best one to use but the arson free roam worked just fine for me. all i did was go to EXTRAS in the main menu, went to the showroom and found one that was locked, just push x then go back to the free roam and as soon as it starts and youre in the commodore look out on the street and the car thats going by should be the one. i just floored it out to the intersection to the left of the parking lot and blocked traffic until i found the one i was looking for. hope this helps.

I love achievements that involve collecting.

wait until you need only 1 more, i got into it and as the achievement unlocked i was so happy, i went and turned off the game after having put in some work, but it didnt save. i was at 94/95 vehicles on the stat sheet, and finding that last one again took me another 2 days. so make sure the save icon goes or go back into the main menu, for that 100% what a bitch.

I confirm you guys that the "Car Showroom" trick (Comment #231 by Addox) works like a works for sure with all the 2 and 4 doors cars (which are the most difficult to find). Not 100% sure about the other cars categories because I used only for my last 10/20 2 and 4 doors cars...

Soupman17... Sometimes (depending on location) you are not able to enter those cars. Think of them as NPC's. Luckily those 3 cars are almost at every crime scene. Usually, if you see them parked at a crime scene and the doors are open (any door), you will not be able to enter it.

There's an easy way to do it. Start up at the Extras menu, go over to your locked car. When it's on the screen, back out & go to free roam on any desk (I preferred Homicide) as you load up the car should either be parked near your car or driving around. Use your car to block off the road and search for what the car looks like. Here is a list of the vehicles in the same order as shown in the Display Case in the Extras menu. This method works with 2 door & 4 door cars, anything else is a bit finnicky. The link ^ has methods for the non-2D/4D cars.

Happy hunting!
