A car bomb is an explosive device that is placed in a car to be used as a bomb.


The use of car bombs was first used in Grand Theft Auto advance and onwards. Its considered a weapon, which can only be used if the player takes their vehicle to a bomb shop. Once planted, the player will be given a detonator that is used to activate the bomb.


There are three different types of car bombs in the Grand Theft Auto series:

  • Engine Ignition Detonation: The bomb detonates when a person enters the car.
  • Eight-Second Time Delay Detonation: The bomb will detonate after eight seconds has passed.
  • Remote Detonation: The bomb is manually detonated with a Detonator.

In Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Remote Detonation is the only type of detonation that the player can use for their car bombs.
