Bring Any Car from Story Mode to GTA Online – Modded or Not!


Want to get any car (modded or not) from the singe player mode of GTA V into GTA Online? Then follow this guide – it works for both Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 versions of the game, and yes, allows you to bring full modded cars over from story mode to multiplayer!

  1. Your spawn location must be set to “Last Location” and you should have no personal vehicles outside (they should all be in your garage).
  2. Go to the nearest Los Santos Customs and stand just outside. Then press pause, go to “Online” and select “Leave GTA Online”.
  3. You’ll spawn in story mode. Now you need to find the vehicle you want. If you want to mod the vehicle, switch to Franklin first and then once you have the vehicle you want, modify it at his LSC at Sandy Shores.
  4. Now, jump out of the vehicle and stand next to it, then press pause and start an invite-only session of GTA Online.
  5. You’ll then spawn in GTA Online and should be across from the Los Santos Customs. Now find the nearest car (any) and take it inside the LSC. When inside, press pause and go the game store for your system.
  6. This is the important part: as the camera zooms out above the city, if you are on PS3 then press the PS button on your controller, go to PSN and press triangle over “Account Management”. Sign out. If you are on Xbox 360, when the camera zooms out you need to unplug your network cable from your console.
  7. Either of the above methods will result in an error when your game store loads up and you will automatically go back to single player mode.
  8. When you’re back in SP mode go back to the car you want to take over to GTA Online and take that to the nearest LSC. Drive up to the door of the LSC and when it opens park it halfway through (so that it can’t close).
  9. Now stay in your car and if you’re on PS3 sign back into PSN (and if on Xbox 360 plug your cable back in and sign in). Then press pause and start an invite-only session of GTA Online.
  10. You’ll spawn in GTA Online and be near the LSC. Go to the LSC’s door and you should find your car from story mode there parked under the door!

Extra tip for extra cash: What you should also notice is that a duplicate of the car is opposite the LSC. What you can then do is get the car across the street (leaving the first car under the LSC garage door) and drive it to just outside the LSC where the first car is. Then get in the first car and drive it into the LSC and sell it. Then you’ll spawn outside with the “duped car” which will be your person vehicle and you’ll have some GTA$!


    It works – thank you!

    how do people find all this out seriously

    • Waffle

      They steal it from a subreddit called “gtaglitches” and do not provide any credit.

        Hmm, you waffle doesn’t happen to be a huge one, does it?

        • Waffle

          Maybe it does.

        Waffle see my comment above – this was reader submitted content. We would be happy to credit someone else if appropriate.

      Most of our guides are submitted by readers, who we give the opportunity to be given credit if they want. If our readers themselves have taken the guide/method/whatever from somewhere else we would be happy to credit the correct person.

        It is on the subreddit called “GTAGlitches” it keeps deleting my comment when I post a direct link.

    How do I do step 6 with a slim xbox 360? There isn’t a cable to disconnect.

  • Not working for me? I’m on GTAV version 1.09..

  • Fred

    This is really useless because you can’t keep or sell the duplicated car.

    • david g

      it depends on which car u carry over. if the cars are lower end cars that u set up then yes u can keep it. but if they are high end cars then no. so the best thing to do is to full set up franklin car and carry it over. it sells for like 113k each time.

        Whatever… It’s not worth the effort. Anyway, I found a real honeypot of a glitch for $GTA. However, I’m only sharing it with people I know because I don’t want R* to ever plug this particular hole. I’ve already sucked a couple of $Billion out. Now, if we can just figure out a way to share our newest found wealth…

  • KW

    Thanks, this worked great! One other thing I found is that once the car is imported to GTA:Online, you can then take it inside LSC and add a tracker and insurance to it. This will then create 2 versions of your car; a personal vehicle and the car the just came out of LSC with. That’s not all, if you take the car that isn’t marked as your personal vehicle, you can then go back into LSC and add a tracker and insurance again to add another duplicate to your garage, and keep going until your garage is full. I haven’t tried selling them yet, but I currently have 6 Buffalo’s sitting in my garage at ~$120k each waiting to be sold.
