Below is a list of locations the 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T can be found in Driver: San Francisco
- Found at Tanner mission markers (Note that the mission will start when shifting into the Challenger, and you will be forced into shift mode once completing the mission)
- Can be found at any of the garages (only after completing the story for the first time and purchasing it at any garage for 1 WillPower)
- In CGI cut-scenes and promotional material, the Challenger is painted yellow, however in gameplay, it is painted more of an orange-yellow color.
- In Grand Theft Auto V's Online mode, as part of the Diamond Casino & Resort update, the Bravado Gauntlet Classic was added, if a player chooses to apply Classic Yellow paint, the twin black stripes livery, and a low-level wing, the vehicle can have an extremely uncanny resemblance to the Challenger in Driver: San Francisco.
- The color scheme seen in the official artworks is actually based off the original Buick GSX seen in the beta versions of Driver.
