An abandoned car is highlighted as being available on the map with a timer counting down its window of availability. Within that window, the player can find the hidden abandoned car and return it to Rav's workshop on the airfield.
The location of an abandoned car is not shown to the player until they pass close enough to its location in Fortune Valley. They are highlighted by an abandoned car icon above the vehicle, and are also highlighted by a notification as well as having a marker for their location placed on the player's map.
Approaching an abandoned car will prompt the player to enter the car. Upon entering the car, the player must return with the vehicle to Rav's workshop on the airfield whilst being pursued by the Fortune Valley Police Department.
The player is allowed to take any route they wish to Rav's workshop as there are no checkpoints or timer, but being busted will require the player to restart the event to unlock the abandoned car.
Reaching Rav's workshop with an abandoned car will unlock it for purchase from a dealership.
