In Singleplayer, there is a minor glitch resulting in some cars having no driver, but they will still drive around like normal. This behavior is most likely to be seen in and around the Lago Zancudo area. They will turn aggressive and drive away if the player fires a weapon, mimicking regular pedestrian behavior.
Ghost Cars also appear in GTA Online. They spawn randomly and can be stolen. Also, they can randomly disappear too, and can appear if a player lags out. The lagging out, or purchase of a vehicle replacing the personal vehicle, creates a car that is unobtainable, even if the windows are shot out.
A ghost car akin to the classic Stephen King Horror Flick Christine was also added to the game in 2021 Halloween, being a Red Tornado with white roof and whitewall tyres that stalks players when they're in vehicles and will light on fire and attack when they're on foot.
