File Description

Here is Charlie Croker's Blue MINI Cooper from the Movie "The Italian Job" (i think the newer version?, since the cars look too new), this car is highly detailed and includes high resolution textures, new handling, and a highly detailed interior. This car will replace the Manana within the Game. For those that want to try an "Italian Job", the back seat of the car has been lowered and it has gold on it.

Please note that is highly recommended that you back up your files just incase this messes up your game or you do not like this modification.

New Italian Job: Charlie Croker's Blue MINI Cooper for Vice City on the PC (this version NOT for GTA3)

Converted by Jonathan Mace ( from an original by Stecki (, purchased from  Check out Turbosquid for more of his excellent work...  Textures and modelling by Jonathan Mace and Stecki.  These files copyright Jonathan Mace and Stecki, 2002-2003.  The Italian Job TM and copyright Paramount Pictures 2003.  Please do not edit or redistribute without written permission.  Just email me at and I'll probably agree...

New model, with full damage, carcol compatible colours (body is [prim], roof is [sec], high res textures, new handling, custom collision file, 3d wheels using DMagic1's Wheel Mod, folded down rear seats with strongbox full of gold in the boot as extra1 (appears in about half the in-game cars).


IMG Explorer or IMGTool
Vice City GXT Editor v1.0 by CyQ (optional, recommended), from under Tools of the Trade>Archive, listed as Vice City GTX Editor
Collision File Editor (optional, highly recommended), from on the downloads page; it's the Collision File Editor you want, not Collision File Viewer or Maker (imports the collision file to match the ends of the car)
DMagic1's Wheel Mod, included in this archive

You can replace another TWO-DOOR car instead of the Manana if you want.  These are the settings for the car if used to replace the Manana.  To replace a different car, just replace the data for that car instead of the Manana and rename all the files accordingly, but don't blame me if you make a mistake...  ;)

BEFORE YOU START:  All GTA Vice City files are Read Only by default.   To enable editing, right-click on them in Windows Explorer or My Computer and choose Properties, then click the box next to 'Read Only' to clear it, then click Ok.  You can either do this for each file as you come to it, or right click on the actual \Grand Theft Auto Vice City\ folder and choose to apply the change to all files and subfolders (in Windows XP at least).

VERY IMPORTANT:  Make sure you have installed DMagic's Vice City wheel mod by following the instructions in the included 'Wheel Mod Installation.txt' file in the 'DMagic1's ViceCity WheelMod' folder.

Add the following lines to the game files:

carcols.dat (between line ending '#94 dark 5' and the next line, that says 'end')

95,93,98			# 95 DarkSilver
253,236,67			# 96 LiquidYellow
0,0,67			# 97 IndyBlue
84,173,240			# 98 ElectricBlue
0,39,4			# 99 BritishRacingGreen
177,177,181			# 100 PureSilver
188,0,0			# 101 ChiliRed
77,0,9			# 102 VelvetRed
200,193,186			# 103 Pepper White

and replace the manana line in carcols.dat with:
manana, 97,1

Replace the manana line in default.ide with:
140, 	manana, 	manana, 	car, 	MANANA, 	MANANA, 		null,	poorfamily, 	10, 	6,	0,		249, 0.7

Replace the MANANA line in handling.cfg with:
MANANA         1150.0 2.3 4.5 1.6 0.0 0.0 -0.25 70 1.10 0.84 0.53 5 225.0 29.0 F P 11.1 0.52 1 35.0 2.6 0.14 0.2 0.3  55000 0.25 -0.10 0.5   0.0 800B 1 1

Then open vehicles.col from the \Grand Theft Auto Vice City\models\coll\ folder using the Collision File Editor and add the new manana.col as follows.
	1/ File>Load and open vehicles.col 
	2/ Click on 'manana' in the top frame to select it. 
	3/ Click the 'Rename' button (on the right hand side). Rename manana to manan00.
	4/ Click the Import button (click 'Yes' to confirm and apply the changes you made to manana) and find the new manana.col. Click 'Open', then click 'manana' in the next window to select it and click 'Import'
	5/ Click File>Save and 'Yes' to confirm that you want to overwrite vehicles.col
Close the Collision File Editor.

Import manana.dff and manana.txd into \Grand Theft Auto Vice City\models\gta3.img and manana.txd into \Grand Theft Auto Vice City\models\txd.img if it exists.

If you have GXT Editor, start the program.  It's not very user friendly and gives a path error unless you type in the full path to american.gxt in the box at the top BEFORE you click load, rather than clicking load then browsing like any normal program.

The default path for american.gxt is C:\Program Files\Rockstar Games\Grand Theft Auto Vice City\TEXT\american.gxt so copy and paste or type that into the box (or edit it for your own path if you installed it somewhere else), then click 'Load'. After a few seconds, the file will load.

Make sure 'MAIN' is highlighted in the left hand window, then scroll down the right hand one to find and highlight 'MANANA'. 'Manana' should then appear in the bottom window. Type 'MINI Cooper' instead of 'Manana' in the bottom window, then click 'Apply' in the bottom right corner. Finally, click 'Save' at the top right and close GXT Editor!

That's it, now go play!
