The Dominator features a front engine, [[Drivetrains in GTA V|rear wheel drive]] layout. The car also features a high torque V8 engine, which gives it fast acceleration and a above average top speed. However, due to its excessive torque levels, the car suffers from a common muscle car problem: the engine supplies too much torque for the transmission and wheels to handle, causing it to fishtail if the gas is applied when cornering, and acceleration tends to take a while to boost the car off to a high speed.

"Baby boomer teen dream repackaged for the mass market generation. A muscle car without the muscle that's rental vehicle of choice for tourists looking for a slice of 'real' Americana."
Southernsanandreassuperautos.com description

The Vapid Dominator is two-door muscle car featured in Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online.

Design Edit

The main body of the Dominator seems to be heavily inspired by the fifth generation Ford Mustang, with flared wheel arches, connected to the elevated area that spans the lower body. The front headlight pockets are taken from the fifth generation Mustang, with the circular headlights, squared grille and hood being skewed forwards and down.

Halfway up the body, the main body line makes a sharp angular turn, signaling the classical inspiration of the first generation Mustang. The car features twelve spoke wheels, wrapped in low profile tires.

The rear hatch closely resembles a fastback design, also taken from the first generation Mustang. The front grille design, rear fascia and taillights and are derived straight from the 1970 Ford Mustang fastback. The rear lights are placed on an impressed area between the rear spoiler and rear bumper which resembles the forth generation mustang (New Edge 1999-2004). The rear bumper features circular dual exhaust with chrome tips.

Performance Edit

GTA V Edit

The Dominator features a front engine, rear wheel drive layout. The car also features a high torque V8 engine, which gives it fast acceleration and a above average top speed. However, due to its excessive torque levels, the car suffers from a common muscle car problem: the engine supplies too much torque for the transmission and wheels to handle, causing it to fishtail if the gas is applied when cornering, and acceleration tends to take a while to boost the car off to a high speed.
