The car's performance could be described as average; its acceleration is underwhelming, but it has a moderate top speed. The car is also prone to understeer, owing to its size and small tires.

The Hermes is a customized late '40s, early '50s coupe available in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories.

Description Edit

Design Edit

The Hermes, appearing as a two-door coupe, is distinguishable by its large body but seemingly small occupant visibility. The Hermes is based on a 1949/1950 Mercury Eight (judging by the body and taillights), the car is evidently modified with its roof chopped down, enhancing the vehicle's lead sled-like appearance; compared to the '49 and '50 Mercuries, it has an additional pair of taillights. The car's taillights also resemble the ones of a Fiat Brava SX.

Performance Edit

The car's performance could be described as average; its acceleration is underwhelming, but it has a moderate top speed. It is unusual in that it has front wheel drive (very rare in American cars of the period) and it can't be blown up with a gas-tank shot like most cars in GTA San Andreas. The car is also prone to understeer, owing to its large size, small tires and front wheel drive. In GTA San Andreas the brakes are extremely inefficient and are among the worst in the game, but in the hands of an experienced player the vehicle may be used for drifting. As it only has two doors, the Hermes can only seat two, making it unsuitable for drive-bys.

Variant Edit

In GTA Vice City and GTA Vice City Stories, a modified gang version of the car driven by the Cubans, dubbed the Cuban Hermes, is commonly spotted in Little Havana, Vice City.

Modifications (GTA San Andreas) Edit
