In GTA San Andreas the Tornado assumes the design of a [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:58_Chevrolet_Impala.jpg 1958 Chevrolet Impala] but without the features of dual headlights.
  +
====HD Universe====
  +
In GTA V, The Tornado resembles a [[wp:Chevrolet Bel Air|1958 Chevrolet Bel Air]] in its front end and overall shape, with a bumper similar to a [[wp:Cadillac Eldorado|1957 Cadillac Eldorado]], and 1957 Bel Air style rear wings and trunk. Other than the dual headlight, it goes to resemble it's predecessor alot.

==Performance==
=== Design ===
+
Having only two doors, the Tornado is only designed to carry two occupants. The car does make up for this with its above average top speed and acceleration, as well as its generally stable cornering (even with its long wheelbase that is supposed to hamper the car's maneuverability). Braking, however, isn't so great.
The Tornado assumes the design of a late-1950s coupe, most likely a 1958 Chevy Impala, with signature sweeping curves and tailfins. The front half of the car (and most of the front bumper and grille) and rear window resemble those of a [[wp:Chevrolet Bel Air#1955–1957|1957 Chevrolet Bel Air]], while the windscreen, sides, back side and bottom half of the front bumper resemble a [[wp:Chevrolet Bel Air#1958|1958 Chevrolet Bel Air]].
 
The car serves as one of several gang cars for the [[Los Santos Vagos]].
 
   
[[Image:Tornado-GTASA-rear.jpg|thumb|260px|Rear quarter view]]
+
The Tornado is also quite durable and can take a good bit of Road Damage/Gunfire before exploding. Although it doesn't appear to have a visible fuel cap, it will explode if the front engine is shot enough or hit from a high Enough impact (Ex. Rolling down a steep hill and directly hitting the ground with sensitive spots may result in an instant explosion). The Beater models commonly found in Blaine County tend to have a delayed engine ignition, which could become a problem in the event of a situation that requires a quick getaway.

Having only two doors, the Tornado is only designed to carry two occupants, and as a result, is not a good choice for drive-bys because it lacks the four-seats that many other gang cars have. The car does make up for this deficiency with its above average top speed and acceleration (faster than most four-door lowriders), as well as its generally stable cornering even with its long wheelbase that is supposed to hamper the car's maneuverability. Its low ground clearance, however, clearly makes the car unsuitable for rugged off-roading.

In GTA V, The Tornado resembles a 1958 Chevrolet Bel Air in its front end and overall shape, with a bumper similar to a 1957 Cadillac Eldorado, and 1957 Bel Air style rear wings and trunk. Other than the dual headlight, it goes to resemble it's predecessor alot.
