The Vapid Motor Company or simply Vapid (BAWSAQ: VAP) is an American automotive company in the HD Universe. According to advertisements in GTA V, it was founded in 1942.


It is primarily based on Ford Motor Company, although some of its models resemble some of those made by Chevrolet, Dodge, Land Rover, and even the International Harvester/Navistar International. In parody of Ford's famous blue oval badge, Vapid's logo is a red oval. The word 'vapid' means 'dull' but also sounds similar to 'rapid,' a possible motivation for the use of the name. Vapid is one of the biggest car manufacturers in the Grand Theft Auto series. Just like Ford, Vapid operated an aircraft division, and owned an aircraft hangar out in Grapeseed before it was bought by Trevor Philips.
