The Vapid Clown Van is a unique vehicle that appears in Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online.


Grand Theft Auto V

The Clown Van is essentially a Speedo, featuring various additional modifications along with its unique theme; it has a colorful "Fiddler the Clown" paint job with some unique cosmetic features such as a red nose attached to the grille and horns attached to the roof. It also features custom rims, whitewall tires and a clown horn as stock. The van also has a unique backfire effect, which plays a clown sound. Unlike the regular Speedo, the Clown Van has a clean interior, as opposed to the dirty interior of the Speedo. The radio display is also static, as it reads "SPEEDO" rather than the radio station currently playing.

Grand Theft Auto V

The Clown Van shares the handling line with the regular Speedo, supported by its performance in game. The vehicle has a light body weight, yet sluggish acceleration. It has a relatively high top speed for its class, however.

Prominent Appearances in Missions

  • As already mentioned, the van appears only once during the storyline; Grass Roots. The vehicle is inaccessible during this mission, and cannot be kept afterwards. Despite this, the vehicle has a full interior, handling line and all necessary files.

Grand Theft Auto Online

  • The Clown Van can be selected as a vehicle to race in the Vans class in GTA Online races, however it cannot be saved nor accessed outside races.


  • The default radio stations for the Clown Van are FlyLo FM and Soulwax FM.
  • Unique clown-related sounds may be heard when the van's horn is pressed, when the exhaust backfires, or when crashing.
  • Even though it cannot tow small trailers, a rear hitch can be seen. This was removed in the enhanced version.
  • The "Fiddler the Clown" mentioned on the Clown Van's livery, along with its slogan - "Great with Children" - may be references to pedophilia, with "Fiddler" referencing inappropriate sexual contact.
