In GTA Vice City, the Cuban Hermes is black with flames on the front; in GTA Vice City Stories, gray is used in place of black. Both renditions feature additional side exhausts alongside their conventional dual rear exhausts; the GTA Vice City rendition is known to emit flames from these exhausts when accelerating. In addition, the GTA Vice City Stories rendition of the car features wheels positioned further inwards into the wheel wells than those of a conventional Hermes. Although the color of the Cuban Hermes is light blue in GTA: Vice City Stories, you can make it black and similar to the one featured in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City. You can do this by entering the "All Black Cars" cheat.

In Vice City, the Cuban Hermes is black with a flame decal paint job on most of its body. In Vice City Stories, however, the black painted Hermes is absent, with there being light blue and white variants in its place, with slightly different flame decal paint jobs.
