The Vapid Fortune is a 2-door coupe featured in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas and Grand Theft Auto IV.


GTA San Andreas

The Fortune bears a striking resemblance to a 1989-1993 Ford Thunderbird.


The GTA IV rendition of the Fortune is manufactured by Vapid; and while the body shape is still based on the 1989-1993 Thunderbird, the front seems more generic (somewhat like the Uranus from GTA San Andreas) and the taillights have a design that is reminiscent of the 97-98 Lincoln VIII, which is based on the Thunderbird.

Acceleration and speed are well above average, but not overly impressive with the front-engine, rear-wheel drivetrain, likely powered by a relatively small V6. Handling is satisfactory, although understeer is evident. The brakes are strong, but the E-brake tends to throw the car into an uncontrollable slide around corners, even at lower speeds. The car pretty much drives like the real Thunderbird from the 1990s. Even the V8 ones are slow because they are underpowered (140 hp for the 3.8L V6, 215 hp for the 4.6L V8 and 230 for the 5.0L V8) and are very heavy (3700-4100 lbs).


The Fortune 3.0 SR returns with a stock 3.0 V6, coupled to a 5 speed gearbox in an FR drivetrain layout. Much of the old

performance is retained, keeping acceleration and a new top speed of 183 mph. Due to the Fortune's 4-wheel independent suspension, handling also remains good. Oversteer is still a factor, causing the rear wheels to smoke after sharp turns. Braking is very good, though ABS is not available on this vehicle. Accident deformation is below average, meaning the Fortune will not sustain many hits before being un-drivable. The engine however is more sturdy than the car, and will take multiple hits and gunshots before failing/catching fire.

The car may be sold at S&M Auto Sales for a maximum of $1,600 (in perfect condition) after completion of Stevie's Car Thefts in GTA IV.
