The Hermes is a customized late 1940's coupe available in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories.


The Hermes, appearing as a two-door coupe, is distinguishable by its large body, but seemingly small occupant's visibility. The Hermes is based on a 1949 Mercury Eight , but the car has been evidently modified, with its roof chopped and has an additional pair of taillights. The car's taillights also resemble the ones of a Fiat Brava.

The car's performance could be described as average; its acceleration is underwhelming, but it has a moderate top speed. It is unusual in that it has front wheel drive (very rare in American cars of the period) and it can't be blown up with a gas-tank shot like most cars in GTA San Andreas. The car is also prone to understeer, owing to its large size, small tires and front wheel drive. In GTA San Andreas the brakes are extremely inefficient and are among the worst in the game, but in the hands of an experienced player the vehicle may be used for drifting. As it only has two doors, the Hermes can only seat two, making it unsuitable for drive-bys.

In Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, there is a modified gang variant of the car driven by the Cubans, dubbed the Cuban Hermes.


In Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, the Hermes is commonly seen around Vice City. In Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, the Hermes is mostly a gang car for the Los Santos Vagos and the Varrios Los Aztecas, and as such, it can be seen on their respective turfs.
