The Hermes is a customized late '40s; early '50s 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 visibility. The Hermes is based on a 1949/1950 Mercury Eight (judging by the body and taillights), the car is evidently modified with its roof chopped down, enhancing the vehicle's lead sled-like appearance; compared to the '49 and '50 Mercuries, it has an additional pair of taillights. The car's taillights also resemble to the ones of a Fiat Brava SX.


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 size, small tires and front wheel drive. In GTA San Andreas the brakes are extremely inefficient and are amongst the worst in the game, in the hands of an experienced player however it can be a good getaway car. As it only has two doors, the Hermes can only seat two, making it unsuitable for drive-bys.


In GTA Vice City and GTA Vice City Stories, a modified gang version of the car driven by the Cubans, dubbed the Cuban Hermes, is commonly spotted in Little Havana, Vice City.
