The Thunder-Rodd is a vehicle which appears in Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories.


Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories

The car is based on a 1938 DeSoto, which has been modified into a hot rod, complete with low ground clearance, wider wheels, a chopped rooftop, flaming paintjob, and a red interior.

The vehicle is wanted by Love Media for their Car-azy Car Give Away.

Performance-wise, the car has great acceleration and a good top speed. However, the car lacks grip, resulting in less responsive cornering (the latter occasionally leads to the car sliding out of control), but compensates with good brakes.
