The main body of the Dominator seems to be heavily inspired by the [[wp:Ford Mustang (fifth generation)|fifth generation Ford Mustang]], with flared wheel arches, connected to the elevated area that spans the lower body. The front headlight pockets are taken from the fifth generation Mustang, with the circular headlights, squared grille and hood being skewed forwards and down.
altough this new muscle car seems to have taken design cues from a [[wp:Ford_Mustang_(fifth_generation)|2004 Ford Mustang]] and a [[wp:Ford_Mustang_(first_generation)#1969.E2.80.931970|1969 Ford Mustang (first generation)]].
 
   
The lower area of the main body of the car seems to belong to the [[wp:Ford_Mustang_(fifth_generation)|2004 Ford Mustang]], and features flared wheel arches which are connected to the elevated area that spans the lower body. Halfway up the body, the main body line is straight and marks a sharp change between lower body and upper body. The greenhouse however alludes to the design of a third generation Mustang, featuring similar styling to the "sportsroof", but with a shorter length. The short C-pillar combines with the main body and forms a small platform just behind the rear windscreen. The wheels appear to be inspired by the classic wheels used on early generations of Mustang, but have seven spokes as opposed to the original five.

Halfway up the body, the main body line makes a sharp angular turn, signaling the classical inspiration of the first generation Mustang. The car features twelve spoke alloy wheels, wrapped in low profile tires.
   
The rear lights are derived straight from a [[wp:Ford_Mustang_(first_generation)|1969 Ford Mustang]]. Being composed of three chrome-trimmed vertical strips which are red. The rear lights are placed on an impressed area between the rear wing and rear bumper. The rear bumper features circular exhaust tips with a chrome finish.

The rear hatch closely resembles a fastback design, also taken from the first generation Mustang. The front grille design, rear fascia and taillights and are derived straight from the [[wp:Ford Mustang (first generation)|1970 Ford Mustang]] fastback. The rear lights are placed on an impressed area between the rear spoiler and rear bumper which resembles the [[wikipedia:Ford_Mustang_(fourth_generation)|forth generation Mustang (New Edge 1999-2004)]]. The rear bumper features circular twin-exit exhaust with chrome tips.

===''Grand Theft Auto V''===
  +
The Dominator features a front engine, [[Drivetrains in GTA V|rear wheel drive]] layout. The car also features a high torque V8 engine, which gives it decent acceleration and an above average top speed. It is one of the fastest Muscle cars in a straight line because of its impressive torque, but this is also the Dominator's major flaw, as the raw power the engine supplies makes the car very difficult to control in corners. It has a tendency to engage in bouts of immense oversteer and fishtailing on certain corners, and that makes the Dominator overall a fairly tricky car to drive. Crash deformation is average, able to take a decent amount of head-on hits at speed before smoking or being disabled.
   
===Overview===
+
While its severe handling issues may make it a bad choice for inexperienced drivers, the Dominator can reward those who take the time to learn its driving style by being a very good car for racing, with only a select few amount of other Muscles able to keep up.

"Baby boomer teen dream repackaged for the mass market generation. A muscle car without the muscle that's the rental vehicle of choice for tourists looking for a slice of 'real' Americana."
Southernsanandreassuperautos.com description

The Vapid Dominator is two-door muscle car featured in Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online.

Design Edit

The main body of the Dominator seems to be heavily inspired by the fifth generation Ford Mustang, with flared wheel arches, connected to the elevated area that spans the lower body. The front headlight pockets are taken from the fifth generation Mustang, with the circular headlights, squared grille and hood being skewed forwards and down.

Halfway up the body, the main body line makes a sharp angular turn, signaling the classical inspiration of the first generation Mustang. The car features twelve spoke alloy wheels, wrapped in low profile tires.

The rear hatch closely resembles a fastback design, also taken from the first generation Mustang. The front grille design, rear fascia and taillights and are derived straight from the 1970 Ford Mustang fastback. The rear lights are placed on an impressed area between the rear spoiler and rear bumper which resembles the forth generation Mustang (New Edge 1999-2004). The rear bumper features circular twin-exit exhaust with chrome tips.

Grand Theft Auto VEdit

Grand Theft Auto OnlineEdit

  • Commonly spawns when requested by Simeon.
  • Can be bought from Southern San Andreas Super Autos as of patch 1.13.
  • Spawns commonly in Pillbox Hill if driving another muscle car.
  • When you play Cops Capacity from Lester Crest there's a pre-modified, armoured yellow Dominator provided at his warehouse; however, the ability to keep vehicles obtained during missions (other than vehicles spawned at any LSC during mission times) has subsequently been patched and players will no longer be able to store this vehicle.

Trivia Edit

  • The Dominator is one of the first modern pony cars to appear in the Grand Theft Auto series. The others are the Vapid Hellenbach and the Bravado Gauntlet.
  • The car's beta name was "Bullett", as shown by Los Santos Customs' Lifeinvader page. This would have been a clear reference to the 1968 film Bullitt, which features a legendary chase around San Francisco that sees Steve McQueen pursuing villains in his Ford Mustang GT; in 2008, Ford released a special Bullitt edition of the fifth generation Mustang, on which the Dominator is based, in homage to the movie. The name was likely changed because there is already a car named Bullet.
  • When in first person view, a dial can be seen on the far right of the dashboard labeled "BLOWER". When the car is left stock, this dial will not move. However, when a turbocharger is installed it will move when the throttle is pressed, and will drop when it is released, indicating a change in PSI. This is featured in every car with this type of interior.
    • This is technically wrong since a "blower" is a nickname for a supercharger, not a turbocharger.
  • The Dominator is one of the few vehicles which may spawn with chrome, this being the racing stripe that runs along the the hood of the Dominator.
    • The Banshee is another car that can rarely spawn with chrome as a secondary color like the Dominator.
  • The default radio stations of the Dominator are:

  • The car bears a wing-shaped flag logo (which Imponte uses on some of their vehicles), which is very similar to that of the Corvette wing logo.
  • The number on the Pißwasser version of the Dominator, 41, is a reference to the classic arcade racing game Daytona USA, which is known as the Daytona Hornet, a car resembling as the 1994 Chevrolet Lumina stock car.
  • The online description of the car refers to the four-cylinder and V6 versions of the Mustang commonly found in rental fleets. However, the Dominator is based on the V8-powered "consumer" Mustang.
