GTA San Andreas
GTA IVFor GTA IV, Vincent largely resembles a 1999-2003 Mitsubishi Galant, with the nose being a prominent resemblance, while the rear of the car may be influenced by the BMW 8 Series. This rendition of the Vincent is somewhat reminiscent of the GTA San Andreas Sentinel, particularly the areas surrounding the headlamps/corner lamps.
There are two variants of the Vincent in GTA IV: the standard model, and the LX2007 version, a sportier version that features a hood scoop, small spoiler and side skirts. There is no performance difference between the two models, the changes being purely cosmetic. The Vincent in GTA IV is manufactured by the Maibatsu Corporation.
GTA San Andreas
Acceleration and speed are acceptable, but unimpressive. The throaty engine sounds like a V6 and delivers sufficient torque, but this is unfortunately wasted on the front-wheel drivetrain. Handling could do better, and the car suffers from slight understeer, but the brakes are very good. The overall performance of the car is inferior to that of the Sentinel, which is also based on another BMW model. However, the Vincent is relatively well-constructed, enabling it to withstand a fair amount of damage.
Acceleration and top speed 170 mph (275 km/h) are acceptable but unimpressive, in line with the "everyday sedan" design of the Vincent. Gone is the FWD layout, in favor of a 40% Rear, 60% Front 4WD layout, coupled to a much more effective 5-speed gearbox. While the Vincent is handsome and has the potential to be quick, its usefulness is severely undermined by its poor brakes—stopping distances from top speed are roughly 1-1.5 city blocks, putting the Vincent's brakes among the least powerful in the game. Although it is equipped with Maibatsu's unique "sort-of-anti-lock" braking system, there is simply too much front wheel lockup, which, combined with the heaviness of the chassis, causes enormous understeer. Handling, however, has been upgraded in this rendition of the Vincent, feeling firm and gripping the road. Body roll is minimal, and, thanks to its 4WD drivetrain, the Vincent feels much more confident in the turns at conventional speeds (at high speeds it feels wayward and will almost always fishtail) and can powerslide well. Crash deformation is acceptable, and build quality seems to be on-par with the median of the class; in all, the Vincent is a good car for cruising at low speed, or for thrilling, dangerous driving at top speed, making it a perfect addition to a parking space. It is one of the most well rounded vehicles in the game, but not the best.

- In GTA San Andreas, Mafia hitmen will be sent to kill Carl Johnson if he has gambling debts and is in Las Venturas. The Vincents they drive have unique dark grayish-blue colors.
- A black Vincent is available for the player to use to pick Sweet Johnson up in the mission Home Coming. This Vincent can be stored after the mission.
- Although there are no gang variants, with the exception of the one stated above as it is presumably owned by the McReary Mob, there is one more rare variant. It is a black Vincent with increased acceleration due to the addition of a turbocharger (evidenced by the hiss similar to that of the Sultan RS when shifting). It can be found driving around Broker. One that is more common is the base model Vincent with gold rims (with the outer rim the default chrome, like all wheel variants) and there is the much rarer Vincent LX2007 in a dark candy red with black rims. It is unknown if this is a bug, glitch or an actual variant. It is so far only found on the Xbox 360 version and only found after the She's a Keeper where the player gets the unique green Vincent used by the McReary Mob (UPDATE: The player can respray it via Pay n' Spray on the Xbox 360 and the PS3. Unconfirmed for PC).
