Design

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 Custom (judging by the 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. It is unusual in that it has front wheel drive (very rare in American cars of the period) and it cannot be blown up with a gas-cap shot like most cars in GTA San Andreas.

Performance

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.
