The Fortune is a 2-door sedan featured in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas and Grand Theft Auto IV.

Design

GTA San Andreas

The Fortune in GTA San Andreas bears a striking resemblance to a 1989-1993 Ford Thunderbird, standing in as a then-modern American coupe, but featuring a significantly simplified frontal facade.

GTA IV

The GTA IV rendition of the Fortune is manufactured by Vapid; and while the body shape is still based on the 1989-1993 Thunderbird, the front is changed from it's previous rendition, this time featuring a small grille and angled headlights (somewhat like the Uranus from Grand Theft Auto San Andreas), and the taillights have a design that is reminiscent of the Infiniti J30 (1992-1997).

Performance

GTA San Andreas

Acceleration and speed are well above average, but not overly impressive with the front-engine, rear-wheel drivetrain, likely powered by a relatively small V6. Handling is satisfactory, although understeer is evident. The brakes are strong, but the E-brake tends to throw the car into an uncontrollable slide around corners, even at lower speeds. The car pretty much drives like the real Thunderbird from the 1990s even though the car has a V6 or a V8 engine. Even the V8 ones are slow because they are underpowered (140 hp for the 3.8L V6, 215 hp for the 4.6L V8 and 230 for the 5.0L V8) and are very heavy (3700-4100 lbs).

GTA IV

The Fortune 3.0 SR returns with a stock 3.0 V6, coupled to a 5 speed gearbox in a RWD layout. Much of the old performance is retained, keeping acceleration and top speed (155 km/h, 96 mph) marginal but not impressive. Handling also remains good, with understeer still a factor, causing the rear wheels to smoke after sharp turns. Braking is very good, though ABS is not available on this vehicle. Accident deformation is below average, meaning the Fortune will not sustain many hits before being un-drivable. The engine however is more sturdy than the car, and will take multiple hits and gunshots before failing/catching fire.

The car may be sold at S&M Auto Sales for a maximum of $1,600 (in perfect condition) after completion of Stevie's Car Thefts in GTA IV.
