They don't make 'em like they used to. Which is why Vapid designed the retro-classic Bullet based on the racing cars of the 1960s, back when nobody gave a crap about carbon footprints or the Ozone layer.
Official legendarymotorsport.net description, GTA V.
The Vapid Bullet is a supercar in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, The Ballad of Gay Tony, Grand Theft Auto V, and Grand Theft Auto Online. In The Ballad of Gay Tony, it is referred to as the Bullet GT.
- GTA San Andreas
The Bullet's shape closely resembles a first-generation Ford GT, making the car an anachronism; the GT wasn't introduced until 2005, 13 years after the game's events in 1992. The Ford GT40 was used as a racecar in the 1960s, but bears less of a resemblance to the Bullet. In a pre-release screenshot of GTA San Andreas, the Bullet is seen with a double stripe and a different hood, identical to that on the real Ford GT; the beta model is also portrayed in some renderings inside of Otto's Autos, a showroom in Downtown San Fierro. The change to a single stripe in the actual game may have been aimed at avoiding a blatantly obvious design influence from a car that wouldn't exist for another 13 years. Also, the Bullet uses a conventional door design, unlike the real life Ford GT's "aircraft door" design.

In The Ballad of Gay Tony, the Vapid Bullet (known as the Bullet GT) still resembles the Ford GT, borrowing design cues like the waterfall hood scoop and body shape. The rear end, while similar to that of the Ford GT, also appears to be an amalgamation of various supercars' rear ends, including the ONUK Sazan LM, Nissan Skyline GT-R (R34), Ferrari 330 P4 (to a limited extent), and Lucra L148; however, the former and latter are just coincidences as the ONUK Sazan LM and Lucra L148 weren't conceptualized until 2010 and 2014, respectively. The louvers over the rear windscreen and positioning of the exhaust tips are more similar to those featured on the Lamborghini Miura, while the plush interior, which features sport bucket seats finished in tan leather, is derived from the Grotti Turismo. The main body stripe no longer exists; however, the side stripes still exist.
Much like various newly designed cars in TBOGT, the Bullet GT lacks external badging indicating its manufacturer; however, police chatter refers to the car as a "Vapid Bullet GT" in the same vein as the Ford GT.
The GTA V rendition of the Bullet, now simply known as the Bullet, remains virtually the same as the TBOGT rendition.

0-60 mph acceleration, speed, handling, and braking are among the best in the game. The only real sacrifice is susceptibility to intense damage upon impact, especially at the excessive speeds the vehicle is capable of reaching. The vehicle is mid-engine, and has a rear-drive layout. A closer look at the engine shows six injector trumpets, suggesting that the engine is actually a low-revving V6 instead of a V8. The Bullet's in-game engine sound is shared with the Oceanic, Glendale (both variants), and the Tornado; the horn sound is the same as the Windsor, Flash, and Pony.
In The Ballad of Gay Tony, the Bullet GT is powered by the Turismo's engine, as proven by a "Turismo" logo on the engine cover; the engine is a modified 4.0 L DOHC quad-cam V8. The Bullet has a top speed of 220 mph (354 km/h), much faster than the real-life Ford GT. The Bullet has a neutral handling set up and is extremely balanced; plus, it is also fairly durable compared with other super cars, especially the fragile Comet. In contrary to all these high quality aspects, the high-revving can sometimes cause the car to lose control when turning or beginning to drive which usually can become a disadvantage in events such as racing. To prevent this, the car is normally driven with caution in mind.
In GTA V, the Bullet's performance remains virtually unchanged from its TBOGT rendition, but, with a top speed of 210 mph (338 km/h) (shared with the Turismo R), is only faster than the Voltic, the slowest supercar in the game. As such, the Bullet is more comparable to "Sports" class cars rather than "Super" class cars. The reduction in top speed meant the Bullet was made to be closer to the Ford GT in performance. It also has a 6.0 L 550 hp V8, according to legendarymotorsport.net. However, upon closer inspection of the engine, the Bullet's engine size is actually 5.6 L.
