|Vehicle type||Civilian car|
|Body style||2-door coupe|
|Capacity||2 (driver and passenger)|
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.
The car's performance could be described as average; its acceleration is underwhelming, but it has a moderate top speed. The car is also prone to understeer, owing to its size and small tires. As it only has two doors, the Hermes can only seat two.
Customization in GTA San Andreas
The Hermes can be modified at a TransFender, but is only offered a bare minimum of modification options:
Italicized pricing denotes prices at the Las Venturas TransFender, which charges 20% more except Colors.
