|Body style||2-door coupe|
|Capacity||2 (driver and 1 passenger)|
|Manufacturer||Declasse (GTA V)|
The Tornado in GTA San Andreas assumes the design of a late-1950s coupe, with signature sweeping curves and tailfins. The front half of the car (and most of the front bumper and grille) and rear window resemble those of a 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air, while the windscreen, sides, back side and bottom half of the front bumper resemble a 1958 Chevrolet Bel Air. The car serves as one of several gang cars for the Los Santos Vagos.
Although the car has appeared in both the first and second trailers for GTA V retaining a similar body design, the car has only been confirmed to be a "Tornado" on an early-2013 game art titled "The Trunk", where the rear end of a late-1950s car with a "Tornado" badge is illustrated.
In the second Grand Theft Auto V trailer.
Having only two doors, the Tornado in GTA San Andreas is only designed to carry two occupants, and as a result, is not a good choice for drive-bys because it lacks the four-seats that many other gang cars have. The car does make up for this deficiency with its above average top speed and acceleration (faster than most four-door lowriders), as well as its generally stable cornering even with its long wheelbase that is supposed to hamper the car's maneuverability. Its low ground clearance, however, clearly makes the car unsuitable for rugged off-roading. The Tornado is also durable and can take a good bit of gunfire and collisions before exploding. Although it does not appear to have a visible fuel cap, it will explode if the back license plate is shot.
GTA San Andreas' Tornado can be modified at a Loco Low Co., which offers a myriad of customizations for the car:
