The Cuban Hermes is a gang variant of the Hermes, appearing in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories.


Grand Theft Auto: Vice City & Vice City Stories

The Cuban Hermes is, as the name suggests, a modified Hermes to look like what appears to be a hot rod. It serves as the gang car for the Cubans/Los Cabrones, and as such, the car is commonly seen in the Cuban gang's territory of Little Havana, Vice City.

In Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, the Cuban Hermes is black with a flame decal paint job on most of its body. In Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, however, the black painted Hermes is absent, with there being light blue and white variants in its place, with slightly different flame decal paint jobs.

The vehicle retains its name "Cuban Hermes" in Vice City Stories despite the Cubans being renamed "Los Cabrones". According to GTA Vice City Stories' game manual, the 1980 Hermes costs $14,500.

Grand Theft Auto: Vice City & Vice City Stories

The Cuban Hermes sports noticeable differences from its non-gang affiliated counterpart, in both appearance and performance. The car's engine emits a different engine noise, similar to a turbocharged vintage V8 engine. All renditions feature additional side exhausts, alongside the conventional dual rear ones. The Grand Theft Auto: Vice City rendition is known to emit flames from these exhausts when accelerating. In Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, however, it features a further modification, with it being the wheels positioned further into the wheel wells than those on the regular or Vice City Cuban Hermes.

It also has higher top speed and acceleration than the regular Hermes and feels somewhat lighter. It has pretty good cornering abilities and stability.

The Cuban Hermes shares its engine sound with several other muscle cars and off-road vehicles, including the Cholo Sabre, Polaris V8, Quad, Slamvan, Hotknife, BF Injection, Cartel Cruiser (in GTA III), Sabre Turbo, Voodoo (in VCS), Sandking and Diablo Stallion.
