"Oversized, oversexed, overpowered and understeered, this is the car that joined cheap contraception and masturbatory guitar solos to form the unholy trinity of Baby Boom Americana. But before you reach for your vintage jacket and the sepia filter on your Snapmatic, be warned: this old dog has torn the limbs off braver hipsters than you..."
Southern San Andreas Super Autos description.

The Vapid Ellie is a muscle car featured in Grand Theft Auto Online as part of the Southern San Andreas Super Sport Series update, released on March 27th, 2018, during the Ellie and Tezeract Week event.


Grand Theft Auto Online

The Ellie is primarily based on the 1967 Ford Mustang/Shelby GT500, with strong influences from the special, body kitted version of the car named Eleanor from the movie Gone in 60 Seconds. While the Ellie has the GT500's overall body shape, it includes multiple design cues from other Mustangs, such as the front lights of a 1970 Ford Mustang Grande, with the additional fog lights from the GT500. The front bumper's valance is based on that of the 1965 Shelby Mustang GT350R. The rear panel and tail lights are from a 1971 Plymouth Barracuda. The side-vents are inspired by a non-Shelby Mustang from 1967, while the centred rear-exhaust is somewhat loosely based on that of the 1970 Shelby GT500.

The Ellie's headlights draw similarities to the Dominator's headlights, a car which is based on more modern Mustangs. With suspension upgrades, the vehicle's wheels will camber positively slightly.[1]

Grand Theft Auto Online

The Ellie has good performance overall but does not compete with other top muscle cars in the game. It has decent top speed, moderate acceleration and great traction, though it can spin out very easily if turning a corner too hard and its brakes are fairly good, but still not enough to keep up with faster Muscle cars.

The Ellie has all four advanced flags enabled[2]:

  • The first causes up-shifting to occur much sooner, and at lower engine revolutions, effectively shortening shift rates.
  • The second causes the vehicle's engine to heavily over-rev and remain at the engine red-line for a much longer period of time before shifting, causing revolutions to fluctuate.
  • The third increases the vehicle's suspension "springiness", causing it to bounce excessively while driving.
