Description

Design

Despite Vapid being GTA's rendition of Ford, the van resembles a 2003-present Chevrolet Express van but the front and back ends have been slightly altered. The badge on the rear reads Vapid ST. The Speedo features various company names, such as Deliver Me Timbers, Easy Lay Carpet, Hello Tailor and Nonna Pina's Restaurant.

Performance

The vehicle is quite agile, thanks to its adapted suspension and weightless rear end. Powersliding is quite easy in this vehicle; however, in Liberty City's hilly terrain the Speedo is prone to bouncing about more frequently than other vehicles of its size. The engine is strong, powered by what feels like a high-torque V8 diesel in a rear-wheel drive layout; leading to acceptable acceleration and a reasonable top speed. Anti-lock brakes are an available option, but are not standard. The Speedo is, the after the Burrito, the second-fastest vehicle in the "van" classification, attaining a maximum of 145mph, but it is the most maneuverable.
