Claude Speed is the farting, burping, Elvis killing, sociopathic manipulator from GTA2. Claude is the psycho mute from III with a badass leather jacket. I remember people used to say that Claude's (3) surname isn't actually Speed, and people get it confused because of the actual Claude Speed from 2. But I see quite a few posts that just calls him Claude Speed. So, is that really his last name?

Yes he is Claude Speed. It is the same character expressed in two different story universes. If you've seen the live action promo video for 2 you will notice Claude's appearance in III was heavily inspired by the appearance of the actor playing Claude.

 

 

Rockstar also used to have a quiz on Facebook 'Which GTA Character Are You?' which confirmed his full name to be Claude Speed if you got him as a result.

 

Link to the newswire story about the quiz (which no longer exists): http://www.rockstarg...or-faceboo.html

 

You can still see the artwork on the wiki here:

Hope that helps.

Nothing is known about Claude's life before 1992, other than he had emerged as a top contender in an illegal racing ring and owned an abandoned garage in DohertySan Fierro. Rockstar however states that Claude is: "Definitely a drifter, probably from the west coast, new to Liberty City " (and his) "surname may or may not be Speed".

 

 

Who is the guy playing Claude in the video ?

I just call him Claude. What kind of surname is “Speed”? I’ve always hated it.

Scott Maslen played Claude. Check him out.

It's a play on 'God speed'.
