Let's get started with the new vehicles coming to Grand Theft Auto Online immediately. First, we've got the Vapid GB200, a rally-inspired sports car. Next is the Entity XXR, exclusive to Legendary Motorsport. Third is the Declasse Hotring Sabre, dubbed the star of the new Hotring Circuit mode. The Cheval Taipan rounds out the newest GTA Online Super cars. But the last vehicle being added this time around is the Vulcar Fagaloa, a station wagon with all kinds of customization options.
Moving on, we've got the brand new racing mode: Hotring Circuit. This is meant to emulate the American tradition, and popularity, of stock car racing. The Hotring Sabre will blast around the track in 10 different races. Anyone who participates in this mode between now and March 26, 2018 will get double RP and GTA$.
That's it for the new stuff arriving to GTA Online today, but patient players will be happy to hear about an additional mode coming April 3. This one's called Target Assault and pits eight teams of two players against each other. There's a gunner who stands in the bed of the truck and mans a mounted gun in order to hit targets to score points. The driver has to stay ahead of the pack and help their gunner get as many points as possible.
The Premium Race this time around is called “Threading the Needle” and can be activated via your in-game phone in the Quick Job App or through the yellow corona in Legion Square. The newest GTA Online Time Trial is “Down Chiliad” and is activated via the purple corona, which you can set a waypoint to through your in-game map.
