First GTA Online update since Summer Special revealed – patch notes

Another content update has rolled out in Grand Theft Auto V, following the Summer Special, adding a boat load of new discounts and cash reward bonuses to GTA Online. 

This one might not be as exciting as the actual Summer Update, which landed the week prior, but that was hard to top. Rockstar Games added over a dozen fresh cars across its multiple in-game iFruit stores, meaning members of the community have been riding around in new whips ever since.


We can’t have an update of that size every week, though there’s still some exciting changes to talk about.

There’s a lot to unpack, so let’s jump right into the early patch notes – courtesy of GTA leaker TezFunz2.


GTA Online August 20 update patch notes

Lucky Wheel

Pfister GTA Online
Rockstar Games
This new set of wheels has landed in GTA Lucky Wheel rewards.

There’s always a high priced car on the Lucky Wheel rewards podium. This can be found inside the Diamond Casino, and will feature on it a Pfister 811.

The car usually sells for around $1.13 million in-game, but you could be driving it out of the map’s biggest gambling centre absolutely free of charge, with the right spin.

Featured missions and races

If you own a Super Yacht in GTA Online, you’re going to have a great summer.

YouTuber and presenter Supercar Blondie is one of the best-known car YouTubers out there. Now, she has smashed all previous records and broken an important Facebook milestone.

With a cool 4.65 million subscribers on her YouTube channel alone, Supercar Blondie has made a name for herself as one of YouTube’s best automotive content creators.


Earlier in 2020, SB made headlines after amassing an incredible number of Facebook views, reaching over one billion views in the month of August alone.

Now, it seems that the ‘Supercar Blondie Family’ is only set to grow even bigger, after an incredible announcement via her YouTube channel and Instagram feeds.

Supercar Blondie hits 30 million Facebook followers

In spite of her massive following on YouTube, her biggest audience is actually on Facebook.

With her incredible viewing figures for August 2020 still at the forefront of her mind, Blondie has revealed another exciting piece of news in the development of her brand. As of October 6, 2020, she now has over 30 million followers on her Facebook page.

“Wow wow wow! If you follow me on Facebook as well, thank you! The Supercar Blondie family just grew to 30 million! Insta fam next. Much love guys; Come join us and see why we get a billion views a month!”


Clearly not content with hitting a cool 30 million Facebook followers, she states that it’s the “Insta fam next.”

Blondie still has a long way to go on her Instagram page, however, as it currently sits at around seven million followers. Impressive, but that’s a whopping 23 million behind her Facebook page, so it might take a while to catch up.

With her recent successes — including being crowned the richest car influencer on YouTube — it’s been one heck of a year for Supercar Blondie. We can’t wait to see what she has in store for the remaining months of 2020.
