The game's developers often introduce new features for fans to play around with in Los Santos on a weekly basis and this week is no different. 

Not only has the previously leaked Progen Emerus vehicle appeared in the Legendary Motorsport online store, but GTA Online players that set up Time Trials are going to be able to get their hands on a lot more cash in the near future. 

If you want to drive around in a Progen Emerus in GTA Online, it's going to cost you $2,750,000. Anyway, let's take a look at what else has been added.

Change to Time Trials in GTA Online

The patch notes, posted on Rockstar's website, announced that a set of RC Time Trials will be added and to celebrate, fans will be given some huge bonuses for completing them. 

The payout of all Time Trial missions were bumped up with the arrival of the Diamond Casino and Resort patch, increasing from $50,000 to $100,000 and for a limited time only, that will be doubled again to $200,000 for RC related trials - making these a huge money making opportunity. 

An RC Time Trial corona has appeared on the map to show players where to go to start them, but that's not all.

The other prizes available to take home from just one spin remain unchanged, included lump sums of cash, cosmetics, and much more that can be found using our Lucky Wheel prize guide.
