GTA Online has plenty of different cars and vehicles on offers, but really, everyone just wants to go fast. So, we’ve put together a list of the fastest cars and motorcycles in the game.

In the near-decade-long history of GTA Online, Rockstar Games have filled the multiplayer title with plenty of new content – with most of this coming in the form of new vehicles and races to use them in.

You’ve got a wide variety to choose from in Los Santos. You could go for something that simply looks cool like the Cheval Taipan, something that’s got the classic swag like the Coquette Classic, or something as unique as the Truffade Z-Type.

At the end of the day, most players just want to go fast. Be that to outrun the police, other players, or to win races, speeding through the streets of Los Santos is a lot of fun. But what is the fastest? Well, we’ve got the answer.

5 fastest cars in GTA Online

Now, you’d be forgiven for thinking right away that the Formula 1-style cars – the Ocelot R88 and Progen PR4 – are the fastest. Technically, they’re not. They will give you the fastest lap time in Open Wheel races, but that’s it.

On the road, the fastest car is actually the Ocelot Pariah. The $1,420,000 sports car has a record top speed of 136 mph/218.87 kph following YouTuber Broughy1322’s straight-line speed test. 

After that, you’ve got the Pfister 811 which has been clocked at 132.5 mph, and then the Principe Deveste Eight which has recorded a top speed of 131.75 mph. The Bravado Banshee 900R and Invetero Coquette D10 round of the top 5. 

  1. Ocelot Pariah – 136 mph
  2. Pfister 811 – 132.5 mph
  3. Principe Deveste Eight – 131.75 mph 
  4. Bravado Banshee 900R – 131 mph
  5. Invetero Coquette D10 – 130 mph

Fastest bikes in GTA Online

If cars aren’t your thing, and you want a motorcycle, well Grand Theft Auto Online has got plenty of those as well.

The fastest of which, again according to Broughy1322’s test, is the Western Deathbike with its 150 mph record top speed. Three of the top five are all Pegassi bikes – the original Oppressor, Bati 801, and Bati 801RR. There’s also the Nagasaki BF400 which has clocked a whopping 137 mph.

  1. Western Deathbike (Arena) – 150 mph
  2. Pegassi Oppressor – 140 mph
  3. Nagaski BF400 – 137 mph
  4. Pegassi Bati 801 – 135 mph
  5. Pegassi Bati 801RR – 135 mph

The Western Deathbike might not look fast, but it is.

At the end of the day, you can upgrade vehicles and max out their top speeds, but they aren’t going to burn these 10 in a straight-line race. 

So, make sure to check out the Southern San Andreas Super Autos and Legendary Motorsports stores in GTA Online to get your hands on them.

Overwatch

Sailor Moon x Disney crossover Overwatch skin is the perfect fit for Mercy

One dedicated Overwatch fan and Mercy stan has come up with an awesomely creative skin design for the hero that mixes Sailor Moon and the Disney classic Snow White all into one.

Concepts for fairytale skins have been a favorite of Overwatch players almost since the game was introduced. While there are even a few oficial ones in Overwatch now (like Red Riding Hood Ashe and Dragon Mercy), there’s no way Blizzard would be able to keep up with all the ideas floating around out there.

That hasn’t stopped the artistically talented fans among us from adding on to that pile though, and one of the best we’ve seen lately is from artist u/aerisycloud. Their creation combines not not only Disney’s Snow White, but also everyone’s favorite Guardian of Earth, Sailor Moon, into a Mercy skin that fits the hero just perfectly.

A skin that might even give Mercy’s pink skin a run for its money in popularity.

This skin would be one of the few that recasts Mercy as a brunette, obviously a nod to Snow White. The colors and materials are also reminiscent of the fairy tale, but the cut and boots are practically common-issue for the Sailor Scouts.

Her Cadecus Pistol and Staff, along with her wings, are now solid gold (whether this is with or without 3000 CP is unknown), which would also pass in an instant for accessories that Sailor Moon would rock.

We love seeing these kinds of skin concepts, especially ones as cool as this, but it can be easy to forget how much time and effort goes into each one. To show us how much work it took, along with the finished product, aerisycloud also posted a time-lapse of their creation – which is worth watching in its own right.

If this skin were to be made, it’d also be neat to see a Torbjorn skin featuring him as one of the Seven Dwarfs (Grumpy, preferably), and a voice clip along the lines of “Moon healing… escalation!” as a nod towards the anime.

As far as actual in-game skins go, you can currently unlock the new Kyogisha Hanzo skin until January 25, and the 2021 Lunar New Year event — which brings a ton of new skins with it — should get going shortly after that wraps up.
