Rockstar gives GTA Online players loads of free vehicles in new update

Rockstar Games have pushed out another very generous update in Grand Theft Auto V, which allows GTA Online players to grab four cars for absolutely nothing. Let’s take a look at everything that changed. 

The game’s online community was dealt a slight blow when GTA Online was presented as the series’ first title for next-gen consoles, during Sony’s PlayStation 5 reveal, and ever since there’s been a load of rewards and gifts made available for them to claim.

This week, four vehicles, which are collectively worth just over $800,000 in-game, have been made free to grab – according to Rockstar leaker TezFunz2.

How to get free cars in GTA Online

Vehicles always play a part in these updates and just like any other week a fresh set of wheels has landed on the GTA Diamond Casino podium. The R88 Formula 1 style car has once again rolled onto the platform, and can be won with just one spin of the Lucky Wheel – if fortune is on your side.

The free vehicles, however, include the Raptor, Hakuchou, Nemesis, and Hot Rod Blazer. These can usually be bought at Southern San Andreas Super Autos, but instead of doing a flash sale like other weeks, it looks like the motorcar and motorbike supplier just wants to get rid of them. Each of the offerings can be seen below.

Simply log in, check out their store on the iFruit phone, and redeem them as you please, just like previous free vehicles in GTA Online.


It might not look like a typical GTA car, and that’s because it’s not. The Raptor is all about offroad driving, but it won’t let you down in the city either. A fine acquisition, for free as well.

The Raptor is usually on sale for around $650,000 in-game.


The next one is a bike, but a fine one at that. With a few upgrades here, you’ll be speeding around in one of the best handling vehicles around.

The Shitzu Hakuchou is worth over $80,000 in GTA V.


Next is the Nemesis, and it’s really, really worth that much in all honesty. Just over the 10 grand mark, to be exact, but it’s still a freebie so no questions asked!

The Nemesis is only worth $12,000 usually.

Hot Rod Blazer

Last, and certainly not least, is the Hot Rod Blazer! This thing might look utterly hilarious, but it doesn’t come cheap. Actually, it does – $69,000. Don’t drive too fast around corners would be our advice…

Take your Hot Rod Blazer to Los Santos Customs – because you can do some funny things with it.

GTA Online June 18 update: What’s changed?

Aside from the free vehicles, Rockstar have also thrown in a few other bits and pieces for players – including a free Coil USA t-shirt.

Associate and Bodyguard Salary missions have had their rewards tripled, both cash and RP, and those of Parachuting have been granted the same. Open Wheel Races, VIP Work, and challenges have also been boosted with double rewards. Speaking of races, the Premium Race is the Senora Freeway, Time Trial will be Power Station, and RC Time Trial will be Little Seoul Park for the next week.

GTA Online Black Friday update: Huge sales, Open Wheel bonuses, more

Rockstar Games have got a Grand Theft Auto Online update that plays into Black Friday with a whole host of sales for vehicles, businesses, and buildings. 

GTA Online’s weekly updates are always something to look forward to for fans, as Rockstar Games rolls out some bonuses so that players can build up their Maze Bank accounts. 

The bonuses, both for cash and RP, are the big attention grabbers from the updates, but the sales that Rockstar also drops are nothing to be ignored either. You can save quite a lot on a car that you want or a business you want to own. 

With Black Friday getting underway in the real world – marking a few days of sales – Rockstar have also joined in the fun with some pretty interesting discounts as well. 

Open Wheel races bonuses – 2x Cash & RP

As already noted, the bonuses are the biggest part of the weekly updates, so we’ll start there. This week, starting November 26, is all about Open Wheel Races for double rewards while King of the Hill pays out triple. 

The bonuses for Open Wheel races are not limited to one or two select tracks, but you will have to jump into a Rockstar Created race to earn the bonus. The best way to check this is to simply join a race from the pink F1 car icons that are dotted around the map.

If a lobby then decides to vote for a non-Rockstar Created race, simply back out and find a different lobby. You’ll have up to December 9th to earn the bonus rewards.
