“Creators will also get the chance to craft their own Races for these vehicles, so expect loads of insane Voltic, Ruiner and Blazer mayhem from the community this spring,” a message from the development team reads.
“Every update to GTA Online comes with a vast litany of under-the-hood tweaks, enhancements and improvements that are a direct result of feedback from the GTA Online community, so please keep on sending your suggestions and input via the GTA Online feedback page.
“We’re also continuously advancing our anti-cheat tools in pursuit of bad apples; if you attempt to cheat or modify GTA Online in any way, you will be detected, suspended and be subject to a character wipe so it’s always best to stay on the right side and help keep the playing field fair and fun for everyone.
The new Special Vehicle races DLC is tailored to specific vehicles and will require their own new set of skills and tactics to win.
20 new Stunt Races custom built for the Rocket Voltic, Ruiner 2000 & Blazer Aqua in new GTA 5 Online update – Cunning Stunts: Special Vehicle Circuit.
Designed with each of these vehicles’ unique characteristics and abilities in mind, this collection of Stunt Races will be the first new DLC launched since February.
Rockstar have also confirmed that Legendary Motorsport will also be adding the classically-styled Progen GP1 to its formidable roster of supercars.
The studio confirmed earlier this month that a series of new vehicles would be added to the game, ahead of the big summer releases being planned.
While these new rides will likely not be the weaponised vehicles that have been teased for launch, they will instead be part of a series that have been most-requested by fans.
This means that cars that have been featured in past games will finally make their debut in Grand Theft Auto 5.
Away from the new races and fresh car to buy, new GTA Online bonuses will be kicking off this weekend and running through Monday, March 13th (on top of ongoing specials including Double GTA$ & RP Stunt Races).
