Grand Theft Auto Online is back again with another update this week, this time adding the new Benefactor SM722 for purchase from Legendary Motorsport. A “lean, mean” modern open-top roadster, the Benefactor SM722 is suitably speedy, and available now. There are numerous other automotive bonuses this week, too.
These include the opening of Simeon's Premium Deluxe Motorsport Showroom, with five featured vehicles available to test drive or purchase. There's the classic black Benefactor Dubsta with a unique trim, a Cheval Picador with a Matte Light Grey paint job and Pinstripes livery, the Albany Hermes in Classic Blue with matching Blue Flames livery (which is also 40% off this week), the Bravado Gauntlet Hellfire in Pearlescent Garnet Red with a Too Much Free Time livery, and a Classic Harbor Blue Maibatsu Penumbra FF in the Sakura Tree livery.
At the new Luxury Autos Showroom, you can also bag a high-end ride, with a pair of new cars for purchase each week, with the latest set offering the Grotti Itali GTO and Metallic Ice White Obey Omnis e-GT. Hao's Special Works also has a new Premium Test Ride in the Shitzu Hakuchou Drag motorcycle, as well as a new HSW Time Trial route between Sandy Shores and La Puerta, available only to Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5 players.
There's 3x GTA$ and RP on The Vespucci Job (Remix) all this week, while completing Bunker Resupply Missions through Disruption Logistics will grant double Supplies. Complete a Bunker Ammu-Nation Contract or Bunker Research Mission, and you can get a GTA$200K bonus delivered within 72 hours. Should you beat a Bunker Research Mission from Agent 14, you can also get twice the research data from the Avon Robot and Armored Target to put towards your next project.
A pair of free White Beat Off Earphones can also be yours for completing any Gunrunning, Nightclub Warehouse, MC, or Special Cargo Sell Mission during the ensuing seven days, and you can now carry out Sell Missions in private, Invite Only sessions. Air Force Zero, Keep the Pace, Juggernaut, and Stockpile are also back in GTA Online this week.
As ever, there are new rides at the LS Car Meet, too, with the Maxwell Asbo, Dewbauchee Rapid GT Classic, and BF Weevil available to thrash around the Test Track, and placing top three in the Pursuit Series for three consecutive days will earn the Truffade Adder Prize Ride. As for the Lucky Wheel star prize at The Diamond Casino & Resort: this time it's the vintage Enus Stafford sedan.
GTA+ members can also get a Lapadati Corsita Sports Car, Executive Office Upgrades, free clothing and accessories, 50% Bonus GTA$ and RP on Operation Paper Trail missions, and other member bonuses until 31st August. All players can also take advantage of the following discounts in GTA Online this week:
Finally, any Prime Gaming members with connected Rockstar Games Social Club accounts can get GTA$125K just for logging and playing this week. All of this is available now in Grand Theft Auto Online.
