Rockstar Games has released the next major content update for Grand Theft Auto Online on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. Dubbed the ‘Southern San Andreas Super Sport Series,’ this update introduces the new Hotring Series Race Mode with five dedicated vehicles. There will also be more content released in the future as part of the typical drip-feed period that follows each major update in GTA Online.

Spring will be a full season of brand-new racing updates and fresh vehicles – and this article has all the details you need on what’s coming to GTA Online in March, April, and May 2018. The first of two new racing modes is now available with five new cars, and it’s a homage to GTA Vice City’s classic Hotring mixed with the Cunning Stunts of GTA Online.

Race The Hotring Circuit Today In GTA Online

Embrace the intoxicating smell of burnt rubber and premium-grade gasoline of the Southern San Andreas Super Sport Series across 10 stock car races made for the new Declasse Hotring Sabre in GTA Online as you tear it up around a multi-lap track designed for up to 30 adrenaline-addicted maniacs.

Enjoy the new Hotring Circuit today and take advantage of Double GTA$ & RP now through March 26th.

Tear It Up With Five All-New Vehicles Available Now

The latest GTA Online update also features five brand-new vehicles. Hitting the showrooms of Legendary Motorsport and Southern San Andreas Super Autos is a range of new cars your garage will need for the Southern San Andreas Super Sport Series.

‍Put yourself at the mercy of the Taipan, Cheval’s ruthless monument to pure speed and implausible curves.
‍The livery clad Declasse Hotring Sabre is the star of the all new Hotring Circuit. Tune up the engine, drop the suspension, slap your favorite corporate sponsor across the hood and hit the track with up to 29 other adrenaline-addicted maniacs.
‍The all new Entity XXR is a low-slung, pitilessly fast hypercar - now available exclusively from Legendary Motorsport.
‍The Vapid GB200 is a mid-engine, four-wheel, rally-inspired Sports class car ready to be decked out with all manner of customizations.
‍Not your typical family wagon. Embrace the customizable station wagon chic of the Vulcar Fagaloa.

In addition to the aforementioned Hotring Sabre ($830,000), embrace the perfectly refined fury of two new Super cars, the Overflod Entity XXR ($2,305,000) and the Cheval Taipan ($1,1980,000). The Vulcar Fagaloa ($335,000) redefines station wagon chic with a range of customization options from full on wood body paneling to interior trim. And the Sports class series adds the highly customizable, rally-inspired, mid-engine four-wheel drive Vapid GB200 ($940,000). Check out the above image captions for even more details on these all-new cars.

Target Assault Mode Coming April 3rd

Rockstar Games also has more content planned for April, with the release of the Target Assault mode coming April 3rd. It’s a frantic race for up to 8 teams of 2 players each, where Gunners are tasked with destroying targets to score points from a mounted gun, while the Drivers outmanoeuvre the opposition for further points on each lap.

Target Assault is the ultimate playground for wheelmen and sharpshooters alike – demanding the mastery of both.

New Special Vehicle and Transform Races Debut In May

Even more GTA Online content will arrive in May with brand-new Special Vehicle Races and Transform Races. We didn’t say it would be a short drip-feed, folks.

On May 1st, dodge underwater mines, glide over scenic raceways and boost through air gates as you take on 10 unique new Special Vehicle Races featuring the Deluxo, Stromberg and Thruster from The Doomsday Heist. Seven new Transform Races will then make their way to GTA Online on May 29th –featuring a slew of new and classic race vehicles across a fresh batch of challenging courses.

Coming Soon: New Adversary Modes, Vehicles, And Creator Tools

Rockstar Games also has a slate of new Adversary Modes in the works for GTA Online. These will see players head off the track and compete in a more combative territory.

Two brand-new Adversary Modes with rotating double cash opportunities and discounts centered around some of Rockstar’s favourite modes, work, vehicles and more will be featured.

In addition, throughout the weeks and months ahead, look for new offerings from Pegassi, Overflod, Lampadati and more as “a host of new vehicles” hit the showrooms of Los Santos. Expect a total of 11 new additions from this lengthy GTA Online drip-feed.

Rockstar Games are also adding “a heap of new tools and updates” for the Creator coming later this Spring, including more weather options, custom team names and Warp Checkpoints for Transform Races, as well as “a number of other highly-requested features.”
