If you’re looking for some classic GTA Online action with street
racing carnage and surprising fun, as well as the cinematic editing-style you
can come to expect from Tom Matthews, then this is the video for you. It’s

improved cars that have been added in recent times.
Check out the video for yourself above for the street races,
