'Grand Theft Auto Online' Adds Benefactor SM722 Speedster, Showrooms, GTA+ Benefits, Bonuses And More

by Rainier on Aug. 4, 2022 @ 10:18 a.m. PDT

Set in the sprawling city of Los Santos and the surrounding area, Grand Theft Auto V delivers a world of unprecedented scale and detail bursting with life, from mountaintops to the depths of the ocean.

When a young street hustler, a retired bank robber and a terrifying psychopath find themselves entangled with some of the most frightening and deranged elements of the criminal underworld, the U.S. government and the entertainment industry, they must pull off a series of dangerous heists to survive in a ruthless city in which they can trust nobody, least of all each other.

Switch between the interconnected lives of Michael, Trevor and Franklin as they embark on a series of heists across Los Santos and Blaine County in the biggest, deepest and richest open world experience yet, with game world enhancements that include new wildlife, upgraded weather and damage effects, and an array of new details to discover.

Grand Theft Auto V also comes with Grand Theft Auto Online, the dynamic and ever-evolving online universe for up to 30 players, and includes all existing gameplay upgrades and content released since the launch of Grand Theft Auto Online.

Rise through the ranks to become a CEO of your own criminal empire by trading contraband or form a Motorcycle Club and rule the streets. Pull off daring co-operative Heists, enter adrenaline-fueled Stunt Races, compete in unique Adversary Modes or create your own content to play and share with the entire GTA community.

New additions to GTA Online continue to roll out as part of last week’s launch of The Criminal Enterprises, as players can now enter Simeon Yetarian’s Premium Deluxe Motorsport Showroom to view, test drive, and purchase vehicles straight off the showroom floor.

Introducing The Benefactor SM722 Sports Speedster

The designers and engineers at Benefactor HQ whittled away all the unnecessary components of the modern roadster, leaving the lean, mean, open-top silhouette of the Benefactor SM722. There is plenty of scientific jargon that could explain the SM722’s appeal, but you’ll understand it as soon as you floor the gas pedal and the G-forces whip your face into a semi-permanent grin.

The Benefactor SM722, available now from Legendary Motorsport.

Now Open: Premium Deluxe Motorsport Showroom

Mr. Simeon Yetarian’s Premium Deluxe Motorsport showroom is the finest, most trustworthy, five-star user review, completely legitimate car dealership in Los Santos. And now it’s blipped on your map with five featured vehicles on the showroom floor. Walk around inside, test drive, or purchase any of what’s currently on display:

  • A classic black Benefactor Dubsta with unique trim previously unavailable in GTA Online
  • A Cheval Picador in a Matte Light Gray paint job and Pinstripes livery
  • The Albany Hermes (discounted 40% this week) in Classic Blue with matching Blue Flames livery
  • The Bravado Gauntlet Hellfire painted Pearlescent Garnet Red and wrapped in the Too Much Free Time livery
  • A Classic Harbor Blue Maibatsu Penumbra FF in the Sakura Tree livery

Luxury Autos Showroom Also Now Open

Calling Los Santos’ crème de la crème: if you’re looking for a high-end ride, visit the new Luxury Autos showroom just across the street from Record A Studios. There will be a pair of cars on display each week for you to marvel at before you make that life-enhancing purchase. This week’s window display shines a spotlight on the Grotti Itali GTO and a Metallic Ice White Obey Omnis e-GT.

Only on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S

  • Hao’s Premium Test Ride: The Shitzu Hakuchou Drag: Hao can’t rest if there are vehicles outperforming his own builds. That’s why the team of detail-obsessed motorheads at Hao’s Special Works tweaked this week’s Premium Test vehicle — the Shitzu Hakuchou Drag — so that the only time you’ll see your competitors is as a distant, disappearing speck in your rearview mirror.
  • Hao’s Special Works Time Trial: This week’s HSW Time Trial is a sprint between the sun-bleached town of Sandy Shores and the working-class neighborhood of La Puerta. Floor it and see if you can beat the clock.

3X GTA$ and RP on The Vespucci Job (Remix)

Step into the role of the heroic underdog, or team up with a squad of like-minded Interceptors to wipe the lone Runner off the map in any of the cinematic modes featured in The Vespucci Job (Remix). Whichever side you land on, you’ll all walk away with 3X GTA$ and RP, all week long.

Bunker Bonuses and More

This week, those with their own underground Bunker can earn a handsome living by meeting the black market’s demand head-on: completing Bunker Resupply Missions through Disruption Logistics will result in twice the number of Supplies, while completing a Bunker Ammu-Nation Contract or Bunker Research Mission will result in a GTA$200K bonus delivered within 72 hours of completion. Completing a Bunker Research Mission from Agent 14 will also result in the Avon Robot and the Armored Target dropping twice the usual research data that you can put toward your next project.

Meanwhile, completing any Gunrunning, Nightclub Warehouse, MC, or Special Cargo Sell Mission over the course of the next week will land you a pair of White Beat Off Earphones, free of charge.

Sell Missions can now be carried out in private, Invite Only sessions. To find one, enter the Pause Menu and press Online, Find New Session, then select Invite Only, Friends, or Crew.
