New Race Modes and More Coming to GTA Online

This page contains info on the Cunning Stunts update for GTA Online in Grand Theft Auto 5.

Cunning Stunts features a variety of new race types and vehicles, many of which focus on ridiculous Hot-Wheels-esque tracks that lead up and around the skyscrapers of Los Santos or high into the skies above Blaine County.

The update contains 13 new vehicles, 16 new Stunt Races, a slew of new customization options and two new Race modes: the Stunt Series and Premium Races. There are also several updates that will drop on August 2nd, including a new Adversary Mode and the Stunt Race Creator.

Announced on March 02nd, 2017, the Cunning Stunts: Special Vehicle Circuit will introduce unique stunt races for the Special Vehicles featured in the Import/Export Update.

The tracks for each Special Vehicle Stunt Race will be designed specifically for a certain type of Special Vehicle. A track for the Coil Rocket Voltic, for instance, will feature long jumps that can only be made using the vehicles rocket thrusters, while those featuring the amphibious Blazer Aqua will take place on both sea and land.

Now word yet on exactly when players can expect to dive into these new tracks, but it will likely be sometime in the next few weeks. The news also came alongside that additional Adversary Modes and new vehicles such as the GTA III-inspired Turismo and Infernus Classic plus the new Progen GP1 (above).

The GTA Online Stunt Series is aimed at making jumping into racing groups a bit more accessible than it already is. Less a “new mode” and more of a more accesible playlist, players can simply head towards the Stunt Series icon in Free Roam, and will automatically be sent into an active queue of Stunt Races.

Stunt Races are a type of racing mode that have players barreling along custom-designed tracks that feature loops, jumps, various hazards and other death-defying feats between the start and finish lines.

Premium Races are high-stakes races that pit eight players against each other for a massive prize (at huge risk).

To enter, each player must provide a $20,000(GTA$) entry fee – the first place winner will receive the entire pot ($160K) and the players who finish in second through last place will all drive away with nothing. There is, however, a Triple XP bonus for all players involved in a Premium Race.

Players must also own the Stunt-ready version of a specific vehicle type required for a Premium Race as well, so if you plan on entering these high-stakes races, make sure you’ve purchased some new wheels as well.

The Stunt Race Creator is an upgrade of the GTA Content Creator allowing anyone to develop huge stunt-race tracks.
