GTA Online players rush into the open world every day to earn rewards, money and reputation. Time trials are one of those ways for players to get quick rewards and keep the cash flow coming in.

First introduced in 2015 with the Freemode Events update, Time Trials is a short form of races where players try to beat the par-time. Since there are no checkpoints or specific ways to track, players are given the freedom to choose how they want to reach their destination in such events. However, vehicle choice is very important as it affects players’ completion of these time trial events.

Here are the top five vehicles players must choose to complete time trials.


Top 5 GTA Online Time Trial Vehicles

5) Benefactor Krieger

Benefactor Krieger is a two-door hypercar that is strongly inspired by the real Mercedes-AMG One. It is considered a great all-round supercar when it comes to performance. Aside from a pretty good top speed and comfortable handling, it also has excellent traction and acceleration.

The car is powered by a mid-rear engine mated to a 7-speed AWD gearbox and can reach a maximum speed of 127.25 mph (204.79 km/h). This allows players to drive quickly after applying the brakes, making it suitable for completing time trials in GTA Online.

Benefactor Krieger is for sale for $2,875,000 at Legendary Motorsport.


4) Progen Emerus

Inspired by the real McLaren Senna 2019, Progen Emerus is a two-door hypercar in GTA Online. It is known for its top speed and high acceleration capabilities. The car also has good traction, making it more attractive for tight turns. It is powered by a V8 engine with a dizzying 7-speed gearbox.

Progen Emerus can reach a maximum speed of a whopping 127.25 mph (204.79 km/h). The concern can be purchased for $2,750,000 from Legendary Motorsport in-game.

Dewbauchee Vagner is very similar to the real Aston Martin Valkyrie, Nio EP9 and Jaguar C-X75. The car has an excellent top speed and quite good road holding. It can move quickly after cornering and can be stored in players’ garages and customized at Los Santos Customs in GTA Online.

Dewbauchee Vagner appears to be powered by a V8 engine and can reach a maximum speed of 126.75 mph (203.98 km/h). The supercar can be purchased in-game for $1,535,000 from Legendary Motorsport.

Rockstar Games describes the car as:

“The Vagner is a message from the future: you are late.”


2) Annis S80RR

Next on our list is the Annis S80RR endurance race car, which is inspired by the real Nissan R90C. The vehicle has pretty good acceleration and top speed compared to other super class cars in GTA Online. Despite being a race car, it can steer sharply in corners. The weight and downward force of the car help keep it stable even on uneven roads.

The Annis S80RR is powered by a single-cam V8 engine and a 6-speed gearbox, and it can reach a maximum speed of 197.95 km/h. The race car can be purchased in-game for $2,575,000 from Legendary Motorsport.


1) Truffade Thrax

At number 1 we have the Truffade Thrax hypercar in GTA Online. It seems to be inspired by the real Bugatti Divo.

The vehicle is in a class of its own when it comes to performance. It’s packed with tremendous acceleration and impeccable grip, allowing the car to corner with ease without losing momentum. On a straight road, it can even exceed the top speed compared to other supercars in GTA Online.

The engine resembles the W16 engine and comes with a 7-speed manual transmission. Truffade Thrax can reach a maximum speed of 124.00 mph (199.56 km/h). The car can be purchased for $2,325,000 from Legendary Motorsport in-game.
