In this week’s GTA Online update, a number of vehicles are offered at discounted prices. While some are excellent choices for new and experienced players alike, not all of them are worth buying.

This article selects only the best vehicles to consider adding to their garage. Some of these may already be owned by a large number of players, making this more useful for GTA Online novices than experts.


Some of the best GTA Online vehicles to consider buying now

5) Pfister Comet

The Pfister Comet is one of the cheapest cars in GTA Online this week, with a price tag of $60,000. It is an iconic vehicle that can be found throughout the series, and it performs admirably in all of them. This version of the Comet is a RWD vehicle, just like its real-life equivalent, the Porsche 996 GT2.

While the car’s performance is normal for a sports car, the traction is superior to most vehicles in its class. However, players should be aware that the Comet is extremely light and can be quite tail heavy. The usual cost of the car is $100,000, and the Retro Custom upgrade will run them $645,000.

This week, however, the upgrade is also discounted, and GTA Online players can get it for $387,000. This upgrade is completely optional and reduces the performance of the car. In any case, the Comet is an essential vehicle in the game that every player should own because of its history.


4) Offspring GP1

In terms of performance, the Progen GP1 loses out to its closest competitor, the Progen T20, and is basically a downgraded Progen Tire. However, given that the GP1 costs much less than these two, the performance is more than adequate.

GTA Online players can justify buying the GP1 this week because of the discount, as it currently costs $882,000. The driving characteristics of this car are exceptional, and it is a major advantage compared to other vehicles in its class.

Most car enthusiasts will easily recognize that the GP1 is based on the legendary McLaren F1. Rockstar has managed to make it work like a real supercar, even if the GP1 isn’t nearly as fast. Compared to the Tyre, the GP1 is the better choice, especially when you consider the price-performance ratio.


3) Mammoth Avenger

The Avenger is GTA Online’s answer to the V-22 Osprey and as such it’s quite a unique vehicle. The best thing about this aircraft is its armor, and it is often considered a suitable vehicle for survival against grief.

The Avenger has extremely strong armor that can absorb massive damage. However, it is not as tough as the MOC, even though it can withstand a lot of knocks before being thrashed. This is most likely due to it being an aircraft, which limits its effective endurance.

Despite being discounted, the Avenger is not a cheap vehicle in GTA Online. Interested players will have to pay another $2,070,000 this week to buy it. The weapons, armor and explosives are also not pre-installed and will cost a lot.


2) Jobuilt P-996 LAZER

The LAZER is easily considered one of the best planes in GTA Online. However, most players simply avoid it because of the $6,500,000 price tag. It’s on sale this week and you can buy it for $4,550,000. While this doesn’t make it cheap, a $2 million drop in price is a good reason to buy it.

The LAZER has excellent mobility and is very responsive. It can pitch, yaw, and roll in any direction quite quickly. In combination with this, the short take-off and landing distance further enhances this. Therefore, the P-996 is an excellent aircraft for getting from point A to B quickly and efficiently, while avoiding mourners.

Unlike other aircraft, the LAZER never stops during a vertical takeoff. This makes it perfect for breaking the functional air limit, above which players cannot open their parachutes. The weapons in this vehicle are also quite intimidating and can make any enemy quick to work.


1) HVY Nightshark

The Nightshark is a novice’s best friend in GTA Online and may be a better alternative to the Armored Kuruma. Apart from being armored, it also comes with machine guns, and the best part about them is that they are pilot operated. This is why solo players should stick to the Nightshark instead of the Insurgent Pick-Up Custom.

The Nightshark was recently discounted and GTA Online players who haven’t picked it up yet have another chance to do so. It is currently priced at just $747,000.
