GTA Online weekly update adds a new car, the Ruiner ZZ-8


GTA Online’s weekly update for August 18th is live and adds a new car, the Imponte Ruiner ZZ-8, to Grand Theft Auto 5’s multiplayer mode. The update also includes two new freemode events for smugglers, a huge boost to clubhouse contracts, and boosts to multiple race types in the open-world game, including those on the island of Cayo Perico. We’ve got all the details here ahead of the official Rockstar patch notes, which should arrive a bit later.

The highlight of the week of August 18 is the new automotive addition, the Imponte Ruiner ZZ-8. Grand Theft Auto’s version of the iconic American muscle car, the Pontiac Firebird – specifically the 30th anniversary Trans Am released in 1999 – the Ruiner is a very sleek 2-door muscle car that will set you back $1,320,000 in cash GTA to add to your collection.

The Ruiner ZZ-8 can be found in the Luxury Showcase store alongside the Ocelot Pariah sports car. Meanwhile, Simeon’s Showroom offers the Vapid Speedo, Weeny Dynasty, Vulcar Fagaloa, Karin Sultan Classic and the luxury muscle car Impaler. Also unlocked is a cute new pair of wild stripe pool sliders, if you want to complete the midlife crisis look in style.

If you’re looking to win a new set of wheels instead, the GTA Online prize of the week is the Vapid Retinue, a vintage 2-door coupe that can be yours to finish in the top five in street racing for two days running. If you’d rather have luck on your side, the Dewbauchee Rapid GT Classic is GTA Online’s podium car and can be yours if you manage to get lucky at the Diamond Casino prize wheel.

Two new Freemode Random Events are now available: the Smuggler Plane Event, with a 35-minute cooldown, and the Smuggler Trial Event, with a 20-minute cooldown. Additionally, players can earn triple the usual in-game cash and reputation rewards for completing Clubhouse contracts, or double cash and reputation for Cayo Perico races as well as land and air races.

There’s also the usual range of discounts on offer, which you can see below:
