Grand Theft Auto V and Online have taken on a life of their own. Who could have predicted that Rockstar's 2013 sequel would still be going strong after more than half a decade? In 2019, GTA V still regularly tops best-seller charts and this incredible longevity can only be credited to the multiplayer component. After all, Rockstar infamously opted to not release any single-player expansions, while Online recently introduced the Diamond Casino update because there is no such thing as too much money.
GTA Online is all about looking good and making a ton of cash along the way. Hypercars may cost a hefty amount of the latter, but they are a crucial part of satisfying the former. Here are ten tips on obtaining supercars in Grand Theft Auto V and Online.
10 The Best Car For The Job
Putting aside DLC vehicles, GTA V's base game comes with six hypercars. Admittedly, not the most expansive selection, but that is honestly enough for the 30-hour campaign. Luckily, most of the hypercars are relatively easy to find, often showing up during missions.
One prime example is the Bullet, which can be acquired right at the start of Franklin's "Repossession" mission. Obviously, if there is a nice, shiny vehicle in the vicinity, then clearly it is meant to be used during the current mission! More importantly, vehicles stolen during main quests begin to spawn more frequently after that point.
Look, we wish there was a simple way to collect all the hypercars in an afternoon without having to spend hours grinding. However, GTA Online rewards those who are willing to put in the leg-work. At the end of the day, San Andreas revolves around money and heists are the quickest way to make a ton of cash quickly.
Heists are arguably the best part of Online, as they are the closest thing to single-player missions. It is also possible to make a huge amount of money in a matter of hours.
8 Just Take The Vacca
If forced to pick the most "common" supercar in GTA V, the Vacca would probably come out on top. While the vehicle is a bit too underpowered for the multiplayer's competitive scene, the Vacca is one of the better cars available in the single-player's base game.
There are multiple missions where the supercar spawns close to the playable character, basically begging to be stolen. "Meltdown" is the most obvious example, as the Vacca is literally parked right next to Michael's getaway car. Just take it.
7 The Rich Side Of Town
GTA V's single-player campaign may give away hypercars like they are going out of fashion, but the multiplayer mode is a whole other story. Online is designed to be a grind, therefore the best vehicles generally have to be purchased.
That said, a couple of entry-level supers are known to spawn in certain areas of Los Santos, primarily those associated with the wealthy. Just to be clear, do not expect to find a Vagner roaming Rockford Hills; however, if the stars align, a wild Voltic may appear.
With over 40 supercars available, settling on the right one for you can be a difficult task. Along with looking as stylish as possible, the hypercar must also be competitive for races. Otherwise, supers are nothing more than expensive ornaments. Which is fine for collectors, sure, but some of us like to use our fancy toys.
Regardless of someone's experience, the Zentorno is the ideal supercar. With great speed and acceleration, the only thing holding this monster back is its mediocre braking, but the affordable cost more than makes up for that underwhelming stat. As the Zentorno can only be purchased in GTA Online, ignore any of the cheaper vehicles and focus on obtaining this one.
5 The Luck Of The Switch
Hypercars do spawn relatively frequently in the single-player campaign, with some being linked to a specific area in Los Santos. Alternatively, the player may essentially stumble into a gold mine by simply switching to another playable character.
While Trevor and Michael are more likely to surprise you with a midlife crisis, switching to Franklin at the right time may just cause an Adder to appear out of thin air. Not only is this the most expensive of the six supercars included in the base game, the Adder actually makes being stuck in traffic sound like a blessing.
4 Drive Supercars To Obtain Supercars
GTA V practically gives the Infernus hypercar away at any given opportunity. The vehicle spawns at a number of different locations (such as Richman Hotel and Mirror Park) and is also relatively affordable compared to other automobiles registered under the same class.
Funnily enough, one way to increase the chances of the Infernus showing up on the streets is to drive around in a Turismo R. Now, the Turismo R is a DLC vehicle that also costs more within the game, so it would be akin to using a shark as bait to lure a single piranha.
3 Ruin A Mission, Get A Hypercar
"I Fought the Law..." is a pretty fun mission involving all three of GTA V's main protagonists. At one point, the player is presented with the opportunity to pick their poison out of the three leads, with Trevor and Michael driving a Cheetah and Entity XF respectively.
After picking one of them, modify the car at Los Santos Customs before failing the mission. Once the mission is then completed, the car will be available to purchase as the city's impound. Essentially, the point is to purposefully have your vehicle impounded, so it remains available once the mission is completed. Alternatively, the Cheetah and Entity XF can both be purchased for Legendary Motorsport for a hefty price.
2 Vehicle Cargo
Along with being a time-effective way to earn a fair bit of spare change, Vehicle Cargo missions present an opportunity to drive around in some of GTA Online's more prestigious supercars. Once the player purchases an office and warehouse, they can start to steal and flip cars.
Around 32 vehicles - including 12 high-end cars - randomly spawn during these missions, and GTA V does not allow for any duplicates. As vehicles can be stored indefinitely, the smartest bet is to leave the less spectacular cars in the warehouse, so that every subsequent mission will be for a supercar.
1 Be Way Of The Random Parked Hypercar...
Occasionally, a random hypercar - even one of the more expensive models - may show up on the streets of Los Santos in GTA Online. Before celebrating your lucky find, it is best to be wary of any parked supers, especially those that are a notch above the likes of the Vacca or Voltic.
It is not uncommon for players to use a hypercar as bait for any greedy passer-by looking to score an easy Itali GTB or a Tempesta. More often than not, this ends with the thief going up in a fiery explosion. One of the oldest (yet most effective) tricks in the book.
