Grand Theft Auto V vehicles are usually only considered in terms of speed. Whether it is the fastest cars, fastest bikes, or fastest planes. However, many other categories of interest determine what the best vehicles in GTA 5 Online truly are. In this article, we’ve collected the best vehicles from all categories. Therefore, there is a vehicle for every occasion and every player.
Without further ado, let’s get down to business!
One of the coolest cars in GTA Online is without a doubt the Ramp Buggy, half car half ramp. Based on the Fast and Furious 6 Flip Car, the Ramp Buggy can be used to send players flying when they attempt to hit you head-on. Purchasable from Wartstock Cache & Carry, it can be stored in a Vehicle Warehouse and customized at Los Santos Customs. However, customization is limited to performance upgrades.
Does it count even if it is a toy? The RC Bandito is a miniature remote-controlled vehicle in GTA Online, that can be controlled by players. This tiny Special Vehicle is packed full of surprises, with jump mods and explosive capabilities.
You can purchase it from Warstock Cache & Carry, and store it in the Arena Workshop. While it is slow at only 60.00 mph, it can withstand 3 Homing Missiles, and explode on command.
The Batmobile of cars, the Scramjet. This crazy-looking vehicle can use an unreliable Rocket Boost to fly across the map, however, you’re likely to explode on impact once the boost runs out.
Like most Special Vehicles, the Scramjet can be purchased from Wartstock Cache & Carry and customized at the Avenger Workshop. With a top speed of 137.00 mph, the Scramjet is fast, however, the Rocket Boost is what makes the vehicle unconventional and special.
More wheel than a car, the Zhaba is one of the weirdest-looking vehicles in GTA Online. Very similar to a monster truck in style, the Zhaba is effectively the armored cousin of this line of vehicles. With the giant wheels, you’ll be able to go all-terrain, including using other cars as terrain.
