GTA Online Begins The Vespucci Job

By Rebecca Smith,
The GTA Online: Southern San Andreas Super Sport Series continues to entertain players in Grand Theft Auto V. In this week's update, developer Rockstar has added a new game mode and three new vehicles to keep things fresh for players.

The three new vehicles will be added to different showrooms. The Vapid Flash GT Sports car, a "highly customizable American-engineered hatchback", can be found at the Legendary Motorsport showroom. Meanwhile, the Weeny Issi Classic is located in the Southern San Andreas Super Autos showrooms. Players can also use this vehicle in the new game mode. Finally, if you fancy taking to the skies instead of the road, the amphibious miniature Sea Sparrow helicopter can be purchased from Elitás Travel. The latter also comes with the option to add machine guns or missiles.

The new game mode is not at all inspired by The Italian Job. Players are divided into two teams. The first team takes to the road in the Weeny Issi Classic as they try to hit the checkpoints before time runs out. The second team is in the squad car directly behind them, trying everything in their power to stop them from getting away. The mode is available until April 23rd and will, of course, offer Double GTA$ & RP.
