New Car Coming to Grand Theft Auto Online Proves Electric Is for All

Rockstar is back again this week with brand new content for Grand Theft Auto Online, including a brand new car that promises to have players racing through the street at top speeds, and more bonuses and discounts for fans to jump on.

According to a recent post on the Rockstar Games blog, the Coil Cyclone is an electric car that aims to buck the conventional stereotypes that they aren’t made to go fast. According to the brief description of the car, the days of the combustion engine are over, as the Cyclone aims to prove it’s much more than an environmentally conscious car:


In the past, you’d have been forgiven for thinking that electricity was for the weak and environmentally conscious. Those days are over, and the Coil Cyclone is here to change your mind faster than a 1,000 volt blast straight to the jewels. Fly off the line faster than a toupee in a hurricane and usher in the electric age with the Coil Cyclone supercar – now available for purchase at Legendary Motorsport.

Elsewhere in the game, Grand Theft Auto Online players can enjoy double GTA$ and RP in certain game modes for the remainder of the week before it ends on November 20. The Motor Wars and Transform Race playlists will all be rewarding Double GTA$ and RP, and Freemode will pay out double GTA$ for Bodyguard or Associate missions.

Rockstar has also detailed some of the discounts for this week, knocking 25% off the following items (full list on the Rockstar blog):


  • Biker Clubhouse Customizations
  • Biker Business Upgrades


  • Anti-Aircraft Trailer (Buy It Now & Trade Price)
  • Gunrunning Tattoos

Grand Theft Auto V is available now.
