What is the fastest car in GTA 5?
The fastest car in GTA 5 single-player story mode is the Pißwasser Dominator, with a top speed of 126.50 mph, according statistics on ‘GTABase’.
This stockcar boasts the top speeds for story mode, making it a great choice for exploring one of the best Xbox open world games and best PS5 open world games. If you can put up with the Pißwasser branding, that is.
Keep in mind, this is just for the GTA 5 story mode, as GTA Online has lots more cars and upgrades to acquire. You can find out all about the fastest cars in the online mode below.
What is the fastest car in GTA Online?
The fastest car in GTA Online is the BF Weevil Custom, with a top speed of 137.50 mph (221.28 km/h). However, if you’re playing on PS5 and Xbox Series X|S, the Itali GTO Stinger TT takes top spot due to exclusive access to Hao’s Special Works.
You wouldn’t think that the BF Weevil Custom, a vehicle based on a VW Beetle, would be the fastest car in a game packed with super cars. Nevertheless, it claims the top speed according to ‘GTABase‘. As an added bonus, it’s also much cheaper than the competition, coming in at $980,000. Although, another budget option is the Bravado Banshee 900R, the ninth fastest car, costing only $565,000. As such, we’d recommend getting the Banshee if you’re on a strict budget, at least until you can afford the BF Weevil Custom.
Interestingly though, for those of you on PS5 and Xbox Series X|S, the Itali GTO Stinger TT is actually the fastest car in GTA 5 and GTA Online. This is because Hao’s Special Works, a mechanic that can massively increase the performance of cars, is currently restricted to next-gen consoles. Yes, even PC players can’t access HSW. So, if you’re playing on next-gen consoles then you can swap the BF Weevil Custom for the more glamorous Itali GTO Stinger TT once you’ve upgraded it.
Here are the top 10 fastest cars in GTA Online:
|BF Weevil Custom||137.50 mph||$980,000||Benny’s Original Motor Works|
|Ocelot Pariah||136 mph||$1,420,000||Legendary Motorsport|
|Grotti Itali RSX||135.30 mph||$3,465,000||Legendary Motorsport|
|Pfister 811||132.50 mph||$1,135,000||Legendary Motorsport|
|Grotti Itali GTO Stinger TT||132 mph||$2,380,000||Legendary Motorsport|
|Principe Deveste Eight||131.75 mph||$1,795,000||Legendary Motorsport|
|Lampadati Corsita||131.30 mph||$1,795,000||Legendary Motorsport|
|Overflod Entity MT||131.25 mph||$2,355,000||Legendary Motorsport|
|Bravado Banshee 900R||131 mph||$565,000||Benny’s Original Motor Works|
|Pegassi Torero XO||131 mph||$2,890,000||Legendary Motorsport|
The BF Weevil Custom took top spot from the previous champion, the Ocelot Pariah, while also being significantly cheaper. Nevertheless, the Pariah is still a comparatively bargain price compared to cars like the Grotti Itali RSX. Not only does this sports car beat its super class rivals, but it’s also inspired by the Ferrari 812 Superfast and the Aston Martin V12 Zagato.
While the BF Weevil Custom might be the fastest car in GTA 5, the Pariah is not one to be messed with in races, either. You’ll just need to master its handling in order to get the best out of it. Though it’s a must-have for any GTA garage.
The Grotti Itali RSX, which dropped with the 1.52 Cayo Perico Heist update, is another great pick. This is based on the stunning Ferrari SF90 Stradale. If you don’t fancy spending over $3m to own one, thankfully you can get it at the trade price of *only* $2,598,750 after you’ve completed a series of DJ Request jobs.
With likely plenty of time before the GTA 6 release date, you’ve got time to save up for one of fastest cars in GTA 5 and GTA Online, whether it’s the surprisingly speedy Weevil or the garages full of supercars. And for more high speed action, why not check out the best racing games right now?
