Players will have to grind getting their own "LS Car Meet Membership," a "Reputation," and participate in "New Races" in the area. Play and earn exclusive rewards by doing the aforementioned options.

Earn a Reputation

Going underground, Reputation and street credit are valuable commodities. Earn "Reputation" by participating in daily log-in bonuses, putting time in the Test Track, winning races, and hanging out in the Car Meet.

LS Car Meet Membership

Members could also compete in "Prize Ride Challenges" and win "Prize Ride" rewards. Later, they can unlock a new "Merch Shop," "Tattoo Shop," and "Modding area" where members can customize cars in real-time.

Higher-level members can even incite a "Private Takeover." This lets them customize lighting and banner colors to decorate the Car Meet spaces!

New Race Modes

"GTA Online" is also adding new races inside and outside the Car Meet. Note that each race has its own Leaderboards

  • Head-to-Head - Race for speed a precision against an opponent in a short format race.
  • Scramble - Four players will race to collect 20 checkpoints. The fastest player wins.
  • Time Trials - Race around the track and compare who was the fastest personal record.

Players can also race anywhere in the Los Santos neighborhood! Two new race modes could be activated anywhere at any time, so players can pick their own road. However, note that racing in the street will involve new challenges, like avoiding pedestrians, other cars and even having LSPD's finest chasing them.

  • Street Race Series - race on creative tracks built on the streets of Los Santos scenic neighborhoods.
  • Pursuit Series - race by completing checkpoints scattered around the map.

'Fast and Furious'-Like Car Racing 

The incoming "GTA Online" Los Santos Tuners shows a lot of resemblance to the "Fast and Furious" racing experience. Players get their chance to explore the underground automotive society where only car enthusiasts and the meanest street drivers hang out.

Show off your car, earn the respect, and make your record in the hottest street races!
