If you want to get around in style or crush the competition, then you’ll need the best GTA Online vehicles to get you to your goal.
There’s more to the best vehicles than raw horsepower as well. Some let you fly or go underwater, and others have built-in weapon features to take down the competition, because fair races are boring anyway.
We've picked some of the top choices for missions, PvP, and races to help get you started.
Best GTA Online vehicles for missions
Missions take plenty of different forms, but they all need cars that get you to and from your destination both quickly and without taking too much damage.
The Insurgent is a beastly armored truck and a monster of a machine.
It’s slow, but the armor protects it against most serious assaults from other vehicles. You’ll dish out plenty of damage with the Insurgent as well. This lightly armored SUV can obliterate other armored vehicles such as the Kuruma and offers better range for using weapons inside.
Essentially, it’s your all in one vehicle suitable for nearly any mission.

Finish the Human Labs raid, then buy Insurgent from Warstock Cache & Carry for $675,000.
If the '80s aesthetics weren't enough, did we mention the Deluxo can fly?
The Deluxo’s big draw is it's flying homage to Back to the Future, which is really all it needs to do.
While it isn’t the fastest choice for races, using it in missions cuts out a fair bit of tedium and time since you can fly over buildings and get to your targets quickly.
The Oppressor Mk 2 does this as well, though we've opted to save that for later.

You can purchase Deluxo from Warstock Cache & Carry for the hefty sum of $4,721,500.
Best GTA Online vehicles for races
We’ve already outlined the game’s fastest cars in more detail, but here’s a short rundown.
This beast reaches top speeds of 136 mph.

This one comes from Legendary Motorsport and will set you back $1,420,000.
Grotti Itali RSX
There’s technically not much reason to pay millions more for the Grotti Itali RSX aside from the flex. It’s marginally slower than the Ocelot, after all. But it looks darn cool.

This one also comes from Legendary Motorsport, but costs $3,465,000.
Best GTA Online vehicles for PvP
PvP requires a balance between taking out your opponents and keeping yourself safe.
The Stromberg is a handy vehicle for getting around on the surface or underwater. The onboard homing missiles are what make this worth your time in PvP though, since it’s one of the only vehicles with a good chance of taking out the Oppressor Mk 2.

You can buy the Stromberg from Warstock Cache & Carry for $3,185,350.
The Weaponized Tampa is vulnerable to quite a bit, but that’s assuming you haven’t already destroyed the competition. This lightly armored car comes equipped with several weapons, including miniguns and mortars, making it a fantastic pick for more aggressive PvP matches.

Oppressor Mk 2
Oppressor Mk 2 is a solid choice if only because it’s so fast and versatile. This rocket-powered bike truly soars above the competition and, despite having some glaring weaknesses, can outpace most weapons.
You'll see a lot of streamers using this to jet around because it's so easy to get anywhere you want quickly on - it's well worth saving up for.
