Racing in GTA Online is massive and always a heated contest.
You always want to give yourself the best shot of winning as many races as possible. With most races being at least partly on San Andreas’ long freeways, your best bet is to opt for the car with the highest top speed.
We’ve compiled a list of the top five cars available in GTA Online and ranked them in terms of their overall top speed.
This is without modifications as well; all of these can be upgraded in the garage for enhanced performance.
5. Invetero Coquette D10
Top Speed: 130 mph (209.2 kph)
The fastest cars in GTA Online are the sports and super cars. The Invetero Coquette D10 is one of two sports cars on this list and is an absolute beauty. It may not be the absolute fastest car in the game, but you’ll be travelling in style in the D10.
Maxing out at 130 mph means that this car is rapid, but at just over $1.5m of in-game currency, the D10 is on the expensive side. The D10 is extremely fast off the marks though, able to go from 0-60 mph in just 3.9 seconds!
4. Bravado Banshee 900R
Top Speed: 131 mph (210.8 kph)
The least expensive car by far on this list is the Bravado Banshee 900R. At just over $500k of in-game currency, it’s at least over half a million cheaper than any of the alternatives on here.
If you’re strapped for cash, the 900R is definitely the car you want for racing! Where the Banshee falls down slightly though, is its acceleration. It goes from 0-60 mph in 5.5 seconds, the slowest of this top five.
However, if the race you’re in is primarily on freeways, it’s very tough to beat the Banshee 900R.
3. Principe Deveste Eight
Top Speed: 131.75 mph (212.03 kph)
The Principe Deveste Eight almost looks like it should be able to take off and fly, it’s a concept for the future.
The Deveste Eight is also one of the fastest cars in the game in terms of top speed, able to do 131.75 mph when given the chance. The acceleration levels that this car is able to achieve are barely believable as well.
In the Rockstar Games Social Club, you may notice that the Eight has the maximum possible acceleration levels in GTA Online, nothing can beat it.
At a cost of nearly $1.8m, it’s the priciest inclusion on this top five, but if you’ve got the money, you can’t do much better than this. The Eight comes into its own for tight and twisty races, the stop-start nature of a Los Santos track would be ideal for this car.
2. Pfister 811
Top Speed: 132.5 mph (213.03 kph)
Pfister’s 811 is a thing of beauty and is the second-fastest car in GTA Online I terms of top speed.
Its top speed is an incredible 132.5 mph and the 811 can do 0-60 mph is just 3.67 seconds.
The 811 is a fantastic all-round racer and is also on the cheaper side at just under $1,000,000 to buy.
1. Ocelot Pariah
Top Speed: 136 mph (218.87 kph)
The outright fastest car in GTA Online is the Ocelot Pariah. With a top speed of 136 mph, it’s markedly faster than any other unmodified car in the game.
Released onto GTA V as part of the Doomsday Heist DLC, the Pariah is a level above anything else in the game. It’s also capable of incredible acceleration too, although not on the same scale as the Deveste Eight.
The Pariah doesn’t look like the fastest car in the game, something your opponents would be unwise to believe. If you’re racing on a course with a lot of straight sections, you can’t do better than the Ocelot Pariah.
At just over $1.4m though, it’s a heavy investment, but one that’s good value for money and less than some other vehicles in GTA Online.
