Keeping good on their promise to continue to add new vehicles to Grand Theft Auto V, Rockstar Games announced today that they will be releasing yet another free update next Tuesday that will introduce the Declasse Sabre Turbo Custom to GTA Online. Unlike most of the existing stock of fully modified street cars that are currently available at Benny’s Original Motor Works, the Sabre Turbo Custom gives users access to a classic vehicle that is capable of putting the power of a genuine muscle car behind the title’s next lowrider.
“There’s new Muscle in town and it’s heading to Benny’s Original Motor Works next week Tuesday, April 19th. The imposing Declasse Sabre Turbo Custom will be available for Benny’s signature styling, with a wide range of impressive upgrades to choose from – whether it’s hefty V8 engine blocks or glorious interiors and liveries designed to make a lasting impact.”
Not wanting players to simply wait around for Tuesday’s release of Grand Theft Auto V‘s newest vehicle, Rockstar Games also kicked off a full week of special discounts and rewards that can be enjoyed within GTA Online from now until next Thursday. Dubbed as Sabre Week, users can now pick up any property in the game for 20 percent off its normal price. This includes all garage properties, making it easier for players to find a spot to store the upcoming Declasse Sabre Turbo Custom.
In addition to the current sale on apartments, Rockstar Games is also offering in-game discounts on personal customization options in GTA V that will help players show off their online characters after taking advantage of cheap clothing and tattoos this week only.

For those looking to level up their GTA Online account, the new event also features double RP rewards for select racing playlists throughout the week. Users can also earn the extra RP payouts for a few other vehicle-based missions such as impromptu races. On top of that, player will receive additional benefits for carpooling as all activities will earn more RP depending on how many passengers are in a car.
In a rare promotion, Rockstar Games is also offering customers with free rebates on all in-game GTA Online cash earned through Shark Card purchases. During the Sabre Week event, fans will get rebates on all Grand Theft Auto V real world transactions.
“Get what you want faster– with GTA$ cash-back rebate bonuses available until Thursday, April 21st. This week only, purchase a Bull, Great White, Whale or Megalodon Shark Card and receive free bonus GTA$ – the bigger the card value, the heftier the GTA$ rebate you’ll get. Cards purchased between Friday, April 15th and Thursday, April 21st qualify, and all the bonus GTA$ you earn during that period will be automatically deposited as one lump sum in your in-game Maze Bank Checking account by Friday, April 29th.”
Detailing more about the Shark Card rebate promotion, the developer released an FAQ on their official support website. The amount of bonus cash that can be acquired through Shark Card purchases this week increases depending on how much users are willing to spend. Those who pick up the largest currency card available will receive 50 percent more GTA cash on top of their order.
Despite the fact that the only thing that players can buy in Grand Theft Auto Online is the same in-game currency that can be earned by completing missions, the game’s publisher is apparently earning a decent profit through digital transactions. As the Inquisitr reported earlier this year, Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick admits that they have repeatedly been surprised by exactly how much money Grand Theft Auto V continues to make from digital purchases.
As Rockstar Games works to release more custom vehicles in GTA Online, which car would you like to see added to Benny’s garage next?
