Those eagerly awaiting the Coil Cyclone release date no longer have to wait, as the electric supercar has just become available for purchase in Grand Theft Auto Online this week. Inviting players to “drive the lightning,” the new car is advertised as a bastion of power and speed, shedding the notion of electric cars as environmentally friendly vehicles that might save their owners a bit of money at the gas pump.
The new ride can be purchased in-game at Legendary Motorsport for about $1,890,000 in-game cash. It offers a comparatively quiet drive when compared to its combustion engine alternatives. Some players may be concerned about its somewhat limited customization options when compared to other cars in its class. There are about 10 spoiler options, five front bumper choices, five skirts, and several liveries to choose from. Color options include the ability to update the primary, secondary, and trim colors.
GTA Online players can also earn double money and RP all week through Motor Wars and Transform Races, starting today and running through Monday, November 20. The bonus also extends to the player’s salary when working as an Associate or Bodyguard in Freemode.
Time Trial and Premium Race for the week also run through November 20 and come with their own rewards. Just participating in the “Zebra” premium sport race this week (which is locked to sports) nets all players triple RP just for competing. The top three finishers are rewarded with additional GTA$ for their achievements. The Time Trial is “Mount Gordo” this week, and beating the par time has a handsome GTA$ and RP prize for all who dare to complete the challenge.
