GTA Online Cunning Stunts update goes live, has absurd races and ridiculously expensive cars

The Cunning Stunts update for GTA Online is now live on PS4, PC and Xbox One, and we've got all the details for it right here, including its $2.55m super car. First off, don't be surprised if you can't make your own races out of patriotic hamster tubes yet - the Stunt Race Creator won't arrive until August 2. Until then, you'll just have to risk your life in more than a dozen Rockstar-created courses that stretch across Southern San Andreas.

If you want higher stakes than the usual "winner gets some extra cash" approach, Cunning Stunts has also added limited-time Premium Races. From now through Monday, you'll be able to ante up for a different race every day to take on seven other players in winner-take-all competitions. If you don't take first place, you don't get any of your cash back - but at least everybody gets triple Reputation Points for participating.

The update also adds a set of new vehicles to the game, all of which are available for purchase from Southern San Andreas Super Autos and Legendary Motorsport. Here are their prices, thanks in part to Reddit user Wangfap (uh, sorry for all the suggestive names in this article). Those Super Car prices are the really Stunning part of this update.
