Best Cars per Class (PS4)

Recommended Posts

JustHatched

What are the best cars for racing in GTA Online you ask?
See @Protocawl post below!


 

Here is a list as voted by the crew as the best cars in each class for racing (updated after Cunning Stunts DLC). 

In the following post in this thread there is a breakdown of many of these cars and their unique characteristic that makes them the best.

 

Supers - RE-7B (class leader), by far the most popular car in class, there is a reason why we and the top racers in other crews use this car. The ETR is an alternative but in general won't fair as well as the RE-7B. If you are content with running middle to the back of the pack then Tyrus or T20 would get you there. If you are buying your first Super then don't waste money on anything but the RE-7B for racing Supers

 

Sports Classic- The Stirling GT is by far the class leader and really the only option for racing in this class. The Z-Type is only competitive in large races with very long straightaways which are rarely raced, fast for that type of racing only and not worth buying unless you have all the other leading cars and want to spend a bunch of in game money,

 

Sports  - This class has a few cars that can compete with each other, as voted the Massacro (Racecar)  is the class leader, once you are decent enough driver to take advantage of other characteristics of other cars in the class you might consider the Elegy RH8 or Jester (Racecar)

 

Muscle - This class comes down to the Pisswasser Dominator or Blade, essentially each is better than the other on a particular type of track, it is suggested you read the post below this one and decide, you may consider getting both is you can afford it. Beyond those 2 there are other fast Muscles but these are the 2 dominate cars.

 

Coupes - As voted the Zion (or cabrio varient) is the class leader, with the Felon and Exemplar following it, all 3 are fairly close with some differences that may make one feel better for you than the other, none are overly priced. Check the post below for more info.

 

Sedans - Schafter V12 is the best, nothing else in class comes close.

 

SUVs - The Contender is class leader, the XLS (Armored) and Huntley S follow it. As of writing this I can't say how much faster the leader is (haven't done enough SUV racing personally) but I would say don't waste your time on anything other than the leader.

 

Compacts - Brioso R/A is faster by quite a bit than its competition.

 

Motorcycles - The Akuma is the bike to get if you only plan to buy 1 bike for racing, The BatiRR is its rival, has better top end speed but weaker acceleration and doesn't corner as well, the Hakuochu is also competitive but not a class leading racer.

 

Offroad - Tough class to pick one vehicle as there is so many options, the BF400 motorcycle was voted best, but the Trophy Truck or Desert Raid are very competitive and preferred by many over the motorcycle. For racing in this crew once you have bought the leaders in each class if you have room an Insurgent (which you should have for Free Roam shenanigans) might be considered for deep water racing.

 

Vans - Gang Burrito is the class leader, if you looking to spend some money on other vans to try for fun after buying all other class leader the Rumpo Custom and Bison are a bit not as good as the Gang Burrito.

 

Utility - Though not used often, the Sadler is recommended to by for Utility racing, you don't want to be stuck on a Faggio or Caddy while everyone else leaves you behind.

 

By all the class leaders first, don't waste money on anything else because you will be disappointed with the results and will be broke from spending all your money on other stuff.

The funniest thing about this particular signature is that by the time you realise it doesn't say anything it's to late to stop reading it.
