GTA Online Summer DLC 2021

We’ve been getting some exciting new teasers for GTA Online’s Summer DLC – now we finally know what Rockstar has in store for us!

Los Santos Tuners

The Los Santos Tuners will be available to play from July 20!  This new update introduces the LS Car Meet, a gigantic, shared social space where you and your cherished personal vehicle can meet up and show off with chances to win easy money.

LS Car Meets

The GTA Online DLC has requirements to be able to go to the LS Car Meets. You will need to have a ‘non-descript, graffitied warehouse on the edge of Cypress Flats’. Also the Car Meet should have a good vibes only policy!

To start, you’ll unlock a new Reputation progression with new benefits unlocking after each Level. Plus, you’ll get access to the Test Track, a large underground space inside the Car Meet warehouse where you and your friends can drive, drift, and race vehicles freely, without interference from pesky pedestrians or the law. You can also sample new Test Rides in the Test Track – your chance to get behind the wheel of a rotating selection of vehicles and push their limits.

Members will also get to compete in rotating Prize Ride Challenges for the opportunity to win a special Prize Ride and get access to a range of special shops and features — including the Merch Shop, Tattoo Shop, and the Modding Area, where you can show off your customization prowess to other players in real time as you work on your stanced build. Higher level Members can also create a Private Takeover complete with customizable lighting and banner colors to decorate the Car Meet space to your tastes.

The GTA Online DLC will have new races inside and outside of the car meet location with their own leaderboards. You can take part in Head-to-Head, Street Stunt Races and Pursuit Series

The Street Race Series will compete on creative tracks built on the streets of Los Santos’ most scenic neighbourhoods.

Earn REP

In the world of GTA Online, Rep is as important as ever. Here’s what we know about the Summer DLC’s Rep-earning potential:

In the underground world of the Car Meet, Reputation is a valuable commodity. Earn Rep by participating in (and winning) races, daily log in bonuses, putting in time on the Test Track, and even just hanging out at the Car Meet.

Earning REP includes unlocking access to all sorts of fashionable gear, flashy new car customization options like new wheels and liveries, as well as Trade Prices on certain vehicles, access to new Race modes, and even the ability to hold your own private Car Meet.
