Even though this week’s update to Grand Theft Auto Online isn’t quite as meaty as what we’ve seen in past weeks, there’s still more than enough to get excited about – especially if you’re into exotic cars.

First up, players can now pick up the Progen Itali GTB Custom from Benny’s Original Motor Works shop. It’s a pretty sleek vehicle, and you can soup it up in a number of ways – particularly if green isn’t your color.

“This sleek jungle cat packs serious speed, devours tight turns with ease, and is sure to terrorize opposing racers across the circuit,” the company noted about the car. “Endlessly customizable, Benny’s latest includes options to modify everything from engine performance to the finest interior details.”

But that’s not all. The Custom Auto Shop add-on is now available for offices, for those that are “qualifying executives” within the game. This means you can customize vehicles without having to go all the way to Benny’s to make your ride look good.

To celebrate the arrival of this new content, Rockstar Games is also hosting a sale for in-game items for Grand Theft Auto Online, from now until January 16th. You can pick up the following items on the cheap:

  • 25% more GTA$ on Vehicle Export
  • 25% off Special Vehicle Warehouse Renovations & Special Cargo Warehouses
  • 50% off Grenade Launchers
  • 25% off Engine Performance Upgrades
  • 25% off Body Armor, Ammo, Throwables and Explosive Weapon Ammo
  • 25% off all Masks

It’s a good time to stock up on items…especially grenade launchers.

Grand Theft Auto Online is available now, as part of Grand Theft Auto V, for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
