Just one week after Rockstar Games added the Ocelot XA-21 hybrid supercar into Grand Theft Auto Online, the studio has doubled down on the fictional car brand with the retro aesthetics of the Ocelot Ardent. Swapping modern design with pure old-school vigor, the Ardent boasts more than just a nostalgic feeling: it comes with two mounted machineguns in the front, making it the perfect car to fulfill one’s Knight Rider fantasy in GTA Online.
The Ocelot Ardent is now available from the Warstock Cache and Carry in-game website, and will cost gamers a cool $1,150,000 to purchase. It’s most obvious real-life comparison is the Lotus Esprit, which had its heyday in the late ’80s and early ’90s. While it’s probably nearly impossible to find one with bumper-mounted machineguns in real life, the Ardent is just a good heist’s worth of money away from purchase in the realm of GTA Online.
Rockstar Games is still fanning the flames of the Gunrunning Update, and so it’s no surprise that gamers playing through the official bunker series playlist or bunker-based adversary mode are poised to get double money and RP through August 28, 2017. For those more interested in driving than shooting, the Vehicle Vendetta Adversary Mode and Vehicle Cargo Sell Missions will also dish out double cash rewards (and double experience for the latter) until next Monday. Everyone who has a gunrunning empire in the works this week will also witness a 25% increase to research and manufacturing speeds, too.
The previous 25% sale on the Route 68 Bunker has now finished, and those looking at Maze Bank Foreclosures can now pursue a new discount location: the Smoke Tree Road Bunker. As well, the Vehicle Cargo Warehouse and all executive offices offered through the Dynasty 8 in-game website are 25% off, so it’s a pretty good time to invest in real estate. While the Ardent itself isn’t on sale, the Rocket Voltic, Cognoscenti 55, and Schafter LWB also each get 25% off discounts for the time being.
Lastly, the premium special vehicle race has been switched to Pulse, with the vehicle choice being locked into the Rocket Voltic – meaning the start of each race is sure to result in many a car pile up as gamers let loose with the boost. Meanwhile, the time trial event has switched from Tongva Valley to Coast To Coast.
Grand Theft Auto 5 is available now on PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One.
