Lowriders Custom Classics Event Week: Special Discounts plus Double GTA$ on SUMO and More

Posted on March 18 2016, 11:06am | Author: R* L | Filed Under: Social Club, Games

This week, Benny's Original Motor Works re-upped its considerable range of services to include a fresh set of slammed and chopped rides as part of GTA Online Lowriders: Custom Classics. Alongside the Vapid Slamvan CustomDundreary Virgo Classic and Willard Faction Custom Donk which you can now completely make your own, there's also the brand new Sumo Adversary Mode, two new weapons and a street-ready spring collection of new clothes, haircuts and tats available in GTA Online. To celebrate the launch, the Lowriders: Custom Classics Event Week is now live, with some special week-long deals, plenty of Double GTA$ & RP opportunities, a #customclassics Snapmatic contest with a GTA$1M prize, exclusive Social Club merchandise sweepstakes, and the official Rockstar Broadcast livestream later today featuring all of the new content alongside special guests.


Every day this week there's a different way for you to earn Double GTA$ & RP across various modes and missions via a featured Playlist, accessible directly from the GTAV launch screens.

  • Friday March 18th through Sunday March 20th - Sumo
  • Monday March 21st -  Land Races 
  • Tuesday March 22nd - Keep The Pace
  • Wednesday March 23rd - Relay
  • Thursday March 24th - Offense Defense

If you complete the Playlist, and want to replay it to earn more Double GTA$ & RP, there's no need to restart the game! You can find the Playlist again via the Rockstar Playlists section of the GTA Online pause menus.


Building out your prized collection of Lowriders with the Vapid Slamvan Custom, Dundreary Virgo Classic or Willard Faction Custom Donk may require some storage solutions that don't come flat-packed. Luckily the fine folks at Dynasty 8 Properties are offering 25% off all Properties with a 10-car garage. Simply hit the Internet icon on your iFruit, find the Dynasty 8 advert at the top of the page and choose the space and location best suited for your new additions.


While beautiful hardware to look at, the brand new Compact Rifle and Double Barrel Shotgun won't do you much good when empty. Make sure you visit Ammu-Nation for 50% off Rifle and Shotgun Ammo all this week - you'll need it to unload on anyone that tries to mess with your wheels.


The Compact Rifle and Double Barrel Shotgun are both single-handed weapons, ideal for drive-bys from the handlebars of a Motorcycle. To make the most of this awesome ability, enjoy 25% off ALL Motorbikes in GTA Online from now through the 24th. Visit the in-game websites for Legendary Motorsport and Southern San Andreas Super Autos, and pick up the hog(s) that tickle your fancy.


With three new custom vehicles available as part of Benny's spring roll-out, time to make sure you have your Slamvan, Virgo Classic and Custom Donk fully locked and lowered. Spend a week at Benny's to take advantage of 75% discounts on all Bobbleheads, Column Shift Levers and Plaques, and put the coup de grâce on your latest ride.


After you've worked hard on customizing your new ride, be sure to take a Snapmatic of your pride and joy and enter it into the official Lowriders: Custom Classics Snapmatic Contest by tagging it with #customclassics on Social Club. GTA$1,000,000 will be awarded to the five photographers whose beauteous and clever snaps best represent what the lowrider lifestyle is all about, whether it's tricked out wheels or pairing a new High Top haircut with your dapper new streetwear ensemble. Valid entries are those published from this past Tuesday till end-of-day this Sunday March 20th and have the "#customclassics" tag on Social Club. For official rules, visit here.


You're already living like a "G" in GTA Online, so don't miss the opportunity to embody it 24/7 with our latest Social Club giveaway, chock full of gear that reps everything about the classic Sunday Driver livestyle. Five lucky winners will receive a CD copy of The Alchemist and Oh No's Welcome to Los Santos to roll around your neighborhood listening to, a beautiful chrome GTAV Zippo Lighter, GTAV and Rockstar Keychains, and a GTAV Air Freshener to ensure there's no stank in your low-low. To sweeten the pot, the chosen ones will also get their hands on the Grotti Polo Shirt, a Los Santos T-shirt and some official Rockstar and GTAV Stickers for good measure. Take yourself to the Social Club Events Page now for a shot at this engine-revving package.


Tune in today at 6pm ET to the official Rockstar Games channels on Twitch and YouTube for the official Rockstar Broadcast event livestream. We'll be welcoming very special in-studio guest GTA fans: comedian Carly Aquilino, her Girl Code co-star and Hot 97's own Nessa and YouTuber & food critic Daym Drops - joining Lazlow and the Rockstar Broadcast team to play the new SUMO mode, have some Destroy Last Place Races in the new vehicles, and more. This is sure to be a fast, loose and hilarious-as-hell stream you will definitely want to be in on.

    How do you get the big rims with this new update?
    • GMSARTOREon March 29 2016, 2:35pmReplyFlag
      Achei fraca a DLC, somente e repetitivamente roupas e carros caros e modos adversários que não acrescentam muito e que pagam mal.
      Gostaria de mais sobrevivencias, missões e Heists.
      Uma DLC Militar ia deixar todos fervorosos!
      Vcs tem que pensar e repensar, pois Gta está fazendo 03 anos e precisa de uma injeção de animo!!! Não me importo com Heist difíceis e muito complicados, desde que paguem bem!!!
      Mas precisamos de novos meios de fazer dinheiro, pois o jogo está cheio de gente que compra e cheta conta no ps3 e migram para o ps4, assim fica muito chato o jogo!
      Desta vez fiz meu comentário de forma respeitosa e espero que vcs da Rockstar me ouçam, publiquem e que juntos possamos melhor esse incrível jogo!!!

          • CIassiqueon March 25 2016, 9:37amReplyFlag
            @Zee187em A % sign on or in Los Santos Customs? Wat?
            Also, the disappearing license plate issue has always been here. You can get all your license plates back if you order just one plate again on a random vehicle in your iFruit app.
          • Zee187emon March 25 2016, 9:39amReplyFlag
            @CIassique Yeah, there's a discount on everything from top to bottom. I've never lost my plates before I paid 100k for em all
          • CIassiqueon March 25 2016, 9:43amReplyFlag
            @Zee187em No worries, just order back just one plate from your iFruit app. It's free. You pay $100.000 for having the plate available, and if an issue like this occurs, you can order it back for free.

            Yes, it would be great if you picked up a random vehicle, and see the upgrade prices.

            I'm watching YEARDLEY DIAMOND right now rip and came across a video he made of tha death race mod but ROCKSTAR I think it would be dope if we could get customize cars like putting armor Windows and bulletproof plates on it guns etc.... Or another idea....

            BLAINE COUNTY, PALETO BAY is a waste, there's never any players out there And r* should promote the area with a new mod shop introducing OFF-ROAD, LIFT KITS BIG TRUCKS, JEEPS, AND DUNE BUGGYYYYS, ever watch professional dune buggy climbing holy shi* but just some thoughts

            And we know how rockstar love adversary modes well a DEMOLITION DERBY like saints row 2 had but gta5 will be better, put minim damage on the players cars i guess and get upgrades for your demo car more you win demo derby matches more upgrades u unlock

              @Rip2Pac7297 from time to time players do play in that area, but yes the majority of players play in the lower los santos region. and it woud be cool to see benny branch out again, and offer a variety of off road mods. also I would like to see the option for the bf injection to be customized at benny's, any vw guys on here?

                      @bobo197c Elegy RH8 - is free, and the fastest sports car once you learn how to drive it.
                      Turismo - Cheap supercar (500,00) and can compete with the others
                      Kuruma (standard) - very good rally / offroad car and 4 seats.

                      1970 Pontiac Firebird = Imponte Nightshade

                      @DBlackFX ONLY the taillights resemble the Firebird on the Nightshade, Nothing else.
                    • DBlackFXon March 25 2016, 11:40amReplyFlag
                      @iRock_Star I'm sure you already know by now that most cars in GTA are a mix of different cars. The Nightshade is a mix between the Firebird and Camaro; that's why it's called the "Imponte". The "Imponte" brand is the equivalent of Pontiac. Yes, part of the car looks like a 1970s Camaro, however, the overall body resembles a Firebird (and a Camaro).

                      The Nightshade is R*'s version of a 1970 Pontiac, so you're not going to see another '70 Firebird. If you want a different Firebird, then you can get the Imponte Phoenix (1977 Pontiac Firebird).

                        @medicaljet0845 Easier to make money...? LOL, so Heists, VIP missions, jobs (missions, adversary modes, survivals, captures, ect.), Freemode Events, and robing stores is not enough?
                        Just for the note, you can earn $600k if you do VIP missions with a friend in a friend-only session. and you can earn even more if you have a decent heist team.
