Riding the asphalt in a blaze of glory, def9779 showcases the Stunt-ready Obey Omnis in full, scorching triumph as it makes its mark on the road.

Winner by Basimatic

Basimatic's jubilant snapshot neatly sums up the classic phrase "to the victor go the spoils". With not one but two Annis RE-7Bs on display and the Jock Cranley Black Jumpsuit making an appearance amid the celebrations, it's a tantalizing glimpse of what awaits a winner.

Walk-away action shots don't come more explosive than this. Against a fireworks display of a flaming Declasse Burger Shot Stallion, Bravado Redwood Gauntlet, Vapid Piswasser Dominator and a cluster of bikes blasting skywards behind them, greatler's trio of racers take it all in stride.

Rockstar Fan Art Gallery: GTA in a Bottle, 8-Bit Bully, Red Dead: The Board Game and More

Posted on July 28 2016, 1:01pm | Author: R* X | Filed Under: Games

The week's gallery of outstanding Rockstar-inspired fan art captures San Andreas' maritime scenery in a bottle, some gender-bending character imaginings from the prolific and talented Grobi-Grafik, an impressively detailed student-made board game based on Red Dead Redemption, plus lots more. Be sure to follow us on Twitter and Instagram, where we feature great fan creations on the regular. As always, if you've got some fantastic fan art or Snapmatics to share, be sure to drop your work in the comments below for the Social Club community to appreciate.

Deep Sea Adventures
by oathDCR

Cleverly melding multiple Snapmatics with a bit of inspired Photoshop work, longtime community member oathDCR magically bottles up the life aquatic of San Andreas.

GTA V Fan Art by Matt Slater

Australian multimedia designer Matt Slater fashioned this pleasantly kitschy ad campaign for the Karin Futo and Vapid Bullet. Lovely in its simplicity, but don't miss the sweet details to be found here - from their custom tires to their signature decals and stripes.

Board Game
 by Daniel Steel

Some impressive planning was put into this original and wonderfully detailed Red Dead Redemption inspired board game made by UK-based design student Daniel Steel. In the board game's design, players move their miniature trains around the circuit of winding plastic train tracks on the board, competing as they land at stops with questions and challenges until the first player reaches the star in the center - which Daniel cites as representing both the winner's star badge and as a very sweet homage to Rockstar that we're honored by. 

Lester by Grobi-Grafik

Heading back to his roots, ubiquitous fandom artist Grobi-Grafik reminds us of where he started with this awesome gender-bending imagining of Lester, drawn after recently replaying GTAV again. With cane, asthma pump, and up-to-no-good side gaze, Grobi nails one of the best behind-the-scenes criminals around.


Max Payne by Grobi-Grafik

Played it again a few days ago, still the best shootout-porn out there.” Grobi continues his Rockstar replays and this art series with a Ms. Payne who channels not only the gruff protagonist himself but also evokes a bit of Furiosa and Ellen Ripley to boot.

wpap Trevor by d32na

Desna Ikhsandra aka d32na proudly embraces his native Indonesia's WPAP art movement (Wedha's Pop Art Portrait - as pioneered by famed artist Wedha Abdul Rasyid) and here gives the signature geometric multi-color treatment to Trevor’s familiar, mean mug.

Birdie, Jester, Lee, and Lady East by Charlie Dunn

Charlie Dunn, AKA @iChazzer on Twitter, marries multiple action-packed Snapmatics with dramatic poses of his Crewmates' GTA Online characters to do the UNIT chaotic justice.

by JamesMason0

A woman who is so narcissistic that she has a giant portrait of herself in her living room.JamesMason0 recreates one of his favorite GTAV characters in this 3D portrait of hot headed lawyer, Debra.

Money and Love by Jackce-Art

No romance without finance. Marce Esquivel aka Jackce-Art hooked up fellow DeviantArtist Aaliyah Lloyd aka AgentPrettyBoy with this commissioned piece portraying her original character as the paramour of Los Santos billionaire Devin Weston.


GTA Online: Chrissy by ArtRN

French artist ArtRN uses Black Ink and Photoshop to create a very interesting, almost stained glass styled incarnation of their GTA Online character, Chrissy.

Back in December, we featured Hoyb’s 8bit style version of Claude Speed. Now that it’s been nearly a decade since Jimmy Hopkins first stomped and skated about Bullworth Academy's campus, Hoyb releases another retro gaming style rendition of a classic character from the Rockstar Games repertory.

Dead End Alley by Juan Martinez

Directly inspired by 'Dead End Alley' off the Red Dead Redemption Soundtrack, Chicago-based illustrator Juan Martinez painted this dramatic scene of John Marston purposefully approaching a stranger on the frontier.

Play 5 New GTA Online: Cunning Stunts Races Today + New Vehicles, Bonuses and More

Posted on July 26 2016, 7:52am | Author: R* Q | Filed Under: Games

Today, five new Stunt Races join the roster of GTA Online: Cunning Stunts, taking you and your appetite for high-flying, daring, stunting action everywhere from the peaks of Mount Chiliad to the shores of Vespucci. And next week, the official launch of the Stunt Race Creator tool will harness the talents of the amazing Creator community to usher in a whole new era of player-made mayhem. Check out a brief overview of this week's new Stunt Races below, and read on for details on three new vehicles, this week's bonuses and more.

Chiliad (Super)
Mount Chiliad has inspired artists, hippies and death cults for generations, but until now it's offered precious little for the key Los Santos demographic: reckless Super car enthusiasts. All that changes with this towering Stunt Race over the iconic peak of San Andreas.

H200 (Sport)
After a long day in the office hoping the IT guy won't check your search history, there's nothing more invigorating than the touch of the ocean breeze and the smell of salt water as it washes over a race track and floods your engine. Stunt Race for Sports cars. Pro tip: bring your bikini bottoms.

Over the Bridge (Bike)
Sure, 2000cc superbikes weren't designed to spend this much time flying through the air above industrial docklands, but every step of evolutionary progress is tough on the pioneers. Jump-heavy Point to Point Stunt Race.

Vespucci (Super)
The Los Santos coastline is about so much more than golden sand, contaminated water and steroid abuse. It's also a perfect backdrop for laps of a winding Stunt Race where any mistake will send you and your million dollar Super car to the bottom of the sea. Hey, it beats the Ferris wheel.

The Wave (Bike)
Who said you have to venture out into the middle of the Pacific in a force ten gale to feel so seasick you want to die? That special inside-out feeling is available right here on this coastal Stunt Race for Bikes.

Three new vehicles, the Bravado Sprunk Buffalo, MTL Dune and Vapid Contender, have also been added to GTA Online today. Tackle Stunt Races with Sprunk guzzling pride in the branded livery-clad Buffalo, or dial up your friends at Pegasus to motor through the Blaine County off-road in the MTL Dune. The Contender offers formidable size and balanced suspension to tackle a variety of terrains - an asset for active Executives and VIPs.

PREMIUM RACE: H200 (Friday 7/29 - Sunday 7/31)
This weekend's Premium Race is the new "H200" Stunt Race for Sports class cars. Ante up and try to take down all comers in a mad dash for that GTA$100,000 top prize.

From Wednesday July 27th through Friday July 29th, ALL Stunts Series Races will dish out Double GTA$ and RP. In addition to being accessible from the pink Stunt Series blips on the map, you can jump into the Stunt Series directly right on the GTAV loading screen. High rollers, keep an eye out for a Premium Race this weekend, where you can ante up and try to take down all comers in a mad dash for that GTA$100,000 top prize.

You can add to your racing wardrobe this week with the flamboyant Gold Jumpsuit, available just by logging in to GTA Online at any point between now and Monday, August 1st. Add some color to your fleet with 20% off all vehicle Resprays and Neons. And for those who like to grab sustained air-based transportation, the Buckingham Nimbus Jet and Volatus helicopter are both 30% off at Elitás Travel. 

New Stunt Races and Vehicles Added to GTA Online: Cunning Stunts

Posted on July 19 2016, 5:43am | Author: R* Q | Filed Under: Games

Try out the new Ocelot Lynx in Zebra, one of six brand-new Stunt Races added today to GTA Online: Cunning Stunts.

The release of Cunning Stunts last week turned GTA Online racing upside-down, and now this week it expands to include six new adrenaline-pumping Races and 3 more stunt-ready vehicles. 

The Super, Muscle, Sports, Bikes and Off-Road classes can compete, plummet and get airborne through rings of fire in a new collection of Races taking place throughout Los Santos and Blaine County:

Afterburner (Bikes)
There was a time when jumping through a wreath of flame on a poorly engineered chopper was enough to give even the most jaded patriot a semi. Those simple days are gone, but apply the same formula a thousand feet above an urban area in the middle of the night and you stand a decent chance of a sudden rush of blood to the crotch. Spectacular Stunt Race for Bikes.

Go up, over, around and through in Double Loop.

Double Loop (Super)
You can never have too much of a good thing, especially when that thing is a gravity-defying loop-the-loop over Fort Zancudo. Kiss your already fragile grip on the laws of physics goodbye on this intense Stunt Race for Super cars.

Forest (Bikes)
The great woodlands of San Andreas are one of our most bountiful resources, providing an endless supply of endangered timber, plenty of discreet hideaways for doomsday cults, and now some of the most suicidal dirt bike jumps in the country. Stunt Race for Bikes.

See what the view from the top really looks like with the new Western Cliffhanger.

High Flier (Bikes)
Time to ditch the private jet, saddle up, and learn a thing or two about corporate dominance with this Stunt Race for bikes through, around and over almost every skyscraper in central LS.

Trench II (Muscle)
Are you susceptible to paranoia? Feel like the walls are closing in? Often have the sense you're trapped with no escape? Come play this Stunt Race for Muscle cars and give your neuroses something to really latch onto.

Zebra (Sports)
A few massive slingshots and vertical drops around Mount Chiliad will play havoc with a full stomach. Time to skip lunch... and breakfast... and to pack a change of underwear. Point to Point Stunt Race for the Sports class.

The Declasse Drift Tampa, one of the three vehicles added to GTA Online today.

The livery-clad racing fleet also expands today with the addition of the Ocelot Lynx, Declasse Drift Tampa and Western Cliffhanger, growing the Sports and Motorcycle classes. And for high-stakes racing aficionados, a new Premium Race popping up over the weekend will put your best Sports cars to the test in Zebra (look for the yellow blip at Legion Square).

The new Ocelot Lynx, available from Legendary Motorsport.

Expand your collection of stunting attire with the Silver Jumpsuit which comes complete with matching helmet. This unlock is free this week and will appear in the Special Items in your Wardrobe as soon as you log-in. Make sure you log-in before July 25th to redeem!

The 20% discount on all Garages & Properties with Garages continues this week – just what you need to accommodate the 3 new vehicles releasing with this update. If you’re already fully maxed out on room in your garages, don’t forget you can always use your second character (and the shared bank account) to open up to 5 more garages, and 50 more parking spaces.

Where last week’s bonuses were all about performance upgrades, this week it’s all about aesthetics with 20% off Spoilers, Wheels, Tire Smoke, Skirts, Exhausts and Horns. Perfect for making sure your brand new Ocelot Lynx or Declasse Drift Tampa is a show-er and not just a go-er.

Death-defying drops, audacious overtakes and white-knuckle wall rides are all in a day's work for the stunters of Los Santos. Thanks to Cunning Stunts, racing has well and truly been taken to the next level.

There's been no shortage of awesome clips, GIFs and snaps showcasing the new content. We've rounded just a few great ones for you below, so buckle up and check out what the GTA Online Community has been up to so far as you get ready for more stunt-ready vehicles and wild original Races coming out this week:

After kitting out the new Desert Raid and RE-7B with his signature green Crew color, Jelly puts his new Super car to the test in epic fashion, grabbing the W on the Downtown Loop and East Coast Stunt Races.

Vikkstar123 and The Sidemen explore the dizzying heights of Maze Bank Ascent before trying their luck with the Western Gargoyle on Vinewood Downhill in this hilarious clip. Enjoy as they try to prevent JJ from winning at all costs.

Cool guys don't look at explosions, and Sights Ov Gta is no exception to the rule. Clearly up to no good, Sights flees the scene in style on his shiny new Western Gargoyle.

A smart and smooth overtake leaves two competitors for dust as ScavengerX3 and their Progen Tyrus quite literally live life on the edge.

Amazing Recovery from GrandTheftAutoV

Just when it seemed all hope was lost, Kappamari pulls it back from the brink with an utterly fantastic save on the devious downhill portion of Plummet to put themselves back in contention. 

An unconventional shortcut proves fruitful for self-professed "God of Needles" TezzaMcJ, who avoids the traffic to storm from 6th to 1st in a matter of seconds.


A photo posted by Grand Theft Auto V (@gtafiveonline) on

Proud new RE-7B owner gtafiveonline holds on to his Annis after carefully navigating a ring of fire above the streets of LS.

Icadrian's quick reflexes and a timely nudge from a more unfortunate opponent result in the slick avoidance of a collision and a neat side-flip flourish.

Happy coincidence or well-timed, cunning tactic? Either way, redditor Pho3nixR3mix's cheeky tail-swing puts paid to any dreams of victory their fellow racer may have been clinging on to.

Buckle up and prepare to experience Southern San Andreas from a whole new perspective.

Today, Cunning Stunts takes GTA Online racing to epic new heights with a series of 16 brand-new, high-octane Stunt Races that feature everything from winding tubular tracks amongst Los Santos’ tallest skyscrapers to technical courses through canyons, over water and across the desert. Stunt Races utilize ramps, loops, wall rides, tubes, raised tracks and dynamic objects for a radically new take on GTA Online racing.

This is unlike anything you’ve seen before: tracks coiling up into the sky, skyscraper jumps, turbo-boosted corkscrews at 20,000 feet... and that’s before you get to the giant bowling pins and the rings of fire.


Races run the gamut with unique locations across San Andreas and feature harrowing heights, incredible speeds and a dazzling spectacle of fireworks, lights, sounds and stomach-churning twists and turns. Rockstar-created Stunt Races at launch include:

Canyon Crossing | City Air | Downtown Loop | Duel | East Coast | Maze Bank Ascent | Nightlife | Over and Under | Plummet | Racing Alley | Rally | Splits | Threading the Needle | Trench I | Turbine | Vinewood Downhill

For elite level racers seeking more high-stakes matchups, Cunning Stunts also features new Premium Races where you can compete against seven opponents for winner-take-all glory, placing your bets and putting faith in your skills for a chance at prize payouts bigger than any other race. And while there may not be any GTA$ for second place, all competitors are rewarded with Triple RP for completing a Premium Race. To keep the competition sharp and balanced among the racing elite, Premium Races are locked to a specific vehicle or vehicle class and all competitors are required to own the vehicle or a vehicle within the set class. These races are also only available for a limited time – keep an eye on the Newswire for weekly schedules. From now through Monday, July 18th, enter the yellow Premium Race blip at Legion Square, shell out your entry fee, and take on seven rivals who all reckon they have what it takes in that day's particular scheduled Race:

You may be little more than a blur, but that’s no reason not to look the part.

There's also 50 new tattoos and lots of new features - including new helmet visor animations and a complete re-tooling of the Player Interaction Menu which includes the ability to choose your default Racing Outfit.


Over the next three weeks, look for more Stunt Races and vehicles to be added to GTA Online as part of Cunning Stunts, culminating in the release of the Stunt Race Creator on August 2nd, which will give the amazingly talented GTA Online Creator community the opportunity to tap into hundreds of Stunt Props along with new features and improvements to forge the most outrageous stunt tracks of their dreams.


Pay homage to Jock Cranley’s glory days as a stuntman by unlocking the exclusive Black Jumpsuit which bears his name. Simply log-in to GTA Online any time this week and your Black Jumpsuit will be automatically added to the Special Items in your character’s Wardrobe. This is the perfect outfit for staring down your enemies on the starting grid of one of the new Stunt Races, or for enjoying the view from your Nagasaki BF400 as you sail through a fiery ring on your way to victory.

We’re looking for 5 cunning Snapmatics featuring the brand new vehicles and races to feature right here on the Rockstar Newswire as well as across Rockstar’s official Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and G+ pages. The 5 successful photographers will all win themselves GTA$1,000,000 to put towards their next photoshoot in-game.

Further Adventures in Finance and Felony: Your Guide to Organizational Behavior

Posted on July 11 2016, 11:46am | Author: R* Q | Filed Under: Games

In addition to trafficking Special Cargo across Los Santos, new opportunities for graft and thievery in Further Adventures in Finance and Felony come in the form of added VIP Work and Challenges for VIPs and their Bodyguards. While CEOs enjoy all the benefits of being a VIP, including earnings from their employees and Special Cargo initiatives, Bodyguards and Associates receive a lucrative salary for employment and bonuses for participating in Work and Challenges.


For newly minted CEOs and VIPs, you’ll be able to instigate VIP Work for your Organization - a series of co-operative Jobs that are completed in Freemode. VIP Work is launched via the SecuroServ VIP option in the Interaction Menu. Bodyguards & Associates will be informed that they’re needed via text message or an invite sent to the SecuroServ App. VIP Work offers plenty of chances to make GTA$ and rack up substantial RP, along with opportunities for rival Organizations to ambush you for a slice of the pie. Here are some tips to keep your Organizational goalposts across new VIP Work within reach:

In Headhunter, consider attacking targets from a distance as opposed to alerting them to your presence.


Objective: Work alongside your Organization to take down multiple well-guarded stationary and mobile targets across the map against a time limit.

To get your hit squad moving like a well-oiled machine, assign targeting roles early on and follow these pointers.

  • All of your prospective targets and their guards have increased health and armor and can easily floor you if you approach on foot. To avoid alerting stationary targets to your presence, consider attacking from a distance and get the drop on them. Leave as soon as the kill is confirmed, as your Wanted level will go up immediately.
  • When chasing a target in a vehicle, track their movements and consider ambushing them head on; pursuing them from behind can result in a hail of incoming bullets.
  • Divide and conquer. With multiple targets on the map, sinking all of your resources into the pursuit of a single one is futile. Have your team pair off to cover more ground on moving targets and send a single competent hitman for stationary targets.
  • To prepare for any outcome, keep aerial and assault vehicles at the ready before starting the timer for this Work assignment.
  • Players can remove their wanted level via Lester or by using the VIP/CEO ability “Bribe Authorities.” Note that attacking law enforcement will still merit a wanted level even while “Bribe Authorities” is active.
  • As a Rival player, you can earn rewards for protecting the targets from the attacking Organization.

Once you have successfully delivered the package in Airfreight, make plans for a hasty exit as the Cargobob will be set to self-destruct to cover up any evidence of your illicit operation.


Objective: The Organization must collect a Cargobob and use it to extract a container and deliver it to a designated drop off point.

Assign your best pilot to this task and send the rest along as added muscle. Also a few bits of advice below to help:

  • Every moment your cargo is in transit it may be damaged and lose cash value, so don’t dawdle - make a bee-line for the delivery zone to maximize profit.
  • Scout out the well-guarded area prior to grabbing the cargo and take out not only the guards but also blow up attack vehicles before they can pursue you and put you at a disadvantage.
  • Alternatively, you can kill all guards and have one of your Organization members acquire the attack chopper so you have free air support on your way to the drop zone. 
  • Air support during transport is key, not only will you have a permanent Wanted level of 3 stars during your flight, rival Organizations will also be alerted to your operation and can be rewarded for taking you down.
  • Once you have successfully delivered the package, make plans for a hasty exit as the Cargobob will self-destruct to cover up any evidence of your illicit operation.  
  • Participating players who aren’t in an Organization or are in a Rival Organization will be rewarded with a cut of the container value if the Cargobob carrying it is destroyed.

If your truck catches on fire in Haulage be sure to release it and drive away from the trailer so backing your replacement rig back into the trailer is manageable.


Objective: The Organization must collect a large trailer and deliver it to a drop off with the aid of a semi-truck.

While your big rig is a formidable beast on the open highway, capable of barreling through most pursuing enemies, it would still be wise to follow some of the key tips here.

  • It's certainly a good idea to have armored transport on-hand to fend off pursuing enemies when coming to collect your trailer but if you're coming up short on that front keep a sharp eye out for a fully-armed Karin Technical parked somewhere near the trailer.
  • Attackers' cars may pull in front of your truck to slow you down. Be sure to adjust and tilt your camera view forward a bit to get a good grasp on where they are to better outmaneuver them from obstructing your path.
  • If your truck starts to take on too much damage and is in danger of exploding start making plans to re-route to a new replacement truck as they are marked with blue icons all over your map.
  • Furthermore, if your truck catches on fire and is definitely about to explode be sure to release and drive away from the trailer so backing the new truck into the trailer is manageable without the wreckage of the destroyed semi getting in your way.
  • Consider having an Associate or Bodyguard bring a secondary Hauler as backup in case something goes wrong.
  • If rival Organizations or Freemode players deliver the Cargo, they will receive a cut of the max reward.


VIP Challenges are found under the 'SecuroServ' option in the Interaction Menu, and are initiated by the VIP to create healthy intra-organizational competition and rewards. While the winner of the Challenge will of course receive their dues, as with VIP Work, each Bodyguard taking part receives a participation award of GTA$ and RP for every minute that they spend participating in the Challenge.

Once the Challenge is set, the VIP will have the option to spectate the competing Bodyguards or participate directly.


Objective: All players in the Organization compete to hack the most ATMs within an allotted time limit.

Take the money and run! Grab the fastest mode of transport available and note the following tips for stacking your chips.

  • Watch your back. Put some space between yourself and the other members of your Organization. While hacking you are completely vulnerable to their attacks so keep that in mind before committing to a hacking spot. This will also ensure no-one hacks your ATMs before you do.
  • To that effect, look to disrupt any Organization members you see stopping at ATMs nearby to give yourself a lead on running to the next hack location.
  • Constantly check the map not only to locate the next nearest ATM but to be fully aware of who is near you at all times and consider areas with a higher concentration of ATMs.
  • If you'd like to move about on the map undetected you can call Lester and pay him to take you off Radar, this is particularly useful once you've settled on an ATM.
  • Time is of the essence. You have 60 seconds to complete the ATM hacking sequence before a two star Wanted level is initiated so request the quickest vehicle you have and move swiftly.
  • You will drop cash if you get killed, so stay out of trouble.

In Salvage your stamina and oxygen will run out eventually. Be sure to look for additional rebreather crates to stay underwater longer.


Objective: All players in the Organization are equipped with rebreathers and compete to collect the most checkpoints in a set underwater area.

The life aquatic isn't quite as peaceful as it's made out to be. Read the helpful pointers below before diving in.

  • Using knives against your opponents to keep them from checkpoints is fair game. VIPs and CEOs be sure to turn Friendly Fire ON in your VIP Management options to keep things interesting.
  • You don't need to swim all the way out to the checkpoint area from the shoreline. Keep an eye out on your map for the Seashark icons for a faster trip over.
  • While wearing a rebreather allows you to stay underwater for a much longer period of time, your stamina and oxygen will run out eventually. Be sure to look for additional rebreather crates to stay underwater longer.
  • The checkpoints are spread out over a broad area, there's no shame in swimming to a slightly less occupied area of the circle to let your opponents fight it out as you continue to collect capture points unimpeded.
  • When diving for checkpoints in deeper waters be sure to double-check your oxygen and stamina gauge to be sure you can complete a safe trip down to your mark and back up to the surface again. Don't get greedy or you won't make it back.


Reloading at precisely the right time during a firefight can be the difference between life and death; nobody wants to be caught short with only a few bullets left in the chamber. Fortunately, Ammu-Nation has you covered with a brand new line of Drum and Box Magazine Attachments for 8 of their most potent weapons. These special magazines will increase ammo capacity, giving you more time between reloads and a decided advantage over your lesser-equipped foes.


Now that your Organization has had a few days to get to grips with Special Cargo missions, here are a few tips to keep your operation running smoothly:

  • Take note of other CEOs and Associates in your session via the SecuroServ Special Cargo Network and plan the timing of your Mission carefully.
  • Make sure that you've hired enough Associates of your own to handle the size of the shipment - delivering three Crates for example is higher risk than just one and therefore will require more bodies as far as protection and actual pickup.
  • To actually pick up a Crate, you can either walk over it or, to save time and vulnerability you may also drive your vehicle directly over it - keep in mind you can only hold one Crate at a time.
  • Be prepared for anything - a well-equipped Pegasus Vehicle like the Buzzard Attack Chopper may come in handy. If you do come across any trouble, utilize your CEO abilities in order to avoid the fuzz and hide your Organization and Crate blips to help secure your Special Cargo. 
  • Rival players cannot attack Warehouses but can ambush Special Cargo transport. 
  • The more Cargo you stockpile in a warehouse, the more profit you stand to make. Selling larger amounts will garner interest from wealthier buyers who pay higher prices but also runs a higher risk.

Standing tall, above the world and surveying your domain is where any self-respecting, industrious entrepreneur should be. Taking in a rich sunset landscape as the new luxury Volatus flies alongside, slimsy1901's view from the top sure looks nice.

Don't Miss a Chance!! by Nightrain-G-

Like a scene straight out of a Vinewood blockbuster, Nightrain-G-'s action shot neatly showcases cinematic explosions, highway mayhem and some of the new heavyweight vehicles - there's the Cargobob seizing an opportunity, a MTL Brickade riding passenger and a Savage in hot pursuit.

They say money talks and it doesn't speak clearer than in this cleverly framed scene from maks55amg. Hard-earned, cold cash makes for soft carpeting, as a pair of killer heels take their steps along the corporate criminal ladder.

The Chrome Style Crew pose for a group photo between serious company talks in the boardroom of a swanky Executive Suite. With weapons and Special Cargo decorating the Table Map and the sharp matching suits and shades, there's no denying this Crew means business.

For those hankering after a taste of the good life, Venom81ED's shot of 'The Office View' presents all that an Executive Suite (and lifestyle) has to offer. From the Boardroom Table Map to neat stacks of Special Cargo ready to be shifted and the glorious skyscraper views afforded to those with the time to stop and admire them... 

Other Honorable Mentions...

  • Credit? No, No, No by --EVOLUT7ON-- - A busy CEO may have a number of issues to sort out, but cash flow isn't one of them in this entertaining snapshot.
