On top of that, curious players have also discovered interesting additions in the game files. According to reliable sources, data miners found files with codenames "Go-Kart" and "Car Club". Speculations have that these could be new Vehicle Classes that are coming to GTA Online in the 1.55 update.

According to notorious insider Tez2, the "Car Club" class may be the class that will contain the new Tuners vehicles. This new category will allow players to have races with the exclusive Tuners vehicles. The other class is pretty self-explanatory. We might be getting a dedicated Go-Kart class after the recent releases of the Veto Classic & Veto Modern.

New Robbery Missions

As you may expect, the new Summer Los Santos Tuners update will definitely have the demand for stolen vehicles off the roof. There's a sky-rocketing market for all kinds of vehicles, and of course, the earnings are much better.
