Best Vehicles for Making Money in GTA Online
Inject money making vehicles in your arsenal

Your whip matters!

GTA Online is all about making money and making money efficiently. You wouldn’t want to spend enormous time tediously running around the map getting things done. You’d want to make sure you’re fast and saving time to participate in other various activities. For this, you’re going to need helpful vehicles. 

Money-making vehicles are anything that’ll either allow you to run missions/heists through their purchase, assist you in optimizing your travel time, provide ample protection, and are a supplement to your money-making process as a whole. 

Whether it's racing others, getting heist setups done, or performing VIP work, you’ll eventually keep switching to vehicles that will not bore you and get your money-making ventures done quickly.

This article will guide you about the vehicles that have proven to be the best money-making machines since the launch of GTA Online.


10. Western Company Cargobob

The Cargobob

Military variant price: GTA$ 1,790,000

Jetsam variant price: GTA$ 1,995,000

Its bulky and lousy-looking design sure doesn’t make it an attractive option for making money, and using the Cargobob to travel around is definitely not the fastest or preferred way. But what it lacks in speed, it more than makes up in sheer practicability. 

The flagship feature of the Cargobob is its hook attached underneath. With it, you can basically lift any ground vehicle and transport it across the map.

It’s a great vehicle because:

  • Its hook makes it very useful for delivering Import/Export vehicles, which is a good way for earning money.
  • It can carry 10 people on board.
  • It can sustain considerable bumps. 

Cargobob stats:

  • Speed: 61.00
  • Acceleration: 66.67
  • Handling: 45.00
  • Overall: 57.56

9. Benefactor Krieger

The Krieger

Krieger review

Price: GTA$ 2,875,000

The Benefactor Krieger is the ultimate Supercar that you’ll need to own in order to really flex your wealth in the game and win races in the Super class. It’s based on the fascinating Mercedes-AMG ONE, and it was introduced as part of the Diamond Casino & Resort updates in 2019.

The Krieger’s design is fashionably sleek, and it boasts unique design elements that make it look like a futuristic machine. 

It’s a great vehicle because:

  • It is one of the fastest cars in the game. You can earn good money with it by racing, especially during the weeks when the racing events pay double or triple money.
  • Its hasty acceleration allows it to get a head start in races easily.
  • It is straightforward to handle and doesn’t spin out while cutting sharp corners.

Krieger stats:

  • Speed: 86.81
  • Acceleration: 93.50
  • Braking: 37.33
  • Handling: 100.00
  • Overall: 79.41

8. Ocelot Pariah

The Pariah

Pariah review

Price: GTA$ 1,420,000

The Pariah is the go-to car for racing in the Sports class, the most popular racing class in the game. It’s going to smoke every opponent of yours in straight stretches since it has the highest top speed of any car in the game (Excluding HSW vehicles, exclusive to the PS5’s Expanded and Enhanced).

It’s a great vehicle because:

  • You can earn good money with it by racing, especially during the weeks when the racing events pay double or triple money.
  • It handles well.
  • It’s a decent-looking car.

7. Pegassi Toreador

The Toreador

Toreador review

Price: GTA$ 3,660,000

The Toreador is an outstanding vehicle for carrying out heists, VIP work, and contact missions in the game. Its boost and severely accurate missiles are going to make your job a whole lot easier for earning a few extra bucks here and there.

It’s a great vehicle because:

  • It’s remarkably fast and agile.
  • It can be used as a submarine, with an included sonar.
  • It takes its rocket boost just a second to recharge.

Toreador stats:

  • Speed: 80.48

  • Braking: 33.33
  • Handling: 74.24
  • Overall: 65.76

6. Karin Kuruma (Armored)

The Armored Kuruma

Armored Kuruma review

Standard Price: GTA$ 698,250

Trade Price: GTA$ 525,000 (By completing the Fleeca Job Heist)

If you’ve just begun your criminal journey in Los Santos, then your first priority for the acquisition of an asset should be the Armored Kuruma. This bulletproof vehicle will single-handedly carry you through the ranks of a feared gangster.

The key feature of owning the Armored Kuruma is its ability to protect you from getting shot. The windows on this vehicle will make you immune to taking any damage whatsoever while getting shot by NPCs and other players.

It’s a great vehicle because:

  • It’s a well-rounded Sports car that performs exceptionally while trying to outmaneuver your rivals.
  • The affordable price tag makes it the best value-for-money vehicle in GTA Online.
  • It’s, by miles, the best vehicle to carry out heists, and the safest to execute contact missions.

Kuruma (Armored) stats:

  • Speed: 78.87
  • Acceleration: 77.50
  • Braking: 16.67
  • Handling: 74.24

5. Nagasaki Buzzard Attack Chopper

The Buzzard Attack Chopper

Buzzard Attack Chopper review

Price: GTA$ 1,750,000

If you’re a beginner looking to purchase the first flying vehicle that will aid you in grinding and ranking up quickly, then you should consider getting yourself a Buzzard without even thinking twice. 

One of the best things about the Buzzard is that it’s a CEO vehicle. Once you own a Buzzard, you can call it in for free while registered as a CEO, and it will spawn right next to you like any other personal ground vehicle.

It’s a great vehicle because:

  • For a relatively affordable price tag, the Buzzard won’t put a deep dent in your wallet.
  • The ability to call in the Buzzard practically anywhere, while registered as a CEO, makes earning money way much easier than having to take the road to travel.
  • The fast & agile handling coupled with the armaments on the Buzzard are sufficient for you to get yourself out of hairy situations. 
  • You can carry 3 of your mates on board as well.

Buzzard Attack Chopper stats:

  • Speed: 83.00
  • Acceleration: 87.00
  • Handling: 71.00
  • Overall: 80.33

4. Pegassi Oppressor Mk II

The Oppressor Mk II

Oppressor Mk II review

Standard Price: GTA$ 3,890,250

Trade Price: GTA$ 2,925,000 (By completing 5 Terrorbyte client jobs)

The Oppressor Mk II has a bad reputation for all the right reasons. However, you can make the best use of it by utilizing its flying ability to pace up your money-making grind.

One point to keep in mind is that you need to first own a Nightclub and then a Terrorbyte before you can get your hands on the Oppressor Mk II.

It’s a great vehicle because:

  • It’s a fast and quick form of transportation. 
  • It can be spawned right next to you, within seconds, like any personal ground vehicle. 
  • You can take out your enemies without the risk of taking damage from them.

Oppressor Mk II stats:

  • Speed: 79.41
  • Acceleration: 95.00
  • Braking: 40.00
  • Handling: 63.64
  • Overall: 69.51

3. Benefactor Terrorbyte

The Terrorbyte

Terrorbyte review

Price: GTA$ 1,375,000 – GTA$ 3,459,500

The Terrorbyte is a unique command and operations center. The vehicle itself is an absolute juggernaut that’ll greatly protect you from unwanted attention, but what’s really important is how well it can assist you in making money.  

It’s a great vehicle because:

  • You can launch your other businesses’ supplies/source missions through the onboard computer.
  • You can do client jobs that pay decently.
  • You can purchase and modify Mk II weapons.
  • It’s the storage and modification vehicle for the notorious Oppressor Mk II. 

Terrorbyte stats:

  • Speed: 64.39
  • Acceleration: 40.00
  • Braking: 8.33
  • Handling: 59.09
  • Overall: 42.95

2. Sparrow

The Sparrow

Sparrow review

Price: GTA$ 1,815,000

Hands down, the most lucrative way of earning money in GTA Online is by repeatedly running the Cayo Perico heist, and we all know how much traveling is required for it. The vehicle that’s arguably the backbone of doing that is the Sparrow. A light, fast, and agile helicopter that is the best in its class in terms of practicability. 

A caveat for getting the Sparrow is that it’s a moon pool vehicle for the Kosatka submarine, meaning you need to purchase the Kosatka first in order to use the Sparrow. 

Regardless, doing all the above is undoubtedly worthwhile because: 

  • Once you purchase the Sparrow, you can spawn it immediately next to you from the interaction menu without the need to be registered as a CEO. 
  • The Sparrow’s compact size and responsive controls make it one of the fastest and most agile helicopters in the game. Even better than the Buzzard. 
  • The ability to be stored inside the Kosatka makes the Sparrow powerful in terms of escaping enemies and finding shelter out in the sea.
  • The extent to which the Sparrow aids in making money off the Cayo Perico Heist makes it a truly powerful purchase. 

Sparrow stats: 

  • Speed: 100.00
  • Acceleration: 100.00
  • Handling: 100.00
  • Overall: 100.00

1. RUNE Kosatka

The Kosatka

Kosatka review

Price: GTA$ 2,200,000 – GTA$ 9,085,000

The Kosatka is your go-to option once you decide that you want to live your life underwater and diet on red caviar and navy wine. Well, that’s what the on-board engineer, Pavel, keeps mentioning all the time – he’s a great Chad, to say the least.

The Kosatka is a giant submarine, and it can be equipped with lock-on missiles, torpedoes, and tracking missiles. All of them are pretty deadly. 

The best part of the Kosatka is that it’s also the launch platform for the Cayo Perico Heist; the most lucrative method for earning money, as of now. Plus, it can also store your Sparrow and Toreador; two of the best vehicles in GTA Online.  

To wrap it all up, here are the reasons why it’s the best vehicle on this list:

  • It has the option to let you fast-travel to the opposite end of the map.
  • You can choose it as your spawn location.
  • You can literally hide from everyone once it’s submerged. 
  • Cayo Perico Heist… duh.
  • Pavel calls you Kapitan!

Kosatka stats: 

  • Speed: 46.30
  • Acceleration: 30.88
  • Handling: 0.00
  • Overall: 25.73
