The fastest cars in GTA Online are some of the most prized possessions for GTA Online players looking to flex their wealth a bit in 2022. Whether it's for rushing through Heist prep, completing time trails, or just racing randoms on the streets of Los Santos, a fast car is essential. So it makes sense that owning one of the fastest can make long drives in missions or heist prep that much more efficient.
Building yourself a garage filled with the best vehicles is undeniably a big appeal for many players, and if it's a prestige collection you're after, speed surely should be a major factor. Plus, with new amped up version of the game on the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S, there's a great opportunity to make your in-game hardware match the quality of your real life setup.
There's no shortage of cars in GTA Online, but your Ocelot and Pfister naturally set you back further than your Voodoos and Scorchers. The speed and handling boost you get is worth the money, though. The fastest cars in GTA Online are also among the best you can use for any situation, even if you have to save up for a while to get them.
So with that in mind, we present to your our run-down of the five fastest cars in GTA Online.
- Ocelot Pariah
- Grotti Itali RSX
- Pfister 811
- Principe Deveste Eight
- Lampadati Corsita

The Fastest Cars in GTA Online
There's no exact community consensus on which single car is the fastest in GTA Online. However, these cars consistently rank the highest, regardless of whether you're measuring for lap time or top speed
- Top Speed - 136.00 mph 218.87 km/h
- Cost - $1,420,000 (Legendary Motorsport)
Fully upgraded, the Ocelot Pariah is almost certainly the single fastest car in GTA Online. Though Rockstar haven't officially commented on the matter, there might be a clue in the name. "Pariah" certainly has negative connotations, but how else would you expect this infamously sardonic developer to denote a car that stands apart from the rest? Fancy grabbing it for yourself? Well you can, direct from Legendary Motorsport.
Grotti Itali RSX
- Top Speed - 135.30 mph 217.74 km/h
- Cost - $3,465,000 (Legendary Motorsport)
Inspired by the real-world Ferrari SF90 Stradale, the Grotti Itali RSX sports car is by far the priciest on this list. It's worth it both in terms of style and speed, however. It's a strong contender for the title of fastest car in GTA Online: the Ocelot Pariah beats it by the minuscule margin of 0.7 mph. A pricy pick for sure, you can grab this from Legendary Motorsport.
- Top Speed - 132.50 mph 213.24 km/h
- Cost - $1,135,000 (Legendary Motorsport)
The top two cars on this list are both sports vehicles, so the Pfister 811 can still boast the fastest speeds for any supercar class vehicle in the game. Its primary real-world inspiration is the Porsche 918 Spyder, but despite this impressive pedigree, it won't hurt your wallet nearly as much as the Ferrari-inspired Grotti Itali RSX. You can either grab it from Legendary Motorsport just like the RTX, making it even more tempting.
Principe Deveste Eight
- Top Speed - 131.75 mph 212.03 km/h
- Cost - $1,795,000 (Legendary Motorsport)
Another supercar, the Principe Deveste Eight loses out to the Pfister 811 as fastest-in-class by just 0.75 mph. It's based on the Devel Sixteen, a concept hypercar which has yet to see the light of day in real life. So if you've ever wanted to drive a semi-mythical supercar, getting hold of a Principe Deveste Eight in GTA Online is your best chance. You can pick this up at Legendary Motorsport!
- Top Speed - 131.30 mph 211.31 km/h
- Cost - $1,795,000 (Legendary Motorsports)
The most recent addition to this list, the Lampadati Corista was added to the game with the GTA Online Criminal Enterprises Update. A sleek sports car that's not too pricey for the average active player, this is a great option if you're looking to stay up to date with the latest cars while also keeping things fast.
Fastest car in GTA Online: how it's measured
The question of which car in GTA Online is the fastest is not as clear-cut as you might think. There's no official data from Rockstar on which cars have the highest top speeds, so the community have taken it upon themselves to work it out. It's undeniably a lot of fun to do it this way, but it does lead to a bit of variation in the results.
We're using the top speeds recorded by YouTuber Broughy1322, who's carried out a methodical speed test of every high-performance car in the game. (There's even a methodology document here if you're interested.) While the resulting numbers are doubtlessly accurate, it's worth bearing in mind that some players have conducted similar tests and come away with slightly different results.
However, what everyone can agree on is that to achieve top speed, a car needs to have its Engine Monitoring System (EMS) fully upgraded. There are four levels of upgrades, which can set you back up to around $2,300 apiece for high-end cars like the ones on this list. At the fourth and final upgrade level, maximum acceleration will be around 15% higher than the base level.
Needless to say, all measurements for the fastest car in GTA Online are based on fully upgraded models.
If you're going to be dropping the best part of ten million in-game dollars on these cars, you'll need a lot of cash. Check out our tips and tricks for making big money in GTA Online to fund your expensive toy collection.
