New cars in the GTA 5 update
As with every major update Rockstar Games has introduced several new vehicles, available for purchase now. Find on the online store the Karin Everon, the Lampadati Komoda, the Maxwell Asbo, the Maxwell Vagrant and the Vapid Retinue Mk II. For its part, Ubermacht offers you a new luxury SUV, the Rebla GTS.
New vehicles are also available at Warstock Cache & Carry, including a fire truck, a Bugstars van, and a Stockade from Gruppe Sechs.
Radio and other news on GTA Online
A new radio is available now in all vehicles in the Online and History mode of GTA 5: Radio iFruit. Freddie Gibbs, DaBaby and Travis Scott and other current tracks are available in all vehicles in Los Santos.

Currently authorities have only a few leads on his hideout but no further clues on the weapon or the individual.
