GTA Celebrates Valentine’s Day with a Flaming ZZ Top Car
Happy Valentine’s Day, Grand Theft Auto fans. Rockstar has a special gift for GTA 5 players: a flaming version of a hot rod very similar to ZZ Top’s Eliminator. And that’s not all; players across all platforms are in line for a variety of discounts and in-game bonuses in honor of the holiday.
The Vapid Hustler is GTA 5’s new vehicle of the week. The shopped up old Ford was introduced just in time for a fire-hot holiday of love with blazen with ’80s flame action. Like any good Valentine’s Day gift, it has a price and is available for purchase from Legendary Motorsport.
The new car isn’t exactly a gift, but Rockstar does have a few things to give away. Players have a window over the holiday weekend to earn double GTA$, now through February 19. The romantically-themed playlist gets players in the mood with titles such as “Till Death do us Part.”
In-game love nests, Valentine’s Day-themed clothing, and other items will be on sale as well. Several vehicles will be available for a 25 percent discount during the holiday promotion, though some, such as the Nagasaki Shotaro motorcycle, are only available for purchase after completing a round on the holiday playlist.
There are also special rewards for completing the Premium Race of the week, Turbine. Participating in the race earns triple RP, and all players who finish in the top three can earn a special GTA$ payout. Players who log in to the game on Friday, February 16, can claim a special GTA$ award, further details to be announced on the game’s official website day of the promotion.
