Cunning Stunts: Special Vehicle Circuit is a content update for Grand Theft Auto Online, released on March 14, 2017.
"The next Title Update, coming in March will introduce an all-new style of Stunt Races specifically designed to the extraordinary abilities of GTA Online Special Vehicles: the Rocket Voltic, the Ruiner 2000 and the Blazer Aqua. Each set of Races will play to the super powers of its respective vehicle so expect to launch across massive gaps at rocket-fueled speed in Rocket Voltic Races, seamlessly shred through land and sea in the Blazer Aqua, and free-fall into vehicular base jump style Races with the Ruiner 2000.
Creators will also get the chance to craft their own Races for these vehicles, so expect loads of insane Voltic, Ruiner and Blazer mayhem from the community this spring."
The update expands upon both the Import/Export and Cunning Stunts content, adding new Special Vehicle-based stunt races, designed specifically for the Ruiner 2000, Rocket Voltic and Blazer Aqua. A creator for these races was also be added in the update, alongside 20 Rockstar-made stunt races. Also, a high-end supercar, an open-top sports car, and two classic cars became available for purchase.
The Adversary Mode, Land Grab, became available to play.
