Top 3 Best Sports Cars For Racing – GTA 5

Last Updated: April 15th, 2017

The following are what I have found to be the the best three cars for racing in Grand Theft Auto 5. You should be able to race relatively well if you choose any of the following cars, however keep in mind that the first one is absolutely free to purchase. All cars are based on fully modded versions of each car, so if you decide to purchase a single car for racing as your top car in the Sports category in GTA V, you should probably pour some cash into fully modding it out.

Top Fastest Sports Cars GTA V1. Best GTA V Sports Car –  Elegy RH8

Elegy RH8 GTA V

The top sports car to race in GTAV in my opinion, is the Elegy RH8. This car is absolutely free to purchase on the Legendarymotorsport.net in game car store, it handles great, it has fantastic acceleration and it’s quite quick once you have it all modded out. For a seasoned racer, I would definitely recommend this car as your primary sports car class for racing.

The Elegy RH8 is the quickest sports car if you are a skilled racer, it’s a good all around car and can definitely come out number one against all other sports cars in races that are not straight aways, that is most normal races.

 Elegy RH8 Stats

  • Acceleration (0-60mph / 0 – 100kmh): 3.5 seconds
  • Top Speed (mph / kph): 197 / 317
  • Engine (Capacity + Layout + Fuel): 3.0 Litre
  • Drivetrain (AWD / FWD / RWD): AWD, 70% FWD / 30% RWD
  • Gearbox (Number + Type): 6
  • Mass (Kg / lb): 1700 / 3748

2. Best GTA V Sports Car – Dinka Jester (Racecar)

Dinka Jester (Racecar) GTA V

This car was a part of the Festive Surprise update and is a Jester with a racing livery from Dinka and can be bought for $350 000 from the Southernsanandreassuperautos.com in game store. This is a super quick sports car and apparently is operated with an electric motor, so there is no loss of power during gear shifts. This allows the Dinka Jester Racecar to have a quick acceleration while this car also proves to be a sturdy car able to take multiple front collisions without destroying the front wheels alignment. This can be a great car for those race tracks with differing turns and un predictable paths due to its fast acceleration.

Dinka Jester (Racecar) Stats

  • Acceleration (0-60mph): 4.5 seconds
  • Top Speed (mph): 158
  • Engine (Capacity + Layout + Fuel): 4.0 Litre
  • Drivetrain (AWD / FWD / RWD): All Wheel Drive
  • Gearbox (Number + Type): 6
  • Mass (lb): 2866

3. Best GTA V Sports Car – Dewbauchee Massacro (Racecar)

Dewbauchee Massacro (Racecar) GTA V Sports Car for Racing.This car can also be purchased at the in game store Southsanandreassuperautos.com, it was also a part of the Festive Surprise update and can be purchased for $385 000. This car is described as a sophisticated, superior, class-obsessed and with more than a little aggression under the hood, this grand tourer from Dewbauchee is as classically British as they come. Raced tuned special edition.

For racing this car has decent traction, however it does take a little bit of getting used to in order to mastering tight corners. It’s quick and can do well when you get used to handling and can be a very good all around car. Learn more about the Dewbauchee Massacro (Racecar).

    hope you’re aware that the car stats stated on southernsanandreassuperautos.com aren’t real. given the real stats, the elegy rh8 handles best but is too slow and has poor acceleration and brakes. if you want to compare the real stats, just look here:

    turns out the racecar massacro has by far the best acceleration of any sports car – which makes it a great car if you can control its power and rather strange handling. the racecar jester is a very well balanced car with good overall stats, but way too little acceleration. and in most cases acceleration wins the race if you can handle the rest – just look at the zentorno beating the entity in almost every race or the akuma beating the bati most of the time.

      Thanks for pointing that out and those links provide some definite insight into the average stats of those sports vehicles.

      Watch Broughy1322. The elegy is 1st, jester racecar 2nd, massacro racecar 3rd. This list is accurate. All of his lists are highly accurate

        thanks for reminding me of this useless comment of mine. i was still an ignorant fool at the time i was writing it and have since watched every single one of broughys “best fully upgraded cars” videos and joined his crew in the process. so please just ignore what i wrote and watch his videos instead 🙂

          Good to see someone actually admit when they were wrong, shows class. Props to you bro

          I’m sorry do you speak fluent sarcasm? Or do you speak the truth? With your username I can only expect the former😅

          1. mAssVodkA says:

            xD you’re right, wasn’t my intention but could very well be sarcasm. rest assured it’s the truth, though 😉 just watch the videos and you’ll see this broughy guy knows what he’s talking about.

      I agree, racing in sports it’s obvious that the massacro r is faster than anything else, by a wide margin.

  4. Gilgamesh says:

    After the Executives and other criminals DLC, i’ve been using and doing very well with the Benefactor Schafter V12. It has normal accel and handling, on par with the masacro or jester, but it’s top speed is well above even some super cars. It just keeps going faster and faster. It is heavier than some so under-steer is a problem but its speed more than makes up for it.

    1. papasmurf4178 says:

      I agree 100% the Schafter V12 is the best once you get to used to its handling. Really good on straight maps, might still go with Elegy on maps with lots of corners.
