Top 3 Best Sports Cars For Racing – GTA 5

Last Updated: February 11th, 2020

The following are what I have found to be 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  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. There are also a ton of Sports cars to choose from, and some are very very close in terms of performance, so don’t fret if you want to simply choose a sports car to suit your style or taste.

The most recent GTA V DLV, the Casino update brought us some interesting new additions to our top 3 Sports Cars list.

*Note: The sports cars in the top-3 spot are the TOP 3 for racing in GTA V, and the cars below them were the cars that previously held the same spot and not necessarily reflective of ALL the best sports cars in order of best passed the top 3 spots.

The Ocelot Pariah tops the Sports class for best-racing cars in GTA V., finally beating out the RH8 seen below. This car was released as a part of Rockstars Doomsday Heist update. Even though this car is the best for racing overall, it is pricy, so if you can’t afford it yet, you could always opt for an RH8, which is free.

Elegy RH8 GTA V

What was once the top sports car to race in GTAV, the Elegy RH8 —  this car is absolutely free to purchase on the 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. Even though it is free to purchase, you will have to fully upgrade the car which is the only cost what you really need for the best sports car in GTA V for racing.

The Elegy RH8 is a very quick 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 ways, that is most normal races.

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 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.

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 master 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 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.

    2. AwesomeApples (Apples) says:

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

      1. mAssVodkA says:

        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.

    3. Benjamin Columbus says:

      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.

    come on tell

    what about elegy retro custom though? i prefer it over the rh8 and it still performs really well
    i actually recently won a race with catchup off and slipstream on, i had a 2 second lead in a retro against an rh8 for just about the entire race and they were never able to get in slipstream range
    the retro custom is indeed a little slower in terms of top speed, but the handling is much better and the massive engine upgrades (especially turbo tuning) available make any difference in acceleration marginal
    i notice your lists never include custom versions of things, like for example the muscle car list, sabre turbo should either be separate from sabre turbo custom or replaced by it

  12. PhyryX says:

    Pfister Comet RS? Slightly higher top speed and better braking and traction than Elegy RH8. And even in stock it has excellent accelaration.

    wiow nice
