Since Cayo Perico is a heavily guarded island there is a huge shift towards planes, helicopters, and boats in this update, but there are still plenty of cool cars in the lineup.

RO-86 Alkonost

  • Type: Military Plane
  • Price: $4,350,000

The deadliest vehicle in the Cayo Perico update besides the Kosatka submarine is the Alkonost strategic bomber, which is based on real-life Russian plane TU-160.

Alkonost carries 50 bombs on board of four different types:

  • Explosive (High damage, wide range)
  • Incendiary (Molotov cocktail effect)
  • Gas (Tear gas effect)
  • Cluster (High single target damage)

The defense mechanisms of this plane make it immune to two consecutive missile attacks. Also, it uses the stealth technology, which makes it completely invisible for the radars.

Overall, RO-86 Alkonost is an excellent strategic bomber, which can be used in a whole variety of missions in GTA Online.

Annihilator Stealth

  • Type: Military Helicopter
  • Price: $3,870,000

By design Annihilator resembles two infamous military helicopters: Black Hawk and Akula.

This is a perfect choice for players who like to go on missions with their friends in cooperative mode. Annihilator can carry up to six players at once, which is great for quick transportation and assaults.

This helicopter is equipped with two powerful machine guns and two types of missiles:

  • Homing missiles are great for destroying vehicles
  • Barrage missiles are sent in a volley that deal with many targets at once

Unfortunately, the defenses on Annihilator are not as strong as those on the Alkonost plane. The helicopter can be easily taken down with a single missile shot. It does have the ability to stealth, though, which makes it a much harder target to deal with.

Pegassi Toreador

  • Type: Amphibious Sports Car
  • Price: $3,660,000

Toreador sports car not only looks cool, but also does some amazing things. It is your personal compact submarine, which can also ride the highways.

The exterior design is based on Lamborghini Marzal, a classic Italian sports car. But the functionality is similar to Stromberg and Deluxo, the submersible vehicles of the past updates.

However, Toreador is superior to both of these models, as it has special booster turbines, which makes it the current fastest submersible car in the game.

On top of that, it’s equipped with machine guns, missile launcher, and torpedo launcher.

Grotti Itali RSX

  • Type: Sports Car
  • Price: $3,465,000

Here is another sports car, but this time a highway-only version. Its exterior is based on the real-life Ferrari SF90, while the interior was inspired by Lamborghini Miura.

Itali RSX is one of the fastest sports cars in the game, although it is quite expensive for a mere sports vehicle. Nonetheless, you can get it a lot cheaper, for about 2.5 million, if you complete the “Collect Moodymann” quest.

If you like collecting these types of cars, then Grotti Itali RSX is a must-have.

Kurtz 31 Patrol Boat

  • Type: Military Boat
  • Price: $2,955,000

This armed patrol boat comes straight from the classic movie “Apocalypse Now”.

It has three Browning machine guns that can slice through any visible vehicle in their sight. This is also a perfect boat for night drives due to high-beam lights and extra spotlights on the front.

Kurtz 31 is another great vehicle for cooperative gameplay, as it can hold four players at a time, which can make any heist job a lot easier and more fun.

Shitzu Longfin

  • Type: Speed Boat
  • Price: $2,125,000

If you want something similar to Kurtz 31 but faster and not as expensive, then Longfin is a fantastic alternative.

It boasts with a terrific maneuverability even in the most narrow and unpredictable areas of a river.

It has the same 4-player capacity as Kurtz 31, but unlike the military boat, Longfin has no weapons on board, which can be less desirable when on a heist job.

Nagasaki Weaponized Dinghy

  • Type: Inflatable Boat
  • Price: $1,850,000

Finally, here is a boat that combines the speed and the maneuverability of Longfin and the weaponry of Kurtz 31.

Its biggest downside is low defenses, which makes it highly vulnerable to a single precise missile shot. But if you put a good gunner at the front turret, who can deal with all incoming missiles, then you should be perfectly fine.

The biggest upside is definitely the price, as there is no other weaponized speed boat in the game being sold for this cheap.
