The Ruston is the epitome of class and luxury in GTA Online. Equipped with a powerful engine, this open-top car leaves many of its competitors in the dust, especially on the fast lane. Its acceleration is beyond impressive and its handling barely seems to require any input.

#4 Dewbauchee Rapid GT
Recorded at a top speed of 119.50 mph (192.32 km/h), the Rapid GT is one of the fastest sports cars in GTA Online.

Recorded at a top speed of 117.75 mph (189.50 km/h), the Banshee behaves like a ball of lightning when unleashed. Moreover, the car hosts great acceleration and nippy handling, making for the ultimate Grand Theft Auto ride.
The Banshee costs $105,000 and can be purchased from Legendary Motorsport and customized at Benny's Original Motor Works.
#2 Benefactor Schafter V12
Recorded at a top speed of 124.25 mph (199.96 km/h), the Benefactor Schafter V12 is one of the very few cars in GTA Online that goes toe-to-toe with Adder, which is second to none.
