If you have played GTA IV: The Ballad of Gay Tony, you will remember the face of Yusuf Amir, the biggest real estate developer of Liberty City. He is now coming to Los Santos with a new business plan and this time around, you will steal, strip, and sell the most in-demand vehicles as part of Yusuf’s latest venture. Working alongside his cousin Jamal, you will plan and execute intricate, high-stakes robberies under the cover of a new shop called Red’s Auto Parts. It is a new purchasable salvage yard where you will manage everything and sell the best vehicles to Yusuf or salvage the boosted vehicles for parts.
If you love drifting then you are in luck because the new Drift Races are all about drifting and racing at the same time. In these races, you will drive specially tuned vehicles that are modified with drifting in mind. You can unlock these special drifting modifications by taking part in these races.
