After laying out some of the details last week, Rockstar Games has now announced more specifics about Grand Theft Auto Online's next update. A total of 20 new Stunt races will be added in the new Cunning Stunts: Special Vehicle Circuit update, which comes out on Tuesday, March 14.

In a post on the Rockstar Newswire, the developer explains that these races were custom-made for the Rocket Voltic, Ruiner 2000, and Blazer Aqua vehicles, with the races making use of those cars' "unique characteristics and abilities."

Also debuting on March 14 will be the new Progen GP1, which looks super-awesome (see it below).

Rockstar also announced that a number of bonuses for GTA Online are now live, including 25 percent off executive offices and executive garages. Additionally, there are now discounts available on special vehicles, though a detailed list was not provided. Finally, players can earn double GTA$ and RP right now in GTA Online's special vehicle missions, while bodyguards and associates will receive double GTA$ for the duration of the promo, which is available until March 13.

Looking ahead, Rockstar will release a new set of adversary modes in GTA Online over the course of the Spring, including one that is a "gallows humor take on dodgeball" mode called Resurrection. There will also be an homage to old-school 2D GTA called Top Down.

Released more than than three years ago, Grand Theft Auto V continues to be popular, regularly making it into the top-seller charts. By the latest count, it has shipped 75 million copies.

@cjtopspin: Only way you get that is to buy the PC version and get the mods for single player heists, unfortunately...
