GTA Online: Spend a total of $8,000,000 purchasing vehicles included as part of The Heists Update.   

Through the Heist Update, several vehicles have been added to the game, including armored sedans, fighter jets, and even prison buses. Take note that for this achievement, players must spend a minimum of $8 million on the vehicles included in this update, not their upgrades/modifications. 

Generally, most of the new vehicles are rather expensive, so players with a small pool of money will need to complete various jobs and heists in order to amass $8 million. Also, please take note that the vehicles are not all available right away. Instead, you will need to complete the heists in order to unlock them one by one. Below, there is a complete checklist of all the new vehicles included in the update with the website you can find them on through your in-game phone. Pick and choose whichever vehicles you’d like to own and the achievement should be yours in no time. 

Elitas Travel

  • Velum 5-Seater - $995,000

Legendary Motorsport

  • Casco - $680,000
  • Lectro - $750,000

Warstock Cache and Carry

  • Insurgent Pick-Up - $1,350,000
  • Insurgent - $675,000
  • Hydra - $3,000,000
  • Valkyrie - $2,850,000
  • Technical - $950,000
  • Mule - $32,000
  • Savage - $1,950,000
  • Mesa - $87,000
  • Prison Bus - $550,000

Dock Tease

  • Dingy -$125,000

Southern San Andreas Super Autos

  • Vapid Guardian - $375,000
  • Dinka Enduro - $48,000
  • Declasse Gang Burrito - $65,000
  • Karin Kuruma - $95,000
  • Karin Kuruma (Armored) - $525,000
  • Canis Seminole - $30,000
  • Bravado Rumpo - $13,000
  • Ocelot Jackal - $60,000
  • Ubermacht Oracle XS - $82,000
  • Benefactor Schafter - $65,000
  • Cheval Surge - $38,000
  • Bravado Gresley - $29,000
  • Dundreary Landstalker - $58,000
  • Principe Nemesis - $12,000

If amassing $8 million seems a little daunting, there is a workaround for this achievement that only requires players to have at a bare minimum, $3.4 million. 

To begin, complete the tutorial heist entitled, “The Fleeca Job,” as it will unlock the Karin Kuruma (Armored) for purchase. Now buy the car off the auto website for $525,000 and wait for the in-game text message that indicates the vehicle has been delivered to your garage. Go to your apartment, get inside the Kuruma, and exit the garage. Now head to the nearest Los Santos Customs and you will be able to sell the vehicle for $315,000 provided you did not damage the car on your way to the mod shop. This essentially translates to a minimal net loss of only $210,000. 

From here, you will automatically exit Los Santos Customs. Open up your in-game phone and purchase another Kuruma, wait for it to be delivered to your garage, then repeat the process detailed above. You will want to continue cycling through this method exactly 16 times in order to obtain the achievement. For the math involved, 16 purchases of the Kuruma, which costs $525,000, equals $8,400,000. As to why this method only requires a minimum of $3.4 million; 16 purchases multiplied by the net loss of $210,000 equals $3,360,000.

Despite your preferred method in working towards this, once you have successfully purchased a total of $8 million worth of Heist Update vehicles, this achievement will finally unlock.

No Hydra.

Not sure how this works, bought all the cars from the DLC and upgraded them all. dunno how much spent so far, maybe you just need to keep buying and selling :s

@#2 you need to complete Heists to unlock some of the vehicles like the Hydra.

Also, this should be fairly easy after you do Criminal Mastermind challenge. You get 10 million, spend 8 of that on vehicles and you're done.

Since it is hard to find non-shitty heist teammates I'll ask here. I have the Prison Break finale ready to go and am looking for people to do it. Message EricMickle3 if you want to team up. I'll likely need people for future heists as well.

Anyone who wants to play heists add me. I am a rank 331 and I play for fun but still need to play a few setups. Don't care if you have a mic since you really only need one for 1 mission later on.

Looking for help from 2 people with mics to complete Deliver EMP during the Humane Labs heist and then the heist itself.

Deliver EMP requires full team coordination and detection means failure which is why mics are essential. Once that is done we also need to complete the final two heists in full as well so anyone looking to gather coin is welcome. I'll guarantee a 25% cut.

Anyone interested message me on Xbox Live. We are online most evenings from 7pm GMT during weekdays and this weekend (though not Saturday night - out drinkin') and this is on Xbox 360.

GT: nhburton.

1. Speak English
2. MUST BE AT LEAST LVL 40 OR ABOVE
3. Have a mic
4. Bring a decent amount of ammo
5. Have juggernaut armor and bullet proof helmet(see notes for details)
6. Have lots of snacks and reserve body armor on you

GT: The Ravanger

Note 1: Juggernaut armor aka "The Strength" is an armor that maybe purely cosmetic in freemode and non-heist jobs, but makes just as powerful or almost as powerful as your paleto score counterpart armor in story mode. A walking tank if you may.

Note 2: Before we start the challenge I need your help on the pacific standard finale(as in the finale itself NOT the setup missions). I believe I may have foun

Note 2: Before we start the challenge I need your help on the pacific standard finale(as in the finale itself NOT the setup missions). I believe I may have found a way to complete the job without losing ANY cash aside from the elite challenge bonus. See note# 3 on details of the plan

Note 3: Step 0: Have "player saved outfits" on and equip your juggernaut armor
Step 1: Set off the alarm after killing a civie or two(you'll see why in step 6)
Step 2: Have ONLY person pickup and carry the cash in the vault
Step 3: When your about to leave the bank their will be a few squad of cops outside, have the money carrier stay inside until the coast is clear then move up to the alley
Step 4: Two guys will clear out all the cops coming from the front of the alley, the money carrier will keep

Step 4: Two guys will clear out all the cops coming from the front of the alley, the money carrier will keep his head down and the last guy will take care of the police coming from behind and guard the carrier

Step 5: Two guys look for the nearby SWAT TRUCK(NOT THE VAN) after getting to lectros

Step 6: Everyone in the truck and move out to the destination

#9 The Criminal Mastermind $10M challenge will never happen.
Good tips for buying then selling the Karuma in the guide - unless there's
a better way. Wish I'd murdered more prostitutes when that hilarious
money glitch worked now - that was my favourite thing in the entire game!

LOL - dumber than my dog.
P.S. Why would anyone want a 5-seater Velum when the original
holds 10?

They hotfixed the 360 money/car duplication glitch I was using. :(
I think I actually LOSE money doing heists with the absolute fucking SPASTICS who I join. The pricks who set it to Hard then force you to do it without the flak jacket need kicking to death - then they die constantly and quit.
Hopefully the $8M is across both characters.

Hi all, working on this now. My friends seem divided about one issue of this. Does upgrading the heist vehicles in LSC count towards the cash spent?

Comment #28 by Mark Revo Xx
Saturday, June 20, 2015 @ 02:47:17 PM

Just like it says in guide, save up to around 3.4- 3.5$ (million) and keep buying Casco or kuruma (must be aurmored) and after a while should unlock

If anyone actually wants to go for the criminal mastermind challenge I'd be more than happy to be apart of a team for it. I've beat every heist more than once and replayed the setups many times, I have one or two friends that are experienced aswell. Let me know.
