A new event week has just released in GTA Online and a quick look at the new weekly update tells us there's plenty of new bonuses for players to pick up. That also means more money to spend and new vehicles to unlock or purchase. For the sake of this page, we're going to take a look at one of the new Los Santos Tuner cars, the Übermacht Cypher. This isn't a new Podium Car or Prize Ride, but simply a new car added as part of the drip-feed of content from the Los Santos Tuners DLC.
Naturally, some GTA Online might be wondering if this new sports car is worth buying, or if it's the Fastest GTA Online car, hence this ultra-quick review to give you a sense of if it's worth spending your hard-earned cash on.
So without further ado, here’s everything you need to know about the new 2-door sports sedan driving around San Andreas and if it’s worth adding to your GTA Online garage collection.
Übermacht Cypher Review
The Übermacht Cypher was released as part of the Los Santos Tuners update and is a variant on the games existing Übermacht models, such as the Revolter (sports class) or other cars from the Coupe class.
Where Can I Buy The Übermacht Cypher?
Currently, GTA Online players can get the Übermacht Cypher from Legendary Motorsport.
For those wondering, yes you can also customise the Übermacht Cypher at Los Santos Customs and the LS Car Meet Mod Shop.
Übermacht Cypher Price (Buy & Sell)
The Übermacht Cypher will cost you $1,550,000 to buy upfront from Legendary Motorsport.
The Trade Price in GTA Online allows players to buy a car for much cheaper than its normal cost, but you have to complete an objective first.
Anyone who wants to buy the Übermacht Cypher at trade price will have to level up their LS Car Meet Reputation sufficiently if they want to buy it for as little as $1,162,500.
If you decide you want to sell the Übermacht Cypher you can expect to get a resale price of $930,000.
This is roughly 60% of the original purchase price, plus you can expect to receive 60% of the value of your upgrades too.
What Is The Top Speed Of The Übermacht Cypher?
Fans interested in taking the Übermacht Cypher for a spin will be interested to know that the car’s top speed isn't great. Based on some testing from GTA car expert Broughy1322, it's the second slowest of the bunch.
In-Game it has a top speed of 113.50 mph (182.66 km/h).
The Übermacht Cypher In Real Life
Rockstar Games based the design of the Übermacht Cypher on a BMW M2.
Is The Übermacht Cypher Worth It?
At the time of writing, 100% no. That's because in the current event week this story is being written it's free as the Prize Ride vehicle. So you may as well get it for free.
If however, you're reading this after September 9, 2021, should you buy it? Again, we'd probably say no.
As we've touched on, it's not got good speed and in lap time testing it's also not great. Not awful, but also not brilliant when compared to some of the other cars released with the Los Santos Tuners update.
In Broughy's testing it comes 6th fastest for the new cars, but 36th for Sports class overall.
Plus with a high price of $1,550,000, we think it's possibly better to keep the cash.
