GTA Online January 7 Update: Paragon R, Prime Gaming Rewards & 3x GTA$

Andrew Highton

GTA Online is off to a hot start in 2021 as the Paragon R is this week’s podium vehicle. There are also some very cool Prime Gaming Rewards for you to unlock, plus your usual range of sizable discounts too.

We all hope you had a terrific new year and hopefully 2021 will all bring us more joy. Rockstar has tried to kickstart this with a new update for GTA Online.

Thanks to our usual GTA Online leaker TezFunz2, these are all the changes that come with the January 7 update.

GTA Online January 7 patch notes

GTA Online Diamond Casino Lucky Wheel Reward

Diamond Casino & Resort is continuing its seemingly endless generosity by offering up a new vehicle for you to earn for free this week. The Lucky Wheel’s new prize is the Paragon R sportscar.

The Paragon R is worth $905,000 and here’s the official description of the vehicle:

This is it. Wrap it up, folks. Thanks to Enus, humanity’s quest to design the perfect grand tourer is finally over. It took generations of privately educated stiff upper lips, all prepared to dig deep into bottomless wells of lazy entitlement – but credit where it’s due. The Brits cracked the code. This is the kind of self-assurance that can’t be earned. It can only be bought.

We also have information on all the new races and time trials too.
