The Cunning Stunts DLC was more of a chill update than a serious one like the Heists update. This does not mean it was not fun. The thrill of the unusually crazy shape of the tracks and the various quirks of the tracks themselves was unparalleled by any other piece of content in the game. Players could play these races that included twists, turns, flights, significant airtimes and everything in between using their own personal vehicles or rent a vehicle for the race for $500. They could also bet on winners. The races also awarded decent amounts of cash, especially during the double money weeks where almost all of the players played these races.

Both of these DLCs are usually termed as the continuation of one another. They added the first real business to the game which was the only real way to earn a lot of money other than Heists. The special cargo business involved players sourcing 1,2 or 3 crates, storing them in their warehouses and later selling them in large amounts to earn a profit. The Vehicle cargo business involved players stealing high valued vehicles, storing them in Vehicle Warehouses, modifying them and delivering them to high profile contacts for a hefty commission. Both of these businesses required a CEO Office to do. This update also added plenty of new supercars and sport cars
