A freshly leaked DLC image (above) depicting four characters wearing masks and holding snowballs has surfaced online, wherein one can also notice the rumoured Declasse Tampa in the background. However, there is still no clue on where to find this car in the game or if it would be part of a future DLC update in GTA Online.

As Ross explains in his latest gameplay video for GTA Online, the leaked image clearly shows the chrome rims and a pre-dominant line running across the body frame and the doors of the car, which confirms that it is indeed the Declasse Tampa. Furthermore, the car in the leaked image looks similar to the original found in GTA 4 and The Ballad Of Gay Tony DLC as well as the recent car mods for the Tampa being demonstrated on the PC.

There is still no word on the price or release date for the Declasse Tampa. However, a couple of recent tweets from avid GTA gamer CrewBoss has confirmed that Rockstar is yet to upload an image of the Tampa on its social club. In other words, it could take a few more days before the car is released in GTA Online.

Not to mention, the Rockstar Social Club clearly has a vacant slot for the Declasse Tampa in the Muscle cars category with all its stats intact. One can clearly notice the speed, acceleration, braking and traction stats on the imageless page on the social club.

The newly-released Festive Surprise DLC also introduces a set of three looping horns namely Festive Loop 1, 2 and 3. All these horns are available as free upgrades through Benny's Original MotorWorks.

As Ross explains, once you install any of these Festive horn upgrades on your lowrider car, you can notice the "Jingle Effect" whenever you apply the hydraulics on the car. Moving on to the missing items with Hunt the Beast character, Ross shared a few screenshots (see video) that reveal numerous mask variants including Santa's version.

Contrary to rumours, the new Festive Surprise update has not received the Beast vs Slasher Adversary mode. Nonetheless, the prolific GTA tipster, Funmw2 aka TezFunz2, confirmed on Twitter that Slashers will be able to use thermal vision to locate Beasts in the forthcoming mode.

In another tweet, the same tipster clarified that if you are playing as a beast you will enjoy more health points and accelerated health regeneration capabilities, besides the ability to run faster. However, using these special powers could drain your health quickly.

Finally, Funmw2 added that a new version of cargobob (Cargobob4) will be available for Drop Zone Adversary Mode with the ability to drop from it to the neutral zone. Rockstar is also likely to offer you some Firework launcher and a bunch of five fireworks in GTA Online on the eve of Christmas, New Year's Eve and New Year's Day.
