A fair few super/sports cars have those lights in the badges and they light up with the headlights, even with high-beams on. I think I've seen a few muscle cars with that illuminated badge too.

I'd say it sometimes just gives the impression because light gets reflected from the road, a wall or what ever.

 

A bit like here.

Just noticed that the controller's light bar changes color based on your position in a race. That's a pretty neat detail.

Today i found that even Tryhards, Griefers and people trying to mess with your business will cowar before the might of the Minigun. Seriously, a guy was so scared of dying that he went to grief some other poor sap instead. And he was in a jet.

FWIW, I wasn't aware that in VIP/CEO jobs (when there are NPC targets around the map you can protect), you can pick up anywhere from $1,500 to $9,200 (or so) just by physically hanging around them for less than 10 seconds. No shots fired, no effort made to do anything but be near them.

 

When the job is done, you'll be rewarded based on how many targets were still alive at the end; if they all get bumped off, you can still make $1,500 or so.

 

In one job last night, with only two targets alive at the end, I walked away with $9,200.

The Manchez excels against every other motorcycle with maneuverability when performing a wheelie.

I'm pretty sure it was never here before until last update or something, on the vinewood plaza mall on the roof there is 4 spinning lights in a square surrounding one of the big AC units at the far end of the roof that's curved.

I've been on the roof many times and never saw these until now so I'm pretty sure they were recently added.

While we're on the topic; didn't know that two Buzzards sometime spawn together at the Merryweather docks (I'm flying one I just stole--image below). You can see my CEO-spawned Buzzard icon at the main Merryweather entrance (north).

 

What's handy is starting with a CEO Buzzard if you have one, then, while flying in-game (e.g. Sightseer), if you happen to spot one somewhere (say, NOOSE HQ), land and swap choppers. The benefit is that if your random Buzzard gets nailed, you have your insta-spawn Buzzard as a fast backup--saves time and sweat if you need one pronto, without any worries of a cooldown.

 

You can do the same with Pegasus, but the random-spawned Buzzards are of course, free. :)

For a while now I've known that if the cops follow you to the airfield in "Time To Get Away", the friendly NPCs there will shoot at them; what I didn't know was that one of them will also take off in the Maverick and chase after them. While they fly/drive merry circles around each other, you can also shoot all the cops, and they will completely ignore you.

Apparently Coil, the parody brand of Tesla, manufactured the minigun.

Kind of makes sense, real life miniguns are powered by an electric motor fed from an external power source.  Would make more sense to slap a Hawk and Little/Shrewsbury brand on there too, designed by a conventional arms manufacturer; powered by an electrics company.
