Rockstar Games has just released the next-gen Expanded and Enhanced Edition of GTA Online for PS5 and Xbox Series X/S users, which adds the new Hao's Special Works (HSW) auto shop to its open world.
The HSW auto shop allows players to upgrade the driving performance of select vehicles by providing modification services. The auto shop run by Hao can be found inside the LS Car Meet, where players can go and increase the speed and power of their cars.
Let's take a look at the five fastest HSW cars in GTA Online so far.
5 speedy HSW cars in GTA Online
5) Pegassi Weaponized Ignus
This hypercar is a new version of the base Ignus but armed and much faster. Being majorly identical to the original, it features a large roof-mounted three-barreled minigun turret that can be used by players as a weapon. With the help of HSW, the car can reach a maximum speed of 235.3 km/h (146.3 mph), making it the only weaponized car to reach that top speed.
The Pegassi Weaponized Ignus is one of the new vehicles added with the next-gen version of the game and can be purchased for $3,245,000 from Warstock Cache & Carry in the game.
4) Grotti Turismo Classic
Next on our list is the Grotti Turismo Classic. It is heavily inspired by classic Ferrari models from the 1980s and has a simplistic design with overall sporty elements.
The Grotti Turismo Classic is equipped with a powerful V12 engine at the mid-back. It is known for its superior handling, plenty of downforce, and precise cornering. With HSW modifications, the car can reach a staggering speed of 242.3 km/h (150.5 mph).
It is indeed one of the cheapest on the list, available to purchase for only $705,000 from Legendary Motorsport.
3) Principe Deveste Eight
In the third position, we have Principe Deveste Eight, which is an ultra hypercar. It is based on a real-life concept car from Dubai, Devel Sixteen.
The vehicle can be seen having a unique V16 engine through the glass hood. It has excellent top speed with medium acceleration. With the right set of parts from HSW, the hypercar can reach up to 244.2 km/h (151.75 mph).
The Principe Deveste Eight can be purchased from Legendary Motorsport for $1,795,000.
2) Bravado Banshee
Next on our list is one of the most popular GTA vehicles of all time, the classic Bravado Banshee. It first appeared in GTA III and has appeared in nearly every major title so far.
Although GTA Online's version of Banshee holds the same design as its previous appearance in GTA IV, it has a massive 300ci (4.9L), twin-turbocharged V8 engine mated to a 5-speed gearbox. With the help of the HSW auto-shop, the car can reach a maximum speed of 246.3 km/h (153 mph).
The Bravado Banshee can be purchased for a decent $105,000 from Benny's Original Motor Works in the next-gen version of the game.
1) Karin S95
At number 1, we have the newly added Karin S95 sports car in the next-gen version of the game. The car's general design is inspired by a real-life Subaru BRZ/Toyota 86/Scion FR-S. It can reach a maximum speed of 186 km/h (115.5). However, with the right parts from the HSW auto shop, the car can reach an unfathomable speed of 250.3 km/h (155.5 mph).
The Karin S95 can be purchased for $1,995,000 from Southern San Andreas Super Autos.
