After a long wait and multiple delays, GTA 5 and GTA Online's next-gen versions are finally available. Finally, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S owners can experience the reworked titles and enjoy Grand Theft Auto like never before.
The overhaul features three different graphics modes for players to apply the best settings for their console. Moreover, PlayStation 5 users can enjoy GTA Online for free during an initial three-month download period.
When players are ready to enjoy the crime-ridden streets of Los Santos, they'll need a nice set of wheels to zoom around in. So, if you're looking for the best cars in GTA Online next-gen, then look no further.
GTA Online next-gen best cars
In addition to the next-gen reworked gameplay, Rockstar Games has also added new vehicles exclusive to the next-gen versions of GTA 5 and GTA Online. This version also features a special auto shop, where players can get top upgrades to take their cars to the next level.
Some of the upgrades on next-gen exclusive vehicles can massively improve speed, making for some of the fastest cars in GTA Online.
Hao's Special Works - GTA Online next-gen
The new car modification shop in GTA Online next-gen is Hao's Special Works and allows players to take their vehicles to the next level. Hao is the master of modifications, and players will be able to have custom work done on some of their cars upon unlocking Hao's Special Works.
Players will receive a phone call from Hao very early in GTA Online gameplay. First, he'll invite you to his shop location, and the icon will appear on the map. Then, Hao will challenge you to beat his time in a trial run around the city upon reaching the location.
When players beat the trial time, they will unlock the GTA Online Hao's Special Works services, granting access to the fastest cars in GTA Online next-gen.
Best cars in GTA Online next-gen
Unsurprisingly, the new next-gen exclusive cars available for mods at Hao's Special Works are some of the fastest cars in GTA Online next-gen. With Hao's modifications, these cars surpass the Ocelot Pariah's top speed of 136 MPH. Here is our list of the best cars in GTA Online next-gen, ranked by top-speed.
Pfister Astron Custom
One of the new vehicles available exclusively in the next-gen version of GTA Online, the Pfister Astron Custom, has a standard top speed of 119.3 MPH (192 km/h). However, after Hao's modifications, this car reaches a blazing 137 MPH (220.5 km/h).
Ubermacht Sentinel XS
The Ubermacht Sentinel XS is a pre-existing car in GTA Online, but it's now available for modification at Hao's Special Works. After Hao works his magic on the car, top-speed can reach up to 137.8 MPH (221.8 km/h), making this one of the best selections in GTA Online next-gen.
Coil Cyclone 2
Another new car available in the next-gen versions of GTA Online, the Coil Cyclone 2, has a standard top speed of 119.3 MPH (192 km/h). However, after Hao's Special Works modifications, the Coil Cyclone 2 can reach 141 MPH (227 km/h).
Imponte Arbiter GT
Already a popular car in GTA Online, thanks to its striking muscle car appearance, the Imponte Arbiter GT typically reaches a top speed of 112.8 MPH (181.5 km/h). However, once Hao has finished fine-tuning the car, it will be able to fly up to 141.3 MPH (227.3 km/h).
Pegassi Weaponized Ignus
This is the only weaponized vehicle eligible for modifications at Hao's Special Works at the moment, featuring a mounted minigun on the hood of the car. After changes have been made at Hao's Special Works, the Pegassi Weaponized Ignus will reach a top speed of 146.3 MPH (235.3 km/h).
Grotti Turismo Classic
The Grotti Turismo Classic will be an enjoyable car to modify at Hao's Special Works. It's the only Classic sports car available to be modded at HSW, and players will even be able to take it out for an exhibition lap. When Hao is done working on the car, it will reach top speeds of 150.5 MPH (242.3 km/h).
Another of the existing cars to receive a Hao's Special Works tag, the Bravado Banshee, has serious potential for speed improvement with the special mods. Let Hao work on the vehicle at his shop, and he'll return it to you with a new top speed of 153 MPH (246.3 km/h).
Based on the Toyota GR 86, the Karin S95 is one of the most popular cars in GTA Online next-gen, and indeed the fastest. Once Hao has completed his work on this car, the top speed will have ridiculous capabilities at 155.5 MPG (250.3 km/h).
