Los Santos Tuners is a content update for Grand Theft Auto Online, released on July 20, 2021.

Description

On July 20, the underground tuner scene in Los Santos roars to life with the launch of GTA Online: Los Santos Tuners. In addition to a ton of action-packed, Tuner-based missions and races, this update introduces the LS Car Meet, a gigantic, shared social space where you and your cherished personal vehicle can mingle freely with fellow car fans to race, show off your customized vehicles, and even link up with shady contacts looking for skilled drivers and a chance at easy money.

Content

To get started, you’ll need to visit a non-descript, graffitied warehouse on the edge of town in Cypress Flats — listen close and the sound of engines revving might give it away, or look for the makeshift finish line on the road outside. Inside, the LS Car Meet has a “good vibes only” policy, making it a great place to skip the attention of the law and any small-time chumps looking to terrorize the citizens of greater Los Santos. Park your attitude (and your weaponized vehicles) at the door and share your love of car culture with some like-minded personalities. Here, you’ll find countless ways to immerse yourself in the beating heart of the scene, show off prized personal vehicles from your collection or check out everybody else’s.

LS Car Meet

Main article: LS Car Meet

Moodymann, Hao and many other known mechanics including Benny, appear in the underground meet along with a host of new characters where players can meet up safe from Free Mode dangers to show off their vehicles and interact.

Prize Ride Challenges

Every week, a prize vehicle will be on display on the back of a Slamtruck in the Car Meet. Varying challenges will be set for players to achieve in order to win the prize car for free. These challenges may take several days to complete.

Reputation

In the underground world of the Car Meet, Reputation is a valuable commodity. Earn Rep by participating in (and winning) races, daily log in bonuses, putting in time on the Test Track, and even just hanging out at the Car Meet.
Earning Rep gets you an assortment of rewards to elevate your status in the scene — these include unlocking access to all sorts of fashionable gear, flashy new car customization options like new wheels and liveries, as well as Trade Prices on certain vehicles, access to new Race modes, and even the ability to hold your own private Car Meet.

Similar to the Arena Points system, new reputation levels unlock trade prices on vehicles, exclusive clothing items from purchase from the Merch store, vehicle customizations (e.g. wheels and liveries) and gameplay features.

Private Takeover

Players can take over the arena for a private session for an additional $50,000 fee, once they have achieved Reputation Level 20.

Races

Los Santos Tuners introduces new races inside and outside the Car Meet, each with their own Leaderboards. On the Test Track, you can engage in friendly competitions like Head-to-Head where speed and precision will give you the necessary advantage to best your opponent in a short format race, and Scramble where up to four players race to collect 20 checkpoints. Time Trials around the Test Track give you the chance to put your vehicles through their paces and score your own Personal Record. Up to 30 players will share the track space with you, but contact will be disabled while competing, and members can also go into Private Test Tracks solo. Off the Test Track and throughout the city, there are also new race series for members: Street Race Series and Pursuit Series.
The Street Race Series delivers exactly what it says on the can: bruising competition on creative tracks built on the streets of some of Los Santos’ most scenic neighborhoods, complete with shortcuts that are as much about risk as they are reward. The Pursuit Series offers drivers a more open-ended experience, with checkpoints placed sparsely throughout the map to encourage creative routes — after all, you’ll be competing against your fellow racers, as well as having LSPD’s finest hot on your heels. Meanwhile, Sprint offers a point to point challenge in Freemode with up to three other drivers in a breakneck race from the LS Car Meet out to various locations like LSIA and back.

Test Track

The Meet building is home to a vast indoor test track. Players can access the track as a shared space with other players or opt to have an instanced session to themselves. Players can access with their own Personal Vehicles or one of a rotating set of three Test cars parked near the entry. While inside, players are free to drive around and three race options are available from the interaction menu:

Time Trial

Set a personal best time around the LS Car Meet Test Track (1 player - all other cars will turn to ghost-mode for non-contact)

Head-to-Head

Challenge another player to a there-and-back drag race across the LS Car Meet Test Track space (2 players).

Scramble

A randomized race around the LS Car Meet Test Track space where players compete to be the first to reach the target number of checkpoints (2-4 players)

Sprint

Race to an external checkpoint and back to the LS Car Meet in Free Mode (2-4 Players)

  • Accessible from the Interaction Menu inside the Car Meet only.

— Newswire.

Some modifications will only be available in the expanded and enhanced version on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S in November.

Character Customization

A new Merch Shop is available in the car meet area. Its stock of over 170 items is exclusive to this shop, and all items must be unlocked by Reputation Level before the player can purchase them.

A Tattoo Shop is also available inside the car meet. While no new tattoos have been added, the "Torso – Back" category has been split into the "Torso – Back" and the new "Torso – Back Full" categories; this was presumably done to avoid a bug where the last few tattoos in this category would not show up due to too many purchasable items.

There is one new haircut for each gender included with this update, that being the "Afro Faded" haircut for male protagonists and the "Afro" for female protagonists.
