The PS5 and Xbox Series X|S versions of GTA Online also include the new Hao’s Special Works auto shop, located within the LS Car Meet, which will allow players to upgrade select vehicles (5 new vehicles and 5 existing vehicles at launch) for elite driving performance that takes full advantage of the upgraded power of new console hardware.
First announcement
This new generation of GTA Online includes a range of new vehicles and a new addition to the Los Santos Car Meet: Hao’s Special Works.
Hao’s Special Works encompasses best-in-class vehicle upgrades, a new class of Races using specially modified vehicles, and a weekly rotation of Hao’s Special Works Time Trials, along with a Premium Test Ride, where you can get behind the wheel of these newly modified vehicles for free.
Follow-up detail

Hao's Special Works is a business in Grand Theft Auto Online introduced in the initial release of the Expanded & Enhanced Edition for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S.

Description

Located inside the LS Car Meet and run by Hao, the business provides modification services and access to several exclusive features. It replaces the mod shop included in the previous-generation version of the LS Car Meet.

Functionality

Workshop

A custom auto shop allowing platform-exclusive "best-in-class" modifications to select vehicles. The workshop replaces the standard auto shop in the car meet space. Players enter the workshop from the Interaction Menu while sitting inside their Personal Vehicles.

Conversions

Similarly to Benny's Original Motor Works, players need to convert their vehicle to an HSW-compatible version. When walking around the car meet, a laptop in the workshop area lists the vehicles available for HSW conversion with the "HSW Performance Upgrade".

Unique Customization

Once a vehicle is converted, it becomes eligible for HSW custom options, performance and visual.

  • HSW Liveries
    • One is unlocked immediately, while the other requires the player to complete all of the HSW-focused Time Trials.
    • Some vehicles include two other HSW-themed liveries, but are exclusively awarded to GTA+ subscribers.
  • HSW Spoiler Options
    • Not applicable to bikes.
  • HSW Brakes
  • HSW Engine Tunes
  • HSW Suspension
    • Not applicable to bikes.
  • HSW Transmission
  • HSW Turbo Tuning:
    • Stage I
    • Stage II
    • Stage III
  • HSW Modes:
    • HSW Standard
    • HSW Race
    • HSW Sports
    • HSW Race Plus
    • Exclusive to electric vehicles only.

These performance upgrades add a second bar to the acceleration performance graph, effectively offering up to twice the acceleration performance over the previous top of the line upgrades.

HSW Specification Service

Reckon your ride got what it takes to be an LSCM standard? Just leave it there, see if anyone takes it for a spin. Here's the deal: if they like it enough to pay for it, I'll make 'em an exact replica. Then next time you swing by, I'll give you fat comp for sending the work my way.
— Hao's text message announcing the service.

Hao can supply an exact duplicate of the customization options of any* player-owned Personal Vehicles found in the LS Car Meet, paying a commission[vague] to the original owner. *Vehicle must be able to access the LS Car Meet (i.e. not be on the disallowed list).

Hao's Special Works Race Series

A collection of 14 races for HSW-tuned vehicles only. Every track in this series is an identical duplicate of already existing Land Race tracks, such as Downtown Underground, Cutting Coroners, and Greenwich Meantime.

Hao's Special Works Time Trials

A Time Trials race similar to existing Time Trials, but exclusive to HSW-tuned vehicles. The par time will be different based on what vehicle is used. The featured trial is changed to a new course weekly. Completing all 8 HSW Time Trials unlocks the ability to purchase the "HSW Elite" livery for all HSW-tuned vehicles.

Class A: 1:21:000
Class B: 1:28:000
Class C: 1:28:000

There are time trials, and then there are HSW time trials. The difference? Juck check your speedometer as you nosedive into the Vespucci Beach public bathrooms.

Class A: 1:21:000
Class B: 1:25:000

3
Sandy Shores
From Sandy Shores to La Puerta.

Class A: 2:23:000
Class B: 2:33:000
Class C: 2:48:000

An HSW time trial from Sandy Shores to the big city is the American dream: sure, there's a chance you'll make it big, but even if you crash and burn you'll make the front page. Time Trial for HSW vehicles.

Class A: 1:47:000
Class B: 1:59:000

Class A: 4:15:000
Class B: 4:37:000
Class C: 4:37:000

When nature calls in San Andreas, there's only one answer: stay behind your windshield, use the aircon to filter the fresh air, and do an HSW time trial to avoid dropping below the LS average of 150bpm.

From Pacific Bluffs to El Gordo Lighthouse.

Class A: 3:31.000
Class B: 3:46:000
Class C: 3:59:000

From North Chumash to Palomino Highlands.

Class A: 3:49:000
Class B: 4:03:000
Class C: 4:17:000
