GTA Online: 5 Best and Fastest HSW Cars, Ranked (2024)

One of the most interesting new features added to the Expanded & Enhanced version of GTA V was the addition of Hao’s Special Works vehicles. These are cars that can be specially modified at the Los Santos Car Meet with unique mods to make them go much, much faster. These vehicles can be used in HSW races and time trials, making them worth collecting.

But out of all the different HSW vehicles in the next-gen version of GTA V, which ones are the best to get? And what do their stats look like? We’ll be answering those exact questions in our list for the Top 5 Best & Fastest HSW Cars in GTA Online!

Top 5 HSW Cars in GTA Online, Ranked Good to Best

What are we waiting for? Let’s dive right into the ranking.

#5 Bravado Banshee

The Bravado Banshee is an iconic sports car that many long-time GTA fans may recognize from GTA IV. The car was pretty fast in that game, but now it’s even faster this time around with the HSW upgrades. It can reach a top speed of 153! Definitely not the best in the game, but it makes up for its shortcomings with strong acceleration. The handling stat is good, but in my experience, this car can steer out of control fairly easily if you are not used to how it turns.

You can buy this car for a price of $105,000. However, you’ll need to pay $1,840,000 to make it compatible with HSW’s mods. The value you are getting for this car is pretty good, so I have a few complaints about the price tag. This is a good budget car if you want to get into some HSW races. And chances are you already have this car if you’ve been playing the game for a while.

#4 Benefactor Stirling

Next in this list of the Top 5 Best & Fastest HSW Cars in GTA Online is the Benefactor Stirling. This is a really classy sports car that features excellent stats, despite its age. The top speed of this car when fully upgraded is 156.80, making it a great choice for any HSW race or time trial. In addition to its excellent top speed, the Benefactor Stirling also comes with good handling and acceleration. These stats are not the best in these two categories compared to our next few vehicles.

The price of this car is $975,000, plus $900,000 for the conversion cost. While this is a good price, it has a few strings attached. You can only buy this vehicle from the Vinewood Car Club. This is a special in-game store that you will only have access to if you are a member of GTA+, a monthly premium subscription service for GTA Online. So you’d better be willing to fork out some real-world cash if you want this car.

#3 Shitzu Hakuchou Drag Bike

The Shitzu Hakuchou Drag Bike is a sleek and stylish modern motorcycle. It features one of the best top speeds of its class, clocking in at a total of 157.50. Its acceleration is also outstanding, with a perfect 100 points. It also features great handling and pretty okay-breaking capabilities. I highly recommend you use this vehicle in HSW time trials due to its great top-speed, acceleration, and handling. You’ll be able to very quickly navigate around tight turns without compromising on speed.

This vehicle can be purchased for exactly $976,000, but requires an additional conversion cost of $1,450,000 in order to be able to use Hao’s Special Works modifications. This makes the bike a bit on the pricer side, but it’s well worth it given its stats.

#2 Declasse Vigero ZX

The Declasse Vigero ZX is a speedy muscle car that can reach a maximum speed of 157.50 miles per hour once it’s been fully upgraded. This makes it one of the fastest muscle cars in the entire game, perfect if you are a fan of this type of vehicle. The Vigero ZX also features great acceleration, allowing you to get up to top speed really fast. Its handling is also great, making it one of the easier muscle cars for you to steer around.

To purchase this car, you will need to buy it for a total cost of $1,947,000. This makes it a little cheaper compared to some of the other rides on this ranking, and therefore a good investment if you want something with power that won’t break the bank.

#1 Grotti Itali GTO Stinger TT

In spot number 1, we have none other than the Grotti Itali GTO Stinger TT! This is a lightning-fast sports car that can go to a top speed of 168.50 once you’ve upgraded it with Hao’s Special Works. This makes it one of the fastest cars in the entire game, certainly worthy of the top spot on our list. In addition to its fast top speed, it also features incredibly high acceleration and good handling to boot. This makes it a really good racing vehicle.

Putting stats aside, there are also several other benefits of owning this car. For starters, it is an Imani Tech vehicle, meaning that you can put missile lock-on jammers on it to prevent enemy vehicles from locking onto you. The car is also armored and can tank a dozen missiles before being destroyed. This car can be bought from any player for a total cost of $2,380,000. Additionally, you will need to set aside exactly $1,418.000 if you want to convert it into a HSW vehicle.
