GTA Online’s next-gen edition has brought Hao’s Special Works to the game, allowing PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X players to purchase exclusive vehicle upgrades. Here’s how to use Hao’s Special Works and unlock the HSW vehicle upgrades.

GTA Online’s next-gen version is here, bringing 4K resolution, a smooth 60FPS, and faster load times to PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S consoles. But that’s not all, as next-gen players can fit their cars with the brand-new Hao’s Special Works, or HSW, upgrades.

HSW upgrades will take your vehicles to another level, so here’s everything you need to know about Hao’s Special Works, including how to unlock it, which cars you can upgrade, and how to claim the free vehicle.

Hao in GTA Online

How to unlock Hao’s Special Works in GTA Online

After you’ve transferred your GTA Online character to the next-gen edition, the game will point you directly towards Hao, as he’ll call you to come and collect one of his souped-up cars.

Simply follow the marker to his garage in Vinewood, and then he’ll give you a time trial to complete. You’ll have a generous eight minutes to complete the time trial, so don’t panic, just take your time, and you should clear it with a couple of minutes to spare.

Hao’s Special Works location

Finding Hao’s Special Workshop can be a little bit tricky, as it isn’t marked on the map as you would expect.

To get there, you’ll actually need to head to the LS Car Meet, down in the southeast of Los Santos. Once inside, Hao can be found in the northeast corner of the workshop, where he will happily help you mod your car — for a price.

All upgradeable Hao’s Special Works cars

Not every GTA Online vehicle can be fitted with HSW upgrades. Hao can upgrade nine cars for you in GTA Online, five of them being the brand-new next-gen exclusive vehicles.

The next-gen exclusive Karin S95 usually costs $1,995,000, but returning players can claim it for free. And the best part is, it’ll already be maxed out with every HSW upgrade. Simply head to Southern San Andreas Super Autos and you can claim the Karin.

Plus, for winning the time trial, you’ll also get an HSW Performance Upgrade for free.

San Andreas motorsport gta online next-gen exclusive vehicles

Here are the vehicles that can be upgraded at Hao’s Special Works:

  • Ubermacht Sentinel XS
  • Shitzu Hakuchou Drag
  • Grotti Turismo Classic
  • Bravado Banshee
  • Coil Cyclone II
  • Karin S95
  • Imponte Arbiter GT
  • Pfister Astron Custom
  • Pegassi Weaponized Ignus

Hao’s Special Works upgrades & services

Once you have a car that Hao can upgrade, it’s time to head to the LS Car Meet and let him upgrade your ride. Before you can add anything crazy though, you’ll need to convert your vehicle using an HSW Performance Upgrade.

Luckily, you get one of these for free when you complete Hao’s time trail, but you’ll need to pay for additional cars in the future. Once converted, here’s everything you can buy to make your car even faster.

  • HSW Brakes
  • HSW Engine Tune
  • HSW Suspension
  • HSW Transmission
  • HSW Turbo Tuning (Stage I, II, and III)
  • Chameleon Paint
  • Countermeasures (for the Weaponized Ignus)

That’s everything you need to know about upgrading your cars at Hao’s Special Works! For more GTA Online, check out how to copy and buy other players’ cars.
