What is the fastest car in GTA Online since The Criminal Enterprises update?

The Criminal Enterprises update introduced several new vehicles in GTA Online, leading players to wonder which one is the fastest. More vehicles are expected to be launched in the future via the drip feeding system, but the fastest among the current selection is the HSW.

For those who don’t know, the current fastest car in GTA Online is the Stirling GT. The original car only climbed up to 112.00 mph (180.25 km/h), which isn’t impressive. However, it is the HSW’s performance upgrade that gives it the highest speed in the game. With that said, its new top speed is 156.80 mph (252.34 km/h).

Note: This article will not discuss the infinite handbrake boost error on low-grip tires, as Rockstar will likely correct this later.


Stirling GT is the fastest car in GTA Online thanks to HSW performance upgrades

The previous record holder was the Karin S95 with HSW modifications. That car had a top speed of 155.50 mph (250.25 km/h), slightly slower than the Stirling GT’s record of 156.80 mph (252.34 km/h). Keep in mind that there are faster motorcycles, helicopters, and planes in GTA Online.

These amazing top speeds simply make it faster than any other car in the game. The fastest car that does not use HSW modifications is the Grotti Vigilante, while the fastest car that is unarmed and unarmed with light weapons will be the Ocelot Pariah.

Here is a quick comparison of their top speeds:

  • Stirling GT: 156.80 mph (252.34 km/h)
  • vigilance: 147.00 mph (236.57 km/h)
  • untouchable: 136.00 mph (218.87 km/h)

Note that PS5 and Xbox Series X players | Only S have access to Hao’s Special Works.


Stirling GT information

Players may want to know more about the new king of speed in GTA Online. The Stirling GT has the following specifications:

  • car cost: $975,000
  • HSW Upgrade Cost: $900,000
  • car class: classic sport
  • Max Speed ​​(without HSW): 112.00 mph (180.25 km/h)
  • Max Speed ​​(HSW): 156.80 mph (252.34 km/h)
  • car capacity: two seats

One should know that HSW upgrades in races can be disabled by the host. If this happens, the unaware player will be driving a significantly slower vehicle in that race. Its top speed without the HSW upgrades isn’t impressive within the classic sports car class, as it stands at 22 in the Broughy1322 data.

With HSW modifications, it has the highest top speed of any classic sports car, let alone any car in general. PC, Xbox One, and PS4 gamers don’t have access to HSW mods, leaving Vigilante as their only option for massive speed.

GTA Online will probably offer another very fast car that will likely use an HSW upgrade of some sort. Given the current selection, players may receive another major contender in terms of speed and acceleration.
