Rockstar Games recently revealed Los Santos Tuners, the upcoming major summer DLC for Grand Theft Auto Online.

The car meet update focuses on giving players a calm space to roll up in their fanciest rides without having to worry about NPC enemies or griefers.

However, there are also some features that will be exclusive to the Xbox Series X/S and PlayStation 5 port coming later this year.

Launching in November is GTA 5's native next-gen port, which will reportedly feature a huge swath of technical improvements and gameplay extensions.

Some in-game upgrades for vehicles that will only be available in the new version.

We only know about speed improvements, but Rockstar did state "[...] and more", so other exclusive upgrades will also be coming.

The next-gen port of GTA 5 will feature major technical overhauling, so there won't be cross-generation play and the exclusive speed upgrades shouldn't cause any kind of imbalance

Gating content that does not technically need the improved hardware of the new consoles has caused a bit of controversy

It remains to be seen just how many upgrades will be exclusive to the port, and what other features will force players to buy the new version.
