Marussia B2 Siberian Supercar
The evolution of Russia’s first supercar, the Marussia B2’s biggest change is its aggressive exterior overhaul, while still maintaining its blazing speed. The out-of-this-world styling to the car definitely help it make a statement, and in Most Wanted, that’s exactly what you’re going to want to do with it.
You friends will do double-takes, trying to figure out what you’re driving, but by the time they figure it out, you’ll already be gone. The B2 spits out a cracking 420 horses and an impressive 0-62 in 3.8 seconds.
It’s one of the rarest cars on the planet, but it’s all yours if you find it in Most Wanted.
MCLAREN MP4-12C British Brilliance
McLaren re-entered the supercar world with authority when the MP4-12C was unveiled. The looks oozed class and sophistication, but the 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 screamed chaos.
With numerous racing influences and features, and a seamless shift gearbox that directs the seven-speed transmission, the MP4-12C is as quick out of the starting blocks as almost anything. Wrap the wheels in the option tire and it’ll do 0-62 in 3.1 blazing seconds.
The unique placement of the exhaust may be one of the most desiring features, and can be seen spitting flames occasionally on racetracks around the world.
In Most Wanted, expect a well-balanced machine in the city, but the utter joy of opening it up on the highways is an absolute blast.
CHEVROLET CORVETTE ZR1 Patriot Missile
Few cars are more American than the Corvette, and the ZR1 is in a class of its own.
Arguably the biggest bang for your buck you can get, it’s as if Chevy poured as much power as they could into the car. Then decided it didn’t have enough and added more.
The LS9 pumps out an astonishing 638 horsepower, putting the Vette into a league of exclusive exotics usually dominated by European manufacturers. It’s very, very fast.
Chevy stripped all excess weight away, even replacing the standard roof with carbon fiber. It’s so light, we like to minimise weight by driving ours naked. It’s the only way to be sure.
Incredible 15.5in 6-piston brakes will stop the ZR1 on a dime, giving you the manoeuvrability you need to embarrass your friends or Most Wanted’s cops on long straights, winding highways and even the tight back alleys of Downtown Fairhaven.
FORD F-150 SVT RAPTOR Torture Tested
Nothing says durable like the F-150. And nothing says off-road like the SVT Raptor.
According to our friends over at Ford, the Raptor glides over obstacles with ease, thanks to its Fox Racing Shox internal triple-bypass shocks.
Which is ideal in Most Wanted’s Fairhaven City, where those obstacles tend to include police road blocks or European exotics driven by your friends.
With Fairhaven City’s cops in pursuit, you can run using the Raptor’s peerless strength to shrug off impacts or hit the dirt and exploit its awesome off-road ability.
FORD GT Ford Supercar
Ford’s first entry into the supercar world was nothing short of unstoppable, with the GT40 dominating Le Mans through the late 60’s.
But it wasn’t until 50 years later that Ford reimagined the GT40 as the Ford GT. It was a celebration of 100 Years of Ford and put America firmly back in the fight for 200mph supercar supremacy.
There’s nothing sweeter than cranking up the volume, tearing through the tunnels in Most Wanted, and hearing the 5.4L supercharged V8 announce your presence with a brutal roar. The fact that it goes 200mph doesn’t hurt either.
Barrelling through city streets at that kind of speed or handling 550hp through tight turns takes a special kind of driver, but on Fairhaven’s out-of-town freeways, the GT’s stunning balance makes drifting those long, sweeping curves a breeze.
CHEVROLET CAMARO ZL1 Let Battle Commence
The Muscle car wars have been raging since the 60’s, and Chevy’s recent remake of the archetypal muscle car escalated the conflict to new heights.
If it was any more awesome, it’d be banned under the Geneva Convention.
Taking the macho lines and outrageous power that characterised the first Camaro back in ’66, the latest Camaro in its ZL1 form packs a whopping 6.2 liter V8 delivering 580 horsepower. That’s a staggering 440 horsepower more than the standard Camaro your dad drove.
And he wouldn’t just be jealous of the power. The ZL1 hits 60 mph from a standing start in 3.9 seconds and tops out at 184 mph.
There may be faster or tougher cars in Most Wanted, but there’s nothing that combines speed and strength better than the ZL1. It’s a spectacular all-rounder.
And in the open world of Fairhaven, this gives you options. Lose the cops using straight line speed on the Interstate, hit jumps and shortcuts Downtown, head off road at the coal mine South of Callaghan Industrial or turn and slug it out in the cement works.
SUBARU COSWORTH IMPREZA STI CS400 Offroad Master
When we think Subaru Impreza, we think speed. And mud.
The Impreza is one of our all-time favourite cars: an off road car somehow reminiscent of the classic Lancia Delta Integrale or the Audi Quattro. Worthy rally champions and childhood dream cars.
Only 75 of this particular model – the Cosworth STI CS400 – were built, making it one of the most wanted cars in the world.
It’s the car’s rally heritage that sets it apart from the pack in Most Wanted. Shake the cops with ease by getting off the road or hitting big jumps. Make use of the excellent traction and acceleration to dominate stunts and jump records in Autolog.
The Impreza’s unbeatable off road, but your friends may underestimate the car’s performance on tarmac. Boasting 395hp and a blistering 0-62 time of 3.7 seconds, the CS400 is one of the best all-around cars in the game.
It’s particularly useful at mid to low-speeds and will drift comfortably and easily on any surface and at practically any speed.
SRT VIPER GTS Bad to the Bone
The original 1989 Viper was the quintessential American sports car: bold, brash, bad-ass, loud and fast.
Now, it’s back with the 2012 SRT Viper, a 640 horsepower, V10 monster capable of 0-60 in 3.3 seconds and 220 mph top speed.
What makes the Viper special in Most Wanted is the combination of speed and strength. It’s insanely fast in a straight line. Head for long straights to lose the cops or make it your first choice for fast, freeway races.
The Viper’s bad-ass looks are matched by the steel, aluminium, magnesium, and carbon-fiber frame. It’s designed and built in America. It’s big, strong and powerful. You’ll make short work of rivals in lighter, flimsier cars when the going gets physical, and you’ll shake off marauding cops with ease.
It’s also brutally overpowered – a great car for showboating. Wheelspin, drift and doughnut the car with ease and taunt your friends online.
PORSCHE 911 CARRERA S 50 Years of Speed
We love the 911 so much we made it our cover car for Most Wanted.
A 911 of some kind or another has been manufactured continuously since 1963 making it the oldest sports car in the world.
The latest Carrera S is the pinnacle of almost 50 years of automotive heritage. The 3.8 liter flat six pumping 400 horsepower through the rear wheels is a far cry from the 128 you got with the original.
The 911’s small size, great acceleration and ace maneuverability make it perfect for sudden, evasive moves. Head for the dense urban network of Fairhaven’s Downtown area and whip it through side streets and shortcuts to lose the cops.
The Carrera S is a true driver’s car, so recreating the handling for Need for Speed has been a blast. It’s the fastest all-rounder in the game and one of the most enjoyable to drive.
We have a long-standing relationship with our friends at Porsche. We’re proud to say we’ve worked closely with them to bring you the most fun Porsche driving experience you’ll find in games.
