Need For Speed Heat – full car list revealed with 127 playable vehicles

Need For Speed Heat – full car list revealed with 127 playable vehicles

It’s no Gran Turismo, but Need For Speed Heat will have a whopping number of cars for you to race and modify

EA Games has let slip the full car list for the newest instalment of the Need For Speed franchise, revealing a whopping lineup of 127 playable cars spread across 32 different manufacturers.

Announced at the same time as the release of Need For Speed Heat’s gameplay trailer (below), the car list confirms there will be plenty of choices for players, with a good spread of brands from Europe, the USA and Japan. There’s even one Chinese-made vehicle on the list: the Polestar 1 that also serves as the game’s cover car.

BMW, Nissan and Porsche each have a total of 13 vehicles on the car list, the most of any manufacturers present. That said, there are a lot of repeats that bulk up the count, mainly convertible versions of some models, as well as multiple variations of the same basic car – there are three varieties of Mercedes-AMG GT, for example, not to mention four Lamborghini Huracan variants and four Lamborghini Aventador options.

We also noted the curious exclusion of any Toyota products. Toyota sat out the last NFS title, Need For Speed Payback, and it looks like the company's video gaming hiatus will continue with Heat. You'll be able to drive the Toyota 86's identical brother the Subaru BRZ, but if you were hoping for a steer of the new Toyota Supra then you're in for some disappointment.

There’s some oddball stuff too, like a Land Rover Defender 110, Chevrolet C10 pickup, Mini Countryman JCW, a 1963 Volkswagen Beetle and Volvo 242DL. The inclusion of classic supercars like the Lamborghini Countach, Ferrari F40 and Ferrari Testarossa are no surprise though, given they’ll mesh perfectly with Heat’s Miami Vice vibe.

For the full list of cars in Need For Speed Heat, scroll down to the bottom.

We can see plenty of the cars in action in the gameplay trailer. While there are no shots suggesting we’ll finally see an in-car view, we will say this: the visual rendering is definitely up to NFS’ usual high standard, with plenty of atmospheric light, reflection and particle effects to add some graphical wow factor.

Need For Speed Heat

Damage doesn’t appear to be extensively modelled, however, if that footage of a Corvette sliding into four palm trees in quick succession is anything to go by.

The video reiterates what we already know: gameplay will be split into two different styles, with legally-sanctioned competitive racing and challenges happening during daytime, while the night is all about illegal street racing. The police force appears to be active during both the day and night cycle, but their aggressiveness ramps up when the sun goes down.

Need For Speed Heat

Think you’ll just avoid the cops and mainly do day races? It seems that won’t be possible, with the ‘reputation’ points needed to unlock certain parts and vehicles only able to be obtained through street racing at night.

The money to fund those upgrades can only be earned through the daytime races too, so it appears moving forward in the game will require an even split of day/night activity.

Need For Speed Heat

Some other interesting elements of Heat were also revealed in the gameplay trailer, namely the ability for players to customise the actual sound of their exhaust, with sliders for tone, timbre, overrun and resonance able to be fiddled with to your satisfaction. Probably pointless as far as performance is concerned, but hey, sound matters.

If you think introducing exhaust customisation is a bit ridiculous, Heat also introduces branded apparel into the world of car games. Want to deck out your character in a full Adidas outfit? You can! Definitely a feature for all you hypebeasts out there.

Need For Speed Heat officially goes on sale on November 8 across PC, Xbox One and Playstation 4.
