Once you’ve reached tier 4 of Need for Speed: Shift you have access to some of the most exotic and expensive cars ever produced. These monsters have horsepower numbers well over 500 and make similarly obscene amounts of torque. They are capable of reaching sixty miles per hour in under four seconds and top speeds of over 200.
Technically the slowest of the supercars, the Lamborghini Reventon is still an extremely powerful car. Its V12 engine makes 640 horsepower, allowing the car to accelerate to 60 in 3.4 seconds and up to a top speed of 210 miles per hour. This is slower than the other cars on the list, but the Reventon has a trump card – all wheel drive. This makes it a very easy car to control, and while the Veyron is also All Wheel Drive the Veyron also has to heft around about 500 more pounds. At some points, physics will come into play.
Crazy is a good way of describing Koenigsegg. Despite being hugely fast, the Koenigsegg CCX has no rear spoiler. In real life this is known to make the CCX somewhat skittish, but in Need for Speed: Shift that behavior doesn’t appear to be modeled. As a result, the Koenigsegg CCX is simply fast. 806 horsepower lives under the hood, along with 678 ft-lbs of torque, all of which goes towards the rear wheels.
Pagani Zonda R
The Pagani Zonda R is virtually a race car even in stock form. The Zonda R’s chassis is made mostly of carbon fiber and includes a roll cage straight from the factory. Also available from the factory are front and rear race spoilers which generate significant downforce. The engine produces 750 horsepower, making the Zonda R extremely fast. In fact, it has the highest in-game rating of any stock car in the game.
