NFS Carbon is supercharged

Need for Speed Carbon(WMV, 7.74MB)

Friday 23 June 2006
Need for Speed Carbon will bring super-powered sports cars back to the modding racing series in style this November - starting with the stunning Lamborghini Gallardo and Porsche Carrera GT, which you can see in these brand new screens. Just hit the images tab for more of the every-format racer.

This time around, NFS Carbon will be demanding you risk more than just your carefully-waxed metal bride for each race. The high-speed chases shift outside the city to treacherous, cliff-edge canyon roads, and winning races is vital to expand your 'crew's' control of 'turf' in the city. Urban-a-licious.

We've also got a trailer for you to gawp at, featuring the kind of heavily-modified cars the last few NFS games have been mad for. But we're all about the supercars - the original Need for Speed featured Lambos, Ferraris and the like, but recent sequels have only offered up a few Porsche 911's and the odd Viper, so it's great to see these purebred marques come roaring back.
