NFS World has been retiring cars and will continue to do so on a regular basis, so if you have had your eye on a certain beloved car, get it while you can!

With plenty of new cars being introduced weekly, we’ll look to “existing” cars and temporarily retire them. Owners of the retired cars will still be able to race them, whereas others will need to wait until the car is once again available. Retired cars will become available again in the future but at no guaranteed schedule.

As of March 8, the following cars will be retired from our current inventory:

Porsche 911 Carrera S - Snowflake 2.0
Porsche 911 Carrera S (991) Blue
Chevrolet Corvette Stingray 1967
Ford Mustang Boss 302 - 1969
To help our community get their hands on these cars before they’re gone, these cars will be on sale for 40% off until Thursday, March 8!!! Now is your chance so don’t miss out! Get these cars in your garage today!



The Clio is a class-act supermini offered by the renowned French auto manufacturer Renault.

The Renault Sport Clio V6 is a nutty, wide body hot hatch that features a zippy V6 engine that outputs 250hp to the rear wheels.

Discover what it feels like to perform moves that would be prohibited on public roads today! The Clio is now available for Top-Up!



The fans have spoken, and today we’re activating the “Manufacturer Battles” playlist!

We’re also making it another Double XP Weekend. Since last weekend was so much fun, we thought we would do it again!

The NFS team will be online from 2pm – 3pm (PST). Add them now:

NFSCoulter [Xbox]
NFSPetra [PS3]

Check out our Facebook page throughout the week as we will be putting up another poll to see which of the two remaining playlists get turned on next week!



The fastest and most powerful Bentley to date, the Continental Supersports Coupe is a real head-turner. This 2-seater features 621 hp and a “Quickshift” transmission which cuts its shift times in half.

An all-wheel-drive system, twin turbocharger intercoolers as well as carbon fibre panels aids in delivering supercar performance. The Continental Supersports Coupe set new performance benchmarks not only for Bentley, but for all sports luxury vehicles.

Tuned for the popular Team Escape game mode, this “Juggernaut” edition is ready to smash through any roadblock or rhino that gets in its way!

Get behind the wheel and dominate “Underground” and “High Stakes” today. Now available in the Car Dealer!



Lamborghini Miura is widely considered to have begun the trend of high performance, two-seater, mid-engine sports cars. At its launch, the Miura SV was the fastest production road car available and we are pleased to add this vintage exotic to our NFS World car list!

Upon its inception, the Miura provided unmatched performance figures. At nearly 400hp, this mid-engine beauty brought about many of today’s staples for Lamborghini, namely a mid-rear mounted V12 engine. Its handling complimented the engine's performance, but was not as predictable as that of its front-engine counterparts.

The Lamborghini Miura is where it all started and helped coin the term “Supercar”. With only 150 ever built, you have a rare chance to jump in and take this classic for a cruise on the NFS World streets.

To drive a piece of history, stop by the Car Dealer today!



The Nissan GT-R SpecV (R35) certainly looks a lot meaner than the stock GT-R. This coupe is without a doubt, the most radical road-going racer Japan has ever produced.

With increased power plus donning new carbon fiber pieces, including a rear spoiler, front grille and brake ducts, this Tier 3 rocket is what you have been waiting for.

A sports car that takes all the punishment professional racers can dish out and begs for more, the SpecV (R35) is a great choice to dominate the best in class.

To add “Godzilla” to your garage, go to the Car Dealer today!
