The Return Of A Rare 70's Classic
March 20th 2012
The Nissan Fairlady 240ZG comes out of retirement! We retired the Fairlady in December and due to popular demand, have welcomed her back to the NFSW stable of cars.
The Nissan Fairlady 240ZG or Z-car was released in Japan in order to make the car eligible for racing in 1971. Staying true to its racing bloodlines, it is powered by an in-line six engine and featured a signature 190mm long nose, also known as the â€œG-noseâ€. Combining good looks and powerful performance, this vintage racer became an instant classic.
This little gem set the standard for sportscar production. First impressions and racing results count, so get yours today in the Car Dealer.
Essence Of Pure Racing Glory
March 16th 2012
The Porsche 911 RSR 3.0 â€œEnduroâ€ edition is your track-prepped racer! It was the go-to car for the private racer in the 70â€™s and we are proud to offer you this completely custom version in NFS World.
Porsche engineers stripped out the non-essentials and with a liberal use of lighter thinner composites and alloys, shedding a great deal of weight off of the road-going 911.
With a HP/Liter rating of 110bhp, the 3.0l engine rocketed the car into the history books of racing..
This car sports a satin grey and black two tone finish, coupled with a red key line to pick out the unique details. The race livery features sponsor logos and a 999 race number. The red underbody glow and jet black license plate matches the two tone BBS wheels with black centers and satin red lips.

Your Aston Martin DBS Is Here!
March 16th 2012
The Aston Martin DBS is a technological masterpiece. Besides boasting a supremely powerful V12 engine and 510hp, this race-bred exotic also made extensive use of ultra-light carbon fibre to keep its weight as low as possible. A new front bumper helped channel airflow while a widened front and rear track gave the car its solid stance.
Hand-assembled at their dedicated facility in Cologne, Germany, itâ€™s also the first time carbon ceramic matrix brakes were employed on an Aston Martin. You wonâ€™t be using them much, as youâ€™ll have the throttle pinned and adequate downforce to rocket you around the track.
For pure Tier 3 performance without compromise, add the Aston Martin DBS to your garage today! Now available for Top-Up!
A Tier 1 Knockout
March 14th 2012
Based on the Warner Brosâ€™ cartoon character, the â€œRoad Runnerâ€ was projected to sell about 2000 cars in 1969. Instead, it sold around 45,000 and was named car of the year by Motor Trend.
Everything essential to performance was beefed up un this muscle car beauty. Boasting a HEMI engine, one of the best engines of the muscle car era, and a signature lift-off fiberglass hood fastened by hood pins, the Road Runner packs enough punch for any muscle car fans.
Knock out the competitors with this powerful Tier 1! Head over to the Car Dealer and get yours today!
Your Camaro ZL1 Is Here!
March 9th 2012
The â€œEliteâ€ line-up adds some muscle to the already powerful Camaro ZL1! With excellent driving dynamics, a supercharged V8 engine boasting 550hp, the Camaro ZL1 is not only Chevroletâ€™s highest performing car, but itâ€™s also venturing into Supercar territory.
The powerful persona of the Camaro ZL1 is made even beefier with this exclusive one-off Elite version. The entire concept is dragster-inspired, starting with the huge 45â€ drag tires that feature Need for Speed whitewall wheels! For the first time ever in NFS World, players are able to place vinlys on the rear window which will help their unique style and creation!
Like most race cars, the full interior has been gutted and the fuel filler is on the right side where the passenger seat used to be. Additionally, this masterpiece features wheelie bars with struts and supports, a full roll cage, window mesh on the driverâ€™s side window and a shift tack on the dashboard. The driver will even be sporting a helmet â€“ another first in NFS World!
For an even more menacing look, enjoy the 2 giant intercoolers and side exhaust that shoot out flames. Drive in hood-cam to see flames shoot straight from the engine!
The entire car is pitched forwards and the centre portion of the top of the car has been beveled down, which aids in creating aerodynamic downforce.
This super-charged car also sports a metal badge, exclusive only to NFSW Elite Cars.
Be among the first to add this muscle Elite to your garage! Head over to the Car Dealer and join the â€œEliteâ€ club today!

Take "Gymkhana" For A Spin
March 6th 2012
The Toyota MR2 â€œGymkhanaâ€ edition is the track toy youâ€™ve always wanted. While the mid-rear layout of this car lends great weight distribution, many tuners have found this a difficult platform to tune. Thankfully, this track-tuned variation is ready to rock, right out of the box.
With its 2.0l, turbocharged 3SGT-E engine belting out nearly 220hp in stock trim, this stripped out time-attack version is destined to carve seconds off of your lap times.
