Need for Speed: Most Wanted (commonly abbreviated to as NFS: MW or simply Most Wanted) is a 2012 open-world racing video game, developed by British games developer Criterion Games and published by Electronic Arts. Announced on 4 June 2012, during EA's E3 press conference, Most Wanted is the nineteenth title in the long-running Need for Speed series and was released worldwide for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PlayStation Vita, iOS and Android, beginning in North America on 30 October 2012, with a Wii U version following on 14 March 2013.

American Dream Machines
Chevrolet Camaro ZL1: Let the Battle Commence 

The Muscle car wars have been raging since the 60’s, and Chevy’s recent remake of the archetypal muscle car escalated the conflict to new heights.

If it was any more awesome, it’d be banned under the Geneva Convention.

Taking the macho lines and outrageous power that characterised the first Camaro back in ’66, the latest Camaro in its ZL1 form packs a whopping 6.2 liter V8 delivering 580 horsepower. That’s a staggering 440 horsepower more than the standard Camaro your dad drove.

And he wouldn’t just be jealous of the power.  The ZL1 hits 60 mph from a standing start in 3.9 seconds and tops out at 184 mph.

There may be faster or tougher cars in Most Wanted, but there’s nothing that combines speed and strength better than the ZL1. It’s a spectacular all-rounder.

And in the open world of Fairhaven, this gives you options. Lose the cops using straight line speed on the Interstate, hit jumps and shortcuts Downtown, head off road at the coal mine South of Callaghan Industrial or turn and slug it out in the cement works.

Ford GT: Ford’s European Exotic

Ford’s first entry into the supercar world was nothing short of unstoppable, with the GT 40 dominating Le Mans through the late 60’s.

But it wasn’t until 50 years later that Ford reimagined the GT40 as the Ford GT.  It was a celebration of 100 Years of Ford and put America firmly back in the fight for 200mph supercar supremacy.

There’s nothing sweeter than cranking up the volume, tearing through the tunnels in Most Wanted, and hearing the 5.4L supercharged V8 announce your presence with a brutal roar. The fact that it goes 200mph doesn’t hurt either.

Barrelling through city streets at that kind of speed or handling 550hp through tight turns takes a special kind of driver, but on Fairhaven’s out-of-town freeways, the GT’s stunning balance makes drifting those long, sweeping curves a breeze. 

Corvette ZR1: Patriot Missile

Few cars are more American than the Corvette, and the ZR1 is in a class of its own.

Arguably the biggest bang for your buck you can get, it’s as if Chevy poured as much power as they could into the car. Then decided it didn’t have enough and added more.

The LS9 pumps out an astonishing 638 horsepower, putting the Vette into a league of exclusive exotics usually dominated by European manufacturers. It’s very, very fast.

Chevy stripped all excess weight away, even replacing the standard roof with carbon fiber.  It’s so light, we like to minimise weight by driving ours naked. It’s the only way to be sure.

Incredible 15.5in 6-piston brakes will stop the ZR1 on a dime, giving you the manoeuvrability you need to embarrass your friends or Most Wanted’s cops on long straights, winding highways and even the tight back alleys of Downtown Fairhaven. 

Hummer H1 Alpha: Military Grade Ride
The Hummer is big, tough and unstoppable. Join your friends on the start line, then use your size and weight to outmuscle them to the finish.

Wind the hulking Hummer H1 Alpha up to full speed and practically nothing can stop you reaching your destination.

It’s also near impossible to take down. Armed to the gills with a superior steel chassis and insane durability, the Hummer is an absolute tank.

Helping it get up and go are 520 lb-ft of torque, allowing it to handle all terrains. Whatever the world of Fairhaven City throws at it, the H1 Alpha can throw it right back.

Ford F-150 SVT Raptor: Torture Tested

Nothing says durable like the F-150. And nothing says offroad like the SVT Raptor.

According to our friends over at Ford, the F150-Raptor glides over obstacles with ease, thanks to its Fox Racing Shox internal triple-bypass shocks.

Which is ideal in Most Wanted’s Fairhaven City, where those obstacles tend to include police road blocks or European exotics driven by your friends.

With Fairhaven City’s cops in pursuit, you can run using the Raptor’s peerless strength to shrug off impacts or hit the dirt and exploit its awesome off road ability. 

Rumble in the Concrete Jungle: Corvette ZR1
If you ever get the chance to drive the Corvette ZR1, it’s easy to mistake it for a rocket. Known as the most powerful production Corvette to date, Chevrolet actually had to cut over 100 horsepower in order for it to race in a class with other cars “just to be fair.” 

With a modified LS3 engine, dubbed the LS9, as you can see scrawled through the transparent hood, it's 6.2 liters of raw power attached to a chassis. 

It’s the most powerful car ever made by General Motors. 

It has all the straight-line speed you can ask for, topping out at 205mph, but an adjustable suspension that helps with corners as well, nixing the notion that “American cars can’t turn.” 

You won’t be able to stop from grinning in Most Wanted as the car takes you all the way up 66mph using only first gear! The supercharger can pack 10.5psi of boost, helping make your getaway that much quicker.

If there was a downside to the ZR1, it would be its inability to be sneaky. While it may look like a stealth bomber, the incredible exhaust note can be heard for blocks, ruining most chances of sneaking up on rivals and cops to take them down. Then again, by the time they hear you coming, it will probably be too late! 

Yet not everything in Most Wanted is about speed. There are plenty of sharp corners you’ll need to conquer, and the carbon-ceramic brake rotors give you all the help you need, along with some aero additions on the body. 

The Corvette ZR1 is out to prove its mettle, and with all the power underneath the hood, there’s not much more proof needed.
