Best Cars In Need for Speed: Most Wanted

The top 10 best cars in the original Need for Speed: Most Wanted game released in 2005.
The Top Ten
1 BMW M3 GTR

You can only use this car after you beat Blacklist #1 Razor, and rightfully so. Here's a few good reasons.
1) Its top speed and acceleration is very fast. Good in highway, and good in city too.
2) It's heavy enough to take a Heavy Rhino SUV head on, and can definitely knock those Heat 5 Corvettes away.
3) Its handling is one of the best, though it can get oversteery at times.
4) The reason why it has a limited amount of NOS compared to other cars is because it is a very good car already. Giving it an Ultimate NOS would be broken.

This car, along with the not-available-in-career Corvette C6R and Porsche 911 GT2, is among the only three actual race cars in the game, and its performance shows it. It devours the mighty Carrera GT and SLR McLaren, and the police will never have a chance to catch you in it, not even Cross. It's equal in performance to the C6R, but since that one isn't available in Career Mode, the M3 GTR takes the cake. It's also the most iconic car of the NFS series and my favorite car IRL, so definitely #1 for me.

With the absolutely HIGHEST top speed in the game, (Recorded 401km/h) ludicrously fast acceleration, and impressively good handling make for an awesome car. The only real bad thing is the nitrous, which is rather scarce for this car. Otherwise, the BMW M3 GTR is the best car available. If you drive it wrong, you'll hit a wall. If you drive it right, you are practically a driving god.

Best car. Moves swiftly due to medium size and excellent acceleration. But has a slippery nature and handling is not first in this car.

2 Porsche Carrera GT

This car is the best, because compared to the BMW, it has better grips and acceleration, and compared to the Murcielago, it has much better handling and NOS. Cars like the McLaren, and the Ford GT cannot compare to the raw power of the Porsche

Carrera GT is so good and fast. It has great power, handling, and strength. I was so scared of the jeeps of cops but when I bought that car the jeeps no matter how strongly heat nothing happens to carrera nothing happen to it. It is the true beast of the road in NFCMW. I defeated Razor easily, I just felt I as was beating Sonny. If you want to win career buy this car up. It is number 1.

One thing is for sure that no mater what car you use in races this car can smoke any car by its acceleration, top speed and handling. If any person who likes to drive like a monsters in races this car is the Bull and that is why its is the best car for real street racing madness and chaos. (Porsche Carrera GT)

With a fully upgraded Carrera GT you'll easily beat the lap times you can get with the M3 GTR. Add a few junkman parts and it will humiliate the BMW. This car is the car that will set the best lap times in almost any race, just look at the world record lap times, the vast majority of those were set by the Porche Carrera GT.

3 Lamborghini Murciélago

Murcielago is THE ABSOLUTE BEST when it comes to pursuits. It's quite heavy and that works to it's advantage when it comes to overcoming roadblocks. At top speed it can make even make the heat level 5 cops fly. It's even better than Carrera GT, BMW M3 and McLaren. It's heaviness also provides it with good handling even at top speeds. And if we increase the handling and steering in 'Performance Tuning', then it can also be used in races. When it comes to races, it's second only to Carrera GT.

Murcielago is the best car of the game in my experience because its speed full handling full and acceleration almost full. You can beat any of the car in this game easily with Murcielago if you can Handel Murcielago perfectly. I think this car is #1 in the game you can easily complete your milestone challenges with this car because this car got great strength wow

The Best car I have ever drive. With this car anyone can beat any blacklist, any race, any milestone. Its handling good and very faster. Nitro is enough. In shortly a better version of Gallardro. I prefer this one than BMW M3 GTR. With it awesome tricks can make. Only Mercedes-Benz SLR McLearn F1 can face this car. Both quite equal. it's better speed and SLR better acceleration. One who CANNOT drive better should go for it. and one who CAN drive better DEFINITELY go for it. B|

Probably the worst car in game, the handling of it is absolutely disgusting especially in high speed, in my opinion Gallardo compared to this is nothing.
And if you are asking for the best car in game it is Carrera GT or Ford GT.

4 Lamborghini Gallardo

Now, people may wonder why's this car so good? It doesn't that good acceleration before you've won versus Ronnie (Since every part'll be unlocked after defeating Ronnie). Well, no.. It hasn't, but every car-enthusiast should have sufficient knowledge to know, that it's not all about that. But what'd I mean by that? Well, let me eleborate:
The car's handling is just.. Insane. I got Junkman tires after defeating Ronnie, and that's where this car should not be underestimated, cause after you've completed Ronnie, you're getting the best top-speed and acceleration, and it's handling is excessive (especially with the tires). However, if you got ALL the junkman parts.. There's then no challenge, whatsoever. If I were Razor and heard that correct, I would've shot myself and give the BMW M3 GTR, since even THAT car won't be able to compete. You should really not skeptic about this car, since it's the best buy you'll get.. Just remember to an addition, that you should get the Junkman parts ...more

I can bet this is the car you will need for collecting bounty. It has great speed, acceleration and power like a monster. It's like a mad bull on the street. It has great power that can smoke any car on the road. It is also fun driving it. So I suggest this is the best car.

Just an all around beast, an (ironically) better version of the Murciélago, and one of the most versatile cars in the game. Any race, any pursuit, this is a great car. Its top speed, acceleration, and handling are all amazing. Fit it with Junkman parts? Razor will be a cakewalk. Plus it's such a beautiful car and I really wish Lamborghini would bring it back. Whereas the Gallardo is slender and sleek, the Huracán got it all wrong and became a thicc bull.

This car is superb car. This car is very good for racing, chase to police. I love this car. I finished whole game with this car. In my experience none of the cars in nfs most wanted came above the abilities of LAMBORGHINI GALLARDO. This is very good car to BMW M3 GTR.

5 Mercedes Benz SLR McLaren

My favourite car. I don't know why is the M3 first, when you get it only for the last pursuit. This would be better number 1. This car has perfect handling, amazing acceleration and in pursuits pierces through roadblocks and spike strips like a hot knife through butter.

I Bet to differ with all those who say The BMW M3 is the best car cause' the Mclaren is the best car in my opinion. Great speed and handling but super awesome acceleration. That car can smoke any car that gets in its way when fully upgraded, mayb even a Bugatti. I defeated Razor with this ride. Moves like a bullet. Now I see why it's so expensive.

"My favorite thing in this car is its perfect acceleration.Has nice top speed and handling but the acceleration is just wow! "

Mclaren the $2,000,000 car NFS edition I beat the whole game with it. I got it when I got the game no hacks. I just started saving up. You guys can do that too. It wasn't that hard. It only took me 2 hours straight. The car was McLAREN MP4-12C NFS edition. I got it last week

6 Lotus Elise

It's peferct for thight corners because of its awesome handling. Where other cars start drifting this beast still has grip and gets you around the corners at a very high speed. Love this car and don't wanna drive any other.

Absolutely superb handling with minimal loss of speed, just not very suited for pursuit; can be easily blocked/contained by police cars due to its low strength (which makes sense, for it is a tiny car). Also kinda bad response when oversteering, but extremely fast and good overall handling.

Lotus elise.The undisputed champion in this game.
I spent so much time on the game and tested out literally all the cars on every track
My conclusion, NO CAR CAN COMPARE TO THE LOTUS ELISE once you crank everything up on it
If you think otherwise, I assure you, you are horribly mistaken, and clearly most of you are, just judging by the votes. It's a no-brainer! If you still disagree, enjoy your time being wrong

I have tried all the cars which are placed over it in this list.. Lotus Elise is the best car in the whole game. It has good acceleration and very high speed. The handling is simply amazing. It totally seems to follow my thoughts! I recommend everyone to try out this beauty.

7 Chevrolet Cobalt SS

I replayed the game and found that after continuously upgrading it throughout the blacklist and putting 1 or 2 junk man parts on it that it refuses to be outdone. I have no intention on keeping this car but I simply cannot get rid of it because working at baron, the cars don't touch the Cobalt in stats. I honestly didn't expect to keep it after I defeated sonny but here I am going after Baron in it. My only complains it that's it's front wheel drive and rather light, making ramming roadblocks lower than 100mph suicide. And the light SUVs will put a hurting on it, that's how mine got its first impound strike.

This is one of the best cars in this game. It was my first car, I beat all the black list using it. With upgrades it can reach 320 m/ph on straight line (without n20). And it has the best rain-handling. It is good for racing, but you need to know how and when to do the curves. And finly on the pursuit... IT IS A MONSTER. I never got busted with this car. (aprox 28 pursuits, 1h and 20 minutes the longest one) This is a hard car who can easy destroy a heat 2 car, and even SUV. Once I destroyed 2 SUV'S using it. As a end this is a cool car.

Can play all game only with this car. Full equipped makes the game ridiculous easy. Good to drive, have a good final speed. And the torque is awesome! You need to put a second gear just after start the races, and uses a little nitro, it always put you in front of the other cars... Even on the drag races.

Best car ever in the game, the best for police chase. The best thing about this car is that even after getting spiked the damm thing still runs with less speed but still movies quickly fast enough to evade the chase. My opinion is it is the best car in the game good for racing drag and best for speed trap and checkpoints

8 Porsche Cayman S

You see, this car is the best. I upgraded this car to the best performance and its still better than the Lamborghini Gallardo in its full performance.
I checked with the Carrera too, still it's better in handling, acceleration, and top speed. But I have to agree, Lamborghini Gallardo is the best in handling. If you're buying a car in NFS MW, old friend, the best one is the Porsche Cayman S, the only car which is better than this is the Bmw Gtr thingy. Man, this rocks if you upgrade it fully. I hope you buy this one and good luck with all your blacklist members you have to beat. BUY THIS ONE! AND READ THIS ONE!

This is a wonder full car I spent all my money in it and it helped me to beat the #3 in blacklist I love this car mainly for it's amazing speed & HANDLING especially. I wish to own this car in future.

Reached till blacklist 3 (ronnie) and has been my choice car for every race, if u though max it out till blacklist 4, it handles better than gallardo and is faster too.. sticky handling is great for circuits

This is a lightweight and its handling is perfect, this is only car that I feel in total control, I tried every other car but this came out on top.

9 Dodge Viper SRT 10

Rapid dream car great in races and milestones its stunningly beautifull so fast and powerful my fave car by miles ticks all the right boxes for me it is shows no mercy and kicks a$$. Vote Viper.

Beautifully stunning ride it has it all by miles the best, it's my fave and wins it for me excellent in races and milestones smashes it, no mercy.

This is having the most powerful naturally aspirated engine (8.0L V8).
Amazing sound as well and is MUCH better than the Lamborghini Gallardo.

Perfect car for police chases with its heavy front and incredibly fast acceleration and speed

10 Volkswagen Golf GTI

Best car in all game! Maxed out goes like hell, stays on road like a ruberband, accelerates like no other car int the game, without any needed burnout

Buy a one after playing undergroun 2, because this will give you extra 5000, complete the whole game with it with a performance marker applied on it every blacklist win, and you get a 387 km/h with the best handling, best acceleration, best everything.

YES! This is one of the best cars! I won all the Blacklist members with this monster. Handling acceleration are wow and it reaches 350+ trick is the performance markers! Try it out

If you fully upgrade the car, it will be the best car in the game. Perfect handling and fully customizable performance.

The Contenders
11 Chevrolet Corvette C6

One of the best cars in the game. If I didn't get Webster's car, I'd immediatly quit and restart the whole race again until I finally get his car.

You're not joking around when you achieved this car, especially if you get Webster's (Blacklist #5) car, 'cause that thing's just as good as any car above - even better in all honesty. However, if you're buying this car instead of getting the pink slip from Webster, then it's not any good, as Webster's car has some locked performance upgrades.

The Chevy Corvette C6 is the fastest car in the game. I beat this game multiple times and I used it every time. I race it against every car, I've upgraded other cars with junkman parts and raced it against them and nothing can beat it (even the Porsche Carrera GT). The fastest best handling car in the game!

Oh yes! Best Car in the game, Webster's car is so cool it matches my coolness,speed and power! This car changed my life and brought me to blacklist #1!

12 Porsche 911 Turbo S

In my opinion the best car of the game: Won all the races from blacklist 4 to 1 with it, got about 4m bounty and beat Razor. This car is marvelous!

It's a cop car murderer. Highly agile, strong, acts like a tank. Most stable car of the game. It will never spin on you or get out of hand.

This car is great for pursuits along with a "lower" price

13 Ford GT

Starts off with weak acceleration, but great top speed and unbelievable handling. Once fully upgraded (you have to beat Ronnie for half of the upgrades) you won't believe your own driving.
This car can actually take the corner at the Camden Tunnel at 200km/h!

The lightest, the fastest, best handling, high-end grip, fierce looking, and the loudest engine.
Only blow it up by all junkman performance packages and it will be the most devilish car in the game.

Best car in the game, followed by the M3 GTR.
Has proper horses under the hood, brilliant handling and acceleration values.

Ford gt tops 426kmph so it's a pretty good car for chop chase and if it have a little bit more acceleration it's the best car in most wanted.

14 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution VIII

I have one I these. It is fully upgraded and has junkman parts on as well. It drives like an absolute dream and when it drifts u can get it back in line easy. The Mitsubishi is the best car I have and that's final

This monster, when fully equipped, can beat anything in sharp corners to broad highways. The best of the best when used efficiently.

So op with ultimate and junkman parts, all stats was over the max limit. So responsive in any situation. Make the game easy.

Rank 13? this is one of the best cars I've ever driven. Top 1 for handling, great for corners and easy braking.

15 Toyota Supra

Vic was nice enough to loan his pink and I use it for everything the crapy handling makes for a whippy fast drifter that once you get the hang of is by far the best car that won't kill your wallet the #1 car is the dodge viper SR10 when fully upgraded it handles just like the supra and won't do a 30 sec burnout that gets you busted like the corvette C6 both the supra and viper r by far the best get one and you have one. I also have been trying out the RX-7 got a special set of tires made it so much better if you want a good car use makers to get performance parts

I love toyota Supra more than anything. Even in real life, it is my dream car. Fast and Furious. Easy handling if you like drift. You can used to it easily. Same here. Started using it from blacklist 13 to 1. Beat razor with it. If it is fully upgraded, it is faster than any car.

I'm already up to Blacklist #3 using just this car, amazing speed and handling gets you out of any sticky situation, and great utilization of the NOS can get you through any blockade of cops. Perfect car.

My all time favourite, the Supra. Once upgraded and tuned correctly, not only it will haul in the races, it's also a beast against the 5-0! Started playing the game again yesterday on PC and I'm currently using it for the cops, heat level 5 and not busted once :3

16 Subaru Impreza WRX STi

Can’t beat a rally bred street car with a rumbling flat four 2.5 liter turbocharged engine. When you think Subaru you think impreza you think WRX STI. The perfect rivalry with the Mitsubishi Evolution 8

I finished the 10 minutes police chase with this one and I didn't get busted even one time. only you have to tune it to max and start killing cops

Good handling and acceleration, perfect for tight cornering. My personal favorit.

Best car in the game! Good top speed perfect handling

17 Porsche 911 Carrera S
18 Aston Martin DB9

A good mix of top speed, acceleration, and handling, this car can beat anything in the game with the right tuning. I personally think every car is good given the right performance tuning but DB9 doesn't need a lot of tweaks to maximize its potential

Definitely better than any other car in this game, not just in pursuits. A true killer!

James bond rides, its have a good
Accel, top speed, and handling

Man really it should be up!
I just made 1,002,208,849 bounty in a single pursiut
This car is a monster!

19 Mitsubishi Eclipse

Awesome ride again a great option I had a few on the game in the past till my ps2 broke, ace ride very nice to drive handles great amazing speed wicked in pursuits, looks great with the tiger viynel.

A great car. You can easily beat the whole game with it if you keep on upgrading it

Best car ever its cheap and becomes unbelievably good when upgraded

Good car, good acceleration but recovery is not good.
Excelent for tight tracks.

20 Ford Mustang GT

Seriously speaking, this car is made for advanced players due to its handling.
Overall, this looks PHENOMENAL. You look good in pursuits, you look good in races, you look good as a rival.
Useful after blacklist 9. Good straight line acceleration.
I literally felt jealous when I saw Razor in that in the beginning..

Best car for pursuits... It just smashes all the suv's and breaks through the road blocks... But it's not fast enough in heat level five...

Depending on what kind of races you drive, the Mustang is perfect in dragraces and sprintraces. Absolutely the best car in the game

I played with it and my bounty was 2,227,682

21 Mazda RX-8

The Mazda RX-8 is the best one for me because it has a very high revving wankel 1.3 liters engine. Sure, it does not hold true for an arcade that an engine would last too much while racing in the game's level, still, it's amazing to hear it roaring at higher tunning levels, simply because this car was meant to be fully customized by all sorts of parts, and altough I don't change the performance modifiers much, I still do not think there are much better vehicles for the price you pay if you do it like me and buy all upgrades first hands up when playing NFS MW. You can't go wrong with this car, unless you're thinking into doing pursuits then you're better off with something else, but for racing and sprints this is definitely one of the best options: Think about it: Front engine rear traction, highly customizable and (despite what people might think otherwise), it has a cool smile in it's front hood, so go for the Mazda.

This car must be higher because she's fast, good for puirsuits up to level 5 then chalenge begins even she is faster than most supercars if you tune a bit and one boss who had corvete I couldn't beat him with full tuned viper but beat him like a child with basic tuned rx8. This car is best bud sad how crappy she is in Carbon.

My second fave it looks beaut it handles like a dream it's so fast leaves cops for dead wicked handlin and acceleration, I use this ride the most you can get it by beating Izzy, its insane how good this ride is and it deserves to be in the no.2 spot with the viper in number 1.

Very fun to drive, I like it better than my evo vi. It handles so well and let's you slide thru curves easily and effectively, also good for drags but the rx7 is better at that. Also the high range of rpm (10k I think) makes it easy to drive it manual

22 Mazda RX-7

I'm not too sure how this car could handle and speed through the course, but I am purchasing it as we speak, I will keep you updated (Jay)

Perfect for mid-game and still drives like a beast in the top 5

Handling... I love it!

I had this car since the start of the game and it is the fastest car I have so far. fastest I did with is was 389km/h but not fully upgrade

23 Audi A4 3.2 Quattro

Very very nice car nothing bad to say about it it has it all if you have seen the transporter movies you will fall for it if its yet to amase you.

If you tune it, its always the best car at a level (Up to #3)

Waste car I have seen in my life cost is better

24 Mercedes-Benz CLK 500
25 Audi TT 3.2 Quattro

A god car to drive around in

Best car to start with career once purchase this car,get update parts by defeating other players
best body building,acceleration,speed and handling
