The Need for speed franchise is quite diverse in what they offer players. Some games in the series are for car enthusiasts, others are for players who love the arcade feel of the racing series. But whatever the reason, Need for speed has left a mark on gaming. While the franchise isn’t perfect, it still offers a lot to players in terms of what they can do, so every game in the Need for speed series has something for everyone.
This makesNeed for speed: heat accessible to a wide range of players. In addition, being an open world racing game, it is one of the best games in the series. However, the way each game is played is only half of all Need for speed game. The cars are a big part of any racing game. If players want to get the most out of this title, they should look for some of the fastest cars Need for speed: heat has to offer.
5 McLaren P1 ’14
Once players get into the higher performance cars, they will find that there are many compromises. For example, top speed may be the highlight, but that comes at the expense of acceleration or handling. However, players who have this McLaren won’t have much to deal with. What sets the P1 apart from its peers is that it an all-round balanced car, with each section working in harmony. The best part is that the player doesn’t need to upgrade it that much, but since the Need for speed games encourages players to do this, it’s still not a bad idea.
This car allows players to win every race and escape from all police chases even if they reach level 5 chase. If players choose to play with P1, they will see many more wins. Still, they should note that while it’s one of the fastest, it isn’t the fastest. But because it’s a well-balanced supercar, players won’t have much trouble keeping up.
4 Ferrari LaFerrari ’13
A small step up from the McLaren P1, players will have a hard time choosing between the two. Both are great cars and do well in all areas. However, players who opt for the LaFarrari will have something of an edge, which will only get bigger with upgrades. The LaFerrari has better acceleration and more horsepower in general than the P1, but owners of the P1 can upgrade to keep up.
The good news is that the LaFerrari is even more customizable than the P1. Although the P1 has a certain limit, the LaFerrari doesn’t have the same limit when it comes to customization. However, the LaFerrari is not as balanced as the P1 and it takes more time to get used to. But it makes up for that in other areas, like power and top speed. It is lower to the ground, so it can only be ridden on one type of surface – this is very important in police chases.
3 McLaren P1 GTR ’15
Need for speed: Heat is an odd entry in the franchise as it has divided the community. However, one of the best things about the game is that it offers players countless options. Having multiple cars of the same brand gives players a lot to choose from. The P1 GTR shows that. If players want a safer, less stressful race, they can pick its little brother, the P1 ’14 mentioned above. But for players who dare to live a little, the P1 GTR is for them.
This car takes everything from the P1 to another level. While it has a slightly lower top speed (which can be upgraded), players can own the roads in it. The Need for speed: heat upgrade system works like an RPG meaning there are different parts players can get. The P1 GTR can easily get those elite and ultimate parts. As long as they use this guide, their car is equipped for anything. Even if it is fully upgraded, the P1 GTR is best for roads, so players should stay on it as much as possible as the off road is quite brutal.
2 Ferrari FXX-K Evo ’18
Not only is this a very fast car, but it also has one of the best engines in the whole game. The FXX-K gives players so much speed and power, and when the cops are fended off during the chases, the FXX becomes the player’s best friend. At the start, the FXX pushes players to first place. To be one of the top rated cars in Need for speed: heat for acceleration, and gets better with each upgrade.
However, like the rest of the cars on this list, keeping them on the road is a must for players. They can immediately lose control on any uneven surface. This aspect will not be such a problem, because: the FXX-K has some of the best handling, with which a P1 driver gets his money. Racing in this car will not give players much trouble as long as they stay on a normal road. With the power and acceleration combined, the owner of this car will pose a threat even to the faster players.
1 Koenigsegg Regera ’16
As players encounter the Regera, which is not only a car that is hard to beat, but also the fastest car with the upgrades, choosing them is an easy choice. Ever since Need for speed: heat uses the Frostbite engine, players can see how beautiful the game looks at top speeds.
The Regera allows players to do that while staying safe. With his near perfect handling and its cannon-like launch, players will more often than not be ahead of others. The interesting thing about the Regera is that it’s curiously decent on the off-road parts of the world, although players will encounter problems if they go in those spots. But unlike the other cars on this list, drivers using the Regera off-road will be less affected by it. This in turn makes it a very versatile car and does something for every type of driver.
