Besides skill, the only other thing you need to secure the bag in Need for Speed Unbound races is the best car available. Out of the 143 cars on offer, finding the best car can be tough. Not to mention, not all cars are built the same way. While some cars are so versatile that you can bet your entire deck on them regardless of the race, others only excel in specific areas, such as drifting, speed, and so on.
In any case, the best cars need to be the ones you can rely on throughout Need for Speed Unbound, whether or not you’re a seasoned driver or just getting started. It took some back-and-forth debate, but we finally settled on the five best cars in Need for Speed Unbound. So if your goal is to win races, here are the five cars you need to have on your radar.
5. Koenigsegg Regera
A mouthful Koenigsegg Regera car is one of the top five best cars you’ll find in Need for Speed Unbound and the most popular car Need for Speed gamers go for. With its fast-accelerating 256mph at top speed, even cars like the Bugatti automobiles barely come close to hitting the highs Koenigsegg Regera is capable of. And when you’re in a fast-racing competition, even those few 2.7 seconds of acceleration right before crossing the finish line will come in handy.
Unfortunately, fast-accelerating cars at the high speeds of the Koenigsegg Regera often come with the downside of a lesser grip on the road. So while taking a sharp turn ahead or merely crossing lanes in hopes of remaining on track, it’s easy for this car to skew outside of the race track, bumping into obstacles you probably won’t see coming at such high speeds. Our advice? Cash out on this one when speed is all you need, and rest assured, the crunch won’t disappoint.
Acceleration: 2.7 seconds
4. Lamborghini Countach LPI 800-4
If you feel the need to take away Koenigsegg Regera’s lose grip when taking sharp turns without compromising on speed then you can, instead, opt for the Lamborghini Countach LPI 800-4. This car is absolutely stunning, jumping off the screen and tugging at the wind alongside you as you drive.
If you particularly don’t want to break the bank on the likes of the Bugatti cars, the Lamborghini Countach LPI 800-4 is a great choice for you. It’s relatively easier to scoop up its much lower $283,000 price, which will serve you well, offering both fast-accelerating speeds and a tight grip on the road. I mean, once you have speed and grip locked down, what more would you need?
Acceleration: 2.7 seconds
3. Ferrari La Ferrari
Ferrari cars have long solidified their place in building race cars, it’s hard not to imagine them taking home the top spot in some shape or form. Of course, more brands are taking over the space, but the Ferrari La Ferrari model has its foot on the ground. I mean, have you seen this car? Props to the body design. I just wanted to take a ride in it after setting my eyes on this beauty.
But far from the look, the feel while driving is over-the-top, offering great traction control race cars need. From start to finish, you know the car is dependable and capable of taking you exactly where you want to go. Of course, brands like the Bugatti may speed past you, but where these high-speed cars lack, the Ferrari La Ferrari excels. The sharp turns, the curves along the race track, and every aspect you anticipate will become hurdles turn into advantages, though don’t pay disregard to the price too.
Acceleration: 2.5 seconds
2. Ford GT
Ford is one of the upcoming brands building high-speed cars. If you haven’t been watching their space, you should. The Ford GT model jumps off the screen as a sports car and a sports car alone, showing its attention to style and elegance, first and foremost. Only when you jump in the driver’s seat do you experience its beast V6 engine designed for high-speed racing and fast acceleration.
The Ford GT is the type of car you go for when you want to win races and look good crossing that finish line. Of course, there are more cars that are better placed to serve you during that crunch time. However, Ford GT has become such a staple in the series for getting the job done either way.
Acceleration: 2.8 seconds
1. Bugatti Chiron Sport
At the top of the list of the best cars in Need for Speed Unbound is, without a doubt, the Bugatti Chiron Sport. Bugatti machines are iconic for their powerful engines, their bewildering horsepower, their exquisite exterior look, and their lightning-fast speeds, all of which the Bugatti Chiron Sport nails to the core. The top speed of this car is slightly higher than that of the Koenigsegg Regera at 261 mph. But even that could go higher pending upgrades, easily climbing up to as high as 380mph.
What’s more? The Bugatti Chiron Sport offers great handling. It’s not the type to fail you when you need it the most. In fact, the Bugatti Chiron Sport tends to come in handy when you want to lose the cops. But for such high-quality gains on all fronts, you’ll need to be ready to break the bank. Still, for 80% more grip in handling, great road traction, and speeds unmatched by any other, that $3.6 million spent in-game will certainly prove well worth every dime.
