Cars & Customization

Your garage is where the magic happens and it’s here you’ll make iconic cars your own with the most authentic customization in Need for Speed history. Take a car from stock to stock plus awesome in the blink of an eye.

Visually customize your ride with the hottest after-market brands, including Rocket Bunny, Seibon Carbon and Rauh-Welt Begriff. Equip the world’s wildest parts to build your one of a kind masterpiece.

From side skirts to spoilers, fenders to wing mirrors, tires, rims and much more, almost every area of the car is available for you to craft.

Once you’re done with the parts, Need for Speed’s brand new Wrap Editor will give you everything you need to let your imagination run free. Start off by easily selecting from a range of options to create your perfect paint job, from changing the hue and saturation to getting that matte black finish you’ve always dreamed of.

The wrap editor also comes with a huge variety of decals, allowing you to select graphics from leading brands or choose from a range of patterns, shapes, flags and more.

Show off your creativity on each area of the car’s bodywork and windows; move, rotate and scale to turn simple shapes into a multi-layered masterpiece.

Built from the ground up, the Need for Speed Wrap Editor gives you the power to create a ride that expresses your personality.

Performance upgrades let you max out the potential of your cars. Beef up your engine to increase your horsepower, acceleration and top speed. Switch out parts; from your cam shaft to your clutch, from your suspension to your ECU, from your nitrous to your turbo.

Personalized handling lets you find that perfect setup, allowing you to get your car handling exactly how you want it. Move the master slider between drift and grip, or fine tune individual settings.

Change tire pressures, downforce, brake bias and more. Want a drift focussed ride? No problem. More grip? You got it.

Play your own way, in your own one of a kind car and unleash your personality on Ventura Bay.

Five Ways to Play

How will they remember you? In Need for Speed that all depends on how you drive.

In Ventura Bay money talks but reputation (REP) rules the streets and you’ll earn both as you carve your path through the immersive narrative in the game. Compete in events and you’ll earn the money needed to spend big on your dream garage of cars, but it’s REP which is the most important currency of all.

Increase your REP and the people who matter most will start to notice and more importantly, respect you. Want to attract the attention of one of the five real world icons; Magnus Walker, Ken Block, Nakai-San, Risky Devil or Morohoshi-San? Your REP is the key to opening that particular door and with it, a world of new events, cars and customization options await.

So how do you earn REP? That comes down to Need for Speed’s Five Ways to Play; Speed, Style, Build, Crew, or Outlaw.

Five Ways to Play

Introducing Five Ways to Play – Speed, Style, Build, Crew, and Outlaw. Combine all five to create that perfect Need for Speed moment; driving insanely fast, sliding through a corner in your customized ride alongside your friends, whilst being chased by the cops.

Speed is the connection that exists between car and driver that is only present at top speeds. It’s about keeping your nerve and never lifting off the gas. It’s about the adrenaline rush of taking a corner at high speed, having faith that your car will hold firm and not loose grip. The fearless always push the limits.

Style is pure expression through driving, sending your car into a corner sideways with ultimate precision. It’s the feeling of freedom for that split second as your tires leave the ground, when you find yourself in a place where only you and the car exist. For some, style is all that matters.

Build is where you take your car to the extreme through both visual and performance modification. The constant need to improve and personalize, shaping the car to your own vision. Craftsmen build, searching for perfection.

Ride together with your Crew and never hit the streets alone. Put your faith in others as bumpers come within inches of one another. This is the skill of close proximity chaos.

Become an Outlaw, messing with and escaping from the cops. Always looking to raise the stakes through risk vs reward driving, pushing the limits and looking over your shoulder. Live life on the edge as you crave the thrill of the chase.
