    "this was such a disappointment to lose. the poster car of the game and i get cheated like that? just made it all the more satisfying to get it back and race again afterwards! definitely the best car in need for speed: most wanted on both a performance and sentimental level."

    "i feel this car is more of an honorable mention. yes, it has bad handling when you buy it but having a little extra money to buy on performance parts (or visuals, if you wanna look good) helps and it does get better as soon as you get it better performance parts."
