Here’s Every Car in Need for Speed Heat, and How to Unlock Them

Need for Speed Heat 1 (1)

The next entry in the Need for Speed series is here.

It feels like forever since we were tearing up the streets in Need for Speed Payback, and while it wasn’t the worst game ever, it was a bit of a disappointment. Thankfully its follow-up, Need for Speed Heat doesn’t make the same mistakes. It’s safe to say that it’s the best Need for Speed game in quite a while.

Need for Speed Heat takes elements from previous Need for Speed games and blends them all together to make something that feels like a bit of a greatest hits collection. You have the car customisation and night time racing of the Underground series, the serious street racing of Pro Street, the risk versus reward conundrum of rivals, and more. Needless to say, if you’re a longtime fan of the series, you’re going to enjoy Need for Speed Heat.


But before you pick it up, you might be wondering what cars are available in Need for Speed Heat. You also might be wondering how you unlock them. Lucky for you, we’ve put together a list of every car found in the basic version of the game, and how to make them available for purchase. If you pick up the Deluxe Edition you’ll also be able to add four special edition cars to your garage, but they’re all just pre-modified versions of cars you can find below.
