The McLaren F1 is the ultimate car in the game. Reaching a top speed of 231 MPH makes it the ideal car for the Proving Ground, although it's top speed is not as useful elsewhere. Beginners should however look elsewhere - this car is a bit of a handful around bends at high speed.

Ferrari F50[edit | edit source]

  • Status: Production
  • Weight: 3,080 lbs
  • Weight Distribution F/R: 40.9% / 59.1%

The ideal beginner's car. This one has average all-round acceleration, speed, and handling. It may not be the best in any category but is a very good compromise. If you're struggling, try this.

Ford GT90[edit | edit source]

  • Price: Not For Sale
  • Status: Prototype
  • Weight: 3,200 lbs (estimated)
  • Weight Distribution F/R: 42% / 58%
  • Length: 176.0 in
  • Width: 77.3 in

  • Brakes F/R: 12.9 in / 12.9 in
  • Tires Front: 275/35ZR18
  • Tires Rear: 355/30ZR19

This car feels fast. It's blue cockpit is either loved or hated, and the Ford badge is hardly supercar related but this is a surprisingly good car. A quick drive through North Country shows the best of this car.

Lotus Elise GT1[edit | edit source]

  • Price: $645,000
  • Status: Prototype
  • Weight: 2,315 lbs
  • Weight Distribution F/R: 40% / 60%

  • 0 to 60 MPH: 3.8 Seconds
  • 0 to 100 MPH: 9.0 Seconds
  • Transmission Type: Manual
  • Gearbox: 6 Speed
  • Engine Type: Twin-Turbo V8

  • Brakes F/R: 14.0 in / 14.0 in
  • Tires Front: 275/35ZR18
  • Tires Rear: 345/35ZR18

Nice looking, a bit slow accelerating, and not super fast, but quite a good car all-round. Not quite a first choice but good for a challenge.

Class B[edit | edit source]

Ford Indigo[edit | edit source]

  • Price: Not For Sale
  • Status: Prototype
  • Weight: 2,300 lbs (estimated)
  • Weight Distribution F/R: 40% / 60%
  • Length: 175.3 in
  • Width: 82.0 in
  • Height: 39.5 in
  • Top Speed: 180 MPH (estimated)
  • 0 to 60 MPH: 3.9 Seconds
  • 0 to 100 MPH: N/A

  • Brakes F/R: 13.2 in / 14.0 in
  • Tires Front: 325/30ZR17
  • Tires Rear: 355/35ZR18

The fastest looking car, it takes its styling from Formula 1 and Indy race cars. It's lower performance figures are compensated for by low weight being 900 lbs lighter than the Ford GT90. A well suited car for the Monolothic Studios track. To unlock this car, you have to either win Tournament Mode or enter a cheat code (see Cheats).

Jaguar XJ220[edit | edit source]

  • Price: $339,000
  • Status: Production
  • Weight: 3,241 lbs (Curb Weight)
  • Weight Distribution F/R: 41.5% / 58.5%
  • Length: 194.2 in
  • Width: 87.5 in
  • Height: 45.3 in
  • Top Speed: 213 mph
  • 0 to 60 MPH: 3.4 Seconds
  • 0 to 100 MPH: 7.9 Seconds
  • Transmission Type: Manual
  • Gearbox: 5 Speed
  • Engine Type: 24 Valve Twin-Turbo V12
  • Displacement: 3,497cc
  • Horsepower: 542 BHP @ 7,200 RPM

  • Brakes F/R: 13.0 in / 11.8 in
  • Tires Front: 255/45ZR17
  • Tires Rear: 345/35ZR18

A bit of an ugly looking car, compared to some of the others on offer, and with a dashboard taken straight out of a Ford Fiesta it would seem, the Jaguar XJ220 has quick acceleration and speed, but can be a bit difficult to handle, as it slides quite a bit.

Isdera Commendatore 112i[edit | edit source]

  • Price: $485,000
  • Status: Prototype
  • Weight: 3,256 lbs
  • Weight Distribution F/R: 47.5% / 52.5%
  • Length: 182 in
  • Width: 73.5 in
  • Height: 40.6 in
  • Top Speed: 212 MPH (estimated)
  • 0 to 60 MPH: 4.0 Seconds
  • 0 to 100 MPH: N/A
  • Transmission Type: Manual
  • Gearbox: 6 Speed
  • Engine Type: 48 Valve V12
  • Displacement: 6,000 cc
  • Horsepower: 408 BHP @ 6,200 RPM

  • Brakes F/R: 13.0 in / 12.2 in
  • Tires Front: 255/35ZR18
  • Tires Rear: 295/35ZR19

It has okay acceleration and faster than a Ferrari. Nothing paticularly special, try it for an easy-ish challenge.

Class C[edit | edit source]

  • Status: Prototype
  • Weight: 2,844 lbs

  • Max Engine Speed: 7,500 RPM
  • Brakes F/R: 12.2 in / 12.2 in
  • Tires Front: 225/40ZR18
  • Tires Rear: 295/40ZR18

A middle of the field car, slow accelerating, and a low top speed, but steady. A car for building up skill to get ready to take on the Lotus Esprit V8.

Lotus Esprit V8[edit | edit source]

  • Price: $82,000
  • Status: Production
  • Weight: 3,042 lbs
  • Weight Distribution F/R: 42.7% / 57.3%

  • 0 to 60 MPH: 4.8 Seconds
  • 0 to 100 MPH: 10.5 Seconds
  • Transmission Type: Manual
  • Gearbox: 5 Speed
  • Engine Type: Twin-Turbo V8
  • Displacement: 3,506 cc
  • Horsepower: 350 BHP @ 6,500RPM
  • Torque: 295 lb/ft @ 4,250 RPM
  • Max Engine Speed: 7,200 RPM
  • Brakes F/R: 11.6 in / 11.8 in
  • Tires Front: 235/40ZR17
  • Tires Rear: 285/35ZR18

A real challenge for the cheapest car on offer. Despite sharing the engine with the Lotus Elise GT1, it can't keep up with the rest of the field. Still it's a classic. Try it out for maximum difficulty.
