The car list of Need for Speed III: Hot Pursuit includes a selection of American, Australian, and European supercars. Almost every car in the game has a showcase option which allows players to view real-life information, pictures, and a 360 degree interior view of the real-life vehicle although downloadable cars do not include showcases. It is also possible to perform fine-tuning and compare cars via in-game performance regardless of class.
