Need for Speed: World Edit

The Firebird Formula was made available on December 1st, 2011 to Need for Speed: World players as a Tier 1 vehicle. Since August 22nd, 2012, it has been featured as a B Class vehicle. A in-game cash variant was introduced on September 18th, 2012, which was retired on March 19th, 2013.

The SpeedBoost variant was retired one day later.

The SpeedBoost variant is upgraded with Amerikon Speedsystems Street Tuned parts and costed 2,600. It has a 516 overall rating. The in-game cash variant has a C Class rating and 419 overall rating. It costed 700,000.

The in-game cash variant is upgradeable to B Class.

The Firebird is not strongly influenced by heavy steering but does feel stiff in slow corners. Its acceleration is among the best in C Class and better than that of both Plymouths in the game, although its nitrous power appears to be lacking compared to the Chevrolet Chevelle SS ‘. Standard top speed is 135 mph (218 km/h). The B Class variant hits 166 mph (267 km/h) as top speed.

Need for Speed: The Run Edit

The Firebird Formula appears in Need for Speed: The Run as a Tier 1 vehicle. It is unlocked upon beating one Autolog recommendation.

Due to its 0 to 60 mph time, the Firebird is the fastest accelerating Tier 1 car. With a Very Difficult handling rating, its steering is reminiscent of other muscle cars in the game.

Its top speed is easily outmatched by newer Tier 1 from the 1980’s and 2000’s.

The NFS Edition of the Firebird Formula is featured as a Tier 4 car and unlocked after beating 15 Multiplayer Group Objectives. It is customised with a body kit and painted in black. On the side skirts, a orange strip can be seen.

Its engine output was increased to 708 bhp @ 6,200 rpm. Top speed is 189 mph (304km h). The acceleration of the NFS Edition is similar to that of the Dodge Challenger R/T NFS Edition.

Trivia Edit
