This week's update of Need for Speed World introduces two new cars: The Lexus LFA and the Nissan 200SX "Hashiriya 14" Edition!
Lexus LFA Description:
"The LFA is the crowning jewel in Lexus’ brand. This naturally aspirated V10 rocket has undergone many technological advances. Lexus pushed the development boundaries by using one of only two circular looms in existence, to painstakingly weave the dual tube carbon fiber components that go into making the LFA. It’s these types of technical marvels that make the LFA the king of the Lexus lineup.
The V10 makes over 550hp and revs to more than 9000rpm. This type of performance makes for a very exciting and unique “Formula 1” style exhaust note. The high strung, race-inspired engine revs so quickly, that a standard analog tachometer could not keep pace!"
Nissan 200SX "Hashiriya 14" Edition Description:
"With the Drift and Time Attack movement in full force around the globe, finding a clean 200SX to customize and then build your dream car, is getting more and more difficult.
The Hashiriya 14 features a 217 HP turbocharged SR20DET engine that belts out some respectable power, which then can easily be upgraded to stratospheric levels. Featuring “sticker bombed” rear quarter covers and additional “wall kisses” from prior runs, this custom 200SX is ready for any street race. The sponsor’s stripe down the center speaks to the drivers’ skill level, while the race number 14, is a tribute to the chassis. Staying true to the culture, the work vs. wheels are a staple within the drift scene.
For the true car customizers, there's simply a lot to gain when adding this tuner to your collection. Whether you desire an aggressive stance, a flush-fitted look or going for the raw stripped out racer appeal, this Nissan 200SX is awaiting your creativity."
Slightly Mad Studios' ambitious project C.A.R.S. is making progress! The developers of NFS Shift and Shift 2 Unleashed started with C.A.R.S. ("Community Assisted Race Sim") in a new era of crowd-funding and give the player the possibility to take part in the development of the game and provide him with current development builds.
A new unofficial trailer shows off some racing action - all cars and tracks seen in the video trailer below are already included in the current development builds:
So far it looks quite promising and we will see how the innovative project will develop. If you want to get involved in the development of CARS, you can find more information on the official website:
